About Property Manager
La Mayur was founded in 2012 by two intrepid global travelers from Canada, with an insatiable taste for adventure and who are committed to the conservation and preservation of Utila. Peacocks breed in Quiebra Piedra,the Botanical Garden adjacent to La Mayur and the birds are a beautiful sight from La Mayur. Mayur in Sanskrit means “Peacock” whose exotic beauty captured our minds on our very first visit to Utila, hence the name La Mayur. Wrapped in the cool embrace of Pumpkin Hill, lush vegetation of Quiebra Piedra, the Botanical Garden, and view of the Caribbean sea, the ambience that the cottage exudes is irresistibly appealing to every lover of Nature. As the daylight spills across your bed, awaken to a divers paradise or plan to make it a theme wedding destination. La Mayur is a proud supporter of the local community. Proceeds from your stay support the local schools

We rented the house for a week in mid March. The house was large. When we got off the ferry there was a gentleman holding a sign with our name on it. He did not speak english and we speak very little Spanish. This is the first time that I have rented a property that a property manager did not come to let us know the ins and outs of the house. The master bedroom bed is so hard that my husband and I would wake in the night hurting. The kitchen needs a good deep cleaning.The coffee pot did not work, we were going to buy one but could not find one on the island. The outside was nice and well kept and the pool was nice to relax in. The property is located in a nice quiet area. We did find a few tarantula in the house.
We are doing our best to keep the home to American lifestyle standards, however Utila is part of an island life style. We apologise for any inconvenience, but the beds have hard mattresses to help people have a good night sleep after a lot of outdoor activities like scuba diving, helps people with any back problems. Coffee pots could fail anytime however it has been replaced.
Home away from home
My three teenager children visited Utila and stayed at La Mayur from July 30, to August 7, 2016. La Mayur is absolutely beautiful with a wonderful view. We were very impressed by the house and the surroundings. La Mayur is located within walking distance of the town yet is so calm and peaceful, surrounded by lush greenery providing a wonderful ambiance. My children finished their diving course in Utila and got their PADI certification. They are looking forward to their next trip and want to stay at La Mayur. We all loved staying in La Mayur for all that it has to offer. The property and is well maintained, the landscaping is beautiful and the swimming pool is clean and well maintained in which my kids had a blast. La Mayur is perfect in every aspect and we were happy, relaxed and comfortable as if in our own home. Highly Recommend.
If relaxation and tranquility are what you're looking for in your vacation to Utila then this is the perfect Location. The views from the balconies and deck is fantastic, a great spot to relax and enjoy your morning coffee. The location is far enough from town to be peaceful and quiet but close enough to walk to restaurants and shopping. The pool is perfect for relaxing and cooling off when the sun gets a little too hot, but if the beach is what you enjoy, it is just a 15 minute walk to the public beach or a short ride in a tuk-tuk taxi for about $1 per person.
There were six adults in our group for our three-week stay. We rented a golf cart and explored the island, rented quads to go up Pumpkin Hill to enjoy the fabulous views from there. We took a tour to Water Cays for snorkeling and spent a day at Neptune snorkeling, swimming and just relaxing on the beach. We only wish we had found this treasure a little sooner so that we could have spent more time there. Would recommend anyone staying in Utila check out Neptunes.
The locals are friendly and make you feel welcome and at home wherever you go. We got to know some of them quite well & we're sorry to say goodbye to them. The property manager, Shelby McNabb, was very friendly and accommodating and helped make our stay a pleasant one.
We would definitely recommend this house to anyone wishing to visit Utila.
We hope to see you again on your next vacation. Thanks for staying at our Island Paradise cottage
It was nice besides the pool was a bit green most of the time, it was a little ways from town, and we found 3
Teranchulers in the house!!!!! But it was a nice house great for group of people!
Great Utila House
Great place. Mini-pool was fabulous for everyone in our party of 9 with infants, kids, teenagers and adults. About 10 min downhill walk to town and 20mins to public beach. Excellent quiet location. Recommend!

La Mayur is located beyond The Mango Inn, just past BICA on Hibiscus Road. and approx 0.5 Km away or a 6 minutes walk from the center of town but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to allow for privacy.
