La Casa Gaviota Azul
This recently refurbished island paradise is nestled within the award-winning seaside village designed by Steven and Kathy House. Parrot Tree Plantation is a private, gated community providing the traveler safety and seclusion just a short drive from the international airport, shopping, and Pete Dye designed Black Pearl golf course. Roatán is a smaller, developing island (37 mi/60 km long) off the coast of mainland Honduras long-known for its incredible scuba diving. The English-speaking community has cultivated a thriving tourism industry with weekly visits by cruise ships. Local attractions include dolphin encounters, horseback riding, canopy zipline tours, butterfly farm, botanical gardens, fishing charters, snorkeling, and world-renowned scuba diving.
This air-conditioned oceanfront residence offers spectacular views of the sea. On the back porch, a patio faces a private beach perfect for lounging on deck chairs and reading. Bring your own book or choose a selection from the well-stocked bookshelf. Enjoy the crashing waves and sun's rays as you experience true serenity.
Amenities include washer, dryer, stove, microwave, coffee maker, outdoor gas grill, DirecTV, DVD, and iPod stereo system. The house is stocked with a cellphone and has WiFi internet capability. The water system is UV treated and safe to drink.
The Parrot Tree subdivision is monitored by 24 hour security and features a spectacular swimming lagoon, a large luxurious pool, and the Palapa Bar and Grill restaurant. All just a short walk down the beach from La Casa Gaviota Azul.

The two-story outdoor deck provides wonderful sight lines and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The panoramic view from this deck is one of a kind. The perfect place to pass time sunbathing, enjoying the hummingbirds, and relaxing. Dolphins can even sometimes be seen passing by the rocky point early in the morning.

Retired couple living part time on Roatán. We spend our time walking, boating, diving, snorkeling, watching the hummingbirds, painting and reading.
We have been visiting the island since the late '70's. We bought our first home in Parrot Tree in 2005.
It is a short walk down the beach or road to the pool, salt water lagoon and the bar/grill. There is beautiful snorkeling in front of the house. Nothing beats drinking a warm cup of coffee while watching the waves crash and hummingbirds chatter after a refreshing morning walk.
