Our vacation home is a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom house, with a large living room and kitchen, as well as a large screened-in veranda. The roof is a 600 sq ft palapa with incredible views of the ocean and the Savannah of Sittee River. Sleeps 6 people.

Prostor

The house can comfortably sleep 6 people.

The truly unique thing about our home is the palapa. It is one of the biggest in Hopkins. We have nicknamed it 'The Temple' because it is so peaceful sitting among the tree-tops and staring out at Victoria Peak. Friends have commented on how restorative and healing the space felt to them. If you practice yoga, the papala is a wonderful place to start and end your day. From the back side of the house, for as far as the eye can see there are no roads, no power lines and no buildings. It is very rare these days to get such a raw view of the landscape.

We are also quite proud of the detail that has gone into the construction of our home away from home. By using locally sourced materials indigenous to the area and employing local craftsmen we have made a beautiful home that respects the environment while supporting the local economy. The ceiling alone is a work of art and the entire kitchen, bathroom and palapa bar counter are hand hand made from the beautiful lumber found in Belize.

As this is a tropical setting, we made sure to have semi-outdoor space on our veranda for dining and entertaining that is screened in yet still open for the ocean breeze and peekaboo view of the ocean. It is so spacious it is really like having a second living room and dining room.

Dostupno gostima

The house is all your own. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to prepare meals and linens and towels are provided for your use. We have also provided children's beach toys, an infant life vest, beach mats, and snorkeling gear for our guests to use.

Interakcija s gostima

We have our friend Janette helping out with the house while we are away. She is a great resource for activities in the area as well as great conversation!

We can always be reached by text, cell phone and email. Airbnb email is preferred.

I went to Belize to enjoy the ocean, beach, and the town itself. This location is indeed near the beach, but it is very difficult accessing it. The neighbors across the street (beach side of road) have put up barriers to the access even though the plat map shows access lanes. The access that is available is through a business which is not really nearby. The town itself and all it offers is quite a long walk away as well. The road is very rough and difficult to ride a bike along. Carrying groceries, drinks etc is challenging at best, and I would not recommend this location without a car. We had to rent a golf cart to get around. The beach that is accessible is disappointing at best. Most of the new comers who have built there attempt to make the beach seem like private property. The water is very dirty and the beach littered. It was far from ideal water for swimming and snorkeling. Day trips to the reef offshore are amazing, but daily swimming was not. The home itself has some problems, but was adequate for sleeping and cooking. The floors are all finished concrete and hard on your feet. Hardwood furniture is pretty but uncomfortable. The home has fans but can be unbearably hot and humid. The palapa on the roof has a view of the "savannah" which is actually a wetlands/marsh. It burned during our stay and forced us to evacuate. I imagined the palm covered palapa going up in flames from all the sparks, but it was spared. The water smells like sewage and creates a perfect environment for insects. Despite the window screens, bugs smaller than the opening come in as well as ants. Being bit daily by insects that leave welts and don't get better soon was really annoying. You do get Peek-A-Boo views of the ocean between the houses across the street, but it is very little. The neighborhood is under constant construction with dump trucks and other large machines passing daily making the road worse, and creating constant noise. The "slash the jungle and fill the wetlands with house pads for more investors to build homes upon" is the daily grind, and the effect on this environment is destroying it. Local people are not welcome in the area and are treated poorly by many of the neighbors who see them as some kind of threat when they come to sell their handicrafts. I talked to many of them during my 3 weeks stay and was embarrassed by many of their stories. It was a place I regretted renting and I tried to cancel. After contacting the owner, she offered to refund half of the money if we vacated in half the time. We agreed to this and then she reneged, saying it was Airbnb websites fault she couldn't actually live up to her word. We stayed anyway feeling stuck, and went home a week early from our month rental. Good...

I feel you chose to see only negatives in your vacation choice. Perhaps you could have done a bit more research on the area prior to planning your trip as it sounds like you had much different expectations. Hopkins is growing and has some growing pains but we are friends with "locals" and many have made friends with some of the expats that have chosen to make Hopkins their home. We built Tio's Treehouse for ourselves as we enjoyed the area so much. While some of the concerns you pointed out are somewhat annoying, it is providing jobs for locals and some growing pains are to be expected. My husband is down there now and his feedback is quite contrary to yours. I am sorry you did not have the vacation you hoped for.

Janette was great about giving us keys - and let us know how everything works. The house itself is lovely - beautiful wood, nice kitchen lots of space. It is quite a way out and with two bikes and four children we found it harder than we expected to get around (our own fault for not doing more research) it was also quite hard to get to the beach as all the lots opposite have been sold off and you aren't supposed to walk across them. Sunset amazing, woodpeckers in the trees and a nice convenience store within walking distance. Wifi worked well. Thanks so much!

We had a great stay at the Treehouse. Hopkins is a fun funky little town. The local village is a bit of a walk/ride/drive but the house is centrally located in the more recently developed gringo area. The house itself is very comfortable and well appointed. Brenda was a welcoming host and was quick to respond to my questions. I would happily recommend a visit to Hopkins and a stay at Tios Treehouse to a friend.

Tio's Tree House was everything they said in the profile. We had a great vacation in Hopkins. The house was comfortable, clean, well managed, the kitchen was useful, the view was spectacular and the location was great. Having the bikes to get around was perfect, allowing us to get into town easily and not waste gas or put more unnecessary wear and tear on the community roads. Communication with the host was great and the local folks they connected us with were super helpful. We hope to be back in the future. Bring lots of bug repellant & baby oil ;)

We loved the location, the view and the bicycles! It was a perfect spot close enough to everything, but far enough to enjoy some quiet. The only drawback was how hot it got at night, almost unbearable. It also did not have any blinds on bedroom windows which limited the privacy. Otherwise great stay!

Glad you enjoyed the use of the bikes and the location. Unfortunately, August and September are some of the hottest months down in Hopkins. You guys are the first to even stay this time of year! :) We will pick up a few extra fans next time we are down and hopefully future guests will enjoy their stay as much as we do when we stay at Tio's Treehouse :)

Austin and Brenda were wonderful, we would highly recommend them. They were genuinely friendly, and very quick to respond over email; any questions we had were answered thoroughly with additional information that always proved helpful. They have a spacious and clean home with thoughtful amenities (ceiling fans in every room, and extra floor fans in the bedrooms, plus light dimmers!), a gorgeous third story palapa with a great panoramic view that makes for a heavenly hammocking experience when a breeze passes through- and it's all just a stones throw from the ocean! They suggested a lengthy list of activities for us to experience in Hopkins and the surrounding areas, along with particular places to eat and shop, as well as specific people to speak with. They set us up entirely- a fail-proof vacation- and we absolutely enjoyed it all. Between the islands with clear water and white sand beaches, the world class barrier reef, and the hiking up to waterfalls in the jungle- all within 30 minutes of Hopkins- it's as paradisiacal as one could ever imagine. You owe it to yourself to visit, just do it! Thank you both so much, we look forward to staying in your lovely home again!
