Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bath 1300 sq ft modern caribbean beachouse.

Tortuga Beach House is truly heaven on earth! The newest member of West Bay Village welcomes you to Roatan's beautiful West Bay

Beach. This newly built second level property is furnished with local Honduran furniture and the walls are adorned with art done by local artists.

Tortuga is only steps away from from some of the

most incredible snorkeling you will find anywhere in beautiful Caribbean blue waters.

This new house has been finished with all the modern conveniences. The kitchen is finished with Honduran wood cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. The gas stove is a cook's dream, and the dishwasher assures that you spend your vacation time relaxing, not doing dishes. There is a breakfast bar area with stools, plus a dining area where you can enjoy local seafood.

The living room and dining areas are very spacious with fantastic vaulted ceilings and big windows. The comfortable furnishings make a great space to relax with the new flat screen TV and DVD player at the end of the day. Wifi is available in Tortuga at no extra cost. A beautiful wood door leads from the living room to the covered deck. The gorgeous turquoise waters of the Caribbean can be seen as you relax on one of the comfortable deck chairs. This is the perfect spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening cocktail. New to Tortuga for Christmas 2014 is a spectacular rooftop deck accessible via the spiral staircase. Sunrise, sunset, an afternoon nap in the hammock or possibly a romantic evening dinner under the stars. We are confident this will be a guest favorite.

The master bedroom is furnished with a beautiful and comfortable queen size bed. The ensuite bath boasts twin sinks in a travertine tiled vanity. The combination tub and shower surround is tiled with this same beautiful tile. The second bedroom is also very spacious and furnished with twin beds that can be configured into a king size bed. The guest bathroom is accessible from the second bathroom or main hallway. This bathroom has an incredible tiled walk-in shower and vanity with the same travertine as the master bath. All rooms have ceiling fans and air conditioning units, but you will probably find that the trade winds will keep you just as cool.

There is 24 hour security at West Bay Village, a gardener to tend the beautiful trees, shrubs, and flowers, and weekly maid service. Groceries can be purchased down the road at West Bay Mall. The mall has a great coffee shop and local food options. Across the street are other restaurants, including a sushi bar. Down the beach from Tortuga are other great restaurants to choose from, with many of them offering daily drink and food specials. There's also a fish truck that visits West Bay Village every week. There are several dive shops close by where you can sign up for some world class diving. You can catch a water taxi on the beach and head into West End to experience the shopping, dining, and nightlife there. You can also get a taxi to drive you there, but try the water taxi at least once. It's a great way to see some of the beautiful homes and resorts on the island.

What makes this apartment unique

Location! Location!

Incomparable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed many places on the island over the years, including the resort next door. This place blows all others away. It looks like a brand new house inside and out. Kitchen is stocked with everything you need in the way of cooking utensils, pots and pans, grill outside, ice trays for keeping stocked up on ice, and even several essential spices and amenities like foil and plenty of kitchen towels. The welcome gifts of coffee and a bag of ice, among other things, was great. There's even a great ocean view from the kitchen sink. The way it is set a few feet back from the hustle and bustle on the beach, while still offering a great view of the beach from the well stocked porch, was perfect. Quiet when you wanted it but close enough that you could go to the house to make a drink while hanging on the beach. All the furniture was extremely comfortable and having 2 bathrooms, even just for 2 people, was great. The roof top balcony is great for sunsets and hanging out any time. Air conditioning worked great and is well maintained. The 1 Living room unit would cool the entire place just fine, but each bedroom had a unit too. Water is always stocked so you never run low. The property management people made us feel right at home and we didn't want for anything at all that was not already there. There was even a basket of sunscreen and bug repellent by the door so you wouldn't forget to lube up on your way out, but the beach area out front was so well maintained that we really didn't notice many biting bugs. The gates out at the road being always closed gave the extra sense of security, and speaking of security, the security guards would usually run ahead of you to open the gates for you to drive out. I can't say enough good things about this place. It quickly became our favorite place to stay on the island and we hope to have the opportunity to stay here again soon. You won't find a better place to stay on West Bay Beach.......or really anywhere on the island. We had a most relaxing and enjoyable week stay here. Thank you for allowing us in your home. It truly feels more like a home than a typical rental or condo.

Heading back to Tortuga Beach House Spring 2017

  • 5 of 5

Excellent holiday! Everything was relaxful and so easy. Owner arranged an airport pick up (no hassle). Professional trusted driver stopped at a well stocked reasonably priced grocery store to pick up all the food & supplies we required. Meal prep was easy as the unit has a fully stocked gourmet kitchen with lots of extras (we are not used to having high quality utensils etc. when staying at other vacation rentals). The apartment is spacious, very clean, very comfortable mattresses and pillows.

Eating our meals on the large porch allowed us a view of the beach and the ocean while getting some shade, cool breeze and some quiet time. After a delicious dinner we made our way up to an incredible rooftop deck for a magnificent view of the stars (StarWalk app, very limited light pollution, privacy). The West Bay Village is professional managed so everything is very well taken care of and we felt safe.

Of course the beach is brilliant and full of life. Too many activities for us to take in but we couldn't get enough of the opportunity to SCUBA dive at such pristine area. World class diving. We were thrilled to find an excellent dive shop (Bananarama - professional, small boats, safety oriented) a couple of minutes down the beach.

We are planning a return visit to Tortuga Beach House in 2017 which really says it all!

Returning to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Last year was our first trip to Roatan and the Tortuga Beach House. After our years of travelling we finally found paradise. From the stunning views of the ocean, the immaculate accommodations, the fantastic scuba diving to the friendly island people, life just does not get better than this. We made the decision to return this year as there really was no other choice.

The owner Mike is very easy to contact and immediately answers all questions. He is genuinely concerned about your stay and ensuring Tortuga is in tip top shape.

The beach in front is stunning in its beauty. Life is very laid back to give you the chance to just escape life and enjoy.

Island House Rentals goes out of their way to ensure that everything detail is looked after. They arranged pickup and departure transportation so once you book Tortuga you have no worries as you are fully looked after.

We are already planning our return trip for next year already.

Roatan is the best kept secret.

Perfect Holiday Location to Reconnect With Family

  • 5 of 5

I arrived from the West and my cousin arrived from the East, together we met at Roatan after not seeing each other for many years. Torgtuga gave us a 'home away from home' atmosphere. This new beach house includes numerous indoor amenities to make a relaxing holiday perfect (including an awesome housekeeper). Outdoor amenities include 24 hour security, groundskeepers and being steps from the world famous West Bay Beach.

A pre-arranged driver was arranged for an airport pick up. With the help of the driver, groceries were purchased at a local supermarket. However, nightly supper was at one of many West Bay or West End restaurants/bars.

Snorkelling on the reef right off the beach was incredible! The coral is so alive with colour and varieties of fish abundant.

This property is vary spacious and CLEAN!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect location / perfect ambiance / beautiful view. The staff were available and very nice but didnt crowd. My wife and I enjoyed plenty of balcony time. I understand they are also adding a stargazing deck which should have magnificent views. We had such a wonderful time - we are going back. For Divers - I used La Roca - local - very small groups and lots of personal touch.

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Tortuga is simply amazing and exactly as the pictures show. Set back one house from the beach, the rooms are large and kitchen very well equipped. There is a great view from the balcony of the beach and dock. There are plenty of beach chairs to enjoy and room along the water. The beach clubs and bulk of Infinity Bays guests are far enough away that we didn’t hear DJ’s or music (we come to the ocean to hear the ocean, not a DJ). The beach is quite busy, but it was never an issue, and venders are much less aggressive than we have experienced in other countries. Dive boats leave throughout the day and there were plenty of great snorkel spots to the West. The location couldn’t get much better.

Mike, the owner, was very helpful; Sam and Ruth, the property managers in Roatan, were awesome; the gardener and security guys were helpful and friendly. The security guys work long shifts and were very appreciative of a cup of coffee in the morning or some fruit in the afternoon.

The island experienced a lengthy power outage while we were there (4pm-8am). Tortuga and the property don’t have a back-up generator, which didn’t bother us. We had brought a flashlight, most of the restaurants have generators and there were candles and battery nightlights in the unit. All part of the island experience.

Cannot say enough good things about Roatan and Tortuga.

West Bay Beach

Tortuga Beach house is the newest member of the West Bay Village family. Tortuga was newly constructed in the fall of 2012. West Bay Village is

an enclave of 7 traditional carribean beach

houses. Tortuga is perfectly located for all of your West Bay Beach activities.

Snorkelling out front......Diving next door.....paradise all around. I have been coming to Roatan for over 20 years. The island ambience, world class diving and the spectacular beach keep me coming back as often as possible.

We have just added two new outdoor living spaces. Off the landing we have added a small deck to store beach towels and allow some space for grilling. From the back landing we have built a spiral staircase leading to a beautiful new roof top deck. The privacy and views will be spectacular. Afternoon nap on the hammock or wine under the night sky!!!
