The Harbor House is a one of a kind property and the first three-story commercial and/or residential building at the Utila Cays. It is located directly behind the municipal dock and shares 28 feet of oceanfront with that dock. It is located in a traditional and functional fishing village known by the locals as Jewel Cay, also known as Suc-Suc Cay. Jewel/Suc-Suc Cay is the largest of the Utila Cays. The views from The Harbor House are of the main island of Utila to the north, the mountains of mainland Honduras across the vast blue stretch of sea to the south, as well views of sunrise and sunset to the east and west.
This unique property has a total of 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths and can function as a home and or also offers various income opportunities as vacation rental spaces and/or through utilizing a bright and inviting second story commercial space that could be rented out or operated as an internet cafe, a restaurant, a coffee and shack shop, an ice cream shop, or a pub just to name some of the possibilities! Home Features: The first floor contains 2 apartments each with a bedroom and full bath and one has a kitchenette and the other has room to add a kitchenette plus a utility space. Each of these spaces has their own separate entrances which allow it to be used as separate rentals or as the residence for the owner or for guests.
From a street-level entrance, stairs lead up to the second floor which opens into a colorful and welcoming space. The porthole doors and fishing nets hanging from the ceiling embrace the wharf atmosphere of the Harbor House. On this floor, a charming commercial space with a closed-off kitchen, a delightfully decorated bar, and a separate air-conditioned space with breath-taking ocean views invite visitors to kick back and enjoy the unhurried Caribbean lifestyle. This space is ideal for a small restaurant, coffee shop, deli, or similar that would be very welcomed in this part of the islands.
The third floor consists of a penthouse residential space ideal as an owner’s retreat or vacation rental. It features a large bedroom and full bathroom and a built-in bar for entertaining. The open floor plan of the main room has a full kitchen with a counter for eating, comfortable seating, and double doors that open to the balcony and pleasing tropical breezes and vistas.
