“Paradise within the paradise”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I've been several times to the island and I've had my share of good and bad experiences when it comes to accomodations. I've stayed in pretty much every type of accomodation available on the island, but absolutely no hotel, inn or lodge compares to the beauty and comfort of Laguna Vista. A couple of friends and I, decided we should treat ourselves to something better for this trip, better accomodations, comfort, relaxation and a little more privacy; we were expecting something better, but we found THE BEST.

The house is a gem; a very clean, beautiful and comfortable get away on top of the hills that gives you a sense of tranquility and peace unavailable anywhere else on the island. Two nicely set bedrooms, very clean bathrooms, full kitchen and spacious living room make this house the perfect home-away-from-home for a small family or a small group of friends. Of course, I couldn't leave out the gorgeous private pool they have suitable for adults and small children, an absolute luxury in Utila, I think it would be hard if not impossible to find another accomodation that has a private pool on the island. Right next to the pool, a high-roof hut perfect for entertaining or simply relaxing. It's equipped with a large table, small fride, sink, ceiling fan and small speakers. In Laguna Vista, you don't need anything else.

I've left the best for last. Despite the fact that you are staying on the best place in town, enjoy the great amenities the house has, trust me when I tell you this, you WILL NOT find better HOST than Jo and Tony. We hadn't even set foot on Utila when Jo was already welcoming us and asking at what time she should pick us up. We had a problem with our arrival to the island due to bad weather and they took care of it. Once we landed we were picked up and tuk-tuked to the small paradise they're lucky to call home. That's not all, to our suprise they even had cold drinks on the fridge!! Tony and Jo are such kind and welcoming people, not to mention easy-going and interesting. They are accessible at pretty much any time and its a delight just to have a regular talk with them.

Utila is a gem, a paradise that the few who know about, are lucky enough to experience it. I am Honduran, so I come here alot, but this being my first time at Laguna Vista, I can tell you. It will definitely not be my last. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

“Best Hosts Ever!”
Reviewed 24 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

From the moment we landed on Utila Tony and Jo were the hosts with the most! We arrived tired and grimy from over 24hrs of travel and were greeted with a warm welcome and big hugs. They loaded us and our things into their golf cart (which we promptly nicknamed) and the tour began. We arrived at our accommodations and could not have been happier. The home is spacious, nicely decorated, well laid out and comes with all the amenities you could want on a tropical vacation. Every window you look out offers views of tropical plants, jungle or fields. The home was very clean and the beds were super comfy. However, the champa by the pool is so inviting on warm evenings it's impossible to want to sit anywhere else. And the pool itself with its sparkling sweet water is over the top, perfectly refreshing and peaceful to sit by with fountains and all. It's also just the right depth to stand with a bevy! All this made our vacation feel like a tropical paradise and only a few minutes stroll to town. But the very best part of this vacation rental isn't any of this...it's your hosts. From borrowing a phone to call for pizza (even after we weren't staying with them anymore) to answering numerous questions, assisting us in a hotel in San Pedro Sula for our departure, stoking our fridge prior to our arrival, touring us about town and entertaining us with good conversation. Thanks for everything Tony and Jo, you are two amazing people and we hope to visit you again soon!!!

“Best place in Utila, hands down!”
Reviewed 4 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

There were 6 of us at Laguna Vista. Tony and Jo are simply the best hosts! They are very friendly and were more than helpful getting us whatever we needed. The entire space (inside and outside) was clean and beautiful when we arrived with a fully stocked beer fridge by the pool!

The house is about a 10 minute walk to main street. There are many Tuk Tuk’s around as well to take you anywhere. For most of us this was our first time on Utila and Tony and Jo gave us excellent bar/restaurant recommendations! Tony also hooked us up at BICD (Bay Islands College of Diving) for the 4 of us who wanted to become certified.

A big thanks to Tony and Jo! We all had an amazing time on the Island and already know when we come back this is the place we will be staying!

“finest accomodation on utila”
Reviewed 28 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

you could not have better hosts!
if you are with tony and jo - you are DIALED in to utila!
tonys' golf cart tour upon arrival was epic to say the least. met half the island in a day!

the place is off the main drag by 400 yards (serene) which is nice. walking, taxiing to the main drag is easy. the taxi (tuk tuk) is $1.
