About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
Laguna Vista is a premier upscale vacation rental on Utila, a small island often called 'The Rose of the Caribbean'.
Laguna Vista is a the only vacation rental on the entire island that provides you not only the privacy you need from your work a day world in a fully found 2 bedroom home away from home, but also your own private swimming pool, champa, and bar that will allow you to rejuvenate your spirits with as much or as little interaction with the outside world as you might see fit.
The Rental: At the pools edge is your private entry into your home with two bedrooms each with a private bathroom, both with queen sized beds, ample, locking closet space, private personal safes, air conditioners, ceiling fans and upgraded linens inviting you to relax in style.
A bright and airy living area complete, with color cable television, DVD player, and a custom built sofa bed for an unexpected guest offers comforts seldom found in the island's rental market.
The residence is also complete with a full size kitchen, including all the accouterments needed to prepare everything from a quick microwave snack to a gourmet meal from the grill top or from the oven.
The Grounds: Just a step outside of your door is the sweet water pool for your exclusive use; Laguna Vista boasts a glass mosaic freeform custom designed and built swimming pool for your pleasure.
Designed by your hosts and built by Watermania, this is a pool built to enjoy. A grand staircase allows for graceful entry into the pool even with a cool beverage in your hand.
With a standard depth throughout allowing any and all to wander about, this is a social gathering area unsurpassed in Utila vacation rentals. Benches designed into the walls are perfect for conversation gathering points, with one including Jacuzzi jets for a simulating back massage at your pleasure. A waterfall adds the pleasing sound of relaxation to complete your experience.
When you're ready to step out and dry off, you can sit in the comfort of a private champa at the water’s edge that shields you not only from the sun, but is perfect for anything from quiet reading time to a jovial atmosphere or even for a private party.
The champa, with a non-skid terra cotta floor, has indirect lighting, ceiling fans, flow through ventilation, and plenty of seating to provide after pool enjoyment.
If you desire, a private bar can be set up in a matter of minutes for your convenience or to entertain should you have guests.
We strive to make your vacation as effortless as possible. Standard services include arranging pick up and return to your point of origin on the island, and provisioning and stocking prior to your arrival, if requested. Massage is available onsite for those wishing to indulge, and yoga mats are available upon request.
For those wanting to enjoy the diving that Utila is famous for we can provide a private dive boat with personal professional Dive Masters/IDC Instructors, or special arrangements can be made with select qualified local dive shops to include you in their groups. Certification in Diving is available from Beginner all the way to Advanced using Drager™ Dolphin Rebreathers and Closed Circuit Units. Diving alternatives such as horseback riding, boating, sailing charters, 4 wheel excursions or guided nature walks are only a request away. Laguna Vista also has access to the best in Catch and Release Deep Sea Fishing Charters, having custom boats on call with Captains who know and fish the sea surrounding the Bay Islands.
Laundry and maid service is available. This is your vacation, let Laguna Vista make the most of it for you!

Additionally, deep sea fishing can be arranged utilizing either local dorys or custom marlin rigs!
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are well known on the island, having been retired here for years. We have somehow known as 'Tony & Jo' as if it was one name! Between having properties that we rent and being involved in the community at large we still find time for traveling to other countries, visiting our children abroad and living the lifestyle that is Utila. We ended up in the hospitality industry by accident and have enjoyed it ever since we got our first hotel on the island. Not knowing anything at all about the service industry we simply decided to use a plan based on what WE liked about some of the places we've stayed in around the world. We now own Utila Vacation Rentals, an enterprise we started because a number of our friends started asking us to rent their properties for them, as well.
Why the Owner Chose Utila, Honduras (City):
We purchased this property following a visit with Tony & Jo whilst they were in Canada visiting family, who are also our dear friends. At that time we had no interest in purchasing another property, and in fact had never even heard of Utila! After hearing about the lives and the lifestyle that they enjoy we knew it would be right for us, too, and we purchased Laguna Vista. Our subsequent visits to the our Tropical island home have validated our decision many times over. There is a certain lifestyle that is Utila, and it is the lifestyle we want to enjoy in our retirement. We are now set to do just that when the time is right!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The most unique benefit of our home in the Tropics is having the custom pool literally right out of the front door and the custom champa just steps from the pool. In Canada private pools are few and far between, especially in our province, and to have one at the ready at any time of the year is remarkable to us. The fact that the property is maintained and upgraded constantly by Tony & Jo has made it a unique addition to our portfolio, and a boon to us and our guests! Being within walking distance to the heart of town yet just far enough to be out of the hustle and bustle makes this perfect for us, and we think our guests will appreciate the same things!
