Ever think about living off grid? Having the blue Caribbean waters to wake up to every morning? Avoiding the high cost of power, have very few neighbors, your own private boat dock, and still have luxury items in your home for comfortable living? Here it is, TURNKEY just bring clothes!
Crystal Beach House is located on the Southwest shore of Utila just 6.5 miles from town and a mere mile from the charming fishing village located on Pigeon Cay and Jewel Cay. With 85 feet of prime, sandy beachfront, the property boasts beautifully designed outdoor areas. When you’re not in the water, enjoy working with local plantings in your own greenhouse, relaxing in the hammock area surrounded by mature coconut palms, and at night, enjoy bonfires in your stone fire pit.
Ready for the water? Take the short, landscaped walkway to the dock. Not only do you have easy entry here for snorkeling, the dock has overhead roofing and fish cleaning station. The dock includes two slips with boat lifts for ease in entering the clear Caribbean waters for fishing trips, diving or trips to town or the cays. The boat shown in the photos is available for purchase separately.
