About the property

5 BR 7.5 Bath home, Water view with meal and driving services available

L’Alize, a spacious luxury home, combines convenience and privacy with a good splash of service to make this the ultimate destination vacation home. Guests enjoy unspoiled beauty in privacy, and yet are only a mile from the most desirable tourist beaches on the island, (West Bay Beach) with restaurants, and activities. This is a rare find. Let our staff take the worry out of getting around, grocery shopping or even meal preparation. This home located on its almost–acre of land, with pristine jungle abutting the Caribbean, is a destination in itself with multiple porches, several lounges and 3+ kitchens and its private pool and keyhole beach. Ask about the menu options we offer so you can enjoy a meal at home. We also recommend enjoying several of the restaurants and activities available within a radius of 3 miles. If you feel adventurous, let Edier take the worry out of navigating island roads, and let him drive you to places few tourists find. The location alone makes L’Alizé the perfect destination, yet there are more reasons to choose this home.

*Named L’Alizé for the Refreshing Breezes*

Nestled above a private cove beach (locally called a “keyhole”) on the South shore of the tropical island of Roatan, this large luxury home, enjoys both a constant sea breeze and a dramatic view of the Caribbean. L’Alizé derives its name from the French word for African trade winds, (alizés) which flow East to West during the warmest months of the year. These dramatic winds account for a such a surprising cooling effect on the hottest days, that it quickly becomes clear why Roatan’s earliest towns settled on the South side of the island where these winds rarely fail to cool and refresh while they keep the bugs in check. In January one guest wrote, "We toured the whole island and there isn't a more beautiful property on Roatan. I didn't use any Deet and didn't get a bite."

*L’Alizé Awarded the distinction of a luxury destination*

In 2014 L'Alize was awarded the distinction of a luxury destination for Homeaway’s Luxury Rentals site, by Andrew Harper, a leading luxury travel company TM, . One of 5 luxury rental properties on Roatan which have qualified for this prestigious rating (see luxury.homeaway ).

*L’Alizé Staff*

L’Alizé distinguishes itself from many vacation rentals, in that we have a limited full time staff. We think their service is key to giving our guests the little extras that make a vacation more relaxing and carefree. We like to think of ourselves as a cross between a hotel and a luxury home or simply as a home with staff. If privacy is what you crave, our staff understands and will be unobtrusive, i.e. cleaning the pool early, or cleaning rooms while you are gone. If you would like more help, they will be available. It is helpful to them and us to know in advance, if you will want cooking or driving services.

Eddie our capable groundskeeper will tend the pool and rake the beach each day. He will drive the minibus if you like, taking everyone or just some of your group, to restaurants, or favorite beaches. Our staff can even get your groceries when you would rather get some “rays”, than groceries. Our housekeeper, will clean the house daily or on selected days. Pick the day you would like a meal prepared especially for you.

*The Wild Side*

L’Alizé, where pristine jungle and iron shore meet the Caribbean, may not be for everyone. The beauty of the South Shore is also rugged and wild. Agouti ( in the Capybara family) and iguana scamper up the drive and onto the jungle covered hillside throughout the day. The stunning keyhole beaches just minutes walk from L’Alize, are just as they were 100 years ago. Each keyhole is bordered with ancient iron shore, home to sunning iguanas and Hama lizards and other wild creatures. We have even seen an occasional boa enjoying the sunny salt air. These coves can get mild to strong wave action in the afternoon breezes. This is a great thing for staying cool on the beach and at L’Alizé, and this is the #1 deterrent for bugs , but it does mean that water in the private keyhole can get rough, particularly as the breezes pick up in the afternoon. Most people can snorkel and enjoy the coral and underwater beauty without being bothered by the waves, but others may find the waves troublesome. The first keyhole gets more wave action than the second keyhole, which is narrower and so more protected. The iron-shore (ancient coral pushed out of the sea by volcanic activity) is interesting and how nature says “don’t touch”. This black coral contains fossils of ancient shells and a number of small animals and sea creatures make it their home. It is challenging to climb and the roughest surface most of us have ever touched, so please bring water shoes or tennis shoes, if you want to explore this unusual geologic formation. On these keyhole sandy beaches, there are no shops, restaurants or ice-cream stands, tourist kiosks, rentals, or boat taxis, just wildlife and you, if you so choose.

If your group has a mix of privacy seeking adventurers and tame-white sands-beach-lovers, you might make a concession to split time between the beaches on the wild south side and the tame north side. Ask Edier to drop you off for the afternoon in West Bay Beach. Get your fill of ice cream and the crowds, then come back to L’Alizé. We are only a mile apart yet our beaches are beautifully different. If you prefer tame, flat, white sandy beaches with tourist activity, a vacation rental or hotel on West Bay Beach may be more to your liking. We recognize that the privacy, peacefulness, and untamed nature of the Wild Side, is not for everyone.

*House Layout *

L’Alizé, is spaciously laid out to maximize the 3500 sq/ft., There are breathtaking views from each floor, patio, balcony and almost every bedroom. The third level has two spacious bedrooms and a convenient laundry room. The second level has a great room with kitchen, 1/2 bath, and a large porch for dining and lounging . The 1st level has 2 bedrooms, a living room and kitchen with a porch which opens to the pool patio and an open vista of the keyhole. All bedrooms are fitted with A.C. as is the common area on the second level and the guest house. Wireless Internet is available throughout the home.

The house is rented as a 4 bedroom home but, we offer discounts to parties of 4 or less. The guest cottage is a perfect addition (see rates) if you need a 5th bedroom. This room is ideal for those who like a little more privacy. Its compact kitchen allows you the freedom to store snacks and more.

With 3 Kitchens, 6 bathrooms and many patios, guests can spread out and feel at home.

*L’Alizé suits a variety of tastes*

Nestled in a pristine wildlife retreat that exhibits a wide spectrum of eco systems, L’Alize abuts mangroves and dramatic iron shore with ancient coral. Pick a less breezy day, to take the Kayaks out for a ride to the second keyhole toward Pirates Cove. These kayaks will glide to sights few eyes have seen.

Whether celebrating family events with extended family or joining old friends or celebrating a romantic retreat, L’Alizé offers adventure or relaxation, luxury and convenience, privacy and plenty of nearby activities to suit all tastes.

About Rosanne

Owners' kids slack line across the path to the keyhole beach.

Owners live and work in Central America. L'Alizé's natural beauty and privacy provide a place to catch up on unfinished business. This is an ideal setting for uninterrupted reading, painting or writing. With their children they enjoy exploring caves, the rope swing and snorkeling.

Rosanne purchased this house in 2010

Why Rosanne chose Bay Islands Honduras

A true getaway. Nestled in dramatic untamed beauty on pristine turquoise shores with abundant wildlife, makes this home a refuge as well as a great place to celebrate family gatherings. Restaurants, and grocery stores are only minutes away.

What makes this house unique

L'Alizé has all the modern conveniences of home with amazing privacy.. The view from the second floor great room took our breath away the first time since.. We never get used to the beauty.

The home is well maintained and includes a well trained staff to make a vacation truly relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful home in a secluded tropical paradise!

Guest: Renee (Colorado, USA)

Date of Stay: 05/27/11 Review Submitted: 02/06/12

L'Alize is a lovely place with all the amenities of home. The kitchen on the second floor has plenty of counter space and everything you need to cook your favorite meals. The BBQ on the deck is perfect for grilling up some fish! It seems that there is a great view of the ocean from every point. Whether enjoying a leisurely brunch on the deck, dining at the large table while gazing through the double doors at the ocean, or sitting on the comfy couch to watch a movie or play games, the view is always right in front of you. The beach is just a short stroll away and is very private. The keyhole (ocean inlet) is really lovely to cool off in, or as an entrance to great snorkeling to the right and the left. No cruise ship tourists have been standing on the coral here! There are caves to explore, iguana to watch scurrying over the rocks and other beaches nearby to visit as well. Some people love to swim and snorkel and explore, while others enjoy laying out and working on their tan. I like to do both and this is the perfect place! The benefits of privacy come with the small cost of a very steep hill to get to the main road. A rental car would be very helpful, but it is possible to walk up the hill and flag down a taxi for the short drive to West Bay or West End. We also got the phone number of a taxi driver who dropped us off and just called him to come get us when we wanted to go into town. Gumbalimba park is very close with zip lines and plenty of wildlife (including birds that will perch on your head and monkeys that crawl across your shoulders!) The dolphin show at Anthony's Key resort is always fun as is the little museum there with some information about the islands. If you tire of the peace and quiet, you can head into West End for some excellent dining and live music at several venues on the weekends. L'Alize is an all around great place to vacation. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a little piece of paradise!

Owner response: Thank you for your lovely review. We hope you will come back soon to enjoy this “little piece of paradise” .

Recommended for:Families with teenagers, age 55+, adventure seekers, tourists without a car, sightseeing, girls getaway, romantic getaway, families with young children.

Fantastic house and Amazing staff!

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us stayed at L'Alize last week for our spring break. We had a wonderful week on the beach and couldn't be happier with L'Alize. Dolce was a real gem and prepared delicious food for us as well as just being a delight to brush up on our Spanish with! Eddie was very reliable and easy to be with as well. Our internet worked well all week and we didn't even need to turn on the air conditioning with the pleasant cool breezes. The neighboring roosters woke us every morning, which we enjoyed! The winds were such that we were not able to snorkel at the key hole beach, but we did enjoy the beach itself! We dove with West Bay Divers, which was located very close to the house, and were treated very well there and had exceptional dives with exceptional dive masters. We highly recommend both L'Alize and West Bay Divers.

The best vacation we've been on

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 had the privilege of staying at L'Alize for the last week for our friend’s 50th birthday. We knew our stay would be amazing the minute we walked into the house and saw the views from the balcony. The home sits between lush trees and has an amazing ocean view. The home was very spacious four our party of 8, with four bedrooms - two on pool level and two on upper floor. The main floor included the kitchen which was very well equipped and a balcony that we used often to watch the stars at night or enjoy the daily breezes.

We rented the van and paid the additional fee to have Eddie drive us. I would highly recommend doing this as the roads in Roatan are filled with many holes and could be difficult to navigate as a visitor. Eddie was so accommodating and always arrived early with a smile on his face. It was also very easy to reach him with the loaner cell phones that were provided to us.

We had the privilege of having Dulce cook for us several times while we visited. Her cooking was by far the best food we ate while in Roatan (I didn’t love the restaurants we ate at). She was so sweet and accommodating. Everything was delicious. She was involved in an auto accident the day we left. We would love to hear if she is doing alright.

We enjoyed many activities during our stay. We ziplined, took a mangrove boat tour, hung out at several local bars but “Hole in the Wall” with bartender Captain Ed (who makes a good strong drink) was our favorite. Our favorite activity was taking a private boat trip to Cayos Cochinos. Our tour guide Osman who is located at the Bananarama Roatan Activities booth in West Bay was absolutely amazing. I highly suggest doing a tour this way even with the cost being $150 per person. Drinks, beer, vodka, rum, sodas, juices, water, lunch (coconut rice and beans, plantain chips and local fresh fish) snacks (fruit platter, chips and salsa) were all included. We visited 3 of the 15 islands, were able to snorkel and get to meet the Garifuna community. We truly felt like celebrities with Osman taking care of us. Be aware that the boat ride is about 1 hour. If you get sea sickness (like me), you will want to bring Dramamine.

The only thing I recommend bringing with you is bug spray (that contains deet). We didn’t have an issue with bugs at L’Alize however anywhere we visited had bugs and we were bitten.

Finally, the owner Rosanne was VERY easy to work with and was fast at communicating with me. She answe

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to offer great tips to future guests. Dulce's accident was thankfully a minor skid on her motorbike. Her scraped knee is all healed now but it gave us a bit of a scare. She is sorry she missed saying goodbye. Thanks for being great guests.

L'Alize and Roatan are amazing

  • 5 of 5

We were four couples staying at L'Alize for two weeks. We cannot say enough great things about Roatan, the house, Dulce and Eddy.

First Roatan is beautiful with the rain forests, beaches, snorkeling, weather, and especially the people. It is so lush with so much to admire.

L'Alize was very spacious with four bedrooms - two on pool level and two on upper floor. The views from the upper floors were amazing. The main kitchen was very well equipped for all styles of cooking and baking. Dulce was a real gem to have to do light cleaning or cook or bake for you. We were fairly tidy people and we choose to utilize her services baking for us. Over the two weeks she made us beighnets, honduran breakfast, pizza, muffins - many times, lemon squares and our supper on arrival. Everything was delicious.

We booked the van and Eddy to drive us - so worth every penny. So nice to not have to think about were to go, how to get there and were to park.Eddy looked after everything. We decided to take a tour of the island and instead of booking a tour group we asked Eddy and Dulce if they would give us a tour of their beautiful island. What a great day !!!! We saw so many amazing things and had great times and laughs with Dulce and Eddy.

The two keyhole beaches are great - we didn't find the second one until the end of our trip or we would have spent a lot of time there. Bring blow up floating chairs - great for pool and the keyhole beaches.

West Bay beach is a short 5 minute ride away - Eddy will drop you off and pick you up when you call him from the provided cell phones. Eddy and Dulce will also shop for you while you enjoy the sun. They were a real bonus to have.

Don't forget to bring the bug spray and use it every morning - the no see ums get their name for a reason - you don't notice them until after they have bitten. But with the bug spray and breezes they were fine. The ones that react reacted before they knew they had been bitten.

The glass bottom boat excursion at the round a bout at West end was great - we negotiated a price and were on the boat within minutes. Saw lots of great sea life. What a great experience for all of us but especially the ones that don't snorkel.

We ate at the Argentinean Grill at West End which was awesome, we got chairs in front of Bananarama which were free if you ate or drank there or $10 if you didn't.

The pictures do not do this place justice. It is amazing and we miss Roatan, Dulce and Eddy already. Can't wait to return.

Doesn't Get More Beautiful Than This!

  • 5 of 5

As Iie in bed this morning watching the sun rise with the doors windows thrown open (never turned the AC on), I miss L'Alze already! NO BUGS either! Eight of us shared this amazing, well furnished house for a short vacation (5 days). We sailed & snorkeled with Gemini Sailing yesterday all around the island and enjoyed a few drinks at Sundowner in West End and enjoyed more water views.

All balconies on L'Alize enjoy a wonderful breeze with chairs for everyone....a short walk to the beach for snorkeling, swimming or kayaking! Kayaks are easy to navigate for 2 or 3. We toured the Iron Shore outside of the keyhole. The submerged boat at the mouth of the keyhole had plenty of brightly colored fish for even the most inexperienced of snorkelers.

Dulce prepped fabulous meals (and dessert) and Eldier was more than on time for all of our pick ups. Dinner out one night at the Iron Shore Restaurant at the Grand Roatan Resort. With reservations, we were treated to a table for 8 in the sand, with fresh flowers and nicely decorated table, immediate to the waters edge (West Bay Beach).

We will definitely come back without hesitation! LOVE IT! (Check L'Alize's Facebook page - uploading LOTS of pics)

Wonderful home with amazing staff!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for our group! The home isn't huge, but it is amply sized for a large party. Our group was 10 total, and consisted of myself and my two sisters, two of us with husbands and children. The house was well set-up for our group as it gave us good separation of space, yet we all felt together and connected. One thing I didn't really understand before we got there was that the second floor is really the main level. You enter on that level, and the common areas where we spent most of our time were on that level (kitchen, dining room, living room, large patio) The third floor was a VERY large master bedroom with a private deck and very large bathroom, with another smaller room with 2 twin beds and another bathroom. My family and I took that level, as the stairs up to that floor were too steep for my sister. That's one thing to know, lots and lots of stairs, no matter which level you stay on. The other bedrooms and the den with sleeper sofa are all down on the first floor. The house was furnished with everything you needed to be comfortable. You feel so secluded, yet you are literally a three minute drive to West Bay. We didn't actually end up exploring the property and the keyhole beach as much as we had intended, but mainly used the home as a wonderful place to relax and de-stress.

The thing that really sets this home apart is the service. Both Eddie and Dulce were fantastic!! Eddie was always just a phone call away when we needed to go somewhere. He showed up promptly when called, always with a smile. I highly suggest using Eddie to get around while on-island. The roads aren't well labeled, and the obstacle course of potholes on the roads makes them hazardous to the unfamiliar driver. Worth every penny to have Eddie! I would have liked to adopt Dulce to bring home with me. She as full of smiles and was a great cook. We left her to decide what to serve us, always with local-style foods. Again, worth every penny!! When you are there, you are family and treated with lots of warmth and welcome. We had a medical emergency in the early hours of the morning, and every one of them bent over backwards to help us get it handled, and to feel comfortable with the outcome. They saved our trip with their prompt attention and loving service. Would absolutely stay again!!

L'Alize 2016: Everything we'd hoped it would be!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at L'Alize in June, celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren. It was a large group, thirteen in all, ranging in age from 9 to 73, yet it met all of our needs. It was comfortable, spacious and beautiful.

L'Alize is certainly unique in our experience. The owner, Rosanne, was helpful well before the trip, discussing where people might stay, meals and pre-arrival grocery shopping. At her suggestion, we engaged her housekeeper/cook to shop for us and to make breakfasts, some lunches and two dinners. That was quite convenient and a good recommendation. Similarly we engaged her 12-person van and her handyman/driver to run errands and to drive us to and from meals out, to beaches and shopping. He was reliable, punctual and personable. Driving is difficult on Roatan's hilly, curvy roads. I would recommend one and all to retain him. The price for the van and his services is quite reasonable, and your life will be much simpler.

L'Alize is lovely and elegant-yet comfortable for our teen-agers to flop around. It's three floors, built into a hill, overlooking a short, beautiful valley which ends in a beautiful little "keyhole" beach. One of the most popular parts of the property was a delightful small pool on the lowest level, where all of us spent lots of time, both day and night. There are gorgeous views down the valley to the Caribbean. Everyone felt the view from the 2nd floor living room was spectacular (and it was) until our daughter visited our 3rd floor master bedroom and found the view even more breathtaking! The temperatures were typically around 90 degrees F, but constant breezes off the Caribbean kept the place quite comfortable.

L'Alize is a very vertical property. It is not the place for anyone with difficulty handling stairs. You must climb three flights of stairs to enter the house; the house is three stories, and the steps from the pool into the valley are steep.

With that single concern, we would enthusiastically recommend L'Alize to any group ready for fun and adventure!
