Overview

Belize Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to Coconut Row Guest House! Our beachfront villa is right on the Caribbean beach in the heart of the Garifuna village of Hopkins, Belize.

We are located directly in the center of the village, within walking distance of all Hopkins’ restaurants, bars, stores, cafes, and other attractions. But you’d never know it while relaxing on our beach, which confers a high degree of privacy and solitude. Right next to the villa lies beautiful shaded seating area under the coconut trees, perfect for a bbq or reading a book. Eat or drink all the coconuts you like - they're delicious!

This two bedroom villa is right on top of the sea! It has a deck attached to the living area which opens to a private beach, as well as a tiled verandah on top of the house. There is a kitchen area, a living area, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Our cleaner will come in every day to clean the villa.

The front bedroom has a full size bed and receives an incredibly strong sea breeze in addition to a ceiling fan and an air conditioner. The rear bedroom has two single beds, a ceiling fan and an air conditioner. The kitchen has a stove and oven, microwave, refrigerator, all pots and cooking utensils necessary for meal preparation, a coffee maker, plates, glasses, silverware, and a dining table. The living area has a ceiling fan, coffee table and chairs, as well as a flat screen tv with HBO and many premium channels (HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, etc.)

We provide lounge chairs, beach towels and wireless internet free of charge to our guests, and there are laundry and transportation services available, as well as bicycles for those who wish to ride through the village. The beach is raked and maintained and the villa is cleaned every day. We always have staff on the premises for assistance and security.

We offer transportation to/from the International Airport, Dangriga Airstrip or any other location. We can help arrange any tour or activity, and there is a lot to do!

Dive, snorkel or fish the world’s second largest barrier reef, explore the many Mayan ruins, hike through the rainforest and swim in spectacular waterfalls, go cave tubing or cave exploring, ride through the jungle on horseback, canoe or kayak down the river, learn about Mayan and Garifuna culture, go birdwatching, take a pleasure/snorkeling cruise on a catamaran, search for manatees… this is just a sample of the incredible number of things there are to do here! We can help you do them all!

About Damian Grieco

I have been living in Hopkins (the same property) since 2003. I married a wonderful woman from Hopkins (Nisha) several years ago and we have a 3 year daughter named Inaya. This is our fourth year as a guest house, and we are loving it!

Damian Grieco purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Damian Grieco chose Belize

This property is perfect; right in the center of the village and an easy walk to most places in town. Even so, the property is quiet and the beach is one of the nicest in the village.

What makes this apartment unique

Most of the nicer vacation rentals (or nicer beaches) are in the 'resort area' which is outside of Hopkins Village, and which requires a car to go anywhere.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Belize was perfect thanks to Coconut Row! The Sunrise Suite was a wonderful home away from home. The staff went above and beyond in keeping it clean daily -- even picking up after us! Kyra was the absolute best when we needed anything or had any questions. Our vacation was beyond perfect. Many days we just lounged around reading or simply listening to the ocean waves. We went snorkeling and toured Xunantunich (which Kyra organized for us) and also spent a few hours in Placencia. There are a lot of restaurants within walking distance. Our favorites were Luba Laruga, Thongs, Geckos, and Driftwood. Although everywhere we ate was fabulous.

We really fell in love with Hopkins and were able to see several other vacation rentals along our many beach walks but I must say we chose the best one with Coconut Row!

Great place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

The unit is right on the sand with several hammocks to choose from to relax in, as well as lounge chairs. The water is soooo warm. Just walk right in. The unit is nice (note: no TV or phone) and the A/C in each bedroom makes for a comfortable night sleep.

Everyone in the village are nice and helpful.

Kyra, your friendly cruise director, makes this the place to stay. She works with your schedule. Whatever you want Kyra can pretty much grant you.

Amazing Vacation in the Village of Hopkins

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the Sunset Suite at Coconut Row and had THE most amazing time. The location right on the beach just can't be beat and you're within easy walking distance of everything in Hopkins, so you don't need a vehicle. Damian, Coconut Row's owner and his great staff, arranged for any travel we needed, whether that was a ride from the airport or to and from any of the many activities that they will set up for you. We ate so much amazing, fresh food while we were there, we were not looking forward to returning home. My teenage son even said that the thought of fast food was completely unappealing after our week of eating our way up and down the village. There was no TV and no cell service on our phones, so we had fantastic family time, playing the games and reading the books that were provided in the suite, swimming, relaxing on the beach, and exploring the village and meeting really nice people every day. If we get a chance, we will definitely be back as "repeat coconuts"!

Restful Respite in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I went to Belize to deal with our fathers estate. We were received with thoughtful attention and assistance to do what we needed to do at a time when we were grieving and tired. Our room had sweeping views of the ocean. Not once did we feel unsafe night or day. Paulette from Luba's just next door fed us coconut rice and chicken smothered with sweet salsa, just a door down in the beach. Breakfast at Luba's was french toast or Belizean style jack and eggs. There is a general store within walking distance and the highway to Hopkins is easy to drive on rentals at Hopkins auto rental and they bring you an SUV to the airport. A five star experience on a three str budget !

Excellent accomodations and friendly staff.

  • 5 of 5

My cousin and I, mature ladies, stayed a week in the Sunrise Suite with 2 bedrooms. The suite was cleaned every day and even included coffee! The grounds were racked every day the whole property was very well maintained and beautiful. I could go on and on about our experience but the best was Daimen and his wife Nashi helping to schedule all our day trips and transportation, everything was perfect. Royden, grounds and maintenance, cut down some coconuts for our Rum drinks. Coconut Row is in the center of Hopkins, across the street from a grocery store and walking distance to restaurants. What a wonderful place to visit!

Stunning Beach Front, Perfectly Situated Home in Hopkins

  • 5 of 5

We are loving our stay at Coconut Row. The beachfront property is absolutely perfect to lay down and tan, walk the beachfront, and enjoy the cool breeze and the waves crashing throughout the day. There are restaurants walking distance to enjoy all sorts of authentic and high end cuisine. My favourites have been Chef Rob and Love on the Rocks. We have also rented dirt bikes just down the road, and did some diving from the local dive shop just a few kilometres up the road. Damion has been our most gracious host, helping up register for diving, zip lining, and taking care of our every need along with making great recommendations. Our villa is maintained daily, meets all of our needs, and has the most stunning view and feel from the rooftop. I would highly recommend Coconut Row to couples as well as families.
