What Our Carefree Clients Said

A family group that we booked aboard 52' Southern Comfort in tandem with 2 other yachts for New Years 2021-2022 said: Lynne at Carefree was excellent at listening and delivering. She kept the momentum going in what turned out to be a full year of planning and prepping for 19 of us on this trip. She was very thorough and helped us better understand just how special these kinds of vacations can be. Well done!! Mike C., Connecticut

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A family group that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Southern Comfort in late June 2022 said:


Our week has come to an end! I want to thank you for setting us up with Ish and Julia on Southern Comfort. This week went beyond our expectations! They are an incredible crew!

Thank you!

Debbie R., Georgia

A multi-generational family group that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Southern Comfort in May 2022 said:

Everything was great. From the moment we contacted Lynne until stepping off the Southern Comfort! The booking was seamless thanks to Lynne.

Julia and Ish were amazing. Our group of 8 included two 10 year old boys, two couples in their 30s and early 40s, and grandparents celebrating a 50 year wedding anniversary. Even with such a wide range of ages, Julia and Ish managed to make each of us feel special. The food and attention to service was outstanding! As our ten year old grandson summed it up, “Mimi, this vacation was above and beyond amazing!”

We would highly recommend Lynne, Ish and Julia to anyone seeking a great vacation in the USVI!

A group of couples that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Southern Comfort in April 2022 said:

Lynne … 

We had the most AMAZING trip with Ish and Julia … everything about them and the boat was fabulous. Food was phenomenal … preparation and presentation was as good as any high end restaurant I have ever been to. Boat was immaculate. I personally have no feedback on how to improve the product other than I told Ish and Julia that they need a “marketing” video of some sort as you can’t appreciate their personalities with their current web presence. I would not hesitate booking Southern Comfort or Ish / Julia as crew on any charter. 110% satisfied customer.

Your advice on the best way to approach this and all communication was spot on … other than a few minor self imposed issues it all went off without any problems and exactly as you presented. I appreciated the web based preference sheet and all the additional information that is available on your web page. 110% satisfied customer.

Thanks again for directing me to Southern Comfort and Ish / Julia … I am attaching a picture and I think our collective smiles affirm how much fun we all had !!! … we are “old friends that made new memories” !!!

Leonard R., Texas


I agree 100%! Or should I say 110%?!?!?! I cannot speak for everyone but you have done so very well!
