About Melissa Marin Casa Tortuga

Carrie & Kelly Hayes

Melissa Marin Casa Tortuga purchased this house in 2013

Why Melissa Marin Casa Tortuga chose Puerto Carrillo

My wife and I fell in love with the Carrillo / Samara area many years ago and we looked high and low to find just the right area to build our Costa Rica dream home. After a long search we decided to build here in Loma verde for many reasons.

1) Beautiful Setting

2) Abundant Wildlife

3) Secure inviornment

4) Large pool and BBQ area

5) Friendly atmosphere

6) Very quite (No road noise)

7) Close to beach

8) Just far enough away from the hustle bustle of Samara

What makes this house unique

Our property is very unique in that it is the only gated communtity in the area and has 24/7 guards to add a little comfort and security to your stay.

Our community of Playa Carrillo is very safe but adding a little security never hurts.

Playa Carrillo was one of the most beautiful beaches that I have been to in Costa Rica. Casa Tortuga was nice as well and Melissa and David were so helpful to us. I would have liked it to be closer to the beach but it was only a five minute drive to Playa Carrillo. I would totally recommend Casa Tortuga!

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a month's stay at Casa Tortuga and what a lovely time we had there! The Casa is very well equipped, from the very comfortable beds to the well equipped kitchen. We have stayed in many self catering accommodations throughout Europe and it has probably the best kitchen with lots of dishes, pots and pans and storage containers......everything you need including a BBQ. The outside rancho has a very large seating area, lots of room for everyone and also has a bar fridge. The residents are very friendly and the pool area is inviting with a seating area and outside showers. We felt absolutely safe during our stay with 24 hour guard service.

All in all we had a great stay and will be returning next year. Melissa and David, the property managers are very helpful and the cleaning ladies are very thorough. Just five minutes to the beautiful beach and lots of restaurants to choose from.

Super Home in safe Community

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our one month CR vacation. We stayed at Casa Tortuga for 2 week the house, the beach, the country was all amazing. The pictures did not come even close to conveying the beauty. Everything was the best. Shopping was fun and easy, the sights were amazing and the beach in Carrillo a private oasis. We cannot wait to go back.

Just spent a month in Casa Tortuga the home is exactly as the pictures show. The home is well equipped with all the essentials you might need. The area is awesome close enough to town but far enough away to enjoy your privacy and peace and quiet (only the sounds of nature to keep you company). Amazing restaurants like El Suenio tropical just out the gates (1/4 mile to the right ) will make you feel right at home. This is our third year to this area and would highly recommend it for your stay in Gunacastle. The owner Kelly was more than helpful with all our needs and property manager Melissa and Dave where right on top of all our needs. Playa Carrillo is a truly beautiful beach cant wait to be back.
