About Jeffrey Vogt
Our family loves to travel and visit exciting places.... We love Belize because of the people, the wonderful food, swimming, ruins, and rainforests.
Jeffrey Vogt purchased this House in 2016
Why Jeffrey Vogt chose Hopkins
The property is private and quiet, right on the ocean, it is a wonderful place to relax and not be disturbed. You are minutes away from the friendly village of Hopkins. Placencia is about 30 minutes away if you want to be in a more "touristy" location. The location to me is perfect because you can balance your time with activities or just sit on the beach and do nothing and you will not be disturbed.
What makes this House unique
It's your own piece of paradise, with a pool, the ocean, two independent living units that give you some separation from your guests or family during your vacation. It's nice to visit your family or friends but also this property gives you some alone time if you want it.

This trip has been amazing.
The owner, Jeff was very responsive, easy to communicate with. Angel was a great host, he arranged a couple of trips for us, provided us with advice when we needed it.
The house will not disappoint. The house is huge. We are 6 adults, and we have more than enough room. We cooked our meals upstairs at night, served snacks and made drinks by the pool by day. Beds are super comfy, I slept so well here.
The beach is all sand, and fairly shallow. Waves were nice, depending on the breeze of course. Great place to swim.
Alot of the reviews mentioned the bugs. Here's my opinion, can they be bad? Of course, we have mosquitoes and noseeums in Canada every spring, and they are nasty back home. My experience here, I used Muskol twice. If you get a nice breeze from the ocean which we did almost everyday, bugs were not an issue. We even had a praying mantis in the house for a bit, that was so cool. I tried feeding him a stunned house fly, he went for it and missed, in the process, she let herself out.
If you have a hammock, bring it! So glad I saw those palm trees in the pics. I spent hours relaxing under them in my hammock.
I brought my headlamp, it was great for the walk back from Mangoes (about 3 mins walk).
Wish I had brought binoculars. Quite a few different birds flying around. Pelicans are fun to watch.
We rented a couple of cars. Hopkins is about 2.5 to 3 miles away (approximately). There are 3 larger grocery stores in town with everything you need.
If you are buying beer, you can buy it either warm, or cold. Warm case of beer is 6$ usd less, not that it mattered much.
Cockscomb Wildlife Sanctuary was very interesting. It's approximately 30 mins away. We did a self guided tour to Ben's Bluff, you will get a hell of a workout climbing the ridge, but it's worth it. We jumped into a pool with a waterfall on the way back.
Hopkins is a very relaxing place, and the people were very friendly. What more can you ask for? I hope you enjoy Belize as much we did.
Truly a paradise when you stay at this beautiful home with a pool and right on the beach!
We "LOVED" our stay. This house will overwhelm you when you see how big it really is. Angel, the local guy who keeps an eye on the property, was very nice, pleasant to work with, and was there to answer ALL our questions the first full day of our arrival.
Everyone we met in Hopkins was super friendly. Check out Mangos Bar, less than 2 blocks away, for good bar food, drinks, and a little less pricey than most of the restaurants in town.
Be sure to bring several types of bug spray.. Deet repels some of the bugs. The locals recommend baby oil to prevent the sand bugs from biting.
Great place! Lots of room, clean and in a great area. Enjoyed Hopkins and the area. Wonderful diving and snorkeling.
What a beautiful property! Well stocked. Great location. Property owner and manager very responsive to questions/concerns. Angel even coordinated snorkeling, fresh fish for dinner, and went and bought a new hair dryer for us! Only downfall were the gnats/bugs being terrible.
The home is beautiful. Right on the ocean. Enjoyed the swimming pool also. I would stay here again if I am back in the Hopkins area. Angel was great! We booked all our excursions for us. I don't see how anyone can go wrong staying at this property.
I am glad you and your family had a wonderful time
This home was perfect for our family of 7. It allowed our older children (18+) to have their own space in the lower unit while us adults stayed in the upper unit. The pool was great to enjoy in the mornings before we headed out for the day. The only small room for improvement would be more towels when large groups are staying.
