We bought this property because of its beautiful beach, great floor plan, great views, its flexibility for small to large groups and its proximity to wonderful excursions.
This property is well suited for multiple couples, families, or corporate outings. The living areas are large and wide open to facilitate entertaining and bonding. Almost all rooms have beautiful views to the ocean.
This is a great property, we rented the upstairs unit for our family of four which was more than adequate. Huge living area and bedrooms with plenty of space for everyone and very decent Wi-fi connection. Hopkins is a wonderful, tiny remote town, the people and restaurants are good. Marto, the caretaker of the property, was kind and helpful and made himself available for any questions or needs we had. The beach is beautiful, we enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks. We have recommended the property to multiple friends!
We loved our stay in Belize! We woke up every morning with a pristine groomed beach just steps from our bedroom door! Definitely a beach lovers paradise, but plenty for the outdoor enthusiast to enjoy as well! We zip lined through the rainforest canopy, rappelled down waterfalls, and took a fishing and snorkeling excursion to the beautiful cays. The food throughout the entire trip was absolutely delicious! It was a perfect family vacation. The house was beautiful and is in an amazing location, and was stocked with everything we could have needed!
We recently returned from a wonderful vacation in Belize. We spent one week in Hopkins in this lovely home owned by Randy and Elizabeth. The house is just a few km south of Hopkins, a small quiet village on the coast. It was "perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all" just like the description said! With the ocean just a few metres from the front door- You could be in and out of the water all day long. The water is bath-tub warm and is very shallow for a long ways out.
Although we didn't have any children with us, we kept thinking how ideal this home would be for a family with small children.
The house is large, clean and well decorated. We were three couples and found we had more than enough space for all. We all like to cook and the spacious kitchen allowed us plenty of room to all get in there and do our thing. The place was well equipped with necessary dishes, linens etc. The yard was well maintained by Marto and his son.
Although we spent lots of time on the beach, the central location allowed us to get out and see other sights. In less than an hour you can do some great hiking, zip lining, water-fall rappelling, and birding. There are plenty of opportunities to go out snorkeling, diving, and fishing as well. Randy and Elizabeth have provided bikes and kayaks which made the week extra special. We used the bikes daily to ride into Hopkins to get groceries or just to watch life happening. People were always really friendly and helpful.
My absolute favorite part of the week was going out with Marto, the property manager, on an evening adventure. We took the kayaks out on the near-by Sittee River one night and paddled until we came to a lagoon where we were greeted by the most amazing display of bio-luminescent plankton in the water. When ever something moved- paddle-kayak-fish etc. the water lit right up!! It was like watching fireworks in the water. We also got a chance to see some baby crocodiles along the shores.
Randy and Elizabeth were very responsive to our emails and returned our damage deposit promptly. They don't live in Belize but were visiting when we arrived. They introduced us to some of the very friendly neighbours which was an added bonus.
All in all it was a great week. I would highly recommend this property to anyone- especially families.
