Casa Placencia is our go-to place when visiting Placencia. It is walking distance to the village hotspots and the beach, but far enough away from the noise and hubbub of the bar scene. We spent 10 days in the one bedroom upstairs apartment that has a full size refrigerator and stove to make meals instead of always going out. The apartment was spacious and clean, with a queen bed in the bedroom, cable TV (although I don’t know why you would want to stay inside), internet access, air conditioning and a verandah so we could enjoy the outdoors but have shelter from direct sun. We loved having our morning coffee, breakfast or lunch outside, and lounging in the hammock in the afternoon. There is a private pool if you don’t want to go to the beach, and bicycles to get around the area if you don’t feel like walking.
The owner Miss Jacki, lives on site and greets you with fresh baked goodies when you arrive. She has lived in Placencia for over 20 years, is well connected, and a wealth of knowledge. If you have a question, she probably knows the answer, or she will find it for you. Staying at Casa Placencia offers all the amenities of a big resort, but with the personal attention of staying with a friend.
We had a fabulous time at Casa Placencia, and highly recommend it if you want an extraordinary stay while in Placencia.
We loved our stay at Casa Placencia and would highly recommend! It is just outside of the town so it is away from the noise but only a 5-10 minute bike ride to the other end of town. We loved having the bikes to ride through the village. The backyard of this place is so beautiful! It's great for sitting in the pool, eating mangos off the trees, and watching the birds and lizards! The room was lovely and there were beautiful flowers waiting for us. One morning we even had some delicious brownies from Jacki! Jacki is a great host and provided recommendations for beaches and restaurants and organized tours for us. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Casa Placencia really hit the mark for what we wanted. It has local charm, very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The pool area is perfect to relax and cool off in between meals. The location is very walkable or you can hop on the bikes provided which is fun too. We made dinner one night and ate poolside. Of course the coffee cake that Jacki left us was delicious, she was extremely helpful with local recommendations and getting us through a few instances we did not correctly prepare for, very appreciative for that. In terms of overall value I don’t think you can do better, we did the research. When we come back to Placencia this will be our spot!
Casa Placencia is a very nice little property right on the edge of Placencia Village. Property is beautifully maintained by Jackie and her staff. Smallest of details make this place feel like your own vacation home. Nice little pool and back yard area to relax and cool off.
Everything about this place was outstanding. From Jacki's hospitality and interesting stories, to the little touches that made the room feel like home. We were given bikes to ride around and everything is pretty close by, so you can have your choice of whichever beach you like (though the one at the very end of the peninsula seemed to be the nicest for swimming). The room we had was spacious, cool (thanks to the A/C and fans), and vibrant in color with a little kitchen and a private bathroom. The pool was a nice option to have as well, and I used it quite a bit, even just to take a dip to cool off. Very safe, gated, and very clean. Highly recommend this place for traveling in small groups of 1-3 people or solo travel and I felt that we got a lot for the price we paid.
