Sharon Tognietti-Weber purchased this villa in 2010
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
The location, layout, amenities and customer service were beyond our (party of 6) expectations! A very beautiful, clean and well-maintained property. We have already recommended the villa to other people. There are several good restaurants in PV. One we enjoyed was Barcelona Tapas. Delicious dinner with an excellent view! We enjoyed diving and snorkeling at Islas Marietas with Silenr World Divers.
Villa Azul Celeste is absolutely one of the most beautiful ocean homes in the perfect location just outside of downtown Puerto Vallarta. The view of the ocean from every room, the elegant yet cozy furnishings and the authentic decorations surpassed my dreamiest vacation imagination. The staff makes you feel at home immediately and also part of the Villa family, which makes this type of vacation unique. This is a 5-Star experience with all the luscious colors and rich flavors of Mexico! Maria is one of the greatest chefs who prepares your meals daily. To have her in your vacation home, cooking to your delight beats any fine restaurant in Vallarta. The infinity swimming pool and private beach are gorgeous! The privacy of this location is awesome but you're only 15 minutes from the center of Puerto Vallarta if you're looking to shop, see the city or try a local tour . This is the perfect destination for groups, families and even a romantic get-away with that special someone. Everything is taken care of from having fresh guacamole waiting for you when you arrive to the immaculate cleanliness of the property every day. Flor, Raul and Juan take care of every detail so you’re comfortable and enjoying paradise during your stay. The owners provide all the information you need to really get to know the best of Vallarta or just enjoy the best of Vallarta from the comforts of the gorgeous Villa! You won't want to leave but you'll definitely return to this "Villa Dulce Villa"!
One of the best PV vacations ever ! So very comfortable and relaxing.
We were impressed with the food quality as well as the bedding and linens.
Having your laundry done daily was a real treat.
Such a very comfortable atmosphere and the staff could not have been more welcoming. the Mexican folk art throughout the villa was fabulous ! So happy to have made the choice to stay at villa Azul celeste.
The villa was positively perfect. Beautiful wall art, beautiful decorative accent pieces scattered about on beautiful, handmade tables contribute to the ambience.
The kitchen had an amazing assortment of beautiful glassware, dishes and pottery which was enjoyed at breakfast and dinner daily.
The seating areas in every room....including bedrooms, dining areas, living areas and pool areas were very comfortable.
The villa's interior was beautiful and comfortable and rivaled only by the views of nature from every balcony and the ocean from the pool area.
Our every need was met by Flor, Juan and Raul.....they were most accommodating without being intrusive......so very pleasant and warm and gracious!
Maria, the cook prepared wonderful meals everyday. The presentation was so beautiful,we found ourselves scrambling for our IPhones or iPads or cameras to take a picture of every meal before we ate.
Truly a wonderful holiday!
Thank you for sharing your home with us!
