|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
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.

“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!'

Nancy Shaw Kilty purchased this villa in 2000
Tortola and the BVI's offer the perfect balance of everything you could ever want out of a vacation…
Enjoy uncrowded beaches and private spots if you’re looking to chill out and let the sun melt your troubles away, or beaches dotted with restaurants, shops, bars and people looking to have a good time if you’re feeling more social. An authentic, laid back, local experience if you want to be low-key, or a tourist experience if you feel like heading to Road Town to see the sights. A day of hiking and exploring in a secluded tropical rain forest, or a day spent doing some of the many family-friendly activities the island has to offer.
All lead back to an evening at the villa, sitting poolside in a chaise lounge with a fruity drink in your hand, a warm breeze on your skin, and zillions of stars above.
Regardless of what you want to get out of your vacation, or how often you change your mind on that point, Tortola offers everything, and Cielo is close to it all!
The villa boasts stunning views, thoughtful amenities, unparalleled privacy, and unmatched aesthetic beauty. It is situated atop a hill on 2 acres of lush greenery, with no visible neighbors on any side, and breathtaking views of Cane Garden Bay below and St. John in the distance.
It is also a 5-minute drive to several beaches, including the one at Cane Garden Bay, which offers a variety of shops, restaurants, bars, and live music 7 nights per week. Cane Garden Bay also has a small grocery store, gas station, charter boat dock, and ATM's. Road Town, with its large grocery stores and numerous shops, restaurants and activities, is less than 15 minutes away.
We are so excited and pleased to be able to offer our guests an experience they will love-- the BVI's, Tortola, Cane Garden Bay, and Cielo Villa!
Our favorite days start with coffee and quiet conversation while taking in the peacefulness of the early morning villa and the serenity of the ocean views.
After breakfast, we embark on our choices of adventures for that day. There are so many pleasures to enjoy in the BVI’s...
Many days we realize that there is no real reason to even leave the villa! Privacy, sun, shade, pool, food, drinks, music, books, naps, bathrooms, breezes, and endless views are right here! Cielo means Heaven, and we often travel with friends or family members who appreciate the refuge the villa has to offer them, and skip the out and about activities in favor of true relaxation at the house.
Whatever activity we choose for our day, we absolutely revel in our afternoon showers, naps, book reading in the shady hammocks, and all the comforts of our breezy, al fresco home. These simple down times refresh us and allow us to transition with renewed energy to our evenings.
We love happy hour down on Cane Garden Bay, with its people watching and live music. It is a convivial- and often hilarious- time. Quito’s has excellent local bands that provide Reggae and other popular music for dancing on the weekends. We love that all this evening fun is so very close by!
When we are looking for quiet evenings, we indulge in a nearby romantic restaurant, or delight in Cielo’s spectacular sunsets, and relax with cocktails and dinner at the villa, and then lounge around the pool terrace till bedtime… Our available chef or spa services are beyond wonderful when enjoyed with breezes and starlight...
If we have a large group with active friends and family, inventive blender drinks, uncomplicated shared meals, and then games until bedtime have provided some of our most treasured memories.
Friends have called Cieo, " Wonderful! Refreshing! Amazing! Blissful! And the old school one-- Happy!"
Cielo was simply the best. You will not believe your eyes every time you look over Cane Garden Bay. It's so serene and the sunsets are stunning too. The booking process was very easy. Nancy was always prompt and sent along a ton of useful information to help plan our trip. We rented 3 of the 5 bedrooms and that was probably the hardest part of our stay: deciding which rooms to pick! The main living space of the house is open-air. We loved being able to open all the shutters, put on music and hang out by the pool. Our stay included a midweek cleaning and that was a very nice touch. Towels and bathrooms tend to get messy pretty quickly on vacation. Cielo was a highlight of our trip to Tortola and I would highly recommend it.
After a long day of travel we (8 people) arrived at Cielo Villa around 7PM. This was the second time for us at Cielo V. We had asked for dinner on arrival and were not disappointed. Rum punch all around and then island egg rolls that disappeared quickly! We could have made a meal out of them if served more but then came the chicken, beans and rice...Wow! Desert was pina collates, virgin and not. Afore mentioned was extra of course but well worth it! Before the food, grandson (14) was in the pool having a great time. Did I mention the view? Wow! Cane Garden beach and the BVI islands to the north! Roads to Cielo V are typical island roads with gravel on the last 200 feet. Nancy the owner was always available for questions by email and phone. All in all we had a great time with stories to tell in the years ahead!
Firstly, Nancy was so easy to deal with throughout the entire booking process, and provide us with ALL the information that we could have possibly needed to enjoy our stay in the BVI. The villa looked just as it does in the pictures, and I agree with other reviewers the view is absolutely amazing! It was the perfect location, although to get almost anywhere takes only 1/2 an hour, and we enjoyed having Cane Garden Bay so close.
I have to say that Janet, the manager, is an absolute JEM! From the time we arrived, she recognized us at the airport, drove us to Cielo Villa, confirmed the rental car, and gave us some amazing suggestions for food and activities. She made sure our groceries had been delivered, introduced us to the other guest, and gave us a tour and rundown of the way the villa was setup! Since it was low season Janet was not available for our whole stay (which was totally understandable), and without a person in her stead we had few unforeseen tasks during our stay. They were small things, but not what we had wanted to do on our holiday. Also, since she was not at the villa the breakfast food that was to be provided was slightly lacking. I will say that any problems we did encounter, Nancy provided a solution or tried to fix them as soon as possible.
Secondly, Nancy did recommend the most amazing boat captain Mitch, from Ocean Dreams, to charter us to Jost Van Dyke, Little Jost Van Dyke, Norman Island (Willy T), Sandy Spit, Peter Island (caves for snokling), and the Indians. He was amazing, friendly, and very accommodating!
Lastly, if you are diving I would HIGHLY recommend We Be Divers. The dive master is incredible! So knowledgeable about the area, and an excellent guide.
Overall we were very happy with our stay, but I would recommend checking if the manager will be there if you are looking for help with anything or property maintenance.
My family and I stayed at Cielo for 8 days in May for an island wedding. There were 12 people staying at the villa for 3 days and 10 people for the remainder of the time. The villa was full to capacity. 16 people is way to many. There are 5 bedrooms with a foldout couch that should only be for kids and has no privacy. The villa itself is a little old but has a lot of ambience. The kitchen was adequate with plenty of dishes and tables to eat at. The bathrooms, besides the master ( Rm 1), were small but fine. The unit was clean and gets cleaned once a week. Pool was small but also very nice. There is no washer or dryer in the villa which would be great when staying for a week. Laundry service is available but is extra. The grill looks like a gas grill but now is only used with charcoal. That is good to know before you are ready to put the meat on! 6 of 8 of the pool chair cushions were torn and need to be fixed or replaced. The villa has a great view of Cane Garden Bay with lots of privacy. That being said it is a little difficult to get to. You need 4 wheel drive! It rained quite a bit during our stay and one night we slid backwards down the road. It was pretty scary. Plan to arrive during the day or use the free pick up service. The villa needs a tech update. All the audio-visual equipment is old, the TV, VHS player, and the receiver. So you can't use your ipod or computer with their system. I used my Ipad all week for music but that wasn't ideal.
We found it easier to go to Roadtown (cheaper prices and more shopping) than CGB. The owner was very helpful with info and Janet the house manager was very responsive to needs. The view and privacy are the best assets of this villa.
Tortola was our favorite Caribbean island in search of relaxation. The owner Nancy is extremely thoughtful and did everything to assist us in planning our vacation. She communicated efficiently, professionally, and and was wonderfully friendly. Her management team is fabulous. Absolute gorgeous Villa with incredible sunsets views overlooking Cane Garden Bay from the pool, main living space, and room balconies. Cielo’s accommodations, pool and beautiful bay panoramic view made for us memories of a lifetime. The villa is very lovely. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor shower experience. It was great. Thank you Cielo! We will be back.
The newly renovated Cielo villa was more than we imagined. We had the honor of being the first guests. Everything very clean, tidy, fresh and very beautiful. The beds and bathrooms are comfortable and pristine. We rented Cielo Villa for our November vacation. The villa is well decorated, well designed, and very practical. Guest services were perfect, from arrangement for pick-up on arrival to our departure. The property manager met to tour the villa with us, and took great care of us.

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.
