Hi there,
I'm Kristy Petrillo.

I’m excited that you’ve found two of my favorite places on earth, Blue Ridge, Georgia and Cabarete in the Dominican Republic. I can’t wait for you to see for yourself why I love it as much as I do. I’ve split my time between these slices of paradise for almost 15 years.

I love living life to the fullest and savoring the many joys this wonderful world has to offer. I enjoy traveling to exotic destinations near and far, sipping Moscow Mules or spicy margaritas, and noshing on delectable artisan cheeses. 


l go kiteboarding and surfing in the Dominican Republic whenever I can, and recently participated in an amazing entrepreneurs networking group called Mai Tai, through which I had the incredible opportunity to meet Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Airlines. 


His Necker Island Resort and Virgin Limited Edition properties are an inspiration in how to provide world-class vacation experiences to guests. These concepts I have applied to my own rentals right here in Blue Ridge and in the Dominican Republic. 

The Kristy Collection is the culmination of a career identifying what people love, and finding a way to connect them to it through the inviting and enjoyable experiences that my properties provide.

A muse for inspiration is the fact that I love nice hotels. There’s such an invigorating feeling of walking into a tastefully decorated hotel room with all the right finishes and touches. I’ve introduced these finishing touches into every aspect of The Kristy Collection. But I also love coming back to my relaxing home on Lake Blue Ridge and settling into the comfort and familiarity it offers. 


I strive with each property to meld the luxury of five-star hotels with the comforts of home to create an experience that is equal parts refined/upscale and inviting/welcoming. Each of my properties is uniquely located—lakes, oceans, river, creeks— and offers tremendous entertainment options. You’ll enjoy an exquisite blend of 5-star luxury and homegrown comfort, so finally, you can truly have your cake and eat it too!


Thanks for visiting The Kristy Collection, and let me know how I can help make your visit to any of my properties as fantastic and memorable as it possibly can be.
