About Suzanne Boyce

The original owners Miss Marcia and her husband were on a road trip in the 70's that took them from their Aspen home down through the rugged backroads of Central America, they discovered the lovely island of Roatan.

Captivated by its lush tropical foliage on a hilly terrain and , crystal clear waters – the friendly, generous spirit of the locals – they bought a pristine property down the beach from what was then the only major dive operation on the island – Anthony's Key Resort.

That’s how the history of “Casa Cowee” was written. Miss Marcia passed the property on to her family and last year I visited and fell under it's spell. I am a Canadian from southern Ontario and fell in love with the Isle of Roatan, especially warm and natural Sandy Bay. You are part of a community here not a resort. So the next chapter in the history of Casa Cowee has begun. I know you will fall under it's spell also. Now that I have spent a good portion of a year here I know that Casa Cowee is totally unique. It is so easy to meet people, not just expats but islanders. I now have two guests who are back on the island with their families for extended stays so their kids get exposure to the real world outside of the bubble most of us live in. The kids are loving it with all their new friends, being part of the island community.

Suzanne Boyce purchased this house in 2013

Why Suzanne Boyce chose Roatan

There is no better place on Sandy Bay proper for 180 degree vista of the breathtaking waters and reef and dolphins. You are high off the beach giving you total privacy and the deck is the most popular spot for the sunset happy hours. You also have one acre of lush property surrounding you for privacy and lots of fruit trees such as lemon, lime, bananas, coconut, jack fruit, mango etc. Sandy Bay is a large area. But Casa Cowee is located on a sleepy stretch of sand that includes Anthony's Key, Myoka Lodge, the Blue Bahia and Tranquil Seas mini dive resorts. They are just a couple of minutes walk down the beach and all have restaurants and bars. Then for that special evening The Myoka Lodge on our beach also has a stunning bar and great food for happy hours and views over their infinity pool. So no need to go further than our own little friendly community. But if there is a need to step it up a pace the West End is just a 10 min. taxi ride away. This is a dive hub along with, great restaurants, bars and night clubs. The nice thing about Roatan is that everyone on the island parties together, so a great island experience.

What makes this house unique

What Casa Cowee is – and is not ...

Casa Cowee is not a 'plug and play' unit in a gated community. It is our cherished family home, designed by a renowned local architect who was a dear friend of the original owners – and who put his passion for the island into every facet of Casa Cowee’s signature design.

One of the great beauties of Roatan and the Sandy Bay location is during the 'low' season you enjoy reduced rates but are there during their flowering and fruit season. We have a multitude of fruit trees on our property you can enjoy. I found that the weather is great and the temperature the same year round. Sandy Bay is a residential area so the same action year round. Much unlike the tourist areas of West Bay and West End.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I wanted to let you know what a terrific time we had. Your house is wonderful and Iris and Marvin are awesome … We only made it as far as Punta Gorda going east, but went to The Hole in the Wall (really neat) and did the Pig Roast at Bay Islands Beach Resort. Also enjoyed the Butterfly Garden, Botanical Gardens and Iguana Farm. The snorkeling in Roatan was the BEST I have ever experienced!! Thanks so much for letting us share your paradise.

One of a Kind

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I and 2 daughters (10 & 13) stayed for a week. It was a varied and adventurous experience. We chose Casa Cowee to see more of the real island and culture, rather than a resort, and it provided what we wanted with security and comfort. While it was our 1st visit, I’d be surprised to find another property on the island as unique, exotic and full of beautiful views. It’s an older, spacious island home with lots of character. It was very clean and comfortable, especially the king-size bed. We didn’t spend much time inside, as the amenity that attracted us and proved to be as good as anticipated was the location-the unique home perched above the beach with the long dock. We jumped off the dock and were halfway to the reef. The water is as amazing as it looks in pictures and has abundant sea life. You don’t need to swim to the full reef to see plentiful fish and other creatures. If you’re brave enough to go outside the reef, it gets even better. We swam mostly inside it, but kayaks are easily tied to the dive buoys if you go out between the 2 Keys. It isn’t a completely secluded location and locals do use the dock, but you get the sense of seclusion at times with your height above the beach and gorgeous views. Anthony’s Key is just a short walk. As a family we snorkeled with the dolphins and our youngest also did “trainer for a day”–and I watched her at times from our deck! One of the best features is the expansive deck. Relaxing above the beach whether starting the day with café oro, reading in a hammock, or ending the day with a drink, the deck was the perfect spot for our whole family. There’s always an ocean breeze and you can watch the colors of the water change as the sun moves across the sky. We never needed A/C as the breeze was strong and the fans were more than adequate. The foliage was stunning with flowers everywhere and even fruit, and there’s also fauna: lizards, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, butterflies, tarantula, crabs and more. We walked through the local neighborhood to catch taxis and shop at the local tiendas and saw more of the real Roatan. Many people, transplants and locals, were nice and happy to share info. Jonny, the property manager, was helpful and interesting, as was James, the gardener. Down the beach there are two restaurants we enjoyed (Blue Bahia and Tranquil Seas). We did a dive with Octopus Divers and it was a great experience, as was their divers’ lunch. There’s so much to do nearby. One week isn't long enough.

Vacation of A Lifetime!

  • 5 out of 5
This property was exactly like the description listed on the VRBO website. The photos shown on the website are even better in person. The house was clean and met our all expectations. Suzanne, the owner, was really great about answering all our questions before we traveled.

We spent two weeks at this house. If you can book over a week, I highly recommend it. Our family loved waking up and being able to walk right out on our personal pier and snorkel at some great reef.

We used the Octopus Dive Shop to do scuba dives. It is in walking distance on the beach from the house. My son even did the open water class. Highly recommend their services. There is also a nice restaurant at this location.

We traveled to West Bay for the beautiful white sand beach, Sandy Bay to take a tour of the mangroves, zip lined over the iguana park, swam with dolphins at Anthony's Key and checked out Montego Bay during a cruise ship visit. We also got to listen to a local baptism right below our house on a Sunday morning.

I would HIGHLY recommend this rental to any family or friends.

Owner's Response: Hi Denise, Thanks so much for taking time out of your schedule to post your comments. It is good to hear from a family point of view that your vacation at Casa Cowee surpassed your expectations. I am glad you took the 2 weeks to really have enough time to skim the surface of all that Roatan has to offer. Everyone that works with us will appreciate your comments as they do try hard to please. We hope you join many other families who return on an annual basis and you are always welcome back to Casa Cowee.
All the best

Casa Cowee

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the main house and had coffee on the porch overlooking the beautiful water every morning and each evening we would watch the spectacular sunsets. It is a beautiful property well situated in walking distance to Anthony's Key and Blue Bahia if you don't feel like cooking. The snorkeling right off the property is wonderful so you don't have to schlepp your stuff. James and Johnny were great and very helpful. It was safe and the people were friendly. The owner is very responsive as well and helpful.

Natural Beauty

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, son (who is 21) and I stayed at Casa Cowee for one week the end of March. Our vacation was truly relaxing. The house is surrounded by beautiful lush gardens that are lovingly looked after by the gardener, James. The house has a wrap around deck that provides you with either gorgeous views of the turquoise ocean or the beautiful flowers and trees that flourish in this warm climate. The house itself is a beach house---rustic but quite comfortable. The sitting area is wide and open--most of the time there is a nice breeze blowing off the ocean; you can hear the palm trees rustling in the wind and the waves breaking on the beach---occasionally you can hear the dolphins calling out from Anthony's Key Resort, which is not too far away from the house. While we stayed at the house we became PADI Open Water Certified for diving at the Octopus Dive Center, located at the Blue Bahia Resort, which is a two minute walk down the beach from Casa Cowee. It was super convenient to be able to wake up, eat breakfast and then have a short stroll down the beach for our classes. The reefs are breath taking--I highly recommend doing at least one dive while you are in Roatan. I mustn't forget to mention the sunsets from the deck---they are spectacular---just beautiful! We are already planning our next trip back to Casa Cowee for next year!

Owner's Response: I think you captured Casa Cowee in your wonderful description. It makes me miss it so much. You were wonderful guests to have according to James and Johnny and settled in like the house and Roatan were home. I am happy you enjoyed our sleepy Sandy Bay to the fullest. Roatanian life seems to put everything into perspective. Not everything works like clockwork and you Learn that you don't have to either. I knew your son would love the adventure of it especially the diving and snorkelling. I am glad you are planning on coming back.
All the best

Awesome Place

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Casa Cowee from March 8th to the 15th… great place and magnificent views that would leave you speechless. Johnny the caretaker was great and helped us with everything we needed day or night. Mia the guard dog was great too… friendly and fun. We even got a visit from the owner of the property (Suzanne) who was very nice. I would highly recommend this property if you visit Roatan.

Owner's Response: Hi Orren, Sorry I did not pick your review up. It was super to actually meet you after the long run up to your vacation. We were so happy you enjoyed the location so much. It was hard to be there and not staying at Casa Cowee. I have to agree nothing really compares and you and your party certainly made use of all Roatan had to offer. Hope to see you again in the future. I know Johnny and James loved having you there.
Thanks again
Suzanne

Car: not necessary

Great snorkelling and diving trips with the Octupus and Tranquil Seas dive operations just a 2 min walk down the beach. Stunning sites on the second largest coral reef in the world. There are two single kayaks and snorkelling equipment included in your rental. Some of the best bonefishing in the Caribbean is right down the beach from Casa Cowee and deep sea fishing. Our local fisherman Herbie has agreed to take care of our guests fishing trips. All you have to do is go down to our dock.

There are four restaurants 1-2 minutes walk down the beach and two bars and many delicious local food restaurants. Our property manager can arrange meals to be brought in. There is a full medical clinic in a one minute walk including a recompression chamber. There is a sail boarding business two minutes down the beach.

Casual West End a 10 minute taxi ride away is loaded with restaurants, bars and shops. West Bay is the big beach with the large resorts and condos. Great for a visit if you want to people watch, parasail or just a change from tranquil Sandy Bay.
