“Spending the night on the ocean”
Reviewed 12 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We had such a wonderful night aboard the Dream Lover. What a beautiful boat, and Kay & Jonathan are awesome hosts. Lovely conversation, and an experience of a lifetime spending the night on the ocean. We want to thank Kay & Jonathan for opening up their home to us. We hope to be back soon for a longer stay. Stephanie & Andrew

“What a fun adventure of living on a "sailboat!"”
Reviewed 10 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

What a wonderful experience we have had on the boat with Kay, Jonathan, & Skipper! The weather was so lovely for the first day and a half & the last twelve hours were all part of the fun adventure of living on a "sailboat!" Lightning strobbed through the cabin windows at 3:30 a.m. accompanied by the staccato of thunder & the lapping of waves against the gunnels. Fun! We enjoyed watching the pelicans, terns, and ospreys fishing around the bridge and pier. Kay cooked delicious breakfasts, and Jonathan was a charming "busboy". Such fun to savor a snippet of life aboard ship. Kathy & Joanne

“A Wonderful Anniversary Experience!”
Reviewed 10 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

person found this review helpful

It was such a wonderful anniversary experience! The weather is beautiful and experiencing the island from waterside gave us a new and unique perspective. We loved the food and the accommodations as well as getting to know our hosts and Skipper, too, and getting a peak at the live-aboard life both on Dream Lover and the dinghy - Bad Dog! Jim & Patsy

“A Great Time on the Dream Lover!”
Reviewed 7 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

What a great time on the Dream Lover! So close to the ocean and beautiful sunset! The food was good; the conversation was great; and the opportunity to fall asleep while being rocked gently by the lapping water! The dog therapy (Skipper) was an extra bonus! Such a wonderful experience! Debbie & Michael

“A Birthday Surprise for Jim”
Reviewed 30 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This adventure was a nice way to surprise Jim on his birthday. We enjoyed being lulled to sleep by the gentle waves. The breakfast was fabulous! The blueberry dessert was exceptional. I would love to have this recipe. Lois
