West Bay Beach house description

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

L’Alizé, is spaciously laid out to maximize the 3500 sq/ft., with a large master bedroom and master bath complete with double shower. There are additionally 2500sq/ft balconies and decks. The 3rd floor guest room enjoys a spectacular view with a large private deck and spacious bath. The second floor great room opens to a large deck, The kitchen, living and dining room occupying the entire second level. The breathtaking view invites you to sit and take it all in. An ample half bath is conveniently located on this level. Air conditioning was installed in the dining area /living area for those rare days when the winds die down.

The first floor addition has its own kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and a living-area which, overlooks an equally stunning view of the pool, patio and the Caribbean. High speed internet now reaches this area as well. Recently upgraded the internet provides 5mb/sec download speed.. Wireless Internet works on all 3 floors.
This first level living has speakers which can connect via aux cable or iphones/ipad, cable. This room opens to the pool area.

The house is rented as a 4 bedroom home but, we offer discounts to parties of 4 or less. The guest cottage can be added to offer more space for larger parties.

Eddie our capable groundskeeper will tend the pool and rake the beach each day and assist you as needed,–even pick up your carry out.

A vehicle is available for our guests' use throughout their stay as available. Please ask for details.

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. L’Alize added to its collection of fun things to do, two tandem ocean kayaks. (see picture) With these Kayaks, one can glide to sights few eyes have seen as these silent crafts make their way past the uninhabited iron shore.
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.

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.
