UTILA'S ONLY PERSONAL RESORT 2011 & 2012 AWARD WINNER FOR BEST RENTAL

Utila Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Second year in a row, Top Rental and Excellence Award winner!

Laguna Vista is a premier upscale vacation rental on Utila, a small island often called 'The Rose of the Caribbean'.

Laguna Vista is a the only vacation rental on the entire island that provides you not only the privacy you need from your work a day world in a fully found 2 bedroom home away from home, but also your own private swimming pool, Jacuzzi, champa, and bar that will allow you to rejuvenate your spirits with as much or as little interaction with the outside world as you might see fit.

The Rental: At the pools edge is your private entry into your home with two bedrooms each with a private bathroom, both with queen sized beds, ample, locking closet space, private personal safes, air conditioners, ceiling fans and upgraded linens inviting you to relax in style.

A bright and airy living area complete, with color cable television, DVD player, and a custom built sofa bed for an unexpected guest offers comforts seldom found in the island's rental market.

The residence is also complete with a full size kitchen, including all the accouterments needed to prepare everything from a quick microwave snack to a gourmet meal from the grill top or from the oven.

The Grounds: Just a step outside of your door is the sweet water pool for your exclusive use; Laguna Vista boasts a glass mosaic freeform custom designed and built swimming pool for your pleasure.

Designed by your hosts and built by Watermania, this is a pool built to enjoy. A grand staircase allows for graceful entry into the pool even with a cool beverage in your hand.

With a standard depth throughout allowing any and all to wander about, this is a social gathering area unsurpassed in Utila vacation rentals. Benches designed into the walls are perfect for conversation gathering points, with one including Jacuzzi jets for a simulating back massage at your pleasure. A waterfall adds the pleasing sound of relaxation to complete your experience.

When you're ready to step out and dry off, you can sit in the comfort of a private champa at the water’s edge that shields you not only from the sun, but is perfect for anything from quiet reading time to a jovial atmosphere or even for a private party.

The champa, with a non-skid terra cotta floor, has indirect lighting, ceiling fans, flow through ventilation, and plenty of seating to provide after pool enjoyment.

If you desire, a private bar can be set up in a matter of minutes for your convenience or to entertain should you have guests.

We strive to make your vacation as effortless as possible. Standard services include arranging pick up and return to your point of origin on the island, and provisioning and stocking prior to your arrival, if requested. Massage is available onsite for those wishing to indulge, and yoga mats are available upon request.

For those wanting to enjoy the diving that Utila is famous for we can provide a private dive boat with personal professional Dive Masters/IDC Instructors, or special arrangements can be made with select qualified local dive shops to include you in their groups. Certification in Diving is available from Beginner all the way to Advanced using Drager™ Dolphin Rebreathers and Closed Circuit Units. Diving alternatives such as horseback riding, boating, sailing charters, 4 wheel excursions or guided nature walks are only a request away. Laguna Vista also has access to the best in Catch and Release Deep Sea Fishing Charters, having custom boats on call with Captains who know and fish the sea surrounding the Bay Islands.

Laundry and maid service is available. This is your vacation, let Laguna Vista make the most of it for you!

Canadians Peter, Joan, Tatianna, and Cody have purchased Laguna Vista! Being life long Canadians and living with winters that can sometimes be extraordinary, having a second home in the Tropics is perfect for us. Laguna Vista was purchased with our retirement in mind, however with that still a few years in the future it is available for our guests to try the lifestyle that is Utila; we're sure that they will fall in love with it like we did!

Mantained by our good friends and on site hosts Tony and Jo, long known as 'the go to people' on the island, we all strive to make your vacation Utila as effortless as possible. If you need anything, they can usually make it happen for you. Their enjoyment of people and of being able to assist with almost anything has been a hallmark of their excellent reputation on the island for years.

Tony & Jo purchased this apartment in 2006

We purchased this property following a visit with Tony & Jo whilst they were in Canada visiting family, who are also our dear friends. At that time we had no interest in purchasing another property, and in fact had never even heard of Utila! After hearing about the lives and the lifestyle that they enjoy we knew it would be right for us, too, and we purchased Laguna Vista. Our subsequent visits to the our Tropical island home have validated our decision many times over. There is a certain lifestyle that is Utila, and it is the lifestyle we want to enjoy in our retirement. We are now set to do just that when the time is right!

The most unique benefit of our home in the Tropics is having the custom pool literally right out of the front door and the custom champa just steps from the pool. In Canada private pools are few and far between, especially in our province, and to have one at the ready at any time of the year is remarkable to us. The fact that the property is maintained and upgraded constantly by Tony & Jo has made it a unique addition to our portfolio, and a boon to us and our guests! Being within walking distance to the heart of town yet just far enough to be out of the hustle and bustle makes this perfect for us, and we think our guests will appreciate the same things!

Excellent Stay in Laguna Vista

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 27, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
Stayed in Laguna Vista with a friend for an extended stay in January. It's a great spot on a great island that comes highly recommended. The property is accurately described, aside from the hot tub which was not functioning during our stay. It's also worth mentioning that your hosts Tony & Jo live directly above the apartment. You are welcome to interact as much or as little as you prefer, but that will quickly turn into as much as possible! Tony and Jo are truly awesome (the reviews speak for themselves) that definitely add to your Utila experience. We look forward to returning!

Fantastic

Our hosts, Tony and Jo, made our journey to Utila easy and stress free. They prearranged our charter flight from Roatan and we were greeted at the airport with a taxi to drive us to Laguna Vista. As always, the grounds are lovely and the little touches like fresh flowers, were waiting for our arrival. Laguna Vista is definitely the best house on the island to stay. It's a beautiful private resort with the advantage of Tony and Jo available for all your inquiries and needs. We always enjoy visiting our second home and appreciate our hosts and the wonderful people they surround themselves with.

Clean, comfortable, very helpful owners!

Our group of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers) found this very comfortable for a 3 night stay on Utila. It's away from the "town" but easily accessible within a 10 minute walk. The property was clean and well appointed with all the conveniences of home (plenty of towels, dishes, coffee maker, tv, internet, etc.) The owners were very helpful both before and during our stay in providing an introductory tour of town, suggestions for rainy day activities and helping us with last minute travel arrangements. We only wish the weather was better to be able to enjoy the pool more! We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Our location, close enough in to get anywhere with just a short walk, but just far enough out to have privacy is one of the best features of Laguna Vista! (and we're glad you enjoyed the pool!)

The house and property is exactly as advertised.
The hosts are fantastic. They helped us rent a golf cart at a Great discount, arranged private flights to Utila from Roatan and helped with all aspects of our stay on Utila.
The pool and cabana area is definitely the hangout spot at Laguna Vista!

Owner's Response: It is always our pleasure to make your visit with us as effortless as possible. Transportation and flight arrangements are something we do commonly make for our guests as it takes away one more thing they have to think about during their visit. (and, by the way, the item that was inadvertently left at Laguna Vista upon your departure is now on its way to the Hawaiian address you provided for its return!)
