“A Bucket List Come True”
Casa Tortuga was everything and more. Our group from Texas were blown away and kept thanking me for finding this beautiful villa and sharing this wonderful experience with them. Maria is your shining star. She is an incredible cook. The food and table presentation for every meal was outstanding. Everything was fresh and mouth watering delicious. Her assistants were very sweet and with the three of them, they kept Casa Tortuga in top shape. The grounds were just beautiful. They were well maintained and kept fresh for a new day of fun in the sun. Our group enjoyed all the wonderful tours that were available for us, snorkeling, fishing and the zip lining tours. The whole week was an incredible experience and one that none of us will ever forget. We all want to come back! A big Texas thank you for a trip of a lifetime.
From the avacado/mango dip and pina coladas on arrival to our last taxi ride back to the airport, this was a great vacation for our group of 5 couples. The villa lived up to our expectations and more - the beds were comfortable, the a/C cooling and the views to die for! The staff kept everything clean and inviting. We spent many hours on both verandas enjoying the breeze, views and adult beverages. The food - what to say - everything was absolutely delicious! We told Maria to make whatever she wanted to make with an emphasis on seafood and we were not disappointed. She was especially accommodating to one of our group members who follows a gluten free diet. The only meals (2 lunches) we did not eat at the villa were those that were included in our tours. Maria and her helpers work hard at making your stay very memorable and they were successful with us! Our excursions with Suya tours were also great. Carlos, Allen, Gavino and their crews made snorkeling easy and the ruins very interesting. We even got to pet a nurse shark! We rented one golf cart which allowed us to take turns at trips into town. Our 3 "pool days" were certainly relaxing and fun as we took walks, swam, read and napped the day away. The color of the water cannot be accurately captured in pictures - it was gorgeous - and the roar of the waves on the reef was amazing. All in all a fantastic vacation at a fantastic villa!
“Relaxing Getaway with Fabulous accomodations”
It rained sometime everyday. But have no fear, the 10 adults staying here had plenty to keep us busy. We snorkeled, sailed, fished, drank, partied, played chess, and best of all, relaxed. The natives are friendly, and our hostess Maria and her staff treated us like royalty. No wonder she is considered the best cook on the island! Absolutely loved it!
The house was greate and Maria's food was even better. I would absolutley recommend this house to other, both for familys travelign with small children and for group of friends. We were 3 couples, age between 26 - 31 years old
It was a wonderful vacation from beginning to end. Working with Peggy was a pleasure. She was very helpful and available throughout the process. The home is well appointed and very comfortable. The location is ideal, a fun golf cart trip to town or the north end. The pool with all it's amenities was our favorite. We played a lot of chess and occupied every chair and hammock!!! The dock for excursions is very convenient. I'm saving the best for last...Maria & her staff!! We ate 22 out of 23 meals there. She is very accommodating as far as meal time and selection. From the hand squeezed orange juice to the homemade pies and cakes, there is nothing you won't find fabulous! 5 star all the way. The only negative comment I have is that is a sewer smell in the bathrooms, but it is an island. You will have a wonderful holiday if you rent this property.
“The best vacation/honeymoon ever!!!”
I have traveled many places and I must say, this was the best!!! The Pelican's Nest at Casa Tortuga was perfect for our honeymoon! We enjoyed every minute of our 8 day trip. The cook/maid who lives on the grounds greeted us with fresh guacamole and pina coladas when we arrived and the trip just got better and better! Because we had her, we saved a lot of money not having to dine out for most of our meals. We spent a fraction on food as we do on most vacations and had homemade everything!!! We just told her what we would like for the next day or so and she shopped and prepared it for the time we requested. We arranged all our excursions through contacts of Casa Tortuga which made it so convenient and excellent pricing on everything! It is close enough to the main "strip" and yet far enough away to provide all the privacy anyone could want. The private beach and pool were amazing and we enjoyed having fresh ceviche at the table in the pool as we went for a swim. We enjoyed breakfast and other meals on the roof deck which gave us an amazing view of the ocean and island. I could not recommend a better place to stay if you are going to Belize either for a romantic get away or a family vacation or even a large group of friends etc.
“Oceanfront home for large families”
With 2 children and their wives plus 4 grandchildren (ages 6 and under) we had a very comfortable time at the villa. The staff were very friendly and the cook was excellent. We never felt crowded while there. The home is oceanfront with no beach. That's common for Belize. There is a short wall keeping the ocean from the property. We have rented many villas over the years, and the one minor complaint would be that the cook (grocery getters) never gave us a receipt for the food they purchased. This has not been true in other villas in Mexico. Our stay would have been more enjoyable if the wind had died down from the 25 mph during the week-but that's Mother nature.
Response from the owner Thank you for your review. Just to clarify for future guests, we have 250' of beachfront in front of Casa Tortuga Villa. 150' of our beach is a natural sandy beach, where you can walk directly into the sea. The last 100' of our beach has a 2' high seawall with an 8- wide semi circle step leading to the water. Our dock is at the south end of our seawall, so that it does not impede the view of the reef from the villa.
“Wonderful Casa, with everything you need to have a relaxing time”
Casa Tortuga is a wonderful slice of heaven, just a beautiful home, it has everything that you need for a great vacation! From the pool to the rooms its top notch! (The Beds were awesome) Besides fishing, scuba, snorkeling and the Mayan ruins, there is no need to leave the property to enjoy the vacation. Maria the caretaker/cook is a special lady and a wonderful cook every meal was very tasty and the afternoon Ceviche, Guac and Salsa were great! The perfectly placed hammocks were very relaxing, the chess board on the beach was a fun addition and many games were played and the little table in the pool was perfect for card games and drinks! The perfect place for a vacation for fun and relaxation on San Pedro is Casa Tortuga, can't wait till next year.
“One in a million place”
This place--Casa Tortuga--is the #1 property in Belize. I should know. I've visited Belize nine times since 1998. I have scrutinized all the premier houses for rent on ambergis Caye. I've been to all the adjacent islands. I've been to the mainland. Peggy Mason is a highly cultured diva who has impeccable taste, a big budget, and a talent for design and decor. She has the best plot of land on the island, a wonderful cook, and all the best contacts for excursions and entertainment. When you spend time at Casa Tortuga, you are sitting in the lap of luxury and don't ever want to leave. It is akin to a private 5-star hotel, only better.
“Perfect family vacation spot!!!”
Casa Tortuga was a wonderful home on the sea with everything we needed. Golf carts into town, gorgeous pool, plenty of room for our family of 11 inside and out, bikes to ride, amazingly comfortable beds with the softest sheets...and maria and crew!!! We had delicious homemade breakfasts, lunches, and dinners everyday...and not a single dish was washed by us!! A truly relaxing and fantastic vacation!!!
