About the property

Casa de Admirada - 6 Bedrooms, 6.0 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Large spacious property with estate feel and easy flow. Casa Admirada creates a vibe allowing everyone to relax and enjoy even when travelling with a large group or family.

This stunning beachfront home with sunset view is located on a beachfront lot that has a gentle slope from sand to the yard. A view of the serene bay of Gibson Bight, one of Roatan's most protected bodies of water.

Not only does the home sit right on a quiet private beach, but it also has a full oversized pool, ample outdoor living area and high speed internet and TVs in the common areas of this home. Casa de Admirada features the following floor plan: The 2nd Floor of the main building has a master bedroom with a king-sized bed and a 2nd master guest bedroom with a queen-sized bed. Both bedrooms have full bathrooms en-suites. There is a wraparound screened porch with sunset view. As you would expect the house is equipped with all the amenities.

The entry floor area features a separate apartment suite that makes a great private area again with a king-sized bed. The 4th bedroom with separate entry is like a small apartment with a queen-sized bed. Both rooms have their own separate full bathrooms, living area with TV and kitchen. And of course, their own ocean view.

Out on the pool deck, there are two large individual cabanas suites with ocean views. Each cabana has a queen-sized bed, full bathroom, sitting area with pullout couch, mini fridge, microwave oven, coffee pot, and TV. The common areas include a covered BBQ area, screened-in 2nd floor porch, outdoor palapa and wet bar at the pool, huge pool deck, white sand beach, dock, multiple kayaks as well as paddle boards. A full size laundry room with an extra bathroom off the pool area, landscaped tropical gardens and an onsite caretaker that lives in his own separate home at the back of the property and is available to help you with anything you need.

All of this is steps to the beach and just minutes to West End. For the active guests enjoy a quick swim, kayak or paddle board to the mouth of the bay where you an snorkel the coral reef.

Its a lot to write about and we hope you take a look at our pictures and email us with any questions.

Had the best time at this beautiful house in Roatan! The house was amazing, fully equipped with everything we needed, even had paddle boards and kayaks to use in the bay. Liz and her team were excellent.

Would highly recommend a stay here, we will be back!

Wonderful week traveling with 3 families

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Casa de Admirada! The layout really worked well for our group of 6 adults and 5 kids. Plenty of room so we never really felt crowded. The pool was a huge hit with both the kids and adults. We also made good use of the Kayaks to explore the Bight.

Having our own dock really made diving and fishing so much easier as the boats were able to just pull up and pick us up.

One of the highlights was having a dinner prepared for us at the house one night. It was delicious (especially the stewed chicken with rice and beans!). We also too advantage of the grill and kitchen(s) and made many of our own meals.

A short walk away was the Sunken Fish, a nice little bar/restaurant right on the water. West End and West Bay were each just a short taxi ride away. However, we ended up spending almost all our time right on the property. What a wonderful vacation and we hope to be back soon!

The Perfect Place for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place was better than the pictures show. There was 12 of us, one couple with 4 kids, one couple with 2 kids and one senior couple (the grandparents) so we were concerned on booking a place for our size of group. This place worked perfect, space for everyone. Not one of the kids made a complaint about sleeping arrangement and the couples all had private rooms. The pool area was just incredible with a great pool, which I was a little surprised at the size of it, looked smaller in pictures, and lots of room for the loungers. The bar was a great feature with power and running water, made our pool parties even better!

Will, the caretaker who lives in a house at front of property does a great job. I had read in other reviews how he was invisible, he truly was. He would clean the pool and do pool water tests early every morning before most of us were up (one child wakes early) and every day he and his kids (they were home and not school since we were there during Easter holy week) would rake and clean the yard as well as the beach in front of house. He did lots of things that made our stay that much better and enjoyable.

The area was amazing, a short walk down Sandy Bay on the first morning, my wife and I found a great small restaurant called the Beach Grill which had great food and beautiful view. Also found a great little dive shop called Octopus Dive School. Four of us signed up for the Discover Scuba course and had a super great time and went back for a second dive. The things you see are just amazing and on the second dive owner, Nuria was our dive master and took us over a shipwreck that was just off the reef for incredible sights, even a large Grouper followed us out to the wreck.

I had emailed Liz a few times before our trip and she was always quick to get back to me, which was so nice. Upon our arrival at the airport, which was busy, there was someone holding my name on a sheet of paper and a taxi waiting to bring us to the house just as planned. We stopped at Eldon's grocery store to get a few things on the way to the house. It turned out not to be to far of a drive, since we also rented a vehicle during our stay, which worked out great since we went back a few times to the store.

At the house we met Bertha, who showed us through the house and all the things we needed to know. She was great during our stay, always easy to get in touch with and very helpful with any questions we had about the island.

Perfect place for family with kids!

Beautiful Home with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This home was incredibly beautiful and impeccably maintained. We had 14 in our group, 4 adults and 10 of our children ranging from 14-22. It was perfect for the kids to have there own space in the separate "apartments and pool casitas" and plenty of room to move around. The main level of the house had room enough for everyone to sit and hang together. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking, and even remarked that it had everything except a knife sharpener and then we found one a day later. The neighbors were delightful and helpful and the gardener kept the grounds and pool in perfect condition. We found a few local places to eat and made a few trips to west end and west bay. We went out to the main road and hailed a taxi which cost about $2.50- 3.00 per person each way. The taxi drivers were helpful and all very nice. No problems at all. We managed to stay with out a rental car. We found it was less expensive then renting something for 14 people. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Sits right on Gibson Bight
Car: recommended

Gibson Bight is a quiet area of Sandy Bay - Casa de Admirada is located right on the water just up from the marina, so it wouldn't be rare to see boats passing by. Kayaks are available for your use, and with the proximity of the reef, it is possible to swim out to the reef every day during your visit.
