About the Property

Our house has 4 Bd/3 Bath, Sleeps 2-10; optional Apartment 2 Bd/1 bath sleeps 4

Away from the hustle and bustle, you will very quickly settle into ''island mode'' upon your first views of our tropical paradise...Balsam Rock Retreat.
This Caribbean style home has many unique features. The house welcomes you to the upper level via a bridge into the great room, which encompasses the kitchen, dining and living area, the 16 foot wood vaulted ceiling opens to the panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea and the sheltered cove of Caribe Bite. Also on this floor you have a bedroom with a king bed and a full bathroom. You'll spend most of your time outside on the wrap around verandas, relaxing in a hammock, swing or just lounging in a chair that overlooks the Blue Lagoon and the Caribbean Sea, The breeze is intoxicating!!! Fill the hummingbird feeder and try and count how many show up for a free meal.
The kitchen is fully equipped with up to date appliances, an island for prep work, breakfast bar, and a great conversation area.
Living room furniture is comfortable and has DirecTV satellite television (including HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, TMC) and a Blu-Ray player with a growing library of movies.
The second floor contains the master bedroom (king size bed) and private bathroom. Two additional bedrooms (one queen and one bunk bed in the yellow room in the other room has 1 queen bed. Step out the door from either the master bedroom or main bathroom onto the wrap around veranda and relax by the infinity edge pool looking out at the blue waters. The washer and dryer are located on this floor. All bedrooms are equipped with air conditioners and the main floor is central air, however with the breezes, you'll rarely need to use the A/C, but it is a great comfort on those few breeze-less days!
Find your way through the gardens to the overlook bench or step down to the private beach and dock where you can swim, kayak, snorkel, or fish. An outside shower is there to wash the saltwater off. There is a large sundeck where you can either sun bath or stargaze, looking up at night, you can't help but see the Milky Way.
Call for a water taxi and Martin might be the one to pick you up at the dock to show you around. Want to go diving? East End Divers will pick you up at the dock too and take you to the most magnificent dive sites. Experience the drop off as never before and try a drift dive. No experience, No problem, they are authorized certified trainers.
Jorge is our watch man, and stays on the property to assist you with things around the home. Berta, Jorge's wife, is our cleaning lady, and for a small price will clean during the week for you.
You will find that Roatan is beautiful, charming and a safe place to visit. Iguana farms, canopy tours, horseback riding, tropical gardens, zoos, beaches, shopping and friendly islanders are some of the things you will fall in love with here in Roatan.

Other Amenities

  • ACCESSIBILITY NOTES: --------------------------------- The main level of the home has easy access, without any stairs to the great room, a bedroom with king size bed, and full bath. The great room includes the kitchen, dining, and family room areas. Also, the wrap around veranda is accessible with the only restriction of the threshold, and a 3 inch step down. The pool is accessible from the middle level, for which you would have to go down one flight of stairs (interior or exterior stairway) to access the middle floor veranda, which can also be reached easily from the lower parking level. The driveway from the upper to the lower is quite steep, and I would not recommend traversing this alone in a would be easiest by car, but could be done with assistance. Please use your best judgment. The dock would require traversing a few flights of stairs, and would probably be inaccessible....moreless

Car: Recommended

Our home is located in the very quiet east end of Roatan. The home is direct ocean front, with a private beach, pool, and dock on the Blue Lagoon, in the area called Caribe Point Bite, at the very private end of the road high on a bluff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Blue Lagoon, and the mountains and jungles all around. The closest villages are Jonesville Point and the town of Jonesville. We are approximately 15 scenic miles east of Roatan International Airport.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Mike's dream was to own a home on an island on the side of a hill. So when we visited Roatan in 2010 he found his dream come true, the only problem was to convince me. We spent two weeks in Roatan, and at first I was skeptical, chicken little (me) didn't want to leave the country, (there are strangers out, what were they like, different customs, different standards then what I am used to. It turns out that the Islanders are very nice people, willing to help out with all that you need. My decision to buy our home came when I went on my first scuba trip, as I said before I am chicken little, but with a leap of faith, received instructions and off I went into the most beautiful underworld you could imagine. It was there I said to myself that I wanted more of this. I came up from my dive and told my husband that I was ready...he said for what, I said ready to buy, I think it was the first time I had shocked him in 30 years. Since then we try to get there as much as possible and try to make it for at least two weeks when we do. When I get to Balsam Rock Retreat, I have time to unwind and think about my life, and what changes I need to make to improve it. Each visit renews and rejuvenates me for the next journey in my life. I am sure when you book and stay with us, you will feel the same way too. Sincerely, Kay

Why the Owner Chose Bay Islands, Honduras:
When we purchased this house it was because it was so comfortable. Our guests have mentioned to me on numerous occasions how they had such peace staying at Balsam Rock. Every guest that arrives at our home gets a phone call from me at least once, and everyone of them are so thankful to us for letting them stay there. So much so that when we ask for a review they give Balsam Rock Retreat 5 stars. Mike and I attribute that to; Our care for our guests, first we make sure you are informed about our home and Roatan. We answer all your questions asap. We have Jorge there to greet you at the airport so that you are not overwhelmed. He also lives on the property and is available for any of your needs. It is our desire for you to experience this peace.
