Coral Vista 5 is a great choice for your next vacation. Situated right on the point in Half Moon Bay, most rooms have a fantastic view of Half Moon Bay and beyond. The main level has a spacious gourmet kitchen with tons of cabinet space, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The open plan provides a comfortably furnished living room with a 42 flat screen TV adjacent to the kitchen as well as a dining room that will comfortably seat 6. Glass sliders open to a 400 square foot covered veranda and infinity edge plunge pool sitting above Half Moon Bay and looking out to the reef beyond. Off the entry hall, a guest bedroom with 2 full sized beds opens up to a covered veranda. There is also a full bathroom and utility area with washer and dryer. The second level has 3 bedrooms: the master suite with a king-size bed, flat screen TV, and an ensuite bathroom with a walk in shower. The two other bedrooms, both with queen-sized beds, also have ensuite bathrooms. The furnishings of the villa are beautiful, and the views that will be available to your friends and family are even better.
Why We Love Coral Vistas:
Convenient Location: West End Village is the heart of international Roatan, and is laid back yet lively. It is well developed for tourists, but not tacky or over-commercialized. Once you get here you are just a short walk to restaurants, dive shops, bars, grocery stores, etc., so you do not need to rent a car; you can easily walk everywhere in town. Water and car taxis are abundant and inexpensive if you want to explore other spots, such as West Bay Beach (10 minutes and $3 by water taxi), one of the largest and most beautiful beaches on the island. The reefs that surround Roatan are a snorkeler's and scuba diver's paradise, with hundreds of world class dive spots.
Luxurious: Everything you expect and more: The top 3 bedrooms all have king-sized beds with ensuite bathrooms. The bottom bedroom has 2 singles beds with a detached full bathroom. The whole house sleeps 8 comfortably, is beautifully furnished and decorated, has a well- appointed kitchen, ocean view living and dining room, outdoor living areas; two patios and two balconies, gas grill, beautiful infinity pool, central AC, fans in every room, backup generator, TV and DVD in living room, Egyptian cotton sheets, filtered water throughout the house, 2 sea kayaks, wireless internet, tile and hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings upstairs, and much more.
Easy to get To: Roatan is easier to get to than many Caribbean destinations. The Roatan airport has non-stop flights from Houston, Atlanta, Miami, Dallas and San Salvador; on United, Delta, American and Avianca. In addition to Saturday and Sunday flights, United offers weekday flights from Houston, though the days are dependent upon season. There are also weekly charters from Milan and Toronto, and frequent daily flights from San Pedro Sula on mainland Honduras, with daily connections there from the U.S. on the above airlines. This home is one of the best luxury rental options in Roatan! You will not want to miss out!
Additional amenities include: long term:, allow olb: y, area: west end, beach access....Read more

Perfect location to feel,like a local. Walk to local shops, bars, etc and great selection of eateries. If you prefer to eat at home there is an excellent super market on your way there from the airport and the kitchen has all the amenities you need to make a great meal. Also, you can hire Susan the local chef and she is fantastic.
Home is spacious with a great view of the beach which is at the entrance of the home. Pool is perfect for lounging. Rooms are comfortable and there is wifi that works great for those that need to stay connected. Service by Pedro who takes care of the grounds is outstanding as well.
Best sunsets in town.
This was my second visit to this home and I plan on returning as soon as I can.

Our trip to Roatan was terrific from the minute we got there. Mike and his staff made the stay great and helped with anything we needed. Mike really went above and beyond. The house was fantastic and the views from the balcony and patio were stunning! There were so many places to eat within walking distance and small stores for essentials. We did so many things on the island... Maya Key, Little French Key, Pristine Bay, swimming with dolphins and a driving tour of the island. So much to do and so little time! We could have spent another week. The house had everything we needed and it really felt like home. The pool was the perfect size for our party of 4. Coral Vista #5 is very private and no foot traffic around our house. Will come again as soon as possible!!!

The Coral Vista houses are beautifully designed, professionally managed vacation rentals with the best ocean view location in all of West End. Roatan's West End, one of the few remaining low-rise, low pressure, old fashioned seaside villages, is free of mega-resorts and all-inclusive programming. It's all dive shops and independent restaurants and bars. In the middle of this laid back atmosphere are these wonderfully comfortable, fully equipped, upscale 4 bedroom, 4 bath houses that would not be out place on Florida's intracoastal.
Our family of five stayed in #5. Everything about it worked for us. (A small mechanical problem was fixed immediately by Mark, the full time concierge.) We had no need for a car - it is steps away from any place in West End, restaurants, groceries, our dive shop, and taxis standing by.
We like an independent-living vacation, and we couldn't have picked a better place for it.

Mike Carter with Roatan Vacation Rentals met my family and I at the airport, took us to the grocery store, and then to the house. When we walked into the house one of the first things I noticed was a sign hung on the wall that said 'Paradise Found' and I loved it. When we were shown the house by Mike my family and I truely agreed that we had found a piece of paradise! We had an awesome view of Half Moon Bay and we were in walking distance of shopping and restaraunts. One of my sisters is a scuba diver and we were literally around the corner from one of the most awesome dive shops, Reef Gliders. My family and I snorkled right outside our house. This was one of the most beautiful houses and vacations I have ever experienced!

Coral Vista #5 on Half Moon Bay had everything we needed for a great vacation! The folks at Roatan Life went above and beyond what was expected to make sure we were comfortable. Having 4 full bathrooms was great. In the mornings you would find us migrating to the back patio (coffee cup in hand) overlooking Half Moon Bay. What a wonderful way to start the day! Great shopping, restaurants and bars, & dive shops were all within walking distance.

The service was excellent! Our house was maintained well during our stay and the grounds were beautiful. The realtor was the best!
The home itself was beautiful! It has a spectacular view of Half Moon Bay from the back deck were we had our coffee each morning. The layout of the house was great.
The location of the house is in walking distance of most everything you need in West End. If you want to go to other areas of the island, you just need to take either a taxi or water taxi, which are in abundance.
The house has a safe so you can keep most of your money and valuables safe. It has various kitchen supplies you may need (coffee maker!), and a washer/dryer! All of these things came in handy and I also liked the fact it had a newly installed alarm system!

This place was so unbelievably beautiful. I have never satyed at a cleaner more well equipped place with diving and snorkeling 20 meters away. The island is one of the best dives I have ever had. The food was really affordable in town and the choices were excellent too. The house was huge with unbeloevable views from every room. We will definately be back and plan to stay for 2 weeks.
Mike Carter was a great host and helped us out with a few unique issues while we were there (I lost my credit card in an aTM). If you love diving, snorkeling or just hanging out in a really laid back place with great food, unbelievable weather and really nice people, this place can't miss.

My wife, two children and another couple stayed here for a week this past September. My children are 6 and 3. We dove 4 days with Reef Gliders and Roatan Life was able to arrange not only for an all day babysitter for us, but also had a chef come in 3 nights and cook us dinner. The property is great, with a nice pool, Tv's, internet, restaurants very close by and our favorite item, the beach on Half moon bay. Everything we needed was available in a short walk through West End and the couple of times we went out to eat in other locations, a Taxi driver named "Tex" was available with his mini van to cart us around. I would highly recommend the property and the management company, they met us at the airport and arranged for anything that we asked!

We had a great time at Coral Vista these are the only 5 ocean front homes for
rent on Half Moon bay in West End. The units are really big and nicely
furnished (think 5 star quality for Roatan value). The only draw back is you
have to walk across a white sand beach to get to the house so if your not ok
with walking 100 yards its not for you. They do have a guy that carries
luggage and groceries etc so its very bearable. We found everything close by
in West End. Nightlife, eating, shops and plenty of things to do. We spent a
lot of time snorkeling in front of the house on the coral reef. Overall good
value and a great time. Their are 5 identical homes so it would be good for a
reunion or something.
