    Hi Catherine, sorry I won't be able to make it afterall. Have a great time!

    Success! Anne Simmering and I will be travelling to Eleuthra, one of the Bahamian out islands, in early April, and staying in a two-bed, two-bath beachfront cottage that we have rented. Although we have just recently met, we feel that this setup should work for us. The price is very reasonable, the beach is right there, and we don't have to eat restaurant food all the time. Plus, Eleuthra is apparently very quiet and non-touristy. If this kind of holiday appeals to you, and you can connect with someone else in this group, I have come across another property on the same beach that would suit two or three and looks very nice. Check it out at: http://www.flipkey.com/eleuthera-vacation-rentals/p362685/
    I would be happy to tell you more about arranging this kind of trip, and how to get to Eleuthra. Cheers, Catherine

    I was at the El Dorado Royale in January. It is a beautiful resort and the restaurants and very very good. Recommended for sure to anyone interested.

    Looking forward t meeting you as well, Lisa.

  • Lisa

    Catherine, I'm looking forward to the next meeting; wish I could have attended the previous Meetup (but travel intervened!)

    March 10, 2013

  • Catherine M.

    Lisa, I think the next general meeting of the group will be on the topic of travel tips for single female travellers. Sounds like you may have some tips for us, so hope you will be able to make that meeting, which does not have a date yet. Please stay tuned.

    March 10, 2013

  • Lisa

    I had hoped to join everyone, but I may be moving so I best stay put.
    If you need any assistance in planning, i.e. will the group consider roommates; preferred and alternate destinations; or price point I certainly can help. I just returned last Sunday from a Caribbean cruise I had arranged for another Meetup group. All 23 of us had a great time. I’ll be sure to mention this group to the ladies of our cruise, they love to travel.

    Is it an "all incl" that is being thought of? Although the dates proposed do not suit me, I would be interested a little later. How do you use your points if it is a vacation pkg? Just curious.

    March 8, 2013

    • Catherine M.

      Heather, for later dates you might check out the Tripcentral website I gave below. Www.tripcentral.ca. I think that you can use Aeroplane points for Aircanda all inclusive vacation packages. With the clubMed package, you can buy the land only portion, which includes meals etc. then get you air with points. Hope that helps.

      Thanks Catherine, I did answer my own questions after I posted. Are others looking at possible later dates, i.e. April 8th onward?

    I cannot got however I worked at that Club Med for 3 months last winter as one of their nurses. If you go, please do the free snorkelling trips offered twice and day. Amazing underwater world and you may see dolphins, turtles and other beautiful creatures.

      Turks and Caicos.

      March 8, 2013

    • Catherine M.

      Do you think that is a good property Tammy? Does it have a good, long beach, safe for swimming? Appreciate your thoughts.

      March 9, 2013

  • Catherine M.

    Sharon has made the point that the Club Med option may be more expensive than some would like to undertake. Here is an interesting site that might help identify some les expensive options:

    Catherine, this does look like fun. If I can get a dog sitter, I would be keen to go. I would like to travel on points as well.

    Hello Sole Sisters The most promising possibility I've come across so far is a special offer from Club Med in the Turks and Caicos. If you leave March 31, the single supplement is waived, so you have your own room. The land only package price is $1388.05. With air, out of Montreal, it's about $2100. Probably about the same out of Ottawa. Air Canada has a flight out of Ottawa connecting to a direct flight out of Montreal. In fact, you could do a bit better booking the air yourself out of Ottawa through Air Canada Vacations, for $530.41, for a total of $1918.46. If you plan to use airline points, as I would, you have to book more than two weeks in advance. Does this appeal to any of you? Please let me know your thoughts . . . Catherine The Club Med in the Turks and Caicos is an adults only property. Further info: http://www.clubmed.ca/cm/all-inclusive-singles-vacations_p-61-l-US-pa-SINGLE-FRIENDS-VACATION-DEAL-61US-ac-od.html Let me know if this might work for you.

    I would have loved to get away but my nursing schedule is too crazy for the next month or so. Enjoy sisters!

    March 7, 2013

  • Catherine M.

    RSVP only if you might be interested in exploring this possibility. Let me know what dates might work for you.
