Welcome to Cielo Villa!


Perfect Days

Our perfect day starts 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 choice of adventures for that day. After a day out and about, we think happy hour is a super way to transition from afternoon naps and showers to our evening events, which can be going out to dinner, preparing dinner at the house, going dancing, or just lounging around the pool terrace till bedtime…

Cane Garden Bay- As it is just 5 minutes away, there’s no great investment of time. We go for walks, beaching, swimming and lunch. The entire family can go for happy hours later in the day; the kids are safe to run the beach, while adults can relax and keep an eye on them and enjoy live music and happy hour food and drink specials with the other adults.

Smugglers Cove- It is a 25 minute drive from the house, but it is a lovely ride with new breathtaking views around every turn. The beach has soft white sand and palm trees for shade, and the water is calm and clear. We bring a picnic lunch. This is our favorite beach!

Sopers Hole- Is located in the West End at the small marina there. It has lovely little shops, a Pusser’s Pub, and a truly good little Italian bistro at the far end. It is great idea to visit there on cloudy days.

Power Boat Charters- We are happy to recommend captains who give you the flexibility to choose your own itinerary on their power boat day trips. White Bay on Jost van Dyke, The Baths on Virgin Gorda, snorkeling at the Indians, and swimming at Sandy Cay are favorite day trip destinations. Willie T can be fun for an all adult group. You can often cover many of these destinations on one day trip. This day can be the highlight of your trip—try it!

Sailboat Charters- We can also recommend catamaran sailboat charters for a day on the water. Some offer half day sails as well. They offer a calm and beautiful, but fun day.

Cielo- The house is still one of our favorite places! Privacy, sun, shade, pool, food, drinks, music, books, naps, bathrooms, breezes, and endless views are right here!  We have had guests remark that, “There is no real reason to even leave the house today.” 


“Our extended family has gathered at Cielo Villa for three glorious years now and hope to return often.  Such a gracious atmosphere, stunning views, and total privacy for all in the thoughtful and well-appointed design of the house…  Heaven in the BVIs.”   Shiela S.


The villa is furnished with elephant bamboo, and whimsical wicker furniture, fabrics, and decorative accents. 

The well equipped kitchen pavilion is open to the courtyard gardens, lanai dining areas, pool, and view with a built in BBQ grill nearby and a pantry full of vibrant Fiesta dinner ware and plentiful entertaining items attached.

The charming and colorful living room pavilion is open, poolside, and adjacent to the dining lanais.

Our 5 secluded bedroom suites are all unique with en suite bathrooms and peaceful outdoor sitting/hammock areas attached. All have ceiling fans and all have a/c except for Palm which is too breezy and cool to require one.

Oasis Suite
This soothing king suite is located in the second level of Cielo’s main pavilion. The suite boasts a separate dressing area, desk, and spacious bath. French doors open to the wide shaded balcony, which overlooks the pool and endless ocean views.

Hibiscus Suite (old Bouganvellia/queen)
Enjoy this delightful king suite tucked away in a private corner of the villa..  French doors open to the hammock balcony that overlooks the charming entrance courtyard and has lovely views up to Sage Mountain to our east.

Palm Suite
Total privacy is yours in this separate pavilion, which consists of a breezy sitting room on the main level and a quiet queen bedroom on the cliff side level.  A secluded deck is off the bedroom with hammock, sitting area, and potted palms.  Curved coral tile staircase leads up to the pool deck.

Coral Cottage
Retreat up the stone staircase from the pool to this secluded queen pavilion, with its very private terrace and grotto like outdoor shower with its glowing sconces and lush tropical plantings… 

Calypso Suite
Artfully designed in vivid tropical colors, this welcoming King first floor suite includes a spacious bath, dressing area, and the ability to accommodate guests with mobility concerns.  French doors open to the poolside terrace and panoramic views.
“The layout is excellent.  You can have total privacy in each bedroom and still take only a couple steps to see the main patio area—which is breathtaking.  The house is unique, and the little exquisite details that Nancy has in place are fabulous…”

Cielo Villa is situated on 2 private acres with no other homes beside us, or between us and Cane Garden Bay 1,000 feet below. We offer guests complete privacy and truly stunning views of Cane Garden Bay, the beaches along our coastline, and St John and St Thomas in the distance. Cielo also takes advantage of views of Sage Mountain and its Rain Forest to the East.

We are a 3 minute drive from Brewer's Bay beach but some of our guests like to walk Brewer’s hill for morning exercise.

Cane Garden Bay is only a 5 minute drive down the hill; a lovely beach with quite a few charming 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, marinas, restaurants, nightlife, and ferry dock is less than a 15 minute ride from the house. 

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.

The villa is perfect for guests who enjoy surfing, beaching, scuba diving, boating, snorkeling, and wind surfing as we are centrally located near most of Tortola's beaches and water sport equipment and boat rentals. 
Many of our guests opt to spend a day at the villa, enjoying the glorious views, gentle breezes, and the joys of a private pool, sun and shade, and all the comforts of their home away from home.
“The villa was every bit as lovely as it appeared on the web, and the view knocked our socks off over and over again…next time we will definitely book for two weeks!”
