We have made special arrangements with dive shops available for our renters. Some will pick up right at the dock in front of the house! Others will pick up via land vehicle if you choose not to rent a car. We can help with discount car rentals if desired, shopping, restaurants and many other aspects of enjoying island life. When you arrive on the island, you'll be greeted by our on-island vacation rental manager who keeps an eye on the property and is a great resource for any questions or needs. For rentals of one week or more, we provide airport transfers to the house if you choose not to rent a car. We have a minivan available at the house for rental at a modest fee, please inquire after booking.

We bought this home when we fell in love with Roatan, and know you will feel right at home there, too. Feel free to email or call with any questions, and we'll answer or get back to you right away. Please note that if you book via American Express, we will pass their fee through to you, approximately 3%, deducted from your deposit refund. There are currently no credit card charges with other cards.

About Johanna and Henrik, Tom and Gloria

We're two couples (wives pictured) who bought this lovely home together to enjoy vacations and share it with others when we can't be in Roatan! Tom and Glo live in Westchester, NY; Johanna and Henrik live in Seattle. We met on a dive trip in Roatan, became fast friends, and on our next visit to the beautiful island, went house-hunting together and became business partners!

Johanna and Henrik, Tom and Gloria purchased this house in 2017

Why Johanna and Henrik, Tom and Gloria chose Sandy Bay

We bought this house because it's right on the beach--we can strap on our fins, grab a snorkel, and be right on the reef in seconds. It's got a gorgeous kitchen for cooking and entertaining. And with so many bedrooms, there's room to bring family and friends, with everyone having their own space as well as coming together for meals and play.

What makes this house unique

We're located just steps from the water, a quarter mile from the dolphins at Roatan Institute of Marine Sciences, and have several diving and sightseeing operations nearby so everything is convenient. We're a short drive or taxi ride from the restaurants and shopping of West End, but have life on the beach down to a science--and have mastered the art of R&R.

Sandy Bottom

  • 4 of 5

8 of us stayed at the house and had a wonderful time in Roatan. Kitchen was well supplied with all cooking needs and the BBQ grill was great. Beach, due to recent storms, was not quite what we expected but by the last few days of our trip we entered the ocean just west of the house for beautiful snorkeling. We would definitely return to the location and house. Nice eating places close by and plenty to do or not if you prefer quite solitude.

Great value and convenient location close to our new favorite dive shop, Octopus Dive School💳

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice and spacious especially for 4-6 people but it can comfortably sleep 8 in beds (1 bed not enclosed in its own room). Though the water view is great, our only disappointment was the beach in front of the house. With Roatan having record rainfall before our trip, the beach wasn't usable for what we wanted (lounging, exercise, beach games, etc), and we were fairly warned by the owners of this. Granted, we were scuba diving every day, so it didn't matter! Snorkeling in front of the house is great once you get through the sea grass to the reef! Johanna and the rest of the owners were also great in helping us plan our trip.

Owner's Response: Hi Sara, Glad you enjoyed the house. We try our best to make the visit the best possible. Sorry about the beach. As we mentioned, last year's rainy season was unprecedented. As soon as it was cleaned, more rain fell. Everything is pristine and beautiful now. Hope you consider us again when thinking of an island adventure. We would love to welcome you back. Wishing you and your family a wonderful year. Regards, Gloria & the Sandy Bottom team
