  • Truly amazing views & service

    "Thank you Penny & Ricky for the most amazing week with our family! The villa has outstanding views, from every room. Our kids loved spending the morning in the pool, and the afternoon on the beach. I don't think it's possible to be much more service oriented than you were-you really did assist us in SO many ways-dinner reservations, car service on Nevis, masseuse at the villa, lost luggage, etc... Thank you. The villa is set up for three couples, but it worked really well for our family too. We had plenty of space, and each had an area to retreat to. The kitchen was equipped very nicely, and the kids loved the pass through window to the pool/patio area. The beachfront lounge, with it's honor bar was fantastic!!! We found lots of shells, enjoyed making sandcastles & watching the kite surfers. We will be back!!!"

  • Top of the Mountain Retreat

    "We enjoyed our stay in St. Thomas and our " retreat on top of the mountain". The cottage was clean and well maintained. Any problems were dealt with immediately. There was plenty of cooking supplies, towels, sheets, etc. The washing machine and dryer were a bonus. We enjoyed the porch over looking the bay, and watched the cruise lines and cargo boats come in each day and leave at night. I wished there'd been a telescope so we could see the names of the ships as they sailed by us. We went to the Puelbo supermarket for our food supplies. It was were the locals go, and is off the mountain and near downtown. The customers and cashiers were very accommodating and willing to guide us in finding items. Everyone on the island was willing to help the "tourist". We found the beach at Corky to be the best place to snorkel. They have chairs (for rent), food, and a great beach! Servers even come out to the beach to sell drinks and food. Many offer free drink "tastes". We went so many times that we learned every ones name and, of course, got better service. Red Hook is an area where you get the ferry over to St. John and has a lot of eating and tourist attractions. Tuto is another area where the Walgreens and K-Mart are. Driving on the "wrong" side of the road was a little strange and took concentration! You could always use the "taxis". Iggies is a restaurant near our Mountain Retreat, right on the water offering drinks and good food. Go spend some time on St. Thomas and at the "Mountain Retreat", you will love it!"

  • Second stay and planning a third...

    "This week-long stay found us back and enjoying ourselves from the moment we got off the plane having gotten our bearings from our first trip. Taking Judith's advice on car rental allowed us to enjoy Maho, Marigot and Phillipsburg with ease. Fave beach? Mullet Bay Beach, barely 15 minutes from the villa by car. Some resorts feel like they are just that. But here, we felt as in a home away from home and right on the sea! Forget resorts where maybe you can glimpse the sea; here the home is literally on the edge of the sea and from the verandah you can see, hear and smell the surf crashing on the shore. The pool area has been nicely upgraded and is lit for a night swim. This community/enclave consists of about 23 homes and has an exclusive feeling to it without being over-the-top. Having been there twice, I can assure you that the cleanliness and condition of the home is consistent and reliable. This means much to those of us who have had our hearts sink when opening the door to less-than-pleasing conditions. That just won't happen here. Simple, tidy, clean with enough touches that let you know the owner has you and your enjoyment in mind. My Significant Other, who was also here with me the first trip and who has more experience than I holidaying says this home is her fave of all places she has stayed in the Caribbean...and that is saying a lot! Sylma is the local lady to call who, aside from keeping the property well-managed and clean, can assist with other issues when you may be unsure of who to call. While the airport is close enough to observe planes coming in, there is no noise issue. Indeed, it really is a quiet and relaxing home. Being just off the road, it is very low in both vehicle and foot traffic.And this enhances the privacy and calm aspect as you can imagine. I should also add that it has a safe feeling to it, always a concern when trying out a new place to relax. In closing, I am not surprised this home is popular and books well. This villa deserves it!"

  • FABULOUS VACATION!

    "We had a fantastic 2 week stay at Villa Celeste. From the time we arrived at the airport until the day we departed, we had the most amazing experience. The staff was, bar none, the best! Dorka and Mary promptly arrived every morning with a smile and a hug. They wasted no time in getting busy and cooking fabulous food. They kept the place in tip top shape, clean as a whistle. Franklin, our driver, was a hoot! He is available whenever you need and speaks very good english which really helped us! We had private chef services from Arsenio and Jaime, DELICIOUS! I highly recommend the seafood pasta with garlic and white sauce! If you go to the Arsenio's (very short walk), the Banana Mama's are addicting! We hit the happy hour there a few times (or more!) We ventured out a several times to Cabarete, Sosua and Puerto Plata but spent the majority of the time at the villa either lounging by the pool or on the beach, enjoying the view. We had a very good experience in the restaurants we visited. It was the off season but the weather was perfect, it was hot and obviously humid but well tolerated with the breeze and the pool. We were tempted to stay another week! Thank you to your wonderful staff for taking such good care of us. We wanted to bring them all home with us! We would highly recommend Villa Celeste if you're planning a trip to the Dominican Republic."
