About Mark & Carmina McCormack

A lifelong passion for boating & scuba diving brought us to Roatan. Our family has been drawn back yearly by the wonderful people and truly spectacular island culture.

Come to the island, take a deep breath, enjoy a monkey la la and forget about the chaos that exists back home! We are thrilled to be new owners on this island paradise and happy to offer an opportunity for you to share our piece of paradise.

Come for a visit, you won't be disappointed!

Mark & Carmina McCormack purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mark & Carmina McCormack chose West Bay Village

Casa Tortuga is the newest member to the West Bay Village family. The newly constructed beach house provides all the luxury of a new build within the charm of traditional Caribbean construction

What makes this condo unique

Casa Tortuga is right on the best beach in Roatan for its white sand and excellent snorkeling reef. This home is steps away from some of the best restaurants and bars on the island. West Bay Village is a small oceanfront community of eight privately owned homes. West Bay Village has 24/7 armed security to keep things safe and secure and keep the cruise shippers out. The beach area out front has lounge chairs for residents only so you always have a chair waiting. Next to our private beach area is the West Bay dock, an easy place to catch a water taxi to West End for shopping or additional restaurants and nightclubs. In summary, Casa Tortuga is close to all the action but peaceful when the day is winding down.

Included with your stay is purified drinking water, washer and dryer, cable-TV and free high-speed WiFi. If needed a parking spot is located next to the house.

Incomparable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed many places on the island over the years, including the resort next door. This place blows all others away. It looks like a brand new house inside and out. Kitchen is stocked with everything you need in the way of cooking utensils, pots and pans, grill outside, ice trays for keeping stocked up on ice, and even several essential spices and amenities like foil and plenty of kitchen towels. The welcome gifts of coffee and a bag of ice, among other things, was great. There's even a great ocean view from the kitchen sink. The way it is set a few feet back from the hustle and bustle on the beach, while still offering a great view of the beach from the well stocked porch, was perfect. Quiet when you wanted it but close enough that you could go to the house to make a drink while hanging on the beach. All the furniture was extremely comfortable and having 2 bathrooms, even just for 2 people, was great. The roof top balcony is great for sunsets and hanging out any time. Air conditioning worked great and is well maintained. The 1 Living room unit would cool the entire place just fine, but each bedroom had a unit too. Water is always stocked so you never run low. The property management people made us feel right at home and we didn't want for anything at all that was not already there. There was even a basket of sunscreen and bug repellent by the door so you wouldn't forget to lube up on your way out, but the beach area out front was so well maintained that we really didn't notice many biting bugs. The gates out at the road being always closed gave the extra sense of security, and speaking of security, the security guards would usually run ahead of you to open the gates for you to drive out. I can't say enough good things about this place. It quickly became our favorite place to stay on the island and we hope to have the opportunity to stay here again soon. You won't find a better place to stay on West Bay Beach.......or really anywhere on the island. We had a most relaxing and enjoyable week stay here. Thank you for allowing us in your home. It truly feels more like a home than a typical rental or condo.

Heading back to Tortuga Beach House Spring 2017

  • 5 of 5

Excellent holiday! Everything was relaxful and so easy. Owner arranged an airport pick up (no hassle). Professional trusted driver stopped at a well stocked reasonably priced grocery store to pick up all the food & supplies we required. Meal prep was easy as the unit has a fully stocked gourmet kitchen with lots of extras (we are not used to having high quality utensils etc. when staying at other vacation rentals). The apartment is spacious, very clean, very comfortable mattresses and pillows.

Eating our meals on the large porch allowed us a view of the beach and the ocean while getting some shade, cool breeze and some quiet time. After a delicious dinner we made our way up to an incredible rooftop deck for a magnificent view of the stars (StarWalk app, very limited light pollution, privacy). The West Bay Village is professional managed so everything is very well taken care of and we felt safe.

Of course the beach is brilliant and full of life. Too many activities for us to take in but we couldn't get enough of the opportunity to SCUBA dive at such pristine area. World class diving. We were thrilled to find an excellent dive shop (Bananarama - professional, small boats, safety oriented) a couple of minutes down the beach.

We are planning a return visit to Tortuga Beach House in 2017 which really says it all!

Returning to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Last year was our first trip to Roatan and the Tortuga Beach House. After our years of travelling we finally found paradise. From the stunning views of the ocean, the immaculate accommodations, the fantastic scuba diving to the friendly island people, life just does not get better than this. We made the decision to return this year as there really was no other choice.

The owner Mike is very easy to contact and immediately answers all questions. He is genuinely concerned about your stay and ensuring Tortuga is in tip top shape.

The beach in front is stunning in its beauty. Life is very laid back to give you the chance to just escape life and enjoy.

Island House Rentals goes out of their way to ensure that everything detail is looked after. They arranged pickup and departure transportation so once you book Tortuga you have no worries as you are fully looked after.

We are already planning our return trip for next year already.

Roatan is the best kept secret.

Perfect Holiday Location to Reconnect With Family

  • 5 of 5

I arrived from the West and my cousin arrived from the East, together we met at Roatan after not seeing each other for many years. Torgtuga gave us a 'home away from home' atmosphere. This new beach house includes numerous indoor amenities to make a relaxing holiday perfect (including an awesome housekeeper). Outdoor amenities include 24 hour security, groundskeepers and being steps from the world famous West Bay Beach.

A pre-arranged driver was arranged for an airport pick up. With the help of the driver, groceries were purchased at a local supermarket. However, nightly supper was at one of many West Bay or West End restaurants/bars.

Snorkelling on the reef right off the beach was incredible! The coral is so alive with colour and varieties of fish abundant.

This property is vary spacious and CLEAN!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect location / perfect ambiance / beautiful view. The staff were available and very nice but didnt crowd. My wife and I enjoyed plenty of balcony time. I understand they are also adding a stargazing deck which should have magnificent views. We had such a wonderful time - we are going back. For Divers - I used La Roca - local - very small groups and lots of personal touch.
