              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: We are orignally from the Florida Keys Diving the reefs of Fla,. In earlier years it was unsurpassed. Then we discovered Roatan on a vacation. We came to fish and dive but decided to retire here.

              Why the Owner Chose Sandy Bay:
              The beach front is beautiful,. Sunsets a different one every night .Being able to swim to the reef without a boat keeps you in shape.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              No stress ,peace and quiet with the ecological natural beauty of the area. If your seeking to escape the crowds of tourism at high end resorts our area is quiet and undiscovered but close to high end tourism areas
