2012 & 2013 Award for 'Top Vacation Rental' and 'Recommended Rental'!

Set on a hillside with breathtaking views of the island and the Caribbean Sea, La Diosa del Sol is a luxuy four-bedroom villa on Roatan's North Shore. With its own private beach, close to everything but a world away, La Diosa is a place of beauty, privacy, and relaxation. La Diosa is perfect both for couples seeking a romantic getaway and for families and groups looking for a special place to relax and reconnect.

The Villa has a large infinity pool. ocean kayaks, and 160 feet of private beachfront. Swim and snorkel off La Diosa's private dock or go on an adventure with Subway WaterSports, which will pick you up to dive or snorkel in all the best places on the uncrowded North Shore reef.

La Diosa's beautifully appointed rooms open out to large covered porches with panoramic views of the the reef and the surrounding tropical forest.

The master suites have private patios, ensuite baths, along with views of the Caribbean. La Diosa also has two guest bedrooms, a writers' tower and two screened sleeping porches.

In La Diosa's main house, the Great Room with its soaring cathedral ceiling opens out to the covered porches and to the bridge to the gardens. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen has a large island of slate and Honduran rosewood, an eating bar, two dining areas, and spectacular views of the Caribbean. The game room has a lounging area and a bar.

The three-story villa is surrounded by four acres of private grounds with paths through gardens and tropical trees.

We also have a caretaker on the property 24 hours per day. And while the villa is secluded and private, restaurants, shopping, and Roatan's many attractions are not far away. Our guests find the location perfect to explore Roatan's many attractions.

We designed La Diosa to be a 'green' home suitable for asthmatic and environmentally sensitive people, with tile and concrete construction, solar hot water, a salt water swimming pool, and non-toxic, sophisticated energy-efficient construction.

La Diosa is a truly magical place....we are sure you will love it as much as we do!

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.

Amazing Time at La Diosa

  • 5 of 5
My wife, sisters and I came to Roatan for a relaxing visit for the second time in two years. This was our 3rd trip (overall) to Roatan and we have stayed in different villas each time.

The home is gorgeous and in a very quiet, serene area. The grounds are immense and lovely with so many different beautiful flowers and plants. The views - oh, the views! We loved relaxing in the saltwater infinity pool while gazing at the ocean.

The service provided by the staff was superb! Liz was very helpful in answering all of our questions before and during our visit and in getting us squared away throughout the journey. Effraim is excellent at taking care of things on the property and helped us out whenever we had questions or requests. We would definitely recommend having Rosa cook for you during your stay. She is a great cook and has a very sparkling personality. We greatly enjoyed our conversations with her and thank her for telling us the secret to making coconut chicken! The meals we shared out on the terrace cooked by Rosa were one of the many highlights of our trip. We also had an enjoyable and informative personalized tour given by George, Rosa's husband. We would definitely recommend this for others staying at the villa.

Lucky and Hope, the Katrina rescue dogs were so fun and sweet. My sisters wanted to "dognap" them both and bring them back to New Orleans with them!

We were happy with every aspect of LaDiosa. It was wonderful! When we plan our next trip we are already planning to stay at LaDiosa.

Swimming, kayaking, snorkeling and sunbathing without the crowds

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at La Diosa. The Villa has everything, so you never need to leave except to stock up on food and beverages. The fully-equipped kitchen made meal preparation easy, and the decor of the kitchen and living area is beautiful and great for entertaining. We loved the pool, reading in the pool lounge area, and watching the lovely sunsets every day. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the open air to go indoors and sleep at night; even the master shower on the second floor bathes you in air and sky. If you love swimming, kayaking and snorkeling, rent this Villa. You won't need to go anywhere else.

Had to Come Back - for a Second Fantastic Vacation at this Awesome Property / Location

  • 5 of 5
This is the 2nd time in two years that my family has come to Roatan and stayed at La Diosa. As with our first stay, everything was first class. From the moment we arrived at the airport greeted by Jami (the property manager), to arriving at the house to meet the new care taker and finding the starter food items in the fridge and the pantry, to the wonderful quiet ad relaxed days during our stay (despite a few issues with the power going off on the island), and finishing off with the sad departure good byes on our last day. You could not ask for a better home, a better property manager, a better care taker, or better owners/hosts. The new stairs down to the dock were great. Kayaking off of the private pier was awesome, as was the private snorkeling we did. Access to great restaurants (thanks to the guidance from Jami). If you are coming here be prepared to enjoy a relaxing - comfortable and quiet stay. Do plan to rent a vehicle unless your plan is to stay at the house the entire time - as it will be needed to get around to the different sites around the island. Even the furthest points on the island within a short drive. This is one of our favorite spots to vacation by far.

Wonderful family vacation at La Diosa!

  • 5 of 5
La Diosa is sprawling, airy, and spectacular with gorgeous views! Lots of room for our family of 8 incl. 3 little ones. We loved the multiple levels & decks, beautiful decor, cleanliness & the infinity pool was a daily/nightly ritual. The home is in a remote part of the island -exactly what we wanted -away from the cruisers and resorts. It was recommended that we rent a 4WD, and they were right. You need it at least for clearance on the very bumpy roads. Jami and Ed, the house managers, were super nice, knowledgable, and always responsive. Jami met us at the airport, took us grocery shopping when we first got there and gave us Roatan insider tips. We had an issue with the air conditioning in one of the bedrooms and they had an AC guy out there promptly to fix it. Efraim, the caretaker, was on-site and took care of the pool and grounds. We invited Efraim to have dinner with us one night and enjoyed talking about the culture in Roatan. I had read many reviews about bugs, but we didn't really encounter too many. The "no see ums" got a few of us, but they didn't bother us too much and didn't itch. We did put "OFF" on occasionally, but no big deal. Our favorite things (in no particular order): 1.) Temporary Cal's Cantina - truly the best food we had on the island! It was close to the house and has gorgeous views. The food was incredible and inexpensive. Hint: They are only open 3-4 days during the week, so get there early as it fills up quick. We actually went two days in a row we were so impressed. 2.) Little French Key. We went twice! A tiny private island that's fun for the entire family and tranquil and too. They have a 2-level bar that you can jump off the top deck into the water...the teens especially loved this and even my five year old jumped! The water is zero entry on the beaches so great for kids. Hint: go early & don't go on cruise day! 3.) La Sirena. A quaint little restaurant off the beaten path that sits on a pier...lots of shells and shallow water for the little ones to explore while we sipped our drinks. 4.) Paya Bay- we visited Bliss Beach, and walked a narrow path to the end of the rocky cliff that overlooked the sea. Unreal. 5.) Ruthless Charters. 6 of us went fishing. Fun & friendly captain, first mate, and crewmate. We caught tuna, and had the freshest sushi ever, right there on the boat! Other Hints: Joshua at Roatan Best Car is true to his word. La Diosa was perfect for us! We will definitely be returning!

Wonderful TRip

  • 5 of 5
From the beginning was a definite plus. Owners were extremely good about communicating about what we should expect. Staff was the best. Even the "guard dogs" were wonderful. Loved the outside shower, we took several showers a day!! The view was breath taking from all over the house-really miss it since we are home. Best place in the world to enjoy your morning coffee.
Islanders were friendly and helpful-but again I cannot say enough about the staff and the beautiful home. Looking forward to a return visit-this needs to be shared.

More beautiful than expected!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 adults spent a wonderful week at La Diosa del Sol. The villa had everything we needed for a fun, relaxing vacation. The property manager, Jami and on site caretaker, Efrain were knowledgeable, kind and helpful. We reviewed many rental properties on VBRO before choosing La Diosa. This villa is even better than what is shown on the web site.
