Holiday Rental House
Far Tortuga is located mid-island on the south side of Roatan approximately 20 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from French Harbour. It is a secluded, oceanfront home, comfortable for up to 9 people, in the small community known as First Bight. The house features a modern kitchen with all conveniences: granite countertops,gas cooktop, wall oven, disposal, dishwasher, microwave, coffee-grinder and coffee-maker, toaster oven, food processor, blender, etc. The tiled living room, kitchen, and dining areas are large and airy and feel even more spacious because of the stunning vaulted wood cupola ceiling and the massive wood French doors that face the ocean. These doors all catch the ocean breezes and beckon visitors to barbeque on the gas grill or just relax and watch the sunset from ...Far Tortuga is located mid-island on the south side of Roatan approximately 20 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from French Harbour.

These doors all catch the ocean breezes and beckon visitors to barbeque on the gas grill or just relax and watch the sunset from over 2000 square feet of decks and gazebos. There is an infinity pool that overlooks the ocean and the stone patios and benches surrounding it are perfect for sunbathing. All 3 bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, louvered windows, ceiling and floor fans, hardwood floors, luxury linens, and the two largest bedrooms have their own oceanview decks. Our master bedroom is very privately situated in its own wing and includes a queen bed , a huge master bathroom with 2 vanity sinks and a walk-in shower. The other two bedrooms share a full bath . One room contains a bunkbed and an extra long twin and the other bedroom has a queen bed. There is a very comfortable sofabed in the living room and a queen-size aero-bed if you want to sleep under the stars in one of the gazebos. The turquoise waters of the Caribbean are steps away from the house across the Ironshore. In addition, there is always easy access through the community dock a short walk away in First Bight or at the community beach a few doors down from the house. 3 kayaks are also available for your pleasure. Some of the best wall diving on Roatan is a short swim or kayak away in front of this house where the snorkeling is also excellent. For less adventurous guests, we suggest lazing in the pool or on the covered porches watching for dolphins or enjoying the many hummingbirds that visit the feeders and hibiscus blooms surrounding the decks. On arrival at Roatan Airport or the Ferry Terminal our Property Managers will be on hand to help you pick up your rental vehicle (highly recommended) and then escort you to the house.Come stay at Far Tortuga - we know that you'll be glad you did!More
