For those wanting intimate privacy, we have constructed an upscale, stand alone Cottage located within the privacy fence that surround the property. This Cottage is ideal for a couple wanting to get away from it all, yet have all of the amenities needed to feel pampered and at home. Custom cabinets in the kitchen were designed with ergonomics in mind making the kitchen immanently usable. The bathroom boasts a full height shower with ceramic tile with marble inserts and a glass block divider. The pedestal sink with wall mounted mirror/vanity optimizes good usage of space and and glass block recessed into the wall provides ambient light. The Cottage has quickly become a favorite with guests of The Gardens!
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.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We are well known on the island, having been retired here for years. We have somehow become 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 our 40' sailboat, traveling to other countries, visiting our children 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. So far, it seems to be working rather well!
Why the Owner Chose Utila, Honduras (City):
Utila is where we live and we're not going anywhere, so... when this building came on the market a mere 125 paces from our home it seemed like it was ready made for us. We purchased the building and started a light remodel immediately, including the renovation of one building into The Cottage that we designed around an intimate place that we would like to stay in!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The Gardens is in a very quiet setting with a 6 foot privacy fence around the entire property. Security lighting is 24 hours for the comfort of our guests and the private deck attached is just that; private. Being close to 'downtown', but not in it means the five minute walk to Main Street is just enough to keep the hustle and bustle of traffic, noise, and congestion at bay. The Gardens is not just a box with a bed in one corner, it is a home away from home!
