The Hibiscus Cabana , which sits between two vacant lots on the North & South and a vacant lot behind, is more like a house than a cabana. The two HUGE master suites measure approx. 15'x20' and each contains a 6 ft. mahogany closet for your convenience. The 1st Master contains a queen size bed and a queen size hide-a-bed with a master bathroom attached with a 4 ft. ceramic shower. The 2nd Master contains a full size bed and 2 twin beds with a ceramic shower and bathroom located in the common area. The 2nd Master also has a sitting area with two chairs and a reading light. Both bedrooms and the living room have ceiling fans & a wonderful view of the Caribbean as we are RIGHT ON THE BEACH. The ceramic flooring throughout the cabana ties everything together in a cozy friendly atmosphere. The kitchen boasts of a full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker & toaster. You will have full use of all kitchen dishware, pots & pans, cutlery, etc. as well as all towels & bed linens. Everything you need to step in and begin your wonderful Caribbean vacation in paradise. With 1,350 sq.ft. of living space, this is more like a house than a cabana. The cabana has a kitchen table & chairs that can accommodate 6 people easily. There is a futon, side chair and end and side tables in the living room. There is an outside shower for rinsing off after a dip in the sea and a 'prayer bench' in the back yard for quiet meditation among the beautiful hibiscus, bougainvillea and tropical greenery. Bicycle, golf cart, motorcycle and car rentals are available within walking distance of the cabana. Car rentals also available in Dangriga. I must say again, the beach here is one of the best in the area. It is sandy bottom with a gentle slope so you can walk along the sea edge in knee deep water or go 20 - 30 ft. out and be in chest deep water so you can swim. This location affords the best of 'Both Worlds' when vacationing. You are right on the beach and only 15 minutes from the jungle, and within driving distance of the Mayan Ruins, & 3 miles from the Sittee River/Marina & wildlife.

The Caribbean is home to dolphins, manate, starfish, & colorful exotic fish. The beautiful clear blue water invites you to swim, snorkel and scuba or relax and gaze at the rhythmic ebb and flow of the Caribbean. You are invited to relax in the adirondeck deck chairs with your favorite book at your leisure. Since you are only 30 feet from the edge of the sea, you can spend hours watching the 'Magnificent Frigates', pelicans and seagulls cruise up and down the beach looking for a tasty little minnow for lunch. The local Garifuna guides will be happy to show you the second largest barrier reef in the World and the many other attractions throughout Belize. The weather in Belize is of a subtropical nature so you can expect the weather to be warm. Hopkins Village also has earned bragging rights as being able to offer a wide variety of activities. Belize has a wide variety of birds, wildlife & marine life. You must not forget, we are part of the Rain Forest and boating down the Sittee River, day or night can afford sights of alligators, tropical birds including toucans and parrots and of course the snakes and monkeys. You can try your hand at wind surfing with rental & lessons available right down the beach. Explore the many Mayan ruin sites available where you can drive to and explore within a day. Hike through the Mayan Mountains that are part of the Rain Forest of Belize and swim in a clear cool mountain pool at the bottom of a waterfall. Brag about ziplining t the Mayflower Park or visit the only Jaguar Reserve in the World all within easy driving of Hopkins Village. Don't forget to visit the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere. Whether you want to snorkel or scuba , the colorful fish and beautiful reef is something you don't want to miss. We can arrange for a half day or full day of fishing on the reef where your guide will provide everything you need to catch 'The Big One' so you can brag about to your friends at home. Whatever adventure you decide to choose, our friendly and knowledgeable property manager can connect you with local Belizean guides to make sure you will never forget your vacation in paradise. Hopkins has a reputation of being a very friendly and quaint little fishing village. You will feel at home strolling down the beach, visiting the local shops and restaurants to sample some of the local cuisine. Be sure to visit the 'Druming Center' at the North end of the village where the local villagers are keeping the Garifuna Fishing village customs alive within the community. You may want to visit one of the beachfront bars and sample some of the local rum drinks. (Panty Ripper is one of my person favorites) or sample the Belize Beer. We are always happy to see new friendly faces and share new adventures with you.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: My husband and I are currently retired and living in Texas. He is a native Texan & I was born in Missouri. This pic was taken at Christmas in Belize.
Why the Owner Chose Hopkins: My husband & I purchased this property because it had EVERYTHING we wanted. Great 'All sand' lot, all sand sea floor, convenience to grocery, restaurants, etc. And of course, THE VIEW!! We can see the keys off the front veranda and look back and see the Mayan Mountains. Also, great rental income when we want to be with family & friends in the U.S.
The Unique Benefits at this House: When we first began looking at Belize, we wanted to make sure we would be happy or content with any purchase. We chose this property due to, 'Location, location, location', resale value, and the fact that it was wooden instead of concrete. We talked to several local expats. The concensus was concrete was too hot, expensive, and hard to cool. The concern about tropical storms washing wood away and leaving concrete was ridiculous. (Look at the wooden shacks still standing.) Hopkins is protected from severe tropical storms because of the reef, mountain range and bay effect. Also, we didn't want an atmosphere with a lot of nightlife. If we wanted that, we could just stay in the states.
