The canal site allows for peace and serenity with the shore of the Caribbean Sea and the beach less than a ten minute walk away.

The four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms can accommodate a large family or plenty of guests and a loft space can be utilized for an additional sleeping area, study, play room or exercise. Careful consideration during the construction phase positioned Casa del Capitan on the 0.52 acre lot so that the predominant easterly trade winds blow through and act as a natural cooling system. Outdoor living areas mesh seamlessly with the indoors through glass paned French doors which fold back to combine the spaces and also allow in natural light and the brilliance of the tropical environment. An observation deck on the 4th floor of the home offers unparalleled views of the island of Utila. The large, wrap around covered patio on the main level of the home contains a barbecue and food preparation area as well as a conveniently placed outdoor shower with a door that leads into the powder room on the same floor.
