“Everything You Need”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This house covers everything you could possibly need. To start, the booking process was simple. I emailed Liz and Mark multiple times during the 9 months between when i booked this property and when we actually stayed and was always promptly responded to. We consisted of a group of twelve, 4 of which where children from 2-9 years old. There was ample space for all of our families to have our own space but were able to come together during meals and pool time etc. The pictures of this place are beautiful but still does not give it the justice it deserves. I commented many times that when something came to mind that was needed it was always there, from paper towels to outlets and fans being exactly where you'd think "hey it would be nice having a fan in the bar by the pool"
Our group came in at different times and they were able to accommodate getting all of us to the house without any worries or hassles.
The caretaker Will was always available when needed but in no way a nuisance. I noticed a few times turning on lights in the evening and if a bulb was out Will was changing it.
We worked with Mark to plan a few of the extra things offered through Roatan Vacation Rentals. The first was an excursion to Maya Key. This was a great time for the entire group. We arrived on the little island from the ferry sent by mark. At first there was a group there from the cruise ship but by 11am they left and our group of twelve had the entire island to ourselves which included a beach area with snorkeling, a small animal exhibit of different animals that had been injured or abandoned,Mayan artifact exhibit, and lunch. It was wonderful because we had the opportunity to just wonder for hours looking at whatever we wanted.
The other thing Mark arranged was for Susan to come to Casa de Admiranda and cook a meal for us. This is a must!!!! She made us the most delightful meal of shrimp and grouper with lots of sides, dessert, and finished by cleaning it all up for $26 a person. Priceless.
The house itself had all the linens, it had a few beach towels if we wished to use them, sample toiletries, coffee makers in all areas including the Casitas and the kitchens were very well stocked with all the basics like salt and pepper etc. The beach and dock were very well maintained but there was sea grass.
The only negative that came about during the entire stay was that upon looking at the filtration system it appeared the water wasn't actually going through the system. We used the ample supply of bottled water that they supplied and was in no way affected by it but i would double check to see that the filtration system is working properly before drinking from the tap. I did email them about it and as fast as they responded about any other concerns we had i'm certain this will be resolved by sundown as well.
Excellent house, excellent island!!!
