OCEANFRONT AFFORDABLE LUXURY AT VILLA OCEAN REEF

Roatan Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 9

You can have your cake and eat it too at this truly oceanfront secluded condo on West Bay Beach. Within 25 feet of water's edge you can watch for the emerald flash in air conditioned comfort while you are mixing a Monkey Lala. Or watch your family come and go on the dive boat next door.

This second home is well equipped for any families' holiday enjoyment. The master suite with king bed is separated from the second bedroom via wide hallway and second bath. A queen bed and a twin bed make up the second bedroom. There are two well made queen sofa beds in the living area.

Each room has remote controlled air conditioning units that are ceiling mounted along with ceiling fans. The large screened sliders can be opened to let in the breeze off the ocean. This unit is connected to the development?s backup generator that is activated automatically when the power goes out.

It is like having your own private white sand beach from which sunset can be watched in air conditioned comfort. Snorkeling is a couple of minutes swim away while Grandma and Grandpa watch the excitement from the shaded deck.

Next door to this small condo development of 6 units is a small quiet dive resort and on the other side is a large family estate. This development is just a short walk down a well lighted beach to the major resorts and restaurants on West Bay Beach. Even so, it is secluded from them via the short point of iron shore. There are only private roads along this part of West Bay Beach providing access to residents and guests only.

There are ample dive resorts, restaurants, bars and shopping within a 10 minute walk of this villa so there is no need to have a car to drive to West End for the night life. Yet, you are protected from the hustle, bustle and noise via the barrier created by the short spit or iron shore with a boardwalk over it.

Left a career in IT Project Management and satellite systems engineering to move with my husband and teen son to Roatan. It was the best thing we could have done for our son and ourselves.

It is on the most beautiful beach on Roatan yet is not in the thing of all the hubbub. It is on the West Bay Beach side of the canal and the ridge. It does not have public road access to the beach where it is located and it is an easy walk to amenities.

It is water front with a white sand beach an coral very close to shore. It has fabulous views of the water through double pane glass sliders; split AC units and quiet concrete construction.

Step off the back deck into a snorkeling paradise!

  • Submitted: Aug 6, 2013

This was our 4th trip to Roatan and we decided to rent a house instead of our usual inexpensive cabin lodging. We contacted the manager late in the evening the night before our arrival and were patiently guided through the rental process and given all the information we needed without a single complaint.

When we arrived, we were greeted at the door and even had help carrying all of our belongings inside. There was plenty of room for our 2 families (8 people total: 4 adults & 4 children ages 11-17) to sleep, eat, play card games, and enjoy our week without feeling crowded. The kitchen was well equipped for us to make some meals at home. When we felt like dining out, there were many restaurants within a 5 minute walk.

It is a very private location, so if you prefer quite and calm...it's perfect. If you would like a busier vibe, all you have to do is walk around the corner to the main beach of West Bay. The best part of this location is that you can step off the back deck, take a few steps, and you are in a snorkeling paradise!

Wifi was not available in the house, however there are several restaurants nearby that allow you to connect when you order something. You could purchase wifi from the restaurant next door at a weekly rate of $35, but we all decided 'disconnecting' was a vacation must.

We rented a car for the first 2 days of our stay and used that time to explore some of the island, but it is not necessary to have a car. A water taxi can pick you up from the dock in the backyard if you want to venture to West End for the day, but they do not operate after the sun goes down. There are plenty of activities available close by to keep you occupied - snorkeling, swimming, PaddleBoarding, diving, zipline & fishing charters just to name a few.

We spent 11 days at the Villa Ocean Reef in Roatan, and all the family (2 adults and 2 children) really appreciate our stay there.
This is absolulety THE perfect place to be !!!!
We dived everyday at Anemona's dive center, with very nice people, and had diners in very good restaurants, all at walking distance of the villa.
The house is very confortable, with all the equipments we need.
Kevin and Jensen were perfect with us to facilitate our stay.
For sure, if we come again one day in Roatan... we'll go back there !!!!!!!!!!!!!
One again, many thanks Linda, for all the great contacts we had together !

The best vacation getaway on Roatan!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 14, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
In our opinion, this condo is in the best location on Roatan. Located just around the bend from West Bay Beach, it is quiet, relaxing and picturesque, and yet it is just a few minutes walk - and quite a pleasant walk at that - to restaurants, bars and shopping on West Bay Beach.
We snorkeled the reef right in front of the condo everyday, and the snorkeling was phenomenal! The snorkeling was so good that all of the other 'touristy' activities we had thought about doing took a backseat - we will just have to come back again sometime to do those other things.
We ate out several meals as it is really quite inexpensive. Some of our favorites were Bite on the Beach - excellent food (with the famous green moray eels in the evening), Beachers for their $15 lobster special which was very tasty, Fosters for an excellent breakfast, and Rudy's in West End for the best smoothies.
The condo was exactly as described - very roomy and comfortable with all of the amenities of home. Staying at Villa Ocean Reef was a pleasant process starting with booking and through our entire stay. Everyone was very helpful and prompt with any requests that we had. Jensen made sure that we had a ride anywhere we wished to go.
We will definitely return to Roatan and this condo!

Owner's Response: We are all so glad you had a wonderful holiday. I am especially glad to hear about your enjoyment of the snorkeling ~ my sentiments exactly. I did not tire of it after 6 years of living there. And it is good to hear that Rudy's is back with his wonderful smoothies. Please come and stay with us again so you can enjoy the gardens and breathtaking views. Thank you, Linda Kay

Paradise found!

The location is perfect. Just off the main "tourist beach" on the West end. Nice beach area just in front of the house, with private pool, hammock, and beach chairs. Plenty of restaurants, shopping and convenient mini mart just a short walk down the beach. Wonderful crew to work with booking, transportation and on site assistance!! Will definitely go back. The water is gorgeous and clear!!
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are all very pleased that you found Bayside, Villa Ocean Reef and our services to be worthy of a return. We look forward to it. Linda Kay

Villa Ocean Reef is in a great location, within walking distance to West Bay Beach and a quick water taxi ride to West End. The plunge pool is refreshing after a day of snorkeling on the reef just in front of the condo. Jensen was an asset to get us to the South Shore Zip Line, Iguana Farm, La Sirena, and mangrove tour to name a few! We even saw the green flash at sunset from the deck of the pool....awesome! Loved the lemon pepper fish and coconut shrimp at Beacher's, monkey la-las at Bananarama, and cold Salva Vida (3 for $5) on the beach. Swimming with the dolphins at Anthony's Key Resort was a real treat! You must buy fresh fish and cook it on the gas grill.....delicious and so inexpensive! This vacation rental was perfect for our family of four!!

This vacation home is located ocean front (20 ft from water's edge) in a secluded area of West Bay Beach due to its private road access. Voted one of Earth's 10 most beautiful by National Geographic, West Bay Beach is most affluent destinations on Roatan. The bay is sheltered yet it gets fresh currents from being at the very western end of the island. It is west of West End with a mountain ridge between the two. West End was a busy dive destination while West Bay was only accessible via boat. West Bay's beach is blocked by resorts to vehicle traffic.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, shelling, wildlife viewing, spa, mini golf
