We were seeking a remote, authentic, water-centric vacation location for our family of 5. Our 10 days at The Coral House exceeded our expectations in every way. If you are seeking an all inclusive, service heavy experience, bars/restaurants/nightlife, the ability to run to the store for an ice cream (or the ability to run anywhere), this is NOT the place for you. But if you are looking for a spectacular location, are self-sufficient, can cook with limited supplies/ingredients (the provisioning service was very helpful), can make your own fun with your travel companions, books, and the outrageous water/reef outside your door, then this place is absolute heaven. We had an awesome trip. Thank you Dave, Trish, Ronald, Bogdan and Laurence. We are already planning our return!
Staying at the Coral house on Treasure beach is paradise! The house is absolutely amazing and the setting is stunning. Unspoiled and remote.
Trish and David who manage the property are absolutely wonderful and help arrange everything from our transportation to our food and the all important rum! From the warm welcome at the airport to the lovely not goodbye, but see you later at the ferry dock – our days were just incredible!
When not ‘busy’ scuba diving with Utila Cays Diving [much recommended!] and snorkeling with whale sharks, dolphins & sea horses, we spend most of our time chilling outside on the deck, by the campfire or on the top of our ‘private’ dock watching the sunset.
Melvin, the local fisherman supplied us with fresh fish daily – heaven!
Could not recommend this place more! Fantastic holiday!
I will be honest, We were a little apprehensive about travelling to Honduras. All of our apprehension was completely dissolved as we boarded a ferry in La Ceiba and travelled to our final destination in Utila....The Coral House. We were greeted by the property Managers Dave and Trish. They are far more than Property managers, they are Concierges, translators, caretakers ... and just amazing. We had a small health Crisis (not related to the trip) and they helped us every step of the way. They went above and far beyond. I cant imagine better people to have had as our contact. Warm, Friendly and a tremendous giving Spirit.
The House... OH MY GOSH. We were craving a beautiful, somewhat secluded , private vacation spot for our anniversary and that is EXACTLY what we got. We were able to pick and choose all the activity we wanted but for us we wanted very little. The property is exactly as described but way more beautiful. We had peace and quiet . We met some wonderful people while we were there. Ronald.. our water Taxi guy and connection to the most delicious fish ( Rock Fish) delivered right to us. Ronald is very gentle in his boatmanship and just a warm and wonderful person. His Brother and Sister in law made us a meal (take out style )and delivered it right to the house.. Super delicious.
Don't hesitate in booking here... If you are looking for a Safe, Tranquil Holiday in an absolutely Breathtaking environment.. THIS IS IT ! Thank you Dave, Trish and Ronald for helping us make our Anniversary Super Special. Hope to be back again SOON :)
We had a magical Christmas week at the Coral House! The home and the island truly were everything (and more!) than we expected. The property managers are fabulous. They went above and beyond to help facilitate a wonder vacation.
My husband and I decided to do a quick little get away to disconnect with the world and recharge; we couldn't have found a more perfect place to do it than the Coral House.
After a long journey from California, we were met at the airport by Dave, the property manager, who made us feel immediately welcome with his warm hello and genuine smile. After a short trip from the airport through town, we jumped into a waiting dinghy and were whisked across the ocean to the remote Treasure Beach.
Let me tell you: Treasure Beach is exactly that. A treasure. The view is absolutely breathtaking, the water was warm and clear, and the house reef is full of life just waiting to be snorkeled with. At night the sky was full of stars and the milky way, the water was a firework show as the little fish spawned and bioluminesced below.
The Coral House itself is an adorable Caribbean style beach house with stairs that lead straight to the beach and that are only a few strides from the water. The decor is fresh, comfy, and beach modern. The kitchen has everything you need - especially since Dave and Trish (his lovely wife) do all the shopping prior to arrival.
Treasure Beach and the house are so private and remote. It was all peace and quiet - they don't even offer TV or Internet. Aside from the occasional local who strode across the beach and waved a friendly hello, we didn't really see anyone - unless we wanted to. Then all we needed to do was call Dave and Trish.
Dave and Trish were so much fun to talk to, we really enjoyed spending time with them. They arranged any trips we wanted to take into town and recommended a few places to hang out for food and/or drinks and Internet (if needed) if there was a day we didn't want to cook for ourselves. But, frankly, we were enjoying being on our own so much, we didn't really want to leave the beach to do anything but dive.
We went diving with a great little dive shop called Utila Cayes Diving located on a little caye just a stones throw away from the beach - they picked us up at our dock! Bogden and Mike were great to dive with. The water was super clear, the reef was alive with fish (BIG!), and the lion fish hunting was pretty cool to watch. The best was being able to play with the nurse sharks that are found in the marine reserve on the north side of the island.
With all the diving, eating, sunning, and reading the week went by way too quickly and we never missed TV or internet once.
We plan to be back.
