                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About: Melissa and I (David) are natives of Seattle Washington. We travel a great deal but fell in love with this island community. We decided to take the plunge, buy a lot and build our home on Roatan in 2003. We worked with a terrific local architect with a phenomenal Caribbean reputation, Hal Sorrenti, and contractor, D.V. Woods from an old island family, to build a wonderful retreat. Here are Hal and D.V. just before we started construction!

                  Why Lawson Rock:
                  We have traveled extensively throughout Central America. This island and this location were just perfect for a tropical getaway. We love being in, on and under the Caribbean ocean. The snorkeling from our community dock is simply outstanding! Kayaking around the reef is super fun as is swimming in bathtub warm water. The West End village is just 5 miles away with all kinds of funky restaurants and shops. 5 miles the other direction are two grocery stores that currently stock local items as well international fare. Just hanging at the house and/or the dock is what we like to do. On landing, we stop at the (now) great grocery stores and fish market to stock up on groceries, beer and great local shrimp and fish!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Beautiful home in a safe (24/7 security) environment with a property designed for relaxing with incredibly close snorkeling and ocean fun! The garden courtyard has grown to give a private environment all focused around a huge oak tree. At night the fireflies come out!
