Toucan Blue is a privately owned four bedroom beach house located 20 kilometers east of the Roatan International airport, mid-island on the scenic north coast in Milton Bight. The clear Caribbean water is just steps from the front door and the second largest barrier reef in the world approximately 300 meters before you.
Roatan, one of the Bay Islands of Honduras, is included in the book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die by Patricia Schultz. For years, Roatan was known mainly to divers for the exquisite diving adventure around the barrier reef. The improved infrastructure on the island now brings growing toursm and cruise ship passengers. English is the main language of the island, with Spanish widely spoken, and US currency is accepted.

There are only four other homes on the white sand peninsula that share the dock with Toucan Blue, with security on site. At the end of the dock there is a thatched palapa with benches--a great place for morning coffee at sunrise or beverages at sunset. From the palapa setting, both sunrise and sunset can be events.
The house is decorated in lively Caribbean colors and each room has ceiling fans and air conditioning, if needed. The bright, open main floor on the upper level includes the living area, kitchen, dining, half bath, and huge deck. The large sapphire blue bedroom with bath/shower is also on the upper level with patio doors opening to the deck.
There are indoor/outdoor speakers for music while upstairs in the house or on the deck. There is DirectTV (basic plan) and DVD plyer for those times that you want to be indoors, and you can keep in touch with others using the wireless internet connection.
The large, covered, ceramic tiled outdoor deck is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the tranquil setting and enless view. It is likely the place that you will spend most of your time while at the house. It is also a great place to laze in the hammocks, listen to the waves breaking over the reef, watch the hummingbirds at the feeder, or sit by the railing and gaze at the star filled sky at night.
The patio table seats six with another table and chairs for additional deck seating/dining available. The BBQ grill is handy adjacent to the kitchen, in a separate deck area. A local cook is available for a nominal fee if you are interested in having island meals prepared at the house.
The lower level includes the large emerald green bedroom with its own bath/shower. The two other bedrooms on the lower level share a full bathroom with tub/shower. There is a laundry room with full size washer and dryer. An outdoor shower is available to wash off the sand and salt before entering the home.
Enjoy the stunning views of the Caribbean Sea from this vacation home, paddle the sea inside the barrier reef in the two provided sea kayaks, stroll the white sand beach, view seal life from the dock, or gently swing in one of the hammocks on the deck.
