The Round House

The "Round" House is a beautiful private home situated on 180 feet of Caribbean beachfront with mountain views of the Honduran mainland and Oyster Lagoon (aka Lower Lagoon). The dock access is in Oyster Lagoon and is just behind the house. The beach gently slopes into Utila Bay, with coral reef the full length of the beach and an 80 foot drop off less than 300 yards from the house, providing a beautiful area to swim, snorkel, and shore dive. This fully equipped home with two bedrooms is perfect for two couples or a family.

The house features a wrap around deck, extending 8 feet on the bay side, perfect for watching the sunset over the lagoon and sunrise over Utila bay. It also affords views of the reef and it's "creatures", mountain range of the mainland, and a beautiful view of Utila town across the bay. The deck has a mahogany porch swing, table, chairs and hammocks. The lagoon side dock is perfect for watching the bird and animal life on the lagoon or launching a kayak or being picked up for a charter boat ride.

Facilities:

The air conditioned bedrooms are spacious. The master bedroom contains a full-size bed and king bed (or optionally 2 singles), sitting area, walk-in closet, and private bathroom. The second bedroom contains a double closet and includes two single beds (or optionally king size bed). Both bathrooms include two sink vanities and full bathtubs with shower facilities. With windows circling the house it is airy and light.

There are bay views from every room except the master bedroom, which looks over the lagoon and its surrounding mangroves. The house is furnished throughout with comfortable rattan furniture and has a large modern kitchen, dining area and living room.

Below the house is a large "bodega" which houses the laundry facilities (washer and dryer), two large water tanks and the hot water heater. Water is supplied by the municipal well and also a private well for backup purposes. The landscaped grounds, on the sandy beach, are full of local flowering shrubs, shade trees, and palm trees; plus an ever green privacy hedge. The grounds are maintained by Angel, our English speaking home caretaker and wonderful friend. Angel helped build the house and has been with us ever since.

The "Round" House is located on approximately half acre on a peninsula in Blue Bayou. It is just a five minute bike ride or 10 minute walk from the west end of Utila town and the public beach area. You will be just far enough out of town to provide privacy and solitude, but just a mile away is our charming town with restaurants, bars, dive shops, stores, internet/phone services, grocery stores, and the friendliest local population you will find in the entire Caribbean!

The house is cleaned weekly with linen changes. Angel cares for the property and is on-site Monday - Wednesday. Thursday - Saturday he is right next door. He is extremely friendly and will help you in any way he can. He will ensure you have butane for cooking, your drinking water delivered, and let you know where you can get anything else you want or are in need of. We also have a golf cart (seats four) or motor scooter (seats two) available for rental. Bicycles are available for rent at many locations in town.

The house comes completely furnished and includes all utilities. There is a full refrigerator/freezer with cold water in the door, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, drinking water dispenser, and plenty of cooking utensils. Reading books are available and CD player, TV/DVD player, Wireless Internet, washing machine and dryer, hot water heater. Both bedrooms have air conditioners, and ceiling fans. Kitchen, dining, and living areas have ceiling and floor fans. Deck is complete with table, chairs, hammocks and swing. Weekly cleaning service provided and linen changes. Private beach with quick access to town for dive shops, shopping, and restaurants. A number of kayaks (1 double and 3 singles) are available for use by Guests.
We can help you make arrangements for transportation once you reach Honduras.

Location:

From Utila Municipal Dock, turn left along the main street and walk for approximately 15 minutes down towards Chepes Beach. Go past Chepes Beach, follow the sandy track along the beach shoreline until you come to a small group of houses (Blue Bayou) on the ocean side. The Round House is the 4th property on the left. You can't miss it, because it is - ah, round shaped.
