St John Villa Rental Photos and Description

La Papaya is a gorgeous five bedroom St. John beauty and is always a guest favorite!

La Papaya, located high on the hillside in Chocolate Hole North, has commanding views over countless bays an islands to the west and south. Enjoy sunrise over Ditliff Point and the sun setting with a fiery blaze over the tropical sea.

The house itself is designed for ease of living with a furnishings of mahogany and other tropical woods complimented with comfortable seating in rich exotic tones. La Papaya works as well for couples as it does for families, with three king size suites and a large efficiency apartment with 2 additional bedrooms, both with full size bedding and air conditioning. The bathrooms are all tastefully appointed with handmade ceramic tiles and large showers, some open to that glorious view.

All of the living areas of this home are fully air-conditioned, offering a welcome retreat when someone has overdone on our glorious sun and beaches. Watch movies on DVD or video, or enjoy your favorite island rhythm on the state of the art stereo system. The kitchen is a delight with rich mahogany cabinetry and a great open layout.

This gracious home is adorned by a large free-form swimming pool with an infinity edge, for watching the sailboats glide by. The hot tub is also large and circular, with a waterfall edge spilling down into the pool.

The grounds are rich and colorful, with antique brick walks and decks, flower-filled arbors and even a lily pool and fountain.

The location in Chocolate offers easy access to dining and shops in Cruz Bay, and a short drive to our beautiful northshore beaches.

Five bedrooms, air conditioning, pool and hot tub, an incredible view and convenience. La Papaya has it all!

La Papaya is a non-smoking villa.

Worth every penny...

What can I say? This was a trip of a lifetime and the view from this home blew our minds. I left another review on the "Seagate" villa as well, as we took a trip with 20 guys and stayed at two of the Destination St. John Houses (DSJ).

From the beginning, Leslie was so helpful. When we arrived we were greeted and escorted to our home after we crossed the ferry. Inside there was a wonderful hospitality basket that left the perfect touch for the beginning of our stay - fresh cheese, cold cuts, cookies, bread, and more all from a local shop on the island.

The location is near everything - markets, gas, downtown, restaurants, the beaches etc. CANNOT BEAT IT.

The best part? The outdoor deck, patio, pool and hot tub. Nothing beats sitting in that hot tub at night overlooking the hills and all the islands from up top of this mountain, under the beautiful stars.

This is a perfect place for large families or group and is worth every bit of what we paid (we split it between our party of 10).

Be sure to go to Woodys after a long day on the beach (its a little dive bar in town with cheap cheap happy hour drinks - were talking $1 drinks!) and also have the Mahi Sandwhich at High Tide...fresh and one of the best I had. However, everything you need is in this house and kitchen if you choose to go to the grocery store and cook at home to save cash. Be sure to use the grocery store in Red Hook in St. Thomas before you cross the ferry. It is a little bit cheaper than the one on St. JOhn. Although you can get Milk, Dairy and anything perishable that youre overly concerned with on St. John - not a problem.

We will indeed be back - mainly because of the friendliness and professionalism of this company. They know what they are doing and easily trusted. In fact, i've already sent a friend and another large group to them for these homes. Enjoy Paradise on earth!!!

Panoramic Views in an unbeatable location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay on St. John and by far the best one yet!

La Papaya accommodated our party of 8 (4 couples in our 30s to 40s) in excellent fashion.

Pool was very large and refreshing and we made great use of the large hot tub every night.

The location is unbeatable with just a hop skip and jump to the market and town.

On the top deck one has panoramic views of 3-4 bays and what felt like 210 degrees from East to NorthWest.

When we checked in our gracious handler pointed out St. Croix and Puerto Rico as the view of St. Thomas is very obvious. A couple of nights we experienced breathtaking sunsets toward San Juan.

Don't miss out on a day trip to Jost alongside St. Johns top beaches.
