1 BR Cabana for rent on Beachfront Lot with Sea Views, Hopkins, Bel
- english, german
About Mirko Bechstedt
Baby Blue Cabana was built in 2014 in the lot behind our beachfront Blue Moon Cabana. We put our hearts and souls into the cabana and wanted to build a place that fit with the culture of Hopkins. It was important to us to create a space that was comfortable and included all the things we would want ourselves in a rental cabana in Belize. We are not into the resort experience and value the local culture and people of Hopkins. We leave the resort-type experience to the places south of the village. Mirko, who lives nearby Baby Blue and Blue Moon Cabana is available to assist guests with all their needs during their stay, including transfer to and from the airport (and other locations) and arranging tours and other adventures for guests.
Mirko Bechstedt purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Mirko Bechstedt chose Hopkins
Hopkins is a laid back village with beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea and Maya Mountains on the other side. Hopkins has a rich cultural life --and traditional Garifuna life is evident throughout the village.
What makes this Cabin unique
Baby Blue Cabana is centrally located in the village which allows us to soak up the rich cultural life of the village. Local restaurants and other popular establishments are within walking distance from the cabana, but guests can also rent bicycles to get around, too. The cabana itself is steps from the sea and enjoys fabulous breezes directly from the sea. Hopkins is a great base to enjoy day and half-day trips to the jungle, mountains, and cayes. In addition to relaxing on the veranda or on the beach, there are so many adventures to enjoy in and around the village.
Check-in: 4:00 pm
Check-out: 11:00 am
Only outside on the veranda, not inside the cabana
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Loved this cabana and the location in Hopkins
We loved being in the village of Hopkins, enjoyed the local restaurants and the local culture. The cabana was super clean, Mirko was very helpful, reviewed everything with us, and was available if we needed him!
In the heart of the village yet on the beach
The cabana was great for two people and the small kitchen was equipped with just about anything you’d need if you chose not to dine out (we ate out but enjoyed having coffee on the deck in the morning and cold beers in the evening).
There is a larger cabana in front of this one but you can still see the ocean and catch the ocean breezes. Luckily the cabin came with earplugs - there is a loud rooster in the neighborhood who isn’t afraid to be vocal whenever it strikes him.
The location was great - walking distance to anything in Hopkins. The grocery store and many restaurants are within a few blocks. And if you have any questions, Mirko, the property manager is very responsive. He can also arrange tours and activities in the area.
The only reason I didn’t rate this 5 stars is because of that darn rooster. That’s not something that can be controlled but folks should know it can be a little loud.
Jennifer, thank you so much.
Sorry, but this is Hopkins Village and there are chickens and roosters, like you said, nothing we can to about it.
Hopefully see you again in Hopkins, Belize.
Belize Hopkins Beach
Property was convincedly located just steps away from the beach. The bungalow was efficiently laid out. Frig, and kitchen items provided including coffee maker. Short walking distance to restaurants, bars, and grocery stores. Site provide information for many different excursion activities. Perfect for 2 people. I would definitely recommend this location or the property located in front of this location for bigger families.
Jeff and Erin

it happened in hopkins
great place to unplug from today's world. simple life and leisure...and an excellent host for help when you need it !!
Paul, thanks for the great review! Places as great to unplug as Blue Moon and Baby Blue are getting harder and harder to find, just when we need more and more of them! So glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.
Bliss at Baby Blue Cabana
For me, my stay at Hopkins was perfect in every way. My life is normally very hectic , so coming to Belize from August 4 to the 10th was extremely relaxing. Everywhere I went the people were warm and friendly. Hats off to Peer's Restaurant. The setting reminded me of my personal "Paradise" with the ocean views . I plan on coming back to Belize next July. I hope to rent the same property. Mirko is very knowledgeable and helpful concerning the Belizian culture. Thanks to the groundskeeper Angelo who schooled me in three kinds of coconuts produced there. I give a "shout out" the lovely English lady that also maintained the property.
Thank you so much for the great review. It is hard to beat the combination of the people of Hopkins, the cabana on the beach, and Mirko's and the staff's attention to detail. Can't wait to see you again!
great hide away
property was very clean..and great view of sea. walking distance to a few restaurants and real nice walk to a nice beach bar drift wood . only draw back was an annoying rooster that crowed all night even with ear plugs you could hear the rooster
Thanks for staying with us, we will work on the rooster problem, lol.
