This was a trip of a lifetime for our family. You made us feel right at home from the moment the trip started. The kids had an amazing time and so did we. After this experience we hope to do it again!Thank you!
This was great trip. I enjoyed all activities included food. I hope we will go on this trip again. Thank you for the great trip.
Thank you for this amazing experience. I hope that we will do this trip again with you.
The memories will be endless but the pleasure was all ours to be with you. Everything about the trip was more than we imagined. The entire crew are some of the best people we have ever met. We would sail anywhere with you. Tim made my nervous wife comfortable which is not easy. Steph could never do enough for us which was alway be remembered. Kate well what can we say - we may never enjoy another meal as much as we enjoyed yours. the boat is beautiful inside and out. Thanks for being such great hosts, sailors and friends.Happy Birthday Steph!!!
Thank you for the endless memories; the best vacation ever! We loved every minute of our week because of your hospitality and thoughtfulness. Please keep in touch…The best type of ships are friendships.Smooth sailing
From the moment we stepped aboard Endless Pleasure, you made us all feel very welcome and at home. We know it was a bit more tricky to do a tandem and we really, really appreciate your flexibility and willingness to accommodate us. We had so much fun sailing with you, snorkeling with you and even tubing with you. You always seemed to find the perfect spot for us to spend the night. It was great to meet you!! xX
Words cannot express the amazing experience you’ve given us this week. Thank you for opening up your home and lives to us. Every day you went above and beyond to show us incredible places an explore islands that look to beautiful to be real.Your hard work and dedication to your guests is evident from start to finsih. Even when lugging my oversized suitcase. :)Thank you for everything. Your hospitality will never be forgotten and I hope to visit again soon. Or come to STL and we can take you out and you can relax!Thanks for everything!
You two ROCK!So many inspirations I take a way from this experience. I can’t wait to see you gain soon.
What an amazing week! Thank you for sharing “your home” with us. Your boat is perfectly set-up and we never wanted for anything. From the minute we stepped on the boat, you made us feel welcome and opened your arms to make sure we had everything we needed. You took us to so manny beautiful places in the BVI and made sure we found a few good places for cocktails. :) This is a trip we will not forget and will make plans to return again soon.Thanks for your incredible hospitality,
What a hoot! You two are the best…bet Capt. and 1st Mate, best company and best friend. You welcomed us with open arms into your home. You have a great operation and you deliver it with the care and consideration befitting of how your true nature is…just the nieces of people in the nicest of settings. I’ll be back many times my friend cause…We’re wasting’ away in Mike OLearyvilleSearching for that last Jameson shotSome people say that there’s a squirrel to blameBut Iknow it’s Tim and Steph’s fault!So long for just awhile.
You guys are very special, your warmth, openness, generous approach to each day is a pleasure to share. You opened a crack in the window on a different life at sea. We look forward to staying in touch. Thanks for everything.PS Great name for the boat.
And a letter written on our behalf to the broker:Review submitted to the broker from guests aboard ENDLESS PLEASURE in early August, 2015 in the Grenadines: How did you find your crew, Tim & Stephany Mauer? Were they friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating?Tim and Stephany were tireless, helpful, interesting and sensitive to our needs. We could not have asked for a better crew. Their warmth, knowledge and willingness to share insights into their lives made the trip a very satisfying adventure. We have never received so much attention. Was Endless Pleasure comfortable, clean and well ventilated? What was your favorite aspect of the yacht?It is clear they take great pride in Endless Pleasure as it was very clean, well maintained and ready to sail under all kinds of conditions. The steady winds in the Grenadines and many hatches combined to keep the boat well ventilated. Air conditioning was turned on when needed and worked very well. Was the food enjoyable and well presented? Did the chef customize the menu to your preferences?We have never had a full time chef before – what a great experience. JoJo continually worked to anticipate our needs and was more than willing to accommodate our diverse dietary requests. Collectively, they provisioned the boat with foods and drinks that we requested after spending an hour with us on the phone in advance of the trip. JoJo’s fusion expertise made many many memorable meals and the rum punch was a crowd pleaser. Did you enjoy the itinerary and the area you sailed?The itinerary evolved as we gained experience with the area and the opportunities available. We watched a leatherback turtle crawl up on the beach, dig a hole, lay her eggs, cover them up and head back out to sea. We caught tuna and ate sashimi. Tim & Steph did all the work laying out the line, cleaning the fish and handing off the meat to JoJo to apply her magic. We went snorkeling in many places, and went ashore to explore numerous islands, which led to a pattern of snorkeling, sailing, fishing, anchoring, exploring and sometimes waterskiing, paddle boarding and tubing. They even took pictures of us as a family in many places and gave us the file with the pics at the end of the trip.Any additional comments / references / recommendations from your charter vacation experience:The end of the charter came too quick, we felt that we were just getting into a rhythm and could have spent many more days with Tim and Steph. We are interested in staying in touch with them and following their adventures and hope that our paths cross again.
A review of our trip written to the broker:Hi Katja,I have been so busy since I got home. But I wanted to write a quick note to tell you that we had a fantastic time, it was the best charter we have been on so far. The reasons for that are simple: the crew made it great! We loved the three person model, having JoJo as our chef was absolutely genius! She is very accomplished, did you know that she owned her own restaurant? The meals were incredible, everything made from scratch, she accommodated the kid’s requests, and quite simply made fantastic meals. She was so lovely and friendly with the kids, they were cooking with her in the kitchen. This has sparked something in my daughter Michelle, as a matter of fact she is making dinner for all of us right now (she is 12). She texted JoJo to ask for recipes. Now I want to tell you that Tim and Stephany were wonderful people. We felt very pampered, they are extremely professional, competent and overall caring people. They gave us whatever we asked for, if we wanted a certain spot, or a certain activity they made it happen. Stephany was always thoughtful, handing us ice water (especially good for the kids because they forget to hydrate), handing us towels, hanging our wet items, asking us what we needed, handing us our snorkel equipment, etc. Tim was wonderful with the kids, teaching sailing, fishing with James, bringing the kids tubing, bringing us snorkeling whenever we wanted. Tim prepared fresh tuna that James caught, took photos of us jumping, just overall friendly, accommodating and fun. What lovely people! We would like to charter with them again. It was a really good fit. I really think this crew is great for families with kids. We are so happy that we went with Endless Pleasure for this charter, definitely worth it to see the Grenadines in this way. I also felt that they knew the area well and this made us feel safe and comfortable. Everything on the boat worked well, even the dinghy. We have had other charters where the dinghy did not work and that was terrible for us. Tim and Steph take very good care of the boat and it shows, all was in good working order, clean and comfortable. I would like to write something more eloquent as a review for them but I just wanted to get this off to you so you know how it went.Sincerely,
What an amazing week we have had with you both. Spectacular views, amazing food, but most important? The company. We have loved the time with you this week. Thank you for you generosity and spirit this week. Love ya and cannot wait until next time!
We cannon than you enough for such an unbelievable vacation. We had a tough event with our 13 yr old boy going into surgery in Atlanta and you accommodated so we could have cell coverage and remain calm. Awesome hosts and boat. We will be back to share this wonderful experience with our children. God Bless and Lots of Love,
Obrigada pela semana incrível que passamos com voces. Inesquecivel!!!!! Nos divertimos muito e voltaremos em breve com os filhos. Se voces forem a Atlanta, saiba que “mi casa es sua casa.” Voces são sempre bem vindos.So Alegria!Sempre,
What a fabulous time and boat! It was wonderful and we wish we could do it too! It was really lovely to get to know you. I truly hope that we will all be able to do this again. Each of us has “fantasies” about how we can come back with other friends and family. Thank you for being so good to us and being the rest of our party. I wish we could do this many times over. Much love and success to you both,
Hello Stephany and Tim! We think of our time with you both and are so appreciative to have had the wonderful time and experiences that you allowed! We hope you are doing well.
Endless Pleasure lived up to its name. My husband and I joined Tim and Steph along with 4 other friends on our first-ever sail. Endless Pleasure proved to be the perfect ship, and Tim and Steph the perfect crew to experience the adventure of sailing the ocean in all it’s blue glory. There’s something to be said about starting each day with nothing but a swimsuit and a plunge into whatever water you are sailing that day. Then you take in the gorgeous sky, the happy sunshine, and enjoy the cruise with no care of phone, hair or what day it is. Tim and Steph were gracious and warm, making sure everyone was relaxed and satisfied. The best part of the trip was liking it so much that now I can’t wait to leave again tomorrow for another sailing adventure.” I could go on and on, but thought I’d keep it short. I truly, unexpectedly, loved the trip and look forward to doing it again. We WILL be in touch. So, happy adventures to you both. Miss you and can’t wait to see you both again. Love and peace,
Thank you for the wonderful experience of a life time that we will never forget. We hope to do it again in the next few months or year. Happy sailing and we will be in touch though out the year. Take care and safe travels. Bon Voyage! Best
We have decided that our stay on the Endless Pleasure can’t come to an end. It’s false advertising! We have taken the liberty of appointing ourselves as the newest members of your crew. We have donated all our possessions to charity and are ready for work. Should you need us. You’ll find us working hard on our tans over by the trampolines. Thanks Again for bringing us in to your slice of paradise, we’ve loved every minute. DON’T LET THE PRESSURE END! HUGS & KISSES!Respectfully,
Thank you for the best hospitality, conversation and endless/unique experience. We could have ever dreamed of. See you guys soon! We Love You! You made our last day the best!xoxo
A broker evaluation written from our guest’s stay on Endless Pleasure:CREWED YACHT EVALUATIONYacht ENDLESS PLEASURE Guests: the S******** Family March, 2016How did you enjoy your cruising vacation? On a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being the highest) the entire vacation from start to finish was a 11++++++ ! I can’t imagine doing this cruise vacation with another crew! The boat was lovely, but the crew made our vacation. They were always willing to do whatever and certainly paid attention to our preference sheet regarding where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. They tried to accomplish all our “musts” within the parameter of our timing.How would you describe your Captain and crew? Were they Courteous? Helpful? Friendly? Attentive? Knowledgeable?Any positive adjective would describe our crew. Courteous, Helpful, Friendly, Attentive, Knowledgeable are only a few of the adjectives I would use. I happen to be nervous on boats but I always felt safe and in competent hands. They went over the top to make our time on Endless Pleasure one to remember.Tell me about your meals? Did the menus meet your expectations? Did your crew pay close attention to your Preference Sheets?As I mentioned above, the crew paid close attention to our Preference Sheet; they even had the exact yogurt my daughter prefers. They were overly generous to purchase special edible items for my daughter’s birthday celebration.RE: Meals……..I/We have never had more delicious meals and beautifully presented. My two adult children even took pictures of every meal! We appreciate all the effort that went into each dining experience especially all the little touches i.e., cloth napkins at every dinner! How is the yacht? Is she clean and well-maintained? Were your cabins comfortable? Was the cockpit comfortable? Was there enough shade?The yacht was lovely. The beds were made every morning and the bathrooms cleaned. There was plenty of everything…..sunscreen if needed, lotions, etc. A welcome basket on our bed was a nice way to arrive.What did you like most about the yacht? What did you like the least?We liked everything! I think the crew made our vacation! A boat is a boat but the crew was what made our experience so special. At the end of our vacation, we all felt we had made lifelong friends. We hated saying goodbye. How did you find the pace and the itinerary of your vacation?Our crew scheduled our itinerary perfectly. All island stops were scheduled according to our wishes which were adventurous. Would you charter this yacht again? If not, please explain:Absolutely!
Thank you for sharing your home with all of us. We’ve been looking forward to this trip for months and I can honestly say you, the boat, the BVI exceeded all of our expectations. You’re all so good at making everyone feel comfortable and at home. Highlights - the Endless Pleasure Spritzer, the chocolate cake!!, surfing, waterboarding, snorkeling, really every dessert. Thanks for catering to the food requirements. The bolognese pasta will go down in Connor’s history as maybe his favorite part of the trip. We hope you get to to that trip around the world very soon and that we get to keep track of you along the way!! Fair Winds!
