We built our dream house property in 2008 and feel it is the best place to live in Belize!

Katia Paradis purchased this house in 2008

The property sets on the top of a breezy hill with a majestic view we never get tired of looking at. It offers the privacy and intimacy of a resort while not being too isolated and close to the groceries store and bustling village life. In fact, we were not the first one to find this location as a premium spot, while building the foundations of the house, we found 2 ancient Mayan foundations laying one on top of another. We believe it is a great property for those who go for the car rental option, preferably a SUV, either in San Ignacio or Belize City and explore the area at their own rhythm without being bound to any schedule. The road access to the house is a dirt path, often bumpy, that gets muddy on rainy season.

On days where everyone complains about heat and humidity and get to our place, they are always surprised by how much more comfortable and cooler it is up there.

A stunning hilltop

After a long day of travel we were stunned by the house. Spacious, well-kept, with beautiful grounds and a fantastic view. You need a serious vehicle to get to the top of that hill, but once there we were met by a welcoming housekeeper and local fruit. The owner was a pleasure to deal with--very prompt and informative.

I took a horseback ride through Andy's Horseback Adventures that was one of the most enjoyable things I've ever done.

Bring bug spray.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Sarah and the tip for the horse back riding tour! That is helpful for other guests to know which tour operator is great.

An AMAZING home with an incredible view.

WOW! This home is absolutely incredible. From the Teak wood counters to the quick drying concrete floors. The view is spectacular and the pool is just an extra bonus. We saw many different types of birds including parrots. Katia, the owner, was incredibly helpful during our planning and even had someone meet us in town to insure we would find the home(we arrived at night). It is an interesting road up to the house. I will never forget our trip to Belize or the Hill View house. I got engaged there on Christmas Eve on my trip and it was absolutely perfect. I highly recommend staying here!

Owner's Response: Isn't it nice to see those green parrots fly all together? For months I had seen a pair of toucans from the pool deck without even the need of binoculars and then they disappeared. I hope they comeback, I will have to get into birding to know how to attract more beautiful species around the house... Many thanks for taking the time to review our property.

Our family of 6 loved this house. We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the evenings and mornings. Everything was as we expected. Great location for visiting sites in western Belize. We would highly recommend this property.

Belizean Paradise Getaway

  • Submitted: Dec 8, 2013

Just returned from a wonderful stay at this hill top paradise Nov 16-20, 2013. This is a wonderful vacation home & a great central location for any inland excursions such as caving, Mayan ruins & water activities. My husband & I are pretty adventurous, so arriving to Belize after a week of torrential rains, was not a damper on our vacation. Yes, the roads were crazy muddy & a little difficult to navigate, but what would you expect after the rains that came a week before we arrived?!? Katia recommended we rent a 4x4 so we did exactly that & we were fine. The house was a little tricky to find, but that was all part of the adventure! The home including the pool, the view & the accommodations are all beautiful. You feel a little guilty because all the natives are living in such poor conditions in town. Consuelo was amazing & so sweet! She even surprised us & took the time to wash by hand all of our mud stained clothing from caving, which I thought for sure I'd have to throw away. She made us great food & was very gracious! It was nice to enjoy the pool & the wonderful rain shower in the bathroom. San Ignacio is a quaint, fun town to explore & we did our excursions through Cayo Adventure tours who were fantastic! Ask for Gonzo because he's very passionate about his guiding! Belize is a beautiful country & so grateful we were able to experience it's beauty! Katia is most wonderful to deal with & was truly a gem in responding to email inquiries & questions I had along the way. The only thing that we had problems with we're the barking dogs at night that made it somewhat difficult to sleep & the bed on the right side of the bathroom was a little hard. Other than that we would definitely recommend this vacation home to anyone without hesitation! Thank you Katia!

Owner's Response: It makes me feel truly happy when I know that my guests enjoyed their stay. I will try to address the dog issue ASAP as it is very annoying, the place is usually so calm and dogs barking is not my definition of a good night of sleep. (The good thing is that we don't have neighbors with roosters! I always say that the only downsize of this village property with a million dollar view compare to the most expensive resorts around is not being surrounded by 100 acres of forest which keep all the potential noise under control...) We have a new pack of dogs so that could explain the barking but I will ask our gardener to make sure he shuts them off if they go random in the middle of the night. Full moon was o November 17 and it is truth that dogs transform themselves into wolves in this country but thanks for letting me know, I will make sure my staff is aware of it.

Rumble in the jungle

A beautiful home. Due to slick unpaved roads and lack of street signage, very difficult to get to. Four wheel drive vehicle advised especially when roads are wet. Greeted by a tarantula at front door. Shared our bedroom with a scorpion; temporarily-it lost. Only one jet worked on the pool, water was murky so we chose not to utilize it for health concerns. Ants infected spare bedroom so one guest slept on couch. We spoke no Spanish, so communication with house keeper difficult. Owner attempted to resolve issues, but we were only in town three days, so gone before they were addressed.

Owner's Response: Dear Perdita & Ollie,

I am so sorry my house became the Noah's Ark of all the undesirable wildlife we wish to never encounter in a tropical country. I have to admit you had a difficult stay: getting to Belize on the day half of the country is about to be cut off due to the worst torrential rains ever is not an easy start for any traveler. I guess all the wildlife went for the only dry spot miles around: the hill top where our house is located. The off-the beaten track location doesn't help, I agree with you, and as you suggested, I will start recommending a 4X4 as a "must" for all the rainy season.

Consuelo our housekeeper is making her best to learn English, she is originally from Guatemala and it is true that many travelers think they will only have to deal with English spoken people in Belize, in fact, the West part of the country is mostly Spanish. I will tell her to put our future guests faster in communication with people at the office who are totally fluent in English, when required. And yes, it is very unfortunate the pool turned green due to the heavy storm and the pump started having problems so please accept again my sincere apologies and a reimbursement for that unforeseen situation. I hope you enjoyed Belize despite all of this and that you found the right spot in the country so your dream of retiring in the Tropics comes true.
