Jay Jeter and Lavina Arlotta Jeter purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Jay Jeter and Lavina Arlotta Jeter chose West Bay
We fell in love with Roatan the moment we set foot on the island. This is the place to be for scuba diving. The reef is pristine. This property is located in the West Bay area, the most coveted part of the island. It provides a nice quite retreat off the main road but still walking distance to all the area has to offer. The southern facing decks view Roatan's famous Iron Shore, beautiful blue Caribbean Sea and has constant cooling breezes.

The Hummingbird Casita at Papaya place was perfect for us! Jay made sure we were collected from the airport and we stopped on the way home for groceries! The casita has a super comfortable bed , lots of towels and a huge shower! We dove with Jay and it is “ full service “ diving - his captain Carlos takes care of everything. Jay is so calm and patient I recommend him to anyone and everyone no matter your experience leve! Each morning we loaded into the truck for the short trip to the dock where the boat was moored! It’s is About a ten minute walk to the beach and everything you need. ( which for us was a beach chair for the afternoon after two amazing morning dives - some we only had a walk home). We enjoy staying in for breakfast, eating lunch on the beach and then dinner at home most of the time but there are lots of restaurants in west bay or a water taxi ride away in west end. I look forward to coming back to stay again!
My husband and I stayed here for a week, it was fabulous!! Our room was so cute and clean. Stocked with everything and more.
We went zip lining, kayaking, water boarding, to the Gumbalimba Park and held the monkeys and macaws. The beach is beautiful and only a short walk from our place. It was neat watching the cruise boats come in and out from our porch. My husband took a discover scuba class at the dive shop with Jay right on the property. Great, safe diving with Jay and Lavina, Bottom Time Scuba.
Close to action but private and quiet. Flexible small group diving.
We loved staying with Lavina and Jay.They are both so hospitable, friendly and helpful. They gave us losts of ideas and suggestions of what to do.They picked us up and dropped us off at the airport.
Our little studio suite was clean, bright and modern. We had a lovely south facing balcony for sunny delicious breakfasts, made by Lavina, and shady relaxing evenings. The ocean can been seen from the deck and a short walk in either direction takes to you a delightful ocean lookout on the south or West Bay Beach on the north, with all its restaurants and activities. We liked being away from the busyness of the beach but having it so close. Galalimba park is very close and a nice beach alternative. They have macaws, parrots and monkeys that have been confiscated by authorities, people capturing them for pets, which is illegal.
Jay reccomended a local car rental for us, that worked out well for rainy days.
The pool was not installed for our use which was misleading as we thought it would be but, there had been some weather delays. I am sure that it is by now.
Jay did our refresher on the beach and then we did 3 dives with him off their boat. He is a patient and excellent teacher, reviewing all the important facts and safety instructions. He has excellent new equipment and is very flexible about customizing dives. His tanks are steel and hold more air so our dives were all around 55 minutes. The name of his dive shop is perfect because you do have lots of Bottom Time. The reefs are pristine, colourful and the walls, fascinating. Jay is knowledgeable in fitting equipment and making sure you are comfortable. He had some electrical issues with his boat so we did miss a potential dive day and had to endure the cruise ships on the beach. (thankfully it was hot and sunny and the snorkeling is amazing too). I'm sure they were both more frustrated than we were. The boat is new and comfortable. Jay has a great knowledge of dive sites.
They even have sea kayaks that Jay offered to take down to the beach.
The walk to West Bay Beach is along a busy road and there is no pathway. At night it is dark. It is only about 5 min and easy to do. Lavina gave us a flashlight and of course there are always taxis at the little mall. They also gave us a local phone with their number, which we greatly appreciated!
We would absolutely recommend their B&B and their dive shop Bottom Time Scuba.
All the best, dreaming of returning one day
