Property description

AmayanHeaven is an incredible ocean-front home in the beautiful small Garifuna fishing village of Hopkins - about 2 1/2 hours by car from the Belize City airport. Hopkins' proud traditions, sandy beaches, gently swaying coconut palms, and cool Caribbean breezes, will ensure an unforgettable vacation experience.

As English is the primary language spoken, you can fully enjoy the warmth and kindness of the local people, who are always welcoming and generous.

Construction of the 'The White House', as it is referred to locally, was completed in 2009. Appointed with rich mahogany cabinetry, cabbage-bark hardwood flooring throughout, stainless steel appliances in the gorgeous chef's kitchen, private king-sized beds, and authentic hardwood furniture, The White House is sure to cure you of any stresses of everyday life.

Paradise is sitting on the private front veranda looking out over the sea, or relaxing on the roof to catch the full effect of the sea breeze and take advantage of the higher vantage point for views of the village and even the Cayes a few miles out on the reef. The property abounds with producing banana and mango trees and yellow and green coconut trees soon to be ready to reap as well. Sit back and have a drink, enjoy the white sandy beach which flows into the sparkling blue ocean, or plunge head first into the adventures that surround you in this Caribbean paradise!

Hopkins is a Garifuna village on the coast of the Stann Creek District in Belize. Hopkins is considered by some Belizeans to be the cultural center of the Garifuna population in Belize. The town hosts its own national holiday, Hopkins Day, and welcomes people for their celebration on Garifuna Independence Day as well, they do this with drum ceremonies that can last till early hours in the morning.

The village is separated into two parts; the Northside (Baila) and the Southside (False Sittee). Hopkins is surrounded by the Maya Mountains and the Cockscomb Range inland, and the Caribbean Sea on its shore. The village was created in 1942 to replace the village of Newtown, which was devastated by a hurricane further up the coast.

Today Hopkins is a small but vibrant community of approximately 1,000 villagers. The people live mostly by farming and fishing, and more recently many have found work in the growing tourist industry. The residents are known for their friendliness and genuine hospitality, and welcome visitors to their village. Hopkins has a selection of gift shops, restaurants and small bars. Hopkins was recently voted 'The Friendliest Village in Belize' by Belize First Magazine.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: After a trip through Belize in 2001, riding the buses, sleeping in hostels and B&B's, we were immediately taken by the unparalleled beauty of the country and the the honest friendliness of the Belizean people - especially the locals we met while traveling through the village of Hopkins. It truly was an awe-inspiring experience that convinced us that this country was a place we wanted to be a part of.

Why the Owner Chose Hopkins:
The geographical diversity of Belize has to be seen to be believed. Full-on overgrown jungles, dry barren semi-arid areas, lagoons teeming with flora and fauna, white sand beaches, the largest network of underground caves in the world, and one of the top-ranked dive and snorkel reefs in the world. To have a home here, especially in one of the friendliest, most beautiful communities in the country, is a dream come true.
