Casa Placencia was a great place to stay for my week long vacation in Placencia. Jacki was a fantastic hostess as well as a wonderful baker that would occasionally leave tasty treats at my door. She even sent me off with an oversized muffin so I would have something to snack on while I waited at the airport.

Jacki is further very familiar with the island and understood what I needed from the vacation so she tailored my stay accordingly. Bikes were provided and most tourists were envious of it. The bike to the edge of town at a casual pace only takes about 10-15 minutes and is very pleasant as the road is not very busy and many people get around town by golf cart, bike, or by walking.

Also I should mention how clean the place was and how beautiful the decorations were. I felt extremely safe which was important being a single female traveling on her own. Her staff was also very helpful and willing to fill you in on good spots to hang out on the beach as well as where to eat. Someone was always available to help and in a great mood.

Other house guests were also very friendly and even did activities together. I think Jacki does an excellent job picking her guests that stay over.

Overall, I loved my stay at Casa Placencia and would highly recommend it to anyone. The place is clean, staff is friendly and helpful, other guests are nice, and if you get some of Jacki's baked goods you simply will not want to leave--I know I really struggled to :)

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!

My fiance and I spent one night at Casa Placencia during our trip to southern Belize. We were waiting to get on a sail boat for the week and only needed a place for one night (very difficult to find during the holiday season.) Jackie, the owner is very helpful and pleasant.

Our garden room was small, but very clean. It had a nice spacious bathroom, comfortable bed and the air-conditioning was great. Although Casa Placencia is located outside of town, it was a very short bike ride to town and to the beach. Bikes came with the room and Jackie gave us some very good recommendations for dinner. There were several nice open air restaurants within walking/biking distance. Jackie arranged for a taxi meet us at the airstrip when we arrived and for a taxi to pick us up the following morning to take us to our marina.

Ideally located next to the main road, leave your alarm clock at home because the stream of traffic and trucks will get you up with the birdies. We stayed in a garden room, it was very intimate. Two single beds to the right pushed against the wall with just enough space to get by on the left. It will remind you of scouting, your feet will be directly next to your companion's head. As an extra perk the bathroom (conveniently does not have a door, but rather a shower curtain) is at your companion's feet. You will get to know the bodily functions of your co-traveler, ahhhh, a dream come true!

Cozy does not do it justice! The windows in the bedroom do are clear glass bricks, no air circulation. Option "A" is the AC which is rather noisy and cold as it shoots straight onto the beds or "B" you must open the sliding door onto the communal patio. Luckily the toilet (must open window out of courtesy to your companion) is eye level so forget any cheat sneaks at looking at the guide book on the loo. The only thing missing at Casa Plasencia are those cute little don't disturb signs. Overpriced and claustrophobic. Casa Plasencia has a low price/quality ratio.

Room Tip: These are many other local hotels and cabanas that are located along the beach. You sleep to the sou...

You will never find a more welcoming and upbeat host than Jacki. I'd like to think it was our irresistible magnetism, but the truth is, it's probably Jacki just being her normal, friendly, generous self when she greets you with warm, home-baked sour cream coffeecake or whole-wheat cranberry/cherry muffins straight from the oven. Gary and I spent 7 days in her top-floor 1-bedroom garden apartment with the veranda overlooking the road. The apartment was charming: lively tropical colors, cool tiled floors, colorful mosaic tiles and paintings, lots of lush tropical flowers and greenery inside and out. The kitchen comes stocked with everything we needed: coffeemaker and coffee, blender to make smoothies, fridge and stove, and all utensils. (Air-con too, but we didn't need it; cable flat-screen TV with tons of channels.) The table, chairs and hammock on the veranda are inviting places to spend the evenings enjoying the sounds of the gecko calls and frog peeps. In our apartment overlooking the road, trucks going by can be a little noisy, but being on the road has its advantages: it makes for fascinating people-watching. Jacki has bicycles for her guests, and we loved the convenience of riding our bikes to town (about a 5-minute ride) to try the many delicious restaurants and eateries; we much appreciated getting some exercise before and after all the lobster and gelato. The bike ride also cools you off on the warmer days. Jacki gives great advice on things to see and do: ask her before you decide-- she'll steer you to the right people. She also has two little dogs that are willing to dispense furry love as needed. I can honestly say that after bicycling down every walkway and road in Placencia, Jacki has the most attractive-looking place. Inside and out, her place was comfortable, clean, bright and cheery. You can't go wrong here! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Room Tip: Road noise ends by midnight. If you're bothered by sporadic traffic when you're sleeping, b...

Jackie was welcoming and friendly right from the first minute I walked in off the street and asked if she had a room. She was helpful with good suggestions for places to go in Placencia as well as other places in Belize. I had the use of a bike which was wonderful for exploring the peninsula. The hotel was cozy and secure and not right in the middle of town but close enough to walk there and to any of the beaches. A lucky find.
