Property description

The Hummingbird House is in the residential area of 150+ acre gated community resort on the North Shore of white sand beaches and pristine coral reef. The 3 connected pods provide lots of privacy and social gathering space inside and around the very private outdoor pool. The gated community is one of tropical gardens, miles of secluded white sand beach, community pool, restaurant and PADI dive shop.

This 3 pod home surrounding its own pool is on 3/4 of an acre within a gated community of 150 + acres surrounding pristine Palmetto Bay. Palmetto Bay Plantation is a most unique development in that it has maintained and enhanced the natural beauty of the bay by its site planning, green space allocation and stewardship of the flora, fauna and marine life. It is a place to enjoy the beautiful sights and sounds that were the drawing cards of the Caribbean.

Hummingbird House location: This recently renovated and upgraded home is in the residential part of Palmetto Bay Plantation which is a gated community. It is on 3/4 of an acre and a golf cart is provided for quick and easy access to the beach, restaurant and dive shop. It has a private caretaker in addition to the private security provided by the development.

Three Pods: Hummingbird House consists of 3 pods that surround a private pool. The bedrooms have private seating areas within their pods. The great room is a pod to its self. Each area within the house is a separate building which offers privacy while still having connected enclosures. There are numerous areas to gather and enjoy each others company and there are numerous areas in which to escape and be alone.

Entertainment: There are several large flat screen TVs throughout this home that are connected to US satellite service. Internet access is provided within the home as well as an IPOD or MP3 docking station. Games are provided as are several dining areas.

Palmetto Bay Plantation is over 200 + acres surrounding Palmetto Bay on the north shore of the island of Roatan. The north shore is the shore with beaches and Palmetto Bay has miles of secluded white sand beach along a pristine bay filled with Starfish, Wahoo, blooming coral, and a 100 year old wreck. There is no other development nearby other than the very small village of of Islanders a couple of miles away (by the beach) at Crawfish Rock. The islands only golf course is just on the NE of Crawfish Rock (15 minutes by boat). On this map Crawfish Rock is located incorrectly. It is on the opposite side of the island from French Harbor.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: I am one of the rental managers for this property. I also own a home in Palmetto Bay Plantation. I left a career in IT project management to go live full time on Roatan with my husband and son in 2003. We were there for 6 years and then returned to the US to be with our son who had returned to college and would soon be graduating. We wanted to be with him before he went off to start his own life.

Why Palmetto Bay:
The development in which this property located has remained true to the character it presented in 2003. The green space has been kept and the natural beauty of the bay maintained. It is one of the few locations on the island where native palms are found. The house is as unique as the development.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The resort hires Islanders so it is Islanders with whom you interact. They are joyful people whose first language is English. It has miles of beach without beach vendors and cruise ship tourists. You get to enjoy the best that Roatan has to offer in the way of gardens, marine life, dock, food, dive shop, quiet glorious space.
