The layout of this house was odd, but actually worked for our group perfectly. There is a two-bedroom unit on the top floor with a full kitchen/living area/bathroom/balcony, a two-bedroom unit on the middle floor that is identical, and two master suite bedrooms on the ground floor (that open to the pool area) each with their own bath but no living area or kitchens. For our multi-family group this worked really well, but it wasn't obvious to us by reading the description that it was laid out like this.
The house is huge and well furnished. the pool area is spectacular and GREAT for kids (most of it is like a wading pool, so there will be no lap swimming here). The views are nice, but this house looks north, so no really beautiful sunsets. I guess you could walk to the beach if you wanted, but this house in on a really steep hill so I can't imagine doing that, plus the beaches within walking distance are surfing beaches and not good for kids. The drive to the beach wasn't far though.
The only reason I am not giving this place 5 stars is because we ran out of water twice in our week long stay. I don't mean we ran out of hot water either, I mean we were dry. We weren't using the water excessively and didn't even have all the bedrooms full. You would think that they would plan to have enough water in the reserve tanks for the number of bedrooms in the house. That being said, the rental company was fast to respond and fix the problem. But it was a bummer to not be able to shower after getting back from the beach, or run the dishwasher, or flush the toilet (you get the idea).
Even with the water issues though I would still recommend this place. It was as awesome as the pictures show and the rental company was great to work with.
We stayed at this great place for a week with a group of people with younger children. It was a fantastic and it is possible to both enjoy the social side of a large group and at the same time get privacy when needed. The layout of the house is really perfect for a larger group and the property meets the highest expectations.
There were are lot of mixed activities to do and the poolside is a great place to hang out so everyone could enjoy the days depending on taste.
We can really recommend this place and we will return again.
Gorgeous views, contemporary style, great location for a fun and relxing vacation. Great spot if you are looking to travel with your family and/or a fun trip with friends. So much to do - enjoy delicious food at nearby restaurants and cafes, explore the beautiful scenery and coast, shop at local vendors, relax by the infinity pool and bar right outside your balcony, take a quick walk to the beach and sunbathe, swim or surf. I had such a wonderful time with my family and friends and can't wait to go back!!
We stayed at Casa La Tortuga with 3 families, two kids per family. The house worked perfectly for us. There was plenty of room for us to spread out and space to get privicy if need be. The decor was modern and beautiful. The common areas worked great! We had a great time utilzing the blender at the poolside bar and the veiw from the pool is spectacular. We loved it and will be coming back!
My husband and I spent one week ( two consecutive years) at Casa La Tortuga with another couple and enjoyed every minute of our vacation. We were there the week before Easter both times and the weather was perfect. The house is beautiful, clean and has all of the amenities to enjoy a relaxing and fun time with a beautiful view and pool. We also enjoyed sight seeing, visiting various beaches, snorkeling and the many restaurants in the area. We opted to fly to San Juan, enjoy the city and rent a car, the trip to Rincon was easy and scenic. All and all we recommend this beautiful get away for all ages.
Perfection is the most accurate description I can up with. You're secluded but in the heart of it all at the same time. Restaurants, shopping, bars, music, surf...all just a stone's throw away. But you feel completely private in your own little castle. The pool and views from it are stunning. A quick hike to the beach for amazing sunsets. The place was clean and is obviously very well maintained. Whether you want a romantic night out, a fun bar scene, or a quiet night at home, its all right there. Can't thank you enough for such an awesome time. No doubt about it, I'll be back!
