A Great Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5
This was an outstanding vacation rental. Very clean, stylish, and roomy. The front balcony was great for sitting and watching the main street or just relaxing on the hammock. A short walk away from some restaurants and the beach. The kitchen is fully equipped for all of your cooking needs. I would highly recommend this rental!

Wonderful, comfortable place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for four days and it was excellent. We had everything we needed and the unit was very clean, stylish and in a perfect location. We walked to the beach, to dinner at several places and the grocery store is two lots over so having the kitchen so well stocked - we bought groceries and cooked breakfasts. The location is wonderful and the correspondence with Emma, who runs Alternate Adventures under the cabanas, was prompt, helpful and gracious. Be sure to go to Thongs right across the street - we didn't go to this gem until our last morning. Also, the ladies at Sandy Beach Co-op are delightful - they were relaxing on the beach deck when we arrived and I mentioned I was yearning for fried plantains and although they weren't on the menu, she made me a delicious batch :-)
You will not be disappointed staying at Latitude 17.

Bliss in Hopkins!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our time here, the house was just great. It was spotless, very comfortable, and had pretty much everything you could ever need. The front and back decks were just great, we barely spent any time inside! Emma and Wade were so accommodating, and the location is just perfect - close to a grocery, restaurants (the streetside BBQ next door is amazing - $6 Belize for the best chicken ever), and the beach is just a two minute walk. I can't say enough great things!

Our New Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in Hopkins on a Friday night and after first view of this house we were absolutely in love. It is very cozy, inviting, and practical because I love to cook and this house gave us the opportunity to make most of our meals but if you like restaurant there is one literally right across the street. The management team were also very amazing people and conveniently lived right next door for any questions we had. I liked that we had a great space to entertain friends and family that was a short walk to the beach.
Now to the most important part of this review....PRICE...please don't think this is some cheap hole-in-the-wall joint in some no name village. This house is very well taught out with amazing amenities, at a GREAT price, in a culture filled Belizean village. I promise you will not be disappointed!!!

My favourite place - Coming back for sure

  • 5 of 5
I have been travelling through Belize for four weeks and had different rentals, but the one I enjoyed most was my stay in Latitude17 in Hopkins. Emma who is the caretaker of this rental is simply great and helpful with every information. The house is very clean and comfortable and in the kitchen is everything you might need. There was a nice breeze going through the house all time so we even didn't need the AC. I stayed there 1 week and I have heard a mosquito ONCE. What makes it special is sitting on the porch or lying in the hammocks and just watch the village life passing by. Children selling their delicious sweets and fresh bread from the bakery and going over the street to meet with some of the most friendly local people at Thonge's cafe (thanks Karen!) just to chat or having a marvellous hairbraiding by one of the great women (thanks Charleen!) living there. It's just a few steps to the sandy beach and the Caribean Sea and different to other beaches in Belize you can get in to swim without walking through seagrass. With the complimentary bikes at the house you an get to the Lebeha drumming school within 5 minutes and take lessons at the Garifuna drums. Jabbar and Warren are great teachers! And if you come back you can pick some mangos and the magnificant soursop fruit just from the backyard!
Another great idea is to rent a motorbike at the shop next to the house or book some of the tours they offer there. There is a lot you can do round Hopkins either with a guided tour or just by yourself. I did a lot of ride bikes alone and enjoyed to get in contact with the most friendly and helpful people living there and I always felt secure. Hopkins is also a great place to enjoy fresh fish and get delicious Garifuna cooking at Innie's restaurant. On your way back you step in at one of the gift shops to admire the beautiful handiworks the people in the village are doing and if you meet Hopkins postman just ask him bout his experiences under water and you won't stop laughing anymore. Hopkins is a special place and in Latitude17 you are staying right in the heart. I'LL COME AGAIN!!!!
