Welcome to Villa Tranquila, a luxurious and convenient condo located poolside in the Sunset Villas development of West End. West End is the center of activity at night, as well as the home of most of the island’s dive shops. All of these are within easy access to all of these things by walking. In this villa, there is no need to rent a car, walking is the easiest mode of transportation.
The condo is beautifully decorated in a tropical island style, completely equipped with all of the amenities. We are owners who visit 3 months per year and continually upgrade and refresh our condo. We believe ours is the nicest in Sunset Villas. The kitchen is fully equipped with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, washer/dryer, cable TV, Stereo for iPhone/iPod, and intimate pool access outside your front doorstep. Condo patio features outdoor dining table and a propane Barbeque. There is Wi-Fi access included in the condo. Enjoy the comfort of this condo within the gated and guarded Sunset Villas/West End Resorts Development.
The instant quote for rent includes all island taxes, all electricity, water, cable TV, WiFi, pool, pool floats & off street parking. Our condo is wonderfully furnished, equipped & provides all the comforts any vacation home can provide. You will find other condos in our neighborhood that will be less expensive but you will find ours is well worth the expense if you would be able to see/experience the difference. Our continual upgrades provide the difference to your overall vacation experience. We are owners that spend 3 months per year at our condo keeping it perfectly upgraded and in a condition that we as owners want to enjoy ourselves. Many condos in our neighborhood only include an electricity allowance that will most likely cost a great deal more if you use air conditioning.
If you should decide to book with us, you will be overlooking & just a few steps from a beautiful infinity pool (the biggest in the West End) & walking distance to everything in the west end. I will also provide you with an 8 page document of tips & information we have learned in the past 10 years visiting the island. We will provide you with two island phones so you can keep in touch with each other while there and call home for just pennies. Our condo also includes WiFi if you should choose to bring your laptop, smartphone or notebook computer. Our island management company is available for any issues that may arise.
The condo is air-conditioned in all living areas and offers two large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed, closet, dresser with 6 drawers, and shades over all of the windows. The guest bedroom boasts 2 double-sized beds, en-suite bathroom, walk-in closet, and shades on all windows. Security bars are fitted on the back side of the condo where bedrooms and baths are located. A floor safe is available to store cash, passports and valuables. Many condo owners on the island charge additional fees for the electricity used during their stay. Our rental fee includes your electricity so you do not pay any additional costs for electricity. Power costs are extremely high on the island so renting a place that includes electricity saves you from a surprising parting cost when you leave the island.
A washer and dryer is located in the condo for guest use.
Take a swim in our beautiful private community pool, just steps from the condo or head to the beach for some snorkeling. Another of Roatan's beautiful white sand beaches is just a 10 minute ($3) water taxi ride to West Bay for beach bars, restaurants, paddle boats, parasailing, lounging on the beach or book reading. Water taxis run all day long to West Bay and West End.
The property is managed by someone who lives next door. Kirsty will orient you to our condo, provide you with 2 island cell phones for your use while on the island and is available for any condo issues.
Everything you need to enjoy your stay; restaurants, dive operations, shopping, and evening entertainment are all within easy walking distance.
We recommend our favorite dive operation, Roatan Divers. http://www.roatandivers.com

About Linda Quackenbush
As a scuba diving family from the Pacific Northwest, Roatan was on our list of places to visit and dive. With our first visit in 2006, we fell in love with the sea life, the beauty of the island and the people who live and visit. We hope you fall in love with the island as we have. When you book your vacation at our condo, owners will email a 6 page document filled with tips and valuable information gained from their experiences on the island.
Linda Quackenbush purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Linda Quackenbush chose Sunset Villas
We chose this property location for its close proximity to the pool and beautiful view of the ocean. The popular West End open air restaurants and shops, filled with friendly locals and tourists who enjoy the laid-back island lifestyle is just a few minutes walk.
What makes this Condo unique
Our condo front door, is just steps to a small dipping pool and 25 more steps down to a large infinity pool. Everything we need and enjoy is within easy walking distance from our small piece of paradise.

We stayed at Villa Tranquila Feb 5-19, 2018.
The villa is located within walking distance to the West End but is perfectly located resulting in a quiet and peaceful environment. The view of the ocean and a cup of coffee on the deck was a perfect start to every day.
The villa is well maintained and stocked with all the necessities.
Linda was so helpful in answering all of our questions about Roatan and provided us with pages of info which was incredibly helpful.
I immediately picked up on Linda’s love of Roatan and excitement to share her experiences. Linda pointed us in the direction of some wonderful restaurants and most importantly some wonderful people.
The minute we walked in we knew this was their home, not just a rental property.
Thank you Linda and Loyal for sharing your home with us.
We loved our stay and plan on returning next year.
We are so very happy you enjoyed your time on the island and our home! It is such a pleasure to know that you had the experience you hoped for. We all need a good break from our busy lives & we think Roatan is a great place to come for that! Thank you for choosing to stay at our place.
Nice clean condo with great view and pool
This is the second time we stayed here. The condo is spacious, clean, and nicely furnished. All was in working order. We really enjoyed the big pool.
Lovely! Thanks Jane for the review ... it's so nice to have guests enjoy our place enough to come again!
Everything was perfect. The Villa was very nice and clean and in a perfect location. From the minute we booked, Liz and Linda were emailing us and keeping us updated on everything. They sent us tips, lists of things we may possibly need, etc. They had someone waiting at the airport for us before we even made it through customs etc. I will definitely go again and if possible will stay at Villa Tranquila again. It was simply amazing!!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay & hope Roatan calls you back again!
Amazing stay at Villa Tranquila
My husband, myself, and our two girls, ages 3 and 6, had a wonderful stay at Villa Tranquila in Roatan. I will start off by saying how beautiful Roatan is. The people are extremely friendly and the water is truly unbelievable. We have been to many islands and the water in Roatan is truly spectacular. Villa Tranquila is located in West End, a cute little town full of great restaurants and shops. Everything is within walking distance from the Villa. The town has a very local feel to it and is not touristy at all, which we loved. The beaches in West End are good, but if you want to see the clearest water you can imagine, you have to go to West Bay, which is only about 5 minutes away on a water taxi. Definitely worth the trip. Since we had two small kids with us, it was definitely easier to just stay in West End. We found an amazing beach just steps from the Villa. It is located at the Buccuneer restaurant. They clean the beach each morning, they provide chairs and umbrellas, and even nice large beds, and all you have to do is order a drink once in a while. We ordered the most delicious smoothies for the girls for $2 each. Also ordered them lunch for $5. Most of the time, we had the beach all to ourselves. Water is very clear, warm, and shallow. There is also a dock, which is fun. Literally the perfect place. When we were done with the beach, we would walk back to the Villa and take a dip in the huge pool located right outside the condo. Most of the time, we were the only ones at the pool as well. More about the condo: the Villa comes with everything you can possibly need. The kitchen is fully stocked - pots, pans, coffee maker, tea kettle, all dishes, all utensils, can opener, cheese grater, etc. Basically anything you would have at home, is there. Lots of paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, hand soap, etc. You do not need to buy anything else, just food. We stopped at a grocery store on the way from the airport and bought food. We used the kitchen every morning to make breakfast. Very convenient. In addition, there was a fruit/veggie truck that came right by the Villa with fresh fruit and veggies. The watermelon, bananas, apples, green peppers, were all so delicious and fragrant. We were also able to buy some fresh caught red snapper from some locals for very cheap and grilled the fish on the grill at the condo. I would recommend this condo to anyone who enjoys having the conveniences of home and who loves having a pool and beach to themselves.
Thanks so much, Yelena for the wonderful review of our condo! We so appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with others & to let us know as well. We are thrilled you had a wonderful time and that you found our condo so well equipped and comfortable. We work hard at keeping things up to date and fresh for ourselves and our guests. We welcome you back any time.
Wonderful tropical paradise with luxury comfort
Me and my husbond, two friends with a 18 month child had a wonderful time in a very well equiped Villa Tranquila. Enjoyed the great pool, the Beach, the restaurants, snorkeling, swimming and just getting our pulse right Down, where it more often should be :-)
Everybody we met on the Island was very friendly, and we felt very welcome and secure evrywhere. Thank you for a perfect stay.
Delightful Month at Villa Tranquilla from the Madison, WI Bells
Villa Tranquilla is a wonderfully appointed unit with all the housekeeping essentials for our delightful month stay. The large pool is a fun gathering place for the entire Sunset Villa owners.
The property is located off the street of a row of seven two story condos. It overlooks the pool, the veranda has a view of the ocean, and a nice breeze flows through the house, with the air of four fans which easily eliminated the use of the air conditions in each room.
Villa Tranquillo is a first lower level condo of a three story condo that overlooks the pool, a second story patio, with a dipping pool, and a small 10 room hotel attached.
The neighborhood of Sunset Villa is located at the quiet end of the West End village, a six block beach front of restaurants, gift and dive shops. At the street entrance to our area is a well maintained ocean beach area to enjoy a great sunset.
Linda provided us with a 9 page “Tips we’ve learned from the Island!” And it was perfect. Roatan Life, the onsite management company, were prompt to deal with our requests and provided great transportation for us.
We are so delighted you enjoyed your month long stay and appreciate your feedback and email updates during your stay. We hope you consider returning to this beautiful island and our condo. Safe travels....Linda & Loyal
