“breathtaking and serene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2009

We stayed at Blenny cabins for a short while during a slower season on the island. We had heard about it from a friend and were on a quick get away so wanted easy access to the town of West End and total relaxation and that is what we got. Jenny her self is the most gracious host even welcoming us onto her own private deck for a sunset cocktail!
Waking up to the waves on the iron shore and your own outdoor kitchen with an ocean view to die for and only a 2 minute walk from everything that you need....I would put this down as the best spot in West End to stay.
Our quick stop in Roatan was amazing and totally unforgettable and Jenny helped that along with her beautiful location.. We would come back and stay at Blenny cabins again in a heart beat.

Great location, off the main strip so it is nice and quiet, but close enough to walk to everything. The snorkeling in front of the house is good an the view for sunsets is great. We stayed with five people and there was plenty of room. Beds are comfortable and there is AC, soo nice!!

My cousin was teaching on the mainland so we decided to meet in Roatan for a week vacation but I didn't know very much about it....Jenny was great and answered all my questions via email. Her house and cabins are in a perfect location, nice and quiet but a short, easy and safe walk into town. Cabins are clean and simple but have everything thing you need and Jenny is great. I would highly recommend! Enjoy West End is a great getaway!

This was my fifth trip to Roatan, and my first stay at Blennys cabin after meeting Jenny a few years ago. You can not ask for a better location with no need for a car, TV, radio, or newspaper to unwind and relax. Short Walking distance to the Sea Grape dive shop, Woody's "supermarket" and all the great restaurants in West End. Jenny's hospitality and general care for her guests is exemplary. I'm sure I'll be back to work on some serious hammock time.

We showed up for a month, and stayed for 2! The Blenny Cabin's were our first stop in Roatan, only a few minutes from the bustle of west end, it is like you entered your own secluded island when you take the short walk out of town to Blenny's Cabins. It is calm and peaceful with a feeling of serenity. The rustic cabin, decorated with local art and fresh flowers makes you feel welcome from the start. When you walk to the back porch and settle into the hammock next to the outdoor kitchen overlooking sunset on the Caribbean sea you will never want to leave. Blenny's is the best deal on Roatan a hidden local secret catering not to the masses but the most appreciating clientele. A lovely place to rest your head in paradise.

  • Liked — The laid back quiet, but safe atmosphere

Blenny Cabins is one of Roatan's best-kept secrets for accomodation location, comfort, affordability, and privacy. Located a lovely 4-minute walk from beautiful Half Moon Bay as well as all of the action of West End, our (duplex) cabin had two comfortable beds (one double and 1 single), a bathroom with shower, A/C, small fridge and microwave, and an outdoor kitchen on the covered veranda. The interior was tasefully done with wood decor. We stayed for two months (July and August) at very reasonably-priced rates. Shrub landscaping buffered our building from the access road which was seldom used other than by the local water, juice, and fresh vegetable trucks! A lovely lawn area provided an unobstucted view of passing cruise ships, dive boats, and lovely sunsets from the hammock on our veranda. And ... we hardly had any biting insects to deal with! Private access and awesome swimming, snorkelling, and diving were just steps away on our 'Iron Shore' beach (bring 'beach shoes' though). Jenny was most accomodating; she went 'above and beyond' to make everything perfect for us! If you're looking for a step up in accomodation, ask Jenny about Blenny House!

We went to Roatan looking to check out buying land and wanted something relatively cheap and cheerful to stay with our 2 kids, aged 10 and 12. We stayed in the owner's side of the house which she had vacated as the rental side was booked up already. The place was great in terms of convenience (to West End, Spanish School and ferries to West Bay); we had a place to park the car we rented and the place was clean and tidy.
We took up the owner on the offer to pick us upon arrival at the airport and take us grocery shopping so we didn't have to figure out how to get around the island after a longish trip.
Only complaint on the location was a lack of dining table & chairs (which I'm told exist in the rental house), lack of decent crockery and the a/c in one of the two bedrooms wasn't working. We did ask for a coffee maker upon arrival and that was provided within 24 hrs.
I understand none of these issue exist in the rental property so you should be fine and the owner is very accommodating in trying to meet your requests and answer any questions ahead of your stay.
All in all, a comfortable, roomy place to stay and provided the issues don't exist in the rental house (which from the other reviews don't appear to), I'd recommend it to others.

  • Liked — Location and the owner
  • Disliked — No dining table/chairs to eat on, no a/c in one bedroom
