My girlfriend, Kate, and I just returned home after 16 beautiful days in Belize. The last 5 of which we spent with Miss Jackie at the Casa Placencia. We were not aware of the art festival that was happening until the last minute and were scared everything in town would be booked. I sent out several emails and Jackie responded almost immediately saying that she could put us up for at least a couple days, and would see what she could do about the rest. Upon arrival on the bus from Hopkins, we were greeted by our names on the board below her sign saying "welcome Kate and Keenan." She met us at the gate and showed us to our room which was small, but immaculately clean and comfortable. After seeing the town and deciding to stay longer than expected, Miss Jackie moved some things around and made room for us in the ground floor 2 bedroom apartment. Amazing! Full kitchen, A/C, cable flat screen, Screened in porch, everything we could ever want. Aside from the accommodations being great, Miss Jackie is an amazing host! Her coffee cake is not to be missed! She was always available to answer any questions we had or to point us towards a great restaurant. I could go on and on,... bottom line, Miss Jackie and the Casa Placencia really made our vacation a great one! Highly recommended!
