Tia Adriana's Story

Adrienne Adams, Tia Adriana as she would soon become known, lived a charmed life with her daughter and 3 sons across from the ocean and one of the best surf beaches in Cardiff-by-the Sea, California, North San Diego County. She always loved the "Happy Air" there as her grandchildren would later call it.

She was a native of Southern California, born in 1924 when life was a bit more rough around edges than it is now...There certainly was no internet then.

Her nephew Robert brought her to Sayulita on a vacation from Santa Cruz a few hours to the north of Sayulita. She had been helping him with the birth of his first child, Adrian, her namesake. Robert had helped his sister-in law Maria purchase a small Cantina on a corner in the center of the very tiny village of Sayulita. Robert suggested that his Tia Adriana, as he introduced her, help out a villager in distress and buy the lot next to Maria's Cantina. And she did...When you visit ask us for the whole delightful story.

Tia Adriana brought her spiritual nature, vibrant smile and generous heart to Sayulita in 1979 and continued along with her 4 children to love and support the growing community of Sayulita until this day. Many grandchildren and great grandchildren have enjoyed Tia Adriana's B&B which is now leased and being successfully run by someone outside the family.

For many many years Tia hosted a Posada a few days before Christmas for more than 500 children of the Village. Many grown children ,with children of their own now, remember all the American candy Tia would buy the day after Halloween, pack in big boxes and bring down to fill the bags given each child at the Posada. This would be the first time most had ever experienced a snickes bar...Just imagine their delight!

Tia and the family are now focused on you and their 5 ocean view levels, or Casitas, at the bottom of Nanzal Hill. They call their family compound Casitas Sayulita. They know Sayulita inside and out and have created 5 Casitas with you and your vacation pleasure in mind.

Tia wants you to love and enjoy Casitas Sayulita as much as she has. Originally it was built by her son Greg, Goyo, as a get-away for her. Through the years it has been enjoyed by yoga groups, families and wedding parites who needed more room than the B&B could provide.
