On the beach with a wonderful breeze and surrounded by tropical foliage.
This is the perfect vacation from a big city. Pam and Steve were wonderful, and the property was exactly as promised. Wake up to the sound of the waves a few steps from your door, feel the ocean breeze in your bed, have your coffee on the beach and then take a day trip to one of the cayes, the ruins or the forest.
Fantastic Place to Escape and Relax
Pam and Steve have built an awesome retreat for those wanting to get off the beaten path and enjoy the beauty of southern Belize. The "Hairy Hut" is spacious, clean and outfitted with all the modern amenities you'd expect in a vacation home. The house is tastefully decorated exactly how a rustic beachside hideaway should be, and the views from the house are second to none.
Seine Bight is a small town about halfway between Maya Beach to the north and Placencia to the south. Vern's restaurant is a short walk from the house and serves some awesome Belizean food, don't miss the breakfast! There's a couple of convenience stores within walking distance as well as a few other restaurants. Placencia is where the local activity is - be it diving, fishing or quaffing a few brews with ex-pats and locals at the many fine eating and drinking establishments. It is a warm and friendly town with plenty of things to do!
This is really a special place - from the breathtaking sunrise over the water every morning to the comfortable beds at night, I can't say I've ever stayed at such an appealing location in all my travels. We took our two 20-somethings down with us, and even for them it was early to rise and early to bed every day -- the TV stayed off the whole time which was quite a victory :-)
You'll find your hosts one of the nicest couples we've met, which greatly adds to a wonderful vacation experience. Thank you, Pam and Steve!
Beautiful Sunrise House
OMG the best! Right on the water, we watched the sunrise every morning.
Great stay and the owners are super nice! This home has all you need for a quick getaway. The beach was all ours and the water was soooo warm, we spent lots of time in the water. Very hot so bring lots of bathing suits...It was just beautiful! Yolanda & Simon
Nice property, 10 minute drive to Placencia
Just wanted to thank Steve and Pam for all the help they gave us during our stay in Belize. We couldn't have asked for a more memorable experience than the Hairy Hut had given us. Couldn't get closer to the water if we wanted to, and the Ocean breeze with the constant lapping of the waves made for the best sleeping we have ever experienced. Steve and Pam helped us with everything from cutting open a coconut and introducing us to Ladderball, to helping us find the best restaurants and excursions. Thanks for your hospitality and all the help you had given us.
The Hairy Hut is a beautiful place to stay
My sisters and I really enjoyed our visit to Belize. Pam and Steve really made our stay easy , we opted not to rent a car, and they graciously drove us where ever we needed or wanted to go. The ocean is at your doorstep, watch the sun rise early in the cool of morning or the full moon on a star filled night, all from the living room couch.
While we were there the wind blew much of the time keeping us cooler than we might have otherwise been. It was almost a constant 82 degrees, day and night. Cooling off in the pool next door was always a refreshing option.
We did a combination of eating out and cooking for ourselves. A grocery store is close, Pam and Steve had bikes we could use and the Hut has a full kitchen making cooking at home easy. The town of Siene Bight has a variety of local cuisine small places to eat while travelling just ten or fifteen minutes in either direction offers more upscale choices in Maya Beach or the Placencia village.
Booking Monkey River, Mayan Ruin tours or a snorkeling adventure was easy, accessible and proved to meet or exceed our expectations. We found the people of Belize to be friendly and diverse. We really enjoyed our stay at the Hairy Hut and would return in a heart beat!
Fantastic Property right on the beach!
Excellent property. Everything you need for a great beach vacation. Hut is right on the beach. Lots of chairs and loungers, hammocks too. All the windows and doors open to the beach. Pool next door is the perfect temperature and clean. Pier is great for happy hour. Kitchen has everything you need to make meals. Charcoal grill outside. Bathroom is big and has a gr at hot shower. Town is nearby, so having a car is helpful. We brought three teenagers here and they loved it!
