The Annex Guest Reviews
Early February, 2020, guests aboard THE ANNEX wrote…
We all had such a wonderful time. The Crew; Nicolas, Oliver, Roma and Gema treated us like royalty. They actually became part of our group. We were pampered from start to finish. Nicola and Oliver charted a course where we could see and do a lot of things. They found us private coves for water sports, paddle boarding, snorkeling, swimming, floating and water skiing. Your generosity of providing ´Lemon Head´ for our use was spot on. I don’t know how we would have done this without her! It even provided some with an important fishing excursion.
Roma is an excellent cook with delicious meals and even catered to Bill & Pat on their 46th wedding anniversary. She is an amazing cook and we looked forward to each meal and our happy hour hors d´oeuvres! Even when we didn´t eat on board, Roma arranged meals on land, a place to watch the Superbowl and have a lobster dinner. I´m sure we all put on a few pounds. Gema, Miss full of energy and spunk, made sure we were very comfortable in our cabins and catered to us the entire time. Roma and Gema even provided signature drinks during our trip.
Meals were EXCELLENT, fresh and beautifully presented. Roma and crew knew our preference sheet and provided alternative meal for a member that did not like fish. They even had a special dinner to celebrate members 46th anniversary.
Captain and crew made things easy. They were very knowledgeable of the area, and bent over backwards to meet our needs. you would have never known this was the first time they all worked together on the Annex. Everything was spot on !Everything exceeded my expectations. The Captain and the crew made this trip a trip of a lifetime! I would highly recommend Nicolas, Olivier, Gema and Roma
Yacht was beautiful and more spacious than we thought. Yes there was plenty of shade with the 3rd level providing great views. Cabins were maintained daily and sheets/towels midweek. Lovely indoor and outdoor areas.
It was great having the bigger boat (´Lemon Head´)... She was able to accommodate all 10 of us and the crew.
The 8th of February guests aboard THE ANNEX said:
This was the most amazing trip ever. The crew made all attempts to make this an amazing adventure. Nothing was to much trouble for Captain Nicolai, Captain Oliver, First mate Gemma and Chef Roma. We were a group of 10 and we all had the same opinion. Our travel to the different ports were very interesting and enjoyable. The meals were so delicious. Chef Roma went above and beyond to prepare the meals. I can’t say enough about this wonderful trip.
Absolutely flawlessin every way! I will remember the gourmet meals so perfectly presented in hopes I may become inspired to upgrade my own offerings! Thankyou so very much for making my BVI trip so special and memorable.
