Overview

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. The yard has banana, mango, almond, coconut, noni, and various other local fruit trees and the endangered Emerald Hummingbird hangs out quite frequently at the many Hibiscus plants we have and they are not camera shy.

There is an excellent place for children to play in the sand, or let them wade into the water, while you keep an eye on them while you are relaxing in your teak lounger.

This house has two bedrooms upstairs, each with a king bed. The living, kitchen and dining rooms are on the upper level as well with central AC. 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. Both rooms have AC.

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) and has 2 separate AC units.

Our neighbors live in Roatan full time and are right next door for any emergency or help with anything on the island. They are the nicest people you will meet. They help provide security and stability in our neighborhood and are always willing to help out our guests. They can provide fishing charters and are quite knowledgeable about all the local fish.

Yoni, who is our full time caretaker, speaks some English, but mostly speaks Spanish. He loves to fish and may tell you some of his fishing secrets. He lives on site and maintains the premises and grounds, and provides night time security by living in the rear of the property with his two young children and wife. He makes sure everybody is safe and sound, including our guests.

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 (1/2 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 very 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.

We have just added, for rent a 13' Hobie Cat Wave sailboat.

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.

About Brad & Ruth

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

Why Brad & Ruth chose Roatan

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The beautiful beachfront house is excellent for some r&r but also ideally located to go out for day trips snorkeling, scuba diving, ziplining etc. Watet taxis come by regularly but you can easily walk or kayak to the little towns on either side of the house. Lots of new renovations have been done to the house and the pride of ownership shows. The swimming was great and sitting out under the stars at night was spectacular. I would recommend this property to anyone. Spectacular!

A Special Place...

  • 5 of 5
This was my third stay at the Sunset House and I decided to stay in the back apartment above the caretakers quarters. It was great! The "Turtle Apartment" Has a full kitchen, full bath and two AC units! There is a very comfy couch that folds out into a bed in the living room too (not shown in the photos or video). My friends were staying in the main house and I didn't book until a week before my trip. The owners were very accommodating with my late booking by the way, no stress whatsoever.

Now for the updates... every time I come back there are updates... i love this place...

Solar Panels: The new solar panels keep the hot water hot... even outside in the outdoor shower. These are only on the main house (not the Turtle Apartment) however.

New Bathroom: The owners added a new bathroom in the back part of the main house so you don't need to go inside or upstairs if your just running in from snorkeling or swimming. Makes it really convenient when nature calls.

The Sailboat: I rented the 15 foot Hobie Cat one day and had so much fun I rented it again the following day. It's really easy to use and sooo much fun. It seats 4 but goes a lot faster with just 2 people... or even faster with just one person!!!

New paint and rugs and shades in the main house. Very nice updates! See the video for the latest.

AC: The two new AC units in the Turtle Apartment work great! They have remote controls and keep the apartment very comfy during the night. There is also a new fan in the downstairs bedroom (of the main house) fixed to the wall.

Staying in the back apartment was great. I really felt like one of the locals (not a tourist) and enjoyed getting to know the neighbors. Joni the caretaker lives downstairs and is extremely helpful with whatever you need. The entire estate is very safe.

My only complaint would be that I only stayed for one week... I need to stop doing this. Book the Sunset House for two weeks. TRUST ME. Overall I highly recommend the Sunset House and everything you see in the pictures and video is 100% accurate.

Everything the Listing Promises, and More

  • 5 of 5
Just back from a week at Sunset House and can't say enough nice things about it.
You can see all its many features in the listing: This is just to confirm that they are just as nice as you're imagining (not always true of vacation home listings!)
We rented the upper part of the house for a family of four and found the house, its amenities, the location, and everyone involved just great.
One thing you can't tell from the pictures though: The house is not isolated- it's has neighbor houses quite nearby on either side. This may not be what you envisioned, but it's a real bonus: The on-site caretaker and the neighbors are all friendly and helpful and add greatly to your sense of relaxation and security. If you had any concerns about security (being on a quiet stretch of beach a good walk away from any town), this is a big plus and should go a long way towards resolving them. And you'll still feel like the beach is yours alone.
All in, we'd recommend the house very highly!

Yeah! Everything Janet P says below.... time 2! This place is great. You don't need to look any future; book this house, you won't regret it. Couple things.....
Go fishing one morning with Chris and his Dad, (they live next door in the blue house)
Snorkel at the "Blue Channel" (about a mile or so from the house, maybe less)
Pack a flashlight for the walk back from dinners in West Bay. (ten minute walk)
Buy a couple donuts from the guy on the beach that looks like Santa, they are great!

WE HAVE FOUND OUR PARADISE!!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was absolutely perfect!! This setup is just right for family and friends to get away from reality and connect in the most beautiful place on Earth! Special shout outs to Marty (transportation to and from airport - timely and friendly - even stopped at the grocery store on the way in)...Blackie (his wife) came and cooked a special birthday dinner for us - totally delicious and not to be missed!! Neighbor Chris is invaluable (and adorable) with his connections and knowledge of the island and where to go to do whatever you have in mind. Yoni, the caretaker is fabulous! He raked the sand and made everything neat and ready for the day of fun and relaxing - he even went fishing with us - he and his family became our family, and we enjoyed many dinners together. Definitely go fishing - nothing beats catching and preparing your catch of the day on the amazing grill. Snorkeling at the house was so fun - lots of fish and lobsters to be seen - but also go to West Bay and snorkel the reef from that beach - the food and drinks are great - people are happy - snorkeling is the absolute best from there. Juan and Manuel were our fishing, snorkeling and diving masters. They came to the dock every day to get us and help us find the best fish (we caught fish when others were not catching) and places to dive and snorkel - highly recommend them - they really took care of us!! Every evening the scarlett macaws would fly over chattering - the most beautiful sight! We had fresh limes and mangoes every day. Don't miss a single sunset and if you are lucky enough to catch a tropical rainstorm - go for a walk in it, and then look for the double rainbows!! Just can't say enough about the comfort, cleanliness and well thought out details. Brad, Ruth and Sam are wonderfully welcoming and helpful from the time you reserve to the time you leave - and you will want to cry when you go! Best vacation EVER!! We will be back next year for sure...that's how great it was...we came home and made reservations right away!! This is a paradise found!!

Relax at Sunset House on Roatan

  • 5 of 5
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.
