Turtle Casa is owned by two families: Mark & Katie Waller ( Durango, CO), Jeff & Dody McGee (Katie's brother - Clarkston, MI).
Claire Bloor purchased this house in 2007
We chose Roatan because of the Islands undeveloped natural beauty and value in a Caribbean Island destination. Unlike so many tropical places, Roatan still has a wonderfully authentic Island feel. There are beautiful beaches on Roatan that you can go to and not see another soul for hours. There is also the great bustling locales with great restaurants, beautiful beaches and lots of activities. We also Love that the Island is mountainous and covered with tropical rainforest.
I just want to start by saying that, from start to finish, Claire and Desiree were quick to respond to my emails, request and questions. They also provided excellent customer service from start to finish. Upon arriving on the island, Claire , Kevin and Desiree met us at the airport and took us to Turtle Casa (houses on Roatan do not have addresses) and showed us around. The house was large enough for our family of 18 and had ample cooking space and refrigerators (one on each floor). The pictures/descriptions of the house and other write ups are accurate. We took advantage of the pre-arrival grocery delivery which allowed us to start eating and drinking upon arrival. We used all their recommendations from Blue Island Diving, Good Eats Gourmet Chef, The Bulk Gourmet, Tranquils Bar and Grill, Daniels Monkey Farm, and Islandertours taxi service. Juan Carlos with Islandertours had taxis ready every time we called and his drivers were professional and acted as a tour guide while driving us around. Turtle Casa was clean and had everything we needed. Turtle Casa sits on the beach with easy access to good snorkeling on the shallow side of the briefer reef just off the dock (this is were all the snorkel tours take you by boat and the dive boats are on the other side of the reef where it drops to 125 feet). The kayaks were available and the dock offered great sunset views and ocean breezes. It was a short walk to Anthony's Key Marine Institute & Resort as well a short walk to the main road for catching any taxi driving by. The locals living in the area were very nice and we all felt safe. The only issue we had the entire 10 days was one of the air conditioners (top floor) quit working on the Christmas Sunday and Kevin had a air conditioning repair man out on Monday morning to fix it. Overall, I highly recommend Turtle Casa and especially Blue Reef Properties (can't say enough about their professionalism).
Turtle casa was perfect for my group of friends and I. We were greeted at the airport, where Claire and Kevin showed us to the place. When we arrived, we were very impressed with how clean and spacious it was. The beach and dock were fantastic and the house felt secure. Our group of ten had more than enough room and getting around the island was easy with a truck. Claire was very helpful in answering all our questions and you could tell that Claire, Kevin and Desiree wanted to help us have a great vacation. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone with a big group looking to travel to Roatan.
Turtle Casa was fine for our big group. Use their kayaks and snorkel right out to the reef with great structure. Saw octopus, permit, barracuda, lobster, lotsa fish. Paddle down to Anthony Key and free dive a plane right in the harbor or watch dolphin show there too..No complaints whatsoever about the house. The best part was charter Capt. Tim and mate Michelle right next door. We had a great time fishing and day tripping with them.Their boat RuthlessRoatan.com docks right in front of the house. Walk 2 blocks up the hill behind the house and catch a collectivo to west end to 30 lemps ($1.50).
This beautiful house was everything we were told/saw in the photos and more!!!! Our group rented the whole house for 10 days of fun under the Honduran sun. With 14 crazy Canadians under 1 roof you would think at times it would seem a little crowded..... never the case. All 3 levels had ample living areas and when you combine that with our own private dock we had a home away from home in paradise. The main living area with the games room, stereo and flat screen was the place to be when we weren't exploring the island or in the brilliant blue waters just beyond our back door.
Our hostess and host, Claire and Kevin Bloor of Blue Reef Properties, went above and beyond our expectations. From the moment we landed they were there to greet us and help with our every need! Because we had such a large group they brought extra transportation for us (we had rented a vehicle) which they knew we would need. They drove us to the local grocery/liquor store on our way to our mansion on the beach all the while explaining during the trip the history of the island and some must see sights. Upon arrival they made sure we knew all the features of the home and before they left they gave us a cell phone loaded with their personal numbers to use in case of emergencies. What more could we need?
We loved the beaches and one beach side bar in particular called Sundowners. They brought out a huge flat screen so the Canadian crowd could watch hockey..... it was also one of the few bars that could handle the influx of 14 thirsty people with ease.
I highly recommend this property, the property management company of Blue Reef Properties and Claire and Kevin Bloor.
We spent a week in the beach suite. Kevin,Claire, and Desiree were fabulous. They meet us at the airport and took us to get groceries and then to the house. You could not ask for a better view to wake up to each morning. Everyone we encountered in Roatan was extremely friendly and polite. We look forward to our next trip to Roatan.
This place was wonderful. First time we have ever been met at the airport and shown the way to the house. Was also shown grocery stores along the way. Really great beach steps from the house. Had plenty of things to do that was fairly close. Great lunch's and dinners at west end. Owner was wonderful as were the people that worked for her. We would stay here again. We stayed in the gaming suite and it was worth it. The day before we left, a group of people moved in upstairs and it sounded liked they moved the furniture around half the night but ala in all, we had a great time.
