Overview

About the property

One Queen Bed, Full Bath, Kitchenette, Quiet Neighbourhood, Many FREE Extras!

* NOTE - Our rate is based on $USD 90.00 per night, $USD 550.00 per week, $USD 1970.00 per month. *

* NOTE - our other suite, Casa Canuck Suite A (454273), has a smaller sunnier deck and fewer windows. *

Casa Canuck has an amazing combination of proximity, seclusion and complimentary conveniences that other rentals just don't have! Located in West End, on the water at Mangrove Bight, you have only a short walk to the lively center of West End, or to some of the best snorkeling in the world at Half Moon Bay. At home, you can unwind in the quiet and peaceful setting of a tropical oasis, watching the hummingbirds, butterflies, geckos, and other wildlife.

You will be able to relax in your suite or on your private deck overlooking the mangroves and jungle greenery. You can also enjoy direct water access or an evening under the stars on Mangrove Bight from our private dock, and even arrange to be picked up right from the dock for many water activities.

A one-minute walk gets you onto the newly paved West End road where you can find the many dive shops, fishing charters, dining options, shops and nightlife that unique West End offers. We are also ideally located for people looking for accomodations while completing dive courses. Check out EcoDivers and Coconut Tree Divers, both within 2 blocks of home.

We live upstairs full-time, so we are close by if you need anything, but we fully respect our guests' privacy. We are regular friendly people and would also enjoy sharing a visit and a beverage on the dock if you like!

During our time living here, we have learned about good restaurants, things to do, places to go and people that can help you with your Roatan vacation 'bucket list'. Let us know what you are interested in, and we will do our best to get you in contact with the right people.

Each of our two suites has a queen bed, full bath, private east-side deck, shared west-side deck, ceiling fans, flat-screen cable TV, internet, 2-burner cooktop, microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, dishes, water dispenser and drinking water, bistro table and chairs and AC. There is a nice hammock and two zero-G recliner lawn chairs on your private deck, and night security on the property. We also have a propane BBQ/grill for guest use.

Our guests' comfort and relaxation is our main priority! We want your stay to be restful and easy, so we have thought of the little conveniences for you. Coffee? Salt and Pepper? Cold beverages in the fridge when you arrive? We thought of that! Flashlight? Umbrellas? Clothesline? We thought of that, too. Liquid Tide for hand washables? Hangers? Laundry basket? You bet. Scissors? Baggies? Can opener? Yes, even those! Wine glasses? Corkscrew? Candles? Definitely. There is an extra rod in the shower for hanging bathing suits, etc, free snorkel gear for you to borrow, free access to kayaks, and a local cell phone for you to use while you are here. Personal laundry can be arranged for a fee, and guests staying more than 12 days receive complimentary weekly maid service. 'Yes, we thought of that!' And if we didn't, please let us know.

AIRPORT / FERRY PICKUP: Let us know your arrival details and we will be at the airport or ferry to pick you up. We include a cold beer or soda or water (let us know your preference), a stop at the supermarket if you wish, and a comfortable short ride to Casa Canuck. Pickup and return is FREE for all of our guests.

We have a generator and live on-site, so you will still have a working water system and fridge (once we start the generator) if the power goes out.

Please, no smoking in or near the building. We love animals, but guests must not bring pets. We love children, too, but our suites are not suitable for youngsters. And if you enjoy other music besides the birds, the breeze, the boats and the seas, we ask that you keep your volume low. (Unless it is Salsa music, in which case you just need to invite us to the party!)

Getting Here - Often you will have no other choice, but try to avoid arriving or departing between 10 am and 2:00 pm on Saturdays. Our little airport is almost beyond capacity during those times and lines are long. We have found better schedules (and prices) by travelling to San Pedro Sula (SAP) and then using CM Airlines to hop from there to Roatan. CM is very good (Sosa is not nearly as good, FYI).

About Joan Cooke and Stan Wall

We are from Northern Alberta, Canada and have four sons from age 21 to 29. Joan is a teacher, and Stan is 'Stan the Duct Man' - our HVAC and plumbing company in Northern Alberta.

Joan Cooke and Stan Wall purchased this studio in 2012

Why Joan Cooke and Stan Wall chose West End

In April of 2011, we came to Roatan for a single day during a cruise. There was just something about this beautiful little island that drew us back, and in April of 2012 we came for a week vacation, looked at a few places with a realtor 'just for fun', and somehow ended up owning this fantastic house in this amazing location. We moved here to our main house to stay in July of 2013, and will continue renting our studios.

What makes this studio unique

The two best feature of our studios are the location and our free amenities! We are a very short walk from the best diving and snorkeling in the world, minutes from famous West End, but in a very quiet and private corner of the neighborhood. We have a mangrove and a dock on the east side of our yard, jungle to the south, a banana-filled yard to the west, and wonderful neighbors to the north. And 'We thought of that!' is how we describe our free extras.

The only place I'll stay on Roatan!

  • 5 of 5

The plane hasn't even taken off yet and I'm already dreaming of my next trip to Roatan. It's not even a question as to where I would stay again. Joan was welcoming from the minute we saw her at the airport. Thank you so much for taking us with you to snorkel! Saturday morning was our best day out thanks to you. I hope so many extra touches make the stay that much better. I hope next time we can meet Stan as well!

We love it here!

  • 5 of 5

Again our stay at Casa Canuck was excellent! This location is perfect. You do not have to rent a car to get anywhere. It's only a five minute nice walk to the restaurants and bars, or a fun water taxi ride to West Bay. I cannot say enough about the owners of Casa Canuck. Miss Joan picked us up and took us to the grocery, then made sure we had everything we needed while we were there. I almost cried when I had to leave her at the airport. Such a sweet lady! Half Moon Bay is gorgeous and I had wonderful snorkeling adventures there. The room is clean, comfortable, pretty, and quiet. We love sitting on the back deck watching the hummingbirds and the little Watusa family. We also loved sitting on the dock enjoying the quiet and looking at the water. This is our favorite place to be! Cant wait to go back!

Great Place To Stay In West End

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Canuck. It was clean and comfortable and an easy walk to everything. Joan was a wonderful host. We really appreciated her personal touches from airport transportation to letting

us snorkel with her. Don't hesitate to book this property. You'll be glad you did.

Snorkelers Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Casa Canuck was the perfect choice for us. Stan and Joan were great hosts, which started with the airport pickup and a stop at the grocers. The suite had everything we needed. We went to Roatan to have a paddling and snorkeling vacation and that’s what we did for 2 weeks. With access to their kayaks and the close proximity to West End, there were many snorkeling options, restaurants and friendly people. The reef is beautiful with huge coral heads, a large variety of fish and seeing a few sea turtles and eagle rays topped it off. Stan and Joan were always available for guidance. Our stay was fantastic and we hope to return. Thank You Joan and Stan!

Excellent week friendly helpful great location perfect for a couple

  • 5 of 5

Stan and Joan were excellent hosts, from the pick up and drop off at airport to our snorkelling trip with them. Great recommendations. Suite was clean and exactly as advertised with a necessities. Half moon bay, a five minute walk, is a perfect setting for snorkelling, restaurants both formal and street vendors. We will be back to roatan, hopefully soon. We highly recommend casa Canuck. Thank you Stan and Joan!
