Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom Beachfront Villa (Sleeps 10)

Looking for high-end accommodations in West End? Look no further—our beachfront villa on Half Moon Bay offers the authentic Roatán experience, plus all the amenities you’d expect from an upscale resort.

We’ve designed each room to be a retreat in itself. The villa boasts four spacious bedrooms, three of which have in-suite bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms have views of the Caribbean, and all four have their own flat-screen TVs. The master bedroom is especially luxurious, with vaulted hardwood ceilings and floors and a private balcony that looks out over both Half Moon Bay and the Caribbean. Each room is decorated in an eco-spa style, giving the villa a sense of tranquility and comfort.

Outside, you’ll find a private infinity-edge plunge pool, which overlooks the ocean. Coupled with the partially covered patio and resort-caliber furnishings, it’s the perfect place to kick back and relax.

In addition to all this, the villa features dual-zone AC, a brand new water filtration system, a high-end kitchen with granite and stainless steel accents, plush linens, an infrared BBQ, and high speed Wi-Fi. We also provide a full concierge service through our local property manager, and our private chef is available upon request.

For travelers who want an authentic Roatán experience, the villa couldn’t be better situated. West End is known as more of a neighborhood than a resort town, and you’ll find fewer tourists here than you would in West Bay. Even so, there are plenty of activities within a half hour of the villa, including dolphin encounters, ziplining, horseback riding, scuba diving, and golfing, to name a few. You can even visit an iguana farm!

You don’t have to go far to snorkel—hop in the water right off the villa, and you’ll be swimming in the world’s second-largest barrier reef. Approximately 96% of all Caribbean marine life is found here, and you’re likely to encounter sea turtles, lionfish, lobsters, and more.

It’s rare to find such luxury in West End. Get in touch with us to book your dates today!

About Dennis Hoffman

Click on the satellite button and plus sign (zoom in).

In the center of the photo you can see the orange, rectangular roofs of the five Coral Vista Villas. Ours is the one on the right, just steps from Half Moon Bay beach.

The cluster of buildings to the bottom and along the water is West End Village. Here you will find everything from restaurants to convenience stores to dive shops to souvenirs and night life.

Above the Villas is Half Moon Bay. As you can see, the water is so clear you can almost spot the fish on the reef! From our home you can walk out onto the beach and slip into the Bay for a swim, a snorkel, a shore dive or even take the two sea kayaks out for a leisurely paddle up or down the coast line.

Dennis Hoffman purchased this villa in 2012

Why Dennis Hoffman chose Half Moon Bay

We purchased Half Moon Bay House after staying in one of the sister villas with our four children in March of 2011. During that trip, we explored the island, did a bunch of diving, hit the zip lines and generally decompressed. It became apparent over the week that Roatán was an island on the cusp - in the process of being 'discovered' but far from over developed and commercialized - and West End was a truly unique and frankly, cool place from which to experience all that Roatán has to offer.

We had such a great time, we wanted to own a part of it and, hopefully, share that with you and guests from around the world.

What makes this villa unique

Coral Vista 1 is truly unique. It is the only high-end home on the beach and the water in West End.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I had seen a show on HGTV's International House Hunters that featured Coral Vistas. After our jaws hit the floor, we taped it to show to our usual Mexico travel buddies. The seven of us have been renting houses in Playa del Carmen for 18 years, but it has lost its' luster. Too big, too expensive, and now full of American fast food places. We pined for the old Playa of simpler days with local charm and authenticity. After getting together and watching the tape everyone wanted to go there. So, we looked it up on the internet, and the descriptions and pictures we found, only convinced us more that we needed to make it this winter's escape from Minnesota. The seven of us spent a fabulous week at the Half Moon Bay House, old Playa rediscovered, only better!



We were rewarded by a better than expected experience. Roatan is a beautiful, laid back island with beautiful beaches and extremely friendly people. The house surpassed our highest expectations. It was very clean and wonderfully decorated with fabulous views in all directions. Someone from the agency that manages these properties met us when we arrived and filled us in on all the great things there are to do on the island. Anytime we had a problem or a question, help was just a phone call to the office and a few minutes away. Most everything we wanted to do was literally just steps from the house. Great affordable restaurants, bars and shops, and a spectacular beach. We didn't do as many things as we initially thought we would, because sitting on the front patio by the pool with balmy breezes, great views, a cool drink, conversation or a good book was so relaxing that it was difficult to budge us.



One of the greatest experiences we had was to hire a cook ( Susan ), and have her cook us an island dinner at the house. Indescribable! We can all pack in a good size meal, but we still had enough leftovers for another meal. Another must, is to hire a boat with crew, which is very easy to do, and go by sea around about a third of the island to a wonderful and quirky restaurant called the "Hole in the Wall". Would you enjoy all the Lobster tail and barbeque you can eat for $25.00? We sure did!



Oh, and the best for last. There is not one single American fast food joint in West End!



We are having a Roatan group reunion this weekend, and there is no doubt that we all want to go back next winter, only for two weeks this time.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The house worked great for our family, 8 adults. The location is amazing, with beach at the bottom of the stairs. We did a large groceries buy at Eldon's on the way from the airport, anything else we needed was in walking distance from the house. No need to rent a car. The kitchen is well outfitted, except plastic wrap would have come in handy. Wish I could go back -30celcius, here today.

Always a great time!

  • 5 of 5

Hey Dennis,

Third stay in your house and once again it was amazing! You always seem to be doing upgrades in the right places. The weather was perfect, the diving awesome and the fishing was fun but no wahoo this time. All the more reason to come back next year! Thanks again!

Loved the house and loved West End

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home and great location. Great outdoor space. Pedro and staff at Roatan Life were very helpful. 2 suggestions: bed is master bedroom desperately needs to be replaced - very uncomfortable. IAlso it would be nice to have the option of a housekeeper once a week to clean, change sheets and do laundry if needed.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at our house in West End. We have asked our property manager to check out the mattress and replace it if needed. This is the first we have heard about the bed being uncomfortable. As for the housekeeper, that is an option. We're sorry if that was not made clear or offered at check-in. We clean the houses top to bottom every week (for free) and guests have the option of arranging full or mini cleanings throughout their stay. Thanks again for staying with us!

Place was great! Outstanding location in the heart of West End overlooking Half Moon Bay.

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed and cared for home with all the modern amenities. Dennis (the Owner) was easy to work with and the folks at Roatan Vacation Rentals took care of us. Roatan is extremely easy to navigate, the locals speak fluent English and the restaurants serve both American and Honduran food. Be sure to check out Marco at Dix's Halfway Inn. For a great meal, have dinner at Roatan Oasis-up on the hill just a few steps from town. We did everything from zipline, to horseback riding to fishing to Mayan jungle to renting scooters and touring the island. What a great place!!! Did not see a cloud in the sky the entire week we were there. In the middle of Half Moon Bay is an old sailboat they have converted to a "water jungle jim". Make sure you swim out there and jump off the high platform.

If there is one negative-and a you really have to look for one, its the cruise ships. From Monday through Thursday the ships come in and drop off the passengers. From 9:00 am to 4:00 pm the West End gets a little crowded but once they leave its back to normal.

We will definitely return and when we do we will be staying with Dennis at Coral Vista #1.

Words cannot accurately describe......

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying at this property, 4 1/2 years apart. Both times with different adult friends. Everyone loved it. Words and pictures cannot adequately describe this home due to its location and convenience to surrounding amenities. The concierge services offered through Roatan Life truly give staying here the feel of a 5 Star resort with the privacy of a home. We will return again and again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to share you're thoughts with future guests. We're so happy you enjoyed your stay. Return visits - even 4 1/2 years apart - are the greatest compliment. Come back soon.
