Our trip was 5 days long. From the time we arrived at the airport to the time we left, the host in charge Melinda took it personally upon her to keep us informed and comfortable. She took us grocery shopping on day of arrival and also did a load of laundry. Voluntarily. The accommodations were right with 2 bedrooms and... More

We stayed for a week in July. The unit was clean and well equipped. The hosts were spectacular. We purchased the island tour and were very pleased with the attention to detail that was given by John and Sue. We can't thank them enough for the great hospitality and knowledge of the island. I would recommend the island tour to... More

Our family spent 13 wonderful days at Hobbies in the 2 bedroom unit. Definitely our sort of holiday, top notch snorkeling off the dock and Blue Island Divers are just a 5 minute walk down the beach (very professional and safety conscious). We spent early mornings snorkeling with our neighbors on the outside of the reef as our kids slept... More

We spent 3 weeks at Hobbies last winter. This was our first "VRBO" vacation, and I would say it was like going to the cottage, but in another country! John met us at the airport, and took us to the grocery store as needed, we cooked and cleaned for ourselves in our own apartment, and enjoyed snorkelling right from the... More

If you are looking for 5 Star, this is not the place for you. However, the great service, friendly atmosphere, and beautiful location make this an especially enticing getaway. Both John and Sue went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable, even bringing us a Key Lime Pie along with fixing us dinner one night with... More

Hello Joyce, we appreciate the review. We are not a five star hotel. but as your review states we are so much more that can't be measured with stars. Home town hospitality with a chance to enjoy the island life style. We know of no other lodgings that have our amenities at such a great value. Our apartments have King... More

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

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.
