About Celeste Bailey

Born in Hilo, Hawaii, water was always peaceful to me, but the sand and salt became very unappealing when we had children. LAKE LIFE gave me the water, amazing sunsets and adventure without the salt and sand.

Celeste Bailey purchased this condo in 2003

Why Celeste Bailey chose Smith Mountain Lake

We have always loved vacationing at SML. There is plenty to do in the area since the lake is nestled between mountains, national and state parks and wineries.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite things to do are rent a pontoon boat and jet ski, pack a picnic lunch and cruise the lake. We love going to The Cliffs and watching. There's just something about the taste of the pizza at the Pizza Pub at Bridgewater or maybe it's just the boat ride and working up the appetite. We love going to the sand beach at the state park to get a just enough sand in our toes.. Walking the wooded trails with our dogs is a plus too. Our teenagers hang out at the put-in area below at the marina. They swim there and jump off the dock. A half mile walk toward Parkway Marina (turn right at the exit) offers a different view of the lake and is a great place for really pretty pictures and weddings! Wineries abound in the area. Our favorite is the Peaks of Otter Winery.

So in love with this little slice of Heaven on SML.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a couple years ago and couldn't wait to come back! Celeste has been the most gracious hostess we've ever rented from. The condo is always clean and welcoming and she goes above and beyond to ensure our stay is comfortable. The marina below the property is under construction and we were worried about using a slip without eyeshot at the nearby Parkway Marina but, it was no big deal. Parkway Marina offers boat slips and trailer parking for minimal fees. They typically close around 7pm but, access to your boat is attainable if you want to take a sunset cruise. Won't be an issue soon since the marina below the condo. is almost completed. We love coming back to this condo. It has everything we need and more. It's one of the bigger units in the complex and has the most perfect view of the lake. Any question I had was answered quickly via text or email. Much appreciated when you're planning a lengthy stay. Thanks so much Celeste for being so kind and accommodating for our vacation!!! Can't wait to come back!!!

Nice townhouse

  • 5 of 5

Very isolated townhouse for those who are looking for peace and quiet. The townhouse was very clean and has everything you need for the stay. There is construction going on next door, so if you are not a morning person, you might want to wait until the construction is over.

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

I stayed 2 nights at this beautiful condo at Belview Bay. When you first pull in you can see that it sits right on the lake so you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets from the back porch. As soon as you open the door you are welcomed by a homey atmosphere that you wouldn't get from a hotel. Everything was clean and updated, from the Jacuzzi tub to the hardwood floors. It was the perfect size for me and my son, although you could easily add more people with the bed that pulls out from the leather couch. The only problem I had was that my son and I couldn't stay longer. For the reasonable price I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to vacation at Smith mountain lake!

Affordable Condo right on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at this wonderful condo! First off it's right on the lake. You can easily take a walk down to the water or watch the sunset from the balcony. As for the condo itself, everything inside is updated, clean, and beautiful. From the Jacuzzi tub to the hardwood floors. It way way better than staying at a hotel and very affordable. The size was perfect for me and my son, but you could easily add more people on the pull out couch bed. The only problem I had was that we couldn't stay longer! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I’ve never taken the time to write or post information about our vacation. However, I felt the need to share with others about our perfect getaway at Belview Bay in Celeste Bailey’s condo.

Let me start by saying that we have stayed at Belview Bay for many years at several of the other units. This condo is our favorite and truly exceptional. All of the rooms are extremely clean, spacious, uplifting color schemes, and have exquisite furnishings. The kitchen was very well equipped with dishes, utensils, and cookware. In addition, as an end unit it has more privacy compared to the other units. As the balcony is one of our most treasured moments, the nice furnishings provided us an opportunity to enjoy our morning coffee and watch the sunrise. It was the perfect getaway and very relaxing.

As you can see, I can’t say enough positive things about this hidden gem. Although we were sad to leave, our only hope is that Celeste and her family will continue to be so kind and generous to share their condo with us. Thank you again for helping to make family memories that will last life time.

Thanks,

B.Deal
