*Named L’Alizé for the Refreshing Breezes*

Nestled above a private cove beach (locally called a “keyhole”) on the South shore of the tropical island of Roatan, this large luxury home, enjoys both a constant sea breeze and a dramatic view of the Caribbean. L’Alizé derives its name from the French word for African trade winds, (alizés) which flow East to West during the warmest months of the year. These dramatic winds account for a such a surprising cooling effect on the hottest days, that it quickly becomes clear why Roatan’s earliest towns settled on the South side of the island where these winds rarely fail to cool and refresh while they keep the bugs in check. In January one guest wrote, "We toured the whole island and there isn't a more beautiful property on Roatan. I didn't use any Deet and didn't get a bite."

*L’Alizé Awarded the distinction of a luxury destination*

In 2014 L'Alize was awarded the distinction of a luxury destination for Homeaway’s Luxury Rentals site, by Andrew Harper, a leading luxury travel company TM, . One of 5 luxury rental properties on Roatan which have qualified for this prestigious rating (see luxury.homeaway ).

*L’Alizé Staff*

L’Alize wants to emphasize its incredibly private location, so we have staff to help you when needed, but the home will be privately yours.

We clean the home 3 days during your stay.

Edier lives close by and can help with maintenance and drive you around or run errands for you.

If you want to order meals we can help.

If you have special requests let us know.

*The Wild Side*

L’Alizé, where pristine jungle and iron shore meet the Caribbean, may not be for everyone. The beauty of the South Shore is also rugged and wild. Agouti ( in the Capybara family) and iguana scamper up the drive and onto the jungle covered hillside throughout the day. The stunning keyhole beaches just minutes walk from L’Alize, are just as they were 100 years ago. Each keyhole is bordered with ancient iron shore, home to sunning iguanas and Hama lizards and other wild creatures. We have even seen an occasional boa enjoying the sunny salt air. These coves can get mild to strong wave action in the afternoon breezes. This is a great thing for staying cool on the beach and at L’Alizé, and this is the #1 deterrent for bugs , but it does mean that water in the private keyhole can get rough, particularly as the breezes pick up in the afternoon. Most people can snorkel and enjoy the coral and underwater beauty without being bothered by the waves, but others may find the waves troublesome. The first keyhole gets more wave action than the second keyhole, which is narrower and so more protected. The iron-shore (ancient coral pushed out of the sea by volcanic activity) is interesting and how nature says “don’t touch”. This black coral contains fossils of ancient shells and a number of small animals and sea creatures make it their home. It is challenging to climb and the roughest surface most of us have ever touched, so please bring water shoes or tennis shoes, if you want to explore this unusual geologic formation. On these keyhole sandy beaches, there are no shops, restaurants or ice-cream stands, tourist kiosks, rentals, or boat taxis, just wildlife and you, if you so choose.

If your group has a mix of privacy seeking adventurers and tame-white sands-beach-lovers, you might make a concession to split time between the beaches on the wild south side and the tame north side. Ask Edier to drop you off for the afternoon in West Bay Beach. Get your fill of ice cream and the crowds, then come back to L’Alizé. We are only a mile apart yet our beaches are beautifully different. If you prefer tame, flat, white sandy beaches with tourist activity, a vacation rental or hotel on West Bay Beach may be more to your liking. We recognize that the privacy, peacefulness, and untamed nature of the Wild Side, is not for everyone.

*House Layout *

L’Alizé, is spaciously laid out to maximize the 3500 sq/ft., There are breathtaking views from each floor, patio, balcony and almost every bedroom. The third level has two spacious bedrooms and a convenient laundry room. The second level has a great room with kitchen, 1/2 bath, and a large porch for dining and lounging . The 1st level has 2 bedrooms, a living room and kitchen with a porch which opens to the pool patio and an open vista of the keyhole. All bedrooms are fitted with A.C. as is the common area on the second level and the guest house. Wireless Internet is available throughout the home.

The house is rented as a 4 bedroom home but, we offer discounts to smaller groups. The guest cottage is a perfect addition (see rates) if you need a 5th bedroom. This room is ideal for those who like a little more privacy. Its compact kitchen allows you the freedom to store snacks and more.

With 4 Kitchens, 6 bathrooms and many patios, guests can spread out and feel at home.

*L’Alizé suits a variety of tastes*

Nestled in a pristine wildlife retreat that exhibits a wide spectrum of eco systems, L’Alize abuts mangroves and dramatic iron shore with ancient coral. Pick a less breezy day, to take the Kayaks out for a ride to the second keyhole toward Pirates Cove. These kayaks will glide to sights few eyes have seen.

Whether celebrating family events with extended family or joining old friends or celebrating a romantic retreat, L’Alizé offers adventure or relaxation, luxury and convenience, privacy and plenty of nearby activities to suit all tastes.
