Beautiful beach! South of Hopkins

Bedrooms 4
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

4 Condo's, 4 Bedrooms, +6 Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

This is a new house (2010) and no expenses were spared.

Fly into Belize city, rent a car, and drive to our place on the beautiful Hummingbird Highway during daylight - about 2 1/2 hours, great sightseeing of the land. Or take an island hopper plane, Maya Air or Tropic Air, to Dangriga. We can arrange for a taxi to pick you up in Dangriga.

Each condo consists of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2 kitchens.


Each Condo has a large bedroom Suite, with a canopy bed, on one end, and a Studio unit on the other end. All beds are king size, and have a pillow top mattress.

The middle section of the condo, includes a living room, dining area, bar counter, large and fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher.

The spacious studio bedroom has a sitting area, dining area, it's own fully equipped kitchen, and private bathroom with a large walk-in shower.

There are ironing boards, irons, blow dryers, and everything needed to make your stay comfortable.

The condos feature ten-foot ceilings, glass doors, and windows to give ample views of the sea from every room. There are also tile floors throughout, including decks and terraces. All furnishings are locally crafted mahogany furniture.

The condo sits about 100 feet (30+ meters) from the water's edge. The water has a very gradual slope going out to the sea, so it's great for children.

There are three, 2-person kayaks and bicycles for guests to use at their leisure. You can kayak from our canal, up the beautiful Sittee River.

There is also a palapa (thatched roof open structure) which is 30 feet (9 meters) from the waters edge, where you can enjoy a hammock or sit on a beach chair.

Belize hotel tax 9% added to each reservation.

We accept the following:

Bank transfers

Credit cards

About Kotsaftis Associates

We bought the property in 2006 and finished the house (2 condos), in May 2010.

Our 4 children love the area, beach, river, jungle and environment. It's common to see big Iguanas, coatimundi, (long tailed, cute, in raccoon family) lizards, colorful birds, and fruit you've never tasted before.

The biggest draw was the beach, and the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world. Ten miles from your beach to the sea is gorgeous snorkeling, and fishing. The main reef is about 12 miles from shore, with sport fishing, scuba diving, whale watching, etc.

Famous for it's friendliness is the village of Hopkins. They all have a smile on their face, you never meet a stranger, and it's safe to walk the streets at night.

The restaurants have great, very reasonably priced food. Fresh fish is available daily at many of the restaurants. Lobster is available except Feb 15 - June 15.

Truly an adventure you'll never forget. Many have said that it's the best vacation they have ever had. We have the best drinking


in the country

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this unit twice, both times renting out the entire top floor. Most recently our family of 4 stayed on one side and parents on the other. It was perfect! It's a safe area for the kids to run and play or morning walks on the beach. One of the only places in the world you can rent ocean front and have an unobstructed view without tourists in your yard or the ocean full of recreational boats etc. it was purely peaceful. We truly loved our time here.

It's our favorite place to stay and we will continue to come back again and again. Everything is easy here. Thank you so much for hosting us a memorable trip!!

This property is even more beautiful in person than shown online! My family was extremely impressed with everything about the property; space, location, private beach, kayaks, bbq grills, etc! Would definitely love to stay here again. Our caretaker Eloy was also very helpful. Thanks for everything! Hope to see you again in the near future!

Very nice and clean property

  • 4 of 5

The property was very spacious and clean and fully equipped, located right on the beach! Enjoyed use of the kayaks and bikes as well.

Seemed to be a problem with the A/C unit in the master bedroom (constant rattling and noise coming from it - hard to sleep), but can open the windows instead (one window on the ocean side will not open at all though - seized up).

Hopkins is a great town to visit, but note the property is about 5-6 km down a VERY rough dirt road (takes about 20-25 minutes to drive due to the poor condition of the road - SUV/Truck is a must!). Even at that though, it is worth it to get out of town and be in a beautiful property like this and have the privacy as well.

Bring bug spray - sand fleas/mosquitoes are pretty bad in this part of Belize!

Thanks again, and Eloy was great as well, very caring and helpful!

A beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The yard, view and rooms are all beautiful and in good condition and we liked using the kayaks. The stand out for us was Eloy, the property manager, he went way above and beyond to make sure our stay was outstanding. Only minutes from a modern and attractive marina and Hopkins "downtown". If you're looking to get away, Hopkins is good for that, not a touristy town...but definitely need a 4-wheel drive

Beach House In Hopkins, Belize

  • 5 of 5

Excellent housing with all amenities and clean spacious living space, plenty of room for large groups or families looking to occupy a large space. We loved the beautiful ocean view, perfect sand on the beaches, and kayaks located on the property to go out and kayak in the crystal clear ocean water. Kind housekeeper and wonderful, clean, home. 10/10 would stay again!

Beautiful property with wonderful management

  • 5 of 5

We rented the entire property for two weeks for an extended family vacation. Everything was as advertised on the website. The leasing agent was prompt, friendly and helpful. The caretakers went above and beyond and were very knowledgable and helpful. When we went out for day trips, Marto and Nikki made sure the property was kept secure. The property is private, beautifully landscaped and comfortable. There are groceries and restaurants near by and lots of adventure trips that can be done in a half day or day. The whole family was very pleased with our stay at Belize beach condos and are already planning another trip.
