West Bay Beach house description

'Casa Del Mar at Orchid beach' is a well constructed modern home located in the Orchid Beach development, which is in walking distance of both the coveted West Bay beach and West End. Walk out the spacious deck and down the steps to a private, well maintained beach with a dock with swim platform and one of the top rated coral reefs in the world. The Island-style home has high ceilings with wood floors throughout, fully stocked kitchen with granite-tiled countertops, full laundry room, and two bedrooms and bathrooms that were designed for privacy. Corian countertop and spa bathtub with separate shower and huge closet in the master suite with king size bed, and Queen size second bed and full bath make it a very comfortable home for up to 4 guests. All linens provided. The tropical land surrounding the house has lime, papaya, banana, and guava trees as well as bougainvillea. It is also home to many kinds of birds and Iguanas. The pristine waters with reef make this a nature lovers paradise!

Travel to Roatan: Fly direct to Roatan on American, Delta, United, and Taca airlines. Travel on the island is made simple with taxis, car rentals or water taxis. You could walk to many areas from our house as well. We can arrange for a driver to pick you up at the airport. He can also be available for the duration of your stay- at your request.

The property: Orchid Beach is a well maintained development of 7 homes owned by people from the U.S.Four of the homes are used for rental purposes, three for the owner's vacation use. All houses share the beach and dock, with a walkway on either side of the property. For those familiar with Roatan, we are in between Gumba Limba and Luna Beach. Our deck has alot of privacy and spectacular ocean and sunset views-throughout the house as well.

Roatan: The island is unsurpassed in pristine clear waters and beautiful reefs teeming with hundreds of varieties of fish and marinelife, all accessed by walking in right from the shore. Our beach/ water is home to many lobsters and other crustaceans, fish that can be seen as soon as you get in the water, and a resident eel. Snorkel in privacy there, or walk or catch a water taxi to West Bay beach which has deeper waters and caves to snorkel in, with a different variety of fish and sea turtles, squid, etc. The calm waters at either location offer a prime snorkeling experience.
You can walk to virtually every type of water excursion offered on Roatan right from our beach. Diving and restaurants are a short stroll. There are many excellent dining options on Roatan- the quality of fresh fish and seafood is outstanding. For those wanting comforts from home like burgers and pizza, that can be found as well.
The islanders are warm, friendly, and welcoming.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: We have always wanted a beach home for our family to share and fell in love with Roatan, especially with the convenient direct flights from the US!

                      Why the Owner Chose West Bay Beach:
                      We searched all over the island but once we stepped foot inside this beach house, we knew we had found our own little slice of paradise.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This home offers the privacy and peacefulness of the island, with the natural beauty of the birds and vegetation. Just steps to a quiet beach and dock, perfect sunsets every evening, and a myriad of stars at night. All this yet a short water taxi ride from the hustle and bustle, restaurants and dive shops of West Bay and West End.
