By Kat DeMarco / July 27, 2011
From Private Jet to Grand Le Meurice
It’s that time of the year where you have the itch to fly on a private jet and stay in a world-class hotel, but seek a truly unique, magical place that will also adore children and pets. We found just the place for you—the divine, five-star Le Meurice Hotel located Rue de Rivoli, Paris. Think of it as the grandest air charter Parisian-style trip of a lifetime.
Going on more than two centuries, the Le Meurice Hotel continues ranking as one of the most elegant hotels in the world. As one of the most beautiful addresses in Paris, the Parisian palace’s grounds are kept perfect—so breathtaking and romantic. And with its Tuileries Garden and best chefs, it’s the ultimate Jetaway.
In 2000, the extensive two-year renovation of Le Meurice was completed, restoring it to its original splendor as a classic French palace. With extraordinary decor, style and contemporary-chic quality—and magnificent new interiors by Philippe Starck—Le Meurice is home to the privileged and famous.
Simply put, Le Meurice is a sensational French palace, and because of its perfect location in the 1st district of Paris, couples or families can relax and children and pets are catered to as well. Le Meurice is one of the prestigious Dorchester Group Hotels.
Children Love Le Meurice
It’s always a concern for parents if the hotel they’ll be staying at is kid friendly. Le Meurice goes the extra mile for children and ensures they’ll have a remarkable, unforgettable experience. Le Meurice arranges visits to the Parc André Citroën, Jardin d’Acclimation or even cruises on the Bateaux-Mouches. Children especially enjoy special treasure hunts, carousel rides in the Tuileries Garden, and playing with custom-made toy wooden boats to sail in the boat pond in the garden. Le Meurice came up with a novel idea of giving children and parents with exclusive passport maps on arrival and taking them on a discovery of Paris’ little-known delights—soaking in the city’s magical sights.
Le Meurice also caters to tiny tots, and has highchairs and trusted babysitters. And children always like having their own bathrobe and slippers, color pencils and puzzle, a cartoon DVD, delightful sweets and a cuddly stuffed dog “Pistache.”
Pets: A-list at Hotel and Private Jet
Whether you have cats or dogs they’ll feel right a home at Le Meurice with complimentary pet baskets and custom-designed bowls with their name. Specific menus and food options are available, too. And if you have a dog, the hotel’s grooms are pleased to walk them in the Tuileries Garden.
Did you know that your pet can join you inside the cabin of your private chartered jet? In fact, since you’re likely to fall in love with Le Meurice, staying for several nights, you might want check booking an empty-leg air charter, which can save up to 70 percent of what a regular priced flight would cost.

Fly Jet to Maui Beachfront Estate
By Kat DeMarco / July 1, 2011
Really, next time you charter a private jet and want to feel like a king (or a princess, in my case), you simply must stay at this extraordinary beachfront estate–on a quarter-mile white sand beach. It’s a rare, yummy masterpiece; architecture and interior design includes every luxury imaginable.
Maui Beachfront Estate is Perfection
The estate, with five marble baths and two-half baths, sleeps 10 people in five impeccable bedrooms. The sumptuous decor inside the 40-foot high interior has been customized with the finest art treasures from around the world. This is a true beachfront palace where you’ll feel and live like a king or queen.
A cobalt blue-colored 60-foot long beachfront infinity-edge pool, waterfall, and three beachfront spas accommodating 25-plus people all have panoramic ocean views. Inside, there’s central A/C and a bedroom/media room with a nine-foot projection screen and plasma TV/DVD system. Other features include world-class TV/DVD/CD/digital cable stereo systems in every room (21 TVs total); gourmet kitchen; high-speed wireless Internet; BBQ; ocean view; dining/recreation room with nine-foot formal/billiards convertible table; and a deluxe gym with an ocean view. Simply put, this is a phenomenal beachfront estate.
This estate is a dramatic vision at night, as seen from the edge of the 60-foot luxury infinity-edge pool. The otherworldly effects of the home’s creative lighting schemes cast a luminescent glow against the tropical nighttime sky.
This palatial estate is the pinnacle of style: opulent beachfront luxury with every detail of the home customized with original art treasures and furnishings—handcrafted and imported from the far reaches of the world. The homeowner, a world-renowned artist, worked with celebrity interior designer Steven Cordrey to create the embodiment of tropical opulence and complement the amazing views of the Pacific, neighboring island of Molokai and the excellent quarter-mile white sand beach.
The home has been featured on former TV show Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and in various design magazines. From the 30-foot plush wrap-around sofa, located in the grand hall, every guest in the home has a comfortable, perfect place to gaze out at the ocean and pool areas.

- Private Jets and Posh Getaways
By Kat DeMarco / April 18, 2011
Private Jets Increase Happiness
Unlike flying on commercial airlines, chartering private jets makes people happy. Whether you own or charter a jet, it’s the safe, hassle-free experience that gives people peace of mind. After all, the American dream is about having freedom to build wealth and pursue happiness.
Although some people would debate on whether money can buy you happiness, no one can debate that having the wherewithal allows one to enjoy life to the fullest. For instance, take actor Johnny Depp, who told Vanity Fair magazine, “Money doesn’t buy you happiness. But it buys you a big enough yacht to sail right up to it.” Depp flies on private jets, too.
TV mogul Oprah Winfrey is another example of obtaining the American dream and makes no bones about how she loves her private jet. In 2009 she told the graduating class at Duke University, Durham, N.C., “It’s great to have a private jet. Anyone that tells you that having your own private jet isn’t great is lying to you.” Winfrey also told students to reach for the stars—become wealthy and successful. However, she also pointed out that being successful means helping other people along the way.
When Depp commented on his yacht, he was talking about sailing to his private island in the Bahamas, which he dubbed Little Hall’s Pond Cay. You don’t have to own a private island in order to stay at one; you can even rent a private island. Many celebrities and business tycoons who own private islands have built luxury resorts and posh villas that the general public can rent.
Private Jet Getaway to Necker Island
Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Limited Edition boasts numerous luxury properties for rental. Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands, north of Virgin Gorda, comes to mind. Accommodating up to 28 people, you can have exclusive use of Necker Island sharing 14 rooms—eight in the great house and six villa homes scattered around the island.
Based on a five-night stay, per person, per night, the rate is $1,946.00, if you arrive before Dec. 31, 2011. Rates are also available for couples, singles and people who have children, where you’d share the island with others.
But still, flying off to paradise to enjoy a vacation or honeymoon should start by being pampered on board a private plane. When flying to Necker Island, your chartered aircraft will land at Beef Island, and then you’ll be transferred by boat to the island. However, if you plan to charter a private Boeing Business Jet or Airbus 320, you can fly into St. Thomas or Puerto Rico.
- Pets on Private Jets with Pet Nanny
By Karen Di Piazza / Feb. 17, 2011
Private Jets and Pet Nanny
For business or leisure travel, more people are turning to on-demand private air charter instead of commercial airline service. Not only does private jet travel ensure complete privacy, security, comfortable seating and choice of catered food, but it also allows pets on board with the people who love them. Pets are part of the family, too, which led me to Sit ‘n Stay, a company that provides pet nanny service on board private planes.
In-flight Pet Service
As part of its in-flight pet nanny service, pets are specifically catered to, and that includes their food. The company’s focus is to make your pet feel like an important guest, too. The company says most of its personnel are licensed flight attendants who have extensive experience on commercial and private jets. Furthermore, the company says services offered by trained pet professionals are certified by the American Red Cross’ Pet First Aid and CPR programs, and are also fully insured by Pet Sitters International, LLC.
“We have also created specific safety recommendations and practices for pets on private jets so their trip is just as safe and secure as yours,” says Sit ‘n Stay. “When we’re your flight attendant, your pet is never an afterthought but rather a celebrated guest in the cabin!”
