About Jeff and Michelle Haas
Hi, we are Jeff and Michelle Haas and we are the owners of Casa Sierra and Casa Canuck. We are real estate brokers, investors and property managers in Reno, NV. As we have gotten closer to retirement age we had been searching for a Caribbean destination to call our own. After many vacations searching for just the right place we finally returned to Roatan where my husband had visited as a teen. I had heard many stories of the summer he came to the island, fishing, diving, snorkeling and relaxing on the beach. From the moment, we stepped off the airplane, all the fond memories of that summer in Roatan were confirmed. We had found that special place here in Roatan. Now, 2+ years later and our original purchase of Casa Sierra (half of the building),has expanded to include Casa Canuck. We are happy to have been able to expand our little piece of paradise and welcome you to come share it with us!
Jeff and Michelle Haas purchased this Studio in 2017
Why Jeff and Michelle Haas chose West End
Aside from the charm of the island, the reasons we picked this property were simple, we loved the rustic charm of the West End. We also loved the fact that you are just a few minutes walk to the grocery store, bars, restaurants, shopping and the snorkeling in Half Moon Bay is world class and only a few minutes walk from our place. If you want to go to West Bay for the day, you can take a 5 minute water taxi for a few dollars per person or a regular taxi for a little more.
What makes this Studio unique
Casa Sierra and Casa Canuck suites are nestled in the trees like a giant tree house, we have a dock out through the mangrove to the bight and open to the sea. You can take our complementary kayaks and snorkeling equipment, sit on our private dock or walk a few minutes to Half Moon bay beach. There is no need for a car here in West End as everything is within walking distance.

Gorgeous and Well-maintained Property
Our stay at Casa Sierra was lovely! The property itself is inviting and sturdy, tucked in against the mangroves, and with a view of the lagoon behind. They layout of the room was surprisingly big and the private terrace and aircon were a huge plus. Location was great, just a two minute walk to one of the best snorkeling spots (we saw 3 turtles and a squid in 1 trip) and 5 min. walk to downtown.
Jeff and Michelle were friendly, knowledgeable and prepared. They told us about several cool spots in town and had a ton of snorkeling gear/water toys for us to use. We were happy to have such experienced hosts.
All in all, Roatan was gorgeous and our experience was definitely enhanced by our stay at Casa Sierra.
Perfect West End Location
Michelle & Jeff were very friendly and helpful. Had a great time and found it very affordable. Went out on the Kayaks that where available on property. Close walking distance to the local market and fruit stand, over twenty restaurants on the water, many dive shops & souvenir shops, many bars + live music. Also walking distance to the water Taxi that is very affordable to get to West Bay which is another whole area with resort hotels you can spend an afternoon at. though not much night life in that area. As far as Roatan is concerned West End is the place to be at night. We rented a well maintained & clean studio that had everything we needed including beach towels, and cooking utensils. We had an amazing time and made new friends from places around the globe. Was pleasantly surprised that english was spoken everywhere I went. Can't wait to come back !
Thank-you Jeff, Michelle
Great place to stay, clean, quiet, close to town
Spent 2 weeks and loved it. Condo was very clean, all the amenities you need, walking distance to West End and all the shops and restaurants. Great WiFi and television channels selection. Very Friendly and helpful staff on site. Had a great time and would definitely book again at Casa Sierra.
THE TRIP OF MY LIFE
I have never experienced at VRBO in the Caribbean before, and I was a little nervous. WOW I had nothing to nervous about. The place was immaculate, warming and charming. It had the feel of an island home, mangrove out the back door with boat dock, fans cooling the place, walking distance to everything! It was about 1 minute walk to get into town, seriously amazing! The host did everything possible to make it the perfect vacation. List of hot spots, contact info for taxi (road and water) list of there favorite things(including restaurants, bars, and other things). Honestly I was blown away!! No more large resorts for me, this is my vacation spot from now on! Oh I almost forgot, the neighbors that live next door where incredibly nice as well and helpful with suggestions!
