Nestled above a private cove beach ( locally called a “keyhole”) on the South shore of the tropical island of Roatan, L’Alizé enjoys both a constant sea breeze and a dramatic view of the Caribbean every day of the year. 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.
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. In 2011 a major renovation added the pool, deck, cottage, two bedrooms and two baths.
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, . Only two of Roatan's vacation rental properties have qualified for this prestigious rating (see luxury.homeaway.com).
