"This was our 2nd time staying in this house and we would definitely stay here again. The location is great! Close enough to town and the public beach to walk or ride a bike yet far enough away to be peaceful if the town is partying. There is great snorkeling right out front. The back yard is a wonderful place to lay by the water - sand, sun, shady palms, lounge chairs, a bbq and all the comforts of the house just steps away! The house is very roomy. The 2 bedrooms on each side of the house make it perfect for 2 couples or families. Add the downstairs apartment for even more room and everyone has plenty of personal space. The back deck with all its french doors, hammock and chairs is where we spent every morning and evening. The place is well stocked with pots, pans, tableware and nice towels for the bath and beach. Angel the caretaker is the best. He is full of info, can make any arrangements for you and is around as much or as little as you want. His wife is a great cook and we always make sure we hire her for at least one dinner - homemade tortillas, beans, rice and chicken bbq'd island style! We did some diving with the Utila Lodge (the best) and had some good times taking the water taxi (which is a 3 minute walk from the house with a $2 round trip price) to Coral Beach Village. It is a "must do while on Utila" and a great place to spend the day laying on the best beach on the island, snorkeling and having a great lunch and cocktails from Neptunes Beach Bar & Grill. Bottom line - any house or place will have some problems but there were none that will keep you from having a great time."

"We spent five days here after nine days in Honduras for a missions trip. We were exhausted and really needed to relax! Also, it was near our 40th wedding anniversary and we wanted some romance! The weather was perfect, the house was comfortable, the view and snorkeling were amazing. The caretaker, Andy, was very helpful, as was the owner, Kurt. Both gave us lots of information and helped us make arrangements for anything we needed. Andy arranged for a golf cart rental and rides to/from the dock and airport. We didn't use the AC at all, because of the nightly breeze. Sitting on the deck was our favorite thing to do. It was amazing to be able to walk down the back stairs and directly into the water. The reef is full of beautiful fish and live coral, so the snorkeling is amazing. We want to go back tomorrow!"

"Life's a Beach was very comfortable for our family of 4. We loved the location! It was a little rocky to access the ocean, but then the snorkeling was great. We loved driving around in our golf cart and enjoyed being a bit out of town. The property was clean, and well stocked. The new washer/dryer were very much appreciated. We spent nice time as a family on the front porch overlooking the ocean."
