About Al or Sandra Segarich
Sandra and I have been together 28 years. We retired from hectic careers in Western US and Canada in 2007. We love animals and help local people care for their animals and coordinate veterinary care. Sandra is working on a masters degree in holistic nutrition and I stay busy maintaining the houses, property, and equipment. We both golf and are members at our local PGA course. We love our lives in Roatan and like to share our piece of paradise with guests.
Al or Sandra Segarich purchased this House in 2008
Why Al or Sandra Segarich chose Sandy Bay
We have been certified divers since 1993. We knew we wanted to live in the Caribbean and fell in love with Roatan in 1997. We found our dream property with an old island home on the beach in 2001. It is just our house and the guest house on our 2.5 acres from the road to the beach. No need to walk through other neighborhoods. We recently decided to rent our guest house that was built in 2007, but finished/upgraded in 2011 and now we make minor upgrades to both houses often.
What makes this House unique
The beach is right out your front door. You can quietly relax in a hammock or lounge chairs on our private part of the beach. There is no local access through this property and rarely motor vehicles on the beach here. Snorkel or take the kayak out about 150 yards to Spooky Channel or just swm from the dock out front. Anthony's Key and Roatan Institute of Marine Science is just 1/4 mile away. It's quiet but centrally located within 10 minutes and a dollar and a half taxi ride to both West End or Coxen Hole.

Fun in the Sun
This property is as shown in the beautiful photo. All the amenities and conveniences you could need and the hosts are available for suggestions. We really enjoyed our time at the spooky channel guest house. Close, 5 minute walk along the beach to restaurants and dive shops. Would highly recommend this stay
Great Find in Roatan
Everything about this property is as stated in the other reviews. The house itself is comfortable and the area outside the house is beautiful, right on the beach, not to mention the reef is a 5 minute swim from the end of the dock. Al and Sandra are great hosts, always available with useful information and fun to talk with. Can’t say enough about this property as a home away from home in Roatan.
Lovely Home, Beautiful Property, Kind and Helpful Property Owners.
The picture says it all. The cute cottage is beachfront, situated in one of the best snorkeling locations in Roatan. Al and Sandra are terrific, gracious and kind. Rides to and from the airport were greatly appreciated, as well as trips for groceries. I think they wondered why we never "did anything", but the place was so nice we just wanted to enjoy it. Swimming through Spooky Channel to hover over the outer reef was a blast, and just enjoying the sunshine and beauty of the setting was enough for us. Maybe someday if we went back we'd see what else Roatan has to offer, but for this trip the cottage was enough. Lastly, a suggestion: Sandra will try to tell you the small mangoes are fibrous and not that good. Don't believe her; we inhaled them, sweet and juicy. Given they were laying all over the grounds we didn't feel too guilty about raiding the supply.
A great place to stay in Roatan, no matter what you want to do there.
I’m not sure what to say that hasn’t already been said in other reviews. Everything about our stay here was wonderful. Al picked us up at the airport, took us to the grocery store, then to the house. Once we got settled, Al and Sandra drove us over to Blue Bahia Resort so we could get checked in with Roatan Divers for our upcoming week of diving (would highly recommend Roatan Divers as well – great operation and location near the house).
Had lunch with Al and Sandra at Blue Bahia and then headed back to the house. We were diving most of the week, so our time at the property was largely limited to mornings and evenings, but we couldn’t have been more pleased. The house has everything you could want or need for a comfortable stay; kitchen was very well setup and had everything we needed for cooking meals, bed was very comfortable, AC in the bedroom was great, etc. The property is beautiful. We had fresh bananas every day, Al gave us some roasted cashews that came from their trees, and the view from the screened porch is stunning.
As so many others have said, it really is a great place to stay, and Al and Sandra were awesome hosts. Not intrusive at all, but available if needed, and just great people to hang out with. We spent time with them on the property and went out to dinner and then did a little bar-hopping with them on our last night on the island and had a great time.
Thank you Al and Sandra – give Jack a scratch for us!
The guest and our classic, island house are the only houses on our private, 2 1/2 acres from road to beach. There are many fruit trees, and plants that you are welcome to.
The reef is just 150' and is at the famous Spooky Channel with lots of marine life for divers & snorkelers.
This is a quiet area of Sandy Bay. There are several restaurnts/bars within walking distance and many more a short taxi ride away. You don't need a care here as taxi's run on the main road every couple minutes and cost $1.50 per person to West End or Coxen Hole, both about 10 minutes away.
