    About this property

    Temple Tree House, Romantic Beach Front Getaway, Private 1 Acre Estate

    Just 20 steps down to the beach with your own outdoor shower. Just expanded 2013. Large new queen bed and linens. Bedroom has it's own large deck with hammock. Full deck outside the full louvered glass front of this True Island Cabin where you enjoy the soothing Caribbean breezes. Everything is screened of course. Main room has efficiency kitchen with new fridge, stove, toaster, blender, drip coffee maker and press with bean grinder. Open concept kitchen sitting and eating area. Another hammock and table and chairs on the front deck for hours of privacy reading and sleeping. Go snorkelling off our new dock with the snorkelling equipment that comes with the rental, to one of the most stunning reef formations in the Caribbean. (second largest reef in the world). You can sit on the dock and enjoy the dolphins and their shows every day. We suggest snorkelling with the dolphins! The use of two single kayaks come with the property for our guests to use. This a one acre private property with Casa Cowee as the main house and Temple Tree house high off the beach which is used for local access to the properties on it. The houses are designed to catch the breezes off the water so the use of AC is really not necessary. In fact I normally have to use the light weight duvets. Sunsets are absolutely the most stunning from our home. This is a one acre estate which is lush with many fruit trees including lemons, limes, mangos, bananas, avocados, nuts etc. The property is gated with a private circular drive around a massive Mango Tree and in the back there is a towering Rain Forest LeCeiba Tree that takes your breath away. Just one to two minutes walk to 4 great restaurants and three fun bars. 10 Min. drive to West End which is filled with restaurants and bars to step it up a big pace. Or you can have our property manager hire a private chef for a night. There is a produce truck that comes by daily if you ask Jose he can have them stop in our drive. Everything for a true island experience. This property is located 100' away from the larger Casa Cowee VRBO listing #126086 So if you are looking for space for up to 9 people. $50.00 for pick up and drop off at the airport along with your grocery stop. AC is a min. 75.00 + surcharge for the week as most people do not want to use. There is the best health clinic just minutes walk at Anthony's Key Resort and they usually fill prescriptions there.

    A Stunning Property in the Summer

    This is my third stay at The Casa Cowee property. The previous two were in the large house Casa Cowee and this my first in the Temple Tree House as I came down on my own. The temperature was actually 4 degrees less than in Canada. I used both decks. The one off the bedroom in the morning for a moderated sun and the front one lounging in the hammock for the sunset. My only complaint was not being able to read because I would be missing the sunset which in summer is right out front.. Also the fruits, mango, limes, Jack Fruit, Guanabana, avocado that Jose would bring to me daily from the property was beyond my dreams. Smoothies and granita daily. It is much quieter in off "high" season but then instead of seeing trees in dormancy in the "winter" I experienced Roatan in full bloom on the Casa Cowee Estate. With less tourists, I was able to meet the local people and business owners to the point of becoming friends. Of course kayaking out to the dolphins and snorkelling out to the reef out front was a daily routine. I have to thank Suzanne for convincing me this is a great season for a visit but Jose, Channin and Kimberly were the best hosts. I have found my second home.

    The most relaxing vacation ever.

    This is the first time my husband and I visited Roatan and we loved it. It was the most relaxing vacation we ever had. No need for a car, water taxi’s pick you up and drop you off right at the dock. Temple Tree location is perfect, 5 excellent resturants and bars are walking distance right on the beach. Snorkeling is fantastic. The people on Roatan are very well mannered and friendly, we will definitely be back!

    Perfect for those who want a camping plus experience

    We were excited to stay in a local spot nestled in the "jungle," right off the beach with high reviews (addressed further down). However, we were most underwhelmed and have never been so excited to return home to a clean, airtight house :( If you are looking for rustic and more of an indoor camping environment, this place is for you. Otherwise, use search terms such as "modern" and "updated" to find more suitable properties in the same price range. We were surprised to find the Temple Tree House was a cramped cabin with old horizontally-stacked wooden shutters in the bedroom (instead of windows)--creating a dark and dank environment -- and single pane glass slatted windows in the cramped kitchen/living room. The bathroom in the Temple Tree House, however, was fairly updated and fairly large (approximately the same ft2 as the kitchen/living room). We were allowed to use the Casa Cowee deck since the other two co-located properties were not occupied. We would have felt claustrophobic had we been confined to the Temple Tree House, especially during the power outages and storms. After the repair men deemed the AC unit irreparable (following two nights of 27-29C air conditioning in the bedroom), we spoke to the groundskeeper (Jose) and then the manager (Channin) and were ultimately allowed to move to the bigger Casa Cowee since no one was staying there. Compared to the former, it was heaven. Compared to a western 3 star motel, it was poor. We can only imagine that the high reviews were by people who enjoy spartan conditions. One of the biggest drawbacks to both properties: the "windows" do not close/seal AND there are plenty of gaps at the doors, windows, floors, and walls that allow cockroaches, flying ants, mosquitos, etc. to get into the living spaces. It was difficult to decide what was worse: going to bed without washing off the DEET bug spray or being bitten in bed by flying ants. Fortunately, I always lit the floor at night with a flashlight: one night I walked into the bathroom in the middle of the night and avoided stepping on a cockroach. Didn't stop the blood curdling scream, though! The falling nuts and rainfall reverberated on the metal roof, so bring ear plugs. There is only one air conditioner unit -- in the master bedroom. While some reviews reference a cool breeze, high humidity and upper 80s temperatures did not feel cool to us. The the wifi at the Temple Tree House was spotty at best.

    5/5 Excellent

    Cozy, quiet, and best of all, right on the beach.

    A very special place to get away from everything. From the moment we were picked up at the airport by Channin to the end of the week when Jose loaded our bags, our stay was wonderful. The house was spacious for two people, with separate rooms and plenty of deck space for the early-risers. We discovered Roatan is really hot in June (yes, everybody warned us) but the mornings were beautiful for walking and the afternoons were made for snorkeling and kayaking.

    5/5 Excellent

    A wonderful oasis on Roatan

    The property is very conveniently located near restaurants, points of interest and one of the most spectacular sunsets on Roatan. We definitely enjoyed our stay. Channin and Kemberlee were wonderful. We had an airport pick-up and a stop by the grocery store for some supplies...then off to the property. Channin gave us a tour of the island and was very helpful and tolerant of all of our questions. Jose' is a hard worker and was there in seconds if we needed anything. You just walk outside and are greeted with a smile and a "good morning". I don't know where he is but suddenly he's there asking if you need anything..then he's gone, letting you get about your business of enjoying the beautiful scenery. The house is pleasant, well placed to catch the cooling island breezes and what a great view. We were there a week and had a great experience. So great that we are actually already planning our return trip. Casa Cowee / Temple Tree House is an amazing property. The trees, the flowers, the birds everything is just....well...perfect. The beach is just steps away, the dock and seating were really nice to get out over the water on. The swimming is just spectacular. The reef is only a few hundred meters away. Its a perfect place to sit on the deck, enjoy the day (or the spectacular sunsets) listen to the birds calling and the dolphins breaching the water and slapping back down on the surf. Dreams are made of such things. I would heartily recommend this property to anyone who wants a little oasis on a wonderful Caribbean Island
