This place is like home. There are always new and friendly people that stay there. Tricia is a great cook , and you must ask her to make her home made pizza. You are right on the beach with many chairs and hammocks. Once you stay here you will want to return again.

This place is advertised all over town but is a really far walk down the road. Trish is nice but I think she's high most of the time. The rooms on the beach level looked like dungeons, so dark and musty. We stayed in the dorm room, also dark and dingy, not clean, had screens with holes. The place didn't... More

There is a rare retro motif resort nuzzled on the spectacular beaches at the north end of Hopkins Village. Its name is Kismet Inn and it is run by the wild and wooly businesswoman Tricia Wipfler. Kismet Inn is a psychedelic smorgasbord of hippie commune architecture, pastiche Peter Max flower-child wall murals, found object environmental art pieces reminiscent of the... More

Do not go there if you value cleanliness most ... But if You are looking for family atmosphere and good vegetarian meals - its a nice place to visit. Also do not look for usual hotel experience. If you are open minded traveler I recommend going there.

Ok guys so this is how it works, this place is full of personality each room looks different and has his own style. If you like clean tidy places, central and all the casual this place is not for you. If you are a bit open minded looking for a beautiful place right on the water in good prices you... More

When we arrived we... More

This place is the best advertised place around. Signs are everywhere. So I walked all the way up north to the end of the village (felt like a mile). I was greeted by a big sign that sayed "open". And three dogs. But there was no-one around. I waited for an hour and some kids came around to just tell... More

Trish is a very spirited, lively person and a great cook. It is more like hanging around with friends than just staying at a business. She lent out her canoe so we could go for a paddle in the mangroves and there was a bike to use too. The only negative I have to say is the sand flies were... More

If you're looking for a rustic beach bungalow stay with the basics, this is the place. Decent room with a decent bed, and an attached bathroom with a toilet and sink. But there is no hot water, and the only shower is outside attached to the house (it's very private, so no worries there, but again, no hot water). The... More
