Following the tremendous response to our first vacation home, Kachina Cay, we are so excited to offer Tortuga Cay to the Galveston vacation market. As our guests have come to expect, no expense was spared with the remodeling of Tortuga Cay.
Borrowing from Walt Disney's mission for Disneyland, our mission for Tortuga Cay is simple...'to be a place where friends & family can have fun together.'
Tortuga Cay is a place where families can bike to the beach on our complimentary 'beach cruiser' bicycles. A place where children can fish from our pier or kayak in the protected canals of Jamaica Beach (we provide kayaks & life vests at no cost). This is a place where parents can relax on the deck, knowing the kids & pets are playing safely in our fully-fenced yard; and a place where friends can enjoy a day of boating right from our slip or simply spend the afternoon relaxing by the fireplace.
Above all else, Tortuga Cay is a place to get away for awhile, relax, and enjoy life with each other!
Fishing Guide Service: Are you looking for some SERIOUS fishing during your stay? If so, our professional guide service is available to pick you up right at our pier for a full day or half day bay fishing excursion. Just walk right downstairs and hop on the boat... it doesn't get more convenient than that! Simply inquire when reserving your vacation and we'll take care of the rest!
Our amenities...: Following an extensive renovation, Tortuga Cay now features beautiful granite counter-tops, glass tile back-splashes, all new stainless appliances, two fully renovated decks overlooking the expansive lagoon and much, much more. With three decks overlooking the water the home features water views from virtually every room in the house. The layout of the home makes it easy for families and groups to travel together; three bedrooms total with two bedrooms upstairs (and away from the main living area) and two decks adjoining the king bedrooms.
The beautiful stone fireplace with inlaid nautical tiles, features an electric fireplace operated with the push of button... the heating function is optional making the ambiance of a crackling fire possible any time of year, with no risk of burning to pets or children.
For parents traveling with young children... lockable safety gates on both the upstairs deck and the fully-fenced yard help keep your children & pets safely away from the water. Child safety gates are provided to keep your little ones away from the interior staircase. A high chair and pack-n-play crib are available for your use (please bring your own crib sheets). (A note from the owners... we have a 2-year old and a 3-year old of our own, and have designed this home with them in mind. We have taken great care to ensure our home allows your children to play safely AND allow parents to enjoy their vacation without constant worry.)
Our private dock is equipped with an underwater fishing light to help draw in the 'big ones' after dark! Trout, red fish, drum, and several other varieties are frequently caught from our deck!
Amenities include: 55' LCD TV, cable TV (in living room AND king bedrooms) and complimentary high-speed wifi, washer/dryer, Moen adjustable shower heads with massage setting, Tempurpedic king mattresses, attached boat slip, deck ladder for swimming in the canal, 2 single kayaks and a tandem kayak w/ paddles & life vests, 2 beach-cruiser bicycles and a tandem 2-person bike w/ helmets, covered hammock & swing, beach chairs, boogie-boards, all linens, towels, blankets, dishes, etc... all of this and more is included with your stay!
(Please note... if 'Tortuga Cay' is not available for the dates of your stay, our other home 'Kachina Cay' is located just across the canal, and features a similar sleeping arrangement, with the same high standards and amenities.

Pets: Your pets are part of your family and are always welcome in our home with no additional pet deposit. The yard has been designed to give them room to play safely and away from the water.
