* NOTE - our prices are shown in Canadian Dollars. Our rate is based on $USD 85.00 per night, $USD 500.00 per week, $USD 1500.00 per month. *
* NOTE - our other suite, Casa Canuck Suite B, has two additional windows overlooking the forest, and a larger covered deck. *
Casa Canuck has an amazing combination of proximity, seclusion and complimentary conveniences that other rentals just don't have! Located in West End, on the water at Mangrove Bight, you have only a short walk to the lively center of West End, or to some of the best snorkeling in the world at Half Moon Bay. At home, you can unwind in the quiet and peaceful setting of a tropical oasis, watching the hummingbirds, butterflies, geckos, and other wildlife.
You will be able to relax in your suite or on your private deck overlooking the mangroves and jungle greenery. You can also enjoy direct water access or an evening under the stars on Mangrove Bight from our private dock, and even arrange to be picked up right from the dock for many water activities.
A one-minute walk gets you onto the newly paved West End road where you can find the many dive shops, fishing charters, dining options, shops and nightlife that unique West End offers. We are also ideally located for people looking for accomodations while completing dive courses. When you are checking out dive shops, we highly recommend ScubaRoatan. Rino and Amanda are good people, they run a good operation, and are less than a block away.
We live upstairs full-time, so we are close by if you need anything, but we fully respect our guests' privacy. We are regular friendly people and would also enjoy sharing a visit and a beverage on the dock if you like!
During our time living here, we have learned about good restaurants, things to do, places to go and people that can help you with your Roatan vacation 'bucket list'. Let us know what you are interested in, and we will do our best to get you in contact with the right people.
Each of our two suites has a queen bed, full bath, private east-side deck, shared west-side deck, ceiling fans, cable TV, internet, 2-burner cooktop, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, dishes, water dispenser and drinking water, writing desk, bistro table and chairs and AC. There is a nice hammock and two adirondack chairs on your private deck, and night security on the property.
Our guests' comfort and relaxation is our main priority! We want your stay to be restful and easy, so we have thought of the little conveniences for you. Coffee? Salt and Pepper? Cold beverages in the fridge when you arrive? We thought of that! Flashlight? Umbrellas? Clothesline? We thought of that, too. Liquid Tide for hand washables? Hangers? Laundry basket? You bet. Scissors? Baggies? Can opener? Yes, even those! Wine glasses? Corkscrew? Candles? Definitely. There is an extra rod in the shower for hanging bathing suits, etc, free snorkel gear for you to borrow, free access to kayaks, and a local cell phone for you to use while you are here. Personal laundry can be arranged for $8 per load. 'Yes, we thought of that!' And if we didn't, please let us know!
AIRPORT / FERRY PICKUP: Let us know your arrival details and we will be at the airport or ferry to pick you up. We include a cold beer or soda or water (let us know your preference), a stop at the supermarket if you wish, and a comfortable short ride to Casa Canuck. Pickup and return is FREE for all of our guests.
We have a generator and live on-site, so you will still have a working water system and fridge (once we start the generator) if the power goes out.
We also have an additional single mattress for a third guest for an additional $25 per night.
Please, no smoking in or near the building. We love animals, but guests must not bring pets. We love children, too, but our suites are not suitable for youngsters. And if you enjoy other music besides the birds, the breeze, the boats and the seas, we ask that you keep your volume low. (Unless it is Salsa music, in which case you just need to invite us to the party!)
We are from Northern Alberta, Canada and have four sons from age 19 to 27. Joan is a teacher, and Stan is 'Stan the Duct Man' - our HVAC and plumbing company in Northern Alberta.
Joan Cooke and Stan Wall purchased this studio in 2012
In April of 2011, we came to Roatan for a single day during a cruise. There was just something about this beautiful little island that drew us back, and in April of 2012 we came for a week vacation, looked at a few places with a realtor 'just for fun', and somehow ended up owning this fantastic house in this amazing location. We moved here to our main house to stay in July of 2013, and will continue renting our studios.
The two best feature of our studios are the location and our free amenities! We are a very short walk from the best diving and snorkeling in the world, minutes from famous West End, but in a very quiet and private corner of the neighborhood. We have a mangrove and a dock on the east side of our yard, jungle to the south, a banana-filled yard to the west, and wonderful neighbors to the north. And 'We thought of that!' is how we describe our free extras.
After a long & tiring trip (Plane delay), we started our journey with a friendly & smiling face at the airport--Joan greeting us . She took us to the local grocery store where she assisted us with not only our food but with the local exchange rate. Arriving at Casa Canuck was a delightful surprise---the studio far exceeded our expectations...size & private deck with cooling sea breezes. The purpose of our visit was not only to vacation but to search for housing for a potential move to Roatan. Joan went above & beyond not only to ensure a great stay but assisting us in our quest for housing. She introduced us to her friends and local business owners. The booklet she provides in the unit provided us with great places to eat & visit (Monkey Island restaurant, Gumbalimba Park, rum cake factory & snorkeling locations). Most restaurants, beach & snorkeling were within a five minute walk from our room. Everyone we met was very friendly & willing to assist in anything we needed. Joan played a major role in not only making our stay memorable but making us feel like family. We highly recommend staying at Casa Canuck not only to enjoy the great scenery, the beach & stars at night from the private dock but to feel like home away from home. We look forward to returning very soon.
We are two females in our 30's and love central America but this was our first trip to Honduras. We were greeted by Stan at the airport who was so great and friendly! He took us to the grocery store and we were able to get coffee, cream, sugar, cereal, milk, sandwich meat, bread etc. we then get to Casa Canuck and it was better than we expected! Joan then came down and introduced herself and was an absolute doll! They have a book in the room that Joan has created giving reviews on anything and everything on the island. It was very helpful and we were able to pretty much try every single thing recommended in the book! We were able to do quite a bit of sightseeing including Little French Key, Gumbalimba Park, and West Bay beach. We highly recommend all three locations! They were amazing. Make sure you book Little French Key when there is only one cruise ship at port so it won't be crowded! Overall this was one of our best vacations! Joan and Stan were fabulous and the apartment is fantastic! Joan literally has thought of everything you could possibly need! I tried to challenge her and find something that she didn't have and I was unsuccessful! The walk into town is about two minutes or less. It was perfect! We don't have one negative thing to say about Casa Canuck or Roatan! It was seriously amazing and we would return! And when we do return we will book with Joan and Stan no doubt!!
i have been to casa canuck with a friend and totally fall in love with the place.. very clean and equipped with everything you need. private deck to relax. close to everything and quiet area.
Joan and Stan are the best host ever..very very helpful. they intruced us to many person and place they know on the island. they are always ready to help if you need something.

My boyfriend and I recently spent a week diving and enjoying life in Roatan. As soon as we arrived at Casa Canuck, we knew this would be the perfect place to spend the next 7 days. The room is modest, very clean and equipped with everything you need (towels, hammock, snorkel gear, kitchenette, internet, guest cell phone, TV, fans, AC, etc.). The location is perfect, just a few minutes away from EVERYTHING, yet far enough to enjoy a quiet nap after a busy vacation day! The private dock is also great for breakfast, nap and afternoon Salva Vida :)
Stan and Joan are fantastic hosts, they literally thought of everything. And if they didn't... they're always available a few steps away to help you. We stopped by the grocery store on our way back from the airport (Joan is an excellent "grocery caddie"!). Throughout the week, they introduced us to some of their friends, toured the island with us for some great baleadas, rum cake and chocolate tasting. We even ended up celebrating Christmas with them and the other guests!
We had an amazing time in Roatan and Joan and Stan certainly played a big role and made our week memorable! We definitely recommend staying with them and we will certainly go back ourselves!!
We had a great time in Roatan. I was traveling with my wife and we spent 3 days diving and enjoying everything Roatan has to offer. The rental is in a great location which is super close to beaches, excellent snorkeling and dive shops, restaurants, EVERYTHING. Stan and Joan are amazing hosts and go out of their way to ensure your stay is easy and comfortable. I would 100% recommend staying here.
Joan and Stan are amazing hosts. By being introduced to local residents, we experienced much more than just a tourist, including excellent inexpensive meals and tours. All amenities are available within a five-minute walk from the suites, including snorkelling, swimming, taxis, water taxis, shopping, and meals. For more sightseeing, it is simple to rent a taxi, water taxi, or scooter.
We recommend staying here!
