What our clients say...

Just to say ABC (Anegada Beach Club) was a blast! All the transfers worked like clockwork (although a bit of a hairy landing on Anegada on the way out) The team at ABC, particularly Esther & David were fabulous, they even got us some yoga mats for sunrise practice on the deck! We hired a car and ate all over without a bad meal. So much lobster and so many painkillers! The boys & girls were blown away. Desperately hoping we can return to BVIs another time. Many thanks for all your brilliant organisation.

Hi Joyce, on behalf of my entire family, we want to say thank you for the suggestion. The place has unbelievable topography and it honestly exceeded expectations. The Bay suites don't have the best view, but it gives you everything you need. I think we made the right choice, and it will probably be hard to - not go back! Thank you again for your assistance in making it all happen!

Joyce, One of the best trips of our life!!!! Nick, our skipper was absolutely perfect in every way. Great personality, very knowledgeable, funny, service oriented, etc. He made the trip perfect!!!! Angela is an incredible chef. The itinerary was great. Nick did a good job. We will definitely do it again, probably with our family. Thanks Joyce!!!

Hi Joyce! Just wanted to thank you for an unforgettable experience in the BVI. I had such a wonderful time resetting and relaxing. Exactly what I needed. Hope to sail again next year! All the best.

Thank you for your email and yes, we did have a wonderful holiday. We were very impressed with the Blue Waters resort and with Guana Island and everything went very smoothly and yes, the assistance did work as you had planned it. Unfortunately, my ribs prevented me from doing very much but both locations were perfect places to relax and unwind and for the bones to heal. Thank you again for making all the arrangements. With best wishes

We have been on a lot of vacations together over the years but staying at the Blue Lagoon was the best ever! As we left the ferry landing we were met by Heather who provided us with refreshing towels, luggage transportation & rental car. She then escorted us to the villa & we were amazed at the beauty of the place! We found the villa to be very comfortable & well appointed. Heather was extremely helpful with all of our needs including dinner reservations. The beach at Mahoe Bay was amazing with great snorkeling and swimming. On Sunday we couldn’t find a regular broadcast of the superbowl so we watched the Nickelodeon version with Sponge Bob SquarePants ( made a good story) . On Wednesday & Thursday Erica made dinner and did an outstanding job , we’re all crazy about her and her talents. I would like to thank you again for the wonderful job you did, your patience in answering all my emails and for making this such a memorable trip. We will be back.

Joyce, I wanted to take a moment to reach out and thank you for recommending Long Bay Beach Resort to us for our winter getaway. It’s beyond perfect. It’s so easy to get here and it’s dead quiet and peaceful. The waves are breaking 50 feet from our porch. Exactly what the doctor ordered as they say.

Rick & Judi, Virginia

All back in one piece having had that most amazing holiday. Your itinerary was perfect in every way - could not have been better. We loved both hotels and the contrasting islands.

February 2024, Tortola, Sugar Mill & Anegada, Anegada Beach Club

We absolutely loved The Sugar Mill and as many have said before us, the hospitality was superb. Rupert & Andrea, together with Dennis & Mary certainly know how to make their guests feel so welcome and one of the family. The Rosewood was exceptional, set in a great location, amenities were fantastic and the most friendly and happy staff. We loved discovering all the hidden bays on both Tortola and Virgin Gorda and enjoyed Jost Van Dyke, Oil Nut Bay, Saba Rock to name but a few. We would love to return to the BVI with friends and family before too long and so will almost certainly be touch.

We had a great time at Guavaberry - many thanks for your helping organising everything. The apartment was ideal and the diving fantastic.

December 2023 Virgin Gorda

Well a big thank you Joyce for organising our holiday in the BVI,it went like clockwork,you certainly know your stuff. Sebastian’s was lovely,food fantastic,entertainment excellent,location good,on the beach. Loved Smugglers cove,only thing scared us a little was the hills,inclines,bends etc. Anegada different altogether,flat island,made driving easier.beautiful Accommodation overlooking the lovely blue sea,food again very good,and all the staff Darling,Esther and David very friendly and knowledgeable. But in our opinion Virgin Gorda was the cream of the crop,Guavaberry Cottage had everything,Tina had not overlooked anything and the beaches Savannah Bay and Spring Bay were to die for,it was Paradise,clear shallow blue sea and soft white sand,just bliss So a big thank you Joyce,I can honestly say we think it’s got to be our best destination we’ve been to,and we are quite well travelled,experiencing Barbados 3 times,Antigua 3 times,Turks and Caicos,Aruba,Grenada,Tobago. Thanks again,hopefully do some business again with you sometime

Thanks for providing a very professional bespoke service to us in organising our two-week holiday to the British Virgin Islands. We both enjoyed the travel and sailing experience and it was just such great fun! Sugar Mill Hotel, Tortola (4 nights): A superb location, at the west end of the island very close to the sea. Our room/suite, 142 on the upper level of The Plantation House was large well equipped, and we had a beautiful view of the sea and tumbling waves from our balcony. Although our stay was BnB we ate in the hotel’s restaurant each evening and the dining experience was very good. Dream Yacht Charters, 7 nights - Shared Catamaran. Our 62ft catamaran had 6 double berths, and it was nice that there were just ten paying travellers, plus crew. Captain Max and Chef Silvi were excellent and extremely good at their jobs, and it was good to see the sails erected on most days. The itinerary was well thought out and we visited many islands with beautiful sandy beaches, and had numerous snorkelling experiences. The catamaran was equipped with paddle boards and kayaks (which we utilised). In addition, there were numerous opportunities to try the local cocktails at various beach bars and resorts. We recommend the "Pain Killers" at Soggy Dollar, in Jost Van Dyke's White Bay. Cocos Hotel and Spa, Antigua (3 nights): Another superb location, with a choice of two sandy beaches and a freshwater swimming pool. Staying on an All-inclusive basis allowed us to have breakfast and dinner in the main restaurant overlooking the sea and extensive beach. Overall, a very enjoyable holiday, with the week on the catamaran being such good fun and therefore our favourite.

We had a wonderful time. Thank you for all your planning for us. I'll definitely get back to you when we return to Anegada. We absolutely loved Anegada Beach Club, and we can't wait to return. The staff was amazing - we felt very connected to them all right away. We would also fly out there again next time and take the ferry back. It was great to experience both. Until next time, Signe

April 2023 - Anegada

Anegada Beach Club was the perfect fit for us. Just gorgeous. We were met at the ferry, arrived at reception, had breakfast and our room was ready by 11am. The front desk was fabulous. David, Esther & Darling were so lovely and helpful, they booked car hire, restaurants even managed to find a local guide to take Jon on a massive nature hike in the uninhabited part of the islands. We loved the palapa, that location is really hard to beat. The food at ABC was possibly the best on the island but we tried most of the restaurants to compare. Had lobster x9 different ways. We found some great snorkelling off Loblolly, possibly the best we’ve seen in the Caribbean for years. Jon had a lot of success with bone fishing. The return journey was so much better, the private charter was spot on and we loved lunch at Trellis Bay. Antigua Airport had the lounge open so we were able to eat there then sleep all the way home so no jet lag. We’re seriously thinking about taking our adult sons and their partners so I reckon you’ll be hearing again from me very soon! Thank you for your excellent service! I’ll forward you a few photos.

Thank you for arranging our trip once again. I was so happy to be back in the BVI after so long. It was a wonderful holiday and a great fact finding mission for future visits. Sugar Mill was lovely and all connections were all to plan. Andrea, Rupert, Dennis, Mary and the team at the Sugar Mill were impeccable hosts and have that special quality of making you feel like you’re their only guests - a special establishment.

Hi Joyce, YES! We had a great time on the sailing course and learned a lot. Our instructor was awesome and we really enjoyed the other student onboard with us. It was truly an awesome adventure! Thanks for all of your help.

We had a brilliant holiday, thank you. Everything went to plan. - The skipper and chef were absolutely brilliant. Andjela did an amazing job of catering for Alexandra (and everyone else). - We got a free upgrade to beachside on arrival at Lambert Beach for the first 2 nights. - We got a free upgrade to superior cabin on the boat. The holiday was superb and we loved it!

I just want to thank you for making our time in the BVI so special.

All the arrangements you made for us worked out just beautifully ... The Cliffs ... the ferry schedule... right down to the taxi driver who met us in Spanish Town on Virgin Gorda. Thank you so much for planning out every detail for us. We loved our stay at Oil Nut Bay. What a special property. And what great people. We talked to several of the staff at length, including the Executive Chef, and they all couldn't say enough nice things about their boss, Mr. Johnson. It is a very special place. I have to admit I had pretty high expectations of The Cliffs units from what I saw on the internet and in your emails. I'm happy to report that they lived up to and actually exceeded all my expectations. It was perfect! My wife and I loved our time there. We've traveled to 41 countries and stayed at some pretty spectacular places and we'd put The Cliffs right up there on top of the list. After we left Oil Nut Bay we spent a couple of weeks sailing with our kids and their spouses. It was a real sailing trip. We had winds every day of 20 knots. The winds around the rain squalls hit 30 knots. So it was brace yourself and hang on. Fortunately, we didn't lose anyone or anything and got the boat back in one piece. Thanks again, Joyce. It was a real pleasure working with you. I hope that you have a wonderful summer season and that 2022 turns out to be a very successful business year for you. If we can ever serve as a reference for you don't hesitate to be in touch.

memorable and unforgettable birthday holiday!

I don't know where to begin to thank you for all the guidance and directions you have given me on this memorable and unforgettable birthday holiday!   L & S Jeep rental - Orlando and Chudney were truly amazing, helpful, and caring for sure! They did take care of me every step of the way, from point A to point B.  I felt so relieved to have such reliable people taking me around. Mango Bay Resort - beautiful, relaxing, and comfortable.  Caia was on top of her game, managing that resort, making sure everything was working for the comfort of her guests. My dream to be at the Baths on my birthday was just exhilarating- it will surely be next year's post card for me. Mad Dog bar restaurant was fun - Jude made you feel comfy and welcome.  On my way back to my room at Mango Bay, there was a beautiful peacock shaped towel with petals all over my bed - Buddy, their gardener told the housekeepers it was my birthday. I met so many nice people everywhere I went.   You surely made my milestone birthday an unforgettable one!  No wonder you are labelled the 'BVI SPECIALIST' because that is really YOU!!!

The BVI even more spectacular than we remembered!

We are back and you won’t be surprised to hear we had a fantastic time! Despite all the hassles with testing it was well worth it and the whole trip was amazing. The BVI even more spectacular than we remembered!   The Rosewood Little Dix was a very special place to stay and we loved the accommodation. The Lighthouse Apartments were in the ideal location and worked well for us. Car hire all worked well and we enjoyed being able to explore the island.   Thanks again for all your help in organising.  A very memorable trip and we are already trying to figure out when we can return!

My thanks for your help with this special event as all went as I hoped it would

Hello Joyce. Yes, Rosewood was very pleasurable. The facility was absolutely wonderful as was the staff from boat captain, picking us up on Beef Island, to the butlers meeting us at the dock and the entire waiting staff was as we hoped it would be. Our room upon arrival had a large red heart in rose petals drawn out on the bed with a lovely note wishing us a happy 50th. My thanks for your help with this special event as all went as I hoped it would.

thank you for organising our fabulous holiday to the BVI

Just wanted to send you a message as soon as we could to say thank you for organising our fabulous holiday to the BVI. Its over 18 months since our dream holiday was cancelled because of the pandemic and you put together an amazing package for us to replace this. We were anxious about travelling in this ‘new normal’ world but your planning and recommendations worked out fine. We loved the accommodation at Lighthouse Villas and although Cane Garden Bay itself was only just beginning to open, there was enough to keep us entertained. We enjoyed a tour of the island and got to see all that Tortola had to offer. The highlight if our trip was undoubtedly the cabin charter from Scrub Island. We made great friends with the other passengers and the crew were fabulous. We visited lots of beautiful places including the new resort at Saba Rock which you featured in your newsletter. The charter company made all the arrangements for our return covid tests which took away our anxiety. We were well and truly spoiled on the trip with fabulous food, great company and spectacular scenery. Hard to pick a favourite but we enjoyed exploring Anegada on a scooter. Then to top it all off, our last night’s stay at Lambert beach was just divine! What a luxurious setting- gave us that last but of ‘r&r’ before our journey home. Thank you again for dealing so swiftly with our queries and putting together such an amazing package for us. Have attached a couple of photos too.

Great holiday, probably our best ever.  The kids loved the warm water and the snorkelling in particular.  They now want to learn to dive.  Thank you for a fabulous holiday.

all the travel arrangements were worry free

Our family were keen to try sailing but had never done it before.  Joyce gave us all the help and advice we needed to book a crewed yacht.  We had an amazing time and all the travel arrangements were worry free.  Thanks Joyce!
