Why choose Vacation Home Rentals on Roatan

Posted on December 12, 2012 by Christine Larose in Roatan Booking Tips

To Rent or NOT to Rent for your next vacation to Roatan?

Some of you might not be familiar or comfortable with the idea of renting a house, condo or villa for a vacation in the Caribbean. If that sounds like you; you need to give this a try, you will not regret it!

Before I moved to Roatan and started my own Vacation Home Rental company, I was thinking just like most of you. The All-Inclusive option was the easiest, safest, and the trouble-free solution. Even more when you are going to a new destination and in a third world country like Honduras.  But it is only when I first came here on Roatan for a week’s vacation and chose to stay at an all-inclusive, that I realized that if I wanted to get the most out of my vacation on this beautiful Island, I had to experience it differently. So I thought I would give you that heads up before you book your next Vacation on Roatan.

Everywhere you look, there are charming local bars & restaurants with very affordable and delicious food, great staff (mostly bilingual) and excellent local drinks for cocktail hour. All very secured and accessible from the beach! You don’t want to miss that warm and laid back Caribbean atmosphere and music, plus the opportunity to meet other travelers and divers just like you. Just on West Bay beach alone, you have more than 15 restaurants to choose from, on a beach that you can walk almost in 12 minutes! West End has equally the same to offer you and more!

But if you wish to stay in for one meal, or all week, and enjoy your own cocktail hour and have great meals on your deck, while watching the most beautiful sunrises or sunsets and enjoy your privacy, you can have it all with your vacation rental! You can either make a stop at the grocery store in Coxen Hole, in West End or at the West Bay mall and cook for yourself, pick up a delicious homemade meal at Hungry Monkey’s restaurant or Java Vine’s or have it delivered, or choose to have a meal cooked in your own kitchen offered by a local food service (concierge). None of these options are expensive, yet they are very simple, accessible and so enjoyable.

When you opt for a vacation home rental with me, the only thing you will have to worry about is bringing your bathing suit and good sunscreen. You will enjoy the privacy and quietness of your own house or condo, yet you will be so close to everything that Roatan has to offer. Perfect combination! All of our rentals come fully furnished, with a full equipped kitchen, linens, towels and more. You will have everything that you need to make your Roatan vacation memorable. Just take advantage of it!
