  • Would defiinitely go back, but some pointers ...

    "First off, I would definitely go back. The house is spacious and well maintained in general. The amenities are great, again in general. Snorkelling off the beach in front is fabulous. And the gentleman who looks after the house is absolutely wonderful. However, the internet access was slow and at the very least needs to have a password put on it. I refused to use it for business due to that insecurity. The AC unit in one of the bedrooms didn't work at first and it wasn't all the effective when it do work. It made a difference, but it never got cooler than "quite warm" even with all doors and windows to the bedrooms closed and the AC on all night when we slept. The golf cart has a few tricks you need to be aware of to keep it going, and the headlight didn't work the entire time we were there. So overall I'd say the place is great but it deserves to have the level of care stepped up a notch. Having said that, remember that I would definitely go back. One solid tip - you really need to rent the golf cart. It's a good 20 minute walk to town depending on what part you want to access. And a final tip - if you snorkel off the beach in front, angle toward the right for easier access to deeper water. If you go straight out there are lots of shallows to get through and it's tough to avoid the coral. Enjoy!"

  • MAGICAL, PERFECT, LUXURIOUS SNORKEL BEACH HOUSE FOR COUPLES OR FAMILIES ALIKE!!!

    "When you stay at Pineapple House, you will experience the best Utila has to offer!!! With its spacious, tall cathedral ceiling in the great room, modern appliances, spacious bedrooms, sumptuous bathrooms, incredible wrap-around deck; Pineapple House has everything that a family or couple needs!!! It is perfectly described in the ad; Pineapple House is a perfect home! It is spotlessly clean, with warm, wood floors, and lovely furniture! The water is only steps away from the house! You can snorkel for hours right in front of your home in near privacy on pristine reefs that are filled with an array of fish and marine life. Every morning, my husband and I had our coffee on the lovely dock, and saw a myriad of fish from a moral eel to a small squid to a spotted sting ray swim by! You can enter the water from the beach, and step into a world of blue, illuminated by the sun, and perfect coral heads! Dozens of juvenile and adult angels, parrot fish, bait fish, puffers and so many more varieties of tropical fish will greet you just seconds away from the wrap around porch!!! Every morning we were greeted with the singing of the birds, and the sound of the surf! At night, you can look up and see a myriad of stars in the sky! Utila is reknown for its snorkeling; but we found the people of Utila to be its true treasure!! The people we met started out as vacation friends; but now are family, in our hearts! Dave and Trish Steffan were the perfect hosts; attentive to our every need, and always ready to schedule any activity that we wanted. They not only served as our guide to Utila; but also treated us as family. They were perfect!! Our boat captain, Mr. Herman, was incredible!!!! With his warm smile and perfect skill at piloting a boat; he made every trip special and beautiful. Mr. Herman made our trips to town, snorkeling at Water Cay and Turtle Harbor, our day at Neptune Beach, and our fishing trip the highlights of our stay!!! He is not only a one of a kind captain; but also a unique, warm, and caring one of a kind person. He, to us, symbolizes the beauty of Utila, with his warm laugh, great smile, and great perspective about life on Utila. If you go to Utila, you must meet Mr. Herman. He is very special!!! Native Utilians Alexander and Orlando, showed us the real beauty of Utila with their attentiveness, sense of humor, and story telling. You will never forget this special island or his beautiful vacation getaway, the Pineapple House!!!"

  • family vacation

    "We had our big family vacation this year in this beautiful villa in Utila. We were a total of 11 people with 6 adults and 5 children. There was more than enough room for all of us. The rooms were large, clean and the air conditioners worked wonderfully. Kids spent hours in the pool while we enjoyed the incredible view from the back porch. The island offered some of the best snorkeling and diving spots in the whole world but there was even plenty of snorkeling to be done from right in front of the house. We got to see eels and stingrays along with other tropical fish right in front of the house. It was truly amazing. The house had WiFi and US satellite TV to keep us in contact with home. Town is 5 minutes golf cart ride away. We felt very safe throughout the stay. Blanca went out of her to make sure we had an incredible vacation."
