In front off the house there is a large tiled patio and a second, screened and covered, one to the side of the living room. There are two large vaulted bedrooms with king and queen beds and two washrooms complete with oversized showers.
There is a small dock on the river that is great for fishing off and a great spot to watch the sun set. In the winter months the river can be so smooth you can hardly tell where the River ends and the sky begins. There is a fishing rod for your use in the villa. You can buy shrimp at the grocery store for bait. We also have a canoe for our guest to use. You will be able to step out of your house into a canoe for an amazing ride at your leisure.
The villa is suitable for a great family get away or a quite couples retreat close to all the amenities that the area has to offer. If your a bird watcher this is the spot for you. We have a wide variety of birds visiting the property all the time. The local River guides sometimes use our lot to point out various trees and wildlife. If your a fisherman there is no better place to stay you can fish off the dock or take a canoe and fish any where on the river or in Anderson lagoon farther down River. We also have two bikes for your use.
We can have our property manager assist you making reservations for any excursion you want in Belize.
Come stay with us for an on forgettable vacation.
House was very comfortable and clean. Linens were clean and bathrooms were very tidy and well supplied with towels. Lovely deck and riverfront view.!! I would say the description of the house was quite accurate. We utilized the kitchen (which was well equipped) for several big dinners with our fresh fish and local veggies and fruit. Everything was working very well, no problems with the AC or ceiling fans, plenty of hot water. Washer and dryer worked perfect. Groundskeeper lived on the property and was very friendly and helpful. Property manager was available to give us numerous names and suggestions for diving operators and fishing guides. Towards the end of our stay a minor hurricane made landfall very close to the house. We felt very safe. The owner had contacted us as well as the property manager. The owner was concerned about our safety and stayed in contact with us. The storm passed overnight and there was no damage (concrete walls) to this very well built house. The village of Hopkins is just a couple of miles down the road and the marina is not more than a mile away. We explored the river with the canoe that was provided with the house. Great place to get away from it all. Very friendly folks in Hopkins and some really good local food if you take the time to check it out. Huge variety of activities to do in this area ranging from flyfishing, diving, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, hikes in nature preserves, cave trips, waterfalls, trips to ruins, etc. We always rent a car at the main airport and really enjoy the beautiful scenery that Belize has to offer. If you are not comfortable renting a car I am sure that you could arrange day trips with locals for a reasonable fee. Without a doubt would stay here again and recommend to others.

The house was amazing!!!!! The river view awesome and the house itself was everything we could have asked for!!!!!! Antonio was great and very helpful!!! The caretaker was a good as he could have been always on top of everything. He worked at keeping the grounds amazing!!! Thanks to all for an awesome vacation experience we loved every minute of it!!!!!!
The property was exactly as described. The kitchen had all the amenities, I don't think that we were lacking for anything. It was really nice to have the washer and dryer, especially after being caught in a rainstorm on the nearby mountain. The lizards in the tree across the river were great. Taking the canoe out for a ride is not to be missed. The caretaker also did an excellent job. The property is close enough to Hopkins for picking up groceries or going out for dinner. We especially enjoyed the Fiesta Restaurant in Hopkins, where the service was excellent and the food even better. Don't miss going to the Mayflower Bocawina National Park, which has awesome waterfalls. Another must is a trip to Red Bank to see the scarlet mcaws, if you are there between Jan and March - that was an awesome experience. The house was a great base for an awesome vacation.
