“Wonderful Family Vacation! Beautiful Location!”
This was probably one of the best homes we have stayed in with our family. 8 adults and 3 children under the age of 4. Plenty of room for everyone. Pool used every day, dock and gazebo with hammock beautiful. Pictures do not do justice to the house. Vince was very easy to work with and very helpful with information. Since we were getting in late afternoon on a Saturday we used Eddie from the cayman shopping service and he had delivered everything before we arrived and was also very helpful. We used McCurley's for our car rental. It was easy for them to pick us up at the airport and they had three vehicles waiting for us at Far Tortuga. Chisholms Market is walkable from the house, it has sundry items, milk etc. Good place to get an ice cream bar! We all loved sting ray city and the turtle farm. We tried the botanical gardens but maybe a different time of year, it seemed as if there were 9 million mosquitos. As others have stated Rum Point is close and it was a great beach area to take the kids and have lunch. We would definitely recommend this house and area for anyone! Thank you Vince!
“One of the Best!”
My group of 8 girlfriends have been traveling together for 19 years, and have stayed in many great villas in the Caribbean. Far Tortuga has got to be one of the best. Vince was great in preparing us for the trip, sending us information and recommendations prior to our departure. Based on one of his suggestions, we arranged to be picked up at the airport(with all our luggage) and driven the to the house, about a 40 minute drive, where our mini-van was waiting for us. Along the way, our driver stopped to let us pick up groceries and such--so we didn't have to go back out to look for supplies after arriving. Soon, we were free to enjoy the house--and what a wonderful place it was! Large, clean, beautifully appointed rooms and a great kitchen. We loved the 2 refrigerators! Far Tortuga has such a lovely, personal touch. And that was just the interior. Outside was a gorgeous ocean view that we enjoyed each day from the pool deck or from out at the end of the long dock, under the gazebo. Just a short drive up the road was Rum Point, where we spent time at the beach, the Wreck Bar, and Kaibo. One day we booked a private boat to explore the area, snorkel, and visit Sting Ray City (don't miss!). Some of us went hiking at the nearby Mastic Trail, and we also found time to head out to the East End, to the Reef, for drinks, and to Tukka, for dinner (excellent). It was a great week of fun and relaxation, made all the better because of this beautiful home. Many thanks to Debanne and Vince.
“Heavenly Retreat at Far Tortuga”
This was the best couples retreat my husband and I have had. We shared this beautiful, well equipped home with 2 other couples. The location near Rum Point is away from the hustle and bustle of Georgetown and the Cruise Ships. Fishing, snorkeling and diving is the best in Grand Cayman and all at your fingertips! The pier and gazebo is an added bonus to make this the perfect vacation spot for all.
“My family LOVES Far Tortuga!”
My family and I (6 adults, 2 toddlers) had an amazing week at Far Tortuga! Booking was simple, and Vince was easy to work with. We were looking for a quiet, peaceful week, and definitely got what we were looking for at this beautiful location on the North side. We enjoyed being "away from it all", and spent all but one day on the North side entirely. We cooked many meals in the full kitchen, then dined with the beautiful ocean view in front of us. We all enjoyed a little relaxation in the gazebo and on the hammock. The pool is also a wonderful feature, especially for little ones. Vince is not kidding when he says some of the best snorkeling on the island is right off the dock of Far Tortuga. We went scuba diving on the North wall 6 times during our stay, and what we saw snorkeling at Far Tortuga was just as beautiful as the dives (only on a smaller scale). Rum Point and KaiBo (both on the North Side, 7-10 min. from Far Tortuga) both offer island BBQs certain nights of the week with ocean front dining. KaiBo was good for a quick lunch and bucket of Cayman beer. Rum Point also offers tours to Sting Ray City without having to drive 45-60 min. to the 7 Mile Beach area. For diving, we recommend Tom at Cayman Marine Lab. Vince sent us lots of information before our stay (about the house, car rentals, grocery shopping, etc.) which made it easy for us to get settled on our first day. Thanks for the tip about grocery shopping on our way in on Saturday, as many places are closed on Sundays. Vince also followed up with us after our stay to make sure that all was as expected during our stay. We hope to make it back to Far Tortuga some day!
“Best Vacation Ever!”
Hi Vince, Roger and I, and our entire family would like to thank you so very much for allowing us to use your house for our vacation! We had one of the best vacations that we have ever had, and it was thanks to you and DebAnn for providing the wonderful house to help make our time in Grand Cayman the best! You have everything possible in the house to make it user friendly and so comfy! Every single person you recommended we get in touch with for any of our needs was right on! I don’t think we have ever met so many nice people! Alex was able to find someone to cook for us since your Marie was not around. We fell in love with who she found for us, Linda Jackson was her name. She brought her cousin Roxy with her each morning, and they added so much to our vacation…we felt they were part of our family when we left. I would highly recommend Linda again. Linda and Roxy ended up making a Caymanian dinner for us one night and ended up babysitting another. We all wished we could have taken them home with us. We could go on and on about our experiences there but we know you hear this from everyone! It was absolutely the perfect vacation spot and we thank you for sharing it with us. We also loved DebAnn’s art work…she is very talented! Thank you for everything…you made wonderful memories possible for us…it was even worth turning 70 to be able to do this vacation!
We have just returned from 10 days at Far Tortuga celebrating our 55th anniversary with our children, grandchildren and one great grandchild. It was a perfect time and place for us to be together. Everyone had something to do - snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, reading or just relaxing on the hammock on the dock. We loved the layout of the house. It had plenty of space for all of us to share. We visited Stingray City, Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, Rum Point and several local restaurants. All were great and much enjoyed. The management company on the island is wonderful -- they took care of our needs quickly and efficiently. Great service when you are away from home. Jennifer even stopped by to say good-bye on Saturday. She is great! Thanks again Vince and Debanne for sharing your home with our family.
Debanne, Vince, Thank you so much for opening our home to use. Everyone had a wonderful time. The snorkeling was the best we have ever seen. All enjoyed the kayaks, pool, and your wonderful home. Loved Debanne art work. We had a small problem with a lock and the management company responded in 10 minutes(If you ever rented a villa you know how important that is). Hope to return next year.
“A great vacation”
We all had a terrific time in Grand Cayman, and Far Tortuga was the perfect place from which to enjoy that time. I have rented several places in the Caribbean for the family over the years. Yours was right up there with the best of them. And when it came to organization and clarity of what to expect and how to get things done, your place was by far the best experience we have had. No hassles, a clean and ready to use house with quick, pleasant responses to all calls and inquiries. And getting the stove replaced within a day was just short of unbelievable. You and your management team are to be congratulated for such remarkable efficiency. We would happily rent your place again. And I would recommend that anyone looking for a great vacation on a wonderful Caribbean island, consider Far Tortuga villa. You will not be disappointed.
“As described, perfect.”
It is all that Vince and his wife describe. All updated and beautifully maintained. No worries, no unknowns. Lots of room and all decorated exquisitely. Felt like our own home, not some hotel. We ate 3 meals a day in house and loved it. Nothing like having your own cooks, waitresses, and cleanup staff. 1/3 the costs and no noise, no waiting, no tipping, and always get the best table in the place. Compare Villas and hotels and you will see that villas like this one are hands down better in every respect.
“Far Tortuga is a 10!”
Far Tortuga exceeded the expectations of everyone in our group of 13. The location is perfect for those who want a quiet, peaceful time on the island. The house was spacious - there was plenty of room for everyone to spend time together and large enough for people to spend time apart from one another. The property was clean and very well maintained. The kitchen was extraordinarily well stocked and had all the dishes, pots, pans, utensils and appliances we could possibly need. There were plenty of towels and the washer and dryer was a great convenience. Anything we needed was supplied - even a high chair and pack-n-play for our 9 month old grandchild. The snorkeling was great and we never got tired of seeing the profusion of fish and coral right behind the house. We took two excursions - to Stingray City (a great treat) and the Turtle Farm (I was wary but it turned out to be great.) Other than that, snorkeling, shell collecting, crab watching, kayaking, walks on the beach, spending time in the pool, and just lazing around were more than enough for us to have a great, great vacation. The gazebo became our go to place to hang out when we weren't in or on the water. The cooling breezes made it a pleasant place to rest, gaze out at the water, sip a drink or take in a sunrise or sunset. All in all, Far Tortuga is a 10!
