“Very cute house at a reasonable price but the bathrooms do need to be remodeled.”

The house was a great value and walking distance to pyramids and great food. My only disappointment was the bathrooms that desperately need to be updated.

“Cozy, spacious house and grounds.”
Reviewed 20 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My family (3 adults) spent 3 nights here during the first week of January. The house is as advertised. It is located about 3 blocks on a packed gravel road up a steep hill from the main highway (Benque Viejo road). The Jalapeño restaurant is at the base of that road, across the street. A grocery store, Hanna's, is next door to the restaurant. So we found it very conveniently located. Downtown San Ignacio, however, is beyond walking distance, for us anyway. so taxis are necessary, especially back to the house because it is all uphill! As reported by other reviewers only the master bedroom and one of the other 2 bedrooms have AC. But we weren't uncomfortable because the outside cooled off considerably at night. So we left all the windows open at night and closed them all again during the day. There were ceiling fans too. The house itself was showing some age, especially in the master bathroom. But there was good water pressure and the WiFi worked flawlessly. We did not use the splash pool because there was an unappealing green stain on the bottom and sides (algae?), but the water looked clean anyway. We did not rent a car, so we had a taxi pick us up from the Tropic Air Mayan Flats airstrip and liked the car and driver so much that we used him several time during our stay. His name is Mario Godoy and his phone number is 625-4555. He has a clean and well maintained car, unlike the typical junk taxis you will find in downtown San Ignacio. We very much enjoyed our stay in Hill View House and can recommend it without reservation.

“Nice house for a large group”
Reviewed 13 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

There were 7 in our group (4 in family and 3 friends all adults).The house certainly met our needs although one of the friends slept in the living room. The beds were comfortable and the baths were clean. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed. The addition of a coffee maker was appreciated when we asked if there was one. The pool was clean and the yard well-maintained. Not much the owners can do about it but the neighbor dogs were noisy during the night. The house was close to town and the Mayan ruins. We did a tour of ATM (used MayaTours downtown) and had a great time. We also did a tour by ourselves to the Mountain Pine Reserve to see Rio Frio Cave, Rio On Pools, and Big Rock. It was a long trip on rough roads and a bit scary running into soldiers with automatic weapons.

Compared to the rest of the buildings, hotels, and houses we saw in the area this house is a gem and provides all the comfort of our home in USA. I would not recommend the hotels downtown. I am very happy we chose this house as it was nice and not that expensive.

We drove in from airport and got there in the dark. Tough with basically no road signs, took a bit to locate the house. But when we got there, Blanca was waiting to show us the house and give us the keys.

“Home away from Home!”
Reviewed 14 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We loved the place, it was like our home away from home. The owners were really welcoming and helpful it made our stay a pleasant one. Relaxing on the deck of this home made us truly appreciate the beauty of this property. The house had all we needed and more. The pool was a great addition and the price was a steal for having the entire home all to ourselves! We would definitely recommend & plan on visiting again soon.
