  • 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."

  • The view from the top

    "Gail and Curlson are wonderful hosts, friendly, helpful, and very accommodating. The rooms were spotless, and the upstairs not only spacious but filled with all sorts of useful items ranging from beach chairs and towels to an honor bar with more types of rum than I ever knew existed. The downstairs bedroom is small, but has everything a friend or second couple would need. But what really made our stay outstanding was the location, near the top of a hill outside Sapphire Bay.The view was magnificent. As soon as the sun came out, I would wander out to the porch and watch the sky paint highlights on the clouds over the bay. At night, the lights along the sides of the bay glittered like a crown. We were also surrounded by chickens, which wander freely all over the island. We could hear the roosters crowing if we left the doors and windows open. It made me feel like I was someplace else. Also, the unit is only about 5 minutes from the ferry to St. Johns, which is much less developed and frantic than St. Thomas. We went over several times and took cabs to the beach there. Overall, a delightful place to visit. It totally changed my mind about Caribbean vacations. Alan & Linda"

  • Wonderful family vacation!

    "We had a lovely family vacation in St. Thomas and this location was perfect for me, my husband and our almost 2-year old. The property was immaculately maintained and service was amazing. All of the staff was incredibly warm and genuine and we loved getting to know everyone at the resort. From the pool to the beach, the Ritz provided everything that you would ever need. We also found the food to be quite good at all of the restaurants on property. Location was easy to get to from the airport and having the option to get groceries stocked in the room was perfect. We are already talking about our trip for next year!"

  • Perfect situated on the beach!!!

    "Upon our family's arrival we loved the place. It was the kids first visit to the USVI, they said it was worth the long flight from Denver. This condo,with its amazing view and just a short walk across the beach to snorkel, was everything we could of asked. We have told our friends and would recommend this to anyone. Thank you so much, from the beginning of our booking to the end, we will come back. Tim, Billie, Madddie & Kyle"
