Thinking About Retiring on Roatan? How Island Rose Can Help You Make the Best Decision

Posted on June 8, 2013 by Christine Larose in Roatan Travel tips

Roatan is a fabulous island in which to live out your retirement dream. In 2011, Islands Magazine named it the number one island in the world to retire to and Kiplinger.com listed it among its top eight great places to retire abroad. If you’re thinking about retiring here, you’re probably well aware of the many advantages Roatan has to offer, but have you considered the steps to making an ideal transition?

Whether you’re just thinking about the possibilities or have made the decision but aren’t sure where you’d like to stay when you get here, as someone who has moved here from a long distance, I feel that renting a vacation home is one of the best ways to try out different areas of the island to find out if it’s right for you.

Spending time in a variety of locations will help you to determine the shops and restaurants you might like to be near, as well as your favorite beach or even a diving spot. Or if you wish to be on a hill away from it all or in a private neighborhood. From my own experiences as well as of the many customers I’ve assisted, I’ve found that it’s also a great way to get to know the locals and even make lifelong friends.

Visit the unique shops and cafes and spend time mingling and chatting with expats and locals and you’ll quickly get a true sense of the warmth and friendliest the island has to offer – and discover what they like best about the area in which they live too.

This is where Island Rose can really help. We offer vacation rentals, but it’s so much more than that! I relish the opportunity to share the island with travelers as well as potential new neighbors and can offer a wealth of advice in order to help you find just what you’re looking for.

Many of my customers look to me for advice on making the most of their time here on the island, and I am always excited to share what I’ve learned as a resident – it’s one of the reasons I truly love what I do. Just tell me what you’re looking for and I can help provide you with the perfect fit for everything you need during your stay as well as point you in the right direction when it’s time to make a permanent move.

Can you imagine having your own go-to person right on the island to ask all of the important questions that may be lingering on your mind? Island Rose – Roatan Vacation Rentals can be all of this and more.

Staying in a vacation rental will also provide you with all of the comforts of a home, giving you a better idea of what it might be like to be here on a long term basis. It’s an ideal alternative to staying in the often impersonal four-walled box known as a hotel room that will leave you feeling cramped, uncomfortable and a bit stressed.

By staying in your own private property, you’ll also enjoy a more authentic experience and a chance to better connect with the Island life and see its true beauties.

Are you ready to take the next steps to see if living on Roatan is for you? Let’s start planning your retirement dream!
