I'd recommend this house to my best friend!
I had a great time at Casa Marlin .... LOVED the sunset views! The house is comfortable and clean. The appliances are all new and it sits on a hill halfway between West Bay and West End.... great location. Great location, Great Price, Great House!

Great Month at Casa Marlin!
Great Month at Casa Marlin!
We spent a wonderful month at Casa Marlin. From the moment Marlin picked us up from the airport he was a perfect host, always smiling and pleasant. The house was very nice and arranged well with two bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms at ground level and open plan kitchen and living area upstairs. The kitchen has a new gas stove, refrigerator, microwave and toaster. The half bath on the upper level was convenient. The new ceiling fans worked well so we seldom had to run the air conditioner. Interesting pictures of Marlin's world travels decorated the walls. A good portion of our time each day was spent on the upper level porch complete with hammocks and four new blue chairs. It was so restful looking across the canopy of trees to the expansive view of the sea. If you see a large Anole lizard, green with a blue head (we named him "Ole Blue") be sure to hand feed him a small piece of bread each afternoon. Last time we stayed right on West Bay Beach and were a little concerned about the distance from Casa Marlin. But no worries...after a few days of your leg muscles adjusting to the hills and bridge we began to really enjoy the 20 minute journey. We walked the beach to West End once but took a taxi after that. Many heartfelt thanks to Marlin and Carleen for helping make our Roatan vacation such a memorable and fun month!!

Recommended for: Adventure seekers, romantic getaway, sightseeing.
We stayed here for 20 days & the villa was a big disappointment. I don't know when the photos were taken but it didn't look like that when we arrived. The living room furniture was shabby, no nice dining table, chairs & carpet as shown in the pictures. The table & chairs had been brought in off the deck as a substitute & were ingrained with dirt. Therefore there was no chairs to sit on outside on the deck. There were a couple of dirty folding camp chairs & when we opened them up they had holes where mice or something had chewed on them. The grill was dirty & useless as stated in the previous review. There was a great video library but no way of viewing them as there was no TV. The a/c in the living room was useless & was not working properly. There was no microwave in the kitchen as stated & shown on the web page. The fridge was not working properly & our food went bad. The only shelf in the fridge was held together with duct tape which kept collapsing when you put anything on it. The master bedroom had no curtains, only a couple of broken blinds & we found some material to pin up at the windows for privacy as the house opposite could obviously see you lying in bed. The bedroom closet had all kinds of rubbish thrown in under the stairs. After being there a week we asked for clean sheets & were told they didn't supply a change & we had to wash the dirty ones ourselves. We have travelled all over the world & have never ever had to find a laundry to get them washed & dried back the same day. The 2nd Bedroom a/c was unplugged, obviously for quite a while as it wasn't working. We complained to Marlin about the a/c & fridge & after waiting a couple of days he sent someone to try to fix it. The bedroom a/c was replaced with a new one. The fridge was fixed but only worked for a day & it was back to not working properly. No cold beer in this place! The living room a/c was not rectified & it was like living in a green house. Unfortunately on the 4th day when out in the car, it stalled & caught fire & burnt to the ground, luckily no one was hurt. We had to hire a rental as a car is a must here. This would be a really nice villa if a little bit more effort was put into it & the problems were solved. It would have been nice to sit out on the deck on decent chairs & relax with a cool drink the whole villa was a big letdown. I'm sure if all these issues were rectified, Marlin could easily increase the rates on the villa but as it is now, we would not make a return visit

Owner response: My home has been happily rented steadily for the last 10 months prior to these Guests. I believe their primary issue was them burning my car to the ground, and worrying about NOT being held responsible. Beyond that, it was a matter of 4 individuals used to the UK, trying to get by in a tropical climate, where they were uncomfortable and everyone of them had stomah problems. Every issue they raised, was addressed immediately, even when somehow an outside tap had been broken and was leaking, we were out there on a Sunday night in the dark, fixing it. In the meantime, after 3 visits from a repair man, I purchased a brand new fridge, we purchased a brand new air conditioner, the day after they complained about it, the main unit was recharged and works like new, and after a Utility power surge, all ceiling fans were replaced new. This is the home where I lived full time for 5 years, but perhaps their expectations for $70/night were unattainable, without a 5 star hotel.
As Advertised! Great vacation bungalow.

The hosts (Marlin and Carleen) were wonderful from start to finish - personally greeting us at the airport, and taking us grocery shopping on the way. The car is a MUST. Although the location is great (half way between West Bay and West End), you do not want to walk it (at least more than once). That being said, on days without a car, you can take a leisurely stroll along the beach (both directions) by walking down the road about 1/2 mile. Accommodations were as advertised- clean and comfortable. No TV (who cares), BBQ grill on its very last leg (so don't count on using it), kitchen fully stocked, internet access via usb 3G modem (provided), limited to 2GB for the week. For the price, with the car, it's a great deal!
