    A week in Paradise

    We just got back from a wonderful trip! The house was perfect for our dive vacation to Utila. The home is in a peaceful area, but just a few minutes to town. The reef in the backyard is just a minute swim from shore and the outdoor shower was very useful to rise off afterwards. Angel the caretaker is awesome. One night we had his wife come in and teach us to cook Honduras dishes and then our two families had a great dinner together. We never needed to turn on the air conditioners in the bedrooms, since there was always a great breeze coming off the ocean which keeps the house cool. Plus it also keeps any bugs away! We never needed bug spray at all for the week. I am a big "foodie" and the kitchen is very well equipped and was perfect for cooking the great local tuna that we would buy off the dock in town from "Zoro" a local fisherman. Each night we would eat dinner on the outdoor deck and listen to the ocean. The internet in the house is excellent and the beds are very comfortable. Can't wait to return in the future!

    Beautiful!

    Beautiful place that’s right on the ocean. Snorkeling was amazing right off the beach. Angel was such a big help and easy to contact. It was just far enough out of town that it gave us all the privacy we could ever want. Everyone was so friendly. All in all a very relaxing vacation.

    The location was superb & also the house itself. However, the washing machine, drier, & refrigerator were not acceptable for the rate we are paying. Also the water pressure was non existent. When you walk into the laundry room, you want to strip off all the bedding & towels to rewash. The air conditioning unit in the main living area & one of the bedrooms did not work. Plumbing fixtures are worn out & leaking. Could not use the hair drier because it was full of water that leaked from sink into bottom cabinet. All beddings need an upgrade.

    A beautiful location right on the water!

    Escape from it all! I loved my stay at the Sandy Bay Beachfront house! The local Tuk-Tuk driver didn't know where it was when I got off the ferry, but just tell them to go to Relapse and keep driving another 5 minutes up the road toward Blue Bayou - no problem. I snorkeled right off the back patio and saw a green moray eel, spotted eagle rays and tons of fish. The reef is right there and awesome. Eli was super responsive before going to the property and Angel was there on island to handle anything that came up right away. It's nice to be a 5 minute walk to the edge of town and about a 15 minute walk (or 5 minute bike ride) to the center of town. If I return to Utila, I will definitely stay here again.

    Great location, plenty of space, great for families or a few couples

    My husband, myself, and five of our friends stayed at this property for a few days in the middle of September. Eli was very easy to get in contact with in the weeks leading up to our stay. The house is as pictured and provided plenty of space. We really enjoyed the large porch that overlooked the water. Our friends stayed in the main house and my husband and I stayed in the apartment found below. The house was much nicer/cleaner so we only spent time in the apartment to sleep. The weekend we visited was very hot and the air conditioning in the house did not provide much relief. Angel, the caretaker, attempted to fix one of the units but it was still pretty uncomfortable. I think we got unlucky as there wasn't much of a breeze and that probably would have helped to cool the house down. The location of the house is wonderful - about a 10 minute walk to Chepe's Beach and in a nice, quiet area. All in all, we enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay at the property again.

    Beautiful ocean front home is clean, comfortable and well maintained

    Angel, the caretaker was there to meet us after dark and took great care of us. Everything you need in a home is provided, except shampoo, which we bought at the grocery store. The home is large and comfortable, but difficult to keep cool. We went scuba diving each morning and closed up the house for security reasons and by the time we got back it was quite warm. We used the AC in the bedrooms at night, one worked better than the other. We enjoyed sitting on the ocean front deck and watching the hummingbirds and the waves. The reef is a great place to snorkel. The house is a bit of a walk to town, but the tuk-tuk taxis cruise the streets and its only a $2-3 ride. The house is situated on a quiet strip of beach away from the noise of the town. We dove with Coral View Resort and would recommend them. They are a short walk from the house. Hans is the dive shop manager, Rocky was our captain and Amude was our dive master and even gave us a tour of the island and guided us on a hike up Pumpkin Hill. It was just our family on the boat, which was great. We would see other dive boats loaded with people. All in all, a great vacation.

    Beachfront Beauty

    After hours of travel it was wonderful to be greeted off of the Utila Dream by Angelito! He was warm and welcoming. He brought us to the house and made sure that we were comfortable. He checked in with us daily to do the same. Snorkeling off the beach right at the house was amazing! The town is charming and the people are so happy and kind! A must visit is the Chocolate Company! The Mango Tango had excellent food with the Sunday Special: eggs benedict. The beaches are beautiful. You can walk into town from the house. I cannot say enough good things about Angelito! From the moment we arrived to the moment he left us at the airport we were made to feel like family! We will be back!

    You are missing out!

    From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left we had an amazing time! Eli was extremely responsive to all of my questions...Angel was just a gem. I highly recommend the golf cart rental from Eli, it was a life saver, mostly at night for dinner, but certainly helpful when we went to the market. It was very peaceful and serene. Eli’s place is close to town, yet far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. The kayaks were an amazing plus! We will definitely be back to Utila, and if all things work out, back at Eli’s house!
