Utila cottage description

Our 10 sided 'round houses' are cozily nestled together for either a romantic retreat for a couple or a family gathering (BUT far enough apart for a little privacy)! There are a total of 3 separate bungalows that are outfitted with two double beds in each, so a total of 12 people can be accommodated with 4 people in each bungalow.

All of them have azure blue water views and directly located on a white sandy beach, where you can walk directly into the water and start your day of snorkeling, diving or kayaking! The houses are built with beautiful local lumber that is built to last and has a very cozy, warm, wood feeling. There also is a three story dock, and a bodega on the water. The parking is covered parking for a skiff from a sailboat...there are two spaces covered and up to 5 more boat parking spaces available. You can dock at deep water dockage or moor sailboat in protected sunni's cove and coral reefs surround the deep water access. There are a couple of different dive operators, UTOPIA being one of them.

Located directly across the bay from our beach are a a handful of stores for grocery shopping and 4 restaurants that serve local fare. Your shopping experience is located less than 1 minute by skiff or 15 minutes by kayak! There are no cars, busses, or roads so the only way to get around is by boat! Absolutely NO car traffic, once you get to sunni's cove, you will not want to leave!

It is peaceful and quiet, but the buzzing town of utila is located 4 miles east, where there are 14 plus dive shops, 20 plus restaurants, a movie theatre, and much much more!
when the owner is there, there is high speed internet available with your stay and when she is not there are dongles avaialble to use by purchasing time on them. it can range from $35-45 and you can plug it into a USB oort on your computer. It is not very speedy, but good enough for making email contact. If you go across to the cays, you may also find a wi-fi area available but you will need to 'bribe' the password from wherever you find it available.

The water there is collected by the rainwater, so there is a limited supply of water. you must learn to be frugal while staying on or near the cays. THat being said there is a water surcharge if you go above the amount allotted, so short 5 minute showers are encouraged. There is also an electricity allotment of $30/week allowed, so you must turn off fans, lights and air conditioning when you are not in the bungalows.

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About: i've been in banking, mortgage loans and trainer of the bank for my early corporate life and then became a nomad gypsy traveller in search of my perfect island and landed in utila on a sailing trip from panama. was almost going to settle in bocas del toro, but i LOVE utila and the far end of the island away from all the car traffic (not just electric gold carts anymore!) in the main town. i started hacking away at the jungle and little by little built my little villas which was for family in the beginning, but family has not quite made it down here yet. i love to do all active sports such as paddling, scuba, snorkeling, biking, jumping out of airplanes, rafting, swimming, kayaking, exploring, spelunking, and basically doing anything outdoorsy and sportsy as you can imagine. Being an underwater photographer and avid diver for over 30 years u believe i have fins and gills...just wish i could find a rebreather partner to take really AWESOME PHOTOS UNDERWATER!

                  Why Utila:
                  I chose this place ON THE WEST END of utila, BECAUSE OF THE SONG BY pet shoppe boys, WEST END GIRLS! Actually , because it was quiet and yet i have the little town of pigeon cay across from me and diamond cay which is uninhabited, and all of the other cays with just one house on each one. This place is very private and yet, the amenities that i need are all a 15 minute kayak paddle across the bay!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  One of the very unique bnenfits of being RIGHT here and not like ANY other place is that there is a WHITE sandy beach and NOT coral where you can walk right off the beach and snorkel to the reefs, or just stare into the mangroves where you find seahorses, tiny barracudas, and all sorts of tiny infant creatures...no more than steps away! you can then order a panga from the other side to come and pick you up for a nice dinner at one of the cay restaurants, and then kick up your heels at dial willy's disco! Or a short kayak paddle away you can hop off the kayak and snorkel to your hearts content, or make your way over to water cay, another uninhabited island ALL TO yourself...bring a picnic lunch or watch the sunset with a nice bottle of wine, with no one there to bother you...heck bring a tent and blanket and pillows or a hammock to stretch in between two palm trees and camp out there or hang a hammock for the gilligans island experience, and if it is just too serene you could paddle back to your little villa in sunnis cove for a hot shower instead of 'roughing it. bring the traditional hot dogs and somemores makings and can truly say i've been on a deserted island 'roughing it' but have the amenities moments away!
