Reviewers Rating: Excellent
We stayed at Cielo Vista from 10/15-10/22 on our first "real" trip to St. John (had been day visitors from cruise ships previously).
Inside: Very well equipped and maintained. A/C in both bedrooms only, but a lot of screened windows and doors ensure breezes throughout.
Fully stocked kitchen - we cooked almost every night and found everything we needed to do so. Gas grill on deck completes the cooking needs.
Comfortable living area with TV/cable/DVD and boom box stereo. A lot of books - some with island info, others just for reading enjoyment.
Great bathrooms with open air (screened) showers with superb view!
Outside: Small gravel parking lot just off of Gift Hill Rd. Superb deck on back of house. Nice pool, covered and uncovered areas, upstairs observation deck, hammock, hammock chairs, chaise lounges, dining table - we spent most of our villa time out here enjoying the spectacular views of Cruz Bay and the sunsets over St. Thomas.
The landscaping on the property is lush and beautiful, and the twin bird feeders make watching the bananquits and hummingbirds a nice extra.
The Gift Hill Rd. location is conveniently located to provide near equal access to Cruz Bay, north shore beaches, or to Coral Bay and the east end of the island.
The two master suite bedrooms would make this perfect for two couples travelling together, and there is additional sleeping room on the sofas upstairs and downstairs for slightly larger family groups.
Beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, and pool toys provided.
We would certainly return to this lovely villa!
