Mark is turning 60!

"When I was a boy...

one of my favorite memories was of the beautiful Island of Capri and the Quisisana Hotel. Cherished memories were made here with my parents; surrounded by beauty, history, and nature. An only child, I vacationed with my parents and their friends; hearing them gather here to tell stories, share experiences, and dream of the future. The hotel has not changed much, but the boy that learned to dream BIG will return 50 years later to celebrate life, friends, and the realization of so many of those young-boy dreams. Will you join me?"

    Join Mark & Kathleen

    Island of Capri, off the Coast of Naples, Italy

  • Stay with us or own your own. Our main villa has room for some, but it's not big enough for everyone.  You plan your trip, and select your accommodations. Your style, your way, your budget.

  • We are preparing for 3 days of planned celebrations and optional first class excursions. 

  • Once in a lifetime gathering of extremely interesting people from all over the world. Friends of Mark Stross. That includes YOU! 

  • Is Italy on your bucket list?

    Whether you have been there before or always wanted to go, Italy is unforgettable. Perhaps you've done Italy but skipped Capri. Definitely a trip of a lifetime. Our lifetime is limited. What are you waiting for? 

    Villa Carolina

    Villa Carolina will be our base camp. We reserved this large villa where we will welcome our guests most of the time. If you are interested in staying here with us, we'd love to have you. The house can accommodate up to 14 people. This video will give you an idea of the amenities. Email Kathleen for more information at [email protected]. Rooms here are first come, first served. There are of course many many choices throughout this small island. So you can stay wherever you like and still be a part of the parties.

    "Villa Carolina Capri is without any doubt one of the most beautiful and best organized villas in Capri island. Every year we invest in renovating and preserving the traditional Capri design but without compromising the comfort, the leisure and the relaxation offered by the modern technology. You will feel at home in a very exclusive place, thanks to our care (especially of our irreplaceable housekeeper Nicolina!) and to the warm and comfortable design of the villa; you will also feel relaxed right away thanks to the nature, the silence, the breathtaking views that surround the villa and - of course - thanks to the infinity sea view pool, the sauna, the spa, and the wellness and the entertainment areas too!"

    What will we do?

    I want this trip to bring my favorite people together to celebrate our lives, our accomplishments, and our lessons learned. Not an actual "secret society meeting", but kind of like that, but a whole lot more fun. This has been a favorite getaway since Roman times. Bring your toga! "


    I am looking forward to sharing this time with the amazing people who mean the most to Mark. On the terrace or in the garden, we'll have cocktails, fresh food, and relaxation among the natural beauty. Then, I thought we'd steal a yacht, visit the blue grotto, walk around the city, and snatch food from fresh markets. "


    Join us for a few hours, or a few days. You decide. 

    There are so many things to do on Capri. You can visit and join us no matter your budget. Let us know if you are planning on coming. Details will follow as we see how many will be joining us.

    Let us know if you are a "yes, we're in", a "not sure", or "sorry, can't make it". Email us at [email protected]
