Papaya Villa at The Hills

6 guests · 3 bedrooms · 3.5 baths
Like an automatic filter, sunshine casts a golden glow over pool, patio, and great room at this Italian-inspired villa on a St. John hillside. It’s one of several villas clustered like a Mediterranean hilltop town above the harbor, commanding views over the ocean to neighboring St. Thomas. Walk to the shared clubhouse or drive down to dining and the ferry docks in Cruz Bay.
Watch boats move through the channel and birds flit across the sky from the two-level terrace, which features plenty of loungers gathered around the private swimming pool, plus a barbecue and alfresco table that invite you to stay out and watch the sunset.
Double doors lead from the sun-splashed warmth of the terrace into the shade of the great room, whose polished marble floors are cool underfoot. Settle into the sofa and chairs here, plan the next day’s adventures around a dining table for 6, or refuel before the next activity at the breakfast bar in the fully equipped kitchen.
It’s a short walk from the villa to the fitness center and clubhouse at The Hills for a few laps in the shared pool, a stint on the rowing machine, or a cocktail at the bar. Drive or take a taxi down to Cruz Bay to stroll amid shops and restaurants or to arrange a snorkeling or diving excursion. You can also set off to one of the 7 beaches within a 9-kilometer drive.
