Family Owned & Operated

Zach and Carrie met on the beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2010. Zach had a career living and working as a chef on motor yachts traveling the world, while Carrie lived and worked in Ft. Lauderdale raising her boys, Cody and Tyler.

The connection they had turned into a box of postcards from Zach’s many travels along with phone calls and Skype conversations. After three years of postcards, and meeting each other in remote islands in the Caribbean, Zach and Carrie decided they no longer wanted to be apart.

Home away from home...
