This villa has tree top views of turquoise water from its ocean front second and third floors, which provide wonderful privacy yet constant wonderful scenery. It is the upper end villa in a development of only 6. The property next to this villa is part of a large private estate where the home is considerable distance away.
Have your cake and eat it too. : You are still within a well lighted area of West Bay Beach with an easy walk to its amenities without being right in the middle of it. There is snorkeling and shore fishing right out front and a short walk to dock fishing. Fishing Charters and Scuba Diving businesses are a short walk away.
Bayside is at the eastern end of West Bay Beach but still on the West Bay Beach side of the canal. There is a bump-out of ironshore that acts to stop the bulk of the vendor and day visitor foot traffic. You may use the boardwalk to cross the ironshore. Bayside is still within the part of the bay where there are lights and watchmen for the resorts and restaurants. You can easily walk down the beach to these amenities but do not have to share in the noise or traffic.
The road access to the beach in this area is private access only.
Second largest Barrier Reef: The reef comes right up to shore at West Bay. It is a very sheltered bay with excellent snorkeling opportunities. While there has been some siltation of West Bay it has not experienced the problem to the extent of some of bays with older developments.
Because this bay is at the end of the island it gets fresh water coming into to it. that creates a place where marine life come to feed.
Left a career in IT Project Management and satellite systems engineering to move with my husband and teen son to Roatan. It was the best thing we could have done for our son and ourselves.
It is on the most beautiful beach on Roatan yet is not in the thing of all the hubbub. It is on the West Bay Beach side of the canal and the ridge. It does not have public road access to the beach where it is located and it is an easy walk to amenities.
It is water front with a white sand beach an coral very close to shore. It has fabulous views of the water through double pane glass sliders; split AC units and quiet concrete construction.
