Buena Vista estate description

Welcome to discovering 'The Best Caribbean Vacation Destination' for American and Canadian families. This tropical beachfront estate is majestically nestled in the paradisiacal bay of Omoa, between the Caribbean Sea and the awesome ever green Merendon mountains. Wake up in the morning with the sounds of nature all around the villa, tropical birds, howling monkeys and other exotic animals. Then, have a good cup of fresh Honduran coffee, while enjoying the rainforest within this Caribbean beachfront paradise located at the heart of the Cuyamel National Park. During the year 2012, the National Geographic Traveler editors included Roatan, Honduras - 'A divers' dream paradise' in the list of the world's Ten top places to visit. The estate is located just an hour's boat ride from this coral barrier reef; but away from Roatan's over crowded tourists places. Our hidden mainland spot is the ideal spot for discovering Honduras' best kept secrets !

This eco-estate has spectacular views of the wide, truly unspoiled sandy beaches stretching as far as the eyes can see, up to an unexplored mangrove ecosystem; with no houses, no people and no hotels, but very safe. Untouched pristine beaches, whose only inhabitants are coconut palms, exotic plants, fruit trees, shore birds, iguanas, geckos, turtles and crabs surround this secluded property; yet, near city conveniences (e.g. restaurants, bars, grocery store, bank, police station, hospital, pharmacy, church, park, etc, are located within driving distances.

'Our family greatly enjoyed this trip to Honduras. All the people we met were so special to make us feel safe and welcomed. This home is beautiful and comfortable, the staff is amazing and Honduras is beautiful - from its people to its landscape !! ', wrote on our guestbook, Jenny Alewyne Reynolds, Deputy Director for the Webster Parish Office of Homeland Security. Honduras' former president, Manuel Zelaya wrote: 'This is truly paradise, but with all the comforts of home'

Many activities are available on site or nearby, such as swimming, fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving in a world-class protected coral barrier reef: Sapodilla Cayes Marine Reserve (UNESCO World Heritage Site), horseback riding on the beach, historic sites, a thrill zip line and canopy adventure in the rainforest of the Honduran jungle full of fun.

We are a 'Geotourism' destination, which refers to 'Tourism that sustain or enhances the geographic character of a place - its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage, and the well being of its residents'. This alliance is between the Honduran government, the National Geographic Society, George Washington University and Counterpart International in Washington, D.C. (National Geographic News, June 2013).

Behind our estate are located the stunning Merendon green mountains, home of the 60,000-acre, Cusuco National Park; which has a tropical rainforest and a highland cloud forest, both featuring a diversity of tropical plants and over 250 exotic wildlife species (Oxford University, Operation Wallacea press news, September 07, 2006 and National Geographic Magazine). An article published on October, 2010 by the Irish Times describes the 'Hondurodendron' as a new genus of tree just discovered here by a team of researchers from Southern Illinois University, The Natural History Museum in London, Trinity College in Dublin and the world-renowned Missouri Botanical Garden; who described it as 'a once in a lifetime experience'. Who knows ? perhaps, you will be the next one to discover something unique in this tropical paradise.

This unknown, unexplored region is perhaps one of the most beautiful and fascinating treasures in the world still awaiting to be discovered !

Our fully-equipped & furnished estate has nine bedrooms, living & dining room, gourmet kitchen, ten bathrooms, large hardwood deck with a swimming pool in the middle, a private master bedroom's terrace with breathtaking views of the mountains and the Caribbean Sea.

This villa has a romantic palm-thatched palapa by the beach with a table for eight people and three hammocks, ideal for reading a book, take a nap or just relax while enjoying the Caribbean Sea fragant breezes.

Walk to your private beach and gazebo over beautiful natural stone walkways through a lushly landscaped tropical garden surrounded by coconut palm trees, fruit trees, exotic plants and the smell of colorful aromatic flowers.

Our friendly staff are the most gracious hosts you can ask for ! You will be pampered beyond your wildest dreams. First of all, you'll have the services of an excellent gourmet chef, who will cook for you three (3) delicious meals each day, thereby you'll feel like you are eating at a 5-star restaurant every day; but only at a fraction of its price ! Also, you´ll have the services of a maid, who will clean up the house, rooms, make up the beds and do the laundry. Additionally, you'll have the services of the villa´s groundskeeper and handy man. Also, you´ll have the services of a professional driver & guide, who will take you to the most fascinating places in Honduras.

'It was great to have a lovely spot to accomodate the whole family for our Christmas vacation together/family reunion, seventeen in all, ages nearly three to seventy three. The kids took part in, and loved doing everything the growns-ups did; snorkeling, the zip line, boat trip to the lagoon, a visit to the seventeenth hundred fort and the wonderful overnight trip to Copan Ruins'; wrote in our guestbook, Linda Pauling Kamb, daughter of Dr. Linus Carl Pauling, the only person ever to receive two unshared Nobel Prizes-one for Chemistry (1954) and for Peace (1962) and ranked by the British Journal New Scientist, as one of the top twenty (20) scientists of all time.

'Because Americans feel safer, enjoy white sand beaches, sunny days and cheaper living, they are increasingly visiting Honduras for a vacation' (The Washington Post - August 2012).

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: IMPORTANT: MAP IS BEST VIEWED USING HYBRID OPTION. My wife and me with our seventeen (17) year old daughter, Alejandra Marie during prom night in Honduras, the way it used to be in the old days in North America: dinner & dancing with classmates and family. Our family owns & manages a Real Estate business and a Restaurant Delivery Service (RDS) company in Honduras. We want to tell you that we enjoy hosting guests at this private family-owned Caribbean Beachfront Villa and assist our visitors in arranging daily trips & excursions to the most fascinating places in Honduras, as you can read below on the comments written by our previous guests on the Travelers Reviews section of this VRBO website. Thereby, we want to invite you, your family & friends to visit Honduras to enjoy our beautiful country and wonderful hospitality, for a memorable vacation you'll never forget !!

                      Why the Owner Chose Buena Vista:
                      We purchased this beachfront property because of the beautiful unspoiled wide sandy beaches and the remoteness of this location away from the hustle & bustle of other beaches. Then, We built the house and constantly do remodeling in order to keep it to the highest standards of quality; for example the new large kitchen, big dining room, bar, new bedrooms, the purchase of a generator, just to mention some of the most recent additions to the estate.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      Great sandy beaches, excellent beach for swimming, stunning sunsets, beautiful landscape & surroundings, a relaxing pool setting, a romantic palapa by the beach with hammocks. This property is strategically located for doing a lot more fascinating things from here than from any other place in Honduras: world class snorkeling and scuba diving, ocean swimming, fishing, horseback riding, trips to historic sites, 17th Century Omoa Fort, Copan's Mayan Ruins, mountains, rainforest, rivers, waterfalls, zip lines, Jaloa lagoon, Yojoa lake, wildlife viewing, etc.
