San Ignacio cottage description
This budget-friendly rental is an ideal accommodation for those who want to be close to town and all of the area amenities and tourist attractions, but not in the middle of all the hustle and bustle.
The cottage is set in a traditional Belizean neighborhood, right off of the Bullet Tree Road, and it is a 10-15 minute walk into the heart of San Ignacio Town. There are many small stores, restaurants, and bars only a five-minute walk away.
It comes complete with a double-plus size bed (larger than a double, smaller than a queen) and overhead ceiling fan; small kitchenette, making it easy to cook meals and save some money; a full bathroom with shower and hot water; kitchen table and chairs; and a wonderful patio to sip your morning coffee on, bird watch, or view with amazement all of the lovely fireflies at night.
Eva’s Cottage is the perfect jumping off point to visit the many tourist attractions Belize has to offer, including nearby ruins, rivers, and archeological sites, or the whole country for that matter. We can help you arrange almost any tour, including ruins, cave tubing, kayaking, or horseback riding.
In addition, the owner lives on the premises and runs a very successful massage therapy business, something our lucky guests frequently take advantage of.
Small, indoor pets are welcome (in fact, the owner has two dogs and three cats of her own). Smoking is allowed on the patio. This is a self-sustaining cottage and housekeeping is not provided. Laundry services for your personal items are available at a local laundry service, which is just a five-minute walk away. For guests staying a week or more, your sheets and towels can be laundered once a week. All bedding, towels, and kitchen supplies/utensils are provided.
$50 USD per day/$350 USD per week
$300 USD per week for two week or more stays
$900 USD per month
4 night minimum stay required
One month maximum stay allowed (longer stays can be negotiated on a case by case basis, pending availability)

Eva's Cottage is clean, close to laundry, stores and restaurants. It is quiet and comfortable. The garden is well maintained and secure. Eva is very helpful, all you need to do is ask. We have enjoyed our stay here of 1 month and recommend it to everyone.

My stay in beautiful Belize was made even more amazing by my host Eva and the cottage. Sharon and Eva went above and beyond in advising me of many pitfalls for new tourists to Belize and provided valuable recommendations based on her extensive experience in living there for many years. The accommodations were simple but more than I could have asked for during my two week stay. Clean (spotless) and new it was far superior to any other accommodations I saw there for the price. The location was a very walk-able 15 minutes from the center of San Ignacio yet far away enough from the hustle and bustle of the city. Being fully fenced it created the perfect environment of security and peacefulness that I sought. If you’re looking for a true taste of San Ignacio, Belize without all the expensive "touristy" frills this is the place to stay!

We stayed at Eva's for 16 days. A wonderful little cottage towards the back of the owner's large lot with empty lots behind and on one side and a lovely church on the other side- so it's very quiet. We loved sitting on the front veranda in the morning and evening and listening to the many birds. The location is great- you can walk into town or walk down to the main road and hail a taxi, or call your favourite taxi to come pick you up! Having internet right in the cottage is wonderful! The kitchenette is small but quite adequate- it's amazing what you can cook on a hotplate. But then again there are so many wonderful and economical places to eat nearby that you don't often need to cook a full meal. Be sure to go to Hot Taco's which is close by on Bullet Tree road!! Hanna's in the center of town is another favourite as is The Corner Diner in town across from David's SuperStore. The owner Eva is a lovely lady- and an amazing Massage Therapist!! One last thing- if you are fair skinned you will be fair game for the biting insects (you don't see them, but they do let you know they've munched on you) Applying Avon Skin-so-soft often will ward them off but you likely still will get bitten so bring Tea Tree Oil to apply directly to the bites- it really settles the itch and inflammation.

I have struggled to find the words that describe our experience staying at Eva's cottage. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with smiles and gracious greetings. The location of cottage was set back on the back of Eva's property and provided a relaxed setting with a porch to hang out on and plan or relax the day away. The mornings were filled with the vocal calls of local birds but just enough distance from down town not be drowned out by vehicles coming and going. The cottage is perfect for two. The room spacious and the bed comfortable and clean, a nice little fridge to keep local juice and fruit cold until next morning’s breakfast also two electric burners to heat up something for a day of exploring. There is a even WIFI for keeping touch with people back home or posting photos of your day on Facebook. Eva was a consummate host. She was so gracious to us and fun to converse with I wish we had more time to hang out and get to know her better. Next time we go back to San Ignacio we will be staying here again. Thanks Eva & Sharon.
