1 BR Cabana for rent on Beachfront Lot with Sea Views, Hopkins, Bel
- english, german
About Mirko Bechstedt
Baby Blue Cabana was built in 2014 in the lot behind our beachfront Blue Moon Cabana. We put our hearts and souls into the cabana and wanted to build a place 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 Baby Blue and 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. Hopkins has a rich cultural life --and traditional Garifuna life is evident throughout the village.
What makes this Cabin unique
Baby Blue 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 steps from the sea and enjoys fabulous breezes directly from the sea. 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, there are so many adventures to enjoy in and around the village.

Mirko was communicative and met me for both check in and check out. The cabana is small but spacious and really had everything I needed for my stay. I loved my little porch and I could see the ocean despite having a larger cabana in front of me. Do Not overpack as you do need to carry your luggage over sand about 100 yards to get to your little vacation home. This was the neatest property among a beach full of cabanas as it was kept raked and free of ocean detritus/garbage. Hopkins is a small community without boutiques or shopping but perfect if you want to immerse yourself in a friendly-ish town, eat local cuisine and take long walks on thr beach! I rented a car so I was able to easily leave town for the day to explore. And yes, That rooster😂�. Ear plugs are provided for those light sleepers.
Ahnna, thank you so much.
Im glad you liked our little cabana, equipped with everything guests need.
Yes, we keep our property and public beach very clean, hopefully see you again.
Fun friendly little village
This place is perfect for two. Very clean and stocked with everything you need and a few convenient extras like a small cooler to take on your day’s adventure, yoga mats, extra towels for showers and beach, games and books. Property manager, Mirko was very nice and helpful and took time to make suggestions/answer our questions. The location is very close to bars, restaurants and grocery’s. But what comes along with such convenience, is noise. Loud late night music from the bar behind the cabana and some neighborhood roosters crowing were consistent during our 4 night stay so heads up if you are a light sleeper.
Thanks Sarah, we are glad you ejoyed the Baby Blue Cabana with all the ameneties.
Our property description on our website, VRBO, Airbnb and Tripadvisor tells our guest that we are located in the village and that we have of course restaurants, bars, grocery store, dogs, chickens, roosters and so on. The village is not for everyone, thats why we have resorts outside of the village.
We dont hide any informations about our loaction and surroundings.
Great location,good price,clean house and beach, everything we wanted
Thank you, hopefully see you again.
Loved this cabana and the location in Hopkins
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, you are more then welcome.
Im glad you enjoyed Baby Blue Cabana and our great service we provide.
In the heart of the village yet on the beach
The cabana was great for two people and the small kitchen was equipped with just about anything you’d need if you chose not to dine out (we ate out but enjoyed having coffee on the deck in the morning and cold beers in the evening).
There is a larger cabana in front of this one but you can still see the ocean and catch the ocean breezes. Luckily the cabin came with earplugs - there is a loud rooster in the neighborhood who isn’t afraid to be vocal whenever it strikes him.
The location was great - walking distance to anything in Hopkins. The grocery store and many restaurants are within a few blocks. And if you have any questions, Mirko, the property manager is very responsive. He can also arrange tours and activities in the area.
The only reason I didn’t rate this 5 stars is because of that darn rooster. That’s not something that can be controlled but folks should know it can be a little loud.
Jennifer, thank you so much.
Sorry, but this is Hopkins Village and there are chickens and roosters, like you said, nothing we can to about it.
Hopefully see you again in Hopkins, Belize.
