"Lynn & Mark, Very seldom do things go exactly as planned, almost never do things exceed expectations.... this week was one of those times.  The snorkelling was spectacular the sails were exciting, and above all, the company with Lynn and Mark seeing to our every need made this a wonderful week.  Sadly now back to Philadelphia... cold and dreary as it is this time of year but with warm memories with new friends in Mark & Lynn to keep the memories alive.  See you again."
  • Thanksgiving Week 2014: Family of 5
"Many thanks for a wonderful trip & celebration of Charles 70th.  We loved all aspects & TLC you both provided.  The boat is exactly what we'd hoped for & we are delighted to have found you.  The food was incredible, your detailed knowledge of all the best spots was invaluable & appreciated by all.  This has been a great success - many thanks!"

Don't you deserve a bit of pampering and some fun in the sun?
