My husband and I recently stayed for a month at Casa Placencia while looking for a long-term home in the area. Jacki was so wonderful helping us every step of the way. Our one bedroom unit was very comfortable and the mattress was brand new and awesome. Anything we needed, a soup ladle, and extra pan, advice on where to buy things, Jacki was the one to ask. She was so helpful with nice beach bikes for all the guests to use around town, she made us feel like family. We even had a potluck dinner on the balcony one evening and visited with others from all over the world! Since we were relocating to Placencia, it was perfect having a knowledgeable resident to help make our transition go smoothly.
It was so cute to have a mockingbird every morning right outside our sliding glass door, talking to his reflection, so we didn't even need an alarm clock!
I also appreciated that during our stay, Jacki was having the whole place freshly painted and landscaped, adding little pergolas and benches to be nestled into the abundant flora and fruit trees. When we arrived, she gave us a perfectly ripe papaya from the backyard to have a welcome snack! I loved taking pictures of the flowers and birds that are everywhere! Fun and whimsical mosaic tile adds to the Caribbean feel of this great little escape, away from the noisier parts of Placencia Village. I highly recommend a stay at Casa Placencia!
