Overview

About the property

Upper 3 BR, 2.5 Bath Luxury Unit, overlooking private yard and ocean!

Look No Further! Why be steps or minutes from the beach when you can be right on the sand? St. Mac's is a traditional stand alone Caribbean style villa (3 bedroom unit abpve the 1 BR Beach Front and 1 BR Economy Garden Apt). It has loads of charm and a spacious, open floor plan. Remodeled and updated with a wonderful gourmet kitchen. featuring granite counters, new stainless appliances, microwave and dishwasher. A large dining table area off the kitchen will be a perfect place to serve your fresh local fish, and a guest bath completes the space. Outside, your private Beachfront Garden awaits, lined with palm trees and lounge chairs. Float, swim and snorkel to your heart's content in the clear, warm waters in your front yard. One of Roatan's finest technicolor snorkeling experiences is located just steps away!

Let the sound of waves lull you to sleep in the large King Master bedroom, with sliding doors opening onto the large veranda with ocean view. Soft pillows and nice sheets add to the total sleeping experience. The master bath has twin sinks and a shower/tub, as well as another deck off the back with door to provide cross ventilation. Large Bedroom Two has a King size bed and a lovely wraparound veranda off the back. Fish themed Bedroom #3 features two twin beds with thick mattress pads, a large veranda, and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with twin sinks shared with Bedroom Two.

The Upper Unit's light and airy open living area has floor to ceiling windows, vaulted ceilings and expansive wrap around views of the glorious Caribbean. Enjoy outdoors in, or dining al fresco on the oceanfront covered veranda with the waves as your soundtrack. Lounge the day away reading in your twin hammocks, watch the boats come in, or if you feel like it, do a cannonball off the dock to the left of the villa. All your favorite TV channels are available for your viewing pleasure on our new 50' flat screen TV, as well as a DVD and CD player. Wifi is available at no charge throughout St. Mac's. There is also a separate area with two overstuffed reading chairs and a computer work table area should you need to check in with the world. All rooms have ceiling fans as well as central air conditioning, but you will find the gentle Caribbean trade winds will keep you cool as well.

24 hr Security is on the grounds, a full time landscaper and twice weekly Housekeeping service is also included. Provisions are available down the path at the local deli at West Bay "Mall" and there is good local food, a popular coffee shop as well as gift shops and video & motor scooter rentals.. Many other dining options are also steps away, and numerous great dive shops are located nearby (we like Bananarama). Don't miss the weekly visits of the man selling fresh local seafood when he comes to St. Mac's! The villa is located right next door to Infinity Bay Condominiums, with popular outdoor Sports Bar and restaurant. Taxi boats can take you from the public dock right out front to funky West End with its happening nightlife, and taxis are readily available to drive you back. Enjoy World Class snorkeling and diving just a short stroll down the beach! Our favorite is Blue Planet Divers just right in back of West Bay Village!

St. Mac's is the Oceanfront part of West Bay Village, a small private enclave of Caribbean style homes that have retained their traditional Caribbean character in a concrete CondoWorld. If you are looking for charm and True Beachfront, Look No Further!

We are happy to arrange for our driver, Marty, to meet your flight at RTB airport, then bring you to St Mac's. He will stop at our local well stocked grocery store along the way ($10) for provisions for your cooking pleasure. Marty charges $25 (up to 4 people; $40 for more than 4), and you pay him directly. He can also help with any other transport needs you may have during your stay.

About Sachiko St. Jeor

St. Mac's Villa is owned by two couples who have a longtime love affair with Roatan, and West Bay Beach. We are lucky enough to live in Reno and Lake Tahoe in the summer, and Roatan is Home as often as we can make it down here. St. Mac's is a great place for family gatherings! Nothing says relaxation like a good book, the sounds of waves in the background, a dip in the warm water of the Caribbean, and a beautiful sunset....

Sachiko St. Jeor purchased this house in 1995

Why Sachiko St. Jeor chose Bay Islands Honduras

We started coming to Roatan 25 years ago, in the Wild West days before there were real roads out to West Bay. An ongoing love affair started with West Bay Beach, and St. Mac's was always the best house on the best beach--a true traditional Caribbean style charmer. Time has passed, and we are thrilled to be co-owners with another couple who feel the same way we do! We've been all over the world searching for the perfect white sand beach with world class diving and snorkeling and crystal clear warm water...it is here at West Bay Beach. Despite West Bay's growth and new concrete condo construction, St Mac's is STILL the best house on the best beach, just with more dining options!

What makes this house unique

Enjoy 'steps to the ocean' and a '7 minute walk' along the coast to West Bay Beach? Be True Beachfront, right on the sand! This is the charming yellow house many people stop to take pictures of while walking down the beach. 24 hour Security Guards on site, plenty of parking, and a private Beachfront garden with swaying palms, lounge chairs and beautiful sunsets provided. Incredible snorkeling steps away! Excellent scuba diving close by with amazing reefs and sea creatures to enjoy.

St, Mac's

  • 5 of 5

West Bay Village is a great place to stay in Roatan. We had three couples which made St. Mac's perfect. It has a very large common space and pleasant bedrooms. The kitchen is very well equipped. The staff, Ruth, Brad, Rene and Sonia (to name a few) are all fantastic and so helpful! The owners Sach and Kasey make it so easy to book the experience. We highly recommend St. Mac's.

St. Mac's - The perfect beachfront cottage!

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed with a trip to St. Mac's on beautiful Roatan! Everything you need for a wonderful vacation is found here...a lovely home, efficient management, friendly and helpful staff, gorgeous beach, fabulous snorkeling on a beautiful reef, excellent restaurants as well as a long list of fun activities for the whole family! This was our first trip to Roatan and we couldn't be happier. We want to thank everyone at Island House rentals, the housekeeping staff, the security team and especially Marty and Chef Blackie who made our stay truly exceptional. We look forward to seeing you all again soon! The Neustels

Third Time Here. We defintely will be back

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay A St. Macs Upper. I honestly think that this is the best rental property in West Bay. Your views are incredible with your private beach area. The open structure of the house combines the dining, kitchen and living area into one with great great room with two double sliding doors that provide access to a huge deck overlooking the beach and the beautiful Caribbean. Your privacy and security is assured with 24hr. security. We are definitely going back.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying for two weeks in St. Mac's Upper unit. Right from the first contact, the owners were wonderful to deal with and always quick to respond to any of my emails. We are a family of five so the bedrooms and layouts were perfect for us. The main living area/kitchen/dining room is huge and the entire unit is very well appointed. The kitchen has everything you need and the blender makes fabulous margaritas! We spent many hours out on the large deck. It was a perfect location, including your very own private beach to enjoy with lots of shade. West Bay was really busy for the first week we were there because of Semana Santa and we felt blessed to enjoy our quiet portion of the beach. The maid and laundry service was exceptional and very much appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend St. Mac's to all of my friends and family. We hope to enjoy it again very soon!

Perfect Tropical Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property was a perfect fit for us and we commented throughout our stay about how perfect the location and the house were. We stayed in the St Mac's Upper House and it was our first trip to Roatan. We are a family of 4 traveling with my parents and the layout was awesome. The kids had their own room and both couples had spacious rooms with king sized beds. The light in the upstairs living room is remarkable and you can see the ocean and the beach activity at all times. The beach is just steps away or you can sit on the porch upstairs in a hammock relaxing and watching everything. The property managers were so lovely and helpful. The house was clean and well cared for. I had done a LOT of research before ultimately booking this house and we could not have asked for a better location. The hospitality was also above and beyond as the home owner worked with us for early check-in due to our early flight, which was so deeply appreciated since we had the little kids in tow and wanted to buy food on the way to the house. The kids loved walking down to the ocean and making a left and going to the end of the beach in front of the cliff and looking at the schools of fish. We enjoyed eating at the Grand Roatan a couple of times and at Beachers. Even though we were there during low season, there was no lack for things to do and everything was steps away from the house. If the beach got too busy from cruise ships, we just retreated to the porch and were just as happy. We will stay here again if we get the chance to go back!

Family Trip from Utah

  • 5 of 5

Spending a week in Roatan at the idyllic St. Mac's was a glorious way for our family to enjoy time together, relax and soak in the beauty of the island. There were things to do for all members of our group from age three to 70. We enjoyed snorkeling, the zip line, walking on the beach, playing in the sand and the water, eating at some of the restaurants and shopping as well as laying in the sun, watching the sunsets and photographing the beautiful flowers, fish and scenery.

In the beachfront apartment we had fantastic views of the ocean, the sunsets and palm trees. We could take a few steps from our door and enjoy the beach with plenty of lawn chairs. The facility was amazing and extremely comfortable. Everything we needed was there to cook meals, make treats or just relax and visit together. There were fascinating things to see and do - the snorkeling was amazing and so close. There were places to shop, eat wonderful food, a great fire show, crab races, and a driver always ready to take us anywhere we wanted to go. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable with a lot of space so we never felt crowded.

The owners were awesome to work with. This was one of our favorite vacation spots ever and we enjoyed every minute of our trip. The security guards were friendly and helpful and provided us with an extra feeling of safety. The house is able to provide room for several families so we could each have a private space as well as space for us to be together. The deck was a wonderful gathering spot during the day. The water was clear, warm and inviting
