The Villa is within easy walking distance to the grocery store and just a few minute walk to the beach. We enjoyed watching monkeys from the porch and visiting the nearby French bakery. Greg helped us with all the... More

What an AMAZING VACATION. My two adult kids and I went in celebration of their recent graduations. We did not want the run of the mill “Resort” vacation that feels like you just picked up a little piece of the US and took it to a foreign country. I wanted to really experience the country and people. Staying at Villas... More

We stayed at Villa Papaya and it was a lovely place! Very clean and comfortable, amazing location close to the beach, stores, and restaurants, and the onsite caretakers were friendly and helpful.

We happened upon this place on airbnb. It was everything we needed. The entire place is enclosed in a gate so there is a definite security that we appreciated.
