"We enjoyed an amazing week at Henrietta's peaceful and lovely home on the laid back island of Roatan. I can't say enough about the relaxing atmosphere, the beautiful view and the amazing snorkeling available at this property. In addition to all of the above, we kayaked in the Bight, hiked the scenic road up to main road, and alternately relaxed and watched the calm ocean or were exhilarated by the crashing surf. It was a truly beautiful place to stay! Special thanks to Henrietta and Norma and her family for making sure we had everything we needed!"Guest: RK Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 7, 2014View listing
"We just got back. The condo was very nice to stay in. The kitchen was capable to cook up meals (bring your own spices, sugar and salt; nothing is there) , the bed was very comfortable, the internet was quick, the resort was nice. If you are going to do a lot of cooking take a taxi to the Aldons ($30) to get stocked up. If your just going to do the basics the strip mall grocery store within walking distance will suffice. (just don't buy the pudding it was spoiled) The store also has a nice breakfast, was kind of interesting eating breakfast in the middle of a grocery store. We bought bread, peanut butter, jelly, pop, liquor and snacks from them. We used the dive shop at the resort for shore dives every day, $22 a dive. It was nice to be able to dive on your own and see and go on your own pace. There is two reefs, one at about 15 to 20 feet deep about 75 yards out and then about 50 yards of sand (look for flounders and rays here) and then a reef at about 30ft that goes down to about 80ft. We seen green eels, turtles, scorpion fish, lion fish (didn't have a spear), shark, starfish, lobsters and a ton of various fish including large grouper. We did not do a boat dive, we enjoyed the shore diving so much. We ate at the numerous restaurants along the beach every night. Each displays their specials on a sign as a you walk by. Happy hour from 4p to 7p everynight. There was live music or movies on the beach to keep you entertained. At the restaurant "bite on the beach" which is on the water, they have large green eels you can see while eating dinner. The best entertainment was the beautiful sunsets every night. Talking about food, "banana donut", is a saying every visitor will recognize, he was even at the airport when we were leaving. The pool was nice to lay around during the day, so was the beach, don't forget the sunscreen. The bugs never bothered us. The shuttle from the airport and back was a nice option. We only ate breakfast one day at the resort. It was good but expensive. We took several walks in the area, hilly and hot but very nice views. Most of the time the beach was quite quiet and relaxing. It got busy a few days for a few hours when the cruise passengers showed up but it was not overwhelming. The evenings were always quiet. We would stay here again. This beach area ranks up at the top of my list, especially if you like to shore dive."Guest: Russ W. Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: February 10, 2014View listing
"The Round House served as a great base for our Utila dive vacation. This was our fourth time on Utila, and for this trip we brought two friends so we needed a larger place than we usually rent. The Round House fit the bill, and as a bonus offered great, easily accessible snorkeling right out front. The "master bedroom" included two beds and an en suite bathroom. Our friends slept in this room and it worked well for them, although beware unless the breeze changes direction from it's norm you'll have to run the A/C at night in this room. It's simply on the wrong side of the house to get a breeze when winds are blowing in the usual direction. However the A/C was cold and cooled the room down quickly. We slept in the "smaller" room, but it was still quite large and included a dresser and a closet that spanned the length of one wall so there was ample room to keep a week's worth of clothing, swimsuits, etc. It received enough of an ocean breeze that we ended up closing the windows and turning on the A/C just because there was a fine spray from the water. The kitchen was very well stocked with cooking utensils, pots, pans, plates, cups, etc. - one of the four of us cooked breakfast every morning and lunch every afternoon very easily. The Blue Bayou area is quite nice, home to several rental properties, and is one of the few places on Utila with snorkeling from the beach and a shore dive. You can walk right out from the beach in front of the house and see all sorts of cool things - eagle rays frequent this area and at night we saw a couple of octopi. I would say though you have a little bit less privacy than some of the other areas of the island and you also really are better served if you rent wheels of some sort (bikes, golf cart, scooter, etc) if you plan on diving with a shop in town every day. We always dive with Alton's, which happens to be the dive shop farthest away, but if you dive with Coral View or Laguna Beach you basically just have to walk across the street. Two of our party were able to rent tanks from Coral View for a shore dive off the house. You could also walk to Gunter's EcoMarine dive shop since it's not to far on the other side of the public beach, it would probably be around 20 minutes."Guest: mrsjetset Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 29, 2014View listing
"We spend 8 nights at DG Coral Vista in July 2014, and the experience was great. The house is in the perfect location; close enough to the beach (5 minutes walk) and places to eat and far enough for the noise. The ocean view from the balcony is breathtaking, making totally worth it climbing the 107 steps to get to the house (very easy to climb). The house is very comfortable; fully equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, and 4 AC that keep it cool during the hot summer days. A highly recommended place for a family vacation, and I will totally choose DG Coral Vista instead of renting a room in the crowded and busy resorts in West Bay. It worked really well for our family and we have there everything we need to have a fantastic vacation. The owners and property manager were in permanent contact with us before and during our stay, always willing to help and assist us on whatever we need. Gabriela was fantastic in providing us with all the information we needed (arrival, transportation, good places to eat, other logistics, etc.) and in making sure that we have everything we needed to enjoy our time at DG Coral Vista. Definitely, I highly recommended place to stay if you decide to spend your vacations at West Bay, Roatan."Guest: Pablo O. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 6, 2014View listing
Honduras Travel Tips
Seasons to Visit Honduras Vacation Rentals
The climate in Honduras varies in the different regions. While it is generally tropical, the weather is cooler and more temperate in the higher mountain regions. Generally, you can wear lightweight cotton clothing all year long. You will need a good rain jacket especially if you are traveling in the wet season. Make sure that you also have one or two warmer items of clothing if you plan to visit the highlands. Typically, the wet season is from May to October. Tropical storms have been known to blow across from the Caribbean, bringing heavy rain and strong winds. The north coast is one of the most popular tourist regions; however, temperatures can get very hot and visitors are advised to use plenty of sunscreen and wear hats. The most popular travel season is during the drier months which are from November through April.

Another city that has well-preserved colonial architecture is the former capital of Honduras, the city of Comayaguan. Here you can roam the cobbled streets, visit the town plazas and see the quaint white-washed houses. Each year for Easter, there is a week-long celebration that is full of cultural festivities. If you have an interest in the ancient Mayan culture, one place you must visit is Copan.

Getting to Honduras Beach Houses
Honduras is located in Central America just to the north of Nicaragua and east of Guatemala. The capital city Tegucigalpa is located in the southern region of the country. The nation's main airport is located just three miles to the southeast of Tegucigalpa.
