Erin and Lucky are two of the kindest people you can meet. Their place is right across the street from the beach on a lagoon which is quite beautiful. It's comfortable, cozy and very clean. I ended up spending a good bit of time hanging out with them and friends of theirs who will be moving to Placencia. I enjoyed...

We did not stay at the Captain Jak's cabanas but had a perfect experience renting a golf cart from them. We were staying up the road at the Belize Ocean Club. When we checked in at BOC Captain Jak's had already delivered our golf cart. It was new and in perfect condition. Additionally, their communication while working out the transaction...

Stayed for 9 days in late May. Our hosts Erin & Lucky were very friendly and made us feel welcom and relaxed. Our cabana was equipped with everything we needed and was just a few steps from the lagoon jetty. The tropical garden was a lovely setting and busy with humming birds, squirrels and iguana to mention a few. Ceiling...

My husband and I spent two weeks there in Feb. and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It had the right "easy going" vibe for us and was so central to everything - bars, cafes, groceries etc. The staff was friendly and helpful, as others have mentioned the gardens are nice and of course there is the resident parrot to talk to each...

We've been gone a little more than a week but our hearts are still in Placencia. We've been telling everyone at home what a wonderful time we had, but it's really you and your team we should be telling. Captain Jak's really was a perfect spot for us. We loved the cabanas and the cottage - well-equipped, comfortable and not...

Stayed here our first two nights in Belize, and Lucky and Ivy made sure we made the most of it. They arranged our unforgettable Monkey River tour with Percy, King of the Howler Monkeys; recommended Di Thatch and Barefoot Bar for good eats; had an immaculate well-appointed kitchen for the night we decided to cook; we really need to thank...

You never know what to expect when blindly booking on the internet (no offence trip advisor) but we are delighted. The cabins are all teak wood right on the lagoon. So nice to have a complete kitchen. The tropical garden grounds are meticulously maintained by the charming Louis. Quiet and clean . Glorious!

Captain Jacks was a great place for a quiet, beautiful weeks vacation in Placencia. Our cabana for 2 was one room. full kitchen for eating in with a great front porch. We had a waterfront cabana next to the channel so the deck chairs, hammock and deck was 15 feet away at most. We experienced all the waterway traffic and...

Captain Jak's hands down has the best bicycle beach cruisers for rent. The bikes are new, all have baskets, comfortable seat, locks and we also got lights to attach to the bikes for riding at night. Captain Jak is super friendly and will work with you as far as a 'deal". In his own words, "I'm not going to nickle...

We rented two cruiser bikes while in Placencia. The bikes were simple and in decent shape, though mine had a low front tire which made it a little difficult to pedal. We got a lock as well in case we stopped somewhere. They have golf carts as well, but we chose to get some exercise while exploring. Keep this place...

Choose from one of the tropical garden private cabanas, two-story cottages, and/or private villa. Captain Jak’s offers accommodations for the back packing adventurer, couples, families, and/or small and large groups. Captain Jak’s is a hidden oasis, while still being located only steps away from the village and the Caribbean sea. Captain Jak's has its own private marina which allows you to leave from your door step for diving, sailing, fishing, Caye hopping, kayaking, or snorkeling. Zip lining, Mayan Ruins and cave tubing aren’t far away either. The owners of villa resort live on the property and they are some of the best hosts you will find in Belize. Make sure to ask them about their sailing trips. There is nothing like sailing with Lucky and Erin on the warm Caribbean Sea, anchoring at sunset and BBQing the fresh catch of the day while drinking their famous rum punch.You must experience Captain Jak’s. ... more   less
