Beach Front, Casita del Mar, Hopkins Belize

Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Hopkins, Stann Creek
Our 'little house by the sea' is located on one of the best beaches in Belize in the little village of Hopkins. Hopkins is a quaint, friendly and safe fishing village steeped in the Garifuna culture.

Week days are generally quiet and weekends you will be able to take advantage of the local culture as the sounds of music, drumming and weekend events take place.

The house is based on an open concept design for the main living/dining/kitchen area with cathedral ceilings. All windows and doors are screened to let the Caribbean breezes in and keep the bugs out!

Each bedroom is equipped with AC and ceiling fans. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, the guest bedroom has two twin beds. A futon in the living room can be made into a double bed. The living rooms/dining room has several ceiling fans.

Nice little oasis in Hopkins. If you are looking for resort-style vacation with pools, restaurant, manicured grounds, private beach, room service all in a self-contained package, then Casita Del Mar is probably not for you. But if you seek adventure, have an open mind and...More

Hopkins isn't for everyone. If you want exclusive, fancy, shiny and new, don't go. If you want laid-back and real, Hopkins is for you. We loved it. No paved roads, no road names, chickens, dogs, etc. Casita del Mar is a new house right on...More

About the neighbourhood
Hopkins is a quaint and relatively quiet village. Week days you have the beach pretty much to yourself and on weekends you can anticipate more involvement with the locals as the village comes to life with music, drumming and local festivities. Our location is perfect, right on the beach and close to all the amenities and restaurants you could need within walking distance. Our neighbours are polite and respectful of your privacy but always ready to have a quick chat if you are interested. Watch the local fishermen leave in the morning as you have your coffee on the deck and decide what you would like to do for another busy day on the beach. Expect to hear the local roosters crowing and occasionally you will hear a honk from the Main Street announcing the arrival of the weekly pork deliv... more
