Losing complete awareness of time, I have felt pure freedom and for a brief moment I have been ´one with the sea´.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Let´s sail away again very soon.
Love.

Carlos and Maribel,
What a perfect week we have had on the ALIZE! It was so worth the long wait because of Covid! We are so thankful that we could join you for the third time! It gave us such comfort for our weary souls. And a trip with you has always been about comfort! The most delicious and beautifully presented meals, the great moorings, awesome snorkeling, and the laughter, made for the most joyful experience! We are so appreciative for all the heart and soul that you put into making it so!!
Much love- Until next time,
Anne.
Carlos and Maribel,
Words cannot express how much this trip meant to all of us. It was a long two years wait! I thought it was never going to happen!
Y´all are the most wonderful Chef and Captain team and most importantly, wonderful people. The BVI are beautiful , but the trip would not be the same without both of you onboard!
Everything was absolutely the best. I hope all your future cruises are great, but remember: we are the best!

Carlos and Maribel,

We feel so fortunate to not only have sailed the BVI , but to do it on ALIZE, profited by your experience and hospitality! We greatly appreciate your experience in offering charters for years prior to our arrival. The things we had planned in our heads did not compare to your suggestions. Plus, as a worry-wart, Becky was never nervous for one second, knowing we were in great hands.
The food...Oh the food! Maribel, you spoiled us with meals we have never seen, much less tasted. They not only were delicious, but beautiful also. We were delighted to have this as a culinary vacation.!
Thank you for opening your home to us . We are so grateful.
May calm seas, blue skies and favorable winds define your remaining years.

It´s hard to believe it took us ten years to experience again the the best vacation of our lives. Thank you for making us feel so cared for. Your attention to detail is unsurpassed! We were blown away by the beautiful anchorages, gourmet meals and amazing company. It is obvious that you both love what you do and pour your hearts and souls into it. we are forever changed by our time spent with you and look forward to seeing you again. Hopefully there will be a time when you can be our guests in Punta Gorda!
Much love and thanks,

Carlos and Maribel,
You both will always hold a very special place in my heart. Ten years later, and this trip has still held up to all my expectations and more. This trip would not be nearly as amazing as it is without you two. A huge goal of mine is to come on this trip a third time with my kids. I´m so sad that this week is already over, but I´ve made memories to last me a lifetime.
Love you both with my whole heart.

Carlos and Maribel,
Wow... what an amazing vacation! Thank you for welcoming us into your beautiful home and for coordinating such an incredible experience for us. From sailing to snorkeling, from each location to every extraordinary meal, we had the best time. Scott loved being on a boat again and paddle-boarding for the first time. For us sisters, it was great to simply be together here, especially sitting up top with both of you while we sailed. If anyone needs lessons about using the dinghy ladder, Claire is always available.
Thank you again for everything- ha sido una semana inolvidable! We hope we can sail again with you soon.

Dear Carlos and Maribel,
For so many reasons over this past year we thought this trip was not going to happen. We are so thrilled that it did!! We loved being onboard ALIZE. Your insights on the islands, activities and itinerary were invaluable. Our time aboard ALIZE will be remembered for the evening sunsets & breezes, ´Caribbean showers´, great conversation, a lot of fun activities, wonderful cocktails and THE FOOD!! We have always felt that our travel has given us many gifts... The people we meet along the way are definitely one of those gifts- we will remember fondly our time spent with both of you! We hope to join you again on a future sailing adventure.

Carlos is the most patient, calm and kind person. He showed the kids how to use all the water toys on board and they had so much fun!
Maribel is the best chef you can have on a charter. She treated us to some exquisite deserts, succulent steaks and the freshest salads. The bar on cooking was set very high.
Thank you so much Carlos and Maribel for an awesome week on board the ALIZE! We hope to be back soon!

Late March guests aboard Alizè said:

Dear Maribel and Carlos,

As you found out, even though Carlos suspected it, I was hesitant to come to the BVI since I had never done anything like this before and was nervous about how I would fit in. Your gracious hospitality and reassuring calmness put me right at ease and truly this was a wonderful experience that I would like to do again. Probably my most fond memory will be getting to know the both of you, hearing of some of your grand adventures and traveling insights.
Thank you for making our ´mid-pandemic´ charter the best it could be. The service was top notch, the food was five stars and outstanding and the company most enjoyable.
Con toda mi gratitud y deseo por las mejores bendiciones de Dios!!

Dear Maribel and Carlos,

What a marvelous trip this has been! I really had no idea what to expect. This trip was planned as a celebration of my 50th birthday and I wasn´t in the loop, so to speak. Add to that all the ever changing Covid regulations and I was not enthusiastic.
That being said...
Once I was on the ALIZE, in your capable hands, I was at HOME. The anxiety and apprehension...GONE!!
I was completely relaxed and my attitude shifted immediately. Thank you both so much for allowing us to share your home for these eight days. I was not disappointed about not being able to go on land due to the late Covid test results. I really am happiest when I´m with my sister. She´s my best friend. So I would have to say the whole trip was a SUCCESS!! We loved your cooking, Maribel. Every meal was a triumph! Carlos, your stories: so fabulous. Thank you for a safe and memorable experience. The BVI is beautiful but a trip with you two, even on swamp, would be worth it! I hope this is the first of several trips together.

Dear Maribel and Carlos,

This has been the most amazing, relaxing, beautiful vacation Winslow and I have done together. This was our first sailing trip and it is everything and way more than what we hoped for. You two are such precious, loving and wise people and I feel like I have a new favorite aunt and uncle in my life.
I have felt the happiest I have been in a long time and you two have such positive bright uplifting energy it´s so contagious and so healing to be around. Thank you for following your dream and sharing your passion for living in the water, in the flow, with hearts open engaging the moment with us. I will be thinking about the gentle rocking of the ocean in my meditation and the joy and peace of this trip for so long. Highlights include Maribel´s amazing food! Dancing on the bow, but most of all, feeling so safe and welcome, and free to be myself in a way I rarely feel with strangers. You two feel like family to me now.
Love you both.

The ultimate family vacation! We never were board! The fishing, watersports, the sailing, the relaxation, the Caribbean Showers and the amazing food were a few of our highlights !
