  • An Adventurous and Spectacular Way to Experience the Virgin Islands!

    "We recently returned from an amazing week-long charter on the Bel Ami with Captain Dave and Bobbie Rae. We booked the vacation almost a year ago to celebrate our 10th anniversary. In the time between booking and arrival, we had several conversations with Dave about our interests, concerns and desires for the trip. Without exception, the vacation lived up to all of our expectations. Captain Dave enthusiastically greeted us at the airport, brought us to the Bel Ami and we were off and sailing within an hour or two of landing. The first day was spent orienting ourselves to the boat and seeing how we adjusted to sailing. Captain Dave took great care to gauge our aclimation to sea life (I wore a trans-dermal patch, my wife did not). We spent the remainder of the day snorkeling (with Captain Dave as a fantastic guide), eating and relaxing. The rest of the week was spent sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, eating, drinking and enjoying life to its highest potential. We visited twelve different islands in seven days. We indicated several places that we wanted to visit, but based on numerous reviews, we allowed Dave to tailor the trip to our interests using his vast knowledge of the Virgin Islands. We were blessed with fantastic weather and favorable winds. We went to the Baths on Virgin Gorda, but Captain Dave was experienced enough to check the cruise boat schedule to make sure we didn't share the site with hordes of people from the massive boats. It was a special pleasure to jump into the perfect, azure water to swim to shore on Sandy Spit and Sandy Cay, and an even more special experience to then have Captain Dave bring our towels, camera and sandals to shore in the Bel Ami's dinghy. Captain Dave offered advise on hikes to take and was polite enough to ask if we wanted to go on our own or with him as a guide. The same was true of meals. We ate many meals together as a foursome, but we were offered as many private romantic meals as we wanted. And the food! Captain Dave is a fantastic cook. The meals were varied and excellent. He had emailed a detailed food preference questionnaire prior to arrival and he tailored our meals to the information we provided. For instance, my wife made special mention of her love of corn, and there it was in our first meal. The attention to detail is amazing. If a sailing vacation has ever been on your bucket list, then this the boat to take and these are the people to take you."

  • gorgeous but physically challenging

    "Place was beautiful and the views are incredible. The pool is really nice. But everything is a hike apart. Over stairs that are uneven and somewhat crumbling. For those of us of advancing years and less than the best knees this was quite the challenge. The free breakfast was a nice Added Touch, but we only did it once because of the difficulty in getting down to the water. The staff was great, very helpful and they would come and pick us up right at our villa. But there was still quite a hike out from the house to the road where the car met us. The condo itself is quite lovely, with the wraparound porch and views that do not end. Everything was clean, worked as expected and was very comfortable."

  • Had what we were looking for at a great price!

    "We wanted more modest and casual vacation lodging than we had at the Ritz Carlton three years before. We found it at more than 1/2 the price and we saved more money having a kitchen and front load washer and dryer. The kitchen had what we needed to prepare breakfast and a few simple meals. The beach view from the screened deck was beautiful and the beach was small, clean and not busy. We never swam at that beach nor the pool because we were busy touring throughout the island, BVI and St. John. We booked two boat trips at the sport shack on the beach and both were reasonably priced and professional. We never used the fitness center or hot tub at the Elysian but saw there was access available. We ate at two of the beach restaurants and as usual found the service to be very nice. Mr. Miller was friendly and helpful and even carried our trash away. He was very helpful with giving us logistical information during our stay. I would defiantly recommend renting a car if you stay here. Red Hook is 5 minutes away for grocery shopping, restaurants, and ferry."
