Hopkins Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Habaru House apartment 31 G is a ground floor of the Habaru House. It is deluxe apartment with a queen size bedroom for up to two people.

South of the Village proper the Habaru House is a 12-15 minute walk to outstanding oceanfront restaurants and several road side eateries in an area I call “south Hopkins”. Email me for a 'map of Doug’s favorites'. The Village proper is a short bicycle ride away on one of our owner supplied bicycles or rent a golf cart from us.

It is a terrific home base for all your Belize adventures. We are located on one of the nicest beaches in the country. Enjoy the beautiful oceanfront from the white sand beach or ground floor covered patio with its exotic cane ceiling. On the beach for your use are beach chairs under a Mayan palapa, a lazy day hammock, and an outside charcoal grill.

The Habaru House 31G is an open living area on the ground floor with 3 sets ocean facing French doors. Local artwork and wall hangings enhance the atmosphere. If you choose to cook in you will enjoy the fully equipped kitchen with exotic wood cabinets adjacent to the dining and living areas.

The flooring is Mexican tile, all exterior and interior trim is Belize mahogany. The interior doors are hand made from local “poison wood”, known for its outstanding wood grain. The spacious master bedroom has walk-in shower with glass surround and a unique hand craved stone sink.

About Doug Barber

Saltwater fly fishing was the addiction that brought my family to Hopkins, Belize but it was the laid back atmosphere and warm, friendly people of Hopkins that made our decision to build a home an easy one.

Doug Barber purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Doug Barber chose Hopkins

Hopkins was a natural choice for me. The flats are a quick panga ride away and the local restaurants are just down the beach. If you are looking for a relaxed, laid back town, Hopkins fits the bill perfectly.

What makes this apartment unique

Tranquility and comfort; the Habaru House is set on a double lot for added privacy. The huge back deck is a perfect place for you as you gaze over the Caribbean Sea. Many mornings you will find flocks of Green Parrots in the tree surrounding the house.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Anthony and Doug,

?Debbie and I have had a wonderful wonderful stay here at the Hubaru house. We have enjoyed the snorkeling, fishing, sightseeing, dining, relaxing and just all around peaceful stay. Our kayaking experience was definitely an adventure. We used the largest kayak and doubled up on it to trek over to the marina and back. Ocean became a little rough coming back and only toppled us once! I only lost my sunglasses! My cellphone was in a Tupperware container, thank goodness. I noticed the kayak becoming unstable as we approached the marina, so upon arrival we pulled the kayak up the shore and noticed a lot of water in it. I drained the water out, ate lunch and we made it back OK.

?We are going to do the Monkey river trip Thursday and take the "D Express" to Honduras Friday morning. We have truly enjoyed the Hubaru home and would recommend it to everyone we know. We thank all of you for this opportunity we have had to be able to experience Hopkins. ? Thank you,?

24 days in paradise

  • 5 of 5

It is only a vacation if you leave... almost didn't. Anyone can buy a house and rent it out to tourists, but Doug and family have created a experience that far surpasses your expectations. All the pre-trip information is invaluable for planning and it continues once you arrive. Anthony and Dana were there almost every day to see if there was anything we needed, and if we did they were so pleasant and helpful. I can repeat the accolades about how nice it is and what an amazing place is to stay because it is all true and then some; however, the real difference between renting this from Doug and any other property is the experience Doug provides. We found ourselves saying "tonight when we get home" or "do we have any milk at home" the first week.

His recommendation to stop by and join Tony and Angela at Beaches and Dreams (Barracuda Bar & Grill) for dinner was spot on. The food is amazing, the prices are very fair, the views are breathtaking, and the owners make you feel like family. I am a seafood LOVER and Tony makes lobster to die for... best I have ever had.

Hint: Milk comes on Friday and fresh fruit is Tuesday and Friday to the grocery store. Bring lots of Back Woods Off and you will have a blast... even in the off-season.

Habaru Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at the Habaru House! Gil, Anthony, and Donna were so friendly and accommodating. They were a wealth of information, and very attentive. The house itself, like all VRBO's has a few quirks (such as bathroom / bedroom doors that are tricky to operate at first), but I really cannot complain about a thing. It would be a great reminder to guests to tell them to search the BACK of the house for the "Front" door & key box. I would highly recommend this place for a couple looking for a Belizian love-nest! Tell Anthony & Donna, Gil, & Mrs. Gil that they deserve a nice vacation in Central Oregon. We will pick them up and host them at our house for a week if Mr. Doug will send them to Portland.

You must stay here when you go to Hopkins!

  • 5 of 5

The property was in perfect condition, inside and out. Everything was exactly as described in the informational materials that Doug supplied. The caretakers, Anthony and Gilbert, were great sources of information about local activities, and the bikes and kayaks gave me all the means of transportation that I needed.

The fully equipped kitchen and fresh fruit/veggie stand in town made it possible for me to eat out or in, as I desired.

I will certainly be back!

Wonderful!!

We loved it! Everything was very well attended to and the staff is personable and gets anything done that you need done.You can't believe the beach is right out your front door and the use of kayaks and bikes was just the touch we needed.

Great location, great place

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location in on Belize's southern coast with a very comfortable house on the beach - good for a couple or for a whole family. With access to some of the world's most beautiful snorkeling (Reef) , rain forest with waterfalls, Mayan Ruins. Safe waters. Good restaurants. Great housekeeping and (if wanted) meal cooking by the caretakers wife. Loved it. And, if still available, will be back. And this recommendation from a family that has spent vacation in Europe (Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, UK, Sweden) and the U.S. (Hawaii, Florida, Colorado, California, Montana, Tennessee) and Canada.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had our wedding at Habaru House and it was better than we could have ever imagined. The house was gorgeous (the pictures online don't do it justice!), the grounds keepers were wonderful, and we hired the housekeeper, Dana, to cook for the family for the week. Dana's food was perfect; her meals were by far our favorite. We tried to recreate some of her dishes when we got home, but we didn't come close :) The owner, Doug, gave us so much useful information before our trip. We felt totally prepared and at ease when we got to Hopkins. On the day of our wedding, the grounds keepers, Anthony and Gil in addition to a few others, cleaned the beach and helped us create the most beautiful and beach worthy wedding setting. It was so much fun and so relaxing...I kept telling friends, what other bride gets to snorkel just hours before her ceremony. It was the most beautiful and enjoyable wedding ever...I would recommend it to anyone! The entire family and all of the guests loved Hopkins and the people. And, we loved Habaru House so much, we've vowed to visit every other year to celebrate our wedding anniversary!

Habaru House is a great location from which to base all of your Belize adventures. We are about 1-2 hours away from Belize's famous cave tubing and zip-lining. About the same from Belize's best Mayan ruins. Local Birding and Wildlife tours can be arranged for privately or through the near by resorts. Habaru House is located just a short beach walk away from some of Hopkins best eateries. Best of all the beautiful Caribbean Ocean is only steps away from your back door.
