"A very nice place!!!.. Pirates view is everything you see in the pictures and much more!!!.. This was the first time for our family to rent a house in Roatan so we were not quite sure what to expect, but we could not be more pleased with the choice we made. This house was everything we hoped it would be. It is spacious, clean and complete. We were ten adults and we were all very comfortable. We stayed at Pirates View for a week and it was amazing!!!. The outdoor decks on the second and third level are the perfect place to relax and watch the sunset. You can go swimming, snorkeling or kayaking without having to go far...everything you need is in the garage for you to use!!!... The house is only a few minutes away from everything: restaurants, supermarket, gas station, etc. Although taxis are available everywhere, the best thing is to rent a car, especially if you want to explore the island, which is a must. Well...there is not enough I could say about this place. Claire, Kevin and Desiree were at the airport to meet us and escort us to the house. They are wonderful and very helpful. thanks Claire!!!... I will definitely look you up next time I go back to Roatan :)"

"It was an amazing and relaxing vacation at Hobbies. Thanks to our host, Sue and John we could relax from the time we were picked up at the airport until we sadly had to go home after two weeks in this lovely quiet and safe area. The information provided to us by John gave us the knowledge and confidence to take the local bus to town and explore on our own. Our little apartment # 3- was perfect for our needs and the large covered porch allowed us to enjoy the ocean view and the soft breeze.
My best friend and I get together every few years and plan a girl’s get away. (More accurately - older ladies in our 60's) We wanted to snorkel and walk and enjoy the area, and we did. There was no difficulty for us to swim from the dock to the reef every sunny day. The reef is full of life everywhere you look. We could not have been more amazed with the sites and having it right in front of the apartment doubled our pleasure. Thank you so much Sue and John for sharing this experience with us. The personal service at Hobbies is superior to any we have previously experienced. The airport pickup, grocery shopping and the tour of the towns gave us a sense belonging. You will not get service like this just anywhere, what a pleasure to have experienced this from our hosts Sue and John. John arranged horseback riding on the beach and drove to us to Anthony’s Keys for our morning ride. If you want to do any tours, John was there to help you find just the right tour to fit your needs.
The area is quiet and private, just what we wanted. No overcrowded beach, just the sound of the waves and a soft breeze. We walked the beach and rarely encountered anyone, we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves to explore.
I highly recommend Hobbies Hideaway for a restful vacation. You are just minutes from town if you want to eat out or shop and the beautiful beach at the apartment when you don't. Hobbies provides the best of both. We meet people in town from all over the world. The Honduran people we meet were friendly and helpful. The street vendors were pleasant and respectful when we said no thank you to them, we never felt put upon like at so many places we have visited.
The apartment is not large, but clean and well equipped. We used the beach BBQ almost every night to cook, what a lovely way to end a great day. I almost forgot, they supply you with free coffee"

"Al and Sandra are the best owners a traveler could ask for! They pick you up from the airport and introduce you to the grocery shopping, very good also by the way. Then off to the house that is everything you could want. The house is very well supplied with everything you need and if you need something just ask. The property is great no rushing traffic, the beach is great with some of the best sunsets you will ever see. We can't wait to plan our next escape to Roatan and stay at this great place again."
