About the property

Studio Unit, Bedroom, Eating Area, Small Kitchen, 3 Pc Bath. Waterfront Deck

This inexpensive Bamboo Casita created for the budget travellers or as an addition to the larger houses. We have decided to create a great escape on the water for those looking for a laid back real Caribbean Island experience. We are located in a shoreline neighbourhood of real Islanders and expats from around the world. It is one of the few left in the Caribbean. Hopefully it never changes. This Island is wonderful oasis and there is no need to live in a gated community. The Islanders are wonderful and helpful.

Go snorkelling off our dock with the snorkelling equipment that comes with the rental, to one of the most stunning reef formations in the Caribbean. (second largest reef in the world). You can sit on the dock and enjoy the dolphins and their shows every day. We suggest snorkelling with the dolphins!

The use of two single kayaks come with the property for our guests to use.

This a one acre private property with Casa Cowee VRBO 126086 as the main house and Temple Tree House VRBO 503528 high off the beach which is used for local access to the properties on it. The houses are designed to catch the breezes off the water so the use of AC is really not necessary. Sunsets are absolutely the most stunning from our home. We have made a new entry to the Casita and added a fantastic private deck higher up for the Casita guests to sit and read and dine. It has stunning views.

This is a one acre estate which is lush with many fruit trees including lemons, limes, mangos, bananas, avocados, nuts etc.

The property is gated with a private circular drive around a massive Mango Tree and in the back there is a towering Rain Forest LeCeiba Tree that takes your breath away.

Just one to two minutes walk to 4 great restaurants and two fun bars. 10 Min. drive to West End which is filled with restaurants and bars. Or you can have our staff bring you local food which is delicious. There is a produce truck that comes by daily if you ask and small local stores and restaurants.

Everything for a true island experience.

This Studio Apt. is attached to the larger Casa Cowee VRBO listing #126086 So if you are looking for space for more people. $50.00 for pick up and drop off at the airport along with your grocery stop.

Jose is our 24/7 grounds keeper and takes care of our guests well as he lives in a house further back on the property. Channin Bodden of Channin Bodden Tours and his wife Kimberly are the property managers and have a boat for fishing and snorkelling tours and do all island tours, if you need information they are available and know everything about the island. They can take care of anything.

A nice point also is the proximity of a very good clinic at Anthony's Key about a 4 min walk away and they also have a recompression chamber there. Great doctors and service if needed and not expensive in our terms at least.

Our own West Sandy Bay Beach

The Bamboo Casita is our latest addition to the estate. It is a hexagon cabin attached to the main house. It can be rented with the main house or on it's own. This is a small open concept cabin that is designed for budget travellers that prefer to be on the beach and part of a local island neighbourhood. It is attached to the main house so we ask all our guests to respect the other guests as most everyone who likes our estate also likes a tranquil time.

refer to VRBO 126086 which is Casa Cowee the main house on the estate. Casa Cowee, a rustic recently renovated island-style home on a lush private 1 acre estate, nestled in the warm, friendly community of Sandy Bay, offers dramatic million dollar views of the Caribbean and richly varied living spaces. Casa Cowee's 200-foot swimming dock and tranquil waterfront provide unlimited fishing, snorkelling (reef in front of property), swimming, diving, dolphin-watching, and the opportunity to explore the colourful marine life in the Sandy Bay/West End Marine Reserve. Of course there is public access to all water front on the island. The main road is a good distance away but all beaches are used for foot and some local vehicles to access waterfront houses like the veggie truck, propane delivery and water bottle delivery.

We have added two new kayaks for your enjoyment and provide you with snorkelling equipment for your stay. So you can create a dream vacation package by pre-booking tours, snorkelling and fishing trips.

Located on our beach just a couple of minutes walk is the Blue Bahia Beach Restaurant, Tranquil Seas Bar and restaurant, Fragapini bar/ restaurant at the Myoka Lodge and several local good eats. For diving Octopus Dive School, Tranquil Seas and Anthony's Key.

This unique beachfront plus rain forest property is just a short 10 min. drive to West End Village for dining, shopping and great evening entertainment. On Roatan fun is had by all residents and tourists alike.

The Bamboo Casita has it's own private deck overlooking the water and dolphins outdoor living with lush tropical landscaping. There is a charcoal BBQ on the deck.

This is a stunning sunny unit overlooking the water with it's own small kitchen, 3 pc bath and living space with a queen bed.

We invite you to enjoy our family home. Come and live in an island paradise – relax on your private verandah overlooking the deep blue Caribbean Sea, cooled by trade winds and surrounded by the fragrance of beautiful tropical flowers.
