Casa Placencia Ecotique Resort began as home for expat, Jacki Tipton in 1997 who designed & built this property with beauty, comfort & ecological living in mind. After first building the two, second floor apartments, it was an easy decision to gradually expand to accommodate 16+ guests in three- one & two bedroom apartments for weekly & longer visits and four-garden rooms for drop ins or shorter stays.

Stunningly furnished with original paintings, prints & carvings from Belize & Guatemala, all accommodations provide quiet air con, 24/7 wifi, flat screen cable tv, refrigerator, coffeemaker, cotton linens and private tiled bathrooms.

Reasonably priced garden rooms are perfect for travelers on a budget who want all the amenities or groups of friends who prefer separate rooms.

Custom designed apartments with fully equipped kitchens, many include dishwashers & ice makers and full-size bath tubs which are not common in Belize. Quality US made furnishings, as well as custom made in Belize by Mennonites, Creoles, Mayans & Garifuna, complete the interior tranquil setting with colorful flora & fauna, outside. Honeymooners, couples travelling together who prefer ensuite accommodations for privacy, and families with children 12 & over choose these apartments. Expats & Belizeans coming home to retire after working abroad and looking for a safe & diverse community often stay at Casa Placencia while building their forever homes.

Located in a quiet & secure neighborhood surrounded by tropical trees, plants & flowers, Casa Placencia offers distant sunrise views over the Caribbean sea & dramatic sunset lagoon views with a Maya mountain background. Take a short walk to beautiful beaches or ride your bike to nearby shops, bars, restaurants & tour operators. Spend the evening listening to live music on the beach, returning home for a tranquil night's rest.

Take a refreshing dip in small above-ground pool or do morning yoga on spacious deck. All guests receive complimentary bicycles to explore & get around with use of kayaks & custom BBQ to cook their catch!
Ms Jacki, Arturo & Orlando welcome guests with fresh baked pastries and on occasion, bananas, pineapple, papaya, mangoes & coconuts from her nearby organic farm, Ageable Acres. She enjoys sharing her love & knowledge of the entire country, as well as her favorites on the peninsula with her lovely guests from all over the world.

I keep coming back and back...
Jacki and Casa Placencia feel like home to me. We have been visiting this part of Belize since 09 and we always try and find a way to stay with Ms Jacki. In my profession I am always on the road and have grown to dislike your usual hotel. Casa Placencia stands above the 5 star resorts I've stayed at with its attentive service, spotless rooms, and more than comfy accommodations. Thank you Ms Jacki and Blu for making me feel at home and for another stellar stay with you. I cannot wait to see you guys again soon.

Wouldn't change a thing...
We rented the second floor apt which FAR exceeded our expectations! The unit was impeccably clean, well appointed, and welcoming (on top of that, we thoroughly appreciated the working A/C and wifi!). Jacki couldn't have been more hospitable from providing us with homemade goodies, directing us to restaurants, lining up taxis, sharing her local knowledge, and making our stay comfortable. The complimentary bicycles, assigned to you, were a big asset in exploring Placencia and local grocery runs. One evening we returned home with a flat tire, emailed Jacki, and it was fixed/ready the next morning without missing a beat. We would highly recommend Casa Placencia!

GREAT STAY @ Casa Placencia...
My wife and kids and I had a great time at Casa Placencia and in Placencia in general. Jacki is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC and we were so very glad to meet her and hope to stay in touch forever. We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit and absolutely loved it. It is in a great location and we walked everywhere. We hope to see you again soon Jacki!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
