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 curtain panels for each bedroom that can be closed for additional privacy.

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 and the Owner/Operator of Flying Boat Adventures, our official partner for transportation/transfers, tours, and adventures.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

Just like the Pictures!!

We stayed a month in Hopkins village. Unlike some rental pictures the Blue Moon Cabana looked just like its pictures. Very comfortable and centrally located. Takes about 15 minutes to walk end/end of the village. Groceries were very reasonable. The locals were all very friendly, and you are safe any time of day or night. Water is not drinkable, was only $5 for 5gal. Surprising there is enough bars to keep any late night partiers busy. Down side, a new Karaoke bar opened near the cabana, so from Thursday to Sunday night you will here pretty bad singing from 1 to 3am, (earplugs). Otherwise fairly quiet. Biggest tip I can give is have lots of baby oil, as the no-see ums really bite, but coating with baby oil before going out will keep them sliding off !!! Deet is a must for mosquitos in the evening. Would recommend blue moon cabana for 2 adult and 2 kids, but wouldn't for 2 couples unless everyone goes to bed and wakes up together. Really just 1 big room with bamboo curtains so no sound is muffled with early risers. Lots of tour operators around so check out a few before booking. Belize is a beautiful area, lots to see, especially have to visit Miss Emma's Orchard and Farm.

Owner's Response: Hi Kim --we're so glad you enjoyed the cabana and exploring Hopkins and surrounding areas! It's great that you got to stay an entire month, and we appreciate you choosing Blue Moon Cabana as your home for your month in Hopkins. And, thanks for taking time to write a review! Just a point of clarification for future renters: the Karaoke bar that you mentioned has actually been around for a while and is located two roads back behind the cabana (in the back part of the village --not on the sea where Blue Moon Cabana is located) and can sometimes be heard throughout the central part of the village when they get going with their fun! Previous guests have told us that it did not disturb their sleep, especially since the cabana is on the sea, but if one is a light sleeper, as you say, earplugs will definitely do the trick. We just wanted to clarify this point to make sure future renters understand that the Karaoke is not next to the cabana and has not been an issue for previous renters. Also, we've had many parties with two adult couples, and it has worked out great for them, so we always recommend that potential renters look at the website and photos (which, as you say, are a very accurate depiction of the cabana) and read the descriptions to decide for themselves whether it will be a good arrangement for them. We are working hard to make the cabana a special place for guests during their stay in Hopkins, and we appreciate you taking the time to write a thoughtful review! Thanks again for choosing Blue Moon Cabana and best wishes to you!
