Roatan Wedding and so much more

  • 5 of 5

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.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!!

Beautiful house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Absolutely perfect vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Orchid Village Gem

  • 5 of 5

This home has all the amenities of a custom home. Large well-stocked open kitchen with abundant living space for 2 couples, perhaps 3 couples if utilizing the master suite, or a large family requiring multiple bed rooms because one bed room has bunk beds with its own bathroom. This is a secondary waterfront home (situated slightly behind the "Pink Orchid" (?) house which it too is a very nice custom home that I had an opportunity to walk through) with multiple decks and a great view of the ocean and cool sailboats moored a few hundred yards offshore. The beach and pier are maybe 25 metres down a path where the water is clear and inviting and is a great snorkeling spot.

Water taxis or a rental car (nice private carport for this house) are advisable since the property is not what I consider walking distance to the main road, however being located right between West End and West Bay you're essentially right in the middle of all that action that is accessible by hiking along the shoreline in either direction depending on your choice of adventure. Without a rental car, Orchid Village maintains a working relationship with a taxi/tour guide who is available to schedule for Orchid Village folks (grocery store trips/shopping etc.) and there is always somebody working around the properties daily that can help you in any way. A house cell phone is provided for local calls. Awesome local people whom I owe a favor to that I hope to repay next year. BTW...the security guards are very nice and helpful as well.

The house has a utility/laundry room that is absolutely ideal and a technical rarity that we feel is one of the best amenities to this home. Respect this as it is truly a trust issue being allowed to use Latin American laundry facilities much less their utility room. We REALLY appreciate that, Melissa! If the house has any drawbacks it would simply be the full-size bed in the upstairs bed room to the east really should be a queen-size because a couple does not fit nor sleep comfortably in that smaller bed. Super easy fix. (Oh and be wary...while the BBQ works great, it may eat more than you! lol)

If our friends (a couple) return to Roatan with us next year then we need look no further for the perfect place for the four of us! It's pretty much a given this will happen since Roatan is all we talk about!
