Vivaro Oceanfront is a modern 7,000 square foot luxury estate situated on Roatan’s beautiful west side.  West End's premier luxury rental is in an ideal location just minutes from Half Moon Bay.  Six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, two large great rooms with Chef's kitchens and spacious decks sit on the stunning iron shore, where the waves of the Carribean Sea lap up onto the shore. The crystal-clear cerulean waters teem with life and offer superb snorkeling through the Meso-American reef below, while the above horizon offers extravagant sunsets night after night.  You’ll experience ecstasy as you sit on one of two sprawling decks next to two infinity pools and soak in this paradise.  There's simply nothing more luxurious than a home feet from the ocean in paradise to call all your own!

Vivaro - Oceanfront is TRULY a few minute flat walk into the heart of West End - no steep hills (for example, Sunset Villas), no busy street full of cruise shippers no noise pollution from the bars of West End (Coral Vista homes)  No rental car needed.  The decks and pools are ACTUALLY just feet from the ocean with the most amazing sunsets you have ever seen.

This six bedroom oceanfront estate was designed specifically for larger groups to experience a fantastic vacation together while at the same time having lots of space for relaxation. The location near all the action means those who want to dive and enjoy sunset at a local bar will be just happy as those in the group who prefer leisurely days on the deck and floating in the pool just feet from the ocean.

The only private rental in West End and West Bay with two large private pools directly on the ocean, back up power, wifi, cable TV, luxury amenities, and a dedicated manager. We have skimped on nothing so you can have a fantastic island paradise vacation.

Vivaro - Oceanfront sits on a gated 3/4 acre piece of property in the most peaceful and private area of West End.  Built right on the iron shore - beautiful fossilized coral, not lava or rocks - 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.

The highlight of the property is the two large infinity edge pools 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 these pools make them 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 rooms are extremely spacious with large accordion doors that open onto the deck.  A large L-shaped couch and dining table that seats at least 12 adds to the functionality of each great room. LED lights highlight the trellised ceiling while six ceiling fans help keep you cool.  The sprawling outdoor deck space surrounds the 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.

The chef's kitchen features white stone counter tops and dark Honduran wood cabinets. The LG gas cooktop is on a substantial island with seating for six. All appliances are top of the line LG. The double door refrigerator has UV filtered water and an ice maker. The kitchen has been meticulously outfitted with high quality knives, cookware, dishes, silverware, etc.

There are 2 master suites - one upstairs and one downstairs in each house. Each master suites faces the ocean and 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 and sixth bedrooms are large rooms with a loft - perfect for a couple, children or as a family room. These rooms has 24 feet high ceilings. South House features a king bed and a custom triple bunk bed handmade of Honduran hardwood with a full bed on the bottom topped with 2 twin beds. North House features a triple double bunk bed: 2 doubles topped by 4 twins. The large loft area in each house includes a twin trundle bed and lots of pillows to relax or nap. Each room has a bathroom with a rainfall shower and a separate toilet. Kids or adults will love the comfort and spaciousness of this room.

Our goal is for Vivaro - Oceanfront 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 propane 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 may go down during power outages.

There is a charge for your energy usage. We will charge the most recent kilowatt hour charge from our bill for your group's electricity 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 $200 to $800 depending on the renters personal choices.

There is a $400 cleaning charge for all groups. This includes light cleaning at least 1 time 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 of 5 nights or longer. (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 evening 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.

Vivaro Roatan Perfection

Could be our best vacation ever. The Vivaro Oceanfront house is magnificent. It's got everything, beach, pool, outdoor living, great kitchen, 4 master suites and a bunkroom for all the kids. We had 14 in our group. Matt and his team did a wonderful job taking care of us. Roatan was the adventure we were looking for, can't wait to go back!

Thanks for choosing Vivaro Roatan. We look forward to hosting you again.

Amazing

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! - Karaoke Ben

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

Our stay at Vivaro on Roatan. Amazing!

Our stay at Vivaro was absolutely amazing. The 2 houses were the nicest in the area. Great pools, bedrooms and bathrooms modern and very clean. Matt and his wife were great hosts. Other than the one small problem with one of the refrigerators there we no issue. Oh, and they brought in a replacement frig right away. They was more than what they needed to do. I will stay at Vivaro on future trips, and I will recommend Vivaro to all me friends.

Thanks for the five star review. We are happy you had a great time and look forward to your future visit. Thanks also for the recommending our homes to other people. Keeping the homes in pristine condition on a tiny island is a challenge - we have worked hard to be able to respond quickly to any issue that might arise so all our guests have a great stay in paradise.

Fabulous time on Roatan

The house was awesome! Short walk to beach, bars and shops. The 2 pools made very easy to stay at the house all day. The hosts were amazing. I will recommend Vivaro to all my friends. I will be returning to Roatan someday and Vivaro will be a place I check to is if available.

Thank you for your review. We also have days where it is hard to leave the house and the pool - even though we know our favorite bars and restaurants are a few minutes away.

A stunning spot within West End

I had the wonderful opportunity to stay in both the south house and north house- they are basically the same luxurious home with a slightly different layout. The modern features in each will make you want to move in immediately!! Pictures do not do this place justice! Inside is spacious, bedrooms equipped with AC, (remaining parts of the house with fans), beds are very comfortable, dark curtains to assure for best sleep, awesome showers, towels, everything was immaculate, wifi, tv, great sound system, stainless steal kitchen appliances- big island perfect for preparing food, granite countertops, huge refrigerator with fresh water and ice cubes, microwave, toaster, blender for making drinks! washer and dryer included. All of the amenities provide the luxury of your own home while vacationing on a beautiful island. outside there is an amazing patio with plenty of outdoor furniture- 4 reclining chase lounge chairs, 2 outdoor sofas, and a lovely round patio chair perfect for relaxing or reading a book. There is a pergola forming a shaded sitting area with a table and 6 chairs underneath where we enjoyed lunch many times. Captivating infinity pool with different depths- perfect for children and adults alike and a breathtaking view of the iron shore. You can even put the lounge chairs in the most shallow part of the pool!! Beautiful design! Convenience was key- close to the center of town, grocery stores, amazing restaurants, dive shops, bars and cute places to buy souvenirs including the rusty fish (everything made on the island from recycled materials which supports local families) I went to the dive shop almost every morning as I got certified at “Sun Divers” and the walk was just a quick 5 minutes from Vivaro- it was so easily accessible and I felt very safe walking there. Simply inquire for special events and contests- can be found on a facebook page- fundraiser at “bananarama” just a quick boat taxi from half moon bay— got the opportunity to interact with locals and learn about the marine park. everyone was friendly and informative. food tasting— various restaurants from the island came together and had a cook off. Got to try unique and delicious foods such as stuffed jalapeños from “Gingers”, bitter balls, coconut shrimp, tacos and more!! All of the the food I tried on the island was to-die-for! Delicious fresh fruit from a little stand in the middle of town. Taco Tuesday at “Off the Hook”, amazing Italian food at “Pazzo”, FRESH bakery!!

Incredible Group Trip!

This was our second year in a row staying at Vivaro, and it did not disappoint. Last year it was just our family of four, this year, we rented both the North and South houses and had a group of 8 adults and 10 kids. The trip couldn't have gone any better. There was plenty of space for all 18 of us. We never felt like we were stepping on each others toes and the kids had a blast switching rooms and beds every night. We always had plenty of hot water for all of us to shower and never had a problem finding a spot in one of the pools to relax. The houses could not be set up more perfectly for large groups. Both houses are exactly as pictured. Well stocked with everything you need and extremely clean and well maintained. We are extremely picky when it comes to cleanliness, and the cleaning staff for the houses are fantastic. I never thought twice about using anything. Their property manager was also extremely helpful. He set up dinner reservations and excursions, as well as transportation anywhere we needed to go. He knows the island extremely well and can suggests things for the group to do as well. He recommended having a chef come in and make homemade pizza for the entire group one night, and it was some of the best pizza we've ever had. Roatan itself has become one of our favorite vacation spots. We have traveled to numerous different places and there is no place quite like West End in Roatan. The people are extremely friendly, the food is amazing, and everything is very reasonably priced. There are lots of things to do as well as places to sit and relax on the beach. We never felt like tourists and loved being immersed in the local culture and way of life. I would highly recommend Vivaro for a family or a big group vacation. Either way, it will be a fantastic trip.

We are so glad you enjoyed our home and Roatan as much this year as last. We agree that Roatan is a special place with something for everyone and we love when our guests are able to experience this. We designed Vivaro for our families and friends so everyone would have plenty of space when needed but also have great spaces to enjoy each other company in. Thanks for choosing Vivaro.

Beautiful Oceanfront Home

We stayed with a large family group and loved it! We rented the "North House" and "South House" at the same time. The location is close walking to restaurants and shops in West End. The home's are well cared for and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Mark went out of his way to make sure we had the best experience possible. I would absolutely recommend this location.

Amazing Sunset

Great family get away. Close enough to walk into West End for food, drinks and all activities. The location is ideal for a family looking to be able to walk rather than renting a car. The property/House is very private and immaculately maintained. We spent most of our time lounging around the infinity Pool looking over the Iron Coast. The ocean breezy was enjoyable with having the accordion doors open the all the time. Each bed room has its own air conditioner when the ocean breezy isn't enough. The house is equipped with everything you would have at home. When we return to Roatan on our yearly trip we will defiantly be staying at Vivaro.

Wonderful Spring Break with friends and family

From the moment you walk in the front door you will never want to leave. We stayed in the south house and everything was perfect from the view to the pool. The photos online don't do it justice. The kitchen is nicer than mine at home and the pots were super high end. Some basic condiments were provided and there was both enough plates and utensils for our whole group to eat. It's obvious the owners like wine as there are a ton of wine glasses. The stereo was easy to sync to my phone to play music and the tv had many English channels to watch. The internet connection was good enough to watch movies on Netflix. It was about a 5 minute walk to Sundowners bar the the street is lighted for the walk back at night. We always felt safe and had no issues with the People in other places around. Sitting in the pool watching the sunset was the highlight of the day. It sets out over the reef and the sky lights up a beautiful orange. This is a place I would come back to. I found them on their Vivaro Roatan site and working with the owners to get the trip booked was simple. We had great help setting up zip line tours and other trips. Go visit the monkeys and sloths, our son absolutely loved giving them hugs.

Wonderful family vacation in a beautiful home!!!

We had a fantastic time in Roatan and at Vivaro - West End. We had so much space to hang out, cook, sleep, and swim for our group. The location is so much better than we understood when we booked. Directly on the water and a quick walk into West End town. The views and sunsets were unforgettable every day.
