First time in Utila!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this beautiful home and the rental process was wonderful! Very easy to communicate with owners prior to arrival and once we arrived Blanca was so helpful (stocked the house with requested essentials, met us at ferry dock, was available if we needed anything throughout stay), although the house is so well equipped we didn't need or want for anything. Coral Ridge house is beautiful, inside and outside and so comfortable (the beds!!) and the kitchen has absolutely everything you need (most impressive were the good quality and SHARP knives - which we never find at rental homes). By far the best part is the patio - the comfy rocking chairs and hammocks, the ocean breeze and THE VIEWS!! Honestly the best on the island and we enjoyed our time on the patio day and night. Outdoor shower and gear washing station were also so appreciated and convenient for shore dives and snorkeling. We really can't say enough about how much we loved staying at Coral Ridge House - and now we totally understand why our daughter came to Utila 6 months ago and hasn't come home yet. We can't wait to come back again soon!

Very nice villa.

  • 5 of 5

Villa is almost new, well maintained, clean, and very nicely decorated. We particularly appreciated the well equipped kitchen... an abundance of high quality pots and pans, mixing bowls, and tupperware... much better than you find in most rental villas.

The villa is a nice compromise of being out in the quieter Trade Winds subdivision, but only a 10 min walk to the start of the "town" area. It is right on the ocean with a nearly constant easterly wind providing a cool breeze on the deck and welcoming surf action. Also, the deck has high quality solid wood rocking chairs enhancing the outdoor usability and ambiance.

Blanca is the local property manager and was extremely prompt in answering any of our questions or helping with special requests.

Fabulous, beautiful, well appointed, comfy.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in the lower studio apartment previously. I was returning to Utila with a gal pal and we opted for two bedroom. We were so not disappointed! Lovely lovely space and every thing we needed. Mark and Stephen communicated with us during the week. Blanca is a God-send. We love Utila and this property never fails us. Thank you again guys!

I cannot say enough about our experience at this beautiful home on Utila! To say the owners were accmmodating would be an understatement! So very easy to work with and extremely hospitable. The house is FABULOUS! It has everything we needed to for our stay, and more. It is very comfortable and spacious. The porch and hammocks are awesome! The view from the porch is breathtaking! Blanca, the property manager on the Island, is incredible. She met us at the ferry, and from then to the end of our stay was in communication with us every day, and was there for us if we needed anything. Especially the first couple of days, we did not make it to the Island with our luggage, so Blanca was a huge help to us getting our essentials. She is an absolute Gem! The owners provided us with a wealth of information about the island in a notebook; places to visit, wonderful restaurants, etc.

If we could give this property 10 stars, we would! We can't wait to go back!

Thank you Mark, Stephen, and Blanca!!

Mark, Stephen and Blanca have put together a vacation home package you do not want to miss; in fact, it is a package to be modeled. Contact with Mark and Stephen is quick and complete, from initial e-mail inquiry to follow-up telephone contact. And Blanca -- pre-arrival e-mails are answered within a few hours, and on-site telephone calls, with the provided mobile telephone, are answered immediately; Blanca has the answer to any question you can think of. Blanca had all of the pick-up arrangements ready when we arrived at the Utila Aeroporto, including a prompt transport into town (with a quick stop at the local grocery store (Bush's) for a few items), before delivery to the Coral Ridge House .. and what a house. Ten metres separates you from the launching point to three amazing dive sites, only eighty-or-so metres off-shore. The inside of the house is splendidly furnished, from the deep-pile throw rug in the living room area, to the locally-sourced wood kitchen cabinets and granite counter-tops, complete with appliances and utensils, from a six-burner gas stove, to a blender for your drinks. And, we cannot forget to mention the memory foam mattresses in the bedrooms, and the walk-in shower in the master bathroom, beach towels, linens, tile floors... the list goes on-and-on. Mark and Stephen have done a great job in providing a jumping-off point to 'fun-in-the-sun', with the location of the house to Utila Town activities, front door diving, and a heart-pounding living-room theatre set-up, with internet and satellite access to loads of entertainment. As advertised, the house is just far enough removed from town to wind-down and enjoy peace and serenity, yet within a 15 minute walk to be in town-center (five minute ride in the local cab, a 'tuk-tuk'. The whole house has air conditioning, but other than for sleeping, the Tradewind breeze keeps the house comfortable during the day and evenings, with the added benefit of seeing and hearing the ocean through the double french doors, which line the beachfront side of the house; a view with 180 degree visibility of the ocean. Better than any pre-packaged resort vacation. Absolutely, outstanding; thank you ever so much!

The trip of a life time and we thank Mark and Stephen for all the tips they gave us. Deny Bush with Bush Adventures was great and thanks to him, we were able to check off one big thing off our bucket list and that was swimming with a beautiful creature of the sea the whale shark. Our studio apt. was beautiful and was just what we needed. You could not find anything better for a couple and we loved setting outside with our morning coffee watching the Caribbean ocean with all its beautiful colors and of course the most gorgeous sunrise ever. The reef is right out front and on a calm day we snorkeled out to it. The house is far enough from the little town to enjoy quiet evenings and close enough to walk too if you wish. The furnishing of the apt. is high end and the bed was the most comfortable I ever slept in. We have travel many places in the Caribbean and never return to the same place because of so many beautiful places to see but this Island and Coral Ridge House is one place we will visit again. Thanks so much to Blanca for making sure we are taken care of and Mark and Stephen for building such a fabulous home.
