Crew Profile

Captain Jenn & Chef Abrye (Bree) have each spent years running yacht charters all around the world from Southeast Asia to the Mediterranean. Now that they’ve joined forces together, they’re thrilled to welcome you aboard their new floating home in the Caribbean, Barefeet Retreat!

Jenn, a Texas native, has been sailing and instructing others on the sea since ‘09 when she taught dinghy & keelboat sailing at California State University, Long Beach. She has a strong passion for the ocean and fell in love with diving right here in the Virgin Islands. She took a brief hiatus from sailing on the water, to go below it working as a dive instructor. As Barefeet Retreat’s Captain & Dive Instructor, Jenn is thrilled to share her fascination of the sea with guests, always offering the most incredible views, both above and below the waterline.

Bree, our Florida gal, has a lifetime of passionate hosting experience and has always been a natural in the kitchen. After 9 years working in advertising strategy, Bree pivoted from her NYC desk job in ’17 & found new bliss working as a chef on the sea. She’s spent the last 4 years hosting charters at sea, programming wellness retreats on land, and sharing her skills as a host instructor for Quarterdeck’s host & skipper academy in Croatia. Entertaining is Bree’s forte and she finds it such a privilege to nourish her guests with mindfully curated meal plans using only the freshest and most wholesome ingredients.

Together, Jenn & Bree foster an incredible sense of hospitality and adventure on their charters. From the moment you step onto the yacht, you’re greeted with warmth and positivity. In addition to being partners in business, Jenn and Abrye are dear friends and a truly outstanding team. Clients have commented that they’re both an ideal mix of professional competence and outgoing fun. Jenn’s effortless humor paired with Bree’s natural maternal instinct will ensure that you’re smiling and satiated through the full duration of your yacht holiday.

Charter Yacht BAREFEET RETREAT Guest Reviews

Get ready to worry about nothing at all

“You have arrived, do yourself a favor and stop searching now, you will not find a better combination of craft and crew than this. Sailing aboard Barefeet Retreat with Captain Jenn & Chef Abrye is as good as it gets. We truly cannot think of a single thing that we would have changed during the entire week we spent. This newer yacht is very roomy, has all the comforts of home, and plenty of covered space for all to enjoy. Jenn & Abrye are intelligent, skilled, and kind, both with great senses of humor and delightful wit. Whatever your taste buds desire, Chef Abrye can make it happen, every meal was fantastic and full of flavor. I think this lady is the next big thing just waiting to be discovered, so amazingly creative. Captain Jenn is a divemaster, accomplished sailor, knowledgeable hiker, and a confident leader. You just know that you are in good hands with Jenn at the helm. So finish up your To Do List, pack lightly, and get ready to worry about nothing at all, and have one of the most wonderful weeks of your life.” - Dennis C.

Special lifelong bond that cannot be forgotten

"Creating lifelong memories is a special treasure that so many of us take for granted until it is too late. However, the week we spent on Barefeet Retreat with Captain Jenn and Breezy Cooking will always hold a special place in our hearts and our entire group is excited to be back on the boat with them again in the future. When a trip ends with genuine hugs and tears, that sums up that not only did everyone very much enjoy themselves, but we all made a special lifelong bond that cannot be forgotten. First, Breezy Cooking’s cuisine and special beverages would rival any fine restaurant, however the hospitality from Jenn and Bree make the trip even more special. Let me tell you, these two ladies worked hard the entire trip to make everything perfect for us, but they always were enjoying themselves, had smiles on their faces and had this contagious positive view on life that continues to resonate with us. These two special ladies are making the world a better place purely from being in it and spreading their infectious positivity to everyone who is around them. The boat’s layout was perfect, the beds were comfortable, everything was immaculate and clean and with scenic background accompanied with our new found family in Jenn and Bree made for a perfect trip that we will never forget and hope to duplicate soon. " - Steve E.

The dynamic duo

Bree and Jen are like the dynamic duo. Their personalities and dedication to a great charter, I imagine will be hard to find again. The food was amazing and Bree got it right every meal. Jenn was not only an awesome captain, but a great Scuba instructor as well. From the moment we stepped on the Yacht, the two of them really made us feel at home, comfortable, relaxed and in a mindset to have a great time. We only hope to bring our children back with us next time. p.s They found us front row mat position for "After Irma Band"......try that StubHub! - Matt F.

Fantastic week

What a Fantastic week we had with Mary Poppins (Bree) and Wonder Woman(Jenn)! They made all our adventures come true! We had a group of 8 with 6 divers and they made us extremely comfortable, paying attention to every detail possible. Food was out of this world and the sailing was very fun. You will be so happy you picked these two. - Troy K.

We are ready to book again

Our stay was beyond comfortable because Captain Jenn and Chef Bree exceeded all our expectations and truly brought our preferences to life! With children on board, we were amazed at the endless activities and constant attention that they provided to help us feel at home. Captain Jenn amazed us with her skill and knowledge, but also was warm and patient with our gang. And, Chef Bree is a ray of sunshine! She prepared five star meals for every seating and amazed us with daily cocktails of the day and delicious desserts! The crew duo serving Barefeet Retreat are so warm and caring that you’ll leave with 2 new family members! And, the boat was kept immaculate and stocked with water toys. We are ready to book again! - Jenni B.

Couldn't have dreamed of a better crew

Jenn and Bree were outstanding! Both ladies were gracious, welcoming and good humored hosts every day. They were very knowledgeable about all things sailing/St.Thomas and St. John related and maintained the perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness with all of us. Jenn gave us a daily game plan about stops, sails and activities each morning and was always eager for our feedback and open to changes. We had a great mix of activities - hiking one day, hitting a beach at 2 or 3 stops, tubing twice, paddle boarding, a smidge of shopping and lots of off-the boat swimming and snorkeling. Jenn even found live music on another chartered boat and "dinghyed" us over to listen. We all agreed our favorite part was sailing and being on the open water! Our 15 yo daughter claimed a spot right next to Jenn for each sail so she could chat, ask questions and have the best view. Bree is a phenomenal chef! Hands down outstanding, 5-star meals every time! She managed to compile all of our different likes/tastes into beautiful mealtime presentations. She also cooked with a healthy note - we always had salads, smoothies and fresh fruits and veggies, which many of us appreciated. In addition, Bree was unbelievably accommodating and adjusted meals for our very picky 12yo eater. Lastly, Bree was a wonderful bartender and mixologist - she always put a fun spin on our favorites and gave us something new to try (Ask for her French 75 with lemongrass simple syrup or the Passion Fruit Margarita). Finally, and most important to us as parents, Jenn and Bree gave our three kids oodles of attention, spoke to and treated them with respect, and patiently answered a million questions. Our 7yo was completely smitten with Bree and said to me when we got home, "Why do we have to leave when we just made friends with them?" Lots and lots of love for this crew! We couldn't have dreamed of a better crew. - Meg S.

Hands down best vacation ever

Wanted to let you just how impressed we were with EVERYTHING on Barefeet charterlast week. And when I say everything, I mean everything. Highlights: Meeting Herman the 140 years+ old turtle Watching Capt. Jenn and Bree swim with a mom and Baby Dolphin (see below) Eating, drinking, laughing - repeat every day! A little competition Bar Crawl on the Boat - complete with a Congo Line (my crew is crazy) Food was amazing It was absolutely hands down the BEST VACATION EVER AND BEST BIRTHDAY EVER! We made two new friends and will sail with them again- FOR SURE. I just have to start planning the next trip! Let me know if anyone ever needs a review! I will gladly make a high recommendation Thank you for working with me and making this all come together. Carla

Broker provided survey

Crew Friendliness: Jenn and Bree were fabulous. They exuded warmth and friendliness and made all of us feel most welcome onboard. Mac (7) fell in love with our hosts and they with him. Crew Knowledge: We felt completely at ease with both crew members. It was readily apparent they knew what they were doing. Quality of Service: Considering there were 10 guests and just two crew members, the service was outstanding. Jenn and Bree worked tirelessly to insure we never lacked for anything. They were unfailingly pleasant, polite, friendly and helpful. The Professionalism of Crew: Jenn was an excellent captain and Bree an outstanding chef. Our meals were marvelous and varied. Bree went out of her way, over and above trying to please our Graham (12) who is the pickiest eater I could ever imagine. Graham was a recalcitrant eater throughout the trip but Bree never stopped trying and was always pleasant about it. She even gave Graham a two minute briefing on why he should eat fruits and vegetables. I do not think it sunk in to Graham but I was enthralled. I decided that minute to continue eating fruits and veggies when I returned home. Value of the Cost + Expenses Charter: For this “once in a lifetime” celebration, we accepted the financial expense involved: charter, gratuity, trip insurance, taxis to and from the Marina plus flights for three. It was a significant investment but one which made us both quite happy. On-Board Cuisine: Outstanding!!!! Bree served so many delicious and varied meals (and oh, so much food) that our eyes popped – shortly before our stomachs! Everything was delicious. Destination / Location: We enjoyed the many locations we visited on St. Thomas and St. John though we surely missed revisiting our favorite BVI destinations. Having sailed the USVI the last two times, I would now be reluctant to charter again before the BVI reopens for business. Water-Sports: Barefeet Retreat had a large mat it put out behind the boat which the kids loved. Jenn took them tubing on two occasions and they snorkeled throughout the trip. The noodles were most welcomed by the adults. Shaun and Hayden also used the paddleboard on a couple of occasions. Mary even rode the tube once. Overall Satisfaction: High, high, high. We loved Jenn and Bree. The catamaran was roomy enough for 10 and I can vouch for the ample size of our shower. Everything on board was quite comfortable.
