This charming, newly built 1 bedroom "Flamingo Cabin" offers beautiful views of Jones Ville harbor. Situated right over the water, it is over 800 Sq feet of living space. When you step out on the deck you will never want to leave.

This cabin is located on 6 acres of a beautifully manicured point. You can jump from your own private dock into the water or maybe you would like to go kayaking through the mangroves, that were used by pirates, or take the boat out and have a look at the island from the water side.

The gentle ocean breeze keeps the cabin cool. The cabin has an open kitchen for dining and the living room is complete with TV, DVD, Internet and Cable. The Flamingo cabin is tastefully decorated with a king size bed and air conditioning unit to make your stay comfortable, which makes it perfect for a small family or a couple.

Large private front deck with unique wooden furniture that you can relax in.

A perfect place to spend your mornings with a book or afternoon and evenings with your favorite ice cold beverage or coffee. The only traffic that you will see is the boats as they sail or motor by. This is a water access only property but just minutes away from wherever you wish to go, its located close to the public dock. The less than 1 minute boat ride offers a wonderful view of the property as it welcomes you.

My wife and I stayed at the Flamingo cabin from June 20-23, and this ranks as our best VRBO experience to date. The cabin owner, Rosina J., was born for hosting and goes the extra mile in everything she does (without being intrusive). This cabin is water access only though just a 2 minute boat ride from where you can park your car or call a cab. She was fully available to us to shuttle us back and forth as we required, but the cabin and views are so incredible, we suggest that you settle in and enjoy a few days in the vicinity of the cabin. (If you know how to drive a small boat, there is one available at the cabin for rent for $20 per day.) There are two restaurants nearby, Trico’s and Hole in the Wall, that will come and get you by boat and bring you back after happy hour or a meal. We preferred Trico’s (we recommend the lobster nachos) though Hole in the Wall is a fun place to see (see Trip Advisor for more info on Hole in the Wall).

The cabin is well stocked, including TP, paper towel, dish soap, bathroom soap/shampoo, washing detergent (for clothes washer) so it is really ready to go except for groceries. Rosina takes you to the grocery store in French Harbour on the way from airport/ferry, allowing you all the time you need. (As an aside, there is also a small shop located near the cabin; Rosina will drive you to if you forget some essential.)

The cabin is beautiful; its outstanding feature is the very large covered porch/deck with the 180 degree views! Sit back and enjoy the view and breezes! The cabin also comes with kayaks. One of the most fabulous outings we did on Roatan was kayaking through the mangroves near Flamingo cabin. We kayaked for 2 hours through the mangroves and around the bight. AWESOME!

Rosina also runs a tour business called Hillview Tours. We took advantage of that and booked an all-day tour of the island with her on our 2nd day. She is an “islander” with deep knowledge and fun facts about the island. I thought a full-day would be way too much and initially asked for ½ day, but as we finished up our half-day, we wanted more time and asked her to continue for the full day. It was a fabulous orientation to the island, and helped us to see and understand all of the nooks and crannies (and there are many). Based on our tour, we were able to better plan and prioritize our entire visit to Roatan.

Escape Winter With Water Only Access

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I Stayed in Flamingo cabin(1 bed 1 bath) From Feb 10 to Mar 10 /2017, there is also Mermaid cabin( 2 bed 1 bath).The owners Sonny and Rosina are just the best hosts.They do airport transfer on arrival and departure at no charge.There is no real need to rent a car as Rosina will take you to French Harbour once a week for groceries,no charge,she is also a tour guide and will take you wherever for a nominal charge.The property is water access only and they will shuttle you to the dock whenever you need .We rented an 8 hp runabout from Sonny and we were self sufficient as far travel to swimming and snorkeling, local stores and restaurants and visiting friends.We visited with them last year and came back again this year so that tells you something about the hospitality of Sonny and Rosina.There are kayaks with the property and pneumatic water toys,my wife's favorite was the blow up Sea Do that could be towed behind the boat, and I arranged to rent a Hobie cat from a local.Rosina took us to a local celebration in Punta Gorda.Sonny took us on a great fishing and sight seeing trip to the far east end of the island and swimming at Pigeon Key .I love sailing and just the other side of the Bight was a couple that took us sailing we just motored over tied up at their dock and we were away.I cannot say enough good things about Hill View Cabins and the owners.

Amazing cabin, great price, wonderful people

  • 5 of 5

First off, if a relaxing vacation is what you are looking for then look no farther.

The cabin was perfect for this. There were plenty of places to go if you need to, but otherwise just hanging out at the cabin and enjoying the weather was enough for multiple days of vacation.

Rosina and Sonny were great to stay with.

They both go above and beyond to make sure your stay with them is the best it can be.

The cabin was stocked with virtually everything we could have asked for, and then some.

Rosina helped set up a horse back ride for us, took us to the store when we asked and was just nice to visit with.

The local area offered different restaurants and a little store if needed. Using the kayaks on calm days was easy and fun, but the option to rent a boat from Sonny and Rosina was very helpful and easy to do.

Beautiful New Homes with Everything You Need!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent January and February 2016 with Rosina and Sonny at Hill View. We were originally booked to stay in the Mermaid Cabin for the first month and then move to another bight in Roatan for February. Within a couple days, we had no interest in leaving and changed our reservations to stay on in the Flamingo Cabin for February! Our comfort level was an A+ for both months- both cabins are fully appointed, beautifully decorated, and have anything you need for a short or long-term stay. They are comfortable, clean, and in a great location. Don't be worried about the "water-access" description- it's literally a couple minute boat ride to several stores for basics, restaurants, and the road to take you into town. Sonny and Rosina are the most welcoming and gracious hosts you could ask for! They answered our questions and concerns quickly and helped us quickly adjust to island living. The fishing is amazing, and we caught barracuda and snapper right off our dock! Looking down from the deck, we saw thousands of fish, sting-rays, lion fish, and even got to see an octopus! This is a perfect location to enjoy the sunrises and sunsets, relax in a hammock and read, go for a swim, and central enough to head to any number of fun bars and restaurants. It's been two weeks since we have been home, and I am already trying to figure out when we can go back! We highly recommend these cabins and much of our enjoyment came from the comfortable and friendly atmosphere provided by Sonny and Rosina. They are honest, trustworthy people who we were able to rely upon for helpful advice and fair business practices.

WOW what a place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed with Sonny and Rosina from Feb 1/2016 to Feb29/2016.They are excellent hosts.The value they added to the Cabin by being there and giving advise and taking us to the grocery store is hard to put a price on.The cabin is excellent,the view is supreme ,They gave us a phone for local use,so we could call water taxis,call restaurants for pick up or take out.For a nominal fee Sonny took us deep sea fishing and a tour of the Eastern end of the island,they arranged with a local diver to deliver us lobster and fish.some of the fish we had was caught by us on Sonny's trip.We had 2 kayaks a motor boat and a hobie cat to sail.We felt very secure in their cabin.There were restaurants near by and stores we could access with our boat,We even took our hobie cat to the famous Hole in the Wall restaurant which we could almost see from our balcony.All the attractions of Roatan (of which there are many) are accessable from the cabin.All tour guides and dive boats will pick you up from the cabin.We rank Sonny and Rosina as the top hosts we have stayed with.
