Corazon de la Tortuga was named in honor of the huge number of sea turtles that make their way to this beach once a year to nest. It's a spectacular sight to see when the Loggerhead, Green and Hawksbill turles visit May through September. You'll have ring side seats to observe this natural marvel and capture memories that will linger long after you return home.

Corazon de la Tortuga occupies a large beachfront tract of land. You don't have to look too close to realize that the owner has thoughtfully planned this magnificent villa. From the curly-que "lawnscapes" to the awesome bathrooms, you'll be be in the lap of luxury.

In addition to the three oceanfront bedrooms in the main house and 1 bedroom in the casita, there is a studio/gym room which can be used as a sleeping area. Adjacent to the studio area is a handsome wood-topped bar.

Living and dining areas, furnished in attractive wicker, offer super views of the Caribbean. And, even the most discriminating cooks will love the over-size, modern kitchen facilities (but cook service is available, so don't spend too much time in the kitchen!). If you are serious about keeping up with your workouts–even while on vacation–you can retreat to your own private gym.

Enjoy the splendor of Corazon's outside living spaces, too. Oceanfront patios span the entire length of the villa on both the first and second floor. A kidney shaped pool is located on the garden side where you'll also find a barbecue grilling some tasty dinners. Even the rooftop has been outfitted for your vacation pleasure. You'll find small garden areas, BBQ grill, seating areas plus sun bed pads where you can get your all-over tan!
