Property description

Casa Cowee, a rustic recently renovated island-style home on a lush private 1 acre estate, nestled in the warm, friendly community of Sandy Bay, offers dramatic million dollar views of the Caribbean and richly varied living spaces – a spacious Main House with master bedroom with new king bed and loft with queen bed or two single beds and large covered Sunset Deck where friends meet for breakfast and evening cocktails. Casa Cowee's 200-foot swimming dock (occasionally enjoyed by our neighbors) and tranquil waterfront provide unlimited fishing, snorkeling (reef in front of property), swimming, diving, dolphin-watching, and the opportunity to explore the colorful marine life in the Sandy Bay/West End Marine Reserve.
We have added two new kayaks for your enjoyment and provide you with snorkelling equipment for your stay. So you can create a dream vacation package by pre-booking tours, snorkelling and fishing trips.
Located on our beach just a couple of minutes walk is the Blue Bahia Beach Restaurant, Tranquil Seas Bar and restaurant, Fragapini bar/ restaurant at the Myoka Lodge and several local good eats. For diving Octopus Dive School, Tranquil Seas and Anthony's Key.
This unique beachfront plus rain forest property is just a short 10 min. drive to West End Village for dining, shopping and great evening entertainment. On Roatan fun is had by all residents and tourists alike.

The home is surrounded by expansive decks offering gracious outdoor living with lush tropical landscaping and exquisite sunset views. There is a charcoal BBQ on the deck.
For sleeping there is a large private Master Bedroom Pod with a new king bed and a large loft in the main living pod with a new queen bed. A single can be added upon request.
We have just added another full suite to Casa Cowee to cater to couples wanting separate sleeping/ bath quarters. This is a stunning sunny unit overlooking the water with it's own small kitchen, 3 pc bath and living space with a queen bed. It has it's own private deck. It can be added to the rental of the main house for $75.00 per night. Pictured in the last three photos on the listing

We invite you to enjoy our family home. Come live in an island paradise – relax on your private verandah overlooking the deep blue Caribbean Sea, cooled by trade winds and surrounded by the fragrance of beautiful tropical flowers.

Beautiful wood floors. Kitchen with new appliances. Steps from front deck directly on the beach. This house is rented separately but of course can be included in the Main House rental upon request.

Car: Not Necessary

Great snorkelling and diving trips with the Octupus and Tranquil Seas dive operations just a 2 min walk down the beach. Stunning sites on the second largest coral reef in the world. There are two single kayaks and snorkelling equipment included in your rental. Some of the best bonefishing in the Caribbean is right down the beach from Casa Cowee and deep sea fishing. Our local fisherman Herbie has agreed to take care of our guests fishing trips. All you have to do is go down to our dock. There are some comments about our dock being over used by locals because it is such a great swimming dock. We have had to deal with the excessive use and it is no longer an issue.

There are four restaurants 1-2 minutes walk down the beach and two bars and many delicious local food restaurants. Our property manager can arrange meals to be brought in. There is a full medical clinic in a two minute walk including a recompression chamber.

Casual West End a 10 minute taxi ride away is loaded with restaurants, bars and shops. West Bay is the big beach with the large resorts and condos. Great for a visit if you want to people watch, parasail or just a change from tranquil Sandy Bay.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: The original owners Miss Marcia and her husband were on a road trip in the 70's that took them from their Aspen home down through the rugged backroads of Central America, they discovered the lovely island of Roatan. Captivated by its lush tropical foliage on a hilly terrain and , crystal clear waters – the friendly, generous spirit of the locals – they bought a pristine property down the beach from what was then the only major dive operation on the island – Anthony's Key Resort. That’s how the history of “Casa Cowee” was written. Miss Marcia passed the property on to her family and two years ago I visited and fell under it's spell. I am a Canadian from southern Ontario and fell in love with the Isle of Roatan, especially warm and natural Sandy Bay. You are part of a community here not a resort. So the next chapter in the history of Casa Cowee has begun. I know you will fall under it's spell also. Now that I have spent a good portion of a year here I know that Casa Cowee is totally unique. It is so easy to meet people, not just expats but islanders. I now have two guests who are back on the island with their families for extended stays so their kids get exposure to the real world outside of the bubble most of us live in. The kids are loving it with all their new friends, being part of the island community.

Why Sandy Bay:
There is no better place on Sandy Bay proper for 180 degree vista of the breathtaking waters and reef and dolphins. You are high off the beach giving you total privacy and the deck is the most popular spot for the sunset happy hours. You also have one acre of lush property surrounding you for privacy and lots of fruit trees such as lemon, lime, bananas, coconut, jack fruit, mango etc. Sandy Bay is a large area. But Casa Cowee is located on a sleepy stretch of sand that includes Anthony's Key, Myoka Lodge, the Blue Bahia and Tranquil Seas mini dive resorts. They are just a couple of minutes walk down the beach and all have restaurants and bars. Then for that special evening The Myoka Lodge on our beach also has a stunning bar and great food for happy hours and views over their infinity pool. So no need to go further than our own little friendly community. But if there is a need to step it up a pace the West End is just a 10 min. taxi ride away. This is a dive hub along with, great restaurants, bars and night clubs. The nice thing about Roatan is that everyone on the island parties together, so a great island experience.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
What Casa Cowee is – and is not ... Casa Cowee is not a 'plug and play' unit in a gated community. It is our cherished family home, designed by a renowned local architect who was a dear friend of the original owners – and who put his passion for the island into every facet of Casa Cowee’s signature design. One of the great beauties of Roatan and the Sandy Bay location is during the 'low' season you enjoy reduced rates but are there during their flowering and fruit season. We have a multitude of fruit trees on our property you can enjoy. I found that the weather is great and the temperature the same year round. Sandy Bay is a residential area so the same action year round. Much unlike the tourist areas of West Bay and West End.
