About the property

Beautiful Island Cabana: 3bd/2ba island home, one house back from the beach

We’ve taken our traditional island cabana and stuffed it with all modern amenities and finishes. Two years in the making but worth it!!

Just steps from your snorkeling dock and a great beach. Crisp, clean and relaxing. Your modern island paradise awaits!! This island home is one house back from beach surrounded by tropical plants, palms and mangoes galore! Sits about 100 ft back from beach and dock. It’s surrounded by jungle and also sits on a fresh water island stream (perfect for bird and wildlife viewing).

Modern meets Caribbean! Enjoy the natural world while also enjoying the creature comforts in our completely updated island home. The main floor of our unit includes a small, but fully modern kitchen, with eat-in breakfast bar, a spacious living area with a flat panel TV, two bedrooms and a full bathroom (with bathtub! - a rarity in most Roatan homes). The larger of the two main floor bedrooms has a queen memory foam bed with great ocean breezes. The second bedroom has two twin beds, which can be easily pushed together. The top floor includes a luxurious master suite. This "tree house" room includes a king-sized Serta pillow-top bed, flat panel TV, full wardrobe and barn doors leading to the master bath. The master bath includes a step-in shower and double vessel sinks. The top floor also has a sitting/yoga area with sliding glass doors leading to a small balcony with peak-a-boo views of the sea. All bedrooms have Air Conditioning. Ceiling fans throughout. The unit has 2 porch areas: a screened-in front patio with fold-out dining tables (in front of home) and fans, and the top floor balcony.

Free Internet, WiFi, satellite/ cable tv and use of our Roku units with Amazon, Netflix and Hulu plus many other content channels are included during your stay.

This is a three story building and our home occupies the top two floors. We have great neighbors below us, in a small two bedroom, one story unit.

Fully equipped kitchen that also includes use of an Instant Pot multi cooker, blender, coffee maker, juicer and food processor.

Two hammocks are available for our guests to use during their stay. One for the screened porch and the other for our dock.

As an added bonus through our property manager. You receive free day passes to The Mayan Princess Resort which includes free use of pool, beach, lounge chairs and parking in West Bay beach. This is the most popular beach on Roatan.

We loved that stayed! For a half apartments it’s really spacious super comfortable amd enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Vanessa (property management) and Jim and Misty (the Owners) all have great costumer service which made the stay wonderful with the little hiccups. The house is every clean and organized. I will say watch out for the bats that are outside the house door and the bees that get in the house. They house comes with a community dock which is very well kept. The VIEW IS AMAZING, breathtaking I hated to leave that behind! Definite will go back

Loved our stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location and size for us. Owner and manager were very helpful throughout, with great communication. Great amenities with access to Dock, pool and to a local resort on West Bay beach. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice property with easy access to the beach and great snorkeling.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay. The property was conveniently located and although not directly on the beach it was just a short stroll down to the beach. All bedrooms were comfortable with a great master bedroom on the top floor. The cabana was very clean with a well equipped kitchen. The reason I only gave this property 4 stars is that there is construction going on directly across the small road so we could not enjoy the screened in porch due to the constant hammering. Luckily we were away for most of the day diving or snorkeling. This property has great access to the reef right out in front if you don’t mind swimming out to the reef. If you hug the wall you will see amazing numbers of trigger fish, and schools of many other fishes. We saw barracuda and amazing eagle rays! Just beautiful!

Beautifully remodelled cabin

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay here!

The house is small but recently remodelled with high quality materials. Large windows and white walls give you a sense of amplitude. The master bedroom and bathroom is SUPERB and very well made! You will love waking up here

The kitchen has all your needs. Everything in the house worked fine. The price is great for the property.

Communication with both the owners and property manager was super easy and straightforward, thank you for everything!

The beach (Sandy Bay) is one house away, the dock is really nice to go hang a hammock, or jump off the second floor dock. We went snorkelling 150m from the dock (you have to swim through a grassy patch) and it was a beautiful snorkel, however the main reef is too far out for a swim.

There are not many restaurants close by (theres about 2 walking distance). Most activity is in West End, about a 10min taxi ride (not expensive if you jump on the communal taxis about $2/pp).

The airport is 10-15mins drive, the ferry about 20mins drive.

The neighborhood is quite and nice. The beach is nice to go out for a walk, but be careful wear water shoes as my wife got her foot injured pretty bad from a re-bar that was in the beach 5mins from the house...

This house will not be suitable for someone with walking problems as you have to go up stairs.

Lovely house close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

It is a lovely house and was perfect for our family of 4. It was very comfortable and convenient. It was within walking distance of a wonderful restaurant called The Salty Mango. It was an easy drive to all of the places we wanted to go in Roatan. We would definitely stay there again!!! The owners were very helpful and gave us wonderful advise!
