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!

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!
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.
This place was amazing! It felt very luxurious and had beautiful views.The staff was great and helped us out a lot. There was a lot of fun activities to do both on and off the beach. There was also a lot of good places to eat near the house. I am already planning my return trip!
This place was amazing. Victor was especially helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience on my first trip to this wonderful country. It was close to everything. Did a zip-lining/repelling excursion and spent a good amount of time on the beach, even learning to surf. We even had monkeys come visit us on the property! Great views, great pool, great house. I would recommend this for anyone looking to visit costa rica! I will be back for sure!
This place was awesome! The house is huge and fit our larger sized party perfectly. It's clean and decorated very nicely! The views were amazing and there is a private pool if you aren't feeling like leaving the house. The staff was great! Victor was very helpful! My fiance and I stayed in the casita while we were vacationing with our friends and we loved it. Infact, we loved it so much that we are going to be staying at Villa Tortuga for our honeymoon as well. While we were there this time we did the ziplining tour and it was really fun. If you want some time in the jungle with some cool views you should try it out. Anyway long story short, I would highly recommend staying at Villa Tortuga if you want an awesome place to stay while you are in Manuel Antonio.
We loved Villa Tortuga through and through!! From the owners to the staff, ALL are super professional and amazing. We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else and having the same wonderful experience as we did our first time in Costa Rica. We looked at many homes on vrbo before deciding on this one. After we arrived, we knew we had made a perfect choice. The pictures do NOT give this place justice. The house is so clean and has so much character. The views are to die for!! Every morning, my husband and I sat out on the top balcony and watched the sun come up. It was just beautiful. We are frequent guests of the Florida panhandle and love vacationing at the beautiful beaches, but there's something about Villa Tortuga that allows you to experience
Costa Rica in a way that is simply unforgetable. Not to mention that you can see practically ALL of Manuel Antonio from the balconies. We had 2 different groups of monkeys visit us on more than one occasion. One time, we had about a dozen on the rancho surrounding my entire group of 12. I've never seen my kids so quiet!! We were all taking it all in!! It was the coolest thing! We also saw a gorgeous sloth in the tree on the property. The staff is so sweet and so helpful. Victor made us feel like royalty. The maid and groundskeeper were always smiling and busy working. Dedeire the cook was so much fun for my entire family....he let several of my kids help cook! The food was incredible! Everything was super fresh and "5 star" restaurant quality. We are already talking about when we can come back next year. You cannot go wrong staying at Villa Tortuga!!
Definitely one of the best vacation rentals I have ever had the pleasure of staying at! Between a stressful job and demanding graduate school, I was looking for a place to relax and unwind, and VILLA TORTUGA did not disappoint. The views are breathtaking, the house is immaculate, comfortable, and clean. I didn't know what to expect from the staff, but Victor and the team made sure I lived like a king. Minutes from the beach, zip lining, and the best food, it's a hidden gem. Clearly, the owners take pride in this place, and their dedication and attention to detail is beyond obvious. If you visit Costa Rica, make sure to stay here!
Villa Tortuga is FANTASTIC! This was my first time to Costa Rica and I must say that I could not have stayed in a better place. The view from almost every vantage point is breathtaking. The beds are luxurious and like sleeping on a cloud. The staff is incredibly nice and always willing to help out. Whether it be pointing you towards the beach or scheduling one of the many great tours Costa Rica has to offer (highly recommend the 10-1 tour and the jet ski tours. Both awesome.) And don't forget about the monkeys! If breakfast on one of the many balconies can quickly turn into a a scene from the discovery channel. On our trip we had the chance to feed a banana to a baby monkey. Adorable. It's hot in Costa Rica so having a pool right on site is also a wonderful treat, especially if you can't make it to the beach that day. The house itself is located incredibly close to local shops and resteraunts and only a short drive or public transit ride to the main public beach. Oh. I almost forgot about the in house chef! Anything you could imagine to eat all at your fingertips. If you e had a long day in the sun, nothing's better than having dinner ready for you when you walk in the door. There's not enough time or space to do this place justice. You really can't miss with Villa Tortuga. It's romantic, relaxing, a ton of fun, and just plain awesome!
A 5 minute car ride from the beach and national park. No car? No problem! A few blocks away you can catch a bus that runs regularly to the public beach!
