"Better Than Advertised"
I can not speak highly enough or express the appropriate words for how incredible this property and hosts/hostesses were. Mark, Sabrina, Dean, Shelley, Parks, Greg….everyone associated with Villa Rising Sun was first class. From assisting with dinners, booking excursions, local knowledge, guidance and just general conversations were absolutely on-point and helped make this trip to Hopkins one of the best trips we have ever experienced. I felt like we started out as guests but instantly found friends in another country. My family will definitely be returning to Villa Rising Sun and would encourage anyone to not hesitate to experience the wonderful hospitality shown to us. You will not be disappointed!

"UnBelizable Week At Villa Rising Sun!"
To anyone fortunate enough to come across this property and read the reviews, I can just say to believe every review and appreciate every comment. I had a dream to visit Belize a few years ago so during my search on VRBO I came across this gem. I have been a VRBO member for years and the 1st thing I have ever learned is to READ THE REVIEWS! So, I saw this property that seemed perfect, so immediately I started reading EVERY review. After just a few I was SOLD. It was everything I was looking for from relaxation to family adventures to helpful recommendations for great food and shopping. Once booked, I was quickly welcomed by Mark, Sabrina, Dean, and the entire crew to make sure we had the vacation of a lifetime. I spent several months emailing back and forth with Dean, who helped us plan an amazing itinerary for the week including Cook your Catch with snorkeling (we saw a sea turtle and 2 sharks), Mayan Tours, Birding, Fly fishing, Ziplining, an ATV ride through the jungle to Waterfalls and not to forget our first night of dancing, drumming at our private Tiki Bar and dinner cooked at home for us by Shelly. My dreams and expectations were met during our week vacation. So, if you are looking for an adventurous trip where you feel safe, and well accommodated while visiting (maybe the most friendly place on Earth), then look no further. To Mark & Sabrina, Thank you once again for everything! I KNOW we will meet again. To Dean, Thank you for working with me all those months and understanding my family's desires, disabilities, likes, and dislikes, and working with me to make the absolute PERFECT itinerary. To GTKB (Get To Know Belize) Having the opportunity to hang out with these gentlemen was honestly an honor. Gregory, Dirk, Medz, Jeffery, etc are a few of the guys that helped make this trip so awesome. Some of the nicest people I have ever met and will remember forever. I hope this review was helpful to anyone who is considering Hopkins, Belize. If you are, I would suggest go for it, book it, and let the adventure begins. Work with Dean to plan your itinerary and take advantage of great owners who will make sure your trip is amazing from beginning to end and getting you started with whatever you need. Thank You VRS & GTKB Family! xo

"Perfection in paradise"
From booking until after we left, the amazing folks from Villa Rising Sun took care of us. Hands down the most connected, caring and considerate hosts I’ve run across. They’ve developed a VIP page that gives incredible, easily digestible info about the property, transportation, activities, and a whole array of other entertainment options.....

"Days in Paradise!"
Don't miss this booking, the Villa Rising Sun Team will take great care of you and the space is everything you could possibly want in a beach house! From time of booking to the end of your stay (and beyond!) you are in good hands here. Definitely take advantage of their available services..
