and his son, Eli, own The Sandy Bay Beach House but the home
is enjoyed by the whole family. The immediate family consists
of Craig and his wife Kareen, their daughter, Elody and their
son, Eli. And we can't forget Ollie & Rubes, Eli's crazy
little munchkins. We‚ve all lived in Colorado, USA since
93' and Kansas before that; Maine before that.
Island life has always been a part of our family as we also
have an estate on a fairly similar small island in the Bahamas,
Cat Island, which has been in our family for several decades.
We have always preferred having a vacation home on a less
touristy, but beautiful island with lot‚s to do. Unfortunately,
this kind of paradise is hard to find. We felt that Utila
offered that perfect combination of convenience, beauty, and
lot‚s to do without the high profile tourism found in
most of the Caribbean.
Craig and Kareen are now retired and enjoy traveling and being
great grandparents. Craig still dabbles in investments with
others and his son. Kareen is an artist and, being half French
& half Chinese, she is an excellent gourmet chef as well.
Eli is a washed up tennis player, real estate investor and
realtor often including his father in his incredible deals.
He is the one that you will most likely communicate with regarding
Sandy Bay. Oliver Rocket Muhl does not yet have an official
job except for eating, sleeping, and testing the rules on
a consistent basis. Ruby is the littlest Muhl but just 3 1/2
months behind Oliver, adopted from China. Oliver & Ruby's
favorite auntie, Elody, has a degree in graphic design &
a cute husband we call Miles.
Sandy Bay Beach House is cared for by Angelito Olivia, our
hardworking, trustworthy and English speaking caretaker of
the home for over 6 years. Angelito gives us peace of mind
when were away for long periods of time. Angel, as most of
our guests call him, knows how to fix pretty much everything
in the house or he knows someone that does. He also travels
with us to the mainland when we need someone to translate
for us and often eats dinner with us when he's working late.
Angelito is who you might first meet when arriving to Utila.
Angelito's wife, Stella and his son Angelito also live on
We are very clean, do not smoke, love to travel the world,
enjoy the outdoors, are avid tennis players and love to have
fun. Diving, fishing, skiing, biking, reading, dining, golf,
enjoying a good movie or book and playing with our pets; as

We enjoy traveling together as a family and often do.
We are very glad that you have taken the time to share our
home and hope that you get a chance to enjoy a closer look;
were confident you'll have as much fun as we do!
