I, and my two young adult children truly had the time of our lives.
The House: Far exceeded our expectations of a beach front home. Clean, comfortable, and inviting. Large fully equipped kitchen open to the dining and living areas. Actually the entire house is fully equipped with anything that you could possibly need and then some. Outstanding ocean views from any room in the house. A beautiful wrap around deck with access from the living room and all 4 bedrooms, gives a bird’s eye view of the beach and spectacular sun rise and sunset views with the main land mountains as a back drop. One of the many outstanding features of this home is the salt water swimming pool with deck area, a stone waterfall with a resident iguana, surrounded by lush tropical fauna.
The Beach: Walk out your door and you’re on your own private beach. The grounds and the beach are meticulously maintained. Hammocks, lounge chairs, a fire pit, and a small lagoon full of reef fish. If you like snorkeling, you truly won’t find a better location to stay. Maybe a 50’ walk to the water’s edge. Put your gear on and swim 50’ though the sand channel to the reef, and you are experiencing paradise under water! Outstanding reef! Dramatic views of the drop off to the ocean floor. People were paying a lot of money to dive boat companies to access that reef. We snorkeled numerous times a day, every day, for free, at our convenience, right outside our door!
Location: It’s only a 15 minute walk to downtown. 5 minutes if driving. Yet when at the house, it feels like you’re on your own deserted island. Peaceful, tranquil, safe and secure.
How Do You Say Priceless? Tina and JJ, that’s how. They are the resident concierges at Paradise Regained. Their knowledge, guidance, friendship and sincere willingness to make our vacation special was what really made this trip outstanding. Vacationing at any new destination can have a learning curve that can last your entire vacation wasting precious time, energy, and money. From the moment they picked us up at the airport, we felt like we were among trusted friends. They arranged numerous side trips, excursions, ATV rentals, restaurants, and anything else we may have needed. They booked a white water rafting trip for us to the mainland mountain jungle. Driver waiting @ ferry dock, amazing B&B in the mountains, rafting guide,tickets, and meals, all within 10 minutes. Try hitting that home run yourself in a third world country Priceless!
What a fantastic place to stay, totally worth it. I made reservations about a month earlier and never had any trouble with the owners. Oh boy ! it was better than expected, the first impression was like... is this for real ?
We rented the two studio apartments below, now we want to come back and take the bigger house on top, can´t wait. Returning customers are the best advertisement :)
It is quiet and peaceful, plenty of breeze with an amazing view at the ocean.We spotted some dolphins in the horizon, pretty exciting. Downtown Utila can get very loud and noisy with motocycles, ATVs , tuk tuks, cars and small trucks, mopeds too, but not here ! not at Paradise Regained, what a blessing. Safe and secure. Super clean.
I definitely recommend renting the golf cart available at this location, makes everything easier.
Thank you very much for a great stay and hospitality !
This was our 2nd time at Paradise Regained and in Utila. My son and I came to explore the island before bringing the rest of the family. JJ and TIna are wonderful and will do anything to help your vacation be the best!
We could not take the ferry the day we were leaving because of rain and wind. They stayed the entire time at the small Utila airport with us while we waited, decided and then flew to La Ceiba to go to San Pedro Airport instead of Roatan. I am so glad we decided to follow this.. After hours of waiting for the clouds to lift, a small aircraft pilot said he would take us to La Ceiba. If we would of gone with others to Roatan, it would of taken us 2 extra days to return home. What an absolute blessing and what fun we had drinking beer with TIna and JJ. Thank you!
The house is the BEST location on Utila!
This is my 7th trip back to Utila and we stayed at Paradise Regained. This is a large 4 bedroom home on the water. The newest addition to this fabulous home is the POOL, a salt water pool that is filled every two days with ocean water. I would highly recommend this property for families with children and absolutely wonderful for adults. The property managers, Tina & JJ were superb. Our favorite new restaurant/dock bar is REHAB with a great kitchen and excellent food. Paradise Regained is a must for those looking for a quiet area to enjoy Utila since town can be a bit too loud at night. Plus, you enjoy sitting on the deck watching all the dive boats anchor just off the house. Some days divers from town will pull up in the TUK TUK (local cab for $2.00) and swim from the beach in front of the home. Just a great setting.
We stayed at Paradise Regained for a month in March 2012 and enjoyed it tremendously. The house is situated about a 10-15 minute walk to town on the East side of the village. It is private, quiet with superb access to the ocean about 20 paces away. We are snorkelers and found the access easy to the reef and beyond. Access is a bit more difficult for divers especially in low tide, but we saw quite a few divers find their way past the reef to open water. The reef in front of the house is one of the best on the south side of Utila with a steep wall dropping off to the sea floor below. Quite a few eagle and sting rays for the viewing. Water clarity is amazing-the best we've seen in the Caribbean.
The house offers all you need with the premier living area being the wrap-around deck adorned with rocking chairs to make your stay even more decadent. Sunrises and sunsets on the deck are a mandatory activity. Your hosts, Tina and JJ, are wonderful, helpful folks who have answers to all your questions and who make your stay even more enjoyable.
We have visited quite a few of the islands in the Caribe but none has won our hearts like Utila, and Paradise Regained was a big part of that attraction.
Have I mentioned the remarkable, ever-present sea breeze blowing across the deck? That alone was worth the price of admission. Run, don't walk, to rent this house and enjoy Utila before it loses its charm and quaintness and becomes just another Caribbean island!
It is often easier to write a damaging review rather a resounding one; so let me be the exception. I have traveled over the entire world as an Airline Pilot and have yet to see a more beautiful location than Cindy and Jon have here in Utila. If you really want to 'get away' from your rat race, look no further - THIS is the place.
The front facing lagoon, with its diverse aquatic life is so serene that you'll want to have your morning coffee for more than just the morning. Cindy and Jon have entertained Astronauts, World Record Holders and other celebs here for obvious reason. To use an old cliche, "it just doesn't get any better than this."
If you dive, which may be why you have chosen Paradise Regained for starters; their home sits on the 2nd largest reef on the planet. The dive boats actually moor just outside your 'front door!'
And - oh yes, if you choose the lazy route, as have I, the dive shops will deliver your tanks to the house.
Dr Tina and JJ are your concierges. You will not find a couple more willing to meet your needs than they, and I have seen many. I will return again and plan to tell all of my friends and fellows that they need look no further than Cindy and Jon's little 'peace' of paradise.
