VILLA WITH GARDEN AND SEA VIEW AND PRIVATE BEACH

Trujillo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

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.

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

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 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).

This villa was a real treat and we found the listing description accurate. Steed was very responsive to any of our questions and provided extensive information about the area. Our most favorite thing was sitting on the porch and enjoying the view and garden. We loved the Campamento resort and restaurant near Santa Fe and actually spent the day there on the beach as it is the most beautiful beach in the area. The beach access was difficult as we were there during the rainy season and the roads were terrible but we did make it in a low clearance rental car ( Toyota Corolla). A high clearance vehicle would have been best for our entire trip in Honduras but we were trying to save
money. The boat trip to the lagoon was also a highlight but we wish we had gone earlier in the day to see more birds. The on site manager of this property is very helpful and able to set up anything you might need. We felt very well cared for

LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the house of Scott for the first two weeks of April 2011. I had fallen in love with the home from the pictures and it never disappointed. I had neveer been to Central America and wasn't sure what to expect when we got there. When everyone you talk to asks if you felt safe down there (when you get home) you have to believe htat there must be something to it.
Well, I'm home, and I'm safe, and I never felt threatened, and I'm pretty sure nobody I was with felt any of that stuff either.
Steed (yes, that's his first name) had arranged for a friend of his, John, to meet us at the airport in La Cieba. For $100 John made the three hour trip from Trujillo, picked us up, talked our ears off, and provided details about the city and the country, that you couldn't have gotten anywhere else.
Advise: learn Spanish. Nobody speaks English except ex-pats and most of them never come into the city. If you don't speak the language, make sure you have a dictionario. The people are wonderful and will help you with the lanquage as much as they can.
Make sure you have a flashlight. Electricity is a priviledge not a right. Power outages are very common, at least 10 in 14 nights. Steed has a generator but its very romantic just having candles so we only used it one night when we needed it for cooking (get a gas stove!) If you are renting a car, and you're going to need to, rent a 4x4 and see if they have a rental office in Trujillo. If there are none, make sure they have a way of servicing the vehicle when, not if, it breaks down. The roads are horrible. Lots of 'batches' (potholes) that like to eat small rental cars!
You must go to the market and buy fresh produce, but more important, you need to learn how to make a fruit drink called tamarindo. Google the medicinal value of the drink. I am living proof of its power to lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
Currency in Honduras is the lempiras. They don't really take anything else but there is am ATM downtown if you run out of money. Don't assume you can use USD. Our friends tried that and found out the hard way that they deal almost exclusively in their own currency. Steed, your house, your friends, and your employees are all beautiful. I would recomment this property for rental any day.
Special thanks to John and Allan for sharing their world with us.

Owner's Response: I am glad that you had a good time! John is a great guide. He has orientation guided trips of the area and also some that specialize in birds as well as boat trips for snorkeling or fishing. A great resource for guests. Can't do much about the roads or electricity. Luckily most power outages are very short. There is another stove that is gas in the terrace apartment, and if the power goes out, that is available for cooking. They have announced the Cruise Ship Dock for Trujillo, and it is under construction. Surely, as tourism increases, the nation will concentrate more resources on Trujillo. In the meantime, enjoy the rustic nature of Trujillo while you can.

GUEST RETURNS FROM TRUJILLO

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here in late August with my family. I cannot believe I paid this amount for so much. The owner says he will hold my price for me if I return. I will go back. There is the best cook in the world there, Urbana. I think she worked for hotels in the past. Anyway, she will cook anything you want! We went and bought fresh fish and she used all the spices. Each morning we had fruit from the trees on the grounds. There is a gentleman, Noel, that will drive you anywhere. Trujillo, while a rural town, has all you need and the people are quite friendly to Americans or folks from other counties. It is very stable. There is a beach club where foreigners hang out run by an American. Great food for a low price. Just sip a margarita and enjoy. Next to that is a petting zoo and a pool. There is a pharmacy in town that has everything. The owner has beach property he let us use that is quiet and charming. If you want to relax looking over a tropical bay and not spend alot for full service, this place is a no-brainer. Gorgeous. Franklin Henson, Atlanta Georgia
