Utila Tree House

Yes, it really is a house built in a tree.

The tree house is located in a large fig tree on the eastern side of Stuart's Hill, Utila's second highest point. It was custom built by Norwegian owner John Arne Løken, a trained carpenter, craftsman and artist. The tree house is the only building on the entire hill, surrounded by tropical fruit trees. Stuart's Hill is heralded for its panoramic view of the entire island, a sought after spot for sunsets.

The house boasts two floors aloft in a giant fig tree. First floor studio contains a full kitchen (oven, fridge, blender, coffee maker, pots, pans, all necessary dishes and silverware, etc.) and dining/living area plus queen bed surrounded by windows facing the eastern shore and sunrise.

The second floor is a full queen bedroom with skylight and stunning views through the glass-paned, easterly facing wall. Both floors have air-conditioners and fans, as well as custom-crafted louvered windows to catch the rich tropical breezes that only a house high in a tree can arrange.

There are three decks, meticulously designed around the fig tree to provide varying degrees of cool, leafy shade, each with its own generous view of rich green vegetation, perfectly set off by blue ocean and sky. From the top deck you can almost touch the whirling gulls, or Milky Way, depending on the time of day. Requisite hammocks provided, of course.

Complete bathroom with hot-water shower is located on the ground level, as well as a refreshing, private outdoor bucket shower on the first elevated deck.

The tree house is the best of both worlds: extremely private (nestled in the nature of Stuart's Hill, hidden from view and away from the noise and bustle of town) and yet just a few minutes' walk to the commercial center. Two bicycles are provided for guests.

The house is situated on the side of Stuart's Hill, and a two-minute walk to the top rewards with its 360-degree view of the island. Surrounding the tree house is an orchard of plantains, bananas, papayas, chilies, picantes, star fruit, limes, guavas and nonis, all of which are there for our guests. Just outside of the property lies Utila's Iguana Station, a research center and tourist attraction where you can learn about Utila's endangered endemic iguanas along with myriad other creatures who also call the island home.
