Three purpose built guest rooms downstairs from my home. They share a veranda with two hammocks for each room. We are located on a lovely beach with shady palms - in the Garifuna fishing village of Hopkins.
Hopkins is a village that gives you access to kayaking, snorkeling, diving the barrier reef, jungle treks, and Mayan ruins.
Open your room door. Step right out onto the beach. Step into the Caribbean sea.
My place is great for single travellers or couples, and the sea view is amazing!
"Seafish" is a small rustic beach room (a 135sqft bedroom, a bathroom and a seaview veranda). It's made from local woods, in Belizean style, and built right on the sand in front of the ocean. It has a fridge, a coffee pot, plates and cutlery. No kitchen. The bathroom consists of a simple shower stall with hot water, a sink and a toilet.
Towels and beach towels are provided, as are some reading materials and an information folder on the area.
Windows front and back of the room are great for ventilation. The windows, a floor fan and the sea breeze are what cool this room.
Guests have access to to the beach, and beach chairs, which are right in front of the room. Two hammocks on the veranda. And there is also a garden seating area behind the rooms, with fruit trees and orchids.

I have almost 20 years experience of Belize and, if you wish, I am happy to help you with village information and tour recommendations.
I give my guests space but am available if needed.
9% Belize government tax will be collected upon check-in.
I built in Belizean style with products that where available to me 20 years ago. I have chosen to keep my guest rooms in that same style.
If you are looking for modern this would not be the place for you. But if you are looking to stay somewhere that really makes you feel like you have visited somewhere different for your vacation then I think this will work for you.
I do not consider my wooden guest rooms suitable for children, better suited are my more modern listings of the apartments.
No visitors who are not part of the original booking.
Please smoke outside the room.
Please wash any dishes you have used before checking out. Thanks.
I am the owner and manager of a guesthouse in Hopkins since 1998 and I've managed AJ Palms Apartments since 2014.
I'm British by birth, and naturalized Belizean by choice.
I lived in Germany, off and on, for 10 years before moving to Belize. I am fairly good at speaking German, but I'm not all that great at writing it - I am willing to try though.
I've always felt renting out my rooms and apartments is like renting out a part of my home, hopefully my guests get to feel the same way when they I host them.
I enjoy my life on the beach.
