West End house description

Vacation in tropical paradise!
Discover the experience of staying at The Wood House - my piece of paradise! Located in Half Moon Bay, West End's best neighborhood. A nice blend of locals,tourists, and expats make staying here a nice part of the experience. I like the fruit truck stopping in front of the house daily with fresh produce!
Picture Margaritaville and you get an idea of what West End and The Wood House is like. The main drag in West End is dive shops,gift shops,restaurants,bars,food stands,small markets, and water taxis. Your first walk through takes 15 minutes and then longer each time as it's a very social atmosphere so each time you go out it takes a little longer as you're always seeing someone you know and stop to chat.
The Wood House is funky! Not fancy but very function-able. (I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else). Everything works and is maintained. The Wood House is designed to take advantage of the tropical climate Roatan has. Enjoy the heavily planted yard that provides wanted shade during the hot daylight hours. It has to be 15 degrees cooler in the yard once you pass through the gate. Unlike your typical hotel room The wood House is a great place to relax and hang out. Lay in a hammock with a book or take a nap. I find the only time I actually spend inside is to use the bathroom facilities,to cook,and to sleep.
the house consists of three seperate structures all connected by decking. I'd call it Balinese Style. There is a seperate master bedroom cabana, the covered veranda.and the main part of the house which has a full kitchen and full bathroom. The house will occupy four people but two is just perfect!
No car rental is necessary. A short walk from the house brings you to the beach, to a great snorkeling entry spot,and to all that West End has to offer. taxis are readily available.
The Wood house has a 'Bug-Slayer System which uses a natural insecticide to control sand flies and mosquitos.
Freshly varnished and maintained May 2014
ENJOY!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: I've been a painting contractor most of my adult life. In 1988 I took my first trip to Roatan for a scuba diving trip. Years later when looking for a retirement home in the Carribean I decided that Roatan would be the place. I loved the third world feeling. I wanted a more simplistic life and found it.

                  Why the Owner Chose West End:
                  The Wood House in my prejudiced opinion has the very best location in West End. Accessible to everywhere by taking a short walk.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  When staying at The Wood House most of your time is spent outside relaxing under the covered verandah. It's a unique house that offers me all I want and need. To me there is a magical vibe to the house. It's my dream come true!
