My wife and I are former medical professionals, now business owners who discovered Roatan while on a medical mission with our church. We simply fell in love with Roatan and hope to live in our home permanently when we retire.
Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2007
We wanted a quiet private tropical place on the ocean to escape the fast pace hustle and bustle in the states, a place where we can read in peace and sleep with no other sounds, but the ocean. And still the ability to go the other side of the island where there are more activities.
We had a wonderful time in Roatan. I swear we drove down every road on that island! The house was wonderful. We spent alot of time reading books on the porch or on the beach. The kitchen was so well equipped that we fixed almost all meals right there. And if it wasn't raining we ate at the table on the porch. We took a kayak out on First Bight, and checked out Parrot Tree Plantation across the way. We went to Half Moon Beach in West End twice and did the South Shore canopy zipline tour. We found the meat market in French Harbour and got some nice steaks to cook on your big grill. We bought a bag of sugar and Linda whipped up some hummingbird juice and kept them feed all week. At night bats would drink from the feeders too!
We met some very nice people at the craft market in Coxen Hole. And we made friends with Penny who owns Serenity gift shop near French Harbour.
So thank you very much for letting us share your corner of paradise. Maybe we will be able to go there again some time.

Truly a "home away from home". The house was very comfortable and there was plenty of room for our family of six. We LOVED the view, shaded areas to relax, the pool, access to snorkel and scuba dive right from the house. The grocery store had everything we needed and we cooked most meals at the house using the BBQ grill or stove/oven. All worked great.
The constant breeze kept the need for bug repellent to a minimum and the we had no need for air conditioning.
Adeberto(who lives onsite) and Miguel were attentive to our needs and Mac the property manager was great meeting us at the airport and getting us situated with our rental car and first grocery store visit.
We would definitely love to return to this awesome getaway!!
Everything was as stated. All appliances worked fine. This is a very nice house on the beach.
This place is a gem that is even more beautiful than the pictures if you can believe it. We had 5 adults and one 2 year-old here and there was plenty of room for everyone. Our daughter loved the house, the pool was perfect for her and the private beach was amazing too. We had a great time exploring the island of Roatan, but there was so much to do around the house and just relaxing on the porch and in the pool and on our private beach or the amazing snorkeling right off shore that it would have been fine if we just stayed at the house all week! Mac the property manager was great, he had great recommendations for us and hooked me up with a great dive outfit (Tropical Island Divers), and Adeberto and his wife, who lived right outside and took care of the day-to-day stuff, were amazing, wonderful people who were very helpful, even rode with me to the fish market to help me find where to buy some fish to cook on the grill. We met so many nice people on the island and had such a great time I'd recommend Roatan to everyone, and this house really can't be beat.
I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful home for 9 days, and I wish it was much longer. The house sits on its own private beach in a quiet residential area. I did not see any neighbors during my stay so it felt like I was on my own private island. I spent most mornings scuba diving the amazing reef, which happens to also be located right offshore from the house. I did tour most of the island, and while it was nice, I couldn’t wait to get back to the house every day! I spent many afternoons enjoying the gentle ocean breeze while swaying in the hammock under the palapa on MY VERY OWN BEACH. The sound of the waves provided a nice backdrop for my daily siesta. The swimming pool was a nice spot to cool off on hot afternoons, as well as a good place to watch the sunsets. The house provides ocean views which can be enjoyed from the living room, dining room, and kitchen area, but also right from the bed in the master bedroom. Imagine waking up to that view every day. You do need a car if staying here, but decent restaurants and a well stocked grocery store are a short drive away. I recommend stopping at the Bulk Gourmet and picking up some steaks and chops and enjoying them back at the house on the professional BBQ grill that is provided. The owner left me a very nice welcome basket and also arranged to have Eddie meet me at the airport. Eddie was very helpful and was just a phone call away if I had any questions. I can’t wait to return to this awesome house! The house has all the conveniences you could ask for: sattelite TV, DVD and CD players, wirelss internet, and a cell phone for local calls. There are kayaks provided, and the bay area (which is much calmer than the ocean) is a short walk down the private road. Although I had heard stories about the Roatan electric company being unreliable and having daily blackouts, I did not experience any pwer outages during my 9 days here. I highly recommend this place and I will be back soon!
We had a Great time staying at a beautiful house and a wonderful location. All the help from the property manager with the planning and details was great.
I need to let you know that our group consisted of 6 people. Myself female age 54. Males ages 35, 29 and 25 females age 24 & 27. One being my son and 2 were daughters. We had a great time and shared much time together. We spent most of our time at the house outside enjoying the pool, snorkeling in the sea, kayaking, relaxing in the hammock,reading books, and talking in the comfortable outdoor furniture on the very large wrap around deck. Pictures don't even come close to what it really looks like!
Upon our arrival we were greeted by Kevin and Claire who make you feel so welcome and are a wealth of information. They helped us get our rental vehicle. I might suggest that if you are use to driving an automatic you might want to request that when you make your rental reservation. Many of the rental vechicles are manual. After getting our rental van they took us to the grocery store and then we followed them to our rental home.
The kitchen area is very accomodataing for large groups. Most of our meals were cooked at the house and we did buy fish and lobster from one of the local fishermen who will come to the house and ask if you want to buy any. Restaurants that either some or all of us went to were Frenchy's, Cals Cantina, Pineapple Grill and Gio Seafood. I would recommed them all. One of the highlights on our stay was having Clair arrange for a local woman and her daughter come to the house and make our meal,serve the meal, and do the dishes. It was DELICIOUS ! We also learned from them how a cocunt is cut, husked, and opened.
Two of the people in our group scuba dived and they were so impressed. Saw things that they had not seen before. I snorkeled 3 of the days walking straight out from the house.( I do suggest to wear water shoes for walking out) I even saw the reef wall which I had not experienced before. Take advantage of the days when the water is calm. We had a few days where the waves were a little to big for walking through the coral to snorkel.
We did do a fishing tour one day. 5:30 am - 2:30 we left from a dock about 300 yards from the house. We should have taken a few more light weight pieces of clothing that covered our arms and legs. There was no tarp or covering on the boat to stay out of the sun. We did use 50 proof sunscreen and we still all got sunburned. Besides the fishing we saw beautiful beaches and mainland from the waterside.
I suggest to take no cell phones and no computers. ENJOY!
