My husband, two best friends and myself all stayed at the Villa Rising Sun for my husband and I's 5 year anniversary and I am so happy we were able to find this hidden jewel. Mark and Sabrina are the best hosts. The place itself was so roomy and clean. The property manager went OVER AND BEYOND to accommodate us and taught us all about the places to eat and things to do in town! If you are looking for an amazing vacation THIS IS IT! WORTH EVERY DIME!I hope to come back soon.
Our family of five had the best vacation at Villa Rising Sun this week! The house is stunning and Mark has it stocked with everything you need and more!! He even included some drinks, fresh fruit and some local foods to try. He gave our family a great tour of Hopkins and gave us lots of recommendations for restaurants and things to do. The beach is beautiful and we loved taking the kayak out. Our favorite spot was the double decker dock! The hammock on the lower dock was the perfect reading spot and the top deck was awesome for watching sting rays, fish and manatees. It’s also the perfect spot for relaxing with a cup of coffee in the morning. This trip was a great memory maker!!! Thanks for sharing your home with us!
This house is amazing. The ac is great, it is steps from the shore with a private dock and in a very safe residential party of town. It is only a twenty minute walk on the beach to town, and several restaurants are only 2 minutes walk. The owners are great and can arrange any adventure tours for you!
We arrived at nighttime during our stay at the Villa Rising Sun and were immediately greeted by Mark. We were amazed at the location and accommodations during nighttime and were really looking forward to what daytime brought. The best way to describe waking up was that pictures do not do justice to how breathtaking this property is. On top of that, Mark and Sabrina could not have been more accommodating and full of information when it came to activities in the area. Hopkins is a special place that is a village family with everyone who's there. I truly do not believe we could have enjoyed Belize any more without staying at the Villa Rising Sun!
Traveled as 2 couples, had unfortunate weather but the owners and Mirko helped us enjoy our stay none the less. The Tiki bar was perfect for those rainy days as it was still comfortable and warm. The villa was well stocked and the owners, Mark and Sabrina were very generous and hospitable. They went above and beyond with assistance and information, but never obtrusive. We felt like we were alone staying with friends. Great location to all that Hopkins Bay has to offer, walked to many great restaurants. The Jeep rental was a necessity as the road system was pretty beat up by the unusual rain fall. Will plan to return and met many lovely local people.
We had the best time in Hopkins. The property owners, Mark & Sabrina showed us so much hospitality during our stay. We felt at home there. The property is beautiful and there was so much to do.
We recently celebrated my parents 50th wedding anniversary at Villa Rising Sun. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations. There were many highlights to our trip. One of them was owners Mark and Sabrina. They were the most gracious and amazing hosts I have ever had! Mirko, the property manager, was so helpful from the the initial booking of our trip to the very end as he saw us off the day we had to leave. He was accommodating and made booking all of our excursions so easy. We also had Shelly, a fantastic local chef, come in and cook dinners for us, I highly recommend that as well!
