This has to be the most memorable vacation I did in the Caribbeans. We stayed around Grenada for about 2 weeks. The weather was great. The beaches, spectacular. This is certainly a very private and romantic setting and I would highly recommend for any couple to experience it. The hosts will accommodate your needs day by day. If you just feel like sitting on an uncrowded beach while sipping on cocktails and disconnect fromr everyday fast pace life, you can do that. There is also fabulous Grande Anse beach with has a resort in case you feel like seeing more action. The things that amazed me the most was the host’s knowledge of the area. With their expertise of local hot spots and culture, we were able to taste very authentic foods. We had a couple field trips which included going snorkeling to a very impressive coral reef, a day trip on buss to visit Grenada, organised with other people from boats in the bay, as well as many small adventures to see, feel and taste local food and life. Rachel and Arthur are so welcoming and have managed to establish very good connections with many people living in the area making it possible for them to advise and direct their guests in a safe and responsible way about the trip. All the time I was with them, I felt very safe and it was impressive how many people they know. I will definitely go back for another trip in the future as there is so many other magical places I am sure they can show me.
My trip on Rachel and Art's boat is memorable. I flew down to St. George, Grenada with my girlfriend for a week. They came to pick us up at the airport. Right off the bat, their welcome was warm and genuine. We then took a cab they had reserved that drove us to their little "taxi" boat, a small dinghy. And that was the start to a fantastic week.
Once on the yatch, they made sure we were comfortably lodged. Their boat is fully equipped. But the boat itselft is of little importance, in my opinion, compared to the experience you're gonna have with them. Just as we were unpacking our belongings, a local fisherman came by boat to offer us a freshly caught tuna that we cooked on the BBQ the same night! The following days were wonderful as we went to spend some time on the beach, we visited the city of St. George, we also did some snorkeling and so many other things. What struck me the most is the genuine relationships that Rachel and Art have with the locals. From the fisherman that came the first day to the people at the local markets where we bought some Mahi Mahi to the chair guy on the beach that Art called in the morning to reserve our seats for the day, our experience was that much more enjoyable because we didn't have to "figure things out".
Our privacy and intimacy was also very much respected. They understood very well that a romantic getaway includes some time alone on the front deck, spying on the stars at night just dwelling in the moment.
Thank you so much, Rachel & Art, for this wonderful time! We miss you!
We had such a good trip with captain Art and Rachel. We went around St Vincent and Grenadines and discovered beautiful spots! The boat was great, the food was excellent and our hosts made our trip in the top ones we did!! I am looking forward to get back, maybe visiting Martinique or Guadeloupe, or anywhere around there, where you are going!!
We had the absolute privilege of spending several days with Art and Rachel aboard their beautiful boat. While I was a bit nervous, all was levied due to their warm, personable and welcoming ways. The food and drinks were amazing and the boat was incredible but the best part was exploring islands where Art and Rachel have genuine relationships with the locals. We met up with them in St. Vincent and travelled the Grenadines. Every request was filled simply and enthusiastically. My husband and I value our privacy and it was easily given. A perfect balance of a romantic getaway and a fun time meeting new and generous people. Accommodations were wonderful and had all that we needed. The cost was a reasonable price - we got more out of this vacation than any resort we've been too! If you haven't done it, do a trip like this!! We will be booking again sooner than later! We are really missing Art's Rum Punch and Rachel's Bread Fruit!
