Utila house description

Get away from it all at the Pineapple House, a newly constructed luxury beachfront home located on the white sands of Treasure Beach.

Located three miles from Utila town and ONLY ACCESSIBLE BY BOAT, a vacation at the Pineapple House is ideal for romantic couples wanting peace and privacy or adult friends and families looking to relax and reconnect.

The large great room has soaring 18 ft. high ceilings and multiple French doors opening onto a wide wrap around veranda with sweeping views of the beach, ocean, the Utila Cays and the mainland mountains on the horizon.

The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and the large dinning table seats eight.

The master bedroom has a queen sized canopy bed, walk in closet, en-suite bathroom and French doors opening onto a sea view veranda. There are three more bedrooms, two of which have French doors that open directly onto the beach, all have queen sized beds, large closets and there are two more full bathrooms.

The Pineapple House is tastefully furnished and all table ware, bed linens and towels are of the finest quality. The shady verandas are also furnished and perfect for lounging and siestas, as is the beach with its hammocks, sun beds and casitas.

A large sunbathing/star gazing deck is built over the water, enjoy cooling breezes as you look at the coral reef below or enjoy sunsets over the cays.

Diving and fishing trips are easily arranged as are trips to the Utila Cays and the snorkeling right in front of the house is world class.

Featuring over 2800 sq. ft. of living space and 600 sq. ft. of covered verandas, the Pineapple House can be rented as a two, three or four bedroom home comfortably accommodating up to 8 adults.

For larger groups we can also offer the delightful CORAL HOUSE which can accommodate an additional eight people in its three queen bedrooms/three bathrooms and a fourth bedroom with two twin beds. The Coral House also features a full kitchen and living room with multiple sets of french doors that open onto a huge wrap around veranda. The Coral House is located approx 150+ft down the beach from The Pineapple House.

Rental includes pick up from Utila town on your arrival day and return boat trip to town on check out day (no boat transfers at night).

Delivery of meals or gourmet meals prepared and served in the house are available via a talented young French chef and a nice restaurant (utila' best) and bar are located only 10-15 minutes walk down the beach at utopia resort. The local style bars and restaurants on the utila cays are only a 5 minute boat ride away.

Our onsite property managers Dave and Trish offer a complete concierge service. Transfers from roatan or mainland honduras? Scuba diving, fishing trips, guided kayak tours, sunsets on deserted islands? Kitchen stocked with your favorite food and drinks? Just ask.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: My wife and I share a mutual love of scuba diving which has fueled our passion for travel and that's how we first discovered the beautiful island of Utila. We'd been visiting the island regularly for a couple of years, when in 2005 we purchased several pieces of beachfront land at Treasure Beach. Our first home, the Coral House, was completed in 2007 and our second, the Pineapple House, was finished in early 2009. We love helping our guests get the most (or least) from their time here and of course diving whenever we get the chance.

                      Why the Owner Chose Utila:
                      I used to love to visit Ambergris Caye Belize in the early nineties and had always wanted to buy property there but somehow never did. When i first visited Utila in 2003 it reminded me of what Ambergris Caye used to be like (but sadly no longer is), quiet, no cruise ships, no chains, no golf courses, no roads and unaffected friendly locals. So this time i took the plunge, determined to enjoy a Caribbean island before it was spoiled by the 21st century.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Treasure Beach is three miles from town and can only be reached by boat, this makes it perfect for those seeking to leave the tourist hoards behind and find peace and privacy. If you're looking for discos, buffets and hard rock t-shirts, you'll hate it. Those seeking warm water, snorkeling, shell collecting, an empty beach, star gazing, diving and boat trips to little cays inhabited by fisherman will love it. there is also a restaurant (utila' best) and beach bar thats only 10-15 mins walk up the beach.
