Overview

About the property

This Fantastic 2 Bed / 2 Bath Condo Is Great For Families And Friends

The condo is located in Sunset Villas, a quiet safe neighborhood in West End. The condo is less than a 1 minute walk to the main strip of West End where you will find shops, more than 20 restaurants, dive shops, bars (great island nightlife), a beach, world class snorkeling, and more. You definitely will not need a car.

There is a beach just across from the main strip but Half Moon Bay Beach is much better and is only a 5 minute walk or so down the road. West Bay Beach , which is the best beach on the island and one of the best in the Caribbean, is a 10 minute water taxi ride away. As far as snorkeling goes, there is great snorkeling from shore in Half Moon Bay and from West Bay. The reef runs the entire length of the island and isn't far out so technically you can snorkel from shore anywhere but those places are where is comes in closest to shore. Dive shops will also take snorkelers out on their boats so you can explore more remote areas. You can also hire any of the local fishermen to take you out snorkeling as well.

The inside living area of the condo is about 1500 square feet. The vaulted ceilings and numerous windows make it look much larger though. It has a large kitchen, breakfast bar, dining table, and living area all in one big open space. There is a large balcony off the living room with a tables and chairs. The one bedroom has a King bed and an ensuite bathroom. The other bedroom has 2 full beds. The other bathroom is accessible from the living room and second bedroom. Each bedroom also has a private balcony.

The price does not include tax or electricity but does include all other fees, wireless internet, pool use, and drinking water.

Electricity is quite expensive on Roatan. So Instead of charging fees for laundry, A/C , extra people, and so forth, it is easier and fairer to charge to for electricity instead. We read the meter at check-in and check-out and use the previous month's bill to determine the charge per kilowatt hour. This amount is deducted from your security deposit.

We found that including electricity in the price made people want to get their money's worth by leaving the A/Cs constantly on at full blast and every light in the place on. Not only is it eco unfriendly, it meant we had to tack on an extra money to the rental rate.

The price you pay for electricity obviously depends on how much you use. I have had one couple use $40 for a 2 week stay and another use $150 in a week. It really just depends on how aware you are.

The internet is unlimited wireless.

We are also an eco-friendly, green rental property. We do as much as we can to reduce our environmental footprint. We have super energy efficient ACs and hot water heaters. We use all natural cleaning products when possible, cut down on plastic waste, have recycling and composting available for renters, support local NGOs that work on environmental and coral reef conservation, and provide eco tips and advice for guests while they are on the island.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time staying at this condo in West End.

It's spacious, pretty, and fully functional.

Wifi and tv was nice too!

The condo is so close to everything, and the pool is perfect:)

It's a gated community also & we love that!

Caroline is great and just an email or phone call away if needed!

Lot's of fun for a couple's getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Roatan is an amazing place, but this condo makes staying on the island much more fun than a hotel room. You get freedom to cook in a spacious kitchen. I went fishing with one of the locals named Luis and I brought my fish back to the condo to prepare it how I like it. I recommend this place for many different reasons: family retreat, romantic couples getaway, sightseeing and adventures. The condo can sleep at least 6 people or 2 separate couples in their own private bedrooms. If you like night life, shopping, excellent local food, and freedom to do what you want, then West End is for you.

Best Rental Unit So Far

  • 5 of 5

I rented this condo off VRBO and did not know what the expect. It was my first trip to Roatan and my first time on VRBO. The booking process was so simple thanks to the property manager who answered all of my questions (SO SO MANY QUESTIONS). After about 50 emails back and forth, I decided to book. I am so glad the manager put up with me.

There was a taxi waiting at the airport that took us to the grocery and then the condo. It was so easy. The unit itself was much better than I could have hoped for. It is huge. The balcony is fantastic. And the kitchen is well stocked with tons of dishes, pots, pans, knives, etc. I was told by the manager that they had just done a ton of updates (new appliances, sheets, painting, restocked the kitchen, etc). It was in great condition. The pool is also fantastic. And the best part is the location. It is so close to everything, about 1 minute walk to the nearest beach. I will definitely be coming back.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for 4 friends. Plenty of space for everyone. Caroline was so helpful and informative and quick to respond to any questions or needs. She's the best person I've ever rented from! Short walk to all the bars, restaurants, and stores in West End but still quiet so you can't hear the cars. The perfect location! There was a rooster near by that liked to start at sunrise, but it added to the charm of island life! The condo came with everything you would need, the only thing I would recommend would be a flashlight...the road to the complex is really dark at night and rocky! We will be back!!

Loved the place so much we came back a few months later

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here in February with our kids. We loved it so much that we came back (just the two of us) for our anniversary. I don't know what else to say other than the place is just great. I highly recommend it.

And the manager, Caroline, is so helpful. She helped my husband organize a surprise anniversary gift for me that included a full day at the spa and a private chef to cook a fantastic meal for us. She even had buckets of tropical flowers delivered (as much as I would like to give my husband credit for that, I know it was her suggestion).

But back to the condo. I absolutely love it. We have already booked another trip in June this time with friends and family. Caroline manages a few of the neighboring units so we have 4 other families that are coming with us in June.

This condo is fantastically located in a quiet neighborhood in the heart of West End. It is less than a 2 minute walk into town where you can find restaurants, bars, shopping, groceries, and dive shops. And speaking of diving, our world famous reef is just a short swim from shore and is great for snorkeling and diving. If you are a SCUBA diver or want to learn to dive, we work with a local diveshop to provide discounted packages to our guests.
