Please enquire or give us a call so we can answer all your questions, offer you our best price and help you plan a fantastic trip to the island. Vivaro Roatan is a collection of purposely designed vacation homes in stunning locations. Privately managed and meticulously maintained our properties are at a standard well the above most homes on the island.

Roatan's fringing reef system rises up from the very deep Cayman Trench. The coral reef extends directly from the shoreline, fringing the perimeter of the island with a near-vertical wall. Vivaro - West End sits on the elevated fossil coral reef dating back more than a million years and feet from the stunning underground ecosystem that makes Roatan a fantastic destination.

HIGHLIGHTS:

***On a quiet residential point, Vivaro - West End is a 5-minute flat walk to Half Moon Bay and the heart of West End. Avoid the growing noise pollution of more central properties (Coral Vista, properties on Half Moon Bay, etc.) and the steep walk uphill (Sunset Villas)

***The property has backup power (no power = no water, flushing toilets, showers, AC, fans, etc) and UV filtered water.

***2 Oceanview Master Suites and a large creative lofted room - Sleeps 10 - 12

***LOCATION: Vivaro - West End sits on Roatan's stunning iron shore. The iron shore is the elevated fossilized coral reef dating back more than a million years to the Pleistocene epoch. Outside of its beauty, the iron shore offers a better breeze and less bugs than properties on the sand or in the jungle. From the deck you are feet from the Caribbean Sea. When you step out your front door, fantastic snorkeling, a beautiful beach, and island life are only minutes away.

***Private Infinity Pool and a spacious deck with ample seating

***Spacious and well provisioned Chef's Kitchen

Vivaro - West End - South House is a brand new three-bedroom OCEAN FRONT luxury home in the most peaceful and private area of West End. The ocean is literally feet away. The South House sleeps a maximum of 12 people. Built right on the iron shore, this West facing property affords amazing sunset views and sea breezes year-round. From the kitchen you will see every wave, the dive boats in front, fish jumping, and sometimes pods of dolphins. You truly feel as if you are floating on the ocean. While you might never want to leave the incredible deck, the bars, restaurants, activities and dive shops of West End are just a short walk away.

A highlight of the house is the large infinity edge pool jutting out over the iron shore. The pool is an amazing spot to cool off with magnificent sunsets as a backdrop. The size and position of this pool make it very unique in West End - private pools are rare - many are very small plunge pools. From your morning coffee on the deck to floating in the creative infinity pool at sunset, there will be days you will not want to leave.

The central vaulted great room is spacious with extremely large accordion doors that open onto a sprawling deck with stunning views. A large L-shaped couch and dining table that seats at least twelve adds to the functionality of this room. LED lights highlight the trellised ceiling while four ceiling fans help keep you cool. There is also large Smart TV (Netflix, Amazon) and a BOSE Sound touch speaker to enjoy your favorite music.

The sprawling outdoor deck space surrounds a large infinity pool with a tanning ledge and offers spectacular views of Roatan's fabulous reefs and spectacular sunsets. There is ample furniture, from lounge chairs and sofas to a large, shaded table for all your group to relax, sun, dine, play games, or read.

The chef's kitchen is large with white stone counter tops and dark Honduran wood cabinets. The LG gas cooktop is on a substantial island with seating for four. All appliances are top of the line LG. The double door refrigerator has filtered water and an ice maker. The kitchen has been meticulously outfitted with high quality knives, cookware, dishes, silverware, etc.

Vivaro - West End - South House is a three-bedroom house. There are 2 master suites - one upstairs and one downstairs. Each master suites faces the ocean, and each has a large deck. The master bedrooms feature Honduran wood floors, blackout curtains and luxury linens and towels. The large bathrooms with marble counter tops include rainfall shower heads and private toilet rooms.

The third bedroom is a very large, lofted room - perfect for children or a group room. This room has 24 feet high ceilings. It features a king bed and a custom triple bunk bed handmade of Honduran hardwood which feature one double on the bottom topped with 2 twin beds. The large loft and media area includes a twin trundle bed and lots of pillows to relax, nap, or watch movies. This room has a bathroom with a rainfall shower and a separate toilet. Kids or adults will love the comfort and space of this room.

Our goal is for Vivaro - West End to be as energy efficient as possible. Every option from LED lights to energy star rated appliances help to conserve daily usage. The power on Roatan is diesel generated and there are frequent, but brief outages. At Vivaro, because of a backup generator you will barely know when the power goes out. You will have lights, AC, water pressure, and be able to cook. Internet and TV also go down during power outages.

You will be charged for your group's electricity usage. With intelligent and careful use of AC, lights, and fans this charge should be minimal. This means AC only at night or when in the room, AC set at around 22 degrees, lights and fans off when not needed, etc. Energy conservation should always be a goal if you want to minimize your charges. The meter will be read upon check in and again at check out. Charges will be deducted from your security deposit.

Charges have ranged from $50 to $200 depending on the renter's personal choices.

There is a $300 cleaning charge for all groups. This includes a light cleaning at least once during your stay and a deep cleaning after your checkout.

Sheets and towels will not be changed every day. Water is scarce and conservation required. We expect guests to keep the house and kitchen reasonably clean during their stay. If you desire more frequent cleaning, please let us know so we can book a trusted cleaner.

We also include transportation from the airport to the house for stays of five nights or more for DIRECT bookings. (One car or van per group. We can help arrange additional cars if needed. Extra charge for driver to wait while you shop at Eldon's). We can help you arrange the return trip and quote you a price.

We are open to events. There will be additional event fees. Please inquire.

*You will need to purchase and bring some household items - shampoo, body soap etc. Some cleaning supplies are provided but we hope you enjoy your vacation and leave the laundry for when you return home with wonderful memories. There might be some pool floats - or the last guests popped them all.
*We love feeling a bit local on fabulous Roatan - meeting new travelers, expats, and locals at Sundowner's is a not to miss activity. Experiencing the small grocery stores, buying some fruit on the street, meeting a local cat, realizing how loud the tiny mosquito eating geckos can.
