'We really enjoyed our trip to Roatan and specifically to your home....the beds were some of the most comfortable I have ever slept on. We thoroughly enjoyed the beach area right down the hill. We loved to go kayaking and we had great snorkeling from there. We saw the most beautiful red starfish while we were there.

About Adrienne Larkin
We are a professional couple living in the San Francisco Bay Area. We created La Diosa as a special place of beauty, fun, and relaxation. Even after staying at La Diosa so many times, it is still so fantastic to be there. We know you will feel that way too!
Adrienne Larkin purchased this villa in 2003
Why Adrienne Larkin chose Roatan
After traveling throughout the Caribbean, we came upon Roatan and fell in love with it - its natural beauty, its people, the wonderful 'something special' about it.... We looked at many houses and places until we came upon this amazing 4 acre property. The breezes were wonderful even on a hot day, the views went on forever, and even though it had been a bit neglected we could see ourselves building a special place there, among the trees, honoring the earth, a place of peace and serenity.
But fun too!
What makes this villa unique
When I come to La Diosa, it is as if time just melts away. I get up with the sun and kayak in the early morning, take a swim, saying hello to the fish around the reef -- then come back to the gardens, lounge around the pool, read, write in the tower, snooze in the hammock, go horseback riding, explore, whip up a meal in our huge kitchen or just take a walk among the trees. What could be better? What a blessing!
Guestbook comments from the owner
This is my second stay at La Diosa and it was just as beautiful as the first time. I went the first time with my husband and it was a relaxing and romantic getaway. The views are spectacular and you feel immersed in the sights and sounds of the tropical forest. What really surprised us was how chic and comfortable the design and furnishings of the house are. We are in the fashion business and travel extensively for both leisure and business and the house is very unique for the Caribbean in being so comfortable, elegant and whimsical. We were instantly transported into our own paradise. The staff was attentive but unobtrusive which is exactly what we were looking for. The house is very spacious and open and made us think it would be a great place for a party. We had been raving about our experience to some of our friends and we all decided to go together. When we
arrived the staff remembered us and gave us a warm welcome. Although there is a lot to do on the island, we ended up spending most of our time at the house, swimming and kayaking and cooking in the beautiful kitchen. The time just flew by - La Diosa is a wonderful place to get away from it all. We will definitely be back.
