Winter is upon us! –                                                                                                                            As much of North America experiences ‘winter’ we also do on Roatan. With night time lows in the hi 60’s (not taking ‘wind chill’ or ‘feels like’ temperatures into consideration), and daytime highs in the low to mid 80’s, we wish our deepest condolences. How about maybe considering dusting off the snow, making some reservations and enjoying some warmth. Timing is always good but this time of year, well it is more like outstanding. What do you think? Catch some warmth while you shop for a future build homesite or residential piece of paradise. CLICK HERE

West Bay Beach is rated as one of the Best Beaches in the WORLD! There are very few homes (a lot of condos) for sale so it is rare to actually have a home listed in that coveted area. This duplex (both upstairs and down) you may wish to check out. Rent one and live in the other or rent both. The rental history for the past two years has not been very good due to considerable down time for remodeling. That said the rental potential is very positive. How do I know? Easy, I used to own it and I know with some marketing efforts this could be a pretty good place for your consideration. 50 steps from crystal clear waters, white powder sand.

How about some visual? They say a picture says a thousand words! –                                            

If you are looking for a short overview of the island this may be the place to start                              

Need Answers to Your Questions? These two links may be your best place to start –                


You are not familiar with the island. This video provides a lot about where you may want to buy on the island. The properties above or on the MLS have a “MAP” tab. Watch this video first, then on the properties that may interest you, you can locate and zoom in and out to see where it is.

Stay warm, or as warm as you can folks. It is brutal for many of you. Your parents and grandparents didn’t go to Florida or Arizona for retirement for no reason. Time to start planning your getaways whether that be for vacations, investment, retirement or, yes this is happening more and more, relocation.

Questions or concerns? Tell Us About You and we can be there for you before, during and after the sale.

Best Regards to All.    RE/MAX on Roatan.
