About Adrienne Larkin

We are a professional couple living in the San Francisco Bay Area. We created La Diosa as a special place of beauty, fun, and relaxation. Even after staying at La Diosa so many times, it is still so fantastic to be there. We know you will feel that way too!

Adrienne Larkin purchased this villa in 2003

Why Adrienne Larkin chose Bay Islands Honduras

After traveling throughout the Caribbean, we came upon Roatan and fell in love with it - its natural beauty, its people, the wonderful 'something special' about it.... We looked at many houses and places until we came upon this amazing 4 acre property. The breezes were wonderful even on a hot day, the views went on forever, and even though it had been a bit neglected we could see ourselves building a special place there, among the trees, honoring the earth, a place of peace and serenity.

But fun too!

What makes this villa unique

When I come to La Diosa, it is as if time just melts away. I get up with the sun and kayak in the early morning, take a swim, saying hello to the fish around the reef -- then come back to the gardens, lounge around the pool, read, write in the tower, snooze in the hammock, go horseback riding, explore, whip up a meal in our huge kitchen or just take a walk among the trees. What could be better? What a blessing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is my second stay at La Diosa and it was just as beautiful as the first time. I went the first time with my husband and it was a relaxing and romantic getaway. The views are spectacular and you feel immersed in the sights and sounds of the tropical forest. What really surprised us was how chic and comfortable the design and furnishings of the house are. We are in the fashion business and travel extensively for both leisure and business and the house is very unique for the Caribbean in being so comfortable, elegant and whimsical. We were instantly transported into our own paradise. The staff was attentive but unobtrusive which is exactly what we were looking for. The house is very spacious and open and made us think it would be a great place for a party. We had been raving about our experience to some of our friends and we all decided to go together. When we

arrived the staff remembered us and gave us a warm welcome. Although there is a lot to do on the island, we ended up spending most of our time at the house, swimming and kayaking and cooking in the beautiful kitchen. The time just flew by - La Diosa is a wonderful place to get away from it all. We will definitely be back.

Tout simplement exceptionnel (Simply Exceptional!)

  • 5 of 5

With our 4 children, we came from France to visit Roatan. La Diosa was THE place to stay and we had a marvelous time there : the house and the garden are really wonderful, well equiped, with everything you might dream. The beach is near, and with the kayacks, you're able to snorkel on the beautiful reef in a few moments. Humming birds can be seen while you're taking your shower in the open air. The view is breathtaking.

Beeing located on the east part of Roatan is really an advantage : this part of the island is more authentic, but in less than an hour you can access, if you want, the more touristical places in the island. Not far from the house, beautiful beaches, wonderful dives with "subway water sport" that pick you up right from the dock at La Diosa. Punta Gorda with its Garifuna joyful feats and dances is very near...

And what made our stay really remarkable was the presence of Jorge. He is perfect in his role as caretaker : helpul, efficient, hardworker, always available but never intrusive. And we found he goes far beyond his duty, in the good sense : friendly, giving good advices, taking care of our security in every aspect, always ready to talk about Honduras and Roatan, showing our kids how to cook a traditional recipe. After a few days, though he was always discrete, we had the impression of being at home with a friend nearby.

Jorge is really precious and added greatly to the quality of our stay in La Diosa…

The best summary comes from our kids "when do we come back ?". And though it's very far from France, no doubt we also dream of it!

PS : if you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle, don't hesitate to go far east, on the dirt road, to "La Sirena" restaurant : the view and the beach are amazing, and you've got the feeling of being at the edge of the world. Their fishes are delicious.

Stunning Property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and had a fantastic time! The house and property are even more beautiful than the photos let on! The house and pool area were lovely, as was the view, and the location was perfect for us. The area was quiet and set back off the main roads, and the beachfront was a minute walk away.

Liz, the property manager, was gracious and extremely helpful in coordinating our stay, making herself easily available to answer questions we had. Jorge, the groundskeeper, went above and beyond to make our time comfortable and fun. We really can't recommend this place enough!

Our special vacation place

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year with our family staying at La Diosa. This property is beautiful and it is prettier every year. It is the perfect place for us with large swimming pool and swim toys for our 5 children, plenty of room for them to play inside and outside on the grounds. Unlimited Wifi for all the internet games and social networks.

Our friends live very close by. We have separate areas at the house to entertain them, away from the children watching tv. We love the quiet here, the views are amazing!

Jorge, the caretaker, is on the property 24x7 and is so helpful. Liz, the property manager, is a very short distance from the house. We have always felt well taken care of,everything prepared for our arrival.

We love to return to La Diosa when vacationing or whenever work requires our presence on Roatan... We won't go anywhere else.

The Perfect Vacation Villa

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our fantastic week at La Diosa del Sol. I know this is a cliché, but the photos do not do this house justice. It is absolutely fabulous in every way, north, south, east and west of the Pecos.

From beginning to end, communication was spot on. Liz, the property manager, met us at the airport and escorted us first to do some shopping, and then on to the house. She made everything work seamlessly, from turning the house over to us immaculately clean, complete with cold beer, snacks, local cell phones, and the assurance that if anything were needed, she was just down the road and open to assist us.

The caretaker, George, who lives in a separate house on the estate, was there to help us for whatever might be necessary, 24/7, and did all this without being intrusive. We just cannot say enough about how awesome he is. His English is excellent from living in the U.S. for many years. He knew the best spots on the Politilly reef to snorkel and fish and was a wealth of information about Roatan.

One thing we so appreciated was George's help in getting the kayaks both out and back in to the storage barn, even though we routinely went out twice a day for snorkeling or fishing expeditions. He was always gracious and eager to help. While we were out on the reef, he kept a weather eye out for us, and always met us back at the dock when we returned, ready to help us store the kayaks back in to storage.

But I am saving the best for last, which is the house itself.

There are two master bedrooms, pretty much identical in layout, but each with it's own charm. The upstairs bedroom, on the same level as the great room and veranda, has a queen bed, Jacuzzi tub, and this amazing shower that is "outdoors" like in Bali. The downstairs master has a king bed, no tub, and a "roof" over the outdoor shower and opens out to the pool and entertainment area. There are two more guest rooms, and 2 guest baths, one on each level.

The kitchen is equipped with everything you might need. If it isn't there, it's because you don't need it. Simply amazing.

Wi-Fi works well, though a little slow. No need for streaming video anyway since the house has a DVD collection that would keep you entertained for a year.

The reef in front of the house is amazing. The coral is pristine, there are multitudes of fish, and it's easily accessible from the house by the provided kayaks.

We give this house an unqualified thumbs up and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

La Diosa was amazing; it is our new favorite vacation home!! From the very start we received wonderful service from packing list ideas to assuring emails that wed be met at the airport. Everything was exactly as promised, if not better. The house is fantastic, the pool is beautiful, the grounds are stunning and the view is breathtaking. We were there with our three kids (7-11) and my mother who's 65. All six of us were completely happy with our experience. Perfect place to unwind and enjoy life!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed at this gorgeous villa for 1 week! It has absolutely everything you will need to make your trip to Roaton spectacular! The infinity pool is lovely! My girls used it daily and loved it! We kayaked daily and loved snorkeling so close to the villa. Efran was helpful and so friendly- he even took us out to show us where the best snorkeling spots were. We never, ever felt unsafe. The whole island is beautiful!

We loved the fresh fish at snappers! So delicious! Thank goodness for the large grill provided, we grilled every day. The stars at night--- oh the stars!

We also looked into renting some of the properties close to this villa and they were twice or three times as much and don't have beach access! We truly got an amazing deal and loved our experience at La Diosa!

The owners of the villa were so easy to work with. Thank you so much for letting us use your beautiful villa!

We hope to come back soon! If you're looking for a place to stay in Roaton, look no further, this villa has it all!

Our property manager has lived on the island for many years and is a treasure trove of knowledge about the island. She is always available to recommend the secret attractions known only to the local folks. There is a lovely massage facility within walking distance. This is the most wonderful place on Roatan!
