    Reviews from our Carefree Clients

    A group of couples that we booked aboard 48' Catamaran Sweetest Thing in April, 2018 said:

    We are one week off The Sweetest Thing and still feeling a bit of afterglow. Alyse and John batted 1,000.

    The meals - morning noon and evening were an adventurous variety, with quality and presentation worthy of Bon Appetit's glossy pages. I would have had a good trip if we never left Red Hook and sat in the harbor eating.

    We are 6 68 year old life time friends that always have fun and have unlimited stories about ourselves with other discussions. Alyse and John tolerated and humored us, treated us with respect, kindness, and became part of our group with ease which made for a comfortable trip.

    Having Alyse and John swim and snorkel with us on some of our swims got us to some great spots and kept us safe and comfortable. We saw and swam with sea life we will not forget - an octopus, rays, sea turtles....

    Alyse and John operate as a seamless team, in the galley and operating the boat. I hope jelly bellys will start to work for Alyse.

    I think that Tom's review was spot-on. We all had a great time, maybe our best vacation ever. It really was "living the dream."

    Lynne,

    I will add another "review" of our charter on the Sweetest Thing.

    Six "old" friends sailed with John and Alyse on the Sweetest Thing from April 7-14, 2018. We actually ran out of superlatives to describe the excellent food and service we received. Wonderful, awesome, spectacular--what more can I say?? It truly was a trip of a lifetime, and we thank John and Alyse for providing us with an experience like no other!

    Thanks Lynne. All we can say is the vacation and experience exceeded our expectations. Your service and recommendation was excellent, and we appreciate your attention to detail, follow up and execution.

    The yacht was surprisingly comfortable and roomy for a party of seven. John and Alyse did an excellent job of providing an exciting itinerary, with activities for everyone in the family. Alyse's menu and execution was great, and we were amazed by the outstanding food and service she and John provided. Their experience in the hospitality and service industry definitely shined. My children were impressed by how hard they worked to insure we had the vacation and experience of a lifetime.

    We are happy to highly recommend you, John, Alyse and Sweetest Thing to anyone looking for a fun adventurous and relaxing vacation to make lasting family memories. We wouldn't change a thing!

    Lynne,

    Wow. Just wow. Sweetest Thing was amazing and Jackson and Chelsea were outstanding. Thank you for setting this up for us!

    I am sitting in the St Thomas airport awaiting our flight home and I can't wait to plan our next sailing trip...

    Again thanks. Trip of a lifetime.
