West Bay Beach house description
The charming Turtle Trails is a 2 story house just a short 2 minute walk down a tree lined private road from the world famous West Bay Beach. The house is divided into 2 units, upstairs and downstairs. The downstairs is the only unit that is available for rent. The newly constructed unit is only one bedroom but it sleeps 4-6 people. It has 1 air-conditioned bedroom with queen sized bed and a King Sized Bed, a spacious kitchen, comfortable living area with a TV/DVD player and a sofa bed, and a large outdoor deck that’s the perfect place to take an afternoon siesta.
It is located less than a 2 minute walk down a jungled lane to the white sand beach of West Bay, the best beach on Roatan and one of the best beaches in the Caribbean.
It is also just a short walk to bars, restaurants, and shopping. Near by restaurants include Beachers, Bite on the Beach, Las Rocas, Island Pearl, Infinity Bay, and more. It’s convenient location is close enough to the beach to smell the salt air but has the privacy and tranquility that is lacking in beachfront hotels and residences.
We also have a 4 bedroom house available for rent on West Bay beach for larger groups. The price starts at $1200 per week plus electricity.
As part of our rental service, we can arrange for anything and everything you want to do while on the island. We have lived here for over 7 years and know everything about everything on Roatan. We can even stock the refrigerator with your favorite foods and drinks. What better than to have an ice cold beer waiting for you upon arrival?
The condo also comes with a cell phone that can make and receive inexpensive local and international phone calls and a USB 3G internet Modem.
We do not include electricity in the rental price. We include an electricity allowance that covers the use of the fans, fridge, and hot water heater. Instead of charging fees for laundry, A/C , extra people, and so forth, it is easier and fairer to charge for electricity instead. We read the meter at check-in and check-out and use the previous month's bill to determine the rate. We found that including electricity in the price made people want to get their money's worth by leaving the A/Cs constantly on at full blast and every light in the place on. Not only is it eco unfriendly, it meant we had to tack on an extra $200 / week to the rental rate.
We also add a $10 / person annual Marine Park User Fee. The money goes to a local Non Governmental Organization that works tirelessly to protect and conserve Roatan's coral reefs. Each guest will be given a bracelet or token saying that you have paid. If you plan on diving, simply show this to the dive operator so you will not be charged twice.

- The Turtle Trails house is located just a 2 minute walk down a private tree lined road to the world famous West Bay Beach. West Bay is the most beautiful beach on the island and has been voted one of the best beaches in the Caribbean by several publications. There are over 20 restaurants, many hotels, dive shops, and more along the beach or just off of it. The Meso American Reef, the second longest barrier reef in the world, actually comes right up to the beach. It is closer to shore in West Bay than anywhere else on Roatan. This means that the snorkeling and diving from the shore are fantastic. It’s convenient location is close enough to the beach to smell the salt air but has the privacy and tranquility that is lacking in beachfront hotels and residences. ...moreless

Great Location, ample space.
Great Location, ample space.
The rental consist of 2 units, one upstairs, one downstairs. I rented the downstairs unit. Its quite spacious, has sufficient space to house a family and includes a large balcony/patio overlooking the forest. The location is great for relax, given that West Bay and its white sand beach is no more than 200 yd away. The kitchen is very well equipped, as to be able to to cook great meals during your stay.

Charming House in the Best Location on the Island
Charming House in the Best Location on the Island
My husband and I have stayed here on several occasions since the house was built last year. We used to stay at one of the hotels nearby, which I will not name, but it has become a zoo. On cruise ship day the restaurant and bar is slammed, it is impossible to get service, the entire hotel is loud and crammed. So we decided to give this place a try. It is fantastic. It is located a 2 minute walk to the beach down a sandy/dirt road. And lets talk about the beach. The white sands and sky blue water are stunning. Photos do not do it justice. The house itself is nothing fancy but everything you will need. It has a kitchen that comes with everythinf you will need to cook a meal or reheat leftovers. A living area with a TV (though we never watch it), and comfortable beds with cold AC. The best part is the hammock on the balcony where I relax with a book in the afternoon and take a siesta. The manager is fantastic and goes out of her way to accommodate us. The only issue I have is that the road can be a bit dark at night so bring a flashlight. Other than that, its perfect.

Year Purchased: 2011
About: I am a teacher from Canada and hope to someday be able to retire on warm, sunny Roatan.
Why West Bay Beach:
I purchased this land years ago as I have dreamed of owning a place in West Bay since my frist trip to Roatan. The powdery white sand beach, the clear blue water, the palm trees blowing in the wind, the fantastic snorkeling just off shore. This is my paradise.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is located just far enough off the beach that you can escape from the crowds while close enough that you can still smell the salt air and hear the ocean.
