I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your hard work during our week in Greece. We had a fabulous time and really appreciated your relaxed and friendly company. Suffice to say, we have now fallen in love with Greece and can’t wait to see more of it! Next year: Kefalonia for sure!

You really made our holiday so relaxing (sorry we were so lazy) – and we were all enchanted (even the kids) by the fabulous & healthy lunches you magicked out of the galley every day! Nikos and his Blue Marlin made our journey through the Ionian smooth and comfortable, and the boat was surprisingly spacious for a whole week. It made all the difference to be swimming every day with lots of flexible stops. You went beyond and above that to help us with the Kastos arrangements to meet Justin and the foot surgery and the booking in the mountains. It was great to get to know you and I hope we will have a chance to meet again through work or otherwise.

My wife Tammy and I were looking for a beautiful and unforgettable experience for our honeymoon. Sail in Ionio not only provided this, but exceeded all our expectations by becoming our gateway to a new world of heavenly beauty, loving people, and exhilarating new skills. Our Captain Nikos and our hostess Lesley became the consummate ambassadors and traveling companions in a unique journey that has changed our lives forever! For two weeks we sailed over 200 nm in the beautiful sloop Bebela, visiting fourteen gorgeous destinations across seven Ionian Islands. The experiences we had were as unique and special as each of those island jewels. Our captain and hostess were the most special people of all. With over thirty years of sailing experience, Capt Nikos’ expert assessment of the daily weather conditions, coupled with his rich and detailed knowledge of all the islands, allowed him to select the best ports of call for our care-free relaxation. Without fail, he knew where and when to arrive daily to provide us with the maximum enjoyment and the best access to local villages and tavernas. On many occasions, we had the best anchorage spot and would watch as other less experienced crews had to settle for less than ideal locations. Our hostess Lesley is gifted with an uncanny ability to anticipate her guest’s every need, providing everything from necessities (like fresh towels and blankets) to every form of treat imaginable. She loves to hike and provided her expert advice of beautiful trails on every island. But her greatest gift is her love for cooking, which was superbly displayed with every lovingly prepared breakfast and lunch she created for us. She carefully listened to our desires and crafted delicious meals catering to our individual tastes. Thank you Capt Nikos, Lesley for enriching our lives and giving us new dreams. We will never forget this experience and look forward to sailing with you again many times in the years to come!

My wife, Sue and I first sailed with Lesley and Nikos in the Summer of 2006. I had been asking Sue what she would like to do to celebrate her special Birthday and she didn’t hesitate in saying “I want to sail with Lesley and Nikos again because we had such a lovely time before”. Lesley & Nikos were the perfect hosts . Lesley is a superb cook and they both know the Ionian so well. They were able to take us to some wonderful villages and secluded bays, where we enjoyed the Greek food and swimming in the clear, blue Ionian.
