Dear Karine & Mario,

Thank you so much for the most extraordinary week! We had the BEST TIME! It was such a special time for us, so memorable, so relaxing and so much fun!!!!!

Thank you so much for taking such incredible care of us. Karine and Mario, the food was AMAZING! Everything was so delicious, so thoughtfully and beautifully prepared. We felt so spoiled to be eating exactly what we wanted to be eating, exactly when we wanted to be eating it! No easy task!!

You were both so sweet, so kind to us and the girls. They loved they time with you and think the world of you. The dessert, the popcorn in bed :):)! You were so kind to them at every turn. We cannot wait to return. The girls are already planning...

The boat was BEAUTIFUL and we felt so lucky to be on it everyday!

Thank you again! We cant wait to see you again soon!!!!!

Love,

Kristina and Frank Loverro

Thank you so much! We have had the best time ever! Me and my family have decided this was the best vacation ever! We have had a fabulous time. I cant wait to come back again!

 Mid March, 2016, guests aboard Playtime said:
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!

Karine, as we sit with here with our freshly popped popcorn, we realize we wont be this spoiled & loved again...until we come back! Thank you so much for your smiles, warmth, you made this so special for us!

Skipper: 5/5

Comments Attention to detail first class. Sailed every day, from island to island, at the request of my husband. Mario even allowed our daughter to sail, steer, much to my horror, she is directionally challenged at the best of times! The part of the trip for Richard was being Mario's sailing help! Mario's knowledge of the islands, activities, flexibility to cater to our individuals needs, made this an unforgettable vacation. He is a master yachtsman, he is funny, smart, patient, a perfectionist about his boat and anything he does! There was nothing that was too hard, too annoying, too untimely, for Mario. We always felt safe and confident under his watchful eyes.

Rest of the crew: 5/5

Comments Karine is one of a kind! Fantastic hostess, first class chef, attention to detail in the cabins, the living areas and covered flybridge on Playtime. She planned, cooked and presented scrumptious meals which we can only describe as unmatched and unsurpassed. Cannot wait to sail with them again!

How would you qualify the yacht (comfort, features, general maintenance, etc) 5/5

Comments First class catamaran! In excellent condition, pristine!! Both Karine and Mario work tirelessly to maintain Playtime in top notch condition. They are perfectionists. We are not talking Aveeno products here, but Molton Brown! We had a fantastic holiday in an ultra luxury, beautiful, catamaran! This yacht is loaded with all the extras!

How would you qualify the itinerary 5/5

Comments Mario and Karine worked with us to accommodate our daily wishes and whims, whether it involved where we wanted to explore, sail, fish, snorkel, scuba, visit or swim. Some

days we left it up to Mario's expert advice, and loved whatever activity they planned for us! We covered every island we wanted to visit or see!

How would you qualify the sports and leisure activities/equipment on board 5/5

Comments Totally adequate and first class equipment and gear! We purposefully chose a boat without scuba equipment, as we knew Mario would accommodate destination scuba wants. Loved the new paddles boards and the two seater canoe. All the snorkel gear was in great shape! Perfectly adequate and fit all of our individual needs.

How would you qualify the food and drinks 5/5

Comments One word - PERFECT! Karine went to great lengths to accommodate our EVERY food and beverage request! We got MUCH MORE than we expected or could have imagined! We started a picture and food diary from day one which we shared on social media. The food and its presentation - five star! Loved Karine's hand made 5 course sushi dinner, which she kindly allowed Stephanie to help her with! We looked forward to Mario's Painkillers every day! We still miss Karine's food!

How would you qualify the service provided by the broker (Ritzy Charters) 5/5

Comments Timely and thorough communication throughout the process! Every question or concern addressed immediately. Gave us first class choices, delivered what was sold/promised! More than satisfactory experience.

How would you qualify the entire experience of your trip 5/5

Comments This was the most fantastic experience and holiday we have ever experienced, and we have traveled extensively as a family! We will stay in contact with Mario and Karine, we were in tears upon our goodbyes. Playtime, Mario and Karine, we will be back! Once you have experienced this first class catamaran, this fantastic crew, you will understand why Playtime accommodates only 6 guests! The commitment and level of service provided by Mario and Karine is such that they wouldn't dream of compromising their standards of excellence to accommodate more than 6 guests on any of their charters!!

 Guests onboard PlayTime January 15-24.16
Definitely Excellent, Absolutely Excellent...

 Guests onboard Playtime in January 3rd, 2016
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....

Mario & Karine....

What an unbelievable journey! Nothing could have prepared us for this experience!!

Karine, your cuisine, unmatched! There are no half measure with anything you prepare. It is apparent just how much you two love this beautiful, elegant catamaran, how passionate you are about what you do, the energy, dedication and joy you display toward your guests, the sailing, the sightseeing.

Loved watching Mario and Richard gabbing every morning about boat, sea ,fish, big boat , small boats, food, people , sailing....

We fee like we have gained two new family members!

We are so honored to have been lucky enough to enjoy one week on this 5 stars catamaran! To have experience the top 5 stars crew in the Caribbean. We will be back!!

All our Carolina love, you're always welcome in our home- cannot wait to see you guys again next years in Paradise...

 Guests aboard Play Time on August 1st-8th,2015
Dear Mario and Karine,

This week has been our first experience of a yacht charter so we were a little uncertain what to expect....

From the moment you greeted us at Rodney Bay marina you have made us all feel very welcome and comfortable.

We thank you for your enthusiasm, professionalism and for your patience with our 2 boys and their eating habits...

Karine, you have worked tirelessly providing fantastic and amazing meals and drinks all day, everyday, still finding time to clean the room and make the bed!

Mario, the great sailor, engineer, entertainer, DJ, magician, tender driver for tubbing and skiing ,although Keith and I caught all the fish!

Playtime is a fantastically well equipped yacht that you both are very proud to maintain and that is evident in the way she is presented at all times, whatever the weather.

We will definitely be seeing you aboard Playtime in the future.

Thank you so much with much love...

It is difficult to write in a sentence how much our family enjoyed the week on Playtime with Karine and Mario. We had a wonderful time, the food, the activities, the sailing, the boat, the time visiting with Karine & Mario together as a family. 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,
