Go for the beach stay for the people, food and adventure. This is an amazing white sand beachfront destination thats a perfect hub for ocean and mainland adventures. I had low expectations for the Honduran mainland after two excellent weeks of Roatan and Utila diving. I was so ve

Hey Canada, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. It's been quite a while since you were here so I'm happy to hear from you. Just used the maple syrup you left us 2 days ago. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, I just wish I could have been here for more of it. Happy to hear you were taken care of anyway. Have a great one. Michelle

Very nice property with wonderful pool & bar area. Michelle was excellent host and helped with all our travel arrangements. The location is on a nice stretch of beach and makes the boat ride to Cayos Cochinos Marine Park shorter and the boat picks you up right off the beach.

We are trying to get from Utila to LaCeiba on Saturday. Is it easy to get to the Inn from ferry, and easy to catch Hedman Alas bus to SPS airport on Monday? We would hope to stay 2 nights, October 29 and October 30. Thank you in advance. Terry
Hi Terry. Bookings somehow let a reservation go thru after I blocked it out. Love to have you come stay but we are not open until November 4th (given weather allows). Our place is awesome and we hope you have a chance to enjoy a stay here!

"Room closest to the shore you can here the ocean better at night. The cottage across the street is most private and secluded."
"I only saw the room in which I stayed. The bed does take up a large part of the room but there is a little space to walk around and a dresser in the bedroom. You can hear the ocean the entire time. It's was extremely relaxing."
"Fitness center - beach and pool Room Service - whatever you want, you can arrange with the owners"
"There are three rooms and we took the two closest to the ocean. I would recommend these."
"Two one bedroom units, and a third bedroom with a small kitchen, all with AC and H/C running water."
