Overview

About the property

One Queen Bed, Full Bath, Kitchenette, Quiet Neighbourhood, Many FREE Extras!

* NOTE - Our rate is based on $USD 90.00 per night, $USD 550.00 per week, $USD 1970.00 per month. *

* NOTE - our other suite, Casa Canuck Suite B (457116), has two additional windows overlooking the forest, and a larger covered deck. *

Casa Canuck has an amazing combination of proximity, seclusion and complimentary conveniences that other rentals just don't have! Located in West End, on the water at Mangrove Bight, you have only a short walk to the lively center of West End, or to some of the best snorkeling in the world at Half Moon Bay. At home, you can unwind in the quiet and peaceful setting of a tropical oasis, watching the hummingbirds, butterflies, geckos, and other wildlife.

You will be able to relax in your suite or on your private deck overlooking the mangroves and jungle greenery. You can also enjoy direct water access or an evening under the stars on Mangrove Bight from our private dock, and even arrange to be picked up right from the dock for many water activities.

A one-minute walk gets you onto the newly paved West End road where you can find the many dive shops, fishing charters, dining options, shops and nightlife that unique West End offers. We are also ideally located for people looking for accomodations while completing dive courses. Check out EcoDivers and Coconut Tree Divers, both within 2 blocks of home.

We live upstairs full-time, so we are close by if you need anything, but we fully respect our guests' privacy. We are regular friendly people and would also enjoy sharing a visit and a beverage on the dock if you like!

During our time living here, we have learned about good restaurants, things to do, places to go and people that can help you with your Roatan vacation 'bucket list'. Let us know what you are interested in, and we will do our best to get you in contact with the right people.

Each of our two suites has a queen bed, full bath, private east-side deck, shared west-side deck, ceiling fans, flat-screen cable TV, internet, 2-burner cooktop, microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, dishes, water dispenser and drinking water, bistro table and chairs and AC. There is a nice hammock and two zero-G recliner lawn chairs on your private deck, and night security on the property. We also have a propane BBQ/grill for guest use.

Our guests' comfort and relaxation is our main priority! We want your stay to be restful and easy, so we have thought of the little conveniences for you. Coffee? Salt and Pepper? Cold beverages in the fridge when you arrive? We thought of that! Flashlight? Umbrellas? Clothesline? We thought of that, too. Liquid Tide for hand washables? Hangers? Laundry basket? You bet. Scissors? Baggies? Can opener? Yes, even those! Wine glasses? Corkscrew? Candles? Definitely. There is an extra rod in the shower for hanging bathing suits, etc, free snorkel gear for you to borrow, free access to kayaks, and a local cell phone for you to use while you are here. Personal laundry can be arranged for a fee, and guests staying more than 12 days receive complimentary weekly maid service. 'Yes, we thought of that!' And if we didn't, please let us know!

AIRPORT / FERRY PICKUP: Let us know your arrival details and we will be at the airport or ferry to pick you up. We include a cold beer or soda or water (let us know your preference), a stop at the supermarket if you wish, and a comfortable short ride to Casa Canuck. Pickup and return is FREE for all of our guests.

We have a generator and live on-site, so you will still have a working water system and fridge (once we start the generator) if the power goes out.

Please, no smoking in or near the building. We love animals, but guests must not bring pets. We love children, too, but our suites are not suitable for youngsters. And if you enjoy other music besides the birds, the breeze, the boats and the seas, we ask that you keep your volume low. (Unless it is Salsa music, in which case you just need to invite us to the party!)

About Joan Cooke and Stan Wall

We are from Northern Alberta, Canada and have four sons from age 21 to 30. Joan is a teacher, and Stan is 'Stan the Duct Man' - our HVAC and plumbing company in Northern Alberta.

Joan Cooke and Stan Wall purchased this studio in 2012

Why Joan Cooke and Stan Wall chose Bay Islands Honduras

In April of 2011, we came to Roatan for a single day during a cruise. There was just something about this beautiful little island that drew us back, and in April of 2012 we came for a week vacation, looked at a few places with a realtor 'just for fun', and somehow ended up owning this fantastic house in this amazing location. We moved here to our main house to stay in July of 2013, and will continue renting our studios.

What makes this studio unique

The two best feature of our studios are the location and our free amenities! We are a very short walk from the best diving and snorkeling in the world, minutes from famous West End, but in a very quiet and private corner of the neighborhood. We have a mangrove and a dock on the east side of our yard, jungle to the south, a banana-filled yard to the west, and wonderful neighbors to the north. And 'We thought of that!' is how we describe our free extras.

Great Location, Awesome Owner

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at Casa Canuck and we couldn't have asked for a better weekend getaway. Joan was a fantastic host. She has almost every aspect of your trip covered. We didn't do much pre-planning before our trip and Joan gave us all of the information, recommendations and ideas that we needed to fill our entire trip. She provides a booklet with everything you could possibly need to know, including some things that I would consider vastly above and beyond. She picked us up from the airport and took us back to the airport bright and early when we left. She and her husband live in the upstairs unit so she is always close by to answer any questions or help you if you need anything.

The property is in a great location too. You only have to walk a short distance to get all the beach/diving/shopping/food (Baleadas galore!)/and entertainment that you will need for a jam packed long weekend or relaxed week stay. We spent most of our time walking up and down the West End, which is right where Casa Canuck is located. This property is at the end of the busy strip though. so it's tucked away from the noise and all of the people. We felt very safe, and they even have a night watchman which made us feel more secure when we were coming and going every night. It was a private location, tucked into the mangroves right on the water, with a private dock as well (only shared with the couple of other rentals in that unit). We fully enjoyed using the hammock on our balcony, watching the hummingbirds, listening to the water, and sitting out on the dock several of the nights. The place itself was just what we needed, no issues at all, comfortable bed, mini fridge, basic utensils and cups, and a clothesline on the balcony to hang your suits and such.

Joan and Stan both answered all of our questions via e-mail leading up to our trip and sent a plethora of information beforehand as well with things to know and recommendations of where to go. We would highly recommend this location for your trip to Roatan!

Great location, great host!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 4 1/2 weeks at Casa Canuck, in West End, Roatan. It is in a great location, close to snorkelling & swimming, a small grocery store, great fruit & vegetable stand, & places to eat, yet very quiet and peaceful (if you don't count the rooster :) ) Joan was so helpful, and is an awesome snorkelling partner! The apartment is small, but has everything we feel is necessary (comfortable bed, good shower, place to cook when we chose to, & nice outdoor space). We enjoyed many hours on the balcony watching the birds, lizards and other creatures native to the island. We also enjoyed late afternoon "Happy Hour" on the dock, it is shaded by the mangrove trees at that time, and there was always a welcome breeze. It was very fun getting to know our fellow "guests" and Joan, but we were sorry to miss meeting Stan, maybe next time.

Owner's Response: Thanks Beth, I was really grateful for your company snorkelling! I enjoyed your excitement and enthusiasm - you helped me see our little Half Moon Bay with new eyes. And we are back to peace and quiet - the rooster was delicious. LOL

Everything we needed

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay with Stan and Joan. We went to snorkel, kayak and relax and that is exactly what we were able to do. We were able to snorkel both at Half Moon Bay just a 5 minute walk away, as well as at West Bay, just a short water taxi ride away. We used the kayaks to go to Sandy Bay had the perfect day and stayed in the bay on the days when the waves were more than we were comfortable with.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations met our expectations and they are very helpful to anyone wanting information about the island and what it offers. The room is clean and well kept with a location that is off the normal path but close enough to anything that we wanted to do in West End. This is the second stay with this place and we are very satisfied with everything about our stay.

Excellent hosts, convenient & comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

"The property is conveniently located in a quiet area within a short walk to West End and a short water taxi ride to West Bay. The access to the owners dock & kayaks on Mangrove Bight were greatly appreciated. One of the owners was waiting for us with drinks when we exited the airport and took us on a grocery shopping trip on the way back to the property. They provided excellent guidance on restaurants, dive shops and anything else we had questions about and were very helpful with any requests. We rented both of the Casa Canuck units and they were clean, well maintained and made our stay very enjoyable. We spent many enjoyable hours relaxing in the hammocks on the decks. We would highly recommend the property and will return.
