This was my first (of many, I hope!) trips to Roatan, and to Hobbie's Hideaway. John picked us up at the airport and stopped wherever we wanted on the way way back to pick up supplies. We got settled in and hit the reef. It was great having snorkeling right outside the door. You can just walk to the end... More

I stayed for one glorious week May 2-9 at Hobbies Hideaway, and this time I brought a friend. This was my fourth stay with John and Sue, and I’m already planning my next trip back. Our one-bedroom (#3) was especially quiet and private. Plus it was a really good deal. The bed was super comfy, and the apartment was very... More

It was an amazing and relaxing vacation at Hobbies. Thanks to our host, Sue and John we could relax from the time we were picked up at the airport until we sadly had to go home after two weeks in this lovely quiet and safe area. The information provided to us by John gave us the knowledge and confidence to... More

John and Sue are wonderful hosts. Right from the pick up at the airport to helping us out with anything we needed during our two week stay. This is such a plus feature that is unheard of in most travel. Beautiful natural setting, snorkelling out to the reef from the end of our peer whenever we wanted, and relaxing under... More

Airport pick up! A shopping trip for groceries! Easy check in! Incredible ocean view from the front porch! Wonderful first impressions. And the week visit was just as great, The snorkeling, just off the reef in front of the place, was fantastic. The reef was healthy and vibrant. The snorkeling gear and kayaks were a great addition. Hosts extremely accommodating... More

As always, John and Sue were very accommodating, from picking us up at the airport to taking us to get groceries and taking us back to the airport after our restful week. We enjoyed the privacy, as there were no other guests there during the week we chose. Honestly, we don't want to write too good of a review, since... More

The place is in a very untouched part of the north coast area away from the usual tourist zones.(West End) The three rooms I saw are clean, simple, and well stocked. Plumbing worked fine, beautiful rustic wood patio area to hang out. Nice long pier to go out on. John offers both walk and stalk bone fishing flats and inshore... More

Our main purpose for our two week trip to roatan island was to snorkel a healthy reef. We were pleased with the variety of beautiful fish and sea creatures and corals and sea plants. We are avid snorkeled and found the reef in front of this place to be more beautiful than any we have seen. What we were not... More
