About this listing
Roland’s Garden is a charming Bed & Breakfast located in the Fruit Harbour Bight of Guanaja.
Surrounded by tropical vegetation and fruit trees, it is the perfect place for wildlife lovers and everyone looking for the exceptional experience in nature.
Breakfast is served on the balcony from where our guests enjoy amazing views over the forest and the Caribbean sea, and get an almost 'for sure glimpse' at our endemic Yello-naped Amazon parrots.
The Guesthouse’s purpose is to provide you a beautiful hideout, away from the stress and civilization yet offer you a great selection of activities and Eco-adventures such as Sea-Kayaking, Hiking, Diving and Snorkeling to make your stay unforgettable.
The Guesthouse is run completely by solar energy as being as Eco-friendly as possible is of utmost importance to us. There is enough electricity for all your necessities like light, fan computers, refrigeration etc. What we do ask from you, is to please turn everything off when not needed or when you leave the room for environmental reasons. Our hot water is also produced by a solar installation and there is enough hot water to get over cloudy periods of 4 to 6 days.
One other thing that makes us “unique” is that there is NO access by road, only by a footpath which leads through the surrounding vegetation up to the garden. Now don´t worry… your luggage will be taken to the guesthouse by us.
For your comfort and security we’re staffed 24 hours a day by our on-site owner/manager.
It is the right place for you if you are looking for a family style accommodation run by friendly people which gives you the pleasure of living on a Caribbean Island in a very peaceful and Eco friendly setting with amazing views.
Your perfect Island retreat and Eco-adventure outpost!
Guests have access to a sitting area/small common room, a kitchenette, the balcony and the surrounding garden.
Interaction with guests
Roland is usually around the house or the property, and can always help you with questions and reservations for different tours and activities around the island.
Roland was born in germany in 1983. When Roland was 12 years old his family decided to move to Honduras to start a new life in the tropics, away from the rainy and grey Europe. After some years in La Ceiba, Honduras, they decided to move to the beautiful Island of Guanaja where they had friends in need of some helping hands. That´s where Roland had his first contact with Sea Kayaking, diving and the beautiful hiking trails all over the Island. But time went by and eventually Roland had to take a decision about what he wanted to study. An apprentice ship in German Cabinet and Furniture making was the final choice, and Roland moved back to Germany, but left his heart behind on Guanaja. After many years of doing very successful woodwork he decided it was finally time to go HOME to his jewel in the Caribbean. Since 2011 he is back in Guanaja, now running his Guesthouse Bed & Breakfast, and showing travelers and tourists the most beautiful spots on “his” island.
