Our goal is for Vivaro to be as energy efficient as possible. 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 solar panels and battery storage you thankfully will never know when the power goes out. You will have lights, be able to flush toilets, shower and cook. There will also be AC in the main house bedrooms. (The Great Room AC, bunk room and 2 masters on left side of the house will not work during power outages) Internet and TV also go down during power outages - this is usually the only reason we know there has been an issue.
The solar power you use is included. However, it is not enough to power a full house. You will be charged the most recent rate for your groups electricity usage. The house is solar powered with a large battery backup system. 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. The battery back up can only support the house at night or during a power outage if it has time to charge. 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.
The central AC (the large great room and kitchen) and the two masters and loft room are not connected to solar. If you choose to use the central AC, there will definitely be usage determined when you checkout. The split unit AC's in the bedrooms are very economical but you should still turn them off when not in the room to save charges.
Charges have ranged from $100 to $600 depending on the renters personal choices.
There is a $200 cleaning charge for all groups. This includes on average light cleaning 2 times in 7 days 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 5 night or longer. (One car or van per group. We can help arrange additional cars if needed. There is an additional $10 charge for the driver to wait if you choose to stop at the grocery store.) 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.
No guests or parties allowed without prior arrangement. Only those listed in the required signed contract and paid for will be allowed at the property.
We are open to events. There will be additional event fees. Please inquire.
*You will need to purchase and bring some household items - shampoo, body soap etc. We have some snorkel gear but not enough for everyone. There might be some pool floats - or the last guests popped them all.
