We stayed in the Coral House in February, and it was absolutely perfect. There were 3 couples, and it seemed to be just the right size group for the house. The house was beautiful and I agree that it is even better in person than in the pictures -- and the pictures are gorgeous!

While it was remote in location, Dave and Trish made you feel like you were part of the neighborhood. We made fast friends with the several groups and were able to call Dave and Trish via a cell phone that they left for us at any time. They made everything so easy! I was a little worried about getting there with all of the flights and boats and vans, but they arranged everything. When we arrived there was always someone there to meet us at every step of the way. They aren't just the people that hand off keys to a house, they are your friends and hosts for the entire time you are there. If you need anything, they can help you find it. From recommending a fantastic dive shop (Utila Cays Diving) to introducing us to a lady who sold us fresh fish every day to hooking us up with a ride to town -- they are the key to a great time at the Coral House. I can't thank them enough for helping make our trip truly memorable!

“Your very own tropical paradise!”
Reviewed 7 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

A stay on Treasure Beach was unlike anything I've ever experienced..I've always dreamt of going back in time to a beautiful Caribbean destination BEFORE tourism hit..Before beaches became packed..Before all of the noise came in..Just being able to experience the Caribbean and having it virtually to myself has become a quest of mine. I found it all at the Coral House on Treasure Beach..
Even better, you get to experience all of this in a beautiful home with amazing people nearby making 100% sure every need you might have is met and exceeded. This is truly a place away from it all to unplug and relax..You take large planes, small planes, and boats to find it. There is no town within walking distance..Boats or Kayaks get you there.
The home is more impressive than the photos. Beautiful Vaulted ceilings and wood floors..A Beautiful modern kitchen with everything you need. Air conditioning in all rooms if you need it, and an amazing deck with amazing views which includes hummingbirds. You have your own beach with chairs and hammocks..A 2 level dock 10 feet away where you can jump in the water and have great snorkeling, or just use to relax on and stargaze. You have Kayaks onsite..Paddleboards to rent nearby.. You have amazing uninhabited Cays nearby to explore..Also make sure to wander around inhabited Pigeon Cay for another unforgettable experience...If you're a diver (or snorkeler), the best dive company in the world, Utila Cays Diving, will pick you up at your dock every morning and drop you off after. If you're a foodie, google Chez Lola Utila and discover your new greatest meal ever. They'll pick you up and drop you off too. Onsite, you will instantly love Trish, Dave, and Chef Peter..Trish and Dave were amazing in organizing everything prior to my trip and always there during if I needed anything. The same for Peter and he's also an excellent Chef!! He wants to cook for you! I know this all sounds too good to be true, so if you don't believe it, you'll be doing me a favor by letting me have the place to myself whenever I want. :) Seriously though, do some research and you'll see that I haven't even begun to describe all that is available to you at the Coral House and the amazing experience that awaits.

“Paradise Found!”
Reviewed 18 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Treasure Beach is true paradise. Set your internal clock to island time – Rise with the sun, hear the coconuts fall, the gecko cry, & the Carribean sea hit the sands. Relax, Relax, & Relax some more on the beautiful beaches, the double tiered deck or on the front porch of the beautifully appointed Coral House. Enjoy fresh fish, meet new people, engage the locals, kayak, dive, swim or snorkel. Fall asleep to the ocean. Wake and Repeat. When you come to Utila, your shoulders immediately fall. Less is definitely more here. Take in the true beauty of the island. Soak up what the delightful caretakers (Dave, Trish & Peter) have to offer when it comes to marine life, Honduras, their island, plants, birds…EVERYTHING UTILA! They are a wealth of knowledge and are happy to share with you what puts a smile on their face every single day. If you come here prepared to be wowed by the simplicity of it all then you won’t be disappointed. The Coral House is stylishly decorated and has everything you need. Don’t bother bringing a lot of clothes…you won’t need them. A swimsuit, shorts and flipflops are about as fancy as you get. If you need to do laundry, a machine is there. Commit to a regimen of bug spray in the am and pm and suffer you won’t! Dave, Trish & Peter will get provisions for you and pretty much do anything in their power to make sure your stay is as comfortable and meaningful as possible! Visit the Cays for fresh fish – Peter will take you a tour you won’t forget. He'll even cook for you! Spend a day in town where everyone knows Dave. Pick Trish’s brain about conservation efforts and the locals. Meet Sebastian & Lola of Chez Lola’s…their dinners are amazing! Dive with Bogdan and Katherine of Utila Cays Diving…top notch experts! Most of all…enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Treasure Beach and enjoy the wonderful people you'll soon call friends. Open the doors of the Coral House and take it all in – Paradise is all around you! We’ve only been home 2 weeks and are longing for our return – it can’t come soon enough!

“A Real Get Away and Escape”
Reviewed 11 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Looking for some serious R&R, the idea of getting away from it all was what appealed to me about the Coral House. The possibility of swimming with whale sharks and dolphins just sealed the deal. As it turned out, every step towards Coral House is one step further away from the rat race and another towards Shangri La.

The process of renting a private home was foreign to me but David and Trish made it simple. In fact, everything about this trip was different and in a way an adventure. From flying in a tiny 5 seat plane, to sitting in the back of a old pick up truck (the taxi), and to taking an open boat to the house, it was all new to me. You can rest assure however that David and Trish can take care of everything for you. From booking the plane to provisioning the house. They are a magical couple.

Coral House sits by the sea and it has beautiful views of the cays, the caribbean sea, and the mountains of Honduras' mainland. No need for a T.V. since the changing scenery is dramatic enough. Having the beach in your front yard and the jungle in the back only means that the wildlife won't come from touristy bars and excessive alcohol. Instead, you are welcomed by the beautiful flora and fauna of wild coconut trees, noni trees, forbidden fruit, humming birds, eagle rays, majestic barracudas, evening bats, and too much more to mention. Being this close to nature means there are bug issues to consider. Wearing lightweight long sleeves and pants go a long way to protecting yourself from the bugs and the sun.

The house itself highlights one of Honduras' main export...wood. The floors, custom counters, and walls are of polished local hardwood and the rooms are spacious. Each of the bedrooms have an ensuite bathroom and open to a view of the sea. The open kitchen layout meant that one is never without a sea view and was well appointed. Despite the wonderful interior, we spent most of our time on the gorgeous wrap around porch where we had all of our meals. The only decision we made in the mornings was whether to enjoy our morning coffee meeting the morning sunrise on the dock or to walk the secluded beach.

You would think that being in a remote area that one would get bored. We found ourselves rather busy however scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, exploring the cays, beach combing, kayaking and trekking in the jungle. There is even a fine dining establishment just a short boat ride away.

I found my Shangri La in Coral House on Treasure Beach. I would go back again in a heart beat.

“Luxury & Relaxation at it's Best!”
Reviewed 8 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

My husband and I had a wonderful time at The Coral House on Treasure Beach. Without question this small stretch of beach is the finest on the island. From the moment we arrived we were taken care of and always felt like we were in good hands and not once did we ever feel unsafe.

Although the house is somewhat remote, getting around was easy and the restaurants/shops in the cays were very handy if we needed more rum/beer/food. You could get there easily via the provided kayak. Dave & Trish were absolutely AMAZING. Very attentive and there if you needed them, but always respected your privacy. All of their recommendations were spot on.

We are not divers - so we weren't really sure what to expect of Utila - but quickly found there was plenty for us to get into. For the first few days we couldn't pull ourselves off of the daybeds on the porch. The reef and water are beautiful - the dock is the perfect entry point for some of the best snorkeling we've seen. We found the reef creatures to be most active in the morning and saw a very large ray, barracuda, beautiful fan corals and fish of every shape and size - all right in front of the house!! We also had a chance to go to Water Cay with our awesome neighbors from the Pineapple House - some incredible snorkeling on the south side of the island there as well. We saw a huge school of large fish and a couple of Lion Fish as well.

We were very lucky to have such great people all around and made some new friends. A must is dinner at Chez Lola... such a unique experience. Chef Peter also made us dinner at the house and what a treat! That man can cook!

Overall we couldn't have asked for more. The house was perfect and just steps from the crystal clear water. We enjoyed the breeze that swept through when we opened all the doors but had the luxury of AC when we wanted it. The finishes and decorations are contemporary and tasteful and the house was equipped with everything one could need.

What a vacation to remember! If you are looking for a slow pace and place to decompress - look no further.
