Caribe Pointe house description

Away from the hustle and bustle, you will very quickly settle into 'island mode' upon your first views of our tropical paradise...Balsam Rock Retreat.

This Caribbean style home has many unique features. The house welcomes you to the upper level via a bridge into the great room, which encompasses the kitchen, dining and living area, the 16 foot wood vaulted ceiling opens to the panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea and the sheltered cove of Caribe Bite. Also on this floor you have a bedroom with a king bed and a full bathroom. You’ll spend most of your time outside on the wrap around verandas, relaxing in a hammock, swing or just lounging in a chair that overlooks the Blue Lagoon and the Caribbean Sea, The breeze is intoxicating!!! Fill the hummingbird feeder and try and count how many show up for a free meal.

The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances, an island for prep work, breakfast bar, and a great conversation area. Living room furniture is comfortable and has DirecTV satellite television (including HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, TMC, and full sports package) and a Blu-Ray player with a growing library of movies.

The second floor contains the master bedroom (king size bed) and bathroom. Two additional bedrooms (one queen bed with a twin and the other room has 1 queen bed). Step out the door from either the master bedroom or main bathroom onto the wrap around veranda and relax by the brand new infinity edge pool looking out at the blue waters. New washer and dryer are located on this floor. All bedrooms are equipped with new air conditioners and the main floor is central air, however with the breezes, you’ll rarely need to use the A/C, but it is a great comfort on those few breeze-less days!

The home includes a full apartment featuring a full size eat-in kitchen, living area with satellite television, full bath, and private bedroom with 2 full size beds.

Find your own little hideaway through the gardens to the overlook bench or step down to the private beach and dock where you can swim, kayak, snorkel, or fish. An outside shower is there to wash the saltwater off. There is a large sundeck where you can either sun bath or stargaze, looking up at night, you can’t help but see the Milky Way.

Call for a water taxi and Clyde might be the one to pick you up at the dock, show you around. East End Divers will pick you up at the dock too and take you to the most magnificent dive sites. Experience the drop off as never before and try a drift dive. No experience, No problem, they are authorized certified trainers.

Franklin, our property manager will greet you at the airport, where he will assist you in getting a rental car. He will then show you where you can stop and pick up groceries. Any questions, ask Franklin he is native to the island and will be available for tours.

Jorge is our watchy man, and stays on the property to assist you with things around the home.
Alberta, Jorge’s wife, is the cleaning lady, and for a small price will clean during the week for you.

You will find that Roatan is beautiful, charming and a safe place to visit. Iguana farms, canopy tours, horseback riding, tropical gardens, zoos, beaches, shopping and friendly islanders are some of the things you will fall in love with here in Roatan.

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About: Mike and I grew up going to the Jersey Shore for family vacations, when we were on our honeymoon, 30 years ago, we went to Bermuda, and it was there where we fell in love with the crystal blue water. When we could we would vacation in the Islands, (St John, St Thomas, St Lucia, Hawaii and Florida Keys) all of which have a beauty of their own. We then discovered Roatan, and fell in love with the island, the people and the Caribbean lifestyle. It was everything which we were hoping to find.

                  Why Caribe Pointe:
                  Mike had been looking at this particular house for quite a while. Our list of wants when purchasing a house was location, it needed to be far enough away from crowds, yet not too far from the stores. It needed a view where every window or veranda was looking at something different. This house has a southern exposure, the tropical breeze comes from that direction and you also do not get the direct sunrise or the direct sunsets, but can view them comfortably to your left or right. We wanted to have a dock for boating, kayaking, and fishing, and a beach would be great...this home met all these needs except a beach, so we did what any American would do...we built our own (lol)! Our hopes for our home would be for anyone staying here to have a great time relaxing and making memories and that they would leave here rejuvenated, in heart, mind and soul..

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Freedom to do what you desire at your fingertips, relax, swim in the pool, kayaking, snorkeling, entertain guests, it is like being at home in the states with all the amenities (well almost!) until you look out at the beautiful view and realize what a special place you are staying. We like to watch the sun rise, sunset, stargaze and sleep on the veranda, you feel like you are in a tree house. And the breezes are intoxicating!!!!
