About the Property
Beachfront, Private House - 1 Bdrm+Loft Bdrm & 1.25 Baths (Best for a couple).
The loft has a full size bed, seating and sink/vanity. The house is ideal for a couple, but can sleep four.
This is a small, clean, modern house next to a classic island home on over 3 acres of private property. The property extends from the road to the beach in a quiet, safe area of Sandy Bay, at Spooky Channel in the Marine Reserve - includes use of the dock.
We recently furnished the house with modern and custom furniture (inside and on the deck), new linens, electronics, dishes, cutlery, kitchen appliances and BBQ.
We, the owners, live on-site in a classic island house and are available to provide information, arrange transportation and activities, borrow cooking ingredients/utensils and assist you any way we can to make your vacation as enjoyable as possible.
We personally pick you up at the airport, take you to the grocery store, then to the guest house. We provide information about the guest house, the area, the island, and answer any questions. We will bring you back to the airport at the end of your vacation and can print any tickets/boarding docs.
You are welcome to the fruit from any of our trees/bushes on-site. We have coconuts (year around), cashews, papayas, mangos, nonis, breadfruit, bananas, plantains, soursop, starfruit, avocados and hot peppers (seasonally).
• Swimming, snorkeling and world class diving is easily accessible on the coral reef right out front, use of the dock included with fresh water shower and covered area.
• We are ideally located 10 minutes from West End, where you’ll find many dive centers, restaurants, beach bars, shopping, and small grocery stores and also 10 minutes from Coxen Hole, the major town on the island.
• Large, screened porch with seating, table, lighting.
• Air conditioning in the bedroom, ceiling fans throughout, mobile fan, reading lights.
• Fully equipped kitchen, modern appliances, filtered water/water cooler
• Washing machine (w/detergent) and clothes line off the deck
• Free internet access on-site and cell phone (phone provided with 20-30 minutes locally and to the US/Canada about the same price). You buy extra, inexpensive minutes.
• 2 person kayak, 2 mountain bikes, beach lounge chairs, hammock, snorkel marker, floatation devices, some snorkel equipment, beach front picnic facilities, horseshoes, volleyball - all included, (guitar and djembe drum available upon request).
• On deck is a gas BBQ (charcoal BBQ and fire pit available).
• 32” flat screen TV with local cable. DVD player and DVD library with about 200 movies, speakers for mp3 hookup, radio.
To enjoy your stay, you must be OK with dogs. We have 2 dogs that are good with guests but do bark when unfamiliar people or dogs come around, but they provide great security.
Direct flights to Roatan are currently available from Houston, Atlanta, Miami, Toronto and Milan. Main carriers are United and Delta, and American from the US and Sunwing or Air Transat from Canada.

The guest and our classic, island house are the only houses on our private, 2 1/2 acres from road to beach. There are many fruit trees, and plants that you are welcome to.
The reef is just 150' and is at the famous Spooky Channel with lots of marine life for divers & snorkelers.
This is a quiet area of Sandy Bay. There are several restaurnts/bars within walking distance and many more a short taxi ride away. You don't need a care here as taxi's run on the main road every couple minutes and cost $1.50 per person to West End or Coxen Hole, both about 10 minutes away.
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Al and I (Sandra) have been married 28 years. We retired from hectic careers in Western US and Canada in 2007. We love animals and help local people care for their animals and coordinate veterinary care. Sandra is working on a masters degree in holistic nutrition. We love our life in Roatan and like to share our piece of paradise with guests.
Why the Owner Chose Sandy Bay, Honduras:
We have been certified divers since 1993. We knew we wanted to live in the Caribbean and fell in love with Roatan in 1997. We found our dream property with an old island home on the beach in 2001. It is just our house and the guest house on our 3 acres from road to beach. No need to walk through other neighborhoods. We recently decided to rent our guest house that was built in 2007, but finished/upgraded in 2011 andnow upgrade continually.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beach is right out your front door. You can quietly relax in a hammock or lounge chairs on our private part of the beach. There is no local access through this property and rarely motor vehicles on the beach here. Snorkel or take the kayak out about 150 yards to Spooky Channel or just swm from the dock out front. Anthony's Key and Roatan Institute of Marine Science is just 1/4 mile away. It's quiet but centrally located within 10 minutes and a dollar and a half taxi ride to both West End or Coxen Hole.
