Everything we wanted, and so much more!
I knew we were in for a grand and unique experience by the first email we received from Kelli outlining our travel options. It was elegantly displayed, informative, and full of outstanding options that were exactly what we were looking for. Kelli pays attention! Her commitment to detail and customer service is unparalleled, and so refreshing. Our experience mattered to her at every level. She found the perfect condo in the exact location we were looking for, negotiated a good rate and looked out for us for the duration of our stay. We even received a lovely, welcome gift! She provided us with restaurant recommendations , excursion ideas, beaches to see and tips that made our 10 days on the beautiful island of Maui unforgettable. We are so grateful!

My Mom's Bucketlist Trip
Kelli is a gift that keeps on giving (literally). She was tasked with coordinating a trip for 3 families, 5 countries, for 22 days. As you can imagine there were a lot of moving parts to plan. She thought of everything from the transportation (arranging private transfers, trains, planes, & water taxi) while being thoughtful about how to best use our time (train vs. plane) & keeping budget in mind. Our entire trip was loaded into a beautiful user-friendly app that also held all our documents & tickets. Kelli is very organized, dependable, a joy to work with, and puts her heart into making sure the trip is special. Her level of caring felt as if she were planning it for her own family. To top of an amazing experience, we were greeted with a welcome gift in our room to start the trip and a welcome home gift to end the trip. Thank you, Kelli, for making this trip so special and memorable!
