Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Roatan
Uniquely green gated resort community & miles of secluded beach
For a great price you can stay where those who have unlimited choices and funds choose to stay. This very uniquely spacious and green resort like development is a destination for those who wish to experience all the beauty of the Western Caribbean.
The South Seas flavor of Palmetto Bay Plantation’s Balinese architecture adds unobtrusive artistry to the coastline it works to protect. Pristine coral reef just off shore from miles of secluded white sand beach is protected behind the gated road to the 150+ acres of meadows and gardens spaciously surrounding vacation and residential homes. Designers of the plantation have preserved the natural beauty of the bay while providing very inviting and comfortable accommodations and amenities.
The plantation is just a short boat ride within the reef from a public golf course, The Black Pearl. Additionally, the plantation hosts a National Geographic PADI dive operator, dock, pool, and restaurant along with outdoor and personal services.
The exotic, architecturally designed Balinese homes are cool and quiet with wood floors that are like silk. The 9 foot louvered and screened sliders let in the tropical breezes, scents of frangipani, chirps of geckos at night and the songs of birds during the day.
The drive to Palmetto is along the coast before getting to the more populated part of the island along the north shore. There is no need to compete with the cruise ship traffic on beaches or along mountain ridge line roads or drive through highly populated areas along narrow twisty roads.

About The Owner
To live our dream, my husband, son and I moved to Roatan from Colorado Springs where I voluntarily left a career as a IT Project Manager. Scott was part owner in a real estate business in the Black Forest and Andrew was struggling with high school at Pine Creek. Our decision to move and home school Andrew had lasting positive effects on our son’s future. We used a tried and true home school program and heavily supplemented it with courses from The Teaching Company. After high school graduation, Andrew became a Dive Master. He received a full scholarship to undergraduate studies and is now working towards a master’s degree. I developed Linda Kay's Bodyguard, a botanical bug repellent promoted by the marine park. Scott continued with real estate. We have moved back to the US so we may continue to enjoy the company of our son. We settled in the Low Country of South Carolina and Andrew is at SCAD. We have a very competent and carrying group of people there on Roatan who see to the needs of those who visit. You may see the team on the Tropical Island Villa web site.
The Owner purchased this house in 2001
Why The Owner chose Roatan
We chose Palmetto Bay Plantation because of the unique qualities of the development and homes. We very much liked the open space, serenity, beauty and miles of vacant beach. It is a home that has been easy and inexpensive to maintain. We enjoy our friendships with the people from the village nearby.
What makes this house unique
It is wonderful to go to sleep to the sounds of geckos surrounded by silence and cool tropical air, and wake to the sounds of birds. It is unimaginably peaceful and restful. I love the long walks on the beach where all I see is sky, water, trees, sand, birds and maybe a boat. I love seeing healthy, growing coral and fish so numerous they are like liquid. I know what and who to expect so that it is always refreshing to rekindle old friendships and make new ones.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks! I wanted to drop you a note and thank you for your beautiful home to spend our vacation in. We enjoyed every minute (even the sand flees!) It was a pleasure to stay in such a nice place. Everything was well taken care of and there was an obvious attention to detail.
We are safely back home and actually have arrived back to Spring! 60 degrees!
Thanks again for the use of your home! We hope to return to Roatan in the future.
