West Bay Beach bungalow description

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

The Seaside Inn is located on a fairly level sandy lane within a two 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.

West Bay beach is stunning, crystal clear turquoise water with a white sandy beach. And it’s all just a short stroll from our property.

Here you’ll wake up every morning listening to the birds sing and watch the scarlet macaws and iguanas while enjoying your coffee on the deck. Early morning walks or runs on the beach are inspiring. Before the beach is awake, it’s calm and quiet as the sun rises.

If you’re a diver, there’s a 5-star PADI dive center (West Bay Divers) located on the beach at the end of our lane. If you love to snorkel then you’ll be glad to know that the best snorkeling is right off the beach from anywhere on the island. No boat rentals are necessary. Roatan is surrounded by a fantastic close-in reef just feet from the shore. Grab your gear and jump in anywhere!

Some of the best snorkeling is at the south end of West Bay Beach where you’ll find the iron shore. The iron shore area is a 5 minute walk down the beach from our location or plunge into the ocean at the end of our lane and snorkel the reef to the west.

As you walk out 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, more towns and resorts.

Within walking distance are many restaurants, bars and resorts offering activities and tours. Go parasailing or deep sea fishing; all close-by our location. At the nearby West Bay Mall, our guests enjoy the convenience of the coffee shop and a fully stocked market and delicatessen that also offers a take-out menu!

WE’RE ADDING A PRIVATE POOL. By the end of August we’ll be able to offer our guests the use and luxury of our private in-ground swimming pool. Just outside your suite will be a gorgeous pool to enjoy after a hard day of playing on the island.

A continental breakfast will be served for all rentals beginning November 2014. At that time, the breakfast will include all kinds of goodies – yogurt, homemade granola, fresh tropical fruits, muffins, juices and cereal. We’re in the process of planning an additional kitchen/breakfast bar to be able to whip up a hot breakfast also.

Unlike the mega resorts, Seaside Inn is a small private resort which provides our guests with a calm, quiet retreat away from crowds and noise. 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 and the Toucan and Macaw are studio suites with kitchenettes. All units have private entrances.

All units have separate listings on VRBO. Rent one bedroom or all three to accommodate up to 6 adults. (See “All my Rental Listings” below for all available units.)


This listing is for the Gecko. The Gecko is a small 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 pot, microwave, toaster and a refrigerator. It has all the pots, pans, dishware and utensils you’ll need for preparing basic meals. The bathroom is beautifully tiled with a walk-in shower. The living area has a comfy loveseat and chair, where you can kick back and watch cable TV or DVD or just enjoy a quiet read - all in the cool of air conditioning if you'd like. The dining area is separate, with a table and 4 chairs. The bedroom has a queen pillow top bed, built-in clothes storage and its own quiet, cool, air conditioning.

The Gecko has a private covered porch, with chairs and a serene view of the jungle. This is where you’ll be watching the scarlet macaws, iguanas, the occasional armadillo and many bright colored geckos in the morning while enjoying your coffee.

We furnish two beach towels, hair dryer, coffee filters, a roll of paper towel, toilet paper, trash bags and dish soap.

All towels and linens are provided. Your towels are refreshed once during a week stay. If you stay is longer than a week, we clean the bungalow weekly, change your linens and refresh your towels.

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.

              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.
