Overview

Hopkins House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our luxurious beachfront home is the ideal place to relax and get away from it all! Built in 2010 for the sophisticated traveler, you could spend your days on one of the most beautiful deserted beaches in the world or opt for adventures that range from world-class scuba diving to exploring Mayan ruins to tubing through underground rivers to one of the many exciting activities Belize has to offer. Let our concierge do all the planning and booking for you!

This brand-new home is beautifully decorated and includes unique local art pieces to add to your enjoyment. Mahogany wood cabinets, doors, funiture and accents combined with marble floors and granite countertops add to the luxurious ambiance. Of course, a flat-screen HDTV and DVD player, cable TV, iPod docks, wireless internet, as well as reading and DVD libraries mean you can relax as much as you desire.

A fully-equipped kitchen and nearby grocery stores give you the option of cooking whenever you wish. However, you are within walking distance of several excellent restaurants that overlook the ocean. Try walking along the beach to and from your destination to fully immerse yourself in the relaxing and idyllic atmosphere of Belize. Another option would be to let our concierge hire a cook to prepare meals in your own kitchen--a great way to sample some of the mouthwatering cultural dishes of the Garifuna region.

In addition to the comforts and amenities of the home itself, the rooftop patio offers another option for sunning and enjoying the ocean breezes during the day. After dinner, why not retire to the rooftop to relax and be amazed by the millions of stars that grace the skies over the Caribbean?

Your private beach awaits the ultimate, relaxing get-away!

About The Owner

Our family has been coming to Belize for ten years. It is now our most frequent vacation destination.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Hopkins

We fell in love with the tranquil, get-away-from-it-all atmosphere, the beauty of the pristine beaches, and the friendly people of Hopkins Village. We know you will fall in love with it, too!

What makes this house unique

What we like most about our home is simply relaxing on a quiet, secluded beach with the sun warming us and the crystal waves and ocean breezes cooling our tanned bodies. There is plenty to do and great places to eat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our guestbook: We've had a wonderful week! Hopkins and this house were great spots to celebrate Kathy's birthday and a great base for experiencing this beautiful part of Belize. Kathy actually thought we were tent camping on the beach so was completely surprised and amazed when we walked into the house! We enjoyed long paddles on the ocean and river, hiking in Cockscomb and Mayflower parks, snorkeling out on the reef, biking around town, hanging out with the drummers at Lebeha, and sampling some of the excellent Hopkins cuisine.



Thanks to Maria and Chris for sharing your lovely home, and to Janette and the whole team who maintain and safeguard this beautiful property. Special thanks to the spectacular wildlife. Particular favorites were the dolphins, and reef fish, the orange iguanas along the river, toucans and the fantastic variety of other bird species we encountered...and, of course, Chunko and Cash!

Everything we hoped it would be

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We have the time of our lives in this beautiful country! I feel I could write an entire book about our experiences this past week.
Our favorite outings:
Sittee River Night Tour -- book this with Happy Go Luckie Tours. Luckie was our guide. There is not much I can put into words besides THIS IS A MUST SEE!
Snorkeling -- we booked a tour through the marina. Udell was our guide. He stayed right by our sides the entire tour pointing out every fish. We snorkeled around the entire island of Wee Wee and saw lots of sting rays. Udell also took us on the island where we saw a boa constrictor!
Bocawina National Parak -- We hiked to the top of Antelope Falls - beautiful! This is an advanced hike. At times you use ropes because the climb is so steep. There is a natural pool for swimming when you reach to top - very refreshing.
Favorite restaurants (in order):
Barracuda Bar and Grill
Purple Space Monkey (in Placencia)
Driftwood Pizza Shack
Innie's
Thong's Cafe
We had Caitlyn bake us a coconut cream pie - very savory and delicious.
Belize was the perfect honeymoon!!!

World's best hammock

World's best hammock
  • 5 of 5
Even though we were here for just a few short days, we feel refreshed and renewed from our lovely stay in this home. Our kids asked if there would be a pool here, and were a little wary when we promised the ocean was in our backyard. That did not disappoint them or us.
The neighbors, Hal and Connie from Calgary, were so kind to share their pier with us. They even had crab traps! We caught a little crab using a hot dog as bait, boiled it, and each of us had a tiny bite of sweet meat. So fun!
We love to cook, so we made most of our meals, but we enjoyed some great dinners at Love on the Rocks and Chef Rob. Our last dinner here was the mackerel that my husband caught on our fish and snorkel tour with Luckie. It was light, flaky, and delicious! We saw lots of beautiful fish snorkeling and our kids (ages 4 & 6) were so brave to swim out in the open ocean with us (on our snorkeling trip). We were a little sad to find that there is not good snorkeling off the beach in the backyard.
We tried to visit Caitlyn's famous bakery for a coconut cream pie, but it was closed due to the annual Hopkins Kite Festival. That was fun to see! Everyone brought out kites of all kinds and sizes, most of them homemade.
Overall, we felt worlds away from the cold of winter back home and the stress of life. We found this to be a place for some wonderful family memories!

We think the hammock on the beach is one of the best places on earth!

Relaxing Oasis

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four spent 5 wonderful days at Belize in Your Dreams and we couldn't have been more pleased. Hopkins is a small village but we found many beachside restaurants to enjoy, The Curve Bar being a favorite! The villa is equipped with everything you will need for a relaxing time at the beach. Waking up to that view each morning and spending the entire day on the beach was heaven. For you shade seekers, there's plenty of that too. We would certainly choose Belize in Your Dreams again while in Hopkins Village.

Owner's Response: The 20-yr-old daughter left this note in our guestbook:
What a memorable vacation! Thanks for the opportunity to stay in your beautiful home and open up Hopkins to my family and me. As a student in Chicago, I was looking for a break from the hustle an bustle. Hopkins was perfect! All of the food was fantastic (and I'm picky!) The Curve Bar and Brother's Pizza were our favorite spots. Barracuda and Chef Rob were also fantastic. Make sure to stop by the Curve to see Bird and Ben. Great drinks! Snorkeling here was my best experience snorkeling ever. The reef is really something to see! Caitlyn's pies down at her bakery near the school were quite the treat.The highlight of the trip had to be the night boat tours with Luckie to see the bioluminescence in the lagoon. The moon jellies were captivating! Everyone in Hopkins was so welcoming and there were many, many photo ops. Thanks so much for everything!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 7 nights at this wonderful home in Hopkins and had a great stay. The house is very clean and comfortable. Well maintained and when we had a small problem with one of the AC units it was fixed the next day. There are lots of restaurants a short walk away and the dive shop we used (Hopkins Underwater Adventures, also excellent) was a 7 minute walk down the beach. We spent 4 days on Ambergris Caye before coming over to Hopkins and it was much more laid back in Hopkins. No one bothering you on the beach, just settle into the chairs on the beach and soak up the sun uninterrupted! We would definitely go back!

Owner's Response: The family left this note in our guest book:
Thank you for the use of your lovely home. We thought we'd share some of our favorite activities.

1. Garifuna drumming on Tuesday evenings at Driftwood Pizza Shack.
2. Scuba diving with Hopkins Underwater Adventures.
3. Cave tubing at Caves Branch. We chose the full day tour with four caves including Crystal Cave.
4. Hike to Antelope Falls followed by ziplining in Bocawina National Park.
5.Belize Zoo. We arrived late in the day and were lucky to be guided around by a zookeeper who was feeding the "cats."
6. Caitlyn's Bakery-by the basketball court. we enjoyed Caitlyn's baking, smoothies, and conversation.

We enjoyed breakfast at Frog's Point and pizza at Driftwood is excellent. Brother's Pizza delivery came in handy and the food was good. Otherwise, Chef Rob, Love on the Rocks, Hamanasi, and Rhum Shack all had acceptable but not "stunning" food.

Beach Front Home

  • 5 of 5
Our group of two couples stayed at Maria and Chris' home for 9 days, Feb 7th - 16th, 2014. It is as advertised! Beautiful and luxurious! Marble floors, granite counter tops, fine woodwork and great local artwork, all combine for an amazing home. Very well equipped kitchen. Complimentary bikes and kayak. The home is right on a well landscaped beach with lots of privacy. Hopkins location is great for day trips to rainforest and a zipline. Boat trips to the reef are available daily. Along with some very nice restaurants and very friendly locals, this is a place we plan to return to. Tim & Trish
