THE CREW

ROB

Born in South Africa and growing up on the East coast of Kwa Zulu Natal, Rob has been a “water boy” his whole life. He is an accomplished sailor with over 30,000 sea miles under his belt on a range of vessels. This was achieved through skippering yachts and cruising along the African coast. Together with his family, he also spent four years cruising the East Coast of Africa, Indian Ocean, SE Asia, Indonesia, and Australia. 

Rob has a passion for the ocean, and loves water sports. He is a qualified life saver, advanced diver and fisherman with a particular passion for salt water flyfishing. He loves to go out and hopefully return with something delicious to toss on the BBQ. Mountaineering is Rob's other passion and he has hours of adventures on mountains spanning the globe.

 

When Rob is not out skippering and entertaining, you will see him working in the galley with Belinda. Cocktails and the BBQ are part of Rob’s regime, and he knows the perfect story to tell while you enjoy them!

BELINDA

Born and raised outside of Durban, South Africa Belinda has spent her life close to the sea, camping, swimming, scuba diving and fishing as well as hiking and climbing the inland Drakensberg mountains. She is a ‘people’s person’ and in addition to her culinary training, is also trained as a professional nurse, specializing in maternity. 

 

Belinda is a passionate cook who has been influenced by travel and time spent in many different countries. She is particularly fond of Asian cuisine, Thailand, Malaysia, and Vietnam, but also enjoys the Indian and Mediterranean influences. She loves to cook the ‘catch of the day’ as provided by Rob and pair it with local, fresh, seasonal ingredients. She enjoys bright and bold flavors, especially citrus notes which do well to compliment the Caribbean climate.

 

Waking up to fresh morning coffee and watching the sun set with drinks and appetizers are the absolute essence of life aboard and she can’t wait to welcome you!

REVIEWS

MARCH 2022 - BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS

We are a group of four couples who decided to charter a catamaran for a special vacation and birthday celebration. The Belle Vie and her crew, Rob and Belinda, far exceeded our expectations. The Belle Vie is fairly new and in excellent condition. It is clean and comfortable, with plenty of room for four couples and the crew. There are five cabins – 4 with queen beds and a bunk cabin where the crew slept. The common spaces were terrific, from the cushioned bow where we could relax in the sun or enjoy a beverage at the table to the flybridge, which had a table and seating big enough for our entire group to enjoy cocktails and snacks before dinner while enjoying the view. On the main level are a table that can be configured in numerous ways and bench seats for lounging. The owners have taken care to include cozy cushions and provided custom water bottles and luggage tags for each of us.

Our captain, Rob, and cook, Belinda, were top-notch!. Rob arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the ferry and deliver us to the dock with rum punch along the way, and Belinda laid out an amazing luncheon spread to start our charter with a bang. Rob made reservations for lunch at Cooper Island and arranged for us to rent scooters on Anegada. He took us to all of the places we wanted to go and shuttled us to and from the yacht on the dinghy.

Rob’s energy and enthusiasm, generosity, and good humor helped make every day an adventure. We loved the snorkeling, underwater scooters, wakeboarding, hikes, and the cuddle puddle. Our excursions to the baths, the bubbly pool, and the iconic places such as Willie T’s, the Soggy Dollar, Hendo’s Hideout, and Foxy’s were amazing. We loved our day on Anegada, where we toured on scooters and then did a two-hour excursion with Kelly’s Tours to snorkel at conch island and over the reefs and see the flamingos. Rob was always there to proactively suggest something fun or make us a cocktail.

Belinda is the best cook ever! The meals she made in the galley space were incredible. From breakfast through dinner, we enjoyed exquisitely prepared food from eggs and bacon with mimosas to burgers and fish tacos to pan-seared beef and salmon. Desserts included homemade tiramisu, custards with fruit, and an outstanding carrot cake! B is also a registered nurse and tended to our various cuts and scrapes along the way. 

Both Rob and Belinda were kind, patient, engaging, fun, and great conversationalists. We especially loved our sing-along night when they joined in to sing some of their favorite songs with us. They truly made this trip a once-in-a-lifetime experience we will all treasure for years to come! Thank you!

APRIL 2022 - THE BAHAMAS VIRGIN ISLANDS

THANK YOU for an amazing trip and the wonderful experiences. 

 

We all had a blast and felt very blessed to have you be our hosts for the week.  The food was amazing and the many stops between each meal were welcomed adventures.  From jumping off Will T's, to meandering through the Baths, to New Years on Anegada...we all had a ball!!  I can assure you this trip will be talked about for many, many years!  

 

Thank you again for your hospitality and always offering to help make our trip 5 star!

DECEMBER 2021 - BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS

What a glorious time my family had sailing with you in the BVI’s!  As we anticipate winter temps and probable frozen precip this evening, we are longing for Belle Vie, your hospitality and those warm, sunny islands!!  I don’t think we can ever top the fun times and adventures we had with you.  Thank you so much for giving all of us the trip of a lifetime.  We had such fun!!!

Both of you were always right on hand to offer hospitality and adventures. What a fabulous array of delicious meals the “master chef” prepared.  And the Captain was always spot on with a water toy or adventure.  Indeed we were blessed to be on Belle Vie with the two of you, who made our trip so memorable.

NOVEMBER 2021 - BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS

I want to first say that Rob and Belinda were absolutely amazing. The food and service were second to none. I feel as though they did everything in their power to make sure that we had the best experience we could have . . . and we did. That was all thanks to them. They are just two genuinely great people who we all enjoyed spending time with.
