Borrowing from Walt Disney's mission for Disneyland, our mission for 'Tortuga Cay' is simple...'to be a place where friends & family can have fun together.' 'Tortuga Cay' is a place where families can bike to the beach on our complimentary 'beach cruiser' bicycles. A place where children can fish from our pier or kayak in the protected canals of Jamaica Beach (we provide kayaks & life vests at no cost). This is a place where parents can relax on the deck, knowing the kids & pets are playing safely in our fully-fenced yard; and a place where friends can enjoy a day of boating right from our slip or simply spend the afternoon relaxing by the fireplace. Above all else, Tortuga Cay' is a place to get away for awhile, relax, and enjoy life with each other!

Above all else, Tortuga Cay' is a place to get away for awhile, relax, and enjoy life with each other! Following an extensive renovation completed in December of 2014, 'Tortuga Cay' now features beautiful granite countertops, glass tile back-splashes, all new stainless appliances, two fully renovated decks overlooking the expansive lagoon and much, much more. With three decks overlooking the water the home features water views from virtually every room in the house. The layout of the home makes it easy for families and groups to travel together; three bedrooms total with two bedrooms upstairs (and away from the main living area) and two decks adjoining the king bedrooms. The beautiful stone fireplace with inlaid nautical tiles, features an electric fireplace operated with the push of button... the heating function is optional making the ambience of a crackling fire possible any time of year, with no risk of burning to pets or children. Lockable safety gates on both the upstairs deck and the fully-fenced yard help keep your children & pets safely away from the water. Child safety gates are provided to keep your little ones away from the interior staircase. (A note from the owners... we have a 2-year old and a 6-month old of our own, and have designed this home with them in mind. We have taken great care to ensure our home allows your children to play safely AND allow parents to enjoy their vacation without constant worry.) Our private dock is equipped with an underwater fishing light to help draw in the 'big ones' after dark! Trout, red fish, drum, and several other varieties are frequently caught from our deck! Amenities include: 55' LCD TV, cable TV (in living room AND king bedrooms) and complimentary high-speed wifi, washer/dryer, Moen adjustable shower heads with massage setting, Tempurpedic king mattresses, attached boat slip, deck ladder for swimming in the canal, 2 single kayaks and a tandem kayak w/ paddles & life vests, 2 beach-cruiser bicycles and a tandem 2-person bike w/ helmets, covered hammock & swing, beach chairs, boogie-boards, all linens, towels, blankets, dishes, etc... all of this and more is included with your stay!

A perfect spot for a family get together at Easter. Beautiful and well kept home with plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 lively girls. The oldest granddaughter loved her first kayaking experience. Hope we can get organized enough to come back soon.

About the neighbourhood
Click on the map link & you'll see just how incredible our location is... with the beachfront just down the street and Galveston Bay access less than 50 yards from our deck, 'Tortuga Cay' is the perfect location for families looking to get away, while still only 10 minutes away from Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, & everything Galveston island has to offer. Jamaica Beach is one of the safest and most family friendly communities on the island. Our quaint beachfront community offers 4 restaurants, a Subway sandwich shop, 2 gas stations, a neighborhood pub, and an amazing family-run grocery store.
How to get there
We are located less than 20 minutes from Galveston Scholes International Airport and about 1 hour from Hobby Airport in Houston.
