Property description

Nestled above a private cove beach ( locally called a “keyhole”) on the South shore of the tropical island of Roatan, this large luxury home, enjoys both a constant sea breeze and a dramatic view of the Caribbean. L’Alizé derives its name from the French word for African trade winds, (alizés) which flow East to West during the warmest months of the year. These dramatic winds account for a such a surprising cooling effect on the hottest days, that it quickly becomes clear why Roatan’s earliest towns settled on the South side of the island where these winds rarely fail to cool and refresh while they keep the bugs in check. In January one guest wrote, "We toured the whole island and there isn't a more beautiful property on Roatan. I didn't use any Deet and didn't get a bite."

L’Alize was built by one of Roatan’s premier builders in 2008-2009. The building techniques and materials reflect attention to detail and quality construction. Keen usage of space, and maximization of views and sea breezes, remind one that this exquisite home was built to be enjoyed year round by the builder himself. Probably the aspect people comment on most is the incredible beauty coupled with an unusual privacy. Not only is the home located on its own acre of land, with pristine jungle abutting the Caribbean, but the home itself has multiple porches and several lounges for guests to have time alone with plenty of large spaces to have time together.

In 2014 L'Alize was awarded the distinction of a luxury destination for Homeaway’s Luxury Rentals site, by Andrew Harper, a leading luxury travel company TM, . One of 5 luxury rental properties on Roatan which have qualified for this prestigious rating (see

L’Alizé, is spaciously laid out to maximize the 3500 sq/ft., There are breathtaking views from each floor, patio, balcony and almost every bedroom. The third level has two spacious bedrooms and a convenient laundry room The second level has a great room with kitchen, 1/2 bath, and a large porch for dining and lounging (and a view you will never forget). The 1st level has 2 bedrooms, a living room and kitchen with a porch which opens to the pool patio and a beautiful vista of the keyhole. Air conditioning was installed in the 2nd floor dining /living area for those rare days when the winds die down.
Wireless Internet is available throughout the home.

The house is rented as a 4 bedroom home but, we offer discounts to small parties. The guest cottage (now fitted with ac and newly remodeled) is a perfect addition if you need a 5th bedroom. This room is ideal for those who like even more privacy. Its compact kitchen allows you the freedom to store snacks and more.
With 3 Kitchens, 6 bathrooms and many patios, guests can spread out and have their space or gather to share stories of their.

Eddie our capable groundskeeper will tend the pool and rake the beach each day and assist you as needed,–even drive you and pick you up if you make arrangements. Olga, his wife, will competently provide daily housekeeping (please let her know when you would like her to come). Olga will even prepare excellent Honduran meals (on request ), so everyone can relax a little more.

Nestled in a pristine wildlife retreat that exhibits a wide spectrum of eco systems, L’Alize only gets more stunning as you leave the home to explore the iron-shore. From mangroves to volcanic iron-shore and ancient coral, this nature walk is worth the effort. Mangrove canopy tunnels and the pristine keyholes will delight visitors as they wind their way on the nature trail leading to Pirates Cove. Of all the features that make this home a sanctuary from the pressures of busy lives, the one that sooths the soul best, is the unspoiled habitat surrounding L’Alize. Pick a less breezy day , to take the Kayaks out for a ride to the second keyhole toward Pirates Cove. These kayaks will glide to sights few eyes have seen.
Whether seeking sanctuary from a pressure filled life or celebrating the beginning of a new life with your special someone, L’Alizé offers adventure or relaxation, luxury and privacy, unspoiled nature and plenty of nearby activities to suit all tastes.

Car: Recommended

Located on the South Shore of West Bay, L'Alizè sits perched above a pristine Cove beach, with wildlife and tropical vegetation surrounding the home. Guests can visit West Bay Beach, (a 3 min drive or 15 min walk) to enjoy restaurants, a nature park, rent scuba equipment or even risk para-sailing. Enjoy relaxing on the pristine white sand beaches or check out the snorkel gear from L'Alizé and see what beauty lies beneath the turquoise waters. Relaxing in the salt water pool is the perfect way to relax and reflect on your perfect day. Two tandem Kayaks are now available to guests. Each can seat 3 average sized adults. These gliding boats will allow guests to see the dramatic beauty of the uninhabited iron shore and explore caves and snorkel new areas. If you would like to use these please ask at check-in.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Owners' kids slack line across the path to the keyhole beach. Owners live and work in Central America. L'Alizé's natural beauty and privacy provide a place to catch up on unfinished business. This is an ideal setting for uninterrupted reading, painting or writing. With their children they enjoy exploring caves, the rope swing and snorkeling.

Why the Owner Chose West Bay Beach:
A true getaway. Nestled in dramatic untamed beauty on pristine turquoise shores with abundant wildlife, makes this home a refuge as well as a great place to celebrate family gatherings. Restaurants, and grocery stores are only minutes away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
L'Alizé has all the modern conveniences of home with the feel of an outpost on an uninhabited island. The view from the second floor great room took our breath away the first time and each time we visit. We never get used to the beauty. The home is well maintained and regularly updated with the amenities we want to find.
