Unquestionably the highest end resort on Roatan, Pristine Bay continues to develop and evolve. Located about mid-island, on Roatan's northern shore with beautiful sunset views over the Caribbean, this massive, three-phase project is remarkable not only for its signature Black Pearl golf course, but also for its continuity and momentum. Seemingly immune to the ebb and flow of the global economy, Pristine Bay development simply, impressively marches on.

It's a bird. It's a plane. It's an RC Drone with a Hero Pro HD Camera attached.
I had the pleasure this past Saturday of working with a young man from the Honduran mainland named Jose Servillon who shoots aerial footage for a variety of industries using an industrial strength RC helicopter.

The Caribbean of Ernest Hemingway is gone.
Heck, even the Caribbean of Jimmy Buffet is hard to find.
In a word, us. We happened. We came, we saw and we conquered. With our "conveniences", our vices and our money, we found paradise and very quickly started changing it. To be fair, we didn't try to or even necessarily want to, but we did.

Over our first year as the proud owners of a Roatan Vacation rental, Mary and I have received more than 1,000 inquiries. As a result, we spend a fair bit of time answering questions from prospective guests. So we thought it might be helpful to post answers to the most common of these questions.

When Mary and I purchased our Roatan vacation rental home in 2012, we knew we were going to have to put some money into it. It was clear from the home inspection that the villa had been very heavily used over the previous few years and needed just a little TLC (and a lot of upgrades, updates and improvements). What follows are the steps we took to give Coral Vista 1 an Extreme Makeover.

A Pristine Bay Roatan Resort Vacation is Not For You If...
1. You Want Crowds
Pristine Bay Roatan Resort is beautiful... and new... and not quite finished. As a result, there aren't a ton of people there... yet. So, if you want to enjoy a week of peace and solitude while living in luxurious surroundings, check it out. If, on the other hand, you enjoy meeting new people sitting on the beach side by side in a long row of beach chairs, Pristine Bay may not be for you.

We dream about them. We plan them, and then we anticipate them. We take them, and when we return from them, nine times out of ten, we feel like we need a vacation from our vacation.

A West Bay Roatan Vacation Rental is Not For You If...
1. You Want Total Peace and Quiet
West Bay is a classic Caribbean strip of beach. Turquoise waters. Sugar-white sand. Soothing trade winds...
... and then there is the armada of beach chairs, hundreds of people competing for space at the pool or on the beach, lines for food, etc.

Well... you did it!
You grew up, got a job, built a career, got married, had kids, raised a family, got them off into the world successfully, they had kids and here you are.
It's time for a vacation - a vacation together!

We get a lot of questions from prospective guests about renting our villas - most are of the basic variety: how much? is it available? how many beds? I call these questions "basic" because the answers are easy. We look up a date, check the rates, describe how the bedrooms are set up, and that usually does the job. But every now and then, we get questions that take a little more work to answer like, "When's the best time to come?", and "How much in advance do I need to book a particular week?".
