Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our luxurious beachfront home is the ideal place to relax and get away from it all! Built in 2010 for the sophisticated traveler, you could spend your days on one of the most beautiful deserted beaches in the world or opt for adventures that range from world-class scuba diving to exploring Mayan ruins to tubing through underground rivers to one of the many exciting activities Belize has to offer. Let our concierge do all the planning and booking for you!

This brand-new home is beautifully decorated and includes unique local art pieces to add to your enjoyment. Mahogany wood cabinets, doors, funiture and accents combined with marble floors and granite countertops add to the luxurious ambiance. Of course, a flat-screen HDTV and DVD player, cable TV, iPod docks, wireless internet, as well as reading and DVD libraries mean you can relax as much as you desire.

A fully-equipped kitchen and nearby grocery stores give you the option of cooking whenever you wish. However, you are within walking distance of several excellent restaurants that overlook the ocean. Try walking along the beach to and from your destination to fully immerse yourself in the relaxing and idyllic atmosphere of Belize. Another option would be to let our concierge hire a cook to prepare meals in your own kitchen--a great way to sample some of the mouthwatering cultural dishes of the Garifuna region.

In addition to the comforts and amenities of the home itself, the rooftop patio offers another option for sunning and enjoying the ocean breezes during the day. After dinner, why not retire to the rooftop to relax and be amazed by the millions of stars that grace the skies over the Caribbean?

Your private beach awaits the ultimate, relaxing get-away!

About Maria Miller

Our family has been coming to Belize for ten years. It is now our most frequent vacation destination.

Maria Miller purchased this house in 2010

Why Maria Miller chose Belize

We fell in love with the tranquil, get-away-from-it-all atmosphere, the beauty of the pristine beaches, and the friendly people of Hopkins Village. We know you will fall in love with it, too!

What makes this house unique

What we like most about our home is simply relaxing on a quiet, secluded beach with the sun warming us and the crystal waves and ocean breezes cooling our tanned bodies. There is plenty to do and great places to eat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our guestbook: We've had a wonderful week! Hopkins and this house were great spots to celebrate Kathy's birthday and a great base for experiencing this beautiful part of Belize. Kathy actually thought we were tent camping on the beach so was completely surprised and amazed when we walked into the house! We enjoyed long paddles on the ocean and river, hiking in Cockscomb and Mayflower parks, snorkeling out on the reef, biking around town, hanging out with the drummers at Lebeha, and sampling some of the excellent Hopkins cuisine.



Thanks to Maria and Chris for sharing your lovely home, and to Janette and the whole team who maintain and safeguard this beautiful property. Special thanks to the spectacular wildlife. Particular favorites were the dolphins, and reef fish, the orange iguanas along the river, toucans and the fantastic variety of other bird species we encountered...and, of course, Chunko and Cash!

Absolutely Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Not a single thing could have been better than it was!!!!

Private beach which is quiet and peaceful. Kayak for use, a beach you can wade into.

The house was immaculate, had appliances while not needed were very handy, such as dishwasher and clothes dryer and washer, which allowed us to decreased our planned luggage.

The kitchen had what we needed for cooking. The location is awesome for ocean or jungle activities. It also was splendid just for getting some peace and reflection.

Gorgeous beach location, quiet

  • 4 of 5

Thank property is as advertised. Right smack on the beach! Plenty of shade, fairly level walk to the water's edge. We enjoyed it very much, would mention that the AC was excellent, we had laundry facilities and bicycles, a kayak. Second bedroom a bit small, water pressure a bit of a challenge. But hey, you're in paradise so enjoy! We had an amazing vacation. Rent a golf cart.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We arrived 2 days late after surviving Hurricane Earl inland near Belmopan! We arrived to what was our relaxation portion of our trip. We were in Belize a total of two weeks, and could not have chosen a better place to stay.

The grounds had been cleaned up, the house was spotless, and we could not have been more pleased. You can walk out in the ocean for quite a bit and still stand up. Waters were a little murky after the hurricane when we arrived but soon cleared up to a crystal clear blue view! The house itself is in perfect condition, with anything and more than what one needs for a beach vacation.

Communication with Janette and Maria were great. If we needed anything, they were easy to contact and arrange anything for us.

We enjoyed the solitude of the beach the most and put the chairs and hammock to good use.

Security patrolling at night was a bonus, although we felt safe at any given time.

EVERYONE in Belize was nice and friendly.

This was my first trip to a beach in 3 years and could not have chosen a better place.

Thanks again to everyone!!!

Paradise for the Family!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything from owner communication to the property and the location was five stars! The photos online don't do the place justice. We rented a car in Belize City and drove to Hopkins - make the trip in the daylight (we didn't!). The house is just far enough away from town to feel like you have a private beach, but close enough that you are in the middle of all the fun in minutes. The full kitchen is perfect, but if you want to grill steaks, chicken or seafood, bring some in dry-ice from the US (not much in terms of fresh meats and seafood in the markets). The kids spent hours each day in the water, snorkeling and jumping off the pier. Eating on the covered pagoda at the end of the private pier was a favorite for everyone.

The owner was out of the country when we were there, but very attentive and responsive via email. We've used VRBO many times before, but this was by far everyone's favorite. What a gem this property is!

Things to do while you are there?

-Tina's Kitchen for a traditional meal.

-"Hopkins Kulcha Tours" (Charlton is an amazing guide - we went to Mayan Ruins, St. Herman's Cave and Blue Hole Park).

-Waterfalls, hiking and diving in the jungle/mountains around Hopkins (30 minutes away)

-Thongs Cafe for Breakfast (amazing juices and smoothies!)

-Sit, relax and enjoy!!!!
