“Treasure Beach - Your own piece of paradise in the Bay Islands.”

Eight of us just returned from a fabulous week at Treasure Beach on Utila, staying at the Coral House and its sister property, the Pineapple House.

The properties are extremely well equipped, and maintained by an excellent property management team, who see to your every need, from provisioning the houses with food and drinks of your choice before arrival, to making sure you can get to places you want to visit during your stay. A team like this is vital at a vacation property of this type, located a 20-minute boat trip from Utila Town. The houses are nicely decorated and feature spacious bedrooms and baths, as well as a massive wrap-around porch where you're likely to spend a lot of your time. Each house has its own private stretch of beach, and they share a nice dock, complete with a great rooftop sitting area perfect for drinks at sunset.

The properties couldn't be more perfect for water lovers. Snorkelers will find a reef teaming with life right off the beach, with an easy entry and exit by ladder from the end of your own dock. Scuba divers and snorkelers alike can enjoy the amazing services provided by Utila Cays Diving. They will pick you up at your own dock each morning, for a mix of diving the nearby reefs, and those a short ride away on the north side. They take care of all your gear from the beginning to the end of your trip, even rinsing and hanging it to dry right at your house at the end of your stay.

It'd be easy to have breakfast, lunch and dinner at your own house each day, but other options include a short boat ride over to the Utila Cays for lunch or dinner, or a longer ride to Neptunes for lunch, followed by drinks on their nice stretch of beach. Boat trips into Utila Town can be arranged as well, and it's worth at least one trip to explore the eclectic village. Other adventure options include kayaks, included at the houses, and stand up paddle boards from Utila Cays Diving. It's an easy and fun 15-minute kayak trip to get over to the Utila Cays for a look around. For a day trip, consider arranging a boat ride to Cayos Cochinos, where you can have lunch at a Garifuna fishing village, and snorkel and dive in the marine park there.

In short, if you want to get away from it all for awhile, and don't want to go to an all-inclusive resort or big hotel, the Pineapple and Coral houses of Treasure Beach are just right for you.

“Secluded paradise and adventure”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What an amazing Island and such a cool place to stay. Treasure Beach is secluded and pristine–a literal tropical paradise. You do need to have a little bit of a sense of adventure to be happy on this Island though (if you are high maintenance this is not the place for you). However, if you bring your bug spray, sunscreen and your love of the ocean, you will never want to leave...

The Coral House is fantastic and Dave and Trish were always just a phone call away if we needed them for anything! They had us set-up with everything we needed when we arrived, and the house has everything you need to make your stay wonderful. Dave got us set up with Bogdan and Utila Cays Diving. We dove West End and Duppy Waters with 3 DM's between 8 people (see my UCD dive review). First rate valet diving in small groups–perfect!

The Coral reef in front of the house is spectacular and we snorkeled it everyday except for the day we dove with UCD. Waters Cay, which is just a 20 minute Kayak trip away also has phenomenal gin clear snorkeling. Waters Cay is so cool because it has such amazing diversity. The Leeward side of the island has a huge sand bar which is great for sun worshiping. Moving from the sand bar to the turtle grass you get a beautiful well lit perspective of the reef nursery. You see tiny versions of all of the bigger fish on the windward side of the Cay. As you round the back of the Cay, the waves and coral formations start in shallow water and wrap all the way around the windward side dropping into the deep–it's like swimming through a coral forest. The under water topography is striking. There are too many fish to name, but I have added images that might help. In this case a pic is worth a thousand words. Really there is no substitute for the real thing though, so buy your tickets and GO! I can't wait to go back.

Be sure to visit the Utila Cays right across from Treasure Beach. Have lunch, get the history of the Cays, and buy some fresh fish to throw on the grill back at the house. We bought an entire hogfish filleted, and 2 lobster tails for around $30.00 US. We ate that for 3 days grilled, broiled and in fish tacos. Yummm

Take a boat trip into Utila Town and walk or tuk tuk the streets checking out the different bars and restaurants. Skid Row makes an awesome rumenade and has some tasty sandwiches. Stop into Jade Gardens to see the glass mosaic sculptures. It looks like Utila Town would be fun to hang around for a few days and a few hangovers :)

I miss it all already!

“Amazing Experience”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We returned to The Coral House for our wedding...It couldn't have been a more exquisite location. We love it here and words are hard to find for the beauty. Dave & Trish were exceptional planners and made sure all was perfect for us. They went above and beyond what anyone should do but that is just who they are. They want you to be happy and love their beautiful island home. We had excellent food from Chez Lola's, great diving through Utila Cays Diving and an awesome time just exploring the wonders outside our front door. We kayaked and snorkeled everyday and saw the most amazing sea life. We will return again and again as this truly is one of our favorite destinations and holds a special place in our heart. No where else have we met such wonderful people and experienced such beauty - and we haven't even explored all Utila has to offer. Do not miss visiting this amazing place!

“Beautiful View”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

The view from The Coral House is breath taking and the house is so comfortable. The pictures could never do enough justice. Dave and Trish were so accommodating, making sure that we had everything we needed. They managed to get items delivered for a special event we had there that I never imagined they would be able to provide. This was my first trip to this area, and it could not imagine staying anywhere else. I loved the house, but the experience Dave and Trish provided added so much more. The snorkeling right off the dock was beautiful and we had a wonderful time exploring the surrounding islands. Wonderful memories were made here.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The perfect beach house getaway. Lots of room, fully stocked kitchen, clean, with a perfect view of the ocean. Right infront of the dock with lots of snorking. Dave and Trish are amazing people and really make you feel welcome. Looking forward to returning for a third time.
