The picture says it all...

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Rising Sun was nothing short of spectacular!

It truly was one of the best vacations that we have ever had. The view was exactly as pictured, a private beach on the Caribbean with your own two story dock to swim, relax and take in the sunrise and sunsets. The private bar was beautiful and a great place to get together and celebrate this truly amazing spot The house had all the necessary amenities, a wide open floor plan to suit our group of eight leaving us never feeling crowded. Book all of your tours through Mirko who is the property mgr. His people are professional, safe and go the extra mile to teach you about the culture and point out things that you would would not have seen on your own. The owners, Mark and Sabrina, were the most wonderful people and made us feel like their home was our home. They also were helpful in providing recommendations for shopping, restaurants and attractions. If you have any doubt about booking this place, don't hesitate as it will be one of those vacations that will be a lasting memory.

A casual, relaxing, Belizian paradise. We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six adults all loved Villa Rising Sun. The unit is very spacious, allowing for privacy as well as plenty of space for family time. Additionally, the villa is incredibly comfortable and well located... Among other things, we enjoyed watching manatees from the end of the dock and took two great fishing and snorkeling tours with Blue Horizon that picked us up at the same dock. (If you can, request Lincoln as your guide. He is outstanding.) We rented a car, which we were happy about, as we visited several towns while in Belize, but it certainly isn't necessary if you plan to stay in the area. Finally, the proprietors, Mark and Sabrina, couldn't have been more gracious and accommodating and Mirko, the property manager, can book all of your adventures, including the snorkeling and fishing trip mentioned above. We hope to return soon!

Villa Rising Sun is the PERFECT home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Hopkins three years ago and were disappointed to learn that the house we stayed in was no longer available for our return trip this year. Then, we found Villa Rising Sun. We travel quite a bit, and we almost always book through VRBO or other similar sites. Villa Rising Sun is by far one of the best places we have stayed. The owners, Mark and Sabrina, thought of everything in preparing this property for rentals. The house is beautiful and completely equipped with everything you might need. The exterior of the property is no different, with its beautiful, well-kept beach, a wonderful pier and two-story deck, and, of course, the outdoor bar. We could go on and on about the property and the amenities, but that would provide only parts of the benefits of this property. The owners (and upstairs residents) are truly jewels. They greeted us upon our arrival and made sure we knew they were there for anything we needed, and they were. During our visit, It became clear that they not only provide for their guests but, also, for the wonderful people of Hopkins Village. Mirko was also a huge help in assisting with our reservation, in answering all of our numerous questions prior to arrival, and in arranging all of our various excursions off of the property. If you are planning a trip to Hopkins, you will not be disappointed with Villa Rising Sun and Mark and Sabrina.
