Beachfront Acreage with Endless Opportunities

On the Roatan real estate market, this 1.25-acre beachfront lot rests within easy walking distance of West End Village en route to world-famous West Bay Beach.

This location cannot be understated: finding such a large tract of empty beachfront property in such a popular area is now incredibly rare. Take a look at this beautiful beachfront acreage with endless opportunities for development.

Prime Beachfront Real EstateRotan Beachfrontage

 

It goes without saying that a beachfront lot on a tropical island is a dream come true.

This location offers even more opportunity because of its proximity to Roatan’s two premier tourism centers, without being in the thick of the crowds.

If you’re considering investing in the Caribbean, this is your chance to get in on the upswing in Roatan.

This is honestly some beachfront acreage with endless opportunities. Let’s just go through a few ideas to get you thinking…

Build Your Own Dream Home in the Caribbean

With 1.25 acres to enjoy, you can design the home of your dreams. Enjoy unlimited access to the Caribbean Sea from your front door and lush tropical jungle at your back.

Bask in the privacy of a locale that isn’t filled with tourists, while still being close enough to walk to bars, restaurants, dive shops, and other activities in West End.

Note that there is currently no road access, so no worries about traffic! And getting around by boat is much more fun.

This opportunity to design your own beachfront dream home from start to finish is rare in the Caribbean these days. Finding empty beachfront property in such a desirable area means this won’t last long!

Establish a Small Development of Homes

Vacation rentals and snowbird homes are incredibly popular on the Caribbean island of Roatan. Building a small development on this beachfront acreage is a fantastic option.

Take a look at Turtle Beach and Orchid Beach, two small neighborhood developments just past this beachfront acreage headed toward West Bay. With homes there being popular on the vacation rental market, income streams into the developments throughout the year.

Create a Condo Community – Growing in Popularity in Roatan

Condos are incredibly convenient for countless reasons, but there are only a few small community condo developments in Roatan.

This beachfront acreage offers an amazing opportunity to build a small condo complex right on the beach. The beautiful area offering all the conveniences homeowners or vacationers could want will make for an easy selling point.

Similar concepts to look at in the area include Villas del Playa or Mangrove Dock condos.

Build a Small Luxury Beachfront Boutique Hotel

What more could a visitor want than a beachfront location away from the crowds offering high-end luxuries and world-class service? Unfortunately, there aren’t many hotels providing experiences of that caliber here in Roatan yet.

That’s a gap in the market that will inevitably be filled – this beachfront acreage being an ideal example of a waiting opportunity.

The only small luxury beachfront boutique hotels around include Xbalanque  Ibagari or Mayoka Lodge. Other luxury accommodations are large resorts, while other small boutique hotels lack the “luxury” title.

With increased interest in the island of Roatan from tourists around the world, the market will continue to expand and services are already rising to meet those needs.

A small luxury beachfront boutique hotel might find itself primed and ready to welcome those high-end visitors destined to come to Roatan in the coming years.

Whatever dream you can come up with for this beachfront acreage, I’m sure the right investor will happily maximize its potential. Contact me for more details about this listing or to arrange to view it in person.

Cruise to Roatan…And Never Go Home!

Visiting Roatan and purchasing real estateHave you ever daydreamed about just ditching it all and moving to a tropical island paradise? Maybe you’ve thought of taking a cruise, finding perfection, and just not getting back on the boat. Dreams can come true you know! Here’s an idea: take a cruise to Roatan…and never go home!

Wait, Where is Roatan?

Roatan is a pristine, verdant island in the Western Caribbean, usually on the same cruise itinerary as Mexico and Belize. Roatan is part of the Bay Islands of Honduras, which boast some of the world’s most beautiful coral reefs.

Roatan is often called the Gem of the Caribbean for its stunning green jungle, bright white soft sand beaches, and turquoise Caribbean Sea quietly lapping the shore all around.

The island is a favorite for International Living magazine and we have a large community of expats from the U.S. and Canada.

There are direct flights to Roatan from Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Dallas, Toronto, Montreal, Belize City, Panama City, San Salvador, and Grand Cayman. That means you can reach pure paradise in only a few hours from the U.S., Canada, and several other regional airport hubs.

But Roatan is truly a world apart in its beauty and idyllic way of life.

Roatan Cruise Ports

Roatan has two cruise ports welcoming ships from Carnival, Princess, Holland America, Costa, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Thomson Cruises, and more.

Mahogany Bay is the Carnival Cruise Lines port in Roatan and offers plenty of on-site activities, bars, and restaurants.

The Port of Roatan is located in the capital of Coxen Hole and offers quick, easy access to the most beautiful beaches and tons of fun activities.

If you’re taking a cruise to Roatan, you might feel the same way so many cruise ship visitors have felt before you: WOW!

This island is stunning and it often causes issues for people when they get back home.

You see, they can’t stop thinking about Roatan and life back home just seems so boring after their cruise visit here.

So, what’s the solution for those post-vacation blues? Don’t go home!

Ok, ok, I say this jokingly…

BUT!

If you do cruise to Roatan and fall in love, you’ll certainly want to book a return trip as soon as possible.

If you’ve been here before and already know you love this island, join the many others who do real estate tours during their time in port.

Check Out Roatan Real Estate During Your Cruise

Yup, that’s right! You can actually check out Roatan real estate during your cruise stop on the island.

While it’s a quick view of the opportunities available, doing a real estate tour during your cruise to Roatan will show you the variety and scope of our real estate market.

If you’re serious about potentially investing in real estate in Roatan, a real estate tour during your time in port can be your starting point.

Contact me to let me know when you’ll be here and let’s discuss your priorities.

I’m happy to show you around so you can better decide if this is the right investment for you.

Cost of Construction in Roatan

If you want to move to Roatan to live the island dream life, you could consider building your own home. If you’re not on a strict timeline for moving here, the cost of construction in Roatan might be more appealing than current inventory for real estate. Let’s go through the pros and cons of construction in Roatan.

Cost of Construction in Roatan

Right now the average cost per square foot in Roatan is between $90 and $110. That price different is based on wood versus concrete. Where you build your home might determine the materials that you should use, but more often, it’s simply a personal choice.

Traditional island homes are built of wood. They rest on stilts and then sometimes a second home will be built below, on the ground floor. More recently, construction has begun to vary widely as people from all around the world come to live in Roatan.

Given this huge interest in moving to Roatan, you might find that the current real estate market doesn’t offer the price point or construction style that you really want. Buying land and building your own home could be the alternative, with land prices still being quite affordable.

Pros of Building Your Own Home in Roatan

Building your own home in Roatan can be a dream come true. You’ve imagined your island lifestyle and the views you’ll enjoy from your front porch…you just need to make it happen.

In building your own home, you can choose exactly how you want everything laid out. You can choose whether your bedroom will face the sunrise or sunset. Align your kitchen and dining area for the best views from your hillside or beachfront location. Take advantage of the breezes and line up your windows for the optimal cross-breeze to cool your home. Building your own home is a fantastic option for many people.

Cons of Building Your Own Home in Roatan

The cons of building in Roatan are fairly obvious: as with construction anywhere, it can often take longer than initially anticipated. On an island, however, that extension is often much longer. Don’t underestimate the length of time building your own island home can take. It could be several years before it’s livable!

That being said, if you’re planning ahead for retirement, or intending to move when the kids graduate, or just easing into island life over the next several years…building your own home might be ideal. Slow and steady wins the race, remember?

Contractors and Builders in Roatan

If you decide to head down this path to take advantage of an affordable cost of construction in Roatan, I am more than happy to provide personal recommendations for contractors, builders, carpenters, architects, and even interior designers. Whatever you need, I can provide.

A really important note to remember is that this is a different country with a different climate and different regulations and different styles. I highly recommend you use a local architect who is familiar with Roatan to best design your island home.

You want to utilize the best materials and take advantage of the local climate and topography – oftentimes that means styling a home differently than you would do back home.

Move to Roatan

Moving to Roatan is a dream for many people. Looking at the real estate market, you might be shaking your head thinking that nothing looks perfect. Consider buying land and building on Roatan as an investment in yourself.

You can create your dream home from scratch. You can take it from imagination to reality, enjoying every stage along the way. And then when that dream home is finally ready, you can step into the island life exactly how you’ve always imagined it.

Move to Roatan to live your dream life. That’s what I did, and I have absolutely no regrets! Let me know what your dream home entails, and I’ll let you know whether building or buying would be better suited to your dreams.

Layout of Roatan

The island of Roatan is comprised of two municipalities, each consisting of a multitude of neighborhoods. If you want to move to Roatan and invest in real estate, it’s important to research the many different neighborhoods and the lifestyles common to each. Understanding the layout of Roatan will help you to better understand your options for living in Roatan .

A vacation to Roatan will show you the highlights of a specific neighborhood where you stay. You’ll try local restaurants and visit local bars; you might even stop into some local shops and mini-marts.

But living in Roatan is very different from a vacation. You’ll need more resources and amenities, perhaps access to schools or jobs, and you’ll seek a certain vibe for your permanent neighborhood.

Let’s go through the layout of Roatan so you have a general idea of what to expect from different parts of the island.

Roaan MunicipalitiesRoatan’s Two Municipalities

Roatan is comprised of two official municipalities: Municipality of Roatan and Municipality of Santos Guardiola.

The Municipality of Santos Guardiola is the eastern half of Roatan, from First Bight all the way east. The official seat of government is located in Oakridge, which is also the main center of commerce for the municipality.

The Municipality of Roatan is the western half of the island, comprising everything west of First Bight. The seat of government is located in Coxen Hole, which is also a large commercial center. French Harbour is another major commercial center for this municipality, although its proximity to the East End makes it a convenient commercial area for both municipalities.

Roatan ExpatPopular Expat Neighborhoods in Roatan

Expats in Roatan live in neighborhoods from the western tip of the island all the way to the eastern tip. This diversity allows expats to choose from any of a variety of lifestyles and amenities.

If you want a quiet Caribbean retirement, head east. If you need a job or have young kids, you should look on the western side of the island. Whatever you seek, you’re sure to find it in Roatan.

For a quick breakdown, here are some of the most popular neighborhoods and their amenities.

West Bay consists of not just West Bay Beach, but also the neighborhoods off the beach. On the beach, you’ll find condo options at some of the most popular resorts on the island. Off the beach, single-family homes can be found in various design styles.

West End is another popular expat neighborhood, with a younger demographic and more of a laidback vibe. The single road running along the water is filled with tourists, locals, and expats, many of whom are barefoot and stopping to chat with everyone along the way.

Sandy Bay is a long stretch between West End and Coxen Hole where many expats search for homes on the beach. The convenience of access to commercial Coxen Hole and the nightlife and activities of West End makes Sandy Bay a desirable permanent home base.

Heading into French Harbour, Pristine Bay is another popular neighborhood. The island’s only golf course is located in this gated community, along with high-end, modern condos and villas.

Heading out of French Harbour, Pineapple Villas and Parrot Tree are two more gated communities offering many amenities for residents.

Beyond Parrot Tree heading east, you’ll come upon several popular East End neighborhoods, including First Bight, Second Bight, Politilly Bight, Calabash Bight, and Port Royal. Each of these neighborhoods offers more tranquillity and privacy than the western end of Roatan.Where to live in RoatanWhere to live in Roatan

Where you live in Roatan is up to your preferences and lifestyle. I am always happy to discuss our beautiful island more in-depth and to go through each neighborhood with you so you can make the best decision for your life.

How to Move to RoatanRoatan West Bay Beach

Moving to Roatan  is easier than you might think. If you find yourself regularly daydreaming of island life with its warm water and barefoot lifestyle, it’s time to make the move. Roatan real estate can be purchased by a non-resident, and if you plan to move to the island full time there are several residency options you can pursue rather easily.

If you’re retired, just prove you earn the minimum monthly pension to get your pensioner residency status. If you want to start a business or work in Roatan, you can start a corporation and then apply for residency through the business. In any case, I am happy to recommend specific attorneys on the island who will take care of every aspect of the move for you.

Direct flights will take you to a number of cities there, meaning you’re not moving so far away that you need to worry about never going back.

Moving to Roatan and living right on West Bay Beach is honestly a dream life…you can actually wake up, roll out of bed, and have your toes in the sand in a matter of seconds. Take your morning coffee in hand as you stroll down the beach listening to the birds in the trees lining the beach. Go for a morning run, or a swim, or head out in a kayak or paddleboard. You’ll find the beach life is a fun, active lifestyle that everyone loves!

Houses and Condos on the Island of Roatan

Anytime you’re moving to a new home, it’s important to understand your destination and the pros and cons of home design. On the tropical island of Roatan, you might encounter very different circumstances than what you’re used to back home. A tropical environment with unique critters and climate can mean a different style of home is necessary. Before you choose your new home in the Caribbean, here’s an idea of the differences between houses and condos on the island of Roatan.

Why Buy a House in Roatan

Houses offers privacy, space, and usually a garden area that you can fill with luscious tropical plants and flowers. Grow your own banana or mango trees, fill your garden with hummingbird feeders, and marvel at the vibrant flowers blossoming throughout the year.

If you buy a house in Roatan, you’ll get to enjoy the authentic Caribbean lifestyle. Hang your clothes to dry out in the sunshine, fill your home with fresh sea breezes, and lounge on your patio in complete privacy.

Why Buy a Condo in Roatan

Owning your own house offers privacy and space, but owning a condo offers you more freedom from maintenance. In a condo community, you have neighbors and designated professionals around you at all times, ensuring that your investment – your dream home – is well cared for and includes all the amenities you desire.

Living in an island condo community provides community spaces, like pools, restaurants, spas, gyms, and more. Additionally, most condo communities have beachfront access for you to enjoy. When the Caribbean Sea is your front yard, you don’t need much interior space at all!

Real Estate in Roatan

Roatan is a booming real estate market, so you can truly take your pick of dream home options on the island. If your dream home looks like an island villa overlooking the sea, or a modern condo only steps away from the pool and the beach, there are plenty of options to choose from for the perfect real estate in Roatan.

If you’re more independent and want to revel in the adventure of living on a foreign tropical island, look for houses that will give you the chance to interact with the local community more. You’ll need to make friends to learn which hardware stores have what you need, which contractors can do what you want, and which utility companies will give you the best service. Those types of questions connect you to your neighbors, helping you to meet new people and learn more about your new home.

If your idea of tropical paradise is living in a community on the beach where you can step out your front door to enjoy poolside drinks or beachfront breakfast, take a look at the condo community of Infinity Bay. Whether you live here full-time, or you come to Roatan as a snowbird or for the occasional vacation, living in an island condo community means you have all the gorgeous natural surroundings you imagine, while enjoying the convenience and ease of community amenities. You’ll know your home is taken care of while you’re away, and you can come back to find it just as you left it, without a worry in the world.

Whatever your tropical dream home looks like, I’m sure I can show you houses and condos on the island of Roatan that will be absolutely perfect. Contact me today to see what is available now.

What does  RSPS and IRES stand for and how does it help you when Buying and Selling on Roatan?

Resort and Second Home Property Specialist


In Roatan most buyers are not first time homeowners. Instead, they are looking to purchase a second home or make an additional investment. Some are searching for a spot to spend vacations, others a place to enjoy after they retire.

I was awarded the certification by the National Association of REALTORS in 2013 and have assisted many buyers in finding and purchasing their second investment property. I am Roatan’s only Resort and  Second Home Property Specialist.
