Testimonials

Guests aboard AVALON in June, 2011
Dear Paul and Mel,

I cannot tell you how many times I think of you two and wonder ……..how did they do everything they did??!!! Our children are back in school and all reports written about the summer ( as teachers always make students do ) are all about the big boat trip ( which is rather discouraging considering how much effort I put into the other 10 weeks ). You worked so hard, but made it look so effortless. You were constantly meeting our every need ….and thinking of TONS of fun pampering treats we never even imagined!

Paul, to you we say thank you for all the fun snorkeling and diving excursions, the tube and wake boarding, the exotic boat drinks, superb dinning service, entertaining stories, magical sunsets ( yes , it did seem that you even arranged those ) and sailing! Mel , to you we thank the 10 delicious pounds we gained, cooking lessons, clean cabins ( we still cannot figure out when you tidied up everything ) , great anchoring, and stories about England and Paul (oops, maybe we won’t admit we know those !) It sounds as if Mel is getting less praise, but not so, her food counted for a lot … it was truly fabulous!

You are a fantastic team that works together like a well oiled machine, or an old married couple….always making us feel like we were part of the family ( and by the end of the too-short week we felt as if we were leaving family). Now is probably a good time to apologize for the overly emotional goodbye (I know how you Britt’s hate that mushy stuff) and you were probably right refusing our pleas to come home with us. We do still have that spare room…ahem.

Seriously, thank you for your outstanding service. We have the utmost respect and praise for the two of you. You are both tops in your field and we are very fortunate to have spent this time with you.

Sincerely,

Pete and Heidi and Family

Dear Paul and Mel,

Happy New Year! We hope your second charter was as fun as your first one. We really enjoyed the trip – the relaxing, water sports, chilling, snorkeling, diving, the food, and especially your service. You can count on seeing us in the future.

Best wishes for a great new year.

Hi Paul & Mel:

Happy New Year from the first graduating class of Avalon! We can’t think of enough superlatives for week we had with together with the both of you and we can’t wait to do it again! In the mean time, let us know if you would like to use us for a “proper” reference/referral (sorry Paul…my girls can’t help themselves to use your characterization all the time for it’s the only right way to do something).

We thought you might appreciate the fish we caught that we could eat at our place in Florida on New Year’s Eve…a 27” black grouper! I’m sure Mel you could have prepared it much better than we, but we certainly enjoyed it.

We have a number of photos we’d like to send you of Avalon to use as you wish. Your card doesn’t have the Road Town mailing address so, please let me know where you would like the Flash Drive sent.

All the best for 2011!

Absolutely perfect time was had by all,a vacation that turned out to be something that we all will cherish for a long time. Paul and Melissa were fabulous hosts and made us feel at home from the minute we arrived until the time we reluctantly departed. The boat was immaculate, the food was perfection, and we really can’t think of anything to improve the experience we had.
