Property description

Summer Special - Reserve a week or more for 3 guests and the 4th stays free! Larger groups and longer stay save even more! Send us an inquiry for your quote.

Casa de Playa, just twenty minutes from the town of Utila, and reached by BOAT ACCESS ONLY, is situated on the edge of the Caribbean Sea, amid two-and-a-half private acres of groomed beaches and manicured gardens. You can be in the water less than a minute after getting out of bed! Waking up to the sounds of the sea washing ashore, birds twittering and the occasional boat passing makes Casa de Playa a true 'getaway'. You immediately feel at home the moment you enter.

CNN recently named Utila one of the '15 Best Islands You've Never Heard Of' (July 7, 2013)

Casa de Playa can provide sleeping accommodations for as many as fifteen guests. The double-decker dock features a newly renovated chompa (thatched) roof and offers open areas for sunbathing, stargazing, swimming, snorkeling and plenty of space for informal get-togethers.

Some of the features of Casa de Playa include a large, modern kitchen, with everything you'll need to feed your group, air conditioning throughout, a large upstairs deck and downstairs patio with plenty of comfort for relaxing and outdoor dining.

Let us pre-provision the house with your favorite foods and beverages prior to arrival, so you don't waste precious vacation time shopping. We can also arrange meals in-house or provide food delivery.

Some of the excursions and activities available include trips to Utila's own deserted island (Water Cay), scuba diving with Utila Cays Diving - #1-rated dive shop, snorkeling, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, trips to U-town, and many more activities.

World-class diving and snorkeling, excursions to uninhabited beaches or activities such as horseback-riding, bonfires, or just melting into a puddle of relaxed bliss will make your stay at Casa de Playa an unforgettable vacation of a lifetime.

Casa de Playa is uniquely suited to provide the perfect setting for weddings, reunions, holiday gatherings, corporate retreats and meetings and many other events. With nearby sister properties, we can accommodate up to thirty people in a few hundred yards of beachfront, making it ideal for any size gathering.

Casa de Playa is designed so that up to 3 different groups of visitors traveling together can have some down-time in their own private space. The upstairs house can accommodate up to 9 guests in 3 bedrooms and a loft. The bedrooms feature beautiful antique and eclectic furnishings, with the master bedroom having an en-suite bathroom with whirlpool tub, and the other bedrooms share a full bathroom. The loft can accommodate up to 3 guests in one double and one single futon. Downstairs features a separate entry with 2 one-bedroom 'studios', each with a double bed, a single bed and en-suite bathroom, and the studios share an efficiency kitchen. We do not split the house between different bookings, but if you have a large group of travelers in your group, you have several options in sleeping arrangements.

We provide transportation from your arrival point on Utila island to Casa de Playa, as well as your return trip upon departure (one transfer each way included, no night transfers). Other boat trips can easily be arranged through your concierge team.

For a peaceful, relaxing stay, come see why we say 'This must be the place'.
