Libra 50 Guest Reviews
Our New Best Mates!
To our new best mates, Chris and Lida
Your two have made this holiday such an incredible time and we cannot thank you enough! We are so happy to have met the two of you and spent a week together becoming friends. Your choice of beaches, snorkel spots and food were all excellent. Lida please come cook for us forever please?!
Cant wait to explore more with you all in the future.
Such An Escape
Thank you for such an incredible journey this past week. The USVI served us such an escape after a challenging past year and for this world.
Your kindness and hospitality truly made this special place blossom. The adventures (especially turtle and eagle ray sightings) were moments of pure joy and happiness.
We so enjoyed getting to know you both. Cheers to new friends near and far - we can´t wait to explore with you both again one day soon!
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
What a wonderful week we had and so much is due to your amazing hospitality and hard work. From the beautiful bays and beaches to the wonderful food, we will remember this trip for years to come. My personal favourite was Little Lamshur Bay - simply gorgeous!
I could never get David to the USVI but I think he has been converted and is now a big fan.
So many Memories Were Made!
You both made our family getaway that much more special by becoming our extended family for a week.
Your hospitality, captivating personalities and your positive energy are amazing! Never stop being YOU.
We loved hearing the passion in your stories of South Africa and hope to get there some day to see if ourselves.
Be it the cappuccinos, delicious meals, PAIN KILLERS, games played after dinner or just life on Libra, you made it special for me and my dear family. Many memories were made!
Wow! Words do not do justice to explaining the amazing job you two did this week. I will now forever say my first sailing experience was a 10/10. Both of you have unexplainable, unyielding charisma. I can truly say we are leaving as friends.
The way both of you love your job and love people is so evident. No bad day aboard Libra!
I cant say thank you enough!
What A Week!
What a week! After 3 previous sailing trips, our expectations were VERY high. Chris and Lida FAR exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful trip and consider you both friends!
It was awesome starting mornings with fresh coffee and cappuccino. The food was fresh and amazing.
We were the envy of every other boat thanks to the ´reverse cabungee´ and incredible water sports experiences.
I also appreciated the depth of the conversations and personal connections.
It´s almost as if you could read our minds and anticipate our every desire in advance.
Thank you both for making such a memorable holiday for us.
Truly A Passion For People!
Thank you all so much for the best week EVER! I could not imagine ever sailing with anyone else again. Y´all were so hospitable, patient and joyful. Every expectation was exceeded.
I am excited to leave this trip with two new friends in y´all and cannot wait to see y´all again - there WILL be an ´again´.
Y´all are the hardest workers I have ever met and truly have a passion for people, service and your jobs. Keep on!
Gratitude For You Both
There are no words to describe the amount of gratitude I have for both of you. You made us feel like family from the moment we boarded the boat. There was no request that was ever any trouble for you. Your knowledge and work ethic are not common in our previous trips.
Thank you for making this one of the most memorable holidays to date. We cannot wait to see you two again.
Experience to Refuel Our Spirits
Thanks for a great week!
A wonderful experience to refuel our spirits with nature and our connection with our family.
may God bless you and continue to give you the joy and strength to continue giving your guests so much joy and peace.
An Amazing Week!
Thank you so much for an amazing week on Libra. While obviously the setting is absolutely gorgeous, we especially enjoyed our time with the two of you.
Lida, your cooking is delicious and proves that Peyton actually will eat ! :) Thank you for sharing your recipes - we will let you know how we do.
Chris, we love your energy. Not only do you have every fun sea toy available at a seconds notice but you do it with such a happy, fun-living vibe. We have never seen someone take such meticulous care of water toys)
We will truly miss the both of you the most from this trip. We will also miss our morning cappucchino´s and endless cocktails.
It was a ´pleasure´ meeting you guys.
I Could Not Be More Satisfied
My experience was nothing short of outstanding. The crew is top notch as is the yacht. I could not be more satisfied.
Indeed, we had a wonderful time with your very professional crew, Chris and Lida. Chris, is at the top of his game and most certainly the best skipper that I have had the pleasure of meeting.
Feel Like Family
We relaxed and were taken care of to perfection. Our team and boat were fantastic! Chris and Lida made us feel like family.
