My boyfriend and I had a wonderful 3 night stay in this huge, beautiful home. It had absolutely everything you could ask for: equipped kitchen, modern bathrooms, WiFi, TV with satellite, and was decorated very authentically. The deck was huge, but unfortunately we were there during the rainy season in December so we couldn't sit out on the deck much. There's direct access to the beach. To take a taxi to either West Bay or West End it would be $3 US per person. Alternatively, if you like walks on the beach, you could walk. It would take about 20 minutes for us to walk to West Bay. Melissa, the property manager, was extremely helpful. She gave us great recommendations for places to eat, a dive shop to use (RIGHT next door), and helped us arrange transportation to/from airport. I give this property 2 thumbs up! Thanks for the great stay!
The house is great, way bigger than I imagined it and with all that space it never felt crowded or cluttered. It has everything you need and Melissa makes sure you are settled in okay after arrival and is always close by should you have any questions. It is set back from the beach, but you still have a nice view from one of the decks; perfect with a morning cup of coffee! What a great area to be in; quiet, but close enough to town. It is possible to walk to West End along the rocks at low tide, but most of the time we took the water taxi. West End is a really nice town, West Bay is busy because of the blue water and the snorkeling right off shore, most resorts are here as well. If you want to go out for dinner, these are the places where you'll find the restaurants (West End more so than West Bay) Just below, on the beach is Clearwater Adventures. They will set you up to go diving, get certified or go on a snorkeling tour; no matter what, Denisse will look after you!
The house was great. Fully furnished. Plenty of room and everything we needed. Water taxis were easy to flag down. Beach area well maintained. Bottled water replenished timely. The only negative which had nothing to do with the house itself were the unplanned power outages, one on the day of the wedding which was a little scary but the power came back on in plenty of time to get ready for the wedding. We enjoyed many of the attractions and restaurants in the area and will definitely plan a return trip. One suggestion would be some sort of light on the dock at night, water taxis were a little hesitant to drop us off because of no light to see where the dock was. Melissa was very helpful, arranged our initial transportation from airport and was available for any questions we had.
We stayed here at the Island Dream House for 3 days. We have only ever stayed in an all inclusive so we weren't sure what to expect.
What a beautiful house. There was everything that we needed, plus more!!! We never felt the need to eat out, as everything we needed was supplied in the kitchen. Just bring the food!!!the decks were spectacular. Shade if we wanted to rest in the hammock, or swing on the swinging bench in the sun. We had everything that we needed. Everything was so clean and sparkling. It felt just like home.
We especially liked that it was right there on the ocean. The snorkelling was spectacular. We saw so much life in the ocean and the long dock was so nice. we sat there and enjoyed the beautiful sunset each night.
There were water taxi's that would take you to West End or West Bay - for a small fee. this saved us driving or walking to these locations!!!
I would recommend this house to all my friends. It was more than what we could have asked for. we will definitely come back to this house again!!!!
From the moment I inquired about this home, Melissa was so helpful and accommodating. She was quick to answer any questions and continued to stay in contact with us during our trip. Melissa arranged for our transportation to the from the airport. The drivers were all very friendly and always available. The house was beautiful and easily accommodated 5 adults. There was plenty of space and the house had everything we needed. The house is on orchid beach. It's a quiet area and only a short distance to West End and West Bay. We never walked to West End, we took a water taxi, but the walk to West Bay was short and fairly easy. Clearwater diving is right next to the house and Denise rented us snorkel equipment and even offered to take us out on a boat to snorkel. Our last night, Dixie came to the house and cooked an amazing lobster dinner. She was so sweet and it was the best meal we had on the island. We had so much fun during our stay and hope to return soon!
We had an amazing time at Monkey House!!! My husband and I stayed at Monkey House with my parents. It was their first time vacationing in the caribbean outside of an all inclusive. We were all so impressed with the quality of Monkey House and the amenities! The kitchen was so well equipped and fully stocked that we felt like we were at home. There was not a small appliance or dish/serving dish etc that was not already in the kitchen. The house was so well equipped we didn't end up eating out, but you can wave a water taxi down from the dock for $3 they will take you to West Bay or West End. We also spoke to others who had just walked (about 20 minutes) in either direction on the beach to West End or West Bay. So we were VERY happy with the location!!! Sunset every night off our deck or off of the dock on the beach. Just great.
The house was immaculately cleaned. We were a stone's throw from the beach and dock, which we absolutely loved! Juan Carlos rented us kayaks for a SUPER reasonable price for 3 of the days we stayed there, and on Melissa's suggestion (the property manager), we enjoyed kayaking to the reef and saw so much!!! The snorkeling right off the docks was amazing too and we saw a variety of fish, coral, lobster, and crabs! The whole area was so private and quiet. It was truly a taste of paradise.
Overall, we had a great time. The house was better than a home away from home and the location blew us away!!!! Would definitely go back and will definitely recommend to friends.
Perfectly located just minutes from popular West Bay Village and West End Village, Gumbalimba Park/Zipline, Southshore Zipline, Roatan Rumcakes.
