"Our first trip to the Dominican Republic was one I will never forget. Villa Celeste was amazing!! The location was perfect as we spent many hours down at the beach. Only a short walk to surf school, which had a fun little tiki bar. You have Cabarete, which is an area of bars and restaurants on the beach. That was so unique and fun for all of us. We went to 27 falls, which was a blast and also went on a kayak tour. There is so much do to in Puerta Plata, yet you cherish the times you have at the home with the pool and ocean. Mary will cook the most amazing dominican meals."

"I was traveling solo, so rather than pay double the price at a hotel, I was able to rent this lovely home. It was awesome. The house is beautiful. It is older, but it is big, clean and well worth the money. The pool is beautiful and well kept. Luis is always working his behind off. He was great. The beach is nice, but I would use caution. There is a strong current...didn't bother me as I am use to this and I am a strong swimmer. If you use anddy for tours, I would caution you not to pay up front. Make sure the tour shows up before paying. Also, make sure you nail down times if you are supposed to meet with him. Really enjoyed my vacation and I hope to come back again with some friends."

"We had such a great time staying there (2 weeks)! The place is very clean (Danni the caretaker cleans the place twice a week), very spacious, a good air flow, and very safe. The kitchen is well equipped, linens and beach towels. Beautiful garden, small swimming pool and gazebo at the back.
The apartment is attached to the main house yet very private.
Costambar is a very quiet gated community, very few traffic, so the area is pleasant to walk around without pollution or traffic noise. Beach is walking distance,10 min, so are the restaurants, 5 min, not a whole lot of choices but "Sole mio" was our favorite!
Getting outside Costambar you can take a motoconcho to the main road C5 or walk, and from there take a guagua (local bus) for a few pesos. 45 min to Sosua , 1 hour to Cabarete, it is worth it and gives you a real local experience!
But more importantly Yash and Hemu are the nicest hosts you can have, extremely helpful and friendly, any questions you can have, feel free to ask. They truly made our stay very special, we enjoyed sharing conversations with them. They are around minding their own life, yet available if you need need anything without being intrusive.
They do care that you are having a good time and that you are not missing anything. We had a few rainy days, actually torrential rains and Yash came to check if we needed anything or needed to go anywhere. On several occasions Yash drove us to the main supermarket in Puerto Plata and the currency exchange for best rate.
This is a place for a peaceful and relaxing stay, and we highly recommend this apartment.
We were sad leaving and of course cannot wait to be back!"

"Sunshine, blue water, a nice pool and the ever present Mojito. It doesn't get any better. A short walk down the beach brings 9(?) beach front restaurants as options. Living on the
East coast, we would love to have these possibilities. A gated community with 24/7 security (I don't know why it's needed)a totally private pool, and a super tanning location over the pool house is just the for starters.. For a truly beautiful sight, a walk on Kite beach in the afternoon is a must for great pictures and brilliant colors
It was a great week that we are still talking about. Oh yes, one of the better French
restaurants you will find this side of France. Thanks for a great week, you can bet we will tell our friends and family about your home.
Terry & Sandy"
