I had a marvellous time staying at Barbara and John's Airbnb in Roatan, Honduras. The home is situated in a beautiful, extremely safe, and quiet area of West Bay, Roatan with stunning ocean views and a short walk from West Bay beach where the majority of restaurants and dive shops are located. The home and rooms are spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated. A large balcony with seating can be accessed from each of the rooms in order to enjoy the sight and sounds of the ocean and as a retreat from the busy West Bay beach strip. Each room comes with a mini-fridge, filtered water dispenser and a generous supply of towels, so you’ll never have to worry about accessing clean water or running out of towels. Each morning a delicious and hearty breakfast, which caters to personal preference and dietary restriction, was served.
Aside from providing a welcoming space Barbara and John were very helpful in coordinating transportation, at a fair price; providing recommendations of where to eat and dive and provided helpful insight about Roatan, Island.
Upon arriving, Barbara met me at the airport, which was helpful since I was travelling alone. We stopped at, Eldon’s Supermarket, located in Coxen Hole and, which is included in the taxi fair to pick up snacks as the price of groceries in West Bay is significantly higher than in Coxen Hole. I really appreciated this service and it allowed me to get a glimpse into day to day life on Roatan and the cost of goods.
Thank you once again, to the both of you for providing warm and high-end experience.
This place was great! Waking up to a beautiful sunrise, looking over the "iron shore" and ocean was amazing. It was very close to town (about a 10 minute walk), where you can snorkel right off the beach or enjoy some great restaurants.
The breakfast they made each morning was 5-star ... don't change them guys!
John and Barb were both super helpful. They called some of their contacts and set us up with a rental car one day so that we could see the island, and gave us some great ideas of places to see. They also spent time with us so that we felt comfortable walking around town and made sure we had everything we need. It was really great service, way more than we ever expected. They are both very nice, genuine people, and you can tell they love what they're doing.
The room was perfect. The woman who cleans the room did a great job, she was very thorough, and just a very nice person. And the bed was so nice ... better than home.
We have nothing but great things to say ... if you go to Roatan and want to stay in luxury, be in a relaxing environment, and meet some wonderful people, this is the place to stay.
Noel Manor is a great place, with a beautiful view of the ocean. I stayed there during Christmas and Barb& John made the stay very special, very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was perfect.
Finding Noel Manor only enhanced the amazing Roatan. Barb & John helped us with rental car, shared their knowledge of Island and gave us invaluable info for our stay. Our room still had that new smell, clean beautifully decorated. The breakfasts are fantastic!!!!! We enjoyed their company and had the pleasure of having their company on a social level :)
John knows were all the good bands are playing live music !! It is a vacation home we are already planning to come back to. It was hard to leave, can't thank them enough.

I stayed at Noel Manor this past June with my girlfriend. We do a lot of traveling together and this was by far our best trip yet. The location of Noel Manor was exactly what we were looking for. Close enough to walk to night life and daily activities but far enough away that we felt like we had our own piece of the island to ourselves. Our hosts were AMAZING! They knew so much about the island and help direct us to everything we needed. Very accommodating. The rooms were brand new, very clean, and extremely comfortable. The rooms were spacious with a huge walk in closet and large bathroom. The view from our balcony could not have been any better. It felt like a once in a lifetime trip but we are already planning a trip back next year.
I don't typically write reviews, but this place definitely deserves it! The location is very close to restaurants, resorts, night life, yet tucked away enough for a romantic getaway or peace and quiet. The beautiful, spacious 2 story home is brand new, well kept and separated into 4 different rooms available for rent. Each room is super clean and stylishly decorated to make you feel like you're at the perfect beach getaway. The owners are very sweet and knowledgeable with lots of connections around the island too. They are attentive to each guest and happy to help with their plans for their trip. I would recommend this place to anyone, especially couples looking for the ultimate beachfront setting here in Roatan.
This is by far, the best home I've seen on the island.
