"My wife and I loved the Purple Papaya and the beautiful beach it’s on. The views of the water from inside and outside the condo are amazing. We walked the beach every day and I also swam every day. It was perfect for us... We also had happy hour on the patio most nights looking out at the beautiful ocean and people watch. Perfect vacation spot!! Carcita was fabulous and went out of her to make sure we had everything we needed.
Thanks for an amazing vacation. "

"Above and Beyond All Hopes and Expectations
“From the breathtaking eastern views from the pool to the ocean, to the attention to detail in the villa, one of the most relaxing enjoyable getaways we have ever taken. Trying to figure out how soon we can get back. OK, for all you folks that want the details: From the end of the back sliding doors to the ocean is about 50 ft. We have never seen, nor stayed in any place this close to the water. All the amenities provided are pretty much brand new. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud with total back support. We made dinner in a couple of nights and found all the utensils and cookware needed. Did not need the A/C at all, just kept one of the ceiling fans running and one of the sliding doors partially open. Large walk-in shower with plenty of hot water and very good liquid shower products provided. Nice linens and towels. Read complaints about noise and proximity to Tippy's next door but a total non issue!! The villa is totally shielded from Tippy's by tall vegetation so privacy is not an issue. As far as human noise, the ocean waves and breezes are louder. The white sand beach extends easily over 2 miles in each direction and easy to walk. There is seaweed present mainly at the high tide line. The water is crystal clear and the waves are amazing to watch as they break over the reefs. As far as swimming, bottom is rocky with sand in some areas. It was very windy (10-15+ E, SE winds) during much of our stay with rough seas, so we enjoyed the beach time vs swimming and snorkeling. As far as beach traffic...there is none. You will see a person here and there walking the beach but that's about it...at one point we looked north and south on the beach (about 4 miles total) and counted 6 people, by far the most crowded we saw the beach. Most of the time there was no one in sight! However, no place is perfect There are flies...not biting flies, just nuisance flies... present everywhere on the island."

"~ Purple Papaya ~ exceeded our expectations and beyond! This is truly a slice of paradise. The goal was to relax and rejuvenate and that is exactly what happened. From the hosts quick and helpful communication to ease of check-in, to our warm welcome from Tarictia who insured our every need was met, to the beyond clean and cozy home with everything we could possibly need, to the serene pool and (basically) private pink sand beach - everything was perfect! Purple Papaya has everything you need for comfortable living including all of the kitchen necessities which we used often thanks to the recommendation of the host to bring dry food (the food on the island is expensive - next time I would bring even more food from home). There is nothing better than making a dinner and enjoying it to the sound of the waves! The space was immaculately clean and well kept - everything looked new and not worn. The bed was very comfortable and there were plenty of pillows, linens, towels, beach towels, etc. We also took use of the snorkling gear provided (there were also other beach toys and an umbrella for use). We spent most of our days lounging by the pool and taking walks down the pristine (basically private) beach or exploring the rest of the island. One thing we would recommend is renting a vehicle capable of handling rough terrain as several of the roads are not paved and very rough. Tippy's restaurant is right next door which was great for a quick lunch or dinner outing. As mentioned, the food on the island is expensive - including dining out - we spent around $70 US on lunch and over $100 US on dinners for the two of us. Also to note - if you are sensitive to late night music, Tippy's did have a live band 4 of the 9 nights we were there that ended around 10:30/11:00pm. If you are sensitive to this or an early/light sleeper, you may want to check out the Golden Chalice two doors down. Overall, I would say the Purple Papaya is by far the best Airbnb we have stayed at."
