Looking for high-end accommodations in West End? Look no further—our beachfront villa on Half Moon Bay offers the authentic Roatán experience, plus all the amenities you’d expect from an upscale resort.
We’ve designed each room to be a retreat in itself. The villa boasts four spacious bedrooms, three of which have in-suite bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms have views of the Caribbean, and all four have their own flat-screen TVs. The master bedroom is especially luxurious, with vaulted hardwood ceilings and floors and a private balcony that looks out over both Half Moon Bay and the Caribbean. Each room is decorated in an eco-spa style, giving the villa a sense of tranquility and comfort.
Outside, you’ll find a private infinity-edge plunge pool, which overlooks the ocean. Coupled with the partially covered patio and resort-caliber furnishings, it’s the perfect place to kick back and relax.
In addition to all this, the villa features dual-zone AC, a brand new water filtration system, a high-end kitchen with granite and stainless steel accents, plush linens, an infrared BBQ, and high speed Wi-Fi. We also provide a full concierge service through our local property manager, and our private chef is available upon request.
For travelers who want an authentic Roatán experience, the villa couldn’t be better situated. West End is known as more of a neighborhood than a resort town, and you’ll find fewer tourists here than you would in West Bay. Even so, there are plenty of activities within a half hour of the villa, including dolphin encounters, ziplining, horseback riding, scuba diving, and golfing, to name a few. You can even visit an iguana farm!
You don’t have to go far to snorkel—hop in the water right off the villa, and you’ll be swimming in the world’s second-largest barrier reef. Approximately 96% of all Caribbean marine life is found here, and you’re likely to encounter sea turtles, lionfish, lobsters, and more.
It’s rare to find such luxury in West End. Get in touch with us to book your dates today!

Great snorkeling right from the beach
Great snorkeling right from the beach
We recently stayed here for a week with two other couples. The location is certainly convenient to local restaurants and the water taxi to West Bay. The house was comfortable and well planned. They offered a variety of security measures, so any fears about safety can be put to rest. The snorkeling right from the beach beside the villa in Half Moon Bay was wonderful and shouldn’t be missed. The villa was very nice, although it could use some cushions on the porch for sitting comfortably any length of time. Make sure you hire Susan one night to cook for your group. She has a wonderful personality and prepared a delicious feast for our group. In hindsight, I would make my own reservations for tours we wanted to take as we were disappointed with the concierge service. Also, there is now a large inflatable water feature for children right beside the villa. This wasn’t a problem, but it was not something we expected from the photos.

Owner response: I am glad you enjoyed our villa so much, and thanks for the feedback. We've added a new set of cushions to all the chairs and loungers on the porch. The water feature is a pool slide kind of thing, great fun for kids, and as said above, they are a good neighbor. All of our photos were taken before they set up shop.

My wife and I had seen a show on HGTV's International House Hunters that featured Coral Vistas. After our jaws hit the floor, we taped it to show to our usual Mexico travel buddies. The seven of us have been renting houses in Playa del Carmen for 18 years, but it has lost its' luster. Too big, too expensive, and now full of American fast food places. We pined for the old Playa of simpler days with local charm and authenticity. After getting together and watching the tape everyone wanted to go there. So, we looked it up on the internet, and the descriptions and pictures we found, only convinced us more that we needed to make it this winter's escape from Minnesota. The seven of us spent a fabulous week at the Half Moon Bay House, old Playa rediscovered, only better! We were rewarded by a better than expected experience. Roatan is a beautiful, laid back island with beautiful beaches and extremely friendly people. The house surpassed our highest expectations. It was very clean and wonderfully decorated with fabulous views in all directions. Someone from the agency that manages these properties met us when we arrived and filled us in on all the great things there are to do on the island. Anytime we had a problem or a question, help was just a phone call to the office and a few minutes away. Most everything we wanted to do was literally just steps from the house. Great affordable restaurants, bars and shops, and a spectacular beach. We didn't do as many things as we initially thought we would, because sitting on the front patio by the pool with balmy breezes, great views, a cool drink, conversation or a good book was so relaxing that it was difficult to budge us. One of the greatest experiences we had was to hire a cook ( Susan ), and have her cook us an island dinner at the house. Indescribable! We can all pack in a good size meal, but we still had enough leftovers for another meal. Another must, is to hire a boat with crew, which is very easy to do, and go by sea around about a third of the island to a wonderful and quirky restaurant called the "Hole in the Wall". Would you enjoy all the Lobster tail and barbeque you can eat for $25.00? We sure did! Oh, and the best for last. There is not one single American fast food joint in West End! We are having a Roatan group reunion this weekend, and there is no doubt that we all want to go back next winter, only for two weeks this time.

In January, we stayed a week at the Half Moon Bay House. My wife and I had probably the best vacation we have had in several years. The house, staff and location were incredible. The house was well-kept, offered wonderful views, had a great layout. - Super kitchen! The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Everything was explained in detail when we got there and all arrangements made when we left. We could not have asked for more. We had stopped in Roatan on a cruise a few years before and loved it so we decide to go back for a week. We wanted to rent a house but were not sure where the best location would be. After roaming around Roatan for a week, we came to the conclusion that there was no other location better suited for us. Everybody talked about West Beach, so we took a water taxi over. After 2 hours and a zillion cruise ship people, we could not wait to get back to the beautiful, quaint, laid-back island style of Half Moon Bay. Snorkeling, relaxing on the beach - right out our door! Walking, shopping, great restaurants - right out our door! We had no need for a taxi. Also, the people of Roatan were wonderful. We felt we could go anywhere at anytime. In short, we won't hesitate to go back again......hopefully soon.

We stayed at the end of the low season in Nov/Dec and had a great time. What more can you ask for in a property? It had its own private, dipping pool with panoramic ocean bay views. The AC worked great and the cooking facilities were more than adequate. I would recommend either using the free grocery stocking service or have the taxi driver stop at one of the mega supers near the airport to stock up on the way. Taxi rides were pricey at $20 each way, especially if you are only using them for shopping. The climate was very mild, particularly at night. It was not that stuffy Caribbean humidity that we are used to. We took the free kayaks out one morning that required a bit of muscle dropping them into the water and that might have been the most difficult thing we did the whole trip. Snorkeling was okay out front although we heard that there was good stuff to see near the dock of the submarine. We wanted to do the sub, but the gentleman was out of town. We zip lined twice including my 4 year old daughter who was giddy with each line and couldn't wait to go again. The trip to the Cayos Cochinos was bit of a bust as the boat broke down and we were stranded for a while, but my daughter made friends with the locals. The best local snorkeling was at the very south end of West Bay Beach on a day that the cruise ships are not in town. It was an easy H20 taxi ride about $3 one way per person. The Roatan Life management company was great in arranging tours and also being available for any inconveniences. Our car rental broke down and they helped get it fixed fairly quickly. As to the dining, the noodle house was a great deal and we liked the Argentinean restaurant. We also ate at the Lighthouse restaurant, which is literally behind the villa. I loved talking with the owners and family, but I did not love the fact that I got violently ill about 2-3 hours after dining there. Perhaps the worst case of food poisoning that I ever had. All of us ate there, but I was the only one who ate the Conch soup (yes, I have had it several times before across the Caribbean). I was fine in the morning and went to the Cayos without incident, so it was clearly food poisoning. Overall, I thought that Roatan was relatively quiet and cheap compared to much of the Eastern Caribbean that we have visited. Because of the cruise ships, there are tons of things to do. If you avoid the cruise ship crowds, you will be at peace. We can't wait to come back again!

5 of us rented the whole house for one week. It was paradise. Very convenient to shops, restaurants, dive boat. Short walk to dive shop and boat. Fabulous fun sitting in calm bay water sipping beer. Close to town but still very private and quiet. Loved the veranda and infinity pool. Liz (hostess) was wonderful. You should definitely arrange to have local cook prepare dinner in the villa at least one night -- and eat leftovers for lunch next day. We went to local grocery store and bought breakfast/lunch foods but ate dinner out. Enjoyed fresh fruit purchased daily from local truck vendors. Diving was great -- fabulous, huge sponges and good visibility!!! Enjoyed kayaking in bay. Glass bottom boat was fun for non-diver in our group. House was stocked with plenty of books. Local cat hung with us all week and entertained us with his lizard hunting skills. I will definitely go back.

Thank you so much for renting us your house. We had an amazing time! The house was very comfortable and the views were to die for. We had one rough night when the upstairs AC unit broke down, but it was fixed within a couple hours. Everything was perfect. Liz is a doll and was very helpful. Tex was the best! He took us on an island tour and set up some great snorkeling for us with his friend, Richard. The Blue Channel!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!! We can't wait to get back to Roatan someday and would rent your house again in a blink. The weather was perfect everyday (90 degrees & 85 degree water)and we came home refreshed and feeling good. I lost 6lbs and my husband lost 4lbs just from all the activity and living on fish, rice and vegetables. Wonderful trip! Thanks again!

My family and I rented one of your villas on Half Moon Bay in the beginning of August and we had a great time. We explored a large portion of the island on our own with a rental vehicle and visited several very unique places. We enjoyed talking with the local people and never found there to be any problems or issues. We saw several road blocks but by showing our passport and rental car information, the police were very polite and we never had any reason for concern. We felt very safe and never felt that there was any type of "unrest" on the island. Actually, it was quite to the contrary. We learned that the news media in the US perhaps had not fully reported all the facts or the complete story regarding the changes in the local government. We wouldn't have any problem recommending travel to Roatan. We would return without hesitation. This was the second visit to Roatan for me and my husband, and a first visit for the rest of our family. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip, and again, you all did a great job for us. We hope this helps. It would be a shame if people would hesitate visiting Roatan due to misinformation.

This was one of the best vacations we have ever taken. With all the media coverage about Honduras, the island was uneffected and everyone was so very nice. The house is unbelieveable. Mike Carter was there to greet us when we arrived and was very nice and inforamtive. The resturants in West End were excellent. We also cooked in the house.The store in Coxen hole and the new grocery store in French Harbour was like Albertsons, very american friendly. We snorkeled a few places around the island, and it was good, but the best was right out front of the house in Halfmoon Bay. The fish were everywhere and the water was perfect. The guys went fishing and caught us dinner. They had a wonderful time, one more thing to cross off the "Bucket List" of life. Our van driver and BFF Capitan Whitsell James took excellent care of us. We highly recommend calling him if you stay on the island and want someone to take you shopping, a tour of the island, snorkeling spots, he is the best. We met him captaining a catamaran a yeay ago on a shorkeling trip we took when we were on a cruise and fell in love with hin and the island and decided to return for 2 weeks!! The power went out and the generator crashed the middle of our 2nd week, It was not fixed by the time we went home, but island power did finally come on and saved us, we only had 1 bad, hot, night with no power. That was not too bad, Mike Carter brought us an ice chest for our food and he was excellent in trying to make it as comfortable as possible. We thank him for all his efforts. Other than that hickup, the house was perfect, the island and it's locals were perfect, the food was perfect, (Lighthouse next door is the bomb) Myrna, on the beach at the enterance of the house, gives a great massage...My husband had 2 in 2 weeks! We had 6 people in the house and it was very comfortable...best beds ever! We can't wait to return...

After having stayed for a week in May of 2008, I returned to this beautiful home once again this year and am so happy I did. This home feels like a home away from home, only so much more luxurious! The amenities are impressive, and I love the fact I can access high speed internet so I can keep my business going while spending time in paradise going scuba diving and lounging next to the small pool located right on the veranda which overlooks the ocean. The house is right on the ocean, with views from every window of the home. You could only get comparable views by staying on a boat! I loved being so near the village with such easy access to the beach and street vendors selling fresh vegetables and fruit. The scuba diving is superb in this area, and enjoyed seeing so much sea life! I will be back again!

About the owner: Click on the satellite button and plus sign (zoom in). In the center of the photo you can see the orange, rectangular roofs of the five Coral Vista Villas. Ours is the one on the right, just steps from Half Moon Bay beach. The cluster of buildings to the bottom and along the water is West End Village. Here you will find everything from restaurants to convenience stores to dive shops to souvenirs and night life. Above the Villas is Half Moon Bay. As you can see, the water is so clear you can almost spot the fish on the reef! From our home you can walk out onto the beach and slip into the Bay for a swim, a snorkel, a shore dive or even take the two sea kayaks out for a leisurely paddle up or down the coast line.
Why the Owner Chose West End:
We purchased Half Moon Bay House after staying in one of the sister villas with our four children in March of 2011. During that trip, we explored the island, did a bunch of diving, hit the zip lines and generally decompressed. It became apparent over the week that Roatán was an island on the cusp - in the process of being 'discovered' but far from over developed and commercialized - and West End was a truly unique and frankly, cool place from which to experience all that Roatán has to offer. We had such a great time, we wanted to own a part of it and, hopefully, share that with you and guests from around the world.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Coral Vista 1 is truly unique. It is the only high-end home on the beach and the water in West End.
