Property description

This remarkable and charming villa is comprised of 5 pavilions, tiled pathways, gardens, terraces, decks, balconies, and pool patio gathered behind a curved gate, sided by stone walls, and dropping off to spectacular ocean views.
We think that once you enter through Cielo’s welcoming gate, you will think you stepped into paradise! The villa was designed as a private compound in which sleeping and living rooms are in separate pavilions that surround the sparking private pool and are set in the tropical garden courtyards. The views are spectacular and there are no photos to do them justice...

The charming and colorful living pavilion is poolside and your flat screen TV and stereo speakers are located here, and one can see out to the pool, gardens, and ocean from any of the seating. Evenings are magically relaxing with the lamps’ glow and the pool lights, stars, breezes, and music.

Cielo’s kitchen is completely open. It connects the chefs with the gardens, built in grill station, dining and living areas, the entire pool terrace, and constant views.

Guests love the pantry, full of colorful fiesta ware dishes and all types of serving pieces and glassware. The kitchen has all stainless appliances: 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, espresso machine, and an ‘old’ school’ percolator. And a tea pot!

The 5 bedrooms suites all have ceiling fans and a/c (except our Palm suite which is so breezy, we have to shut the windows at night and has a ceiling fan!), balconies, terraces, decks, candles and plenty of reading lamps, and en suite bathrooms with fluffy towels, hair dryers, scented glycerin soaps, and other thoughtful amenities. Our outdoor shower is a delight, and each suite offers privacy and a unique decor.

Hibiscus Suite: Enjoy this serene king suite, tucked away on the second floor in our main pavilion. French doors open to its shady balcony and colorful hammock. The balcony overlooks the entrance courtyard with its peaceful gardens, and offers views up to our peaceful rain forest mountain to the east.

Palm Suite: You have total privacy in this separate bi level pavilion, which sits on the side of the mountain off the living area of the house. It consists of a breezy sitting room above a sunny queen bedroom suite. French doors open from the bedroom to the large private deck, with its hammock, table and chairs, and potted palms. The cut coral stairway curves from the deck up to the pool terrace, and the ocean view from the hammock is gorgeous.

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 en suite bathroom. Ten foot wide French doors open to the large shaded balcony, with its comfortable seating, 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 secluded outdoor shower with more stone work, palm plants, and teak bench. The ocean view from the terrace is stunning.

Calypso Suite: This welcoming first floor suite includes lots of closet space, a dressing area, and in addition to the king bed can accommodate two twins. French doors open to its shady covered patio area with hammock adjacent to the pool and it has the same fantastic views that Oasis enjoys.

We offer many complimentary extras that set us apart from other villas:

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

All of us have a different idea of what makes the perfect vacation for our family or travel group. We hope the information here encourages our potential guests to think about what constitutes theirs, and to contact us with any questions. We are happy to share what we know about these islands, traveling here, activities, and other rental villas—we are looking for a ‘good fit’ and a joyous vacation experience for our BVI guests!

“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!'

Please visit for lots more information and photos and give us a call! 978 462 7091

We want your vacation experience in the BVI's to be wonderful, and are so sure of Cielo's charms, we will match any comparable Tortola villa's rental rate!

Cane Garden Bay

The Villa is situated on 2 private acres with no other homes beside us, or between us and Cane Garden Bay 1,000 feet below. Our views are of the sea, St John and St Thomas, Cane Garden Bay, and the many beaches along our Northwest coastline. There are also lovely views of Sage Mountain and its Rain Forest all along our Eastern side.

Sunrises and sunsets are really quite beautiful from our pool terrace and bedroom balconies.

We are a 3 minute drive from Brewer's Bay beach and some of our guests like to walk Brewer’s hill for morning exercise. Brewer’s Bay is a quiet nature lover’s beach and off the beaten path.

Cane Garden Bay is only a 5 minute drive down the hill. It is a lovely beach with quite a few casual restaurants for lunches, dinners, and happy hours, as well as live music 7 nights a week. It also has a small grocery store, local bakery, gift shops, and outdoor local craft stalls, as well as a gas station and charter boat dock for day trips to our other islands.

Road Town, with its large grocery stores, shops, and ferry dock is less than a 15 minute ride from the house. Road Town also boasts many marinas, interesting restaurants, and nightlife.

Many of Tortola’s most romantic and picturesque restaurants are within a 10 minute drive from the villa. Our favorite taxi drivers from nearby Cane Garden Bay are happy to drive our guests to and from their restaurants of choice.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

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. Cielo's amazing manager, Janet, and I know the island well, and do everything we can to introduce our guests to the activities, places, and events that best serve their individual vacation needs. Time and resources are precious, and your vacation pleasure and comfort are of utmost importance to us. It is my heartfelt wish to share this refreshing and peaceful home and the BVI's with you! We would love to hear from you! “An inexhaustible good nature is one of the most precious gifts of heaven...” ~Washington Irving~

Why the Owner Chose Tortola, British Virgin Islands:
Cielo is a very easy to get to centrally located property with privacy and lovely year round breezes that guests love! We have clocked the time it takes to get to our favorite beaches, shops, and restaurants, and can promise accuracy in the closeness to all the vacation activities that our guests enjoy! Our guests also love our manager/chef who is warm and professional, and guests depart with a new friend and often return year after year for all she and we offer!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Cielo is Peaceful, Private, and Close to vacation activities! We offer our guests: Stunning panoramic views Private swimming pool set in cut coral tiles Lovely year round breezes Secluded and serene bedrooms with en suite baths Spacious open living and dining pavilions and verandas Open air cook's kitchen and built in charcoal grill station Thoughtful amenities and colorful decor and fabrics A wonderfully accommodating owner & staff!
