About the property

Private 5 Bdrms - 4 Bath Estate Villa With Ocean & Lush Jungle Views, Security

Surrounded by beauty, located in the prestigious gated eco-resort community of Palmetto Bay, Villa Dos Palapas is perfectly nestled into a quiet hillside overlooking the most magnificent views from Pristine Bay's golf course, to the turquoise sea below, creating the perfect ambiance of living in your very own private paradise, you will feel the Caribbean vibe as soon as you drop your luggage.

The location allows guests to enjoy the convenience of close proximity to attractions, while still maintaining a sense of seclusion and privacy. All the amenities you need are right at your finger tips, from concierge service; shuttle service, personal chef service, excursions and charters, and the resort's private beach with bar and grill are just a short stroll down the lane.

Stay connected at Dos Palapas with US Direct TV and wifi in the main living areas. The gourmet kitchen is spacious and a great place for everyone to gather for formal or informal dining, and the kitchen amenities are perfect for the foodie traveler, including stainless steel appliances and whole house water purification system.

Dos Palapas was designed with trade winds in mind, so you will always have a beautiful breeze. However, if you like to cool down before bed, there are air conditioners throughout the villa.

The expansive deck with outdoor kitchen gets plenty of use! It's perfect for entertaining by the over-sized sparkling infinity pool, at sunset. The king master suites are spacious with ocean-views and en-suites for privacy, and the brand new main floor suite is spacious and perfect for those that prefer to be close to the home's amenities. The unique 'crow's nest' on the third floor, offers the most dramatic view of the reefs and surrounding manicured lush property.

Perfectly situated in a nature preserve, you'll definitely enjoy a leisurely walk around the sprawling resort property lanes - bird watch, butterfly watch, or look for the illusive owls, iguana, guatusa (or island rabbits, as they are called by locals). One of the best features of Palmetto's resort community, is your own private beach with shaded palapas, beach loungers, large breezy dock, as well as the convenience of having a bar & grill on-site, you can also rent kayaks or paddle-boards.

Why S. Woods chose Palmetto Bay

The natural beauty of Villa Dos Palapas and Palmetto Bay is a rare find today. The peacefulness you feel and the location on the island is second to none. It's private, yet close to everything you need. It truly is paradise and we are happy to share our piece of paradise with guests.

What makes this villa unique

There is nothing better than watching the nightly sunsets, they are spectacular! When you slide into a shaded chaise lounger under one of the palapas with a book, the day just slips away... The pool is so inviting you can't help but take a dip! Most pools vacation homes offer are smaller spa pools, but our 40 foot infinity pool allows you the freedom to entertain without crowding each other, or swim laps and get in a great work out.

We are fortunate to have flocks of resident parrots in Palmetto's community and it is always a kick to hear them socially gather in tree tops at dusk to chat away with each other. There are so many reasons we chose this home, the list is endless!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed for 2 weeks at Dos Palapas, we travel every year but this was our first visit to Roatan. It was more beautiful than the pictures we saw. When arriving their driver met us at the airport and took us to the grocery store on the way to the house. The store was surprisingly stocked with a lot of stuff we use back home, nice!

The drive to the house was down a long and winding road through the jungle, when we arrived the managers met us and welcomed us with a tour of the house and the welcome basket was a nice surprise!

We didn't bother to even unpack, we all picked our bedrooms, changed, and headed straight to the pool, it was so pretty the water was almost sweet (not your typical over chlorinated pool). The views were amazing, we had parrots above us every morning and every evening, it was magical! We discovered the 3rd floor provided the most stunning sunsets we have ever seen, totally picture worthy!

The bar & grill was really nice, the food was so good, the ambiance was relaxing, the sea was stunning and the beach was huge, so we had our pick of where we wanted to lay out every day. Just remember bug spray! The no-seeums on the island are easily controlled if you use bug spray. There is a shipwreck off the reefs out front, it was really cool snorkeling. The managers James and Stephanie were very helpful and provided us with a lot of great info of where to go, what to see and they own a tour company so it was super easy to get around.

It's so spacious we all felt like we had our own space when we wanted it, the kitchen is huge and you'll get a lot of use out of the outdoor kitchen grilling. There aren't many natural places left in teh Caribbean like this resort community, and the people that live within the community were very friendly and helpful too.

I recommend this home, and the 'monkey la-las' at the bar :)

Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

There were 7 in our party, including two couples. We each had our own rooms and all slept comfortably in this absolutely gorgeous villa. Stephanie could not have been more accommodating, handling any and all questions quickly and happily. The property is incredible. You could not be more at peace sitting out by the pool or on any of the many balconies. The quick golf cart jaunt down to the pool, restaurant, and beach provided an opportunity to see basilisks, birds, and the sneaky "agouti"...known as "rabbits" on the island. We bbq'd one evening and paid to have a meal made for us on another (insanely delicious). We were picked up from the dock for our morning diving and those who stayed back at the villa enjoyed leisurely days by the pool and even had the local massage therapist come in one day.

All in all, we had an unforgettable time in Roatan and Villa Dos Palapas was a HUGE part of the experience. We could not recommend this property more highly. Thanks for a lovely stay!!!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 wonderful days and nights at Dos Palapas. One of our best vacations we have ever had. The home is very nice and spacious. It has several bedrooms all with their own bathrooms. The open top shower over looking the ocean was amazing. We watched the sun come up in the mornings from the balcony. We watched the cruise ships from our bedroom window at night! It was magical! The grounds and home make you feel like you are in your own paradise. We swam in the gorgeous pool everyday and evening. We enjoyed the beaches and the local restaurant.

The home has everything you need! We did a lot of sight seeing, but had everything we needed there at the house. From a great place to cook and hang out, to access to a beach, and a great restaurant with in golf cart distance, when you didn't want to cook. Can't wait to do it again!

Real Paradise, All We Expected & More!

  • 5 of 5

Every year our family picks a new destination for our family vacation. We chose Dos Palapas and it was perfect space wise. We all had our own places to hang out separately, or together. The kitchen was our central location because it is so big you seem to gravitate between hanging out in the kitchen, and the pool. The pool was the best feature, it was way bigger than what we usually get, and there was more than enough seating. The outdoor kitchen surely had it's share of use! it was nice to cook outdoors and watch the sunset. Would definitely recommend this home for your vacation. We saw owls, parrots (morning and night), butterflies and hummingbirds everywhere. Just lovely.

Palmetto Bay is a very unique eco-nature preservation resort in that it is the only resort on Roatan that proudly preserves all wildlife to enjoy and share with vacationers, from rare parrots and owls, to the blue crab, as well as many varieties of butterflies, guatusa and brilliant green iguana.

Perfectly located mid-island, on Roatan's north shore, offering stunning views of the turquoise sea. Villa Dos Palapas is the ideal vacation destination for the nature lover who like to be in close proximity to attractions, but far enough away to be in lost in paradise.

You can visit most any attraction on the island with just a short drive - Golf the famous Black Pearl Golf Course at Pristine Bay, spend the day in lost paradise at Little French Key, fly high zip lining, visit the monkey & parrot sanctuary, swim with the dolphins, or go deep diving or snorkeling the second largest reef system in the world!

Enjoy the variety of hot spots for nightlife and dining, from open air dining, to formal dining, Roatan has it all!

Our staff can arrange any activity you want, making your vacation worry-free and memorable.
