About Owner/Manager

My wife and I are former medical professionals, now business owners who discovered Roatan while on a medical mission with our church. We simply fell in love with Roatan and hope to live in our home permanently when we retire.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2007

Why Owner/Manager chose First Bight

We wanted a quiet private tropical place on the ocean to escape the fast pace hustle and bustle in the states, a place where we can read in peace and sleep with no other sounds, but the ocean. And still the ability to go the other side of the island where there are more activities.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time in Roatan. I swear we drove down every road on that island! The house was wonderful. We spent alot of time reading books on the porch or on the beach. The kitchen was so well equipped that we fixed almost all meals right there. And if it wasn't raining we ate at the table on the porch. We took a kayak out on First Bight, and checked out Parrot Tree Plantation across the way. We went to Half Moon Beach in West End twice and did the South Shore canopy zipline tour. We found the meat market in French Harbour and got some nice steaks to cook on your big grill. We bought a bag of sugar and Linda whipped up some hummingbird juice and kept them feed all week. At night bats would drink from the feeders too!

We met some very nice people at the craft market in Coxen Hole. And we made friends with Penny who owns Serenity gift shop near French Harbour.

So thank you very much for letting us share your corner of paradise. Maybe we will be able to go there again some time.

Stunning Views, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is not our first time staying down in the area, but is our first time renting this fantastic large home. The location is out of the way but close to the action if that is what you wish for. Views from the deck are nothing but beautiful Caribbean sea! The house is large and suited to accommodate bigger parties, in our case however it was just the two of us. All in all great experience from reservation to Frank (the property manager) and Aberto (the onsite caretaker). Of note, I would recommend a vehicle and an SUV or small truck. The road in can be rough as it is graded only a couple of times per year. Besides you will want to explore the island as well. Enjoy!

Beautiful views in a comfortable setting!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great property and the location is incredible for snorkeling (if the ocean is calm enough) and enjoying the views on the beautiful porch. Our favorite spot in the mornings and evenings was the hammock swings! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you'll need to cook your meals and the main living areas were comfortable. The master bedroom was nice and the king size bed was super comfy. The bathroom was adequate with a large walk in shower. The other three bedrooms and baths were in the basement and it was moldy smelling and dark down there so our son chose to sleep on the couch. There is plenty of space, it just wasn't very inviting if I'm being honest. There was a rooster that woke us up constantly by crowing all night long outside the bedroom window. It helped if the AC was running but we could still hear it and it was maddening - we did tell the property manager Mac when we left and he said he'd try to take care of it. Mac was great - he met us at the airport, took us to the grocery store and got us set up at the house - then we had cell phones with his number preprogrammed into them so if there were any problems we could call him right away. The road to the house is pretty rough so if you're renting a car I recommend an SUV so you don't bottom out - but it's not critical, you'll still get there but it's a bumpy ride. The space is very private, which we loved, and Alberto (who only speaks Spanish) is a constant friendly presence in the caretakers cottage which made us feel extra safe. Overall we loved our stay at the Coral Beach House and plan to return in a few months!

Coral House

  • 5 of 5

Truly a "home away from home". The house was very comfortable and there was plenty of room for our family of six. We LOVED the view, shaded areas to relax, the pool, access to snorkel and scuba dive right from the house. The grocery store had everything we needed and we cooked most meals at the house using the BBQ grill or stove/oven. All worked great.

The constant breeze kept the need for bug repellent to a minimum and the we had no need for air conditioning.

Adeberto(who lives onsite) and Miguel were attentive to our needs and Mac the property manager was great meeting us at the airport and getting us situated with our rental car and first grocery store visit.

We would definitely love to return to this awesome getaway!!

A gem

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem that is even more beautiful than the pictures if you can believe it. We had 5 adults and one 2 year-old here and there was plenty of room for everyone. Our daughter loved the house, the pool was perfect for her and the private beach was amazing too. We had a great time exploring the island of Roatan, but there was so much to do around the house and just relaxing on the porch and in the pool and on our private beach or the amazing snorkeling right off shore that it would have been fine if we just stayed at the house all week! Mac the property manager was great, he had great recommendations for us and hooked me up with a great dive outfit (Tropical Island Divers), and Adeberto and his wife, who lived right outside and took care of the day-to-day stuff, were amazing, wonderful people who were very helpful, even rode with me to the fish market to help me find where to buy some fish to cook on the grill. We met so many nice people on the island and had such a great time I'd recommend Roatan to everyone, and this house really can't be beat.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful home for 9 days, and I wish it was much longer. The house sits on its own private beach in a quiet residential area. I did not see any neighbors during my stay so it felt like I was on my own private island. I spent most mornings scuba diving the amazing reef, which happens to also be located right offshore from the house. I did tour most of the island, and while it was nice, I couldn’t wait to get back to the house every day! I spent many afternoons enjoying the gentle ocean breeze while swaying in the hammock under the palapa on MY VERY OWN BEACH. The sound of the waves provided a nice backdrop for my daily siesta. The swimming pool was a nice spot to cool off on hot afternoons, as well as a good place to watch the sunsets. The house provides ocean views which can be enjoyed from the living room, dining room, and kitchen area, but also right from the bed in the master bedroom. Imagine waking up to that view every day. You do need a car if staying here, but decent restaurants and a well stocked grocery store are a short drive away. I recommend stopping at the Bulk Gourmet and picking up some steaks and chops and enjoying them back at the house on the professional BBQ grill that is provided. The owner left me a very nice welcome basket and also arranged to have Eddie meet me at the airport. Eddie was very helpful and was just a phone call away if I had any questions. I can’t wait to return to this awesome house! The house has all the conveniences you could ask for: sattelite TV, DVD and CD players, wirelss internet, and a cell phone for local calls. There are kayaks provided, and the bay area (which is much calmer than the ocean) is a short walk down the private road. Although I had heard stories about the Roatan electric company being unreliable and having daily blackouts, I did not experience any pwer outages during my 9 days here. I highly recommend this place and I will be back soon!
