Cozy beachfront house in the Caribbean - sleeps 5. Still available for Christmas / New Years Holidays!
Laid-Back Luxury in a Garden by the Sea
Casa Idalia is a cozy, two-bedroom, two-bath home, located about 3 miles from Utila Town, and is BOAT ACCESS ONLY, meaning no cars. Just quiet, peaceful privacy. The sound of the sea and the occasional passing boat make it an ideal getaway from the hustle of modern city life.
Custom-built to U.S. standards, Casa Idalia features a burgeoning flower garden, fabulous sea views, screened-in porch and outside deck for relaxing any time of the year. Walk along the manicured path to the sea just 90 feet away, or take advantage of the adjacent two-story dock for unsurpassed sunbathing, star gazing or entertaining.
Casa Idalia is air-conditioned, has a fully-equipped kitchen, spacious dining nook, and a comfortable living room where you can put your feet up after a wonderful day of diving, beachcombing, snorkeling, swimming, picnicking or enjoying any of the other attractions that Utila’s South Shore has to offer.
The two bedrooms can accommodate up to five guests with a double bed in one bedroom, and two single beds with a clever trundle bed in the other. Two bathrooms with beautifully tiled showers afford convenience and privacy.
The spacious screen room and expansive front deck offer you options for entertaining or just spreading out. The huge market umbrella gives you a respite from the sun while allowing you to spend as much time as you want outdoors.
Some of the optional attractions of the South Shore are kayaking; Water Cay excursions; SCUBA diving with Utila Cays Diving (#1 on TripAdvisor), trips to Utila town for sightseeing and shopping; fishing (both deep-sea and bonefishing), and many other adventures.
Casa Idalia has full-time concierge-type service, and we’ll be sure to make your vacation one of excitement, or just chilling, or a combination of both. Let us provision your house with all the food and beverages you’ll need, so you arrive to a fully-stocked kitchen, and save precious vacation time shopping. Subject to availability, we can arrange for meal-delivery or chef in-house services during your stay.
Your rental at Casa Idalia includes round-trip boat transfers from your point of entry on Utila island, a cell phone, and plug-in USB modem for internet access. Pricing includes the 19% Honduran taxes. All events and excursions are “weather permitting” and are subject to change or cancellation.

We are the core of the concierge team at Treasure Beach (Coral House, Lavender House and Pineapple House rentals) and provide security, beach and general yard maintenance, assistance to guests with booking, necessities, recommended activities, and we'll even pick-up fresh fish from the local fishing village if you wish!
Dave and Trish spent 40 years in Pittsburgh, PA, USA before we decided to head to warmer climates. We lived 3 years in Jamaica before settling in Utila. Here we have found great friends, gentle pace of life and beautiful surroundings. Looking forward to meeting you soon
