Travel style

I’m that person who has a million tabs open when researching and booking travel, squinting in on all the pictures I can find to see if a hotel looks clean, cared for, with un-lumpy mattresses and good lighting. I love the thrill of finding that perfect stay, that perfect transportation plan and that perfect coffee shop, in advance, but also in the moment, of the moment. My specialty for adult travel is that special experience, whether it’s a boutique or luxury property. When I travel with my kids, I work hard to balance a memorable experience for our family with comfort, value and practicality.

When I travel, my priorities are:

- Local food & drinks that I will remember when I return home
- Experiencing the local culture through art and architecture
- Finding tasteful, unique gifts & items
- Balancing family-friendly travel with solo & adult-friendly activities

Carly's reviews

Working with Carly was a dream. She took the time to listen to what I needed, asked the right questions about location, budget, and the vibe I was looking for and sent me such a thoughtfully curated list of options with context behind each select. Once we decided on a place, Not only did she make the booking for me, but she also reached out to the hotel prior to my check in to confirm I was all set and sent me such a sweet note upon check in! Will 100% book with Carly again. Nailed it.

You da best!
