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 would have loved to be able to offer good working, fast internet in all our houses. However, we are located in rural Mexico, it still isn’t possible here to have a reliable, fast internet connection with unlimited data download.

Here is our advice:

Internet access in our houses is not guaranteed. 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!

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.

MICHEL STRIEKWOLD purchased this Villa in 2006

It has inspired us to look into purchasing a home like it in Mexico. Breathtaking views and whale watching were an everyday occurrence. The food was wonderful and the house was very clean and well laid out. The manager I corresponded with, Michel, was great to deal with and made our stay very easy. We will likely go back next year and get the Home next to this one in addition, so we can have even more people down with us

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Amazing!! Could not have been better!

Michel , thank you for everything and to Ismael, Vicki Sonja and the rest of the gang at Punta El Custudio....Wow! Truly Magical....

                                                                      Owner's Response:


                                                                      Thank you for your kind words, and good to hear that you had such a great time!

                                                                      We do think we offer something amazing at Punta el Custodio, but in the end it's up to you, our guests, to see for yourself..

                                                                      Thanks again for staying with us, we hope to see you back in the future!


                                                                      Best vacation ever!

                                                                      Michel S.

                                                                      I can't say enough about our stay at casa Celeste. The house is amazing, everything is of high quality, the staff did everything (and more!) to make us feel comfortable. The small community is very well taken care of, one of the most beautiful places you will see. The estuary with unspoiled beach at playa tortugas beach, for miles and miles, the community pool under the 400 years old tree is majestic. Last but not least, be sure to take the food plan while you are staying at the house, it's delicious, you won't be hungry!

                                                                      Beautiful !

                                                                      Eric & Janelle M.

                                                                      Amazing home, excellent food, quiet and remote . Will definitely return.


                                                                      Casa Celeste is a perfect location for a decompression vacation. The property invites you to relax and has all the amenities to keep you relaxed throughout the stay. Our maid/chef, Vicky, was wonderful. You would be doing yourself a disservice to not get the inclusive package. If you do get antsy, a quick trip across the estuary opens you up to miles and mile of unspoiled beach. Absolutely gorgeous. I have already suggested this property to several of my friends for their vacation plans.

                                                                      Go to Michel's website all-inclusive-vacations-Mexico.com and check out the drone video. You will see what I mean about the solitude and serenity of this community.

                                                                      On a Whole New Level

                                                                      Melissa J.

                                                                      After reading all of the reviews prior to booking this villa our expectations were very high. Even at that, our family was overwhelmed by the beauty and extraordinary magnificence of this property and the genuine nature of the people who work for it.

                                                                      Our experience right from the booking stage through to our return home was genuinely comfortable. Michel, the property manager, was very professional and attentive to our questions and requests. He truly went above and beyond to make sure everyone in our group had a positive experience. He also personally checked in on us during our stay and at our request took us for a tour of the community.

                                                                      At Casa Celeste the village felt very safe. The indoor and outdoor furniture and bedding were very comfortable. The villa and pool were clean and well maintained. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The cook made fresh delicious food for us and always made sure there were lots of drinks and snacks available. The view of the ocean from the infinity pool, watching Pelicans fly by at eye level, the sunset and the brilliant stars at night are visions we will never forget. Perfect experience in every way.

                                                                      When we return to Casa Celeste we will set up a roaming data plan on our cell phones again (this was very helpful for navigating our way to the village from the airport and during intermittent wifi connection at the villa) and a strong bug repellent (one of the the ten days of our stay was overcast and muggy - this is when the noseeums came out - the other days the ocean breeze and sunshine made them nonexistent).

                                                                      Looking forward to our return to Casa Celeste!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Melissa, I'm glad you had such a good time at Casa Celeste!

                                                                      Some people think our area is infested with little mosquitos, the noseeums. This is really not the case. There are days that they appear, for only a short while during sunrise or sunset, but as you mention, it's only now and then.

                                                                      We hope to see you back!

                                                                      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.
