Property description

The 'Round' House is a beautiful private home situated on 180 feet of Caribbean beachfront with mountain views of the Honduran mainland and Oyster Lagoon (aka Lower Lagoon). The dock access is in Oyster Lagoon and is just behind the house. The beach gently slopes into Utila Bay, with coral reef the full length of the beach and an 80 foot drop off less than 100 yards from the house, providing a beautiful area to swim, snorkel, and shore dive. This fully equipped home with two bedrooms is perfect for two couples or a family.

The house features a wrap around covered deck, extending 8 feet on the bay side, perfect for watching the sunset over the lagoon and sunrise over Utila bay. It also affords views of the reef and its 'creatures', mountain range of the mainland, and a beautiful view of Utila town across the bay. The deck has a mahogany porch swing, table, chairs and hammocks. The lagoon side dock is perfect for watching the bird and animal life on the lagoon or launching a kayak or being picked up for a charter boat ride.

The air conditioned bedrooms are spacious. The master bedroom contains a king size bed or opionally 2 twin beds, plus a full-size bed, sitting area, walk-in closet, and private bathroom. The second bedroom contains a double closet and includes two twin beds or a king size bed. Both bathrooms include two sink vanities and full bathtubs with shower facilities. With windows circling the house it is airy and light.

There are bay views from every room except the master bedroom, which looks over the lagoon and its surrounding mangroves. The house is furnished throughout with comfortable rattan furniture and has a large modern kitchen, dining area and living room.

Below the house is a large 'bodega' which houses the laundry facilities (washer and dryer), two large water tanks and the hot water heater. Water is supplied by the municipal well and also a private well for backup purposes.

The landscaped grounds, on the sandy beach, are full of local flowering shrubs, shade trees, and palm trees; plus an ever green privacy hedge. The grounds are maintained by Angel, our English speaking home caretaker and wonderful friend. Angel helped build the house and has been with us ever since.

The 'Round' House is located on approximately one half acre on a peninsula in Blue Bayou. It is just a five minute bike ride or 15 minute walk from the west end of Utila town and the public beach area. You will be just far enough out of town to provide privacy and solitude, but just a mile away is our charming town with restaurants, bars, dive shops, stores, internet/phone services, grocery stores, and the friendliest local population you will find in the entire Caribbean!

The house is cleaned weekly with linen changes. Angel cares for the property and is onsite 3 days a week. The other 3 days he is right next door. He is extremely friendly and will help you in any way he can. He will ensure you have butane for cooking, your drinking water delivered, and let you know where you can get anything else you want or are in need of.

We also have kayaks for 5. One double, and three singles.

Please contact Sue with any questions. I am the owner, live on the island year round, and am happy to assist you. Once you reach Utila, Angel will meet you and help you get to the house. You also have our cell phone numbers and prepaid cell phone to contact us during your stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I fell in love with Utila the moment I landed. Moved here in 1994 and never left! I have taught school and run serveral business in town. Now I am semi-retired and enjoy managing my rental homes and helping others plan their adventures in Utila.

Why the Owner Chose Utila:
My family built this home in 1998. I have enjoyed living on the beach for many years, but also wanted a home in the country side. Now I enjoy the best of both worlds while sharing the beachfront 'Round House' experience with others who wish to vist Utila.
