… “nothing typical of a resort here, just private barefoot beach romance. It's the secluded South Pacific Island we all dream about but rarely seem to find”. Our Private Beachfront Bed & Breakfast is located on secluded beaches among the old copra plantations along the picturesque seaside of Efate Island, 25 minutes drive from Port Vila, Vanuatu. If you seek romance mixed with privacy & seclusion, a peaceful escape, and if you love pristine private sandy beaches and being one-on-one with nature, you will find it all in Papaya Villa. You will have your own private bathroom with hot shower and solar power electricity, and super comfy bed. Your bungalow has unobstructed access to a number of private beaches and the abundance of pandanus and coconut palms will take your breath away. ...… “nothing typical of a resort here, just private barefoot beach romance.

About the neighbourhood
Eton has Vanuatu's best white sandy beaches. Papaya Villa is right on the beach located amongst the old copra plantations on the south eastern coast of Efate. Just 5 minutes from the famous Blue Lagoon. White crushed coral road approaches the villa through the copra plantation and its tall palms and manicured lawns to the beach.
Getting around
You have two options, you can hire a car so that you can explore the island. We will even fix you a hamper if you like, or, you can hire our driver for the day to take you wherever you would like to go. This is a relaxing option.
