At Your Service
Our goal is to ensure you get the relaxation you expect from a vacation while experiencing as much or as little of the island as you desire.

Our lush jungle property will offer you a place to relax and rejuvinate. Rest in one of our hammocks, or visit nearby Sandy Bay Beach. West End, and West Bay are a short drive away.

We are happy to help arrange island tours, excursions, or transportation to one of Roatan's world class beaches. If diving or snorkling is what you've come for, we can put you in touch with neighboring dive shops.

When the sun sets you will find many of Roatan's most popular dining and nightlife experiences located in nearby. If a quiet evening is more your style, each balcony enjoys a view of the Caribbean Sea. We also offer a bbq to all guests, allowing for a unique dining experience.

Shawn was quick to respond after booking and so helpful. He arranged for Fernando to pick us up from the ferry terminal and take us to the grocery store on the way there. Fernando, the onsite caretaker and Luna his dog were great hosts and lovely to be around. The place is what the pictures portray and exactly as described and also included everything one might need in the kitchen as well as snorkeling equipment. If you are looking for a nice place to relax, enjoy the ocean view and be surrounded by nature this place is it! Its also conveniently located with easy access to taxi's and public bus transportation to the grocery store, beaches and other touristic areas or if you want they can arrange a car rental for you as well. Thank you all for making our stay unforgettable!

Staying here was probably one of the best decisions of this trip. The place is exactly as described, clean, quiet, cozy and very relaxing. Fernando and Luna were the best hosts. Super helpful and always with a smile (Luna included). If you are looking for a place to unwind, be surrounded by nature but I still be in close proximity of the "hip" places (West Bay and West End), this is the perfect place. Fernando went out of his way to drop us off at the Ferry and return our rental car (took and early ferry and the rental place was closed). Luna was the sweetest of dogs and we loved her roaming around looking for rubs. Again, thank you guys for making this easy-peasy!

Staying at Shawn's place was absolutely delightful! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was very clean, spacious, and a perfect location! We especially appreciated the small touches like the snorkel gear and the towels, as well as Fernando's warm guidance and transportation services! We recommend everyone to stay at Shawn's place!

This Airbnb is by far the best I have ever stayed! It was homey, welcoming, comfortable... it really did feel like my home. I was sad to leave it. Fernando was the most amazing neighbour, and now consider him my great friend. It is true you come here as a stranger, leave as a friend. The apartment had everything I needed and if anything was missing Fernando would make it available. There is gorgeous view of the sea off of the balcony and a nice breeze that comes through. Again, the best Airbnb I have ever stayed. Thank you for everything!

Very nice place to stay. Close to West End and not too expensive to get there. It can get pretty warm in there as there is no air conditioning. But overall a very nice place to stay and relax.

Shawn was quick to respond after booking and set us up with a reliable taxi driver for airport drop off. The room was just as described and was clean and neat. Good restaurants and bars within a 10 minute walk and the airport was a short 15 minute drive away.

Public feedback
Shawn and Leanne were very kind to pick us up at the airport and we greatly appreciated the dinner party and the snorkeling/deep sea fishing boat trip that they put together for all the guests at the Inn - it was superb! The Jungle Reef Inn is located on a hillside with a magnificent view of the ocean - the closest beach is just a few hundred yards below but it does require walking along the very busy road with no sidewalks and no shoulders so it can be a bit unnerving. The Sandy Bay Beach is not as pretty as some of the other beaches in Roatan but it is very quiet and you'll likely have it mostly to yourself. There are a couple of bars and restaurants so there are plenty of services right on the beach. The other beaches are prettier but they require a ten to twenty minute drive or taxi ride and they can be full of cruise ship tourists and beach vendors. If you're going to be in Roatan for more than a few days, you'll probably want to rent a car since hailing taxis will get old after a few days. There is a good parking spot at the base of the drive along the road (parking is somewhat tight right at the Inn) but it does require a walk up the steep driveway. The unit itself has a wonderful front porch that overlooks the ocean and it is shared with the unit next door. Guests will probably spend most of their time on the porch so they will get to know your neighbors well. The kitchenette has a small bar sink, toaster oven and refrigerator and Shawn and Leann graciously allow access to their BBQ grill if you need a burner to heat food. Pots and pans are somewhat limited so the kitchen is best used for preparing an easy breakfast or lunch. The bathroom is probably the nicest bathroom we came across in the Caribbean.

The hosts were outstanding and were available to help with anything we needed. The view was beyond amazing. Humming birds and iguanas greeted us as we arrived. The location was perfect as it was slightly outside of town (hustle/bustle), but had easy access to taxis for a quick and cheap ride. They have done an amazing job remodeling the suites and have everything you need. Botanical gardens are walking distance next door and a must see, as is the Octopus Dive School near by. Can't beat the price for a wonderful stay and we highly recommend staying here when in Roatan.

What a fantastic month of March my husband and I just spent at the Jungle Reef Inn! Shawn and Leanne are fantastic hosts who are willing to help with any requests and go above and beyond! From being picked up at the airport, trips to the grocery store, a lift back to the airport a week later to pick up our rental car and lifts to the beach they made sure that we were welcomed and helped us navigate our way around exploring the island. Thank you Shawn for organizing the 2 boat trips we took - getting out on the water is always a favorite part of our travels! Our apartment had everything we needed to relax and enjoy and we had many great quiet mornings and evenings cooking great meals and just hanging about. It was a pleasant surprise how much we enjoyed meeting other travelers staying at the Jungle Reef Inn and sharing experiences with them. We loved Roatan. What an amazing island full of great people to meet, beaches to chill on and lots of bars & restaurants to enjoy - from beach shacks to palapa huts every tiki bar was fun and full of expats and locals. It's easy to meet people and explains why so many have fallen in love with Roatan and never left. We loved exploring the island and driving into and around all the smaller rural villages and bights. We're missing being out on our jungle reef tree house deck to start the day with a coffee and the sounds of tropical birds and to end each fabulous day out there again with a cocktail or glass of wine. Thanks again Shawn & Leanne!!!

Shawn and Leanne are great hosts - we loved our stay at their place. The room is cozy, modern and in a great shape. Shawn and Leanne took great care of us - they gave us to the airport and the grocery store, gave recommendations and made us feel at home. The house is located 5 mins away from West End, in a very calm and natural environment. We rented a scooter at West End so it was easy to explore Sandy Bay, West End, West Bay and beaches around the house. We really recommend staying with them! You'll love it.

Roatan is not an Island of exoticism, There are busy streets loaded with tourists and ex-pats blended into the scenery. Although Roatan is a home away from home for many, it has been saturated with the likeliness of American culture which has saturated and exasperated every inch of this Island. Shawn and Leanne are great though, among the rotten eggs encountered on this Island they were truly diamonds in the rough. Leanne's hospitality and warm nature created comfort to my soul as I tried to wash down the bitterness I felt from the degenerate rejects of North America with cheap beer and cheaper rum. Shawn's calm demeanor helped me understand the island life better. Maybe I wasn't made for Roatan or maybe the wild Ferry ride from La Ceiba to Roatan was just to much for little old me. Thank you So much Shawn and Leanne for the small, quaint, quiet, safe, spotlessly clean room and the wonderful hospitality that the Island refused to offer.

Our stay at Jungle Reef was extraordinary! The hosts Shawn and Leann were super friendly and easy going. We were fortunate enough to have Shawn pick us up at the airport and welcome us to the Jungle Reef. He spent time with helpful information making our settling in to the area comfortable and stress free. Shawn and Leann always let us know when they were heading to Coxen Hole to pick up groceries and offered for us to come along (we did lots of eating at the Jungle Reef). We also spent social time with Shawn and Leann really enjoying conversations, funny stories and travel adventures. When we left we felt we had made new friends. Amazing people and fantastic hosts! (the two dogs are cuties). The space was clean and had everything we needed. The view was outstanding and our time on the large deck swinging from the hammock was a highlight. We appreciated how private and quiet our space was which was perfect for us and our need to rest. We were a short walk to the beach at Sandy Bay which is one of the more quiet beaches in Sandy Bay with a few lovely restaurants. Our 'collectivo' bus (van) ride to the West End was easy and convenient. We spent considerable amount of time travelling to the West End and enjoyed its character and charm. It was recommended to us to take a water taxi from West End to West Bay which we did on one occasion. We found West Bay very busy as many cruise ship guests will go there for the day. In general the people of Roatan are warm and welcoming. We recommend ear plugs for those light sleepers as you will hear dogs barking in the distance (I suspect this is the case with many places one would stay). We highly recommend Jungle Reef Inn and would be our #1 choice if (when) we return to Roatan for another visit. We LOVED it!. Carla and Steve (Abbotsford, BC)

Sitting out on the balcony looking over the jungle tops to the ocean, there is no doubt you are in paradise. This was rustic, comfortable, quiet and had everything we wanted. Shawn and Leanne were wonderful hosts. They picked us up at the airport, took us shopping and made sure we were happy. We will definitely return and we have made lovely new friends in the bargain!

WOW !!! I was traveling with my boyfriend and we rented the apartment with the big kitchen. The hosts are amazing and very very welcoming. Everything was clean and well maintained. They came to pick us up from the airport, without charging anything. They also brought us to the grocery store and the dive shop near the apartment. Just a few minutes walk from the beach and the dive shops. I will definitely go back again someday ! Big 10/10 !!

This place has a fantastic view where you can watch the waves crash over the reef. Shawn, Leann and Daeyten are incredibly nice and helpful. They gave us rides to the store, airport and ferry dock. It'll cost between $1-2 to get to West End that has pretty much everything.

Public feedback
We couldn't have asked for better hosts than Shawn and Leanne. We stayed at the Jungle Reef Inn over Christmas, and everything was simply perfect. We had plans to explore Roatan and Sandy Bay whilst we were staying for the couple of days over Christmas, however we were so comfortable and so welcomed that we didn't end up leaving until we checked out and didn't want to leave even then. Highly recommend staying here, the room is comfortable with everything you could possibly meet and the view from the balconies is marvelous. Also, the best shower we have had in 7 weeks of travelling within Central America. Would stay there again in a heartbeat if we were ever in Roatan again!

If you want to feel like you are in the jungle, with a view of the ocean, but still have easy access to everything else, this is the place to stay.

Jungle Reef Inn is perfect place to stay for an enjoyable holiday. The Inn is both a comfortable and beautiful spot to hang out. The owners provide courteous service and helpful experience and knowledge about the island. Whether you are looking to relax or want to enjoy many of the island's activities, the central location is perfect to suit all of your plans.

This was a magical stay with a wonderful ocean view, quiet, and a balcony with a hammock overlooking the treetops. It was exactly what we were looking for. The owners Shawn and Leanne are incredible. We will come again and again.

Perhaps I am a little biased as I am friends with the owners ,..but that aside they have been excellent hosts. I am currently halfway through my one month stay here and honestly couldn´t be happier with the way things are going.

Our weeklong stay at Jungle Reef Inn was superb. The family who operates it was extremely welcoming and helpful and knowledgeable. The accommodations are very well maintained, there is a lovely view of the reef and restaurants and dive shops in walking distance. I highly recommend staying here if you are going to Roatan!
