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!

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.

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"

Nancy Shaw Kilty purchased this villa in 2001

Why Nancy Shaw Kilty chose 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 means 'Heaven' and has glorious views, total privacy, and gentle breezes on its secluded mountain top setting to earn that name!! In addition, this colorful and charming villa has one of the best locations on Tortola, minutes to the beaches, shopping, and fun evening activities that the BVIs have to offer.

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.

What makes this villa unique

Cielo Villa is centrally located on 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...

Awesome Property

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lovely Haven on Tortola

  • 4 of 5

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. We will be back to Tortola for sure <3

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!

Owner's Response: We have found that being that close to Cane Garden Bay is great for those quick trips to the beach or to the little store there, gas station, or happy hour restaurants!

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.

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.
