I wanted to let you know that we had an unbelievable stay at the villa Corazon de la Tortuga. The location in Tankah is a perfect setting to get away from it all. Being right on the ocean is such a beautiful setting and catching the sunrise over the ocean is spectacular. It is an exquisite home. The materials the owner used for the layout of the house...she put such detail and artistic touches throughout the home. It very comfortably accommodated our two families with plenty of space for all to enjoy our week vacation. Zubet was an unbelievable concierge, cook and host. She provided us with plenty of brochures with activities around the area. She was helpful in guiding us to interesting and fun places to eat and explore. Zubet is an amazing cook---who provided us with 3 delicious meals with local seafood and produce of the area. She makes awesome margaritas too! She truly helped make our vacation so easy and fun. We obviously can\\\'t say enough great things about the Corazon de la Tortuga House and Villas Caribe. This vacation went way beyond our expectation with the house, location and most of all Zubet !
