Utila town and all amenities are easily reached in all weather conditions through the safety of this lagoon. There are also water taxi services so boat ownership is not required in order to live in this area.
The service road stretches 3.5 miles to the west and 1 mile to the east making for a beautiful trail to walk on along the beach and through the tropical foliage. Utopia Village to the west can be reached in under an hour at a leisurely pace. Purchase a day pass and enjoy the spa, bar, pool and restaurant.
Constructed out of Honduran Hard Wood, this 2,884 square foot home is solidly built and well maintained.
The front porch and second story deck add additional living spaces and areas to enjoy the feel of the sun and the sound of the surf. Great places to take in the surrounding tropical ocean landscape, including birds, swaying palm trees, colourful orchids or even a passing pods of dolphins from your hammock, deck chair or vantage point from your grill.
As this property is located close to town, this home has UPCO power, and the option to connect to Municipal water supply. It currently has a cistern that catches rain water.

The Mezzanine which is accessed by an iron spiral staircase can be utilized as additional sleeping space, an office, an exercise or yoga area or a play room. The views from the Mezzanine are breath-taking and offer a sweeping panorama of the seascape.
The openness of the main floor allows for the view through the large front picture windows to take precedence, no matter your location in the home. From the kitchen, dining or living areas the sea is visible.
This home is being sold with furniture and appliances, including: four fold out full size futons, washer/dryer, stove, and refrigerator.
