It has ample room , a covered seating area where you can enjoy many hours of relaxing with a book, visiting friends, or enjoying the breathtaking sunsets.

Otto is a geologist now retired and Iso, a physiotherapist, runs 2 clinics in Vienna/ Austria .The 2 children,daughter a doctor for rehabilitation and son administration manger lead the clinics now to give their mother more time to spend on Roatan.

Owner/Manager Owner: Otto & Iso Malzer Manager on site: Kevin Stratton purchased this house in 1994

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.

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.

Snorkeling and diving from the private dock,harvesting mangos from the large deck, swinging in the hammock on the large deck or above the waves on the dock.

A lovely beachfront house on a great island

Malzer House is a lovely, spacious and comfortable house with beautiful gardens that are very well maintained. We loved the huge deck under the mango tree, and the dock from which we swam and watched the sunsets and the stars at night. We could snorkel off the dock to the reef which was fantastic. We also went snorkeling at several other sites on the island . The water was very clear and we saw lovely coral and lots of colourful fish - we also saw turtles, eagle rays and a nurse shark. The location is the house is excellent - on a quiet part of the beach, but only ten minutes drive from both West End and the supermarkets in Coxen Hole. There are also several good restaurants within a five minute drive. The manager, Kevin, was very friendly and helpful, as were Tina and Elmer, who looked after the house and gardens. The owners, a lovely couple, also provided us with helpful information before and during our stay, and it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to meet them while we were there. All in all we had a wonderful holiday, though far too short! - we can thoroughly recommend Roatan and the Malzer House and hope to be able to return there one day .

Enchanted Getaway

A month at the Malzer house was not enough. We loved the quiet retreat with the water only steps away. Tina is a sweetheart and quietly takes care of the house. We wished we had known the depth of her cooking abilities from the start. She now has a notebook of the meals she can cook for the guests. Be sure you try a dinner of her coconut shrimp or perhaps her homemade tortillas and refried beans. We also recommend next-door-neighbor Tex of Roatan Flyfishing if you want to fish the flats. His rate for a 4 or 5-hour trip is compararble to other charter fishing trips - which in Roatan doesn't mean inexpensive. The dock was our favorite place. It is a private dock, but in Honduras that doesn't mean totally private. We sometimes shared the dock with others who tied up there or a few of the neighbors who also have a key to the gate. That wasn't a problem at all, but at least you won't be left wondering "who are these people?". Snorkeling off the dock was so much fun. Don't miss all the starfish off the dock to the east. The bars and restaurants mentioned as being along the beach are no longer there. Anthony's Key is also fenced and no longer accessible along the beach. Iso and Otto were very responsive to our emails and Kevin, the property manager, dropped by often to see that all was well. Sandy Bay makes for a very secluded and quiet vacation. We hope to return and take others with us to the best vacation place ever.

First trip to Roatan

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 31, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at the Malzer house with just a few exceptions. Most importantly were the King bed mattresses that are poor quality and not a single full king mattress. There are two "twin size" mattresses in each king bed frame. Not so cool for a couple.

Also, it would be nice to remove a few trees to enhance the ocean view. It's too bad to block such a nice view with just too many trees.

The dock was great ... enjoyed snorkeling right at the end of the dock.

The staff were very nice and Tina was great ... she cooked dinner for us one evening.

Anyone coming to the Malzer house for the first time better use Kevin to lead the way. There is no way to find the little dirt driveway unless you have been there before.
Owner's Response: The twin beds have their mattress frame only on 3 sides- nothing in the middle so the mattresses meet without a gap. The beds are firmely connected with a strong system. We will be in our house in 2 weeks and will check the system may be it needs to be renewed. The advantage over one kingsize mattress is that both partners can sleep undisturbed.
It is peacefull and pretty to watch the palm branches glitter and sway in the breeze, enjoy the shade of the Mango tree on the large porch, for most of our guests. The trees are also the best protection in bad weather which sometimes strikes. Twice a year the lower leaves of the Coconut trees are cut away to allow some view of the ocean. Unlimited view and the salty smell of the sea gives you your time on the dock right infront of the house.

Best Accommodation Ever

My husband and my two adult children enjoyed nine days at this beautiful home in early December 2012. It was everything that it promised to be. We loved the house - it was comfortable and spacious. Each of the children had their own space - There were 2 large bedrooms with bathrooms attached and a loft area where my son slept. He had his own bathroom on the main floor. I can't tell you what a luxury it is to have a bathroom for each of your adult children! The kitchen was well equipped and we did most of our cooking there. We ventured out for several scuba diving adventures but were so comfortable and happy here that we were eager always to return. We snorkelled right off the dock - the reef and the famous "Spooky Channel" are right in front of the property. There is a long dock that goes right out into the Caribbean and we watched the sunsets from its balcony. The garden was beautiful, with birds and humming birds and there are four visiting cats that kept us company. We enjoyed relaxing on the generous verandah amidst mango and palm trees in the hammocks. Security was provided at nighttime and Tina, our hostess kept the house ship shape. She also treated us to a magnificent loaf of coconut bread. The only challenges were the confused roosters who woke us sometimes at 2:30 in the morning. We got used to it, but the first few nights found ear plugs helpful! Any questions or problems we had were dealt with promptly. Transportation was no problem, as buses go by just up the road every five minutes or so. And they are inexpensive - about 70 cents per person. Negotiate taxi fees before you climb in - they are usually about $1.50 per person depending on where you are headed. We bought our groceries in Coxen Hole right after we landed and enjoyed having our meals on the verandah. There is an excellent clinic at the Bahia Resort just down the road (a short bus trip) with an excellent doctor who dealt with a couple of medical concerns. We can't wait to go back!

This house is the perfect place to spend your vacation and see Roatan from a local perspective. The caretakers and workers on the property go above and beyone to make sure your stay is enjoyable. The house is in clean condition and great for a family or group of friends.

The best part is the dock that goes into the ocean. The view of the sunset is exactly what you imagine a vacation to be and the coral reef is rigth there to snorkle to.
