We are a family of 4 two children ages 16 and 13.
We have traveled to Roatan with my children and the children and our friends, everyone comes away asking to go back. We have home schooled and traveled most of the world over several years 3 months in Asia, 4 months in South America, many months in Europe,
but this remains my families top pick of places to go.
jerri bell purchased this house in 2003
We love this home it's in a local area that is safe and the people are friendly. It is a place for our family to go and unwind from the city life. We have been traveling to Roatan for years and love the Island life this house provides. I think this is best location on the entire island for the view and security of being on a key. We have a full time caretaker that provides transportation to and from the island.
This property can be rented as a 3 bedroom 2 bath for $1200.00 per week or a 7 bedroom 6 bath for 2,400.00 a week.
The views are unbeatable and you can set on the front porch and observe lots of wild life. We have seen pilot whales, spinning dolphins, whale shark, turtles, birds. Its just amazing.
The unblocked view wonderful and since we are not in a large area of people the night stars feel like you could reach up and grab them. There are not many places that the lights do not disturb the night sky. The night sky from the dock is worth the trip. In our salt water pool we have wildlife pilot, fish, eel. you will be amazed at what you can see in the day or night.
3 weeks goes fast when it feels like you're home ! Everything you need to make your stay fun and peaceful. The reef house is right there for the diving, snorkeling, having a few beers or even a meal. The house is on the perfect spot for amazing sunrise, kitchen fully equipped and all commodities. Cable for the TV's is not working properly but still watchable (wish it would have been better for the kids though). Make sure you have enough Lempira to buy your own water and toilet paper (that one, i still don't understand !!! ) Apparently, only the first bottle and rolls are included!??
None the less, it was a great rental for the whole family and George "the care taker payaso" will do his best to help you out with any needs ;-)
Our week at this beautiful place was so restful! It was a joy to be there with the constant surf outside the deck, you have your own personal natural swimming area steps from the door.
This home is off the grid but well appointed! The kitchen has everything you need to cook lucious red snapper, lobster, and crab,, the owners have thought of everything to make your stay fabulous from the pick up from the airport to the grocery stop to the short boat ride to the house. The reef house diving center is next door with the option to enjoy fellow travelers or their meals. Be sure to get some cafe oro coffee- fantastic!. Love this place!
Part of me doesn't want to give such a great review but I truly feel I need to. We traveled just after Christmas, my teen son my preteen daughter and husband and we're the kind of travelers that would rather never see another tourist at all. Let me say this place fit us perfect. Phones turned off only electronics we brought were a laptop to do workouts for my son and a jambox to listen to music! We brought our own snorkeling gear but could easily go next door to the reef house to get everything we needed for a low price. Convenience of a well stocked grocery store easily finding EVERY AMERICANIZED name brand need. Also there's a little store the key quicky store just in case u need more bottled water. The house kitchen is as equipped as my own at home! I love to cook! Only thing I found funny missing was a pizza cutter. lol but who but us would eat pizza on an island! George the caretaker and water taxi driver was so nice and accommodating! Offering to help us with anything and everything! Gina the house lady also cooked us up a local meal that was delicious. I cooked almost every other meal and we only ate out twice. I do recommend eating at the reef house next door. Delicious! And Elam (not sure if that's his name) the fisherman - wow - talk about fresh fish! King crab, grouper, snapper and my favorite LOBSTER! Fresh and cleaned and did I mention fresh!! Exactly what these landlocked seafood lovers dreamed about having available. And lastly the view, the water experiences! Everything from seeing puffer fish the size of a large dog to the schools of parrot fish and more! I suggest a visit to the iguana park and ziplining tour that Dave the taxi driver would take you to. So awesome. We spent most of our days in sheer comfort. The breezes with the open doors and windows in the main living area to the extreme comfort and luxury of air conditioning to sleep in. Large rooms and huge bathrooms. Plus ability to wash clothes! It was just as fun to piddle around in the pool out front as it was to go beyond and find the reef literally out the back door to see gorgeous God made entertainment. We didn't even turn the tv on (well maybe 2 times) which had cable (my daughter however loved the kids channels in her room). Books, games, art supplies, I mean this home was I would say better than a home away from home! Dave, Gina, Elam, the reef house people and most especially George helped make this trip an awesome one for my entire family! Thank you!
This is a super cool escape that comes with a boat a boat driver and scuba shop literally next door. We had the main house and two rooms in the back house. We had a ball sitting on deck, walking the island, exploring Routan, and snorkeling behind the house and a short boat ride to unbelievable snorkeling. We caught buckets of fish and fresh lobsters were brought to the house still alive!!
What a great place to unwind and relax. Blue water and world-class diving off the front porch. Or try out one of the nearby fishing spots for fresh tuna, wahoo, or barracuda. Fly fishing for bonefish - no problem - there is a reef in front of the house, and several others nearby. Or be lazy and read a book with the sea breeze keeping you company. The house has all the creature comforts including cable tv and internet. We enjoyed the onsite staff, including meals cooked from scratch with a heavy emphasis on fresh seafood. Its definitely off the beaten path so you are not hounded by other tourists or time share salesman. Absolutely worth it.
THE VIEW! I must say that the porch is outstanding..... We ate nearly all our meals there while enjoying the fantastic view of the ocean. It has an unblocked view that is huge and the porch is deep to protect you from the sun.
My husband and I and our family snorkled over a reef in front of the house and could see many fish and beautiful ferns and plants. There is also a shallow pool directly in front of the house that our grandchildren played in. There are lots of good places to go sight seeing close by.
The house is very open and friendly. You just start relaxing as soon as you get there and take a breath of the fresh ocean air. The furnishings are very comfortable and it has a great kitchen..... I remember one meal in particular-Redfish VeraCruz made with the fish my son caught that day. Wonderful memories. The house was very clean and well taken care of and adequately supplied.. The caretakers did a great job in helping with all our needs.
We were there a week and the time just flew by we were having such a good time. We recommend this property to anyone that loves the ocean, nature experiences, relaxation and new adventures. Our time there was great......
Wonderful place to relax
