Second year in a row, Top Rental and Excellence Award winner!
Laguna Vista is a premier upscale vacation rental on Utila, a small island often called 'The Rose of the Caribbean'.
Laguna Vista is a the only vacation rental on the entire island that provides you not only the privacy you need from your work a day world in a fully found 2 bedroom home away from home, but also your own private swimming pool, champa, and bar that will allow you to rejuvenate your spirits with as much or as little interaction with the outside world as you might see fit.
The Rental: At the pools edge is your private entry into your home with two bedrooms each with a private bathroom, both with queen sized beds, ample, locking closet space, private personal safes, air conditioners, ceiling fans and upgraded linens inviting you to relax in style.
A bright and airy living area complete, with color cable television, DVD player, and a custom built sofa bed for an unexpected guest offers comforts seldom found in the island's rental market.
The residence is also complete with a full size kitchen, including all the accouterments needed to prepare everything from a quick microwave snack to a gourmet meal from the grill top or from the oven.
The Grounds: Just a step outside of your door is the sweet water pool for your exclusive use; Laguna Vista boasts a glass mosaic freeform custom designed and built swimming pool for your pleasure.
Designed by your hosts and built by Watermania, this is a pool built to enjoy. A grand staircase allows for graceful entry into the pool even with a cool beverage in your hand.
With a standard depth throughout allowing any and all to wander about, this is a social gathering area unsurpassed in Utila vacation rentals. Benches designed into the walls are perfect for conversation gathering points, with one including Jacuzzi jets for a simulating back massage at your pleasure. A waterfall adds the pleasing sound of relaxation to complete your experience.
When you're ready to step out and dry off, you can sit in the comfort of a private champa at the water’s edge that shields you not only from the sun, but is perfect for anything from quiet reading time to a jovial atmosphere or even for a private party.
The champa, with a non-skid terra cotta floor, has indirect lighting, ceiling fans, flow through ventilation, and plenty of seating to provide after pool enjoyment.
If you desire, a private bar can be set up in a matter of minutes for your convenience or to entertain should you have guests.
We strive to make your vacation as effortless as possible. Standard services include arranging pick up and return to your point of origin on the island, and provisioning and stocking prior to your arrival, if requested. Massage is available onsite for those wishing to indulge, and yoga mats are available upon request.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Canadians Peter, Joan, Tatianna, and Cody have purchased Laguna Vista! Being life long Canadians and living with winters that can sometimes be extraordinary, having a second home in the Tropics is perfect for us. Laguna Vista was purchased with our retirement in mind, however with that still a few years in the future it is available for our guests to try the lifestyle that is Utila; we're sure that they will fall in love with it like we did!
Mantained by our good friends and on site hosts Tony and Jo, long known as 'the go to people' on the island, we all strive to make your vacation Utila as effortless as possible. If you need anything, they can usually make it happen for you. Their enjoyment of people and of being able to assist with almost anything has been a hallmark of their excellent reputation on the island for years.
Why the Owner Chose Utila: We purchased this property following a visit with Tony & Jo whilst they were in Canada visiting family, who are also our dear friends. At that time we had no interest in purchasing another property, and in fact had never even heard of Utila! After hearing about the lives and the lifestyle that they enjoy we knew it would be right for us, too, and we purchased Laguna Vista. Our subsequent visits to the our Tropical island home have validated our decision many times over. There is a certain lifestyle that is Utila, and it is the lifestyle we want to enjoy in our retirement. We are now set to do just that when the time is right!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The most unique benefit of our home in the Tropics is having the custom pool literally right out of the front door and the custom champa just steps from the pool. In Canada private pools are few and far between, especially in our province, and to have one at the ready at any time of the year is remarkable to us. The fact that the property is maintained and upgraded constantly by Tony & Jo has made it a unique addition to our portfolio, and a boon to us and our guests! Being within walking distance to the heart of town yet just far enough to be out of the hustle and bustle makes this perfect for us, and we think our guests will appreciate the same things!
