About the Property

Casa Celeste is a luxurious but affordable 4 bedroom villa, a hidden gem.

Casa Celeste is a 5 star villa rental, located in magical private community Punta el Custodio, a small and safe vacation villa community 1 hour north from Sayulita (2 hours from Puerto Vallarta airport).

Casa Celeste is one of the 14 villas at Punta el Custodio, and one of the most exclusive ones. Casa Celeste has a big living area/kitchen under a huge palapa, a sundeck with lots of separate little terraces, private pool, small palapa to have lunch or drinks in the shadow, 4 bedrooms all with their own bathrooms and A/C, a media room with TV/DVD and Wifi.

Casa Celeste comes with its own, private maid Mon-Fri from 8 AM-4 PM, Sat-Sun from 7:30 AM- 12 AM. There is an on site staff with an English speaking on site manager, 24 hours /day security at the gate. Punta el Custodio is a place of magical beauty. It is built on a rocky promontory, the fertile ground (Punta el Custodio is formed by lava pouring into the sea) makes the place filled with lush vegetation.

There is a big main community pool with views over the ocean under a 4 centuries old Chatala, or figg tree, only 150 meters from Casa Celeste.

Punta el Custodio is located right next to an impressive estuary, full with wildlife. A must for nature lovers. You can cross the river mouth of the estuary at low tide to Playa Tortugas, a 12 mile long secluded undeveloped beach. From Casa Celeste it will only take you a 5 minute walk to get to Playa Tortugas!

At Punta el Custodio we offer a food plan at $230 USD per adult per week, children 5-12 $115 USD. This includes 3 meals a day, prepared by the staff, and all the shoppings for ingredients for meals plus drinks, snacks and fruit are done by the staff. Only liquor and wine are not included, ask for details.

Please see our video about Punta el Custodio, you can see the link above in the black box with the photo slideshow.

We have WiFi, but with a monthly download, that can be used in 1 day, the connection is not fast. It is good to check your mail, but not to watch video's, listen to music etc.
Internet access in our houses is not guaranteed.
While there is intermittent Internet access within the villa, the monthly data allowance is
limited to 2 GB/month. While adequate for email and reading your local newspaper, the
allowance can be rapidly exhausted by viewing video, downloading music, or by
frequent access to social media, such as Facebook. When the allowance is exceeded,
access is restricted to “dial-up” speeds, which, in effect, means no access at all.
Our houses have fairly reliable 3G cellular access* in some parts of the houses, with no
limitations and at no cost to renters. International data plans are now offered by many
cellular carriers, either at a reasonable additional cost, or already included in your
existing plan.
We highly recommend that you contact your cellular carrier before your rental begins,
and activate a data plan for Mexico that meets your needs. This way, you will be able to
access the Internet on your cellular devices, or you can use your smart phone as a
“hotspot” so that you can access the Internet on non-cellular devices such as laptops
and tablets.
*At busy times of day, such as mornings and evenings, when the local cell towers
become overloaded, the 3G signal can sometimes weaken or vanish. The villa is in rural
Mexico, where cellular service is still in its infancy.
Casa Celeste has a heated pool. During winter months, if you want the pool to be warm, we charge an extra $250 USD per week.
Rentals from Saturday through Saturday!

Car: Not Necessary

Because there are only small grocery stores in the area, we offer the "meal package".

The meal package includes three meals per day, prepared by your private maid/cook, as well as abundant beverages and snacks, and bottled water. The beverages include excellent Mexican beer, various soft drinks, and freshly squeezed orange juice. All the shopping will be done by the staff.

Cost is $230 USD per week for adults, $115 USD per week for children 5-12. We only provide our meal plan for a minimum of 3 days.

Nayarit is a state of bountiful produce, and every street corner has a market selling fresh fruits and vegetables, both grown locally and brought from other parts of Mexico. Our cooks are plentifully supplied with the freshest of produce, dairy products, and meats. And of course there is the sea, where fish and shrimp and even oysters are brought in daily. Our housekeepers are very flexible both in catering to individual tastes as well as to special dietary requirements. We encourage you to discuss meal planning with them at the beginning of your visit, and thereafter on a daily basis if you like. They want to prepare all the meals in accordance with your tastes and preferences--hot or not, etc.

Ismael, our on site manager, sells a variety of wines and liquors in his little store in the Office. The package represents a terrific bargain in terms of price, quality, and convenience.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: My name is Michel Striekwold. Originally from Holland, I moved to mexico to live and work over here in 2006. In 2008 I started my own villa rental company in Puerto Vallarta. In 2009 I visited Punta el Custodio for the first time, me and my little family were invited to spend the weekend with one of the owners. From the moment we entered the gate we knew we were in a very special place.. We have spent more than 70 weekends or more since then in all the 14 houses at Punta el Custodio, and everytime again we feel we are in paradise. Since 2012 I focus only on 8 villa rentals at Punta el Custodio, Casa Celeste is 1 of them.

Why Compostela, Nayarit, Mexico:
This is one of the most exclusive properties at Punta el Custodio. The furniture, beds, evrything you can think of is of top quality, and very well taken care of. Vicki, your private maid, as the complete staff at Punta el Custodio will take care of you!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The sunset views from the terrace are magnificent. Punta el Custodio in itself is a magical place, with a very special atmosphere. It is one of these few places you call paradise. Casa Celeste is perfect to rent with a larger family. friends or more couples to share the cost. Our excellent onsite staff makes sure that the villa is perfectly maintained and that our guest will have everything they need. You van discuss special food needs with our onsite manager, and arrange tours in the neighborhood through him. There is 24 hour support, we have a guard at the entrance. Punta el Custodio is located in one of the safest regions in Mexico.
