Papaya Villa was lovingly designed by her owners, Marcus and Stoney, just a few years ago. They fell in love with this unspoilt corner of Efate and instinctively knew it was the perfect place for their holiday house. Papaya Villa reflects the owner's desire to disconnect and unwind, to be completely immersed in the unspoilt, natural beauty of Vanuatu. The villa is stunning and truly welcoming. You want to stay here! Inviting natural timbers and cool adobe walls beckon you to sit down, unwind.

Papaya Villa is located at Eton Reef, just 25 minutes from Port Vila. An outstandingly beautiful home, Papaya Villa reminds you of the Mediterranean, inspired by the owner's Portuguese heritage. Papaya Villa is a luxury retreat for you and your partner, or a party of four. Retreat, rejuvenate, unwind, talk, cook, swim, eat, drink, sleep, read. Disconnect and reconnect. Papaya Villa is so peaceful you will feel relaxed within minutes of your arrival and won't want your time here to end.

The water is warm all year round and the reef is unspoilt by tourism. Explore the reef at your leisure any time of the day, or swim in the natural lap pool that is calm at all times, protected naturally from the ocean by coral walls. It is delightful and it is all yours! Papaya Villa is one of just a handful of properties around Eton Reef, and your stay here is unmarred by tourist groups, unwanted noise and distractions.

Environmentally self-sustaining, the villa relies on solar power and a natural waste disposal system than is environmentally friendly. Papaya Villa is WiFi free. Sound perfect? It is so easy to just slip away from the hectic pace of life and truly unwind. Find your true self again without the constant stress of 24/7 contact. Detox digitally and reconnect personally with yourself, your partner and close friends.

Eco-friendly doesn't mean luxury free. Papaya Villa is the ultimate balance between modern life and natural living. Feel relaxed and happy at Papaya Villa.

  • Really special place

    Really special place. Efate is beautiful, same as the drive to the house & entryway. Vanuatans are warm & friendly. The island gets better & better. The house is a leisurely 25-30min drive from Port Vila. Private beach/reef runs in front of the house far as you can see...just for you. Hear the waves crashing in the bedroom. Great kitchen, groundsman brought fresh lobster & fish. Sunrise&sunsets. Blue Lagoon 3mins away. Paradise!
