Property description

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 on the beach. 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 of Hopkins proper the Habaru House is 12-20 minute walk to 10 outstanding oceanfront restaurants and several road side eateries. I call this area “South Hopkins”. Email me for a 'map of Doug’s favorites'. The Village of Hopkins 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.

The fishing is wonderful! If fresh lobster and conch are something you are looking for, you have come to the right place! Best restaurants in Belize. Or go into the village and eat at one of the local restaurants and enjoy a local cultural “Garifuna” dish.


The 4-bedroom house has a second level common reading area with a queen size pull out sofa that can accommodate 2 people in the winter season. This home features all of the comforts of home; flat screen TV, cd player, iPod player, appliances, reading materials.We have dust to dawn neighborhood security. You will not be roughing it on this Belize adventure! Check out the photos.

A full time crew maintains our properties. They rake the beaches, arrange for the kayaks, and handle any of your concerns. Just ask!! We also have a river side property Bocatura Bank , nature preserve, that you are welcome to visit and kayak the river. Co-ordiante with Anthony and Gil. see VRBO 464737 for an overview.

The Habaru House also has a ground floor apartment Habaru 31 G (VRBO 45542). The one bedroom unit is connected with an internal lockable stairwell and maybe rented in addition to the Habaru House for expanding the total capacity of the rental.

How to get here: Major airlines fly into Belize International Airport (BZE). From there you have two options: rent a car and drive down to Hopkins or take one of the regional carriers (Tropic Air or Maya Air) to the Dangriga Airport where we can arrange to pick you up.

Let us help you have a vacation to remember!

Location

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.

 

Owner info

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, Belize:
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.
