Testimonials:Best Vacation Spot for our Family! What a great place. So spacious and gorgeous. A lot of thought went into this home to make it feel like a home. We had so much space for our families. The rooms were huge and the wood work was gorgeous. Having a private pool and beach front was incredible. The drive up to the home along the beach was surreal. We were so close to so many activities including the West End, Zip Lining, Diving and the snorkeling spots just around the house were great. The kids had plenty of room to roam around and play in a safe environment. And the views!! Wow, for breakfast then sitting outside for the sun to go down. My son (8) has now told us Roatan is his favorite place. We will really try to make it back to this place. Thanks!! Tom Vander Zwaag

Our group of friends have been taking vacations together for years. Casa de admirada was the perfect home away from home for our week stay. The location of the house in relationship to all of the different excursions our group took was fabulous. Diving at Tranquil Seas was a great experience and all of the people we met were wonderful. The kayaks were utilized to go out to some great snorkeling just around the corner. Totally miss this place already and hope to return in the future.
A week in paradise

We recently visited roatan the first week of march and boy did we have a good time. The house is absolutely gorgeous with an awesome pool area too. The yards and pool area are very well maintained by the grounds keeper. The house is divided in many different areas so each could have their private own space and there was enough space in the main house for us to all be together too. Everything in the property was in order and liz from roatan rentals was very helpful. I do recommend using the pickup service they provide as some people of our group had trouble finding the house with regular taxis.
The house is very well located with easy access to west end with a short 2 min taxi ride( wich cost 1-2 bucks each way).
I highly recommend this to anyone who's thinking of visiting roatan with a large group.

The villa was perfect and easily accommodated our two families totalling 9 adults. It's accurately describe online and well appointed. The pictures and video are accurate and do it justice. Will, the onsite property manager, quietly worked hard every day to keep the entire property in order. The owners were very accommodating to our special requests.
Roatan Life Vacation Rentals is first class. Thanks Mike, Liz, Chenin and especially Mark who went beyond the call of duty for a wonderful vacation and accommodating our family surprise. It was perfect.
Beautiful house and location

Loved this house and vacation!!
pros - kayaks (2 kayaks for adults, 2 kayaks for children)
close to nice reefs to snorkel
close drive to West End
walking distance to restaurants on Sandy Bay
aC in bedrooms
In a neighborhood with many locals around - great cultural experience
Not "touristy" feeling
Chef Susan was a great experience. Very fun and yummy!
Staff helpful with setting up excursions and any help needed
Lots of privacy in the house - perfect for several families who come together - 5 separate areas
no aC in living area of main house
10 minutes to get to reef by swimming from Sandy Bay or kayaking from Gibson Bight (need to be adventurous)
roosters loud in morning
beach at the house is not white sand - not really where you would sit on beach
Sandy Beach is not pretty, white sand either (Go to West Bay beach for beautiful beach/white sand)
Mostly a grass bottom in Gibson Bight and Sandy Beach until you reach the reef
House is on a dirt road that is kind of hard to get to if you rent a car (very bumpy and narrow)
We were very happy we stayed at Casa admirada. Beautiful house and view. Good location.

We rented the house Jan 25- Feb 1, 2014. We were a group of 6 couples in our 40's and 50's and the home was just perfect for us. It was very clean, had everything we could possibly have needed and plenty of outdoor space to just sit and watch the water :)
If you are content to stay in and do your own cooking, this is certainly a perfect location for that. It's very quiet and you are away from West End and West Bay. We had previously been to Roatan and knew we enjoyed the food in the West End so much that we would be eating out! If you do that, you'll probably want to rent a car. It's a 5 minute drive to the West End and driving is not a problem here at all.
Home is beautiful-- pool great-- beach not so much
Left on 02/23/2014 for a stay in February 2014 | Ann
The house was lovely. Pool was great with nice pool bar. The casita's were wonderful as well. Bbq area was very much enjoyed. Beach not so great. Water not so great lots of turtle grass, shallow the house is situated more on a inlet so no waves and had to paddle out to the reef and open ocean. I would prefer to stay right on the ocean with waves next time and a beach to walk on!!
Would be nice if Pool bar had a ipod hook up with speakers also in the house would be nice for sound system of some sort for ipod music. We brought our own along with a small speaker. Also no hair dryers available in any room. We did not bring any so that was a bummer. We loved having a room for each of us (5 couples) with our own coffee maker, fridge and bathrooms were lovely. Lots of fans and also had air conditioning in each unit and a safe. We stayed in the outside Casita closes to the water. Dogs and pig and rooster were a bit noisy in the early morning hours but you do get use to them after you have been there awhile. We stayed total of 12 days :)
Liz and Mark were wonderful to work with and Mark was exceptionally helpful with all our needs...water taxi to West end, van rental, Susan cooked us dinner, boat excursion with Tim and Michelle was awesome and we paid to have for house cleaners to come in mid way during our stay...Washer and dryer was very useful and we brought some of our own air mattresses for the pool.
Kayaks they have 2 regular size ones and 2 smaller ones...small ones could only be used by a child or smaller women. We were short one paddle also so only could use 3 kayaks. The worst thing for me was I got very very very bitten up by fleas or no see-um's or something in the evenings. I swell up and am still itching 2 weeks after getting home. I used deet spray stayed away from smelly lotions but nothing seemed to help. This did not bother everyone just a few of us. Someone said to put coconut oil or baby oil on so they stick and cannot bite!
