Tahiti Specialist

I just recently returned from a wonderful trip to many islands throughout Tahiti! I have seen pictures and thought I understood these islands pretty well but I now know there are small details that make each island and resort special and unique. Truly amazing! I have fallen in love with these awe-inspiring little islands, atolls and motus, I knew I was going to be hooked within a short time!


So many little islands and so many amazing resorts, where to go next! Tahiti is a neat little place if you really want to be up close and personal with the Tahitian people. Tahiti is filled with history, island tours, waterfalls and food trucks where you can eat with the locals, so yummy and inexpensive! The sight of Bora Bora from the plane upon arrival is a lifetime memory that you won’t forget! You truly can’t believe what your eyes are seeing and that you are really there.


I was lucky enough to not only get to stay at the famous St. Regis in Bora Bora but also got to visit 3 other resorts on this awe-inspiring island, each one special and beautiful in their own way. I had the most amazing experience on a tour with Romantic Tours where I was able to touch and be among rays and sharks. What made this so special is that are free to come or leave as they please! I haven't found the right words that do it justice, you have to go to believe.


Need to feel disconnected from the world? Then try a hidden gem like Le Tahaa or Vahine Island. These jewels are remote and perfect for a intriguing little journey of relaxation! Le Tahaa sits on its own Motu, it’s almost like Gilligan’s Island meets a 5 star resort! No glitz and glamour here just an amazing resort built with natural elements to make you feel surrounded by nature at all times. The waters are so shallow here in the lagoon that sea life is abundant and healthy! Step foot on the heart shape island of Moorea and the mountain vista will grab you instantly. Right away I was awe struck by 3 or 4 waterfalls cascading down the mountain as we drove along the rode! I saw passing small villages and people taking nice bike rides along the coast! This is the island for adventures!


I had always wanted to visit the Tahitian islands and it has captured my heart! I sent a message back home to the states that said “Pack your bags, bring the doggies, send money... I may not come home! I had an “Ah Ha” moment and will never forget that moment in time; are you searching for yours it just might be waiting for you in Tahiti! As the Tahitians would say “Ia Orana”; which means hello and have a good day!

Here's an agent that works for you!
Teresa is the sweetest person to work with. She listens to what you want and expect on a vacation and delivers. Never pushy.
She is there from the beginning, during, and after your vacation to help you with any needs you may have.
She makes sure to help you with your budget not only whatever is available.
I would and have recommended her to friends who agree with everything I've said.
If you want someone who works for you, not just for the company, this is the woman for you.

25th Anniversary Trip
Celebrating our 25th anniversary we wanted to do something special. We knew we wanted to go to French Polynesia however had no idea on which islands, which resorts. Teresa helped to guide us on an awesome experience from her personal knowledge of the area and was able to even keep it within our budget as well. Throughout the trip she created memories at each location that really stood out and made it feel extra special. Each stop on our trip was magical with added touches like rose petals on our bed, fine chocolates and champagne and a personal note from her at each resort she had delivered. During the trip we emailed her a couple questions, each time she was very responsive. She even checked to see how it was going for us in case we needed anything. Post trip she followed up to see how it went to ensure our experience was everything we hope for. With her help it certainly was! We would absolutely recommend Teresa to anyone based on the total experience she delivered for us on t

My "Go To" for Every Trip from Now On!
Found Teresa online while looking for an agent who has specialized in Tahiti and so happy I did. Have never gone through a travel agent before (always done it all on my own) and now I am pretty sure I never want to book a trip without her. Teresa has planned our dream trip for our honeymoon & first trip as hubby and wifey. All the little additions and surprises were so well thought out and exactly what we were looking for. She really took the time to understand the things we like to do and what is important to us while traveling. I will be highly recommending her to all my friends and family. Thanks Teresa!!!

I can't believe Teresa exists!
Teresa went up and beyond to help us plan our dream vacation. She listened and followed through with everything that we asked and more. She is timely and patient. I could not ask more from her. My daughter and husband gave us the referral as they were so very impressed as well. THANK YOU!!
