Villa Rising Sun = Amazing
The property listed was simply amazing!! The whole process from check in to check out was as smooth as could be!! Mirko, Sabrina, and Mark were always available and made us feel at home. Highly recommend this property!!
Thank you so much. We all enjoyed getting to know everyone and would love to have you guys back.
Villa Rising Sun
Great property. Awesome hosts in Sabrina, Mark and Tango. Property Manager was very thorough from booking thru visit. Watching the sunrise from the deck swing every morning was amazing and ending the day with a cold beverage at the tiki bar was perfect. Meeting the locals (Victor, the beach security guard; Leticia who made fresh orange juice and her daughter to the little boys selling banana cake in town) made us love Hopkins.
The villa had everything we needed for our stay. Fully stocked with kitchen supplies, plenty of towels, beds were comfortable.
It was an awesome trip!
It was wonderful meeting your entire family. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to meet some of our incredible friendly locals. We are glad you also like the new dock swings. You all are welcome anytime, you were terrific guests and we already miss you!
Happy in Hopkins
Villa Rising Sun was perfect for our family of five. We arrived late afternoon; there to great us was not only Mark and Sabrina but Mirko as well.
We spent 8 nights at VRS and cherished every one of them. Every other day we enjoyed the amazing beach/dock in the back yard. The care taker Angel, was so very kind and knowledgeable about the vegetation and animals on or near the property. He was kind enough to even let our kids experience fresh coconut right off of a tree. When we were not enjoying the still waters at VRS we were enjoying all that Belize has to offer; fishing, snorkeling, cave tubing and or zip lining. All of the excursions were booked the day before via Mirko and surpassed all of our expectations.
Mark and Sabrina (and Tango) could not have been better hosts. From sharing their property to making sure everyone had everything necessary, to providing vast information on local food, people and culture.
Mirko was excellent in providing us amazing opportunities on our excursions that all came with awesome guides.
We truly enjoyed the time spent at VRS, Hopkins and the surrounding area.
Our kids are already talking about a repeat visit next year. Until then, we hope that you too will enjoy VRS as much as we did!
Happy in Hopkins!
We truly enjoyed having your family and glad you took advantage of so many of the tours and adventures we offer our guests. Everyone here says hello and we look forward to having you return :)
My family and I stayed at this property for 9 days. IT IS AMAZING!!!! The owners Sabrina and Mark are absolutely great host so friendly and helpful. Their rental property is definitely a paradise that you must experience. The property manager Mirko was amazing, always made himself available to help us plan and schedule our day trips. We can’t thank him enough, we were a large family so at times some of us were going in different directions and trips and he made it so easy. The house and the beach is so clean it is perfect. We will definitely be back!!!
Thank you for the terrific review and for staying with us. It was wonderful meeting your family and we are thrilled you guys had such a terrific time.
Paradise on the Beach
Our week long stay at Villa Rising Sun was perfect! Our hosts Mark and Sabrina provided outstanding service the entire time. They stocked our kitchen with items we requested so that we did not have to shop the evening we arrived, and Mark took us on a tour the next morning to show us everything in the village with his recommendations on shopping and restaurants. They provided a cell phone so we could call whenever we needed any information or help. All their recommendations for dining and touring were spot on for us!!!!
The villa has a lovely bar with tables on the private beach as well as a number of chaise lounges with shade from palm trees. There is a kayak and several large floats for use from the pier and dock and a couple of cute beach games. Bicycles are available for touring around the village. The location is secluded yet very close to the village.
We had a car rented from Crystal in Belize, recommended by our hosts, and for us that was the way to go as we had family members scuba diving with Belize Underwater two doors away while those not diving could drive to the marina or the village to do other things.
The property manager Mirko set us up with several great tours, fishing/snorkeling, Bocawina Rainforest zip lining, and cave tubing. The fishing/snorkeling tour picked us up at our dock, which is really great. We drove to the others and met our guides there. All guides were wonderful! They are well trained, very attentive, friendly and professional. Our dietary restrictions were always taken care of.
Hopkins is the perfect location because it is close to everything you might want to do in Belize. You can enjoy the Mayan mountain activities like zip lining, cave tubing, and rainforest hiking, the shore activities like boating, fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving, 50 interesting restaurants, and local Garifuna
culture. The seniors in our group took it easy with a birding guide and a trip up the Sittee River by boat.
The house itself was more than we expected. It is beautifully stocked with kitchen equipment, has showers that are better than ours at home, superb air conditioning, lovely plush towels and beach towels, and very nice bathrooms. In addition there is are several resident gibnuts and delightful shade everywhere you want it.
If you want to experience the paradise that Belize is, stay at Villa Rising Sun!
We so enjoyed meeting you and your family and hearing about your journey around the world. It is very humbling to receive such a great review from seasoned travelers like yourself. Thank you so much. We hope you might make your way back down in the future.
Our Property Manager, Mirko, is a licensed Tour Operator and Tropic Air agent in Belize. He can recommend and book all of your tours, adventures, and flights here in Belize so we make it very simple to experience all that Belize has to offer.
Hopkins itself is a small fishing village and considered the cultural capitol of the friendly Garifuna. The Hopkins beach is the largest and most beautiful natural beach in Belize. There are about 1500 residents in Hopkins yet we have nearly 50 restaurants and bars.
Villa Rising Sun is located on the south end of the resort district. The resort district is a lot quieter and offers a many of the finest bars, restaurants, and tour facilities just a short beach walk away.
