Hopkins villa description

Wow the owners just reduced the price for New Year 2013. You should book this deal. This beautiful Villa is on its own private beach, arguably the best and longest beach in all of Belize. You can walk to native restaurants or play in the warm waters of the Caribbean Ocean. THE FAMILY VILLA is located just minutes outside of the town of Hopkins, the 'friendliest village in Belize'.

The Villa was built in 2003 to host large families and groups of friends who wish to stay together to enjoy the treasures of Belize. This is truly an adventure vacation area; within two hours of the Villa you can reach the best of Belize’s activities, or just stay at your vacation home and enjoy your own private pier and beach activities.

The Family Villa is built on a double wide beach lot 100 feet from the water edge. It also has a private beach palapa (raisin club) and a private pier with its own 30 foot palapa. The raisin club is its own enclosed games area, ideal for a kids play zone…..right on the beach and away from the main house. We also have a 100 foot pier with a 30 foot palapa at the end. This is ideal for swimming, diving, fishing, snorkeling or just plain sun tanning. The extra large lot, the raisin club, the private pier and palapa make the Family Villa uniquely “one of a kind” in Hopkins.

The large open air pier palapa extends 130 feet into the water. The private pier palapa is where you will spend most of your time; morning coffees, all day water/beach playing and evening cocktails. Evening star gazing from the pier provides your own unique getaway, personal to The Family Villa.

The beach is ideal for water activities for people of all ages, as it has a smooth sandy shore and bottom. The sea bottom slopes gradually and you can walk over 100 feet from shore before you are over your head. The ocean is perfect for hours of water volleyball.

The Villa has 4 private bedrooms. The master bedroom is on the second floor with its own king size bed, bathroom and sitting area opening up to its own second floor veranda overlooking the ocean. The second bedroom is also on the second floor, has two queen size beds, its own private bathroom and opens up to the second floor veranda. The third room is on the main floor, has a queen size bed, its own bathroom and French doors providing a grand opening to the sea. The fourth bedroom also on the main floor has a queen size bed and shares the main floor bathroom. Each room has its own air conditioning and ceiling fan allowing 10 people to spleep very comfortably.

The main floor has a large entertaining area and a fully equipped kitchen, ideal for chilling out or hosting a large gathering.

Concierge Services;
Personal gardener grooms the beach, waters and trims the mature garden once a week. This assures you will have the nicest beach experience possible.

Customized spray program. We have established an eco-friendly spray program to assure our Villa is the most comfortable in the area.

It is highly recommended that you enjoy the local Garifuna cuisine while in Hopkins. You are within walking distance of some of the best restaurants in Hopkins or if you wish our concierge can have a cook come to prepare your meals in our kitchen (extra charge for the cook).

Golf carts are the most convenient way to travel around Hopkins. They are available on a daily or weekly basis and will be delivered directly to the house for your convenience (extra charge for the cart).

If you didn’t want to walk the beach or drive your golf into town, there are bicycle rental shops in town.

Our relationship with the resorts in Hopkins allows you easy access to help plan tours, help with babysitters, and generally answer any questions you may have about Belize.

              Location

              The most unique aspect of The Family Villa is personal access to our own private pier with palapa. Our pier is the only private pier in Hopkins, the 4 others are attached to Village resorts. Morning coffees, afternoon swiming and water play to evening nightcaps under the stars......all are better on your own private palapa pier.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: Our family has been travelling to Belize for many years now, but purchased our own villa in 2007 in Sittee Point just outside of the town of Hopkins. Since then we have travelled down as much as possible including a trip this past Christmas with our entire extended family of 19. It was such a relaxing yet exciting time as we toured around showing everyone what the area had to offer. Some of us ziplined, others took a Cave Tubing Tour and many others just put their feet up in the palapa on the beach in front of our villa to enjoy the splashing of the waves and the sunshine. The villa catered perfectly to everyone in our group from the age of 4 to 74! We created truly unforgettable memories.

              Why the Owner Chose Hopkins:
              We chose Belize because we have always enjoyed the friendly people, amazing scenery and unlimited activities. We chose this location in particular due to it's proximity to the warm waters of Belize and the second largest barrier reef in the world. Stretching for miles, it beckons you to snorkel, dive, fish, fly fish, bird watch or just float in its clear blue waters. Our coastal waters boast the famous Blue Hole and coral atolls. The local ammentities including grocery stores, restaurants and local entertainment are only a short walk away. The trip down from Dangriga is convenient and the weather is beautful. What more could we ask for?!

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              The Family Villa offers a private beach that extends from the waters edge to the villa's veranda that provides privacy as well as a great place to start a long walk or a beach game. If total relaxation is what you are looking for a transfer from the airport, a Maid service, and a cook can be arranged for an additional fee. If you prefer to be your own chef, the villa offers a fully equiped kitchen for your convenience as well as many local restaurants that have delicious food on offer. During your stay you will often find local fisherman that will sell you their fresh catch from their boat for an extra special meal! The villa sleeps up to 10 adults as an entire villa or can be rented by the room. Please see our website for further details and pricing.
