We'd love to welcome you to Casa Hokol Kin (which means 'beautiful sunrise', in Mayan). Caribbean vacationing is simple, relaxed and easy. You're on island time here -- and we'll make your stay comfortable. You'll go at your own pace. You can 'do it all' or laze around and do nothing at all. It's your choice.
Swim in the warm salt water pool just outside our door...enjoy our little beach on the Caribbean Sea, just a few more steps away. Fish off our private pier, or we can help you arrange a guide so you can fish the barrier reef (some of the best bone fishing you'll find anywhere)! You can enjoy the private palapa (grass thatched 'gazebo' at the end of the pier), shared only with other Los Encantos community guests.
Are you the adventuresome type? Get your Indiana Jones on and discover nearby Lamanai Mayan ruins. (We do it right in Belize. You won't be dodging tour buses to get a glimpse of the ruins.) We can set you up with the area's best tour guide for an adventure of a lifetime. To top off your tour you'll be accompanied by Howler monkeys and Jabiru storks. Please don't feed the alligators! But do enjoy the live rainforest as you ride up the river in the tour guide's boat under the canopy of air plants, orchids and jungle vines.
Are you a SCUBA diver or snorkeler? There are beautiful barrier reefs to discover (the second largest coral reef in the world is 10 minutes from your door at Casa Hokol Kin), fish to see you've only ever dreamed of, swimming with the sharks and the rays. We can help set you up with a tour certain to take you on a dive you'll always remember.
How about fishing? Fishing in Belize is some of the best you'll find in the world. Snapper, small grouper, barracuda... How about fly fishing for snook, tarpon or bonefish? There's nothing like it -- go fishing during the day with Pancho the fishing guide, and he'll fillet your catch, ready for dinner that night.
If you come to enjoy the local, Caribbean flavor, dine in luxury at a local restaurant (there are so many to choose from!) or eat in at home while you bask in the balmy, Caribbean evening breezes.
Explore Ambergris Caye and get around for day trips or a night on the town by taxi, water taxi, or golf cart. Our house is about 4.5 miles from San Pedro Town (that's the town on Ambergris Caye) where you'll find some great shopping and souvenirs made by local Belizean artists.
Casa Hokol Kin has three bedrooms and three baths, and can sleep 8 adults.
Enjoy all of the comforts of home (but leave your worries). You'll have a large television with cable TV and DVD player, as well as wireless internet access. The kitchen boasts a refrigerator with freezer, stove, dishwasher, coffee maker and microwave. Each room has its own air conditioner. Our lovely Belizean caretaker, Sergio, and housekeeper, Rachel, will take care of your requests and help you feel right at home.
Ours is the largest of the four Los Encantos houses (our small, private community), and has three bedrooms and three baths.
Some of the best times have been when guests have had a wedding and filled all of the houses. A Belize wedding is not to be missed! And what a great place for a family reunion! Be sure to contact us if you'd like to arrange for more than one house. We're happy to accommodate you!
No matter if you're two for a honeymoon or romantic week, two or three couples getting away from it all, on a family vacation, a group on a bone fishing or SCUBA excursion, you're sure to enjoy Casa Hokol Kin!

I'm Loran Nordgren, your host. I'm originally from Chicago, but now I split my time between my place in southwest Wisconsin (New Sundborn Ranch) and Belize.

I fell in love with Casa Hokol Kin when I first saw it. I love not just the privacy, but that it's so easy to get to some of the greatest fishing in the world. You'll love to come here for SCUBA or snorkeling too. If you do, bring your own snorkel and mask -- I have the fins for you.
Los Encantos is 4 houses in a private courtyard with salt water pool, and our own beach. Our caretaker, Sergio, and housekeeper, Rachel, will help make your stay comfortable.
