About the Property
Flexible rates renting 1 to 4 bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (sleeps up to 8)
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. You may be able to make arrangements to rent snorkeling gear from them to use during your stay.
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.'
The modern international airport welcomes direct flights from the US, with many more flights that connect through cities such as La Ceiba and San Pedro Sula on the mainland.
Our property managers will meet you upon arrival and escort you to the house, stopping at the supermarket on the way if you wish. 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.
To further enjoy the sights of Roatan, 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.
Rates are based on the number of guests and bedrooms required. One bedroom (1-2 guests) $1025; two bedrooms (2-4 guests) $1225; three bedrooms (3-6 guests) $1475; four bedrooms (4-8 guests) $1725.
Make Toucan Blue your home while experiencing the beautiful island of Roatan!

If you are looking for a secluded private paradise, Toucan Blue is the perfect destination. To reach the house you drive across a sturdy private bridge though a gorgeous mangrove forest that is bursting with life. If you stop and look you will see crabs, lizards, birds, and who knows what else! The sand is white, the water is blue, a one of a kind reef lies a short distance from the shore, and the area is private and peaceful.
The home is made for outdoor living and sitting on the covered porch staring out at the sea is hard to beat! We stayed during some of the hottest days of the year and found the shade and the breeze of the patio perfect! The rooms are very private and comfortable. If you want a peaceful getaway the property has everything you need to hide away for days. If you are looking for a home-base to return to after long days of exploring this beautiful home is situated near the middle of the island and not far from many exciting activities. The next property over is home to the popular Subway Dive Shop where you can contract for an afternoon of snorkeling or become scuba certified!
Amazing restaurants are a quick trip in either direction. You can find raked and manicured beaches close by if you want drink service while lounging near the water but the big hotels and tourist areas are a good bit away so you won't find crowds and chaos. This area of the island is for those looking to find their own path. When it was time to head for the plane home we all felt very sad to be leaving our beautiful and peaceful paradise.
