Why Theala Jackson chose Stann Creek

I fell in love with the raw, untouched beauty of Belize and in 2009 decided to build a vacation home there. Because I live in the Cayman Islands surrounded by beautiful beaches, I wanted this home to be in the hills, tucked away with the feel of the jungle, and yet not removed from amenities and entertainment.

What makes this house unique

Hilltop House is a unique experience. It was created with much joy and thought given to every detail.

A palace above the jungle!

  • 5 of 5

Every detail is exquisite, from the cavernous center with the waterfall fed pool to the gourmet kitchen. The beds are extremely comfortable, the house is well stocked and having Polo, the host, on the property below, was very reassuring. They need to fix the long driveway and add gravel so you don't slide in the mud, but once that is done it will be considered absolutely perfect. Don't miss watching the fireflies on the lawn at night! It was a joy to come 'home' to this magical palace every night! We never figured out the WiFi but didn't try very hard so the kids (3 teenagers) had to play card games with us! The TV didn't work but again, we didn't try to fix that either! A dip in the pool capped off our evenings perfect. It was worth the little bit of drive to 'attractions' to stay in this amazing home. Don't miss the cave tubing. It is simply spectacular. Be careful with the local restaurants giving you 'water' that is not bottled! Don't drink anything with ice either! We all eventually got REALLY sick! Have a Belikin instead! Enjoy!

Owner's Response: I was so pleased to have my very first visitors not long after Hilltop House was listed. Will certainly heed advice on the section of driveway that is not paved and have already contacted the local service provider to ensure wifi is better accessed.

Beautiful home in the rainforest!

  • 5 of 5

This home was nothing short of spectacular. From the time of booking Thaela was punctual and on point with any questions.

Polo and Lucy were both very helpful!

This home is in my opinion the nicest home in all of Belize. No details were left out of this home. The deck and pool made for an amazing nightly experience.

The WiFi worked flawlessly and the driveway was totally fine for us in our SUV.

BOOK THIS PHENOMENAL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

I booked Hilltop House to celebrate my 30th birthday in Belize with my husband and three best friends, first week in June when the rains started. This was such a PERFECT getaway to come home to. We rented a regular SUV with Crystal and it's about a 2 hour drive to the house. Driveway is steep but we had no issues. Polo the groundskeeper is there if you need anything and Theala herself is only a message away if anything comes up. Pictures cant capture the beauty of the house because its just TOO LARGE to fit into pictures. Everything in the house is top end, the dishes, appliances, fixtures, all of it. House was immaculately clean. Wifi worked perfectly but also couldn't get the TV to work and we were okay with that since we had the pool and was exhausted each night anyway. Hopkins was 20 minutes away, Belmopan 45 minutes, & San Ignacio is a good 1.5 hrs for cave tours. It is in the jungle so we did have a lizard and spider get in the house and had a snake on the front door one night when taking out trash but we weren't afraid. There are tons of locks on the doors so you feel safe. The housekeeper arrived right on the dot to get the keys back for us to leave to the airport. If I come back to Belieze, the ONLY thing stopping me from booking Hilltop again is because I want to be on the Cayes. BOOK THIS HOUSE NOW!! Theres just too many fantastic things I can say about this property!!!

Perfect property

Amazing location, the property is so incredible I almost felt guilty staying there haha. The owner is wonderful, Polo is fantastic. If this place doesn't fulfill all your vacation fantasies, then nothing will.

Amazing and Spacious Property

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin - we absolutely loved this place! As is shown in the picture, it is located in the middle of the jungle; we really felt like we were in the jungle! This allowed us to go for hikes and enjoy the epic view from the patio. Additionally, one of the main reasons we chose this property is because it allowed for beach access (30 min to Dangriga, 45 min to Hopkins, 90 min to Placencia) but also allowed us to conveniently visit the western part of Belize and even into Guatemala. The Hummingbird Highway on which it is located is absolutely gorgeous.

While there are only two bedrooms, the house was larger and much more spacious than we had expected. Each bedroom was quite large and the A/C units in those rooms worked terrifically. The beds were very comfortable and the ceiling fans along with the other fans they had made it quite nice. Also, the house is sitting on 6 acres or so of land that made it feel even more magical.

The pool was awesome. The center of the home where the pool is has a ceiling 15-20 feet high. Our kids (6 and 4 years old) were constantly in the pool and loved every minute of it. There was a large dining room/table, a well-appointed kitchen, and of course a large patio as can be seen in the phots. That patio and the views from it are seriously magical. The sitting area was also huge and spacious; the house just feels grand!

Internet access was a huge must for us and the solution in place worked very well. The property had a Wi-Fi hot spot set-up and things worked quite smoothly. We were beyond pleased.

When we go to Belize again we will stay at this place without hesitation!
