Tortola Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 6 Bathroom With Outstanding Sweeping Sea Views

Comfortably sleeps up to 8

Location West End Tortola, above Long Bay beach resort

Papaya villa is set in the hills above long bay in the west end of Tortola with outstanding sea views towards Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay and the USVI.

At the heart of the property is the great house with large living space, indoor and outdoor dining/living areas, gourmet kitchen with all the conveniences you would expect including a 6 burner viking stove,dishwasher,warming drawer and subzero refrigerator. Food can be enjoyed in the formal dining room or outside dining area overlooking the infinity edge pool. The patio area is equipped with an outdoor kitchen with both gas fired barbeque and pizza oven, as well as an indonesian hand crafted dining table set under a shaded pergola perfect for experiencing the outstanding Caribbean sunsets.

Vine cottage, is a large master suite with a king sized four poster bed which looks out onto the ocean and jost van dyke. The ensuite includes both indoor and outdoor showers. There is a kitchenette and a private veranda overlooking Jost Van Dyke.

Two large bedrooms lie at the heart of the estate. In one bedroom there is a four poster king sized bed with outdoor shower, the second bedroom has the convenience of two twin beds or king sized bed with an indoor shower. These bedrooms both open onto a porch overlooking the infinity pool and the ocean view.

The 4th bedroom adjacent to the landscaped courtyard of the property has two twin beds, an ensuite with rainfall shower and a kitchenette with refrigerator and coffee maker. All bedrooms can either be opened up to enjoy the sea breeze but also come with sliding screens and air-conditioning for those important cool down periods after enjoying the Caribbean sun.

There are spectacular sea views from all parts of the property and over an acre of landscaped gardens full of colorful and fragrant caribbean plants. Do not be surprised to see native hummingbirds enjoying their favourite firecracker plant. For the kids there are lots of places to explore both on the property, including the 'castle keep' area, and around long bay. For those times when you prefer a shaded and cool area, there is a lawned back garden with snoozing hammock.

The villa is designed around a beautiful infinity edge pool overlooking the warm clear waters of the caribbean sea. The pool has a deeper and shallower stepped area to allow an additional place for guests to relax and admire the view, and also to allow kids a slightly shallower area of the pool. For working off those sumptious barbeques, there is a swim current machine, which can be used for swimming laps or just for fun! The pool is heated, so can be used day and night, and is excellent for star gazing as the property's private location allows wonderful views of the clear caribbean night sky. Alternatively, star gaze from next to the outdoor fire pit on the patio area.

The area around Papaya Villa is quiet, set in the exclusive Long Bay estate. You will only hear the sound of the ocean and breeze through the palms.

Papaya villa overlooks long bay beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on Tortola (2 minutes drive). Long bay is also famous as a great spot to watch the spectacular colors of the caribbean sunset.

Just a 5 minutes drive away is Smugglers cove, which is a stunning, calm and secluded beach with great all year around snorkeling. For more action packed activities including surfing and water sports, other beaches such as Apple and Cane Garden Bay are close by, although guests may be just as happy spending all their time in the restful surroundings of the villa. The choice is all yours.

About Krista Kite

Very much the typical story of American girl and British boy, meeting in the islands way back in 1997 and deciding to stay! Work has taken us away from our family home for a spell but we will return one day. In the meantime we hope that you enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we have.

Krista Kite purchased this villa in 2009

Why Krista Kite chose British Virgin Islands

Our girls have grown up here and our Tortola home is a truly special place. We feel truly blessed waking up in sunny Tortola every day, and watching the sun go down every night. We often say that that no two sunsets are the same, and we are constantly amazed at the beauty of the colors of the sunset on the clear waters of the Caribbean sea. Let us know if you see identical sunsets - bet you never will!

What makes this villa unique

We first saw what would become Papaya Villa in 2008, and instantly fell in love with the sweeping views and idyllic surroundings. We imagined ourselves in the pool looking out to sea, and we were lucky enough to make that dream a reality. As our family home we spent many hours trying to make this our very own piece of paradise. We hope you find our home warm and inviting enabling you to cherish your experience of nature's little secrets in a relaxing, safe and carefree environment.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 18 months preparing for a perfect vacation for our adult family. We wanted time together full of great views, divine beaches, snorkeling, hanging out. We chose Tortola for our jumping off place. This villa was perfection. Sam and Sharlene answered every question in advance. The layout was just right for three couples, plenty of privacy, great family sized areas to eat inside or outside, well equipped kitchen! . Comfortable furniture, unimaginable views from the unforgettable infinity pool. If you want to experience "l'heure bleue", just relax on the patio at dusk! We recommend renting a jeep, although we also had an AWD Kia. We cooked almost every night because we had plenty of space for 3 couples to work together, laughing and sharing. I would return yearly! Before our arrival, we received reminder emails and offers of help with various needs! We had one need which was quickly attended to by Sharlene. Thanks for helping us fulfill our dream vacation!

Idyllic home away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Papaya Villa with friends and found it to be all we thought it would. We have been cruising the islands for the last five years and thought we would try being land based for a change. It turned out to be a great decision, and this villa is the reason why. As far as amenities go, it has them all. The pool provides cool refreshing views of Jost and the coastline up to Cane Garden. The rooms are all well appointed and the kitchen made for putting together some fantastic meals. Proximity to the beach is so close, and the snorkeling at Smugglers Cove is fantastic. Do look up our good friend Nigel at Smugglers as he makes great drinks as well as a shrimp, beans, and rice plate that hits the spot! Rentals can be arranged easily through Sam (our vehicles were waiting for us and the process was seamless) and J.C. was on the spot with any assistance we needed. We could have easily stayed another week and probably will the next time!

Papaya Villa- world class vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic one week (wish it was more) stay at Papaya. This special family trip was 6 adults and a 2 year old and the villa was just a perfect fit for us. I have never had such a wonderful pool experience as the infinity pool overlooking Jost Van Dyke. The villa and views were so beautiful that we hated to leave for day trips but did have several great trips including renting a boat to visit several other islands. Sharlene and team took great care of us including helping with an issue not related to the villa. We definitely hope to come back!

Fabulous vacation

  • 5 of 5

Papaya Villa is truly brilliant! We stayed a week (wish it was longer) at Papaya. 3 adults 4 children ages 12-16 and had a spectacular time. The weather was only ok but it did not matter. Our time at the house (and our trip to the Baths/Cooper Island) was the highlight of our trip. Sharlene took great care of us and I highly recommend their suggested chef who delivered a plate of fresh fruit and banana bread every other day. The villa has everything you could possibly need and then some. We will be going back.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for our two week vacation expecting a wonderful time, but curious if the villa actually would live up to all the accolades given to it. The house exceeded our expectations. The house was neat and very clean! Everything we could have needed was supplied. The kitchen was a gourmet cook's delight. The views are awesome! The management team helped us with rental cars and boat rentals. The maintenance people were great. We had a problem with the pool one day and JC was at the house within 30 minutes to assess the problem. The pool man fixed the problem the next morning. We enjoyed our two weeks and are planning a return visit. It was the most relaxing vacation ever!

Papaya Villa Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay in the Papaya Villa the first week of March 2016. We had the best vacation with another family plus 4 kids from 14-16! The kids are still talking about returning the the island and specifically the house. The views are second to none and the Management team was there if we needed anything from suggestions for boat rentals to ensureing we have everything we needed in the house ahead of time. Sam and JC who look after the property were very helpful, both before our arrival and when we were there. They ensured that the provisions we ordered and our hire car were waiting for us on our arrival and that we were met at the airport. I think the West End and round to the north coast from Long Bay to Cane Garden Bay is the preferred area to stay on Tortola with a nice undeveloped Caribbean feel and plenty of beaches and good restaurants. There is a return trip in our future!
