I found myself wondering how I could make all this wonderful adventure continue! You both are consummate professionals with great poise and style to boot. Karen and I will remember your great care and attention for many years to come! It is rare to not have any complaints about a vacation…everything was perfection. Kristine, your culinary creations could stand with the best restaurants and your attention to individual preferences was superb. Gareth, it was very clear early on our voyage that you love sailing and are an expert in all aspects of seamanship. You guys are a great team and we felt like royalty under your care.

Thank you’ is an understatement. You both treated me like royalty and were so patient and kind looking after the non-sailor and at time non-swimmer. I will have to go to the tailor to add inches to my waistband! The food sun, wind, and laughter will be remembered always. Thank you both ever so much and I thank the yacht, she is a lovely ship and she kept us safe and sound.

Each time we come back to the BVIs we think, how could this trip top the last one. Well, you succeeded. The food stood out as the best EVER! The sailing on perfect winds was the best ever! Because everything was seen to by you guys we were truly able to relax, play games, and enjoy our family vacation. It is so difficult to disembark, but know that a little piece of each of us will remain with you. Thank you for helping make this our best trip yet. Hopefully we will see you again soon. Until then, our prayers and best wishes for safe travels and a wonderful life.

Our deep and sincere thanks for creating a spectacular memory of such a beautiful place. From Normal Island, Peter Island, New Years with you, and Anageda, it was all spectacular.
The food, your skills as sailors and hosts, and all you did for us were much appreciated.

We would like report to you our marvelous impression about Xenia.We loved everything about Xenia: The boat design, the comfortable cabins, the sailing, the lovely beaches, and above all, Gareth and Kristine’s attention and friendliness. Every moment was perfect, the food was wonderful—words cannot describe this magical week. We will be there again next May, and it is our intention to repeat the cruise on December 2015.This was the best of our eight catamaran trips.

Our charter on Xenia was simply wonderful. It exceeded our expectations! Gareth and Kristine were professional, friendly and fun! The food was fabulous! Kristine is a wonderful chef and we loved every breakfast, lunch, dinner, appetizer, dessert and specialty cocktail! The one dinner we had in a restaurant on land could not compare to Kristine’s. We sailed, swam, snorkeled, skied, and tubed when we were on the water. We hiked, had a spa day and rode mopeds at some of our stops. It was relaxing and exhilarating at the same time. This was our first charter and it definitely won’t be the last! Thank you Gareth and Kristine for making our celebration trip the best!

It was an amazing week. You guys were great. The boat and crew were amazing. Gareth and Kristine were A+. Loved both of them. Above and beyond in service and personality. They were flexible and fun and very professional. The sailing was great, the activities were fun. Gareth went snorkeling with us and was a riot. Lot’s of free diving pictures. Kristine’s food was perfect. This is the second time I’ve done a charter and this experience was twice as good as the first one.

There are not enough superlatives to describe the amazing week Jos and Chrizaan has provided us with. The meals that Chrizaan conjured were of Cordon Bleu standard and delicious. A trip through Paradise.

To say that you were an integral part of making this such an amazing trip would be an understatement. You took such great care of us, cooking, mixing cocktails, providing entertainment on the water and safely guiding us through the BVI. It was a trip that we will never forget. – The Foleys

Oh my goodness this has been the most amazing week! We have never had a vacation as amazing as this and each of you had so much to do with what a fabulous week we had.

This past week has been one of the greatest adventures my family has been on. Between playing heads-up after dinner and swimming with Simathon the dolphin, this will be a trip I will never forget.
