About the Property

5 Bedrooms 5 Bathrooms Sleeps 12+

We are so happy and excited that you are stopping to learn more about our villa! This is your vacation, and we look forward to chatting with you about what you love to do on holiday, and how we can help make you absolutely happy with your experience at Cielo and in the BVI's!

Once you enter through Cielo’s welcoming gate, you will think you stepped into paradise! This remarkable and charming villa is comprised of 7 open air pavilions, tiled pathways, gardens, terraces, decks, and balconies, all scattered about a truly spacious pool patio. The entire front side of the villa offers you spectacular ocean views--- there are no photos to do them justice, nor capture the relaxed and magical vibe...

The charming and colorful living pavilion is poolside, 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.

You will love the pantry, full of colorful fiesta ware and funky serving ware, and cooking with your loved ones in such an open space is a rare treat as you are always part of the party. We do have our priorities in place and offer you 8 ways to brew your morning coffee or tea!

Each of our 5 bedroom suites offers privacy and a unique decor. All have ceiling fans and a/c for your comfort, en suite bathrooms with fluffy towels, hair dryers, scented glycerin soaps, and other thoughtful amenities, and each suite offers a magical balcony, terrace, or deck for private get away moments.

Enjoy a serene king suite, tucked away in a quiet corner of the villa. French doors open to its shady balcony and hammock, and offers views up to our peaceful rain forest mountain to the east.

You can appreciate your total privacy in a separate pavilion, which sits on the side of the mountain . 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, sitting area, and potted palms, and a cut coral stairway curves up to the pool terrace, The ocean view from the hammock is gorgeous...

A second king suite is large and airy with a separate dressing area and en suite bathroom. Wide French doors open to the large shaded balcony, with its comfortable seating. This suite overlooks the swimming pool patio and endless ocean views.

Our Cottage's 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. The ocean view from the terrace is stunning.

A wonderful and welcoming poolside 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, and it offers fantastic views.

We offer many services that set us apart from other villas, and we are delighted to help you choose the options that are pleasurable and valuable to you. We list just a few here to get you thinking about what would add that special touch for your group:
Unlimited help with your planning and travel
Rum Punch personal greeting upon arrival
Spa, nanny, chef services
Charter, bare boat days, scuba, snorkeling, SUP reservations
Delivery and chilling of your food and beverages from our on line service
Delivery of your rental vehicles to the villa

Housekeeping choices

Cielo Villa has a unique location and vibe that we have not found anywhere else in the BVIs! If you have decided to enjoy an authentic Caribbean vacation, we can assist you! It can be a tourism whirlwind of fun activities or a slower 'local' experience. We are truly happy to be service oriented and are dedicated to adding 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!

“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!
Warm Regards!

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 the villa. We named it "Cielo" which means heaven in many languages-- we welcome you and think you will agree! We 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!

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 motto is, "Go the Extra Mile~ It is Never Crowded"

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Cielo is Peaceful, Private, and Close to vacation activities! We are so excited and pleased to be able to offer our guests an EXPERIENCE, not just a roof and walls! 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!
