Our friend Dani's parents came down to San Ignacio for a week. They stayed at a cottage called Kumquat Cottage. We all got to meet them on Friday night when they invited the whole UVM crew to the place for a barbeque and some fun! Dani's dad, also known as the grill master, grilled us up some fresh tilapia and shrimp kabobs while everyone else brought a dish for dinner. Dani's parents were hilarious; we all had so much fun! Her dad made a bocce ball set out of some rocks and limes so that kept us entertained for most of the evening. There was even a dance off between Dani's dad and one of our people at one point. We had so much fun at the cottage that our group has decided to rent Kumquat out on the last weekend we're here in Belize as a final hoorah. Below are some pictures.

BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
What an awesome place! We felt very comfortable here and enjoyed being able to walk to town and the Iguana Conservation Project. The time and care that went into making Kumquat Cottage beautiful inside and out is immediately evident. We were warmly greeted by Ricky, but did not see him like others did during our stay as we were out exploring all day, every day :-) We were looking for toucans in the jungle as we explored, but we saw them here right in the backyard! We took a horse ride the the ruins via Hanna Stables with Santiago as our guide - it was the best! We went to Poustania Land Art Park which was a lot of fun and interesting. Our time here will be remembered forever.

AWESOME STAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for our 10th wedding anniversary. Beautiful place great location! The garden is stunning! Only one suggestion is to get air conditioning throughout the house. We didn't spend a ton of time in the living room because it was so warm. The home has everything you can ask for. Elias was recommended as our tour guide. You MUST ask for him! Love the time we spent here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your suggestion and yes, Elias is amazing. We not only recommend him for the discount our guests receive, but I truly believe he is among the best guides in Belize.

WHAT A AWESOME COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
I did not want a resort. I wanted a beautiful property with a kitchen close to town so I can experience the culture. Boy, did we get we asked for and more. I couldn't be more happier with my choice to stay at Kumquat Cottage. Ricky, the house attendant was very nice and Preston was quick to respond to my emails. I was sadden that I left but, ,WILL come back! We both left content and in love with Cayo.

GREAT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Kumquat Cottage for one week and it was one of the best weeks of our lives! The house was perfect for our needs. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook some meals. The décor was fabulous and well done! A lot of imagination went into it. We are both plant lovers and really enjoyed the tour around the gardens by Ricky. Ricky really made our entire week more enjoyable. He showed us around town when we arrived and then went with us on a couple tours. I feel like he really became a friend to us. He even came over our last night and cooked us dinner! It was a great week and we plan to return and we will definitely stay in Kumquat Cottage again!

GREAT LOCATION AND GREAT VIBE

  • 5 of 5
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.

UNIQUE HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
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.
