“A Unique B & B”
Reviewed March 3, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This was such a wonderful experience. We loved staying on this unique B&B. Speaking of breakfasts.....it is amazing what Kay was able to cook up in the small galley kitchen. Thank Kay for taking our dietary interests in mind! Skipper made our stay even more special. We wish we could take him with us. What we truly enjoyed was the conversations with Jonathan & Kay. It helped us slow down and appreciate the art of good conversation./ Jeff & Tricia Thomas

“Low-key, No pressure, Friendly place to be!”
Reviewed February 28, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I enjoyed going to sleep with the sound of little ripples against the boat and the slight rocking. And then to get up early in the morning and plug the coffee pot in and watch pelicans dive for their breakfast. - Jim

Delicious breakfasts, accommodating hosts, perfect! - Joan

“Spending the night on the ocean”
Reviewed January 11, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We had such a wonderful night aboard the Dream Lover. What a beautiful boat, and Kay & Jonathan are awesome hosts. Lovely conversation, and an experience of a lifetime spending the night on the ocean. We want to thank Kay & Jonathan for opening up their home to us. We hope to be back soon for a longer stay.

“What a fun adventure of living on a "sailboat!"”
Reviewed January 9, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

person found this review helpful

What a wonderful experience we have had on the boat with Kay, Jonathan, & Skipper! The weather was so lovely for the first day and a half & the last twelve hours were all part of the fun adventure of living on a "sailboat!" Lightning strobbed through the cabin windows at 3:30 a.m. accompanied by the staccato of thunder & the lapping of waves against the gunnels. Fun! We enjoyed watching the pelicans, terns, and ospreys fishing around the bridge and pier. Kay cooked delicious breakfasts, and Jonathan was a charming "busboy". Such fun to savor a snippet of life aboard ship. Kathy & Joanne

“A Wonderful Anniversary Experience!”

It was such a wonderful anniversary experience! The weather is beautiful and experiencing the island from waterside gave us a new and unique perspective. We loved the food and the accommodations as well as getting to know our hosts and Skipper, too, and getting a peak at the live-aboard life both on Dream Lover and the dinghy - Bad Dog! Jim & Patsy

“A Great Time on the Dream Lover!”
Reviewed December 7, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

What a great time on the Dream Lover! So close to the ocean and beautiful sunset! The food was good; the conversation was great; and the opportunity to fall asleep while being rocked gently by the lapping water! The dog therapy (Skipper) was an extra bonus! Such a wonderful experience! Debbie & Michael
