About the property

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 5 year old daughter named Inaya and a 9 month old son named Callan. This is our sixth year as a guest house, and we are loving it!

Damian Grieco purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Damian Grieco chose Hopkins

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.

Beautiful spot and great people

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Coconut Row!! The people who work there (Kyra, Damian, Tanisha, Matthew and Andre) just make it all work. Always with a smile, always around to chat with and made us feel at home. We loved our little house on the ocean (yes truly steps from the ocean) - two porches that face the ocean (watching the sunrise over the ocean with your coffee and the sunset with your Belkin beer on the roof). We loved our beach (cleaned daily by Matthew and Andre). We loved all of the sweet dogs that follow you everywhere in town. We took advantage of all of the trips offered and arranged by the folks at Coconut Row. All of the trips were fun, amazing and authentic - especially our cooking class that was done by Kyra's mom, our snorkeling trip that was through Noaelle's and run by Bert, the chocolate tour in the Mayan village, our great Sailing trip! Just a note: Hopkins is a small authentic Belize town. We found it really friendly but folks do not have a lot money. You are not in a walled off resort. So you have to expect that the beaches (not ours) have trash on them. If you want pristine surroundings - Hopkins might not be for you. If you want friendly people, authentic Garifuna culture, and a great place to stay in the middle of it all - then Coconut Row is the best!!

Ocean front and close to the store!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. This was our first time in Hopkins. It was easy to find, parking was not a problem and the store was a very quick walk. We booked a fishing trip and that was amazing. We even got to eat the fish we caught. I would highly recommend staying here. The kitchen was decked out with all the supplies you would need. It even has things I don't have in my own house!

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 !
