The Key Lime casa
Seaside luxury for the discerning traveler!
One of the largest and newest homes on Utila, Key Lime Casa is located in a private development close to town and will comfortably sleep 4 in queen beds with upscale linens, with each bedroom having an ensuite bath for your convenience. This fully furnished home has amazing views, expansive decks, infinity pool, it's own small private island and a private lagoon to enjoy spectacular sunrises and sunsets from, or to just immerse yourself in long lazy days by the water. The main level of the home features 2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. A Great-Room includes the fully equipped gourmet kitchen - including upscale appliances, the living area, and swimming pool access. Our open concept Great Room has 25-foot high ceilings enhancing the experience of living on the Caribbean. There is high-speed internet with a robust Wi-Fi network throughout the house, large flat screen TV, and stereo system, and even a washer & dryer. Key Lime Casa has panoramic views in all directions with it's thoughtfully placed windows, and has been designed to include the sounds of the surf and views of the sea from almost every room!It's oceanside location is prime to give you the best night sleep you will ever have!
Key Lime Casa is well appointed and tastefully furnished with comfort in mind and modern conveniences to facilitate your enjoyment and make the most of your holiday. The kitchen is well equipped and appointed with brand new LG stainless steel appliances (dishwasher, range and oven, microwave and side by side door refrigerator) dishes and cutlery. Granite countertops are a delight throughout the home! Honduran hardwood craftsmanship is also found throughout the house – from the cabinetry to the bed-frames, tables, doors and windows; all of the furnishings and appointments were hand made on the island or mainland and custom fit onsite. That's where quality and attention to detail really show~ The house also features a privacy wall surrounding the compound with an outdoor shower and dive gear washing station so that you can conveniently freshen-up after shore diving, swimming, fishing or snorkeling; it is all available to you right off beach!
Unlike most oceanfront homes in Utila, this house has its own petite islands where you can relax in privacy. You can see, and even feed, the smaller fish that come in from the ocean for the protection of the lagoon. Just don't feed them bacon... save that for yourself! Key Lime Casa features incredible views across the Caribbean. The Pico Bonito mountains on the North Coast of Honduras are visible on a clear day, and our neighboring island, Roatan, just to the east, sits like an emerald on the horizon. Just plop yourself in a chair, put your feet up with a coffee or a cocktail, and watch the show; it's free!
Tony & Jo are also available to assist in arranging arrival pick-up, fishing trips, diving, snorkeling, horseback riding, and various other activities around the island as well as pre-arranging transportation, ATV, scooter, bicycle or golf car rental and departure drop-off.
Conservation is important to all Utilians and us! Like all island homes on Utila, and many other islands around the world, the water for the house is captured on the roof and stored in a cistern built into the house. While you will have plenty of water to wash, cook, drink, etc. please be mindful that the water is a scarce resource and should be treated accordingly. Please avoid any excessive water usage; our showers are big enough for two for a reason! Showers can be part of conservation and still be entertaining... Similarly, the home uses a limited capacity septic system so please be sure not to put anything unusual into the septic system that could damage or clog the system; if you didn't eat it first, it probably doesn't belong there.
Sand beneath your toes, the sound of the waves lapping on the reef, palms swaying in the wind, tiny fish swimming in the lagoon, and bigger fish in the sea … Grab your snorkel and mask and from our own private steps dip into the warm Caribbean ocean. A short swim takes you to some of the best reef sites on Utila’s south side! An outdoor shower is provided to rinse the salt from your skin before retiring to prepare for evening in or in town!
(The ground floor, Key Lime Casita, has a private entrance and a separate 2-bedroom apartment with bathroom and fully furnished kitchen. This home can be rented either as main floor, the 2-bedroom apartment only, or both together as interior entrances to each are separate and secure).
