Island Steals and Deals, Near and Far

The chilling realization: summer’s barreling toward July 4th (marking its halfway point).  The good news: travel deals are still available at island resorts from Nantucket to Jamaica to the Bahamas.

Think sun-filled days at the beach and evening clambakes on the dock. Book five consecutive nights July 7-19 and save up to 30% at the White Elephant Village, White Elephant, and The Wauwinet. Rates start at $2,500 for five nights. Stay at The Cottages and Lofts at the Boat Basin with “Hot Dates, Cool Rates” starting at $175 per night, or at the Jared Coffin House for $135 per night.

Known for its white sand beaches, warm turquoise waters, historic 12-century Augustian cloister, and restaurants, including Jean-Georges’ Dune, One&Only Ocean Club is offering seven nights for the price of four or 14 nights for the price of 10 including breakfast. One week stays start at $3,750 (a savings of $1,500) and two week stays start at $7,500 (a savings of $3,000).

Experience a different side of Jamaica this summer at Island Outpost resorts.  For travelers who love the sea but are sick of the sand, book the “Free Love Jamaica” package at The Caves and receive five nights for the price of four (rates start at $520/night).  For those in search of cool breezes without the beach, stay at Strawberry Hill, 3,100 feet above sea level, and enjoy 20% off any room category (rates start at $235/night). Visitors who love the sun, sea, and a little history, book a stay in a Lagoon Cottage at GoldenEye and receive $100 resort credit per day (rates start at $560/night).

My Career Reinvention

What if both your personal and professional lives were both turned upside down in just a few Girls
Getaway Guide to Orlando: Leave Your Baggage at Home®. Two months after it was published, Barnes & Noble called her requesting copies of the book for their stores. And the rest is history...

Fast forward a few years and thousands of travel miles later, the requests started coming in for Casey to appear on TV, radio and online to serve as a “been there, done that” travel expert. After her own Career Reinvention, she now helps other people find their true passion and “reinvent” themselves both professionally and personally.

A naturally-gifted speaker, Casey’s sense of humor, honesty and direct approach have received outstanding reviews from her audiences nationwide, whether youth, business professionals or women’s groups. She tailors her message in new and vibrant ways by combining her passion, personal and professional experiences and travels to engage and entertain audiences.
months? What would you do? How would you cope? For Casey Wohl, The Getaway Girl®, the best therapy was to combine her two passions: travel and her girlfriends.
