About Laurence Hegarty

we love to travel and love to dive, that's what first brought us to utila. we designed and oversaw the construction of the coral house and we couldn't be prouder of this beach front paradise.

Laurence Hegarty purchased this house in 2007

Why Laurence Hegarty chose Utila

we 'discovered' treasure beach in 2005 and were instantly hooked. utila reminded us of ambergris caye belize back in the 1990's, before the cruise ships and condo developments arrived.

as one of only a dozen or so homes spread along 2 miles of beach front, the coral house assures peace, privacy and an escape from the tourist crowds.

What makes this house unique

snorkel the beautiful coral reef in front of the house, dive the largest reef in the western hemisphere, deep sea or flats fish and kayak to deserted islands. collect shells, pick coconuts, sea grapes and breadfruit, watch beautiful sunsets and stargaze at night, this is what the rest of the caribbean used to be like.

Perfect return visit, already planning a third trip.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the coral house and it was just as wonderful as it was five years ago.

The house is comfortable, clean, well maintained and the setting is absolutely beautiful.

If you want world class snorkeling literally 60 feet from the door, this is the place.

We love the serenity of the location, the empty beach and the natural environment of the surroundings. The stars are beautiful at night and you can hear the sound of the water when you lay in bed, no noise, no traffic, just nature.

This time we went to the island with a group of 12 friends for our bi-annual dive trip so we booked both of the rental houses on the beach, the coral house and the pineapple house. Both houses are comparable, so everyone was happy. Our entire group had a great time and all agreed that we will return again, that has never happened after our previous dive group trips to Mexico and Belize.

We dove with Utila Cays Diving, they picked us up in their boat each morning and we had the entire boat and two dive masters just for our group. The service they provided was superior, we did a total of 10 dives with them and were lucky enough to see a whale shark and on two occasions dolphins.

We can't say enough about the property caretakers Trish and Dave, they really are genuinely caring people and helped us arrange everything from flights to diving, they even stocked the houses with food and drinks and arranged for a local couple to make us dinners a few times.

We highly recommend the coral house and the neighboring pineapple house.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I will be honest, We were a little apprehensive about travelling to Honduras. All of our apprehension was completely dissolved as we boarded a ferry in La Ceiba and travelled to our final destination in Utila....The Coral House. We were greeted by the property Managers Dave and Trish. They are far more than Property managers, they are Concierges, translators, caretakers ... and just amazing. We had a small health Crisis (not related to the trip) and they helped us every step of the way. They went above and far beyond. I cant imagine better people to have had as our contact. Warm, Friendly and a tremendous giving Spirit.

The House... OH MY GOSH. We were craving a beautiful, somewhat secluded , private vacation spot for our anniversary and that is EXACTLY what we got. We were able to pick and choose all the activity we wanted but for us we wanted very little. The property is exactly as described but way more beautiful. We had peace and quiet . We met some wonderful people while we were there. Ronald.. our water Taxi guy and connection to the most delicious fish ( Rock Fish) delivered right to us. Ronald is very gentle in his boatmanship and just a warm and wonderful person. His Brother and Sister in law made us a meal (take out style )and delivered it right to the house.. Super delicious.

Don't hesitate in booking here... If you are looking for a Safe, Tranquil Holiday in an absolutely Breathtaking environment.. THIS IS IT ! Thank you Dave, Trish and Ronald for helping us make our Anniversary Super Special. Hope to be back again SOON :)

Perfection--a true Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Spending a week at the Coral House in Utila left us in awe. Everything was exactly as advertised, and so much more. How could we possibly describe the atmosphere of peace and wonder of the perfection we found in the entire surroundings. The house itself is beautiful, not overdone, nothing left undone. The beach is kept very clean, the ocean is breathtaking. The nature all around so amazing yet not intrusive.

Dave and Trish, the managers, are the perfect couple for the job of guiding and assisting on this vacation. They let us know ahead of time of anything that we may need to be aware of, for example, the no see um bugs. We were informed about them, given ideas as to what to do to prepare ourselves and as a result, these little creatures did not cause us a lot of grief. Dave and Trish were always available during our stay at Coral house if we needed anything at all, they always came up aces in providing for everything we needed. One night, the hydro went out, Trish made a point of calling us to inform us that she had already called the power company to find out what was going on and let us know approx when we should be expecting hydro again. Dave and Trish are very considerate and extremely kind, available yet not in our space.

We would highly recommend the Coral House, and yes, we would return, in a heartbeat. Words can honestly not describe the beauty, serenity and aliveness of this little island Utila and the Coral House is the perfect spot to be!

Little slice of paradise!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Coral House on Treasure Beach was wonderful in so many ways! Dave and Trish, the property managers, went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. Dave provides door to door service; he picked us up at the airport and waited until our flight took off on our way out. If you are adventurous, enjoy the water (snorkeling or scuba), and like a place to yourselves, I highly recommend it! The reef is pristine and teeming with beautiful fish and coral formations. Neptune's Restaurant is about an hour kayak trip away and is definitely worth it!

A magical, authentic island experience!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our Christmas week stay at the Coral House was wonderful. The home was welcoming and very clean. We spent most of our time exploring the reef located mere steps from the home! octopus, starfish, rays, urchins.....our 5 year old had an experience of a life-time. And, I can't say enough about the property managers. They are very knowledgeable regarding the island, its history an the people who call it home. It really was a magical Christmas week in Utila. Thank you Dave and Trish!

Perfect Vacation - Pristine Location

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic time at Treasure Beach! The Coral House is gorgeous and located in a secluded and pristine location, which is very difficult to come across these days. Dave and Trish (the property managers) are the nicest and most knowledgeable people and will assist you through the planning process, as well as while you are on the island. The house reef is healthy and teeming with life, we saw many creatures we had never seen before. We spent most of our days snorkeling and sitting on the dock, relaxing and watching the sea life go by. The snorkeling here is world class, some of the best we have ever seen, and there was not one other person in the water while we were there, complete solitude. We also enjoyed stargazing at night, the Milky Way is stunning from the upper deck of the dock. We were fortunate enough to be there during the peak of a meteor shower, so we saw countless meteors as we lay on the lounge chairs. If you appreciate nature, enjoy snorkeling/diving, and are looking for privacy and relaxation, then this is the perfect place for you.
