About Marcus Roehmer
We are US citizens living in Playa del Carmen Mexico at the time and operate a Property Management and Vacation Rental company, much like Brad, Ruth and Sam do for us at Monkey La Lay. Island House Roatan will take great care of not only the property but our guests as well. We visit here with our property partners and between us, our 4 kids (All Boys), this is their World's favorite vacation spot! Be sure to click some of the links below to see some of our personal travel photos of Monkey La La, West Bay and Roatan!
Marcus Roehmer purchased this House in 2001

This upper level features two bedrooms, the master with new King bed and the guest with two twins can be configured as a King. Spacious bathroom with shower & tub. A fully equipped kitchen and dining area, large living area with high, lofty ceilings has fabulous barn style doors opening onto the covered latticed deck creating an incredible indoor/outdoor living space surrounded by tropical palms and flowers.

An Amazing House and Beautiful Location!!!!
We love Monkey La La!!! We are 2 couples and had plenty of space in the house. We loved the high ceilings and being able to open up the doors to the front porch. I did not notice in the rental info that the air conditioning was only in the bedrooms and not the living area, but with the screen windows we were never too hot. It is so relaxing in the evening to sit out on the porch and visit. We loved the hammock!! The kitchen is well stocked with dishes. The bathroom has a large shower and a two sink vanity. Having internet was an added bonus. We loved being able to keep in contact with out family via the internet.
It takes you about a 30 second walk to get to your beach chair! Also, the Infinity Bay dock is right next door and this was handy to grab a water taxi or be picked up for a fishing trip or snorkel tour. When the cruise ships are in you have no bother of large crowds because your beach area is specifically for the West Bay Village guests!
We would eat a sandwich for lunch and in the evenings walk the beach and find somewhere for our dinner. Very convenient and the beach walks are beautiful! We would also like to let you know your day security guard was awesome. He was very helpful to sit our chairs out and clean them off every morning. Such a sweet guy! He deserved the tips we gave him daily and hope you keep him around!
Thanks for opening your home. It is amazing and we will be back next year!!
I felt very lucky to find that place.
It is the kind of place you expect in an tropical island with all the confort you required. It is almost at beach (30 meters), secure, private chairs in front of the water and most water amenities at your hand. Very clean and well maintained. Close to hotels with restaurants and Bars. I highly recommend this property to any body and specially to my family and friend. For sure, I would be checking availability in my next trip to that paradise island.
Thank you for the kind review Oscar. I'm glad you guys got in okay and your stay was so wonderful!
Beautiful and sunny apartment!
It was a fabulous vacation
we had in this colorful, sunny and vivid wood apartment
in the Caribbean. The terrace with hammocks was
ecstatic. The house itself had a summer feel inside. All
furniture and decors were carefully put up together. It
was an incredible home altogether. The location is
excellent too. Although secluded, the place is near the
lovely beach of West Bay and other tourist spots. Totally
Heaven on Earth
We came all the way from England with our friends to do some diving and relaxing and were so happy and surprised with not only this home, but the location. We just walked out some 100 meters and snorkeled all day in front of the house.
This was really a great home and location and have made us super fans of Roatan.
Family Vacation To Roatan
Great trip to Roatan and our first experience of renting a private home. Monkey LaLa was a great home with plenty of space for our family of 4. Had a nice couple from Canada staying below in the studio and we spent many evenings together reminiscing about the days adventures.
Staff was fabulous and the property is maintained to perfection. Had a few rainy days but cable tv, internet and plenty of board games and books kept my children entertained.
Beach is absolute perfection...have never seen anything like it!
Thanks Brad and Ruth for the hospitality...looking forward to seeing you soon again!
Wow and Wow!
Came here just after the New Year and will be back later this year again at Monkey La La. Actually met the owner some months back during my travels and he suggested we visit this place. Incredible home and back and forth from the beach all day long. We were literally 30 second walk to the best beach in Roatan, yet the home is quite and peaceful. See you all again in October!
Monkey La La is located in the most desired area in all of Roatan. West Bay has the most pristine beach and calmest ocean waters of anywhere on the island. There is a plethora of dining options as well as availability to tours and excursions right out of your house. However the best about West Bay Village is the opportunity to do 100% of nothing, but relax and recover. An absolute stunning part of the World that will leave you coming back year after year.
