Perfect Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I came to Hopkins after 3 weeks in a small village outside of Belize City. The Compass Rose Guest House was more than I could have hoped for. Gayle and Jack are exceptional 'hosts'. As others have written, it really is a treat to encounter their 'welcome package' after a long day of travel. The cabana or cottage is perfectly appointed for comfort and enjoyment. I've never seen such a well stocked kitchen with all the essentials for cooking in. That blender is the best for making a heavenly tropical smoothie. Boy, can it grind ice. The wildlife viewing deck is another treasure. Do heed Gayle's and Jack's advice about insects! Either lather on the repellent or put on long sleeves and pants. Doctor flies are vicious and I was one of the people who have a wicked reaction that can last for days. The available bike is a Godsend, though I would never recommend putting either eggs or Belikin in the basket if you are riding back to the guesthouse from the village, unless you want egg soup and/or exploding Belikin bottles. Plan your outings/tours carefully; try to avoid buyer's remorse There are many options and prices/enjoyment will vary. Mirko is the onsite (Hopkin's) manager; he is very courteous and helpful to the guests. I would not hesitate to recommend this great rental! One day, I hope to get back there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to let us know how your stay was at the Compass Rose. It is always a thrill to get positive feedback after a stay. We have worked hard as a team to provide comfortable accommodations. Jack & I are travelers ourselves & we have tried to combine what we would expect & more when we rent a vacation home within the Compass Rose for the guest convenience. Oh yes, I have learnt the hard way about eggs & bicycles. Only one way to cook them, scrambled. Thank you once again & we know we have done our jobs 110% effectively when we get a good review. Happy Travels....Gayle & Jack Kosydar & the Team at the Compass Rose Guest House-Belize

A great experience

  • 5 of 5
Our first trip to Belize was incredible. Hopkins and the Compass Rose turned out to be the ideal place for us to unwind and adjust to a completely different lifestyle. The owner's correspondence leading up to our stay was prompt, organized and very helpful. While in Belize, the property manager's thoughtful service and attention was truly outstanding. Overall, a great experience.

Two weeks of perfection

  • 5 of 5
When planning our vacation, we wanted a quiet, oceanfront home. CRGH had all the comforts of home;it is well furnished and clean. Loved the look of the ceiling. We were surrounded by nature, but only a few miles from the village. Very pleased with the wildlife sightings;dolphins, barracudas, manatee, pelicans, herons, hawk and more.
We throughly enjoyed Bonnell's sunset river and lagoon trip and Bocawina Falls. We discovered Don Lee's grocery store on the south end of the village had the best selection and prices. Tina's and Sittee River Marina were favorite places to eat.
Owners were helpful and friendly when I contacted them with questions. I had mentioned that I was hoping to find a great tamale during the vacation. Suggestions were sent to me. Shortly after our arrival at CRGH, tamales were delivered,
We found that the Hopkins Rd. Is being greatly improved this year and was not as bad as we anticipated.
Our stay in Belize was everything we had hoped and would recommend this to all who are looking to kick back and enjoy nature.

YOU BETTER BELIZE IT!!!

  • 5 of 5
WOW!!!! We had a great time. The pictures of the Compass Rose on VRBO don't do it justice, you just have to be there.The view, the home, the peaceful sounds of the ocean,, priceless! Mirko was so helpful and a great asset to Hopkin's. This was our 2nd trip to the wonderful village of Hopkins and everything was perfect right down to the ice cold Belikin's and Belizean Rum waiting for us when we walked in the door. Thank you Gayle and Jack for letting us stay at you little piece of heaven!

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5
House is as described great for two people. ocean is calm waves of 6" we didn't see many animals some lizards lots of birds. Insects, only the no see ums a couple hours a day there is almost always a nice breeze off the water, as long as there is a breeze there are nun of the no see ums. The road is dirt and many many pot holes no street lights tuff to get home on a bike after dark. The people are very nice Mirko arranged some trips for us he was great he checked in every couple days to make sure everything was going okay.
the weather was great. There are some good restaurants in and around Hopkins. We had a great time very quiet relaxing.

Owner's Response: Thank you John for your positive feedback. Yes, that road has been the main topic of conversation since we first came to Belize in 1999. It is all part of experiencing Belize. Our goal is to create a nice environment for your guest to kick back & enjoy after a day navigating those roads. Thank you once again for choosing the Compass Rose as your home away from home.

Great Private Cabana

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Compass Rose Guest House was absolutely wonderful. We've stayed in many places in Hopkins over the past 12 years and this by far was the most comfortable and peaceful. I'll highlight below some of the best attributes but overall, it was the care and attention they put into the Compass Rose. Everything was so thoughtful from the dishware to the linens to the layout and design and it was immaculate, scrubbed top to bottom, fresh and sparkly clean. It was way roomy enough for 2 adults but I would say the pull out futon could easily fit another adult or some small children.

Awesome Favorites (somewhat in order):
Cold beers in the fridge when we arrived
Air conditioning (our first time having it)
HUGE covered deck with big chairs and hammock (bring on the rain)
Perfect wildlife viewing dock (we saw crabs, loads of birds, barracuda, sting rays, etc.)
Everything was labeled (helped when we needed to change garbage bags, etc)
Big beach towels
First aid kit and little extras like bug wipes and vinegar
Nice big clean shower
Big sink
Clothes line and pins
Extra linens
Really creative built in furniture and extras (little extra comforts)
Every utensil and dish you could possibly need, spices, ziplocks, all those things you forget :)

It is fairly far from the village (which we prefer actually because its sooooo quite and peaceful) but easy and close to rent a scooter or golf cart to get around and there are lots of cabs who will come get you. Quite close to Sittee River and crocodile sitings. :)

All in, it was a fantastic place to stay. These guys thought of everything, it shows their love and respect of a truly incredible spot in Belize and I would recommend it a million times over.
