The owners, Al and Pam Kuck, live in northeastern Wisconsin in the United States. Al is a retired animal geneticist for one of the largest cattle breeding organizations in the country and Pam, also retired was an educational consultant working with school districts and state departments of education around the country. They have three grown daughters, and seven grandchildren who live worlds apart in Wisconsin and Australia. The family tries to gather annually in Roatan for reunions. They have enjoyed boating and water skiing all their lives and especially love the warm weather of the island during Wisconsin winters.
Owner purchased this house in 2009
Why Owner chose Orchid Beach Village
The Kucks researched the many Caribbean Islands and found Roatan to be one of the most beautiful. It's lush tropical vegetation, white sand beaches, turquoise blue waters, sweet unaffected towns and pleasant local people made it a natural choice for them to purchase their home. The location of the Pink Orchid within walking distance from West Bay Beach (one of the world's most beautiful beaches) and West End (a diver's paradise) was important to them. There is something in the air on Roatan that makes visits unforgettable and draws one back again and again...perhaps the old-world charm of a time long forgotten when life was slow, lazy, and peaceful was what attracted them to this tropical oasis. The addition of two cruise terminals and two new golf courses promise the island will continue to thrive and prosper. Al & Pam want to share their home when not in use so that you too can experience the lure of this unforgettable island paradise.
What makes this house unique
The Pink Orchid is uniquely situated in the neighborhood and on the island. The neighborhood is expanding, but The Pink Orchid is bordered on one side by a side lot that Al & Pam turned into a lovely garden oasis and on the other side by a natural creek and "green"area filled with coconut palms, banana trees and local flora. Thus the home sits away from the hustle and bustle of the neighborhood yet right on the water, a mini sanctuary in one of the most sought-after parts of the island. Its location is the other unique factor, because the house sits within walking distance the two most popular towns on the island: West End and West Bay Beach. And you can stand on the dock and flag down a water taxi if you don't feel like walking as they pass by all day long every 5-10 minutes. Lastly, because the house is located on the tip that faces westward, the sunsets are exquisite and something you never want to miss each evening. With a drink in hand and a few appetizers nearby, there is no better way to usher in the evening watching the sun sink in all its fiery glory!
