Overview

Half Moon Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

Four bedroom (king, 3 queen, twin), Four bathroom (3 ensuite), Sleeps 9+

Looking for high-end accommodations in West End? Look no further—our beachfront villa on Half Moon Bay offers the authentic Roatan experience, plus all the amenities you’d expect from an upscale resort.

We’ve designed each room to be a retreat in itself. The villa boasts four spacious bedrooms, three of which have in-suite bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms have views of the Caribbean, and all four have their own flat-screen TVs. The master bedroom is especially luxurious, with vaulted hardwood ceilings and floors and a private balcony that looks out over both Half Moon Bay and the Caribbean. Each room is decorated in an eco-spa style, giving the villa a sense of tranquility and comfort.

Outside, you’ll find a private infinity-edge plunge pool, which overlooks the ocean. Coupled with the partially covered patio and resort-caliber furnishings, it’s the perfect place to kick back and relax.

In addition to all this, the villa features dual-zone AC, a brand new water filtration system, a high-end kitchen with granite and stainless steel accents, plush linens, an infrared BBQ, and high speed Wi-Fi. We also provide a full concierge service through our local property manager, and our private chef is available upon request.

For travelers who want an authentic Roatán experience, the villa couldn’t be better situated. West End is known as more of a neighborhood than a resort town, and you’ll find fewer tourists here than you would in West Bay. Even so, there are plenty of activities within a half hour of the villa, including dolphin encounters, ziplining, horseback riding, scuba diving, and golfing, to name a few. You can even visit an iguana farm!

You don’t have to go far to snorkel—hop in the water right off the villa, and you’ll be swimming in the world’s second-largest barrier reef. Approximately 96% of all Caribbean marine life is found here, and you’re likely to encounter sea turtles, lionfish, lobsters, and more.

It’s rare to find such luxury in West End. Get in touch with us to book your dates today!

About Dennis Hoffman

We live in the greater Boston area with our four children (15, 13 and a pair of 9 year olds as of the year we bough the villa). Originally from upstate New York and Seattle, Washington, we moved here almost 20 years ago for work and to raise our family. We love to travel, dive, ski, and generally explore the many amazing experiences the world has to offer.

Dennis Hoffman purchased this villa in 2012

Why Dennis Hoffman chose Bay Islands Honduras

We purchased Half Moon Bay House after staying in one of the sister villas with our children in March of 2011. During that trip, we explored the island, did a bunch of diving, hit the zip lines and generally decompressed. It became apparent over the week that Roatán was an island on the cusp - in the process of being 'discovered' but far from over developed and commercialized - and West End was a truly unique and frankly, cool place from which to experience all that Roatán has to offer. We had such a great time, we wanted to own a part of it and, hopefully, share that with you and guests from around the world.

What makes this villa unique

The most unique aspect of the villa is its location. There are luxury accommodations all over the world, but there are only five on a coral peninsula in the heart of West End village on one of the last true, undiscovered Caribbean islands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I had seen a show on HGTV's International House Hunters that featured Coral Vistas. After our jaws hit the floor, we taped it to show to our usual Mexico travel buddies. The seven of us have been renting houses in Playa del Carmen for 18 years, but it has lost its' luster. Too big, too expensive, and now full of American fast food places. We pined for the old Playa of simpler days with local charm and authenticity. After getting together and watching the tape everyone wanted to go there. So, we looked it up on the internet, and the descriptions and pictures we found, only convinced us more that we needed to make it this winter's escape from Minnesota. The seven of us spent a fabulous week at the Half Moon Bay House, old Playa rediscovered, only better!



We were rewarded by a better than expected experience. Roatan is a beautiful, laid back island with beautiful beaches and extremely friendly people. The house surpassed our highest expectations. It was very clean and wonderfully decorated with fabulous views in all directions. Someone from the agency that manages these properties met us when we arrived and filled us in on all the great things there are to do on the island. Anytime we had a problem or a question, help was just a phone call to the office and a few minutes away. Most everything we wanted to do was literally just steps from the house. Great affordable restaurants, bars and shops, and a spectacular beach. We didn't do as many things as we initially thought we would, because sitting on the front patio by the pool with balmy breezes, great views, a cool drink, conversation or a good book was so relaxing that it was difficult to budge us.



One of the greatest experiences we had was to hire a cook ( Susan ), and have her cook us an island dinner at the house. Indescribable! We can all pack in a good size meal, but we still had enough leftovers for another meal. Another must, is to hire a boat with crew, which is very easy to do, and go by sea around about a third of the island to a wonderful and quirky restaurant called the "Hole in the Wall". Would you enjoy all the Lobster tail and barbeque you can eat for $25.00? We sure did!



Oh, and the best for last. There is not one single American fast food joint in West End!



We are having a Roatan group reunion this weekend, and there is no doubt that we all want to go back next winter, only for two weeks this time.

Place was great! Outstanding location in the heart of West End overlooking Half Moon Bay.

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed and cared for home with all the modern amenities. Dennis (the Owner) was easy to work with and the folks at Roatan Vacation Rentals took care of us. Roatan is extremely easy to navigate, the locals speak fluent English and the restaurants serve both American and Honduran food. Be sure to check out Marco at Dix's Halfway Inn. For a great meal, have dinner at Roatan Oasis-up on the hill just a few steps from town. We did everything from zipline, to horseback riding to fishing to Mayan jungle to renting scooters and touring the island. What a great place!!! Did not see a cloud in the sky the entire week we were there. In the middle of Half Moon Bay is an old sailboat they have converted to a "water jungle jim". Make sure you swim out there and jump off the high platform.

If there is one negative-and a you really have to look for one, its the cruise ships. From Monday through Thursday the ships come in and drop off the passengers. From 9:00 am to 4:00 pm the West End gets a little crowded but once they leave its back to normal.

We will definitely return and when we do we will be staying with Dennis at Coral Vista #1.

Words cannot accurately describe......

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying at this property, 4 1/2 years apart. Both times with different adult friends. Everyone loved it. Words and pictures cannot adequately describe this home due to its location and convenience to surrounding amenities. The concierge services offered through Roatan Life truly give staying here the feel of a 5 Star resort with the privacy of a home. We will return again and again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to share you're thoughts with future guests. We're so happy you enjoyed your stay. Return visits - even 4 1/2 years apart - are the greatest compliment. Come back soon.

Coral Vista, simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had the best multi family vacation of all time. Two families totaling 10 people, very comfortable, with great access to everything Roatan has to offer. Bertha and Lizz were great, and we enjoyed Chef Susan on multiple occasions preparing meals. The area was safe and had so much to do and to enjoy, with the house so well appointed we were never wishing for more.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa with all the modern amenities. Very comfortable stay with amazing views of Half Moon Bay, and literally only a few steps away from the water. Food and shopping available just outside your door. A security guard was sitting outside at night, right at the stairs to this beautiful villa, almost as if you have a personal door man. We had a fantastic time.

The best location we could have imagined!

  • 5 of 5

Coral Vista #1 was ideal for our vacation in Roatan. We enjoyed the large kitchen, inside and outdoor dinning areas, and large patio where we usually congregated to relax. The pool was ideal for our child... but the ocean, steps away was absolutely amazing. Bertha was so helpful and always available for every need. Pedro also was available for anything we needed as well. The kayaks were ideal to play in the water and we were able to find some really good snorkeling spots that were accessible through kayaking. All in all, staying at Coral Vista #1 exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend this villa during your stay in Roatan! Happy travels...
