About the Property

5 bedrooms - 4 King Bedrooms and a fifth lofted room with triple bunk bed


Here on Roatan's west side, in the Bay of Honduras, the Caribbean sea teems with life below the sea and tranquility and unforgettable sunsets above. Few places in the world are quite like Roatan and at Vivaro-Beachfront you can experience the best of Roatan while savoring a banana daiquiri made from fruit grown on the property, fall asleep to the sound of the ocean, be picked up by your dive shop of choice, and marvel at the daily work of art that the sky becomes at sunset.

***LOCATION: Vivaro - Beachfront is a five bedroom private, luxurious, and spacious home in the heart of West End Village, Roatan. You are not steps away, you are on a large and private white sand beach. Vivaro - Beachfront is an oasis of panoramic views with incredible snorkeling directly in front of the house, a large relaxing infinity pool, luxurious amenities, and a very private but very convenient location.

Top reasons Vivaro - Beachfront is the best value on Roatan
*** Sits on a large white sand beach in a tranquil Mangrove Bight. There is little boat traffic and few people ever on the beach,
***Large infinity pool (plunge pools are normal on Roatan)
***Back up batteries and solar power (power outages are frequent on Roatan).
*** A fabulous local expat as our dedicated manager and a full time, year round housekeeper and groundskeeper. We strive to provide a local experience and we can get anything fixed or help if asked
*** 3 minutes from West End - dive shops, gift shops, grocery stores, beach bars and great fine dining
***Peace and privacy all year - even during the busy season or cruise ship days

Vivaro is in the West End. By car are you less than 5 minutes to the heart of West End Village. There are no comparable private beachfront homes this close to West End. Be careful to understand the location of each property you are considering. Vivaro is a private home - not a hotel. It is privately managed, well maintained, and a personal vacation home that is rented sparingly throughout the year to vacationers who will respect and enjoy the house.

The house is a 4500 square foot luxury home built directly on your own 115 wide by 78 feet deep white sand beach. In front of you is stunning Mangrove Bight and the Meso-American reef - the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere. From your morning coffee on the deck to floating in the creative infinity pool at sunset, you will not want to leave. The house sits on a 3/4 acre lot which offers plenty of space and privacy.

The central great room is spacious with extremely large accordion doors that open onto a sprawling deck with stunning views.

The 2500 square feet of outdoor deck space surrounds a large infinity pool with a tanning ledge and offers spectacular views of Roatan's fabulous reefs and spectacular sunsets. There is ample furniture, from lounge chairs to sun beds, to a large shaded table for all your group to relax, sun, dine, play games, or read.

The four spacious and identical master suites each face the ocean and each has a large deck. Each has a Kind bed. The master bedrooms feature Honduran wood floors, blackout curtains and luxury linens and towels. The large bathrooms with marble counter tops include rainfall shower heads and private toilet rooms.

The fifth bedroom is a large bunk room - perfect for children or a group room. This room has 24 feet high ceilings. Custom triple bunk beds handmade of Honduran hardwood feature two doubles on the bottom topped with 2 twin beds (6 beds in total). The lofted media area includes a twin trundle bed, a television and dvd player, and lots of pillows to relax, nap, or watch movies. This room has a bathroom with a rainfall shower and a separate toilet. Kids or adults will love the comfort and space of this room.

There is a also powder room in the great room and a 7th bathroom with separate shower and toilet outside below the pool on the sand.

The chef's kitchen is large with white stone counter tops and dark Honduran wood cabinets. The GE gas cook top is on a substantial island with seating for four. There are two GE convection ovens. The double door LG refrigerator features UV filtered water and ice. The kitchen has been meticulously outfitted with high quality knives, cookware, dishes, silverware, etc.

Our goal is for Vivaro to be as energy efficient as possible. Every option from LCD lights to energy star rated appliances help to conserve daily usage. The power on Roatan is diesel generated and there are frequent, but brief outages. At Vivaro, because of solar panels and battery storage you thankfully will never know when the power goes out. You will have lights, AC (in the main house bedrooms - AC in loft room and 2 masters on left side of the house will not work during power outages), water, and be able to cook. Internet and TV also go down during power outages - this is usually the only reason we know there has been an issue.

The solar power you use is included. However, it is not enough to power a full house. There is a 60 cent per kilowatt hour charge for your groups electricity usage. The house is solar powered with a large battery back up system. With intelligent and careful use of AC, lights, and fans this charge should be minimal. This means AC only at night or when in the room, AC set at around 22 degrees, lights and fans off when not needed, etc. The battery back up can only support the house at night or during a power outage if it has time to charge. Energy conservation should always be a goal if you want to minimize your charges. The meter will be read upon check in and again at check out. Charges will be deducted from your security deposit.

The central AC (the large great room and kitchen) and the two masters and loft room are not connected to solar. If you choose to use the central AC, there will definitely be usage determined when you checkout. The split unit AC's in the bedrooms are very economical but you should still turn off when not in the room to save charges.

Charges have ranged from $200 to close to $500 depending on the renters personal choices.

There is a $200 cleaning charge for all groups. This includes on average light cleaning 2 times in 7 days and a deep cleaning after your checkout. Sheets and towels will not be changed every day. Water is scarce and conservation required. We expect guests to keep the house and kitchen reasonably clean during there stay. If you desire more frequent cleaning please let us know so we can book a trusted cleaner.

We also include transportation from the airport to the house. (One car or van per group. We can help arrange additional cars if needed.) If you choose to rent cars, we will sent a driver to guide you to the house. We can help you arrange the return trip and quote you a price.

No guests or parties allowed without prior arrangement. Only those listed in the required signed contract and paid for will be allowed at the property.

We are open to events. There will be additional event fees. Please inquire.

Vivaro - Beachfront is privately managed. We do not use a rental company. You are renting our home to make it your own dream vacation home during your time on Roatan. Please call us or feel free to ask lots of questions. It is important to us that our home is the right fit for your group.

*You will need to purchase and bring some household items - shampoo, body soap etc. Some cleaning supplies are provided but we hope you enjoy your vacation and leave the laundry for when you return home with wonderful memories. We have some snorkel gear but not enough for everyone. There might be some pool floats - or the last guests popped them all.
*We love feeling a bit local on fabulous Roatan - meeting new travelers, expats, and locals at Sundowner's is a not to miss activity. Experiencing the small grocery stores, buying some fruit on the street, meeting a local cat, realizing how loud the tiny mosquito eating geckos can be are the some of the many experiences that made us choose Roatan as our vacation spot.

Car: Recommended

Vivaro is near the end of Mangrove Bight road. It is a residential dirt road which means the neighborhood is quiet and private. However, it is also close to West End. The shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and bars of West End are a fun 5 minute car ride.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

Why the Owner Chose Roatan Municipality, Honduras:
We choose this property because of its perfect West End location and privacy. Most lots we looked at were not RIGHT ON THE SAND. The location is also very private - there are no people and no cars (like on Sandy Bay beach) driving down your beach. In fact, we are almost at the end of the road. There are very few spots in West End or West Bay that offer this much seclusion while still being so close to the action and activities that make West End so special.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
It was important to us to be close to West End. A remote location away from a mini market or a sunset bar did not appeal to us. West End is an authentic little village right on the sand with everything you might need. The dive shops, bars, and restaurants are so friendly and welcoming. Roatan is truly a special place filled with a diverse international crowd.
