“Second home!”
Reviewed 24 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Stayed the gardens with my mum. Amazing place to stay, clean, comfortable, welcoming.
Fully furnished, well equipped kitchen meant we could enjoy the apartment like it was our own home.
The owners are great, so helpful with everything that we asked, and organising activities for us.

“feels like a second home”

we stayed with another befriended couple for 2 weeks in the gardens in two of the upperfloor appartments. the appartments are pretty nice, clean and comfortable furnished. the well equiped kitchen offers you to cook by yourself, what we did a few times. we spend a lot of time on the veranda, reading, having dinner or playing games. there's always a pleasant breeze up there.
the appartments are away from the hustle and bustle but it's just a 5 minute walk to the city-center or 1 minute with the tuk tuk. perfect, if you want to party one day and relax the other.
the owners jo & tony helped us a lot with organizing the travelling over night from san pedro sula to utila and back. they have taken care of everything and left nothing to be desired.

the only disadvantage are the mosquitoes and sandflys all over the island, except the kays. we recommend to use "off" or something when leaving the appartment. the appartments itselfs are protected with mosquito mesh infront of the windows. also the AC in the bedrooms protect you from the little biests, they don't like it cold.

all in one, a wonderful vacation in a wonderful accommodation!

“It felt like home...”

Tony and Jo don't just rent their property, the make you feel like you home. A couple so hospitable and warm! They picked us up from the ferry and showed us the island of Utila.The next day we had a wonderful trip to the Cayes with them and other tenants from the Gardens,it was like a family getaway, hot dogs on a deserted island is something unforgettable.Tony and Jo also arranged a Kayak trip with Steve through the mangroves and out into Turtle Bay,and helped us with advise about anything we asked!
Oh yeah, the property? :)
Booking our stay we got the quickest response with the most detailed answers and advice,so we knew everything about the Gardens AND Utila island way before we arrived,it was very helpful. The property is very clean and very well maintained( new microwave and stove,nice dishes,furniture,decor,purified water, and a real garden!) compared to other buildings on the island,if you are looking for apartment - long or short term -it's the best choice. It's located off the main street,which is a 10-15 minute walk,or less, - or a dollar taxi drive ( Tony and Jo were so kind to let us use one of their cell phones, we could call a taxi any time and it would arrive to the Gardens in 5 minutes) There are properties right on the main street,where all the action is,sounds attractive, but really, they didn't look nearly as clean and new as the Gardens,with its perfectly maintained territory, with all the appliances you need for cooking or just chilling, and a great price as well,so we were more than happy with our choice.Central America can be a very different experience compared to US but we did feel at home throughout our entire stay in Utila.
Thank you Tony and Jo, we'll see you next year!

“You should book here”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Gardens for a wedding and had a fantastic experience. The unit is bright and well stocked with full kitchen, reliable hot water and two small balconies to hang out on. The outdoor table and chairs plus hammock afforded some places to read, relax and play games but there was also some comfortable living room furniture for sitting around and drinking a beer. The owners are so friendly and were very helpful - we enjoyed talking with them and they were a great resource for island info. Utila is tiny but there is a lot of noisy small engine traffic and the Gardens are far enough away from Main Street and the bigger bustle of the town so is more quiet and relaxing than other parts of town. Also, unlike the other lodging we stayed at later in the trip, nice cross breezes that keep the bugs down and drive away the heat. Not only did the other lodging have no chairs or anyplace to hang out but also, no place to hang out any wet swim suits or gear but the stair railing/balconies at the Gardens were great for this also. You should stay here, Jo and Tony will take good care of you!

“The Gardens is amazing and the perfect place to stay in Utila.”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

If you're looking for a private and cozy place to stay in Utila The Gardens is where you want to go. The rooms are spacey, clean and equipped with everything you need for a pleasant stay. You have access to the pool around the corner and Jo's massage sessions are sure to keep you relaxed and not missing home! The Gardens is the perfect romantic getaway.
