A seasoned travel expert, Melissa’s specialty lies in planning vacation packages to Honolulu, Hawaii. Known to be one of the top destination spots within the chain of islands, Honolulu is home to world renown places such as Waikiki Beach, Ala Moana Shopping Center, and Pearl Harbor just to name a few. Honolulu also has a vibrant nightlife, rich historical culture, and a plethora of activities and points of interest within close proximity.

As a Hawaii resident for almost her entire life, Melissa loves the beauty of the islands and enjoys sharing them with others. Her hobbies include camping and swimming, both which she loves doing on the north shore of Oahu. She loves having her family immersed in the island lifestyle and spends her free time in the ocean, at the beach, or planning other fun things to do with her family. With local knowledge, Melissa is a great representative for Oahu and is enthusiastic to begin creating the perfect vacation to Hawaii for her clients.

Melissa believes the islands are all very diverse, particularly the one she calls home. Known to be a popular honeymoon and family vacation destination, Honolulu has tons to offer, but is not the only place to visit while on island. Although some are content seeing just the Honolulu part of Oahu, the island also offers beautiful north, west, and east side beaches, romantic cruises along the coastline, vigorous interior island hiking and a colorful culture. Museums, landmarks, and cultural centers are activities Melissa enjoys recommending, especially because it provides visitors a look into Hawaii’s ancient traditions. Not only a specialist in Hawaii vacation packages, Melissa excels in booking cruises to Hawaii as well, offering her clients a variety of services and travel options. She looks forward to sharing her local knowledge and is excited to create a successful vacation to the tropics.

Melissa, I would like to Thank You and your company for a dreamvacation. You listened to everything I wanted to do and to see and the excursions you chose were perfect. We also enjoy cruising the other islands, they were breath-taking. Going back to Oahu was bitter sweet. My brother was born there, and my father died there. It was very healing for me to go back and revisit, reminisce and bring home new cherished memories. I hope to be in contact with you again.God bless and Mahalo. -Ramona

Melissa is incredible! She has booked 18 of us traveling from all across the US and managed to get everyone exactly what they wanted. Trust me, this did not happen on the first try. Melissa would put together quote after quote until every little detail was worked out. To share with you the specialized attention she gave me...I have a daughter in Colorado and one in Texas. She was able to get them on the same flight start in in LA so they can travel together with their small children! They are estactic. We will continue working with Melissa to fine tune a few more details of the trip and I will recommend her to anyone and everyone. Very sincerely, Marie Kastner

Melissa met our Vacation goals

Melissa was great! She worked with me to set up a really nice vacation while being mindful of a general budget. When I wanted to change a hotel, she was there with advice and repricing. Even after we made a decision and though we were set on a total price she was able to find a lower package price.
