First Bight house description

Far Tortuga is located mid-island on the south side of Roatan approximately 20 minutes from the airport and 10-15 minutes from shopping and restaurants in French Harbour. It is a secluded, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, oceanfront home, sleeps 7 in the bedrooms and up to 2 on the sofa bed comfortably ,is in the small community known as First Bight.

The house, finished in 1994, features a modern,granite countertop, fully-equipped kitchen with all conveniences: gas cook top, wall oven, disposal, dishwasher, microwave, coffee-grinder and coffee-maker, toaster oven, food processor, blender, etc. The tiled great room, which encompasses the living room, kitchen, and dining area, is large and airy and feels even more spacious because of the stunning vaulted wood cupola ceiling and the massive wood French doors that line the sides of the room facing the ocean. These doors all open to catch the ocean breezes and beckon to visitors to barbeque on the gas grill or just relax and watch the sunset from the over 2000 square feet of decks and gazebos that wrap-around the exterior of the house.In February 2008 we completed construction of an infinity pool that overlooks the ocean and the stone patios and benches surrounding it are perfect for sunbathing. The living room contains an entertainment center complete with DVD player and cable TV (bring your favorite DVDs or rent them on island). We also have a wireless iPod and CD player.

All three bedrooms possess vaulted ceilings, island style louvered windows, ceiling and floor fans, hardwood floors, luxury linens, and the two largest bedrooms open via French doors onto their own ocean view decks. Our master bedroom is very privately situated in its own wing and includes a queen bed with a walk-in closet, a huge master bathroom with his and hers vanity sinks and a walk-in shower. The other two bedrooms share a full bath with tub/shower on the opposite side of the house. One room contains a bunkbed and an extra long twin and the other bedroom has a queen bed and another huge walk-in closet. There is a very comfortable sofabed in the living room and a queen-size aero-bed if you want to sleep under the stars in one of the gazebos.

On the lower level of the home there are two separate garages which house a large washer and dryer for guest use. There is ample space for parking vehicles either in or outside of both garages.

The turquoise waters of the Caribbean are literally steps away from the house across the Ironshore. In addition, there is always easy access through the community dock a short walk away in First Bight or at the community beach a few doors down from the house. A two person kayak and 2 single kayaks are also available for your pleasure.

Some of the best wall diving on Roatan is a short swim or kayak in front of this house where the snorkeling is also excellent. Snorkeling and dive equipment rentals are a few minutes drive away, and there are many dive operators to choose from on the island.

For less adventurous guests, we suggest lazing in the pool or on the covered porches watching for dolphins or enjoying the many hummingbirds that visit the feeders and hibiscus blooms surrounding the decks. Other wildlife to watch for include: hermit crabs, land crabs, geckos, iguanas, and the lizards known on the island as 'Monkey La-las'. These lizards are quite tame and enjoy offerings of tropical fruit.

On arrival at Roatan Airport Kevin and Claire, our Property Managers, will be on hand to help you with picking up your rental vehicle (which we highly recommend in order for you to make the most of your stay) and then escort you to the house.

First night snacks and first morning breakfast items will be provided along with a bottle of chilled white wine for your enjoyment!

Kevin and Claire will be on hand throughout your stay to provide advice and assistance so that your vacation will be hassle free and will be easy to contact on the cell phone that is available for your use whilst on the island.

Come stay at Far Tortuga - we know that you'll be glad you did!
