The other covered passage, with a protected outdoor dining area and the outdoor kitchen, leads to a second en-suite bedroom. Stairs descend to a lower covered porch of a third bedroom. A stone walkway from the villa’s enclosed car park leads to the lower level bedroom, which could be converted into a self-contained apartment, Mr Hasz said. The house has parking for four cars and a garage with an adjoining workshop.
The villa, located in the community of Sandy Bay, is surrounded by old oaks and palms and sits above Lawson Rock, a scenic, gated neighborhood on Roatán’s north shore. The house is about a 10 minute drive from the West End, with plenty of restaurants, dive shops, nightlife, and shopping. Two medical clinics and two schools are nearby, Hasz said.
“There’s both apartments and deep-sea fishing, snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, a sloth reserve and petting zoo, and Bailey’s Key, where the dolphins reside. , right in Sandy Bay,” he said.
The island of Roatán, with approximately 110,000 inhabitants, lies 40 miles north of the Caribbean coast of Honduras. Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport is about a 15-minute drive from the villa, and just beyond are two ferry services that travel to the other islands in the bay and to the mainland town of La Ceiba.
At approximately 32 square miles, Roatán is the largest and most developed of the Bay Islands, which also include Utila and Guanaja. Despite being an international destination for divers, Roatán has long kept a low profile among the Caribbean islands, which has kept real estate prices down, said Matt Esfahani, owner of Roatan Sotheby’s International Realty. .
