  • PERF family vaycay

    "Angela's condo was the perfect location for our family of 5 with 3 young adults. The description and photos are correct. She has lovely taste and provides the amenities you would have at a resort: bathrobes, soaps, pool towels, etc. It is spacious and well appointed allowing the 17 year old to have his own space, for once, while the 20 something girls could juggle working remotely with pool, beach and adventure activities. Ana, the housekeeper, made it all work! It took some organizing with regard to planning and food shopping but allowed us to eat-in for most meals. Admittedly I was a bit hesitant about wiring money off as payment but Angela graciously allowed me to contact 2 former renters and they provided the assurances we needed. The location is remote relative to restaurants and even a coffee shop so you need a car. There is a restaurant on property but we never tried it. The beach has a barrier coral wall so it is not open water for swimming- more like a small pond. You can drive to the adjacent beach to get to the open water. Angela helped us arrange a day excursion to PlayaTao and golf and her on- property assistant set us up with ScapePark for zip lining and a hike and dinner reservations. They were all very accommodating and helpful. It was voted the BEST vaycay and my family preferred it to a resort - they liked the flexibility and freedom. As noted by other reviewers, this is not a 'hip and happening' location. That was appealing to us but might not work for others based on the ages of the children. There were a few other people at the pool but mostly it is quiet. The pool staff was very pleasant. Thanks to Angela and Ana who made this a vaycay to top the charts."

  • Wonderful Retreat

    "My wife and I just returned from an 11-day stay at Villa Celeste. This villa is very nicely built and has nice decor and amenities. The wood doors on the cabinetry and closets, combined with the furniture and wall paintings, made the villa warm and friendly. The view from the back patio looking out over the pool, the backyard, and then the ocean behind is simply fantastic. It was a scene we wanted to bring back home with us. Also, we really enjoyed the privacy of the backyard, the pool and the jacuzzi. Franklyn, the driver that was always available to help us when we traveled away from the villa for sightseeing or dinners, became our friend quickly. His friendly smile and demeanor made it easy for us to become quick friends. Dorka was very attentive to maintaining a clean villa. One of our primary needs is for a vacation home to be clean. Dorka was excellent. Villa Celeste is the type of home one wishes to return to time and time again. Chez Arsenio's was a short walk from the villa. Excellent food, a friendly staff, and very reasonable prices made this a regular stop for us. In Cabarete, our favorite restaurant is Bliss. If you go to Cabarete for dinner, this place is definitely one to visit."
