“Unique and charming Boat & Breakfast”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

We had a lovely time experience this unique and charming boat & breakfast! The Cooks were fantastic hosts and Susan and I had a very enjoyable night away. The breakfast was sumptuous and the bed fully rocked us to sleep with the gentle motion of the waves. Truly and great memory for us! Matt & Susan

“What A Neat Experience!”

What a neat experience sleeping and hanging out on the boat!! It was so nice to meet Kay & Jonathan and visit. Those blueberry pancakes were super delicious and my bed was nice and comfy. I loved waking up to the water and bird noises - very relaxing. The boat ride was a great bonus! I really liked seeing all the boats and pelicans and the 2 dolphins were so cool. Carol V

“A Little Piece of Paradise!”

person found this review helpful

There is definitely a little piece of paradise here! This is the first time we have stayed overnight in a "big boat" and enjoyed the experience so very much. Kay and Jonathan went out of their way to make our stay special with flowers, wine, gourmet breakfasts (with loads of rum!!) and mostly their encouragement to "relax." We will especially remember the conversation about family, politics and life. And of course you know who - Skipper - our instant friend and protector. Violet & Peter Tungate

“Great Weekend All Around!”
Reviewed 15 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This was our first time staying on a sailboat and I have to admit it seemed a little awkward that we would be staying in tight quarters with a couple we did not know. The minute we stepped onto the Dream Lover all of our hesitations were alleviated! Kay welcomed us with open arms as if we had known her forever! We were having such a nice time with Kay, Jonathan and their cute little dog skipper that we almost missed the sunset on the beach. Breakfast was amazing every morning. Kay is a wonderful cook and both of them were very entertaining to be with. The location couldn't be better either. We were able to walk to everything, shopping, bars, resterauunts and the beach. It was so nice sitting on the deck of the boat that we actually never even made it to the beach other than for a walk or to see the sunset. Great weekend! Thank you Kay, Jonathan, and Skipper!

“Perfect Stay”
Reviewed 19 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

What a perfect stay we have enjoyed aboard Dream Lover. Arriving for a Valentine's Day destination wedding we quickly realized our accommodations were far beyond even where the bride and groom were staying! The berth/captain's quarters were literally the best we've ever encountered on a boat. The bed was heaven! We slept like the dead with the rocking. Even the rain storm added to our adventure on the water here. We loved the Corinthian spirit, shared tales & delicious DELICIOUS meals. I'd put Kay up against any Iron Chef in any galley in the world! She's an artist! their generosity and welcome are beyond compare. we loved our time with Skipper, too. Fair winds and sunsets until we come again. Shelagh & Billy Starr
