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 A (454273), has a smaller sunnier deck and fewer windows. *

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!)

Getting Here - Often you will have no other choice, but try to avoid arriving or departing between 10 am and 2:00 pm on Saturdays. Our little airport is almost beyond capacity during those times and lines are long. We have found better schedules (and prices) by travelling to San Pedro Sula (SAP) and then using CM Airlines to hop from there to Roatan. CM is very good (Sosa is not nearly as good, FYI).

About Joan Cooke and Stan Wall

We are from Northern Alberta, Canada and have four sons from age 21 to 29. 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 West End

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.

A Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time staying at Casa Canuck. Joan and Stan were very responsive to our phone call and emails ahead of our trip. Stan was not able to be at Casa Canuck while we were there, but Joan was incredibly helpful with everything. Everything that is on their website is true, from picking you up at the airport, to offering suggestions and advice on where to go, to the beautiful property they have. Everything was great! Joan was gracious and taught one of us how to snorkel, and showed us the best snorkeling spots in Half Moon Bay. Joan introduced us to the people she knows on the island, which enhanced our experience. The book that is in the apartment is very helpful! We cannot say enough good things about our stay at Casa Canuck. It was truly one of the best vacations we have had, and we will definitely be back!!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week stay in Roatan and loved it! Casa Canuck was the perfect place for us. It is the perfect size for a couple and we were able to walk to the restaurants and water taxi in just a couple minutes from our unit. We felt very safe there, too! We were picked up at the airport, taken by the grocery store, and showed around. Then we were ready to vacation! We met a guide when we first got there and he helped us out all week. Our favorite restaurant was Argentinian Grill. Everything we ate there was great! We also went to Spa Baan Suerte for a massage on the dock that was excellent. We took an all day island tour on scooters, but would suggest taking four wheelers instead, little hard on the hind end. But it was still so fun and cool to see the other parts of the island. We snorkeled every day, and took a boat trip to Caya Cochinos which is a dont miss. We saw Eagle Rays, turtles, Stingrays, eel, squid, a huge barracuda, and countless fish. We will definitely be back and would for sure stay with Casa Canuck! If we bring someone with us we will just rent two units from them! Recommend Casa Canuck highly!

Great stay in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Canuck is located within easy walking distance to all of West End while being a nice quiet retreat to hang out at as well. Before stay questions and emails were answered promptly and while Stan was not there during our stay, Joan offered us advise and suggestions for a few things we wanted to do. Since it is a studio, it is not overly spacious but it does have all of the things you needs for your stay and then some and is very clean and functional especially for the price paid. Anyone wishing to stay in the west end without breaking the bank and having a nice place to come home to everyday should consider this property. Roatan is amazing and Casa Canuck helps to make your stay that much more enjoyable. Thanks to Joan and Stan for providing an affordable inviting place to stay.

What a wonderful spot!!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute Joan and Stan picked us up at the airport we knew this was going to be a special holiday! They are such wonderful hosts; a quick trip to the grocery store to stock 'our' little kitchenette and a brief tour of West End is how it all starts.

The room is clean and cute with an efficiency kitchen, a private deck, A/C, and a bathroom with a large walk in shower. It's a short walk to West End (or the Beach!) for restaurants, bars, dive shops and excursions. The excursions you can book either by land or by sea. Joan and Stan are happy to recommend reliable service providers in the area, and they know all the best places to eat!

Our private deck overlooked Mangrove Bight, surrounded by lush tropical vegetation, we could relax with a beverage and watch the lovely hummingbirds dip into the feeder. Bird sounds and small local wildlife complete the picture.

Joan and Stan have snorkel equipment available for guest use, as well as kayaks for water fun and they will guide you through your first snorkel in Half Moon Bay.

Just a fabulous, relaxing trip! The weather was perfect the whole time, and by the time ten days was up we felt like we were leaving family behind. We can't wait to go back to Casa Canuck!!

Loved every minute of our Island Holiday! Thanks again to our wonderful hosts Joan and Stan.

Nice apartment with great owners

  • 5 of 5

Unit has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Only 2 minute walk from West end beach and lots of good restaurants and bars. Owners are great with lots of good advise and the airport pick up and drop off was a fantastic bonus. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

Joan our host quickly made us feel at home. We were met at the airport with a cold beer and were able to do some grocery shopping on the way to West End. Highlights of our stay were the early morning swims at Half Moon Bay resort, happy hour on the dock, runs along the beach to West Bay and a visit to the Monkey and Sloth Hangout at French Key up island. Our larger balcony in Apartment 12 B was shaded and cool. The suite is quiet and away from West End while being only 5 minutes walk away. The suite is small, a small table on the balcony was used for our meals. Preparation of meals was awkward ( small area) but doable. Joan made sure we had everything we needed. Use of insect repellent is important as mosquitos, sand flies and ants can be a real bother. We came home feeling well rested and refreshed . A great holiday.
