Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Manager,

I felt compelled to comment on a recent guest's harsh review of the Yellow Bird.

I am familiar with this house. You should ignore comments from such hillbillies like Judy M. and their lack of appreciation of beauty and the finer things in life. I felt offended! Such a beautiful home, the best location and such reasonable rates. You should raise your rates to ensure only better quality guests are attracted! Best of luck.

Warmest Regards.

Beautiful house with privacy and a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Yellow Bird proved to be a fantastic house at which to spend over a week of our Roatan vacation. The immaculate, deluxe house is on a point of iron shore out in the cool tropical breezes. A long, winding dirt road buffers a suitable 1/2 mile distance from the main road and the hustle of anything commercial. 2 kayaks provided easy transportation to Sandy Bay beach and a couple of good restaurants, plus Gibson Bight's quiet waters . The dock gave us access to the water, which was not possible in any ocean swell from the iron shore "access" at the end of Gibson Point. West End, the Botanic Gardens, and Porpoises at Anthony's key are easy 5 minute drives away. Having a rental car gave us options. We think water taxis from West End would come and get one at the dock, but we didn't try it. Groceries must be bought near the airport at Coxens Hole. Management was excellent and check in and out a breeze. Oh, the screens are all in good order, so the house can be wide open. No ac needed in March.

Loved staying in the Yellow Bird, GREAT location, lovely house.

  • 4 of 5

The good:

The home is wonderful, this was obviously someone's dream home because of all the little details. We loved the fourth floor observatory. You sit in the open air with a commanding 360 degree view of the area. Perfect for star gazing and sunset watching.

The reef is lovely and right outside. The deep water entrance in front is better, but harder to navigate. Bring snorkel booties. Snorkeling as good anything we saw on the island. Get a license and bring your spear, lots of lion fish to get.

Huge place, lots of rooms, big kitchen with the usual rental class pots and pans. Huge bushes of Plumeria, big iguanas roaming around, so many fish all around to see.


Only two rooms are air conditioned. The master bedroom is not one of them. Bottom level room is downright stuffy. Lots of screens are broken or missing from the windows, making the open air needed for most of the house troublesome. Typical amount of bugs for a tropical house; it is not well sealed (typical). We had a condensate line block on one of the AC units, dripping into the room. One of the bed frames was failing, but we turned our pillows to the bottom and it was fine. Road to the property is dirt and a little rough, 2WD is fine, but probably want an SUV.

Manager was great to deal with. Left a local phone for our use, nice. Was prompt and responsive on issues.

Overall, the issues are small compared to the simply amazing location and house. Great value and excellent proximity to West End and Bay.

Owner's Response: Hello David, It was a pleasure meeting you and your family. We are presently working on improving the screens all through the house. It's been difficult to find the proper replacement since the original company is no longer in business. The air conditioning drain has been repaired. We are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay at Yellow Bird. It is quite a location! We truly appreciate your comments and they've been noted. It's always our wish to make any improvements for the convenience and comfort of our guests.

Good, but It could be better.

  • 3 of 5

Me and a friend stayed there for 2 weeks, the house is big and well equiped; But it needs air conditioning in the living room and master bedroom area. There were no curtains in order to block the sunshine from reflecting in your eyes specially in the bedrooms as it doesn't let you sleep well in the early morning when the sun rises. The manager needs to be a bit more kind and diplomatic with local guests.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments, they helps us make the changes which can improve the stay of our guests. The location of Yellow Bird, perched on the point of Gibson Bight, offers not only spectacular sea views but also the cooling effect of the Trade Winds. If you enjoy fresh air, just open the large windows and sliding doors surrounding the house, no air conditioning will be necessary. The guest bedrooms don't have the same air flow so a/c is available for additional comfort. Perhaps the reviewer is not aware of the services that we offered at the time of booking: free air conditioning and internet. We promptly assisted when we received a call regarding the safe. We truly appreciate your feedback.

Beautiful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house that is perfect for a family or larger group. There was only 4 in our group and we had PLENTY of space. It would be very comfortable for a party of 6. You can't beat the location, the sunset views from the rooftop patio have to be the best on the island. The kitchen is very well equipped if you plan on doing your own cooking. You can snorkel right off the private dock and we had our dive resort pick us up from there one day to dive. Very convenient location, a short drive to West End for night life and restaurants. The property manager we worked with was sweet and accommodating. I would highly recommend this house to my friends.

Perched like a bird on the point between Gibson Bight and Tom Fool Bight with spectacular sea views all around. Three level spacious home with numerous covered and uncovered patios providing private outdoor sitting areas all with sea views and cooling trade winds.
