We have quoted Don's letter in full. They chartered 'Antillean' in April, 2006
We just returned from a 5 day cruise in the BVI with the Antillean, captained by Jon Gould with Heidi Wheeler as first mate/cook. I'd like to tell you about our experience.
First off, your staff was most helpful, and responsive to all our requests and questions. Good Job!
The Antillean, a 50' Beneteau, is a beautiful boat, lovingly maintained in spotless condition. We traveled with our two adult children, and the fact that there are 3 available staterooms, each with ensuite head/ shower, was a definite plus.
Captain John Gould and first mate/cook Heidi Wheeler were everything we hoped for - friendly but not intrusive, always helpful and fun to travel with. They were extremely gracious, and happy to fulfill our slightest wishes. John's seamanship, sea stories, and knowledge of the islands, were a plus, topped only by Heidi's gourmet meals - truly some of the best food we've ever had on vacations. Mr. Smee's antics were an added attraction for us as well.
We had a wonderful vacation, and strongly recommend Antillean and her crew to one and all. Please convey our thanks to John & Heidi.
