We have stayed here twice now and we love it! It's small but just enough space and has exactly what you need! Very beautiful and private.

Please buy an “on demand” hot water heater. The hot water ran out both times I washed my hair.

The Papaya Suite was just right for our stay on St. John. The place was clean and comfortable, just right for 2 travelers who spent their days out but wanted a quite place at night. Although we had a vehicle, at night we used the cab services

Beard guy was unkind about the gravel. Adding info on how to utilize 4WD would be useful as we did not know. Great place to stay. Would also suggest a tree trim so the bottom unit can see Cruz bay.

Renters without vehicles should advise taxi drivers to take them to "the hills," otherwise the majority of them don't know where to go and will refuse to take you (I suppose it was formerly known as Seeranoosah). The unit overall is very clean and
