Dear Willo, Sean, Georgia and Adrian,
Thank you for making this a dream vacation for us ! Each of you put so much care into everything. You did to make this such a special family trip. You planned so much for us and yet every day felt so relaxed. Four days felt like two weeks away !
Thank you for somehows anticipating every vacation wish what we had. From seabob adventures to snorkeling and seing tortles, tender rides to see ship wrecks, kayacking, exploring, afternoon cocktails in the jacuzzi and ever a movie right on the fly bridge complete with popcorn ! How we had room for popcorn. I don’t know because Adrian’s insanely good food had us all but licking our plates at every meal. It was though she knows the exact fantasy meals to put in front of us. And all the super special treats from homemade pastries, bread to out of this world desserts.
We honestly have never tasted such delicious food clearly prepared with love.
Georgia your way of taking care of our every need without us ever seing you do itw as magical. We would turn around and where would be a tray of beautiful and delicious afternoon drinks or we would go back to our room to change and poof beds were made. I don’t know how youd id think so quickly.
Sean your expert tender driving made what anyone lese would have turned back from onto an adventure what ended with amazing snorekling in turquoise waters. What you do always pulling out all the toys and taking the girls for the tube ride of their lives. Not to mention seabobs adventures we will talk about forever.
Willo, you make Namaste a family and a fantasy world wrapped into one ! Surprising us with pumpkins and acarving contest was one of the weetest memories we will have from the trip. With Georgia’s Halloween decoration and delicious desserts the last night was the best halloween party any of us will ever have been to.
Thank you all for making such a special trip.
And thanks so much to just be able to spend time with all of you but you did everything possible to make this a trip of a life for us all.
Love you guys ! Thank you !!!
