***The property has backup power (no power = no water, flushing toilets, showers, AC, fans, etc) and UV filtered water 

***2 Oceanview King Bed Master Suites and a large lofted bunk room - Sleeps 12 - 14

Vivaro - West End - North House is in the most peaceful and private area of West End. This west facing property affords amazing sunset views and sea breezes year round. 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. 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 12 adds to the functionality of this room. LED lights highlight the trellised ceiling while four ceiling fans help keep you cool.

The sprawling outdoor deck space surrounds a large infinity pool featuring a tanning ledge with room for the lounge chairs 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.

Our goal is for Vivaro - West End 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 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.

There is a charge for your energy usage.  With intelligent and careful use of AC, lights, and fans this charge can 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 $100 to $400 depending on the renters personal choices.

There is a $200 cleaning charge for all groups. This includes light cleaning 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 include transportation from the airport to the house for stays longer than 5 nights. (One car or van per group. We can help arrange additional cars if needed for a charge. There is an additional $10 fee for the driver to wait for you if you choose to 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 to the airport and quote you a price.

No daytime or overnight 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.

Hidden Gem in West End

Our family just returned from a wonderful week at the Vivaro North House! The home is just as pictured and absolutely gorgeous. It was immaculately clean and very well stocked with everything you could possibly need during your stay. Deysi and Gerson continued to keep the home and pool area beautiful while we were there. Matt, the property manager, was quick to answer all of our questions and provide recommendations. We also appreciated the willingness of the owner to speak with us on the phone prior to booking the property and the wealth of information she provided. Marty, the property’s driver, was waiting for our family of five when we arrived and promptly took us to Eldon’s for groceries so we could stock up on necessities for the week. He was also available to drive us to any excursions that weren’t walkable throughout the week. We had the privilege of having Marty’s wife, Blackie, make a delicious dinner for us one evening. Our kids (13, 11, & 8) were begging to stay longer and asking when we could return before we even left! We look forward to our return trip and will most definitely choose a Vivaro property again.

We love this place!

We recently had our second stay at this wonderful home. The location on the West End is perfect as it's a short 10-15 minute walk to town, but far enough away to have total peace and quiet at night. The home itself is beautifully done and kept immaculate. We love having our own pool and the location. The shoreline is volcanic rock, so there are no people walking up and down the shore, which allows great privacy. Vivaro recommends a wonderful couple that comes out and cooks local cuisine and another gentleman comes out and makes pizza, we enjoyed both, what a treat! They can also set up massages at the home. We love our massages and our ladies gave us the best we ever had. If you're objective is total rest and relaxation, this is the place. On our last visit we never turned on the TV or the music, we just listened to the waves break on the shore and the wind rustling the palm trees, best sounds there are! If you think this is something you would enjoy then do it, you won't be disappointed!

Thank you so much for choosing Vivaro Roatan for a second stay in paradise. It sounds like you you a relaxing stay and some excellent meals!!!!! We look forward to hosting you again!!!!!

Amazing Stay!!!

I stayed here with a large group for a week. It was absolutely amazing. Matt and Andrea were fantastic and made sure we had everything we needed the entire stay. If you are looking for a spacious house close to a lot of local spots and activities, look no further!

Glad your group had a fantastic stay at Vivaro and in West End.

Roatan in November

Without question staying at Vivaro in the West End of Roatan is best there is. Modern amenities with wifi, as well as a very spacious and clean living conditions. Lounging in or near the pool while watching the sunset is some of the most relaxing time I have every had.

Wow - thank you so much for the great review. We agree - the sunsets from the deck and pool are amazing!!!!

Highly Recommend

We were delighted at our choice. The house was perfect for our group of 3 couples for a 50th birthday celebration. The easy flight and convenient pick up at the airport with a provisioning stop at a well appointed supermarket made the travel and arrival super easy. The managers were fantastic, spent time at the beginning giving us loads of local knowledge and were quick to answer our questions via whatsapp any time. We loved the set up of the villa, had dinner cooked in-house for us twice, used the pool daily, and found the layout of gathering social areas and little private nooks ideal. The location was an excellent place to be: walking to activities was a real plus. Meeting boats to take us out on day trips (best day, don't miss it: Ruthless Roatan Charters - see the islands by sea, fantastic snorkeling (and we live in the BVI for comparison) and fishing adventures, submarine exploration, a little convenience store, restaurants and bars with fresh seafood and lovely drinks using fresh produce, water taxi, shopping, all within a short walking distance from the villa. The neighboring hotel is a little close to the property and their guests quite loud as some nationalities are but par for the course. We would highly recommend this villa and already have to friends and other family members who love the water, love to dive, enjoy great food, excellent service and love traveling to new locations.

We are so glad you had a great time at our home and in West End. Roatan is a special place and we appreciate your referrals and hope to host you again.

Paradise

My wife and J, along with our dear friends, spent five (5) nights at the North House in August 2018. Our stay could not have been more enjoyable. The home is gorgeous, immaculate, comfortable and perfect in every detail. From the moment we arrived and were greeted at the Ferry from La Ceiba by Marty, to arriving at the home and being greeted by Andrea and Matt, we immediately felt like part of the Roatan family. The home is stunning and well maintained. It has two (2) large master bedrooms with big, clean bathrooms and comfortable beds (there is also a very cool room with tri-level double bunk beds, a loft and another bathroom). There is a gorgeous kitchen and pleasant living room looking out over a perfectly temperatured infinity pool and a huge patio with plenty of seating where we spent countless hours looking out over the water, watching amazing sunsets and listening to music through the home’s Bluetooth Bose sound system. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook a nice meal and live comfortably as if at home (just pick up some food and beverages on the way). The living room has a nice TV, which somehow gets local NY/NNJ stations. There is also two (2) large dining areas (one inside and one on the patio) where we enjoyed a delicious meal cooked by Marty’s wife Blackie (note: hire Blackie early in your visit as we had her come cook our last night and unfortunately missed out on enjoying the abundant leftovers). There is a clean laundry room with a new LG washer and LG dryer as well as a closet full of inflatable floats for the pool. The home is also only a few minute walk from the main drag in the West End where there are very cool bars, restaurants, stores and dive shops. Simply stated, the home could not be more perfect. And we can’t thank Andrea and Matt enough. They could not have been more wonderful and welcoming. They were always available to answer questions or offer suggestions. They are truly great people and terrific ambassadors for Vivaro and Roatan itself. We can’t wait to return.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. We are so pleased when our guest love our dream vacation house and enjoy Roatan as much as we do.

Best Experience in Roatan!!!!

LMS28 Toms River, New Jersey Recently I traveled to Roatan for a wedding and stayed at Vivaro North House.... what a place to stay! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were in heaven. The gorgeous view, the beautiful home with bedding so comfort, the pool overlooked the water was so peaceful! We had the pleasure of Blackie & her husband Marty cooking for us, this was a huge advantage to our stay.... she cooked us the most delicious meal of lobster and chicken. Overall our stay was nothing but amazing! I would highly recommend staying here and already planning my next trip to stay!!

Thank you for your fantastic review. We agree it is heaven to be at the house with the most amazing and peaceful views you can find. We look forward to your return and are very happy Vivaro Roatan was a part of a fantastic Roatan vacation.

Amazing house! Big Sunsets! Close to dive shops!

Outstanding experience in the North House!! Easy walking to dive shops, restaurants, and town. Dave and Tanya have figured out exactly what you need for an excellent Island experience, including the bright orange sunsets dropping perfectly in front of the infinity edge pool. Great big bed, huge shower, and super silent AC in the bedroom leave you feeling pampered every day. For those who don't understand what an amazing location this is--maybe you think you need sand out front--think again! The iron shore is spectacular, there are less insects, and zero foot traffic out front to interrupt your privacy and enjoyment of the natural beauty of the ocean. This is THE place to stay in the West End--hands down. Can’t wait to get back!

What a fantastic description of the location and the beautiful iron shore. We are so pleased you enjoyed the comfortable ensuite ocean view rooms, the views from the pool, and the quick walk to town. Looking forward to hosting you again!!!

Second visit. Still worth it!!!

This is our second trip here staying at Vivaro. This time we had Juniors patio come and cook pizza for everyone. The showe water pressure is better than at home and the AC cool the bedrooms off in less than a minute. The short walk into town makes the location great for getting foot or hit the bar while still being away from all the noise. The kitchen had everything to cook with including basics like salt and oil. I hate rental houses that don’t have something simple It’s clear that the owners care about the house and Mark did a great job setting everything up for us. Just call him and ask what he suggests, it made our trip fun and stress free.

Junior and his delicious pizza are always a highlight of our trips. We are also glad you are enjoying the well provisioned kitchen and quick walk into happening West End. Thanks for choosing Vivaro Roatan.

Gorgeous home, stunning views and peaceful!

The house and amenities are absolutely top notch! The pool is perfection and the sunsets are out of this world! Perfect location near the fantastic neighborhood of West End, which had everything we needed. Very close to the inexpensive water taxis too. We will definitely be back! A great property for exploring Roatán!

When a guest plans to return it inspires all of us Vivaro Roatan to ensure all our future guests feel the same. West End is a special place and a great base on Roatan. That said, we agree, that our self designed home and the infinity edge pool is THE place for the best sunsets on the island.
