Looking for a different vacation experience?
Try our “ little house by the sea ” in Hopkins, Belize.
Casita Del Mar is located at the southern end of Hopkins Village right on the beach. Our two bedroom, one bath, non-smoking home sleeps 4 plus a full sized futon in the living room for 2 more.
It is minutes from restaurants, shopping and any of the amenities you will need to make your vacation easy and worry free.
The house has 750 square feet of living space with cathedral ceilings. It has a fully equipped kitchen (blender, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, stove/oven, full fridge), AC units and ceiling fans in both bedrooms, and fans in the open concept living/ kitchen area. Eat inside or dine al fresco, we have plenty of seating to meet your needs. All linens, including beach towels, are here for your convenience. Need to stay connected? The house does have WiFi. We also provide a house phone for guest use. For our guest safety, both bedrooms are equipped with smoke alarms.
Our location enjoys the quieter side of village life and our neighbours are friendly but keep to themselves. It is the village, however, so you can enjoy local Garifuna drumming on Monday evenings by just sitting on the porch. The weekend bustle of village life, while not intrusive, will keep you feeling part of the local lifestyle. You can expect a bit more foot traffic on the beach during the weekend and you may hear music coming from the town depending on local activities but all is generally quiet by 10:00 pm. And forget your alarm clocks, the local roosters are happy to oblige with morning wake-up calls. But if you need the reassurance of an alarm clock, there are two provided, one in each bedroom.
Nap in the hammocks, read a good book on the beach loungers or just float away your time in the warm waters along the best sandy beach in the Carribean! Everything in Hopkins is a short walking distance. Bike, golf-cart and motorcycle rentals are available nearby. Our house “information” book will give you lots of tips on places to eat, shop and things to do.
For the more adventuresome, there are exciting day tours you can arrange through our Property Manager, Mirko Bechstedt. Take a walk on the wild side and go ziplining, waterfall rappelling, cave tubing, snorkeling/diving, wind surfing, visit to ancient ruins and more! Hopkins has something for everyone.
Looking for a new fitness routine to counter balance those “Happy Hour” activities? Try our favourite, water wading along the sandbar, where you can walk in either direction.
Our committed and dedicated Property Managers, Mirko Bechstedt and Annett Wolff will take good care of you while you are staying at Casita Del Mar. Their business name, Like Home, says it all. If you need something, they are a phone call away. Mirko is both a registered agent with Tropic Air and a licensed tourist agent. See the tour information book in the house for the many services with which he can connect you.
We look forward to sharing our little piece of paradise with you!
