“Awesome! Great place for multiple family vacation. Great pool!”

We went to Roatan with three families. Ages 70 to 7 and this house was perfect! Great location, fantastic layout and an awesome pool.

Location was right on Gibson Bite and next to a marina. Very close to the main road for easy taxi service (thru marina) to West end or wherever. Had nice beach. Not great swimming or snorkeling due to bay clarity and see grass, but superb kayaking. Around the corner to the north was a beach that went all the way to Anthony's Key (about a 20 minute walk.) plenty of snorkeling all along this beach. Also two quality restaurants about 12 minute walk from house. Great for breakfast and dinners.

The house layout was perfect for us. Kids stayed in two casitas while adults were in the two apartments and the main upstairs owner suite. We had 12 in our group, but room for probably more. House surrounded very clean and good sized pool. The pool was definitely a highlight. Fresh water, so excellent after a day in the ocean. Could not have asked for better accommodations. Security seemed excellent, especially with groundskeeper and general all around helper Will leaving in small house on the fenced in grounds with his family. There are three dogs on the grounds and sometimes a visitor as well. This is typical of all of Roatan. These dogs are very unobtrusive unlike our dog. They don't look or beg for food. Don't go or want to go inside and don't ask for attention. They are willing to be pet, but never asked for it. However they are around.

We enjoyed snorkeling at West Bay as well as near the house and also took a boat excursion from Artelle BlueCool Running tours. Everything was awesome. Also spent time at West End and did Ziplining at South Shore.

Taxis were $3 a person to West End. Many times we took a Water Taxi back to Casa de Amirada. That was typically $4 a person definitely worth it!

Overall excellent location, safe and incredible house and accommodations! Loved the Pool!

“Perfect Home for our family vacation!”
Reviewed December 2, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This home had a great location, close to everything. Perfect for our family, plenty of room but great open floor plan in the main home for everyone to gather. Enjoyed snorkeling off the reef, kayaking and cooking at the home. Liz and Bertha were wonderful to work with and Will, the caretaker was a great help, cleaning the pool and grounds daily although hardly noticed him working.

“Everything You Need”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This house covers everything you could possibly need. To start, the booking process was simple. I emailed Liz and Mark multiple times during the 9 months between when i booked this property and when we actually stayed and was always promptly responded to. We consisted of a group of twelve, 4 of which where children from 2-9 years old. There was ample space for all of our families to have our own space but were able to come together during meals and pool time etc. The pictures of this place are beautiful but still does not give it the justice it deserves. I commented many times that when something came to mind that was needed it was always there, from paper towels to outlets and fans being exactly where you'd think "hey it would be nice having a fan in the bar by the pool"
Our group came in at different times and they were able to accommodate getting all of us to the house without any worries or hassles.
The caretaker Will was always available when needed but in no way a nuisance. I noticed a few times turning on lights in the evening and if a bulb was out Will was changing it.
We worked with Mark to plan a few of the extra things offered through Roatan Vacation Rentals. The first was an excursion to Maya Key. This was a great time for the entire group. We arrived on the little island from the ferry sent by mark. At first there was a group there from the cruise ship but by 11am they left and our group of twelve had the entire island to ourselves which included a beach area with snorkeling, a small animal exhibit of different animals that had been injured or abandoned,Mayan artifact exhibit, and lunch. It was wonderful because we had the opportunity to just wonder for hours looking at whatever we wanted.
The other thing Mark arranged was for Susan to come to Casa de Admiranda and cook a meal for us. This is a must!!!! She made us the most delightful meal of shrimp and grouper with lots of sides, dessert, and finished by cleaning it all up for $26 a person. Priceless.
The house itself had all the linens, it had a few beach towels if we wished to use them, sample toiletries, coffee makers in all areas including the Casitas and the kitchens were very well stocked with all the basics like salt and pepper etc. The beach and dock were very well maintained but there was sea grass.
The only negative that came about during the entire stay was that upon looking at the filtration system it appeared the water wasn't actually going through the system. We used the ample supply of bottled water that they supplied and was in no way affected by it but i would double check to see that the filtration system is working properly before drinking from the tap. I did email them about it and as fast as they responded about any other concerns we had i'm certain this will be resolved by sundown as well.
Excellent house, excellent island!!!
