“A Home Away From Home!”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A family of 3, including a teenager, loved everything about this place. Excellent location right on the beach, within walking distance to the stores, restaurants & places to have a quiet drink. The property is well equipped, clean & tidy with all amenities at ones disposal. Mirko did a great job from start to finish. We tested his resolve with some very last minute requests but he never failed to deliver. We even used Mirko to arrange our transfers to/from BZE International Airport, as well as for arranging the Maya Ruin & Private Snorkeling Tours. He truly is the one stop shop! I would recommend renting the Golf Cart to get around Hopkins. There's plenty to see both North and South in Hopkins. The Hopkins residents are very warm, friendly and the most laid back people we've had the joy of meeting. Without hesitation I'd recommend Casita Del Mar as the place to stay. Thank you Mirko for everything.

“The house was amazing with a great location in Hopkins village!”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Excellent house right on the beach. The property is picturesque, loved sitting on the porch and the beach to watch the sunrise and sunset. Everything we needed was there for our use- Very clean home. Walked the town and beach, we couldn't have been happier with the choice to stay here. Big thanks to Mirko for the easiest of check in, being available if we needed something, and reaching out to us to make sure all was good. If looking to stay in Hopkins (great experience with friendly people!), I would recommend staying here!!

“Amazing Vacation”
Reviewed July 10, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Casita del Mar was the perfect beach house for a relaxing getaway. It has breathtaking views of the beach and ocean and a great location in the heart of Hopkins village. We spent a lot of time lounging on the hammocks and enjoying the wonderful ocean breeze. The house is very clean and well furnished. We appreciated that there is drinking water available in the bathroom and kitchen. The house also has free wifi, which made it easy to keep in touch with home. The kitchen has a large supply of cooking utensils and the grocery store is very close, if you want to cook. We tried out may of the local restaurants and enjoyed experiencing the local culture. Mirko the property manager was very helpful answering any questions about the town and can make arrangement for any of the exciting adventure tours that Belize has to offer. Hopkins village was a laid back friendly village where we enjoyed great food and meeting new people.

“Beautiful peaceful House steps away from the sea”
Reviewed June 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The house is everything as advertised and more. The pictures don't do it full justice. We loved hanging in the hammocks and being cooled by the sea breeze. If you want peace and quiet, Hopkins is the place to go. That said, the town is very third world and may not be to everyone's taste. However, we enjoyed the local flair, and people in the town were super friendly. Mirko and Annette were great. They arranged all the transportation and transfers, and made sure we had everything we needed.

“Casita Del mar-velous”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I am always a bit skeptical selecting properties online. We have been finding vacation houses for over 14 years online and sometimes photos present the property differently. Casita is more beautiful than the photos, we were very happy! This is a recently built home. Construction is solid with beautiful wood floors, and tile work in the bathroom that is lovely. It is well-stocked with kitchen needs, if you choose to cook. There is an outdoor shower, laundry facilities, and a grill available outside. Two hammocks and a table with chairs are on the deck for eating and enjoying the sunrise. The tropical breeze is wonderful, and reading or napping in the hammocks were a pleasure. This is a very clean and comfortable setting. The mattresses are comfortable, as are the pillows. We had a guest on the futon, and she also was comfortable. This was a concern initially, as she is 75 years old, and joined our vacation right before leaving. The property manager quickly provided bedding upon our arrival and actually set the bed up for us! This was a tremendous help as we had traveled most of the day and were pretty tired. The manager was informative on where first aid kit was stored, restaurants to eat, shops to buy from, and even where to get fresh fish to grill. He checked in mid-stay as well to see if we needed anything. Truthfully, leaving was tough as this was total relaxation.
Although this is ocean front, it is not a place to snorkel. You can, however, kayak or SUP. My husband reminded me, also, that vehicles must park slightly left of the property due to the beach sand, and vehicles will get stuck if one proceeds too close to house.

“Nice casita home right on the beach!”
Reviewed April 17, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The home is right on the beach! The balcony deck provides an exceptional view of the beach and surrounding area. The casita is very clean and fresh with a well supplied kitchen for cooking. You are in the village and everything is in walking distance. Merko the property manager is very polite and helpful with learning the area. We had absolutely no issues or problems here.

If you are looking for a vacation destination with large restaurants, bars, clubs, and wild night life -- Hopkins is not your place.

If you are looking for a quiet getaway in the Caribbean and enjoy learning about local culture and exploring the inland of Belize, Hopkins fits the ticket.

“Hopkins is a wonderful place to live like the locals”

person found this review helpful

We had an absolutely fabulous stay in Hopkins. Casita Del Mar was a perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. The house was clean and well-organized. It had everything we needed. The view simply couldn't be beat. The ocean couldn't have been more than 25 yards or so from the house. We had beautiful palm trees on our beach 'backyard.' We could rest in hammocks on the deck overlooking this view or in nice wooden deck chairs on the beach. We appreciated the nice touches, including drinks in the refrigerator waiting for us on our arrival and the provision of a cell phone to stay in with with Mirko, the property manager. Hopkins is a charming village where locals and tourists can interact. Grocery stores and restaurants were convenient, and it was nice to be able to walk to everything. It also was nice to be able to listen to local music at restaurants in the evening. The community is friendly to tourists, but the place was not inundated with tourists. So you could get a feel for the local life while also indulging in pure relaxation. Mirko helped us arrange an amazingly snorkeling trip on one day. A wonderful, wonderful stay. One suggestion for any vegetarian travelers-- consider getting groceries at a larger town before arriving in Hopkins. The grocery options for vegetarian travelers are somewhat limited.

So glad that our home made your anniversary celebrations special. Congratulations! We do have a new vegetable and fruit market in town with an excellent selection but I can see that the selection of legumes you would need is limited. We look forward to your return to Casita Del Mar!
