Hopkins House Description

Jan’s Beach Cabana is nestled among palm trees on a quiet stretch of white sandy beach directly on the Caribbean Sea. Secluded, yet minutes from the shops and restaurants of the quaint Garifuna fishing village of Hopkins. Enjoy beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea to your East and the Maya Mountains to your West. Wake up to the sound of waves and tropical birds. Enjoy your coffee on the veranda overlooking the water and pristine cayes offshore. Be on the lookout for dolphins, manatees, pelicans, parrots, magnificent frigate birds, herons, ospreys and hummingbirds just outside your door.

House is painted in the colors of the Caribbean and decorated with local artwork. Designed with an open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, tile floors and ceiling fans, the cabana is surrounded by windows so you can enjoy the incredible Caribbean breezes and sounds of the sea. AC is not necessary but was installed in July 2016. However, for those who need AC the use of the unit is included in the rate. This beach house is perfect for two but can sleep 4. The bedroom has a king size bed and located in the living room is a full size futon. There is a modern tiled bathroom with a hot water shower and a modern kitchen with full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster, blender and coffee maker. High speed internet, 2 bicycles, beach chairs, chaises and beach toys are all included for your enjoyment. Golf cart and motorbike rentals are also available. Groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables can be bought in Hopkins Village.

Jan’s Beach Cabana is licensed by the Belize Tourism Board.

This can be your ultimate relaxing vacation. Enjoy the day sunning or reading in the beach chairs. Play in the beautiful shallow waters of the Caribbean. A 5 minute stroll will take you to the Sittee River Marina. Here you can rent kayaks, arrange for fishing and boat tours or simply enjoy great food and entertainment at the Curve Restaurant and Bar. Their full menu includes lobster and daily specials at reasonable prices with a great atmosphere.

Visit the restaurants, shops, spas and dive shops at the resorts just minutes away. Just a little further north, but still minutes away, visit the local shops and restaurants of Hopkins Village. Take a drumming lesson at the Garifuna Drumming Center in North Hopkins.

Your visit can also be the adventure of a lifetime. Snorkel or scuba dive the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world. Visit Glovers Atoll and the many pristine cayes located right off shore. If you are interested in hiking, ziplining, repelling, kayaking, tubing, bird and animal watching, the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and the Mayflower/Bocawina National Parks are close by. You can also visit Mayan Ruins, go caving, windsurfing and fishing.

Our manager Regina Simons can provide you with all the information you need to enjoy your stay. She can arrange transportation, tours, and adventures. Another option is to rent a car and enjoy the area on your own.

Great location for us active tourists

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Jan's Cabana! The home itself is roomy and comfortable. The location was a perfect fit for our interest in an active vacation, with swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, and food and cultural visits all nearby. One highlight was our time spent at Palmento Grove in Hopkins, cooking and drumming and learning about the Garifuna culture. Another was a visit from a friendly and curious manatee while we swam out front of the cabana.

Beautiful fully furnished cabana on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

jans is a very beautiful cabana which is well-maintained with a wonderful beach and beautiful sunrises! Regina and Peer do an excellent job of managing the cabana and are both so very pleasant and accommodating! Nice to have transportation while staying here as it is a ways from Hopkins Village, but so peaceful! Walking distance to Sittee River Marina.

paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Jan's Cabana two times now and love it. The only complaint we have is the bed is a bit hard but we got used to it. The wifi is not great but that was a complaint from several people in town. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay. The cabana is well equipped. We spent many hours in the warm ocean on the great floats provided.

All the People in town were incredibly friendly, and Peer and Regina made it so easy to get in and out. Very relaxing.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay at Jan's Beach Cabana. It was very clean and had everything you needed to cook if you wanted. We only ate breakfast there and occasionally heated up some leftovers as there is an abundance of inexpensive great restaurants in Hopkins. The internet was very reliable. The entry into the sea was gradual and had a nice sandy bottom. There wasn't any construction going on next door while we were there. I could see where it would be disruptive, but as is often the case, there is probably no way to predict for sure when the work will be going on. The owner did offer to try and move us if we felt it necessary. The sound of the sea was wonderful and we loved the location. We rented a car and spent most days exploring. It is a big bonus to have the Curve Bar and Restaurant/Marina around the corner with gasoline available. Plus you can book tours from there and the setting is beautiful. The people of Belize are some of the most friendly and helpful people we have met. Jan's Cabana is a good value too. We would definitely return!!

Building in Hopkins

  • 5 of 5

Hi would just like to comment on the couple who stayed in Hopkins during construction. It is a beautiful village & a growing one at that. It's unfortunate your review reflected on Jan's Cabana. We have stayed there numerous times & never felt unsafe. It's a lovely rental & would stay there anytime. As far as construction it does go on & quiet at night. Sorry you felt uneasy but if your goin to stay that secluded in an upcoming village expect not complete silence...
