About the property

Seahorse suite - 2 XL twin beds, kitchen, en-suite bath, WIFI, BBQ, Pool!!!

Welcome to Seaside Inn - we are veteran owned and operated (USMC!). We purchased this gorgeous property in March of 2014 and we hope to be the best little resort on West Bay Beach.

Seaside Inn is located on a sandy lane within 2 minutes walking from the beach. The location is awesome! The location is awesome! We’re nestled in the jungle away from all the bustle of the beach but close enough to enjoy the restaurants, bars and activities west bay has to offer.

We have a new, beautiful private pool! Our guests can lounge around our pool for a lazy vacation day or enjoy a nice evening cocktail after a hard day of playing on the island. Our pool is not open to the public – it is for seaside inn’s private use :).

A delicious breakfast will be served during high season, november 15, 2014 – april 30, 2015. We have a wonderful daily special gourmet choice, along with a second hearty choice of potatoes/eggs/ham or bacon/toast or a lighter option: yogurt parfait with homemade granola layered with non-fat vanilla yogurt, topped with fresh fruit. There are also two other “grab & go” choices, a very tasty egg/ham/cheese breakfast sandwich or bagel and cream cheese.

Unlike the mega resorts, we are a small private resort which provides our guests with a calm, quiet retreat away from the crowds. We cater to our guests and strive to provide a wonderful stay on this incredible island.

We have 4 rental units available at this time. The gecko is a detached 1 bedroom bungalow with a full kitchen, living area, bedroom and bath - vrbo listing #564852 – and the toucan and macaw are studio suites - vrbo listings #564850/564851 - each with kitchenettes and a private tiled bath. The seahorse is a beautifully tiled studio suite with two xl twin pillow-top beds arranged as bunk beds. It has a smaller footprint than the other suites, with a kitchenette and a tiled bathroom with walk-in shower- vrbo listing #762493. All units have private entrances. Rent one, two, three or four units to accommodate up to 10 adults. For more than one unit, please visit vrbo listing #600543. Please visit the individual vrbo listing #'s to see the rates for individual units and more detailed pictures of each accommodation.

If you’re a diver, there’s a 5-star padi dive center located on the beach at the end of our road. If you love to snorkel then you’ll be glad to know that roatan is surrounded by a fantastic close-in reef just feet from the shore.

West bay beach is stunning, crystal clear turquoise water with a white sandy beach. And it’s all just a short stroll from our property where there are many restaurants, bars and resorts offering activities such as para-sailing or deep sea fishing! At the nearby west bay mall, our guests enjoy the coffee shop and convenience market with delicatessen that also offers a take-out menu!

As you walk down to the beach, the public dock is conveniently located to your right where you can catch a water taxi to the tourist town of west end for more shopping, diving, and of course, more snorkeling! Island tours are available by water and land taxis to whisk you away for a day at the spa, anthony’s key to swim with the dolphins, zip lines, the iguana park, and much, much more!

About Carolyn Belfor

I grew up in upstate New York. My father was a U.S. Forest Service ranger, so we moved to Colorado when I was in high school. I then went on to serve 4 years in the Marine Corps, then 4 years of college in Oregon and Arizona. I graduated from Arizona State in 1985. I move around a lot, taking different jobs as a software engineer. My last job was working for Hewlett-Packard for 15 years. I always have vacationed in the tropics and decided that before I got too old, I'd do something different and live in the Caribbean. After a lot of searching, Roatan was definitely the choice!

Carolyn Belfor purchased this house in 2014

Why Carolyn Belfor chose West Bay

I fell in love with this beautiful home and island after looking at several other Caribbean destinations. The home is in the shaded jungle, just steps from the most beautiful beach on Roatan. West Bay Beach was recently named by the 'Island Magazine' as one of the top ten beaches in the world. The island is small, so you get to know everyone and it develops a sense of family.

Seaside Inn: Seahorse Suite- Private Pool! West Bay Beach!!
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews
Brookings, OR, USA

What a location and gorgeous place - best value too on West Bay!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed the Seahorse suite - it was super comfortable, had great TV and WIFI when I wanted to relax after snorkeling and diving. West Bay divers was 2 minutes away and I could just leave all my gear there and head out. Nice size kitchen area where I made sandwiches and reheated my excellent pizza from Bananarama - they delivered to the house and 2 for 1 on Monday nights! The place was exceptionally clean and well-maintained and the pool was awesome for night swims and sitting around enjoying a rum and coke. I will definitely be back!!!!!

Additional pricing information

Tax Rate 19.0%

The A/C is separately metered. Some guests don't use the AC so this keeps the rates low. If you choose to use the A/C, it costs about $5-$7 per day depending on the length of time used and how cold you keep it. We read the A/C meter upon arrival and the morning of your departure.

For each week of stay, a $100 cash refundable security deposit is required upon arrival (for each unit rented).
