Winter weather season, is the perfect time to plan a warm weather getaway. Travel with Nikki puts so much time and attention into your important vacation plans and details making sure you are all set to have a fantastic time away.

What is often overlooked during the vacation planning process is who will take care of your home and furry family members while you are away. We wanted to share with you a fantastic resource with Southwest Michigan- A Single Ray of Hope’s Personal Assistance & Concierge Service. Mary Beth Lyons provides a trusted and insured business with her While you are Away & Pet Sitting Service.  

We all know that pets are more comfortable staying in their own home environment and Mary Beth can help them stay cozy and comfy with home visits. Having a reputable business checking on your home while you are away is crucial.  Winter weather, rain storms and other unexpected weather can cause havoc and destruction while you are away, so you want a trusted person checking on your home for you.  Mary Beth has caught serious water damage, power outages, inoperative refrigerators; teen friends making themselves at home in the outdoor hot tub, and more.  Hiring a trusted business provides that peace of mind knowing that you’ll be kept informed if problems surface. A Single Ray of Hope makes it look as if you are home; they can even do the grocery shopping prior to your return so you don’t have to run out just as soon as you’ve returned from your journey. And best of all, They will even leave the lights on for you!

Travel: The Perfect Gift

Still looking for the perfect gift for the person that has everything? It might be time to think about giving the gift of travel this holiday season.

Why does travel make the perfect gift?

  • Travel provides memories that will last a lifetime rather than toys. clothing or items that might only be around for a few months. Think of it as the gift that keeps on giving. 

  • You don’t have to make extra room for a trip in your home. It doesn’t take over the toy room, sit in the corner for months, or collect dust on a shelf

  • Travel might actually be less expensive than all of the little gifts you would purchase individually (not to mention the wrapping paper and gift bags). 

  • Depending on when you purchase your trip, you could have extra time to save and pay for the vacation as many options don’t require payment in full at the time the reservation is made. 

  • Travel provides the perfect time for family bonding over shared experiences allowing you to connect with family. 

  • Traveling is educational for children. There is so much to be learned during the travel process (maps to navigate airports), as well as once you are in destination (the local language, culture, customs) that kids just would have exposure to otherwise.
