About the property

Beautiful Luxury 3 Bed Waterfront Condo On Site Pool, Dock, Perfect Location

All Mangrove Dock condos are luxuriously accommodated with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, very large living area and beautiful hardwood kitchens. All GE (US standard) appliances and soft leather seating give the condo every comfort required in such a beautiful location as Mangrove Bight/West End. The condo is fitted with local art and sculptures to enhance every aspect of its comfort. A full laundry room is located within the condo to add to your comfort. The condo faces East and enjoys the wonderful prevailing breezes all year round...central a.c. throughout but this is not required most of the year as a consequence of our breezes. The large glass sliding doors leading from the living area lead to the balcony overlooking the water, dock and gardens. A swimming pool for the private use of Mangrove Dock residents is located approximately 20 feet from the building and only 20 feet from the water front and dock. A boat mooring is allocated to all condos should anyone wish to make use of this facility. The three bedrooms are set up as two kings and one queen room, linens and towels and beach towels all supplied for your use. Just bring yourselves and enjoy! For your information we do have several other condos available for big family gatherings or events on Roatan....we have currently five and offer specials at different times of the year.

About jackie sampson

We are an English family who decided to leave the dreary English weather and start somewhere new for a challenge and a different lifestyle. The development is totally family run and goes at our own pace. ....it is such a wonderful site.

jackie sampson purchased this condo in 2006

Why jackie sampson chose West End

We are the developers of this resort and have so many people asking for rental accommodation from us that we decided to start to rent units due to the fact that there are no other units like ours. They have comfort, luxury, waterfront and so very close to the hubbub of West End....just perfect for holidays.

What makes this condo unique

Mangrove Dock is wonderfully positioned so very close to everything in West End but in a peaceful location just 3 mins stroll from the restaurants, bars, dive shops, beaches etc. The views are spectacular and the breeze hits us full on to keep us cool and our electricity bills down. A wonderful spot to enjoy the benefits of West End without the noise or lots of people ... quiet and residential. Everyone knows everyone else here which is like a big family. We have our own mooring for each condo so boats can come and go, easy access to the reef and snorkeling.... Our own swimming pool is used solely for the residents who can relax after a hard day at work or our guests after their busy day enjoying Roatan. . It is just a brilliant spot all round.

Just The Best!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at many VRBO homes over the last few years and none were better operated by Jackie and her cohorts - Bonnie and Ron.

When you go to Roatan beware that much of the dealing is in cash, and the ATM machines, if working, only provide apps $200 USD daily, so we wound up going to the ATM at least every other day - and it is a trip. To help us, Jackie permitted us to wire funds to her account in Roatan, and we then withdrew the cash. That is just an example of the hospitality Jackie provides. I can go on and on but I think you get the point.

The condo was great, great views, very tidy, modern and new.

Rotan is really a special place - the people are perhaps the best thing - and Jackie is a great example.

There should be 6 stars.....

Great West End Property

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of scuba divers and this was our first trip to Roatan. We were met at the airport by Jackie's driver and stopped for a shopping trip at the large grocery store on the way to the condo. We were pleasantly surprised by the roominess of the condo! It is very comfortable, pictures do a bad job of conveying size. The condo is very well equipped in every way. The beds are very comfortable and everything was in great condition. The grounds are very nice and well cared for. The pool was crystal clear, a bit chilly with the rain but quickly became quite refreshing. The views from the balcony are spectacular. Jackie was out of the country with some personal issues, but still communicated via email with us. Her backup broke her leg the day before we arrived and Jackie was still able to arrange for someone on the property to help us get settled in. We did not need the A/C for the entire week as it rained and was quite pleasant. Our total electric bill was only $24. As mentioned, we are scuba divers and we dove a week with Seagrape Plantation Dive Shop which is literally right next door, perhaps a 20 second walk. I couldn't be any more convenient, and they are a wonderful dive shop and I highly recommend them. Walking into West End takes just a few minutes and we were met with friendly people and great food. Don't miss the Cannibal Cafe's fare! Mexican food like we have never tasted before. Night time at Mangrove Dock is completely silent, just far enough away from the din of West End bars. They have a security guard that is on duty all night and we felt very safe. On our last day we went on an island tour with Cleve (check next door at Seagrape for his contact information) He gave a wonderful insightful tour and then dropped us right at the airport. We will return for diving with Seagrape and most definitely lodge at Jackie's place. Regardless of your reason to be in West End, Mangrove Dock is a must stay! Highly recommended.

Great location and hostess!!

  • 5 of 5

Great spot in the West End of Roatan! 5 minute walk to all the West End dive shops and restaurants/bars. Well equipped condo, including the kitchen, overall very spacious throughout. Also a great "cross flow" breeze that flows through the condo. Even in the hot summer months, no need for A/C during the day, but when that breeze calms down at night the A/C is needed.

One note about the 3rd smaller bedroom, there is no A/C vent and the A/C system is in the closet making this room stuffy/hot and noisy, not ideal for sleeping. We had a member of our party sleep on the couch instead. BUT as soon as we alerted Jackie (Awesome lady by the way!) She immediately remedied the situation and put a "real" bed in the living room that was very comfortable. Problem solved AND she is working on putting an A/C vent and soundproofing the closet which would completely remedy this issue.

Jackie was very helpful and sincerely wanted us to be comfortable and did everything she could to ensure that. Overall she was a great hostess and made our vacation more enjoyable. I would definitely return to this condo and highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: We are always asking for feedback for our condos and try to rectify anything as soon as we are aware of it. Jeannie was great in this respect and we have now dealt with the problem.......and have upgraded the a.c. system as a consequence. Thank you. We have also installed a fibre optic internet system (for those who have to work without Wi-Fi but need the Wi-Fi for the rest of the family), together with a hugely expanded level of cable system.......the gardens are now looking lovely and there are very shortly to be the last three condos coming into the rental pool......so ask if you would like to look at one of the other condos as well.....all different prices.

Best vacation house and Hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is the best location and home we have stayed in on our Carribean vacations. The amenities in the home are top notch. The pool is great to cool off on a warm day. Very quiet location and close to Sundowners for happy hour beers and cocktails. Fished with Peter and Arthur 7 days and loved it and had good success. Peter and Jackie are great hosts and super knowledgable regarding the island. They went out of their way to make our stay very memorials. Will stay here every time we go to Roatan in the future. Food was excellent on the island Argentian steakhouse, Oasis, Chicken Shack, C Level for pizza are my recommendations, Thanks Jackie and Peter and of course Arthur.

Great Stay Once Again

  • 5 of 5

This review is a bit late…but you know what they say better late than never. We rented this wonderful condo at Mangrove Dock for 5 weeks, January 26th till March 2nd and loved it.

Jackie & Peter are wonderful hosts and if you have any questions or something is not quite right just let them know and they will get you the answer if they don’t already know it or get it fixed promptly.

We were on the second floor which was really nothing of a walk up…even with my bad knees. You enter into a spacious foyer which is a great place to keep your shoes & other miscellaneous stuff like water toys/dive gear. Off of the foyer is the laundry room with washer, gas dryer, broom & mop. There is also one of those stand up clothes dryers that we used all the time. From there it’s into the big kitchen that has everything ++ you’ll need during your stay…loved that the fridge dispensed purified water and had an ice maker, we never ran out of ice. From the kitchen you could look right through to the dining room, living room and straight outside as it is open concept. The three very good sized bedrooms ran down one side of the condo, with the master being the biggest.

It’s no more than a 5 minute slow stroll to the beach, with lots of restaurants, dive shops & variety of other shops/stores. We went out all most every day, sometimes just to go diving, sometimes swimming, sometimes to take a water taxi to West Bay which we did a few times. Nothing is out of reach. We had stopped at Eldon’s (big grocery store) on our way to the condo so had lots of supplies but we found anything else we needed could be purchased at the Woody’s convenience store only 5 minutes away.

We rented a car & mopeds a couple different times and it was nice to be able to park them right at Mangrove Dock and know that the night watchman would keep his eyes open for them and look out for us also.

The area around Mangrove Dock is quite so you can always get a good night’s sleep with the windows open as there is always a nice breeze keeping the temperatures down.

Anyone visiting the island needs to learn to slow down and go with the pace; nothing is done fast but in this heat who wants to go fast!

Enjoy your vacation…we sure did and can’t wait to go back again next year!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in this beautiful condo in January 2015 and we could not have been happier. Jackie and Peter were excellent hosts. Not only does the condo have everything you could possibly need, but it is also perfectly located a 5 minute walk from West End in a very peaceful, quiet cove. For low-key travelers looking for a relaxing vacation, this spot is perfect. We were looking to stay far away from West Bay where the cruise ships let off and we found it! We watched the sunset from Sundowners bar every day (another highly recommended spot!) and based on Jackie’s recommendations, found delicious restaurants. We also dove with Sundivers. Dive with Ellie, she is wonderful! One word of caution, and to be fair Jackie warned us before heading down to Roatan, but the ATMs are unreliable at best and fraudulent at worst. You should bring cash. Other than that, the pictures are true to form and the condo is lovely. All in all, our first trip to Roatan was a huge success and Mangrove Dock played a huge role in how happy we were! Many thanks again to Jackie and Peter.

West End is a small town with a great village feel. It has many bars, restaurants, street food options, snorkel areas, fishing, horse riding, zip lining, paddle boarding, sightseeing, boat trips, so many options for your stay here. Being such a compact community, we offer most options without the necessity of a vehicle, which makes a vacation stay that much easier. Taxis are plentiful should you wish to take a trip further down to the East of the Island which we encourage our guests to do, if only to see the difference between the two areas and experience some of the amazing sights on Roatan. Mangrove Dock is located just 3 minutes gentle stroll from the beach, the famous Sundowner's beach bar and all the restaurants, fruit stops, dive operations...perfect for access but just wonderful and peaceful There is horse riding about 1/2 a mile outside the village and trekking is great fun as is the zip lining through tropical forest. West end offers sandy beaches but if you wish to go to West Bay it only takes a few minutes by water taxi which can collect you right from your front door here at Mangrove Dock
