“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed April 17, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Words can’t describe this place, definitely an experience worth repeating. Daryl was a great host; he gave us all the information needed to get to Cayos Cochinos safely. At the Cayo, you will experience nature at its best, great snorkeling, magnificent sunsets/sunrises and most of all, overall relaxation at a very comfortable place. Franci and Jose, the caretakers at the cabanas, were great helping out on anything we requested without hesitation, make sure to leave them a good tip as they will do anything to make you feel comfortable. Do take care of the reef as its one of the attractions of the place. We will return very son!

“Unique and gorgeous place where you are hosted by the kindest people”

This place is just amazing and I would recommend to travel there to anyone trying to escape the noisy urban way of life. The island is a place to reconnect with nature and its beauty, every single day of my stay was a delight.
I spent a week in Cayos Conchinos Island with my wife for our anniversary and while looking for a isolated and tranquil place, we found natural beauty, wild life, and warm friendship.
First, I strongly recommend to use the help from the owner (DK) for organizing your trip to the island. DK is making sure that from the airport to the island things are smooth and safe, and is well connected to locals for various services your trip may require.
Once on the island, the food and housing are excellent. We rent the main house which included two floors with 4 terraces. It was plenty of spaces for two yet we spent most of the time at the ground floor where the jewels of the island are: our hosts. Indeed the island is managed by a Hondurian family: Jose, Franci, Fernando and Julia. While Franci prepares delicious local recipes from fish and lobster usually caught earlier in the morning. Jose is making sure that all is working in the house, he is always listening to everyones' needs and he is definitely resourceful. Fernando is the adolescent of the family and an amazing diver. Spending time with him diving the surrounding corals was another daily delight. Finally, Julia is the youngest daughter and she is just cute and friendly. Every evening we enjoyed spending time with this family sharing our life experience, laughing, playing and dancing as one see fit.
My favorite activity was to spend time in one of the multiple hamacs around the highland and just contemplate the rich landscape combining the green robust mountains sited on the horizon and reflecting their massive shapes into the pristine water all around the island. The sound of the fibers of the hamac stretching gently under the sun in which one can be dried slowly by the warm breeze from the sea... ... I miss this place so much and can't wait to go back.

The owner and his wife are absolutely the best! They are always a phone call away from helping you have the best experience. The care taker and his wife are wonderful cooks and have adapted very well to having for foreign visitors. The property is incredible! Very relaxing and beautiful. Surrounded by reef on all sides and an abundance of sea life everywhere, its snorkel and scuba diving heaven. There are hammocks everywhere! We have stayed in the big house which for the pricing is a must. Even though all the other cabins are just fine. I am a chef by trade and still have them prepare some of my meals because we are busy relaxing and enjoying the tranquility. The other guests that have been there with us were from all over the world and are now life long friends and we are trying to plan another trip there where all of us meet again! This 3rd trip we are trying to fill all of the cabins with friends and family. Daryl(owner) has payed very close attention to detail on what would make his guests more comfortable and has added a ton of things back into the infrastructure in one year since our last visit we were amazed. Which shows how much they care about making this place paradise. I could go on forever on this place and so i will finish with this. I have traveled all over the Caribbean. I chose to come back instead of a resort because of our first experience was so perfect that other places would never top it. Word of advise, Go Go Go and see for yourself you will not be disappointed! Maybe i will see you there!

“Paradise on earth!”
Reviewed April 7, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We really enjoyed our time in los cayos, even though it's in island far from everything, there are so many things to do. We enjoyed swimming, kayaking and snorkeling. we also had the opportunity to visit the other nearby islands. Daryl is an amazing host, he made our arrival so much easier and help us organize our trip. I would definitely recommend Daryl's place and would love to go back.

“Outstanding - beautiful, peaceful, amazing nature.”
Reviewed April 6, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The island is remote and beautiful. There is a reef a few yards off the dock - drop into an amazing snorkeling experience in seconds. There's an amazing array of fish - it's unbelievable.

My wife and I visited first and it was a great getaway. We wanted to share the experience with our children - aged 8 through 16 - and came back with them several weeks later. We again had an awesome time.

Daryl is fully invested in the experience, taking care of every detail with care and concern. The caretakers on the island, Francie and Rey, are incredibly warm and helpful. Very attentive to every need and wonderfully accommodating. They truly enjoy what they do and their passion to ensure the quality of your experience is apparent.

We look forward to our next trip to Cayos Cochinos!

We had a great, exotic time in Daryl's home in Cayos Cochinos, a hidden gem in the Bay Islands. Visiting the islands around was also an experience. Very nice punctual and attentive service and great communications. Nancy and helpers were always there to attend to our needs. Fully recommended!

“Paradise”
Reviewed March 11, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Visiting the island is like living in a gorgeous postcard. If you're looking for a true break from the daily grind, this is it. We savored trading up our nerve-fraying cell phones for the tranquil sounds of gentle waves and the tropical breeze. The caretakers, Francy and Jose, went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. We treasured the opportunity to learn more about the Honduran culture through them. We also felt lucky to spend the first two days of our trip getting to know Daryl's wife, Nancy. Her spunk and kindness made us feel so very welcome. As for Daryl, he is an excellent, prompt communicator. He put all of our worries to rest and was beyond patient with our endless questions as we prepared for the trip. Daryl had everything covered, from our transportation from the ferry to the Upper Long Key, all the way to getting our grocery list filled and sent out to the island. Prepare to experience peace as you explore some of the best coral reef in the world. Through a local guide, we spent a morning touring some of the other nearby islands. As part of it, we did more reef snorkeling and ventured into the jungle where we not only found a pink boa constrictor, but got to hold it. We then finished the (email hidden)'s community island where his wife cooked us lunch. The tour was not only affordable but highly interesting . Now there are 4 or 5 bungalows on the property so you may be sharing the island some, but there's lots of space and lots of hammocks! It would also be a great place if you want to travel with other family or friends. Honestly, we can’t say enough great things about our experience at Daryl and Nancy’s home away from home. Our best advice, pack your bags! You've found paradise.
