Entheos Guest Reviews

JJ and Friends

We appreciate you taking us for round two. Shannon had a fantastic birthday. Meeting foxy was an amazing surprise! Dinner, drinks and dominoes was a lovely activity to cap each fun filled day. We floated with Patricia and Deloris, sang songs in White bay and ran away from a huge Baracuda. Thank you for all the memories.


Thank you so much for the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation!. Memories to last forever. We enjoyed every moment. The food was delicious and the evening drinks and stories were all wonderful. Words cant express our gratitude - you put in a lot of planning to make sure every aspect was taken care of. The history of the islands and the reef viewing were favorites, our questions regarding sailing were invited and answered with years of experience.

Joe and Deb

Additional comments:-

The crew was most definitely friendly and accommodating from the very beginning to the very end. The yacht was very clean and comfortable. Everything is well cared for. The boat was well ventilated, so glad it did not have air-conditioning as there is enough natural cooling from the water and winds. Every meal was delicious. The food was presented in a lovely manner which made the experience more delightful. We loved the area we sailed in - so beautiful! Bertie and Teresa are very gracious hosts and did everything to make sure the trip went well. The food and drinks were awesome! The evenings were filled with enjoyable conversation and sailing stories while watching for sea turtles or other wild life. We appreciate their watchful eye while we were snorkeling or paddle boarding to ensure our safety. They are very familiar and knowledgeable with the area which allows for a wide variety of activities. All in all, a truly memorable and relaxing vacation. The week passed too quickly! Definitely recommend Bertie and Teresa. We certainly will book another trip with them.


This ends our beautiful time together. I will never forget the blue and turquoise water, the pink sunsets and your hospitality. You two are genuine spiritual gifts. May the wind always be at your back, your guests appreciate your cooking and stories, may your beer always be cold and may you never run out of ice.

Love - Kathie

Thank you so much for providing us with the trip of a lifetime. All future vacations will be compared to this one and it will be hard to live up to the amazing experience we had on Entheos. Bertie and Teresa you are both professionals and a joy to be around. The food that came out the kitchen was incredible every time!. Also the best Painkiller in BVI! Thanks again for welcoming us onto your boat.

The crew was extremely friendly, the yacht was comfortable, clean and well ventilated. The food was well presented and what Teresa can cook on this boat is amazing. We liked the area we sailed in. This trip was like no other. These two people really enjoy what they are doing and are very hospitable it was like hanging out with family. We left our trip in there hands and couldn´t have asked for more from the time we boarded they made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Bertie always made sure we sailed in good conditions and watched out for us.

Dear Bertie and Teresa

So many words and ways to express thanks, but they all seem inadequate!!. We have all been looking forward so much to our first family vacation together in four years. So, our hopes and expectations were very high - and the reason we chose to finally do what we have been telling Julia and Joanne about for years - sailing in the beautiful Caribbean!!You made our trip and experiences and the time together so much more than we had ever dreamed it would ever be! The list of wonderful memories we will take home with us is endless and precious. Teresa, i think we may all be taking home a few extra pounds too!. You are an exceptional and inspirational chef!!. You both have a special calling and gift, to put your guests in a wonderful holiday mind set. Just lovely and pampered the whole week. Thanks and many thanks again for a happy, happy family time together.

Fondly - Shelly, Ray, Joanne and Julia

Dearest Bertie and Teresa

What a wonderful few days it has been - to few in fact!. Its been a delightful surprise to find what feels like 2 old friends down here in the BVI. Thank you for welcoming us with open arms aboard your fabulous boat. Teresa, the food you managed to make three times a day rivals 5 star restaurant anywhere!. Bertie, your explanation of all the things to see and your knowledge of just the right thing to do is spot on - thank you! The stories told and memories shared have been so much fun. Awesome trip with awesome people. We will be back!

Boris Family

Dear Bertie and Teresa

Words can not describe the moments and memories we had on this trip. It has been an experience that all families should have. We were able to bond with our kids again and enjoy family time which has sometimes been forgotten in our modern lives. Every island we stopped at was fantastic with breath taking views and delicious water. Snorkeling suddenly became a favorite after Bertie recommended the noodle. Not to forget the fun nights playing Mexican Train which we will start implementing a game at least once a week with the kids. The food was exquisite and the kids were so impressed that Teresa knew everything they liked. Well! unfortunately it came to an end it will be an unforgettable memory for all of us. Thank you once again Bertie and Teresa

Ryan and Vanessa Hall - 10th Wedding Anniversary

From the start of our trip on Entheos to the last day, we had the vacation of a lifetime. Teresa and Bertie are some of the nicest, hardest working people you will ever meet. Entheos is kept extremely up-to-date and very clean. It’s great that it has a separate living area for guests and a private head with dedicated shower. We felt like we had our own space which was unexpected and really appreciated.

Captain Bertie is highly skilled and made us feel extra safe as we made our way around the BVIs. He keeps an eye on the weather and other conditions and makes recommendations to make sure you get the most out of your time on their boat. For our trip, it was extremely windy so we had to change course a bit but Bertie make sure we were always safe and having a great time.

Teresa’s skills in the kitchen are top-notch. Every meal she served was delicious and fairly healthy (per our special request for healthier options). She will serve meals at your schedule, so it’s great to have that flexibility as we are late risers. And, again, unlike other charter options, Teresa is also flexible to your dietary needs as long as you communicate them to her prior to the trip. She is also a fantastic bartender, serving up frozen margaritas, painkillers, rum punch and champagne!

We got to visit several great islands during our 5 days on Entheos with activities including snorkeling, swimming, visiting cool bars/restaurants, island sight seeing, etc. We did not choose to do any diving, but they offer that as an extra cost option. Basically, all we had to do was sit back and relax, and our hosts took care of seeing to it that we were having an amazing time.

We look forward to sailing again on the Entheos. What was a “trip” turned into a magical experience and hopefully lifelong friends in Teresa and Bertie.

Soderberg Family RETURN!!!!

Dear Bertie and Teresa

Well, we could never have hoped that our second charter with you guys would rival the last but it did!!. You went out of your way to show us new and gorgeous spots and planned another great itinerary. We really felt like friends back to see friends rather than just a charter. You are such a special couple, so much fun but also so good at what you do. Teresa, you would win any boat cooking challenge. The food was awesome and Bertie we felt 100% safe all the time with you skippering and guidance. Thank you for hosting us and all the hard work. We are looking forward to charter number three.

All the best

Bela Family

Dear Barend with Teresa

First time we did something like this, we came of course with expectations. Now after our holiday we can say it was in ALL WAYS better than we thought it would be. Your offer/package is awesome. The places you took us to, the information you shared with us, the food you prepared for us - really great!!. We enjoyed a relaxed family vacation witch was out of this world!! Thank you both so much for everything.

Hooley Family

Can´t quite believe our week has come to an end already. We have been so well looked after, I am not sure how I will Manage back home. What a truely amazing experience this has been. Hopefully not our last on the beautiful boat, thank you so much guys - Ann

Thank you so much! this trip has been amazing, from the locations and activities to the food. My favourite parts were probably the baths and the paddle boarding and of course the food and the domino games. Thank you so much - Sophie

Superb week!! Great scenery, great weather, huge variety of activities, excellent food and above all, great company - perhaps a little to much beer!!!! - As Arnold said - ´We´ll be back´ - Roland

Yacht: ENTHEOS with Bertie & Theresa Chapman
Charter Dates: 03/11/2018 12:00pm to 03/17/2018 12:00pm

Overall Rating: 5
5 being the highest 0 being the lowest

We hope your charter lived up to your expectations. We would love to know some of your impressions about your yachting vacation. Please answer the following questions and add any comments you may have.

1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating?

Bertie and Teresa were fantastic!!! We changed our minds twice and wanted to stay on the yacht instead of going ashore for dinner. They completely understood and adapted to our request. We ended up having a fantastic ´happy hour´ watching the sunset, followed by a glamourous dinner under the stars. It was great how they could happily revise plans to what we felt like doing. They are two of the most kind and friendly people we have ever met. We told lots of jokes and stories. I cannot recall when we ever laughed so hard in one week. They always acted highly professional in everything they did. Bertie knows ´seamanship´ and is polite not only to his guests, but to other yachts as well.

2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean?

My husband and I were very comfortable in our cabin. The yacht was always impeccably clean. We even slept outside under the stars twice and watched the shooting stars and activity around on other yachts. It was an incredible experience. Bertie and Teresa also timed the cleaning so that they were ´stealth´. Whenever we came back from a snorkel we knew they had been working hard to keep it magically pristine!

3. Was the yacht well ventilated?

We kept the portholes of our quarters open all of the time and had the fresh sea air always moving throughout. We were cool and comfortable. This made for wonderful sleep every night and we would highly recommend the same. The fresh air and sound of the water just sings you to sleep.

4. Was the food good and well presented?

Teresa put her heart and soul into every meal. We have eaten at five star restaurants all over North America, and have never eaten such delicious meals presented so beautifully. There was always plenty to eat at the meals and food to snack on imbetween. We enjoyed coming back from excursions to find a nice cold drink just appear! Teresa studied our food preferences, researched creative menus and presented delicious food. The food was absolutely first class.

5. Did you like the area you sailed?

This Captain really knows what he is doing. He made sure to select routing so that we had calm seas and very quiet and calm moorings and anchorages. Bertie´s experience in the area provided perfect timing for the entire week. They showed us everything that we wanted to see and more. Our expectations were high, and Bertie and Teresa exceeded them.

6. Could we at Virgin Island Sailing, Ltd. have helped you further in any way?

Virgin Island Sailing was fantastic. Thank you for arranging the revision in the dates which we needed.

7. May we post this review on our website?

8. Additional comments on your charter?

We highly recommend Entheos with Bertie and Teresa. They left us alone whenever we wanted, and joined us whenever we asked. Our day started with a morning swim, relaxing with coffee and conversation, and a fantastic breakfast. Then we explored new spots or moved to a new location. The paddle boarding was so much fun. They were great with selecting snorkeling spots fitting to our ability, and very beautiful fish. For those wanting adventure and hiking, they know where to go. Their flexibility to adapt to our changing our minds was fantastic. Teresa has many special touches and surprises that just make the week so much more of a ´one of a kind´ experience. We had the holiday of a lifetime and will never forget it. We left the week with two very good new friends and look forward to seeing them again.

´May you have clear skies above you and the wind behind your back, the promise of adventure in front of you. Smooth seas beneath you and true love at your side. May the Good Lord always hold you in the palm of his hand. God Bless you both!!´

With much Love - Dave and Rhoda

De Souza Family - All the way from Beautifull Brazil

Bertie and Teresa

We have been nurturing the dream of sailing in the Caribbean for years and you have been a major contributor for the fullfillment of this dream.

We thank Neptune for the graces he sent towards us. We had good weather good seas and even a private show Starred by 5 dolphins playing left and right the bow for our amusement. Why was Neptune so kind??, probably because you have done your part by having all details carefully prepared and the whole trip professionally executed. It was a pleasure to wake up and have a creative and delicious breakfast waiting for us and be supported by Teresa´s patience waiting for Arthur to finish. Lunch and Dinner were never the same and surprised us all the time. Even the black coffee was prepared to Brazillian perfection.

Entheos also did her part well, such a nice and new boat filled with the amenities and technology necessary to make our stay comfortable and safe, skippered by Captain Bertie who kept adjusting the course and the schedule always according to our best comfort and taking the most out of those beautiful Islands.

We came back home with memories of great times and fun as well as new friends

My the God´s be with you

We had the best father son time possible. We got a weeks worth of paddle boarding, sailing, snorkeling and great meals and times in only four days. The hospitality and friendship shown by you was first class. Thank you for a trip we will not forget. See you soon.

Bertie & Teresa were beyond amazing

1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating?
Yes! Couldn´t have asked for better service

2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean?
Very much so.

3. Was the yacht well ventilated?

4. Was the food good and well presented?
Blew away expectations. Was VERY impressed with every aspect of the food.

5. Did you like the area you sailed?
Yep, loved it

I could not have asked for a better experience. Bertie & Teresa were beyond amazing. They are natural hosts who genuinely went above & beyond over and over again to make sure that my girlfriend & I had an unforgettable vacation. A few things that I found particularly enjoyable: Food: The food was incredible. Perhaps my expectations were too low going in but I was routinely impressed with the quality (& quantity) of Teresa´s meals. Outstanding. Hospitality: Teresa & Bertie were the ultimate hosts. They did all the little things to make sure that we were enjoying ourselves. Two of my favorite were: 1) There was a welcome tendency for a delicious frosty drink to show up at just the right time every day, never even had to ask. 2) They took a TON of photos throughout the trip & gave them to us at the end. It was so nice to be able to just enjoy a trip and not worry about capturing it (but at the same time wanting the photos for the memories). Knowledge/Safety: Couldn´t have felt safer than with Bertie at the helm. He does a great job of encouraging adventure but making you aware of the surroundings. I could not possibly give them a strong recommendation. You will not regret picking Entheos for your trip!

Sean - Our family had a wonderful time!!!, Bertie and Teresa were fabulous. The sailing, tour guiding and food were professional quality. They are both super friendly. We really enjoyed their company.

Meals were one of the unexpected highlights of the trip, meals were ample, delicious and professionally presented, with Teresa handling everything and us just showing up to eat. They also prepared great mixed drinks in the evening.

We just want to reiterate that Bertie and Teresa were truly great hosts, knowledgeable, professional, friendly and fun. They felt like extended family members by the end of the week joining us in conversation, games etc.


Karin - Dear Bertie and Teresa, What can we say, this has been a true dream vacation. We can´t imagine a better way to have explored the BVI. You have been amazing hosts and we will fondly remember your warmth and sharing in our silly humor. Teresa, your cooking is fantastic! (I don´t know how you pull it off) the elaborate feasts!!!!.

Thank you, Thank you for the wonderful stay

We have just had a superb experience sailing the BVI on Entheos. My husband and I and our two kids aged 8 and 5 had high hopes for this holiday and they were exceeded on every level.

The beauty and serenity of the islands, the weather but most importantly our hosts made us feel so welcome. I was worried about how it would be with the kids but Bertie and Teresa couldn´t have been more accommodating. They tought my son how to play dominoes and to steer the boat. Teresa was so sweet with my daughter, bringing little craft activities and toys for her to enjoy during quiet time. We were never bored for a minute. We snorkeled, hiked, swam, beachcombed, paddle boarded, relaxed and star gazed. I have no idea how Teresa prepared the lovely meals she did and she kept the boat spotlessly clean. We are coming back next year!!!

Dear Bertie and Teresa

Wow!!! The only thing that surpasses the beauty of the BVI´s, is your genuine kindness and hospitality!

Entheos is so appropriately named with you all as Captain and 1st Mate!

Please, Please come visit us in Charleston anytime.

Love, Aris Christie, Lizzie and Pete

Happy and healthy 2017!

While my wife and I were preparing to sail across the Atlantic from to Cape Town we were delighted to be introduced to another couple who had already cruised across to the Caribbean. We subsequently found out that besides being sailors they were planning to charter their vessel out to interested clients. We were therefore thrilled when Theresa and Captain Bertie invited us to dinner on-board another yacht very similar to what they own and operate in the Caribbean. Upon arrival we were met with a classic pain killer cocktail served by the hosts on the outside cockpit area. All one can say is it was delicious , thirst quenching and if one had any pain it would be dispelled immediately. Accompanying the arrival drinks was a wonderful selection of snacks and home-made delights all of which were served by our hosts who made us feel like royalty. The dinner consisted of an oxtail and chorizo stew that had been prepared in a very energy saving manner using thermal insulation to store it overnight after initial partial cooking. This was served with a variety of fresh vegetables, potatoes and rice all of which had been prepared with a focus on flavour. Our desert was a deconstructed Eton mess type meringue with delicious berries. The home cooked nature of the meringue was deceiving as they were perfect despite all being prepared in the smallest of kitchens (galley). During the meal the guest were kept well watered with a robust selection local wines. After dinner drinks were served including a T & B special called chocolate cake again the content could be considered flammable but absolutely delicious. So all in all if you get the opportunity to sail with this lovely couple be prepared to enjoy the culinary delights emanating from the galley along with friendly and welcoming hosts. This is a must do holiday !!

We had the privilege of sampling some of Theresa Chapmans (Sailing Yacht Entheos) culinary offerings recently and also chatting to her about her menus, plans and inventions - they have designed a personal Entheos cocktail. Theresa presents a professional menu with a good variety of dishes. She also executes these dishes with care and finesse, the result being eye catching, delicious, wholesome food that makes you want more. Her desserts have to be one of her trademarks, my personal favorite being the ´Chocolate Frangelico Mousse. Producing meals of this caliber in the confines of a yacht galley is not exactly easy yet Theresa does a superb job. Well done guys and we wish you much success in your ventures´

Soderberg Family RETURN!!!!

Dear Bertie and Teresa. Well we would never have hoped that our second charter with you guys would rival the last but it sure did!!. You went out your way to show us new and gorgeous spots and planned another great itinerary. We really feel like family back to see family rather than just a charter. You are such a special couple, so much fun but also so good at what you do. Teresa - you would win any boat cooking challenge - the food was awesome and Bertie we once again felt 100% safe all the time with your skippering and guidance. Thank you for hosting us and all the hard work. We are looking forward to charter number three.
