  • Great Location for a Stay in Roatan

    "We travelled with 3 more couples, the house was perfect for the week, the location is very good since it is close to West Bay and West End and there are a lot of options.. the island is very beautiful and the house was just perfect for us."

  • 2nd great stay!

    "This was our 3rd trip to Roatan and 2nd stay at Castaway's. This is the perfect spot- there is so much to do right outside the door. Great snorkeling within swimming distance from the house and the main reef and mangrove tunnels are easily accessible by kayak. Dennis and Marcia are great hosts and provide lots of helpful information about activities, dining, and shopping options. They even lent us a spear and filet knife so we could do our part to help control the lionfish population! Make sure to bring or buy sugar for the hummingbirds- they are great entertainment! We love Roatan and can't imagine a better spot to stay on the island."

  • Unforgettable meeting of the fireflies

    "We had 2 1/2 wonderful weeks at Sea Pool Villas and want to thank Brigitta and Jaw for that incredible time. Both were present whenever we needed something or had a question. Even in beforehand, long before the trip started the communication was very deep and we got many interesting information about where to go, what to do and (very important) that we should rent a 4WD because of the many dirt roads on Roatan. The villa itself, the whole ground and especially the sea pool with the palapas was beyond our expectations and the pictures never can show the real loveliness. Jaw brought us fresh friut directly from the garden whenever there was something ripe. In the garden there are so many flowers, the colours of the blossoms, the varieties of green (garden) and blue (sea) are just breathtaking. On some evenings you could see fireflies in the garden and one could have the impression of fireworks, it was so many - just unforgettable. The corals and fish you could see when entering the sea directly at the sea pool where so magnificent, we even saw some lion fish (we are just snorkling). We also didn't expect such a comfortable climate with rather low humidity and mostly a calm wind. The restaurants we can recommend mostly are Cal's (which is just 5 minutes away and has a great athmosphere and of course great food), La Sirena (at Camp Bay, incredible location over the water) and Gio's (at French Harbour, the King Crab is just fantastic). We would highly recommend thos domicile to everyone seeking a relaxing holiday with utmost privacy and a private direct access to the carribean sea. We are traveling around the world since more than 20 years and never had hosts like Brigitta and Jaw - thank you so much for that wonderful time!"

  • Nearly as we expected

    "As for the positives, the other reviewers were spot on. The lack of other tourists and thus the peace and quiet was amazing. That, coupled with still being close to the necessities, makes the location nearly unbeatable. Just know that you will be removed from most other signs of humanity, and I personally would under no circumstance try and drive back to the house at night, especially after a couple of libations. You'll find out why after the first time you head down the dirt road and across the wooden road through the mangrove. The only downside, and I really wrestled with docking a star for this, is that the bug situation is no joke. Besides scuba diving (which was great), the other thing I was really looking forward to was sitting out on the deck at night, having a drink, and enjoying the tranquility. The sun set at about 6pm, and shortly after that the insects would appear. My wife was pretty squeamish with the various bugs flying around, and my Kindle screen was a magnet for all sorts of interesting (but annoying) creatures. By the end of our stay we unfortunately found ourselves inside more than we would have liked. We also had to keep the door to the kitchen closed because of the sheer number of insects that would have taken up residence with it open. Perhaps screening-in the deck, like the house two doors down, would be a solution. We gladly would have given up some of the view in exchange for some relief from the bugs. Maybe the insects won't bother you, but it was a little disappointing for us. As for the sand flies, the little red welts left by them don't itch, but they're not a good look for most people. The local bug spray in the blue bottle seemed to work, but it's also oil-based so you might keep the bugs away but you'll be asking for a serious sunburn. We went with the deet-based alternatives, and you're going to want to use it early and often. Two other tips: - I'm not sure how anyone could sleep on the bottom floors with the windows open and not get eaten alive by the bugs. We immediately opened the windows when we arrived, and within a couple of hours we had mosquitos and other guests in both downstairs bedrooms, despite the screen on the windows. Perhaps this isn't an issue on the top floor bedroom, but it certainly was downstairs. - The Trooper is no longer a rental option, but you'll need 4WD. Work with Liz ahead of time and she'll find you an alternative."

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.

Activities and Attractions near Honduras Villas

Tegusigalpa has a beautiful historic city center. Colonial architecture can be seen in a number of the ancient buildings. Just outside of the city on one of the hilltops is a relatively new monument known as the Christ of the Picacho. From the monument site, you can enjoy great views out over the city. 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. The Copan Ruins Archeological Park houses some impressive structures which give testament to the advancement of the Mayan culture. There is an Acropolis, the Court of the Heiroglyphic Stairway, and the Great Plaza.

There are several national parks and wildlife reserves where you can hike nature trails or join a guided overland tour. Canopy tours through the rainforest are quite popular. There are also various boat trips or kayaking excursions that can be enjoyed down the country's major rivers. There are also caves to go exploring. The beaches in Honduras are legendary and the Bay Islands are a tropical paradise. The coral reefs off the Bay Islands offer excellent scuba diving and snorkeling.

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. There are daily scheduled flights that operate to Miami in the U.S. For travelers staying in other parts of North America and Europe, your best flight options will be to get a connection via Miami. The airport is served by buses and taxis which can take you in to the city center. If you will be visiting the coastal regions, you can get a connecting domestic flight as this is the most convenient way to travel around the country. Roatan has a cruise ship port and many visitors arrive in the country here.
