Look No Further! Why be steps or minutes from the beach when you can be right on the sand? St. Mac's is a traditional, Caribbean style stand alone villa (3 bedroom Upper Level and 2 one bedroom apartments) with loads of charm, and a spacious open floor plan. The Lower Level one bedroom apartment fronts the beach and cozy one bedroom garden apartment is nestled behind--right on the sand. Remodeled and updated in 2009, the well stocked gourmet kitchen features granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher in Beachfront unit. All the modern conveniences, plus an incredible Ocean Soundtrack--cooking with a view! The large dining area will be a perfect place to serve your fresh local fish, and outside your private Beachfront Garden awaits, lined with palm trees and lounge chairs. Float, swim, dive and snorkel to your heart's content in the clear, warm Caribbean waters that are your front yard. The very best reef for snorkeling is a few short paddles away!
Let the sound of waves lull you to sleep in the comfy King bedroom, easily converted into two twin beds if you wish. Soft pillows and nice sheets add to the total sleeping experience. You can choose to sleep either in fan cooled or Air conditioned comfort. The beachfront apartment has sliding doors that open out onto a private garden patio, with table and chairs ideal for dining al fresco under the stars. You may also choose lounging in your hammock, just lazily reading and dozing. The calendar shown here is for this Beachfront Apartment; please contact us for rear Garden apartment availability.
Brand new comfy furniture is in your spacious, open living/dining area, and all your favorite Satellite TV channnels, a DVD player and WiFi are available so you don't have to miss a thing (unless you want to!). Curl up with a good book or your computer in the special reading area by the picture window.
The cozy rear garden apartment is ideal for a couple, and has a lovely outdoor deck area with table and chairs, or you can lounge in the villa's Beachfront palm garden. Your well equipped kitchen has granite counters and all the modern conveniences on a smaller scale. The comfortable King bed can also be converted into two twin beds, and there is air conditioning for your sleeping pleasure. Satellite TV with all the channels, a DVD player, and WiFi will help keep you busy if you can stay awake after a day of fun in the sun!
24 hour Security is on the grounds, a full time landscaper and twice weekly Housekeeping is also included, as is purified water. Provisions can be gotten down the street at the local Deli at West Bay Mall (not really a 'Mall'!), and there is good local food, a popular coffee shop, and an intimate Sushi bar. Many other dining options are steps away, and many great dive shops (we love Bananarama) are located nearby. Don't miss the weekly visits of the man selling local fresh seafood when he comes to St. Mac's! The villa is located right next door to Infinity Bay Condominiums, with it's popular Sports Bar, pool, and restaurant. Taxi boats ($5 each way) can take you from the dock right in front of the villa to funky West End with its happening restaurants and night life, and regular taxis are readily available to drive you back home. Enjoy World Class snorkeling and diving just steps down the beach!
St. Mac's is the Oceanfront part of West Bay Village, a small private enclave of Caribbean style homes that have retained their Caribbean character in a Concrete CondoWorld. If you are looking for charm and True Beachfront, Look No Further!

About the owner: St. Mac's Beachfront Villa is owned by two diving couples who have a longtime love affair with Roatan, and West Bay Beach. We are lucky enough to live in Lake Tahoe in the summer, and Roatan is Home as often as we can make it down here. St. Mac's is a great place for family gatherings! Nothing says relaxation like a good book, the sound of waves in the background, a dip in the warm waters of the Caribbean, and a beautiful sunset....
Why the Owner Chose West Bay Beach: We started coming to Roatan 25 years ago, back in the Wild West days before there were real roads out to West Bay (and condos). An ongoing love affair started with West Bay Beach (back then it was all called West End), and St. Mac's was always the best house on the best beach--a true traditional Caribbean style charmer. Time has passed, and we are thrilled to be co-owners with another couple who feel the same way we do! We've been all over the world searching for the perfect white sand beach with world class diving and snorkeling, and crystal clear warm water....it is here at West Bay Beach and St Mac's. Despite West Bay's growth and new concrete condo construction, St. Mac's is STILL the best house on the best beach, just with more dining options!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Why be 'steps to the ocean' or a '7 minute walk' to West Bay Beach? Be True Beachfront, right on the sand! This is the charming yellow house many people stop to take pictures of while walking down the beach. 24 hour Security Guards on site, plenty of parking, and a private Beachfront garden with swaying palms, lounge chairs, hammocks, and beautiful sunsets provided!
