Property description

Welcome to Cielo Villa, a colorful and peaceful vacation home conveniently located overlooking Cane Garden Bay and close to all the beaches, shopping, and fun activities that you wish to enjoy on your Caribbean vacation!

**A quote from our latest guest-- "We had an AMAZING time!!! All the rooms were beautiful, and we enjoyed every single day, especially when we chartered with Mitch! Everyone had such a wonderful time and loved your beautiful villa. One of our friends said, "felt more like home than (his) apartment ever could".

Cielo Villa has a unique location and vibe that we have not found anywhere else in the Caribbean. We are truly happy to be service oriented and our dedicated on island manager adds joy and laughter to our peaceful atmosphere and total privacy. Many of our guests have found that there is no better place for a relaxing vacation and come back year after year. Come see why!

We think that once you enter through Cielo’s welcoming gate, you will think you stepped into paradise! The villa was designed in the traditional West Indian manner in which sleeping and living rooms are in separate pavilions that surround the sparking private pool and lush garden courtyards. The views really do ‘knock your socks off’!

The charming and colorful living room cannot really be called a room—it is more a pavilion poolside than a traditional room. Your flat screen TV and stereo speakers are located here and you can, once again, see out to the pool, gardens, and ocean from any of the seats. Evenings are really relaxing with the lamps’ glow and the pool lights, stars, breezes, and music.

One of the nicest things about Cielo’s kitchen is that it is open. Its doors and window openings (not windows, but full openings that are closed at night with charming wooden shutters) connect you with the gardens, dining and living areas, the entire pool terrace, and constant views.

You will love the pantry, full of colorful fiesta ware dishes and any type of serving pieces or glassware you could wish. The kitchen has all the kitchen appliances you use at home: wall oven, gas cook top, dishwasher, fridge, and microwave. We do have our priorities in place and offer you two drip coffee machines, a bean grinder, a French press, and an ‘old’ school’ percolator. And a tea pot!

The 5 bedrooms suites all have ceiling fans, a/c (except our Palm suite which is so breezy, we have to shut the windows at night!), comfortable beds and chairs, balconies, terraces, decks, candles and plenty of reading lamps, and en suite bathrooms with fluffy towels, etc.
Bougainvillea Suite: Enjoy this cozy king suite, which is tucked away on the second floor in our main pavilion. French doors open to its balcony and comfortable hammock. The balcony overlooks the entrance courtyard with its banana trees, palms, and hibiscus, and allows really pretty views of the mountains to our east.
Palm Suite: You have total privacy in this separate bi level pavilion, which sits on the side of the mountain off the dining area of the house. It consists of a breezy sitting room above a sunny queen bedroom. French doors open from the bedroom to the large private deck, with its hammock and potted palms. The cut coral stairway curves from the deck up to the pool terrace.
Oasis Suite: Our master king bedroom is located in the second level of Cielo’s main pavilion. The suite is spacious and has a separate dressing area and large bath. Ten foot wide French doors open to the large shaded balcony, which overlooks the swimming pool and the endless ocean views.
Coral Cottage: This queen bedroom suite is cozy and quiet. It has a hidden terrace located at the top of curved stone stairs from the pool patio, and a really private outdoor shower with more stone work, palm plants, and teak bench.
Calypso Suite: This welcoming first floor suite includes lots of closet space, a dressing area, and the versatility to be a king or double twin room. French doors open to its shady covered sitting area near the pool terrace and it has the same fantastic views that Oasis enjoys.

“Our family has traveled all over the Caribbean for the past 20 years. Cielo provided far and away the best experience we’ve ever had. There was no ‘take the money and run’ feeling with this vacation— Nancy and her staff could not have been nicer— nothing was asking too much. We found the island and its people charming, and the house perfect for our needs-and with a view like that, we needed little else!”

'Our family considers our stay at Cielo Villa the best trip we have ever done! And that is the truth!'

Car: Recommended

Cielo Villa has one of the very best locations and settings of any rental villa on Tortola!

The villa sits alone on a hillside with truly stunning views.

We are a 3 minute drive from Brewer's Bay beach and some of our guests like to walk that hill for morning exercise.

Cane Garden Bay is only a 5 minute drive down the hill and offers a lovely beach with quite a few charming restaurant/bars for lunches, dinners, and happy hours, as well as live music 7 nights a week.

Cane Garden Bay also has a small grocery store and small shops and outdoor local craft stalls for browsing.

Road Town, with its large grocery stores and shops, is less than a 15 minute ride, and one can drive to some of our most romantic restaurants in less time.

If one pictures the island of Tortola as a cute Gecko lizard, Cielo Villa’s location and getting around makes more sense…

The West End ferry dock is at the head of the Gecko and the airport is at the tail.

The industrial plants, apartment buildings, shopping strip malls, grocery stores, ferry docks, and marinas are located along the South side of the Gecko’s body. The capital city, Road Town, is located midway on the south side of the Gecko.

The beaches, Rain Forest, surfing locations, small restaurants, and beach bars are located on the north side of the Gecko’s body. The shoreline is sandy beach, and the views of the shoreline and our other islands stunning. Cielo is located midway on the north side of the Gecko, right above Cane Garden Bay.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My four children and I first visited the British Virgin Islands in 2001 after searching for a safe and relaxed island where we could immerse ourselves in the Caribbean's natural beauty and peace. We found that and so much more on Tortola, one of the few islands that is still removed from the hustle that the Caribbean has become. One trip was all it took for us to fall in love with the island and house. I know the island well, and with my amazing manager, Janet, do everything we can to introduce you to the activities, places, and events that best serve your individual vacation needs and provide you with a lovely home away from home. It is our heartfelt wish to share Cielo's refreshing vibe and peacefulness with you, and that our attention to detail, and commitment to your pleasure and comfort, assures you of a carefree holiday. Our Motto is, “An inexhaustible good nature is one of the most precious gifts of heaven...” ~Washington Irving~

Cane Garden Bay also has a small grocery store and small shops and outdoor local craft stalls for browsing.
