  • Our New Favorite Home on Roatan

    "This is truly one of those homes that you don't want to leave for the duration of your vacation. If you do venture out, it's within walking distance (not for the faint of heart) of West Bay or a two minute car ride, yet still feels very secluded and away from it all. I easily made our reservation through Ruth, via email, and was greeted by Sam and Brad when we arrived at their office to pick up the keys. Sam went to the house with us and showed us where everything was and explained how all the gadgets work, along with loaning us a local cell phone. This house is not short on entertainment. There are TV/DVD combos in every bedroom and a big screen television in the living room, with a small selection of DVDs. There's a speaker on the back patio to hook your Ipod/phone up to so you can have music while you're on the deck or in the pool. The stainless steel kitchen appliances are top notch and there's an additional stand alone ice maker that sits on the countertop. This home more than enough dishes, cookware, utensils, silverware and drinking glasses of all varieties. There were only two of us in the house and we chose the back bedroom, nearest the pool, because of the amazing view of the ocean. The bed was extremely comfortable and had high quality bedding. We always had adequate water pressure and plenty of hot water for showers in the adjoining bathroom. My favorite part of the house was the view from the deck. I never got tired of hearing the waves crashing on the rocks, just a few feet from the infinity pool. The constant breeze was a bonus and helped to keep the bugs away. Speaking of the pool, it's very clean, a nice temperature and is surrounded by plenty of chairs, loungers and nice plush beach towels. This is our fourth time renting on Roatan and I think we've finally found the house that we'll definitely rent again."

  • Great Location!

    "My family of four spent 8 nights at La Casa Gaviota Azul. Before we arrived, Jami sent us a map, directions and some very helpful links and suggestions. She met us upon arrival and we really appreciated her letting us check-in early as our youngest wasn't feeling well. The accommodations were very clean, comfortable, and updated with a seaside decor. We had all the comforts of home, nothing was missing. We loved being right on the beach in a quiet area, away from the more hectic (and hot!) West End/West Bay. The trade winds were strong while we were there, so we weren't able to snorkel near the house, but the dive boats anchored right outside daily, so I'm sure it must be fabulous. I was impressed with the local care takers who picked up trash along the beach, raked, and rinsed the salt and sand off the patio and windows. They were very friendly and even dropped off a conch shell for our girls one morning. The sheltered lagoon area at Parrot Tree Plantation has cabana beds, seating areas, and canoes for rent. The pool area was nice too! It's a great place to relax if you don't feel like heading out to explore the island, and it's close to the house. If you are here, as others have suggested, be sure to check out Cal's Cantina. The food was wonderful and priced right. Zip lining into Gumbalimba Park and the dolphin encounter at Anthony's Key were also big hits with the kids. There are other recommendations in the "house manual" and several guide books for you to browse through. I would definitely recommend staying here - you won't be disappointed!"

  • good vacation

    "The property is beautiful. It is much smaller than it appears in the pictures. It states it sleeps 12 which it does, however it does not sit near 12 people in the living room or at the dinning room table. It does not have a safe and we felt a false sense of security with the alarm system. Jewelry even though hidden was stolen as well as some clothes. There wasn't enough cutlery, beach towels or dishes we found. We often ran out of toilet paper as well. internet and power outages were often and not necessarily the fault of the property managers. We did have a generator so we were not without power but would not have AC or use of the dryer when there was outages. The house is very clean and has a beautiful ocean view. We were disappointed to find out the beach was not ours but for the community and was a short walk away. We wanted beach front. Brad was very helpful with everything. Having a maid who is also willing to cook the odd meal for you would be nice. Brad did provide us with that but her cooking skills lacked somewhat. We do recommend this property providing the owners get a safe. Bananarama was not a very helpful dive centre and didn't appear to care about your safety, needs or whether or not the had your business. With power outages restaurants were without power as well which lead to long delays and no light whatsoever to see what you were doing. Highly recommend Free radical catamaran boat tour. Amazing food and staff. Beautiful snorkelling everywhere. The dolphin swim was awesome. Remember you get what you pay for, so book with professional companies for fishing and diving."

  • Great Location in West Bay

    "Casa De Paradise was very well described. It is in an excellent location in West Bay. One of the best rental kitchens that I have even been in, with good knives even! I cook a lot on our vacations and I was lacking nothing. The front deck overlooking the beach was amazing. My husband was in the hammock every day. The fruit truck came every few days and we were able to walk down to the docks early in the morning and buy fish from the locals. We used Mayan Divers as suggested from the owners and had a great diving experience that was VERY convenient. We would walk up the beach every day and check out nightly dinner specials. Don't miss the $15 2 tail lobster dinner at Beachers two doors down. Unless you want to go cruising the island, you don't need a car. If you do, we walked down to "The Mall" and rented from Yony for $50/day. We stocked up at the grocery store on the ride in front the airport. This was a very easy, convenient and relaxing vacation for us at this location. The only reason I did not give a 5 star rating was because of the music from the resort next door. The people renting the other unit behind us did not hear it like we did, but we had to listen to the club music next door. If we would have been with a group of friends and drinking and chatting until 11pm, we would have thought nothing of it. However, we were ready for bed at 9p and our neighbors were not. Nice thing is that is stopped at 11pm on the dot each night. I did contact the owner regarding this and she responded very promptly and was concerned. However, each hotel and property is allowed to enjoy their music until 11pm. Like I said, I am sure that there are many vacationers that this would not even be an issue for. Tips or enjoying West Bay-1. Bring lots of small bills. You pay more when it is charged on your credit card and we tended to overpay for things because we did not have smaller bills. 2. Load a suitcase with some non-perishable food. They have the same things the US has in their stores, but so much more expensive. 3. Get it in your mind that you WILL get a massage! $20 for a 40 minute massage on the beach should not be passed up and get at least one or two while you are there! Casa de Paradise was a great place to be!"
