Private paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you are hesitating to make reservations--don't worry!

The setting is as beautiful, and the house is as lovely, as in the photos! We don't speak Spanish, but the friendly staff helped us communicate. And Paulette, the owner, was easily available by phone. Such a treat to wake up to the aroma of breakfast, and in the evening come in to a delicious dinner! The chauffeur took us back and forth to the beach. It was easy to take the bus into town.

And, I drank freely from the house faucets, with no stomach problems!

This house will MAKE your trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Villa Tortugas. Everything that people say about this place being incredible is true. 6 floors (with an elevator), 2 pools one off the kitchen for lounging while enjoying drinks and appetizers, and a larger pool on the bottom floor (with an outdoor kitchen). The house overlooks the ocean, with beautiful views, especially sunsets, and some of our family went snorkling right from the house. I can't tell you how much I recommend using the chef to make you meals. Gloria, her daughter Corrine and Yolanda cooked for us (and cleaned every day, which is included). After one meal you will realize you don't want to waste time trying to find a good restaurant in town. They are amazing and their drinks (fresh fruit margaritas) and appetizers (homemade guacamole and queso fundido) are out of this world. It is a 20-30 min drive into town, so I would recommend doing only breakfast and dinner at the house on the days you are sightseeing. Boca Beach is about 2 miles south down the road from the house. There are many boats there that you can rent to take you around to wherever you'd like to go. We also went horsebackriding with Pedro, which is also nearby (by the zoo), I would recommend doing that as well. Yolanda, one of the housekeepers can set you up with that. My boys went fishing with a guy named Chava, at the beach by the hotels (forget what it's called, but also close to the zoo), they also had a great time. When dining in town I would recommend Barcelona Tapas, and for dining on the beach, Vista Grill. Both are very nice and affordable. Like the title says, this house will MAKE your trip!

TRULLY A PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us (4 couples) just returned from a dream vacation spent at Villa Tortugas. I had coordinated a group trip with friends to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. Most of us are seasoned travelers and therefore with high travel standards. Fortunately Villa Tortugas wildly surpassed all of our expectations. We didn't want to come back home!

The location is absolutely ideal. Although we were spoiled by the views, the beach and downtown area is not far at all. The property is designed extremely well with an open layout, is magnificently decorated, equipped with really cool outdoor night lighting, extremely clean, and comes with exhilarating views of the bay, and the mountains. The heated infinity pool’s (yes 2 of them) are so inviting we spent over half our time here. In fact we canceled many of our excursions because we were so happy at the villa!

The staff is attentive, friendly and Gloria is spectacular. We had plenty of fresh fruits, non-stop fresh guacamole, salsa, margaritas and freshly made drinks, not to mention gourmet dinners. You can order off a menu or just ask the staff to make whatever you want. The staff goes shopping daily and prepares your meals. You will love this paradise!

Unique and Beautiful House!! Unforgettable Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family who has traveled together for holiday getaways several times, were looking for that perfect place that would comfortably fit all 12 of us and have the requirement of sun, beach, and a fantastic view for the New Years week. We were looking all over - Jamaica, Costa Rica, Hawaii, and Riviera Maya when we stumbled upon this little town of Mismaloya near Puerta Vallarta. Enter Villa Tortugas! This house will cause you to catch your breath, the photos do not truly convey the spaciousness and beauty of the setting. We loved to explore all the areas of the house and the tiered landscaping and pathways around it. We spent so much time in the pool on the edge of the ocean. It was relaxing to hear the waves below and mesmerizing to watch them, never tiring of the view of the Los Arcos Islands. We saw whales directly out from the house; and many birds, butterflies, and a visiting pair of Iguanas. We did not rent a car, so we walked across the street to hop on the local bus for 8 pesos to drop us off at some of the nearby beaches and in to Puerta Vallarta for some shopping one day. Paulette, the owner, was incredibly helpful. She arranged the three different airport pick ups, as well as a day trip to Sayulita. Paulette found us a local guide (Luis) for one day of exploring the hidden beaches to the South along with a little snorkeling at Los Arcos, and another day took 5 of us for a deeper water fishing trip. We ate all of our meals at the house at the perfect round table for 12 . Here is where I must reveal what other reviewers chant: GLORIA! What an exceptionally talented chef, she completely spoiled us! She cooked an amazing and varied breakfast every day. We had snacks later at the pool, and another delicious full course dinner every evening. One night my son celebrated his 20th birthday, and Gloria and the staff made it a party with balloons and cake!! We came to know the rest of the staff so well during the stay - Carmen, Jorge, Miguel, Corrine - they gave us lots of privacy and always seemed to know the right moment to bring out abundant quantities of quacamole and margaritas! Gloria speaks English but it did help that two in our group speak Spanish. Lastly, the booking process was safe as I at first hesitated because a check for the full amount was needed to be mailed to Paulette's New York office. However there was always communication, I spoke with Paulette by phone, email, and What'sApp for messages. I highly recommend this house!!

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking property on the hillside of Puerto Vallarta. The home, although 6 stories, was spotless and the staff was very friendly. They cooked us a few breakfasts and cleaned our rooms while we were out. The food at the home was a nice surprise - everything freshly made by the staff on site, and delicious. The view, priceless. It's the good life.
