I rented Casa del Mar so my husband, daughter and I could spend a week with my sister and her fiancee, under the same roof. We flew from Vermont and they flew from Sweden. We had privacy, quiet, plenty of space to be together, a private beach, and the most amazing reef to snorkel in, a few steps from shore! Town is a 20 minute walk in either direction and if we didn't want to walk back in the heat or the dark, we hailed a water taxi. The best food we found were "baleadas" which are homemade flour tortillas with refried red beans and whatever else you want on them. They only cost a dollar or two! The coffee is wonderful and of course the house has a coffee maker. We would stay there again!
My wife and I decided to book this beach house for our honeymoon in Roatan and we absolutely loved it. We stayed for 5 days and it was so hard to leave!
The driver picked us up at the airport and after taking us to buy some groceries it was about a 20 minute drive to the house. When we walked through the front door it exceeded our expectations. We were impressed by how spacious and beautiful the house was and also how clean and comfortable it felt. We loved the hardwood floors, high ceilings, nice big kitchen, and the hammocks and views off the decks.
We loved the location of the house. It's tucked away in a quiet, private area with green vegetation everywhere. It's a short walk down to our private beach with chairs to lay out on and swim docks. Very peaceful and secluded area.
Orchid Beach is located right between West Bay and West End, so a 15-20 minute walk either way along the beach will get you to some big stunning beaches and resorts, fine dining or local food, shops, and lots of stuff to keep you busy. We kayaked up to West End for dinner and it only took us 15 minutes. The area is also safe with low crime rates, so we never felt paranoid about being robbed.
The caretaker was great, he was always willing to help with anything we needed and even brought us fresh coconuts. The A/C in the house works great which is important because the island can get pretty hot.
Overall we absolutely loved the house and the surrounding areas. There's a lot to do, but it's also a great place to just chill and relax. We definitely want to return to Roatan someday, and we will definitely book Casa Del Mar again next time.
