Casa Tortuga, Surfside
3-BD Townhome with Pool Near Beach

Brand-new and ready for guests, Casa Tortuga in Surfside is a two-story townhome with 3 big bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a private swimming pool, all within a 10-minute walk of the beach.

If you like that “new home smell,” ultramodern architecture and immaculate interiors, it doesn’t get much better than this. Act now and you could be the first person to ever put anything in the fridge!

The two stories are connected by flights of stairs that appear to be suspended in midair — no walls around them, just steps and a steel handrail. The open design makes the main room look huge.

The kitchen is so new, we’ve barely had time to remove the plastic and tape from the stainless-steel kitchen and stove. It features granite countertops and a kitchen island, with gleaming sink and faucet, plus 21st-century cabinets and light fixtures.

Venture upstairs, and you’ll find the two guest bedrooms with spacious, modern wooden furniture and plush beds, plus sunny window views and walk-out balconies. The entire house sleeps seven.

Bathrooms are chic and sleek, with granite his-and-hers sinks, separate showers and tubs, and gorgeous tile and fixtures.

Step outdoors, and there’s a cool blue-tile pool behind your private walls, refreshing by day and gorgeous by night, surrounded by a landscaped yard.

There’s an outdoor shower to wash off the sand from the beach, and the property also features a private carport, pantry, laundry room and TV.
