Pic of the Month...
Fall weather has arrived
and Dixie does NOT
look impressed wearing
Real Resorts and
You will never guess where I am
On a cruise ship in the middle of the Mediterranean!!!
Pretty wild, eh? We're on a 12 day Mediterranean cruise
and because I love you so much I am taking some time off
from my vacation to send you the monthly newsletter.
Either that is a sign of dedication or it is very very
sad. You decide (haha).
We are having a great time so far. Our ship left from
Barcelona and we have already been to Italy and Greece,
and we still have Turkey, Egypt and Malta to go. I've
always wanted to see the pyramids (besides the one in Las
Vegas) so I am very excited. Maybe I'll even see a mummy
or two (scary).
only downside of the trip is that things really seem to be
adding up ($$$). I mean on the ship they are charging
nearly $10 for some cocktails. I'm scared to see what our
onboard account is going to be at by the end of the
cruise. I may be emailing
you again soon to ask you to send money (haha).
I guess I am just used to the value of an all-inclusive
Mexico vacation. At
Real Resorts and
El Cid Resorts your clients pretty much know how much
everything is going to cost before they go because
virtually everything is included and there aren't any
A Mexican vacation really is unbeatable value for your
clients when you stop and think about it.
Anyways, I hope you have a great December. I'll be back
in Vancouver on December 9th and I'll be looking forward
to chatting with you soon!

Have you been hearing a lot about Mazatlan lately? Well,
there's a reason for that because Mazatlan is going through
major come back and it is definitely the hot destination for
the 2009/2010 season.
Of course Mazatlan has always been a popular destination for
Canadians since the 1970's, but there have been many changes
and improvements over recent years. In many ways it is like
a new destination!
To read some recent fantastic articles about Mazatlan,
including a wonderful piece in the NEW YORK TIMES, please
It is time for you and your clients to rediscover the
beauty, charm and value of Mazatlan.
it has never been easier to get to Mazatlan with non-stop
flights from major gateways across Canada including
Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg
And don't forget the best place to send your clients
El Cid Resorts
because there is something for
Palm Springs Condo
A Little Piece of Paradise
One of my favourite places is Palm Springs California. Have
you been yet? If not, you have to go sometime!!!
A few months ago we took the plunge and bought a cute little
one-bedroom condo in Palm Springs. And guess what? It's
available for you to sell to your clients and we will even
pay you a 10% commission.
Our condo is located in a complex called the "Ocotillo
Lodge". It used to be a hotel and rumour has it that it used
to be a favourite hangout for the rat-pack in the 1950's.
Cool, eh? It has been converted to condos and of course
it's gone through many renovations over the years. In fact
we just had our unit completely renovated in
October/November after we bought it, and now it's ready to
welcome you and/or your clients.
Our unit is 550sq feet and it is located on the 2nd floor
with a very large shared patio/deck. There is a queen size
bed in the bedroom and the unit is fully furnished and
includes all the amenities your clients will need (dishes,
cutlery, coffee maker, toaster, towels, etc).
|$495US per week |
|$1485US per month|
More information about the condo (including a guided
tour by yours truly) can be found
