  • Great Family Vacation

    "This was our first trip to Belize. Having never been it's a little hard to decide where stay and didn't really know what to expect. We didn't want big crowds so we chose the Placencia penninsula. As a family of 5 we opt for house rentals instead of hotels. It was very easy to book with Ken and I couldn't have been happier with our choice. If you need 5 star resorts, this isn't the place. But if you want clean, affordable, well-equipped, and in a great location, this is perfect! Maya Beach turned out to be ideal because we could walk to the local store and a few restaurants. We had a rental car so it was an easy drive into Placencia and we were able to get to other activities like hiking in Cockscomb and cave tubing/ziplining. The home itself had everything we needed. The beach is kept clean and it was so quiet that we felt like we had the entire beach to ourselves. The porch isn't screened anymore and the kayaks next door are only available for rent and not included. There isn't much to see in the water off the beach but the water was so warm we just didn't mind. We went snorkeling out at Laughing Bird Caye one day. We had a few power outages from storms and the home didn't have any supplies for that but we were able to get a candle from a neighbor. The lightening storms were a show all by themselves! We were very happy with our stay and enjoyed a wonderful week of family time."

  • Paradise in Belize

    "Our family of 21 stayed in this incredible villa -- and it left nothing to be wished for! First of all, Luis and Liz, Managers, communicated with me for the 18 months prior to our stay to be sure we would have everything we wanted. The villa is beautiful, incredibly furnished, spacious...the pool is huge, and the ocean is just a few steps from the pool. The kayaks and catamaran and water boards are great for those who aren't hanging out in the hammocks. Luis hired a cooking staff and we had all meals on site - which were delicious and varied. We went on snorkeling adventures, touring, zip lining, and horseback riding. They found the best places for us. And they rented us two SUVs so we could drive around on our own. But you really didn't have to leave the Villa to enjoy your stay. Hopkins Village is fairly remote - but with the short flight from Belize City to Dangriga, then a Villa shuttle to the villa, it wasn't difficult - especially because everything was arranged and overseen by Luis and Liz. It was a fabulous trip."

  • Wonderful Tropical Getaway

    "Excellent time in Belize. It was our first visit and Epi and staff made us feel at home. Beautiful beach, pool and facilities. Went to Maya Center to learn how to make chocolate, Zip lining and Bio Luminescent Tour. Definitely need a 4 wheel drive. We rented a diesel pick up truck with standard transmission. If you don't know how to drive a standard you may be in for a surprise when you pick up your rental vehicle. Long drive to Sarkiki (about 3 hours from airport) and beautiful drive on Hummingbird Highway. There are no paved streets in Hopkins but adds to the Central American charm"

  • Awesome home!

    "We were a party of five including my husband, daughter, and another couple. The house was perfect. My daughter loved her loft room. The view is amazing! I think everyone napped in a hammock at least once! My husband said it was the best equipped rental he has seen. Everything we needed was there! The house was clean and had plenty of towels. My husband mentioned that he wished he had brought a fishing pole and the next morning, there was one on the balcony! Karen gave us some wonderful ideas for places to see and restaurants. I forgot the directions to the house and we were arriving at night. We saw two girls in front of a house (one with a lamb on a leash!) and asked if they knew Mary or Karen from New York--she took us directly to the house! We visited three different cities, but I would definitely use the Hopkins house as a home base and take day trips from there next time! There are Mayan ruins, a Spice Farm, ziplining and the Marie Sharpe hot sauce factory nearby. We went to see the bioluminescence and hunt alligators and fishing. You won't regret renting this house! You will miss it when it's time to go home! Thank you for sharing it with us!"
