Marianne's Fresh Gourmet Food & Kristian's Irresistable Tropical Drinks

Food is a critical part of any vacation experience and our customers typically want something special & memorable. Fortunately Marianne’s father was a chef and she was brought up with a love and interest for cooking. Our extensive traveling has only served to broaden her culinary horizons and gourmet options, creating mouth watering delights. Marianne enjoys cooking with fresh produce and fruits and making her healthy meals from scratch. We of course cater to special dietary needs.

We also stock bottled water, juices, soft drinks and beer in our on-deck cooler and in the bar we carry a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Standard bar is included.

Thank you so much for a wonderful week at sea. As this was our first time for such a trip, you made us feel at ease and most welcome the minute we stepped on board. You are both great hosts. Marianne, what a fabulous cook you are and Kristian a most accommodating bartender. It was a fun and relaxing week with any memorable moments. “Get out of our cove”!

Best wishes to you both and safe sailing.

Marianne and Kristian what a week! Thank you for making our trip outstanding. We could not have asked for anything more. You thought of everything. The food was unbelievable and how amazed we were, when there was nothing out and then all of a sudden, out came a meal better than any fine restaurant. You took us to all the best spots in BVI. We had the best time with our old friends and our two new ones.

Thanks, Michael and Erin

Our first BVI experience and a memorable one. The trip far surpassed our expectations – from the blue water, the snorkeling and most definitely the food and service.

Marianne and Kristian. We had a wonderful time on Breanker the past nine days. After ten years of chartering in BVI we must say that Marianne is by far the best chef we’ve ever had! Your meals were a delight and we thank you enormously for the recipes. (The royalty check is in the mail). We loved the snorkel spots and especially the “Jacuzzi”! Thank you so much for the warm hospitality and sharing your home at sea with us. Wishing you good health and many great times with your grand kids.

Our very best regards, The Nobles, the Rogers, and the Morissons

Ginny Rae and Brad

My dear friends, Kristian and Marianne thanks for doing such a fantastic trip for us again. You two are truly the best!!! The food, the cocktails, and your company, your great Breanker ? all top top top notch. Much love to you and I cannot thank you enough. xoxo

Sonja

Without a doubt over the top ? quality ? quality ? quality. We loved the food and of course the beverages as both Kristian and Marianne is very talented. We will rebook in the future, as we could not find one fault. All was perfect. We found that the other guests were also the best. They not only kept us entertained but took us to many spots in the BVI.

Bob and Marge

Dear Marianne and Kristian. What a wonderful trip you made for us. The food was the best I have ever had! Obviously Bob too. You have converted him! I feel so blessed we meet you. So very blessed to be friends with Giselle and Steve for over 40+ years. This was awesome! The beaches, the views, the hospitality was the best. You all were so good to us! P.S. Plus living with Bob on his 1st trip to BVI! We fell in love with both of you!

Jan

Kristian and Marianne. Thank you for hosting Martin and I for our first BVI trip together ? very special. We are ?foodies? and enjoyed every bite! Really delicious! Martin?s comment was ?I know now I can stay in close quarters with you for a week?. He was just kidding but it really is the closest quarters we have been in together. You also have to understand that we also work together ? just like you two. It takes a special couple to do this and you are! Wonderful week that we will remember for a lifetime! All is? gooder than good? as the Southerners? says in SC?. We are sad to go?.

Jennifer and Martin

Dear Marianne and Kristian. By reading through many of the entries in this guest book, I can see we are not the only people who have been totally blown away by this incredible experience – turtles, sharks, dolphins, barracudas, Rays, Kenny Chesney and pain-killers – What a week!! Thanks for every thing – come visit Austin soon! Highly recommended, can’t wait to do it again.

Vivek and Brittany

Priceless memories will live with us forever. Great weather, food, drinks, family and 2 great friends You two are “the class of the Caribbean!” Thank you so much! Keep up good work – we will be back soon –

Nilesh and Monica

Dear Marianne and Kristian. WOW…..What to say!..... We have been lucky enough to see some beautiful places over the last 10 years or so, but this holiday takes the price for the best ever! So many beautiful places (and still so many left to see for next cruise…..!) Delecious food (every meal!) than even sometimes-defeated 4 teenagers! Great “Happy Hour” (or two hours or three) and some wonderful restaurants and bars you shoved us too. Hard not to admire what you do – not just the hard work, the professionalism, the hospitality, your relaxed and easy going atmosphere (perfect for vacation!) – but the character the two of you bring to us all. It has been a privileged getting to know you just a little bit….and a shame it will be a while before we see you again. We were all ready trying to figure out this morning when we can come back next year (Easter unlikely because of teenagers with Public exams!)….but we will figure it out, even if we have to miss a season! Love you both, thanks for a wonderful time, for sharing your home with us and for being so relaxed and welcoming with “our” four guys. We will miss you both…. Until next time….

Mary and Tom

From all of us, thank you for welcoming us into your world and home. The seas, dives, Happy Hours and meals were all superb – only surpassed by the graciousness of our hosts. We are lucky to be able to call you friends. We had a wonderful time! Thanks for all the hard work and the hospitality to make our vacation fun! We love you!! Waiting to return soon…. (your favorite 3rd grader Greg!!!) Hope to see you both again
