Property description

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:

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 wwwcielovilla.co for lots more information and photos and give us a call!
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 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.
