Bliss on the Beach is a beautiful 2 bedroom (+ loft) home set right on the waters edge in a private and secure site in the town of Oakridge. Easily accessible by car, Oakridge is part of the ‘real’ Roatan - it is a real Caribbean fishing village once home to many of the island shrimp and lobster boats. Within walking distance is a local grocery store, hardware store, bank and local bar! You might think of it as the Venice of the Caribbean as most of the homes and stores are set precariously over the water and many of the locals still travel by boat.
This traditionally made wooden house features full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, air conditioning throughout, and is fully furnished with all modern conveniences, including WiFi Internet and Cable TV. Two bedrooms have comfortable beds, and the loft has two double beds for additional sleeping. Two full baths.
Relax on the large sectional sofa and side chair catch up with reality on the flat screen TV with cable, or dine ‘al fresco’ on the large covered deck right in front of the house with a view to the azure Caribbean Sea and maybe even the mountains of the Honduran mainland on a clear day!
If scuba diving is your goal then we can arrange for one of the local dive shops to collect you from the on-property dock - it couldn’t be any easier!
Kayak or snorkel right in front of the house and swim in the sheltered lagoon area just a minutes’ walk away. The island of Roatan is surrounded by a reef. You can walk across the flats directly in front of our house to reach a 25' wall with spectacular snorkeling on a calm day.
Bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook, 6 species of jack, barracuda, lemon sharks, snappers, and the unusual black durgon triggerfish will all challenge your fly fishing skills. Some of the island's best guides are minutes away and will pick you up at the property's marina.
Perfect for a quiet and relaxing break for friends and family, Bliss on the Beach is set in tropical gardens and features a furnished ocean facing deck with comfy patio table and chairs for 6. Gas BBQ makes grilling easy! Relax on the beach in front of the house with chaise lounges and Adirondack chairs!
For no additional cost, upon your arrival our Property Managers greet you at the airport and escort you to Bliss on the Beach. If you would like to stop at one of the larger grocery stores en route, they are happy to do so. They are available 24/7 by phone to help make your stay the best it can be!
The island offers a large variety of restaurants. Enjoy some of the best within a 20-minute drive, or journey to the West End - the center of tourism - enjoy all that it has to offer, or relax in the beauty of our blissful location cooking fresh fish and veggies, or whatever you desire! Local fishermen oftentimes are selling their day's catch almost at your doorstep! Many guests have requested certain types of fish from the local fishermen. Although not all requests can be met, you are certain to find the locals to be as accommodating as possible!
The cost of food in the grocery stores is similar to that in the U.S. And you will be impressed to see many of the same labels and foods that you have at home!
The 30 - 40 minute drive from the airport to our community traverses across the paved highway road and concludes on newly-concreted roads right up to our gate! Not all communities are this easily accessed!
The cost of electricity on the island is very high, therefore electric meter will be read at the beginning of your stay and when you check out. At the end of your stay you will pay for your KWH used.
