Overview

About the property

Luxurious 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom Condo (Sleeps 4-5)

This spacious 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom condo is located in the Views of Sunset Estates in the Sunset Villas neighborhood in the heart of West End. Sunset Villas is a quiet, safe neighborhood that is a short walk from the shops, bars, restaurants, and dive shops of West End. This stunning condo is the penthouse of a 3 story building that comes complete with a rooftop patio and a swimming pool!

It is a good walk uphill (about 10 minutes though not all is uphill) and upstairs (it is on the 3rd floor but there are 5 flights of stairs to get there) but the views are worth it. If you would rather not walk, there is a scooter rental place in West End that rents for about $180/week (sometimes cheaper during slower times).

From the entrance of Sunset Villas West End Beach is a 2 minute walk, 6 minutes to Half Moon Bay Beach where the famous Sundowners Bar is located, and a less than 1o minute boat ride to West Bay Beach which is considered one of the best beaches in the Caribbean.

This fully air-conditioned condo has everything you will want including a stunning pool with ocean views; a master bedroom with a King sized bed and an en-suite bathroom; a second bedroom with a King bed; a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar, cooking island, granite counter tops, and modern appliances; a washer and dryer; a large dining table perfect; and a living area with a sofa, love seat, and a HDTV with DVD and Cable. Enjoy unparalleled views of the ocean and the sunset from the balcony. The balcony also has a dining table, a gas BBQ, and a chaise lounge which is perfect for relaxing with a cold beverage after a long day at the beach. This luxurious 1600 Square Foot condo comfortably sleeps 4-5 people.

As part of our rental service, we can arrange for anything and everything you want to do while on the island. We have lived here for over 7 years and know everything about everything on Roatan. We can even stock the refrigerator with your favorite foods and drinks. What better than to have an ice cold beer waiting for you upon arrival?

The condo also comes with a cell phone that can make and receive inexpensive local and international phone calls and a USB 3G internet Modem.

We do not include electricity in the rental price. We include an electricity allowance that covers the use of the fans, fridge, and hot water heater. But instead of charging fees for laundry, A/C , extra people, and so forth, it is easier and fairer to charge for electricity instead. We read the meter at check-in and check-out and use the previous month's bill to determine the rate. We found that including electricity in the price made people want to get their money's worth by leaving the A/Cs constantly on at full blast and every light in the place on. Not only is it eco unfriendly, it meant we had to tack on an extra $400 / week to the rental rate.

We have a fantastic year round wind that comes straight through the condo if you leave the doors open. The master bedroom opens onto the balcony so you can leave the sliding glass door open and get a nice ocean breeze. The other bedrooms have screened windows that can also be left open. You might not even need A/C.

The rates do not include tax but do include all other fees.

About Caribbean Colors

I started coming to Roatan about 10 years ago. I had traveled to pretty much everywhere else in the Caribbean but never found an island I liked as much as Roatan. The beaches are fantastic, the ocean is so clear and blue, the palm trees abound, and the people are welcoming. So I started coming back every chance I got.

Caribbean Colors purchased this condo in 2007

Why Caribbean Colors chose West End

I had been interested in buying property in Roatan since my first trip. West End seemed like the logical place to buy as it has such a fantastic mix of tourists and locals, bars and restaurants, nightlife and tranquility, and of course snorkeling and diving. Call me spoiled, but I wanted to buy a condo that had all the comforts of living in the US with views of the ocean and sunset. I searched and searched and finally found this property. It truly has it all.

What makes this condo unique

This property is close to everything but removed from it all. It is located in a safe, quiet neighborhood in the heart of West End. It is less than 5 a minute walk to town and the beach. It is a perfect base to explore this fantastic island. Or you can just relax by the pool with a few tropical cocktails and work on your tan.

Stunning views from every window!!

  • 4 of 5

There is a little bit of deferred maintenance that I hope the owners will address. But our stay was fantastic. You have 180° views overlooking the trees towards the ocean. Every time we left or came back from the condo we were greeted by friendly neighborhood dogs. I spent many hours playing with them and wished I could take them all home and save them. The condo is a short walk to the West End less than 10 minutes . When you were returning the walk back is a steep climb. When you get to the condo entrance you were greeted by 70 steps to get to the front door. We quickly got used to the walk and look forward to it, it would not keep us from renting the condo again. We had an amazing 10 day stay and we look forward to coming back .

Best View on Roatan

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in this condo for a week. It was perfect,(except for the stairs). The condo sits off the beach up a small hill and then 82 steps to the top floor penthouse. The photos do not do the view justice, it is beautiful. The condo itself is two bedroom two bath with ac in each room. It has a small washer dryer and dishwasher (did not use this). It is one flight of steps to gorgeous private rooftop. The furnishings were new and the cable and internet worked well also. Overall very pleased. Would definitely stay here again. I chose west end because of all the activities and restaurants. West bay has a prettier beach and is just a short car ride or boat taxi away. I rented a car at the airport, not totally necessary , but for $40 a day was nice to have. We explored all the to Paya Bay and Port Royal, ie the total other end of the island. That took up most of that day. The manager Carolyn was great. She is a phone call away. I had read a previous reviewer of this property being worried about the electronic door code, so she came over and gave me a new code and erased all previous codes.

Favorite Place on Roatan

  • 5 of 5

I stay in this condo several times a year and always love it. I think I like it better than my house in the US. The view always amazes me. I came back for Christmas and I wasn't disappointed.

The inside of the unit is just as nice, if not nicer that any place in the US. It is super comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Best Rental on Roatan

  • 5 of 5

I don't know what else to say about this place other than it is perfect. I have been staying here twice a year since I found the condo a few years back. The view from the place makes you never want to leave. It is a hike from the main road (about a 7 minute walk , half is uphill) and I like lazy vacations so I always rent a car. But it is not needed. The inside of the condo has everything and then some. I love BBQing on the balcony as the sun sets. Best place on Roatan.

Terrific holiday spot!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Roatan the last three years and this is by far the best accommodation that we have had. It is exactly as advertised! The condo is is well maintained and spacious enough for a family or two couples. The master bedroom opens to a balcony and if you leave the curtains open a bit, you wake up to hummingbirds hovering around. We really appreciated the well stocked kitchen - a wide array of spices and other incidentals that just made it feel like home. Having an ensuite laundry was great - so nice to do laundry and hang it to dry. We didn't use the air conditioner as leaving the windows open allowed for a nice breeze through. Being up three floors afforded a fantastic view - over the tree tops, straight to the ocean. It was fun watching the cruise boats come in in the morning and out again against the sunset. And oh, the sunsets! If you want a place to relax with a cold beverage at the end of the day, then this is your spot. The sunsets were magnificient - a photographers dream. Caroline, the property manager, was good at answering our questions. She had a taxi meet us and take us for grocery and she was there within a few minutes to meet us at the condo. We didn't eat out often but try the Rotisserie chicken for chicken and a dessert of cinnamon buns. We go to Roatan to dive and have found that Coconut Tree Divers suits us to a tee. They are so welcoming that you feel like family. All in all, staying in the Penthouse and diving with Coconut Tree - about as close to heaven as you can come!

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

If you'd like to wake up to AMAZING panoramic views of lush forest and ocean than this is the place for you. We originally thought the picture of 'sunset from the balcony' was photoshopped but no, it's actually BETTER than the photos. The condo is very comfortable, it's bigger than than you think. We only used the master bedroom but it would fit a family or 2 couples very comfortably. It has all the usual amenities you'd need. Pool is nice, although there's not a lot of shade. The condo is a little bit of a hike up (a small hill plus 3 flights of stairs), but we rented a scooter (highly recommended!). But if you'd prefer to walk, it's an easy 10mins or so to the main strip. Caroline, the property manager is very responsive and was extremely helpful when we were there. She and her partner personally came to the condo (on a weekend) to get rid of a warps nest on the balcony. Thanks for everything Caroline, we hope to be back one day!

This condo is fantastically located in a quiet neighborhood in the heart of West End. It is the penthouse of a 3 story condo building located at The Views of Sunset Estates. The building is situated on a small hill overlooking all of West End, the beach, the reef, and the Caribbean Sea. The sun even sets over the ocean directly in-front of the balcony. It is less than a 5 minute walk into town where you can find restaurants, bars, shopping, groceries, beaches, snorkeling, and dive shops. And speaking of diving, our world famous reef is just a short swim from shore and is great for snorkeling and diving. If you are a SCUBA diver or want to learn to dive, we work with a local diveshop to provide discounted packages to our guests.
