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.
