About the property

King Suite, Kitchenette, En-suite Bath, BBQ, WIFI, Balcony, 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 sandy lane within 2 minutes walking from the beach. 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 Toucan Suite. The Toucan is a beautifully tiled studio suite; with a King pillow-top bed, 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 Toucan 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.

Great Stay at Seaside Roatan

  • 5 of 5

This is a real review. This was a fantastic place to stay on Roatan. Carolyn was a great host and the property was fantastic - clean comfortable and convenient to everything. We're divers and the pool was terrific after diving from West End Divers, right next door. The kitchenette and grill helped us save money, and Carolyn gave us pointers on everything. Carolyn's driver Corbin was an added bonus, taking us on an awesome tour around the island to places most tourists don't see (Machuka in Punta Gorda!!!) Feel free to contact me for more info -

Thanks Carolyn and Roy - We'll be back!!

Wonderful week at Seaside Inn

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I spent the week at Seaside Inn. Carolyn is a wonderful host and we really enjoyed visiting with her. She makes the best breakfasts for her guests. You could not find a better place to stay in West Bay.

The absolute best

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Toucan at this amazing Seaside Inn for two weeks in February and wished we were still there.

If you want a clean, quite, friendly place with the best hospitality ever then this is the place for you. Carolyn the owner is truly an amazing and caring person. Coffee is promtly served every morning and her breakfast are plentiful. I was a little nervous about who we would have to share the space with but was very pleased to see that most everybody that stay's at the Seaside are mature couples. We meat some wonderful people that we plan on staying in touch with. The place is just far enough from all the noise but close enough to the beach. The location is perfect.

The island of Roatan does have some power outage but rest asure that at the Seaside Inn you will always have power as there is a backup that comes on immediately so no need to worry. If watching TV is important to you you will be pleased with all the chanel choices. Both my husband and I would stay there again and honestly had no issues whatsoever. The only problem was having to leave Carolyn and our friends. The bonus for me was that I made a friend with another vegan and we both live in the same province.

Quiet & comfortable. An ideal location close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn met my husband & I on arrival & made us feel right at home. She was a gracious host, ensuring we had everything we needed during our stay. Having coffee on the lovely covered porch & watching the macaws & hummingbirds was a delight. Our room was comfortable with a quaint kitchenette, just perfect for our needs. Thank you Carolyn for a lovely stay... We'll see you soon. Ian & Cathy

Fantastic stay at the Seaside Inn

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the Seaside Inn (Toucan Suite) at the end of March this year. The accommodations were everything we expected, and more! From the seating area with comfortable furniture and lovely hammocks to the private pool, it was perfect. It is a very well-kept and beautiful building with lush greenery. The location was perfect too, a very short walk down to the beach, shops, restaurants, yet away from all that when we just wanted to go back and relax or chill in the pool. The included breakfast each morning was delicious. Carolyn is a great cook, and Roy served it up right on time with a big smile (great guy!). They were both so helpful in suggesting places to go and things to do. During our stay we had an opportunity to check out some of the other places we had considered staying. it was easy to see that Seaside Inn was the perfect choice for us! We would recommend staying here in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write a such a nice review. I know these things take time and we all have so little of it! It was absolutely wonderful meeting you Brenda and I do hope we see you next year!! I'm going to try and come up with some other breakfast dishes also - something I can practice on over the summer. Roy is a fantastic fellow and I'm so happy you enjoyed his service. Thank you again and look forward to your return!

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and comfortable B&B with attentive and friendly staff. The porch and the pool were both relaxing places to escape to when we needed to retreat from the heat of the beach. Carolyn's breakfasts are outstanding and served on that beautiful porch. Mornings were special dining in the gentle Caribbean breezes with other lovely guests. Evening dining options abound along West Bay beach which is a lovely stroll after a day in the warm sun. If you like to dive or snorkel, West Bay Divers is a great shop on the way to the beach. We can't wait to return and enjoy another great vacation!

Additional information about rental rates

Tax Rate 19.0%

The A/C is separately metered. Some guests don't use the AC so this keeps the rates low. If you choose to use the A/C, it costs about $5-$7 per day depending on the length of time used and how cold you keep it. We read the A/C meter upon arrival and the morning of your departure.

For each week of stay, a $100 cash refundable security deposit is required upon arrival (for each unit rented).

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
