Teal Vista has sweeping ocean views and tropical breezes. Located at the Turrets of Turtle Crossing. This development is in the desirable West Bay area of Roatan. The house has views of the water on the south side of the island. On clear days, guests are treated to mountain views of the Honduran Mainland. Needless to say it is breathtaking. This home is in such a great location on the south shore. There is a very typical fresh breeze that reaches the house, and with the accordion style doors, air conditioning is not even needed. However, if you would like to cool off after a long day, there are air conditioning units in both bedrooms to help keep your evenings comfortable.
The Turrets home owners and guests have access to a community pool that is infinity edged and overlooks the ocean. If you prefer to relax at the beach, it is a 10-15 minute walk to West Bay Beach (depending on how you get there), which one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean and definitely the best beach in Roatan.
The interior of the house is the perfect combination of form and function. You will enjoy the relaxing comfort of this tropical home. The special piece about this house is that it may say 3 bedrooms, but the common ground on the 2nd floor has a full size twin bed really making it a 3 bedroom with a loft. The 3rd floor has a large queen, and balconies in both of those areas, all of this adds up to even more sleeping area than a typical 3 bedroom option but still plenty of space as the home itself is quite spacious. To be clear only the 1st and 2nd bedrooms have AC the other areas are cooled with fans and cross tropical breezes.
Features of Teal Vista include a dining area, island kitchen, Accordion style patio doors in the living room and both bedrooms, living area, outdoor sitting area, comfortable couches, exterior seating on the two main bedroom decks, beautiful bathrooms, and a TV with surround sound and a DVD collection.

This property is exactly as is showed in the picture. Very beautiful and spacious, great for renting with multiple families. We were 6 adults and two young kids. Things that were disappointing, no private pool. I specifically rented this villa thinking that the pool in the picture belonged to the Villa but instead it belongs to a group of Villas and is a short walk from the property so this was slightly disappointing. The kitchen tools could use updating so although the amenities are great (great kitchen), you can't find one sharp knife, everything is dull. Not a big deal unless you plan on doing some cooking. Everything else was just great. Even had a couple of hammocks that we hung to enjoy the beautiful views from the decks. A/C in 2 of the the three bedrooms so plan accordingly. :)
Teal Vista is a Beautiful house in a fantastic location, a nice quiet neighborhood close to all attactions but far enough away that you have privacy. Watching sunrise on the privacy of one of the many porches with Coffee was the perfect start to every day. We even observed the Cruise ships coming to and from Port while sitting on our decks; it looks exactly like the photos.
The pictures of the house and location are spot on. The house can easily sleep 5-7 people in the house. There are 2 complete bedrooms, and a loft with a double bed, and a single. There is another single bed on the 2nd floor landing. Both the Loft and the Landing would make good accommodations for young adults or older children.
The kitchen is well stocked w/ all of the necessities for cooking and living, and for those who would like to do laundry & dishes while away, the house comes with a laundry room and a dishwasher. All the comforts of a spacious home
The community pool was a beautiful way to start/end a day and only a short walk, one house away. Alternatively if you prefer the beach, it is possible to walk to the beach about 15 minutes away. For those who prefer to drive, only a 5 minute drive.
The Roatan Life family (Mike, Liz, Tree, Juliette) took excellent care of us from booking, to organizing a car and along with meeting us and providing the tour of the house. We can't say enough about the excellent service. When we arrived there was a snack package awaiting us and cold beverages in the Fridge, what more could you ask for?
For Dining: The following 3 are excellent:
Oasis - about 5-7 minutes away (the best Korean Short Ribs, Butter Chicken, Lamb and Key Lime Pie we've ever eaten),
Romeo's in French Harbor - Excellent Italian food - try the Fried Ravioli, the pizza - or pretty much anything on the Menu you won't be disappointed.
Celeste’s - in West End has great island cuisine and atmosphere, can't wait to eat there again.
