The Secret Garden House at KM5 on the Cangrejal River is just outside of La Ceiba on the mainland of Honduras. Once operated as a restaurant/bar, the property is perched over the beautiful white water river. Located on the mountainside boarding the Rio Cangrejal below Pico Bonito National Park, this 1.9 Acre lot has 660 feet of river frontage offering direct access to multiple fresh pools, rapids and areas to swim. Across the river is thick jungle and protected land keeping this area private and in its natural state. A mile upstream are several Eco-lodges and white water rafting expeditions. This property is ideal for an Eco-Lodge, retreat, rafting business, or a personal home for anyone who wants to enjoy the peaceful sounds of the river and views of mountains.
The 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom 2400 sq ft home was constructed mostly of concrete with wood finishing. The structure itself is solid, but years of neglect have have left areas of the property in need of repair. The wood decks need to be redone and the interior of the house could use some paint touch-ups. With a little work, this property could live up to its name “Secret Garden”. With trails leading to various river access points and to tropically landscaped garden areas, the lot is set up to take advantage of the outdoor spaces. One the bottom part of the lot is another small stream with a cascade that passes through the garden and cobble stone sitting areas. From the house, the deck, and multiple areas of the property are views looking upstream at the jungle covered mountains of the National Park.
