Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A repeat client and group of couples that we booked aboard 56' Catamaran Altesse in April, 2019 said:

Hi Lynne,

We had an excellent trip! Both Altesse and At Home in the Tropics were fabulous. Thanks again for all your help. I'm happy to provide my thoughts about the charter.

As usual, we had a top notch trip with Altesse and Richard and Sarah. They are excellent hosts and it shows in how pristine they keep Altesse and everything associated with their voyages. They are easy to communicate with and they keep all the preference information in mind when preparing for trips. Richard is a great captain - always keeping the sailing enjoyable and finding anchorages and moorings where others can't (it pays to know people!). Sarah starts the morning with ideas for each day that we could choose from and with this being our second cruise they took us to amazing new spots and some favorites as well. The cuisine was amazing. We had a huge variety of food, tailored to our tastes with something different to experience each day. Sarah's presentations are always elegant. Sarah and Richard provide the perfect experience - joining in with our group on many occasions for hikes or island exploration and also giving us many ideas for things to enjoy on our own.

I can't say enough about the ease and experience of Carefree Charter services. Everything was a breeze, from booking the catamaran (with great suggestions from Lynne) to getting information on island accommodations and a variety of excursions (fishing, tours, etc.). Lynne was always available and very responsive to any request. She is also very knowledgeable about the vessels, the crews, the islands, etc. which made for a great experience. Information on the booking and payments was excellent, making it easy for us to navigate our group through the process.

Thanks again for making our second BVI trip a great success!!

Hi Lynne,

We can't thank you enough for all that you did to ensure that our vacation on Altesse was nothing short of AMAZING! Your quick responses to any of our questions, your guidance on selecting the best boat for our family, and your helpfulness in the entire charter process. It was truly a trip of a lifetime!

Altesse is a beautiful boat - impeccable and had everything we could have ever wanted - the champagne deck is awesome! But what really made the trip for us were Rich and Sarah. We cannot say enough about them - Rich was an excellent captain and always made sure we moored in just the perfect spots to watch the sunsets. He is so knowledgeable on all of the islands and shared many fun and interesting stories about the BVI. He and Sarah created the perfect itinerary for our family ensuring that we could experience as much of the BVI as possible in our 7 day charter. They made us feel at home immediately and pampered us the entire time. One of the major highlights of the trip was Sarah's extraordinary cooking - we looked forward to every meal! I don't think we have ever had such delicious food - and the presentations were incredible - so beautiful that we felt a little guilty digging in! I don't know how you could ever find a more thoughtful and engaging crew. We all said we would like to return to Altesse with Rich and Sarah next year. They gave us the perfect Christmas!

Thank you for everything Lynne - it couldn't have been more perfect!

A family that we booked aboard for Altesse for 11 nights in June, 2018 shared their Altesse guest book entry with us. As they told us on a glowing follow up call regarding their experience, they felt this entry truly said it all:

After reading the Altesse guest book, every conceivable glowing adjective and positive comment has been previously stated. We ditto all those comments.

Thank you Rich & Sarah for sharing your home with us for a magical 11 day experience. The Altesse is a beautiful yacht but Rich and Sarah transform it into a luxury resort and truly royal holiday we will never forget. You have exceeded every expectation, your dedication to excellence is stunning, and your taste, style, and service is impeccable. We would love to reciprocate in the future and share our homes in Virginia and Florida with you. Warmest Regards,
