Habaru House is a terrific home base for all your Belize adventures. Ideal for families, a gentle sloping beach with little or no walk by traffic on the beach. We are located on one of the nicest beaches in then country. Enjoy the beautiful oceanfront from the white sand beach or second floor-covered patio with its exotic cane ceiling. On the beach for your use are beach chairs under a Mayan palapa, a lazy day hammock, and an outside charcoal grill.
South of the Village of Hopkins proper the Habaru House is 12-20 minute walk to 10 outstanding oceanfront restaurants and several road side eateries. I call this area “South Hopkins”. Email me for a 'map of Doug’s favorites'. The Village of Hopkins proper is a short bicycle ride away on one of our owner supplied bicycles or rent a golf cart from us.
An cell phone is provided. Additional minutes can be purchased at Diversity Cafe.
The Habaru House living area is on the second and third floor (see floor plans in picture area). Local artwork and wall hangings enhance the atmosphere. If you choose to cook in you will enjoy the fully equipped kitchen with mahogany cabinets adjacent to the dining and living areas. Or have our housekeeper cook for you- she is an independent contractor.
The Habaru House also has a Deluxe ground floor Apartment for 2, Habaru 31G (VRBO.com/455442); Rented separately. The deluxe one bedroom unit is connected with an internal lockable stairwell and maybe rented in addition to the Habaru House for expanding the total capacity of the rental.
