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!
