Aura Guest Reviews


Jos, Julia & Allie,

What an amazing week with an amazing crew! This is our second trip with you and we knew to expect no less. You have given us memories that we will cherish for a lifetime!

We have been blessed to take such a trip, blessed with people that have taken such wonderful care of us, and blessed with new friends.

We truly appreciate the tremendous amount of planning and hard work you all put into making our week so easy and incredibly relaxing. Those of us who sail have ultimate respect for your skill and knowledge.

It is sad to say goodbye, but we hope this is not our last sail with you! Stay well!

Jim & Gayle, Tracy & Claudia, Ron & Melody


Dear Jos, Julia & Kim,
Thank you a million for an amazing week onboard (and off-road!), we loved every minute and are so grateful for the incredible energy and fun you brought us every day. We really do adore you all and hope that you´ll come see us in Texas.

Until the next time... a GALAXY of love and thanks!


Best vacation EVER!!! 10 STARS!! Truly, this vacation has topped all of our adventures - and we will be back!
I have been to the BVI twice before on a self-crewed yacht, and while the adventure was fun, it paled in comparison to this crewed yacht with Jos, Julia, and Kim.
This is the most professional, most experienced crew that anyone could want for a vacation, and it was worth every penny.

The Yacht: What can one say to a brand new 65-foot yacht that is fitted with every option for a luxurious space. The owner spared no expense, it is truly gorgeous, the perfect vessel for this amazing trip.

The Crew: This crew was simply amazing. The three of them were so compatible and professional that you could feel the seamless movement of their service floating about.
Not having experienced a crew prior, I wasn’t sure what to expect and I was a little concerned about being able to properly relax with three more personalities onboard. But now I feel I couldn’t have achieved that level of true relaxation without them. I believe because of their experience and professionalism they absolutely knew how to tailor this trip to our needs. They instantly felt like family or a good friend that you’ve known for years. So unexpected and perfect!

The Adventure: Having an experienced crew to tour the BVI is truly the best way to go. Captain Jos and Julia planned an amazing tour incorporating our preferences and enhanced it with locations and special sightings that we didn’t know existed. The galaxy of starfish, the hidden secrets of the BVI that a self-crewed yacht would never know, it was a whole new experience.

Jos: Not only was Jos a seasoned Captain, but he also had endless energy to keep our trip fun for our entire family. I was so happy that he spent time with my 16-year-old son to teach him about sailing, fishing, foil surfing, scuba diving, halyard swinging, cliff jumping and sea-bobbing. Jos planned each day from morning until night while tirelessly entertaining my high energy teen. It was such a nice break for me as a widow and single parent. It warmed my heart to see my son learning and enjoying himself every day. It’s an experience he will never forget!

Julia: First mate and stewardess, so professional and nurturing. Her anticipation and timing of our needs were perfectly endless. She would have cool lemongrass scented cloths and ice water ready after each excursion and anticipated our need for a refilled drink or dry towel throughout our trip. Julia made us feel like we’d been friends forever. I know they have a big job running this yacht, but if there was ever any stress for her or any of the crew, you would never know it. Julia and Jos, so perfectly matched, worked seamlessly together. Such a joy to see.

Kim: All I can say is Food, Food, Food! Yum, Yum, Yum! She is the most amazing Chef! I just wanted to take her home with me. I ate entirely too much because my taste buds were so happy every day! You will not go hungry, and she will cater to your every desire. Thank you Kim! And thank you for spending endless hours with my daughter letting her join you in some of the meal preparations. You were a blessing!

This trip was the perfect pace and perfect escape from reality to relax and rejuvenate. Having someone else in charge, planning and taking the reins was so refreshing, especially for a single parent who is always in the driver’s seat. It was so nice to be a passenger and enjoy the ride. ♡♡♡

ELLIS - MAY 2023

Jos, Julia and Kim. Our second trip with you and the experience was just as amazing as last time. All of you always made sure that everything was perfect. The Birthday dinners were as unforgettable as Kim dancing round the kitchen. We are all looking forward to coming back!

Safe Sailing!


Julia, Kim and Jos,
You three are the boss,
You sailed us, fed us, kept us in drink,
Without you, we´d all be lost!

Seriously - you are wonderful humans to be around. You each made this time so special in every way. Thank you for the gift of relaxation. Anna

You three are MAGIC! Your presence, calm and ever-attentive care made this an easy and special time. You are all three amazing, thank you for every special little things it all added to an unforgettable trip. With hugs and gratitude. Marjorie

The trip and experience you all created for us was truly unbelievable and memorable. For a group who rarely unplug, you made this seamless and so meaningful. We felt so well taken care of. You three are masters of what you do and are creating incredible experiences for all of us. Thank you! Lisa & Dan

I laughed. I cried (from laughing so hard). I made memories I´ll never forget. Thank you so much for a fantastic week, we all had so much fun. It was really special to get to know you. Ryan

Jos, Julia and Mich,

Where do we even begin? I think we all collectively agree that this was the most amazing vacation ever! Your kindness and hospitality far exceeded our expectations - we were absolutely blown away by everything!

Julia´s each and every meal was a work of art - not only beautifully presented but totally delicious. Jos´s knowledge and expertise - not to mention his patience - was amazing! And we are all fighting over who gets to take Mich home with them. She is the sweetest person and the best bartender.

Goodbye is hard to say - we never want to leave this little slice of heaven.... Until next time!

FIRST CLASS BOAT - WORLD CLASS CREW!! Beyond grateful for this experience and equally grateful for our new friendship.

Dear Jos, Julia and Mich.

In this crazy world of ours with virus variants and protocols changing daily - we truly did not think this BVI vacation was going to happen! It was a CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!

We arrived worn and weary and were taken care of immediately. Julia, Jos and Mich - you are experts at what you do! It´s not easy, but it looked effortless!

Cocktails, meals, tucked away anchorages, guided scuba and snorkelling, and most importantly, making us feel comfortable and relaxed on Foxy Lady. It was a special family vacation we will cherish forever with our kids.

Clean plates, full hearts and eager eyes! We can´t wait to meet up again!

Previous Guests with Jos & Julia, Summer 2022, Foxy Lady

We cannot thank you enough for this beautiful week on this gorgeous sailing ´home´. Foxy Lady has so far exceeded our expectation that it´s difficult to list all the magic we´ve experienced!

We cannot thank you enough for your suggestions and creating the perfect itinerary and captaining us into beautiful bays and cays and even more beautiful sunsets every single evening!

The fabulous, delicious, beautiful meals will be remembered and missed so much. Absolutely 5*! You are an amazing and gifted chef and we were so lucky to have you.

Mich - it´s been a joy to be a recipient of your beautiful and delicious cocktails and your delightful and joyful personality.

Our time on Foxy Lady has been a dream come true and the three of you have a left a big, warm print on our hearts.

Jos & Julia,

THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the most amazing week aboard Foxy Lady! We loved every minute and will never forget our time with you. You are so much fun, and helpful, and we will miss so many things - amazing food, non-stop watersports, laughter, trivia, getting our asses kicked at trivia by Julia, and everything in between. You are the BEST!
