Vivaro Luxury Beachfront with Amazing Private Beach!
This gorgeous and large 4,500 square foot luxury home is situated on Roatan’s beautiful west side, in the Bay of Honduras. Five bedrooms and seven bathrooms sit on a stunning, private white sand beach, where the waves of the Carribean Sea lap up onto the shore. The crystal-clear cerulean waters teem with life and offer superb snorkeling through the Meso-American reef below, while the above horizon offers extravagant sunsets night after night. The area is also known for its exceptional diving opportunities. You’ll experience ecstasy as you sit on the sprawling deck next to the infinity pool and soak in this paradise while savoring a banana daiquiri made from fruit grown right on the property. There's simply nothing more luxurious than a beach in paradise to call all your own!
In the expansive great room, ceilings with enchanting Honduran wood beams arc high above the matching floors that direct your eye towards the exotic panorama beyond the glass accordion doors. With an open floor plan into the dining area and many different seating options, you’ll have great views no matter where you decide to settle in.
The Chef’s Kitchen is spacious, and exhibits white stone counter tops and dark Honduran wood cabinets. A substantial island with a General Electric gas cook top provides seating for four, and two separate GE convection ovens offer the ability to prepare a feast with ease. The kitchen is also equipped with a double door LG refrigerator, which features UV filtered water and ice. It has been meticulously outfitted with high quality knives, cookware, dishes, silverware, and more for anything you may possibly need.
The four capacious, identical master suites each feature king beds and face the ocean with their own separate decks. The bedrooms also include the Honduran hardwood floors, blackout curtains, and luxury linens and towels. Their sizable bathrooms are adorned with stately marble countertops, rejuvenating rainfall shower heads and private bathrooms.
The fifth bedroom is a great bunk room that has 24 foot high ceilings and custom-made triple bunk beds that were handmade from local Honduran wood. The bottom bunks are double beds, and the middle and top bunks are twin sized, totaling six beds. Ladders lead up to the second bunk and a platform between the beds, from where the top bunk can be easily accessed. A lofted media area tops this room off with a twin trundle bed, TV, DVD player, and lots of pillows to relax or watch movies. Its bathroom also has a rainfall shower head and separate toilet. Kids and adults alike will love the comfort and space of this room.
Additionally, a powder room can be found in the great room, and a seventh bathroom with a separate shower and toilet are located below the pool on the sand.
The very large 2,500 square foot deck space surrounds the gigantic infinity pool, is perfect for sunbathing and offers spectacular views of the nearby reef and is a great viewing area for the incredible nightly sunsets. There’s ample furniture, from lounge chairs to sunbeds, and a large shaded table for your whole group to relax, sun, dine, play games, or read in the amazing outdoors here. Pair your delicious morning coffee with the ambient sounds of the ocean and wildlife from this exceptional lanai!

Delightful trip in Roatan!
We had a delightful trip and stay in Roatan. They house was everything we needed, relaxing and plenty of space for our party of 6. Most importantly the managers were outstanding. We arrive late and tired and did not want to shop for our food until morning, however we all needed coffee the next day they were happy to bring us some of their stock to avoid going without. We found everyone on the island friendly and conversational.”
We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful beach house and its amazing oceanfront beach. We were awash in the beauty of creation. The home was incredibly well designed and built with great attention to detail. Especially appreciated were the 4 identical master suites which gave each couple wonderful accommodation. . The owners and property manager took great care to ensure we enjoyed many wonderful activities and great food during the week. Whether a Hatteras excursion, fly-fishing, local island food or gourmet dining, all was enjoyed. The house staff was extremely attentive and kept our home away from home impeccable. We especially appreciated how the owners were passionate about pouring into this island community.”
Incredible Beach Home!
Wow! What a wonderful home and incredible location. We fell in love with the West End as soon as we got here. Lots of small restuarants and dive shops, and what seemed like a very large ex-pat community. The town wasn't as touristy as West Bay, but a lot more active than Pristine Bay. Tayna, the owner, and Mark, the property manager, were both incredibly helpful with recommending restaurants and activities to consider. The home is amazing. There are two master bedrooms and the large kitchen/living room in the main building, and then another two master bedrooms and a bunk room with 6 bunk beds and a loft in the second building. We didn't even use the second building and could have easily invited three other couples and their kids to join us without feeling crowded. The home sits right on the bay and within snorkeling distance of some world class snorkeling and dive sites. We saw 4 octopi and some squid during a night snorkel right off our beach. Late October/Early November is definitely the rainy season. The airport was closed due to flooding the day before we arrived, but after the first couple days of rain the weather cleared up for us. The home has solar backup power which came in handy as the island lost power the first four nights we were there. The house is located at the end of a long dirt road. West End would be a long walk or a short taxi ride. We rented a car at the airport and it came in very handy for our daily trips into West End, running to Eldon's for groceries and exploring the island. Our teenage son got his dive certification at Sun Divers during the first half of the week, then we all enjoyed diving together afterward. They are professional and friendly, and there are dozens of great dive sites within a 10-minute boat ride. We prefer the smaller boutique dive shops like Sun Divers versus some of the other dive shops that cater to the cruise ships. If you are looking for a resort experience then I would recommend Grand Roatan, and if you prefer a quiet golfing community with security gates and unlimited a/c then you might like Pristine Bay. But if you want a unique beach-front home experience with a fun vibe, then Vivaro might be perfect for you. It has definitely been one of our top vacation experiences. ”
