Tortola Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths Sleeps 8

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 the BVIs have to offer.

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

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.

Our most obvious views are of the entire North West coast of the island, and one can see the many beaches on that side and St John and St Thomas in the distance. We also offer lovely and serene views to the east of the serpentine Sage Mountain that runs the entire length of the island.

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 7 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.

As private as Cielo is, we are easily found at the end of a simple road that is connected to the major road that runs up the hill from Cane Garden Bay.

Each of our 5 bedroom suites boasts a private outdoor space, whether it is a shady ocean view balcony, secluded terrace with private stairs to the pool, quiet reading balcony with hammock, private deck offering a breezy hammock and potted palms, or sun dappled pool side seating surrounded by colorful gardens.

The privacy of the bedrooms is balanced by Cielo's large, sunny alfresco living areas. The open and airy living room pavilion is poolside, along with two dining lanais, and the charming kitchen, which is completely open to the gardens and views.

Time and resources are very dear to all of us, and we strive to help make your vacation a wonderful one. Please visit www.cielovilla.com for more information and photos.

“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!'

About Nancy Shaw Kilty

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~

Nancy Shaw Kilty purchased this villa in 2001

Even better the second time....

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from our second stay at Cielo Villa and it was just as spectacular as the first! The first trip in 2011 there were 15 of us for a week. This time only 4 of us for three days post sailing charter. Cielo easily and comfortably accomodated 15 on the last trip and did not feel overwhelming with just 4 of is this time around. Cielo is exactly as advertised but the pictures, especially of the views, do not do it justice. You have to see it, hear it, smell it and feel it, to really understand it....indescribable!! Cielo is easily accessible to everything Tortola has to offer, beaches, restaurants, bars, entertainment. It's central location, high above Cane Garden Bay, make it easy to hit all the best spots on Tortola in a short drive. We spent our first day just limin' by the pool. Our guests (first timers) looked at us like we were crazy when we suggested going to the beach for the day. Their response was, "why would we want to leave here?" This was our 13th trip to the BVI and we always seem to find a new "favorite" place. This year it was Josiah's Bay with the surf up, a quick 25 minute drive from Cielo. The villa is the perfect home base but make sure you plan a long enough trip to enjoy the island(s) and Cielo. Nancy (the owner) is fantastic to work with and always quick to respond. She was even able to accomodate our request to stay 3 nights which was less than her minimum during the holiday period. Janet is a wonderful on-island host and is happy to help with anything you need! We are already counting down the days to next years BVI adventure and hoping that Cielo will again be a part of it!

Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed in Cielo Villa mid-June of this year. The house was magnificent and the staff was friendly and always available for our needs. Janet made us feel at home from the moment we got to Cielo. It was nice that the staff came in mid-week to clean; we left for a day trip and came back to a spotless house which was wonderful after a long day. My kids loved the pool and my wife and I loved the outdoor shower. The beach was just down the street so we didn’t feel we had to rush people out of the house to get a full day in the water. We can’t express our gratitude for Nancy and her attentive staff. We’ll be returning next year for sure!

Winter break in paradise!

  • 5 of 5
I went to Cielo during my winter break in early January with a group of friends and a couple of the girls’ moms. Nancy was great about getting back to us and felt like she genuinely wanted us to have the best possible time. There was plenty of space in the villa to fit us all and it was stunning. We loved to go explore the island and find all the beaches, the more remote the better. While we explored, the moms said they would stay at the house and just enjoy the quiet, the view and the pool. At night we would drive five minutes down the road to the restaurants on the beach for happy hour and stay for live music and dancing. The people were all so nice and welcoming. We all had an awesome time and are already planning our trip for when we graduate!

Beautiful escape from busy life!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Cielo Villa this past May during one of the bed and breakfast weeks. Each of the suits was separated with their own bathroom making it feel private and yet I still got to meet a group of great people who were staying in the other bedrooms. The house was beautiful and spotless. I loved the view from my bedroom that overlooked the pool. I never felt guilty about just hanging around the house to relax. I would return for the house alone, but the island was also refreshingly down to earth and gorgeous. I got to escape from the rush of my busy life back in the states. I would love to get a group of girlfriends together to rent the whole house next time.

Excellent Villa, Excellent Location, Excellent Owner

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Cielo last February and will be back again this year. First of all Nancy (the owner) is great. She communicates quickly and will do whatever she can to make your stay awesome. Secondly, the villa is great. We love lanai living where the inside and out are one and this is the best of it. The entire living area including the kitchen are outside which truly makes you feel like you are in the Caribbean. Also, it is VERY secluded. Except for the pool guy, you will not see a soul, ever. Finally, the location is great. No traffic, easy to get to and easy to get to restaurants and the beach.

I would give you recommendations of restaurants, such as Cruisin (say hi to Mac) or entertainment such as Walters but you should explore yourself and get your own favorites! It won't take you long. Definitely check out Josiahs and Long Bay (Beef Island).

We are group of early 40s couples that have been travelling the Caribbean for 8 years together. We have been to some great destinations and stayed at some great villas. Tortola and Cielo are bringing us back for a consecutive year not only because of the island but because the level of service Nancy gave us and the awesome villa. Give it a try, you will not regret.

Owner's Response: What a lovely review-- thank you so much! You were able to put into words what is so hard to describe about the house being so much outdoors and connected to the pool, gardens, and view. We are so excited you are coming back!!

Tortola

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, and Ridge Road is the spine/backbone.

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 shoreline is rocky, the roads flat, and the views of the Sir Francis Drake Channels and small islands lovely. 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, the roads winding and climbing, 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.

There is a major road that runs along the perimeter of the entire Gecko's body, with a few roads running up to the spine/backbone and down to the other side.

One can drive the entire length (tip of the nose to tip of the tail) of the Gecko in about one hour, and from one side of the body to the other in 15 minutes.

As private as Cielo is, we are easily found. Find well known Cane Garden Bay, and you can easily find your way home!
