Her love of entertaining and cooking will delight your taste buds and quench the thirst of the saltiest sailor.

Debora and Steven:

We are finally…and depressingly…back to reality! And that really sucks!

“Thank you” seems so inadequate…but never the less expresses what your incredible hospitality and commitment contributed to making our charter adventure such a wonderful success!

Previous to our departure, we were excited about the prospects of our adventure…but at least somewhat apprehensive about spending a week on a boat with two people we didn’t know and had no idea how we would interact. Your professionalism, your kindness, your friendliness, your hospitality and your knowledge of the area made our week incredibly enjoyable!

We cannot begin to thank you enough for the effort you put forth in making our adventure such a tremendous success! It was beyond our wildest expectations…and our expectations were incredibly high.

We will definitely stay in touch as we plan for our next adventure to the BVI…and it will, if our luck holds…include you in any and everything we do!

Warmest personal regards…

Luke

Wow, wow, wow! What a fabulous night! My husband has always been very taken with Catamarans, and if the views and the cruise and the scenery wasn’t enough, Deborah and Steven treated us like royalty but at the same time as friends!! Can’t think of a more perfect way we could have celebrated this momentous occasion, we were just sad to leave….but, of course delighted to return to our beautiful haven in the sky. Thank you all so very much for making this happen for us on such short notice!! I am usually a better planner, but life has been very hectic these past months. Can’t say enough about how perfect this all is. We will obviously put accolades wherever we can for everyone!
