Staying at the Pineapple House for a week was truly one of the most wonderful, relaxing and enjoyable vacations I have ever had.
If what you're looking for is room service, resort style restaurants, bars and hundreds of strangers this is not the place for you. However, if what you're looking for is beautiful nature at it's best and most peaceful, a place to truly escape the rat race, a living space that has the highest level of interior design but is still inviting and calming, interesting locals and a vacation where you really can do as much or as little as you want...the Pineapple House is most definitely the place for you.
The house is fully stocked with your groceries when you arrive, so it couldn't be easier and Dave is always on hand to help you if you need something else.
It really is that simple. It really is Paradise Found.
many thanks sam, looking forward to seeing you again next year !!!!

After the excitement of Roatan, taking Captain Vern's yacht to Utila was like entering Paradise. Beautiful white sandy beaches and lush trees framing a house that was absolutely breathtaking. It was such a treat to enter the Pineapple house for the first time. Elegantly appointed rooms, a kitchen my wife would kill for at home, and absolutely gorgeous wood flooring throughout. The views from the wrap around deck were amazing, allowing one to look out into the Carribean, read, snooze, or whatever your heart could desire. We were so excited to snorkle, it was my wifes first time, and the reef right off the beach was amazing, we saw every color of the rainbow in the reef fish as well as barracuda and sting rays.
The staff that serviced the house were always responsive and absolutely the best; happy and willing to help us access the island, the town, and the sites the island had to offer. We are so thankful that Laurence and David and Peter in making our trip to Paradise perfect.

to whom it may concern. my husband and i just returned from a wonderful stay at the pineapple house on utila. no crowds, no traffic, no noise. just an empty beach, palm trees and a lovely new house. we rented as a two bedroom and it was perfect. we had some rain showers and some very hot days but when the breeze blew we opened all the doors around the balcony, it was like an open pavilion and there was no need for the a/c. the house has lovely furniture, kitchen etc., the bedroom was romantic(four poster bed) and comfy and the bathrooms very nice. most days were spent snorkeling the reef in front of the house, sunbathing and drinking salva vida, the local beer. the sunsets from the deck above the dock were beautiful (nice and private if you like to sunbathe au natural). we also scuba dived with capt. morgans, they do a two tank dive each morning and picked us up/dropped us off in their boat. we grilled fish most days, ate at utopia resort a couple of times and danced and drank rum with the locals on the cay one night, which was tons of fun and quite a cultural experience. peter the caretaker and dave steffens the rental agent took good could care of us and peter took us to water cay one day, he then came back at the end of the day to pick us up, we had the whole island to ourselves and sitting in the water watching the sunset was awesome (note to owner:- the house needs a cooler to carry beers on boat trips). this was our second trip to the island and we're so happy we chose to stay out of town this time, it was a completely different ( better) experience.

Wonderful, Fabulous, Beautiful! Only a few of the things I could say about The Pineapple house
It would take a year to explain how wonderful our stay at The Pineapple house became. We were greeted at the dock by Laurence, our guest and as it turned out a good friend. At The Pineapple house we were welcomed by peace and nature with its coconut palms
The Pineapple house has so much wonderful character within its walls. The history of how it became, was intriguing and very interesting.
The villa is exquisitely decorated and yet we felt right at home. We stayed 7 days and wanted to stay a few more after we settled in.
We are already scheduling our next trip to the Pineapple house. The Pineapple house is for those that like peace and quiet from the everyday rat race.
The grounds at The Pineapple house are detailed in beautiful trees, almond, coconut, and banana palm trees.
the beach is clean and the reef is astounding, just a few feet away from the shore.

We were greeted by the very pleasant and knowledgeable David Steffan with
Utila Apartment Finders upon landing at the airport. David gave us a great
tour of town and lots of advice before shuttling us by boat to the pineapple
house. We were delighted upon our arrival to see the fridge and shelves fully
stocked for the week. The house is just beautiful with excellent views and
top notch construction throughout. The shutters are screened in to prevent
bugs from getting in, but still let the ocean breeze roll through. There is
also air conditioning throughout.
Just down the beach there is a resort called Utopia Dive Village, they are an
all inclusive diving resort but the owner of the pineapple house (Laurence)
advised us that they are happy to have guests for drinks and dinner. We
advise going down the day before to let them know you'll be joining them.
The food, drinks, and people were just awesome - we really enjoyed it and
highly recommend it. The prices were quite reasonable as well.
Make sure you enjoy the excellent snorkelling off of one of the two docks on
the property, and take the kayaks to the Cayes for a half day as well. We
didn't do any diving but heard excellent reviews from many people that had.
There are a few things to check out in Utila so it's worth it to go in for a day
and rent a bicycle to tour around.
We read of some crime issues prior to our departure but had no issues
whatsoever, and felt safe the entire time. The house is accessible by boat
only, and has a night security guard as well as guard dogs that were friendly
during the day but alerted you to anyone else's presence at night. We did
not find them annoying at all.
Overall I would not hesitate to recommend the Pineapple House, it was a
very relaxing and memorable vacation. The owner, Laurence, is a very
friendly and charming man and obviously cares a great deal about the
environment and his homes. If you go, you will not regret it.

When we arrived into Utila by air, we were greeted by David Steffan, who was our contact before we arrived on Utila. David was very professional and he made sure we had everything we needed and arranged our water taxi to the house via Peters' boat. Once we got to the Pineapple house, the house was fully stocked and the house was beautiful. We had everything we needed, just like at home. The beds were comfy and the Air conditioning worked great. On treasure beach, where The Pineapple house is located, there is a community pier where you the snorkeling is fantastic! All sorts of hard & soft coral, plus an ambundance of sea life right in front of your eyes! Then, if you wanted fresh seafood, all we needed to do was call Peter (who lives across the channel on the Cayes, and he can bring you what ever you want for dinner (snapper, lobsters, etc). What more do you want for a great place to visit at very decent rates. When we come back to Utila, we would definitely stay at the Pineapple house again. Highly recommend this house to anyone who wants to get away from it all, and enjoy some of the best diving/snorkeling in the Western Caribbean. A+++++++++

WALKING ADVENTURES , AND THE TOWN OF UTILA HAD A GREAT MIX OF
DIVE ENTHUSIASTS COMING AND GOING , I MY SELF JUST SETTLED FOR THE

we has a wonderful time at the pineapple house. we weren't quite sure
what to expect when the little boat picked us up from utila town but as
soon as we pulled up at treasure beach twenty minutes later, we knew
we'd made the right decision. the home is brand new (i think we were
the first guests) and as advertised, very private. lovely home, nicely
furnished, high end towels, sheets etc.. we had the owner stock us up
with food and drinks before we arrived, so we had no need to leave,
although we walked about half a mile down the beach to utopia hotel
a couple of times for dinner (very good). the owner was at another
home a few hundred feet down the beach and was helpful when
needed but discrete, other than him, the night watchman and a few
islanders who walked past collecting fruit and crabs, we hardly saw a
soul, perfect! very romantic location, lots of privacy and a lovely
house, just what we needed. it was tough to leave and go home to n.y.
