The Hairy Hut is a beautiful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

My sisters and I really enjoyed our visit to Belize. Pam and Steve really made our stay easy , we opted not to rent a car, and they graciously drove us where ever we needed or wanted to go. The ocean is at your doorstep, watch the sun rise early in the cool of morning or the full moon on a star filled night, all from the living room couch.

While we were there the wind blew much of the time keeping us cooler than we might have otherwise been. It was almost a constant 82 degrees, day and night. Cooling off in the pool next door was always a refreshing option.

We did a combination of eating out and cooking for ourselves. A grocery store is close, Pam and Steve had bikes we could use and the Hut has a full kitchen making cooking at home easy. The town of Siene Bight has a variety of local cuisine small places to eat while travelling just ten or fifteen minutes in either direction offers more upscale choices in Maya Beach or the Placencia village.

Booking Monkey River, Mayan Ruin tours or a snorkeling adventure was easy, accessible and proved to meet or exceed our expectations. We found the people of Belize to be friendly and diverse. We really enjoyed our stay at the Hairy Hut and would return in a heart beat!

Fantastic Property right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property. Everything you need for a great beach vacation. Hut is right on the beach. Lots of chairs and loungers, hammocks too. All the windows and doors open to the beach. Pool next door is the perfect temperature and clean. Pier is great for happy hour. Kitchen has everything you need to make meals. Charcoal grill outside. Bathroom is big and has a gr at hot shower. Town is nearby, so having a car is helpful. We brought three teenagers here and they loved it!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time staying at the hairy hut for two weeks; the house itself is terrific but more importantly Steve & Pam were wonderful hosts. The pictures of the house don't do it justice: the kitchen is MUCH bigger, the stairway leading upstairs is wide and has a consistent pitch, and the bathroom is a lot roomier. Belize is certainly different from being at home, the folks there work at their own pace and sometimes things just don't come off as planned at all. Roll with it!

Steve and Pam make the Hairy Hut an exceptional property to relax in, highly recommended! I'd rate the experience 10 stars if I could, can't wait to return for an extended stay.

Nine of us stayed in the Hairy Hut for eight glorious days in January 2016. The Hut is fabulous, steps from the ocean, beautiful surroundings and the property is gated. We prepared many full course meals in the fully equipped kitchen(the grocery store and vegetable vendor is within a 1/4 mile away). We connected to their wifi, so we were able to connect with our family via our cell phones and tablets. Watching NFL playoffs was a breeze with their cable tv. We heard waves lapping on the shore all night. I watched the sunrise over the ocean every morning on the pier(10 feet from the property line). The breeze off the ocean was incredible.We were able to lock up our passports and cash in the bedroom safe. But the real gem of this property were the hosts, Steve and Pam. They are very knowledgeable about the area. They helped us book tours to the Mayan Ruins, snorkeling, and the Monkey River Tour. Their restaurant suggestions were amazing. At dawn, Steve rakes the sand so our beach was pristine every day. Pam made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Pam and Steve made our trip to Belize incredible. Well worth it!

Fabulous experience at the Hairy Hut!

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Pam were amazing hosts. They were incredibly helpful with any questions we asked or suggestions we needed.

The "hut" was perfect for our family ... the beach and house were well maintained. The kids loved the loft and it was wonderful to open our doors and be yards from the ocean. It was a relatively short drive to Placencia Village for restaurants, shopping and snorkeling tours. We would definitely recommend the Hairy Hut to family or friends heading to Belize.
