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 West Bay

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

Relaxing, safe and perfect even with a toddler!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 19 month old toddler stayed at Stacy's condo for a week and loved every single minute of it. We were nervous about taking our little one to Roatan, but we ended up having a blast. It was really nice of Stacy to provide a pack'n play/crib! Location is perfect, it feels secluded as there are no neighbors or developments to the right side of the condo. However, we were only 2 minutes away from West Bay beach, resorts and restaurants. It did feel like we had our own private beach. I loved that the condo was 1 story and very spacious with wonderful ocean view from large kitchen and living room! This unit is the one located directly in front of the pool which was nice so I could sit on the deck, while husband and son played in the pool. Yes the pool is small but it is just fine for soaking and watching the sun go down. Lots of beach towels are provided. We cooked many meals and had everything we needed in the kitchen. Comfy beds and soft linens were appreciated!

We walked (10-15 mins) from the condo to Gumbalimba Park via the road and recommend it! Gumbalimba has wonderful grounds and many animals. They also have a awesome pool and pretty beach! We also went to Little French Key and Anthony's Key! Little French Key is awesome!

We truly enjoyed our stay in Roatan and will be back!

Great location - great home base

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect, very clean and had everything we needed! Towels, a well stocked kitchen, games, washer/dryer and a wonderful deck with a view. It was great to have transportation arranged for pickup at the airport and a stop at the grocery store and on to the villa. Easy to walk to West Bay for snorkeling, eating and picking up what else was needed at a market. Snorkeling in front of the condo was a great addition as well as checking out the crabs on the beach at night(the boys loved it!). Easy access to water taxi next door and the dive shop picked us right up at our beach each morning. We will certainly look to stay here again!

Best spot on the beach in my opinion. If you are looking for more hustle and bustle, stay on the other side of Las rocas. Here you can have your cake and eat it too. Be in the thick of it when you choose or, come home to a quiet place with a private pool.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

If I tell you how great this villa and its location is, we'll probably never get to rent it again! It was perfect for us, ground level with a nice sized deck with comfy furniture, clean, had everything we needed, gas grill was used every night for 2 weeks. Stacy supplies paper towels, tp, hand soap, dish soap, bath soap, bottled water dispenser, tons of bath and beach towels. Her manager and caretakers - Steve, John and Tullio - were all wonderful and attentive. Ceiling fans in all rooms were plenty sufficient; we only used a/c at night in our bedroom, and mostly to mask outside noises. Having a generator is a big plus - we lost power twice in the 2 weeks, once overnight and into the next day. That means no wifi capability, but being able to have electricity was a big bonus. Wifi is password protected, and Stacy leaves a cell phone for use on island if needed to call Steve, her manager. This villa is part of a small, 6-unit parcel, and it is in SUCH a good location! Many vacationers walking by on the beach stopped and asked us about it. It is right on the dividing line between West End and West Bay, so it is very quiet and "off the beaten path" of the main busy, active beach with all the resorts/bars/restaurants/vendors just a short walk away. We would walk down the West Bay beach daily to snorkel down in front of the Grand Roatan resort and all along that reef. The walk is about 15 mins. on a white, sandy beach - no sandals required! We would snorkel in the afternoons right in front of our villa, swimming through a large patch of eel grass (yes, we did see a white spotted eel there one day!) to a beautiful "garden of coral" past the boat channel. It wasn't difficult to swim past the boat channel, we just always checked to be sure no boats were coming near us, and they did seem to be cognizant of us anyway. The snorkeling everywhere was just wonderful, beautiful coral and lots of every kind of reef fish, spotted eagle rays, some eels, lobster, etc. My husband could fish for bonefish right from the beach near our villa. The walk to West End would take maybe 30 mins., or there are water taxis that you can catch right from the dock at Las Rocas next door ($3/pp). There are MANY activities in which to participate and the vendors along the beach by the resorts ply you with their offerings! USD were accepted everywhere we went. We were very happy with our first visit to Roatan, and staying at Stacy's villa was a large part of that.

Great rental.

  • 5 of 5

Close to everything, but away from it. Short easy walk to everything. Water taxi a few steps away, $3.00 per person, one way. We took to West End several times. Condo well stocked. Staff available, when needed. They will restock paper products, laundry soap and dish detergent. Some spices available. Plenty of beach towels and snorkeling equipment. Bring a float and John John will fill for it. Bring bug spray. We will be back

Location! Location! Location!

  • 4 of 5

This beachfront property was in the perfect location. Very convenient to West Bay beach, restaurants etc. The unit is very private. Sunsets are amazing! The unit is very clean and the owner is easy to work with and responds to any inquiries or questions very quickly. There are several local people that you will have contact with for transportation or any issues you may have. By all means, try the Empanadas (sold on the beach by the people with the coolers). We had 7 with all the fixins’, delivered right to our deck one day ($20 USD). Although the unit could use some updating, it was fine for our use. We stayed for 12 days. The snorkeling from West Bay is very good and only a 15 minute walk down the beach. Have fun! Thanks Stacy!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you discovered the empanadas. They are my favorite too! While snorkeling at the other end of the beach is lovely, we actually prefer just going out front to the wall. The reef here is untouched and full of life. Next time you’re here, definitely try it! Last year we did update the kitchen with a new floor and granite countertops and are always replacing pots, pans, plates, glasses and knives! The villa was also just painted both inside and out and all new furniture, but like any home, especially in the tropics, there’s always something to do! I do look forward to your next visit and thank you again!

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.
