What Past Guests Are Saying
An Easy Place to Stay and a Hard Place to Leave
Even before we arrived at Jerico Gardens we knew we would like the place because of the prompt responses to our reservation inquiry and answers to our questions. Tony & Jo also provided a list of groceries they could pick up for us to make the move-in process easier (like coffee and breakfast makings!) and were there to meet us at the ferry and give us a little tour around the island. We felt at home immediately in "our" apartment and it was clean, sunny and bright, comfortable and well cared for. Juan and Blanca checked in with us every day or two and were available to help us whenever we asked (from bringing the big bottles of drinking water up to our apartment to picking up our laundry and cleaning weekly). We had a plumbing problem that was resolved in a timely fashion and our coffee maker was replaced immediately when we said it didn't work. It was a pleasure to greet Juan and Blanca every day and chat about the island happenings.
The people of Utila are amazingly friendly, welcoming and non-pretentious. We kept busy swimming and snorkeling,horseback riding, trying out several restaurants and meeting people. We made several good friends. and saying goodbye to Utila and the people we met was a lot more difficult than we had thought it would be.
Jerico Gardens was a great place to stay, a good value for the money and totally earns its 5 star rating!
Marco & Laura
We had a great time in Utila at the Gardens. Tony and Jo are wounderful persons and we felt like home.
The apartment is so lovely, clean and well maintained. The kids loved the fantastic garden. We will be back next year for sure! We reccomend this property to everybody!!!
Angels of the Island
Tony and Jo took care of us better than family. Without them - who knows if we would have even made it to the island and we certainly wouldn't have made it off in time! From weeks before we got there, to our arrival, to a wonderful dinner and sunset and well beyond... really the character limit for reviews wouldn't allow me to list all of the things they helped us with let alone how pleasant their company was whenever we happened to run into them on the island! The worst thing I could possibly say is that we are now eternally indebted to Tony and Jo! This was my girlfriend and I's first vacation (together or ever) and needless to say we had a lot of questions and concerns - Tony and Jo were always sure to respond patiently and quickly. Always with great advice and suggestions. We are already planning our next trip back and its a no-brainer where we will be staying! Jericho Gardens immediately felt like a home. It was peaceful, cozy, fully furnished, quiet, there was even a nice classical guitar waiting for me (a special request i put in weeks before!) The a/c is instant and powerful, we never had an uncomfortable night. Bananas and avocados were plentiful. The hammock peaceful. The walk into town is 5 minutes and pleasant. You can easily catch a tut-tut for $2 total (for 2 people). One of our favorite things though was catching a local soccer game right on the corner on Sunday. From the clear blue waters, the caribbean breeze, to the friendly locals - Utila is heaven on earth and Tony and Jo are its angels. Thank you both so much!
Nice place everithing was really clean just feel like i was in home but whit nature
The place was great awesome atention everithing was perfect
Thanks Tony and Jo
Same comfort of your own house
Coming from Europe and have the sensation to be at home it's not easy.
Well that's what happened to me.
Joe and Tony are great landlord and more than that.
There ospitality has been incredible and we had great time. This is a spot not to miss!
Thanks guys you're amazing
Great Place to Stay!
Great place to stay, just a 10 minute walk from main
street! If you're planing to go in couple or a big group, this is the option to be.
Jo & Tony (owners) are great hosts!
San Pedro Sula
Lovely apartment, everything you need is there. Breeze at nights is incredible we didn't use the a/C at all. Definitely going back when traveling to Utila.
San Pedro Sula, Honduras

The gardens where exactly what i was looking for, quite, little bit apart but not to far, clean its great for a couple, and the service ia great the proce is great. When i get back to utila im totaly booking inthe gardens again..
Ashley & Herb
Spent a month at the top floor of the Gardens; it was very quiet and clean. We had some challenges that were quickly resolved by Juan and Blanca regarding power. Power in Utila has a pay as you go system, at least in the unit we were in, and the key box was not working so Juan and Blanca had to change out the keypads several times and also go out for power as well. Juan went one day in the pouring rain so I wouldn't have to...thanks to him. There was a power consumption problem that was also rectified by Jo once she realized there was a problem and quickly provided a solution and refund. Overall, the Gardens are very safe, comfortable and quiet. Price was a selling point for us. We were away from the craziness of downtown, the yard was beautiful and over all was a retreat from the activity of Utila. I would recommend this property to anyone.
Response from Tony & Jo - 03/14/2013
Thanks for your kind words and comments ~ they are greatly appreciated! Providing safe, secure and affordable lodging is something that we take great pride in and we are happy that we met your expectations! Like most of the properties on Utila we, too, have been experiencing issues with UPCO, the private power provider on the island, and we are thankful to them for assisting us with the issues in their hardware. With new meters finally installed (it took them a while to get them) we are told that the problems with that system have been taken care of. We appreciate that you were patient with all parties involved, and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
Family Friendly in Utila Paradise
My husband and I, along with our two girls (ages 3 and 5) rented one of the apts at the four plex that is The Gardens in Utila Honduras. We stayed for one month and now wished we had booked for two! From the moment Jo & Tony met us at the ferry we knew we had made the right decision. They are kind, considerate, and so loving to our girls. They catered to our every need. The apartments are clean, safe, Cozy and turn-key. The only thing missing was a hammock, and within a day, Jaun (caretaker at the Gardens) was hanging one on our deck. We walked and rode our rented bikes all over Utila. Jo and Tony arranged any special trips for us, and were always attentive to our needs. Like fresh OJ at our doorstep each Sat!! Blanca takes care of cleaning your apt each week and she can do your laundry for a small fee as well. Both Juan and Blanca were kind and always went out of their way to be helpful. We so enjoyed cooking meals as a family in our "Utila home", while enjoying our dinners on the deck with the cool breezes from the sea. Utila has truly dug a hole in our hearts and we highly recommend a visit at any age. Sand, sea, and sun for all on Utila. We enjoyed Diving on gorgeous reefs, snorkeling, swimming at Chepes Beach, and wandering the town while enjoying the culture that is Utila. Many friends were made! We are already planning our trip next year at The Gardens, but this time it will be for two months instead on one!!
a & s
great stay, we hope to come back
Tony and Jo were great hosts during our stay on Utila. Our cottage was clean and quiet and safe and we were happy to have a fully functional kitchen to come back to for dinners after our days out snorkeling. The air con was great too when the nights were too hot. Nice place, nice people.
Our family stayed at the Gardens for 4 weeks beginning late December 2012 - January 2013. We loved staying at the Gardens. It was clean & comfortable, as we expected. We were traveling with a few other families, so we all rented apartments at the Gardens. It was an excellent location for our group.
The highlight of the Gardens was our hosts. Tony & Jo went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. They were a phone call away if we needed anything and were an excellent source of information on local sites, activities, dining, etc.
The grounds are beautiful. I have attached a few pictures taken around the apartments. Our children had a blast exploring the property.
Really was a pleasure to stay at teh Gardens, Tony and Jo are gr
i appreciated the personal service of Tony and Jo. the rooms were very clean, and any thing we requested they did there best to make it happen. they were very helping to make us feel safe and comfortable on the Island.
The grounds were kept very nice, and the staff was very willing to help too.
Would stay again,

Awesome and comfortable
Great room! Cozy and clean, hot water and all the "American kitchen amenities" my husband and I enjoyed staying here. It was less than 5min walk to our favorite bar/restaurant. Much nicer than what we saw downtown. Tony and Jo are great! Looking forward to returning to the island for some croquet. They have some wonderful bannanas too.
The best place in Utila
It was a great experience. It is a perfect place to relax away from the noise, but accessible to the bars. The apartments are very clean and have everything you need to spend a nice stay. Tony and Jo were very friendly and attentive. I think there is no other place like it on the island. It is wonderful
Cedar Hill, TX
Clean. Convenient. Friendly. Perfect.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Tony and Jo. The apartments were spacious and clean. The shore was less than a 5 minute walk. They were always there to help us, not only with things related to the rental but also advice on where to shop and help planning the rest of our trip. Tony and Jo were so great with our kids. Our trip could not have been more perfect. You have to try the apple-bananas that grow on the property!

A home away from home
Jo and Tony were awesome hosts to us during our four month stay at the Gardens at Jerico... They were available to us whenever we had questions, or needed to make traveling arrangements, or even just to talk. They made us feel very welcome and safe, and gave us an overall excellent experience.
The Gardens at Jerico is located a bit up the road from the main street... which is great because it offers a quiet place to go and a nice little neighbourhood.
The apartment itself is very clean, spacious, and has almost everything you need.
Love The Gardens at Jerico :)

Gardens at Jerico
My first visit to Honduras was a pleasure due to Tony and Jo! From the moment I stepped on the dock from the ferry I was at home. The lovely Laguna Vista property is located in a quiet neighborhood walking distance to town. Although you are away from the noise of bars and restaurants they are less than a 10 minute walk away. It is also conveniently located to grocery stores within walking distance. The apartment, and all Tony & Jo's properties are clean and feature air flow from three directions that allows you comfort without running air conditioning. There is cable, free wifi, fresh apple bananas and flowers, clean high quality linens. Purified water is provided in a 5 gallon jug and will be replaced almost before needed. Coffee, sugar and creamer is provided so you can retire to your room upon arrival without worry for the next day. Tony and Jo are an amazing resource for Utila activities. Tony has done diving all around the island and can hook you up with a dive shop that can provide whatever dive services you require. Some dive shops even pick you up at the properties and drop you off when all is done.

lovely pool area
Our family very much enjoyed our stay. We spent most of the time in and around the pool. We found that the kitchen did lack many supplies, however. The staff were great and very helpful.
Response from Tony & Jo - 06/03/2012
We are terribly sorry for your needs not being met and we welcome your suggestions on how we might improve our service!

Our guests are always welcome to request any extras that are required and if at all possible we will provide those extras (baking dishes, extra cutlery, pots, pans, etc.).
Again, any suggestions are most welcome as our mission is to provide the best service we can to our clients and to make their vacation as effortless as possible. We want you to feel at home and we are sorry that we were not adequate in our efforts.

The perfect getaway
Jerico Gardens is exactly as described, it is clean, comfortable and private. You will find all the amenities you would expect in someone's home and everything is very well maintained. I did not want to stay in a dirty $5 a night hostel nor a $300 a night resort far away from Main St. and Jerico Gardens was the perfect fit. Of course, as everyone will say, the best part about staying there is access to Tony & Jo. You could not find a nicer and more accommodating pair of people. Beyond picking us up from the dock, they took us on a tour around Main St. while pointing out all the places to go and telling us wonderful stories about the island and the people. They arranged all our requests to spectacular success, including 3 days of diving and a beautiful and delicious surprise dinner with a private chef. Jo also gives amazing massages for a steal at their house a few minutes away - but book her early or you might not get a chance to experience it! In the end, Tony also helped us out in a pickle when our taxi driver didn't show up in time to take us to the airport. So as a sometimes uppity New Yorker, I would highly recommend staying in the Jerico Gardens apartment for being clean and comfortable and Tony & Jo for being awesome.
clean, comfortable, and good value
As all the reviewers have noted, Tony and Jo are super hosts, making sure guests have everything they need. The apartments are very cute, tastefully decorated, and spacious - ideal for those tired of being in tiny hotel rooms. They have full kitchens and living area, and Tony and Jo are happy to accomodate if you have kids to bring along and will need an extra bed brought in.
san pedro sula
The apartment is very functional with everything needed for a family of 2 adults and two children
The service provided by the owners was very good, they are pro-children, and are very good people. We were greeted at the dock.
The apartment is located 800 meters from the main street, no traffic noises and / or music at night.
Definitely return another time.
Response from Tony & Jo - 04/19/2012
We truly enjoyed hosting you and your family!! The Gardens location is perfect for children and families!! The quiet neighborhood and fenced grounds work well, especially for smaller children.
3 days was just too short!
Spent 4 lovely days at the Garden at Jerico. Tony and Jo welcomed us at the airport and took us to the apartment. The apartment is just as described. The bed is comfortable. There is an a/c unit in the bedroom, but the ceiling fans are perfect for sleeping at night. The location is up hill from town, but just close enough. The best part about our stay was our hosts, Tony and Jo. They showed us around, connected us with a great dive operator and introduced us to everyone.
We came as tourists and felt as if we left family behind. Tony and Jo were there to answer any question or help out in anyway they could. It was an awesome adventure!!
Response from Tony & Jo - 04/19/2012
Thanks for the great review! One of the best compliments we receive from our guests is that they actually get exactly what is advertised!! We hope your next trip to Utila is longer next time!
Outstanding! Could not ask for more.
Nothing was missing, surpassed our families expectations!
Defenetly in the top five of the islands rental properties.
Response from Tony & Jo - 04/19/2012
We were very impressed with your family and are looking forward to your return to the island!!
Paradise Found !!!
A Truly Enjoyable Experience
I have been visiting Utila for several years now and have stayed at various hotels while I am building my house. I wish I had met Tony & Jo much sooner and stayed at their accommodations because I was much more comfortable than any of the other places I have stayed, for example the cottage is actually decorated which helped maintain the island flavor. The lay out was efficient yet cozy and it was easy to feel at home. The location on Jerico Road is quiet and peacfull, yet within an easy walk into town. Tony & Jo were ever so helpful with any request presented to them and took a personal intrest in me as a person, not just a client.
Crystal Beach, Florida
Delightful Time at the Gardens
Tony and Jo were so nice during our stay. Picking us up and transporting us and luggage. Then beautiful flowers and bananas in our room when we arrived. The room had a nice breeze flowing through the entire area. A/C was available for sleeping if necessary. Very clean and had everything needed for our stay. Coffee, paper towels, bottled water,etc...much more then we expected! The pricing was very reasonable and the location was within walking distance to the main area of town. Tony and Jo were only a phone call away for anything we needed. We highly recommend The Gardens at Jerico.

Can't wait to go back!!
We stayed at The Gardens for just over a week and had the best experience! The apartment is absolutely beautiful - nice furniture, comfortable bed, double balcony and so much more. Tony & Jo were incredibly accommodating and were so kind and helpful. They really have thought of and provided everything. We are so lucky to have left with them as friends! I wouldn't change a thing about our Utila experience, and staying at the Gardens definitely made it something we aren't soon to forget. Already dreaming of returning...
Our stay in Utila was radically relaxing, friendly and fun.
The owners did a wonderful job of making us feel welcome, comfortable, and helping us make arrangements, get information, and have fun. The apartment was just what we were looking for - very clean, comfortable, awesome breeze, good location close to most things, with a staff that helped us in any way they could. We had a great time staying at The Gardens and would recommend it highly.
Seven weeks of peaceful, safe island living time in the sun.
We stayed in Unit C, which was just as described in the web site. The unit was clean, well appointed and had great breezes to enjoy the decks. When we needed anything, like an extra table or pitcher our request was immediately handled. The gardner/handyman Juan and the manager/maid Blanca were very nice to work with and helped to make our stay enjoyable.
Jo and Tony go the extra mile to make your visit perfect. We can't say enough for their warm and caring hospitality. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend their properties to anyone having the opportunity to visit Utila.

The Gardens at Jerico were beautiful! The grounds well kept, the rooms are awesome, and Tony and Jo just topped it all off...it was a wonderful holiday experience for me...would go back in a heartbeat!
Salt Lake City, Utah
Love Utila and going back again this year
Tony and Jo are the best, and we have rented from them every year. Their places are well-kept and they will make sure all your needs are met. They are one of the main reasons we keep coming back to Utila.
Too Much Fun!
I stayed at the Gardens for four days with my family, and I never wanted to leave! The rooms were great- comfortable and clean. Tony and Jo were the best hosts on the island, they took care of absolutely everything! They took care of kayaking, diving, horseback riding, and showed us all the best places to hangout on Utila. Im grateful for an unforgettable stay, and hope to return soon!
Like staying with friends at a wonderful clean and equipped cabi
I would definitely stay at The Gardens at Jerico again, felt really welcomed and taken care of by the owners, who are wonderful hosts who go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay. The cabin itself is very clean, and I love the fact that it was equipped with everything you need to have a pleasant stay, highly recommend!
