Guanaja, the most mountainous of the Bay Islands, is 11 miles
long and 3 miles wide, and is located some forty miles off the
northern coast of Honduras. Originally "discovered" by Columbus
on his final voyage to the New World, its appearance has changed
little over the centuries. There are no roads here, and little
commercial development to detract from the natural beauty.
Deserted white beaches, virgin jungle, crystal blue waters, and a
thriving barrier coral reef make Guanaja one of the Caribbean's
most appealing "undiscovered" destinations.
Island House is located on the beach of Guanaja's mostly
uninhabited north shore. The resort consists of a main house and
two guest houses, which accommodate a maximum of twelve
people. The large comfortable rooms are of island-style
architecture with louvered windows, Spanish tile floors, and
balconies with ocean views. The bar is located on the dock, which
affords spectacular views of the beautiful Caribbean sunset.
The owner and founder of Island House is Bo Bush, a local
islander whose ancestry dates to the English pirates who once
dwelt in these islands. He is truly the perfect host: friendly,
entertaining, competent, and possessing a local knowledge of the
island that greatly enhances any guest's visit. When you come to
Island House, you are one of the family, and you will have
experiences not available at the larger "gringo" operated resorts.
These might consist of a visit to local villages to hang out with
islanders, bar hopping (by boat) on a moonlit night, a spontaneous
around-island fishing trip, or simply enjoying one of the numerous
characters who routinely drop by.
You've never been to any resort like this before. If you're looking
for an intimate Caribbean island experience with a chance to
develop a feel for island culture and charm, this is the place for
you. Come join the family.
