Guestbook comments from the owner

We just got back from a great week at Far Tortuga. There were 8 of us (6 adults and 2 kids). The place was well equipped with everything you need for both the adults (big kids) and the little ones, ages 2 & 4. They loved the pool and beach while we enjoyed snorkeling out front and the cabana out on the water. Very relaxing spot away from the hustle and bussle of the main drag (seven mile beach). Would highly recommend this villa for families or just a group of adults.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

Went to the Caymans to celebrate our mom's 75th birthday with 13 Family members (3 families of 4 - 6 kids ranging in age from 13-22 and 7 adults ranging in age from 46-75). The house was just what we needed - plenty of room - well maintained - The gazebo was a great spot and the snorkeling on the reef just off the gazebo is outstanding. We had great meals at Kaibo upstairs - Tukka - and Italian Kitchen - also enjoyed the food at over the edge, kurtz corner (best value) and Kaibo "downstairs". Rum point was fun as was the starfish beach - all within 7-10 min of the house. We also ventured into town (About an hour drive) for dinner at morgans - which was outstanding - and lucca which was great, but not as good as morgans (not sure it's worth the drive over to seven mile beach, but we were there anyway for fishing and sunset sail on two different nights) - Vince (the owner) is extremely responsive and helpful - and spot on with his recommendations. We had Linda come to cook for us one night which was also very enjoyable. The Pool is small, but clean and perfect for cooling off. We used mccurlies and eddie ebanks and would do so again. Ocean Frontiers was first rate for snorkeling, scuba and swimming with the Stingrays! The northside of the island is totally different than 7 mile beach area, but extremely relaxing, private and beautiful. One of the best vacations our extended family has had!

Amazing house, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just got home from an amazing week at Far Tortuga! We were a group of 12, 5 adult couples and 2 kids (7yo and 2yo). We couldn’t have been happier with our stay, everyone agreed the house was perfect and this was one of our best vacations ever (in a well-traveled group)! The house is clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated, spacious, well maintained, and the location can’t be beat!

-The bedrooms are comfortable and the bathrooms are spacious and clean. We never ran out of hot water!

-Kitchen is modern and well equipped. We saved a lot of money by cooking most meals there.

-The screened in porch is the ultimate dining spot, great to enjoy the ocean without worrying about bugs while you eat ( we were surprised at how few bugs there were here compared to other tropical vacations).

-House was great for kids with multiple ways to contain the 2yo (screened porch, fenced beach yard)

-We LOVED the quiet east end location and had easy access to all the activities we wanted to do (Stingrays with Captain Marvin's, Diving with Ocean Frontiers, Night Kayaking with Sweet Spot) and great dining at Tukka and Over the Edge (our 2 favorite restaurants). We did not miss the crowds and tourist traps of George Town at all!

-The pier and gazebo are beautiful, and the ladder makes for easy access to snorkel.

-The pool is very nice and extremely clean.

-The Snorkeling behind the house is truly amazing! We did this for many hours each day; the reef is beautiful and is full of a wide variety of fish and sea critters (even a turtle).

-Do be aware, where there is a reef there are rocks, bring your water shoes so you can have fun (as we did) exploring the tide pools and waking on the beach.

-We STRONGLY recommend using McCurlies Car Rental and Eddie Ebanks grocery service to make your arrival easy and stress free.

-The owner, Vince, is wonderful to work with and responded to all e-mail quickly. He had lots of good suggestions that helped our tip go smoothly.

We would recommend Far Tortuga for anyone who wants a quiet relaxing vacation away from the crowds, anyone who loves water sports, snorkeling, and diving and wants uncrowned reefs in great condition, and anyone who enjoys great food and interacting with the friendly local residents. I would not recommend the north side/east end of Cayman if you want fluffy sand with no coral/rocks , and really enjoy shopping, crowds, or crazy night life.

Owner's Response: I love to hear from our guests. Good, Bad or indifferent. Many of our improvements have come from guest suggestions. (like a Electric Knife sharpener for one) DebAnne and I travel a lot ourselves and know what we would like in a rental home and try to fulfill that with Far Tortuga. We invest a good portion of the rental income to preventative maintenance and upgrades. We are very fortunate to have purchased Far Tortuga in North Side as it is the perfect location on the Island. The local residents are friendly and very helpful. Beautiful Ocean, Great Snorkeling, Great Restaurants, Beach Bars and things to do. I love the Island, The people and our guests. Hope to have you back again next year.

This was our first time at Far Tortuga. Plenty of room for 8 adults and 3 children. Loved the villa, gazebo,pool and the people! We had a few minor housekeeping issues but received immediate and satisfactory response . McCurley's picked us up at the airport and stopped at the grocery on the way. Our rental vehicles were at the villa. We walked to Chisholms mid week...very short walk. They have most essentials. The catamaran to Sting Ray City was wonderful. We enjoyed the Botanic Gardens, Mastic Trail, Starfish Point(lots of starfish),the Submarine and the Turtle Farm,Kaibo Beach BBQ. We enjoyed all of the restaurants..Rum Point..fish &chips, Lighthouse,Over the Edge, Alfresco..near the Turtle Farm,pizza from the Italian Kitchen was great. Unfortunately the North Side snorkeling was not the best..east winds stirred the water . Snorkeling at Rum point and on the catamaran trip was good. We highly recommend Far Tortuga !
