BEACH FRONT SUNSET HOUSE WITH DOCK & SWIMMING PLATFORM

Roatan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 bath + Detached Unit 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8-12+)

Roatan is in the Bay Islands of Honduras and is the best kept secret of Central America. It is like stepping back in time. Please view our new video of the island and the house. Our property is professionally managed by Ruth and Brad of Island House Roatan Management company.

The house includes an outdoor kitchen & beach bar in front of the house with a Napoleon Grill with a searing station, double rotisserie and wood smoking tray.

A biodegradable and pet friendly mosquito misting system has been installed and is working with excellent results.

This house has two bedrooms upstairs, each with a king bed. The living, kitchen and dining rooms are on the upper level as well. There are two additional bedrooms downstairs; one with a king bed, the second with two singles, there's a bathroom which joins these two lower level bedrooms.

If four bedrooms is not enough for your group, there is a separate private apartment available that will sleep four to six (two queen beds, a new queen sleeper and 2 foam pads available for children).

You can walk down the beach for breakfast and then return to the house, grab your gear and snorkel at one of the worlds nicest beaches, 'West Bay Beach', it is a short walk (7/8 mile) from the house; the diving, snorkeling and sunbathing are excellent here. Or you could snorkel out (400 yards) in front of the house, to the Mesoamerican barrier reef, the worlds second largest barrier reef. The translucant turquoise water's here have a average temperture of 80 F / 27 C. The fishing is excellent for Mahi-Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Barracuda, Sailfish and Wahoo, which are abundant in these waters.

On the walk between the house and West End there are some rock outcroppings that you will have to walk over, or if the tide is out you can walk around them in shallow water. On the walk along the beach to West Bay, there is a metal bridge that you will have to use. Or you could just stand on the end of our dock and flag down a water taxi.

After an afternoon of snorkeling, you can walk to town for the evening dinner and night life, then take a cab home, or stay at home and enjoy the beautiful sunset and grill your fresh caught seafood for dinner!

The sunsets are what this house is famous for; it's right on the beach and has a dock and palapa to sit under and sip your drinks while watching the sunset! The warm tropical air and warm water will entice you every time.

Although there is a dock at the house, it is not a private dock. In fact no dock on the island is private. You may find that locals will use it to have a break on their walk between West End and West Bay, they never stay long and are always very friendly.

Local charter companies will schedule a pick up at our dock for any diving, fishing or island adventure excursions you may have.

If you are not renting a car, the property managers can arrange your ride from/to the airport (which is recommended). At the time you make these arrangements they will let you know the cost. Otherwise, there are always taxis waiting at the airport and you can negotiate you own fare. If you do decide to rent a vehicle, it is recommended that you rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle, due to the road being in poor condition during the rainy season. Remember there are no house numbers of street names on the island, so at times the taxis will need some directions to the house.

Please come and visit us in Roatan, Honduras. Your next adventure to fun and sun!

*** PLEASE NOTE ***

Published rates are for the Upper Level 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom (main floor). Additional bedrooms can be added for an additional charge. Please scroll to the 'notes' beneath the rate chart to view the costs of differing options.

Purchased in 2008, I love Roatan! The first time I walked through the door I knew I was home. Gail and I have put our own special touches into this house and we both hope all who stay here enjoy themselves.

Brad & Ruth purchased this house in 2008

The diving, snorkeling & fishing are fantastic. The local people are so friendly. The fish and lobster are always fresh and the morning walks on the beach is one of my favorites.

The swimming and snorkeling are the best there is! The dock has a palapa to sit under to get out of the sun (with a hammock which hangs partially over the water). If you like the sun, there is a large swimming platform which is a great place to get a tan or to cannonball from (to splash all those tanning bodies). Or just relax on one of our water loungers. Don't forget to take the portable speaker with you to enjoy some music while on the dock. Fresh drinks are only a few steps away at the new beach bar.

It is truly amazing, I lost so much weight within tje first few days, its unbelievable.

The cottage was amazing as well. There are tons of things to do, like snorkeling, diving, fishing, and hiking.

I would recommend this vacation spot for anyone looking for a relaxing and enjoyable time.

Relax at Sunset House on Roatan

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 29, 2014

We had a wonderfully relaxing time at Sunset House with our adult children, six of us altogether. The property and beach were just as pictured on the website. Sunset House is clean and well equipped for outdoor fun: snorkels, kayaks, floatation devices and yoga mats. We appreciated the well-equipped kitchen and outdoor bar/barbeque area.
Situated approximately halfway between West Bay and West End, we could walk in either direction for about half an hour and be in town to enjoy restaurants and shopping. Highly recommend Oasis Restaurant in West End. If you don't feel like walking, stand at the end of the dock and flag a water taxi.
Ruth was incredibly helpful in answering questions and arranging transportation.
I have already recommended Sunset House to family and friends.

I stayed in a variety of accommodations during my six week stay on Roatan and the Sunset House was easily my favorite. The main house is awesome and has cooking facilities to feed everyone even if you pack the place, if you're into that cooking thing. It's also far enough away from the main tourist and population centers for privacy, while close enough that they are a quick water taxi ride or short hike away. The cleaning people keep the place nice and clean and the bug repellent system is all natural and really effective. The location also makes it a great place to take the kayak out to the reef and snorkel. The place is awesome, I had a blast, and if you go, I'm sure you will to. You should probably hurry though, because next trip THE BLENDER LEAVES WITH ME!

HOW DID WE PICK THE BEST HOUSE ON ROATAN ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 18, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
Our family chose the “Sunset House” on VRBO to rent for 10 days. What luck for us, with such a big selection of rentals, we picked the best house on the island. It’s in the center of everything, yet all the privacy you want…and after the first evening you’ll know how it got it’s name.

This home is stocked with every necessity. Plenty of towels, comfortable beds, beach towels and a kitchen like home. It was immaculate with plenty of room for our family of seven people to enjoy meals and morning coffee on the deck. Mark and Gail, have added so many personal touches to their wonderful home you instantly feel comfortable. They’ve thought of everything for guest’s to enjoy their vacation. Kayaks, snorkeling gear, numerous hammocks for your afternoon nap and a big bag of kids sand toys, that our grandson ran for the first thing every morning.

Upon our arrival, Ruth and Brad, property managers, welcomed us to the Sunset house. Through a very quick but thorough introduction to the house they left us with a programmed cell phone to call anytime with questions, requests or emergencies.

Johnny, the caretaker, lives behind the house with his sweet family. He’s up early, raking the beach and is always available to assist with any request always with a big smile!

Chris and Carlos, neighbors, arranged several wonderful all day excursions, taking the family to fabulous snorkeling spots. They also can to take you for some great fishing…and they definitely know where to go to catch fish! Nothing like fresh barbecued tuna in the covered beach/ bar with a first class grill…what a deal!

When you get tired of eating fresh fish that you catch…you can hire Blackie and Marty. They shop and arrive in the early evening to prepare your dinner…coconut shrimp is by far the winner. They clean up and leave you and your family to enjoy this wonderful “Island Meal”

No need to hire anyone but Marty for reliable transportation. (Blackie’s husband) He'll pick you up at the airport and include a stop at Eden’s market to pick up provisions to stock your vacation home. Also Marty’s transportation service was great for us in a last minute pinch, when the concierge from “At Your Service” was a “No Show” for our pre-paid expedited airport transfer on Saturday. Marty, quickly sent a driver to fetch us and our bags at a last minute request.

Thank you Mark and Gail…“You have a “super number one staff” in place to make the “Sunset House” a 5 + VRBO rental.

8 plus Sunset House = Great Times

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 18, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Our party of 8 adults stayed at Sunset House from March 8 -March 15, 2014. Some of us have stayed at multiple rental homes in the past and I must say that Sunset House exceeded our expectations. We have stayed on Roatan previously and this experience was far better than the others.

The house, beach, dock and bar are exactly as they appear in the pictures. We figured out how to use the blender at the bar pretty quickly and it got a workout the rest of the week. The kitchen is very well equipped and the grill is top shelf. The swimming area and the dock are great for any swimming ability.

The dogs running around were a little annoying at times but after they figured out that we were not giving them scraps, they left us alone. They did tend to bark a bit at night though.

We used Scuda Roatan, in half moon bay, for most of our scuba diving excursions. Very friendly people who were very patient with our less experienced divers.

We ate at some good restaurants. Our favorite was El Pisco in West End. Although our best meal was Chef Blackie's coconut shrimp and red snapper with key lime and coconut cream pies for desert. Also, Blackie's husband Marty Wood is a fantastic tour guide. We would higly recommend both of them.

Finally, I would be remiss if I did not post our appreciation of Ruth. she responded to all of our questions before, during and after our stay. One of our bags did not arrive with our flight. Ruth jumped right on that and the bag was delivered to the house before we got back from dinner the first night.
