Property type condo

About the property

2 condos (2 Bedrooms, 3 Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths each condo) (Sleeps 20

This is a new house (2010) and no expenses were spared.

Fly into Belize city, rent a car, and drive to our place on the beautiful Hummingbird Highway during daylight - about 2 1/2 hours, great sightseeing of the land. Or take an island hopper plane, Maya Air or Tropic Air, to Dangriga. We can arrange for a taxi to pick you up in Dangriga.

This listing is for the whole house, which consists of 2 floors. Each floor has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2 kitchens.


Each floor has a large bedroom suite, with a canopy bed, on one end, and a studio unit on the other end. All beds are king size, and have a pillow top mattress.

The middle section on each floor includes a living room, dining area, bar counter, large and fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher.

The spacious studio bedroom has a sitting area, dining area, it's own fully equipped kitchen, and private bathroom with a large walk-in shower.

There are ironing boards, irons, blow dryers, and everything needed to make your stay comfortable.

The condos feature ten-foot ceilings, glass doors, and windows to give ample views of the sea from every room. There are also tile floors throughout, including decks and terraces. All furnishings are locally crafted mahogany furniture.

The condo sits about 100 feet (30+ meters) from the water's edge. The water has a very gradual slope going out to the sea, so it's great for children.

There are three, 2-person kayaks and bicycles for guests to use at their leisure. You can kayak from our canal, up the beautiful Sittee River.

There is also a palapa (thatched roof open structure) which is 30 feet (9 meters) from the waters edge, where you can enjoy a hammock or sit on a beach chair.

We also offer a cook if you are looking for some authentic meals cooked right at the house. Please inquire.

Belize hotel tax 9% added to each reservation.

We require a 50% deposit to secure the reservation and the balance is due 30 days prior to arrival.

About Kotsaftis Associates

We bought the property in 2006 and finished the house (2 condos), in May 2010.

Our 4 children love the area, beach, river, jungle and environment. It's common to see big Iguanas, coatimundi, (long tailed, cute, in raccoon family) lizards, colorful birds, and fruit you've never tasted before.

The biggest draw was the beach, and the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world. Ten miles from your beach to the sea is gorgeous snorkeling, and fishing. The main reef is about 12 miles from shore, with sport fishing, scuba diving, whale watching, etc.

Famous for it's friendliness is the village of Hopkins. They all have a smile on their face, you never meet a stranger, and it's safe to walk the streets at night.

The restaurants have great, very reasonably priced food. Fresh fish is available daily at many of the restaurants. Lobster is available except Feb 15 - June 15.

Truly an adventure you'll never forget. Many have said that it's the best vacation they have ever had. We have the best drinking


in the country

Beautiful house, beautiful beach, accommodating home owner

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location, with a great beach and in excellent condition. The yard is well maintained and the house has everything you need! We stayed 8 nights and enjoyed every moment!

The water slopes gradually so it's great for kids and snorkeling. Plenty of shade around and hammocks for relaxing. We used the kayaks several times. There were life jackets and sand toys, bikes and kayaks, beach towels and a well stocked kitchen for cooking.

We hired the chef to cook an authentic Belizean meal one of the nights and it was a great experience!

Sherry, the owner of the house, checked in with us often to make sure we had everything we needed. She was available before our arrival to answer questions and gave us great driving directions from Belize City. She made the vacation easy and pleasant!

We plan to stay here again next time we visit Belize!

perfect home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Christmas vacation with family in this huge house. There were 6 adults and 9 kids so we had the whole place to ourselves and there was plenty of room. We spent our first day there just hanging out on the beach and the kayaks and hammocks got a lot of use. We were the only people around up and down the whole beach so it felt like a real get away. They have made some updates since these pictures were taken, walkway outside and some nice landscaping and a paint job. Overall, we were thrilled to be there and couldn't have asked for a better place.

Incredible. Like a dream in paradise

  • 5 of 5

A dream in paradise! Walk down the majestic stairs to the softest sand into the bath water pristine sea. Walk on your undiscovered private beach or use the kayaks to wander on glass water to explore,. The beautiful house is well equipped for modern comfort accented with local art. The jungle view from the kitchen and the beach from the back views are unlike any place we have seen after traveling 40 countries . The charming hostess is available to guide you to the nearby quaint village full of food delights and delicious food. We'll be back!!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this unit twice, both times renting out the entire top floor. Most recently our family of 4 stayed on one side and parents on the other. It was perfect! It's a safe area for the kids to run and play or morning walks on the beach. One of the only places in the world you can rent ocean front and have an unobstructed view without tourists in your yard or the ocean full of recreational boats etc. it was purely peaceful. We truly loved our time here.

It's our favorite place to stay and we will continue to come back again and again. Everything is easy here. Thank you so much for hosting us a memorable trip!!

This property is even more beautiful in person than shown online! My family was extremely impressed with everything about the property; space, location, private beach, kayaks, bbq grills, etc! Would definitely love to stay here again. Our caretaker Eloy was also very helpful. Thanks for everything! Hope to see you again in the near future!
