Property description

Villa Vista Dorada is a unique 3 bedroom 3 bath house high above Trujillo, Honduras.

After entering through a fortress-like door you find yourself in a cobblestone central courtyard with fountain. The living and dining rooms open to a 50 foot covered terrace with colonial-style columns with a spectacular view of the coast and the Caribbean Sea below. The house is furnished with antiques from all over Central America. Below the house is a 4 acre garden and orchard. A small river flows through boulders and waterfalls on the border of the property. The expert cook that comes with your rental will prepare whatever local seafood you bring her. The rental also includes full use of a 20 acre beach property with 500 feet of private beach and a straw covered champa to hang your hammocks and sit in the shade.

The beach also has its own gardener/guard, and there is a shower for your use. Spend the day at the beach, walk a mile down the beach to lunch at Campamento, where they prepare your food in a wood burning clay oven, then return to the main house for a shower, cocktails, and the amazing sunset view. Get up early and enjoy the privileged view from the terrace for bird-watching.

Rarely are you able to have such a comfortable perch to see birds flying below you in the river valley, with the sun shining from behind you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Atlanta attorney Steed Scott is a frequent traveler in Central and South America, and his expertise aided him in creating and furnishing Villa Vista Dorada.

Why the Owner Chose Colon, Honduras:
I spent several years traveling through the Yucatan, Guatemala, and Honduras looking for a place to construct a vacation home. One day I arrived at the bridge over the lagoon outside of Trujillo just at sunset. With the sunset reflecting on the huge and placid bay, the volcano-like mountain looming behind, and with the lights of Trujillo twinkling between the mountain and the sea, I knew that I had found the place I wanted to build.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The terrace overlooking the sea beckons all day long. It's tough to decide whether to lay in the hammock, recline on the lounge chair, or just sit and read. The cook is excellent. Just buy some lobsters or shrimp and tell her to make lobsters with butter, garlic and curry tonight, and use the leftovers for lobster omelets in the morning. There is a diminutive Payan Indian woman who will come to the house and give you an hour long massage for $10 a person (We have a professional massage table).
