Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 Bed + Loft Sleeping 6

Bliss on the Beach is a beautiful 2 bedroom (+ loft) home set right on the waters edge in a private and secure site in the town of Oakridge. Easily accessible by car – Oakridge is part of the ‘real’ Roatan - it is a real Caribbean fishing village once home to many of the island Shrimp and Lobster boats.

Within walking distance is a local grocery store, hardware store, Bank and local Bar!

You might think of it as the Venice of the Caribbean as most of the homes and stores are set precariously over the water and most of the travel is by boat.

This traditionally made wooden house features full kitchen with Stainless Steel appliances, A/C and is fully furnished with all ‘mod cons’, including WiFi Internet and Cable TV.

Relax on the large sectional sofa and catch up with reality on the flat screen TV with Cable or dine ‘al fresco’ on the large covered deck right in front of the house with a view to the azure Caribbean Sea and maybe even the mountains of the Honduran Mainland!

If Diving is your goal then we can arrange for one of the local dive shops to collect you from the dock at Pitts Lagoon too – couldn’t be any easier!

Perfect for a quiet and relaxing break for a friends and family, Bliss on the Beach is set in tropical gardens and features a furnished ocean facing deck with comfy patio table and chairs for 6. Hammock and easily accessible BBQ

Kayak or Snorkel the Reef right in front of the house and swim in the sheltered lagoon area just a minutes’ walk away

For no additional cost, upon your arrival our Property Managers greet you at the airport and escort you to Bliss on the Beach. If you would like to stop at one of the larger grocery stores en route, they are happy to do so. They can assist with arrangements for additional amenities, such as outdoor activities, on-site chef or masseuse! They are available 24/7 to help with your needs and to make your stay the best it can be!

The perfect place to call home in our stay

  • 5 of 5

For whatever lucky stars I was given, it was surely in selecting Bliss on the Beach for our first trip to Roatán. The East end of the island was much more to our preference, away from the noisy & crowded West End. We even drove down one day to see if we were missing out on anything there & lasted for maybe an hour.

The home was perfect! Spacious, beautiful, clean & well stocked. We ended up cooking most of our meals which made for a true sense of "home." I'd like to think we were the first visitors to have baked naturally leavened sourdough breads & pizzas there too. Wild yeast does wondrous things in humid climate!

We were really taken by the warmth of the people on the island, & one particularly who looked over the property, a man named Nano. Such a sweet man. One afternoon even had us jumping into the ocean with local kids & lots of quality time with the dogs on the property: Lucy, Diago, Pinky & 2 little pups. A baby hummingbird was also present, in a suspended nest off the pully of the ceiling fan on the deck. I even got the blessing of it with an unexpected poop on my leg.

Walking the neighborhood provided us some sense of what was around, little shops that were easy to walk to & see how the locals lived. We rented scooters to get around on the rough roads. We had such a blast but it prob isn't for everyone as the roads in some places were spotty at best, especially when the rains came.

Some things to do:

-Snorkel out right off the flats from the house... we did a spot at about 3 o'clock from looking out from porch.

-If you dive: go to Subway Watersports in Turquoise Bay Resorts. Darren is the manager there and an exceptional diver. We had dive master Duban who was superb!

-Scooter rentals: Captain Van's. They delivered it to the house by a friendly man name Ceasar.

-Water taxi: try to find a man named David. Everyone seems to know everyone... but ask for him. He'll take you out at the Mangroves & other places & his English is great.

- neighborhood shop (to the left up a few blocks when leaving gate)... Morro owns the shop & spoke good English. A good spot to pick up convenient stuff.

-If you want a great spot to lounge in a quiet but beautiful beach spot: hit Camp Bay

And, big big thanks to Claire & Kevin! You both provided so much great info w/my planning of this trip 6 months prior to us coming. Our experience was just over the top because of you both!!! Thank you so sincerely so! We'll definitely be back!

Everything we'd hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Bliss on the Beach was just that! The accommodations were clean, well equipped and well maintained. Our favorite hang out space was the large porch facing the boat channel and ocean. Kayaking, fishing on the flats and snorkeling right from the house made for an effortless activity options. Clare and Kevin are delighted and made us feel right at home from the first email exchange to the departure hugs. They were accessible for anything we needed while not being intrusive.fabulous property management! The water taxi services, local restaurants, and fishing guides were well recommended and plentiful.

Roatan Adventure

  • 4 of 5

A great place for our 1 week stay in Roatan. Clean, well equipped and comfortable for 4 with a great ocean view/access. Quite private & we always felt safe. There is good walking distance to adjacent villages, BJ's restaurant and free boat ride to the Turtle Shack, also a small convenience store. We had friendly, informative staff onsite who greatly enhanced our stay. A rental car is a must to see the rest of the island and experience the local way of life! Don't bother bringing liquor or wine, it is a better deal in Roatan.

Bliss is a Perfect Name!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Bliss on the Beach was perfect! It was so relaxing which is what we were looking for. The couple who owns the house next door could not have been any nicer or more helpful. The house was just perfect for our needs, it was clean and well furnished and equipped to make the stay perfect. Claire and Desiree were both so kind from the moment we stepped off the plane and they made sure that we were taken care of and that all of our needs were met. I would definately love to go back to Bliss on the Beach again. Thank you for another wonderful vacation! Like all vacations I wish it could have lasted longer.

We're coming back

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this special villa tell most of the story, on the Ocean, busting waves outside the flats, private swimming area, secluded but near Oakridge, a front porch that is hard to leave because of the views, well furnished, modern kitchen, AC throughout with controls in main room and each bedroom, palm trees everywhere, snorkelling on the 2nd largest coral reef in the world, paddle boating 7 meters in front of the porch, fishing 20 meter out, however, there is more to this villa not captured by a photo. Everything is real quality. The beds, the appliances, the bath towels, the sheets and bedspread, all the dishes are just like we have, AC units are super quiet and electronically controlled, large well appointed rooms, all the water toys you need.

We snorkeled at the West End of Roatan dodging people and other boats before we discovered 100 meters from our front door was much better snorkeling, less people, more fish, brighter and more colorful coral. Something must be right when the locals always have a smile verses when we foolishly ventured to the West End to find masses of people and the hustle of New York City. We fly fished the entire island, both sides, only to learn the best bone fishing was 100 meters from our door. Clean, comfortable, great location. We came to fish, swim and relax , we found it and are planning our return trip. Thank you Kevin, Claire and Desiree for all the favors you did for us.
