Having looked at some of the previous reviews, I'm not sure I can add anything new, but I can reinforce the message that Kate and Ian's place is really special. We were there while the celebration of the life of Paul Nabor was happening, which made it even more so. The concerts for Paul Nabor, plus his funeral, and the... More

I stayed with Ian and Kate at the end of June for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. It has a lovely garden, with local plants named. Very quiet. The food was delicious, prepared by Kate. Ian is a wealth of knowledge on the local Garifuna culture and the PG community. Don't hesitate to ask them for advice on... More

A really pleasant surprise. The personal touch was second to none. We weren't sure what to expect when we were the only guests. Ian and Kate felt like friends by the end of the first evening. Their stories of life in PG and Ian's passion for insects and wildlife are captivating. Look up Spartacus, the howler monkey they rescued on... More

We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite last month and couldn't be more enthusiastic about recommending this place. Kate was extremely helpful with our initial booking arrangements, including getting there from Belize City, and made some great suggestions for how to make the most of our time in Toledo tailored around our interests and travel style. Her meals were all delicious... More

We stayed here one night while visiting Punta Gorda and the Ixcacao Chocolate Factory. The rooms are very clean and the screens are top notch to keep the critters out of your room. The place runs on batteries and solar, so no AC, no TV, and no distractions to the beautiful surroundings. Except that they provide free wifi, however they... More

My wife and I spent two wonderful nights at Hickatee, where the morning coffee and complimentary breakfasts were a delight, as was the cooked breakfast we had one morning and the dinners. Both Kate and Ian made us feel at home, and never rushed when answering one of our many questions about their lodge, or the PG area in general.... More

I stayed at Hickatee last weekend and it was a great experience. Thank you Ian and Kate for you hospitality! You have such a beautiful place and it was great to be in the middle of the jungle, lying in bed in my little cottage and hearing the Howler Monkeys in the distance. What other place can offer that?

Ian and Kate are wonderful! The main building and cottages are so well-done, but the main attraction is the hiking trails they have on the property. You're right in the jungle! I'll never forget the sound of the howler monkeys. Really amazing.

What a wonderful place! We were at Hickatee for three nights, having stayed in other parts of Belize and it was the very best accommodation we had experienced, and we had stayed in some nice places! It is a small (6 rooms), but a very special place to stay. The bungalows are well spaced out in the beautifully landscaped area... More

We really cannot praise Hickatee highly enough. The cottages themselves are lovely inside and out, and the grounds — cultivated spaces at the core, untamed jungle beyond — are beautiful and bursting with plant, animal, and, yes, insect life. The food, too, is fantastic — freshly baked bread and muffins for breakfast; coffee brought to your doorstep in the morning.... What makes... More
