About Jackie Morris

Villa Tortuga has been a dream of ours since we first got married. Well, at least the idea of owning property within close proximity of the ocean was. Being from the landlocked state of Oklahoma, our visits to the beach came in the form of family vacations, most often to Florida or Mexico. In 2011 our family decided to take our Christmas trip to Costa Rica. Immediately we fell in love with the nature, the culture, and the people. Costa Rica is unlike any place in the world. For us, it was just developed enough to be comfortable, but untouched enough to remain a idillic paradise. After 3 years of Christmas vacations spent in Manuel Antonio, our family decided to take the plunge and buy property on our favorite street! We are taking every measure possible to make this home feel like a dream vacation home, and we hope that your family will enjoy it as much as ours does!

Jackie Morris purchased this villa in 2013

Why Jackie Morris chose Manuel Antonio

Villa Tortuga has undergone quite the facelift. While it wasn't the prettiest one on the block, we saw the potential in her. Her views are unmatched by any house on the same street. Not only that, but she is located right next door to our best friends, so it was a perfect fit for our family. In July 2014, we will be unveiling the brand new, fully renovated Villa Tortuga. Every tile, every wall, every faucet and fixture has been replaced. And while she maintains her glorious spot high upon the hill (her best feature), that's about all that remains of the former Villa. She's quite the looker now!

What makes this villa unique

You can see the ocean from almost everyone room in the house. The house has been engineered for plenty of privacy, so while there are neighbors close by, you will feel like you are in your own private paradise.

When Can I Go Back!?

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for a dream vacation then congratulations, you've found it! Villa Tortuga in Manuel Antonio has it all. I've stayed in two other properties in Manuel Antonio, but after staying at Villa Tortuga, I will never stay anywhere else. From the luxurious house amenities to the breathtaking views of the ocean and rainforest to the evening visits from the capuchin monkeys, my stay at Villa Tortuga was PERFECT. Seriously, the owners of this property have thought of everything. The house has an amazing deck where we spent the majority of our time (when we weren't at the beach that is). The deck overlooks the ocean, has lots of open space for laying out and a nice, saltwater pool to hop in whenever you need to cool off. In addition, there are outdoor tables on the deck which made it a great place for us all to gather, sip on some delicious, tropical cocktails and play card games in the evenings AND get visits from the monkeys! I highly recommend stocking up on bananas - they will come take pieces from you right out of your hands! The inside of the house is just amazing... Great decoration, comfortable beds, all the toiletries I needed (loved not having to pack those), AC!, and last but not least - plenty of hot water for showers (which was a major issue during my previous stays at other properties). It was also very comforting to know that the house manger was around if we needed anything. She was a great help in planning what activities we wanted to do and made the process of getting reservations a breeze. I can't believe I haven't even mentioned the beach yet! The beach is a quick and enjoyable walk from Villa Tortuga and is filled with the friendliest locals. Literally, don't be surprised if you get on a first name basis with the man taking your smoothie order (his name is Ronnie for the record) :) Really, I only had one complaint with Villa Tortuga - and that complaint was that I never wanted to leave. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a worry-free tropical vacation. PURA VIDA!

Vacation of a Lifetime!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I have to start of by commenting on the absolutely BREATHTAKING view!!! Pictures DO NOT do it justice. I could have spent the rest of my life standing on the balcony staring at that view. The journey from the San Jose Airport to Manuel Antonio was a rather smooth and quick drive. Easier than I thought it was going to be. Upon our arrival Jesse, the house manager, was there to greet us and get us set up. Jesse was wonderful and was more than accommodating. She went well out of her way to make sure we had a great experience. Every question we had she was able to answer. She even set up our appointments for the 10-in-1 zip-line jungle adventure and the para-sailing at the beach (both are MUST DO's). She had great suggestions for area restaurants as well. You have to eat at the Gondola (sp?). By far some of the best food that has entered our mouths! The house was extraordinary! Ample room for my family and everything was new! The beds were more comfortable than mine at home. We had a great time lounging on the pool deck and relaxing in the pool after long beach days! Make sure to get bananas from the store because the monkeys will come visit and they are friendly! The property was very clean and well-maintained. My family and I had a great experience at Villa Tortuga and we will definitely be back. Definitely would recommend this property as a place to experience a once in a lifetime vacation!

Beautiful house, incredible views

  • 5 of 5
Every detail of our trip was seamless. Our transportation from the airport to the house was easy, and went off without a hitch. The ride to the house was beautiful, and took far less time than we estimated, so we arrived at the house earlier than expected! Jessie was there waiting to check us in with a snack and a tropical beverage to start the trip off right! I came to Costa Rica with two other couples from Los Angeles, and the house was the perfect size. Each room had something special, and everyone was very pleased with how comfortable the beds were! The house is close to the beach, which was great, because we spent about 50% of our time there, but the rest of the time, we LOVED hanging out in the pool and taking in the incredible view from the house. We walked to some great restaurants, and would definitely recommend Cafe Milagro. We took a couple of tours during our stay, which Jessie expertly arranged. The white-water rafting was great! Obviously, the big selling point to renting this house was the view, and it does NOT disappoint. From almost every room you get an incredible view of the ocean, beach, and national park. I highly recommend staying at Villa Tortuga. As a new vacation rental, the house is super clean, and all the fixtures and furniture are new and comfortable. It rained a couple of times while we were there, but there are some incredible spots in the house to stay entertained when that happens. They have an awesome blu-ray collection, and a built in library upstairs, but our favorite was sitting outside under their covered patio to grill out and listen to the rain! We will definitely be back!
