What fun it was being featured on HGTV’s National TV series Beachfront Bargain Hunt. You can actually download it from Amazon here. Our part was about 40 seconds of the whole episode.
Back in the spring, I received a call from HGTV and asked if we would be interested in being part of the show they were filming here with Ashley and Todd Wilkens’ purchase of Casa Paraiso. Of course I said Yes! Javi and I both immediately became so excited. When I spoke with Ashley about it, she too was excited and we talked about how great it would be for the island as well. Even though we all know we want to keep it a secret.
I continued working with HGTV to get some other spots for them for other parts of the show and connections for a place to film our part based on what they were looking for. One thing was they wanted it on the beach with a palapa at sunset. Think about that for a minute… where would that be? Fortunately, Miriam agreed to help us at her place, Su Casa, on Sac Bajo. It was actually perfect. Even the wedding that was going on just before we arrived was super flexible.
Even though this was different than our Dinnertainment experience we offer, it was still SO much fun. My bracelets were making too much noise, so we took those off. There was no blender to blend the roasted tomato salsa, but we made it work.
We had such a great time with Ashley and Todd Wilkens and the crew of the show even came to Fayne’s that night to hang out with us.
