This gorgeous 11,830-square-foot residence is located in the center of Roatan, a 50-square-mile island about 30 miles off mainland Honduras. The home is called Casa de los Bahias(House of the Bays), aptly named for its views of two bays from its hilltop location. The home has so many beautiful features such as the double-height ceiling with exposed beams in the great room. The kitchen is fully equipped with its stainless-steel appliances, granite countertop, Mexican tiles and a breakfast nook that has built-in seating. The home also offers maidÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s quarters just off the kitchen.
A decorative feature that runs throughout the home is stained-glass windows and hand-painted tiles, which are all inspired by Mexican haciendas. They are also local hardwoods installed on the floors, including mahogany. The master suite features a walk-in closet, a sitting area and a raised platform for the bed. The sitting area in the master suite has access, via a spiral staircase, to a small observation room with breathtaking views to the mainland of Honduras. This area is also connected to a small library that overlooks the great room.
The outdoor landscaping is lush and tropical with a courtyard, a pond and a wraparound porch with several areas for lounging. The 1.1-acre property also has a free-form freshwater swimming pool, a plunge pool and a hot tub, with an open-sided thatched-roof hut called a palapa. Via
