About Chris Densmore
I am an East coast gal who has spent years traveling the world in search of the perfect place to have a vacation house were the people are kind, the weather is perfect, and the diving is fantastic. I found it! When not diving I enjoy swimming, cycling, running, hiking and digging (gardening) in my yard. My constant companion is my beautiful dog Dara.
Chris Densmore purchased this House in 2017
Why Chris Densmore chose Sunnyside
I wasn't sure where on Roatan I wanted to be, and looked in numerous areas before seeing Spooky...a house with character and charm on the beach...I was excited. The property has lush, mature vegetation and a water channel on one side. Further, the Sunnyside neighborhood in Sandy Bay is lovely, private, and so close to the reef. It's ideally located close to the West Bay and West End where shops and restaurants are plentiful.
What makes this House unique
Just 50 yards out from our dock is Incredible snorkeling along the reef in front of the house. The house boasts mature palm trees and shrubs for shade and privacy, while the beach in front provides plenty of sun and unimpeded view of the ocean.

We had an amazing week staying at your beautiful home at Spooky Channel! The house had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. It's a perfect setup for two couples. We spent a lot of our time living on the front deck with the beautiful ocean and sunset views. We loved the ease of snorkelling from the dock through the reef and along spooky channel. We went many times and always found some new things. The fish were spectacular and we also saw lobster, rays, squid, large schools of blue tangs, scorpion fish, angel fish and many colorful parrotfish as well as beautiful purple coral fans, brain corals, sponges, anemones..... to name a few snorkelling highlights. The dive shop also picked up right from the dock. It was easy to get into West End and to West Bay when we wanted to. We thoroughly enjoyed having Shindy come and make a meal for us. She even let us try our hand at tortilla making! Vanessa was wonderful! She stayed in touch throughout our time and made us feel like we could contact her for anything and she gave us lots of good information. The pick up at the airport and stop at the grocery store was really easy and helpful. The location of your home is very peaceful, safe feeling and full of local character. We loved our stay and hope to return some day!
Doug and Cathy, I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay! It was a pleasure to have you and please come back anytime!
My wife and I stayed here a few years ago and had a blast. The house was perfect for those who want to relax and are not into the "bling". The lush palms and hibiscus were fantastic. Snorkling at your doorstep! Open air dining and dive trips are only a walk down the beach.
We were only a very short drive, less than 10 minutes, from the Blue Parrot Bar
& Grill. I understand the owner of the time has moved on but if it remains. It should be a great place to knock down a couple of Salva Vidas or Por Royals. They had a good Lobster/Filet dinner for $14 and shoe swere not required.
I can definately reccomend this place.
Thank you, Hal, for your kind review of our Spooky Channel Villa. We work very hard to maintain and improve the house and gardens. We hope you'll visit us again soon!
Jay and Dana Litman, Owners
Very comfortable, lovely setting, just as advertised.
This was a nice location, very quiet yet only a few minutes drive to dive shops, restaurants, groceries and other shopping. We were very happy with this home and will stay here again when we return to Roatan.
Daniel, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay - do come back soon!
Great location, perfect place for two couples
This property is exactly as described and more. The owner Chris is wonderful to deal with and the property manager Vanessa extremely helpful. The house has everything you will need for your stay. It is the perfect size for two couples and the veranda is an amazing place to hangout. The beds are very comfortable and linens of great quality. We never needed the air conditioner as the open windows provided the perfect breeze. The dock is a great place to watch the sunset!
Thanks so much for the kind words. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and I hope you'll come back to Spooky Channel!
We would stay there again!
We loved most everything about this place. The location was what we hoped for. We were not looking for high end resort type property but rather a clean comdortable cozy place that embraces the charm of this under developed island. The house was equiped with everything we needed. We cooked there often and it was great. The weather was pretty bad for most ofvthe 2 weeks we were there so didnt get much outdoor hanging out at the property. We did enjoy walking the beach toward Sandy Bay and stopping at little bars and restaurants. We stumbled upon Octopus dive shop on our first walk and used it our entire 2 weeks. They are wonderful. We shared the house with another couple and the size was perfect. Owner (Chris) is very receptive and great to work with. Highly recommend thus place. Sand fleas are a problem but we soon learned this is everywhere so no reflection on our place.
So sorry about the weather, but glad you enjoyed your Stay! Thanks for the kind review- do come back anytime!
Pictures Don't Do It Justice
The home is in a perfect location if you are looking to be centrally located in a quiet part of the Island. You are close to everything . You feel very safe here and the neighbors that live there year round would come over and talk with us and give suggestions on where to go. It is very clean and maintained and relaxing place to be. Thank you Chris and we will be back!!!
"Spooky Channel Villa" is named for its location on the beach directly in front of a popular dive and snorkel location called Spooky Channel (there is nothing spooky about it!)! My concierge is Vanessa, who will be sure your needs- before, during, and after your stay- are met. The neighborhood is friendly and safe. Location is great- secluded but just minutes to West Bay where shops, restaurants, and bars are many. Beyond the world class diving and snorkeling the island offers:canopy tours, Botanical and Butterfly Gardens, swimming with dolphins, an iguana farm and animal preserve, horse back riding, paddle boarding, golfing, and more.
