“We would go back here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We rented one of the small rooms as that was all we needed. Very clean, comfortable and safe. Lovely gated grounds with beautiful gardens and several comfortable places to sit outside. Quiet and a bit out of town. Jacki provided bikes we took to town which was fun.
We had a pot luck supper one night with other residences which was a great way to meet others and a very good time.
Jacki was very friendly and makes great muffins! She is very committed to her home and community.

Room Tip: Great for solo and couple travelers. She also has a larger room she rents which has a lovely view.

We spent 3 great nights in late January at Casa Placencia. Our ground floor room was smallish but comfortable, nicely decorated, and came with everything we needed (tv, a/c, fridge, coffemaker). For us it was the perfect distance from town, a leisurely 15 minute walk along the road or on the beach; or if feeling lazy it was quick ride on the free loaner bikes Jacki provided. Jacki was always very helpful and friendly; a great host - we were greeted with her yummy home made brownies. Highly recommended!

Jacki was really a great energy from the first moment I contacted her. She welcomed us with freshly baked cookies and treated us to her baking the whole time we were there. The room was small but all we needed. WiFi works well and there was even a television. Really liked not being in the center of everything in Placencia. Nice walk to and from the restaurants. Jacki is highly entertaining with a very cheeky history. She was also great helping us get to our next destination. I would go for one of the larger studios next time as they look really special and the beds look newer. Definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you can afford a little more, go for the studios. Worth the extra.

Perfect place for us. Jacki is a great host. Always making our mornings great with fresh sweet, muffins and coffee cake. Our 7 days in Placencia were fantastic. The Scuba provider she referred us to was superb! She also set-up a trip to us at a Caye that was a great day. Restaurants she recommend were delicious. Room was cozy and unique. Casa is cute and in great shape. WIFI worked well and tv had a ton of stations. Great experience and plan on staying again.

We were on our way to Hatchet Caye-but couldn't make the boat trip because the water was too rough. We'd been traveling for 2 days already to get to Belize, and were exhausted. Hatchet Caye sent us to Jackie at Casa Placencia where we were meant with open arms for the night.

This charming B&B is very well maintained, and is beautiful. Jackie even baked us delicious pastries for our morning boat ride over to Hatchet Caye.

We were very grateful to be put up in such a charming spot while we waited to get transferred to our resort,

Thanks, Jackie!

I spent the entire month of November, 2012 at Casa Placencia in Miss Jackis' studio unit. The accommodations are very clean, well supplied, and the grounds are very safe. After a month in this little community my opinion is that you cannot get anything near the value anywhere else. Others may boast different amenities but if you want bang for your buck, stay here. Jacki is a wealth of knowledge and seems more than happy to help her guests have the best time possible. Hers' is not a party resort but we did have numerous bar-b-ques in the evenings, for those wanting to participate, and I made some good friends there. Jacki has laundry service and additional cleaning services, for a small extra fee, which makes it that much easier to focus on relaxation or more importantly, "What's for Dinner?" Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms to the rear are more quiet.

Had a great stay at Casa Placencia. Our room was bright and cheery, the deck was a great place to have your coffee in the morning, and Jackie seemed less like a hostess, and more like the cool aunt (that you always wanted) that just happens to live near the beach, always has room (and who is always baking something delicious).

Most importantly, if you want to go to sleep to something other than the thumpa-thumpa of Placencia's night life, Casa Placencia it is far enough away from it that it isn't an issue, but close enough that you can borrow one of Jackie's many bikes to ride there in about 5 minutes (or walk in 15).
