Property description

Look No Further! Why be steps or minutes from the beach when you can be right on the sand? St. Mac's is a traditional stand alone Caribbean style villa (3 bedroom unit upstairs, 1 bedroom unit downstairs) with loads of charm and a spacious, open floor plan. Remodeled and updated in 2009, the well stocked gourmet kitchen features granite counters, new stainless appliances, microwave and dishwasher. All the modern equipment and conveniences, plus an incredible ocean sound track--Cooking with a View! A large dining table area off the kitchen will be a perfect place to serve your fresh local fish, and a guest bath completes the space. Outside, your private Beachfront Garden awaits, lined with palm trees and lounge chairs. Float, swim and snorkel to your heart's content in the clear, warm waters in your front yard. One of Roatan's finest technicolor snorkeling experiences is located just steps away!

Let the sound of waves lull you to sleep in the large King Master bedroom, with sliding doors opening onto the large veranda with ocean view. Soft pillows and nice sheets add to the total sleeping experience. The master bath has twin sinks and a shower/tub, as well as another deck off the back with door to provide cross ventilation. Large Bedroom Two has a King size bed and a lovely wraparound veranda off the back. Fish themed Bedroom three features two twin beds with thick mattress pads, a large veranda, and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with twin sinks shared with Bedroom Two. The Lower Unit has one bedroom and a spacious living/dining area, with sliding doors that open up onto your private beachfront patio.

The Upper Unit's light and airy open living area has floor to ceiling windows, vaulted ceilings and expansive wrap around views of the glorious Caribbean. Enjoy outdoors in, or dining al fresco on the oceanfront covered veranda with the waves as your soundtrack. Lounge the day away reading in your twin hammocks, watch the boats come in, or if you feel like it, do a cannonball off the dock to the left of the villa. All your favorite TV channels are available for your viewing pleasure on our new 50' flat screen TV, as well as a DVD and CD player. Wifi is available at no charge throughout St. Mac's. There is also a separate area with two overstuffed reading chairs and a computer work table area should you need to check in with the world. All rooms have ceiling fans as well as central air conditioning, but you will find the gentle Caribbean trade winds will keep you cool as well.

24 hr Security is on the grounds, a full time landscaper and twice weekly Housekeeping service is also included. Provisions can be gotten down the street at the local deli at West Bay Mall (not really a 'Mall'!), and there is good local food, a popular coffee shop as well as an intimate Sushi bar. Many other dining options are also steps away, and numerous great dive shops are located nearby (we like Bananarama). Don't miss the weekly visits of the man selling fresh local seafood when he comes to St. Mac's! The villa is located right next door to Infinity Bay Condominiums, with popular outdoor Sports Bar and restaurant. Taxi boats can take you from the public dock right out front to funky West End with its happening nightlife, and taxis are readily available to drive you back. Enjoy World Class snorkeling and diving just a short stroll down the beach!

St. Mac's is the Oceanfront part of West Bay Village, a small private enclave of Caribbean style homes that have retained their traditional Caribbean character in a concrete CondoWorld. If you are looking for charm and True Beachfront, Look No Further!

We are happy to arrange for our driver, Marty, to meet your flight at RTB airport, then bring you to St Mac's. He will stop at our local well stocked grocery store along the way for provisions for your cooking pleasure. Marty charges $25 (up to 4 people; $40 for more than 4), and you pay him directly. He can also help with any other transport needs you may have during your stay.

Refund policy: for cancellation 90+ days before arrival, full deposit refund. 50% of your deposit is refundable upon cancellation within 60 days or more of your arrival. If you cancel in 59 days or less, your deposit is non refundable. All non refundable deposits may be used towards another St Mac's booking within 6 months of cancellation, based on availability.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: St. Mac's Villa is owned by two couples who have a longtime love affair with Roatan, and West Bay Beach. We are lucky enough to live in Reno and Lake Tahoe in the summer, and Roatan is Home as often as we can make it down here. St. Mac's is a great place for family gatherings! Nothing says relaxation like a good book, the sounds of waves in the background, a dip in the warm water of the Caribbean, and a beautiful sunset....

Why the Owner Chose West Bay Village, West Bay, Honduras:
We started coming to Roatan 25 years ago, in the Wild West days before there were real roads out to West Bay. An ongoing love affair started with West Bay Beach, and St. Mac's was always the best house on the best beach--a true traditional Caribbean style charmer. Time has passed, and we are thrilled to be co-owners with another couple who feel the same way we do! We've been all over the world searching for the perfect white sand beach with world class diving and snorkeling and crystal clear warm water...it is here at West Bay Beach. Despite West Bay's growth and new concrete condo construction, St Mac's is STILL the best house on the best beach, just with more dining options!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy 'steps to the ocean' and a '7 minute walk' along the coast to West Bay Beach? Be True Beachfront, right on the sand! This is the charming yellow house many people stop to take pictures of while walking down the beach. 24 hour Security Guards on site, plenty of parking, and a private Beachfront garden with swaying palms, lounge chairs and beautiful sunsets provided. Incredible snorkeling steps away! Excellent scuba diving close by with amazing reefs and sea creatures to enjoy.
