Sea Esta Guest Reviews
Incredible Christmas Vacation with our 4 Kids
Captain Miles and Chef/1st mate Rachel were excellent hosts and truly made the entire experience wonderful. Our kids could not stop raving about how great it was, ´best trip everrrrr!´
Relaxed and flexible sailing agenda
Captain Miles caught fresh lobster, conch and red snapper for dinner.
Rachel cooked awesome meals and made incredible island drinks ....The Pain Killer!
White sand beaches, great snorkeling, hiking and cliff jumping
Willy T´s (my son jumped off naked-thinking it would get him a free drink!)
Unbelievable quality family time.

Miles and Rachel took the trip to a whole new level!
This was our third time taking this trip - and this was by far the best. I did not think we could top our last two trips - but Miles and Rachel took things to another level. They were both very professional but knew how to have a great time. Rachel´s food was amazing - and she had to deal with a number of different food diets we had on board. We always look forward to eating at restaurants while we are down there but none of the restaurants lived up to what Rachel made on the boat. There are many captains in the BVIs - but not many that know where to catch fresh lobster, conch and real in some fresh fish all in the same trip. I certainly would recommend this trip to friends and to use Charterhouse - all the employees we have met have been superb.~The Hahn Family
Miles and Rachel were a perfect match for us!
Had a blast with Captain Miles and Rachael! They are fantastic! Rachael is an amazing chef. Miles coined her style as ´fancy family´... very creative and delicious! Miles ’s knowledge of the area and sailing is spectacular!! We´ve enjoyed their laid back and fun personalities. They were a perfect match for all of us.
We Never Dreamed It Could Be So Amazing!
My husband and I have always dreamed of sailing a catamaran around the beautiful islands in the BVI, but we never dreamed it could have been as amazing as the trip we took with Captain Miles and first mate Rachel.
The attention they took to understanding our desires for our trip was awesome. We love to snorkel and they made sure we went to outstanding snorkel spots. We prefer the more natural places away from the crowds and they delivered. They gave us great adventures like diving for lobster then preparing and cooking them on the grill. Rachel´s expert chef talents made for perfect meals.
Miles and Rachel were a great team, they made all of us feel so comfortable. I appreciated their positive relaxed take on everything. It made you stop and be ever so thankful for your surroundings and life. Never have we seen stars so bright and plentiful.
The boat was equipped with everything we needed. We look forward to taking another adventure sailing, as well as many of our other friends who are anxious to go too. It could not have been more perfect!
Trip Of A Lifetime!
We just got back last night and it was AMAZING! Trip of a lifetime! You could not have picked a better crew for our family and trip! We absolutely adore Rachel and Miles. They left no stone unturned for us in the trip of a lifetime! I had A LOT of First times for this and that on this trip! At 50 years of age and adventurous all my life I had no idea that was possible! :) Rachel grew up about 10 minutes from where I grew up many years ago! That was such a great immediate connection.
They were the perfect fit for our family! The kids adore them both! We saw and did everything and more! We all ended up loving Anegada the best which we almost said no to and now are so happy we had it in our itinerary. We ended up spending 2 days we loved it so much. Rachel and Miles know many folks in each mooring/harbor. It was evident they are very well liked and respected. They were both so kind, respectful, helpful, fun, adventurous, extremely knowledgeable about the islands, attentive, and a solid team. Rachel has so many strengths and talents. The biggest being her culinary skills. Every single meal was out doing the next. We were blown away by how many different type of foods she was able to prepare and serve! The table and presentation were 5 star. She doted on the kids with drinks and snacks. Every morning before we were up the ship was spiffed up and breakfast was ready to go when we were ready to eat! When miles wasn’t guiding the Cat or the dingy he was always helping in every way possible to support Rachel.
The biggest thing that really set them apart is that they gave us options constantly so we knew everything we could experience, eat and see. It was the so great to have been able to customize our own experience.
Miles and Rachel You Rock!
We spent a week cruising the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. The islands and water are beautiful. The trip was tremendous. But I believe a sailing trip around a pool would have been tremendous with these two.
Miles (the ´merman´ trust us you will see why) is a great captain. He had wonderful suggestions on activities and locations to visit. More importantly he navigated us to and from safely with ease. He is a certified diver and lobster wrestler. We had lobster taco´s, Miles wrestled that beast during breakfast and we had it for dinner. We can not say enough great things about Miles.
Rachel his first mate (´the most interesting woman in the world´, you will see why) is a great first mate. She prepared three glorious meals a day. She made everything from scratch. The food was overwhelmingly delicious, she put great thought into its preparation and presentation. How she executed the meals on the boat I will never know. Every meal was 5 star all the way. It is clear that she cares deeply about her guests and does everything to ensure they have a wonderful experience. You want fire dancing? She can make that happen. You want to see a mermaid? She can make that happen. You want to ride motorcycles? She can make that happen.
Rachel and Miles went above and beyond. I could write for hours and hours about how great they were. If you are looking for an average trip, stay away from these two, if you want a good trip, stay away from these two - If you want TREMENDOUS, I would not have anyone other than these two. There is a zero percent chance I would do another charter that did not include Rachel and Miles. Thank you guys so much for the whole experience.
What an incredible week! Our crew, Miles and Rachel, are some of the most interesting and fun people we have ever met. In addition to being a mermaid and fire dancer Rachel is also an amazing chef! I have no idea how she was able to create some of the culinary experiences we had on a boat but they were delicious. Miles is an awesome Captain! He knew all the great spots around the BVIs and we felt super safe having him at the helm. He is also a certified free diver and took us snorkeling and dove to get us fresh lobster for our tocos . My birthday was during our trip and they helped make it so special and something I’ll always remember. I really can’t say enough about how much fun we had on this vacation it’s something we will never forget.
