We were looking for a quiet, not-too-fancy-place near downtown Placencia and Captain Jaks was perfect. Far enough away from noise, but close to the beach and lagoon and downtown. Private, quaint, just what we were looking for. Nothing fancy-but we hardly spent any time in the room anyway! The owners Lucky and Erin were wonderful and very helpful! I'd definitely stay there again!

We stayed in one of the two-bedroom (2 bath) two-story bungalows. It was a great experience. We had everything we needed. Lucky and Erin are super nice and helpful. You can book tours and rent bikes and golf carts right on the property (w/ a discount). Everyone is very nice. Sunsets from the dock, beautiful trees and flowers, amazing hummingbirds all around, iguanas came to visit. Next door is a fruit/vegetable stand and the best coffee and shake/smoothie stand. Grocery store is across the street. Beach is a 3 minute walk. Free wi-fi. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Had a great time at Captain Jaks. The Villa was excellent, the 2 decks we had were perfect, would have breakfast on the back deck and afternoon cocktails on the front deck. We were within easy walking distance, a couple blocks maybe away from our favorite happy hr pub. The food was excellent in town, we never had a meal we didnt love. Lucky and Erin and Jason were very friendly and helpful with any questions we had. The 2 talking parrots they have were very entertaining. The property was very well kept. Would highly recommend this place to stay.

My family of four , myself, my husband, 2 boys aged 16 and 18 and my sister have traveled quite a bit. We have always gone all inclusive so this was going to be a challenge for me. I e-mailed Lucky and Erin many times they always answered my e-mails right away and calmed my worries. We rented the main villa as there was 5 of us.

The Villa:
The villa has 2 actual bedrooms with queen beds, one of the bedrooms has a bathroom with a shower. Each has a overhead fan and air conditioning. We never turned it on as we had the windows open at night and with the fans going was comfy. There is a TV in each of the bedrooms . The main bath also has a shower. The living room and kitchen dining area is wide open with three ceiling fans. The kitchen was very well equipped even had a blender and toaster, coffee pot... large fridge, stove, freezer under the fridge.They had games, books, movies under the large TV in the living room. There are two main decks off the villa one to the street side where we sat in the afternoon to catch the breeze, the other in the back toward the yard and lagoon . We would have our morning coffee and sit and listen to Barney and Oliver talk in the mornings. (their two parrots in the back yard) they were a hoot to listen to. There are lots of birds to watch, Erin has hummingbird feeders on the back deck that we filled every second day. They also have a look out tower on the villa with two levels.

Location
Captain Jak's is on the lagoon. They have a dock with lounge chairs and chairs to sit and enjoy the fantastic weather, there is also a shaded area. Captain Jaks is directly across the road from a well stocked grocery store and just down the street from the Everyday market another grocery store. Almost next door to the farmers market for fruit and Veggies.
They are about a 4 minute walk to the beach about 1 block to the sand , 6-10 minute stroll to restaurants and to bars. So it is in town close to everything but not to close. Captain Jak's rents kayaks, mopeds, golf carts, little 4 wheel bike thingies all right there.They have 3 one story cabanas and 2 two story with two bedrooms as well as the main villa.

The People
Lucky and Erin own the resort, Jason works there. When we got there we were greeted by my sister who arrived earlier then we did and Jason who told us where to get groceries and answered our questions. Yes you can drink the water out of the tap here. In the morning Lucky and Erin came up and we talked about tours etc. They were not pushy at all and he told us what there was to do. We told him what we wanted and when and he booked it for us. The cab was late to pick us up and he even phoned to see what was up. Erin introduced us to Aerobella ( Sorry about the spelling Erin) her parrot. Erin told us about where to shop, they told us their favourite restaurants. And I must say they were right. Every meal we ate was fantastic. Barefoot bar , De Tach, another I cannot remember the name, Omars, ( they do not serve alcohol but you can bring a drink from the Barefoot next door to drink with your meal) . Anything we needed or wanted Lucky and Erin were more then happy to help us out. Jason cut down some coconuts for some of us guests and he cut them open for us so we could eat the meat. Jason also was very good at answering questions and was more then happy to help us out if we needed anything.

This was a totally different vacation then the all inclusive that we are used and we all absolutely loved it. It was nice to be able to sit on the back deck with a cold beer and watch the people walking on the road while playing backgammon.. Paradise..

My husband and I , and sister loved it and so did the boys. It has a small town feel, ( A friend of theirs got a hair cut and lots of people noticed) .We felt very safe, walking on the main road or on the sidewalk. Saturday afternoon horseshoe tournie at the Barefoot Bar was a hit with the boys. The food everywhere was fantastic, Captain Jak' is close to everything but not to close, minutes to the beach, Nice to be able to rent a golf cart right there. We were there for 12 days and felt like we were leaving our family , Lucky and Erin when we left. We will for sure return to Captain Jaks.

“Great place to stay if you are visiting Placencia region”
Reviewed 11 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We were satisified with our one week stay at Captain Jaks. We had a cozy comfortable and clean cabin. The property is well located within easy walking distance to the beach, stores and restaurants, but the cabins are set in a charming tropical garden so that when you are sitting on the cabin veranda looking out to the pier and the lagoon you do not feel like you are in town at all. Captain Jaks has golf carts, bikes and kayaks available for renting at reasonable prices and it is a great way to explore the immediate area. Our congenial hosts Erin and Lucky made our stay effortless. Jason was also always he was alwayspleasant to talk with. All in all Captain Jaks is a great place to stay if you are planning to visit the Placencia area!
