Lovely evening with great people and mold
We where fortunate enough to stay a night on the Caribbean Soul in August 2018. The boat is beautiful. The flush deck layout is optimal and the tramp on the front is so neat. We found Kelly and Gary to be delightful hosts. We could not have asked for better weather for a short cruise. I could have given it 6 stars but for one issue that would have been helpful to know. So I will share it here. The air in the cabins was thick with mold. Two of our party are sensitive to mold and when we entered the staterooms we where knocked out by the mold smell. The boat was very clean and it would have gone undetected but for the overwhelming smell. We took the bedding out on the tramp and slept until our backs became too sore to sleep forcing us inside. It left me under the weather for the rest of the weekend. There are things that could be done with the vessel to combat the issue. If you do ok in that environment, this is a very good value. We would have made plans to do an entire weekend next year. We where a bit surprised that we found no coffee available. Not a big deal, but would have been greatly appreciated. We are glad to have met Kelly and Gary and wish them all the best.
It was nice to meet the 4 of you and glad you enjoyed the sunset cruise and accommodations in general. We are so sorry to hear about the mold and wish you would have let us know that evening. I would have been happy to have you stay in another property that evening! Earlier in the month while we attempted to remedy any odor, we suggested canceling or postponing their dates. One still preferred to stay as set and had no issue, so we thought we had addressed it: We had someone else think it was diesel coming through the A/C vents and my husband had all the vent ducts replaced. Some of this work had been completed mid- month, prior to your stay. After which the final duct was replaced. It was then that we did discover some mold in one of the utility compartments and had it remediated. Again, are so sorry. As for the coffee, I had brought some down and set out along with fruit and muffins thinking you were still asleep as 1 vehicle was still there, but you had left early as we had confirmed thru texts. Again, we enjoyed meeting you all and are working dilengently to continue to make improvements over the winter, while South, and look forward to our second year with Caribbean Soul as we strive to provide a truly unique and satisfying experience to our returning and future guests!
Vacation of a life time
We wanted to get away for a romantic anniversary, and loved every minute of it . It was everything HomeAway advertised with personality plus. And what an awesome experience. Kelly and Gary, Thank you both so much.
We so enjoyed hosting you both! What an perfectly amazing and full three days we shared! Such a pleasure to meet you and look forward to sharing more adventures in the future!
An amazing weekend!
What an incredible adventure this was, thanks to Kelly and Gary, whom are kind, generous, laid back, and so accommodating! I had never stayed on a catamaran overnight before, let alone for a weekend, so I was not sure what to expect. My partner and I and two teenage boys stayed for Memorial weekend. It was fantastic from start to finish. Kelly and Gary made every effort to make our stay relaxed and comfortable. The boat is very clean and comfortable and much more spacious than I had anticipated. The boys were well pleased with the wi-fi connection and AC. Kelly and Gary even offered to allow my local family to come aboard for a quick cruise on the lake. It's a bonus that the marina ashore has more spacious showers and the Jackalopes restaurant is great for a quick drink and snack. My favorite part of the trip was sitting on deck while watching the sunrise and sunset. Thank you so much to our hosts! It is a weekend we shall not forget!
