About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 5 Baths Sleeps 8+

Welcome to Cielo Villa! Nestled on a secluded mountaintop overlooking Cane Garden Bay, you can spend your days relaxing on a poolside chaise lounge in total privacy, soaking in the sun and the glorious views, while a gentle breeze rustles the palm fronds around you. Or, if you’re in the mood for something a little more adventurous, in under 5 minutes you can be at the best beaches, shopping, and fun evening activities the BVIs have to offer!

The moment you step through Cielo’s gate, you will understand why this villa is named for the Spanish word meaning ‘Heaven’ – it is absolute paradise! Cielo is comprised of 7 open air pavilions, tiled pathways, gardens, terraces, decks and balconies, positioned around a peaceful and spacious pool patio. The entire front side of the villa offers you unadulterated ocean views, overlooking Cane Garden Bay with St. John as a backdrop. There are no photos that can do these views justice, or capture the relaxed and magical vibe you will feel when experiencing them for yourself.

Everything you do at this house is done poolside, and you can see the breathtaking ocean and mountain views from every vantage point. Stress is just about the only thing you can’t find at Cielo – the sun melts worries away during the day, and evenings are magically relaxing with the glow of the lamps and pool lights taking a backseat to the billions of visible stars against the black sky.

Cielo’s kitchen is completely open-air. The gentle breeze and views of the pool, ocean, mountains and gardens make cooking a pleasure rather than a chore. You will love the pantry, which is fully stocked with colorful and funky serving ware – and everyone at Cielo is a morning person, with 8 different ways to brew your morning coffee or tea!

Each of our 5 bedroom suites offers privacy and uniqueness. All of them have separate locking entrances (each with a different key) to ensure maximum privacy, as well as ceiling fans and A/C for your comfort. Each suite has its own private bathroom with fluffy towels, hair dryers, scented glycerin soaps and other thoughtful amenities. Every suite features its own private balcony, terrace or deck for private get away moments.

Enjoy a king suite, tucked away in the corner of the villa. French doors open to its shady balcony and hammock, with eastern views of our peaceful rainforest mountain.

Experience total privacy in a separate 2-level pavilion, consisting of a breezy sitting room above a sunny queen bedroom suite. French doors open from the bedroom to the large private deck (not visible from the rest of the house) with its hammock, sitting area, potted palms and a cut coral staircase curving up to the pool terrace. The ocean views from the hammock are unparalleled.

A second king suite is large and airy with a separate dressing area and en suite bathroom. Wide French doors open to a large shaded balcony with comfortable seating, overlooking the pool and featuring 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, but the shower is a special feature like nothing you’ve ever seen. Surrounded by natural stone, with nothing but blue sky above you and beautiful ocean views around you, this will be a bathing experience you won’t soon forget.

A wonderful poolside suite includes lots of closet space, a dressing area and enough space to accommodate 2 twin sized beds in addition to the king if needed. French doors open poolside to a shady covered patio area with hammock.

If you want to experience the Caribbean in all of its glory, we can assist you to ensure that your vacation is perfect and unforgettable! We offer a number of services, all customized and a la carte, allowing you to enjoy uninterrupted privacy or be completely pampered (or anywhere in between). You can choose to vacation in a beautiful home inexpensively by adding no/few services and spend your money on activities, or you can add services and pamper yourself onsite – whatever you choose, it will be custom tailored to your preferences and budget. It is our job to make sure your vacation is exactly how you envisioned it, and we take our job very seriously.

Our prime location feels secluded and peaceful while being just minutes from beaches and activities, making it ideal for whatever you want to get out of your vacation – be it a tourism whirlwind of fun activities, a slower ‘local’ experience, or something in between. We offer free consults to customers if you’d like help in planning your travel, or recommendations for dining/activity destinations based on your interests.

Please visit for more information and additional photos of the place you’ll soon be calling home for a few days! Book now… Heaven is waiting.

“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!'

Warm Regards!

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. We know the island well, and will do everything we can to introduce you to the activities and places we love and think you might enjoy experiencing, 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, "Go the Extra Mile~It is Never Crowded"

Why the Owner Chose Tortola, British Virgin Islands:
Cielo is Peaceful, Private, and close to all your vacation activities! We are so excited and pleased to be able to offer our guests an EXPERIENCE, not just a roof and walls! We offer our guests: Stunning views Year round breezes Large alfresco living areas Five Private & unique bedroom suites with en suite bathrooms Thoughtful amenities A wonderfully accommodating owner and on island guest services manager Cielo Villa has one of the very best locations and settings of any rental villa on Tortola! It is situated on 2 private acres with no other homes on either side, or between it and Cane Garden Bay 1,000 feet below. It sits alone on a hillside with truly stunning views. We are a 5 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 the same amount of time. We provide travel tips, complimentary provisioning services, discounts on many car, boat, and water sport rentals, and round the clock answers and help with any questions or concerns.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Cielo Villa is centrally located on the north shore of Tortola, easy to get to and close to some of our nicest beaches and many of our evening fun spots! Cielo is perfect for small groups or large-- spacious gathering areas near the pool and gardens, and private spaces near the bedrooms...
