Welcome to discovering 'The Best Caribbean Vacation Destination' for American and Canadian families. Our estate, has been awarded with the Vrbo's "Premier Partner" badget. The Premier Partner Program recognizes owners and managers who consistently deliver outstanding traveler experiences and the Premier Partner badge shows travelers that they can expect a great stay at this property.
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.
"Thank you, for making our 50th Anniversary celebration with our 3 daughters, 3 sons-in-law, and 8 grandchildren a vacation filled with wonderful memories and really fun", wrote on our guestbook during January 2015, Richard and Carole Phillips from Auburn, California (please see their 50th anniversary 's dinner picture in the photos' section of this listing).
"When I organized this trip for my entire family, 11 of us, to celebrate a number of occasions, including my parents' 40th wedding anniversary, I never imagined that we would have such a perfect, magical experience. From start to finish, you provide a smooth, well-planned out vacation adventure", Derek Dassatti, Amherest, Massachussetts.
At this Caribbean beachfront villa, families from United States and Canada have had unforgettable anniversary's celebrations, birthdays, weddings, Thanksgivings, winters getaways, Spring breaks, Summers vacations and Christmas & New Years' family and friends reunions.
'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'. On October 15th, 2016, Science News, published the article: "Scientists Uncover New Coffee Tree Species in Honduras". This, new plant was also discovered on the mountains behind our villa. 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 !
During the first week of October 2015, the National Geographic channel aired the documentary: "The legend of the Monkey God". Explorer Steve Elkins has been searching during 22 years for the legendary White City in Mosquitia, the largest untouched rainforest in Central America — 34,000 square miles of tangled jungle, jaguars and swarming insects. Finally, during 2015, Elkins and a team of archaeologists made the astonishing discovery of the lost city in Honduras. Book our villa and go on adventures like Indiana Jones !
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.

'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).

Evenor L. Scott purchased this Estate in 2008
Why Evenor L. Scott chose Cortés
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.
What makes this Estate unique
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.

Amazing time with a great staff!
This was a trip of 9 friends from Montana and Ilinois. Some of us were very experienced travels and others not so much. Ebenor and his staff were great! They were there to meet us at the airport, drive us where ever we wanted to go, take us on adventures, and answer any questions. We hiked in the jungle, went fishing- Honduran style, spent a couple days in Copan- a must, laid around the pool, spent a day in Belize on our own private island snorkeling, and enjoyed a night on the beach with some Garifuna dancers. Eric our driver and interpreter was great- he was so much fun, but made sure to take care of us. Alan, the chef, was incredible! Do not think about doing your own cooking, let him take care of you. The trip was everything I had hoped for. Thank you!
Side note- I had read many travel warnings- so were kind of nervous about going. We had absolutely no issues. Everyone we had any dealings with were very friendly. We saw nothing that made us worry. I would definitely go back.
Just what we were hoping for!
Our large family was looking for somewhere warm, on the beach, that could fit 24 people and provide an opportunity nearby where we could give humanitarian service. We were not looking for a hotel experience where everything was perfect, we wanted an opportunity to be a part of the culture of where we were visiting and this estate was just what we were hoping for!
The staff was exceptional! One of our favorite parts of our stay was having a chef! Alan, the chef, and Victoria were amazing - 3 wonderful meals a day and so attentive to the likes and dislikes of our crew. They even helped hold the babies during meals..so amazing and sweet. :) We had a couple nice sunny days, but it rained quite a bit, which could have really put a damper on the trip, but having meals to look forward too and enjoy as a family, made it great!
Wilson, the property caretaker was awesome, always available to help with whatever was needed!
There is a main house on the property that has 3 bedrooms and a decent size living room. where we often gathered. The other sleeping accommodations were cottages on the property easily accessed from the house. This I didn't realize when I booked, but it ended up being nice for the younger couples and their babies to have their own space when needed. The property was fenced and gated and we felt safe the whole time. The final road getting there is rough, but our drivers were amazing and made every effort to make us comfortable. If you can request Luis and "Roosevelt" as your drivers, I would highly recommend it! The house keepers also did a fantastic job keeping the house clean and doing laundry.
It's important to remember that this is Honduras and by Honduran standards where you are staying is fantastic, things are not perfect, but they are great and everyone on staff is making every effort to make your stay comfortable!
The beach was definitely a highlight. It is just right out the back gate. We played on the beach and in the waves whenever we had the chance! We also built an enormous sand castle that I don't think anyone will ever top! :) Wilson brought horses out on the beach and those who did that had a great time as well.
Lastly Evenor, the owner, was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. Always available to answer any question and help with any detail. He even went the extra mile and helped us meet Mary at Heart 2 Heart village where we were able to spend some time giving Optometric service.
A trip of a lifetime! Thank you
Wonderful family beach vacation
My husband and I, along with our four young children (ages 9-4) just returned from 8 wonderful days in Honduras. Ebenor was a wonderful man, very helpful. Drove us any where we needed to be and was on time. Wilson was so kind and played with the kids - took them fishing, jumping in the waves, horseback riding, and build the world's largest bond fire for them on the beach one evening. Alejanda, the cook, was so sweet. Her meals were amazing! The house was clean and large. Pool was wonderful and refreshing! We worked with a wonderful minstry two days - Worldwide Heart to Heart Children's Village. We also went to the water park close by the house and the fort in Omoa. We just love the beach and sunshine! Can't wait to come back to Honduras!
Fantastic Experience in Honduras
We were a group of 13 looking for a wonderful beach, a great place to settle for 2 weeks and amazing food. Boy, did we hit the jackpot. We loved our stay here. We traveled with family over Christmas 2016 and had such a memorable time.
I can not say enough good things about the hospitality, the food and the service. The driver was available 24/7, the chef and her assistant prepared incredible meals, the caretaker was so incredibly accommodating and Ebenor orchestrated the entire trip with ease. Because of our group size we inevitably had travel and logistic mishaps. It was handled with such patience and understanding and in such a warm way.
We are so very thankful for more than just having a great family vacation. We extended our happiness by falling in love with two puppies. It is ONLY with the help, attention and care from Ebenor and his staff that we have been able to adopt these adorable pups! Because of their time and generosity, our newest family members have been able to receive the most excellent of vet care in preparation for their travel to the US.
I can not say enough about the care and concern the entire team had for our well being!!
Trip of a lifetime!
We traveled from Canada on a family vacation with 8 of us ranging from 5months old to 65 years. Ebenor and his staff took care of us as if we were their own family. They were patient, kind and accommodating. When you read back through the reviews the staff have been with Ebenor for years... Wilson was a lovely host with good English. He was quick to respond and made unique moments for us. One afternoon he hopped up a coconut tree, dropped down some fruit and sliced the tops off to give us fresh drinks. We felt complete safe driving all around the countryside with Mario - he always left a safe distance and was a smooth and efficient driver (I get car sick easily and never once felt nauseous in the vehicle). The van was plenty big for our group and was in good condition. I wouldn't call Jamie a cook. He is a chef and every meal was heavenly!!! We asked for Honduran food and the food was better than what you would receive any 5star resort.
The grounds were beautiful. There was lots of space to be together but also have your own privacy.
The day trips were a great mix between learning about the country and adventure. It was clear that the tour options and guides have been carefully selected.
A few notes to the fussy/nervous travelers... The place is very clean! Food prep was impeccable -- no one got ill. Even when driving at night we felt very safe!!! :)
Highly recommend giving this place a try!!
