North Brunswick, New Jersey Travel Agent

Star Enterprises Travel DBA My Vacation Lady, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Vacation & Honeymoon Specialist in New Jersey

Let me be your vacation lady!

Since 1994 I have been helping people, just like you, plan and enjoy their dream vacations. But don't worry, you won’t find ‘deal of the day’, cookie cutter vacations with my company, My Vacation Lady.

I specialize in customizing your trip and creating unique experiences that provide a lifetime of memories to cherish.

I started My Vacation Lady in 2002 and I’ve since built it into the top rated honeymoon agency in New Jersey. In fact, My Vacation Lady has received this recognition from the couples on Wedding Wire for 5 years in a row. In addition, The Knot has voted My Vacation Lady as one of the top agencies in New Jersey for the past 3 years.

I love serving my honeymoon customers and helping clients plan romantic vacations, but also specialize in family and group vacations, especially to tropical destinations. I have travelled extensively throughout Hawaii, the Caribbean, Mexico and the South Pacific.

I return to these locations again and again in order to keep up to date on the properties, activities and experiences that I recommend to my clients. I love to book unique adventures that are tailored to your own desires and passions. Most importantly, I want your trip to be memorable.

The best way I can serve you well is to listen to your wants and needs during our vacation planning consultation. I won’t try to sell you a resort or destination that I like or one that is on sale, but rather will match the resorts or destination to your dreams and budget.  

I won't just book your trip but rather, we'll help plan your vacation or honeymoon experience!

There are plenty of deals to be found, but if I sell you a great deal on a mediocre vacation, I won’t feel that I have done my best for you! We will work together to create a trip that will have you talking about it for years to come.

So, if you are in need of a low stress vacation planning experience, let My Vacation Lady help you create the trip of your dreams!

Perfect 2nd Honeymoon

Reviewed By Erika L - Spotswood, NJ | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
We were very happy to use My Vacation Lady services again. 15 years ago we were happy that we had Mindy plan our perfect honeymoon so we asked for her help again to plan our 2nd honeymoon / anniversary trip. She spent the time to research what would make this trip special for us and she definitely found it for us. We had a phenomenal trip at the Hideaway at the Royalton in Mexico. Everything we asked for was part of the trip and we were treated so well. We really couldn't ask for a better experience and we know it was due to her expert planning. We even had a last minute concern about transfer at the airport and both Mindy and the assistant were amazingly quick to respond and take care of concern. Our experience was great and we hope to plan another trip with Mindy.

Perfect Honeymoon

Reviewed By Sabrina Gigliello - NJ | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Let me just start by saying ...BRAVO Mindy! She understood what exactly we were looking for.
Mindy was so accommodating and responded to my emails so quickly. We didn't know a thing about Hawaii and she put us at ease with her vast knowledge of the islands. Planning was such a breeze, Mindy gave us a ton of information and options. We loved how she gave us her opinion of the hotel options and why we would like or not like the hotel for us. Her service is exceptional and even after our plans were set she was always available for questions or help with adding more activities in. We were simply blown away with how smooth our trip went. It was so stress free and Mindy always had a little gift and personalized note waiting for us upon arrival at each hotel; this is the kind of personalized service we were looking for! We had the bests seats where ever we went whether it be at restaurants or the Luau. We will be using Mindy going forward with any vacation we take!

Our Honeymoon

Reviewed By Marissa - Clark, NJ | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Even though we had already chosen Hawaii for our honeymoon, we decided to use a travel agent and I'm so glad I found Mindy! In our initial consultation we talked about our likes/dislikes, past vacations, and our honeymoon wishlist. She really took the time to get to know us and understand what we were looking for. Mindy took care of ALL the booking. She was able to get us the best deals at the resorts and she provided us with endless amounts of information on the islands. Whenever I had a question about something she responded within minutes! The week before our trip, Mindy informed us the dinner cruise we booked was cancelled but she had already taken care of re-booking us for another cruise. Looking back on our honeymoon, we had the trip of a lifetime!!! Thanks to Mindy, we had the best rooms in the resorts, prime seating at the luau, and the most exceptional service.

Reviewed By Maura&Ed - Boston, MA | Traveled to Panama ~ Central America
My Vacation Lady is the best! We just returned from a trip to Panama and can't stop talking about it! Mindy has planned five vacations for us over a ten year period. Each trip has wildly exceeded our expectations, from the incredible properties she books for us to the fun excursions she plans for us. Mindy is professional and easy to deal with. Her attention to detail is so valuable, as she often thinks of things that we would otherwise forget.

Perfect trip for us!

We cannot say enough positive things about our experience planning our Honeymoon with Mindy! We wanted to it to be a once in a lifetime trip that we would look back on with no regrets. Mindy did a great job from the start! We went in with a budget and a vague idea of what we wanted our honeymoon to be like. She spent a lot of time asking us questions and getting to know our preferences. It was clear from the beginning that she wanted to make sure that she was planning the perfect vacation for us. Throughout the whole planning process, she would give us options and tell us pros and cons of each. It was very comforting to know that she knew the ins and outs of all of the excursions and resorts that she was booking for us. It was the most memorable and fun filled vacation we could have ever dreamed of and we would book her again in a heartbeat! Thank you Mindy for the memories that will last a lifetime!

Planning our honeymoon with My Vacation Lady was a great decision! The idea of going to Thailand and piecing together the flights, hotels and tours was so daunting to think about, as we were planning our wedding at the same time.

Best Honeymoon Ever

Mindy made planning our honeymoon fun, exciting and worry free. She got to know my husband and I and our personal likes and dislikes for vacations. She then catered to our needs and desires and put together a honeymoon that was beyond our wildest expectations. Mindy is extremely professional and timely. I was shocked at how quickly she would respond and answer all of our questions. She sent us all of our paperwork so nicely and really took any stress of planning a honeymoon away, which is great during wedding planning as well!

Dream Honeymoon in Costa Rica

Reviewed By Liz - Brooklyn, NY | Traveled to
As soon as we started thinking about our honeymoon, we knew we wanted to use a travel agent so that the trip could be one less thing we needed to plan! Well, Mindy far exceeded the help I imagined she'd provide. When we spent over two hours consulting on the phone with Mindy, discussing our dream honeymoon, our likes and dislikes, and our budget, I knew Mindy would design an amazing trip for us. After our consultation, Mindy helped us narrow down our location to Costa Rica, which we had never even considered when thinking about our honeymoon. When Mindy sent us detailed Costa Rica itineraries to choose from, they were all so great it was almost impossible to pick! We never imagined we would be able to stay at the luxurious resorts she selected and experience the amazing excursions while still staying within our budget. Throughout the entire process Mindy was professional, thorough, and extremely responsive. I literally emailed her a million random questions (I wanted our honeymoon to be perfect!) and she always answered me within minutes. Even while on our honeymoon when we had a small issue during check-in, Mindy responded within minutes to help straighten things out. Our honeymoon in Costa Rica was AMAZING, the best time of our lives (second to the wedding day!) Mindy designed a split stay for us - 7 nights at a brand all-inclusive new resort on the beach in Guanacaste, and then 3 nights at one of the top resorts in the world in Arenal. The only negative aspect to our honeymoon was leaving! If you're looking for a stress-free, budget friendly, honeymoon planning process individual tailored to meet your desires and needs, Mindy is definitely the agent for you.

Being first time parents that feel comfortable going on a mommy & daddy get-a-way now, we knew that My Vacation Lady would point us in the right direction for an all inclusive vacation that is not too-too far away from home!

Mindy got back to us right away and set up an awesome itinerary for Riviera Maya, Mexico!

My Vacation Lady came highly recommended from my sister, who has used her services in the past. I was NOT disappointed.

The BEST at what she does!

Reviewed By A.J. - Brooklyn, NY | Traveled to
I've been dealing with Mindy for years now and while you may think it's cheaper or easier booking a vacation or honeymoon yourself, trust me, it's not. This time around, my fiance and I used her services for our most important trip, our honeymoon. She consulted with us about what we wanted, what we didn't want, and what our budget was. She put together ideas and proposals and made booking a breeze. With everything else going on trying to plan a wedding, a couple can be very busy. Mindy got answers for us and did all the leg work which would have ultimately been left on us. Traveling to a new destination can be scary, but with Mindy's knowledge and connections, we were confident in her recommendations and advice. She was quick with answers to any questions and with our budget ultimately in mind, was able to find ways to include mostly everything we wanted and cut some of the cost down. I highly recommend her for a any type of trip you may be thinking of booking. From small to large, Mindy will follow through!

Mindy helped us plan our honeymoon to Playa Mujeres and it was everything we hoped for! We were impressed from the very start with how detailed she was during the phone consultation. I had not expected it to be so in-depth, but it was clear she knows her stuff and was determined to find the ideal location based on our needs. She gave us a handful of options and once we chose, she took care of our flights, hotel reservation, and private airport transfers. I felt 100% comfortable that we were going someplace safe, with high quality accommodations, and where we could simply unwind from wedding planning. She listened to our expectations and then exceeded them. I will never forget this trip and we will absolutely use Mindy in the future!

Mindy makes traveling easy! No stress at all!

Reviewed By Donna - Delaware | Traveled to
We cant say enough good things about Mindy. I could never do what she does. Our cruise was fantastic and everything went smoothly - no problems at all. In fact, even though we had arrived early in Barcelona, our room was ready so we could sleep a little and help with jet lag. I know Mindy had a hand in this - because what hotel would have your rooms ready at 8am. We will definitely be using Mindys services for all our future vacation needs!

Amazing honeymoon planned by Mindy!

Reviewed By Sara - New York, NY | Traveled to
My husband and I knew that we wanted to use a travel agent when it came to planning our honeymoon. We were deciding between locations we weren't familiar with and wanted someone with experience and knowledge of the areas, hotels, etc. to help. We did some research on our end, met with a bad travel agent until we were finally introduced to Mindy, who was referred to us by our Rabbi (she had helped plan his daughter's honeymoon and she came highly recommended). From our very first interaction with Mindy, she was so professional, friendly, warm, and gave you the impression she would get things done. Very early on in the planning process she had an extensive conversation with us, to get to know us. She wasn't interested in just finding out where we wanted to go and how much we wanted to spend, she got to know the type of people we are, what we like to do, are we morning or night people; what interests us, did we want adventure or leisure? She listened to every bit of information we provided and planned us the most amazing honeymoon. We decided to go to Greece and that required her to book multiple flights, hotels, ferries, activities, car services, etc. There were ample opportunities for there to be a mix up with flights, schedules, transfers, missed pickups, etc., but NOT once was there an issue. She provided us with an extensive itinerary, detailing all of the information we needed to know regarding hotels, transportation, activities and EVERYTHING went off without a hitch, it was truly impressive. Not having to deal with any travel issues, allowed us to be even more carefree and enjoy ourselves. The hotels we stayed in were incredible, the service was outstanding and the activities booked for us only added to our enjoyment. She was doing her due diligence, updating us when needed and made sure we would be okay. Mindy did such an incredible job with our honeymoon we will absolutely be using her services again and have already recommended her to friends and family.

The Very Best!

Reviewed By Jess and Lou - New Jersey | Traveled to
We met Mindy in 2011 when friends of ours recommended her as an agent to plan our honeymoon. Little did we know that we would be calling Mindy time and again to plan many trips for us! We have come to rely on her expertise, trust her judgement, and wouldn't hesitate to tell any friend of ours to call her. In 2011, Mindy planned an absolutely perfect Hawaiian honeymoon for us. The resorts she recommended were amazing, the tour guides and groups she booked for us were top notch, and she even went as far as to plan our dinner reservations for us- and each one just happened to coincide with sunset. The memories from that trip are completely priceless from the Napali Coast boat tour she suggested to the Road to Hana drive (which Mindy sent us an audio guide for to help us along!). Since then, Mindy has planned us a relaxing trip to Saint Martin, and we have just recently been working with her again to plan our 2015 summer trip to Ireland and Italy. Her knowledge of overseas travel, trains, B&Bs, hotels, and even tours made planning such a large trip seem easy! Many people can plan a trip- but few can plan one like Mindy and make it a fun experience on top of that! I know that Mindy will play a part in many of our future trips, and for anyone looking for the very best, she should be part of yours as well!

Reviewed By Carlos G. - West New York, NJ | Traveled to
We sought out Mindy after reading all the amazing reviews about her honeymoon booking services. We used her to book our first honeymoon to Bora Bora. She was amazing to work with and made the whole experience go really smoothly. When our honeymoon did not go as planned and my wife was injured during the trip, that's when we really learned the value of having Mindy at our disposal. She was nothing short of amazing, helping us coordinate travel arrangements back from Bora Bora, checking in on us along the trip back, and making sure we were okay all the way home. After the dust settled, she was very helpful in getting the insurance claim going. The experience could have been a real disaster if we didn't have Mindy advising us along the way. We've since used her to book our make-up honeymoon to Turks & Caicos, which was incredible. We'll continue to use Mindy for our vacation planning in the future, and would recommend her to anyone.

Thank you Mindy for planning our amazing honeymoon to Hawaii. This was our fist time using a travel agent and it certainly wont be the last! As I'm sure many of you brides know, you think you can book your dream honeymoon while planning a wedding... then reality of wedding planning sinks in. I reached out to Mindy and our dream honeymoon to Maui & Kauai was booked with a detailed itinerary within 3 days. She took the time to get to know us and really dug deep to make sure she had a clear understanding of what our expectations were (activities, excursions, which island is best for us...). Less than 24 hours after speaking with her on the phone, she emailed over 2 extremely detailed itineraries to choose from - and simply put, she nailed it.

She has a great understanding of all the resorts and amenities offered and most of the hotel's concierge/representatives know her by name which really helps and makes you feel comfortable while traveling thousands of miles away from home. Mindy does a great job listening to what is most important to you and makes great recommendations based on your vacation expectations. Every single excursion she recommended was fantastic and exactly how she describes it in her own written review. She also provided us with restaurant recommendations with personalized reviews. Our 3 vacation experiences were so perfect because of Mindy's knowledge and expertise as a travel agent. We plan on using her services whenever and wherever our travels take us - hopefully back to the Big Island and Maui in 2016! Thank you! Paul & Megan

Mindy knows her stuff! She is always available to answer your questions. I have booked numerous cruises with Mindy and I have never been disappointed. I recommended Mindy to my nephew when he was planning his honeymoon and he was also very pleased.

Dream Honeymoon

Reviewed By Robin - NJ | Traveled to
Mindy was so helpful and patient in helping us plan our dream honeymoon! With all of the details of the wedding we were focusing on, we really appreciated how much time and stress that Mindy took off of our plates in researching the various destinations, accommodations and excursions for our honeymoon. We initially had so many different ideas of where we should go on our honeymoon, but with Mindy's dedicated time spent getting to know what we liked and what our must-have were for a perfect honeymoon, we were finally able to decide on a destination. Mindy even provided sample itineraries of the various destinations we were considering, which really made the decision making process so easy! We wound up deciding on French Polynesia (Tahiti, Moorea & Bora Bora), which was the ultimate dream honeymoon. Mindy was always so responsive to our many questions throughout the planning process and really kept our budget in consideration while planning our various options. On our honeymoon, there was not a worry to be had or an excursion not planned, as Mindy had everything arranged and organized for us. How stress-free! I can't imagine travel any other way now, so stress-free! Thank you so much Mindy for all of your help - you were such a pleasure to work with and everything was an absolute dream!

Finally so excited!

Reviewed By Ali - New York, NY | Traveled to
We cannot thank Mindy enough for all of her hard work. She has made this process so simple and we are so excited! I wish we found you sooner as when we first reached out to you I think we were both (or at least I was) feeling very discouraged about planning the Honeymoon. Because of you, we get to cross something off our list! Many thanks!

Perfect Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Casey - Syracuse, NY | Traveled to
My husband found Mindy @myvacationlady by chance. We had started planning our wedding from afar, and with all the time that was taking, we thought we could use a little help with our honeymoon. Mindy sent us a questionnaire to detail a little further what our wants and needs were for our perfect honeymoon. She also went over a slideshow presentation by phone. It took her less than a week to get back to us with multiple good options in the Caribbean. She helped us to narrow down with our 'must haves' list. Once we decided on our destination (Riviera Maya - Viceroy), she was our liaison with the hotel and our transportation on the island. She booked our flights and arranged for private transportation to and from the airport in Mexico, which was clean, prompt, friendly and air conditioned! She booked all of our spa treatments, special dinners, etc. She was able to help us set up golf at an outside resort for my husband, and credit card authorizations (MIL was paying) so that we didn't have to worry about a thing while we were there! She also offered to help arrange any excursions that we were interested in. Mindy was an absolute pleasure to work with, and with as much planning as I did for my own wedding, it was great to know that she had EVERYTHING handled for the honeymoon. Thank you Mindy for helping us have the BEST Honeymoon EVER!

Honeymoon in Great Exuma

Reviewed By Naya - Jersey City | Traveled to
Mindy selected a wonderful location for us. Initially, because I am so busy I didn't see the value in the interview, but it quickly proved worthy. It helped Mindy to provide us with honeymoon options that met our desires within price ranges that we could afford. Well done, Mindy.

An Unforgettable Honeymoon!

Reviewed By LSpirio - Brooklyn, NY | Traveled to
Mindy was so helpful and attentive throughout the entire honeymoon planning process. I loved how she spent an hour on the phone with us, getting to know our interests and our budget. She eventually helped us to decide on Hawaii (Oahu, Maui, and Kauai), which was so fun, beautiful, and relaxing. Mindy set up all of our excursions for us so that we didn't have to worry about planning anything ourselves. She provided us with a detailed itinerary so that we never had any questions about where we needed to be, when we needed to be there, and what items we could and could not have with us for each excursion. We highly recommend Mindy to help you plan a romantic honeymoon that you won't forget! Thank you Mindy!

Has planned our honeymoon and two other trips!

Reviewed By Megan - River Edge, NJ | Traveled to
We first used Mindy for our honeymoon trip to Hawaii. We found Mindy to be the most responsive of our "wedding vendors". Our honeymoon was truly perfect and Mindy planned every bit of it from the islands we visited to the hotels we stayed at and the excursions that we went on. Every excursion was fun, on time and professionally run. The 24-hour phone concierge service also allowed us to make some last minute upgrades without a hassle. With all the stress of planning wedding details, it was great to leave the honeymoon to her. Our honeymoon is the most memorable part of the wedding festivities and it was no doubt due to Mindy's expertise and planning for us. Following our honeymoon, we used Mindy to book two anniversary trips - Costa Rica for our first anniversary and London and Ireland for our second. Again, these trips went without a hitch and were memorable and great vacations. We again used Mindy to book excursions and activities and again the vendors supplying these activities were top notch. The hotels were always perfect choices and we were always pleased with the cleanliness, location and service at each place that we have stayed at that was booked through Mindy. We always remark how one of our most favorite hotels that we have stayed at was in Costa Rica and how had we been booking it ourselves we would have overlooked this family-run gem. Mindy suggested it and we continue to look back fondly on the location, the rooms, the views of the Arenal volcano, the hot springs and the extremely welcoming and warm staff at this particular hotel. Mindy takes the hassle out of vacation planning and eliminates the need to spend countless nights reading online reviews of hotels and activities. When planning a big trip, we would certainly use Mindy again and we have recommended her to several friends who have gone on to book their honeymoons (and then subsequent trips) with her and also share my strong feelings that Mindy is GREAT to work with.
