Sandy Bay house description

The property's coordinates are: +16° 20' 13.44', -86° 33' 31.92'. You can easily find it via google maps.

The beautiful Caribbean island of Roatan in the Bay Islands of Honduras offers some of the world's best SCUBA diving The island is surrounded by the world's second largest coral reef, hugging most of the shore.This provides calm, clear beaches for swimming and snorkeling, and many varieties of sea life. Roatan's many excellent dive operators assure convenient access. Roatan is not as touristy as many Caribbean islands, but you will find plenty of activities and things to see and learn about the island and Honduran culture.
Our location in Sandy Bay is on a beautiful white sandy beach and our private dock is there to launch your swimming and snorkeling a short distance to the vibrant coral reef. It has ample room , a covered seating area where you can enjoy many hours of relaxing with a book, visiting friends, or enjoying the breathtaking sunsets. For those times you don't want to cook, you can try Blue Parrot Restaurant or the Hungry Kiwi at Lawson Rock or just let our maid ,Tina,know she is a great cook!
On the other side of the road there is a simple place to eat local food for little money, but only during daytime.



Our beach home features sumptuous and beautifully appointed master suites that are furnished with king-size beds, A/C,additional fans and private en suite baths. The loft has 2 twin beds,2 fans, and its own private bath. The living area is open to a full kitchen and a breakfast bar that seats six. There is purified water in the house. It goes through various filters + UV light. You will find a cellphone with 50 Lempiras on it. Easily it is charged with any amount you like. You can receive calls from the US and also make intenational calls. Wireless internet for free! Our housemanager, Kevin, can arrange for airport pickup, gives you a tour of the house and the private dock and will help you with anything you might need. You find his phone number on the cell phone.

The large covered deck includes an eating area, lounge chairs, and hammocks. Relax and enjoy your vacation knowing our private 24-hour security and full-time housekeeper are there.

Our housekeeper Tina will on request prepare one great tasting meal /day ,delicious and if you like also exotic. For comments check our guestbook. She asks a reasonable fee for this extra service.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1994

                      About the owner: Otto is a geologist now retired and Iso, a physiotherapist, runs 2 clinics in Vienna/ Austria .The 2 children,daughter a doctor for rehabilitation and son administration manger lead the clinics now to give their mother more time to spend on Roatan.

                      Why the Owner Chose Sandy Bay:
                      Spending a vacation at Anthony's Key Resort we were fascinated by the beauty of the island and the friendlyness of the people and started to look for a place to build a house. What we found had more than we expected. A white beach with a spectacular reef just in front, mature coconut trees and other tropical fruit, flowers and a small creek. It even provided a safe area to build the house about 20 feet above sea level.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Not far from town and airport but away from the tourist crowd, still close enough to get to all the restaurants and bars by taxi in about 10 minutes. Snorkeling and diving from the private dock,harvesting mangos from the large deck, swinging in the hammock on the large deck or above the waves on the dock.
