West Bay Beach condo description

You can have your cake and eat it too at this truly oceanfront secluded condo on West Bay Beach. Within 25 feet of water's edge you can watch for the emerald flash in air conditioned comfort while you are mixing a Monkey Lala. Or watch your family come and go on the dive boat next door.

This second home is well equipped for any families’ holiday enjoyment. The master suite with king bed is separated from the second bedroom via wide hallway and second bath. A queen bed and a twin bed make up the second bedroom. There are two well made queen sofa beds in the living area.

Each room has remote controlled air conditioning units that are ceiling mounted along with ceiling fans. The large screened sliders can be opened to let in the breeze off the ocean. This unit is connected to the development’s backup generator that is activated automatically when the power goes out.

Next door to this small condo development of 6 units is a small quiet dive resort and on the other side is a large family estate. This development is just a short walk to the major resorts and restaurants on West Bay Beach yet it is secluded from them via the short point of iron shore. There are only private roads along this part of West Bay Beach providing access to residents and guests only.

There are ample dive resorts, restaurants, bars and shopping within a 10 minute walk of this villa so there is no need to have a car to drive to West End for the night life. Yet, you are protected from the hustle, bustle and noise via the barrier created by the short spit or iron shore with a boardwalk over it.

                        This was our 4th trip to Roatan and we decided to rent a house instead of our usual inexpensive cabin lodging. We contacted the manager late in the evening the night before our arrival and were patiently guided through the rental process and given all the information we needed without a single complaint. When we arrived, we were greeted at the door and even had help carrying all of our belongings inside. There was plenty of room for our 2 families (8 people total: 4 adults & 4 children ages 11-17) to sleep, eat, play card games, and enjoy our week without feeling crowded. The kitchen was well equipped for us to make some meals at home. When we felt like dining out, there were many restaurants within a 5 minute walk. It is a very private location, so if you prefer quite and calm...it's perfect. If you would like a busier vibe, all you have to do is walk around the corner to the main beach of West Bay. The best part of this location is that you can step off the back deck, take a few steps, and you are in a snorkeling paradise! Wifi was not available in the house, however there are several restaurants nearby that allow you to connect when you order something. You could purchase wifi from the restaurant next door at a weekly rate of $35, but we all decided 'disconnecting' was a vacation must. We rented a car for the first 2 days of our stay and used that time to explore some of the island, but it is not necessary to have a car. A water taxi can pick you up from the dock in the backyard if you want to venture to West End for the day, but they do not operate after the sun goes down. There are plenty of activities available close by to keep you occupied - snorkeling, swimming, PaddleBoarding, diving, zipline & fishing charters just to name a few.

                        Recommended for: Pet owners, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, adventure seekers, families with teenagers.

                        We spent 11 days at the Villa Ocean Reef in Roatan, and all the family (2 adults and 2 children) really appreciate our stay there. This is absolulety THE perfect place to be !!!! We dived everyday at Anemona's dive center, with very nice people, and had diners in very good restaurants, all at walking distance of the villa. The house is very confortable, with all the equipments we need. Kevin and Jensen were perfect with us to facilitate our stay. For sure, if we come again one day in Roatan... we'll go back there !!!!!!!!!!!!! One again, many thanks Linda, for all the great contacts we had together !

                        In our opinion, this condo is in the best location on Roatan. Located just around the bend from West Bay Beach, it is quiet, relaxing and picturesque, and yet it is just a few minutes walk - and quite a pleasant walk at that - to restaurants, bars and shopping on West Bay Beach. We snorkeled the reef right in front of the condo everyday, and the snorkeling was phenomenal! The snorkeling was so good that all of the other 'touristy' activities we had thought about doing took a backseat - we will just have to come back again sometime to do those other things. We ate out several meals as it is really quite inexpensive. Some of our favorites were Bite on the Beach - excellent food (with the famous green moray eels in the evening), Beachers for their $15 lobster special which was very tasty, Fosters for an excellent breakfast, and Rudy's in West End for the best smoothies. The condo was exactly as described - very roomy and comfortable with all of the amenities of home. Staying at Villa Ocean Reef was a pleasant process starting with booking and through our entire stay. Everyone was very helpful and prompt with any requests that we had. Jensen made sure that we had a ride anywhere we wished to go. We will definitely return to Roatan and this condo!

                        Manager response: We are all so glad you had a wonderful holiday. I am especially glad to hear about your enjoyment of the snorkeling ~ my sentiments exactly. I did not tire of it after 6 years of living there. And it is good to hear that Rudy's is back with his wonderful smoothies. Please come and stay with us again so you can enjoy the gardens and breathtaking views. Thank you, Linda Kay

                        The location is perfect. Just off the main "tourist beach" on the West end. Nice beach area just in front of the house, with private pool, hammock, and beach chairs. Plenty of restaurants, shopping and convenient mini mart just a short walk down the beach. Wonderful crew to work with booking, transportation and on site assistance!! Will definitely go back. The water is gorgeous and clear!!

                        Villa Ocean Reef is in a great location, within walking distance to West Bay Beach and a quick water taxi ride to West End. The plunge pool is refreshing after a day of snorkeling on the reef just in front of the condo. Jensen was an asset to get us to the South Shore Zip Line, Iguana Farm, La Sirena, and mangrove tour to name a few! We even saw the green flash at sunset from the deck of the pool....awesome! Loved the lemon pepper fish and coconut shrimp at Beacher's, monkey la-las at Bananarama, and cold Salva Vida (3 for $5) on the beach. Swimming with the dolphins at Anthony's Key Resort was a real treat! You must buy fresh fish and cook it on the gas grill.....delicious and so inexpensive! This vacation rental was perfect for our family of four!!

                        I just returned from a nine (9) day stay at Villa Ocean Reef in West Bay on Roatan, Honduras. It was one of our best trips to the island in eight years. The property was accurately described, well maintained, very comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen was well-equipped with everything you’d need. The unit had more than ample linens for your stay. The entire process from booking to check out was easy and the staff super friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We felt safe and secure the entire time. The unit was literally steps from the water and very convenient to restaurants, snorkeling and attractions along West Bay. Next door is Las Rocas Resort, which has a dive shop, restaurant and great happy hour and The Bite on the Beach which has good food and amazing sunsets. The property is located on the quiet end of West Bay which made for a calm and relaxing stay even on cruise ship days and the weekend when it tends to be very busy. My party consisted of three (3) ladies on a girlfriend getaway and we couldn’t have been happier with our stay.

                        Our family of four found the experience to be good to excellent. Our expectations were met and the property was as described. Linda was very helpful throughout. The weather and ocean were beautiful and the local staff were great. We would recommend this for a family vacation, but perhaps it would be quieter at a time other than Easter. The two weeks around Easter are a popular vacation time for the people of Honduras, so the island is busier than usual.

                        Manager response: Thank you for taking the time to comment on the property and your experience. Yes, Semana Santa (week prior to Easter Sunday) is by far the busiest on the island. In many Central American countries, the entire week is a holiday (banks & government offices closed) and Roatan is a choice holiday destination. There are times of the year where there are far fewer people visiting the island and there are destinations on the island where there are fewer people during Semana Santa. Linda Kay

                        Hidden behind a coral outcrop, yet directly on the beach just a few feet from the water, this is in our opinion the very best spot of the entire West Bay Beach: quiet and private while only steps from restaurants and dive shops etc. The apartment itself is exactly as described and was perfect for our family of 4 adults. Except for one screen door, everything was in good working order. There was plenty of filtered water. Booking the apartment was easy and uncomplicated. Linda Kay and Kevin were really pleasant to deal with - in fact, they made the whole transaction feel like a visit with friends. Linda provided all the information we needed, immediately responded to all questions and offered many tips and useful insights. Kevin was at the apartment to welcome us when we arrived (by a taxi he had arranged) and to check whether we had everything we needed, then stopped by a couple of times again to make sure we were fine and to give us some "insider scoop" of the island. Tullio, the guard/caretaker, cleaned the grounds every day, swept the sand from the deck, and put a basin with fresh water by the stairs to wash the sand from the feet before entering. There is also an outdoor shower. One of the three dive shops Linda had recommended was Mayan Divers (a few minutes from the house), managed by Anja from Germany and her husband Liber from Cuba. One of us took a diving course (with Rick who is great) and then did several additional dives with them; they are very safety-conscious and professional and they have small groups (no cruise ship crowd!). We did not rent a car and felt no need to. As for restaurants, we found all quite OK but none outstanding. Fosters has lobster tails; Bite on the Beach is worth a visit at night just to watch the huge moray eels come out from the coral rocks beneath the restaurant. We had a totally relaxing vacation and definitely plan to come again. We can recommend this property without reservation.

                        Manager response: Our team are always so happy when our guests leave with this impression. Thank you and I will pass this on to all involved. Linda Kay

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About: Lived full time on West Bay Beach for 6 years while home schooling son. Left a career in IT Project Management and satellite systems engineering to live my dream on Roatan. While living on the island I developed a botanical bug repellent which is still marketed on the island.

                      Why West Bay Beach:
                      It is secluded but with easy access to amenity without crossing a raised bridge or a mountain ridge to get to amenities and the beach. It is a spacious, quiet and well built home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      It is has tremendous views of the water and is right on West Bay Beach. It has easy access to amenity without the traffic and noise associated with being near it.
