Some of the best snorkeling and diving in the island is located about 50 yards off the end of the dock. Starfish, turtles, hundreds of species of tropical fish.
Located in front of spooky channel this location allows guests an exceptional snorkeling and diving experience with access inside and outside the reef.
We chose this location for its location and access to one of the best diving and snorkeling locations on the island, proximity to the airport, grocery store, West End, and West Bay. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space. My place is good for couples, families (with kids), and groups.
Mayan Princess UPDATE:
Our guests have access to the Mayan Princess resort during the weekdays Mondays to Thursdays with no prior reservation made. However, if you would like access during the weekends (Fridays to Sunday), you would need to make a reservation with our Concierge at least 24 hours prior.
The resort has a maximum capacity of admittance, hence, your reservation can either be accepted or rejected.
1. It is pretty quiet there at the house?
Yes, we chose this home because of its close proximity to the airport (circa 7 minutes), grocery store (circa 5 minutes, West End (circa 5 minutes, and West Bay (circa 15 minutes), yet it's large lot and fantastic reef, without all of the tourist/cruise ship crowds of West End and West Bay.
2. Not too busy with people accessing the beach area?
Not at all. Though if you are looking for swimming off the beach it's not ideal. We don't kill the sea grass like they do in West End/ West Bay. This area is ideal if you are looking for great snorkeling and swimming this home is right in front of one of the best snorkel and dive spots on the island. Spooky channel, circa 50 yards off the end of the dock.
3. What's the best way to get around town?
We have the names and numbers of a handful of drivers. Typically we just walk to the road, circa 3 minute walk and catch a taxi. I rarely rent a car when I'm on the island, however, we have plenty of parking if you rent one.
4. We will be mainly there swimming at the house, but we may want to take a day to explore the island a bit. Is it worth getting a car?
I would get a driver and possibly a guide, a number of our guests have worked with Rudolph and the cost is reasonable.
5. Do they have motorcycle rentals?
Yes, but I wouldn't recommend them. Island driving/driving in an unfamiliar area can be dangerous, particularly on a motorcycle.

7. I'm assuming it's great snorkeling right off the dock?
Yes, about 50 yards off the end of the dock is some of the best snorkeling and diving on the island. I typically tether a blow up paddleboard to my ankle and paddle out, one can snorkel for hours, hop up on the board to rest. The paddleboard also makes you more visible. There are areas with spits of stand, starfish etc. like a huge swimming pool.
8. Do we bring our own gear or can we rent some?
While there is gear at the home you can use it comes and goes, I always bring my own.
5. Any suggested airlines to fly into Roatan?
I typically fly Avianca out of Los Angeles through El Salvador, red eye, get in around 9 in the morning and have the cooks come and cook for us the first day, enjoy the reef, and unwind. But there are a number of major airlines that fly directly into Roatan.
