Located 35-miles off the coast of the tropical island of Roatán, is one of the Caribbean’s best kept secrets – Pristine Bay – and it’s just a short 3-hour flight from DFW International Airport. You could ideally leave around 8 a.m. and be on the beach by lunch!
Currently offered for $438,000, this exquisite Beach View Villa is nestled in Roatán’s only five-star resort community, anchored by an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Pete Dye. The property boasts two bedrooms, two baths, travertine floors, native Honduran cabinetry, and Bosch stainless-steel appliances. Watch the clear, blue water crash against the white beach on your own private deck, or take a dive into the luxurious infinity pool. A private outdoor living space includes a large seating area and built in grill. The easy, breezy beach lifestyle never looked so good.
Roatán itself is a wonderland, complete with uncrowded beaches. Year-round temperatures average 80 degrees, and the warm water is home to some of the most unique aquatic life in the entire world. Deep sea fishers love taking advantage of the abundant populations of Blue Marlin, Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo. Roatán is situated near the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, which is the second largest reef in the world, only behind Australia’s – a huge draw for divers.
Named one of the top three islands to live on by Island Magazine, and just last year Scuba Diving Magazine awarded the island “Best Dive Site”. As part of the exclusive community, residents enjoy other amenities such as guarded entrances for ultimate security, tennis courts with a view, and four incredible restaurants that offer in-residence delivery.
There are a couple of ownership options here. At Pristine Bay you get the opportunity for 100% home ownership, but there is also the option to put the property into a rental pool. This area is a privileged collection of homes including larger residences and charming villas, all with spacious terraces and private pools. Or you can also choose to buy in Las Verandas, where you will reap the benefits of ownership for 65 days per year, after which the property is put into a rental pool. From there, all the marketing, management and upkeep are taken care of. Both are great opportunities to secure your slice of the good life in paradise.
