Nestled into verdant hills framed by a one of the most spectacular white sand beaches of the Bay Islands is Palmetto Bay. This private paradise overlooks the turquoise waters of Turtling Bay with exquisite coral reefs gently announced by the sound of the sea. The Plantation consists of 110 acres where breadfruit, mangoes, cashew and citrus trees, the white sand beach, warm waters, hundreds of species of carnival colored fish, snorkeling and world-renowned diving are yours.
Beachfront single-family home A2 is the largest model at 1850 sq. ft. including covered decks. It offers 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with lots of storage within the home. It is very tropical in design and architecturally pleasing to the eye. It has vaulted ceilings and large doors that open up connecting indoor and outdoor living areas and the entire deck is screened. The home was originally built in 1998 but went through a floor to ceiling renovation in 2015. Everything within the home is top quality. Nothing is more than 4 years old (washer, dryer, fridge, a/c) and other things are just 1 year old (e.g., dishwasher, range, hot water heater, linens). The owners keep everything in perfect condition. The home is powered by a full solar system providing clean power to protect electronics and keep energy costs to a minimum. All indoor fans are DC (low power consumption) All lighting is LED or compact fluorescent. The addition of skylights and gable glazing make for a very bright living space with a completely open floorplan. All cabinets, windows, doors and floors are constructed from local Honduran hardwood. There are additional mood lighting details to enhance the homes appeal at night and the home is complemented with a Sonos sound system.
Palmetto Bay Plantation offers worry free home ownership. They offer property management and a comprehensive rental program for those owners who wish to rent their home while not using it personally. The management company looks after maintenance of the common areas and can offer assistance with repairs and maintenance of your home. Guest services for your tenants can include housekeeping if desired.
The entrance to Palmetto Bay is a pleasant 15 minute drive (paved road) from the Roatan International Airport with breath taking views of the island coastline as you wind through the tropical trees that cover the hillsides descending to the beach. Thirty-five acres of the property's tropical forest are preserved for hiking trails, bird sanctuaries, and gardens. Although it feels secluded, Palmetto Bay is conveniently located with easy access to French Harbour and Sandy Bay. In Palmetto Bay you will not find conference centers, gyms, architecture astray from a Caribbean ambiance, crowded lots, or hundreds of hotel rooms to detract from the natural beauty and atmosphere of old Roatan. Cycling the garden pathways, walking from your villa through the gardens to the beach, reclining in a hammock in the beach preserve, diving the fantastic reef, snorkeling a few feet off shore or spotting parrots in the bird preserve are the order of the day.
