Vivaro Roatan is a collection of purposely designed vacation homes in stunning locations. Privately managed and meticulously maintained our properties are at a standard well the above most homes on the island. Roatans fringing reef system rises up from the very deep Cayman Trench. The coral reef extends directly from the shoreline, fringing the perimeter of the island with a near-vertical wall. Vivaro - West End sits on the elevated fossil coral reef dating back more than a million years and feet from the stunning underground ecosystem that makes Roatan a fantastic destination. HIGHLIGHTS: ***On a quiet residential point, Vivaro - West End is a 5 minute flat walk to Half Moon Bay and the heart of West End. Avoid the growing noise pollution of more central properties (Coral Vista, properties on Half Moon Bay, etc.) and the steep walk uphill (Sunset Villas) ***The property has backup power (no power = no water, flushing toilets, showers, AC, fans, etc) and UV filtered water. ***2 Oceanview Master Suites and a large creative lofted room - Sleeps 10 - 12 ***LOCATION: Vivaro - West End sits on Roatan's stunning iron shore. The iron shore is the elevated fossilized coral reef dating back more than a million years to the Pleistocene epoch. Outside of its beauty, the iron shore offers a better breeze and less bugs than properties on the sand or in the jungle. From the deck you are feet from the Caribbean Sea. When you step out your front door, fantastic snorkeling, a beautiful beach, and island life are only minutes away. ***Private Infinity Pool and a spacious deck with ample seating ***Spacious and well provisioned Chef's Kitchen Vivaro - West End - South House is a brand new three bedroom OCEAN FRONT luxury home in the most peaceful and private area of West End. The ocean is literally feet away. The South House sleeps a maximum of 12 people. Built right on the iron shore, this West facing property affords amazing sunset views and sea breezes year round. From the kitchen you will see every wave, the dive boats in front, fish jumping, and sometimes pods of dolphins. You truly feel as if you are floating on the ocean. While you might never want to leave the incredible deck, the bars, restaurants, activities and dive shops of West End are just a short walk away. A highlight of the house is the large infinity edge pool jutting out over the iron shore. The pool is an amazing spot to cool off with magnificent sunsets as a backdrop. The size and position of this pool make it very unique in West End - private pools are rare - many are very small plunge pools. From your morning coffee on the deck to floating in the creative infinity pool at sunset, there will be days you will not want to leave. The central vaulted great room is spacious with extremely large accordion doors that open onto a sprawling deck with stunning views. A large L-shaped couch and dining table that seats at least twelve adds to the functionality of this room. LED lights highlight the trellised ceiling while four ceiling fans help keep you cool. There is also large Smart TV (Netflix, Amazon) and a BOSE Soundtouch speaker to enjoy your favorite music. The sprawling outdoor deck space surrounds a large infinity pool with a tanning ledge and offers spectacular views of Roatan's fabulous reefs and spectacular sunsets. There is ample furniture, from lounge chairs and sofas, to a large shaded table for all your group to relax, sun, dine, play games, or read.

Every option from LED lights to energy star rated appliances help to conserve daily usage. The power on Roatan is diesel generated and there are frequent, but brief outages. At Vivaro, because of a backup generator you will barely know when the power goes out. You will have lights, AC, water pressure, and be able to cook. Internet and TV also go down during power outages. You will be charged for your group's electricity usage. With intelligent and careful use of AC, lights, and fans this charge should be minimal. This means AC only at night or when in the room, AC set at around 22 degrees, lights and fans off when not needed, etc. Energy conservation should always be a goal if you want to minimize your charges. The meter will be read upon check in and again at check out. Charges will be deducted from your security deposit. Charges have ranged from $50 to $200 depending on the renters personal choices. There is a $200 cleaning charge for all groups. This includes a light cleaning at least once during your stay and a deep cleaning after your checkout. Sheets and towels will not be changed every day. Water is scarce and conservation required. We expect guests to keep the house and kitchen reasonably clean during their stay. If you desire more frequent cleaning please let us know so we can book a trusted cleaner. We also include transportation from the airport to the house for stays of five nights or more. (One car or van per group. We can help arrange additional cars if needed. Extra charge for driver to wait while you shop at Eldon's), If you choose to rent cars, we will sent a driver to guide you to the house. We can help you arrange the return trip and quote you a price. We are open to events. There will be additional event fees. Please inquire. *The house is self catering. It is a private home, not a hotel. We provide the stunning luxury house - you make your vacation the best ever. We provide light cleaning - not daily sheet changes etc. *You will need to purchase and bring some household items - shampoo, body soap etc. Some cleaning supplies are provided but we hope you enjoy your vacation and leave the laundry for when you return home with wonderful memories. There might be some pool floats - or the last guests popped them all. *We love feeling a bit local on fabulous Roatan - meeting new travelers, expats, and locals at Sundowner's is a not to miss activity. Experiencing the small grocery stores, buying some fruit on the street, meeting a local cat, realizing how loud the tiny mosquito eating geckos can.

      The house, the owner, the staff, the location were simply amazing. The pictures do not do it justice

      It was so easy dealing with th owner. Matt, the manager, was resourceful, available and friendly. I've rented many homes all over the world and this house is the best yet. The pictures do not do it justice.

      5/5 Excellent

        This place is truly perfect in every way...

        Anyone who wouldn’t be happy here needs to go see a doctor. The place is stunning, the pictures are spot on but even better in person once you open up the doors and walk out back. The process of booking, paying, arriving, Matt the property mgr and Tanya the owner - all effortless. We only lost power once and Vivaro House has a generator so we didn’t miss a beat. Zero complaints or concerns and hope we’re lucky enough to go back some day!! PS no need to rent a car, easy walk to town, grocery, meals, shopping, water taxi and dive op (we used Sun Divers and they were equally as wonderful).

        5/5 Excellent

          Beautiful home in perfect location

          We stayed at the Vivaro South House over New Year’s and it was perfect! We had two families, each with three kids. The configuration of two identical master bedrooms and one large bunk room was great. The bunk room had more than enough room for all six kids. The house is very well maintained, modern and very comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with every pan, utensil etc that we needed. There is someone who comes every day to maintain the gorgeous infinity pool and deck area and another person who comes every other day to clean the house and wash towels as necessary. It was a very pleasant surprise to have that level of service. The house is an easy walk to West End where there are restaurants, small grocery stores, water taxis, a beach etc. We would definitely recommend planning your grocery list before you arrive and asking the driver to stop at Eldin’s on the way from the airport. It made the trip so easy and hassle free to have some basic groceries right when we arrived. The property managers, Matt and Andrea, really took careful of anything we needed. They booked all our transportation, dinner reservations, helped us with activities and anything else we needed. They also arranged a pizza chef, Junior, to come to the house one night for a pizza party. The whole trip was so easy and the island is beautiful with lots of great activities. Staying at Vivaro was perfect and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again!!

            Gorgeous home on the water!

            As others have said, the pictures don't do this lovely home justice! It was spacious and bright, with attractive and functional furnishings that made relaxing after a day at the beach a pleasure. Beautiful sunsets at the end of the day were a highlight of our stay, and the kids loved hanging out in the pool while the adults chit chatted in the comfy chairs. One of our friends snorkeled right off the shore and said there was lots to see there, the only concern is boats that come around the point and drive by close to shore. The beds and pillows were high quality and very comfortable, and the air conditioning in the bedrooms worked great. Excellent wifi and a generator for when the power goes out was also a plus since outages are common on Roatan. Overall we had a wonderful stay and everything about Vivaro South was top notch. We also loved that it was within walking distance of the shops and restaurants on West End, but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet in the evenings. Already planning our next stay in this fantastic location!

            5/5 Excellent

              What a great place!

              We travel frequently on vacation and typically stay in nicer homes or resorts and we've never been happier than we were with the accommodations at Vivaro South House. Time does not allow us to go into detail, but any small shortcomings were greatly overshadowed by all the wonderful attributes of this property and the very reasonable rental rates. If you're even considering renting this home, just do it, you will not be disappointed. You can thank me later!
