Bookholder, who lives in San Diego, maintains deep connections within her home country of Australia, planning wine tastings in Coonawarra, arranging visits to a honey farm on Kangaroo Island, and snagging hard-to-get villas in coveted locations.

Her regional expertise and personal relationships also mean she can handle unexpected logistical challenges without missing a beat. When the bushfires struck during high season, Bookholder quickly shifted a client's nature-focused itinerary in heavily impacted New South Wales to one in New Zealand's South Island. In more urban settings, "I'm thrilled that new five-star hotels are coming to Auckland, as well as a collection of new (brand and boutique) accommodations in Sydney and Melbourne," she says.

Testimonial

"Cassandra Bookholder provided us with the trip of a lifetime. She knows Australia inside and out. We swam with sharks, rang in the New Year from a penthouse over Sydney Harbor, pet koalas, fed kangaroos, and dined at both fun local haunts and Relais & Châteaux destinations. Every detail of our trip was curated for our family from private bike and wine tours to our own villa on the Great Barrier Reef. She provided superlative service at every step of the way. We cannot recommend her highly enough." - Stephanie L.
