  • Fantastic experience!

    "Shane is a great host, adventure guide, skipper and cook! This charter was a first-time experience for most of us (3 couples) and it was fantastic. Shane has spent more than six years doing charters out of Red Hook, and he knows a lot of awesome spots that are only accessible by boat. Before we arrived, he emailed a questionnaire to help plan activities, meals, beer & wine, etc., stocked the boat according to that, and we simply reimbursed him. We had breakfast & lunch on the boat, and 3 dinners with a special "drink of the day." The other nights we all ate at restaurants. We spent a full week just sailing, snorkeling, hiking, relaxing; the women did morning yoga on the trampoline. Shane laid out lots of options, let us choose our destinations and joined in the hikes and snorkeling. And he was happy to involve us in the actual sailing, anchoring, etc., although he's used to managing the boat solo. The beaches on the north side of Tortola were closed because of big swells, and even the Drake Channel was a little rough, but Shane knows all the tricks to avoid seasickness. We were glad to be on a catamaran rather than a monohull, and we skipped the longer haul to Anagada (not much there anyway), spending more time at remote spots on St. John instead. The diversity of marine life in the mangroves at Hurricane Hole and around Waterlemon Cay is incredible. Shane knows a lot about the history of the islands too: Indians, sugar plantations, pirates. Norman Island was the model for Stevenson's "Treasure Island", Dead Chest Island the origin of "Dead Man's Chest (Yo-Ho-Ho...)", Sandy Cay was in the opening credits of "Gilligan's Island." We had a great mix of out-of-the-way adventures plus some more standard stuff like Foxy's and the Soggy Dollar on Jost Van Dyke. Guiding LIght might seem a little tight for 7 people, but Shane is such a genial, easy-going guy that everything worked out wonderfully. Why would anybody choose a Moorings charter costing twice as much?"

  • Perfect family Christmas location

    "Could not ask for a more perfect location for three couples at different life stages to stay. Home was as described and the views spectacular. Little confusing to get to the first time, but nothing insurmountable. Highly recommend a jeep if your not use to navigating the island as the wrong turns can be quite the adventure! Home had everything we needed including some thing we hadn't even though of. We will most certainly make a repeat visit and highly recommend the home to anyone!"

  • Fabulous hideway with spectacular views

    "We, husband and 2 young adult children, spent New Year's eve week in this lovely cottage on the hillside overlooking picturesque Magen's Bay. Ken and Joanne were wonderful hosts. They responded promptly when we inquired about renting and during the week when we had questions. Ken met us at the airport and escorted us to the home. The location was perfect for us. And what a treat to have coffee on the deck overlooking the bay. We had a rental car and were able to get to most places on the island within 10-15 minutes. The home was well-stocked with the basics and beach towels."
