About the property

400sq ft Studio, 2 Minute Walk to The Beach

Accessible by car, water taxi, or a 15 minute walk on the beach from West End or West Bay Beach, Casa Pasola is 70 meters from clean & uncrowded Turtle Beach. There, you'll find great snorkeling & swimming steps from shore. There are dive shops aplenty in West End & West Bay.

The studio is on the 2nd floor, with a semi-private, screened-in porch overlooking a quaint path leading to the beach. You'll see hummingbirds & native flora like banana trees, hibiscus, orchids, & palms on your short walk to the ocean.

Amenities include full kitchen with new appliances, hot water shower, ceiling fans & air conditioning, flat screen TV, WiFi. Spacious porch for outdoor dining & relaxing.

We are close to restaurants, shopping, animal encounters, & zip line parks. Transportation available on request.

Half our neighbors live here full time, so prepare to live "La Vida Local"!

About Jennifer Wong

We are both escapees from the rat race, now "living the dream" in a house by the sea. The house was completed in 2016, and we're ready to share the dream with you!

Jennifer Wong purchased this studio in 2015

Why Jennifer Wong chose West Bay

Tommy has been on the island since 2010, and Jen since 2014. We came to Roatan on vacation, and decided to stay because it was user-friendly, but not over-commercialized. The Turtle Beach area is a gem on this part of the island, because it is accessible to the hustle & bustle of West End & West Bay, but maintains its island charm. We also have preferred transport services that we use for day or night time rides. Or you can hop in the pickup with us for a ride into town!

What makes this studio unique

The house is situated on a hill, and the breeze coming down is almost always cool. Most nights, we don't even use the air conditioner because the evenings are comfortable. Lack of commercial businesses in our village means lots of stars at night.

A flock of scarlet macaws live in Gumbalimba Park & regularly stop at Turtle Beach. How often can you say, "Look, the macaws are flying overhead!". You'll be saying that at least once or twice a day when you stay with us.

Living by a coral reef that's 2nd to Australia's has its perks. Roatan is well-known for its diving, but if you would rather stay "close to shore" and close to the surface, there is AMAZING snorkeling as you walk into the water at Turtle Beach - grouper, tuna, sea stars, lobster, octopus, eels - too many to name.

Nicely finished apartment in great neighborhood area (Turtle Beach)

  • 5 of 5

Tommy and Jen were excellent hosts and made us feel at home in their well appointed unit. Fans kept us cool ( air available but not needed) and screened in porch gave a nice place to relax. We felt very secure and area residents very friendly and open. Perfectly located between West Bay and West End, walking distance to both (during the day) water taxi's available from dock, making transport easy. Snorkeling off beach was great. Would recommend to all

Funin the Roatan Jungle, yet close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Jennifer and Tommy's place, and had a wonderful time! Jennifer and Tommy were great hosts, checking in with us frequently to make sure that we had everything we needed. We really enjoyed getting out on the scooter whenever we wanted to explore different areas of the island. The beach was just a short 5 minute walk down a path with beautiful foliage and flowers. The beach was clean with plenty of beach chairs and a great dock to enjoy watching the sunsets on a hammock or swinging chair. There was pretty good snorkeling right off the beach, or you could take a kayak out to the reef for much more! We enjoyed having the kitchen with utensils, plates and pot to make most of our own meals and enjoy them on the covered deck. We also enjoyed reading in the hammocks on the deck and loved the island breezes. We loved the jungle noises we woke to every morning, and then the birds were very talkative again each evening. We saw (and heard) the macaws fly over a couple of times each day. One tip we received was for Monday night lobster specials at Beachers in West Bay - 3 lobster tails for $18. We really liked the convenient location to both West End and West Bay.

Perfect Location/Great Hosts

  • 4 of 5

Quiet location 4 minutes from beautiful beach. Walking distance to both West Bay and West End. Snorkeling right off beach. Apartment well appointed and cozy. Jen and Tommy great hosts very helpful. Scooter worked grand and handy to have. Would also recommend Gumbalina Park and their zip line. Would certainly stay here again. Maybe next year
