Villa Tropical (VT Main)

"Villa Tropical" is both the name of our vacation rental business, and, the name of the 6-unit, three-story property centrally located on Shacks Beach/Playa Shacks. The Bottom Left of "BL" apartment unit itself, was the very first "shack," and first ever, public vacation rental on Shacks Beach, many moons ago. For over 25 years, the Villa Tropical (VT Main) Property has enchanted regular visitors with "first come first reserve" booking practices; and a "home away from home" hospitality that has to be experienced to comprehend. For a holiday weekend, this building books a year in advance. There are 6 centrally located units, 4 front to ocean and two to the back, office and store side. Internal stairs connect the units to each other and a shared laundry area. Remodeled several times and impeccably cared for, The Villa Tropical (VT Main) building's 4 oceanfront apartment units are located directly in front of, [looking over and in to], the Blue Hole Coral Reef and the 'Swimming Area' on Shacks Beach. The General Manager's Office, and the Villa Tropical Store and Gift Shop are also centrally located here.

The Villa Tropical (VT Main or simply "VT") property boasts a stunning large wood deck that juts out over the dunes (a picture takers favorite spot for the headshot with coastal background and breathtaking sunset…and wind blowing hair the 'right' direction J). Your beach showers are on the deck just steps down through a sea grape overgrown stair tunnel to the "Swimming Hole" – The BEST place to perch oneself on this beach because it's the only sandy access to the ocean for miles on either side.

There are 6 individual fully - equipped apartment units on the VT Main premises. There are two – two bedroom oceanfront units on the top level (TL and TR); and a two bedroom beside a studio on the lower (BL and FS). TR and TL share an upper deck and semi-private barbecue up top. BL and FS share a covered large ocean fronting deck adjacent to their oceanfront doors. The portion of the deck that juts out over the almond tree smothered dunes is community space for all presently staying in one of the 6 VT main apartments. The non-oceanfront units include a studio and one one-bedroom. They are located at the back of the house above the Office and Villa Tropical Store.
