Karma Guest Reviews

Nov 2022 USVI Charter

While the boat is beautiful, the magic of this trip was Mac and Jake! The memories made will feed our souls for years, the laughs will be the music in our dreams, and the music of the sea will be a soundtrack we will play on repeat.

There aren´t enough words to describe how amazing this week has been.
Thank you Jake and Mackenzie - AMAZING!

Thanks for the memories and birthday wishes!
Love our time with you guys.

Jake and Mackenzie Past Reviews

Cieciuch Family, US Virgin Islands
“Jake and Mackenzie, there are not enough adjectives to explain how AMAZING you both were! Kind, warm, fun, energetic and knowledgeable. The food was incredible (and we are not easy to cook for with allergies and vegetarians amongst us). Mackenzie was so creative. Her presentations were gorgeous. We ate like royalty. Our older daughter - who has the allergies - was thrilled, as were we all. And Jake was a blast and has good karma as we always found the best mooring spots! He was always happy to teach us about the boat and about sailing, and energetically facilitated all the activities of our active family. Both of them tirelessly played games and swam with us and the girls in their down time. Our younger daughter cried all the way to town after they dropped us off because she was missing them so much. We would absolutely book another trip with this duo!”

Johnson Family, US Virgin Islands
“I cannot thank you two enough for such a fantastic trip. Y´all are the best! We really needed the down time and we are so appreciative of you both for taking such great care of our family. Y´all make a great team and you provided our family with an outstanding vacation.”

Herold Family, US Virgin Islands
“Thank you for an amazing experience! You make a dynamic duo. This trip was definitely memorable and that is a big part to do with your amazing hospitality!! The island hopping, the games, and the snorkeling were so fun, and we appreciate all of your hard work and efforts to make this the best trip ever.´

Oren Crew, US Virgin Islands
“Wow! What an amazing time we’ve had exploring St. Thomas and St. John with you! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect match than you both. You made us feel comfortable, relaxed, and you embraced our quirkiness and adventures! You chose perfect spots to explore and did a perfect job listening to our interests and needs and creating a great itinerary accordingly. Mackenzie – the food was top notch! We got so spoiled with your delicious cuisine. We created lasting memories and have enjoyed every moment. The anniversary celebration, “bachelorette party,” and 40th birthday bash were all so fun! We all hope to make a return visit and wouldn’t think to sail with anyone other than you two. Whether it’s here or Croatia, this won’t be the last you see of us!”

February 2022 USVI Charter

Best care anywhere! Charming and incessantly attentive. Hannah and Tom made for a care free week on Karma. The natural beauty of paradise was heightened by our amazing crew and boat. Thanks for the memories!

January 2021 USVI Charter

The crew is what made Karma so perfect. Captain Tom and Chef Hannah..I don’t have adequate words to describe them. They work so well together, are so welcoming and accommodating, anticipated any need we might have before we even knew we wanted it, generous with their time and talent, friendly—we felt at home the moment we came onboard. Honestly, I could keep going. We are all ruined now because they set the bar so high.

January 2022 USVI Charter

Chef Hannah and Captain Tom
Wow- I honestly have no adequate words to thank you enough for sharing your ´Karma´ with us all. I knew this would be an amazing trip, but I had no idea how beyond amazing it would be. The setting, the adventure, all of our experiences were magnified by your grace and hospitality. From the depths of my heart I say ´Thank You´
Many blessings on your adventures to come.
Joan and Jeff

Hannah and Tom,
Thank you for a great adventure, sailing, eating, atmosphere. Everything was perfecto. We are thankful for this amazing week.
Best of luck in your future adventures
-Bill

Tom and Hannah,

NYE 2021 USVI Charter

Hannah and Tom,
You are amazing! Always a smile and a helping hand when needed. Amazing food putting us in all the right places to really enjoy a spectacular week. You are an amazing team and we wouldn´t have had the special experience we all had without all you did for us. Thank you! While you ´say´ no one saw more octopus that us, it was your guidance that got us there! Octopus, squid, rays, eels, and so many turtles. You always put us in the right spots!
We certainly are leaving with a few more pounds than we came with! Hannah -your menus were great!
We leave with many fond memories and will think back on our grand adventure with delight. We will miss you both and hope you have a wonderful life and many great adventures ahead.
-Amy, Steve, Drew, and Cole

Hannah and Tom,
Hopefully the pounds will leave while the memories linger-we had a marvelous week and took joy in your seamanship and teamwork. You truly are a dream!
Love to both of you and our very best wishes on continuing adventures.
-Dick and Maxine

Christmas 2021 USVI Charter

Hannah and Tom,
It is so hard to find the words to say for what this trip means to us. Family, friends, Xmas, and these good islands all together is incredible but then to have the 2 of you guiding us, cooking for us, sharing tips and smiles makes out hearts so full. Amazingly you showed us new things, new places, new drinks and recipes, and bioluminescent fish on our last night. We all feel reenergized and are already looking forward to next year (we will need time to diet before returning). Lionfish, lobsters, mahi-mahi, turtles-we felt like we were in heaven. Bravo! Standing Ovation! And all our love.
-Connie and Miles, Ron and Andy

November USVI 2021

Hannah and Tom are really special people…friendly, thoughtful, service oriented, always available to help, professional, lovely. They are truly amazing crew. We highly recommend them. No words would adequately describe the miraculous dishes that came out of that galley! I was wondering how Hannah would pull off another week of fabulous cuisine without repeating dishes we experienced last year, but she did!! We didn’t request new dishes but her creativity and presentation impressed everyone. Our experience on Karma was top class, and we will most certainly do it again!
-Ehrharts

July 2021 USVI Charter

Toma nd Hannah
How can we begin to thank you for giving us this amazing, beautifull, memorable, perfect vacation? We will always remember the two of you and the week on Karma. We loved the FOOD, the two of you, the perfect spots you chose, tubing, hiking, shopping, and the snorkeling. Your hospitality was over the top. We are definitely going to come back for another trip. Safe travels to Grenada! Anytime you are in Maryland look us up, so we can return the hospitality.
Thank you

June 2021 USVI Charter

Hi guys!
If you are reading this know we miss you tons! You guys were the absolute best! The food and drinks and activities were fun-but what we enjoyed most was your company! You are both such kind, interesting, and fun people and I´m so lucky that we booked with you! We must go diving in Truks or skiing in Jackson Hole together! I will always remember your family and I hope this not the last time we meet.
Love Always

April 2021 USVI Charter

Wow-how do we even put into words what this trip has been for us. Our expectations were incredibly high an they were constantly exceeded. Thank you for an amazing week. Not sure what was the best part-the food, the drinks, the laughs, the great vistas? Thankfully the only casualty was one apple watch. Not sure how we can ever top this trip. Thank you Tom and Hannah for making this all that it has been!
Love Kyle and Brooke

We are at a loss for words to adequately capture how amazing this trip has been! Hannah and Tom went above and beyond to make this our best vacation ever! Gourmet food, beautiful bays, unimaginable rainbows, peanut butter bushwhackers and the best gin fizz ever. snorkeling with seat turtles, sunrises and sunsets, best Kentucky Derby party with caribbean hats to boot. All of it was so fun and special. Even a torrential down pour at Lime Out was fun! Thank you for an amazing vacation. Out hearts (and tummies!) are full. We leave rested and relaxed and hoping to do it again.
-Rachel and Robert

March 2021 USVI Charter

Thank you for a fantastic week in paradise! Mat loved the snorkeling in Warerlemon, I loved the Maho Bay hike, the kids loved Cinnamon Beach snorkeling and all the gaming. Camden will remember all the Monopoly and Dominoes. The food was fantastic and the rum punch and bushwhackers were superb! We will be back unless we buy our own boat. Thank you for the best family vacation.
