We also own a 1 bed 1 bath beach bungalow next door that accommodates 2-4 if you have a larger group.

There is a rain fed creek on the property line and a bridge that goes over it to get to the dock when it rains. The bridge has been taken out on rare occasion with very heavy rain. But once the rain subsided the dock can still be accessed from shore.

The snorkeling, swimming, and diving from the home at the end of the dock at spooky channel is some of the best on the island.

Swimming off the dock is best at this home. We do not destroy sea grass like some resorts. The benefit to preserving sea grass is that it conserves sea life, provides protection for sea turtles, and makes for abundant sea life on the reef off the dock but it’s not ideal for swimming near the shore. We recommend to swim off the end of the dock.

In addition, we have friends that own an adjacent property a few lots off of the beach with a swimming pool that also sleeps 8, perfect for large groups. The wrap around deck lets you view the sun setting on the Sea in front and the moon rising in the back.

About Shevy and Erika with local concierge Vanessa

About the owner: My wife Erika and I grew up I the Midwest, she is from northern Minnesota and I'm from North Dakota, we both love to travel and we've visited numerous countries and states with our family. We enjoy camping and adventuring to see and experience different cultures. We have three daughters, Krimzen (11), Brooklyn (9), Regan (7), and one son, Crew (2).

Shevy and Erika with local concierge Vanessa purchased this house in 2016

Why Shevy and Erika with local concierge Vanessa chose Coxen Hole

I love snorkeling, my wife loves laid back Caribbean Islands, we have traveled throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America but Roatan is our favorite! While travelling back from Belize about 5 years go someone on our plane overheard us talking about what we liked about Belize, with our only issue being how far off shore the reef was. Hearing that, they said we had to go to Roatan, so we did and we fell in love.

We fell in love with Roatan, it has elevation, beautiful lush vegetation, snorkeling and diving right off shore, delicious food, and friendly locals.

We love Sunnyside because of its privacy and lush vegatation, 400 foot dock, reef about 30 yards off the end of the dock than can be explored for hours, yet close enough to west end and west bay to enjoy the shops and restaurants when we wish.

We love this bungalow, while the main home is tough to beat set right on the sand with a long beach before it and then the water, this home is off set between the main home and our neighbors at Spooky Cannel next door, with a water channel running behind it and in front of it to the right and a clear view to the Caribbean Sea, lush vegetation, and the beach path between our main home and Spooky Channel.

What makes this house unique

Our beach house dock is such about a 50 yard swim to the reef for a wonderful snorkel and diving experience 50 yards off the dock

  • 4 of 5

Vanns was great she gave us useful information about the island we did decide we needed a car to go to West Bay and west end. The house was right for our family we had plenty of space. We cooked several times and had everthing we needed. The kitchen is well stocked. The house is older but maintain and the yard is kept up. I would stay there again.

needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

There's no doubt that the location is prime, right off the reef, with easy access from the dock. The layout is really good, with 3 large bedrooms each having an attached private bathroom. Unfortunately, the home did not feel very clean nor well cared for. The lock on one of the bedrooms was broken, and had clearly been a problem in the past, as it looked like someone had used an implement to try to get it open. Vanessa responded promptly, and had the doorknob replaced, however, since it was apparently a problem in the past, why wasn't it dealt with prior to my son and daughter-in-law getting locked out of their room? The furnishings appear to have been treated harshly, as there were broken items, some of which had been 'repaired', and others not. There was a roll of brand new carpeting standing on end in the corner of the master bedroom. Odd.

All in all, the overall feeling of shabbiness and lack of cleanliness and care did detract from the enjoyment of the place.

We did not feel that the pictures were an accurate reflection of the house,in its current condition.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sunnyside for a week. There were 2 families in our group - 8 people - and we had plenty of room. We found the house to be well stocked with beach towels, toiletries, etc. Vanessa is a perfect concierge and responded to any question or request promptly and professionally. We would recommend this location to other travelers.

Property was as presented however "concierge" really only checked us in and out

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location, private beach and access to snorkeling from the dock. Had issues getting bottled water. Also advertised as all paper products provided but ran out of tp and paper towels and had to purchase more of those items. I think advertising the property with it's own private concierge is a bit misleading. We saw her at check in and check out but we arranged all of our own tours and transportation. The property is in need of repairs. All in all had a great trip but if we go back may look for a different property

Owner's Response: Hi Debra; Thanks for the review! I'm really sorry that you had issues getting bottled water. I had no idea, we normally have plenty of bottles there for the water tank and if not Ress and Vanessa are available to run them over. I will contact you directly to find out what happened and discuss so we can see how that process can be improved so that won't happen again in the future. In regards to Vanessa, we've had a number of glowing reviews in the past two years so I'm disappointed to hear that she did not meet your expectations, I'm also surprised that you didn't reach out to me to let me know about your challenges. I was not aware that you ran out of TP, I'm sorry to hear that. In regards to repairs, as you know we are right in front of the beach and the salt water does make for some wear and tear but we are diligent to make repairs as they become apparent and more than that we are constantly striving to improve the property. With that said we have made a number of improvements to the property over the past 2 years, including paint throughout, enlarging the back window and slider, new gutters, refinishing the deck, adding a dual mini-split AC unit to the family room, adding a new tank-less water heater, replacing most of the electrical system, replacing all switches and plugs, refinishing all of the kitchen cabinets just to name a few of the upgrades. We have a few projects in mind but no guests have communicated any disrepair items that have not been addressed. I'll give you a call so we can discuss recommended repairs and we will get started as soon as the unit has an opening.

Snorkeling paradise

  • 5 of 5

Roatan is a beautiful island and the people were the same. The house did the job for us, we were 7 people (friends and family) and it was nice to have the beach cottage behind the main house to escape to, which was nicely remodeled. Shevy and Vanessa were more than gracious. The snorkeling was great in front of the house, saw a turtle on the 1st day. Good restaurants we went to were the sunken fish and the Oasis. Went to la Sirena restaurant on the East end on a Monday and they were closed. Cayo Cochinos is a must !

Great location, top notch reef access right from the front door/dock. Wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

Great time snorkeling, swimming and watching sunrise/sunsets on the front porch.

Dive boats (Blue Islands Divers) picked us up right at the dock for some of the best dive spots we have experienced. Shevy and Vanessa were very accommodating, gave us some great tips and information that were very helpful, including hiring a chef for a day, which we would highly recommend. Snorkeling the channel right in front of the dock was amazing!!! Can't say enough about the location.
