The space
The Sandy Bay Beach-front House is a beautiful "island-style" private residence with just under 2000 SF of open floor plan and 90 ft of beach front. This quality built home features a large gathering room in the middle
with vaulted ceilings and mahogany floors. The modern kitchen with breakfast bar opens to the spacious living room surrounded by windows on all sides! You'll be hard pressed to find a better value in Utila or the Caribbean.

On both sides of the house are identical bedrooms with 2 twin beds that can be converted to a King size bed upon your request to provide you with more options and comfort. Each bedroom has a private, full bath and double french doors leading to the main deck views. The home is great for 2 couples and the kids can sleep on the queen sleeper sofa, or for more privacy, rent the downstairs apartment. This fully furnished home features a wrap around deck that's great for viewing the sunsets over the rear Oyster Bay Lagoon on one side and sunrise over Utila Bay and the peaks of mainland Honduras on the other.

Below the main house is a separate 300 SF 1 bdrm/1 bath apartment facing the front beach and water. This is rented separately, but can be included for larger groups when available. The apartment has a full bed, private bath, a full kitchen, sitting area, french doors leading to the front beach and lot's of windows to catch the breezes. There is also a large bodega that stores the mountain bikes and washer/dryer.

Guest access
You can either rent the main house (2 beds & 2 baths), the apartment (1bed & 1 bath) or all together. You will have sole and private access to whatever space you rent

Other things to note
We have just purchased 2 kayaks and 2 paddle boards that are free to use for our guests. We recommend taking down your own snorkel and fishing gear but they can be easily found on the island. Just ask our caretaker, Angelito, and he will be happy to help you!

Location

Utila, Honduras

The Sandy Bay Beach House is positioned on the leeward or south side of Utila Island. Utila is the smallest, most westerly and one of three of the Bay Islands just off the coast of Honduras (Just East of Belize & South of Key West). Utila is a low key paradise off the touristy path that is quickly becoming the meeting place for divers from all over the world searching for the next “secret” destination.This diving destination is routinely voted as the best value in the Caribbean.

Our house is located on a peninsula in Sandy Bay. Our home probably has the best location for catching most of the year’s enjoyable trade winds that keep you cool and the bugs away. We are just a 5 min bike ride west of Utila Town; however, we are just far enough away from the hustle & bustle of the main tourist areas. A mile ride will bring you to the beginning of town, built in charming Key West style along the harbor. You’ll ride past the many dive shops, restaurants, grocery stores, bars, hotels and Utilians going about they’re daily routines.

The home’s wrap around deck provides spectacular views of the bay, mountains of the mainland, town, reef system and lagoon. Snorkel from the front door to great reefs less than 300 yards in front of the house. It’s not uncommon to see dolphin, eagle rays and bonefish from the deck. Our home is virtually sitting on top of technicolor coral reefs & 20 coconut throws away from the famous Laguna Beach Resort.

We are a blended family of 4 with 2 kids now getting ready for college. We love hiking, thrill seeking, traveling, all sports (especially tennis), trying new restaurants, camping, dog parks, movies, concerts, etc. We've been in the Springs since 94' and earlier so we have a lot of favorite spots and recommendations. My wife, Jen, speaks fluent Spanish & some Italian in case that’s of help. I only speak English. :) I have been flipping homes, custom renovations, building new and providing real estate brokerage services for about 15 years now. We have quite a few short & long term rental residential & commercial buildings in town with a great crew that keeps everything running smooth. Just let me know if you have any questions about where to eat, what to do, etc. and I'll be more than happy to help you out!

During your stay
Angelito has been our caretaker for years. He's awesome! He will meet you at the airport or ferry dock and take you to the home if you wish. He can also help coordinate a cook, cleaner, babysitter, kayaks, diving, boat to the Cays or whatever you want. He is very good at answering his cell phone if you should need him for an emergency. I should also be available for any additional questions during your stay if needed.
