About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Beachfront In Wonderful Quiet Setting

West Bay Beach is the most beautiful beach on Roatan Island and arguably the Caribbean. Stay directly on this gorgeous beach and enjoy all the restaurants and amenities of West Bay in an ideal location and you will be thrilled you found it. Villa Joya is paradise and has everything you want or need! The bedrooms include a king size bed and private bath in one room and twin beds and another full bath in the other...huge kitchen, dining, living room and gorgeous waterfront deck and POOL - you will truly be on vacation. Relax on the hammock or deck and enjoy the sights and sounds of the beach. Fully stocked kitchen with spices and new gas barbecue making cooking a breeze, or wander next door and leave the dishes behind. Everything you need including a personal chef is just a phone call away too.

If you are looking for a vacation spot where shoes are optional and the attitude is friendly and relaxed, this is the place for you. The restaurants are fabulous, affordable and all within a one to five minute walk. The water taxi next door can further expand your choices if you feel the need, but truly everything is within barefoot walking distance from Villa Joya.

About Stacy Hennessey

My son and I came to Roatan to learn to scuba dive and fell in love with the incredibly beautiful water and the truly friendly people who live, work and actually visit the island. We instantly felt like we made tons of friends and have remained in contact with many! We live outside of DC and escape to Roatan as often as possible

Stacy Hennessey purchased this condo in 2014

Why Stacy Hennessey chose Honduras

I had been looking in West Bay and luckily this property became available and I jumped. I knew right away that I had found my piece of paradise. It is next to everything yet somehow remains private. It is truly perfect and I feel so lucky to have found it.

What makes this condo unique

In real estate location is most important, and Villa Joya truly has the best. Being right on a white sand beach with the Caribbean blue sea right out front, you can sit on the deck in Paradise. It really is spectacular


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Another Few Weeks in Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

Can't ask for much more. Condo is very well equipped. If you want private you got it or if you want the West Bay atmosfer it's 100 yards away. Private pool is great. Next door is Las Rocas, great people at the dive shop, dive boat, the bar/restaurant has some of the best food in West Bay. Snorkeling 50 yards out your front door is perfect. Third time there and will be back again next year.

Wonderful 2 bedroom condo in a great location.

Las Rocas Scuba Shop - seemingly the most reasonably priced, friendly dive shop - is next door, 30 steps away. And the shallow reefs 200 yards directly in front of the condo are teeming with fish and beautiful coral. Relatively private beach, pool, well kept landscaping, large porch, fun kitchen, TV, internet, washer/dryer -all make it paradise.

Owner's Response: The location is excellent...away from the crowds but yet right next door to a fabulous dive shop and restaurant. I am so glad you enjoyed it too. I love their breakfasts and watching the sunset from their adirondack chairs! Thank you so much for your comments and I look forward to hearing from you again in the future! Stacy

Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! A beautiful short walk on the beach to the busy section of West Bay. Very quiet and peaceful in comparison to this busy part. A lot of fun things to do. Easy in and out. Tons of things to do and see. Or just rest and read on the amazing beach.

Just returned from Roatan and our stay at Villa Joya. The condo could not be in a better location. Good quiet beach but away from the crowds at West Bay. We missed the cruise crowds which come in Tuesday-Thursday. Easy walking distance to great restaurants. Las Rocas right next door has great food. The price of food on Roatan easily the cheapest we have seen in the Caribbean. Condo had everything we needed and the beds were very comfortable. The power did go off a couple of mornings but the generator kicked in promptly. We had a little trouble with operation of the TV but that was it. We were the only people staying at the condo so we had the whole place to ourselves.

Great location on a great island

  • 5 of 5

West Bay Beach on Roatan is a very beautiful beach with good snorkeling on the reef which bends close to shore on one end of the beach. It is also quite busy, with many resorts, restaurants and excursion operators. On cruise ship days there are a LOT of people there. So a great place to visit but we wouldn't want to stay there. Bayside Villas however is just around the point (a 5 minute walk) and it is an oasis of peace and quiet . We loved our two week visit, most days we ventured down to to West Bay for snorkeling or some meals, but we always returned to hang out on "our" beach. The condo really has the perfect location.

The condo is comfortable, well set up with towels, linens, purified water, and a well set up kitchen. Shop in Coxen Hole before coming to the condo because the local shops have limited supplies.

We had excellent meals at Las Rocas (next door) as well as Beachers on West Bay Beach. The Hangover Hut makes great burgers, and for local food the little unnamed restaurant on the road from Banarama to the Hangover Hut is very good and very inexpensive.

We did not bother renting a car, as water taxis run from West Bay to West End ($3-just flag them down from the end of any pier). We did hire a driver for a one day island tour, and in addition to snorkeling every day we zip lined, snorkeled with the dolphins, took a day boat trip to Callos Cochinos and took a Discover Scuba dive. All highly recommended. Don't forget to stop by in the evening at Bite on the Beach (next to Las Rocas) and see the Moray eels which come to visit most evenings.

If it sounds like we had a great time you are right.

Roatan Vacation Rentals was very responsive and easy to deal with. Jamie from Detour Roatan (their excursion coordinator) was also a pleasure to work with.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had such a great time. It is an ideal setting...and your words are by far better than any I have written. I do hope you come back again. I am now going to try the Hangover Hut myself! It is great to hear of new places. I am a big fan of Las Rocas too... Thank you again for being such terrific guests and enjoying this piece of paradise!

Surrounded by one of the world's largest and healthiest reefs in the world, Roatan is a water lover's paradise. Simply walk into the gentle waters and immerse yourself in beauty...whether scuba diving or snorkeling, the warm crystal clear waters are unparalleled. While restaurants and bars are less than a minute away the condo enjoys a certain sense of privacy. You will be so happy you have chosen this spot. It truly is the best!!!

Walk next door to watch the sunset and enjoy refreshments on the dock perched over the water at Las Rocas. Just steps further enjoy all the restaurants and bars West Bay has to offer. Lobster and live music at the Bananarama can't be beat. The friendliest bartenders and specialty drinks at the Thirsty Turtle are a big draw. Spend an evening at the fabulous Argentinian Grill savoring the best steaks on the beach.

If you are thinking about learning to scuba dive, this is the best place to learn. We took lessons at the Bananarama Dive shop and with small classes (just 2 of us) we learned in a safe and professional environment. It opened up a whole world to us.
