You will have lights, AC, water pressure, and be able to cook. Internet and TV also go down during power outages.
There is a charge for your energy usage. We will charge the most recent kilowatt hour charge from our bill for your group's electricity usage. With intelligent and careful use of AC, lights, and fans this charge can be minimal. This means AC only at night or when in the room, AC set at around 22 degrees, lights and fans off when not needed, etc. Energy conservation should always be a goal if you want to minimize your charges. The meter will be read upon check in and again at check out. This includes light cleaning 1 time during your stay and a deep cleaning after your checkout. Sheets and towels will not be changed every day. Water is scarce and conservation required. We expect guests to keep the house and kitchen reasonably clean during their stay. If you desire more frequent cleaning please let us know so we can book a trusted cleaner.

Reasons Vivaro- West End - North House is the right choice for your vacation:
*You want to be directly on the ocean.
*the large infinity pool (plunge pools are normal on Roatan)

*dedicated managers and groundskeepers - we can get anything fixed or helped if asked
*minutes from West End - dive shops, gift shops, grocery stores, beach bars and great fine dining
*peace and privacy all year - even during the busy season or cruise ship days
Reasons Vivaro - West End - North House might not be:
*The house is self catering. It is a private home, not a hotel. We provide the stunning luxury house - you make your vacation the best ever. We provide light cleaning - not daily sheet changes etc.
*You will need to purchase and bring some household items - shampoo, body soap etc. Some cleaning supplies are provided but we hope you enjoy your vacation and leave the laundry for when you return home with wonderful memories. We have some snorkel gear but not enough for everyone. There might be some pool floats - or the last guests popped them all.
*We love feeling a bit local on fabulous Roatan - meeting new travelers, expats, and locals at Sundowner's is a not to miss activity. Experiencing the small grocery stores, buying some fruit on the street, meeting a local cat, realizing how loud the tiny mosquito eating geckos can be are the some of the many experiences that made us choose Roatan as our vacation spot. If an authentic island vacation does not sound appealing, please choose another spot.
