Very Good


Reviewed 25 May 2011

A very beautiful home with wonderful decks to sit and enjoy the ocean. The pool was great for those hot, humid days. The property managers were extremely helpful showing us to the property and providing information about the island. The kitchen has everything you need to make a meal but many great restuarants are close by too. There is great diving and snorkling right off the property.

“Adventure in Paradise”

Reviewed 18 May 2011

How does one describe Paradise?Two words~Far Tortuga! We spent 10 fascinating &adventurous; days at this lovely home above the coral reefs & Caribbean, watching hummingbirds & iguanas, luxuriating in the Infinity Pool, feeling warm trade winds & enjoying the overwhelming amenities this home provides.The beautifully appointed kitchen, spacious living area w/ ocean view, & lanai, master bedroom w/ sliding door providing views of the ocean,& the private,yet secure location made us never want to leave! We snorkled & kayaked from the First Bight lagoon &off; the coral outcrops below the deck, in waters abounding w/Caribbean sealife.We were almost content to just repose in the pool,but adventure beckoned & we toured West End/ West Bay~main tourist & diving areas,w/Jimmy Buffet atmosphere. Our favorite was the east end,less developed & quieter.We stopped to visit BJ at at Bj's Backyard restaurant/bar in the picturesque town of Oak Ridge,chatted w/friendly folks in the Garifuna village of Punta Gorda, & loved dining at La Sirena (The asylum), locally called Jimmy's, in Camp Bay. Eating lobster & grouper on a deck over the Caribbean while watching sea turtles swim below & the exquisite Honduran sunset was the best birthday ever!!. We met wonderful folks 0n our Far Tortuga stay, from local islanders born on Roatan to american exPatriots & of other nationalities who now make this island their home. Be sure to visit Butch &Sherry; Wade @the Bulk Gourmet in French Harbour for wonderful speciality foods & wine, &much; more. Far Tortuga is a treasure we want to certainly return to for our next visit to Roatan. We will certainly include Scuba Diving then, as Roatan is the premier dive spot on the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world. . Truly a Caribbean Paradise & beyond even the accurate listing description. Far Tortuga is the vacation home of your dreams on Roatan. Thank you Karl & Anne for making this lifestyle dream a reality for us!

“Perfect vacation spot!”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2011

All of the previous reviews are dead-on. My husband and I stayed here for 10 days for our belated honeymoon. Two friends joined us for part of our stay. It was just the perfect spot. Although there are many amazing things to do in Roatan, our most enjoyable times were simply relaxing in First Bight! We snorkeled right in front of the house, used to kayaks to cruise around and do a little fly fishing, cooked fresh seafood meals every night, and relaxed by the pool and just enjoyed the scenary. Looking at the pictures on this website bring back wonderful memories, and we are counting down the days until we can return. Kevin and Claire, the property managers, were simply wonderful. They truly make traveling to another country stress-free. Kevin, Claire, and the owners go above and beyond to make sure that all of your needs are met and that your vacation is perfect. We will be back to Roatan and we will be staying here when we return.

“Amazing vacation spot”

Reviewed 13 Dec 2010

We would absolutely recommend Far Tortuga. We totally agree with everything in the other reviews. We would like to add comments re the beautiful well equipped kitchen, the original artwork, the high quality furnishings, comfortable deck furniture, comfortable mattresses and lovely bedding. We bought fresh lobster and fish right at the dock and were given instructions on how to cook it. Snorkelling right in front of the house and the beautiful infinity pool for cooling off were real assets. We also enjoyed the outdoor showers after snorkelling. Another big plus was the complete privacy. There is nothing missing to make this one of the best vacation spots ever

“Relax, unwind, enjoy!”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2010

Far Tortuga is absolutely beautiful and this property is in a great location. Very relaxing to be right on the ocean and able to overlook the waves while sitting in the pool and cooling off. The house itself has a great layout and is equipped with everything you need to feel at home and then some. The wraparound decks are wonderful to sit in the sun or just relax with a beverage, or snooze in a hammock while listening to the waves beside you. The snorkelling, directly in front of the house, was amazing!!! The property managers, Kevin & Claire, were extremely friendly and helpful. They met us at the airport, guided us directly to the house, and provided some helpful insider tips on island life and various restaurants and activities which allowed us to jump right into our vacation. Having access to a cell phone and the internet were very convenient and helped in our planning of activities for the week as well as keeping in touch with home. Roatan is a paradise and we would go back to this house in a flash! Definitely give this property the highest recommendation.

“A great, place to totally kick back and relax!!”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2009

We had a very pleasant and relaxing time at Far Tortuga. Anne, the owner, was very friendly and provided us with a lot of useful information prior to our arrival, and Claire and Kevin welcomed us to Roatan and were very helpful. The House is lovely, with beautiful views and only steps away from the dock at First Bight, where you can launch the Canoe or inflatable row boat available at the house. Especially pleasant early morning or in the evening. We highly recommend bringing snorkeling gear, or renting it for $5 nearby at Turquoise Bay. You can spend many wonderful hours in the water this way - just remember to put on sun block (there's plenty in the house in case you forget...). The one thing to remember, is that you need to rent a car for your stay if you want easy access to the house and other attractions on the island. Clair and Kevin can help there as well.
