Habaru House is a terrific home base for all your Belize adventures. Ideal for families, a gentle sloping beach with little or no walk by traffic. We are located on one of the nicest beaches in then country. Enjoy the beautiful oceanfront from the white sand beach or second floor-covered patio with its exotic cane ceiling. On the beach for your use are beach chairs under a Mayan palapa, a lazy day hammock, and an outside charcoal grill. South of the Village proper the Habaru House is 12-15 minute walk to outstanding oceanfront restaurants and several road side eateries in an area I call “south Hopkins”. Email me for a 'map of Doug’s favorites'. The Village proper is a short bicycle ride away on one of our owner supplied bicycles or rent a golf cart from us. The Habaru House living area is on the second and third floor (see floor plans in picture area). Local artwork and wall hangings enhance the atmosphere. If you choose to cook in you will enjoy the fully equipped kitchen with mahogany cabinets adjacent to the dining and living areas. Or have our housekeeper cook for you- she is an independent contractor.
The flooring in the living area is Italian marble; bedroom floors are barbajalote, all exterior and interior trim are Belize mahogany and vaulted ceilings a mixture of exotic hardwoods. Doors are hand made from local “poison wood”, known for its outstanding wood grain. The spacious master bedroom suite has exotic cane ceilings and a large master bathroom.
The Habaru House, Hopkins is centrally located to reach many of Belize’s exciting activities.

Habaru House is a great location from which to base all of your Belize adventures! We are about 2 hours away from Belize's famous cave tubing and zip-lining. About the same from Belize's best Mayan ruins. Local Birding and Wildlife tours can be arranged for privately or through the near by resorts. Habaru House is located just a short beach walk away from some of Hopkins best eateries. Best of all the beautiful Caribbean Ocean is only steps away from your back door.
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Saltwater fly fishing was the addiction that brought my family to Hopkins, Belize but it was the laid back atmosphere and warm, friendly people of Hopkins that made our decision to build a home an easy one.
Why the Owner Chose Hopkins: Hopkins was a natural choice for me. The flats are a quick panga ride away and the local restaurants are just down the beach. If you are looking for a relaxed, laid back town, Hopkins fits the bill perfectly.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Habaru House is set on a double lot for added privacy. The huge back deck is a perfect place for your morning coffee or gather with family and friends as you gaze over the Caribbean Sea. Many mornings you will find flocks of Green Parrots in the tree surrounding the house.
