This place is not fancy but quite charming, very clean, comfortable, and an awesome hideaway/getaway.. It is right on the beach, has incredible views from the porch, an amazing coral reef right out the front door. You will NOT be sorry if you choose to stay at Hobbies Hideaway. John was an extremely gracious host, he picked us up, told...

We just returned from 9 days at HH. We were greeted by John who picked us up at the airport and immediately took us to the store for groceries. Right after that he took us out in his boat and we snorkled out in the reef right in front of Hobbie's Hideaway where we got to see a huge aquarium...

My partner and I just returned from a week at Hobbie's Hideaway and it was exactly what we were hoping for. Clean rooms, cold AC, AMAZING snorkeling, kind hosts and kitchen with everything you need. Some other reviews stated it may not be the best place for travelers who kind of like to keep to themselves but we (who often...

Hello Pat and Jerry, Being a senior reviewer with Trip advisor I did not realize.Thank you for the trip advisor review. It was enjoyment for all of us. I didn't realize what accomplished travelers you were until I saw Jerry's shirt from Tahiti. All that you told us was a experience for us. Of course this is one of the...

If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable apartment that is reasonably priced with owners who treat you like family, this is the place for you. We stayed in the back apartment, which I guess is apartment #3. We had no ocean view, and few windows, but we had air conditioning, a kitchen, with a full sized refrigerator, and a...

Just returned from a week at Hobbies Hideaway. This was our second stay with John and Sue, and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We rented apt #1 that was a one bedroom, and our friends stayed in apt #2 that was a two bedroom. He has also added a third one bedroom apt also. The apartments are fully equipped...

As always our vacation was fabulous at Hobbie's Hideaway! By far the best kept secret on the island for a great, relaxing getaway with AWESOME hosts! Miss John and Sue already and can't wait to get back there soon!!!

There are many wonderful things I can say about Hobbies Hideway,I'll tell you a few. It was a Hidaway, peaceful, not crowded, it was a short way from the husle and bustle of the crowds of down town, but close enough to get to the big grocery stores on one side or the varieties of restraunts, night life and different...

First of all the people of Roatan are great!!! We are from the mid west in the US and surrounded by friendly people. The citizens of Roatan rival the citizens of the mid west. On to our accommodations. We had everything we needed. If there was any extra things we needed we only had to ask Sue or John and...

I'll try to add something new so I'm not just echoing the past reviews here, we found this place to be just what we wanted for the first part of our 1st trip to Roatan. I was originally going to rent a car (I rent one everywhere we go) but John assured me that it wasn't really necessary and it...

This was our first family vacation and I was traveling with my wife and infant son. My wife did most of the searching on TA for our lodging, but when she showed me Hobbie's it looked like a great place for our family. We arrived exhausted after a long travel day. John picked us up from the airport and immediately...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in Sandy Bay,just off the main road on a secluded beachfront area that is quiet and tranquil. The white sand beach parallels the reef and inside the Roatan Marine preserve . Here is a pristine reef system with a abundance of tropical fish and corals within swimming distance from your accommodations Hobbies Hideaway offers affordable prices and a excellent location. Close to West End for the night life,bars and restaurants yet far enough away not to hear the bands at night. Coxen Hole has the new supermarkets and sovenier shops. Best prices on the island just a taxi ride away. $2.00 a person ... more   less
