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 purposely designed 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 rejuvenating rainfall shower heads and private toilet rooms.
The fifth bedroom is a great bunk room that has 24 foot high ceilings and custom-made triple bunk beds that were handmade from local Honduran wood. The bottom bunks are double beds, and the middle and top bunks are twin sized, totaling six beds. Ladders lead up to the second bunk and a platform between the beds, from where the top bunk can be easily accessed. A lofted media area tops this room off with a twin trundle bed, TV, DVD player, and lots of pillows to relax or watch movies. Its bathroom also has a rainfall shower head and separate toilet. Kids and adults alike will love the comfort and space of this room.
Additionally, 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. You will be charged for the electricity you use. 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, the charges will be more than average. 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 $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 for stay of 5 days or more. (One car or van per group. We can help arrange additional cars if needed.) There is an additional $10 charge for the driver to wait while you shop at Eldon's. 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.
