Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Come stay at our beautiful three bedroom, two bath pool home located in a quiet neighborhood just ten minutes from the beach. With all brand-new furnishings and a brand new heated pool with Jacuzzi spa, it is just waiting for your arrival.

Called Casa Tortuga because the beaches of Sebastian Inlet are a famous sea turtle nesting ground, you will find that we have tastefully incorporated images of these endangered animals into our decorating.

A fully equipped kitchen with breakfast nook and breakfast bar seating offers lots of room for visiting while preparing food. The dining area seats six and has a patio door with access to the pool. Poolside, a generously sized covered area provides protection from the sun when needed. Plantation shutters throughout the house provide just the right touch of privacy.

The master suite with a king bed also features a huge full bath with a shower and a deep tub for relaxing. A glass patio door with plantation shutters for privacy gives direct access to the pool.

The second and third bedrooms each have two twin beds that can be converted into king beds if desired. The second bath (full bath) is located between the second and third bedrooms. Two foldaway beds bring the total available sleep space to eight people.

Why Sarah Gerken or Joanna Russell chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

We purchased this house for our extended family to be able to come to Florida together. We chose Sebastian for the beautiful beaches, quiet nights, spectacular wild life, great restaurants.... We have had wonderful times here with our children, in-laws, and grand-kids.

Our house is located in a neighborhood that is great for long walks and bike rides, as well as bird watching and spotting a turtle or two.

My family and I had a wonderful time here. Beautiful house and even more beautiful pool. We enjoyed our mornings having coffee at the patio table by the pool, enjoyed family visits in the spacious kitchen and dining area, and relaxing in the pool. The pool and patio area are very private with beautiful palms surrounding. We had a hard time leaving the house to explore Sebastian!

Quite impressive!

  • 5 of 5

We were enchanted with the property the minute we pulled into the driveway and even more amazed that the pictures do this home no justice. Completely clean, well stocked with anything you could have possibly thought of (or forgot :)). Very nice and quiet neighborhood, but close within range to all amenities. Close to the most beautiful (and uncrowded) beach I've ever been on. There were 6 in my family (two teens and two preteens included) staying there and the house was spacious enough so we didn't feel crowded or on top of each other. The owners were attentive to any questions we had (such as where to find the wifi password lol). While we were there, we visited the local Chinese restaurant (no delivery but a five minute drive away), Captain Butcher's for a delicious seafood meal, About Kayaks for a self-tour through the St. Sebastian River, Sebastian Inlet Park and the Brevard Zoo. Overall, we were delighted with our stay here and look forward to visiting again soon. A sincere thank you to our hosts, for our stay at Casa Tortuga helped our family create lifetime memories in a relaxing environment!!!!

Our awsome stay at Casa Tortuga

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed and more. My husband and grandsons enjoyed the bicycles they found in the garage. Many trips were made to the pond to look for the alligator the neighbor had seen the day before we arrived. The pool was perfect. Even though my 93 yr old mom does not swim she thoroughly enjoyed watching her 3 yr old great granddaughter enjoying the pool .....and that she did. The house was situated close to the beaches, fishing, mall and grocery store. On Wed we drove a little over and hour to Cocoa Beach to have dinner with our daughter and her family who were in Orlando visiting her oldest son. The drive up A1A to Cocoa Beach was enjoyable. The only regret we had was seeing our vacation week come to an end so quickly.

Lovely home. Nice area and convenient to shopping and restaurants

  • 4 of 5

The only suggestion I would have for the owners would be to power wash the patio area once a month, have a vac for the pool and repair the torn sections of the lanai. Everything else was great. Would recommend to others.

This was our second time staying here , and as expected we were not disappointed. The house was spotlessly clean and fully set up for our stay. The pool and hot tub was a treat after a day of golf. We hope to be able to stay here in 2016.

There are so many wonderful things to do in the Sebastian area, The beach for surfing and sunbathing is only 10 minutes away, If your children are interested in the character breakfasts on Saturday morning, the Vero Beach Disney Resort is also only 10 minutes away, Sebastian Inlet State Park(known for its surfing and secluded beaches), Pelican Island Wildlife Refuge, and Indian River Mall are only 15 minutes away, Don't forget about the Sebastian Riverfront with many restaurants, parks for kids, and a path for walking or riding a bike, all less than 10 minutes away, Sebastian is also well known as a wonderful place to go fishing, both inland and off shore, Hire a guide on the Sebastian Riverfront and you could be in for a day of catching Redfish, Mahi-Mahi, Tuna, or Sailfish. There are also plenty of golf courses within easy driving distance for a day on the links, or you could just enjoy a relaxing day in the pool & jacuzzi in the peace and quiet of your back yard.
