Overview

About the property

King Suite, Kitchenette, Private Bath, Huge Balcony, BBQ, WIFI, West Bay Beach!

Welcome to Seaside Inn - we are veteran owned and operated (USMC!). We purchased this gorgeous property in March of 2014 and we hope to be the best little resort on West Bay Beach.

Seaside Inn is located on a fairly-level sandy lane within two minutes walking distance from the shore. The location is awesome! We’re nestled in the jungle away from all the bustle of the beach but close enough to enjoy the restaurants, bars and activities West Bay has to offer.

We have a new, beautiful private pool! Our guests can lounge around our pool for a lazy vacation day or enjoy a nice evening cocktail after a hard day of playing on the island. Our pool is not open to the public – it is for Seaside Inn’s private use :).

A delicious breakfast will be served during high season, November 15, 2014 – April 30, 2015. We have a wonderful daily special gourmet choice, along with a second hearty choice of potatoes/eggs/ham or bacon/toast or a lighter option: yogurt parfait with homemade granola layered with non-fat vanilla yogurt, topped with fresh fruit. There are also two other “Grab & Go” choices, a very tasty egg/ham/cheese breakfast sandwich or bagel and cream cheese.

Unlike the mega resorts, we are a small private resort which provides our guests with a calm, quiet retreat away from the crowds. We cater to our guests and strive to provide a wonderful stay on this incredible island.

We have 4 rental units available at this time. The Gecko is a detached 1 bedroom bungalow with a full kitchen, living area, bedroom and bath - VRBO Listing #564852 and the Toucan and Macaw are studio suites - VRBO Listings #564850/564851 - each with kitchenettes and a private tiled bath. The Seahorse is a beautifully tiled studio suite with two XL twin pillow-top beds arranged as bunk beds. It has a smaller footprint than the other suites, with a kitchenette and a tiled bathroom with walk-in shower - VRBO listing #762493. All units have private entrances. Rent one, two, three or four units to accommodate up to 10 adults. For more than one unit, please visit VRBO listing #600543. Please visit the individual VRBO listing #'s to see the rates for individual units and more detailed pictures of each accommodation.

This listing is for the Macaw Suite. The Macaw is a beautifully tiled studio suite; with a King pillow-top bed or your choice of two extra long pillow-top twin beds, a kitchenette and a beautiful tiled bathroom with walk-in shower. The kitchenette has a coffee maker, microwave, toaster, blender, sink and refrigerator. It comes complete with dishware and utensils. Your studio suite has modern split, quiet air conditioning and a ceiling fan.

A large covered tiled balcony welcomes you as you exit the Macaw suite. This guest balcony offers seating along with hammocks and opens to the crystal clear pool. You have a view of the jungle where you’ll be watching the iguanas, birds and other wildlife.

Just so you know what to pack and what to buy at the local grocery store, each rental unit has:

• 2 beach towels

• local cell phone

• in-room safe

• hair dryer

• flashlight

• alarm clock

• blender, toaster, microwave, coffee maker

• basic supplies: toilet paper, coffee filters, paper towels, trash bags, dish soap, hand soap, salt & pepper

• 5-gallon bottle(s) of water

• full set of dishes & glasses plus assorted plastic tumblers and wine glasses for use by the pool

• pots and pans are provided in the Gecko Bungalow for the 2 burner stove-top

There is a washer and dryer for guest use (you can keep your luggage to a minimum :) conveniently located on the guest balcony along with a small freezer stocked with cubed ice. Our rates include cable TV (over 100 channels) and free WIFI. All towels and linens are provided. We also have an automatic standby generator to handle any power outage - so don't worry, your air conditioning will stay running all night, you'll always have hot water and feel the cool breeze of your ceiling fan!

Beacher's restaurant and bar provides our guests free beach lounge chairs! You never have to worry about trying to find a beach chair or paying for one to rent! They have the best coconut shrimp and the best Monkey La La’s on the island!!

If you’re a diver, there’s a 5-star PADI dive center located on the beach at the end of our road. If you love to snorkel then you’ll be glad to know that Roatan is surrounded by a fantastic close-in reef just feet from the shore.

West Bay beach is stunning, crystal clear turquoise water with a white sandy beach. And it’s all just a short stroll from our property where there are many restaurants, bars and resorts offering activities such as para-sailing or deep sea fishing! At the nearby West Bay Mall, our guests enjoy the coffee shop and convenience market with delicatessen that also offers a take-out menu!

As you walk down to the beach, the public dock is conveniently located to your right where you can catch a water taxi to the tourist town of West End for more shopping, diving, and of course, more snorkeling! Island tours are available by water and land taxis to whisk you away for a day at the spa, Anthony’s Key to swim with the dolphins, zip lines, the Iguana Park, and much, much more!

Choose us for your tropical island getaway – you’ll be glad you did!

About Carolyn Belfor

I grew up in upstate New York. My father was a U.S. Forest Service ranger, so we moved to Colorado when I was in high school. I then went on to serve 4 years in the Marine Corps, then 4 years of college in Oregon and Arizona. I graduated from Arizona State in 1985. I move around a lot, taking different jobs as a software engineer. My last job was working for Hewlett-Packard for 15 years. I always have vacationed in the tropics and decided that before I got too old, I'd do something different and live in the Caribbean. After a lot of searching, Roatan was definitely the choice!

Carolyn Belfor purchased this house in 2014

Why Carolyn Belfor chose West Bay

I fell in love with this beautiful home and island after looking at several other Caribbean destinations. The home is in the shaded jungle, just steps from the most beautiful beach on Roatan. West Bay Beach was recently named by the 'Island Magazine' as one of the top ten beaches in the world. The island is small, so you get to know everyone and it develops a sense of family.

Map

West Bay Diver's, PADI 5 Star Dive Center, offers a full range of dive lessons and experiences, as well as snorkeling and a full range of Freediving lessons, located a 2 minute walk down our road on the way to the beach.

Very enjoyable, and value

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the seaside inn was from jan 30 to feb 6, 2017. The host, carolyn was amazing. Very accomodating. My room was clean and comfortable. This is a b&b and the breakfasts were spectaular. Each morning guests chose their breakfast choices from a menu and request a service time for the next day. The breakfasts are served outdoors on the very large covered balcony. These meals were amazing. The staff was friendly and did a great job. The pool was clean and well maintained. This b&b is a short walk from the beach. There are great restaurants and bars on the beach. BEACHER's was my favourite. Great cocoanut shrimp. The size of small lobster tails. And a great dance party on saturday night with a local band. Bugs and mosquitos were a non issue. Drinking water is provided and the shower and sink water is from a cistern which everyone uses. This is slightly chlorinated for safety and is fine for teeth cleaning, etc. You are advised not to drink it and i didn't but had no problems at all. Everything is safe. I would highly reccomend this b&b. Thanks, Carolyn and Lena.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in April and had a wonderful time. The room was very spacious and had everything we needed. The location is a short walk to the beach. We loved the covered patio are that was lovely for both breakfast and the evening. I would highly recommend this B&B. Caroline goes out of her way to make sure your stay is great.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Perfect. My husband and I traveled to Roatan for our honeymoon and we had the most relaxing trip of our lives.

Carolyn was fantastic. She arranged for her approved taxi driver to pick us up from the airport and bring us grocery shopping. Carolyn also greeted us as soon as we arrived and answered any, and all of our questions. It was also great that we had two fantastic neighbors in the bungalow to share breakfast with (Tom and Brenda! We hope to see you on our next visit!) Speaking of breakfast... Wow. I repeatedly asked Carolyn if I could take her home with me. Her breakfasts were the best I've had in my whole life. Every morning was such a treat!

We had everything we could have ever thought we might need provided for us! Water, ice, fresh towels, fresh sheets, blender, toaster, fridge, a giant DVD rental collection to use at night, washer and dryer (which was so nice to bring home clean clothes!), private pool for b&b guests only! Which you would say with the beach SO close why would you need it? Well it was the best thing first thing in the morning and before bed. Hammocks to read in over looking the pool were fantastic for the mornings as well!

The room was immaculate and so was the entire property.

My husband and I were able to snorkel right off the beach over the reef. He was also able to scuba dive with West Bay Divers. He had an amazing time with Kernan and Zach.

Perfect location, barely a walk to the beach and when you got the the sand; the restaurant Beachers made sure that Carolyn's guests were taken care of with beach chairs and umbrellas!

My husband and I used to talk about traveling the world. Well that's over. Now we only talk about our return to Carolyn's and Roatan! When you've found paradise stick to it!

Thank you Carolyn for such a lovely stay. We can't wait to come back!

Lovely property, great owner!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the macaw suite for 7 nights, and had a great time in Roatan. The property is on the far west end of west bay, which seemed to be less busy that the middle or eastern side, but it's quite a walk to the far west end where the best shore snorkeling is. If you are planning to dive, it's very close to west bay divers (who are fantastic!). The included breakfast was a nice touch, including yogurt, granola, toast, bagels, cereal, local coffee, fresh squeezed juice, and delicious fresh fruit, even some bananas that came from a tree on the property! The pool is great and we loved the hammocks on the patio.

The only downside to the hotel, is the distance from the beach. It's not that far, but it's up a bit of a hill, and after long day in the heat, it was no fun to trudge back up to the room. There is also a very smelly dumpster you have to pass every time you walk down. And at night, don't forget your flashlight, because it's not lit, but if you stop on the cement bridge and look up, the lack of light gives you a breathtaking view of the night sky. The distance from the beach also makes it really quiet and peaceful.

Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: So happy you loved the property. Yes, the open trash containers on Roatan are an issue since they don't have 'real garbage trucks' - but I did see one in Coxen Hole the other day, so hopefully soon the restaurants can have real dumpsters :). At least on Roatan, the trash is picked up twice a week and they even clean along the roads!! As you said at the end of your review, sitting back a bit from the beach makes for quiet and peaceful. Yes, the walk is flat for the first 200 yards, but the last 100 yards does go up 20 feet (from 30' above sea level to 50') - thank goodness we aren't up on the mountain behind us! :) I was so happy that you went on to get your open water certification - congratulations again! It was nice to see you enjoy the pool and good to hear you enjoyed the breakfasts.
