The coordinates for the house on Google Maps are +16(degrees) 4' 23.50" , -86(degrees) 56' 56.70" . Substitute the (degrees) with the appropriate symbol (usually it's "option-shift 8" on the keyboard to get a hollow o mark to the upper right of the number), since they are translated into something weird in this ad. A link to the Google map is on the home page (scroll down until you see the aerial view of the property) at UtilaHouseForSale (dot) com as well.
I am the owner of this house, but it IS listed with a broker.

Please put "Utila House" in the subject so I will know you are not a spammer if you need additional info.
