“We would love to have a boat like Dream Lover & liveaboard!”
Reviewed 19 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the Dream Lover. Jon & I would love to have our own sail boat one day and possibly live aboard. We got so many ideas and excellent information about sailing and taking care of a sailboat from Jonathan who has a wealth of information. We would be back again to ask more questions and hear more sea stories. Kay's gourmet breakfast is wonderful and the beach is only a block away within a short walk to restaurants with local catch. John & Julie

“Lifetime time experience!”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were tired of regular hotels and even B&B experiences so decided to do something super different. Had an open mind about the trip and treated it as an adventure.
And we were not disappointed! Just the overall experience of being on a boat was very romantic and relaxing. We stayed for 3 nights and each night slept fantastic. The bed was very comfortable, the sheets wonderful and the pillows were awesome. I always bring my own pillow to any hotels but this time it stayed in the car!
Breakfasts were a culinary art every single morning and no set dining time worked great for us as we love to workout before the breakfast walking for miles at the beach. Then after breakfast best time ever... do NOTHING.... just chill in the cockpit under the shade, fall asleep or even watch a dolphin swim by.

I would totally recommend this experience as long as you are looking for a different & romantic and not Ritz Carlton kind of accommodations.
We would definitely go back

“Felt Like Staying with Family”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our stay was even better than we anticipated - it felt like we were staying with family. Dream Lover is not only beautiful and intriguing, but it's obvious that it's full of love and happiness. Kudos for doing what you love. Kay and Jonathan were so kind to Amanda and me, and the accomodations were perfect. The breakfasts were so delicious and the truly good coffee spoiled me. My Mr. Coffee will be such a letdown when I return home. We hope to visit again soon. Erika & Amanda
