6 Stars Out of 5!

Six stars out of five! 11 out 10! However you want to rate a holiday, a cruise aboard the Lolalita is the sailing vacation of a lifetime. The yacht is as majestic as the blue waters of the BVI! Captain Ernie, Chef Megan and the crew are impressive, professional – and a lot of fun. The crew’s attention to detail is remarkable; nothing was overlooked as we sailed from island to island, reef to reef. They guided us through a magical trip filled with gourmet meals, scuba diving, snorkeling, beautiful beaches and more. We enjoyed every second on the Lolalita and feel lucky to have met such an incredible sailing team. We recommend the Yacht Lolalita to anyone wanting an exceptional, luxurious sailing experience in the BVI. P.S. I really had a great time learning to scuba dive when I was aboard the Lolalita... I now plan on getting my scuba diving certificate over the summer!"

Experience of a Lifetime!

Last week was one of the very best of my life, and Rob’s too. We keep pinching ourselves, trying to believe that it really happened — but the fact that we’re STILL swaying with the boat helps remind us that it did. It truly was the kind of vacation dreams are made of and you all worked so hard to make it a special kind of magic for each of us. (The shark rescue — hooray!!) You guys are incredibly talented and lovely and awesome. We miss the boat, we miss your delicious cooking, we miss paradise and we miss hanging out and laughing with all of you! Thank you so, so much for giving us the experience of a lifetime!

The Head Turner!

Lolalita - beautiful vessel. Carefully maintained. It is the head turner in every anchorage. Diving- this was exactly what I wanted. We got to the best sites and dove on our schedule. Tanks and compressor are onboard. (the only way to go) Ernie and Jeff briefed us perfectly. The compressor on board had a part fail (happens to every boater), and they never missed a beat, running tanks to and from fills. Megan- We have all experienced a restaurant where the creativity, taste, and presentation of a particular dish caused us to compliment the chef. It is no exaggeration to say we had such an experience 3 times a day for a week. Unbelievable. One of our group has severe food allergies. Megan prepared special dishes for her all week. It was the first time in years that she felt comfortable eating whatever was prepared for her. However, I hold Megan personally responsible for my 6 lb weight gain. She is also sweet, beautiful, intelligent, and a gracious hostess. But other than those flaws, I liked her. Jeff- We all fell in love with Jeff. We asked if we could take him home with us. They gave us T-shirts instead. Oh well. Ernie- This is a very knowledgeable and dedicated Captain. I owe him an apology for all my questions about boats, his life, etc. He is also just a lot of fun to be with. He and his family made us feel like welcome guests on their boat. By the end, we considered them friends and feel the urge to invite them on our next adventure, whatever it is. I have never chartered before, but I have to believe it is the better experience to be on a boat operated by it’s owners. As for the rest, what goes on Lolalita stays on Lolalita, but as I told the group during the trip, when I die, I’m coming back as Ernie.

Enjoying Our 2nd Trip!

"This past week we were blessed to enjoy a trip with all of our kids on board the lovely Lolalita. Lance and I enjoy traveling and greatly appreciate good customer service. I've never meet a group of people like the crew of Lolalita. They go WAY above & beyond to make sure you are enjoying yourself. You board as a guest and leave as family. I thought last year was fantastic - this year was even better! Megan definitely rivals the best chefs around the world! Ernie is always thinking about your comfort as a guest. It's like he's a mind-reader: before you can ask a question he's already on it. I've never seen a group of people work so hard, always on the go and always a genuine smile and ready to help. Ernie, Megan, and Jeff: we love you guys like family and can't wait for our adventure next year. Every time our family plays Papelitos we will cherish the awesome crew of Lolalita!"

Phenomenal Trip!

Thank you so much for providing one of the best Christmas trips to date. The fun hospitality knowledge you both provide as well as a clear passion for what you do was the difference maker between this and anything we have enjoyed before. Aside from the unfortunate conch horn lesson the experience was without fault. Thank you again foe all that you did to create a fantastic and eternally memorable vacation. You absolutely made this trip phenomenal.

The trip was amazing! Lolalita is a really beautiful boat that is kept in pristine condition by Ernie, Megan and Jeff. We had a group of six and I think that was the perfect size for this boat. There was plenty of room to spread out. Ernie, Megan and Jeff were an awesome crew! Ernie had the perfect balance between being a tour guide with suggestions for daily activities and also just sitting back and letting us do our own thing. Megan is an excellent cook and did an amazing job keeping the boat looking like a 5-star hotel. She also is a really great person to hang out with and I had a lot of fun getting to know her. Jeff is just an all-around great guy. He was a patient and professional SCUBA instructor, a laid-back and fun friend on the boat and always hard at work with a smile and warm demeanor. I think the combination of this boat and crew is really special and would be great for a wide variety of groups from families with young children to people looking to party and older adults looking for relaxing vacation. I hope to spend time on the Lolalita again soon.

Marshall and I had a great time! I have only great things to say about Megan, Ernie, and Jeff. Megan is an amazing chef and photographer. I enjoyed getting to know Megan, she is a sweet lady. Ernie- Funny! We had fun with Ernie. Jeff- He was like the groups little brother. We had fun with Jeff. He has a great personality. He is a really great dive instructor and guide. We decided to get married on the trip 4 days before we left for the trip. I bought a dress 5 hours before our flight. Ernie woke up early on Thursday of the trip and made a heart out of rocks in the sand, he gathered a palm and sea grape leaves to make my bouquet. Megan helped the girls and I get ready; she provided my something borrowed bracelet. She made the perfect wedding dessert! Jeff drove the wedding dinghy to Sandy Spit. Megan and Ernie took some beautiful pictures which I already have hanging in my home. Overall, amazing trip with amazing people! I would love to go again some day.

Unforgettable Trip

We had a fantastic time on Lolalita! The crew accommodated all of our needs and desires in order to make this trip unforgettable, especially for the kids. We threw a big birthday bash for our VIP family member (stuffed animal Beaver), that included a customized homemade beaver cake, from the chef, streamers and even fun hats. For Easter, we had an Easter egg hunt that everyone laughing, even the adults. Each place the Captain took us to was even more beautiful than the last. The only issue we had is that we didn't have enough time-so the crew let us extend our trip by 24 hours just to squeeze in even more fun and relaxation. Thank you Lola!

He has frequently been headhunted to create diverse menus in the fine-dining restaurant industry before winning an international cooking competition three years ago that put him onto the worlds largest superyachts. We stole him away for a new chapter in his career to chef on smaller boats like Lolalita where he enjoys a more personal and interactive experience with the guests, teasing them with flavours throughout each day. He has an excellent knowledge of many styles of cuisine from asian to mediterranean and good old BBQ and takes pride in sourcing the finest ingredients around.

She recently moved into the yachting industry to explore beyond the horizon while using her eye for detail to maintain a first class hotel environment onboard and making sure her guests always feel pampered and well looked after. She’s also out on deck, pulling lines and driving the tender, making sure the adventure is always flowing.
