Beach Bum Vacation
Melissa
Certified Travel Concierge
Honeymoon, Destination Wedding & Vacation Specialist

I am very fortunate to have been able to travel all over the world! Traveling is something I have such an incredible passion for, and I love to be able to share my excitement, love and knowledge of other countries. My travels have taken me to over 40 countries; throughout the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia, Morocco, Central America, Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean and the United States. Not only do I love experiencing new places and things, but I also love to meet new people and experience other cultures. There is such an amazing world out there for us all to discover!

One of the first things people always ask me: "So, what's your favorite place?" That question is so difficult for me to answer, because I hold a very special place in my heart for almost everywhere I have been but each for different reasons. It all depends on what YOU are looking for in YOUR next getaway, whether it be a destination wedding, a romantic honeymoon or anniversary trip, a fun party vacation, adventure travel, corporate incentive trip or just an overall much-needed getaway.

That's why it's so important to seek the services of Beach Bum Vacation™. Because each destination and hotel/resort has its own "vibe," and while it may look and sound good online, once you get there, it may not be all you had imagined. Myself and the other Travel Concierges at Beach Bum Vacation™ visit countless resorts each year, so that we may help you make a well-informed decision by matching you with a place that best fits what you are looking for. We do not charge any fees for our services, so why not use our help to make sure you choose the best destination and resort for YOU!

I have even experienced celebrating a destination wedding in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, and it was an absolutely AMAZING experience! I know first-hand how confusing and discouraging it can be to plan a wedding long distance, and I am here to help support you all the way. I had a wonderful group of 39 people join us, so I am aware of the challenges in handling everyone's questions and reservations about leaving the country for a wedding. I can help eliminate the added stress and you can enjoy the fun things in planning a wedding. I am full of ideas and photos, so feel free to use my knowledge to help create the wedding of your dreams!

We can provide you with unmatched personalized customer service that I know internet websites and most travel agencies cannot offer. I provide support from our initial contact and will continue until the day you return home. With such a special trip, it's nice to know that someone is on your side if anything happens and I will be there to help because I truly care. Honeymoons, destination weddings and vacation getaways are special times to spend with the people that mean the most to you, and I truly want everything to be as perfect as you do!

Why get a travel agent?

We never used travel agents in our day-to-day vacation travels. After debating, we decided to use Beach Bum Vacation® (based on Knottie reviews) and got Melissa. Super happy about this! Melissa compiled guest list information for me, sent me updates on my guests' travel schedules, and responded to emails immediately. The compiled guest list may not seem like a big deal, but when you're on location and trying to remember when who's coming in when, it's awesome to have. Also, on the day we left, we realized we had forgotten our transfer vouchers, hotel food and beverage voucher, and other needed paperwork. I called and emailed Melissa and got a response within 5 minutes (and I even woke her up!). She called the shuttle/transport provider and the hotel and faxed each of them all the necessary paperwork. That's why you get a travel agent. Love her.
