Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Lower Level (Sleeps 2), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our home is a beach front property right on West Bay Beach in Roatan. Which was voted 'Top 5 Most Beautiful Beaches' and 'Top 20 Places to Retire' and 'Top 10 Dive Spots' in the World by USA Today. Roatan was also recently featured by The New York Times as “53 Places to Go in 2008”, and in the Wall Street Journal as a “Hot Spot for 2008”.

This is a two level home. You may rent the entire home or by individual levels. The upstairs unit accommodates 6 people. The downstairs unit accommodates 2 people. The upstairs level has two full bathrooms and a separate kitchen. The downstairs level also has two full bathrooms and a separate kitchen. A cook and cleaning lady can be available to you for an additional fee per day. Nancy has worked with us for over twenty years.

There are lots of beach chairs and floaties to lounge in the sea downstairs; there are books, chess, checkers, family board games, and more, available for family time and repose.

Enjoy the Caribbean right at your feet. Literally! A private beach with clear aquamarine water and an azure sky await you. Lush tropical plants and verdant flowers surround this villa designed to blend in with nature. Hammocks string from palm trees and sunsets flash a very incredible green, briefly in the afternoon. You can take just three minutes to swim out into the world's second largest barrier reef, a very safe and tranquil underwater adventure! Or take a ten minute walk to Gumbalimba National Park, which has an Insectarium and offers a walk through a Tropical Bioreserve, 'Snuba' Diving for Kids, and Canopy Tours on Zip Lines. Whatever you want to do, whether taking it easy, or having an adventure, it's all right on West Bay Beach.

The view from our Emerald Beach House is breathtaking and calming. The deck is one of the best places to enjoy the sunset and the breezes and sounds of the Caribbean. Windows along the home make this a very bright and open villa, the only one privately available with a veranda overlooking the ocean on west bay beach.

This is the place where you don't have to do a thing, just relax or take a siesta in one of our hammocks, or snorkel and scuba dive and experience one of the top places to dive in the world, with its abundance of beautiful locales and affordable rates. Come and enjoy our Emerald Beach House! Always happy to answer any questions, thanks!

About Maritza Kennedy

Come enjoy our lovely beachfront home! I am a retired Doctor who built this house in 1998. My family and I love scuba diving, traveling, and we fell in love with this magnificent beach. We hope you can see this piece of paradise, too.

Maritza Kennedy purchased this house in 1998

Why Maritza Kennedy chose West Bay Beach

Our unique access to the beach and our well-kept home make us an unforgettable experience. We have the best access to the beach and the water! No need to plan a walk down to the beach, we are right there, just a few seconds walk. We are also the only house with a private beach front garden area on West Bay Beach. You will have privacy on one of the world's best beaches and time to kick back and relax and enjoy yourself.

We have also been renting our home out for over fifteen years! Friends and family have stayed with us over the years, countless times, and because we were the first villa on the beach, you can also get the unique experience of our beautifully designed beach-front villa and garden! Enjoy your time here with the best access and the best privacy!

And our story has always been one of love for the reef and the water, the people, and the culture. Our family and house are known to locals, and you will truly have a unique experience with our beautiful home. Come see why we have been coming since 1998!

What makes this house unique

When you visit Roatan it is all about location.

Our home is located right on one of the best beaches in the world. We are one of two private homes right on West Bay beach. The beach is right there your feet and along the beach you have Flora, Fauna, Cuisine, Diving, Resorts, Pools, Massages, Shopping, and more. Not to mention the second largest reef is just a three minute swim out. But even so, it still is a quiet and tranquil and unique place. We hope you enjoy.
