We have sailed on 7 charters in the BVI's and although we had great experiences on other boats, this sail was our favorite due to the crew and boat. Mario and Karine were professional, yet, made you feel like you knew them forever. The boat was pristine, fluffy towels, comfortable seating area in front and in upper captain's area. The staterooms were well configured (and mattresses/sheets top of the line) 

Food: We had one picky eater in our group, and since she was given advance notice, Karine accommodated her meals flawlessly and without having to be reminded. Speaking of meals.....yum, yum, yum! Karine knows her way around the galley and had all our bellies well saturated after each meal. Crazy good! 

Mario's knowledge of the area and sailing etiquettes kept my interested husband entertained for hours. The flow on board was complete zen, just like we had requested.

Kudos to Mario and Karine-we miss them already!

When I was trying to figure it out what to do for my 50th birthday, never did I dream it would turn out to be so magical & special.Planning it for 9 months with little understanding of the BVI & catamaran . There would have been no way imagine what a special trip & birthday it could be. Once we arrived , we were greeted by sweet Karine and charming Mario, our trip finally began to untold& I began to relax & enjoy. Karine did everything to make our trip fabulous, special & her attention to every detail was just AMAZING. Her skill in the kitchen stole the show- no need to go anywhere else but "her table". Her kindness, trough fulness & generous desire to our trip so unique & my birthday unforgettful is soooo appreciated. I will never forget my 50 Th birthday!Mario, the master boat man always there to take care of me safely, got us to every beautiful location, made all our stops as different island seemless and was ready at a moment to put a SUP out, make sure that our wine glass were filled, music right and every detail attended to...an absolute delight to share this trip with.Thank you from the bottom of my hearts, Karine and Mario this one of my favorite vacation ever....The Evers Family....Xxx

The BVI are beautiful and provided the perfect setting to our vacation. We would not hesitate to return on Playtime as long as Karine & Mario were with us. Each of us received special attention and were catered to 24/7. Sleeping on the top deck, dancing on the back deck, tubing behind the T/T, paddle boarding were just a few of the great things we did. We felt at home the entire week, thanks to Karine & Mario.Karine and Mario are fantastic hosts and can prepare gourmet meals everyday.Cheers to our new Canadian friends, we love you guys...From your Tampa Bay based Canadian,Larry, Maureen,Ashley, Kyle
