Vivaro - Beachfront - You Tube Video

Here on Roatan's west side, in the Bay of Honduras, the Caribbean sea teems with life below the sea and tranquility and unforgettable sunsets above. Few places in the world are quite like Roatan and at Vivaro Roatan - Beachfront you can experience the best of Roatan while savoring a banana daiquiri made from fruit grown on the property, fall asleep to the sound of the ocean, be picked up at the dock by a local dive shop, have an island chef prepare you a delectable meal, have a make your own pizza party with a local pizza master while you enjoy sunset at the house, have a massage on your private deck, take the short swim to an amazing reef, volunteer at a local community center, and marvel at the daily work of art that the sky becomes at sunset.

***LOCATION: Vivaro - Beachfront is a five bedroom private, luxurious, and spacious home in the heart of West End Village, Roatan. You are not steps away, you are on a large and private white sand beach (200 feet wide by 100 feet deep).  The villa is an oasis of panoramic views with incredible snorkeling directly in front of the house, a large relaxing infinity pool, luxurious amenities, and a very private yet very convenient location.

Located in the heart of West End, you are less than 3 minutes by car to the heart of happening West End Village. West End is a friendly, local community with everything you need with the advantage of being away from the cruse ship crowds of West Bay. There are no comparable private beachfront homes this close to West End. Be careful to understand the location of each property you are considering. Vivaro is a private home - not a hotel. It is privately managed, meticulously maintained, and a personal vacation home.

The house is a 4500 square foot luxury home built directly on your own 200 wide by 78 feet deep white sand beach. In front of you is stunning Mangrove Bight and the Meso-American reef - the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere. From your morning coffee on the deck to floating in the creative infinity pool at sunset, you might not want to leave. The house sits on a 3/4 acre gated lot which offers plenty of space, privacy and security.

The central great room is spacious with extremely large accordion doors that open onto a sprawling deck with stunning views.

The 2500 square feet of 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 to sun beds, to a large shaded table for all your group to relax, sun, dine, play games, or read.

The four spacious and identical master suites each face the ocean and each has a large deck. The master bedrooms feature Honduran wood floors, blackout curtains and luxury linens and towels. The large bathrooms with marble counter tops include rainfall shower heads and private toilet rooms.

The fifth bedroom is a large bunk room - perfect for children or a group room. This room has 24 feet high ceilings. Custom triple bunk beds handmade of Honduran hardwood feature two doubles on the bottom topped with 2 twin beds (6 beds in total). The lofted media area includes a twin trundle bed, a television and dvd player, and lots of pillows to relax, nap, or watch movies. This room has a bathroom with a rainfall shower and a separate toilet. Kids or adults will love the comfort and space of this room.

There is a also powder room in the great room and a 7th bathroom with separate shower and toilet outside below the pool on the sand.

The chef's kitchen is large with white stone countertops and dark Honduran wood cabinets. The GE gas cooktop is on a substantial island with seating for six. There are two GE convection ovens. The double door LG refrigerator features UV filtered water and ice. The kitchen has been meticulously outfitted with high quality knives, cookware, dishes, silverware, etc.

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.

Beachfront Vivaro! Amazing place.

Can’t say enough positive about the place. PERFECT setup for 4 couples with its 4 identical master suites, all with views of the water, and the shared living space. Huge bunk room for kiddos too. It’s location is perfect. 5 mins from West End and 15 mins to West Bay....although taking a 5 min Water Taxi to West Bay is more fun. Very roomy with nice large bathrooms. Full service kitchen if you want to cook. Just a great place. Tanya the owner is very directly involved and super helpful. Matt the caretaker / manager is the nicest young man and very responsive to your needs via text. Enjoy the wind/wave protected Bay and amazing sunsets! Must do; paddle board over to Cafe De Palo for an amazing breakfast or lunch right on the water.

We Love Vivaro!

This was our 2nd time at the beautiful 5 bedroom beachfront vivaro! We stayed 2 weeks this time and loved every minute. The house is perfect for big families or multiple families. We have mostly teenagers but my 11 year old loved having his own space in the loft in the bunkroom. The beach is so peaceful and the kids had the best time paddle boarding. When we wanted to go out on the town or book excursions Matt took care of everything! He booked it all and made it so easy! Junior came to the house and we had a pizza making party which is fun for everyone. Not to mention the pizzas are so yummy! We also had Blackie over to cook a Caribbean dinner. Her food is amazing and we had leftovers for a couple days which was so nice! Vivaro makes a good vacation great by going over and beyond with the customer service they provide. We are already looking at the calendar for next year.

Thanks for coming back and we look forward to hosting you again.

Views!!!

Property was amazing plenty of space. Has a great view of the ocean and has its own private beach. Close to good restaurants and night life.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We love the ocean and reef views and hope you can return to enjoy them another time.

Better than you can imagine!

Rarely do you get to a place where the pictures do not do it justice. Vivaro Roatan is that place. It is spectacular, even better than you can imagine. My family of 4 went for 4 nights. Our 2 four year old daughters had an amazing time in the pool, at the beach, dancing on the patio and playing in the bunk bed room. The staff was great. Matt helped my husband to arrange an amazing day for my 40th birthday and Chef Blackie cooked delicious dinners for us, allowing me to relax and enjoy my family instead of worrying about dinner. The island is tiny so it is easy to get to the grocery store or town when you want to. Tanya, the owner, was super helpful while planning our trip and so accommodating for us. Highly recommend Vivaro Roatan! Hope to return and enjoy it again!

Happy Birthday!!! We are so glad you had such a great trip and we look forward to welcoming you again.

Incredible house. Incredible place.

This was the best vacation. We traveled for spring break with three families all with teenagers. The house was perfect.We had many fun adventures on Roatan but we were always happy to come back to Vivaro to hang out. The home is beautiful and so comfortable. The outdoor areas are the best -- great views, great furniture, lots of shade and lots of sun. Matt (house manager) took care of everything we needed - he was great! The location was perfect -- you do need a car to get into town but being on the beach with a dock is a plus!

Thanks for choosing Vivaro Roatan. We are so happy your group had a fantastic time.

Most Memorable Beach Paradise XMas Vacation!!

We wanted a family XMas vacation for our big family and we found the perfect beach house - Vivaro Roatan! I highly recommend this property if you have a big group. Our memorable experience started with Tanya's (owner) very timely communications with me during my research & planning phase. Matt (on-site property manager) was awesome w/ his instant communication and met all of our needs during the week-long stay. He also gave us great recommendations on site-seeing places, activities, and restaurants. Marty (driver) took care of our transportation needs throughout the trip and his communication was also instantaneous. Are you noticing a theme?? This team was very responsive to our needs the whole time. This was a major contributor to our happiness. Given the large size of our group, we hired Blackie (chef) to cook a few meals for us at the house. Her cooking was delicious, she was very accommodating to our preferences, and she always had a smile on her face! The house itself was beautiful with all the amenities of home, including walk-in showers, 2 wifi's, and spacious rooms. Our kids loved the bunk-bed room (there were 6 bunk-beds in there). Matt made sure our personal beach was seaweed-free every day. 3 paddle-boards, snorkeling <50 ft from shore, and our own private swimming pool kept us all very well entertained... and the young kids never once complained they were bored! We will definitely rent from Tanya again. Thanks for the Most Memorable Beach Paradise XMas vacation, Tanya/Matt/Marty/Blackie !!

Wow - thanks so much for your detailed face star review. All of us at Vivaro Roatan are so pleased your large group had such a memorable stay at the house and in West End. We look forward to welcoming you again.

Island Time

3 mature brothers and our wives had a delightful week at the Roatan beach house! It is right on the sand and the views were postcard worthy. People were very friendly and everybody seemed to know each other. Many were from the states and nearly everybody spoke excellent English. We enjoyed exploring the island, snorkeling, reading books, hitting the bars and restaurants. We thought the food was excellent and prices cheap. We had a great time and if you are wanting some relaxing island time, you will too. Matt & Andrea were perfect hosts and made everything very easy.

Graduation Trip

Beautiful home and so comfortable and private. This was a perfect place for 3 dads and 3 boys to enjoy a diving and fishing trip celebrating high school graduation before headed off to college. Tanya was great recommending and making sure our trip went smoothly. Mark the house manger is great and made sure we had what we needed. The pool and the sunsets are spectacular! We will be back for sure bringing the moms and sisters next time!

Thank you so much for choosing Vivaro Roatan. We look forward to having the whole family back.

Paradise Found

From the moment we arrived at the Vivaro Beachfront we knew we had found paradise! I rented the home for a group of 10 adults in celebration of my husband's big 40. From the moment we walked in to the huge living room, we were greeted by the most breathtaking view of the infinity pool, meeting the amazing beach. The pictures of this home truly do not do it justice. The living , dinning and kitchen areas are HUGE and have every modern amenity that you can think of. The outdoor areas by the pool are also large and allow you to enjoy the breeze and the views. I was very impressed by the snorkeling that you can do right off the beach infront of the home, there is a large variety of coral and sea life. The home is luxurious, with every detail carefully designed to give you and your guests the most comfortable stay. I was impressed with the comfort of the beds, linens, towels, and high-class amenities that are in this home. We had the privilege of meeting Dave and Tanya during our visit and we were so impressed with their hospitality and kind spirits. They made us feel at home and truly cared about our comfort and went above and beyond anything I have ever experienced during a home rental. I can see that they genuinely care about their staff and the people in Roatan. I must also say thank you to the home manager Mark, who made out visit so easy. Mark is an asset to this home, as he helped us with scheduling meals at various restaurants, with transportation arrangements, even went and got ice for our group at one point. Mark does visit the property often to ensure the comfort of their guests. We appreciated his attention and care. Gerson and Daisy are also there often to keep the beach and the home in pristine condition, something that you also won’t find at many rental properties in Roatan. If you visit any of the Vivaro properties, you will be surrounded by luxury and care. You must also book a meal with Junior, the “pizza guy” the best pizza in Central America! We also booked two meals with Blacky, who also didn’t disappoint, she cooked one of the best meals we have had in years, you must try her coconut shrimp and key lime pie. Her husband Marty also provided transportation services any time we needed to go to West End and the grocery store. During our stay in Roatan we felt very safe. There were several folks in our group that had some concerns about the safety in Roatan, and after being there for a few hours quickly realized that it’s a safe, fun, beautiful and very laid back island. The home does come equipped with a security system, if at any point anyone felt unsafe, but again everyone was fear free and had a great time. We are already planning on bringing our kids back to this beautiful home and this hidden gem of an island. Vivaro will not disappoint you, it is premier luxury in paradise!

What a fantastic celebratory week!!!! It was such a pleasure to meet your whole group and we are so happy everyone felt safe, enjoyed the house and loved West End and all that it offers - especially Junior and Blacky. All of us at Vivaro Roatan thank you for choosing to stay with us and we cannot wait to welcome the family back.

Fun time in Roatan!!!

We went with a group of friends and had a fabulous time. From the moment we walked into the door, we were in Heaven. The house will take your breath away with the views, beach front access, snorkeling and paddle boarding. Mark takes pride in managing the property. Gerson and Daisy keep the place pristine and clean. Marty kept us safe while transporting us to various places on the island. He was always on time, professional and friendly. Blacky’s cooking was DELICIOUS (coconut shrimp and key lime pie were our favorites) and Junior’s pizzas were on point. I wish they would cook for my family every night! :-) Ruthless Roatan Charters, Tim, Michelle and Damian, were great captains and hosts for our deep sea fishing and snorkeling trip. Gingers, Sundowners and The Oasis are great places to eat and hang out. We can’t say enough wonderful things! Thank you for making our first trip to Roatan a memorable one!

We are so pleased you enjoyed Vivaro Roatan Beachfront as well as all the other people and activities that help make our guests trips extremely memorable. We hope to have you back for some more amazing coconut shrimp!!!
