Ward 26 Aug 2013 We have just returned after one of the best summer vacations in a very long time. My family of 5, including my 2 ½ year old daughter, spent a total of 6 ½ weeks on Roatan at Mi Casa. It was absolutely perfect for my family! We wanted to be in West End but out of the evening noise, Mi Casa is perfectly located and just a three minute walk from the Main West End beach road. It is quietly nestled in the trees and so amazingly comfortable it truly felt like our own home. I dive out of Tyll's Dive and my leisurely walk down to the dive shop (5 minutes) to enjoy a coffee with Dorte before a dive was wonderful. Samantha was absolutely the best, she was so accommodating for us it made the whole experience at Mi Casa worth every penny. Tanja was there at a moment’s notice and looked after everything for us, phone, internet, water, transportation. Thanks to everyone for making our stay on Roatan one of the best trips ever, we highly recommend Mi Casa to anyone!
Judy 17 Jun 2013 My friend and I just spent a wonderful week at Mi Casa. Our cab driver Robert stopped at the supermarket on our way to the house from the airport where we were able to stock up on food for our stay. Mi Casa is an enchanting home that felt like ours for the week. It is open and airy with plenty of windows and fans to keep the place comfortable. The house is only a few minutes walk to the village of West End and all that it has to offer. If you like mangos, there are plenty to pick up along the way that have dropped from the trees. We chose to dive with Enonomis Divers a few blocks away who catered to small groups and always put safety first. After our dives it was only a few minutes back to Mi Casa where we would retreat to the hammocks on the porch for an afternoon of R&R. Samantha and Tanja were perfect hosts, responsive to our questions and made sure we had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. I'd return here in a heartbeat.
Laura 25 Apr 2013 This was the second year that family members have stayed at Mi Casa. This was so delightful, close enough to the attractions on West End, yet far enough away that you rarely heard anything (except the roosters). My communications with both the owner and the site manager were great! They did as much as they could to answer our questions and to make our visit great. It was great having a kitchen to cook in (although the oven temp was in C rather than the F). We paid extra to have the house cleaned mid-week (we were on vacation after all). We did rent a car this time (to explore the island) and you should know that the road up to the house is a bit rough and (of course) not paved. It's a short walk to town to some great restaurants and bars. The dive shops and snorkel areas are fantastic (Tyll's/Splash Inn). We drove into Coxen Hole to do our main grocery shopping at Eldons. The options for buying gluten free food were fantastic. Don't bother bringing that stuff (or any "health-foods") from home. We've made a lot of friends in the West End over the years we've been going there, so we'll be back. I'd gladly return tomorrow; but I have to wait until next year.
Kal 24 May 2012 My dive buddy and I rented Mi Casa for a week in May of 2012. Samantha and Tanja were extremely helpful, quick to respond on email and a pleasure to deal with. I felt they would be reliable and trustworthy and wasn't disappointed. The location is a five minute walk from the dive shops and restaurants in West End. The house is clean, spacious, nicely furnished and well equipped (hammocks, plenty of towels, laundry machine, microwave, purified water, etc). I highly recommend staying at Mi Casa.
Carolyn 30 Dec 2011 We had an amazing week in Roatan, staying at Mi Casa. The house is right near the heart of West End (the place you want to be if you're not a all inclusive resort kind of person) but just off the main strip so no one comes roaming around the house. Just a few minutes walk from dozens of restaurants and half moon bay where there is amazing snorkeling! We had no problem at all with the lack of air-conditioning. There are tons of fans and windows, and the house just never got too warm for us! It's true that the roosters are noisy, but using the fans or some ear plugs easily solves that problem! The kitchen is well equipped, clean, and large and the living room was great for socializing! Loved the covered back porch and the hammocks! It was a great place to relax! We'll be back again soon!
Lisa 27 Sep 2011 Have just got back from a wonderful trip to Roatan. Mi Casa was more than we had expected. What a sweet and lovely home! We stayed here for a full week. The decor was very welcoming, the house was clean and well equipped with everything we needed. Tanjah was excellent and very helpful, she was awefully nice and an extremely detailed manager. Our internet didn't work for most of the time we were there though, which was a bummer. There were confused roosters that would start croaking at 11pm, 2am, 4am etc. but we were so tired it didn't bother us much. Overall a very highly recommended place. Well organized and comfy. If the house had AC, it would've been perfect. without AC, we did feel a bit sufficated for a few days when it was particularly hot. A lovely and super organized home nevertheless.
debbi 9 Jul 2011 have just returned from a wonderful stay at mi casa with 3 friends in july 2011. after two weeks of backpacking around hostels we were absolutely thrilled with mi casa as the house is in a great location set back off the main road, was a fantastic size and had everything we needed. Tanja our host was lovely and gave us a very thorough introduction to the island and was available to help if there were any issues. communication with samantha via email was excellent when booking. highly recommended place to stay.
chris 30 Sep 2010 I stayed in mi casa in September 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed the house, amenities and location. It was perfect for quick access into the west end yet removed just enough to have a truly private, remote feel. Sitting on the back deck in a hammock with a book and looking over the remote, wooded hills I felt like I was living in a tree hut in the middle of the rain forest. Yet you have everything you need from french press to pots and pans to cook a meal with. West end restaurants and dive shops are only a five minute walk away. I liked it so much there I'm looking into buying a place myself. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. Thank you.
Joanna 7 Aug 2010 We just visited Roatan in Aug. 2010 and were able to stay in Mi Casa for a few days. The house was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and the location is excellent. Its just a few blocks from West End's busiest areas, but far enough away from any noise. We felt very safe and loved sitting on the porch in the hammocks!
Ulrike, Edwin, Agni and Assai 12 Jun 2010 I stayed in mi casa in february 2010 with my husband and my two liddle kids, on e of them a baby boy of 3 month. we enjoyed west end a lot and surely mi casa was the best place for us to stay. The house is very well equiped (kittchen, bathroom, bedrooms) and we felt imediatly at home. The beach is just 10 minutes away (half moon bay) and the water is perfect for kids (no current, not steep.....)We came with a car from guatemala and left the car in the ferrystation of La ceiba.Tanja - the housekeeper war always friendly, helpful and open for cuestions. I can highly recomand mi casa and westend to have some restful and beautiful vacacions. Nosotros - una familia de cuatro - lo pasamos de maravilla en mi casa. Mis dos hijos son chiquitos - uno solo un bebe de 3 meses, cundo estuvimos en roatan - y realmente nos sentimos en casa. Mi casa esta muy bien equipado - en la cocina, los cuartos, la sala se encuentra todo lo que se necesita. la playa es muy cerca. westend ofrece de todo: restaurantes, tiendas, escuelas de buseo, playa... No pudieramos encontrar un mejor lugar en westend para tener unas vacaciones relajadas y comodas. Quiero recomendar mi casa para todos y todas que quieren pasar un tiempo rico en roatan.
Beth and Steve 27 Mar 2010 Thank you for a wonderful rental experience. From Robert picking us up and timely return the airport, to Tanja's excellent customer service, to the instant comfort of "Mi Casa" we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was a perfect retreat for our needs. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and I was please to see a few well placed provisions like a little olive oil, salt, sugar and spices. We had many meals cooked there, taking the dining table outside on the deck for candle lit dinner post diving was a favorite. The beds, linens and towels were all top notch. I didn't even mind the Rooster Crow Off in the mornings, it was so much more natural then the construction banging we had in Playa Del Carmen last year. Really I can't thank you enough and I'm sure you'll hear from us again in a year or so.
Sylvan 7 Mar 2010 Mi Casa has a relaxed atmosphere and beautiful setting. The big back deck overlooks the trees and is a great place for bird and lizard watching (and for observing the neighbor's chicken flock!). Plenty of movable fans and ceiling fans to keep the air flowing, well stocked kitchen, comfortable casual furniture. The manager, Tanja, is a great help with any problems or questions. Great location just an easy walk from downtown West End but far enough away to be quiet.
Richard G 30 Jan 2010 A very nice location in the West End and the house is well appointed, TV, cookware, washing machine(no toaster)decent beds and quiet except for the roosters, but then who sleeps in on Roatan. For those of you that cannot haul five gallons of water, there is a water delivery truck every Wed a.m. that arrives next door and has water for sale. Tania is very helpful for any questions you may have.. I would recommend this rental for any age group..
Michael 12 Sep 2009 Clean, great location, offers plenty of space. Just a short walk to Half Moon Bay, the sight of many beautiful sunsets. Highly recommend!
Mark 27 Aug 2009 Mi Casa was a truly glorious place to spend a relaxing week in Roatan and West End. The beautiful house is set back from the main street in West End and is very isolated and quiet (yet is only a two-three minute walk from Half Moon Bay, the good restaurants, dive shops, etc.). The house itself is spacious: the large living area with full kitchen, dining area, and lounge area was great for our slightly larger group. The bedrooms are smaller but have more than adequate fans/ventilation, and the bathroom/shower is great. Also, I'd echo other positive comments about the porches -- huge spaces on the front and back of the house. The front porch has a nice place to rinse of sandy feet and gear, and the back porch has wonderful hammocks and lines for drying out clothes. Also, the windows have metal cages, so windows can be left open at all times without danger of someone breaking in. I would recommend this house to anybody!!
Jon 26 Aug 2009 We just spent a week at Mi Casa and loved it! A week wasn't nearly long enough. This was the third time that I've been to Roatan, first at Mi Casa, and from now on I won't stay anywhere else. The house is centrally located in West End with Half Moon Bay, grocery stores, resturants, bars, and dive shops only a few steps away. With a complete kitchen, an open, airy main room, and hammocks on the back porch, the house couldn't feel more comfortable. I have already recommended Mi Casa to several friends. Thank you for the wonderful accommodations, warm welcome, and enjoyable stay!
Dave 27 Mar 2009 My girlfriend and I just spent a week at Mi Casa. We've been back home just a few days and we miss it already. When I stop and think about our vacation and staying at Mi Casa, I think about the air. The air was always nice and the house has just the right balance of breeze and sun and calmness. Our intention for our vacation was to "get away" and enjoy each other and enjoy nature. Mi Casa enabled us to do all of this and more. Its fantastic location served as home base for everything we needed. A typical morning consisted of me getting up with the sun and walking down the dirt road for a solo snorkel. My girlfriend slept in and then made coffee. We'd then watch a little TV or relax in the hammocks and then decide how to spend the rest of our day. Its kitchen enabled us to eat better than we probably do normally at home and for cheap too. It had everything we needed and nothing we didn't. We highly recommend staying here. We will always remember it.
Cathy 7 Mar 2009 We just returned from our 6th two week annual visit to Roatan. We've stayed at resorts at West Bay, rentals in Sandy Bay and another rental in West End, and Mi Casa has been our favourite. The house is clean and well stocked with a washing machine and kitchen amenities. We like to make at least some of our meals and there are daily vegetable and seafood vendors on the main drag in West End. One of the benefits for us was being off the beach as my husband has a horrible allergy to sand fleas. Therefore, although there was no view of the water, we were delighted with the large back deck which offers lovely breezes and a nice vista of lush tropical surroundings. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental.
Vickie 23 Feb 2009 We stayed 3 weeks at Mi Casa and loved it! The house is very comfortable and homey. We really liked the big back porch with 2 hamocks. We took the kitchen table out on the porch for most of our meals. It is located approx 1 1/2 blocks from downtown- west end. Easy access to diving, dining, shopping, etc. The washing machine was a big plus for us. We packed lightly and just washed clothes as we needed. We used the kitchen for about 1/2 our meals. The kitchen had everything you need to cook. My husband was thankful for the coffee maker. I liked the micro-wave to heat up leftovers. The restaurant portions were often large enough to take home leftovers for another meal. In the evenings after a day of diving or sightseeing we enjoyed watching the cable TV or watching a movie from the DVD player. We very much enjoyed our stay at Mi Casa. Thank you!
Amie 4 Jul 2008 This is a lovely 2 bedroom rental that is truly a home, located less then 5 minutes walking from the heart of the west end. Spacious floor plan and large next decks make for relaxing and quiet days and a fully equipped kitchen for making your own meals. All amenities are well within walking distance, with the pleasure of a quiet neighborhood at night. Thank you!
