Right at the edge of the Caribbean Sea, this 2 story modern, 3 bedrooms 3 bath Island home comes with a spectacular view overlooking the Utila Cays harbor with the mountains of Honduras just in the distance. Watch the sun rise and the sun set from your private over the water deck while the cool east wind breeze makes you smile; you know you are in your own paradise. This is also the place for private sunbathing or star watching.
The open floor plan of the main room has a full kitchen with a counter for eating, comfortable seating for dreaming, napping, reading, watching the T.V., or sit on the large covered porch with the same spectacular views as is offered from the over the water deck. While hanging out on the porch you may want to literally hang out in a hammock and watch life pass by during a typical Caribbean day.
All bedroom and living space is air conditioned for comfort. One bedroom is on the main floor with a queen bed and a bathroom a few steps away. The other two private bedrooms are on the 1st floor each with a queen bed and a single bed and en suite.
This Island comfortable Island home is on a private beach with its own dock and party deck making Casa de Playa a one of a kind vacation experience.

Exactly what we were looking for!
Exactly what we were looking for!
My family and I (with 1 teenager and two younger kids) live in the main town of Utila, but when my parents and brother came to visit us from Australia I wanted to show them more of Utila than just the central town area. Because I live in Utila I was aware of this property and it's ideal location as a true tropical island getaway. The property is so much more luxurious than our own Utila home, so it was also a vacation for us as well, especially for the kids who could enjoy the sandy beach right at their front door (instead of having to nag me to take them to the beach as they do when we are in town). It did not disappoint! The eight of us fitted very comfortably into the house, and the ground floor bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathrooms, meant we could also 'separate' and get some 'personal time' when needed. The house is fully appointed with everything you might require. We only had to bring our own clothes, food and booze, and the kitchen area was large enough to accommodate both my mother and my wife cooking at the same time without problems. The younger kids spent most of their time playing in the water at the beachfront while my teenager spent most of her time snorkeling. My parents could easily watch them all from the comfort of the front porch with its overhead fans when my brother and I went scuba diving. Otherwise it was me, sort of watching, while lying in a hammock with a book and a beer. The on-site caretakers, Alex and Anke were extremely pleasant and helpful when we needed to know things; like how to operate the washing machine, but unobtrusive when we wanted private family time. Alex even went across to the Cays and picked up food we ordered by phone from one of the restaurants when we were too lazy to do our own cooking. Tip - there is a small 'fish factory' over at the Cays where the local fisherman bring their daily catches and you can buy fresh fish at extremely low prices as they take it out of the boat. They will even fillet it for you. We had fresh Red Snapper and Tuna steaks which Alex BBQ'ed for us - delicious. Probably the highlight, at least for my parents, and apart from being with their grandchildren, was a 2 hour sunset cruise around all the various Cays - there are 13 of them in total. For the kids, it was being able to play in the water all day long. For my brother it was the scuba diving and fishing off the dock. And for my wife and I, it was relaxing and living like millionaires.
