12 of us stayed at this beautiful home for a family reunion. We were looking for quality time together in a quiet, natural setting. This location was perfect!
The location is only accessible by banca (boat), so it takes a bit of coordinating. But it is so worth it! Arrival is best before 1pm, since the waves get stronger in the afternoon.
We arranged for pick up at the airport, followed by a short stop to the grocery store to stock up on food/drinks for our stay. Once we arrived, we let the relaxation begin. There are so many activities nearby - we snorkeled, ziplined, and even visited the nearby underground river. Everything was easy to arrange, thanks to the villa's caretaker, Gigi. In the mornings, we enjoyed breakfast on the veranda and watched the local caribou. Gigi would provide us with fresh coconuts upon request. At night, we made delicious meals in the roomy kitchen and built campfires on the beach.
The house is spacious and comfortable. The air conditioner can be used between in the 3 master bedrooms between 8pm and 6am. In the daytime, the ceiling fans were sufficient to keep cool. The villa is a very short walk from the beach. We had the whole beach to ourselves!
We would definitely recommend this booking to friends.
What an extraordinary place. I rented the turtle Bay Villa with my Fiancé and her Filipino family. The location is stunning it's on a beach that is virtually private with only a few locals from the local village occasionally seen. The Villa itself is clean, well appointed and uber spacious. The outdoor decks really combine with the indoor space to make it very open and airy. The kitchen is separated from the main villa by just a few feet, but we found ourselves hanging out in there with ten or so people at a time while the aunties cooked. The pool and observation deck are a bit of a grueling hike up a steep path, but the view is worth the hike.
The owners Peter and Viel were amazing at arranging everything from vans to boats to a whole roasted pig for my birthday. Their staff will help you with grocery shopping, luggage hauling and boats to get to the villa. The caretakers Gigi and Benito were equally amazing. They took care of everything we needed including moving substantial furniture so that we could seat 18 for dinner, building bonfires on the beach nightly and arranging for tours of the nearby underground river.
The beach sand at this location is sugar soft and you can walk out hundreds of yards into the water without hitting any rocky spots. The waves are very mellow, but if you go out far enough you can catch some small waves for surfing.
I can't say enough good things about this rental. Location, staff, amenities, privacy, beach and Villa Design are all five star.
We stayed for 8 days and it was just Amazing. We are a family of 6, and turtle Bay is simply a perfect place. If you like privacy and nature! The villa itself is huge and beautiful! It has a infinity pool by the hill and viewing deck ! The beach and the view from the villa is spectacular!
This is the place you wanna be.
Just make sure you buy your food supplies before coming to the villa! As the place is isolated and you have to take a boat ride before reaching the next grocery!
The caretaker Gigi and Benito makes our stay absolutely memorable. The daily coconut, arranging tour to underwater river to the bonfire set up!
And there is also Marc who supposed to just check on us! But also end up cooking for us! And he also arrange our reservation for ka Lui restaurant!
And don't forget Ken! Our driver who was so knowledgeable!
Just a feedback, hope the owner consider on putting some light on the pathway to Gigi and Benito house.
As it's a bit difficult to access them when we need them in the middle of the night. Specially when it's raining.
And a bigger boat maybe to take your guest to the island.
As we end up getting 2 boat on our way to the villa.(1 for us and 1 for our things)
