Flowers Bay House

I am much newer to this group than our house is. When I began searching for info on the Island of Roatan and particularly the Flowers Bay area I found this site. We are very excited to be the new owners of this home as of December 1st 2003. The locals are very friendly and the views are spectacular. We have snorkleled a few times off the back steps and will be diving in the future as long as the weather cooperates. We will be visiting as often as possible for now and hope to spend probably half the year there in the future. We have to make some minor repairs to the house and it is pretty close to being ready for guests interested in renting. The home is off the beaten path and it would better suit someone to have a rental car if they were to stay there.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great people, great diving, great food. Still has Island feel, Not overdeveloped
  • Cons:Getting there can be a little tricky at times, When it rains it really rains
  • In a nutshell:In a nutshell? We bought a house there, "nuff said"

    What a cool home!!! Just got back from a Roatan dive trip with ScubaCat, and I am soooo jealous that you have a house there. Gorgeous reefs, diving is the best. Happy bubble trails to you. W

    I am down about quarterly for a week or two. My home is rented more just to keep it alive rather than any type of profit thing.
