Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Al and I (Sandra) have been married 24 years. We recently retired from hectic careers in Western US and Canada. We love animals and are coordinators for three yearly pet clinics.
Why the Owner Chose Sandy Bay: We have been certified divers since 1993. We knew we wanted to live in the Caribbean and fell in love with Roatan in 1997. We found our dream property with an old island home on the beach in 2001. It is just our house and the guest house on our 2 1/2 acres from road to beach. No need to walk through other neighborhoods.
We recently decided to rent our guest house that was built in 2007, but finished/upgraded in 2011.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The beach is right out your front door. You can quietly relax in a hammock or lounge chairs on our private part of the beach. There is no local access through this property and rarely motor vehicles on the beach here. Snorkel or take the kayak out about 150 yards to Spooky Channel. Anthony's Key and Roatan Institute of Marine Science is just 1/4 mile away.
