How Casa San Francisco Came to Be. . .
When sisters Terry Leary and Nancy Bergman came to Granada
in 2001 on a vacation, they immediately fell under the spell
of this historic city and within 3 days of visiting Granada they purchased the property that has since been transformed into what is now Casa San Francisco Hotel.
The location was the former residence of a prominent Granada family that had since fallen into a semi-ruin. Nancy oversaw the renovation and construction and design of the project. During this time Terry Leary was overseas working as an aid worker and collecting artifacts for the hotel.
The owners are no strangers to foreign countries as they
all served in the US Peace Corps… Terry in Sierra Leone,
Africa and Nancy in Suriname, South America.
Since the owners are all originally from the San Francisco Bay
Area and the hotel is in the shadow of the Convent of San
Francisco here in Granada, it was easy to know that San
Francisco was the right name for the hotel. You will find that the hotel really feels like a ‘Casa’ as well, home away from home!
Throughout their lives, Terry, Nancy have enjoyed absorbing
different foreign customs and have developed the cultural
sensitivity which has made Casa San Francisco a comfortable
haven for all guests, no matter what their origin.
The Hotel recently Celebrated it’s 8th Anniversary, due in large part to the wonderful guests that come back to visit year after year, like treasured friends!
We look forward to having you as one of them!
