This rustic little cabin was like a home away from home. Had everything we needed, although more than two bath towels would be nice. Short trip to town and loved sitting out on the beach in the mornings and watching sun rise, waves crash, eagle rays feed. We did not find a bad meal anywhere we ate in Utila, but Mango Tango was pricey, so we only had dinner there once.
What a view!! Great location!
The house is in a great location with your own private beach. Sitting on the porch swing makes you feel like you’re in a corona beer commercial, what an awesome view!! The house is cute inside with upgrades including WIFI. Renting the scooter was a definite bonus. Only a short ride into town but far enough to have peace and quiet. Utila town has lots of great restaurants. James was excellent at communicating with us and he arranged his property manager, Angel, to meet us at the ferry dock and get us safely in a tuk tuk. Angel was very good with communication and even left us a phone to contact him if needed. James was very quick on refunding the deposit. We would definitely stay here again!
If you are planning a trip to Utila you need to book the Purple Jawfish. It is the best place on the island to stay. The view of the water from the front porch swing is amazing. It looks just like the pictures. The house is clean and comfortable and is within walking distance of The Blue Bayou Beach Bar where we enjoyed great fish and shrimp tacos. Mike is the property manager and he will meet you at the ferry to give you all the information you need about the house and island. He will rent you a scooter as well as check on you daily. My husband and I have travelled a lot during our 34 years of marriage and this trip was at the top of the list.
The house was well appointed with everything you could need from housewares to a hammock. Instructions for everywhere and everyplace you could need or want to go. The house was a short walk into town but far enough from the hustle of the business area of Utila town. Rent a scooter to make getting into and out of town easy and fast (you can, and we did, rent the owner’s scooter).
Mike the property manager met us at the airport and checked on us daily providing us with helpful tips and suggestions throughout the week. One such suggestion was to walk the town area before going there with a scooter so you know what is there and where everything is. The downtown area traffic moves fast and can be difficult to maneuver if you don’t know where you are headed.
James, the owner (and Mike) were available at the drop of a line for any questions or issues that came up. Their response time was almost immediate. James provided a bevy of useful information and suggestions before heading to Utila and it was fun checking them off the list of things we did while there. Couldn’t have asked for better communication with an owner and his on site liaison.
The hummingbirds are magical and friendly (while sitting on the magnificent porch swing) as are the crabs who live on the side of the house (though they would hide after grabbing the pieces of bread I gave them). The snorkeling right out front of the house was both refreshing and fun.
While there is a public beach on the way into town (pretty close to the house) this property has its own. You will not be disappointed.
There are bars and restaurants within walking distance in either direction. And within a short walk you can hop on a boat that takes you to Neptune’s for the day. Neptunes has some pretty incredible beaches, snorkeling and great food.
Gorgeous little beach house!
The Purple Jawfish was stunning! Very well maintained, spotlessly clean, and stocked with everything we could have possibly needed for our stay. James, the owner, was amazing as well. He was always happy to answer our questions leading up to the trip and during our stay. He even helped us put together a trip to Sambo Creek when we were staying in the mainland, which was one of the highlights of our trip! Utila is a fun place to be! The people are amazing. We never once felt unsafe and we slept very well. Snorkeling right off the beach in front of the house is beautiful. Then we took a short walk to Coral View and snorkeled to the drop off, which was a whole different level of amazingness! I highly recommend it! James will rent you his scooter and that is a great and oh so fun way to see the island. Make sure to take a trip to Bando Beach Bar - it will quickly become your favorite too. Great food, amazing staff, perfect place to meet some locals and get even more tips about the island. Thanks so much, James, for letting us stay in your beautiful home! We couldn't have asked for anything more. This place truly has it all.
Beautiful, excellent location and super clean!!
Purple Jawfish Beach house is truly an amazing place to rent In Utila. The location is what makes it so great! While it is out of town it is only a short walk or scooter ride in, you have your own private little beach area(rare) and view from the house is postcard perfect! The house comes completely equipped with anything and everything to make your stay comfortable. The screened windows were awesome to let the beautiful breeze come in and we never had to worry about mosquitoes or sand flies coming in. The house is impeccabley clean and has a very cozy warm feeling to it! We had the greatest pleasure of meeting the owner James’s parents who were staying across the road. We were met at the ferry and put into a tuk - tuk which took us to the house. Then shown around and given directions for restaurants and the grocery store. James’s delightful parents were very quick to respond to any of our needs and were very knowledgeable about the island. They went above and beyond to make us very welcome ! We miss LJ and Vinny already!!
Thank you James for sharing your piece of heaven with us, we were there to just relax and reconnect. Purple Jawfish beach house did not disappoint , it was more than one could have hoped for!!!
We will be back. Moe and Ilona:)
Utila er en lille ø, men der er meget at gøre. Beliggende på 2. største koralrev i verden (Det mesoamerikanske Reef) dykning og snorkling er de aktiviteter, der først kommer til at tænke (det og året rundt hval haj observationer). Men der er så meget mere, hvis du er interesseret i at få mere end blot en billig og professionel PADI scuba certificering. Udforsk junglen og ferskvand huler. Test dit held til at finde den nedstyrtede fly, der ser lige ud af en episode af LOST.
