“It's worth the visit!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

We just came back from Roatan.....what a wonderful place to visit. While there, we found
that lovely little store, and it's wonderfull owner, Penny. We bought books from the Island
she was the only one who had them, you could buy a lot of things from jewerly to souvenirs.
If you walk on West Bay beach take the little road just beside Bananarama place and walk to
main street, on your left there is a small shopping mall, and there she is. While you are there
ask Penny to talk to you about a book, a true story called ROatan Odyssey by Anne Jennings
Brown, it all happened on the island. I am sure you will do like I did and buy the book.

“Unique Shopping”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We had the pleasure of finding Penelope's during our recent trip to Roatan. The shop had very unique and local items. I purchased a beautiful dragon fly necklace that I love, and have had so many compliments on! We enjoyed visiting with Penelope as well as hearing about and purchasing the book Roatan Odyssey. Looking forward to the movie! We visited the store on several occasions during our trip and definitely recommend it as a stop you don't want to miss!

Loved the gold ruby ring I purchased at Penny's store. A very lovely selection and high quality items were found there. What a wonderful location to do business. I happened to find her by a nice wandering about by myself after having to visit the doctor next door related to my ear from diving. I stayed on the island myself for two weeks looking and properties all over and then ended up in the east end. At this west end location I stayed in a hotel near by and took a open water dive course as this is a mecca of world class diving. I love love love it there. I would go back in a heartbeat. I did find this store to be the best selection of treasures by far along the whole beach strip. It was up the alley directly off the beach and I had visited mostly all the gift
shops. This by far was the best selection for stones of jewels. Thank you Penny and to your kind staff.

“Don't miss it!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

What a great little shop with fair trade jewelery, candles and locally made crafts...a little bit of everything. My friend gave me a beautiful, hand-made Roatan ornament, made from recycled tin, purchased at Penelope's. It's a great place to find the perfect local gift to bring home. Conveniently located from Infinity bay and with-in walking distance from the beach, in a nice little strip mall with a coffee shop and deli.
Thanks Penelope!
