CASA CARIBE is a highly secluded one-of-a-kind BEACHFRONT home on a private 3-acre jungle-adjacent estate with 360 degree views overlooking the Ocean & Barrier Reef, Politilly Bay and the Jungle canopy.
Whether you're looking for extreme privacy, a honeymoon hideaway, family vacation or group retreat, find it here. A private Pool & Hot Tub with sunset views and numerous hammocks will keep you relaxed in this paradise.
We make SCUBA easy. The nearby dive shop will pick you up by boat from our private dock, or if you own all your own equipment, you can shore dive from the house.
Price includes the entire 3-story home and access to the full estate grounds and property.
**Additional rooms are available Per Room at a nearby property if your group is larger**
Our concrete constructed beach home is at water's edge with 2 private beaches in Politilly Bight overlooking the turquoise colored waters of the Bay & Caribbean and all the way around to the luscious green canopy of the Jungle. The 3-acre property is fully fenced, gated and locked and the home & main yard are separately gated within. Surrounding neighbors all have multiple acre properties ensuring your privacy and solitude for ultimate relaxation.
Unlike most properties on the island **ALL WATER IS DRINKABLE** coming from any faucet on the grounds as it is double sand filtered, ozonated and filtered by UV light, making it completely safe and drinkable. No need for bottled water or worrying if it is safe. You can even drink the hose water!
For your comfort and convenience, our on-site Caretaker will be available to assist you with any needs at the property. He stays in our caretaker's residence at the East end of our property. The grounds and home are also monitored by an offsite security company through an alarm system.
Upon arrival you will be greeted by our caretaker with fresh coconuts. Anything you need, he is always just a phone call or holler away. Whether it's an early morning kayak launch or late night concern, he will be there to assist you! He is from nearby Milton Bight and he can regale you with stories and island history if you are interested. He is also able to assist you when donning your snorkel or scuba gear before getting into the water at our beach or dock.
After coming inside, you'll find cold refreshments, fresh fruit and a few goodies to help you recover from your flight to our island-paradise!
The Ground floor has a garage (locked) and laundry and utility rooms. In the Laundry Room you'll find a washer and dryer for your convenience.
On the 1st floor are the Bedrooms. Each Bedroom has its own AC system and separate ceiling fan to ensure maximum comfort.
--The Master Suite has a dreamy King Bed and very comfortable Double-size Futon. From the bed you can clearly see the Ocean and Pool and peeks of the Jungle just outside. There is a large walk-through closet and oversized bathroom, and just outside the private door is the pool deck!
--The 1st Guest Bedroom has a Queen Bed and a private doorway directly out to the pool deck. Views of the Ocean, Pool, Beach and Jungle can be seen from this room.
--The 2nd Guest Bedroom has a Queen Bed and 2 hand-carved rocking chairs. Views of the Jungle dominate the windows but the Ocean can easily be seen from this room also! The private exterior door opens onto the pool deck for easy access.
There is a shared bathroom just outside the 2 Guest Bedroom doors.
The Top Floor is an expansive open space with Chef's Kitchen, Dining Room, Sitting Area, and TV Lounge. There is also a 1/2 bath with toilet and sink adjacent the kitchen. Four extra-large fans with custom hand-carved wooden fan blades adorn the locally sourced Honduran Pine vaulted ceiling and compliment the six-foot wrought iron chandelier. Cook large family meals using state of the art appliances, granite counter-tops and a well-equipped kitchen. Or enjoy a good book in the Sitting Area, catch the big game on the new 55" LCD TV in the TV Lounge or sit out on the deck in a hammock gazing out over the turquoise waters. If grilling is your fancy, Mensen will happily bring the BBQ up from the garage for you to use just outside one of the kitchen doors.
Outside on the Top wraparound Deck you'll find several hooks to place one of the many hammocks you'll find on property. There is also a large hand carved wooden table on the Deck for outdoor eating. And finally you can bird watch using our binoculars, relax and read a book, take a nap or just stare out into the jungle while laying in one of the 2 hand carved lounge chairs on this Deck.
Down below on the Pool Deck you'll encounter 4 additional lounge chairs and a set of 4 folding teak chairs. There are benches near the Hot Tub and additional seating at the edge of the Pool. The Pool isn't heated, but you wouldn't want it to be in this tropical paradise. The adjacent Hot Tub can be adjusted to your preferred temperature and is covered so you can enjoy it even during a rainstorm.
Maid service once per week of your stay is included. It will be performed on the 3rd day after your arrival. Additional days of Maid service can be arranged for an added cost.
Daily on-site local meal preparation is available for an added cost.
Private charters can be arranged for nearly any activity. Our Property Manager, Liz Riggs, will assist with your arrangements.
Specifically, we encourage you to request a lunch trip to Gina's Cafe in the small village of Crawfish Rock, just 30 mins by boat (or 90 mins by car). Our native island-friends Virginia and Celso will treat you to an island feast unlike anything else you will experience on Roatan. The restaurant is only accessible by boat, 4x4 via the beach or by foot. A visit to Gina's is something you'll never forget!
The Master has a King Bed and a Double Futon. Each sleeps 2 adults (total 4 adults). Each Guest Bedroom sleeps 2 adults (total 4 adults). There is a Queen Air Mattress that sleeps 2 adults (total 2 adults). The QAM can be placed in Guest Room 1 or in the main living area on the Top Floor. There is also a sofa and a smaller futon in the main living area on the Top Floor and each comfortably sleeps a child up to about 10-12 years old (total 2 children). Full home capacity 10 adults + 2 children.
If partying is what you want to do, getting to the West End for big clubs and bars is just a cab ride away. Or if local music and dancing is more your style, we'll have a local guide take you to the neighboring village of Punta Gorda on Fri/Sat/Sun to dance the night away in a palapa on the beach, having the time of your life.
No matter the occasion, Casa Caribe is ready for your adventure!
