Property description

Welcome to Seaside Inn. We purchased this gorgeous property in March of 2014 and we hope to be the best little resort on West Bay Beach.

Seaside Inn is located on a fairly-level sandy road within a three minute walking distance from the beach. The location is awesome! We’re nestled in the jungle away from all the bustle of the beach but close enough to enjoy the restaurants, bars and activities West Bay has to offer.

We have a new, beautiful private pool! Our guests can lounge around our pool for a lazy vacation day or enjoy a nice evening cocktail after a hard day of playing on the island. Our pool is not open to the public – it is for Seaside Inn’s private use :).

Unlike the mega resorts, we are a small private resort which provides our guests with a calm, quiet retreat away from the crowds. We cater to our guests and strive to provide a wonderful stay on this incredible island.

We have 3 rental units available at this time. The Gecko is a detached 1 bedroom bungalow with a full kitchen, living area, bedroom and bath - VRBO Listing #564852 – http://www.vrbo.com/564852 and the Toucan and Macaw are studio suites - VRBO Listings #564850/564851 - http://www.vrbo.com/564850 and http://www.vrbo.com/564851 each with kitchenettes and a private tiled bath. All units have private entrances. Rent one, two or three units to accommodate up to 6 adults. For more than one unit, please visit VRBO listing #600543 (http://www.vrbo.com/600543). Please visit the individual VRBO listing #'s to see the rates for individual units and more detailed pictures of each accommodation.

This listing is for the Gecko bungalow. The Gecko is a stand-alone private bungalow with one bedroom, one bath and separate living area. It also has a full-sized kitchen. The kitchen has a two-burner stovetop, coffee maker, microwave, blender, toaster, sink and a refrigerator. It has all the pots, pans, dishware and utensils you’ll need for preparing delicious meals. The bathroom is beautifully tiled with a walk-in shower. The living and dining area has a comfy loveseat, chair and ottoman, a dining room table with 4 chairs, modern split, quiet, air conditioning, two ceiling fans, where you can kick back and watch cable TV, DVD or just enjoy a quiet read. The bedroom has a queen pillow-top bed; built-in clothes storage and also has modern split, quiet, air conditioning and a ceiling fan.

The Gecko has a private covered porch, with chairs and a view of the jungle where you can enjoy the morning with fresh brewed coffee.

Just so you know what to pack and what to buy at the local grocery store, each rental unit has:
• 2 beach towels
• local cell phone
• in-room safe
• hair dryer
• flashlight
• alarm clock
• blender, toaster, microwave, coffee maker
• basic supplies: toilet paper, coffee filters, paper towels, trash bags, dish soap, hand soap, salt & pepper
• 5-gallon bottle(s) of water
• full set of dishes & glasses plus assorted plastic tumblers and wine glasses for use by the pool
• pots and pans are provided in the Gecko Bungalow for the 2 burner stove-top

There is a washer and dryer for guest use (you can keep your luggage to a minimum :) conveniently located on the guest balcony along with a small freezer stocked with cubed ice. Our rates include cable TV (over 100 channels) and free WIFI. All towels and linens are provided. We also have an automatic standby generator to handle any power outage - so don't worry, your air conditioning will stay running all night, you'll always have hot water and feel the cool breeze of your ceiling fan!

Beacher's restaurant and bar provides our guests free beach lounge chairs! You never have to worry about trying to find a beach chair or paying for one to rent! They have the best coconut shrimp and the best Monkey La La’s on the island!!

If you’re a diver, there’s a 5-star PADI dive center (West Bay Divers- http://westbaydivers.com/) located on the beach at the end of our road. If you love to snorkel then you’ll be glad to know that Roatan is surrounded by a fantastic close-in reef just feet from the shore.

West Bay beach is stunning with crystal clear turquoise water with a white sandy beach. And it’s all just a short stroll from our property where there are many restaurants, bars and resorts offering activities such as para-sailing or deep sea fishing! At the nearby West Bay Mall, our guests enjoy the coffee shop and convenience market with delicatessen that also offers a take-out menu!

As you walk down to the beach, the public dock is conveniently located to your right where you can catch a water taxi to the tourist town of West End for more shopping, diving, and of course, more snorkeling! Island tours are available by water and land taxis to whisk you away for a day at the spa, Anthony’s Key to swim with the dolphins, zip lines, the Iguana Park, and much, much more!

Choose us for your tropical island getaway – you’ll be glad you did!

720-949-6121 - If we're at the beach, we'll return your call within 24 hours.

Notes:

The A/C is separately metered. Some guests don't use the AC so this keeps the rates low. If you choose to use the A/C, it costs about $7-$9 per day depending on the length of time used and how cold you keep it. We read the A/C meter upon arrival and the morning of your departure.

For each week of stay, a $100 cash refundable security deposit is required upon arrival (for each unit rented).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: grew up in upstate New York. My father was a U.S. Forest Service ranger, so we moved to Colorado when I was in high school. I then went on to serve 4 years in the Marine Corps, then 4 years of college in Oregon and Arizona. I graduated from Arizona State in 1985. I move around a lot, taking different jobs as a software engineer. My last job was working for Hewlett-Packard for 15 years. I always have vacationed in the tropics and decided that before I got too old, I'd do something different and live in the Caribbean. After a lot of searching, Roatan was definitely the choice!

Why the Owner Chose West Bay Beach:
I fell in love with this beautiful home and island after looking at several other Caribbean destinations. The home is in the shaded jungle, just steps from the most beautiful beach on Roatan. West Bay Beach was recently named by the 'Island Magazine' as one of the top ten beaches in the world. The island is small, so you get to know everyone and it develops a sense of family.
