Conveniences also include secure high speed Wi-Fi internet and a courtesy local and US calling phone is included. A laundry room with a washer and dryer is also within the unit. ​A gas grill to grill your fresh tuna steaks or BBQ is also located on your private balcony along with a table for 6 for outdoor eating and entertaining. In the main living room/entertainment area you will be delighted to host many of your guests as they will feel very comfortable on the lavish leather couch while enjoying the extra large screen TV. Coupled with the living area is a full size dining table and a gourmet kitchen that is fully stocked with all essentials utensils to make you feel right at home. Enjoy the amazing lush tropical landscape as you take a refreshing dip in the pool. Sun yourself on the private deck overlooking the private dock. Perhaps you would like to cast a line out from the dock or kayak in the bay. Sunrise Harbor is also energy efficient as we try to conserve electric any time we can. Our windows are specially designed to take full advantage of the unique trade winds as they are double hinged. Most of the time you will not need nor want the air conditioner as it is most comfortable without it.

Since the start of booking this beautiful condo Rick and Linda were absolutely wonderful to deal with. Even with all the confusion and uncertainties in the world right now, we were very comfortable that we would be treated fairly. They went above and beyond. Donna the wonderful caretaker met us at the condo when we arrived to go over things and to make sure we had her number if we had any questions or had any issues arise(which we did not) The condo was beautiful and very clean had everything plus some for what we might need. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook with. The gentlemen that look after security are very friendly and helpful. We spent 3 weeks here and couldn’t have asked for anything better, location is perfect and we can not wait to return!

This is NOT your generic island vacation rental. Rick and Linda have thought of everything! The pictures don't do it justice. My husband and I visit Roatan often, and have stayed in many homes in West End. We really appreciated everything about this home-from first contact with the owners.Rick is a super nice guy! Donna is a gem that greeted us upon arrival to the home, and went out of her way to help us get settled-and was a phone call away should we need anything. The home itself is spotlessly beautiful, and well thought out for maximum comfort and enjoyment. The kitchen is more well stocked than any I've seen on the island. We love that it had a coffee grinder, as well! We really enjoyed the outdoor space overlooking the water, and the incredible breezes. The AC works great, but we barely turned it on, since the house stays so cool. I'm a light sleeper, so I really appreciated how quiet it is at night, and the comfortable beds! It's just a 5 minute walk to beach, restaurants, and shopping. If you want to fish, they can pick you up on the dock right outside the door. There is a friendly security guard outside to greet you coming, and going. (I stayed alone the last 3 nights, and have always felt safe in West End-but it's always nice to know someone is looking out for you!) This home was much more house than my husband and I needed, but we really enjoyed having it all to ourselves! It could easily accommodate 6 people comfortably. Definitely recommend, and hope to stay again soon!

From the moment I booked this rental, everything was great! Rick answered every question I had quickly and helpfully. He even arranged for us to be picked up from the airport and taken to the grocery store, making it stress free. The condo is amazing. Beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we could possibly need, and then some. The view is great, and there is a perfect breeze. It is also an absolutely perfect location: a 4 minute walk to anything you’d want (including a great snorkeling spot) and there is a great dive shop next door (Seagrape), but still plenty of privacy and quiet. We told Rick we really wanted to go fishing since we’re a group of fisherman and divers, and he arranged an authentic fishing trip with Daniel. Daniel was easily one of my favorite people we met while there. He was great to chat with and was happy to show us the way he did things. We caught a wahoo within 5 minutes of leaving the dock, plus a bunch of tuna and he let us hand line some snapper from 1000ft. Everything about our trip was great, due in big part to Rick being so helpful. I will absolutely stay here again when we return to Roatan!

Dear Stephanie, What a wonderful review! We thank you so much for your time writing this for the benefit of our forthcoming guests. Many of the items you highlighted will be of particular interest to them not only of our Vacation Retreat but also of the island and it’s beautiful people. We are so glad you had a wonderful experience with Daniel the fisherman. Being an expert on catching wahoo I can tell you landing one within five minutes isn’t just look, it’s the skill of the great fisherman. We hope that next year you’ll come back down and visit our island as you are always welcome not only as a guest but We invite you as part of our island family. Wishing you and your husband a very best that life has to offer both in good health and happiness, Rick and Linda Swanson

My family of four stayed at the property for a week near the end of May and it was fantastic. This was our second time to Roatan,so we were familiar with the area of West End and found the Sunrise Harbor to be exactly where we wanted to be. Walking into town took about five minutes and is also situated next to our favorite dive shop, the Seagrape. Pictures really don't do the condo justice. The inside was clean, tastefully decorated and had everything you would need for a great vacation. The outside was gorgeous with beautiful views of the water, meticulous landscaping and a nice pool. Communication with the owner, Rick, was easy and effortless. Transportion was provided to and from the airport for a very nominal fee. We also always felt safe on the property as there was a night watchman on duty. We would recommend this fantastic home to anyone looking to vacation in Roatan.

If you ever want to stay anywhere and have the most wonderful host, hope that you have Rick take care of you. I don't think any of us met a nicer guy! He made the trip and our stay go over the top. He was patient and so accommodating! Now the condo is super! With three bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen, barbecue, TV, DVDs, pool, and a huge space to hang out, we really didn't do much else! Then again, we do live on an island as well. The location from half-moon bay is about a five minute walk away. It means that any events that are happening on the West End strip will not affect your state. The condo is right on mangrove bite which is a gorgeous view out the back side and the ocean is a quick walk away. There was myself my husband and our two kids and another couple staying in the condo and we just had the most amazing time! Thank you Rick for being the most amazing host. See you next year!

I loved my stay at the Condo. It was so close to the water and being able to walk to shops, restaurants and the grocery store. I enjoyed swimming in the pool 🏊🏽 and being able to just lounge on the balcony after a long day of having fun. I would love to go back soon ⭐️

Four of us (one couple and two others) rented this condo because we needed 3 bedrooms. We stayed 16 nights because we were continuing our dive education. This condo has every modern amenity you will need: washer/dryer, convection oven, gas stove inside and gas grill on patio and Nest A/C system. The best perk is the water filtration system (one of the reasons we rented this unit). The water tastes better there than home (and we have good tasting mountain water at home.) Two rooms have comfy king sized beds and the third, a queen. The master has its own bathroom. There are tv's (cable) in every room and in the living room but we spent most of our time on the patio. My only suggestion on here would be to fill up a pitcher with water for drinking. The power goes off randomly on the island (usually at night when we are sleeping) and we couldn't make morning coffee (there is a coffee shop in town but they could not make coffee either until the power came back on.) Also, the toilet tanks can't fill up without power so we grabbed a pan and filled it with pool water to flush (gravity works. Ha!). West End shops and restaurants are a short walk from the condo. The property has a security guard at night who is super sweet and you can also lock yourself in with the extra door in the unit. There is a safe in the condo too. I never felt unsafe during my time there. Just be smart and lock up when you leave. There is a small grocery store just down the street from the condo or if you don't rent a car, hire a taxi to go to the main grocery store in Coxen Hole. We also rented a scooter for a few days to get around. Most importantly, go scuba diving! If you don't dive, try it! Most shops there offer discover scuba. If diving isn't for you, snorkel. That reef is amazing and the visibility is incredible! You won't be disappointed! Go eat at Roatan Oasis for dinner. Take a taxi up from West End. They usually require reservations. The food is absolutely delicious! I highly recommend paying the price to stay here. You will enjoy it! We will be back for sure!

Cozy modern condo parked on the West End of Roatan less than 30 minutes from the airport after we landed from the US. Great fishing and easy pedestrian style living. Grocery store down the street and plenty of fresh seafood and steaks available on the island to enjoy in the full kitchen with a balcony over-looking the bay. If you're not in the mood to cook; plenty of great restaurants within walking distance. Easy thumbs up! PS: Don't forget about the sailboat rope swing!

"Flip flops and swim fins were the only mode of transportation we needed from our condo in West End, Roatan! This beautiful condo was a very short walk to the many restaurants (the food was outstanding), shops, coffee shops, water taxis, reef snorkeling in Half Moon Bay, dive shops, fishing charters, island tours, submarine tours, glass bottom boats, watercraft rentals and much more in the oceanfront town of West End. Daily dive trips were leaving the dock next door, less than a one minute walk. The sunrise over the water and mountains from the veranda was indescribable! The roomy condo was perfect, all the comforts of home except in paradise. Our family did not want to come home and can't wait to get back to this place as soon as possible!

About the neighbourhood
Location is everything! From convenience to security our property must be considered one of the very best on the island. Just a 5 to 6 minute walk get you to all the attractions, shopping and restaurants in West End not to mention fantastic snorkeling and beach going. We say with out hesitation this is one of the safest places you can be in the world. Having said that using common sense and knowing that our complex is guarded every night your safety and security is paramount in our minds.
Getting around
You do not need to rent a car! It’s a very short walk anywhere and having a car can be actually inconvenient as parking is extremely limited and the driving conditions with the numerous potholes can be most annoying. As you can see in the reviews most of our guests just walk 5 to 6 minutes to all the attractions. If you care to venture out the best resources the water taxis that will take you to West Bay for only three dollars each way. That’s a much better and more economical way to reach that famous beach. You simply walk downtown and go to the water taxi stand and off you go. Taxis also are available at a negotiated price yet tend to be a little pricey.
