Overview

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.

About Sarah Gerken

My husband and I co-own our house with my parents. We have welcomed guests from all over the world and enjoy the vacation rental business immensely.

Sarah Gerken purchased this house in 2006

Why Sarah Gerken 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, parents, and friends.

What makes this house unique

The arica palms that surround the pool and patio provide complete privacy. Our house is located in a quiet, family neighborhood that is great for long walks and bike rides, as well as bird watching and spotting a turtle or two.

Nice home in a nice neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

My family of 5 enjoyed our stay in this villa, which is nicely appointed and situated in a quiet neighborhood of well cared for homes. We especially enjoyed the heated pool and spa. The owners are friendly and helpful. The only problem we encountered was bugs in the kitchen, which they were going to have exterminated after we left.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your (second!) review of our home in Sebastian, FL. We are glad you enjoyed the heated pool and jacuzzi. We have already had our regular pest control service check and service the inside of the home (they spray the outside on a regular schedule to keep most bugs from enterring the home). Thanks for calling us to let us know of this issue, without your feedback we would not be able to correct a situation like this so quickly. Come again soon! PS We were told that the small flying insects you saw were gnats.

Nice home in a nice neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

My family of 5 enjoyed this nice home in a nice, quiet neighborhood. It was laid out great, furnished well and the beds were comfortable. The heated pool and spa were great and got a lot of use. The only problem was the bugs in the kitchen, which the owners were going to have taken care of by an exterminator.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the detailed review of our home. We are glad you enjoyed the many features of our home including the heated pool and spa. We also want to thank you for calling us to let us know about the bugs in the kitchen. Our pest service does a regularly scheduled prevention treatment on the outside perimeter of our home. They will be treating the interior of our home this week for the small flying bugs that you described in the kitchen. It is guests like you who help us to maintain our standards of a quality, clean, well maintained vacation home. Again, thank you, and come again soon!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
