Testimonials:Stayed at Casa de Rexanna for a month. The most amazing views, water taxi pick-up at the private dock and a quick ocean drive to West Beach. The property gorgeous, quiet, private, and serene. Enjoyed coffee on the balcony each morning and wine under the stars listening to the ocean on the dock at night. After coffee I would explore the shore (30 feet away) to see what treasures the tide washed in. Fifteen minute walk to West End, where I could buy fresh food to prepare, or a fresh fish taco in town. I am still questioning why I ever left? One of the smartest decisions anybody could make is to stay at this casa de pura vita de Rexanna. Dawn Adams

Paradise awaits

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip out of the country, while my wife had been a few times. Honestly, I was nervous about all the details of going to such a small island, and a rental at that. Reading the reviews was moderately helpful, but having worked in customer service, I know that most of the time, reviews are left by those that had a bad experience, or those with a really great one - and the majority of our experiences are somewhere in the middle. We stayed in the upper unit of Casa de Rexanna in Mangrove Bight. Another couple lived in the unit below ours, which made me feel very secure. The gentlemen there, Manu, is a native islander and was readily available to help us. Now, while the view was incredible, and the location quiet and super relaxing, I learned that the goal was relaxation and not work. I had to check a few emails, but my phone service provider wasn't very helpful. Luckily there was wi-fi on property and even though the power went down once, it really wasn't a problem. Better yet, it helped me focus on spending time with my wife! The island is indescribable and with Manu close by - we learned about lots of local happenings. I recommend Casa de Rexanna to anyone looking at Roatan.

Awesome when Manu is gone

  • 3 of 5

Okay house. Living room furniture does not match picture. Zero condiments, not even salt and pepper. Clean. Great view.

Casa Rexanna has a pest problem. Rats get up on the deck table, chairs, railing and benches and defecate all over everything every night and sometimes during the day. We stayed there for 10-nights. Large brown ants come in through a shaped window above the kitchen bay window at night and invade the trash and counter tops.

Another larger and less tolerable pest is, Manu, and his prostitute. If both units are not occupied then Manu is allowed to stay in either unit and in our case Manu was in the lower unit from Nov. 6-13th. Safety lights are installed on the stairs up to the upper unit and are quite necessary at night and especially during heavy rain. When Manu arrived Sunday afternoon, Nov. 6 he parked his big Honda Odyssey in the middle of the parking pad and did not move his vehicle for 5-days. Also, the safety lights for the stairs suddenly quit working when Manu arrived. I knocked on the door and kindly inquired with him about the lights and he told me plain and simple to "....just use the patio light...you don't need the stair lights..." Wrong answer, Manu. I had to contact property management and complain and after two days the lights were restored when a maintenance man arrived, argued with Manu and then left the property ripping up two 8' long tire ruts into lawn adjacent to the driveway. Manu is not gainfully employed and basically is just a potlicker to the property, laying around all day doing nothing but watching TV and waiting for Friday and Saturday to roll around when he turns out his Twinkie for the night. He makes her walk to the main road. He does nothing to maintain the property since the rental agency handles the yard maintenance. Manu is so lazy he throws his trash on the ground next to the trash can when its full. He has full unfettered access to every door code, alarm code and router password. After we complained about the lights he bumped our devices off the router and began arming and disarming the alarm in the middle of the night which makes loud audible noises that will wake you. No sense in complaining because RLVR won't do anything about it anytime soon and Manu will just figure out a way to retaliate. It gets worse, check it out for yourself. There is a good reason reviews are a rarity for this property. Manu intimidates people and hates being kicked off his throne. Rent at your own risk. Manu's gotta go.

Okay house, but not very comfortable sofa/chairs and hard beds. Zero condiments, not even salt and pepper. Clean. Great view.

Sits right on Mangrove Bight
Car: recommended

Mangrove Bight is a great location to spend your time on Roatan if you're looking for proximity to West End, but also a private and quiet location. Mangrove Bight is in between Half Moon Bay and Gibson Bight, and is only a 20 minute walk to West End, or a 3-minute taxi ride. A rental car is not necessary, but past renter's have found it useful and helpful.
