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.

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.
This is an e-mail received from Jo during her stay in Utila. She gave permission to let me post this!
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
Initially we booked Blue Bayou Beach House for 5 nights. We were attracted by the location right next to the coral reefs and of course an affordable price. And we weren't disappointed. The house has a beautiful porch from where you can hum right into the corals. Just outside the house is a great wall with the most amazing corals. Lots of coral fishes. The house is a bit rustic, however charming. There is though one nuisance: Sand flies! You don't notice them, before it's too late. You don't see them, you don't feel, when they bite, but you will seen see the impact of them on your body. So be advised to take need precautions (repellents, baby oil,...).
Before making the booking, we had a very positive correspondence with the owners, Deanna and Ed. Very responsive and very helpful. We felt confident throughout the engagement with Deanna and Ed. On the island we were welcomed by Mike, who is kind of a janitor, and he made sure we were put on a taxi (or rather a tuc-tuc) to take us to the beach house. Mike also made sure, everything was ok during our stay. Thanks a lot to Mike!!
We enjoyed our stay at Blue Bayou Beach House very much, and we actually extended with it another 2 nights. There are lots of things to do on Utila. Definitely a place to return to....
My husband and i stayed at the Blue Bayou house and i wish i could stay and live there, but i had to go back home. We really liked it, having breakfast outside the house was great. Mike you are also great. We made such nice friends and we hope on going back on any other vacation, my husband also loved seeing the iguanas around. The house and the island is a fun place to enjoy with family or friends.
My wife and I chose to stay at this place for our summer vacation in Utila. We arrived on August 2nd, and spent a week there. This place is by far the best place to stay at in Utila for the money it's rented. It has everything you need to enjoy a nice, peaceful, and relaxed time in the island. It's not very far from the town center, but it's not very close either, which is just what we wanted! (away from the partying sounds of the Centro de Utila) If you like to snorkel, this is the place to be! you can snorkel right in front of the house! the sunrise is beautiful! the ocean breeze is excellent there due to its location. I highly recommend it! and I hope we get to come back soon. We had an amazing time there; Mike, who takes care of the property was awesome with us! he was waiting for us at the airport when we arrived, and helped getting us back to the airport on the day we departed. He treated us like friends, helped us out a lot, and was very polite. If you don't feel like cooking, there is a restaurant within 5 minutes of walking distance that serves good food, and has a bar on the water. This place is very chill! WE ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!
Nice and peace full house, Mike the rental manager is very help ful. The view is unbelivable! Walk distance from the dive center Coral View, they are very cool and the scuba diving is amazing!
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.....
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!
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!
