Toucan Blue is a beautiful beach house and can be your vacation home with a spectacular view. There are four bedrooms but rates are flexible if only one, two, three, or all four bedrooms are required. You will still have exclusive use of the home and the bedrooms not required will simply not be made up or accessible. It is approximately 20 kilometers east of the Roatan International airport, mid-island on the scenic north shore in Milton Bight. The water of the Caribbean is just steps from the front door and the second largest barrier reef in the world is approximately 300 meters before you. Enjoy the serenity as you look out upon the sea and the never tiring view.
Roatan, one of the Bay Islands of Honduras, is included in the book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die by Patricia Shultz. For years, Roatan was known mainly to divers for the exquisite diving adventure around the barrier reef. Now there are many more options for tourists to enjoy and cruise ships regularly include Roatan as a port. English and Spanish are the languages of the island, and US currency is accepted.
Toucan Blue is perfect for divers, snorkelers, family, or friends. It is a single family home with main living areas and four private bedrooms with flexible rates depending on the number of guests. You will have exclusive use of the home and the bedrooms not required will simply not be made up or accessible. Escape the tourist crowds for the solitude, peace, and tranquility of Toucan Blue.
There are only three other homes on the white sand peninsula that share the dock with Toucan Blue, with security on site. At the end of the dock there is a thatched palapa with benches—a great place for morning coffee at sunrise or beverages at sunset. From the palapa setting, both sunrise and sunset can be events.
The house is decorated in lively Caribbean colors and each room has ceiling fans and air conditioning, if needed. The bright, open main floor on the upper level includes the living area, kitchen, dining, half bath, and huge deck. The large sapphire blue bedroom with private bathroom/shower is also on the upper level with patio doors opening to the deck. It may not be well suited to small children.
There are indoor/outdoor speakers for music while upstairs in the house or on the deck. There is Direct TV (basic plan) and DVD player for those times that you want to be indoors, and you can keep in touch other others using the wireless internet connection. There are many books, games, puzzles, music and movie choices at the house for your enjoyment.
The large, covered, ceramic tiled outdoor deck is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the tranquil setting and endless view. It is likely the place that you will spend most of your time while at the house. It is also a great place to laze in the hammocks, listen to the waves breaking over the reef, watch the hummingbirds at the feeder, or sit by the railing and gaze at the star filled sky at night. The roof extension over the deck helps keep it cooler by blocking some of the afternoon sun.
The patio table seats six with another table and chairs for additional deck seating/dining available. The BBQ grill is handy adjacent to the kitchen, in a separate deck area. A local cook is available for a nominal fee if you are interested in having island meals prepared at the house.
The lower level includes the large emerald green bedroom with private bathroom/shower, and the two other bedrooms that share a full bathroom with tub/shower. There is a laundry room with full size washer and dryer. An outdoor shower is available to wash off the sand before entering the home.
Enjoy the stunning views of the Caribbean Sea from this vacation home, paddle the sea inside the barrier reef in the two provided sea kayaks, stroll the white sand beach, view sea life from the dock, or gently swing in one of the hammocks on the deck.
For divers, a Subway dive shop is located at nearby Turquoise Bay Resort.
Toucan Blue was recognized in July 2011 for a 'Rated Excellent' digital badge. 'This exclusive award recognizes outstanding vacation rentals based on reviews from past guests.'
Our property managers will meet you upon arrival and escort you to the house, stopping at the supermarket on the way. They will familiarize you with Toucan Blue and surroundings, and will be available for any questions you may have while you are a guest. There is a local cell phone at the house for use during your stay that will be loaded with some usage minutes. Additional minutes can be added by purchasing a phone card from places displaying the Claro sign, or at the Claro store in French Harbour. This is an inexpensive way to call home instead of using your personal cell phone.
Island attractions include zipline/canopy tours, botanical gardens, golfing at the new Black Pearl golf course designed by Pete Dye, and water sports of all kinds. Roatan is a diver’s paradise, but you can also snorkel, swim with dolphins, kayak…or just relax. Enjoy the views of the crystal clear water in various shades of blue and the lush green hills from overlook vistas.
You will need a vehicle to get around and explore the island. We strongly recommend renting a 4-wheel drive vehicle and can provide contact information for a preferred rental company.
