BEACHFRONT RENTAL BLUE MOON CABANA, HOPKINS VILLAGE, BELIZE

Hopkins House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Blue Moon Cabana is a beachfront house for rent facing the Caribbean Sea in the lovely Garifuna fishing village of Hopkins, Belize.

The cabana is centrally located in one of the most popular areas of Hopkins Village and is within walking distance of restaurants/bars, shops, and other popular establishments. It has a full-service kitchen (cook not included!), 2 bedrooms with full-size beds, living room with full-size futon, and a tiled bathroom.

Enjoy your own private cabana right on the beach! You will no doubt be spending a lot of time in one of the hammocks out on the 8-foot wide covered veranda that spans the entire front and one side of the cabana. Surrounded by windows, you will enjoy stunning views and breezes flowing directly off the sea. Tastefully decorated and furnished with locally-crafted mahogany furniture, Blue Moon Cabana has everything you need to be comfortable and relaxed, while maintaining a Caribbean rustic-charm.

The cabana was designed with an open floor plan that allows guests to enjoy the fabulous breezes that flow throughout the house. The two bedrooms are separated by an enclosed bathroom, and there are bamboo curtain panels for each bedroom that can be closed for additional privacy.

*NEW* Baby Blue Cabana is a new one-bedroom cabana, including a full-size bed, bathroom, kitchenette, and front veranda. Situated behind Blue Moon Cabana, Baby Blue Cabana enjoys sea views, has a separate walkway out to the public beach, and is steps from the sea. Baby Blue Cabana has an open floor plan and is perfect for a single guest or couple. Staying in the larger beachfront Blue Moon Cabana and need extra space for your party? Baby Blue Cabana is a great option to add extra space and to keep your additional guests close by. Baby Blue Cabana will be available beginning October 1, 2014. Please visit our website for more information about Baby Blue Cabana, including amenities, photos, rates, and availability.

Hopkins is a friendly village and because Blue Moon Cabana is located in the center of Hopkins, you can walk to everything. You can also rent a bicycle, motorbike, or golf cart to get around. Blue Moon Cabana is situated on a private beachfront lot and because we're in a village we do have neighbors. Hopkins is a vibrant traditional village that comes alive early in the morning with the singing of tropical birds and the occasional rooster letting you know it's morning! If you're looking to experience the culture of a local village in Belize, Blue Moon Cabana is the perfect spot. If you require a more luxurious and fancier experience, you may be happier with a resort-type accommodation in the north and south outskirts of the village. There is a variety of accommodation options in and around Hopkins to meet the diverse needs of vacationers.

When you stay at Blue Moon Cabana, we can arrange a variety of tours and adventures for you. Mirko, our Property Manager, is a licensed tour operator through the Belize Tourism Board and the Owner/Operator of Flying Boat Adventures, our official partner for transportation/transfers, tours, and adventures, and transportation and flights within Belize.

About Mirko Bechstedt

Blue Moon Cabana was built in July/August 2011 after several years of planning and hard work to make it happen. We put our hearts and souls into the cabana and wanted to build a home that fit with the culture of Hopkins. It was important to us to create a space that was comfortable and included all the things we would want ourselves in a rental cabana in Belize. We are not into the resort experience and value the local culture and people of Hopkins. We leave the resort-type experience to the places south of the village. Mirko, who lives nearby Blue Moon Cabana is available to assist guests with all their needs during their stay, including transfer to and from the airport (and other locations) and arranging tours and other adventures for guests.

Mirko Bechstedt purchased this house in 2011

Why Mirko Bechstedt chose Hopkins

Hopkins is a laid back village with beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea and Maya Mountains on the other side. We chose a beachfront lot in the village because we wanted to be central to everything, including the beautiful people in the village. Hopkins has a rich cultural life --and traditional Garifuna life is evident throughout the village.

What makes this house unique

Blue Moon Cabana is centrally located in the village which allows us to soak up the rich cultural life of the village. Local restaurants and other popular establishments are within walking distance from the cabana, but guests can also rent bicycles to get around, too.

The cabana itself is high off the ground and steps from the sea --and since the cabana has lots of windows, there are usually fabulous breezes flowing throughout the house. The views from the veranda are stunning!

Hopkins is a great base to enjoy day and half-day trips to the jungle, mountains, and cayes. In addition to relaxing on the veranda or on the beach in front of the cabana, there are so many adventures to enjoy in and around the village.

Couldn't have asked for more

My husband and I spent 10 days on our honeymoon at the Blue Moon Cabana and couldn't have asked for more! Beachfront, yet right in town within walking distance to everything was very convenient. The Blue Moon Cabana had everything we needed for our stay including a fully stocked kitchen, Scrabble for that one rainy day, and a cooler to take with you on excursions. It was great to have the local cell phone provided and having Mirko available for anything we needed, especially for arranging tours. We ran into others that had some difficulty setting up tours but it was only a quick phone call for us. He and Annette were a great help for introducing us to the town and giving advice for travelers, and recommendations on where to eat. We had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return!

My husband and I have stayed at the Blue Moon on three different occasions and look forward to our fourth. Hopkins Belize is a wonderfully relaxing village and the Blue Moon is perfectly located right on the beach and in the heart of the village. The Property Manager Mirko and Annett look after our every need. If you are looking for a stress-free holiday this is your place and you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I had the pleasure to spend two months in Hopkins at the Blue Moon Cabana. We were looking for a stress free holiday with lots of sun and sand. We certainly got this with Mother Nature providing the sun and sand and Merko and Annette ensuring all our needs were taken care of at the Blue Moon Cabana. A great place to stay. The accommodation, weather, beach and people were everything we hoped for.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5
Mirko the property manager from our first contact (initial email) until the day we left was there for us from extra linen to arranging wonderful excursions. He recommended restaurants and gave us money saving tips for shopping, renting a car and anything else that may have popped up. He arranged our flight from Belize City to Dangriga ( a 20 minute flight) and from there a driver to bring us to Hopkins. By the way we fell in love with Hopkins, a wonderful friendly town that grows on you daily. Our morning walk on the beach was a joy, mostly secluded with miles of beautiful vistas.
The Blue Moon Cabana is wonderfully located within walking distance from restaurants, grocery stores and most of the retail stores in Hopkins. The BMC is fully equipped with every thing you may need if you have a special request Mirko will get it done. We'll be back!!!
