Property description

Fully furnished Beach Front 1 bedroom home located in the much sought after Blue Bayou area of Utila.

Our Beach House has a great island feel with a living area, fully equipped kitchen, 1 bedroom and 1 bath with hot water shower. There is a queen bed, futon and open shelving for clothing. We have town power and water, ceiling fans, air conditioning, washing machine as well as a TV with DVD player, DVD's, available internet (broadband card) and phone.

The house has a nice covered front porch with wooden swing and hammock. A great place to have your coffee and watch the sun rise, boats, snorkelers and eagle rays passing by.

There is also a large deck in front of the Beach House, extending over the water. A raised Champa (an open sided, roofed area) which is a great place to relax, watch all the activities going on in the bay and catch the beautiful Utila trade winds.

The Beach House is nestled in between the Caribbean Sea and the Lower Lagoon which provides access to the pristine beaches and reefs of the northern shores of Utila.

The reef along Blue Bayou is vivacious and healthy with many reef fish, eagle rays, moray eels, lovely Staghorn Coral, Brain Coral and ecosystems to explore. The snorkeling and shore diving is just fantastic here.

Always, when visiting any ocean destination, be sure to bring sun screen, your snorkel, mask, water booties and fins for exploring all the sea life that is right out our front door. Check with the dive shops for renting tanks as there is a dive site just yards from the deck.

Be sure to bring bug spray. As a rule we always have a nice breeze blowing so sand fleas should not be a problem, but if the breeze dies down we have found that baby oil works well, along with bug coils which are available in any store on the island.

Utila is just a beautiful little island with friendly people. A must see for divers and non-divers alike.

Car: Not Necessary

From right out your own front door, there is birdwatching, eagle ray watching & lots of aquatic life to take in. Only a short walk to town, where there are excellent restaurants and bars. There are many grocery markets, banking, a public beach, internet cafe, and night life for the younger crowd. Take a 10 minute boat ride to spend a day on your own private cay, swimming, snorkeling and picnicking. A kayak trip to the north shore is a must!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Deanna's family is 4 generations on Utila. She and Ed spend about 3 months out of the year here in their 2nd home, also located in the Blue Bayou area. We are making plans to live full time on the island because of its beauty, hospitality and long family history.

Why the Owner Chose Utila:
The Beach House in Blue Bayou is close enough to town to shop, dine and take in the island's culture, yet situated in one of the most private and quietest areas on the island. Truly, the diving and snorkeling right outside the front door is unrivaled.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The warm Caribbean Sea is right out your front door, literally. If you dive, snorkel or just love playing in the ocean, this property is for you.
