About this listing

In a cruise-ship free area of West Bay, Luz Dulce overlooks the beautiful, quiet, and safe Turtle Crossing development just a short walk from West Bay. Climb up the hill and be rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic Caribbean view; you'll also be in great shape at journey's end. Superb stargazing. Breezes keep the house cool and the bugs away. 3 BR, 2 Ba, upper and lower balconies, full kitchen, A/C, beautiful pool, and a short walk to fantastic snorkeling/diving at West Bay Beach.

The space

The Turtle Crossing neighborhood is one of the loveliest on the island. At the southwest tip of Roatan, and a 10-15 minute walk from West Bay beach, the house features a spectacular view, with two decks where you can eat or relax in hammocks. Inside, a large master bedroom is open to the rest of the home. Two smaller bedrooms on the lower floor feature double beds. On the windy side of the island, Luz Dulce benefits from cooling breezes that keep the bugs away. Because the space is off the beaten path, you will not be overrun by cruise shippers on the days when they are in town, and you can see the huge ships entering and leaving the island harbors.

Guest access

Turtle Crossing features a beautiful pool. We have always found times when we can enjoy it by ourselves, and times when we can socialize with other guests. Down the hill, a walkway leads to a small palapa on the sea, with steps leading down to a natural rock platform. On calm days, you can jump off and snorkel or swim. On rough days, it's a wonderful place to sit and watch the waves. Taxis come here, as does a fruit and vegetable truck and a fish seller. You can also take the shortcut through the woods and be at West Bay beach in about 12 minutes. Walking in the other direction is the delightful Kismet bar/restaurant at the Meridian, right on the water. A local phone is available pre-programmed with numbers that may come in handy.

Interaction with guests

There is a book of tips and advice that you will find when you reach the island. We are also happy to provide additional tips based on our many trips to the island. If something is not covered, we have a full-time manager available to you, and we can answer you through this website as well.

Other things to note

Luz Dulce sits above the parking lot, and it is a fairly steep climb to the house. Because of this, we do not recommend bringing very young children, though we think the house is excellent for families with children older than 6-8 (you know your kids better than we do). Everyone always comments that the view makes the climb completely worthwhile; we also enjoy that we are always in better shape when we leave than when we arrived. While we do have A/C, we use it only on the hottest days due to the wonderful breezes. Our Internet connection is 1G. If you would like to bring your own Roku box, Netflix works well here, although some of the offerings are different, and it's unusual to be able to get English subtitles.
Short term (1-2 weeks) rentals are given an allowance for utilities which usually covers conservative usage (*excluding AC usage). No allowance on Long term rentals. For any additional usage, the Guests will be charged based on actual meter readings and service company daily rates. To be paid in cash at departure.

The vacation at Luz Dulce was so great I almost didn't want to write a good detailed review, because Iwant this place to stay as my secret paradise home. But what the hell, Steven deserves a good detailed review. My family stayed at Luz Dulce for relaxing vacation of lifetime. The friendly manager Christine and Bonny were always there for us when we needed help. The house is located in quiet residential area where yards and gardens are perfectly manicured yet you can spot cute island animals all the time. We were greeted by hummingbirds everyday. The lizards and iguanas you see at Turtle Crossing yards are way cuter than the ones you see at the depressing iguana farm. West Bay is walkable distance. Beautiful clean community pool. It's much cleaner than the one in San Pedro Sula's luxury hotel. The dock in front of the house is the perfect spot for morning meditation and exercise. Sea breeze and hardcore yard maintenence prevented mosquito problems. The view from the deck is amazing. I will stay there again for next Roatan trip, for sure. Thank you Steve, Christine, and Bonny!

I can not stress how much of a perfect house Steve has, and how easy he and his property manger Christine were to deal with. Christine organized the airport transfer with a stop at the grocery store which was very handy. The house is on the windy side of the west end so there is a constant breeze that we loved, it kept the house cool, we never needed to run the AC. The house had *everything* we needed down to ice packs and a cooler, a blender, spices, oil. The internet worked fine and was reliable, i was able to work remotely and take voip calls without trouble. We could walk to the west bay hotels in 15 mins. The pool was great, the neighborhood felt super safe and quiet we walked home in the dark all the time. The house has *plenty* of room for a family of 6. The hammocks on the top and bottom decks were prefect for a nap any time of the day or night. oh the VIEW is a million dollar view no joke, never got tired of it. If i was coming back to Roatan, i would stay here for sure.
