Guestbook comments from the owner
Good Morning Doug,

We arrived back home late last night and I just wanted to let you know that, despite the weather (we were hoping it would be the hot, sunshine that we lack in the winter months) we had an awesome time. The home was all we needed and Anthony, Gil and Dana were very helpful. We found that the people of Belize that we encountered were all so friendly. I want to thank you for all your help with our trip, especially the directions and advise on restaurants. That was all extremely helpful and made our holiday that much easier. We realized that it wasn't the most brilliant idea to travel from the Belize airport in the dark and rain, but it did add to the adventure of it all and there we realized how helpful and friendly the people of Belize were, we stopped a lot and asked directions to make sure we were still on the right track :)



The snorkelling was awesome (except I got a 'bit' of motion sickness) Anthony set us up with Bert and Marley and they were wonderful - especially with dealing with a sticky on the boat.

:( . We took a trip out to Antelope Falls and hiked that, also awesome! We drove out to Caves Branch jungle lodge, took in a little bit to eat and drink there, saw the cheese factory and bought some of their cheese, walked through the botanical garden. So, so beautiful.

We did cook some of our own meals, and had Dana make us a meal. We ate at the Hamanasi for breakfast a couple of times, supper at the Barracuda, Chef Robs, Love on the Rocks, Driftwood pizza, Hopkins Bay Resort and the Curve Bar at the Marina. All of them were very good. Too bad the weather did not lend itself to better water time, otherwise we would have loved to spend more time in the ocean. Walks on the beach are always great too.

And of course, can't forget Caitlin's Bakery :)

Thanks again, and I'm sure we will be back some time – Joyce

Our families are from the North Texas area and we fell in love with Hopkins when working in the area with a local missions group! Whether it is fishing, hiking, kayaking or just relaxing on the beach. Since first coming to Hopkins in 2011, we have returned again and again to enjoy the laid back vibe of the town. We feel that Hopkins is a great location for your Belizean adventures to begin.

Hopkins was a natural choice for us. The area is beautiful, the people are fantastic and the local restaurants are just down the beach. If you are looking for a relaxed, laid back town, Hopkins fits the bill perfectly.

Biama House is the one of the only duplex homes in Hopkins. The house is perfect for large groups that want to rent both side, but also private enough for separate families to enjoy their time on the Caribbean Sea without worrying about feeling crowded. Biama House's units are separated by a thick concrete wall ensuring your total privacy. Each unit has it's own private balcony overlooking the sea off the master bedroom, and a tile porch at beach level.

PERFECT LOCATION TO ESCAPE TO!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this unit for 10 days with another couple and it was exactly as pictured and advertised.

The unit was very clean, the kitchen was well stocked with all the essentials including a few spices and cooking oil. However if you need a few things the stores in Hopkins had all the essentials. We choose to do our big shopping in Belize City when we arrived, which worked well for us as the selection is Hopkins is small for things like meat and dairy.

The beds were comfortable, the water pressure was great. The internet was a little unreliable when we got there but our friend that was with us is an internet guy and with Doug's help they were able to tweak the settings. Future guests will have no concerns using multiple devices on the one connection. Not that we are there to watch TV but the channel selection was really good for the quiet evenings in.

We loved being right on the beach, remember bug spray as the sand flies were really active when we were there. We were there mostly to dive with Hopkins Underwater Adventure, the dock they use is a three minute walk up the beach. It was wonderful to be so close. Although we did rent a car and were able to explore lots of Belize, We spent time at Blue Hole national Park, Xunantunich, Dangriga and kayaking on the Sittee River on off dive days. We found driving in Belize very easy and safe.

Thank you Doug for helping make this stay a great success. Hopefully we will return to Belize soon and would definitely recommend Biama house to anyone looking for a quiet place to relax.

EXCELLENT ACCOMMODATION FOR A FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family (3 university aged daughters) loved our stay in Hopkins. The house is well located to be private yet easy to walk into Hopkins. It is close to great restaurants as well. The house is spacious and very well equipped. Support from the local team was outstanding. They were helpful and friendly. Hopkins is a nice village - simple with enough amenities to allow for an active vacation while avoiding many of the pitfalls of tourist locations. The local people were amazingly friendly. We had a car which allowed us to get around the region in our own time. Our family has travelled many parts of the world and this was one of our favourite vacations.

BELIZE CONDO

  • 4 of 5
The property was excellent with great personnel support on site. We had great difficulty finding the property. I understood the roads were clearly marked and I did not need an SUV auto. I ended up driving North to Mexico before realizing I had taken the wrong road which was not marked well at all. Very disappointing as I was not prepared with such a challenge. The roads are horrible and an SUV is the only way to travel.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you enjoyed the townhouse..

Sorry about getting lost.. we provide detailed directions to get to Hopkins.. and yes there are not a lot of signs but before very major turn there is a large overhead green and white sign over the highway providing direction.. just that there are very few major intersections.

My first suggest in my notes is to buy a detailed map of Belize at the airport before heading out.

The main roads are 2 lane paved roads with filled pot holes. We travel 50-60 mph on the flats and 45-50 mph on the Hummingbird.. travel a speed your comfortable, particularly if your gawking. The Hummingbird Highway is a beautiful curvy hilly road through the jungle. Then you turn onto the Southern Highway.. flat and straight. Its does gets rough when you get to Hopkins , the roads are dirt and rough.. the government has not been through to grade roads recently.
contact me with your travel questions.. Doug

KIDZ KONNECT MISSION TRIP

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic place to spend a month on mission!

The house is better than advertised; Well equipped, beautifully maintained and in an awesome location.

Highlights of the trip (besides working with the kids of Hopkins, Pomona, Silk Grass, Alta Vista & Steadfast) were:
Bocawina waterfall rappelling and zip lining + Scuba with Hopkins Undersea Adventures (say "Hi" to Declan & Lucie)
Great food to be had at Chef Rob, Love on the Rocks, Hopkins Bay, Barracuda Bar & Driftwood Pizza with a special mention going to Georgia's Quesadillas at King Cassava's

Big shout out to Angel on "security" as well as Anthony, Dana & Gil for taking care of anything that needed it.

We'll be back in Hopkins for sure and... if it's available... in Biama house. Thanks Doug!

Hopkins is a small fishing village with an inviting, laid back vibe. This village is quaint and offers a great opportunity to unplug and enjoy nature. Local restaurants and shops will give you an awesome opportunity to enjoy the local culture. Make sure you check out the cave tubing at Jaguar's Paw and the zipline at Mama Noots. The Mayan ruins are far and are well worth the visit!
