Far Tortuga...The Place to Be
Dear Vince and Debanne,
Our family of eight (parents, siblings & spouses, cousin and friend) recently had the pleasure of staying at Far Tortuga. It was so wonderful that we are planning next year's trip.
The trip was especially important for my Mom, who had just finished many months of chemotherapy, physical therapy and countless doctors’ appointments and was scheduled to begin six weeks of radiation three days after our return from Cayman. It also was a respite for my Dad, my husband and I from the stress associated with her diagnosis and our traveling to and from Virginia from Arkansas. As soon as we returned home from Far Tortuga, we decided we HAD to go back. This trip was therapeutic for all!
We appreciate your email asking if everything was okay. In response to your question about how everything was: everything was just great. The location could not have been better. When you walked through the front door of the house, the view “knocks your socks off”. So, much so, that you really never want to leave. The house was equipped with everything we could have possibility needed or thought we needed! The view was magnificent, the sunsets gorgeous and the snorkeling was very colorful with many species of fish and underwater scenery. Dick and I have snorkeled for over 40 years, in many locations and this was amazing. We all enjoyed the gazebo which was prime space for sunrises, sunsets, and naps. The gazebo ladder also provides easy access to the water for snorkeling and swimming.
It was convenient to Rum Point and we discovered Kurt’s Corner Restaurant on Frank Sound Road. There was also a small store just a few steps away from the home for the little things...milk, bread, ice cream, newspaper.
Your Manager, Roy, was so helpful and accommodating. Dick and I were already on-island staying at the Morritts’ and had to check out by 11:00. Roy was kind enough to let us drop off our luggage around noon so that we could pick up our families with their luggage who were arriving on three different flights. We also had the opportunity to meet Jennifer who works with Roy and she was also extremely helpful. The VOIP system is a nice amenity; when you need to be in touch with others in the US.
As you can tell by the length of this review, we can’t say enough about your home. This was our third trip to Grand Cayman and the Northside is the place to be and Far Tortuga is the place to stay.
Families with Teenagers,
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: Lori, Thank you for taking the time to send a guest review. DebAnne and I are proud of Far Tortuga and our management people “On Island”. You and your family were great guests and obviously seasoned travelers, which makes our job a lot easier.
I will forward a copy of your review to Roy and Jennifer and send you the information for next year. As we say, the only think we expect from our guests is to “HAVE FUN”.
DebAnne and Vince
