“Perfect Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2015

Casa Placencia was a great fit for our group as we explored the area. Rooms were clean and comfy. Daily housekeeping and flower art was sweet and unexpected. A short walk to town, and even shorter rode on the provided bikes (Nice touch!) allowed us easy access to the town and beach, while keeping us out of 'busy' areas'. Jacki was very helpful in suggestions on how to plan our day and her baked goods were lovely. A perfect location to enjoy all that Placencia has to offer. Highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Easy access to a lovely beach and town.

Taveling with a group of friends, this worked out to be the ideal place. Jacki was super helpful - way above and beyond, and every recommendation turned out to be an excellent experience. Staff were professional and helpful. Suite had all that was needed, the pool and the garden a great retreat at the end of the day. The location, though out of town turned out to be perfect - walking or riding (free bikes a total bonus!) distance to everything, and the perfect beach and pool bar close by. Suite was clean and comfortable, a sweet spot to stay.

Room Tip: Suites are a better set up than the garden room, with more space, light and air circulation.

I spent 9 very relaxing days at Casa Placencia. AC was great, room was spotless and very well maintained. The staff was very helpful and friendly, Jackie even delivers baked goods to your door some morning. Bikes were in great condition and I used it everyday. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

This is the perfect place for feeling at home on my first visit to Placencia. Located just outside the village of Placencia, it is a 5 to 10 minute walk ,or shorter bike ride (provided to each guest), from grocery stores and an outstanding assortment of funky and fine restaurants. Fusion Beach, my favourite beach hangout with excellent restaurant and bar, is a few minutes walk down the road. The two bedroom suite I stayed in, with full kitchen and a bathroom for each bedroom, as well as a sunroom facing the lovely garden and above ground pool, was perfect to accommodate the three of us, complete with quiet air conditioning when it was a little too hot and humid. I had already heard of Jacki's delicious baking through reviews, and this part of her welcome package each time a new guest in my party arrived was both touching and delicious. The service provided by Blue and Kennedy her two able and gentlemanly assistants was also impeccable and discreet. And Jacki herself ! how to describe her ? a great personality with a full life experience and a big heart. Professional and discreet, her presence provided that personal touch, and she generously provided us with her seasoned knowledge and advice for how to make the best of our visit ! Yes, Jacki's creation deserves the reviews it gets !

Room Tip: I would guess that the rooms on the upper level would be a little brighter.

If you are coming to Placencia, Belize, we "highly recommend" that you stay at Casa Placencia! Jacki's tropical oasis on the edge of town offers everything you could look for and more. The accommodations are spacious, immaculate and all include Jacki's artistic designs and renderings. They offer extremely comfortable beds, a/c & fans, fully equipped kitchens, very nice bathrooms, flatscreen tv's, cable and great wifi. The grounds offer many beautiful flowers, colorful shrubbery and swaying palms. Also, make sure to take advantage of the cool refreshing pool & deck after a long day exploring all that Placencia has to offer.
If that's not enough, it gets even better due to it's owner Jacki, who we grew to love dearly during our one month stay. She is a warm, delightful, caring individual that has a wealth of knowledge to share about Belize. She's also a great baker and shared her goodies with us on multiple occasions. Kennedy (Jacki's property manager) and Blue are also exceptional individuals and bend over backwards to make your experience a memorable one. Her place is strategically located right on the edge of town (only an 8-10 minute walk or 4-5 minute bike ride) on the bikes she provides her guests to use free of charge. As a result, you have the best of both worlds!
If you're looking for exceptional accommodations & truly wonderful customer service at a reasonable price, then Casa Placencia is just your ticket.

Jacki welcomed us with open arms and had freshly baked coffee cake for us awaiting. She was extremely helpful on things to do and where to eat in Placencia. Our room was the perfect size with a small fridge and coffee maker with coffee and sugar supplied. There was even a couple of travel games and books for our use while staying. I would highly recommend staying with Jacki if you're in Placencia, it's never a dull moment.

Showed up there April 14, 2014 not realizing that Easter week was such a big deal in Belize. Jackie took such good care of us and gave us great info on where to eat and how to deal with the crowds during the weekend! Would stay there again most definitely!

Room Tip: Only saw the room we stayed in, but it was great. AC, bath, comfortable bed and able to make coffee...
