Why Owner: Otto & Iso Malzer / Manager on site: Tony & Zilla van Gerven chose Roatan
Spending a vacation at Anthony's Key Resort we were fascinated by the beauty of the island and the friendlyness of the people and started to look for a place to build a house. What we found had more than we expected. A white beach with a spectacular reef just in front, mature coconut trees and other tropical fruit, flowers and a small creek. It even provided a safe area to build the house about 20 feet above sea level.
What makes this house unique
Not far from town and airport but away from the tourist crowd, still close enough to get to all the restaurants and bars by taxi in about 10 minutes.
