Seagull's Nest Guest House

Hopkins Village, Stann Creek

Hotel Description
Seagull?s Nest offers two different options for accommodation: rooms in a guest house or an entire cabin rental. In a stilted guest house that catches the breeze and a clear view of the Caribbean Sea are simple rooms with a shared bath. There is a common lounge area that includes a refrigerator and coffee maker. One room downstairs has a private bath. A second option directly next to the guest house is to rent an entire concrete cabana that is right on the beach. This fully-furnished cottage has 2 bedrooms, a kitchen and dining/living room area. This is ideal for a longer term stay, although it can also be rented for shorter stays. This hotel was a participant in an environmental walk-thru program aimed at making hotels more eco-friendly. Both accommodations are clean, have a great location by the beach and friendly service.

History & Owners
After spending just a little time along the seashore in Hopkins, it is easy to see how this accommodation derived its name from the many seagulls along the beach. Juanita Castillo was part of the women?s cooperative that started Sandy Beach Lodge. After she went to school in the USA for hotel and restaurant management, she decided to branch out on her own and start this hotel. Juanita describes herself as a ?community person? who loves working with people. She is former chairlady of the Village Council and she remains active in the local community.

Go about 1/3 mile and turn left down the lane towards the beach. The last 2 buildings on the left belong to Seagull?s Nest. If you cannot find the owner, just go to the house directly next door to the concrete cabin and she can direct you to the where you can find the owner.
