Make Your Next Trip Extraordinary

Meg Austin was fantastic! We wanted an all-inclusive for 11 members of our extended family—grandparents, parents and 5 grandchildren under 5 (including an infant). Added to the challenge was that we wanted to be able to all fly direct from different parts of the country. Meg picked a perfect resort—Dreams Playa del Mujeres. Through her persistence, she was able to get three rooms next to each other, which made our trip so much better than if we were spread out. She helped us arrange babysitting and got all of our questions answered. This resort had everything that we needed—close to the airport, great pools and beachfront, good food, a fun kids’ club, and wonderful accommodations. What a great recommendation she made for us! I enthusiastically recommend her for family travel.

Our family traveled to St Lucia from December 27, 2023 until January 3,2024. Meg Austin planned another amazing trip for us! The 3-bedroom villa at Sugar Beach was by far the most beautiful spot we have stayed. Meg planned just the right amount of excursions, including a hike to waterfall and mud bath (not to be missed) plus a day on yacht with snorkeling and cruising. Plus we enjoyed snorkeling at night right off Sugar Beach. Highlight for our kids! The resort was beautiful with amazing staff, service and food. We did venture off property for a few dinners and would highly recommend sunset and dinner at Dasheene (at the Ladera resort).

We wouldn’t hesitate to call on Meg Austin for another fabulous vacation!

Traveled to Grenada, WI in November. Meg did a wonderful job of choosing unique lodgings on different sides of the island. This was our first trip to the Caribbean, and she was thoughtful about finding an island that fit our preferences for green, lush environments.

We have recently returned from a monthlong, 4 Caribbean Island adventure organized by Meg Austin. Our trip was in celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary and the trip was extraordinary, But first, some comments about Meg. She noted that she would be coming along with us and, in fact, she did. Meg was in continuous contact with each concierge to ensure every organized activity was executed as she planned. And, the planning exercise was made difficult by the fact that two of the facilities had not yet opened for the season and hence obtaining timely commitments was complicated at best. On more than one occasion we were asked if Meg was a relative or close family friend given the attention she gave to our arrangements. The answer is “no,” she is an outstanding Wendy Trusted Travel Expert who does her level best to provide unique support for her clients. We will certainly be contacting Meg again for another adventure and clearly recommend her very highly.

As for our trip, we visited Barbados, Dominica, St Barts and St. Martin. We stayed at the Sandy Lane (where we had honeymooned and returned for our 25th anniversary), at IHG, at Eden Rock and finally at La Samanna. Thanks to Meg, each property recognized our 50th and treated us as a special guest. We enjoyed private touring on each island, catamaran trips on Barbados (The Cat & The Fiddle) and St. Martin (Freedom) and whale watching on Dominica. We were fortunate to enjoy excellent weather. We found the facilities, staff, food & drink at each resort to be excellent. Meg managed to blend free time with activities in a manner that allowed us to keep busy but yet relaxed. We met many wonderful staffers, too numerous to mention, and they all worked hard to ensure we had a great time.

Meg also arranged for Fast Track at each airport. While pricey, this support ensured we moved through each airport in record time and with minimal traditional airport processes. Our only mistake was to rent cars on St. Barts and St. Martin. We really didn’t use them very much as the private touring and occasional taxi did the trick. Can’t forget Wendy’s WOW Moment rum tasting on St. Martin at the La Samanna La Cave. Don’t quite understand how Wendy selects these WOW events but this was perfect. A very special treat…thank you Wendy.
