I didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

I am SO happy that we decided to stay at Villa Azul Celeste. We vacation regularly and by the end of our vacation I am always ready to go home - not this time. I truly wanted to stay and live at the villa forever! It felt like home immediately when we walked in. The staff is FANTASTIC! Maria is an excellent cook and so agreeable. She will get you whatever you request and provide you with the receipts. Flor kept the villa clean and did our laundry every day! Juan and Raul were so friendly and really kept the pool and outside areas very comfortable. I really cannot stay enough about them. I've been home for only a few days and already want to book another vacation. Stay during whale season and you can regularly see whales from the living areas and pool area. It's amazing. Thank you for everything Maria, Flor, Juan, and Raul! We will be back!

To Sharon and to the entire staff at Celeste thank you for an amazing 10 days. Traveling with a baby can be challenging and sometimes relaxing is difficult ... But the Villa is a perfect option for a family with a young child! Our baby slept in the guest room downstairs leading to the pool area while we enjoyed the pool and sun while keeping an eye on him. The staff was so accommodating! Maria's cooking was excellent and we enjoyed everything! She also did all of our shopping which was marvelous so we had more time to spend relaxing. Flor the housekeeper managed to get every single stain out of my baby's clothing!!! So appreciated having clean clothing during our trip . The views from all rooms in the house are stunning! Raul and Juan were wonderful as well, there to help with anything we needed from picking up something for the fridge we were running low on, adjusting the pool temp and so much more. Having a private beach was great. We love privacy and having only a few people to share the beach with was heaven. Guests also have access to kayaks and snorkeling gear which my husband loved!

This is not our first time in PV but it is truly our favorite! We already miss it! We plan to return! Highly recommended ... No need to think about it ...just book and enjoy!!

Perfect week at Stunning Villa Azul Celeste

  • 5 of 5

Villa Azul Celeste was everything that we had hoped for - beautiful and luxurious home with plenty of space for all, stunning views of the ocean from all levels, easy access to a very private beach, and a staff that took care of all of our needs and desires. Maria cooked up such fabulous meals for us daily that our children didn't want to go into town at all; Raul and Flor kept the villa clean at all times; and Juan was the best who was always there to help with anything, whether it was launching kayaks out to the ocean, grabbing an ice box with drinks for an afternoon at the beach, getting an extra bottle of special tequila or beer from town, etc., etc. We had the most relaxing week of eating well, lounging at the pool, visiting the beach, and enjoying this spectacular villa and vista. We absolutely hope to return!! Thank you, Sharon, for sharing your stunning villa with us.

Beautiful villa, Amazing staff, Mexican Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Villa Azul Celeste. The villa is beautifully decorated in a traditional Mexican motif. Sharon (the owner) was very helpful responding to questions about local attractions and restaurants. All three bedrooms are spacious with wonderful views of the ocean and/or infinity edge pool. The palatial master suite includes an enormous bathroom with a private open air shower overlooking the Pacific. There is access to a small private beach with snorkeling directly in front of the villa. The staff is AMAZING, so friendly and accommodating; Maria created the daily menus with our guidance and prepared delicious meals, Flora tidied up our bedrooms, and Juan and Raul assisted with meals and daily upkeep of the villa. The location is very private but only a short drive to town. The bedrooms are air-conditioned while the public areas are open air; fans are provided, but for those travelers sensitive to heat I would recommend avoiding the hotter months.

Cannot Imagine Staying Anywhere Else in PV

  • 5 of 5

I booked this villa nearly 2 years before going away for our 10 year anniversary. As we drove from the airport to the villa, I was suddenly nervous that I didn't do enough research (I did an obscene amount of research) ... and what if it wasn't everything we had hoped for our big, romantic, celebratory trip ALONE, away from our twins.

As we pulled up, Juan was there to greet us and threw my 60+lb bag on his bag and went down the steps. This in itself was insanely impressive.When we walked into Villa Azul Celeste I felt like I could exhale. It is amazing. It is everything you would want your own Mexican villa to look like. It is the perfect, luxurious representation of the surroundings it nestles itself within.

Maria, the house chef, is not only incredibly sweet, she is also extremely talented in the kitchen! Every meal prepared was fantastic and authentic. We treasured our meals in, enjoying not only her cooking but also getting to know her better. And really, everyone that works at the villa is extremely kind and helpful.

Every room in the home is beautiful and offers an incredible view. I've never taken more showers than I have at Villa Azul Celeste. The master bathroom offers an open air shower that will leave you never wanting to go home.

There is not one bad thing to say. Our 10 year anniversary could not have been anymore romantic and we hope to return with the kids next time. If you are on the fence, jump on over!! It will NOT disappoint.

About Sharon Tognietti-Weber

Originally from California and after vacationing in Mexico for many years we decided to move to Puerto Vallarta.

Sharon Tognietti-Weber purchased this villa in 2010

Why Sharon Tognietti-Weber chose South Zone

We fell in love upon walking into this villa for the first time. The pictures do not do it justice. You must see for yourself. When the villa is not occupied we enjoy it every chance we get.

What makes this villa unique

This vila is set on Los Gatos Beach. One of the only safe swimming beaches without a hotel or condo complex attached. A private cove with only a handful of homes with access.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Stayed here for the first time and I can assure you it won't be the last! I have traveled over 50 countries and have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world, countless resorts, villa's, condos, B&Bs, etc and the Villa Azul Celeste is now my favorite!! I didn't think the pictures could be lived up to but was surprised to find the pictures didn't really do it justice. You just can't capture the whole experience in photographs. From the swimming pool and the comfortable lounge chairs in the main room over looking the ocean we watched jumping Whales, Dolphins, Tuna, Mana rays and too many other fish and birds to name. Every day was a show in the ocean and the Margaritas made it that much more fun! The local art that adores the villa was a special surprise but I have to say my favorite part was the staff. If I had help like that at my house I would never leave home! Great food and I loved the fresh avocados. Was impressed how clean the entire place was and couldn't believe how fast the staff cleaned up the sand I tracked in from the beach. Can't say enough about my experience. My only complaint was not being able to stay longer. Bravo to the all the people who make that place happen!
