We were very fortunate winners of a trip for four to NZ, as part of the prize we had two days sailing and one night on a yacht supplied by Gourmet Sailing. We had the best time, Milo and Kim went out of their way to provide a very friendly service, going above and beyond any expectations we had. We were waited on hand and foot, and were extremely well fed and watered by their amaZinly delicious food. Nothing was too much trouble. We felt like V.I.P's....couldn't recommend more for a truly wonderful experience in am absolutely
stunning scenic part of the world.....this experience will be remembered fondly for years and years to come.... lovely memories for us to treasure. THANK YOU MILO AND KIM

We had a fabulous, personalised experience for my partners 30th Birthday, with Gourmet Sailing. It was only the two of us on holidays and Milo and Kimberly went above and beyond in making sure it was a very special day for my partner and I.
The food was absolutely amazing and made to our personalised taste. We are true food lovers and coming from Melbourne, I believe this says a lot.
Milo & Kimberly went out of their way for us, in so many instances, which was not only on the day of our sail. They were incredibly gracious, inviting and warm. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone.
Thank you so much, once again.

Nadia, thank you for taking the time to write your review. We really enjoyed meeting you two, and it is inspiring to see that romance is still such a valued treasure in today's fast paced world. Angela appreciated your feedback on the food, especially the mention of Melbourne. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in New Zealand, and look forward to seeing you again sometime.

When I decided it was time to get engaged, the yacht Simply Wild was the only choice to take us to the Abel Tasman National Park, fine food and company made the adventure even more special.
So much love & fun shared made this an experience we will never forget.

Thanks Milo & Kim

Sailing with Milo and Kimberley on the beautiful 'Simply Wild' Beneteau in Nelsons' lovely waters is an experience not to forget. They are the most lovely of hosts who just enjoy sharing themselves with guests. The Abel Tasman and Tasman Bay are certainly on of NZs' nicest and safest areas to be sailing in. Wearing just boardshorts for a whole afternoon crossing from Anchorage Bay to Nelson city was a lovely experience, with a warm breeze pushing us along at good speed.

Friday week ago, I arranged a surprise 50th birthday party for my partner on board Gourmet Salings 65ft Ketch. What a fantastic night, we had a 3 course gourmet meal for the 24 guests that was simply outstanding, Duck Confite, the best I have ever tasted and service that was second to none, Milo, Kimberly and his team provided a wonderful experience, sailing around the harbour and out through the cut, we dropped anchor near Haulashore Island where we had dinner, the sea was flat, the sun streaming in and what a view back towards Nelson, simply stunning. Milo and his team were great to work with leading up to the event, JoJo made sure everything was perfect right down to the decorations and decking the cabin out for the overnight stay.

Everyone on board was pampered with great wine, fantastic food and we were made to feel like the yacht was ours for a day. What an experience, fantastic hosts!

If you are looking for something that will be truly memorable then I suggest this is the answer. it will certainly stay in the memories of everyone that was aboard and a trip out on Tasman Bay will remind you of how beautiful Nelson is. Thanks Milo and Kimberly we will be back for another experience soon
