About jannette melvin

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

water

in the country

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.

Awesome vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

Family of 6 plus bro-in-law rented entire top floor for 14 days. The condo was GREAT! Excellent accommodations (inside and out) and right on a private beach w/ cabana. Sittee Point/Hopkins was perfect for us. We're more into an adventure vacation without the partying/crowds that you'll find in San Pedro and Ambergris Caye. So for a central point to hit the adventure activities, Hopkins is it. Placencia is a bit south and longer ride to the activities. Dangriga is rougher as far as atmosphere. If you're into the resort/all-inclusive atmosphere, the condo may not be for you and you might want to look at the resorts in Hopkins Village. This condo/location is great for folks who like their privacy/independence. Janette and Missy can setup/book all the activities for you or you can do it on your own. Two points I need to make about the condo location: 1]. you should really have either a rental car or a golf cart. The restaurants, etc. in Hopkins Village are in reality several miles away over dirt roads with lots of pot holes/bumps. If you're an avid biker you could do it, but I think it would get old real fast especially with a large family/group. Also, if you want to travel to activities outside of Hopkins you'll need a car (preferably with decent ground clearance). You can do it via tours, but we found that we were able to coordinate all of our activities and drive ourselves at a significant cost savings to having someone book tours for us. Examples of our activities: SCUBA, spear fishing, fishing, crabbing, kayaking, zip lining, Mayan ruins, cave tubing, zoo, etc. 2]. The sand fleas (no sees) and mosquitos in Hopkins & at the condo are BAD! Insect repellent an absolute must. Locals use a combination of baby/coconut oil & skin so soft. Have to find what works for you. We were there in June, but the locals told me the bugs are BAD year round. However, if there's a decent breeze, no real fly problem. Back to the condo... Marto and his wife Nikki were absolutely great. Introduced us to the local foods and either prepared them or helped us prepare them. Marto loaned us a crab net for crabbing, his machete for slicing coconuts, took us line fishing, told us where to gather mangos, connected us with his friend for boat fishing, etc. etc. We caught some barracuda and Nikki cooked them for us. A really nice dinner. If we make it back to Belize, we would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend. Thanks to Janette, Missy, Marto, Nikki!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. Hopkins is about 2 miles north of us. Also, if you wore socks and long sleeved shirt you will have no bug bite problems, especially when there is a 7mph breeze Hope to see you again Jim..owner

Awesome Property

  • 5 of 5

We visited Belize for three weeks with the first two planned and the last week open. We enjoyed the condo and Hopkins area so much we decided to spend our last week where we were. As far as value, we paid more for the car we rented than the studio we stayed at. The condo was better than advertised and we would highly recommend it to anyone visiting this area. A vehicle was very helpful but extremely expensive. Would strongly recommend not using Avis as we just got an additional bill for over $700 after paying them over $80/day. Another excellent restaurant is the Sandy Beach restaurant that is right on the beach and very reasonable. If you like to kayak we paddled over to another resort for a breakfast buffet with the added thrill of seeing a couple of grazing Manatees that surfaced about 20 feet from us. If you like to ride horses, Outpost Trails is a very special place with good horses and only a couple of miles South of the Sittee River turnoff from the Southern Highway. The condo is a special place that greatly enhanced our visit in this area.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The family, 9 of us, enjoyed the condo for 15 days. It was absolutely beautiful.

The privacy, the beach, the facilities, the local people all contributed so much to our wonderful vacation. The condo was more then what we expected, large enough for all of us, the grand children loved the shallow beach and we all enjoyed the locale. We visited the ruins, activity sites and the villages throughout the country and used Patrick for snorkeling for 2 separate trips. We kayak in the ocean and ate meals throughout the local village and other areas. Marto and Nicolasa helped us when we needed it, offering advice on where to go and what to see and offered us all kinds of info. and stories. We enjoyed Hopkins and its people and appreciated their hospitality, help and company.

All of us would recommend this place very highly to any family who wants to enjoy either/or a quiet, busy or active vacation because that is exactly what we did. We saw 90% of the country, swam, snorkeled. kayak, viewed the ruins, saw the banana plantations, orange and fruit groves, drove past the acres and acres of sugarcane saw the wildlife including huge snakes in the wild but still we rested and enjoyed the private beach and local dining places and retired to quiet evenings at our beautiful condo. My wife and I were witnesses and stood for a lovely couple to get married whose friends had to go home before time Thanks to all who made our vacation such a memorable event.

Best family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent 12 wonderful days in Hopkins. This is the first time we have rented a private home and were anxious. The owners were amazing at providing details of what to expect while at their rental in Hopkins and in the village. Thanks Bekah & Vicki! The condos were more spacious and beautiful than the photos convey, but the best part ws the privacy (we rented the entire place)! Definately need a vehicle when it rains - we rented a truck at the airport and are so glad we did- we were able to tour around quite a bit of the country. We can't say enough praise for the caretakers Marto and Nicolasa who were so loving and helpful. Their presence was an added bonus to our already awesome time in Belize.
