Huge 5 Bed, 3 Bath Home With Private Dock And World's Largest Float Room!

Watch the sun rise and frigates soar over the sea from your wrap-around porch, coffee in hand. Snorkel with tropical fish off the island's most beautifully designed private dock, or practice morning yoga under pink and orange clouds. In the lull of the afternoon, spend a blissful hour in the world's largest flotation tank, Float Utila, now exclusively for Cay House guests. In the evening, make dinner in your spacious and bright kitchen with panoramic windows overlooking the sparkling sea. Enjoy a cocktail and watch the sun sink below the horizon from the porch hammocks, and fall asleep to the sound of lapping water in a king sized bed hanging from the ceiling. Walking distance to every dive shop, restaurant and attraction in town, yet removed from the busy road, the Cay House is on its very own private island/cay connected to the world by a drawbridge. Built in the '80s and renovated from the ground up by second owner, Norwegian carpenter John Arne Loken, the Cay House is perfectly located for the best sunrises, sunsets, and views of the mainland's stunning Pico Bonito Mountain Range across the water on clear days.

                                                                This is the best home on the island. It is right in the middle of everything Utila has to offer. We came to Utila with our 3 adult children and 80 year-old mother for the Christmas/New Years holiday and it was absolutely perfect. The room on the main level was ideal for my mother, while giving our 3 children their own rooms upstairs. My husband and I took the master suite upstairs with the hanging bed, and let me tell you, it was amazing. The float tank was icing on the cake. We each used it several times and loved it. Not only was the house clean and comfortable with stunning views, it truly is the best home on the island. Utila is a hidden gem. People are so friendly, honest and very helpful. The golf cart that we rented was perfect to get around to the other side of the island. Tina and JJ, the property managers, were always available if we needed them, and gave us great recommendations for restaurants, grocery shopping, and just about everything you can think of. They even had our golf cart ready at the house for us upon arrival. The booking process was simple and Amanda (the home owner) was always quick to answer our questions during the booking process. This truly was an amazing home and we will most definitely return. Thank you so much for the memories!

                                                                I came with a group of 6 and we had a fabulous time at the Cay House. All communications before and during our stay were timely and super helpful. JJ even helped us get back to Roatan kind of last minute since the Ferry wasn't running the day of our departure. We enjoyed a lot of hammock time on the deck as well as the float tank. We definitely weren't ready to leave and look forward to coming back!

                                                                Great location. We were able to walk next door to Captain Morgans dive shop each morning as well as easily get wherever we wanted to go. Note, Captain Morgans had a great breakfast. The house is very comfortable and spacious. We thoroughly enjoyed evenings on the back deck with a glass of wine and the cross breeze. Spectacular view of the ocean. Tina and JJ were fantastic. From providing information and connections before we arrived to meeting us at the airport to helping us navigate a last minute change in getting off the island, they made themselves available for whatever we needed. Thank you for sharing your house with us.

                                                                We rented this amazing house with 5 friends to celebrate a milestone birthday. The location is PERFECT, you can walk to everything. Some nights the dive shops next door can get a little loud with their parties but nothing we couldn't live with. Swimming off the dock, having coffee on the porch while watching the sun come up. The kitchen was wonderful and you can find most items you'll need at the local grocery stores. 5 beautiful bedrooms. I must admit the hanging bed in the master bedroom was hard to adjust to (I was sick upon arrival) but by the end I really enjoyed it. When we return, This is where we will rent this again, can't imagine staying anywhere else. It was the most relaxing week I've had in a very long time. Highly recommend!!!

                                                                8 of us stayed the last week at the Yellow Cay house. Beautiful home with amazing water views from every room. Lovely breezes that flow throughout the home. We spent most of our time on the porch and decks. Loved the flotation room and rain shower downstairs. This home is close to everything but just far enough over the water to not hear much traffic off the main road. We rented golf carts and toured the whole island. We were able to park them right on the back deck of the home. The only thing I wished was there were a couple of throw blankets for the beds. We would definitely return again. JJ and Tina were most helpful as well our entire stay. So fun to see another Okie couple in paradise.

                                                                Beautiful big house with a very nice deck to sit on when it is too rainy to play.

                                                                Amanda, the owner, got right back to us about any questions we had. We were met at the airport by the property managers, JJ and Tina. They were great about saying that we could contact them night or day if we needed them. We had no issues just a wonderful time.
