About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, sleeps 4

Discover Paradise - Roatan's crystal-clear, warm waters and brilliant coral reef welcome divers and snorkelers. The coral reef, directly in front of our 360-foot pier, is an easy swim.

Located in the secure tropical garden setting of the Sundancer community, our condo has a warm, comfortable atmosphere. The kitchen with its granite counter and undermount sink, has everything you will need to prepare a gourmet island dinner; the living room has comfortable rattan furniture and a flatscreen TV; the spacious screened veranada with its large ceiling fan is perfect for relaxing and al fresco dining away from any bugs. Two bedrooms each equipped with double beds and new ultra-quiet air conditioners.

The condo is only steps to the pool and even closer to the beach. Greet the morning sun on the screened veranda with a strong Honduran coffee. Later in the day, join your neighbors on the pier for sunset cocktails on the upper deck.

Sandy Bay is well located between the amenities of Coxen Hole (airport, supermarkets, fresh seafood, handicrafts, and open air markets), West End with its fun night life along with many restaurants and bars and West Bay Beach – one of the ten best beaches in the Caribbean.

There is a local bar/restaurant and dive shop, Blue Island Divers, just down the beach! Our staff of local islanders will pick you up at the airport upon arrival to Roatan, answer any questions you may have, and return you to the airport for your departure. This condo has 24/7 security.

Beautiful woodwork. Put your clothes away, put your swimsuit on, grab your dive or snorkel gear, walk 150 feet to the pier...and play until the sun sets.

What makes this condo unique

Condo is equipped with stack washer and dryer, split A/C unit in each bedroom, screened porch/deck. 24/7 monitored security system. A local dive shop, Blue Island Divers, is just down the beach! Eric and Carly will securely store your gear and arrange for some amazing dives!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Staying at Judy's place was THE decision that made our stay in Roatan so memorable. First, the owner's a sweetheart! We could tell she truly wanted us to have an amazing time on the island. Her accomodation is clean, spacious, breezy (didn't use the A/C once!) and stocked with all these little things you need but wouldn't necessarily think to ask about before renting. While peaceful and tucked away in a "jungly" setting, the Sundancer community is also very close to all the beauty and buzz of the west end/ west bay area and the convenience of grocery stores nearby. The community dock is an outstanding bonus as it allows for relaxing in the sun "no-bugs-style" and the snorkeling is just brilliant. Rays, turtles, pufferfish, barracudas, giant starfish... underwater museum for free, anyone!? ;) After chatting with others residing in nearby cabanas (not owned by the lovely Judy!) we quickly realised we had it all! Hot water in all sinks (no shortage), drinking water, no extra electricity fees, gas stove, washer-dryer, screened porch, safe, cell phone, ceiling fans in every room... Her friend Ron who picked us up from the airport was also very nice! He helped us out with configuring the phone, internet, our car rental... and would have been more than willing to help us with finding deals and spots for various excursions had we chosen to do so. I honestly do not have one bad thing to say about this VRBO, and I would recommend it to my friends and family any day. Big thanks to Judy; we'd chose your accomodation again, no hesitation! :)

What a Gem. Relaxing in lovely Roatan

  • 5 of 5

Feb 8th to 19th 2018 Stay. We had an amazing stay at Sundancer 3B. Set in a tropical paradise this unit is well equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Sandy Bay is a great location just a short cab ride to town for groceries or West End and West Bay for beach, restaurants and night life. Most of our days were spent relaxing in the tropical breezes on the pier and at the pool. Snorkeling is amazing in Roatan with the reef only a short swim from the end of the pier. The water is actually warmer then the pool! We spent most nights catching up on the winter Olympics and world events with the surprisingly good TV and Internet. We all slept well with AC on in the bedrooms at night. Everyone we met from other tourists to expats to locals were friendly and helpful. We can not wait to go back again.

An amazing get away

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this very calm and relaxing area. The closeness to the beach and being able to take a morning walk an almost be all alone or just sitt and realax with a coffee on the balkong gave use just what we were looking for. The apartment has everything that you need and if you want good bit to eat or chatt with some amazing people you can always walk to Salto Mango.

This sure gave us a test to come back.

A quiet, off the beaten path location

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived back from a 2 week stay in what we referred to as the "tree house". The Sundancer area is small and quiet and the condo was perfect for our needs. The pier was a regular hangout location to jump off of, snorkel to the amazing reef, meet new friends and watch the sunset. The Salty Mango restaurant is close and the food and staff are amazing. Having a car allows you to tour the island, we especially enjoyed West End, Daniel Johnson Sloths and Monkeys and BlackPearl golf course. We really enjoyed the pre-made arrangements for airport pick up and drop off. Ron and Erica were fantastic and we arranged a island tour with Ron which was focused on the East end of the island where majority of the residents of Roatan live. We highly recommend the tour as you see how the local live. Ron stopped at Eldons grocery store on the way to the condo and its very North American focused and had a lot of familiar brands. We also enjoyed buying fruit off the small stands in the West end. Both West Bay & West End have a variety of restaurants. The pool is a great place to relax also, lots of wildlife to view and listen too. The environment around the condo is very jungle like and keeps the condo cool. All the ceiling fans help to keep the air moving and the dryer comes in real handy to dry your towels. We arranged thru Erica a house keeper to come in half way thru. We enjoyed our time on the island and will return one day. Our only recommendation is to have portable chairs available to take down to the pier.

Picture perfect!

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived we were picked up at the airport and taken to the grocery store. We bought for breakfast & lunch and spent about $125. The kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed to prepare breakfast & lunch. It also had some spices for seasoning available. When we arrived we were greeted by Erica who gave us a walk through of the house. It's a short walk to the water and the private dock where you can snorkel from. You can swim to the reef just make sure you can be seen by boats who also use the space to get to the dive spots. Blue Island Divers is 2 doors down and have an excellent operation with dive masters Ernesto, Laura and Yago (he was headed back to Spain so I'm not sure he will be there). This is where we spent our days. We could walk back to the house for lunch. Initially at night we took taxis and it ran $2 per person each way into West End. We rented our own car on Tuesday which I highly recommend. We no longer had to wait at the road or haggle over fares. We took a drive down the island to French Harbour and Jonesville. Absolutely beautiful and shouldn't be missed! We didn't spend a lot of time in the house but there are 2 bedrooms each with full size beds and a/c for sleeping it was very comfortable. The living room has a small tv, wicker love seat and 2 chairs. There is also a table that sits 4. We ran the A/C at night when we got back home and washed/dried 3 loads of laundry and it was just $20 for electricity. I think this is the perfect way to charge your customers. Why pay more per night if you don't use it. 3B in Sundowner suited us perfectly! If you are looking for a comfortable place to lay your head at night this is the place for you. We can't wait for our next trip to Roatan. Cassie & Tim thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

Quite lovely vacation home steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautifully landscaped and maintained...set back from the main road just far enough to be quiet...we loved the screened in porch especially and sat out there for hours relaxing, eating, listening to the birds, and enjoying quiet, peaceful time when we werent out having adventures. We enjoyed swimming off the dock and out to the reef and the private dock was a popular sunset location for other renters/owners in other units...basically there are homes built with 2-4 rentals in each...nice between so there is privacy and beautiful jungle views and a peak of the water from our bedroom. We cooked most of our meals and appreciated the full size fridge so we didn't have to grocery shop very often. We brought some very light weight carry bags/packs to transport our groceries...and learned to take the collectivos or group taxis instead of the more expensive they went to little village areas we wouldn't have seen otheriwse. The bathroom had consistent hot water and plenty of other guests had left a few personal care items like sunscreen or basic first aid supplies..we added a little, too...the property was clean and well maintained and help was just a call away if we needed anything. We were not bothered by barking dogs or proud crowing roosters, although we were quite entertained by a mama hen and her little tiny chicks.

The nearby dive shop and restaurant there were friendly and the food was outstanding...we only went for late breakfasts or lunch and enjoyed banana pancakes and the best burritos ever. We also enjoyed using the snorkeling gear and not having to rent or haul the internet and cable TV were nice some evenings...we never needed the AC at all...we loved Roatan and hope to return...and would choose this unit again for sure...if we don't move there first! thanks to Tim and Cassie for making this a dream vacation for us.

Awesome 2nd Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here after meeting the previous owner on the beach during a short stay off of a cruise trip. She convinced us that we should look into staying at her condo next time we came to Roatan. We rented for a week and were well taken care of the whole time by Erica and Ron. The condo was well equipped and clean and nicely located. We used the pool often and enjoyed the lush greenery and all of the birds! We were able to use the house phone provided to get transportation and adventure whenever we wished. The food on the island was teriffic. We shopped at a local fish market and made a seafood dinner in the condo with the full stocked kitchen. The weather was perfect. We swam and snorkeled. I got to do my first SCUBA dive with Blue Island Divers right next door. Eric and his operation will take you on the best dive in one of the best reef experiences in the world! So happy with the entire trip. We felt very safe and well taken care of the whole time. Definitely would like to go back again!
