About Blue Papaya

Blue Papaya Villa is a luxurious Brand New 5 bedroom estate home in the exclusive Virgin Grand Estates. This incredible new home offers everything the good life on St. John is all about. Enter Blue Papaya through native stone walkways, and a charming trellised pergola. Lush colorful tropical foliage abounds and enthralls.
Welcome to Blue Papaya in Virgin Grand Estates

The view overwhelms. From rainbows and sailboats gliding over a glistening sea by day, to brilliant sunsets, to the twinkling lights of St. Thomas dancing in the distance on a moonlit night, the view is truly breathtaking.

The large dining table and wet bar will invite elegant dinners and lingering conversation. The gourmet kitchens offers all the bells and whistles the even fussiest cook could ask for. .

A short walk down a covered stairwell brings you to the main pool deck. A large pool with a beach entry gives guests a place to swim or simply cool off while sunning and enjoying the magnificent westward view of the Caribbean Sea. The antique brick patio offers options for both sunning and shade, with ample seating and lounging

From the pool deck, Blue Papaya features two additional king bedroom suites. One of these sits just steps from the pool, and opens onto yet another, more casual bedroom, complete with wet bar. This area is perfect for young families, or for use as a tranquil lounge in this beautiful suite.

Blue Papaya is perfectly situated in Virgin Grande Estates, a quiet, private, gated community. You are about a 10-15 minute drive to Cruz Bay and to North Shore beaches. Walking into the upstairs main living area, there is a large sitting area for game night, dining table, bar area, large up to date kitchen with blender, icemaker in freezer, plenty of cooking utensils, toaster and coffee maker. The porch is AMAZING and had some of the best sunsets I have ever seen on St John. There is master suite in a separate building (but connected) and two master suites at the pool area. Also a half bath at pool area and a grill. The entire villa has A/C. There were plenty of towels including beach towels, coolers and beach chairs. Destination St. John was extremely helpful and quick to respond with all questions, excellent management company! We can't wait to book again for another vacation in paradise!!!!

We recently stayed at this gorgeous property. Blue Papaya exceeded all of my expectations. There are 4 master type bedrooms, 2 upstairs and 2 on pool level. They are all very equal and no one felt like they got a less desirable space. A 5th bedroom also serves as a lounge area (how we used it). The pool is awesome, with a zero entry. There is also great conversation area on a covered deck right off the living area, where we enjoyed cocktails and sunsets each night. It sits high on a hillside but a quick 5 minutes to Cruz Bay. It has beautiful views of outlying islands, St Thomas and the bay below, it also gets a perfect sunset! The property managers were great. Destination St. John rep met us at dock, and showed us around, and the office promptly answered a few questions we had. They even left a wonderful basket of goodies for us to enjoy on our arrival. We will be back! Thank you Destination St John!

My husband and I stayed at Blue Papaya for 2 perfect weeks. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place! First of all the location is outstanding, close enough to town but high up enough for beautiful views. We would hit the beaches during the day but made a point to be home in time for the magnificent sunsets every evening poolside! We loved hanging out either on the upstairs balcony, which was really nice for outdoor dining and relaxing, or around the pool. Every one had their own private room and bath, and all were equally impressive. The beds, linens, and bathrooms were well appointed. The pictures, while lovely, really don't do this home justice, as it is more lovely in person. We cooked Thanksgiving dinner and the kitchen has all the amenities necessary for a gourmet. Destination St. John set up our Jeep rentals, was always very friendly if we had any questions and check out was a breeze. I HIGHLY recommend Blue Papaya and Destination ST. John.

We rented Blue Papaya from Dec. 28th to January 5th. Once again we had a wonderful stay at this terrific house and enjoyed this year's trip every bit as much as last year's. The house is lovely and large enough so that we were not on top of each other. The person in the bedroom next to the baby did not hear the baby at night--a testament to the construction of the house. We are already looking forward to our stay next year.

What can I say,this villa is beautiful! Clean, well-maintained, very comfortable with amazing views. Although there were only 5 of us, the villa can comfortably accommodate more guests. The villa is equipped with modern appliances (including 2 set of washer/dryer) and everything was in great working order. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and has fantastic views. Some of the highlights for us included...Beach-entry style pool was perfect for our young children, the master on the pool deck’s sitting room was great to double as our children’s bedroom, the beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was very well-stocked and the stone showers, wood-work, brick floors and color scheme were simply beautiful. Perfect family vacation! And the management company, Destination St John's booking process, quick replies to all my questions and help with all our needs were excellent. As an owner of vacation rental properties, I highly recommend Blue Papaya! We will be back!

We have stayed in this great home 2 times, and have booked it again for next year. The views are among the best I've ever seen from a villa. We stayed with another couple and four children. The pool is perfect with a beach entry and gets sun all afternoon. This house is very comfortable but very luxurious amenities. Really high quality linens and furnishings. Great kitchen very well equipped. The bedrooms are all really equal, with beautiful mahogany beds. and baths with stone showers! There is 5th bedroom space that is adjacent to a lower master bedroom, great spot for our kids. Beautiful landscaping, very well maintained. Greeter always helpful and Destination St. John staff is great to work with. Virgin Grand Estates has upscale villas and a gate, it is the nicest neighborhood by far.

We return each year to this heaven on earth. Blue papaya offers every comfort of home with high-end appliances and luxury amenities. Whether the day is spent lounging by the pool with its breathtaking views, exploring nearby Cruz Bay shops and restaurants, or snorkeling, swimming or sunbathing at one of the many St John beaches, we are always happy with our island home away from home. Blue Papaya is simply beyond compare!

...The staff at Destination St. John were very nice, accommodating, and quick to respond to our (literally) last minute request. They had the villa cleaned & ready the next day, with a staff member ready to meet us & show us to the villa...they even put a very nice welcome basket of food/snacks in the refrigerator. Another villa rental company sent me a rude email saying they were too busy to schedule a cleaning service...I'm so glad we stayed with DSJ...Great service!...I plan to use them exclusively in the future.

...We couldn't have been happier with our stay at the 'White Cottage' as well as the customer service from Destination St. John. From my initial contact with the company I was very pleased. Any email of inquiry was immediately responded to and the one phone conversation I had while booking my trip was with a very pleasant lady who I enjoyed speaking with. Our greeter was at the previously agreed upon meeting point on time and was very professional.
