About the property

Two Bedroom Cabana, Very Close To The Beach

Roatan is one of the beautiful Islas de la Bahia (Bay Islands), located off the north coast of Honduras, in the western Caribbean. Long a favorite spot of divers and snorkelers, for its crystal clear waters and vibrant coral reef, Roatan is becoming an increasingly popular and well known Caribbean holiday destination.

Our property is located in Sandy Bay, on the north coast of the island. The area is secluded and private, located well away from the tourist spots which draw the cruise shippers and partiers, but it is not isolated. Our cabana is part of a small community of houses located in a lush jungle setting, complete with mango trees and almond trees, beside a beautiful stretch of beach. It is not directly on the beach, but just a few moment's walk away. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and enjoy, this is the spot.

Our cabana home is the bottom half of a duplex, located a stone’s throw from the beach and dock on Sundancer Lane. Completed in 2009, it has two bedrooms, one bath room, a kitchen and a living room. Since the pictures posted on this site, we have screened in the deck, which provides a good deal of additional 'bug free' living space.

There is air conditioning in the bedrooms and ceiling fans in all rooms. We have a small flat screen television in the living room and a second TV in the small bedroom, both with cable. We also have a small ipod dock. Wifi is included. We have also installed a small safe in the cabana.

While the area is quiet and secluded, it is located only a five minute drive from two grocery stores, ten minutes from West End, a nearby town catering largely to tourists and divers, and a twenty minute drive from West Bay, the most popular beach on the island. Through our property manager, you can obtain day passes for access to the Mayan Princess, a resort on West Bay, with access to their pool, beach area and parking.

Blue Island Divers is located just a minute or two away down the beach to to the east.

In addition to the numerous restaurants in West End, the “Salty Mango”, which is on the Blue Island Divers' property, is now open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is also a small deli, located in Lawson Rock a short walk to the west. The deli is open for breakfast and lunch. Finally, Solymar beach resort, located about a 10 minute walk down the beach to the east has restaurant facilities as well as water sports and equipment for rent.

We have access to a private, locked dock which you can use as your base for some of best snorkeling in the Caribbean, for swimming or as a shaded spot to set up a hammock and enjoy the cooling breeze coming off the water. The dock is also the perfect spot to sit back enjoy a drink at the end of the day, while watching the sun set over the Caribbean.

Our property manager, Vanessa, lives close by. Depending on when you arrive, she may be able to pick you up from the airport or arrange for transportation (price of transport included for stays of 7 days or more for weekend arrivals or departures) and will help by suggesting itineraries or assisting in arranging trips or excursions. Vanessa can also assist in arranging housekeeping, if desired, for an additional fee.

beautiful sunsets on the dock

  • 4 of 5

We loved the screened-in porch, and the views of the sunsets from the nice dock were beautiful. There was a great variety of condiments provided. We didn't get to spend much time there, since our flight was delayed two days because of weather, and we only had 4 days total. They were kind enough to offer us a credit for the days missed on a future trip.

We love the cabana

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location steps away from the beach. We were able to walk to the Blue Island Diveres and dive or walk to the Salty Mango for a bite to eat.

Cabana was quaint and Vanessa made us feel at home. Thanks Ian for being so attentive to our emails. We didn’t want to come home.

We enjoyed our stay in Sandy bay. The house was perfect. The location was charming. We enjoyed the nearby dive shop as well as the nearby restaurant called ""Salty Mango" Iwould stay in Sandy Bay again.

Awesome escape!

  • 5 of 5

This place has it all. Central location while close enough to either coxen or west end. Steps from the beach and includes access to a private dock that gets you easy access to the ocean down a set of stairs. Covered and open spaces on the dock let's you regulate your sun exposure. The house is a comfortable size with 2 adequate bedrooms and a well stocked kitchen. There was nothing we wanted for that wasn't there. Fresh water, plenty of ice trays, and even a selection of spices. Go to the house first before the store as there were a few provisions we purchased that we didn't need to as they were already there, like coffee filters. Ample parking and a spacious screened porch with table made breakfast outside enjoyable. This place is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist beaches, but close enough you can get there easily in minutes. We can't say enough great things about this place and look forward to checking in again soon. Thanks for allowing us in your home, as it felt very much like someone moved out for a few days so we could use the house. Not a typical condo/resort type rental. Very unique and very much worth considering for a couple or a family.

Thanks again

Great place for peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

On our first trip to Roatan we decided to stay here and dive basically every morning for a week while spending the afternoons doing as little as possible. We made good use of the hammocks on the deck and the dock. The kitchen is really well set up (including an espresso machine!). There were a few kids around so our kids kept themselves busy playing, including jumping off the second level of the dock. The reef nearby is really great for snorkeling; we saw morays and turtles nearby. Beautiful.
