West Bay, Roatan
Additional Location Information
Linda Vista is a very private community of about 7 or 8 homes on this particular road going down the hillside and ending at the Beach. Most of the homes are vacation rentals however a few have permanent residents. Being in WestBay and as private as it is it is very secure and exclusive. If you want to be a very short distance from West Bay Beach but don't like to be at or next to a resort than this is the house for you. It is a very short walk to West Bay beach or the private beach at the bottom of the hill. You have access to water taxi's from the dock at the bottom of the hill and you can be in West End within minutes. If you want to explore other parts of the island besides WestBay and West End then I would recommend a rental car but regular car taxi's are available so it is not a necessity unless you are going to be making a lot of trips to the grocery store or exploring the East end of the island. There is a small grocery store in West bay at the West Bay mall that has a deli with meats and rotisserie chickens and the basic necessities for preparing basic meals. They have a lot of the basics like breads, pasta, milk, etc, and they are only about a 2 minute car ride away.
The West end of the island offers a lot to do. First of all there are 2 Zip lines within walking distance. One (Southshore- the best one) is literally at the top of the hill from the house. You could walk up there in a few minutes. Of course there is fishing, diving, snorkeling, parasailing, boat tours, and out-island trips all of which will pick you up from the dock at the bottom of the hill once arranged. I highly recommend a trip to "Cayos Cachinos, or pigeon Cay.
Of Course if you are looking for night-life then the West End is the place to be any night of the week. They offer dozens of bars and restaurants all on the same street which you just walk up and down like Bourbon St. in New Orleans. However, if you are the type of person that wants to rent a private house with private beach access it is more than likely you will prefer the quiet life, or maybe not.
Please e-mail me with any questions before booking. I also have a video walk through of the house available, it is posted on this page.
As far as transportation and parking goes. There is parking at the house for a rental car or Truck. If you decide not to get a rental it is a good idea to have your taxi from the airport stop in Coxen Hole Plaza Mar at one of the major grocery stores so you can get groceries, booze, sodas, snacks, etc. They will charge a small amount to wait for you and it will save you a trip all the way back into town. Generally it is a flat $20 from the airport to West bay. Sometimes if I am on the island I will pick you up myself at no fee.
Some notes worth mentioning: There is a Flat screen HD TV available, however this hillside has not been supplied with cable TV. Most people don't come to Roatan to watch TV but if you like the TV can be set up anywhere in the house you wish and there is a small collection of about 2 dozen recent popular movie DVD's, and content available via the computer that hooks up to the TV. If you purchase internet there is Wifi available through this same computer and you can stream Netflix or Hulu plus if you wish to.
I also have a smartphone available with a local sim card in it which you can use for free if you leave a deposit for it. This will allow you to make local calls for taxi's or to arrange trips or excursions etc. You can also make calls to the U.S. and Canada pretty cheap.
Electricity is expensive on the island so most rental will charge a lot more or take a deposit and just charge you for the electricity you use. I prefer to just take a deposit and charge you only for the electricity you use. Once your electricity costs have been subtracted you will receive the remainder of your electricity deposit back. The nice thing about this house is it has small split units in each bedroom so you can close the door at night and just air condition the space you are in. If you are smart about the air condition use the costs are not that bad. The hot water is propane and all the lights are CFL so the brunt of electricity use is A/C.
Should you stay here I will communicate with you and answer any questions you have to make your trip the ultimate.
