Hidden Gem
We spent three days at the wonderful Papaya Villa. Stoney (our host) picked us up from town and drove us to the villa, providing us with information about the local area and places to visit. Upon arrival we were shown around the beautiful property and welcomed by Marcus. During our stay we were able to borrow some snorkelling gear and explored lots of amazing coral reefs and beaches all within a close walk to the property. We also loved being able to walk around the bush at night. Stoney and Marcus were kind and generous hosts, who we enjoyed having a chat and drink with. The breakfasts provided were fantastic and the lunches/dinners we had cooked were delicious and very good value. We also took part in a cooking class at the property with Marcus. He was an excellent chef and teacher - and the seafood paella and Spanish churros he taught us to make were delicious! Thank you Marcus and Stoney for an incredible experience - we will be back.

Beautiful B&B right on the shore of Eton reef. The hosts were incredibly friendly, warm and helpful. Absolutely beautiful beaches and natural ocean swimming pools to explore within a few minutes walk of the Villa - white sand and clear water on this side of Efate. Nice to get away from the hustle and bustle and reconnect with nature. Close to Blue Lagoon.

Your share of paradise!
Arriving, we were greeted warmly by Stoney and Marcus. The main house and the villa are both impressive, and spotlessly clean throughout. The villa room itself is quite small, but the numerous outdoor spaces for lounging are more than ample. The bed was very comfy, and the bathroom was very clean, ample size, and best water quality that we experienced in Vanuatu. Although no in room fridge, Marcus was happy to share the house fridge with us. The house is off the grid, utilising solar energy, water collection, and clean, clear underground spring water. The wifi was the fastest and most reliable that we encountered on the island. The property is located within a quiet and safe residential area of large beach front land plots which are magnificently landscaped, offering seclusion, privacy, and amazing walks along the sea side with spectacular views of a natural, unspoiled environment. The nights are very quiet, with no light pollution, so the night sky is dazzling! Throughout our stay, we were made to feel very welcome by Marcus and Stoney. Marcus, a chef by trade, took great pleasure in preparing delicious meals for us, using the freshest, organic ingredients. In essence, we were so fortunate to have a “personal chef”. Stoney,with her boundless energy, was always giving us the best local tips and advice, inc a reef walk which was stunning, and drove us to the local blue hole for a swim. If you are looking for a home stay with a difference...this is it! Truely fabulous
