Luxurious with a distinct artistic edge, Casa Papaya is a wonderfully fruity mixture of contemporary luxury and Caribbean colonialism.
Aside from the obvious holiday box tickers, like a pool and prime views overlooking the city centre, there is a colorful originality from the stunning artwork strewn all over the house’s walls.
With at least one abstract piece in each room, it won't come as any surprise the house's owner is a part-time artist that likes to turn this beautiful house into a live studio space for his art to pose in.
Mood-lifting splashes of colour, whether it's the warm purple wicker chairs fluffed with icy blue cushions, the aqua blue headboards or clean blue of the large swimming pool, get you in the perfect mood for your Caribbean holiday – and if you're still in need of a holiday nudge, the funky palenquera statues in the stairway, almost caricature-esque in their exoticness, should do the trick.
The historical details elaborate on the ‘back-in-time’ feel you get when you're catching some winks on the antique beds. Old furniture, original tiled floor and distressed marble pillars are the perfect accessories of a design-led house that’s still humbled by its history – and has no intention of bulldozing through it.
It's big. 6 nicely sized bedrooms sleep up to 12, and there are vast common areas made for impromptu socials with your mates and any locals you meet along the way.
Trust us, with a city as convivial as your vibrant surroundings you should have no problem filling this stylish bolthole to the brim with newfound friends.
