Family-owned for generations, we have been providing a "Home Away From Home" holiday for guests visiting Belize for over 15 years! Come stay in our cozy cottages, nestled in the center of a 400-acre working farm, San Lorenzo.
*This is one of two Air BnB listings we have. This listing is for a private room with two double beds; the other listing ("Farm Stay - Private Bunk Bed Room") is for a private room with two large beds that can sleep up to 4 adults if 2 people share a bed. Both have private bathrooms.
**Please note that I (Suzi) manage the online bookings for Airbnb, but your actual host will be Santiago Juan, the owner and operator of the cottages.
There are 10 unique and comfortable cottages on the property; each cottage can accommodate single travelers or groups of up to 4 adults. There is also a large dining area and veranda, as well as an enclosed indoor studio and large yard spaces. The property surrounding the cottages is a working farm with domestic cattle and horses, as well as beautiful wild birds and a host of organic fruits and vegetables.
KITCHEN AND MEALS
We have a kitchen on-site, but it is restricted to staff access only, and guests cannot use the kitchen. On the plus side, we do offer optional meals and activities, both of which can be paid for as you go in cash or credit. Please let us know in advance if you would be interested in any of these. Price for breakfast is $5 USD per person and $10 USD per person for dinner.
CLOTHES WASHER & DRYER
Laundry services are available on-site for an added fee of $5 USD per load.
Nabitunich offers spectacular views of Xunantunich from afar, as well as easy access to rolling pastures, nature hikes, the Mopan river, and the nearby towns of Benque Viejo and San Ignacio. In addition to horseback riding, Hanna Stables offers a wide array of outdoor activities that will thrill nature lovers of all ages. Activities are arranged to suit your preferences and itinerary, ranging from horse riding, swimming, birding or taking a leisurely walk on one of our nature trails. Exotic gardens surround the cottages of Nabitunich, which provide the perfect setting to witness a spectacular sunset behind Xunantunich.
Please contact us to find out about booking tours, on-site meals, and transportation.
Interaction with guests
The owner, Santiago Juan, is often busy throughout the day working on the farm or leading horseback riding tours, but he will join guests for a meal. Visitors are also welcome to book a horseback riding tour with Santiago (highly recommended!) to ride around the San Lorenzo Farm, or take an exotic ride to the famous Xunantunich Mayan ruins.
Other things to note
Please note that we are located in a semi-remote area, 5 miles away from downtown San Ignacio. The best and most accurate way to reach our property is by catching a taxi in San Ignacio and asking the driver to take you to "Hanna Stables" or "Nabitunich." Please do not attempt to walk, as it is very long with few walking paths and involves unpaved roads.
From Belize City, we are a 90-minute drive away. We can be reached either by Tropic Air flights (fly into the San Ignacio airport), public bus (about $20 USD per person for a 3 hour trip), or private taxi driver ($100 USD one-way for a 90 minute trip). Please let us know if you would like a private driver as we can reserve one for you.
*Note: I am a Seattle-based individual currently managing booking and marketing for Nabitunich, Hanna Stables, and Nefry's Retreat in Belize, which is why my profile is associated with this vacation listing. The host of Nabitunich is Santiago Juan, whose family has owned and run Nabitunich for over 15 years.
I am an avid traveler and writer/photographer currently based in Seattle, Washington. My travels have taken me all around the United States and beyond, with AirBnB serving as great resources for finding accommodations and local hosts in cities I visit. As a guest, I am very clean and respectful of the homes I inhabit and the residents who live there. I'm up for grabbing dinner and hanging out with hosts, or leaving them to their privacy if they please. If you'd like to know more, shoot me a message! I can't wait to meet you!
