Overview

Roatan Condo Rental Photos and Description

Ocean & Beach Front Two Bedroom Villa Sleeps up to 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.

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 to the major resorts and restaurants on West Bay Beach yet 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.

About The Owner

Lived full time on West Bay Beach for 6 years while home schooling son. Left a career in IT Project Management and satellite systems engineering to live my dream on Roatan. While living on the island I developed a botanical bug repellent which is still marketed on the island.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2003

Why The Owner chose Roatan

What makes this condo unique

It is has tremendous views of the water and is right on West Bay Beach. It has easy access to amenity without the traffic and noise associated with being near it.

Peace and quiet on a private stretch of sand

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for North American luxury with room service and the works, you'll have to go elsewhere and spend three times as much. If you want to sleep right in the middle of the dance floor with DJ throbbing, head to Infinity Bay. However, if you want peace and quiet, unfettered views of the blue green sea from your private patio and your private beach, these villas will be home.

The condo is separated from West Bay proper by the rocking outcrop of Las Rocas dive resort. It has its own a stretch of private beach, with the reef a few hundred yards offshore providing decent snorkeling and calm waters. There's a bit more eel grass here than in the heavily trafficked West Bay, but the solitude was well worth it. Being apart from West Bay was a blessing. Just a few minutes walking brought us right to the action, but we could easily escape the parties and throngs of holiday revelers.

The unit we rented (Bayview 3b) was not super luxurious, but was perfectly comfortable and well appointed. We never once turned on the satellite TV, but it was an option. The kitchen had literally everything one might need (bakeware, fry pans, pots, blender, to-go mugs, coffee maker, lots of filtered potable water, etc). We self-catered nearly every meal, though many restaurants sit within easy walking distance.

Our unit was on the ground floor with 3 steps going down to the beach. We spent nearly all of our waking hours either in the sand and sea, or on the porch. The porch is semi-gated, has a handful of lounge chairs, along with a large glass table and 6 chairs for the table. The porch was very well shaded in the afternoons, and midday, when sun was strong, we simply moved the lounge chairs under the trees (just in front of the condo, in the sand) to get shade.

We highly recommend this condo to any and all travelers. It seemed especially nice for families (we brought our a 9-month old baby and his 75 year old grandma).

Family Friendly Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for my family of four, spacious and comfortable. Everyone we worked with was fabulous. Linda took care of all of our arrangements, Jensen got us to and from the airport, Kevin checked in on us regularly and when we had a problem with one of the air conditioners had someone there to fix it within an hour.

The snorkeling just off shore was amazing. It is a little bit of a swim off shore, but the water is very shallow. My 10 year old managed it like a champ. We rented kayaks from Las Rocas for $10 for 4 hours. We also used Las Rocas to arrange zip lining at South Shore, they picked us up and then took us to West End when we were done. We walked to Gumbalimba Park (the tour is nice, don't waste your money on the zip line - go to South Shore). We enjoyed our quiet beach, but when we wanted to check out the excitement, the West Bay Beach was just around the corner. The small pool was perfect for cooling off, the kids loved it.

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Linda for sharing this piece of Paradise with us. This place is located right on the beach with a private deck and a wonderful splash pool. (aka an unheated hot tub) The place is clean and spacious with 2 bathrooms. The outlets are all like we have in America. Bottled water was provided and everything was in working condition. There is a good restaurant called Las Rocas within 100 yds, food was good and Happy Hour starts at 3. Linda arranged for us to be picked up at the airport by Jensen. He drove us around, was always on time and made us feel comfortable. I would not recommend renting a car. His prices were always reasonable. The grounds crew was attentive and friendly.

Not as advertised

  • 2 of 5

First of all, I need to say that Linda, the booking manager was excellent. Also, the location of the condo is wonderful. It's close to restaurants yet, far enough away from the busy part of the beach where the cruise ship folks go. However, the unit is not "luxury or carefully maintained" as described on the website. The unit looks like it was built in the late 90's and the furnishings and window treatments look like they have not been updated since. It is very tired and musty smelling. The only glasses we had were some old plastic glasses (no wine glasses) until we complained. They then brought some real glasses. The master shower handles had magic marker writing on the tile as to where the handles should be kept. Even so, we had no hot water. We had complained about the pressure and thought that once we had a new shower head, things would be better. But, they were not. They did fix it but, the magic marker on the tile is not, "luxury". We loved Las Rocas which is right next door. Breakfast was $4... Definitely not worth cooking. BTW...no dishwasher. The pool was very disappointing. There was a rim of grime around the top go the water. We were told that the owner is going to paint it. But, not enticing to go in. Love the location but, would not stay in this unit.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that your holiday was not as nice as it could have been with attention to the furnishings and maintenance. This has been brought to the attention of the owners who are scheduled to be there in order to attend to these matters. I have asked other guests before and after this visit if the pool is being cleaned. The response is consistently, 'yes, daily'. The ring was something that was painted on by a previous maintenance person.

Met every need

  • 5 of 5

Our group spend 2 weeks in Roatan. Our first week was spent in Villa Ocean Reef and we all agreed that this condo was better then the move we made to a larger home on a different part of the island. I truly can't think of anything we were missing. Booking and questions were easy with Linda. Transportation was arranged before we landed and made getting to the condo easy. when we arrived we were greeted by kevin and was given a wealth of information to help us get accustomed to the island.

I can't say enough about the location of the condo. We had blissful peace and quiet but just a miniscule walk around the corner gave us full access to the busy west bay beach and lots of great restaurants. The restaurant next door, Las Rocus, was probably one of the best parts of our vacation. Our party was 4 adults and 3 kids and being able to enjoy happy hour next door within eyesight of the condo was priceless.

the only negative which is not a fault of the condo was the bugs. When people mention bug spray they mean it!

Getting to west end was so simple by simply standing on the las rocus dock and hailing a passing water taxi. Most of the restaurants are priced similar to home but deals could be found in west especially if you like the baladas. Most everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful and i would definitely consider this condo and island again.

Owner's Response: The location of this condo with its waterfront view of a private beach within easy access of much amenity does much for the enjoyment of a holiday in the Caribbean.

Step off the back deck into a snorkeling paradise!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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
