Beachfront home with beautiful reef for snorkeling and diving circa 50 yards off the end of the dock.

Some of the best snorkeling and diving in the island is located about 50 yards off the end of the dock. Starfish, turtles, hundreds of species of tropical fish.

Located in front of spooky channel this location allows guests an exceptional snorkeling and diving experience with access inside and outside the reef.

We chose this location for its access to one of the best diving and snorkeling locations on the island, proximity to the airport, grocery store, West End, and West Bay. You ll love my place because of the outdoors space. My place is good for couples, families (with kids), and groups.

If you have never been to Roatan before and you prefer more touristy areas you may want to stay in West End or West Bay for your first trip. People who prefer 1st/world definition of 5-star and don t mind more heavily trafficked tourist areas will prefer those more touristy areas.

Mayan Princess Update

Our guests have access to the Mayan Princess resort during the weekdays Mondays to Thursdays with no prior reservation made. However, if you would like access during the weekends (Fridays to Sunday), you would need to make a reservation with our Concierge at least 24 hours prior.

The resort has a maximum capacity of admittance, hence, your reservation can either be accepted or rejected.


1. It is pretty quiet there at the house?

Yes, we chose this home because of its close proximity to the airport (circa 7 minutes), grocery store (circa 5 minutes, West End (circa 5 minutes, and West Bay (circa 15 minutes), yet it s large lot and fantastic reef, without all of the tourist/cruise ship crowds of West End and West Bay.

2. Not too busy with people accessing the beach area?

Not at all. Though if you are looking for swimming off the beach it s not ideal. We don t kill the sea grass like they do in West End/ West Bay. This area is ideal if you are looking for great snorkeling and swimming this home is right in front of one of the best snorkel and dive spots on the island. Spooky channel, circa 50 yards off the end of the dock.

3. What s the best way to get around town?

We have the names and numbers of a handful of drivers. Typically we just walk to the road, circa 3 minute walk and catch a taxi. I rarely rent a car when I m on the island, however, we have plenty of parking if you rent one.

4. We will be mainly there swimming at the house, but we may want to take a day to explore the island a bit. Is it worth getting a car?

I would get a driver and possibly a guide, a number of our guests have worked with Rudolph and the cost is reasonable.

5. Do they have motorcycle rentals?

Yes, but I wouldn t recommend them. Island driving/driving in an unfamiliar area can be dangerous, particularly on a motorcycle.

7. I m assuming it s great snorkeling right off the dock?

Yes, about 50 yards off the end of the dock is some of the best snorkeling and diving on the island. I typically tether a blow up paddleboard to my ankle and paddle out, one can snorkel for hours, hop up on the board to rest. The paddleboard also makes you more visible. There are areas with spits of stand, starfish etc. like a huge swimming pool.

8. Do we bring our own gear or can we rent some?

While there is gear at the home you can use it comes and goes, I always bring my own.

9. Any suggested airlines to fly into Roatan?

I typically fly Avianca out of Los Angeles through El Salvador, red eye, get in around 9 in the morning and have the cooks come and cook for us the first day, enjoy the reef, and unwind. But there are a number of major airlines that fly directly into Roatan.

10. We are on a well system for water, we provide filtered water for drinking. For hand washing and showering the well water comes from the taps. It s filtered, however, because it s well water it can have a sulfer smell to it. In addition, it stains the faucts, tubs, showers, etc.. This is not grounds for cancellation. While these areas can be stained, they are thoroughly cleaned. The stains cannot be removed without harsh chemicals that ruin these items. If this is an issue for your please reserve a different home.

11. If this is your first trip to the island, you may want to consider the main tourist hubs of West End and West Bay. While we love this property for it s proximity to these areas without all of the tourists and for the fantastic reef right in front. The location combined with the well water would not be considered 5-star or Luxury by western standards. If that is what you are looking for this is not the right home for you. My family, wife, 4 kids and I love this home but it s not right for everyone.

12. Salt water/air is corrosive, things show signs of wear and tear more quickly. We regularly address wear and tear, but we respect the environment and do not throw away functional tools or functioning equipment because of cosmetic damage, if that will bother you please do not book this property. Wear and tear or cosmetic damage caused by corrosion will not be grounds for cancellation or refund.

13. We provide drinking water, the rest of the water is well water and can cause faucets and fixtures to show signs of corrosion, we do not replace functioning fixtures or faucets because of signs of corrosion. They are not grounds for cancellation or refund, please do not reserve this property if that s an issue. We take pride in our properties, and if there are any issues, we kindly ask that you notify us and provide a fair opportunity to address them. If that s not acceptable please do not reserve this property.

14. Pets are subject to owner approval and may or may not be approved. If they are approved a pet fee applies. Please inquire with breed, age, and weight of your pet prior to booking. No Cats Allowed.

15. Is this a high end Luxury Home? No, it s a nice beach home. As noted above, it s not a high end Luxury home. It s a comfortable beach home. My family, my wife and I with our 4 kids stay there sometimes for a week or more at a time and we are very comfortable, we live in California but it s not a luxury home.

Our goal is to keep our prices as competitive as possible, in order to keep them competitive it s important that we avoid the losses that come from cancellations.

Owners of these properties depend on the income and last-minute cancellations result in lost revenue through vacancy and lower prices.

For those that don t like the risk that comes with cancellation policies, we strongly recommend you look into travel insurance.

Here is a direct link where you can purchase insurance for your upcoming trip:

If you didn t purchase the travel insurance offered, you will likely not get any refund.

To ask for an exception to our policy you must first cancel your reservation by sending us an email, or a text message. Exceptions are up to individual owners and are very rare. Your best chance is to ask for a credit to be used for a booking for the same property.

The credit can to be used within the window you cancelled. Ie. If you cancel 3 days before your stay and the owners payout is $4500, you didn t purchase travel insurance you may ask for a credit to be used to reserve the same property no more than 3 days before the drag you want to use the credit for.

Example request.

I had to cancel because my kids are sick. I didn t purchase the recommended travel insurance. My stay is 3 days away. I m requesting a credit for the owner payout amount to be used to reserve the same property 3 days before our stay. I.e, we want to stay August 23rd so I will make a request on August 20th if the unit is still available.


We will share this with the owner and encourage them to allow us to agree.

No exceptions will be made if the process is not followed.
