About Us

Although we have varied backgrounds, we are linked by one common passion- to share our love for the island and experience of Roatan. We think there is no better place to live and we look forward to opening the island up to you on your vacation.

Let us share our passion for Roatan with you.


Mike Carter

I have an extensive background in customer service with years of retail experience. My experience at World Watersports and Divers Direct (the world’s largest retailer of scuba diving equipment) gave me great exposure into building and growing the number one web site for scuba diving equipment. This business background and customer service philosophy will serve Roatan Vacation Rentals Customers well whether I am taking care of your house or making your vacation one to remember. I look forward to working with you.


Gene DeMarco

I am familiar with the challenges and opportunities of island living. I have managed resorts from Cayman to Key West. One of the things these experiences have taught me is that things work differently on an island. From making sure that our guests are well cared for, to making sure that our rental homes are well maintained, I am here to make certain that your stay with us is time well spent. We want you to return time and again and tell your friends and family what a great vacation you had with us in Roatan.

Jannel McBride

Born and raised on beautiful Island of Roatan. Graduated from UNAH in La Ceiba as professional nurse and worked for 8 years as nurse managing and NGO in the rural area of Honduras. Decided move back in 2017. The idea of coming back to peace, tranquility and the natural beauty of my home town was not a tough decision to make, so I did.

Joined Roatan Vacation Rentals December 2017, my job mainly is house keeping supervision and inventory control of the condos at Lawson Rock; it has been nice to work with a staff from different walks of life, it makes for great learning and working experience.
