Property description

MARIPOSA DEL MAR is a stylish luxury property on a private oceanfront estate. PRICING includes the use of a car.

The villa has its own pool overlooking the sea. A brand new extra large pool deck for sunning, parties, or enjoying the sunset is a new addition for 2013. Recent landscaping changes have really opened up the spectacular view. The pool area also has a tropical bar with bar fridge, service area and full bathroom. Other features are a huge fully equipped gourmet kitchen, decks, hammocks, and entertainment center, everything you need for your stay.

The great room features a dining room that opens to the sea views and a plush, spacious, living room area for enjoying our large video library, music system or satellite TV.

Manager info

About: The owners fell in love with Roatan 14 years ago and built their second home here. They live here quite a bit of the time at the near by villa of Fuego del Mar. Over the years they, along with a sister built two more villas, Mariposa del Mar and Brisa del Mar, on the property for personal and family use. When the family and friends are not here in Roatan we offer the villas to you for your enjoyment. This property is much more like home than a hotel. Roatan is convenient to the US with direct flights from Atlanta, Huston, Newark, Miami and several other cities in the States. It is so convenient for friends and family to get together here and enjoy the sun, sea, boat, spa and golf. The wonderful attention that the staff provide have have made this villa a unique and wonderful experience over the years

Why Bay Islands, Honduras:
Politilly is in the quiet east end of the island far from all the cruise ships, tourist hub bub and traffic. Small restaurants, scenic vistas, secluded beaches, traditional villages are all close by.
