Papaya Villa, Long Bay

Villa description

High up hillside above the mile-long beach at Long Bay on Tortola’s beautiful north-west coast, Papaya Villa is a luxurious and comfortable 4-bedroom villa with impressive panoramic ocean views. The villa is located in a tranquil setting surrounded by magnificent tropical gardens. Relax in loungers around the villa’s heated infinity pool, which has a swim current machine for swimming laps or just for fun! A lot of thought has gone into providing numerous areas for relaxing both inside and outside the property – poolside loungers plus comfortable sofas and chairs under the covered terrace. In addition, guests are spoilt with dining area options either formal indoor/outdoor, alfresco dining under the shade and patio table and chairs for morning coffee and pastries.

The Great House features Papaya’s living room, which has multiple doors opening providing cooling breezes and wonderful ocean views. To the rear is the gourmet galley kitchen offering a wide range of professional appliances. A half-bathroom is conveniently located to the rear of the pool.

Accommodation is well spaced out over four pavilions providing excellent privacy for all guests in four luxury air-conditioned bedrooms all with modern ensuite facilities. Far west of the grounds is Vine Cottage housing the inviting and very private master bedroom suite with romantic 4-poster king-size bed and private verandah. A convenient kitchenette, large bathroom with double sinks as well as both indoor and outdoor showers completes this suite. Accessed by steps leading up from behind the pool deck, two further bedroom suites, both of equal size, overlook the infinity pool and ocean views beyond. Conveniently located next to each other, one bedroom can be made up as a king or twins so a good choice for families with children. The second bedroom has a king-size 4-poster bed, and an outdoor shower in the en suite bathroom. The fourth bedroom, which has two twin beds, is accessed by steps leading down adjacent to the villa’s courtyard. This suite has an ensuite bathroom with rainfall shower and a convenient kitchenette.

Trudi’s personal opinion

Papaya Villa is an excellent quality villa, a good choice for guests seeking something a bit special. Bed configuration gives good options for couples and singles as well as spacious accommodation for families. With numerous seating areas you’ll be spoilt for choice of where to relax. The villa is well designed providing guests with the upmost privacy but also has good central areas where guests can get together, whether it be over a meal on the covered terrace, relaxing in the sofas or lounging around the infinity pool. The choice is yours! Papaya is a wonderful addition to the villas we represent on Tortola. Highly recommended!

    Papaya Villa is absolutely beautiful and the view is stunning. The property is very well maintained and we couldn’t have asked for more. The travel up the hills to the villa is an adventure for sure, but made for great memories. All staff and managers were very helpful and responsive when needed. It was a great experience and I would recommend Papaya Villa to anyone traveling to Tortola.

    I would highly recommend using Best of BVI for booking your trip. Trudi provided all the information we needed from our jeep rentals to our provisions being delivered to our villa. Papaya villa staff were very professional and Sharlene took great care of us. There is no other place like the British Virgin Islands. Everyone there is so friendly and make getting around the islands such a joy. Papaya Villa was breathtaking and the views were fabulous. I would highly recommend Papaya Villa!

  • DB

    Papaya Villa was top notch, excellent, outstanding, amazing and exceeded our expectations, we would definitely recommend it to others! The villa manager and housekeeper were excellent. We were satisfied with Best of BVI, the booking process was easy, smooth and prompt.

    We would highly recommend anyone visiting the island to experience the local flare. Rudy’s outdoor bar at the intersection of Ridge Rd and Joes Hill Rd is great for absorbing island attitude with a rum punch or Elm’s Bar and grill in Cane Garden Bay for lunch or dinner and Smugglers Cove is a hidden gem for a picnic day at the beach.

    Villa Papaya exceeds all expectations. It has an amazing view and has every amenity you could think of, 10 out of 10. I would love to come back. Trudi [Best of BVI] did an amazing job helping book the villa and rental jeep. The villa manager, Sam, was wonderful, she was easy to be reached and gave us some excellent recommendations on restaurants.
