Such a great place to stay

Four of us girls stayed for 8 nights and it was awesome. The pictures don’t do the place justice. Super clean. Mark and Sabrina are the owners live up stairs- don’t let that be a negative in your thinking to book it, they are the friendliest and most helpful people you will ever meet. There is 6” of concrete between you and no one will hear your noise. They are not intrusive and are like having a concierge on site. We chose to engage with them and thoroughly enjoyed their company, there was so much about the local area and people they were able to tell us about. They hooked us up with Shelly (a local cook) and she made us dinner at the house. We invite her and her assistant Brenda to eat with us and asked Mark and Sabrina to join us and we had the best time ever. Mark knows everybody here and took us for a tour the first day so we could meet the locals and learn where everything was. We took a snorkeling trip to the reef and were picked up right on the dock at the house. The reef is phenomenal’ second largest in the world and you will not find formations this large anywhere. The ocean floor was and entire reef and there were place where I could swim underwater through trenches and the coral walls towered over me. I swear I saw a 2 bedroom apartment sized brain coral too!! We saw a couple of manatees near the dock and also pelicans and frigate birds diving for fish. We had an Agouti and a Coatimundi visit us almost daily At the house to munch on our left over veggies. That was pretty special. You can also meet Tango who is a local celebrity at “Shake-it” and also Mark and Sabrina’s dog. She is so lovable and got me my dog fix every day. They have a kayak and we used it to go around the point where a flock of Pelicans were roosting and they didn’t mind us at all. They crash landed within 15 feet of us. Loved it and Mark Sabrina made even better!!!!

Wolf, You and the gals were wonderful. The perfect guests and we would so much like you guys to come back. Cheers from Sunny Belize ;)

Everything we hoped for.

We took our family to Villa Rising Sun for Thanksgiving week and it could not have been nicer. Beautiful location right on the beach, private. Hopkins is a small town of 1800 with a nice mix of expats and Belizeans. Many nice homey restaurants. The owners of the house are on site and Mark and Sabrina were delightful. Mirko arranged outings and we had a cook come in several days to cook fresh fish for our group. Great snorkeling several miles off the coast, We had a wonderful time.

Hello Greg and thanks for your review. I hope you and your family are able to come back.

Exceptional!!

We stayed yet again at Villa Rising Sun! Can’t say enough great things about this place. It is like home away from home. Spotlessly clean inside and out. The beach is stunning and the dock is a great place to hang out. Mark, Sabrina, and Tango are the perfect hosts! We always love staying at Villa Rising Sun!

Our experience was fantastic and we loved our time here.

We stayed at Villa Rising Sun for 6 nights. Our experience was fantastic and we loved our time here. The property is spacious, private, clean, with a fully stocked kitchen to prepare meals and everything is very well maintained. The location is also great. You are close enough to stores, restaurants and the things Hopkins has to offer, but in an area where you feel like you are at your own private resort. Mark and Sabrina are awesome hosts. They ensured we had everything we needed to make our time in Hopkins that much more comfortable and enjoyable/memorable. Cheers Mark and Sabrina, and thank you! Mirko was great, and always responsive. Assisting with various questions throughout the reservation process, coordinating transportation to and from the airport, putting us in touch with James to get a golf cart, and booking all of our excursions, and making the process virtually seamless for us. We just needed to know what time to be ready to leave, and the rest was taken care of. Mirko removed a lot of the things that can be stressful during vacation - allowing us to focus more on enjoying our time and the activities we chose to do. On a couple of the evenings during our stay, we also asked Shelly to prepare some authentic local meals for us. Once we chose from the suggestions she made, she picked up the groceries and brought everything over to the villa to cook the meals. The food was absolutely delicious, and another one of the great experiences we had during our time staying at Villa Rising Sun! Unfortunately, our vacation had to end, but thank you all for the memories! Overall, we had a great experience from start to finish, and loved our time at Villa Rising Sun. My family and I would highly recommend this property if your travels take you to this area.

Heaven!

This is a fantastic property! It its own dock and a lovely beach bar. When it's finally time to go inside, the accommodations are BEAUTIFUL and so comfortable. The hosts/owners, Mark & Sabrina, are friendly and so very helpful. It's like staying with dear family. Mark takes new guests on a tour of Hopkins and provides many helpful tips and information.

Villa Rising Sun

Great property. Awesome hosts in Sabrina, Mark and Tango. Property Manager was very thorough from booking thru visit. Watching the sunrise from the deck swing every morning was amazing and ending the day with a cold beverage at the tiki bar was perfect. Meeting the locals (Victor, the beach security guard; Leticia who made fresh orange juice and her daughter to the little boys selling banana cake in town) made us love Hopkins. The villa had everything we needed for our stay. Fully stocked with kitchen supplies, plenty of towels, beds were comfortable. It was an awesome trip!

Great Vacation Home!

Had such a great time at Villa Rising Sun and loved Hopkins! House had everything we needed and more. Very clean and hosts were very helpful giving recommendations for eating out in the village. It was a nice feature to have the bar right on the beach as well. Going to miss the view of waking up to the ocean every morning. We will be back at this rental again for sure!

Happy in Hopkins

Villa Rising Sun was perfect for our family of five. We arrived late afternoon; there to great us was not only Mark and Sabrina but Mirko as well. We spent 8 nights at VRS and cherished every one of them. Every other day we enjoyed the amazing beach/dock in the back yard. The care taker Angel, was so very kind and knowledgeable about the vegetation and animals on or near the property. He was kind enough to even let our kids experience fresh coconut right off of a tree. When we were not enjoying the still waters at VRS we were enjoying all that Belize has to offer; fishing, snorkeling, cave tubing and or zip lining. All of the excursions were booked the day before via Mirko and surpassed all of our expectations. Mark and Sabrina (and Tango) could not have been better hosts. From sharing their property to making sure everyone had everything necessary, to providing vast information on local food, people and culture. Mirko was excellent in providing us amazing opportunities on our excursions that all came with awesome guides. We truly enjoyed the time spent at VRS, Hopkins and the surrounding area. Our kids are already talking about a repeat visit next year. Until then, we hope that you too will enjoy VRS as much as we did! Happy in Hopkins!
