A Roatan Investment Opportunity for Lifestyle

Finding a Roatan investment opportunity that fits your needs is important to me and to my colleagues all around the island. Investing in Roatan real estate is a decision to be made with care and expertise. That’s why I’m highlighting Springwater Resorts in Camp Bay. It’s a unique investment opportunity that any Roatan lover should explore!

Camp Bay Beach

Camp Bay Beach

On the far East End of the Caribbean island of Roatan, you’ll find empty stretches of white sand beach. You’ll see swaying palm fronds dancing in the sea breeze. And you’ll find acres of dense, pristine tropical jungle.

To call this paradise is not an exaggeration.

Of course, with the title of paradise comes a warning! This won’t be your paradise if you don’t like tropical sunshine, if you don’t love wild natural landscapes, and if watching the sunset each evening along the endless horizon all sounds terrible to you.

A Tropical Island Escape

The eastern end of Roatan is quiet and laidback. There are plenty of folks living out this way, so you’ll have excuses to gather for beach days and tropical drinks. But you’ll also enjoy space, privacy, and a quiet tranquility that’s just so hard to find elsewhere these days!

Springwater Resorts is a new development property in the Camp Bay area of Roatan. This is pretty much the end of the road out here! You’ll be able to easily access the grocery stores, shops, restaurants, and medical services in other towns. But you’ll be far from any traffic, pollution, and other chaos that takes over built-up places.

Here, you can relax into a hammock for a mid-day siesta. Or rise with the sun and do a bit of landscaping and gardening if you’d like. Maybe you’ll just spend your days basking in sunshine, walking along the gentle surf, or reading under a palm tree. Just watch out for coconuts!

Life here follows the rhythm of nature. We enjoy life while the sun is up and we relax into starry skies with the Milky Way visible overhead at night.

If you’re looking for somewhere to spend your days marveling at the beauty of nature, Springwater Resorts might just be your perfect slice of paradise.

About Springwater Resorts

Springwater Resorts master plan

Springwater Resorts master plan

Plans for the development can be viewed on the website, with condos and villas available alongside ample amenities.

But the focus of this community is on a quality lifestyle. Those who invest in this community are those who want a better way of life for themselves and for their families. This is a long-term commitment to the community and to slowing down.

There’s a reason we call it “The Good Life” here on the island. Getting on Island Time, recognizing the important things in life, and settling into a happier cadence each day…this is La Buena Vida here in Roatan.

If this feels like what you’re looking for, maybe this community will be the right place for you. Being on the far East End of the island, community is very important. We’re a little more self-sufficient on this side of the island.

Think of it as living in a rural community back home. We plan a little better before running errands. And we support our neighbors better, too. We help each other out and we look out for each other in rural areas.

That’s why this community is being built with our neighbors — and our beautiful natural environment— in mind.

A Roatan Investment Opportunity

Investing in Roatan can take many forms. There are plenty of developments and housing associations where you might see a quick ROI and move on to the next big investment.

Springwater Resorts is not that type of investment.

This community is looking for investors and owners who share a vision of growth and support. Investing in this development means helping the local community and reinvesting in the local economy.

Your Roatan investment will also help to build a library in Camp Bay, as well as amenities like a bakery and a tour company. This community is being designed with the entire neighborhood in mind. Creating a social space for locals to enjoy is more important than creating a gated community that angers neighbors.

If you’re looking for a tropical island escape where you can live the good life while also giving back to the community and the environment, then maybe this is your new home.

Springwater Resorts is seeking people like you who know good value and doing good can go hand-in-hand.

Life in the Slow Lane

Island Time Roatan

Island Time Roatan

If you’re ready to invest in Roatan, then you are probably considering spending at least part of the year here. Whether you’re considering moving here full-time or just for the winter months as a snowbird, there are some lifestyle adjustments I recommend you consider.

Moving to Roatan means slowing down. No matter where you’re from, island life is on a different time zone altogether!

Get on Island Time and relax.Things don’t need to happen right now, they can happen in due time. Let the tides calm your urgency and let the sun guide your day.

Learning to slow down and adjust to life here can be a challenge for some. If you’re worried about your own adjustment, I recommend you come to the island for an extended visit. Stay here for a few months and see how you like it.

Anyone can fall in love on a week-long vacation! But you’ll get a better idea of your own happiness here if you stay for a few months.

Also, do some research! I’ve written about life in Roatan many times, so read through these blogs to get an idea of what it’s like here long-term:

About Camp Bay

Springwater Resort Camp Bay

Beach Community in Camp Bay Roatan

Camp Bay is along Roatan’s north shore at the far East End of the island. This side of Roatan is much more rural, with natural jungle taking over the majority of the island landscape.

Without the large crowds of the western side of the island, Camp Bay enjoys stretches of powder-soft, white-sand beaches. Palm trees and coconuts, tropical birdsongs and the gentle sounds of surf sliding over sand…life here is like a postcard of paradise!

The community in Camp Bay is, much like the whole island, a blend of locals and foreigners who have made this place their home. Multiple languages and eclectic cultures come together on the East End of Roatan to enjoy nature at its best.

There are neighbors around the resort area, and it is very important to the community that any investor is committed to protecting the natural environment and to supporting the local community.

Springwater Resorts will develop a community here that helps reinvest in the area, including building a community library and other amenities that can benefit everyone.

Being part of the community and sharing the vision of Springwater Resorts is really important. You’ll need to ensure your own future plans are aligned to make this the right investment. If you agree with community support and environmental protection, then I’m sure you’ll love where this community is headed!

What are Annual Costs for a Beachfront Home in Roatan?

This is a  SOLD home in Sandy Bay with 160 feet of beach frontage, dock and easy access to everything you might need. I’ve gone through all of the bills to give potential Roatan real estate buyers an idea of the annual costs for a beachfront home in Roatan.

This White Sandy Beacfront home is spacious concrete home divided into two-levels on 0.40 acres of land. Located in the small community of Seadancer,  walking distance to a restaurant, dive shop and entertainment at Sol y Mar Beach Club just down the beach. Also included on the property is two units that offer rental potential. The home is currently divided into three units, with 3 bedrooms/ 3 bathrooms upstairs and two apartments that consist of 2 bedrooms/ 1.5 bathroom and 1 bedroom and 1 bath

Beachfront home on Roatan for sale

Annual Costs for a Beachfront Home in Roatan

Want to know more about the cost of living in a beachfront home in Roatan? Here’s a comprehensive breakdown of the costs

I’ll use the current exchange rate ($1 = L.24.64) for any charges listed in Lempiras, although sometimes you will pay US Dollars, depending on the company.

  • Yearly property taxes are about L.25,251.64 ($1024). Annual insurance runs about $1,050 (liability only covers the structure and dock)
  • Electricity monthly has been around L.4,830 ($196)Costs like electricity are very subjective. For example, in this beach home, the seller didn’t use much of the AC and I think the monthly cost might come down if more LED lights were used around the house. Motion sensor lights would also help. This annual cost comes to around $2,460.
  • Water -the house has cistern to collect rainwater. The cistern in this house has a capacity of 10,000 gallons. When water is needed the owner buys from Water Express Roatan.  They own a truck that holds a load of 2,000 gallon and will cost you L.2,000 ($81.16)  Annual costs are about L.19,997.82 ($811.60) that’s when using 20,000 gallon per year.
  • To maintain the grounds of the property and beach you are looking at L. 6,899 ( $280)
  • ($280) per month. You can cut this down if you are spending a lot of time at home and could do the maintenance yourself. Annual costs for this service are $3,360.
  • Internet and Cable costs  L.1352.58 ($53.92) per month – or $647.04 for the year.
  • The seller opted not to have an alarm system. But if you were to get Bulldog Security (the most popular security company in Roatan) and have them monitor your alarm, it costs $85 per month. Again, annual costs would be $1,020.

Hi From Roatan Island

Buyers Market on the Caribbean Island of Roatan

If you’re looking for a buyers market on a Caribbean island, Roatan should be your first port of call. After the housing market crashed in the US, Roatan saw a steep decline in pricing that simply has not fully recovered. Where other places have seen prices rise back to their highest levels, Roatan is a buyers market with incredible deals to still be found

Don’t believe me? Just check out this article in the New York Times highlighting the value of a sprawling compound for sale here in Sandy Bay. And that’s definitely not the only deal on the island!

Buyers Market in the Caribbean

Palmetto Bay Beach Lot for Sale

Roatan is primed for buyers to get the best deal for Caribbean island real estate. Those units that were selling for $1M before the housing crash are now available at half the price. We’re seeing luxury homes in focus this year, with recovery in the US and Canada encouraging residents to seek a second-home investment.

The rental market is popular in Roatan. This offers second-home investors the option to spend a few weeks on vacation here in Roatan and then earn an income renting the home to others the rest of the year. It’s a win-win when you’re ready to expand your investment portfolio.

I am a Resort and Second Home Property Specialist as well as an International Real Estate Specialist, so I know a thing or two about making the right investment here on the island. Feel free to ask me more about the current buyers market situation.
