Jamie Root

Founder & Travel Advisor

At Beach Bum Getaways, I match my clients to the “barefoot luxe” destinations and properties I know they will love. After more than 16 years in the travel industry, I’ve developed a “short list” of places and experiences—particularly in Mexico, the Caribbean, and Hawaii—that I trust to meet my travelers’ expectations. Instead of relying on online reviews from strangers, you can rely on my first-hand expertise and industry connections to deliver a memory-making vacation (one where you don’t have to lift a finger yourself!).


As your travel advisor, I do so much more than simply book a plane ticket and hotel room for you. It’s about taking care of the full experience—from reserving your private excursions to arranging any special accommodations to meet your needs. I’m especially excited to work with clients who are celebrating something special through travel, like a honeymoon, destination wedding, anniversary, birthday, or milestone achievement. Through my supplier relationships, I can make just about anything you can dream up happen—and there is no better way to celebrate life’s big and small moments than through travel! 

When a getaway involves so many moving parts (especially true in today’s travel climate), it pays to have a pro coordinating it all for you. I’m honest with my clients about what’s possible for them, ensuring they’re spending their vacation investment wisely, and I always have their back from when we first start planning to long after they return home. I’d love to do the same for you. 

When I’m not planning vacations for my clients, you’ll find me traveling with my husband and two teenage sons to fabulous scuba diving spots, hitting the road in our camper, or traveling to sprint car races. At home, our fur baby Ozzy the Goldendoodle hogs all the hugs and kisses. 


Cheryl Droud

Travel Advisor

At Beach Bum Getaways, I listen to my clients’ needs and travel wish lists and then turn them into vacations of a lifetime. With 15+ years of travel planning experience, today I specialize in designing “sun-and-fun” escapes to beach-y destinations where all your worries melt away. My planning approach is built on trust; I never suggest a property or excursion that I wouldn’t be thrilled to experience myself. 

My clients appreciate that I can offer them first-hand knowledge on destinations, resorts, and even activities on or off property. Planning travel is no longer a “shot in the dark” for them—and if I don’t have intel on a certain place or property, I know a trusted colleague who does! My knowledge and connections will save you the frustration of researching on your own and ensure you’re embarking on a vacation that’s truly worth your time and investment. 


When I’m not planning vacations for my clients, I’m traveling myself—both to relax and scout out new places to send my clients! At home, you can find me outside working in my garden or soaking up the sun in my pool.

If you’re ready to work with a travel pro you can trust, I would love to connect. Get in touch for your complimentary consultation call to get started.
