  • Paradise!

    "If you like your bed made daily, cabana boys to bring you drinks, fine dining, and mingling with tourist, DO not go here as you will be completely disappointed. If you don't need any of the above, book now! For our 25th anniversary, I tried to find a place that was quite, off the beaten path, secluded and private & affordable! Toucan Blue checked every box. This place is truly the epitome of paradise. Palm trees, fresh coconuts, humming birds, parrots and song birds, lizards, sunsets that will take your breath away, sunrises that will wake you up, tin roof that will make you yearn for a little rain at night, fresh conch and lobster from the old man in the dugout canoe, local dinning that is superb and affordable...... Lynda was very responsive from the day I sent for information to Liz, the island property manager who emailed answers to every question we had. Liz met us at the airport in our rented Isuzu trooper(rent from Lynda!!! You will see why) and took us to Eldons to get groceries. What an experience. We are truly spoiled in the USA! Also stopped off at the gourmet store for a few things like steak and rum. Driving to the house, prepare for a drop off the main road down a gravel, steep road to the bottom. Then onto the wooden road across the mangroves to the compound. Wow! Daniel or Wilfred will greet you. They are the on-site "security guards". Not sure what they are guarding but they live under the palm trees for three days at a time. Every morning, you wake up and the entire property is raked and. Nothing but sand remains. Caution- apply bug spray every day frequently! We read it and followed the "RULE" and had no problems. We saw some tourist on a trip to West Bay who didn't follow the RULE and will pay the price with bad bites. Snorkeling off the reef at the house was unbelievable. Clear, calm, fish, coral, etc! Kayaking was very cool. Kind of like being in a huge swimming pool. We never turned the air condition on. Slept with window and blinds open every night with fan on. Breakfast on the upper deck, fishing, port royal beer, siesta and off to McNabbs in Jonesville or Cals cantina or Camp Bay resort for lunch. Cooked on the grill every night. We were told to be off the roads by dark. There are no street lights so we heeded the advice. We sunned on the pier to avoid the no seeum bugs and would advice you to do this as well. The palapa was a perfect sunset spot. Bring water shoes! Enjoy"

  • A Special Place...

    "This was my third stay at the Sunset House and I decided to stay in the back apartment above the caretakers quarters. It was great! The "Turtle Apartment" Has a full kitchen, full bath and two AC units! There is a very comfy couch that folds out into a bed in the living room too (not shown in the photos or video). My friends were staying in the main house and I didn't book until a week before my trip. The owners were very accommodating with my late booking by the way, no stress whatsoever. Now for the updates... every time I come back there are updates... i love this place... Solar Panels: The new solar panels keep the hot water hot... even outside in the outdoor shower. These are only on the main house (not the Turtle Apartment) however. New Bathroom: The owners added a new bathroom in the back part of the main house so you don't need to go inside or upstairs if your just running in from snorkeling or swimming. Makes it really convenient when nature calls. The Sailboat: I rented the 15 foot Hobie Cat one day and had so much fun I rented it again the following day. It's really easy to use and sooo much fun. It seats 4 but goes a lot faster with just 2 people... or even faster with just one person!!! New paint and rugs and shades in the main house. Very nice updates! See the video for the latest. AC: The two new AC units in the Turtle Apartment work great! They have remote controls and keep the apartment very comfy during the night. There is also a new fan in the downstairs bedroom (of the main house) fixed to the wall. Staying in the back apartment was great. I really felt like one of the locals (not a tourist) and enjoyed getting to know the neighbors. Joni the caretaker lives downstairs and is extremely helpful with whatever you need. The entire estate is very safe. My only complaint would be that I only stayed for one week... I need to stop doing this. Book the Sunset House for two weeks. TRUST ME. Overall I highly recommend the Sunset House and everything you see in the pictures and video is 100% accurate."

  • family vacation

    "We had our big family vacation this year in this beautiful villa in Utila. We were a total of 11 people with 6 adults and 5 children. There was more than enough room for all of us. The rooms were large, clean and the air conditioners worked wonderfully. Kids spent hours in the pool while we enjoyed the incredible view from the back porch. The island offered some of the best snorkeling and diving spots in the whole world but there was even plenty of snorkeling to be done from right in front of the house. We got to see eels and stingrays along with other tropical fish right in front of the house. It was truly amazing. The house had WiFi and US satellite TV to keep us in contact with home. Town is 5 minutes golf cart ride away. We felt very safe throughout the stay. Blanca went out of her to make sure we had an incredible vacation."

  • So peaceful!

    "We typically prefer to be right on the beach when we vacation. We weren't sure at first how we would like being off the beach even though it was close. Turns out that we loved it! This is Roatan's high season, and the beach was often crowded. It was so nice to walk just a few steps and feel the peace and quiet. Yes, the houses are close to each other, but we loved the atmosphere. There are so many trees, you don't realize how close you are to Infinity Bay, the busy beach (when several ships were in), or even the other houses. If you look at West Bay Village from a Google map, you'll see what I mean. The houses are hard to see from above because of the trees. The house was very nice. We especially loved the large shower in the guest room. We used it instead of the master bath. The managers were very easy to work with and were eager to help us with anything we needed. This was our third time to Roatan, so we didn't feel the need to leave West Bay to explore. We very much enjoyed a week of rest, relaxation, snorkeling, floating in the water until sunset, and eating at our favorite place (Foster's)."
