Villa Star of the Sea Retreat Center

Our story begins in 1983, with my MFA in hand, my start in the film industry with my first job working on the Canadian Television show, "The Beach Combers" about a small British Columbia town of Gibsons, and story built around some of the community members. After 35 years, I continue to do film projects and remain active in the film community, and have held positions in the past that include being on the board of the Vancouver Film Festival, on the board of Vancouver Woman in Film and Televison, and chair of Woman in Film International.

As a certified Life and Business Coach, I have mentored clients in transition from one career to another, or becoming an entrepreneur, a branch of Createher Productions

which was founded in 1994, producing television on women in the arts. In 2004. CreateHer Coaching and Viva La Diva Retreats were formed, another arm of our company to encompass life and business coaching in the enrichment of women, and to meet the needs of women looking for a different travel experience, something as yet unrealized by most of the travel community. Since 2004, we have grown and blossomed into several retreat venues that cater to women's travel. Under CreateHer Productions, Viva La Diva Retreats, several groups have been created to suite the travel niche of women. Our coaching mainstay grew and added retreats for women in both life and business coaching. Our unique venue provides the serenity and solitude of a paradise holistic spa that is both secluded and private, yet close to amenities. We are minutes from a quaint traditional Mexican town offering culture, tradition, and the culinary smorgasbord of old Mexico.

In 2014 Villa Star of the Sea went from our own concept to reality, building our own Mexican location on the Mexican Costalegre, just north of Manzanillo, and just twenty minutes away from the Manzanillo (ZLO) International Airport.

Our location is an acre, on a pristine, very long beach, idylaclly set with sun, ocean, sand and clean air, to awaken the senses.

Our first retreat, VIVA la DIVA was in November 2004 and now we provide several types of retreats throughout the year, exclusively for women who expect and receive pampered treatment. Villa Star of the Sea Retreat Center understands that many women need to get away from it all sometimes. Just as men go on fishing and golfing trips to unwind, women, too need to get away! Women are also often searching for a meaningful and life-enriching experience. As well, many seem to feel more secure with a like-minded group, in our case women, with a focus on women's wellness and relaxation. The business retreats have have guest speakers flown in to do three-hour sessions each over two days in business, real estate and investing and available at extra cost one-on-one business coaching and mentoring by various business coaches and mentors. The same detail goes for our themed retreats, such as Yoga, Reiki, Health retreats, bringing in instructors and gurus.
