TOUCAN BLUE BEACH HOUSE WITH SPECTACULAR VIEW

Roatan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Toucan Blue is a beautiful beach house located 20 kilometers east of the Roatan International airport, mid-island on the scenic north shore in Milton Bight. The water of the Caribbean is just steps from the front door and the second largest barrier reef in the world is approximately 300 meters before you. Enjoy the serenity as you look out upon the sea and the never tiring view.

Roatan, one of the Bay Islands of Honduras, is included in the book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die by Patricia Shultz. For years, Roatan was known mainly to divers for the exquisite diving adventure around the barrier reef. The improved infrastructure on the island now brings growing tourism and cruise ship passengers. English is the language of the island, with Spanish widely spoken, and US currency is accepted.

Toucan Blue is perfect for divers, snorkelers, family, or friends. It is a single family home with main living areas and four private bedrooms with flexible rates depending on the number of guests. The bedrooms not required will simply not be made up or accessible, they will not be rented to others. Escape the tourist crowds for the solitude, peace, and tranquility of Toucan Blue.

There are only four other homes on the white sand peninsula that share the dock with Toucan Blue, with security on site. At the end of the dock there is a thatched palapa with benches—a great place for morning coffee at sunrise or beverages at sunset. From the palapa setting, both sunrise and sunset can be events.

The house is decorated in lively Caribbean colors and each room has ceiling fans and air conditioning, if needed. The bright, open main floor on the upper level includes the living area, kitchen, dining, half bath, and huge deck. The large sapphire blue bedroom with private bathroom/shower is also on the upper level with patio doors opening to the deck. It may not be well suited to small children.

There are indoor/outdoor speakers for music while upstairs in the house or on the deck. There is Direct TV (basic plan) and DVD player for those times that you want to be indoors, and you can keep in touch other others using the wireless internet connection. There are many books, games, puzzles, music and movie choices at the house for your enjoyment.

The large, covered, ceramic tiled outdoor deck is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the tranquil setting and endless view. It is likely the place that you will spend most of your time while at the house. It is also a great place to laze in the hammocks, listen to the waves breaking over the reef, watch the hummingbirds at the feeder, or sit by the railing and gaze at the star filled sky at night. Shade sails have been added to help keep the deck cool by blocking some of the afternoon sun.

The patio table seats six with another table and chairs for additional deck seating/dining available. The BBQ grill is handy adjacent to the kitchen, in a separate deck area. A local cook is available for a nominal fee if you are interested in having island meals prepared at the house.

The lower level includes the large emerald green bedroom with private bathroom/shower, and the two other bedrooms that share a full bathroom with tub/shower. There is a laundry room with full size washer and dryer. An outdoor shower is available to wash off the sand before entering the home.

Enjoy the stunning views of the Caribbean Sea from this vacation home, paddle the sea inside the barrier reef in the two provided sea kayaks, stroll the white sand beach, view sea life from the dock, or gently swing in one of the hammocks on the deck.

For divers, a Subway dive shop is located at nearby Turquoise Bay Resort. You may be able to make arrangements to be picked up at the community dock located immediately in front of Toucan Blue.

Toucan Blue was recognized in July 2011 for a 'Rated Excellent' digital badge. 'This exclusive award recognizes outstanding vacation rentals based on reviews from past guests.'

The modern international airport welcomes direct flights from the US, with many more flights that connect through cities such as La Ceiba and San Pedro Sula on the mainland.

Our property managers will meet you upon arrival and escort you to the house, stopping at the supermarket on the way if you wish. They will familiarize you with Toucan Blue and surroundings, and will be available for any questions you may have while you are a guest. There is a cell phone at the house for use during your stay.

Island attractions include zipline/canopy tours, botanical gardens, golfing at the new Black Pearl golf course designed by Pete Dye, and water sports of all kinds. Roatan is a diver’s paradise, but you can also snorkel, swim with dolphins, kayak…or just relax. Enjoy the views of the crystal clear water in various shades of blue and the lush green hills from overlook vistas.

To further enjoy the sights of Roatan, we have a 4-wheel drive, automatic transmission Isuzu Trooper SUV for rental to interested guests for economical rental rate of $350/week. It comfortably seats 5 passengers. You will need a vehicle to get around and explore the island.

Make Toucan Blue your home while experiencing the beautiful island of Roatan!

Guestbook comments from the owner
"Truely Wonderful Roatan Island Vacation Home"

From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and at home. We loved the floor plan of the home with the Master upstairs and 2 others below nicely facing the beach. What a view from all. Our favorite spots are tied between the palapa at the end of the dock and the awesome deck/living area pictured in description. They even had beach towels and a few water shoes (Very much needed) to use. To walk out a few feet from the dock and see the beautiful red star fish and The Kayaks were definitely a plus. As well as the option of the car, this is a must. The location of the house is about half way in the middle of the Island 45 minutes to an hour from the very populated and touristy "West End" We were there in the west end one day to try Sea trekking, which was a blast, but were happy to get "home" to Toucan Blue to truely get away from it all.

The caretakers Wilfred and Daniel and their families are great resources and kept the beaches beautiful for our stay. Wendy, Wilfred’s daughter was a great guide for our walk into Milton Bight one evening to pick up food and go to one of the local bars for a cerveza. Quite an experience! Wendy also cooked a good meal for us during our stay. Her warm smile and gracious manor will always be remembered.

The nice folks at Subway water sports at Turquoise Bay (almost next door) took us on some great diving/snorkeling tours and a fishing trip. Captain JT was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Dive guide Osmond was a fun guide as well. They even dropped us off at the dock in the evening.

It was wonderful having Turquoise Bay resort nearby to dine as well. They had a good menu and a beautiful view.

The only thing we didn’t like were the bugs (no see-ums) we used 3 cans of off while we were there. It was very nice of the owners to provide a new bottle upon arrival. I guess the bugs only like some people because the other couple traveling with us only had a few bites. My son, husband and I got more than our share.

The bugs won’t keep us away though. We are planning on returning and would welcome the chance to stay at Toucan Blue House!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
If you like your bed made daily, cabana boys to bring you drinks, fine dining, and mingling with tourist, DO not go here as you will be completely disappointed. If you don't need any of the above, book now! For our 25th anniversary, I tried to find a place that was quite, off the beaten path, secluded and private & affordable! Toucan Blue checked every box.

This place is truly the epitome of paradise. Palm trees, fresh coconuts, humming birds, parrots and song birds, lizards, sunsets that will take your breath away, sunrises that will wake you up, tin roof that will make you yearn for a little rain at night, fresh conch and lobster from the old man in the dugout canoe, local dinning that is superb and affordable......

Lynda was very responsive from the day I sent for information to Liz, the island property manager who emailed answers to every question we had.

Liz met us at the airport in our rented Isuzu trooper(rent from Lynda!!! You will see why) and took us to Eldons to get groceries. What an experience. We are truly spoiled in the USA! Also stopped off at the gourmet store for a few things like steak and rum.

Driving to the house, prepare for a drop off the main road down a gravel, steep road to the bottom. Then onto the wooden road across the mangroves to the compound. Wow! Daniel or Wilfred will greet you. They are the on-site "security guards". Not sure what they are guarding but they live under the palm trees for three days at a time. Every morning, you wake up and the entire property is raked and. Nothing but sand remains.

Caution- apply bug spray every day frequently! We read it and followed the "RULE" and had no problems. We saw some tourist on a trip to West Bay who didn't follow the RULE and will pay the price with bad bites.

Snorkeling off the reef at the house was unbelievable. Clear, calm, fish, coral, etc! Kayaking was very cool. Kind of like being in a huge swimming pool.

We never turned the air condition on. Slept with window and blinds open every night with fan on. Breakfast on the upper deck, fishing, port royal beer, siesta and off to McNabbs in Jonesville or Cals cantina or Camp Bay resort for lunch. Cooked on the grill every night. We were told to be off the roads by dark. There are no street lights so we heeded the advice.

We sunned on the pier to avoid the no seeum bugs and would advice you to do this as well. The palapa was a perfect sunset spot. Bring water shoes!

Enjoy

Everything we had expected it would be

  • 5 of 5
This trip was our deferred honeymoon. And we could not have picked better. We were originally looking at Belize and then chose Roatan for availability and lower airfare. Everything that was stated in the review just before this one was absolutely true for us as well.

We were looking for a low key, uncrowded beach location and Toucan Blue fit that bill to a T. The pictures on VRBO are "what you see is what you get" Everything was as described. The views from the deck are stunning and yet it still allows for some privacy. The main bedroom upstairs was perfect. It was nice to have some soft music on the deck as we lounged. We used the kitchen mostly for breakfast and otherwise ate out at recommended restaurants.
Great movie selection. Decent CD music selection.
The kayaks were some of the best I've used.
Definitely need to apply DEET twice a day. Didn't one afternoon and 50 bites appeared on my back!
The Isuzu Trooper at the house that we also rented was perfect for getting around the island and didn't give us a bit of trouble.
Can't say enough good things about Liz. She was invaluable and just fun to talk to. Everything she recommended was good if not great. And she was always open to hearing about our other finds that went well.
Spoke with the owners via phone and email and they made the process for renting as easy as could be.

We always like to try new and different things but we both said we could easily see ourselves coming back to Toucan Blue a second time.

If you are looking for laying out on the beach vacation spot, this may not be for you. If you are looking for beautiful views, snorkeling and scuba adventures, friendly, safe adventures around the island, this is the place!

Secluded Roatan Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five (2 adults, kids ages 11, 11, and 13) stayed a Toucan Blue for two weeks in March. We were looking for a beachfront location away from the crowds that allowed us to experience the true life and culture of Roatan. Toucan Blue met our needs and much much more. It is definitely secluded - Milton Bight is a small village off the main road about half way up island. Toucan Blue is one of a handful of beachfront houses in a small development. There are no crowds...trust me. The house was clean, well appointed, and boasts a stunning view of the reef. The covered deck is huge and seems to be the center of most of the action in the house. The kitchen is reasonably roomy and very well set up. The sitting room has a flat screen and a great selection of movies. The master bedroom is amazing and the other three bedrooms (lower floor) are very big...all with access to bathrooms. The BBQ worked great - especially for the lobster, conch, and fresh fish! Outside of the house, the kayaks were a great way to get out to the reef for some snorkeling. We found the best snorkeling to be out near the cut (to the west) but its not for beginners or those timid in deep water. Yet, just out in front of the house, the snorkeling is quite good and there are lots of shallow spots with tonnes of coral and fish. Watch for sand flies on the beach - DEET worked well as did Cactus Juice...just make sure you apply often. This was not unique to Toucan Blue though - seemed to be the general consensus around the island. The pool came in handy for those days when we wanted to avoid the salt water and just cool off.

The people of Milton Bight were very friendly - we met a number of the local residents and enjoyed hearing about their life on the island. The security guys at the house are very attentive, friendly, and definitely gave us that 'extra' peace of mind. Liz (property manager) was awesome. She is very well connected on the island and had LOTS of excellent suggestions for tour operators, restaurants, etc...she was very accommodating and answered all of our questions quickly. Having access to Liz's expertise and knowledge is a definite bonus when renting Toucan Blue. As well, all of our dealings with the owners were excellent. Lynda was very responsive and professional. The entire transaction went very smooth.

Generally, our experience on Roatan was unforgettable. I would highly recommend this destination and Toucan Blue for a family vacation.

We toke a trip in a boat to go snorckleling and spended the day on an island (Pegeant Key); we went to have the most perfect Lobster in the Island, at La Sirena in Camp Bay, also is a perfect place to do snorckleling and cayaks.
