Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Great accommodations, cozy, private and near a beautiful beach in Utila. This rental was perfect for myself and visiting family. Tony and Jo picked me up at the ferry dock, did a property walk through and made themselves available for any questions or recommendations. I highly recommend this location and cant say enough about the warmth and professionalism of Tony and Jo.....
