Philip at Xunantunich Maya site just up the road from Kumquat Cottage. Also owned by Preston Wright.

San Ignacio is the center for many great cultures, fine foods, friendly people, amazing nature, and rich educational experiences.

A private boutique resort hotel for one family surrounded by lush gardens and rich wildlife. Not your usual gated condo type of vacation.

Great location and great vibe

Our family recently stayed at Kumquat Cottage and found it to be perfectly suited for our needs. We were able to walk in to town for dinner or to meet up with tour operators. Sitting on the roof and watching the stars and thunderstorms in the distance simultaneously was really fabulous. The kitchen is well appointed and the decor is fun. The people of San Ignacio (Belize in general) are some of the nicest and friendliest people you can ever hope to meet. (Honest too. While in San Ignacio we accidentally left our bank card in the Versateller and went back to the bank the next day and someone had turned it in!) We felt very safe for our teenage girls to jog in the evening throughout the neighborhood. Dale and Jovan were helpful and accomodating. On a couple of nights the weather turned so humid that we had trouble cooling off the living room area so we carried the giant bean bag and futon pads into the bedroom and everyone slept in there with the air conditioner and awoke refreshed and ready to go again the next day. Tips for other travelers: Rudy at Hun Chik Tours is a fantastic guide. Fuego and Serendib had great food. Stop at a fruit vendor and pick up bananas and mangos and put them in the freezer and just put in the blender and add milk in the morning for a great smoothie. Rio On Pools/Rio Frio Cave; Crystal Cave, Barton Creek, Xunantunich were all fantastic day trips.

The Kumquat Cottage ia a very large one bedroom. It was clean and the management was on top of things. We found all the amenities we wanted and some extras. The grounds were private and a delight to sit out in the late afternoons with a cool beverage. I would not recommend this place for handicapped as there are steps and changes in elevation although it is on one level, kind of. The outside also slopes.
It is a couple blocks to walk to town, up hill on the way home. We made the walk at least twice each day. There are enough good restaurants to provide variety. The people we met were friendly without exception. A market is open daily with fresh local produce and stuff.
We highly recommend Hanna Stables. For $30US each you can ride a horse with a knowledgable and fun guide to Xunantunich Mayan Site. The ride is one and a half hours thru pasture and woods along the Mopan River each way. The river is crossed by way of a hand cranked ferry. Xunantunich is amazing.

Our stay at Kumquat Cottage could not have been more perfect. We loved the cottage and found the gardens to be amazing. The location was perfect also - an easy walk into town and far enough away to be quiet. Many thanks for sharing your wonderful cottage with us.

Kumquat cottage is delightful, and everything the photos and information describes. The kitchen has everything you need to cook for yourself, although the town's restaurants are so good you'll want to eat out sometimes. We stayed for a week, and loved both the cottage and San Ignacio. Sadly the weather wasn't cooperative, but that's Mother Nature for you! We visited ATM....not to be missed. We also drove ourselves to Caracol, which was a worthwhile yet bone-jarring experience. Xunantunich is lovely, as is the cafe across the road on the right coming off the hand crank ferry. Saturday market is hustle and bustle; Spanish Lookout very pretty and worth the drive if you have wheels.
Nigel was very helpful in orienting us to the cottage; it was great to have the phone, wifi, and laptop. The gardens are very beautiful with OT's of plants, trees and birds.
All in all.....lovely.

We recently stayed a week here and loved it! Kumquat cottage was spacious, clean and we loved the backyard. Using the rooftop as a patio provided us with great views. The bed was so large we actually had to search for each other a few times! The availability of a laptop at the cottage was a surprise and greatly appreciated. We didn't use it but the cell phone was a comfort to have as well. Cottage is close to town so we were able to walk to a few points of interest. Highly recommend Xunanwich and Cahel Pech (which is a 20 min. walk from cottage). Sharon and Nigel recommended a tour operator (Elias) for Tikal, who was absolutely fabulous! We watched a few other guides @ Tikal and we were thankful we went with Elias (can't remember the tour company name but he is located in the Casa Blanca Guest house). The market is a must for fresh vegies, fruits and get awesome cheese frm the Mennonite ladies. We travelled on to Caye Caulker from here but we both agree that we liked San Ignacio more. We will be back!
