BLUE BAYOU BEACH HOUSE

Utila House Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3 adults)

Fully furnished Beach Front 1 bedroom home located in the much sought after Blue Bayou area of Utila.

Our Beach House has a great island feel with a living area, fully equipped kitchen, 1 bedroom and 1 bath with hot water shower. There is a queen bed, futon and open shelving for clothing. We have town power and water, ceiling fans, air conditioning, washing machine as well as a TV with DVD player, DVD's, available internet (broadband card) and phone.

The house has a nice covered front porch with wooden swing and hammock. A great place to have your coffee and watch the sun rise, boats, snorkelers and eagle rays passing by.

There is also a large deck in front of the Beach House, extending over the water. A raised Champa (an open sided, roofed area) which is a great place to relax, watch all the activities going on in the bay and catch the beautiful Utila trade winds.

The Beach House is nestled in between the Caribbean Sea and the Lower Lagoon which provides access to the pristine beaches and reefs of the northern shores of Utila.

The reef along Blue Bayou is vivacious and healthy with many reef fish, eagle rays, moray eels, lovely Staghorn Coral, Brain Coral and ecosystems to explore. The snorkeling and shore diving is just fantastic here.

Always, when visiting any ocean destination, be sure to bring sun screen, your snorkel, mask, water booties and fins for exploring all the sea life that is right out our front door. Check with the dive shops for renting tanks as there is a dive site just yards from the deck.

Be sure to bring bug spray. As a rule we always have a nice breeze blowing so sand fleas should not be a problem, but if the breeze dies down we have found that baby oil works well, along with bug coils which are available in any store on the island.

Utila is just a beautiful little island with friendly people. A must see for divers and non-divers alike.

Hi Carrell,

Sorry it's taken so long for me to tell you how great your place is. I thought

I'd be able to log on to my home e-mail and then access my e-mail address book,

and somehow I hadn't set up my computer to do that from afar. So I got your

addresses from Heather this monrning.

Your place is great. Heather met us at the ferry on Sunday morning and offered

us a tour of the town, which we declined because we were pooped.

We were also amazed at the stock of food in the cottage!! Of course, we'll

replace what we use, but it was so great to find staples and common items like

sugar, coffee, soup, crackers etc.

As well, the scooter is wonderful. When Allan was a teenageer he had a big

motorbike, and guys who drove scooters were considered a bit 'woosy'. Well, 35

years later, he loves it. We've motored out to the end of the new runway, also

to the beach at the side of the old runway.

We haven't explored anywhere in the kayaks. I'm looking forward to going

through the canal/chanel to the other side. I'd imagine we'd need to be

slathered in bug spray?

Allan took part of his scuba course in Calgary, and he's doing a checkout this

morning, and then two of his open water dives this afternoon. He knew that it

would be less expensive here, but didn't want to feel rushed if trying to keep

up with bright and quick young things.

Anyway, that's all for now. Your place is great and we are super-happy. The

timing couldn't have been better: the weather in Ca;gary was -20c the day we

laft, and my contract was up on my job, so I was at a loose end. Now of course

I just try to wangle a way to STAY here!!Like everyone else I imagine.

All the best,

Jo and Allan

Deanna's family is 4 generations on Utila. She and Ed spend about 3 months out of the year here in their 2nd home, also located in the Blue Bayou area. We are making plans to live full time on the island because of its beauty, hospitality and long family history.

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

The Beach House in Blue Bayou is close enough to town to shop, dine and take in the island's culture, yet situated in one of the most private and quietest areas on the island. Truly, the diving and snorkeling right outside the front door is unrivaled.

The warm Caribbean Sea is right out your front door, literally. If you dive, snorkel or just love playing in the ocean, this property is for you.

STILL A PLEASURE...

  • 5 of 5
This should be my SECOND review of Blue Bayou, but my first time there was my first VRBO rental & I just didn't realize the importance of leaving Good Feedback! Here I am trying to make up for lost time. Obviously, I loved it enough to return & it didn't disappoint. I think it may have even changed owners since I last rented it, but it's still the same place. A very perfect spot to be if you enjoy being a little bit outside of town & enjoying a bit of Peace. There is a fantastic Reef to explore right in your front yard. I did more exploring of it my first time, but this time I was busier learning how to Dive down the road at Coral View. They are AWESOME!!! At any rate, it's really nice to have such a great Reef right there for you at every moment. I was by myself on this trip, but the space is ideal for a couple. Blue Bayou is a really nice place to stay on Utila... off the Main Drag, but still plenty close if you want to be in town. Very convenient for the Neptune's water taxi, which I enjoyed repeatedly! So much Fun to be had.....

MILLION DOLLAR VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Blue Bayou Beach House for 4 nights. The location was great - a short walk to the end of the Bayou, where we took a water taxi to Neptunes for a relaxing day on a beautiful beach. A longer, but pleasant walk to town and restaurants. The porch with the wonderful view was perfect for enjoying morning coffee, and a nice spot to stay dry and watch it storm. Snorkeling was good from the dock. We did fine without transportation (they drive fast and crazy with their golf carts and motorcycles), though a bike would have been convenient. It was all we had hoped for!

WONDERFUL HOUSE AND ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Blue Bayou for two weeks over this past Christmas and New Years and what a wonderful way to spend our holidays! The owners were great from the beginning, answered all of our questions and they were so helpful! Prior to our stay they sent us information about the island which was so helpful. The property manager, Mike was equally as helpful and friendly, he picked us up when we arrived and helped get us settled and then stopped over everyday to check on the place. He also answered any questions we had, thanks again Mike!
The Blue Bayou house itself was exactly as it is described and was everything we expected! The house was clean and well maintained. Linens and towels are provided which is nice as well as any kitchen utensils you would need. The porch has a swing and hammock which is great in the mornings for the beautiful sunrises! You can literally snorkel right off the deck which was so convenient. The house is located away from the main part of the island, so it is nice and quiet, but the island is small enough that you can easily walk or take a Tuk Tuk into the center of town when you want to. There are many great restaurants and bars (Driftwood, Lydia's, RJs, Skid Row, Ultra Light to name a few) in town and great outdoor activities to utilize. Snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving (Coral View Dive Center) and hiking are among the many fun activities we did. Utila itself is wonderful and we truly enjoyed the island, people and many wonderful things do and see. I would highly recommend this house and the island itself to friends and family.

BEACH HOUSE BLISS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the beach house for a week and it was all we had hoped for and more. From the beginning, the owners were easy to contact, very informative and helpful to make sure our stay was perfect. This property suited all that we were looking for. Easy access to coral reefs, for diving or snorkeling, right off our own dock, ample power allowance and stocked with fresh water upon arrival. It is also a quiet retreat for peaceful evenings, just a short walk from Utila Town. The view over the water towards town and across the straight to the mainland, mountains was gorgeous and as simple as opening your blinds from bed. The property manager Mike was there every day to make sure things ran smoothly. KUDOS TO YOU MIKE!!! The beach house has a rustic charm that is comfortable and homey, while also being extremely affordable. We used the AC only 2 nights because the breezes at this location kept the house comfortable for sleeping with just a fan. This house enabled us to have a true island vacation. Our only regret... we didn't stay longer, but we will definitely be going back again. Thanks again to Ed and Deanna, Mike and all the natives that helped make this a special place we will enjoy again!

A BIT OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Spent a wonderful month in paradise. It was exactly what we wanted, a quiet place to get away with a beautiful sunrise every morning. We spent many hours on the porch swing. The snorkeling was amazing right in front of our cabin. The weather was just what an island oasis should be. Owner and caretakers were so helpful in acclimating us to the island. We had fun exploring the island and visiting the many restaurants. The islanders are so friendly. Can't wait to go back.

Map

Car: not necessary

From right out your own front door, there is birdwatching, eagle ray watching & lots of aquatic life to take in. Only a short walk to town, where there are excellent restaurants and bars. There are many grocery markets, banking, a public beach, internet cafe, and night life for the younger crowd. Take a 10 minute boat ride to spend a day on your own private cay, swimming, snorkeling and picnicking. A kayak trip to the north shore is a must!
