  • Living onto beach

    "Initially we booked Blue Bayou Beach House for 5 nights. We were attracted by the location right next to the coral reefs and of course an affordable price. And we weren't disappointed. The house has a beautiful porch from where you can hum right into the corals. Just outside the house is a great wall with the most amazing corals. Lots of coral fishes. The house is a bit rustic, however charming. There is though one nuisance: Sand flies! You don't notice them, before it's too late. You don't see them, you don't feel, when they bite, but you will seen see the impact of them on your body. So be advised to take need precautions (repellents, baby oil,...). Before making the booking, we had a very positive correspondence with the owners, Deanna and Ed. Very responsive and very helpful. We felt confident throughout the engagement with Deanna and Ed. On the island we were welcomed by Mike, who is kind of a janitor, and he made sure we were put on a taxi (or rather a tuc-tuc) to take us to the beach house. Mike also made sure, everything was ok during our stay. Thanks a lot to Mike!! We enjoyed our stay at Blue Bayou Beach House very much, and we actually extended with it another 2 nights. There are lots of things to do on Utila. Definitely a place to return to...."

  • Perfect location

    "Casa Ladera is a perfect location for a quiet retreat but just a short walk to all of the resteraunts and shops of west end, no car needed. Diving was perfect including the shark dive which is highly recommended. The kids liked swimming in the pool and watching the stars at night after a long day on the water. The multi level layout of Casa Ladera allowed for the kids to have their own space and for the adults to have their own space for "adult time". Definitely coming back!"

  • Wonderful Choice!!

    "We traveled with another family to Roatan for the 1st time and found these 2 houses to be the best place on the island. As there were 6 children (ages 12-17) and 4 adults, we had plenty of space to spread out. It was delightful to return to these homes and have our own personal oasis once we left the beach or sightseeing. The houses are on top of a hill, which we were able to see both coasts of the island. It is a very easy walk down to the beach but a bit of exercise to get back up. As our kids were old enough, it wasn’t a problem at all for us. Claudio was a pleasure to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. The maid/chef and pool boy were exceptional and kept the whole place immaculate. We had Linda cook for us 2 nights and the food was delicious and very reasonably priced for her to cook for 10 of us. We would strongly suggest having her cook. The entire vacation was extremely easy with the help from Claudio which included getting to the grocery store, finding a driver to sightsee (zip lining was AWESOME!!), places to eat and accommodated us for a later plane departure."

  • Peace and quiet on a private stretch of sand

    "If you are looking for North American luxury with room service and the works, you'll have to go elsewhere and spend three times as much. If you want to sleep right in the middle of the dance floor with DJ throbbing, head to Infinity Bay. However, if you want peace and quiet, unfettered views of the blue green sea from your private patio and your private beach, these villas will be home. The condo is separated from West Bay proper by the rocking outcrop of Las Rocas dive resort. It has its own a stretch of private beach, with the reef a few hundred yards offshore providing decent snorkeling and calm waters. There's a bit more eel grass here than in the heavily trafficked West Bay, but the solitude was well worth it. Being apart from West Bay was a blessing. Just a few minutes walking brought us right to the action, but we could easily escape the parties and throngs of holiday revelers. The unit we rented (Bayview 3b) was not super luxurious, but was perfectly comfortable and well appointed. We never once turned on the satellite TV, but it was an option. The kitchen had literally everything one might need (bakeware, fry pans, pots, blender, to-go mugs, coffee maker, lots of filtered potable water, etc). We self-catered nearly every meal, though many restaurants sit within easy walking distance. Our unit was on the ground floor with 3 steps going down to the beach. We spent nearly all of our waking hours either in the sand and sea, or on the porch. The porch is semi-gated, has a handful of lounge chairs, along with a large glass table and 6 chairs for the table. The porch was very well shaded in the afternoons, and midday, when sun was strong, we simply moved the lounge chairs under the trees (just in front of the condo, in the sand) to get shade. We highly recommend this condo to any and all travelers. It seemed especially nice for families (we brought our a 9-month old baby and his 75 year old grandma)."
