This was our seventh trip to Roatan and Hobbies Hideaway. John and Sue are the best. John picks you up at the airport, takes you to the grocery store, and makes you feel right at home from the very start of your stay. I played golf this trip at the Black Pearl. John was able to arrange a discount on... More

Stayed at Hobbies Hideaway for 3 weeks starting at the end of Feb and definitely made the right choice. I'm sure we sound like a broken record but..."It was GREAT!" John and Sue pretty much treated us like family. Like the others are saying "The patio was a great way to meet your neighbours/family!" Also, ditto on the sand fleas/noseeums,... More

Thank you for your review, Were very pleased you found things clean quiet and comfortable. And you enjoyed your vacation time. Those sand fleas are a big problem on the whole island. We'll keep turning up the sand to make them find a new home. We have found they do like people from the north. Tasty The bug spray does... More

First time to Roatan. My wife and I stayed 9 days at Hobbies in early March. John, Sue and Captain Ron made our visit the best. John's airport pick-up and his help and patience in the grocery store gave us peace of mind. We took a full day tour of the East end with John who showed us things we... More

John picked us up at the airport, and we shopped for groceries so we could do our own cooking. Both John and Sue were great hosts--the chips and salsa were greatly appreciated after our long trip. John took us fishing in his small boat, and we both caught barracuda, which we enjoyed eating! John and Sue even cooked it up... More

Not sure how much I can add to what has been written... We stayed with John and Sue last February, 2013, for a week. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was more than adequate for our needs. It is a great location away from the touristy end of the island. We had a pretty high surf most... More
