Provisioning a Villa (WI, STT and I think STJ too)

Received email from my Property Manager who has provided excellent review and recommendation for provisioning services of http://www.grocerygoddesses.com/
"Seemed like EVERYBODY ordered provisions, too, and we were meeting Julie of Grocery Goddesses nearly every day to load up the truck with food. They were terrific, by the way--never missed a beat, all orders perfectly and professionally filled, and all delivered at 10:45 AM sharp--no waiting around for them. Julie even delivered a huge order on Christmas morning, 2 on Boxing Day, and one on Christmas Eve."
We used their services for a villa on STT in '07 and they were wonderful! I sent them a spreadsheet with everything we wanted and how we wanted it and even a list of how much of what beverages needed to go in the fridge. Everything was done perfectly! They even thought of something we didn't - that we had a martini drinker with us - so they put the Tanqueray in the freezer and amde sure to shill up the olives We gave them a list of how many other beverages to put in the fridge as I had a bad experience with another provisioner who put it ALL in the fridge and the fridge conked out on us from working too hard to cool off all of that warm soda, beer and water. Anyway, I hearily recommend the GGs and understand that they will meet you at the car ferry or passenger ferry with your stuff if you are jumping off from STT for another island - they even provide coolers. I also like the way they price - a percentage of the cost of the items purchased rather than an hourly rate.
I've spoken with them on the phone regarding provisioning for STJ. They will meet you at the barge or ferry dock and set you up. This would work nicely for us if we had a big group. Nice people.
