Captain Jenn & Chef Abrye (Bree) have each spent years running yacht charters all around the world from Southeast Asia to the Mediterranean. Now that they´ve joined forces together, they´re thrilled to welcome you aboard their new floating home in the Caribbean, Barefeet Retreat!

Jenn, a Texas native, has been sailing and instructing others on the sea since ‘09 when she taught dinghy & keelboat sailing at California State University, Long Beach. She has a strong passion for the ocean and fell in love with diving right here in the Virgin Islands. She took a brief hiatus from sailing on the water, to go below it working as a dive instructor. As Barefeet Retreat´s Captain & Dive Instructor, Jenn is thrilled to share her fascination of the sea with guests, always offering the most incredible views, both above and below the waterline.

Bree, our Florida gal, has a lifetime of passionate hosting experience and has always been a natural in the kitchen. After 9 years working in advertising strategy, Bree pivoted from her NYC desk job in ´17 & found new bliss working as a chef on the sea. She´s spent the last 4 years hosting charters at sea, programming wellness retreats on land, and sharing her skills as a host instructor for Quarterdeck´s host & skipper academy in Croatia. Entertaining is Bree´s forte and she finds it such a privilege to nourish her guests with mindfully curated meal plans using only the freshest and most wholesome ingredients.

Together, Jenn & Bree foster an incredible sense of hospitality and adventure on their charters. From the moment you step onto the yacht, you´re greeted with warmth and positivity. In addition to being partners in business, Jenn and Abrye are dear friends and a truly outstanding team. Clients have commented that they´re both an ideal mix of professional competence and outgoing fun. Jenn´s effortless humor paired with Bree´s natural maternal instinct will ensure that you´re smiling and satiated through the full duration of your yacht holiday.

Barefeet Retreat Guest Reviews

2021

´Jen and Bree were spectacular. 11 out of ten in every category. We changed our vacation plans for a trip later in the year just to join them in Barefeet Retreat again!´

2021

´All of it, attention to detail and understanding each of the members of our party. Local knowledge and the ability of Jenn and Bree to become a part of our vacation. Meals were over-the-top excellent, sailing, hiking, diving could not have been better. We will do this again!´

2021

´You have arrived, do yourself a favor and stop searching now, you will not find a better combination of craft and crew than this. Sailing aboard Barefeet Retreat with Captain Jenn & Chef Abrye is as good as it gets. We truly cannot think of a single thing that we would have changed during the entire week we spent. This newer yacht is very roomy, has all the comforts of home, and plenty of covered space for all to enjoy. Jenn & Abrye are intelligent, skilled, and kind, both with great sense´s of humor and delightful wit. What ever your taste buds desire, Chef Abrye can make it happen, every meal was fantastic and full of flavor. I think this lady is the next big thing just waiting to be discovered, so amazingly creative. Captain Jenn is a divemaster, accomplished sailor, knowledgeable hiker, and a confident leader. You just know that you are in good hands with Jenn at the helm. So finish up your To Do List, pack lightly, and get ready to worry about nothing at all, and have one of the most wonderful weeks of your life.´

2021

Jen and Bree were amazing. Went above and beyond and made our experience unforgettable. I cried when we got on the boat because our welcome spread was beautiful and I cried when we left, because I didn’t want to leave! We are ready to book again!´

2021

´We have no feedback on how to make the experience more positive - it was perfection!!! As first time charter yacht guests, we were blown away by the crew, food, itinerary, activities and boat! From the bubbles when we boarded the yacht to the send off cocktails when we departed, it was truly incredible! We have already put in holds on the Barefeet Retreat for a future booking!´

2021

´What a Fantastic week we had with Mary Poppins (Bree) and Wonder Woman(Jenn)! They made all our adventures come true! We had a group of 8 with 6 divers and they made us extremely comfortable, paying attention to every detail possible. Food was out of this world and the sailing very fun. You will be so happy you picked these two, Troy, Susan, Ron, Debby,Ken,Kim,Dennis and Caroline.´

2021

´Bree and Jen are like the dynamic duo. Their personalities and dedication to a great charter, I am imagine will be hard to find again (let alone two people who will put up with Dad jokes for a week). The food was amazing and Bree got it right every meal. Jen was not only an awesome captain, but great Scuba instructor as well. From the moment we stepped on the Yacht, the two of them really made us feel at home, comfortable, relaxed and in a mind set to have a great time. We only hope to bring our children back with us next time. p.s They found us front row mat position for ´After Irma Band´......try that StubHub!

I have been on may catamarans charters and want to express how amazing these two ladies were, they went above and beyond to make our vacay an exceptional experience! Jenn and Bree were so awesome in every way and made this vacay one of the best ever!

March 2021

Our stay was beyond comfortable because Captain Jenn and Chef Bree exceeded all our expectations and truly brought our preferences to life! With children on board, we were amazed at the endless activities and constant attention that they provided to help us feel at home. Captain Jenn amazed us with her skill and knowledge, but also was warm and patient with our gang. And, Chef Bree is a ray of sunshine! She prepared five star meals for every seating and amazed us with daily cocktails of the day and delicious desserts! The crew duo serving Barefeet Retreat are so warm and caring that you’ll leave with 2 new family members! And, the boat was kept immaculate and stocked with water toys. We are ready to book again!

2020

Because of Bree, our yacht became a home, which is more than any of us every thought was possible in a short week. Per Bree´s request early on in the trip, I´ve wracked my brain to find some constructive feedback related to her efforts. I´ve come up short. Bree commands respect in everything she does and never waivered even for a single moment in her total commitment to our healthy, safety, and happiness. Bree´s level of poise is second to none, and warrants repeated recognition.

Simply amazing! Great cook, such a fun part of our group and a really kind of caring person. Bree was the best!

2020

Amazing, the dishes that she created for us were unbelievable. Catered to our likes, dislikes and food allergies every meal. Also her energy brought the group up each day.

Breezy was incredible, she kept us well fed the entire trip with amazing meals. Going into the trip I expected to have pb&j but was happily surprised by the delicious, inventive meals she came up with. I absolutely loved the risotto with Gorgonzola sauce she made and have already googled a recipe to make at home!

The food was some of the best I´ve ever had. So amazing and great company!

2020

BREEZY!! Couldn´t imagine this trip without her. Her energy and incredible restaurant quality meals continued to leave us picking our jaws off the floor. Food outstanding every time. She also saved my life!

2020

Breezy was the absolute best. Her food/snacks/meals were perfect. She is truly skilled and maintained an awesome attitude in all aspects of the trip.

2020

Jenn was nothing short of absolutely fantastic and that´s honestly an understatement. She kept our crew in check and took care of us so well, and was so so so fun to be around. Loved seeing her hardworking, smiling face every morning ready to rock the day out. SHE´S THE BEST!

2020

Jenn was a phenomenal skipper, and was a big part of why we booked the route we did and why we requested her. She provided amazing recommendations, remained professional at all times, but was ready to have fun. If I could give her an 11, I would. 100% chance we´ll end up sailing again with Jenn as our skipper.
