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.

The space
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.

Where you’ll be

Hopkins, Stann Creek, Belize

The location of our house is ideal. It is within walking distance to restaurants and a couple fun family-friendly bars, and even a day spa. It is also a 10 minute bike ride to Hopkins village or the Marina. The house is far enough away from town that you get the feeling of seclusion yet you are still close to all the day-to-day necessities.

Mom and wife and lover of travel! My husband, Austin own a wellness spa in Santa Cruz, CA. We met on a wine tour. Five and a half months after this meeting we ran off to Las Vegas to get married! We honeymooned in Hopkins, Belize and loved it so much we built a vacation home there! We both have a love for adventure and plan to travel the world with our 10 year old son as much as possible! About six years ago we took off for Europe for ten months with our then 4 year old son. We stayed almost exclusively at Airbnb's and enjoyed the experience so much that we decided to become hosts once we returned home. We now have 3 generations living on the property. My mother lives in the home with us and my husband's mom lives in the unit in the backyard. We also have a Golden Retriever named Butter. She is the friendliest dog ever! We look forward to meeting you! The Traveling Twohigs!
