Maxhapan Cabanas
Certificate of Excellence

Cabanas are really big and clean compared to everything we had in Belize. Louise was a very nice and helpful host during our stay. The bikes provided really improved the experience of our stay in Caye Caulker.

Stayed at Maxhapan Cabanas Mar 2014 and I wish I could have stayed longer. This is a homey paradise on Caye Caulker. Louise and her husband take great pride in keeping their property clean and inviting. The central garden is a great area to relax, socialize, and get advice from the cheery Louise. The property is not directly on the water, but still gets a good breeze and you're only 100 yards away from the water on either side of the island. The property is ~15 min walk to the Split and it's an stroll to close restaurants and stores along Middle and Front St. Also, Louise allows free use of bikes throughout your stay which makes it especially easy to get around. I had a lower cabana with a private porch, equipped with a personal hammock. The large room had a refrigerator, a microwave, and bottled water was provided every day. Louise personally cleans each room so they are always spotless. I couldn't have asked for a better stay and hopefully you're lucky enough to book a room!

In March we boated over to Caye Caulker for three days and were very fortunate in our selection of the Maxhapan Cabanas as our place to say. Louise the owner told us of the story of how the Maxhapan Cabanas came about and why the only built three units; however, you will have to stay there to hear it. Linda and I travelled there with close friends. We chose the lower unit and they took the upstairs. The cabanas were very nice and included a microwave and small fridge. The real story about the Maxhapan is the hostess Louise. From the very start she made us very welcome. Once evening while I was sitting in the courtyard byob bar area, I noticed bring jugs of some kind of drink and putting it in coolers. She explained that it was her birthday the next day and this drink was for the party. She said the drink was called the Maxhapan and included tequila, grapefruit juice and other ingredients. Louise then poured me a large glass to see if I liked it - it was very refreshing. She then expressed regrets that we were leaving the next day and would miss her party. The next morning as we sat waiting for the golf cart taxi to pick us up, she came over with drinks for the four of us along with four birthday cupcakes.
We will definitely being staying at the Maxhapan when we come again to Cay Caulker next year!

Room Tip: Maxhapan is not on the beach, but Caye Caulker is so small it is only a short walk. The owners of t...

We walked to this little garden eden and asked for a room. Fortunately there was one free room on the ground floor of the two two stories cabnas... "Room" is maybe an understatement, its more a small apartment.. Little but very fine!

Louise is an amazing person, she was so lovely we sometimes still tell each other about her. We deposited our two backpacks there and as we came back two weeks later, everything was fine, but there was no vacancy.. :-( but we planed anyway to visit Ambergris Caye..

Louise is an extraordinary person with a huge spirit and a lot of power and we felt really like we were in paradise!! One of the top places we stayed during our 14 months traveling...

Thank you Louise!

Had an amazing time in Caye Caulker. Louise is very friendly and the cabanas are very nice and clean. It is a short walk to the beach and from the water taxi. Next time I go back I would definitely stay here again!

We were lucky enough to stay here for three nights and it was absolutely wonderful! Louise is an excellent host plans our cabana was perfect; soft linen and towels, comfy bed, great hammock on the balcony, fresh water and towels every day and spotlessly clean. They really have thought of everything.

We used the free bikes each day and enjoyed lazing in the garden in the afternoons.

I could not recommend staying here enough! Also- if you want to do any snorkel tours please use E Z Boys, we went on a Sail-Snorkel day with them and it was incredible!

Louise is such a compassionate and caring lady there couldn't have been a better way to end my Belizean adventure than at the Maxahapan. Her concerns for her guests are very genuine and accommodating and she is a lovely person to talk with. The rooms and grounds are so clean and tidy and she is a fountain of information. This is high on my list of places to go back too!!
