The best rental in the island!
"From the moment we landed on Utila Tony and Jo were the hosts with the most! We arrived early in the morning with a warm welcome and big smile, the house was very clean with all you need to a perfect vacations, we brought our groceries in order to cook, the kitchen was fully equipped, we even cooked pizza and we had a grill night, Tony & Jo are the best Hosts, they really effort in give you everything you need, the house is great and is in a little quite neighborhood far enough of main town but not too far, we walk every day to the party at night. Fully recommended."

"My husband, 12 yr old son and I were very well looked after by Sue and Angel. Sue helped us arrange transportation from Roatan by air and Angel picked us up at the airport and get some groceries for the first couple of days. We were in Utila to get our dive certification and the house was conveniently located two minutes walk from the dive center. We checked out some of the restaurants in town as well as cooked at home. We were there the week leading up to Easter weekend so the road in front of the property was probably a lot busier than it usually is. The house is well kept, quite beautiful with all the natural wood and the open air design is so wonderful. I would recommend this property and if in Utila again, would definitely be talking to Sue. Would recommend a vegetable peeler for the utensil drawer :D!!"

"Initially we booked Blue Bayou Beach House for 5 nights. We were attracted by the location right next to the coral reefs and of course an affordable price. And we weren't disappointed. The house has a beautiful porch from where you can hum right into the corals. Just outside the house is a great wall with the most amazing corals. Lots of coral fishes. The house is a bit rustic, however charming. There is though one nuisance: Sand flies! You don't notice them, before it's too late. You don't see them, you don't feel, when they bite, but you will seen see the impact of them on your body. So be advised to take need precautions (repellents, baby oil,...).
Before making the booking, we had a very positive correspondence with the owners, Deanna and Ed. Very responsive and very helpful. We felt confident throughout the engagement with Deanna and Ed. On the island we were welcomed by Mike, who is kind of a janitor, and he made sure we were put on a taxi (or rather a tuc-tuc) to take us to the beach house. Mike also made sure, everything was ok during our stay. Thanks a lot to Mike!!
We enjoyed our stay at Blue Bayou Beach House very much, and we actually extended with it another 2 nights. There are lots of things to do on Utila. Definitely a place to return to...."

"We rented The Gardens for a month. The Gardens was an upgrade from where I (Bob) stayed on a previous trip. I "discovered" the Gardens through a friend who was staying there at the time and I made a mental note that when I brought Holly to Utila, this would be where we should stay. But we think Leon and Jim in their review have pretty much said it all. Tony and Jo went far and beyond the call of duty. They ensured we arrived safely when our transportation was delayed. They took us for tours around the island showing us excellent restaurants and joining us for the entertainment. In fact, in some respects they were the entertainment! They helped us see Utila as a friendly community. When I (Holly)had issues at home that needed to be addressed immediately, Jo and Toni were incredibly accommodating and wonderfully supportive . They even made my (Holly's) departure special and memorable.
Because of all our email traffic before coming we felt like we were meeting old friends on arrival. But we felt like we were leaving family when we departed."
