About Mirko Bechstedt
Blue Moon Cabana was built in July/August 2011 after several years of planning and hard work to make it happen. We put our hearts and souls into the cabana and wanted to build a home that fit with the culture of Hopkins. It was important to us to create a space that was comfortable and included all the things we would want ourselves in a rental cabana in Belize. We are not into the resort experience and value the local culture and people of Hopkins. We leave the resort-type experience to the places south of the village. Mirko, who lives nearby Blue Moon Cabana is available to assist guests with all their needs during their stay, including transfer to and from the airport (and other locations) and arranging tours and other adventures for guests.

Why Mirko Bechstedt chose Hopkins
Hopkins is a laid back village with beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea and Maya Mountains on the other side. We chose a beachfront lot in the village because we wanted to be central to everything, including the beautiful people in the village. Hopkins has a rich cultural life --and traditional Garifuna life is evident throughout the village.
What makes this House unique
Blue Moon Cabana is centrally located in the village which allows us to soak up the rich cultural life of the village. Local restaurants and other popular establishments are within walking distance from the cabana, but guests can also rent bicycles to get around, too. The cabana itself is high off the ground and steps from the sea --and since the cabana has lots of windows, there are usually fabulous breezes flowing throughout the house. The views from the veranda are stunning! Hopkins is a great base to enjoy day and half-day trips to the jungle, mountains, and cayes. In addition to relaxing on the veranda or on the beach in front of the cabana, there are so many adventures to enjoy in and around the village.

Rustic cabana Suited our vibe! All amenities excellent! Fabulous beach ! Perfect ocean vista!
Loud dance party close by until 4am on 2nd night but noise reduction headphones were salvation . Roosters and barking dogs all ok for us but might bother some. Great location to walk to restaurants or down the beach!
Thanks for the great review. Hopkins can be a lively town, but that's definitely part of it's charm!
Loved this cabana and the location in Hopkins
LOVED this cabana with it's beach location, shaded veranda, and the sound of the waves and the sea. We especially enjoyed the veranda and spent many hours talking and reading while listening and watching the waves. We loved being in the village of Hopkins, enjoyed the local restaurants and the local culture. The cabana was super clean, Mirko was very helpful, reviewed everything with us, and was available if we needed him!
Thank you Linda.
Yes, the porch is the most loved place at Blue Moon Cabana, its just perfect to watch the beach and the waves. I hope we see you again, here in Hopkins, Village.
Great stay at the Blue Moon Cabana
The Blue Moon Cabana is a lovely place to stay for a vacation in Hopkins. We enjoyed being able to walk everywhere including out the door and into the ocean. The Cabana itself is great- comfortable, with all the amenities you need, reliable wifi, and a delightful veranda to enjoy for meals, games, reading, etc. We would definitely recommend Blue Moon as the place to stay in Hopkins.
Thank you so much for the kind words and great review. We look forward to seeing you again very soon!
3 days in paradise
This cabana offers unobstructed views of the sea along with the sound of waves that can be heard day and night. It is centrally located in Hopkins - walking distance to many excellent places to eat. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a laid back trip to enjoy the local Garifuna culture.
Hi Carol, Thank you so much.
We are happy you guys enjoyed Hopkins Village and Blue Moon Cabana, hopefully see you back one day.
Cottage on the beach
Great location within a stones throw of restaurants and the Main Street. The breeze from the ocean keeps the place cool, so no A/C was not an issue. Clean, rustic charm.
Thank you Tania, glad you had a good time.
Hopefully see you again in Hopkins and Blue Moon Cabana.
