Thank you Ian and Kate for our four lovely days in Punta Gorda. Our cottage was beautiful and comfortable, and there was nothing of that horrible 'resort' feeling about the place. Ian was a mine of information about the people and nature of the area, and we were really grateful for his brilliant recommendations for things to do (which were...

I have just returned from a great stay here with my 19 year old son and another party of two adults and their 11 year old. Ian and Kate were excellent hosts, they clearly love living in Belize and are very knowledgable of the area, it's history, flora and fauna and traditions. Set in beautiful gardens with sympathetic planting to...

We stayed in Punta Gorda for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our cottage was spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed in it. The hotel management went out of their way to tell us about the history and culture of the area, recommend restaurants and excursions, drive us into town, and generally make us feel at home...

We zoomed around Belize for two weeks and HIckatee turned out to be the best place we stayed during our entire trip! Ian and Kate went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible before we even arrived. They were planning on closing for a few days to do property maintenance, which happened to overlap with...

This was one of the best decisions we made in our plans to visit Punta Gorda. Every day (of our 8 day stay) was incredible and Ian and Kate made us feel completely at home while away from home. They are both generous and warm - we'd head back just to catch up with them! We originally booked one of...

This is such an incredible location, a little off the beaten path in PG Belize. If you go to Belize and fail to leave the beaches of Placencia - You are missing out! The host and hostess will pamper you with a beautiful outdoor breakfast. Be sure to book dinner on the porch with other guests for a perfect cap...

Hickatee is the most picturesque setting with the peacefulness of the jungle. The florae was just breathtaking and one of the most beautiful untouched jungles I’ve experienced. Kate and Ian made our stay extremely enjoyable by welcoming us to Hickatee, to the fantastic breakfasts and dinners (chef made!), to hearing their adventure stories, their support in the community and insight...

Excellent place to stay. Individual cottages, clean , beautiful setting and wonderful owners who are informed, helpful and just downright great people. Truly enjoyed staying here. There is a great trail that wanders through the jungled 20 acre property. Also a maze carved out of the jungle. Very fun and not very buggy when we were there in the dry...
