Anegada Villa Special

Dear previous guest at Lavenda Breeze, Anegada, BVI,

This has proved to be an odd year for bookings. Normally every week from January through December is accounted for. But somehow this summer got overlooked by our previous guests or newcomers. Is it "the economy"? Perhaps folks are vacationing closer to home.

To encourage you to give a return visit some thought, we are offering a very special "special" to you or to anyone you recommend who rents Lavenda Breeze between May 10th and August 12th, 2010. We are giving a 30% rate reduction during that time -- from $500 to $350 per night.

Anegada in these Spring and Summer months is particularly pleasant. The breezes still blow but not as strongly as in the winter. The water is warm. The island is quiet.

So perhaps this is a chance to take or make a quick "getaway" to Anegada for some great swimming, snorkeling, fishing, relaxing and the incomparable comforts of Lavenda Breeze.

Feel free to forward our link -- www.lavendabreeze.com -- to your friends and invite them to take advantage of this great offer, too.

CAPE AIR INCREASES CARIBBEAN FLIGHT SCHEDULE

More flights into the U.S. and British Virgin Islands then any Other Airline

November 25, 2008 Hyannis, MA - "This winter season no one gets you to your vacation destination in the Virgin Islands faster and more conveniently then Cape Air," says airline founder and CEO Dan Wolf. "We are meeting the unprecedented demand for service by sending additional planes to the Caribbean giving us a total of 25 aircraft available to meet the hourly schedule of flights between San Juan and not only the US and British Virgin Islands but also Vieques, Cape Air's newest island destination."

For over a decade Cape Air, the largest independent regional airline in the United States, has been providing service between San Juan and the Virgin Islands. Wolf says this year the advance bookings have dramatically increased in response to a major reduction in service from the major carriers who used to fly to the Islands. "We expect to fly about 1,000 passengers daily between the islands this upcoming season, up about 70% from last year." says Wolf. "In addition to the hourly service, passengers can also enjoy the seamless convenience of our ticket and baggage agreements with most major airlines including our code share partner Continental Airlines. Check your bags at your departure and find them waiting for you at your island destination."

You can book Cape Air flights directly from Caribbean-On-Line starting on our Caribbean Airlines page, at www.flycapeair.com, or by calling Cape Air's reservations department at 800 352-0714.
