Fantastic villa, great position, secure and safe
Short walk to main strip in Sanur where restaurants, cafes,shopping aplenty. Hardies supermarket only a few minutes walk away
Everything u need for a relaxing holiday. Staff are all very lovely and friendly.
Bill and Maureen couldn't help us enough. They have great knowledge of Sanur and surrounding areas.
Our flight was cancelled due to volcano and they found another villa for us to move to as papaya was booked out after we were to leave.
This was our first time we had stayed at a villa and with 4 kids it was perfect.
Will definitely stay at papaya again
Would thoroughly recommend papaya for a fantastic family holiday
Just returned from 3 weeks at Papaya Villa Sanur what can I say that hasn't been said before. Fantastic villa in a great location to Hardys ,numerous restaurants and a 2 min walk for taxis. Bill and Maureen were fabulous hosts and made us feel very welcome offering help and advice when needed Kadek the cleaner was very efficient and such a lovely person. The outdoor kitchen and dining/entertaining area was well used by our family and the pool was great. Great library of books for the quiet moments and lovely friendly locals to chat to every day. All in all the makings of great holiday

We have just spent a wonderful few days at the Papaya Villa. We always stay in Sanur but this was our first opportunity to stay in a private villa & we couldn’t have asked for a better one! Location is great, being a short stroll to Hardy’s supermarket & the beach.
Whichever way you turn on Jalan Tamblingan it is just a short walk to many restaurants, bars & shops, including beauty spas for those relaxing massages!
There were 4 of us and the villa has plenty of space to ensure privacy – 2 bedrooms upstairs (one has 2 king singles) and a very large bedroom downstairs – all with ensuites. The downstairs area is fantastic – the pool is a great size and there are 4 sun beds beside the pool. The outdoor dining area is also a great space & the kitchen is very well equipped. The airconditioning worked perfectly but there are many fans as well. Plenty of towels were provided, including pool towels.
We really appreciated the “goodies” provided by owners Bill & Maureen when we arrived - bread, butter, milk, tea, coffee, sugar & even Bintang beers! Another bonus for us was the big water cooler which is provided and will be replaced when it runs out.
There is a laundry 2 doors down but the villa has a washing machine for those who need it. The villa is very secure and we weren’t disturbed by any noise due to being away from the busy main street.
We took advantage of one of the drivers offered by Bill and he arrived at very short notice for a trip to Matahari where he waited patiently while we snagged some bargains.
Bill & Maureen were on hand if we needed anything & came to see us off when we left for the airport. We will most definitely book to stay at Papaya Villa when we return to Sanur, or if there are only 2 or 3 of us, we would choose Coconut Villa next door.
We would highly recommend Papaya Villa to fellow-travellers who are looking for comfort, privacy and cleanliness in a very convenient location.
We traveled to Bali a year ago (June 2014) but still talk about and are in love with Papaya Villa and Sanur as an area. The villa is exactly as advertised - clean, comfortable, the pool and dining area are spacious and a good place to hang out. We traveled as a group of 7 and had more than enough space.
Papaya villa is a perfect blend of the convenience of a hotel (with regular cleaning and maintenance taken care of by the staff) and the comfort of home - every day after our activities, we were always so happy to come back and chill in the pool or read on the loungers.
The villa is about a 2 minute walk to the main road in Sanur which has a supermarket, many restaurants and a 10 minute walk to the beach. Sanur itself was a peaceful and still fun place and we thought we picked the perfect part of Bali to suit the kind of vacation we wanted. There is a place to rent bicycles just outside the villa and you also can find taxis on the main road pretty easily.
Bill and Maureen were very helpful right from the booking process, were always very responsive and were available on phone for anything we needed during our stay. They also had stocked the fridge with some basics before we even checked in!
Every time we plan a vacation, we are tempted to go back to Bali and Papaya Villa specifically, will hopefully make it back here sometime in the near future!
We booked Papaya Villa for 10 -15 March 2015. Bill and Maureen were very prompt in their replies and furnished us with the information we needed. As the villa is situated just behind the main stretch of Sanur, it was an extremely short walk out to Hardys, not to mention the foot massage parlour on the way there which is value for money! Just book early.
Bill and Maureen made sure there was sufficient bottled water throughout our stay and dropped by occasionally to find out if we were doing ok. The 3 bedrooms with ensuite showers were very spacious and the master bed room downstairs even had a baby cot which was clean and big for a 1 year old. We spent a lot of time in the pool, not for doing laps but just to soak in the sun. Overall, we really felt at home in the villa and hardly left! We even used the BBQ pit for the seafood we bought from the fish market near Seminyak.
The only small issue which cant really be helped as it is the same with other places in Bali is that the small streets in Bali are often very small and without signs so it might take you a while to locate it especially if you are driving since you will not be able to drive in through the lane next to Hardys. Parking the car in the garage requires some slight maneuvering and could be problematic for long cars. That said its extremely easy to locate if you walk and take the lane next to Hardys and the hotel.
Sanur is a great place to stay if you are with your family and Papaya villa is definitely somewhere I would choose to go with my family or friends again!
Cannot rate this place any higher! It was absolutely beautiful. The villa looks exactly as it does in the photos. It's spacious, modern and so reasonably priced for what you get. The bedrooms are huge each with their own ensuite. The kitchen is great as is the pool. I loved chilling on the sun loungers and it was just a beautiful place to come home to after a day out in sanur. The location is perfect right in the heart of sanur in the middle of the main strip. The hosts Bill and Maureen were fantastic meeting us at the villa when we arrived and checking on us to make sure we were ok. If you are looking for a relaxing villa in a fantastic location look no further!
Papaya Villa was situated in a excellent location...close to shops and the beach. Beautiful well decorated villa w clean bedrooms and bathrooms, open kitchen, nice swimming pool, oportunity for BBQ - just as you see in their official pictures! The owners ara really kind couple, who were waited us with breakfast and drinks. They attended to our every need whilst giving us our privacy. They organized tours, airport transfers, fresh water. Everyday housekeeping.
If you are in Bali, you must stay in their apartment!I can highly recommend this villa for family or group of friends.
Bill & Maureen thank you again. We'll be back one day.
