Marcus Xavier

Marcus started his affair with food at a very early age. He took it forward to open his own catering company in his early twenties, and as fate or fortune would have it, his company became very successful, and he built his business around out-catering to movie premiers, art gallery openings and launches, catering for celebrity musicians and ‘A’ list clients. Over the years, he has gleaned the odd prize for his culinary skills, but what he is most proud of is the joy that his food brings to his family.

I could not recommend Papaya Villa enough. It truly was an unforgettable experience. From check in to check out our experience was only positive. Due to a cyclone and a delayed arrival, they made every effort to ensure that the property was ready and that someone was there to check us in. The property owner and local contact kept us informed throughout and gave us regular updates regarding the cyclone. Upon arrival the property was in immaculate condition. The villa is stunning and provides the ideal tropical getaway. The private beachfront location provided amazing views. If you are after a private relaxed getaway I would highly recommend this property. The fresh coconuts and delicious papayas were also a treat!

“True barefoot Luxury". Spent a delightful and chilled Christmas here! Prime beachfront to ourselves. Awesome reef, beach, views, fishing, walking, swimming, reading, jigsawing, sundowners with no one to share. Well appointed, beautiful home in gorgeous, breezy, tropical location. Cooking Paella with Marcus and Stoney made for a fabulous, fun and tasty afternoon! A special place which is great value for money. Highly recommended!

WOW! Arrived a few hours ago – have had a wander down the beach and settled in to the house now. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us – it’s pretty special. You may have to send security to drag me out kicking/screaming.

“A very memorable getaway, it was absolute bliss!” A secluded villa, beautifully built and presented. Perfect if you are looking to escape, relax and just enjoy the simple pleasures of life. The highlights were the private beach, accommodation, the deck and of course Anniesse and Sammy who looked after us during our stay. If you are looking for unique self contained accommodation, outside of the tourist areas where you have privacy then Papaya Villa is perfect!

“The house was beautiful”. Actual photos don’t do it justice. I love to cook and the kitchen was great, stove took a while to warm up but still worked. Privacy was amazing and you felt very secure. The ocean was footsteps away and port villa was only 20 mins away if you rented a car. All in all great place and wouldn’t change if given another opportunity to book elsewhere on the island.
