West Bay Beach house description

Heaven is a home near the beach-in Roatan!

Orchid Breeze is one of seven Caribbean style homes, in the private, Orchid Beach Village 50 ft. from the beach. Our island style home is situated on a 40 ft hillside, set above the homes, on 1/3 acre, 3 minutes to the ocean . Orchid Breeze provides you with panoramic views of the Caribbean sea,unique wildlife,our beautiful tropical gardens of over 300 plants and unforgettable sunsets. Best of all- our unknown fabulous underwater aquarium at waters edge for snorkeling,swimming,kayaking, and chair raft floating in our calm waters.

LOCATION, LOCATION-THE BEST: Orchid Breeze,located midway between famous West Bay Beach and the tourist town of West End. White sandy beaches,turquoise waters and island style bars,restaurants in West Bay Beach to diverse restaurants/bars,nightlife,tourist shopping,and island tours and activities galore in West End,the best of both worlds. During daylight hours, a 3 min water taxi ride or 15 minute walk on the beach to both areas (WEATHER PERMITTING).
We recommend a car for convenience especially during rainy season (September thru December), but if no car desired, our drivers and regular taxis are available (prices negotiable)

Orchid Breeze is your home away from home. Wake up in the morning to the sounds of wildlife in the adjacent treetops. Enjoy your coffee on our spacious main deck or upper deck relaxing on the lounges or swinging in the hammock. Next, take a short walk to the beach on our private pathway for the delight of your trip-snorkeling in the clear waters of Orchid Beach for the colorful coral formations and multitude of sea life-don't forget the camera. Now it's up to the house for lunch from your gourmet kitchen or maybe barbecue some lobster on your gas grill-Yum!

But again the beach calls you, so off to relax the afternoon hours away on your chair float in our calm waters or have a siesta on the lounge chairs/hammock provided for your enjoyment on our deck or at the sandy beach area in front of Orchid Beach at the end of our wood pathway. As the day draws to a close, time for sunset. Such decisions-sand chairs on the dock or the panoramic views from the upper deck with your favorite beverage, the best of both worlds. Balinese lights, tiki torches, Caribbean music in the background, set the mood for your dinner on our main deck. Your evening ends, viewing the stars and the moon on the upper deck with a light cooling breeze-Wow! You are on top of the world. An Orchid Breeze experience, a dream come true.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Orchid Breeze is owned by 2 couples. Eric & Karen Zimmer and Ed & Debbi Herman. We all live in Napa Valley, California. We have been friends for over 20 years and both love the warm tropical weather and beaches. The Zimmer's have 2 boys, both married and 2 granddaughters. The Herman's family consists of 2 happy brown dogs, Bogie & Dixie. Since Eric is the only one retired, he spends more time sunbathing and sleeping in the hammock while the rest of us still work. Karen and Debbi both are employed in the medical field, so their schedule permits frequent visits to Roatan. Ed, working in the busy wine business, comes when he can, but he never misses hearing about all the exciting new changes and new friends around our small island and takes full advantage of the serenity of Orchid Beach when he is visiting . We hope you too, can enjoy some time at Orchid Breeze and see how easy life can be.

                      Why the Owner Chose West Bay Beach:
                      This story actually starts in 1977, when the Zimmer's took their first cruise at the age of 27. They decided then, they wanted a home in the Caribbean. Their search took them thru about 25 islands until one day, Karen met a lady in 2000 who told her to come to 'her island'. Having never heard of Roatan, off they went and 3 days after arrival decided this was 'the right island'. For 5 years the Zimmers vacationed on Roatan at West Bay Beach and invited friends to join them. The Hermans came one year and decided Roatan was also for them and so the plan formulated between the two couples. In 2005, Karen's girlfriend who lived on Roatan showed them the perfect house (Orchid Breeze), the phone call was made to the Hermans and the rest is history. Our love for warm water, sandy beaches, evening sunsets, tropical weather, great food, friendly people, close access to the states and just relaxing on calm clear waters makes Roatan the perfect place for us. We even manage a little snorkeling and diving when we are feeling ambitious. Life just does not get any better than this calm serene life Roatan allows. Orchid Breeze is perfect for us, come see for yourself and you may be living next door!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Location is the best. Orchid Breeze is just a few feet from the ocean via our own pathway but yet private with our surrounding lush extensive tropical gardens. Our home offers 2 large decks for complete relaxation and spectacular views of the ocean during the day and colorful sunsets and star gazing at night. Because Orchid Breeze is located between two hot spots on Roatan (West Bay Beach and West End) you have every activity, restaurant, bar, store available to you in minutes. We have a property manager, housekeeper, cook if needed, babysitter, property manager or owner available at all times, drivers, 24 hr electronic security, security safe for valuables, contacts to all activities on the island so your vacation can be carefree and safe. Just ask. Our motto and maybe yours-'Life just does not get any better'.
