  • A PERFECT CHOICE

    "This was our third time in Roatan, we love West Bay, its wonderful beach and amenities.  In previous visits we rented homes on the beach but for our large group this time we needed a bigger property  and more privacy. The beach is crowded on cruise ship days. We saw Belvedere villas on our last visit and thought  it would be perfect for our family group. The property prime  location offers spectacular views and it is just a short walk to the beach, easy on the way down, a bit steep on the way back. However, we found this to be an invigorating exercise. The  two upscale villas are  surrounded by lush and well kept tropical gardens, very spacious, nicely and comfortably furnished with all amenities and luxury appointments. The full  kitchens in both homes are  modern and complete with all utensils and china ware. Elegant and comfortable bedrooms. Large bathrooms with granite countertops. There are several furnished terraces for outdoor living and dining. Great outdoor panoramic  decks and pool  with a lot of loungers, two furnished gazebos, outdoor kitchen with BBQ, small refrigerator, sink and a large dining table. There is even an outdoor restroom by the pool. Though we were a large group we never felt crowded both indoor and outdoor. A constant  cooling breeze made it possible to minimize using air condition, which is an additional charge here as in the majority  of rental homes on Roatan. Electricity is very expensive on the island. The manager was welcoming us on arrival, he was prompt, ready to assist and always friendly in answering our calls and requests. The on site caretaker and the cleaning girl  were very helpful always smiling, and hard working. We were very pleased with this choice and the service offered. Really a great value. We all had a wonderful time and could have not asked for more."

  • Wonderful Week at Mariposa Del Mar

    "We recently stayed at Mariposa Del Mar and could have not chosen a better villa for our vacation. It was everything we anticipated plus more. The villa is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. We were picked up at the airport by Phil, son of owners Bruce and Nicky, who are such a delight. During the 45 minute drive to the house, Phil filled us in on island life, specifics at the house, etc. Yes, the nearest grocery store is 20 minutes away but Phil stopped for us to stock up on drinks and snacks for the week. This property is an escape from the busy, touristy part of Roatan. Just what we anticipated and wanted! Each morning began with coffee and ended by relaxing with a glass of wine on the deck overlooking the beautiful water. The sunsets seemed to get more beautiful each night. Rosa purchased the food and along with her daughter, Pearl, cooked a delicious breakfast and dinner every day. Rosa's homemade tortillas are delicious and ribs were to die for. (We are all now on a diet!) Tuesday night was pizza night, and we enjoyed meeting the guests in Fuego del Mar along with Bruce and Nicky. The meal and food cost is a bargain compared to what it would be for us to eat at a restaurant for 14 meals at home. Fausto, the caretaker, was just a cell phone call away when we needed kayaks, ice for the cooler, or anything else. The housekeepers even did our laundry! Each evening at dusk, our outdoor lights were turned on and candle were lit (thanks, Lester!). When we drove up to the gate, someone was always there to open it. EVERYTHING you could possibly need was provided. We had an amazing time at Mariposa del Mar, even with a few ants, bees, geckos, frogs, and lizards. That's just part of the experience! I fell in love with K-2, the house cat who paid a daily visit. Having the use of a car and cell phone was also very helpful. We had no problems with daytime driving but did not attempt at night. We hope to return to Mariposa del Mar one day! THANK YOU for an awesome week!"

  • Perfect Vacation

    "We visited Roatan during the rainy season and it was still one of our best family vacations. The Hummingbird House was beautiful and our contact for the house rental was very helpful. We received excellent instructions and suggestions for traveling to this island. Every detail from getting to the house, shopping around town, and communicating with the onsite managers went smoothly. The house was immaculate and the layout fit our family needs perfectly. The beach was beautiful and very private and the snorkeling was great! We had three generations with us and all of us had a wonderful time. We rented a vehicle; there was a mix up with our reservation (our fault, not the rental company's fault), and the only thing available was a 4 wheel drive truck. Turns out that was the best vehicle we could have had on the island! Highly recommend renting something with 4 wheel drive. We have been back home for a week and already planning when we can return to the Hummingbird House!"

  • Great Location and Amenities

    "Staying in this house was a great experience. It's at the edge of downtown and only few minutes from both the beach and the city center. The owner and the housekeeper were helpful and really did their job making us feel at home. Great experience and would definitely stay there again."
