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 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

This was an absolutely amazing house perched above the ocean with 180+ views

  • 5 of 5

Each morning we would awake with the sound of the crashing waves no more than 200 feet below us. Our patio was quite private as we had our coffee overlooking the beautiful sea spread before us under the cabana. Our housekeeper would show up just before 8am and make the breakfast we had discussed the day before.

We would lounge or make travel plans for the nearest village or tourist beach returning in the early afternoon for the comida prepared by our housekeeper. We would then slip into the infinity pool with a soothing drink and admire the ocean below us once again as the sun would lazily begin drift toward the horizon.

The four bedroom house was immaculate and the housekeeper kept it that way the entire week we were there. Everything in its place and all the dishes put away. The central eating/living room is open to the outside leading to the infinity pool and cabana area.

Our housekeeper spoke little English so luckily my girlfriend, born in Mexico and fluent in Spanish but I doubt that would have mattered.

We had an incredible vacation and I would highly recommend Casa Celeste.

Beautiful oasis as soon as you pass through the gates

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this for 8 days and could not be happier with the experience. 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

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

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!

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 and check out the drone video. You will see what I mean about the solitude and serenity of this community.

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.
