Staying aboard Tricia during my stay in Leros was relaxing and comfortable. She's a lovely boat with lots of charm. Her proximity to the marina meant easy access to a spacious shower, laundry facilities and great coffee at the Skipper's Bar.
My hosts, Christy and Michael, made me feel welcome. Periodically, they stopped by the boat to see how I was getting on and they were keen to make sure all was okay. Being very independent themselves, their hosting style is unfussy--perfect for people who just want to do their own thing.
I was not able to stay here in the end and despite the listed strict cancellation policy, Christy was very understanding. She seemed like a very sweet, understanding individual. Overall she made the whole process painless and easy.
Thank you Christy!
We had a very enjoyable stay on Tricia, relaxed and laid-back, all sun-specked shade and serenity amidst the bustle. Tricia is a charming old boat which no longer leaves the marina but still sports abundant sailing paraphernalia and bears an unmistakable imprint of the owners' personalities. Our hosts gave us a very warm welcome (gracious!), introduced us to the island (helpful!) and offered us a glimpse into their lives (fascinating!).
Perfect if you're looking for simple pleasures and a home-away-from-home experience.
My husband and I had a very comfortable stay at Mara's. The room was big, clean, and comfortable. The location for us was good. It was quiet and away from town, but still only a 10 minute drive to Montevarchi to get things from the grocery store or to a restaurant. It is a half and hour beautiful and very winding drive to the center of Chianti, and 45 minutes to an hour from the Florence airport.
Mara was very helpful with all of our questions. The only thing we had trouble with was communication about our arrival time, so make sure you make sure to contact her directly before coming (unlike we did). And her friend Christi was also very helpful with helping us plan our stay.
Christy was a fabulous guest, we had a wonderful night talking about her travels and interests. At the end of the evening we felt as though we had met a new friend. We would love to see her again.
Christy was a wonderful, wonderful guest. We had some nice conversations and she was totally respectful and cheerful person to be around. Fantastic experience!
