We could not have said it better ourselves…a truly special place, secluded and tranquil, nestled among the palms of a coconut plantation, Villa Tortuga is your beachfront hidden treasure on miles of pristine, uncrowded beach.
ABOUT THE HOUSE
Villa Tortuga,(formerly Casa Amarilla), is a private beachfront residence in the exclusive gated development of Playa Las Tortugas on the Riviera Nayarit - a scenic drive of less than two hours from Puerto Vallarta through old growth jungle, beautiful countryside and quaint towns. Villa Tortuga’s secluded location, assures your peace, privacy, and a vacation like none you have had before.
If you have ever dreamed of getting away from it all to your own private paradise, this is the real-life equivalent. You would need to search far and wide to find the combination of privacy, serenity and yet activity possibilities that await you here. Villa Tortuga is easily accessible by car or a private shuttle we will be happy to arrange.
The beach is an eco-preserve with an adjacent 1100 acre estuary. Villa Tortuga is one of only 13 homes there. Gently nestled amoung beautiful tropical gardens and coconut palms, at over 3700 sq. ft, it is one of the most spacious, well-appointed and luxurious homes in the development.
The house is big, open, airy and right on the beach. The open floorplan lends itself to hosting families and multiple couples up to a maximum occupancy of 8 people including children. The 3 bedroom suites are spacious, beautifully decorated and well-separated from one another. Each bedroom suite is separately air-conditioned and has its own unique magnificent views, private bath and terrace/balcony. Upgraded linens, rbes, pillows and hand made organic soaps are found in every room.
The Grand Master Suite, is located on the second floor with a commanding view of ocean. It is decorated in a carefully designed Safari theme with a King size bed. Spa-quality plush robes and disposable slippers are there for your convenience. The bath has “his and her” custom made marble sinks and the spacious shower has a magnificent view of the palms and ocean below.
The beautifully decorated Serenity Suite has a King bed and is located on the lower level with a garden view. The bath is large and the shower has wonderful views of the beach.
The Surfer Suite also is located on the lower level of the house with views on two sides to the beach. It has a Queen bed and is the most private of the suites with an independent access just off of the pool.
The private pool is located on the beach side of the house, just outside the living room, with incredible 180 degree views of the beach and crashing surf. You can watch the kids play in the pool from the palapa, outdoor living room or inside the house.
The gourmet kitchen has most modern amenities including granite countertops, a stainless steel, side-by-side refrigerator and freezer, dishwasher, microwave and numerous small appliances. Bottled water for drinking and cooking are provided.
The dining room seats 6-8, has dramatic ocean views, and opens directly to the beach.
The outdoor dining palapa represents the best in “laid back” outdoor Mexican living. Enjoy the views, fresh air and tropical breezes while you dine al-fresco or sip your favorite drink as you leisurely converse with friends or family. You can use it as a quiet shady retreat to lounge or read a book. If you have more ambition, you can also fire up the gas barbeque and watch the spectacular sunsets in the evening.
A large outdoor living room is located between the house and the pool. Shaded by the overhanging roof it has a large cushioned bench with plenty of seating.
Don’t think being in a remote paradise means being unattended. You will be secluded, yet pampered. Gabriel, the property manager, can arrange everything - from in-house massages, excursions, meals to just about everything else you are likely to need. There is a satellite wireless internet connection and a phone that you can make and receive calls using a prepaid phone card available from Gabriel. Your cell phone will probably not work here at the house itself, but you can usually get a signal on the beach. There is a television and a DVD player with a large selection of DVDs with many suitable for younger children. For those with very young children, a "pack-n-go" portable crib and highchair are available. Standard daily maid service is included. Meal preparation, de-luxe maid and laundry services are available as well for an additional cost.
PLAYA LAS TORTUGAS Turtle Beach) is the nesting habitat of several species of sea turtles. Playa Las Tortugas enjoys a mild tropical climate with an average year-round day temperature of 77° F (25 ºC) and 350 days of sunshine a year.
In season, Humpback whales migrate just offshore occasionally breaching and dolphins play nearby both easily visible from the beach. The birds and wildlife are abundant. Tropical birds and flowers such as the blooming plumeria add sounds and aromas to complete the scene. Spectacular photo opportunities abound, so bring your camera!

What a Beautiful Location!
What a Beautiful Location!
Arrived for our second visit to this location and again found it to be amazing. This year we stayed at Villa Tortuga with two couples who have never been to Mexico. We found Villa Tortuga comfortable for 6 and well furnished and stocked with the items needed. Beds were comfortable and everything was clean. Home could use some maintenance but still very acceptable at this time. We enjoyed the small patio pool but really spent more time at the community pool which we found to be great. Might as well have been our private pool because rarely was anyone else there. The beach was amazing never more than a couple of other people on it. Boogie Boarding in the waves was a blast along with releasing the turtles and looking for nests each night being some of the highlights of the trip. Took two excursions one to El Cora Waterfall and one to the Thursday market at La Penita both were well worth the time to go and made for a nice get away. Lunch at Plantanitos is always a blast. We love the local restaurants and the local craft salesmen, they were very pleasant which made it fun to buy jewelry from them. The staff at the property was fantastic and I can not say enough about how helpful everyone was. Chela was our cook, she is fantastic, the only complaint I can make is that there was so much good food that we were unable to eat it all! Pasquale was fantastic, excellent English and answered all questions or concerns we had, he provided everything we requested in a timely manner. We made our reservations through Marianne and found everything to be exactly as stated. We were fortunate enough to meet Marianne and found her to be a very nice lady and will look forward to working with her again in the future. The location is very remote but also very safe, never locked a door during our stay. If there is a negative to the location it is the no-see-ums, for those who react to them it is miserable so take the needed precautions for these nasty biting bugs! That said this is a small complaint in comparison to the excellent experience we enjoyed here over two separate visits. We are already planning a return trip next year! Thanks to everyone that made our vacation so memorable!

Our stay at Villa Tortuga was wonderful! The house is lovely, amazingly close to the beach, completely comfortable, with a gazebo perfectly placed for enjoying sunsets over the Pacific. And it remains cool both in the house and in the shade of the gazebo (which is equipped with an overhead fan). The food was delicious and abundant (our daughter particularly liked all the terrific desserts!). Great bird-watching, both at the Villa and on our day trip to La Tovara, which I would recommend. Another fun day trip is to the market at La Penita. Overall, a fantastic vacation.
