Tirina's Writer's Retreat

Hosted by Utila’s Tony & Jo and located in the prestigious TradeWinds neighborhood, Tirina’s Writer’s Retreat is the only rentable unit backing up to the Lagoon, and is far removed from the ordinary. Divers will be pleased to see that Tirina’s is only 100 yards from a shoreline entry and just 600 yards to the Airport Caves Dive Site. An onsite freshwater rinse tank is ideal for cleaning your cameras and dive gear. Following your dive a secluded outdoor shower with warm water is in place to rinse the salt away before you retire for an afternoon of reading, cooking or just sunset cocktails whilst you enjoy the Lagoon’s quiet wildlife. Only a 20 or so minute walk from 3 of Utila’s major dive facilities on The Point, Tirina’s is a perfect location for divers, or those just wanting a bit more solitude and amenities than you’ll find on Main Street.


This brand new unit is designed for comfort and privacy. A main advantage to the location of Tirina’s Writers Retreat is that it is close enough to Main Street to be in town with just a fifteen to twenty minute walk, yet far enough away to miss the ample noise of Main Street and its' hustle and bustle. Also, the fact Tirina’s Writers Retreat provides a full, serviceable US style kitchen allows you to make a few meals at home and save on restaurant fare if you find that to your liking.  While we all like to go out and eat in a local restaurant, sometimes a quiet, quick meal at home is in order. Here, this is an option for you! Bando Beach is about a 15 minute leisurely walk from Tirina’s Writers Retreat.  The closest restaurant is about a 20 minute walk (and the centre of town is about another 15 or so minute walk). 


“Tuk-tuks” (taxis), at L50 per person, are readily available.  If needed, we can supply you with a local cell phone so you will be able to call them as required.   

Tirina’s Writers Retreat has wireless internet so you may use it in your apartment, or anywhere on the grounds

Another option we provide our guests is to have their vacation home pre-stocked with beverages/food of their choice.  There is no charge for this service; we simply ask that your purchases are paid for upon arrival, along with your balance if applicable.  Let us know if you would like a Provisioning List and we will be happy to forward one to you. You simply tick off your selections return the list to us and we'll have your items in place when you arrive. 


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask! We’re looking forward to meeting and hosting you at Tirina’s Writers Retreat!
