About Celeste Good

When my husband and I decided to built our dream home in the DR we quickly settle on Cabarete. We liked the peace , security and tranquility of our community yet we are less than 5 minutes from the active town of Cabarete. The area is well known for water sports and beach front restaurants.

It is the best place to vacation if you want action and relaxation! There is something to please everyone.

Celeste Good purchased this villa in 2007

Why Celeste Good chose Dominican Republic North Coast

Villa Celeste is in a magical spot with amazing ocean views.

We really like the peace and privacy in our small resort and yet the proximity to active Cabarete. It is the perfect place to get away.

You get to enjoy the best of both worlds! The Small town of Cabarete really comes to life in the evenings . The restaurants and the ocean front bars are a treat . I really enjoy getting a table right on the sand and have dinner under the stars . Dominicans love a Bonfire, so do not be surprise to find one on Cabarete Beach

What makes this villa unique

We really like to get up in the morning and open the drapes to capture the stunning ocean vistas!

A cup of coffee in the terrace overlooking the beach is a great way to begin the day .

Our housekeeper will prepare and serve breakfast right on the terrace as we enjoy the early morning sun.

We do not mind being pampered. The friendly staff at Hideaway Beach is there to take care of us and to insure we have a pleasant stay.

I really enjoy the privacy , relaxation I feel in my Villa, but most of all, Villa Celeste has a view to remember...

Paradise Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your villa! It was obvious the villa is very well maintained and was spotless when we arrived. The pool and hot tub were clean and everything was in perfect order. The amenities included really made it seem like home.

Thank you for your communication and attention to our questions leading up to our stay. Everything was stocked when we arrived and ready to go. Your tips on things to do were really helpful and we even enjoyed a bonfire on the beach made by security. ALL of the security staff were very helpful and available at all times.

The villa is very beautiful and the location is perfect...you should be very proud of what you have there! The pictures(although beautiful) do not do this property justice and we were surprised to find it even better than we expected!

Chef Arsenio was awesome and the food was fantastic! He was very helpful with any and all requests we had around preparation of the food and the use of certain seasonings.

What will stand out in our minds just as much as the beautiful villa and wonderful location is your impeccable staff. Dorka and Cathy were phenomenal! They did a fabulous job keeping everything clean and straightened. They were very respectful of us...if we were in a certain room they would go to another room to clean and then come back later. It was amazing...they were never in the way or hardly seen but kept everything immaculate during our stay! Breakfasts and lunches were always ready on time and delicious.

One of our absolute highlights of the entire trip was meeting Franklin! He has phenomenal interpersonal skills and was like an old friend within the first 5 minutes we met him. HE DEFINITELY made our stay much more enjoyable! He was extremely helpful and provided us anything we needed while we were there. His help with communicating with other staff and security was very beneficial. Franklin is a very special person and I know you are thrilled to have him! We made an instant friend and we plan on staying in touch with him in the future. He took our kids between the ages of 24-27 and ventured out with them and showed them a great time! They fell in love with Franklin just as we did! We never had a concern and we knew they were in good hands! We highly recommend acquiring the services of Franklin!

It truly was a paradise vacation in every sense of the term and we definitely plan on returning in the future!

Sincerely,

The Taylors

Very good property, excellent views, some maintenance needed

  • 4 of 5

We had an great time at the Villa. We were 2 families (4 adults, 6 kids). The view of the property is incredible and sunsets are magnificent. The house is in very good shape, clean and tidy. Maintenance is needed in all Air Condition equipment. Service provided by the local people was very good. The beach was not as clean as we had expected (plastic bottles, and some trash here and there). The sea, blue and transparent, is a little bit dangerous in this spot (rocks and strong currents), so you should be careful when going into the water. The surroundings (out of the closed community) are not great. This place is clearly not La Romana or Punta Cana. You should expect no availability of services and places to hang around or emergency quality health services if needed. Security seems to be an issue since armed security was all around the property, and one guy sitting in the back of our backyard 24hs a day, but we had no incidents at all and everything was smooth.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you and your family had a great time in the villa and enjoyed the magical views. The Cabarete area is well known for water sports and has a lot to offer to travelers . We have everything from zip lines to monkey jungle and a large variety of restaurants and bars line up the beach just 5 minutes from the villa . There is plenty of action outside our peaceful resort . Since our beach is almost private there is some debri washed way by the tides . I always recommend using caution when swimming on the beach , the wave action is always changing with the weather systems. The security guards keeps any intruders from wondering into the properties , our guess always feel safe and secured . Security guards are costumary in all resorts in the DR . In the event of a medical emergency a high quality emergency room and inpatient facility with several US trained doctors 10 minutes from our resort . I am sorry if you had any air conditioning issues . Our technician is on call 24/7 to help . Thanks for choosing Villa Celeste for your family vacation .

Just to be perfectly clear.... this vacation is the Best!

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited Villa Celeste at Hideaway Beach very near Cabarete, Dominican Republic, this past week.

We had the most relaxing, personally tuned and cared for vacation of our lives.

We were transported professionally to Villa Celeste, greeted by Familia Security, the local reastauranteurs, groundskeepers, and friends of the family. We felt like family to these local people and their community.

Each day we found new adventures:

Our sons found great daily surf conditions 4 – 10 foot.

We rode horses on many days of our vacation. Beautiful horses reside at the Seahorse ranch a few minutes away from home. The horse rides are fun and well overseen by experts.

We visited many local places of interest with Franklin: our driver, guide, and friend. “Just to be perfectly clear, we are 150%” going to find fun for your family.

Dorka and her helpers take care of all household needs from 9-5 including breakfast and lunch: American and/or Dominican style. They are sweet, respectful and one can trust that each item will be in its same place after meticulous cleaning has happened.

Familia takes care of the security and grounds with a keen eye. There is is a serene local beach with a local family atmosphere.

The home, Villa Celeste, remains a piece of local beauty. ~ 6,000 square feet with a King upper and lower Master Suite, with 3 other bedrooms, each with its own refrigerator, TV, and A/C. The vestibule, porches, terraces, pool, and all the grounds are impeccable.

The beach, surf, local restaurant, and family atmosphere are great.

The family of helpers at the Villa Celeste remain the crown jewel of this vacation.

We can’t wait to come back home to the Dominican Republic, Franklin, and Villa Celeste!

Bryan, Monica, Gail, Bryan, Celi, and Alex Cooper

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing Villa in Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

We had really great time in Villa Celeste. The place is in a great shape, well maintained and groomed. People are very nice and helpful including housekeeping, security, drivers. Definitely recomend in-house cooking option, just don't forget to learn a bit of Spanish to get the most of it :)

The beach is just a few steps from the villa, very clean and very private. The only thing to be aware is that the tide is quite strong so be careful especially if with young children. Thank you!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your family had a great vacation . We also enjoy our visits to the villa and feel so fortunate to be in such an amazing spot and cared for by great staff . We enjoy the very private beach on calm days but exercise caution on stormy days specially if there is a tropical weather system around like right before you arrived . Agree with you young children should always be supervised . Thank you again for choosing Villa Celeste
