Overview

About the property

Huge 2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom On The Beach In Tradewinds, Only 5 Min Bike To Town.

This is one of the biggest vacation rental suites on the island. We have stayed true to decorating in a feel good island style, while providing all the luxuries. We are also virtually right on the beach in the Tradewinds area. The house has one of the best views on Utila of the Rocky Point island, just 100 feet offshore. The snorkelling around this iron shore island is spectacular. After cooling off in the ocean, we provide a fresh water shower and dunk tank to rinse off the salt water from your gear.

The house is located a short 5 minute bike ride or 15 minute walk into the bustle of the town. So after an evening of taking in the island night life, you can escape back to the quiet of your private suite and only hear the waves of the ocean. We live on the premises, so we will always be present during our guests stay. However we will offer you all the privacy you require, but if you want us to share our information on the island we are more than happy to make your experience as full as you want it to be.

The island of Utila is really the caribbean the way it used to be. The locals here are really the most friendly we have ever met. Everyone is willing to help make your stay the best, you only need to ask. If you are looking for the chain hotels and restaurants you will be disappointed, but if you are looking to get away from your everyday then this is the place. Restaurants serve up some excellent home cooked meals, bars are literally on the docks over the sea. All you need to pack is your flipflops and bathing suits, leave your high-heals and black dress at home. If you are a scuba diver or snorkeler and you have not been here, what are you waiting for? There are over 100 dive sites surrounding the island. The reef is a fringing reef that is only 50 feet offshore in some spots, so accessibility is easy. The water temperatures are warm year round.

About Cary and Jody Holtz

We are Canadians who took the plunge and moved abroad to the tropics to escape the winters. We sold the everything back in Canada in search of the paradise. We travelled to Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Indonesia, Australia and China, and then on a whim to find some affordable diving we decided to try out this little island we heard nothing about. Within 3 days of landing here we were in love with everything, and starting to look for property, and we found our dream beach house and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Cary and Jody Holtz purchased this house in 2014

Why Cary and Jody Holtz chose Bay Islands Honduras

We looked at numerous homes on the island and the moment we walked on the beach front deck we were sold. This is what we always wanted and more. We are close enough to town, but just far enough away. The sun rises over the sea to great you in the morning, and if you are looking for the sunset you are a close jaunt into town to take it in at one of the local dock bars.

What makes this house unique

Location and View! We love that while you are at the house the only sounds you hear is the ocean and the breeze through the palm trees. We choose this house because of it’s traditional build and feel of a true beach house. Our house has that caribbean feel to it, from it’s sea blue exterior to the beach at your toes. It also did not hurt that the view is one of the best on the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I decided that I would go out of my comforts of travelling only in the states and Mexico. Utila certainly is an undiscovered gem. Jody and Cary were the most gracious of hosts and helped make our stay enjoyable. This is by far one of the nicest views and the house is one of the only ones on a sand beach. The walk into town took me 15 minutes but I enjoyed the excercise.

All in all I had a relaxing time.

Pure Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Breeze Beach House Suite was absolutely the perfect place for us during our three week visit to Utila.

The apartment is very spacious with its 1500 sq. ft. and ample windows that can be opened to catch the constant trade winds that blow. It is nicely appointed with comfortable furniture inside as well as outside on the covered patio. The bedrooms have very comfortable beds and are air conditioned in the event that you need to turn them on. The outside is also beautifully landscaped with tropical foliage and trees.

Even though we called this a vacation, it was a "working" vacation and it was very important that we have good internet access. This property had it! There was an issue for a couple of days with the local internet provider, but the property managers, Destination Utila was very quick to provide us with a temporary solution until the issue was resolved. We could not have been more pleased with their attentiveness.

Most of our playtime and work time was spent on the patio enjoying the views. This property sits within the Tradewinds area of the Island right in front of Rocky Point. Rocky Point is a little "island" that acts as a break for the waves hitting the beach. We enjoyed swimming and snorkeling right in front of the property! The depth of the water is only waste high all the way out to Rocky Point, which allowed us to go explore the little island with it's own little beach area.

Our time here was truly Pure Perfection! The photos provided are not in the least bit deceiving. We highly recommend this rental for anyone considering a trip to Utila!!

A suite in paradise with amazing owners

  • 5 of 5

First off, the suite is amazing. It initially seemed way too big for just two of us, but we found the space perfect for spreading out and letting the breeze blow in the big front door through the living areas and bedrooms. Of course the patio with the hammocks and chairs facing your "private" beach and lagoon is the focal point of your time at the property. Even though we were working at a dive shop on the other end of town, we found many hours to watch sunrises and enjoy the evenings with a sundowner beverage on the patio. The lagoon is perfect for swimming and snorkeling.

We cannot say nicer things about the owners, Cary and Jody. They were amazing. Gave us our privacy, but were there for any issues or to help make the stay more enjoyable. Our six weeks with them convinced us to try to stay in Utila semi-permanently.

Don't let the fact that the house is 3/4 of a mile from town scare you. We walked or rode bikes every day into town, and the fact you weren't in the middle of the competing music blaring from the downtown bars was peaceful. Seabreeze is nearly the perfect rental getaway, and it supremely well managed.
