About Ken Saxton
I am a avid scuba diver, sailor, fisherman and love to travel to tropical places. I have been coming to Belize for over 25 years. I never dreamed that I would end up building a house here, but it happened. Villa Tortuga is finally ready after a long 4 years of hard work. Now it's time for the easy part. For you to enjoy it! My goal is to make your adventure/vacation as easy and stress less as possible. I want everyone to leave Villa Tortuga with amazing memory's to last a life time. You are fortunate enough to have my friend Patojo who is a local that was born on the island and his wife Sabrina will be your on site host. Patojo is a local legend, dive guide and trained most of the guides on the island. He and his dad & brothers are the ones who set up the buoys at all the dive sites to tie your boat off to so the reef didn't get damaged with anchors back in the day before being environmental was cool. They also found and named all the dive sites you see on the maps. I will be off site but available anytime if needed.
Why Ken Saxton chose San Pedro
I bought the land in June of 2014 and started building in January 2015. Completed the build in January of 2019. I built this property for my retirement and to share with my family and friends. It is located on the prettiest turquoise water on the island. Just take a look from google earth and find the brightest blue water on the island and that is where I built Villa Tortuga. I will use as a vacation rental property until I can get down there full time. 4 years to build and now for the easy part. Enjoy it!!!!
What makes this House unique
Villa Tortuga is 2 separate units each 2 bedroom and 2 bath. The owner unit is the upstairs unit and the downstairs is the guest/rental unit. Both are available for vacation rentals. If you need a 4 bedroom rent the whole house. Oversized verandas with 2 hammocks and mahogany patio furniture. Amazing views of the reef 3/4" mile off shore. Just a 10 minute kayak to the reef. This part of the island is very quite and at night the stars come out. Lay down on the lounge chair on the roof top patio and enjoy the night sky!!!! It's your only private island paradise. Chill out in the hammocks in the morning and just listen to all the song birds sing. If you do this every morning you will notice the same birds hanging out in the same places. In the back corner of the house is Jurassic Park. We have around a dozen iguanas living under the caretaker house. I usually feed them some fruit and vegetables in the morning before I leave. They also like any left over breakfast eggs. They eat pretty much any soft food. Cheap entertainment. The house was designed with the trade winds in mind to keep the house cool with the air flow from the front and out the back. The natural limestone does not retain the heat like concrete so it keeps the house cooler and easy on the bare feet. All the walls are 8" blocks with 1" of concrete on each side and reinforced with rebar and filled with concrete making Villa Tortuga one of the strongest houses built on the island, if not the strongest.
