West Bay Beach house description

Life doesn’t get any better than experiencing the breathtaking views and turquoise waters of Roatan at the Pink Orchid!

OVERVIEW:
The Pink Orchid is one of seven Caribbean style homes located in the cozy community of Orchid Beach Village. Situated high on a scenic bluff with views in every direction, the home overlooks the crystal clear protected waters of the largest coral reef in the northern hemisphere (surpassed only by the great barrier reef in Australia)...a diver's paradise! Enjoy panoramic views of island wildlife, tropical foliage and up-close sunsets right off a private deck with spectacular vistas of the ocean. The three bedrooms each with its own private attached bathroom makes this an affordable option for a large family or 3-4 couples to share the cost. From its traditional Caribbean hardwood and tiled floors to its vaulted ceilings and floor-to ceiling windows, you can enjoy island living at its best. Whether you are floating on your favorite water mattress on the calm waters, snorkeling off the dock to take in the abundant sea life, relaxing in the sandy waist-deep waters, lounging with a good read in the hammock, or soaking in the sun on the deck lounges jutting over the tranquil waters...this place has it all! The average annual temperature on Roatan is 85 degrees F/29 degrees C so you can wear your shorts day and night. Roatan is a top diving and snorkeling destination with hundreds of dive sites, many of them world class, due to the 37 miles of coral reef that runs along the north coast of the island.

LOCATION:
The Pink Orchid is located halfway between the town of West End and one of the world’s ten most beautiful beaches – West Bay Beach. West End is a unique village (think Margaritaville) where the streets are sand and reminiscent of 40 years ago -- a true Caribbean experience. West Bay Beach is the most pristine beach on the island surrounded by tropical vegetation and fresh air outdoor restaurants in keeping with the island culture. Enjoy the best of both worlds with West Bay's upscale beach life including endless white sand, azure waters, beachfront restaurants and bars, gift shops, and water sport activities of all kinds or West End's unique Caribbean style where you can buy fruits and vegetables off the back of a truck, rent mopeds, arrange for your scuba adventure at the many dive shops, shop in their plentiful tourist markets, or enjoy a cool Salva Vida, the local Honduran beer. It’s only a 3-minute water taxi ride to either destination from the private dock or a 15-minute walk on the beach. No need to drive.

AMENITIES:
Orchid Beach Village has a 24-hour security system onsite. The kitchen is equipped with a full-sized refrigerator, four burner stove & oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, waffle maker and electric mixer for all your cooking needs. The full service for twelve of Dansk Caribe dishes and many cooking and serving dishes make this the perfect place for entertaining. If the preference is to have someone do the cooking during your stay on the island, a local cook can come and prepare some or all of the meals to your liking. There are ceiling fans in every room, a back-up solar system for energy efficiency, TV and DVD in living room, wireless Internet, and a stainless steel outdoor barbecue grill and picnic table. Bottled water is provided for your drinking needs and the ultraviolet water purification system makes tap water safe. Each room has a separately controlled air conditioner. This is a non-smoking home.

EASY TO GET TO:
Roatan is easier to get to than many Caribbean destinations. The Roatan airport has non-stop flights from Newark, Houston, Atlanta, and Miami on Continental, Delta, and Taca. There are also frequent flights from San Pedro Sula on mainland Honduras, and direct charters from Toronto, Canada, Milan, Italy (on Alitalia Euroair) and from Madrid, Spain. It is the owner's goal to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible. They hope you will come and enjoy your stay at Orchid Beach on this diverse and beautiful island!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: The owners, Al and Pam Kuck, live in northeastern Wisconsin in the United States. Al is an animal geneticist for one of the largest cattle breeding organizations in the country and Pam is an educational consultant working with large metropolitan school districts and state departments of education around the country. They have three grown daughters, and two new grandchildren who live worlds apart in Wisconsin and Australia. The family gathers annually in Roatan for reunions. They have enjoyed boating and water skiing all their lives and especially love the warm weather of the island during Wisconsin winters.

                  Why the Owner Chose West Bay Beach:
                  The Kucks researched the many Caribbean Islands and found Roatan to be one of the most beautiful. It's lush tropical vegetation, white sand beaches, turquoise blue waters, sweet unaffected towns and pleasant local people made it a natural choice for them to purchase their home. The location of the Pink Orchid within walking distance from West Bay Beach (one of the world's ten top most beautiful beaches) and West End (a diver's paradise) was important to them. There is something in the air on Roatan that makes visits unforgettable and draws one back again and again...perhaps the old-world charm of a time long forgotten when life was slow, lazy, and peaceful was what attracted them to this tropical oasis. The addition of the $67M new Mahogany Bay Cruise terminal and the new Black Pearl 9-Hole Golf Course promise the island will continue to thrive and prosper. Al & Pam want to share their home when not in use so that you too can experience the lure of this unforgettable island paradise.
