Interaction with Guests
As an on-site manager/owner, I am available for guests most of the time & if not, my trusted & long time asst manager, Kennedy, is there to help with anything needed. I enjoy sharing my many Belize stories, as well as assisting with travel plans all over Belize, as well as Guatemala & Mexico, Honduras & Costa Rica; all of which I have travelled extensively over the years.
LOVE the location on the Placencia peninsula, offering both distant sunrise & sunset views. Quiet & secure neighborhood with sea breezes. Short walk to beautiful beach, shops, bars & restaurants, as well as bank with ATM, tour operators, car & golf cart rentals & more.......
Bus stops right in front, in fact, they stop wherever you flag them down, all over the country; or fly into Placencia from Belize airport or elsewhere in the country.
Raggamuffin tours on Caye Caulker often sails to Placencia or drive down Hummingbird Hwy from Belize City, my fav drive in the country!
On-street parking available in front.

Please note that 9% Belize Hotel tax is to be paid on arrival; it cannot be pre-paid on airbnb.
Jacki was very hospitable. She offered to pick up some things from the supermarket so we would have something when we arrived which was very helpful. She also baked some delicious cake to welcome us. She makes you feel very welcome.
Jackie is very friendly and informative on places to eat in the area. She bakes tasty goods and has a nice crew working for her. The apartment is kept clean and fresh flowers are a nice touch. My apartment was at the back of the building so quieter as it is further from the road but a little dark and on the other side of the street to the beach.
Thx for your feedback, Louise, as an airbnb host yourself, I appreciate your helpful comments.
Being on the first floor, this Apt is perfect for those wanting "less sun," as in, it is darker inside than say, upstairs Apts and a great deal cooler at all times.
As we have 4-Apts all with different locations, we have something for everyone!
Our internet was a problem for several days and I am so happy to report this problem has now been solved.
Jackie Tipton was a wonderful host. Because of a previous family engagement, she was not at the property the week my family and I stayed, but she was readily accessible via e-mail and she left two very capable assistants to help us with anything we needed. Jackie is well known in the town and respected by the community members. The property was in excellent shape and obviously well loved and taken care of. My family and I would love to go back for another stay!
Jill, thank you so much for your helpful suggestion, I appreciate it very much!
We do check everything prior to new guests coming in, but I'm not certain that these were checked, so thx again for your comment.
On occasion, batteries will corrode quickly due to salt air & humidity.
Hope to host you again in the future when I am there.
Have a wonderful summer,
Casa Placencia was awesome! I'm convinced that we stayed at the best place in town for the place and the host! Everything was super clean and in good condition. The apartment was exactly what we expected based on the description and pictures. The mattresses were great, the AC was wonderful, and so many little details were covered (e.g. pitcher of water waiting in the fridge, dishwasher detergent under the sink). And being a little outside of town was actually really cool, because Jacki includes bikes, so we could just take a short ride into town. Did I mention what a great hostess Jacki is? She was so cheerful and helpful and ready with recommendations. And she even brought delicious cake by one evening. The whole experience was delightful!
We LOVED staying at Casa Placencia. What an oasis her place is. We arrived in Placencia for the 2nd half of our Belize trip and was amazed at how beautiful and tranquil Casa Placencia was. Jacki is truly a wealth of information about Belize, not to mention a very friendly and inviting person. She arranged for us to have the Indonesian feast at the Turtle Inn, which was amazing and not something we would have known to do. She also arranged a trip for us to go on a trip to see howler monkeys in the jungle and manatees out at see, both of which we actually saw in the wild. It was a great day trip. The house itself was clean, comfortable, fun and spacious. I definitely recommend staying at Casa Placencia! It's an easy walking distance both to town and the beaches, and there is a pool! We all had a great time. Thanks Jacki!
We had a great time at Casa Placencia! Jacki was lovely and one of the best and most attentive hosts I've ever had (she even baked for us!). The rooms were immaculate and it was great to be in air-conditioning and have really clean drinking water. It was also great to have the bikes to use and Jackie has lived in Placencia for such a long time that she knew everyone and was able to help us (particularly when we were being ripped off by a local tour guide). I'd definitely recommend staying here.
We had a great stay with Jacki. She is extremely knowledgeable about what to do in Placencia and got us set up on an awesome snorkeling tour during our short time there. Highly recommended.
