Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms

White orchid villa is a one of a kind property sitting on the bank of the Sittee River minutes from Hopkins just up River from the marina. The just finished villa is located on two acres off beautiful rain forest and has many large majestic trees including cedars, mahoganies, mangos,mayflowers, breadfruit and many species of palms. The property also contains a wide variety of botanical plants and fruiting bushes and trees which attract all kinds of birds and other wildlife.

The air conditioned villa is designed to allow ultimate viewing off the natural beauty of the surroundings. The vaulted living and dining rooms have large windows facing one of the greatest river views in belize. The modern kitchen has a 10 foot panorama window which over looks a very large mahogany tree and several fruit bering trees which attract hundreds of birds to them daily. In front off the house there is a large tiled patio and a second, screened and covered, one to the side of the living room. There are two large vaulted bedrooms with king and queen beds and two washrooms complete with oversized showers.

There is a small dock on the river that is great for fishing off and a great spot to watch the sun set. In the winter months the river can be so smooth you can hardly tell where the River ends and the sky begins. There is a fishing rod for your use in the villa. You can buy shrimp at the grocery store for bait. We also have a canoe for our guest to use. You will be able to step out of your house into a canoe for an amazing ride at your leisure.

The villa is suitable for a great family get away or a quite couples retreat close to all the amenities that the area has to offer. If your a bird watcher this is the spot for you. We have a wide variety of birds visiting the property all the time. The local River guides sometimes use our lot to point out various trees and wildlife. If your a fisherman there is no better place to stay you can fish off the dock or take a canoe and fish any where on the river or in Anderson lagoon farther down River. We also have two bikes for your use.

We can have our property manager assist you making reservations for any excursion you want in Belize.

Come stay with us for an on forgettable vacation.

Private and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed for cleanup (laundry facilities) and cooking. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with view of river. We rented kayaks and enjoyed the river right out the back door.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in March, 2017. Everything was perfect! The caretakers are very friendly and helped us with any questions we had. This is a beautiful house with an amazing view of the river. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a little paradise in Belize.

A great find!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful. We enjoyed the screened in porch for hours listening to the symphony of birds and rain on the roof. The caretakers and property manager were very helpful and we highly recommend this villa. Be prepared for difficult road conditions.

Beautiful Belize Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home located on the Sittee River. Very comfortable, well stocked with plenty of space for 5. Elvira, the care taker was very attentive to any request we had. Rupa, the owner, responded promptly to all questions I had before the trip. We enjoyed watching the birds and wildlife in the surrounding area. This is our 6th trip to Central America and the 1st time we have seen toucans. Probably saw at least 15 in the surrounding area over our 5 day stay. Be sure to bring binoculars. Make sure you have a vehicle for the drive in as it is a bit remote and rough -- no golfcarts or cars. 4WD only. Portions of the road to the property and to the marina were flooded while we where there but it was not a problem for our Jeep Liberty. Only con I had was my kids couldn't walk to town, ( 1.5-2 miles away down a muddy dirt road). In drier weather it might have been more doable. We had to drive ourselves and them anywhere they wanted to go. Recommend T & C Restaurant, Curve Bar at the Marina, Siomare Restaurant and Eds Fast food cart at the entrance to Hopkins. Also recommend See More Adventures. My kids went snorkeling off shore at Glover's Reef. Highlight of their trip! Very friendly and more reasonably priced than the other companies. If you need cash and the ATM is not working, (in my case for 4 days) Happy's Grocery store will give you cash back when you make a purchase. Anthony the property manager informed me of this and it was nice to know.

Perfect home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

It was a real treat staying at this home. I have been to Belize a few times before this trip (Dec. 2016) and have found that most accomodations are lacking, but this was not the case here. The home was modern, clean, and well stocked. There were plenty of cups, glasses, plates, bottle openers, silverware, pens, and even coffee. The view of the river from the porch is stunning. The home is located away from the village so there is no noise from traffic or other activity. The air conditioners worked very well.

This home is a hidden gem and I am very glad I found it. My wife and I stayed here with another couple and when the nightly cost of the home is split in half, the cost of our stay was less than most hotel rooms with a fraction of the space and convienences.

A wonderful retreat.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with a gorgeous view. Very well stocked with excellent ammenities within. The care taker and his family are very sweet. We felt safe here and enjoyed watching the birds amd iguanas while have morning coffee. Make sure you have a vehicle for the drive in as it is a bit rough -- no golfcarts or cars.
