What makes Casanueva stand out:

Perfect Location: Quiet and private property: a landmark location in West Bay Lighthouse Estate.

The house is only a few minutes walk from West Bay beach and its many amenities. Enjoy the beach anytime you like but return to the privacy and comfort of this great home when the beach becomes too crowded and noisy.

West Bay is the prime location of our paradise island: it is laid back yet lively, well developed but not over-commercialized. West Bay beach offers the best restaurants, dive shops, bars, grocery stores, etc.

West Bay Beach is the most beautiful and one of the largest beaches on the island. The reefs that surround Roatan are a snorkeler’s and divers’ paradise, with hundreds of dive sites, many of them world class.

The villa is only 30 minutes drive from Roatan international airport.

Renting a car is optional but advisable as to explore our beautiful island.

Water and car taxis are abundant and inexpensive.

Spectacular ocean and sunrise views from the pool deck, living dining room, kitchen and all of the balconies and patios. View of the south shore, the coastline of Honduras and Cayos Cochinos islands.

All this luxury is surprisingly affordable for a beautiful house to relax and enjoy.

Easy to get to Roatan: Roatan is easier to get to than many Caribbean destinations. The Roatan international airport ( RTB) has non-stop flights, from Newark (New York), Houston, Miami, Atlanta, served by Delta, American Airlines and Avianca. There are also weekly charters from Milan, Montreal & Toronto (depending on season) and frequent daily flights from San Pedro Sula on mainland Honduras, with daily connections there from the U.S. on the above airlines.

***RATES ARE FOR 6 PEOPLE IN CASANUEVA VILLA ONLY. Please contact us for larger groups. Maximum 11 people for Villa Casanueva + OPTION OF 6 MORE PEOPLE IN VILLA BELVEDERE (TOTAL OF 17).

Wonderful Choice!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with another family to Roatan for the 1st time and found these 2 houses to be the best place on the island. As there were 6 children (ages 12-17) and 4 adults, we had plenty of space to spread out. It was delightful to return to these homes and have our own personal oasis once we left the beach or sightseeing.

The houses are on top of a hill, which we were able to see both coasts of the island. It is a very easy walk down to the beach but a bit of exercise to get back up. As our kids were old enough, it wasn’t a problem at all for us.

Claudio was a pleasure to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. The maid/chef and pool boy were exceptional and kept the whole place immaculate. We had Linda cook for us 2 nights and the food was delicious and very reasonably priced for her to cook for 10 of us. We would strongly suggest having her cook.

The entire vacation was extremely easy with the help from Claudio which included getting to the grocery store, finding a driver to sightsee (zip lining was AWESOME!!), places to eat and accommodated us for a later plane departure.

This was our third time in Roatan, we love West Bay, its wonderful beach and amenities.  In previous visits we rented homes on the beach but for our large group this time we needed a bigger property  and more privacy. The beach is crowded on cruise ship days. We saw Belvedere villas on our last visit and thought  it would be perfect for our family group. The property prime  location offers spectacular views and it is just a short walk to the beach, easy on the way down, a bit steep on the way back. However, we found this to be an invigorating exercise.

The  two upscale villas are  surrounded by lush and well kept tropical gardens, very spacious, nicely and comfortably furnished with all amenities and luxury appointments. The full  kitchens in both homes are  modern and complete with all utensils and china ware. Elegant and comfortable bedrooms. Large bathrooms with granite countertops. There are several furnished terraces for outdoor living and dining. Great outdoor panoramic  decks and pool  with a lot of loungers, two furnished gazebos, outdoor kitchen with BBQ, small refrigerator, sink and a large dining table. There is even an outdoor restroom by the pool. Though we were a large group we never felt crowded both indoor and outdoor. A constant  cooling breeze made it possible to minimize using air condition, which is an additional charge here as in the majority  of rental homes on Roatan. Electricity is very expensive on the island.

The manager was welcoming us on arrival, he was prompt, ready to assist and always friendly in answering our calls and requests. The on site caretaker and the cleaning girl  were very helpful always smiling, and hard working. We were very pleased with this choice and the service offered. Really a great value.

We all had a wonderful time and could have not asked for more.

Terrible vacation - no privacy

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here for one week November 15-22. We were a party of 5 extended family members ages 43-88. We will not be returning. My step daughter signed the contract and at the last minute, her boyfriend decided to come as well. Consequently, she rented another property for just the 2 of them. I can understand that the property manager wanted to meet us as we were not present at check in but we are clearly not a frat group. The property manager showed up unannounced 5 times in 7 days. He also consistantly emailed my step daughter stating that we were "breaking the rules of the contract" because we asked for toilet paper and paper towels. He did bring us some but I replaced them prior to leaving for fear of being charged back a ludicrous amount. We were charged back for alleged stained mattress cover stains that were obviously there prior to our arrival. I asked to see the sheets bc they would have been stained as well and he couldn't show them to me as they were "already being treated for stain removal and were in the wash as other guests were arriving." We were also charged back for stains on white towels and a Dollar Store serving spoon and placemats. This entire kitchen is furnished by the Dollar Store.

There was also an overage for hydro / water. The AC was not even turned on (additional charge) and the lights and fans were off when we were not in the house. The power also went out in the island for a day and we were still over? We have stayed at 2 other properties on the island and have never been charged or monitored for hydro or water consumption, toile paper or paper towels. The onsite employee Angel was most helpful, however due to the bothersome property management, we will not return. Take your cheque book - you will need it at this property. Never again.

Owner's Response: It is sincerely regretted and surprising to read that your experience was not satisfactory, though you did not rent from us. It appears that comments in this review are inaccurate and untrue. The lady renter, who handled this reservation, signed the rental agreement, made payments and checked in, only at the end of check-in procedures informed us that she was not staying but her father's family would be staying. Sublease is against rental conditions: it violates the rental agreement. After spending the first week with you in another nearby property, the renter and her boy friend decided to rent elsewhere as you write, but informed us after checking in. However, as we did not meet you, we asked the renter to convey rental terms and information to her father, indicating that any questions or requests should be directed to us personally, to enable us offer prompt attention and solutions. A courtesy phone was available to you at the property to be in touch with us anytime. We never received a request, a call or a comment from you during your entire stay. If there was a problem or a concern, we could have solved it. The homes are well stocked with paper products before guests arrive but if you needed more, why not asking us? During your stay, we did write to the renter to find out if everything was ok with her father’s family; she replied us via VRBO saying : “ I know for a fact that my father and his wife's family are amazed by the house and really enjoying themselves.” The renter who checked in was informed that there was a problem with the alarm system that needed to be ratified: I came to the property 3 times for this purposes and asked your permission. We are totally unaware of your personal arrangements with our renter; your comments cannot be related to actual facts or arrangements. Our renter was supposed to be present on your check out but she did not. The check out statement was emailed to her, waving all charges, only applying the $ 50.00 extra laundry +cleaning, in line with rental conditions she signed. In fact she did not comment or object. Your comments above and this reply are being copied to our renter for proper information of all parties concerned. We constantly endeavor to ensure that the property meets with high standards as to serve our guests. The owner has gone a long way to provide high quality furnishings for those discerning guests, who appreciate and differentiate the amenities this property offers.

A delightful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful vacation in Roatan, at Belvedere and Casanueva. The occasion was a special family reunion: three generations and family members coming from different places.

We found this property to be the ideal solution for us.

The property managers were always prompt and friendly in offering guidance and suggestions throughout our stay. They made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Personnel at the villas was very friendly and willing to help.

The two villas are absolutely stunning, clean and comfortable providing privacy and relaxation ; the views fantastic, the location just perfect: only a few minutes walk to the best beach . The outdoor area with its lush, tropical garden surrounding the inviting panoramic pool, has an incredible sea view over the coastline ; there are plenty of comfortable loungers, two gazebos with armchairs, tables and chairs. Within walking distance, there are good restaurants and shops.

It was just so lovely to sleep with windows open and enjoy the heavenly Caribbean breeze blowing.

The family enjoyed BBQing outside on the outdoor kitchen by the pool as the sun set and also having breakfast in one of the several decks or gazebos.

We had a fantastic time.

Casanueva: A Perfect Place in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Casanueva provides an ideal place to visit Roatan. The house is level with the pool where there are beautiful views. On the private porch area of the house is a large table and chairs to enjoy a meal or watch the stars! The windows are large and screened so trade winds make even the warmest days comfortable. Although there is AC available, we never felt the need to use it. Casanueva has three large bedrooms and two bathrooms with large tiled shower areas. The fixtures and all of the detail work is first quality. There is an abundance of bath towels and beach towels available. The house is comfortable and stylish with tropical furnishings and colorful paintings on brightly painted walls. The beds in the two masters are king-size and comfortable, while the third bedroom has a queen and large twin which make it versatile if you have extra family come visit. And if you need even more room for guests, there are two more bedroom/studios available below the house you can rent. One has a small refrigerator and microwave with a few appliances while the other does not. Both have their own bathrooms and a small porch complete with grill. The living area sports a comfy sofa facing a large wide screen TV. There is satellite service for TV and a DVD player. The kitchen is well equipped with a large gas stove and plenty of glassware, plates, and cooking utensils. There are granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances including a microwave. Add in the outdoor kitchen which you share with guests at Belvedere and you can make any dinner you desire. I especially liked using the outdoor kitchen when I fixed fish or other seafood. Casanueva had maid service once a week. I think she would do laundry for a small fee although there is a laundry room with new appliances under the house. Everything is well maintained and the vivaproperty managers are available to answer questions, solve problems and provide top rate service to you. There is a safe and a security company provides an alarm system and motion detectors so no concern for your valuables while away. During previous trips to Roatan, we experienced power outages. But at Casanueva, the built in generators provide backup power. Casanueva is near West Bay Beach. There you will find many restaurants, a deli, coffee shop, gift shops, movie rentals, ATM and more! The beach is beautiful and the reef is easily accessed for snorkeling. Dive trips are easy to arrange. Staying at Casanueva has been a wonderful experience.
