This is the most unique condo in West End. Located in Sunset Villas, this spacious 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom condo is truly one of a kind.

The condo also comes with a cell phone that can make and receive inexpensive local and international phone calls and wireless internet.
We do not include electricity in the rental price. Instead of charging fees for laundry, A/C , extra people, and so forth, it is easier and fairer to charge for electricity instead. We read the meter at check-in and check-out and use the previous month's bill to determine the rate. We found that including electricity in the price made people want to get their money's worth by leaving the A/Cs constantly on at full blast and every light in the place on. Not only is it eco unfriendly, it meant we had to tack on an extra $300 / week to the rental rate. We include an electricity allowance that covers normal living. This includes the use of the fans, fridge, stove, lights, pool pump, hot water heater, and some A/C.
Assuming the ACs are only used in the bedrooms at night and the lights are turned off when not needed, the electricity should be around $10-$15 with 4 people in the condo.
We also add a $10 / person annual Marine Park User Fee. The money goes to a local Non Governmental Organization that works tirelessly to protect and conserve Roatan's coral reefs. Each guest will be given a bracelet or token saying that you have paid. If you plan on diving, simply show this to the dive operator so you will not be charged twice.
As part of our rental service, we can arrange for anything and everything you want to do while on the island. We have lived here for over 7 years and know everything about everything on Roatan. We can even stock the refrigerator with your favorite foods and drinks. What better than to have an ice cold beer waiting for you upon arrival?
Damage Deposit $500 per stay Fees for additional guests may apply.
The price does not include electricity. It does include all other taxes, and fees.

This was my first visit to Roatan; my experience was awesome. The accommodations were well beyond my expectations, very large, clean, well-appointed kitchen, beautifully furnished, comfortable beds, plenty of linen etc. You feel completely at home. The deck area is huge and very well furnished as well, incl a W/D. The design of the penthouse area is beyond belief. Complete privacy is ensured by the beautiful gardens surrounding it; from the pool you feel as if you could reach up and touch the moon and stars... The perfect location for a "destination" wedding, honeymoon or a great family vacation. There is lots to do, great restaurants, the beach, shopping and snorkeling sites right around the corner. Definitely recommend this property. Read more

This condo was even better than expected. The pictures don't do it justice, it is considerably larger than I expected. If you like West End (and I do), this is the best spot. The inside is great on it's own, but the roof garden, outdoor kitchen & pool make it a one-of-a-kind in West End. Spectacular. I spent a great deal of my time up top where there is plenty of shade from the pergola with thick flowering vines, the pool is great especially for kids as half of it is only 2 feet deep, the other half 4 ft. There is always a breeze it seems.
I would return here in a heartbeat! Read more

Entering this condo felt exciting and impressive. It was clean, well maintained and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and modern. There were fresh linens and ample towels. Every small luxury was thought of by the very approachable and accommodating owner. Our whole family enjoyed the vista from the large corner balcony - on one side a canopy of trees and on the other the Caribbean Sea. We especially enjoyed the privacy of the rooftop tropical garden complete with swimming pool, BBQ and exotic plants. This condo is conveniently located close to the beach, shopping, restaurants and night life. This trip was a memorable experience and definitely will return and tell our friends and family about it. Thanks for opening this space for us. Read more

This is a perfect place for a familly or a couple. A place for R&R; or fun filled activities. Everything you can imagine is close to the community of West End. The condo was well equipped and offered a very comfortalble living experience. We loved every aspect and it was everything the owner Peter promised. The kids enjoyed snorkling right off the beach then coming home for snacks and a dip in the pool. I loved the BBQ and the fresh fish I caught. My wife liked the clever unique shopping experience. For sure we'll be back. Read more

I''m very pleased to give this a five star rating as it's everything and more than we expected. The days were full of fun and adventure. The nights cooler and the sky always clear. The private rooftop pool and garden were an added bonus. Some nights we strolled the streets and enjoyed the music, sights and smells of the outdoor cooking. The condo itself is spacious clean and well appointed. It's decorated with Honduran artifact which was nice to see. This was a 2nd honeymoon for us and we're looking forward to coming back for our 3rd and 4th. Read more
