LOOK NO FURTHER! ST. MAC'S CHARMING TRUE BEACHFRONT 1 BR APT

Roatan Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Attached Unit, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Look No Further! Why be steps or minutes from the beach when you can be right on the sand? St. Mac's is a traditional, Caribbean style stand alone villa (3 bedroom Upper Level and 2 one bedroom apartments) with loads of charm, and a spacious open floor plan. The Lower Level one bedroom apartment fronts the beach and cozy one bedroom garden apartment is nestled behind--right on the sand. Remodeled and updated in 2009, the well stocked gourmet kitchen features granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher in Beachfront unit. All the modern conveniences, plus an incredible Ocean Soundtrack--cooking with a view! The large dining area will be a perfect place to serve your fresh local fish, and outside your private Beachfront Garden awaits, lined with palm trees and lounge chairs. Float, swim, dive and snorkel to your heart's content in the clear, warm Caribbean waters that are your front yard. The very best reef for snorkeling is a few short paddles away!

Let the sound of waves lull you to sleep in the comfy King bedroom, easily converted into two twin beds if you wish. Soft pillows and nice sheets add to the total sleeping experience. You can choose to sleep either in fan cooled or Air conditioned comfort. The beachfront apartment has sliding doors that open out onto a private garden patio, with table and chairs ideal for dining al fresco under the stars. You may also choose lounging in your hammock, just lazily reading and dozing. The calendar shown here is for this Beachfront Apartment; please contact us for rear Garden apartment availability.

Brand new comfy furniture is in your spacious, open living/dining area, and all your favorite Satellite TV channnels, a DVD player and WiFi are available so you don't have to miss a thing (unless you want to!). Curl up with a good book or your computer in the special reading area by the picture window.

The cozy rear garden apartment is ideal for a couple, and has a lovely outdoor deck area with table and chairs, or you can lounge in the villa's Beachfront palm garden. Your well equipped kitchen has granite counters and all the modern conveniences on a smaller scale. The comfortable King bed can also be converted into two twin beds, and there is air conditioning for your sleeping pleasure. Satellite TV with all the channels, a DVD player, and WiFi will help keep you busy if you can stay awake after a day of fun in the sun!

24 hour Security is on the grounds, a full time landscaper and twice weekly Housekeeping is also included, as is purified water.

Provisions can be gotten down the street at the local Deli at West Bay Mall (not really a 'Mall'!), and there is good local food, a popular coffee shop, and an intimate Sushi bar. Many other dining options are steps away, and many great dive shops (we love Bananarama) are located nearby. Don't miss the weekly visits of the man selling local fresh seafood when he comes to St. Mac's! The villa is located right next door to Infinity Bay Condominiums, with it's popular Sports Bar, pool, and restaurant. Taxi boats ($5 each way) can take you from the dock right in front of the villa to funky West End with its happening restaurants and night life, and regular taxis are readily available to drive you back home. Enjoy World Class snorkeling and diving just steps down the beach!

St. Mac's is the Oceanfront part of West Bay Village, a small private enclave of Caribbean style homes that have retained their Caribbean character in a Concrete CondoWorld. If you are looking for charm and True Beachfront, Look No Further!

We are happy to arrange for our driver, Marty, to meet your flight at RTB airport, then bring you to St Mac's. He will stop at our local well stocked grocery store along the way for provisions for your cooking pleasure. Marty charges $25 (up to 4 people; $40 for more than 4), and you pay him directly. He can also help with any other transport needs you may have during your stay.

Refund policy: for cancellation 90+ days before arrival, full deposit refund. 50% of your deposit is refundable upon cancellation within 60-89 days or more of your arrival. If you cancel in 59 days or less, your deposit is non refundable. All non refundable deposits may be used towards another St Mac's booking within 6 months of cancellation, based on availability.

St. Mac's Beachfront Villa is owned by two diving couples who have a longtime love affair with Roatan, and West Bay Beach. We are lucky enough to live in Lake Tahoe in the summer, and Roatan is Home as often as we can make it down here. St. Mac's is a great place for family gatherings! Nothing says relaxation like a good book, the sound of waves in the background, a dip in the warm waters of the Caribbean, and a beautiful sunset....

Sachiko St. Jeor purchased this apartment in 1999

We started coming to Roatan 25 years ago, back in the Wild West days before there were real roads out to West Bay (and condos). An ongoing love affair started with West Bay Beach (back then it was all called West End), and St. Mac's was always the best house on the best beach--a true traditional Caribbean style charmer. Time has passed, and we are thrilled to be co-owners with another couple who feel the same way we do! We've been all over the world searching for the perfect white sand beach with world class diving and snorkeling, and crystal clear warm water....it is here at West Bay Beach and St Mac's. Despite West Bay's growth and new concrete condo construction, St. Mac's is STILL the best house on the best beach, just with more dining options!

Why be 'steps to the ocean' or a '7 minute walk' to West Bay Beach? Be True Beachfront, right on the sand! This is the charming yellow house many people stop to take pictures of while walking down the beach. 24 hour Security Guards on site, plenty of parking, and a private Beachfront garden with swaying palms, lounge chairs, hammocks, and beautiful sunsets provided!

Touch of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I had traveled to Roatan 6 years ago but this was my husband's first trip to this amazing island. We both wanted convenience but since it was just the 2 of us we did not want to pay extra money for an additional bedroom. Staying at St. Mac's was one of the best decisions we made for our trip. The location is the best in the West Bay area. Your view is the gorgeous sand and water, plus it is walking distance to restaurants and the water taxis but still offers privacy. You even have your own private beach area to lounge in. If snorkeling is your interest, one of the island's best reefs is only footsteps away from the apartment. Though it is a 1 bedroom, the apartment is spacious and the kitchen is updated which saved us a lot of money during our trip as we usually cooked our breakfast and lunch in the apartment allowing us to spend our money on some of the delicious dinners at some of the restaurants down the beach. However, if you want a different area to choose from for dinner you can take a 5 minute water taxi to West End for more shopping and dining. We will definitely stay at St. Mac's the next time we travel to Roatan.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to welcome you both to our piece of paradise! We appreciate your taking the time to write such a lovely and comprehensive review of St Mac's. Our private beachfront garden is the perfect place to relax and watch the waves and boats come in, and to have a picnic lunch or cool drink. Come again soon!

Nebraskans Love St Macs!

  • 5 of 5
Spending 7 days a few feet from the sand and ocean was wonderful! I normally love to sleep in on vacation but was up at sunrise to drink coffee on the deck with my friends and watch the beach workers and strollers begin their day. I invited 18 of my friends to spend the week after falling in love with Roatan 5 yrs ago. 14 adults and teens occupied the entire St Mac house plus the lower level of Satori Beach house right behind us. Another family of 4/friends rented a house next door. The location is perfect, with restaurants a few minutes walk down the beach, delis and coffee shops to walk to, and water taxis to West End village for more food and shopping. The teen-agers were free to stroll the beach on a whim and we all snorkeled multiple times. (Go in groups for safety, as there are no life guards!). We golfed, zip lined, swam w dolphins, paddle boarded, para-sailed, and sailed on the Stray Cat Catamaran. Our wonderful driver Marty came on a moments notice to drive us if needed, and we scheduled an island tour with him and saw the Iguana Farm and went on a Man Grove boat tour! We visited some villages and he told us all about the island, where he was born and is raising his family. His wife cooked 2 meals for us at the house, which was wonderful! We also enjoyed wonderful food at several restaurants and our kids sang Karaoke at the Thirsty Turtle. We enjoyed a few evenings of music from next door while relaxing on our deck. Many people in our group have been to the Honduran mainland several times for mission trips and our hearts go out to these people who work so hard to make a living with such limited opportunities. Going to Roatan is such a win-win situation because we are able to help support their economy while having a blast! The St. Mac house upper and lower units and the brand new Satori Beach house are in an ideal location. The accomodations are wonderful and the owner, Kasey, is so helpful and prompt in aswering questions. I hope to return soon and will definately recommend this my friends!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! Your group definitely took advantage of all the activities Roatan has to offer. It was a pleasure corresponding with you, and getting all the details worked out. St Mac's does have the prime beachfront location on West Bay Beach, and is wonderful for large groups. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future, and Happy Summer!

  • 5 of 5
This is our third stay at St. Mac's in a year's time. We love Roatan, and we love staying at this apartment. It is so nice for me to be able to snorkel right off the beach anytime I like, and for my husband to be able to float and wade in the water with a sand bottom and relax on a lounge chair in between. In the afternoon, when it gets hot, we can recline on the sofa and either watch TV or watch the ocean and the beach activity. The property is right next to the water taxi and activity pier, so you can take water excursions or catch a water taxi to West End anytime you like during daylight hours. Everything that you really need is within walking distance, so you do not need to rent a car or even hire a taxi unless you want to. This includes dining out, or cooking in, since you have a full, well-stocked kitchen. Some of our favorite places to eat are Bananarama, especially for the pizza, and Beachers. Even though it is located on a busy beach, it is like a little oasis with full time security guards to keep vendors and those who do not belong here out. Kasey, the owner, and Brad, Ruth and Sam, the property managers, are all really nice and easy to work with. In my opinion, this is the place to stay when visiting Roatan West Bay.

St. Mac's -- the most relaxing vacation you can have

St. Mac's -- the most relaxing vacation you can have
  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful week. The weather was fantastic. I made 8 great dives and the snorkeling on the reef down the beach is a real pleasure. The unit met all our expectations and the view of the ocean is spectacular. The place was clean and the maid came twice during our stay. Brad answered all my questions about where to eat etc. My wife is picky and she was very happy and is ready to go back.

You can sit under the palms in front of the house, on the beach or watch the ocean from inside the house laying on the couch. Many good restaurants right down the beach -- our favorites were Beachers and Fosters. I didn't wear shoes for 3 days -- didn't need them. If you want to get away from the world, enjoy some fantastic diving and totally relax -- this is the place.

St. Mac's - A Great Snorkeling Vacation

St. Mac's - A Great Snorkeling Vacation
  • 4 of 5
We stayed in Beachfront LL. Was exactly like photos, description, and reviews. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners our 2nd week. They were staying in the Bungalow preparing a new property directly behind St. Mac's for availability in 2013. Asked us several times if there was anything we needed which we didn't. Well furnished kitchen, comfy bed & furniture and the view? Well it was spectacular and to be able to walk out our door and wthin a few steps be in the ocean. We went primarily for the snorkeling which is by far the best we have experienced. The diving operations appeared to be excellent. The 24 hr. security provided was reassuring. All lodging & restaurants have security. The power did go out several times but seems to be a norm and not that inconvenient. If you need phone access, you might check into getting a temporary one upon arrival. Much cheaper. WiFI was a plus. Several restaurants just minutes away on the beach. We found Beachers had excellent lobster and sea bass. It was our first time to Roatan and will forever be a memorable one. Thanks Kasey, Rico and Sam.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at St. Mac's for two weeks. The location can't be beat. It's in the middle of West Bay with a quick $3 water taxi ride over to West End. It is literally the only house you can rent that's on the beach. The view and sound of the ocean are great. It rained most of the time we were there and without the view and sound of the water our trip would have been completely different. If you are looking for 5 star accommodations I would suggest staying next door at Infinity Bay. They have beautiful condos - granite, stainless steel appliances, etc., but you will be set back from the beach. If you are looking for a great location that's a little more rustic this is the spot. We would definately stay here again and recommend it.
