We are orignally from the Florida Keys Diving the reefs of Fla,. In earlier years it was unsurpassed. Then we discovered Roatan on a vacation. We came to fish and dive but decided to retire here.

John Hobson purchased this apartment in 2005

The beach front is beautiful,. Sunsets a different one every night .Being able to swim to the reef without a boat keeps you in shape.

No stress ,peace and quiet with the ecological natural beauty of the area.

If your seeking to escape the crowds of tourism at high end resorts our area is quiet and undiscovered but close to high end tourism areas

LIFE TAKES A DIFFERENT FLOW IN HOBBY’S HIDEAWAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
Dear John and Sue! We can’t thank you enough for our wonderful experience at Hobbie’s Hideaway! It is a real gem. With the property located right on the beautiful beach, and the dock where you can relax in hammocks and then take a dip amazing Caribbean water that washes away all the stress and tiredness of big city. Reefs are so close and underwater life is breathtaking. Not mentioning gorgeous sunsets and fishing experience.
We stayed in one bedroom apartment that had everything that was needed for comfortable living including cooking utensils, refrigerator, hot water, comfy bed, towels, A/C and Wi-Fi. Finding a heavy stainless steel sauté pan was heaven on earth for making my island inspired (cumin, coriander, habanero pepper) chicken curry. We would usually cook and then have our meal on the verandah, with all wooden chairs and tables and calming view of the Caribbean sea. The design of the whole place reflects the host's warm and caring personality. 'Screw the cracker, Polly wants a cocktail' is still fresh in our jokes repertoire. The highlight of it all was catching a nice Yellow Tail Grunt 1 footer right from the dock at night on my light and long Tenkara rod. The fish gave me some nice fight!
Property location is close enough to shopping, however secluded, private, and quiet.
John and Sue are amazing people and are super accommodating. John picked us up from the airport and stopped by the market so we can buy groceries and produce. He also took us back to the airport when we were leaving.
John would take us on boat trips, showing us most beautiful underwater locations. We would like to also thank Ronald, John’s very important addition to the team, who would accommodate us with whatever we needed and give us very good tips on what bait to use for fishing and other things.
To give heads up to the future guests: bring bug spray with you to protect yourself from sand fleas and mosquitoes. Better yet, bring light long sleeve and pants to prevent bites. However John has some homemade island crème that will alleviate itching once you got bitten.
We had unforgettable experience kayaking to mangroves, fishing, taking naps in hammocks. The life just takes a different flow in Hobbie’s Hideaway: fun, quiet, relaxing, romantic. Again we want to thank our wonderful hosts John and Sue for everything that they've shared with us.
We definitely recommend this place for everyone.

TERRIFIC PLACE & WONDERFUL HOSTS

Terrific place &amp; wonderful hosts
  • 5 of 5
I have been using VRBO for awhile now to find cozy, authentic accomodations in Roatan. I chose Hobbie's Hideaway in Sandy Bay for my 3rd trip to the island because of it's proximity to the reef. My friend and I both 65+ could not have been happier with the choice. Our hosts, John & Sue and all the other wonderful guests we met made our month in Roatan feel like our 2nd home. Our 1 bedroom with twin beds, full kitchen and adjoining living roonm were perfect for the 2 of us. The TV, WIFI & water pressure were great....this is not always true in Roatan!! Everything we needed to cook our own meals was provided or quickly obtained from our hosts. Providing transportation to and from the airport, to the grocery store, bottled water, and extras like coffee & filters, toilet paper, soap, dish detergent, etc were a BIG plus. Evening gatherings on the porch and especially Sunday BBQ's (cooked by locals and/or John) added to the "at home" atmosphere. A short walk up to the main road made the trip into Coxen Hole & West End very easy and affortable. I would certainly recommend Hobbie's Hideaway to anyone looking for an affortable, peaceful retreat in Roatan. Hope to return next year,

A PARADISE I CALL HOME

  • 5 of 5
Paradise: a place of extreme beauty, delight, or happiness. I would say that’s a perfect fit for Hobbies Hideaway. It is a beautiful place, with gorgeous sunsets and ocean front view. The owners John and Sue did everything to make our stay a delight. We had everything we needed along with their knowledge of the island and people, their wonderful personalities and kind hearts. We had so much fun with them, and laughter we'll never forget. The island people were happy and inviting as well. Hobbies was a perfect location for us. It was quiet and away from the crowds of downtown. When we wanted to go though, it was only a short distance away. It was so relaxing to sit out front with a beer in the warm ocean breezes or lay in a hammock on the dock and watch the passing boats. We couldn’t have been happier.
Home: an area in which a person feels they belong, a state of comfort. We have traveled allot and have never felt at home until now. We spent almost a month at Hobbies and not once felt uncomfortable. John and Sue welcomed us in like family. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. We had everything we needed. We found a place we belong. The popular saying, “ Home is where the heart is”, well that’s just it. A piece of our hearts are in Roatan at Hobbies Hideaway and we will go back. Hope to see you there!

HOME AWAY FROME HOME!!

  • 5 of 5
First of all the people of Roatan are great and friendly people. John and Sue are the greatest hosts. If we needed anything we just asked and wal-la it showed up!! We had everything we needed. The room was large and clean. We had everything we needed to cook and keep the place tidy. The location is great---quite, picturesque, and homey. The number of rooms are limited so I won't go on and on for fear that there won't be room for me the next time. WE SHALL RETURN!!!!
