“Pictures do not do Justice!”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in May 2018

We arrived at nighttime during our stay at the Villa Rising Sun and were immediately greeted by Mark. We were amazed at the location and accommodations during nighttime and were really looking forward to what daytime brought. The best way to describe waking up was that pictures do not do justice to how breathtaking this property is. On top of that, Mark and Sabrina could not have been more accommodating and full of information when it came to activities in the area. Hopkins is a special place that is a village family with everyone who's there. I truly do not believe we could have enjoyed Belize any more without staying at the Villa Rising Sun!

“The photos are exactly like the property is! The pictures say it all.”
Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in February 2018

Traveled as 2 couples, had unfortunate weather but the owners and Mirko helped us enjoy our stay none the less. The Tiki bar was perfect for those rainy days as it was still comfortable and warm. The villa was well stocked and the owners, Mark and Sabrina were very generous and hospitable. They went above and beyond with assistance and information, but never obtrusive. We felt like we were alone staying with friends. Great location to all that Hopkins Bay has to offer, walked to many great restaurants. The Jeep rental was a necessity as the road system was pretty beat up by the unusual rain fall. Will plan to return and met many lovely local people.

“Beautiful beachfront home”
Reviewed 3 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We recently celebrated my parents 50th wedding anniversary at Villa Rising Sun. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations. There were many highlights to our trip. One of them was owners Mark and Sabrina. They were the most gracious and amazing hosts I have ever had! Mirko, the property manager, was so helpful from the the initial booking of our trip to the very end as he saw us off the day we had to leave. He was accommodating and made booking all of our excursions so easy. We also had Shelly, a fantastic local chef, come in and cook dinners for us, I highly recommend that as well!

“UnBelizeable!!!”
Reviewed 8 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We don't want to leave too good of a review for Villa Rising Sun as we don't want it to be booked next year when we want to return! Joking aside, this place was PERFECT! Way beyond our expectations. Mark and Sabrina are the perfect hosts. Even though this was our third trip to Hopkins, they were able to introduce us to new places to go. The villa has all the comforts of home, but the crowning jewel of this spot is the Palapa Bar! We spent as much time outside as possible when not in the Village or doing tours. We used the grill frequently and ate outside to enjoy the beauty of the beach. The dock was over-the-top great as well! It was a great place to watch sunrises and sunsets as well as catch a few afternoon rays of sunshine. Angel did a wonderful job at keeping the grounds clean and was super friendly! Night time security was wonderful as well! Victor and Gil would stop by the bar on their rounds and visit. Truly great people with hearts of gold! All in all, this is the BEST place to stay while visiting Hopkins!

“Wonderful family oriented home on the beach”
Reviewed 18 February 2018 for a stay in December 2017

What a fantastic place to stay any time. The owners Sabrina & Mark live upstairs but you would not know that as you can not hear them, their dog, Tango or their pet parrot.They are simply wonderful, helpful way beyond what you can wish for. The 3 bedroom house has everything you could want for plus more. The beach bar / palapa is a great place to chill out and watch the ocean. The deck out over the ocean is a super place to relax, do yoga or just sit and contemplate the world.
We would suggest having a car but not essential. Local restaurants are great palces to eat and Sabrina & Mark can make suggestions for all sorts of good places to visit. We were going to Gecko's one night for dinner and they made a reservation , unbeknownst to us, for us. When we arrived the chef, Robert greeted us very warmly, almost as if we were family. A pleasant surprise.
It is our pleasure to highly recommend the Villa Rising Sun to everyone who wants a marvelous place to visit. They even made us feel so invited that we are looking at moving to Belize.

Villa Rising Sun is located in Hopkins Belize. Hopkins is a great place to experience the culture of Belize. Villa Rising Sun has a great beach and outdoor bar with everything you need. The villa is very spacious with many amentities. The owners, Mark and Sabrina were very helpful with anything we needed. Their property manager, Mirko was very helpful with setting up any touring we wished to do which made it really simple to make daily plans.
