“Brilliant week”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Love Ocho Palmas: Professional and quick handover of property from property manager. House has beautiful view of Cayos Cochinos on the horizon. AC works and everything works great. Beds are super comfortable. Walked to the beach and back every morning for an hour exercise - we all loved it. Also on the one rainy day there was a huge folder of DVDs to pick from - fresh towels everywhere, kitchen super equipped - somebody really thought about everything. Loved this place! Will come again.

“Another Great Stay at Ocho Palmas”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is the second time we've rented Ocho Palmas and it was just as awesome and relaxing this time as it was the first.

Ruth and Brad do a great job managing this property. They're very communicative throughout the entire rental process and check-in is a breeze. Their office is close by and there's always someone available if you need something during your stay.

I can't think of much to say that hasn't been said already. The previous reviews, including mine, speak for themselves and the pictures of this house really don't do it justice. You have to see it to believe it. I heard from several people that it's one of the nicest homes on the island. You will not be disappointed.

“Number 1 on My List”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This place was a fantastic place. It was more like someone's home not a rental. Of all the home rentals that I have stayed at this one rate's number 1 for me. I could go on but it's best you visit it yourself. It has everything a vacationer would want and more. Hold on, that is not even the best part. The service we received was over the top. Again as being a veteran of home rentals the management staff was so helpful to all our needs. Minor and I mean very minor issues were dealt with ASAP. If your going to Roatan this is the place to stay.

“Beautiful decor, clean and updated with great view from patio and dipping pool.”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Lovely ocean view and within minutes by car) to West Bay Beach and West End. House is beautifully decorated and well stocked with anything you might want our need. Only one bedroom has a water view and one bedroom has no windows at all and was rather hot. The pool was smaller than we expected but was well used. (They had someone working on the jets but never got them working while we were there (Wed to Sat)...therefore it didn't really look like an infinity pool. Warning: the steps and decking around the pool are VERY slippery when wet. We had 3 falls (and no one was running!). My husband has a bruise the size of a cantelope on his bum! Brad said they had just painted. The semi private beach was nice and not far but was very rocky and definitely not a swimming beach.

Management Response

Thank you for your review of Ocho Palmas, we are happy you enjoyed your stay.
As a response to your comments when we checked you out, we had the painter come in the next week and paint the steps with a sanded paint to give them more traction. The next guests were really happy with that addition, thank you for bringing it to our attention.
I apologize for the pool jets, we ended up having to purchase a new pump for them but they are working well now.
We hope to have you back for another visit!

“One of the best vacations I have ever had!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This was our first visit to Roatan and we were so happy with our stay at Ocho Palmas. There were 7 people in our party and the house had plenty of room. There are 4 incredible bedrooms that each have their own private bathroom......we slept like kings. The house itself has EVERYTHING you need. It's fully furnished (very tasteful) so you feel like you're right at home.....even in the kitchen with all modern appliances. There is a water purification system built in so you can drink the water and nobody had any issues. The infinity pool was one of our favorite hang out spots to cool off with a drink and enjoy the view of the Caribbean. If you want to just hang out, read, drink and relax in luxury/privacy then this is your place. There is a nice beach and great snorkeling that are about a 15 min walk from the house. The service from the property managers at Island House Vacation Rentals was excellent and they were always happy to help us with questions/needs. I came back from Roatan feeling fully refreshed and relaxed. I didn't need a vacation after I had gotten back from my vacation! I highly recommend Ocho Palmas and would love to visit again.
