Luxury South Pacific Destination Specialist

For the last 30 years, I have specialized in designing vacations to the South Pacific. Doing so has allowed me to experience a wide range of interesting experiences. For example, I've gone white water rafting, rock climbing & abseiling, as well as taken part in wine tasting and culinary activities. I've also been on safari and visited wildlife preserves. I've been to Australia and New Zealand multiple times. I have visited stunning beaches of Fiji and the Cook Islands, I have also visited Mexico, Europe, South Africa, and the Caribbean. My travels have taken me to some of the most luxurious hotels, B&Bs and luxury lodges in the world, and I've seen firsthand how a once-in-al-lifetime experience can transform a vacation. I'm a firm believer that travel customers should experience memorable and unique vacations. As your luxury travel agent and advisor, I promise to assist you in making the best selections for your holiday. Let’s make your travel dreams a reality. Give me a call today.

The Best Travel Agent EVER!
Dawn is one of the most knowledgable, personable, seasoned and detail oriented travel agent I've had the pleasure to work with. She has handled both my national and international travel for years, both personally and professionally. I've become so spoiled by her knowledge and experience, I find it very hard to book anything without her help! She is fantastic, dependable, and so nice to work with. Five stars! Won't find anyone better.

An extraordinary travel planner
I am a travel agent partner who has worked with Dawn many times. Each itinerary was unique and intricate. Dawn is a one in a million travel partner. She is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and patient. She puts her all into travel planning. She is an excellent listener, enabling the agent and the clients to be completely confident in putting their trip in Dawn's capable hands. She leaves no stone unturned. My most challenging and discriminating clients were always wowed by her talent in planning travel. And Dawn was always willing to spend time conferencing with me and clients in order to really understand their wishes. Call Dawn for sure!
