About Paul Hatch

The Hatch family (Karin, Paul, Nan & Mike) live in Trinidad, the southernmost island of the Caribbean chain. Las Tortugas is our vacation home, which we all helped to build and maintain.

Paul Hatch purchased this villa in 2001

Why Paul Hatch chose Grenada

The property is built around a magnificent view of nearby Paradise Beach, picturesque Sandy Island, and the islands of the southern Grenadines, which you can enjoy from just about anywhere in the villa or pool deck area.

What makes this villa unique

Las Tortugas is private, but provides easy access via a paved pathway to Paradise Beach, a calm sandy bay, arguably the best on Carriacou, where you can stroll, tan or swim, within easy access to food and refreshments at several nearby beach bars. The infinity pool at the villa provides a relaxing spot to overlook the bay, and the pool deck is complete with an outdoor BBQ, bar and gazebo for outdoor dining or entertainment.

Home from home in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Las Tortugas for five nights in early February for Carnival in Carriacou. This is obviously a much loved home which has been thoughtfully equipped and beautifully decorated, rather than just a rental property. The position on a hillside overlooking Paradise Beach (the best in Carriacou) is absolutely stunning, with views of the tiny white sand Sandy Island in the foreground and beyond to Union Island and many other islands in the Grenadines chain shimmering in a beautiful turquoise sea. It's probably THE best view we have ever rented! The villa comes with a free car which was great for exploring, shopping and going out to dine. The house is staffed by the wonderful Godfrey, lovingly known as our "house-husband" who came in every morning to do the dishes, make the bed and keep everything shipshape. He was a mine of information and his lovely wife Leslie-Ann took us food shopping in Hillsborough on our first day and helped settle us in. She even managed to purchase a noodle for us for the gorgeous infinity pool as we had left ours behind. The house has a Mexican flavour with bright bed coverings and tablecloths, and lots of wonderful murals and beautifully hand painted fish and turtles on furniture, walls and even a guitar. Being on a hillside meant it caught the breezes even in the middle of the day, so we didn't use the a/c once. We highly recommend this villa which us one of a very few on Carriacou that features a pool. We plan to return.

Spectacular location ! A lot of charm !

  • 5 of 5

We came to Las Tortugas, looking for a true caribbean atmosphere and more than beaches, for a family reunion. We were spoilt with a fantastic villa, mexican style with a nice caribbean touch, a spectacular view on the bay and Grenadines Islands, and all the opportunities for some activity that we were aiming for (hiking, diving, touring the island, and even carnival this year). We have rent villas all over the caribbean for many years and Las Tortugas is definitely the place we enjoyed the most. In addition to the villa, Godfrey was very helpful and caring when we needed some attention.

As one of the poem i discovered there said,

"Life can be hard at times, it's true

But I spent mine in Carriacou"

Las Tortugas (The Turtles) is a comfortable seafront home featuring twin master bedrooms. The villa is perched on a small, breezy hill overlooking Paradise beach and the Carriacou Marine Park . It is built around a magnificent view, which includes Paradise beach, a network of coral reefs, and the islands of the southern Grenadines.

Set on almost an acre of hillside, its location affords privacy, while providing easy access to the mile-long white sands of Paradise Beach. This spacious Grenadines Villa is furnished in Southwestern American style, accented with hand painted murals and accessories, and is perfect for couples, families, and friends looking for privacy, comfort and relaxation.

At Las Tortugas you can relax with a good rum punch and look out at a truly breathtaking view. You can arrange to Scuba dive with one of the diving establishments on the island, or snorkel the reef directly below the house, having examined it from the veranda to make sure it looks interesting. You can arrange to visit the Tobago Keys, lovely Palm Island or the famous PSV (Petit St. Vincent). Our man, Godfrey, who is in attendance daily can arrange these excursions for you.

If fishing is your thing, you can arrange a trip with one of the fishermen on the beach. Once more, Godfrey will be there to guide you! You can also arrange a visit to Sandy Island, a famous beauty spot across the bay.

It’s nice to have wheels to explore the island and a 4WD rental car is included with the Villa.

You can enjoy sophisticated dining at the Roundhouse, Moringa, or Slipway restaurants, and for more casual dining there is pizza at the Lazy Turtle, or local fare and culture at the Lambi Queen in Harveyvale. The main town of Hillsborough is home to a tiny but interesting museum, which is well worth a visit, and Hillsborough itself is one of the few remaining authentic old West Indian towns – just like they used to be in the other islands (about 70 years ago!).

Windward on the East coast of the island, is the center of the local boat building industry, and has to be one of the last places in the world where you can actually see sailing vessels being careened in the old way. Talk to the locals. They are pleasant people, eager to share their knowledge.
