Psssst....Caribbean's Best Kept Secret!!
Over March break I was very fortunate to take a cruise down the Western Caribbean aboard the Carnival Legend. One of the 4 ports of call was the luscious island of Roatan. Roatan is home of the Caribbean Breeze Villas, a condo development I was marketing here in Toronto for a colleague of mine by the name of Edward Du Monceaux. Ed, now a full time resident, realtor and developer in Roatan was previously a top producing realtor from Vancouver. The research I had done for this development 3 years ago left me wondering how I had never heard of this stunning island, but actually going there and having Ed take Chris, Addy and myself for a tour was spectacular!! Seeing a fellow Canadian actually living this dream was truly inspiring.
Ed not only toured us to his own development, the Caribbean Breeze Villas of which there are only 3 units left, but also to some other incredibly beautiful developments on this gorgeous island including Keyhole Bay and The Parrot Tree Plantation. For more info on The Caribbean Breeze Villas inlcuding investment info and a spreadsheet of prices and potential revenues click here Caribbean Breeze Villas . Another option that Ed is offering on one of the villas is to buy a fractional ownership, for approx $99,000 US you can buy one quarter (or 3 months) of this unit. Contact Ed for more details at Edward@EdwardD.net .
Parrot Tree Plantation, walking across the causeway beside the lagoon was incredible, didn't want to leave!! This is a gorgeous develoment in a prime setting.
Roatan, located off the north coast of Honduras is considered the "Next Big Thing" in Caribbean Real Estate. Imagine Costa Rica or Belize 25 years ago. Less than 2 hours from the US (5 hours from Toronto, direct) Roatan is one of the loveliest places on earth with an average day time temperature of 85 degrees (29 degrees celcius), jungle covered mountains looking down on white sand beaches and turquoise waters. Roatan offers some of the world's best scuba diving. The island is surrounded by the world's second largest coral reef, hugging most of the shore. This provides calm, clear beaches for swimming and snorkeling, and many varieties of sea life. Almost every hotel, vacation rental, resort, and other lodging is close enough to walk to beaches.
West Bay Beach, we didn't spend much time on this beach but it is glorious, there's much more to it than appears here. Ed's development is a 2 minute walk to this beach!!
Keyhole Bay, that's Chris walking down the side of this stunning infinity pool, still under construction but still spectacular. Three waterfall treatments will create a true oasis for this development.
For more information on Roatan feel free to contact Ed anytime and tell hime Ron sent you!!
