Purple Jawfish Beach House On Private White Sand Beach in Front of Amazing Reef!

Located in: Utila
This beachfront house is not large but has a sizeable open floor plan that is perfect for a couple on a romantic island getaway. Situated on a private beach replete with coconut bearing palms and a prevailing eastern trade wind, the Purple Jawfish Beach House has been called the best vacation rental for couples by numerous guests on other vacation rental websites. The house has recently been gut-renovated and is like new. The kitchen area, dining area, sitting/reading area and sleeping area are all well defined by unique counters, a Honduran hardwood custom bookshelf and an armoire. The kitchen features all new stainless steel appliances (no dishwasher though) and a sunken deep sink on a unique penny peninsula countertop. There are 20 feet of 4 foot high windows on the front and sides of the house (15 feet of them look directly out over the beach to the Caribbean sea and the mountains beyond). It is truly amazing to see.

There is a new deck with a swinging loveseat where a couple can watch the tiny waves gently break on the beach (the north side of the island has the bigger waves. The house is located on a rare (for Utila as it is not incredibly sandy on the shores) stretch of white sand beach in the snorkeling hotspot neighborhood of Blue Bayou, which stretches out in front of the Mesoamerican reef. The mountain range Cordillera Nombre de Dios rises up in the distance from the mainland and on most days you have a great view of the mountain peaks out over the Caribbean even though they are over 20 miles away. A quick search of Google map’s satellite will show you why we think Blue Bayou is the absolute best area for snorkeling or shore diving available for vacation renters. The reef in this area is second to none and is right in front of the house. The only thing separating you from the water is about 50 feet of white sand and a few palm trees. A few of them are mature palms which produce coconuts. To the left of the house there are only almond trees, palm trees and sand. To the right, the neighborhood of Blue Bayou stretches out for a few houses (it is not large at all). This is the best neighborhood on Utila for vacation rentals due to its proximity to everything you need on an island vacation. It is very quiet but still close enough to get to restaurants or bars without a Tuk-Tuk (mototaxi). The house is on a dead end road (actually the end of the main road) where people catch boats to the south shore.

The house is perfect for people who want to dive, snorkel, get a tan on the beach or fly-fish. All of these activities are accessible from the private beach in front of the house. It is only a short 10 minute walk to town (a bike is even quicker, you can rent them for less than $5 a day if you get them weekly) but far enough away that you can relax in peace with a cold beer or a Coco-loco (take a coconut, empty the milk, replace with rum) without doing much of anything. This is the Caribbean of Hemingway, before cruise ships and all inclusive resorts, Purple Jawfish beach house is a real life corona commercial and since we cannot be here all year round, you should stay at our place instead.
