About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home on the Caribbean Oceanfront

WindTryst: a love affair with the wind and the sea.

This new home has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths [ 2 upstairs & 1 downstairs]. It is located in the exclusive Tradewinds neighborhood on Utila. This home can sleep 6 comfortably in queen size beds.

The home is tastefully furnished with custom made Honduran cabinets, hardwood floors, custom doors and windows made on the mainland. The kitchen has stainless appliances {microwave, refrigerator, range/oven and dishwasher} for everything needed to cook yourself or hire a chef for a gourmet meal, which is available on request. Granite counter tops exist in the kitchen and all bathrooms. A washer and dryer are located in the upstairs unit.

The Great room has a 22 foot ceiling, 8 french doors & large custom windows which offer priceless views and breezes of Paradise Cove and the Caribbean Sea. Beautiful sunrise views are standard with this home. All tableware, linens and bath towels are provided for your convenience. The home is fully air conditioned and 14 ceiling fans are located throughout the home and patios. Two screened patios overlook Paradise Cove for guests to enjoy morning coffee, afternoon cocktails or dining. This is a true turn key home which allows you minimal luggage to bring upon arrival.

Diving and fishing trips are easily arranged with the numerous dive shops on Utila. Spectacular snorkeling and diving in the tropical waters is accessible just steps from the front patio into the most beautiful cove on Utila. Paradise Cove has a small iron shore which is abundant with numerous tropical fish for your convenience of swimming directly from the home. WindTryst also has an outdoor shower and tub to rinse your dive gear.

Experience a rare Caribbean vacation on this little known island of Utila in a tastefully furnished home with unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea. Walking distance to every dive shop and town takes about 15 minutes. Tuk Tuks are available for rides to and from town at minimal cost.

The downstairs bedroom has a separate, indoor entrance and a fully equipped kitchen. We spent two weeks every month on the island supervising the construction of our home and personally designed the floor plan and structure.

what a fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

for many years we have spent a month in Utila in the lovely tradewinds/paradise cove area. This is quiet and isolated, but still easy to get to town for dinner, just as easy to walk a hundred yards at night and see the island sky as it used to be, nothing but the distant glow of Roatan and Cayos Cachinos on the horizon. We felt extremely fortunate to be able to stay at this lovely house this past winter, the best location and house on the island in our opinion. the owners are super nice, the gal who manages the place on the island, who we have known for years is an absolute doll, my only regret is not being able to rate it more than a 5 star experiance.!

Utila Island is a truly laid back venue catering to scuba divers and snorkeler's needs. Even our non-water friends will totally enjoy the slower pace of the Western Caribbean.

There are 20 dive shops and an equal number of open air and non-open air restaurants, giving you multiple choices each day for meals. The island even has a cinema.

Utila sits on the 2nd longest reef in the world stretching from the Yucatan Peninsula, South then East to surround the Cayman Islands and Cuba.
