Small Treasures Tip Sheet: Keeping Clients in Mind

NASSAU -- The Small Treasures properties are different from one another, and each has distinctive characteristics and qualities, offering very different travel experiences.

Before booking, carefully qualify your clients to determine what they are expecting from their stay.

Here are a few issues to keep in mind:

* Mobility. Do your clients have concerns about getting up and down stairs, or around on narrow garden paths?

If so, check the property you are considering to be sure access will be easy.

* Transportation. In many cases, small hotels are off the main tourist strips and off the beaches, so many clients will likely prefer to rent a car for at least part of their stay.

As for taxis, here's a driver I liked: Ed Flowers, who handles sightseeing, dinner and casino tours, drives a well-used Cadillac and is completely reliable. Call (809) 324-1600.

* Family matters. Several of the Small Treasures offer accommodations with kitchenettes, handy for families who want to keep an eye on food costs. Request these in advance.
