The island also offers deep sea fishing, golfing, paddle boarding, and great live music!
Interaction with Guests
We live on site and are available if our guests need us. We can usually be found in the pool around 4pm most days!
It is private and quiet and surrounded by a beautiful jungle with wildlife such as iguanas and the odd flight of the macaws from the Gumbalimba Park nearby.
It is easy to walk to West Bay beach along the beach from Villa Delfin. You can also go out onto our community dock and catch a water taxi going there, or in the other direction to West End. They take about 5 minutes, cost $3/person and are a fun way to see the island!
Other Things to Note
The villa boasts solar back up power ... so when the island's power supply goes out, we can still have our fans, lights and fridges running and watch our movies!
Please respect the other guests staying in our other apartments with regards to noise.... the place is built out of concrete and usually, no one can hear the other guests, but it is always good to be aware and respectful.
Carleen and Marlin picked us up from the airport and we were able to stop by a local grocery store to stock up on anything we needed for our stay. We were blown away by how beautiful and comfortable the apartment was, and with a 10-month old we were able to really relax and have some long-need down time as a family in a beautiful environment.
The distance to the beach was very doable, even with an infant, and Carleen provided a ton of potential contacts for tours, taxis, etc. We were also extremely grateful to our hosts as we felt we had plenty of privacy.
The apartment are very much worth the affordable price. We will definitely come back and have already recommended them to friends and family.
What an amazing trip. Carleen was a terrific host and went above what are expectations were. This was our first time booking a non resort type room. How lucky we were to find the Villa. We are already making plans to go back next year and we will be staying at Carleens Villa. Perfectly located on the island and the room was beautiful. Definitely take advantage of the airport pickup, was a huge plus to get settled in for the week.
Our stay at Villa Delfin was fantastic. Carleen and Marlin are two of the most accommodating, friendly, and helpful hosts we've stayed with. The Villa was spectacular, and located slightly away from the busyness of both West End and West Bay (which was what we were looking for). Would highly recommend staying at Villa Delfin, and if ever find ourselves back in Roatan we'll call it home for a second time.
Carleen was a friendly and helpful host who offered good suggestions for things to do on Roatan. The Orchid Breeze apartment is spacious and comfortable with wonderful views of jungle and the beach down the hill. We enjoyed hearing the different bird calls and we had a hummingbird buzz by several times to check us out on the balcony! Our only issue was that the wifi is on the slow side. It's fine if you just need to check email and post to Facebook, but don't expect to Skype.
Thank you for your review! I am glad to hear that you were comfortable and had a relaxing time. We are hoping for better internet (who doesn't?) … however it is not available to us at this time on this little island as the cable company has not come to our area. However, as soon as faster service is available to us, we will most certainly be getting it!
