Wonderful location - and comes with a great cook!
We had a great time at Casa Cairucu – the house is amazing and in an incredible location, the best place we stayed in South America. Harry the guide was very helpful, Luis the boatman was friendly and his wife Adriana who is the housekeeper and cook was excellent – she is an excellent cook and we enjoyed eating everything she prepared.
Relaxing beach house near beautiful Paraty
We took the owner’s advice and walked to the beach located 40 minutes away; we were suitably thirsty by the time we got there (carrying a toddler in that heat is no small feat!) and loved our lunch at the baracca. We also visited beautiful Paraty and generally lazed around on the nearby beaches, in the hammocks, and within close proximity to the much-needed fans! At one point an impressive thunderstorm helped clear the air although it’s worth my mentioning that as this is an eco-house, there is no air conditioning, which can be a little exhausting in the intense humidity and heat. I can happily say it didn’t keep us awake, though, and there’s always the sea to take a dip in during the day.
Harry (our meeter-and-greeter) was great, very helpful, and Adriana (our cook) was fantastic, very sweet and discreet; we’d barely notice her being there until a yummy lunch was served! I’m relieved to say that on no occasion did I stumble across a large, hairy spider!
A little taste of paradise
We stayed at Casa Cairucu for 4 nights. What a paradise, especially for our early-teenage children! They quickly voted it the champagne moment of our excellent South American holiday. The house is a dream, the outlook restful, the sea temperature was exactly right, and the watersports were varied and catered for all ages. The 'life support system' - Harry, Adriana and Flavio - ensured that everything ran smoothly and helped make our stay carefree and memorable. Paraty was a delightful surprise too. Well done Simon and Fabi, and thanks for letting us into your idyllic secret.
My wonderful stay at Casa Cairucu
My friends and I stayed for just short of a week at Casa Cairucu. Words simply cannot do this house justice. I'm a professional videographer so I maybe my photos can! It's incredible and not just the beautiful location and the house but also the fantastic service, Harry our guide has a superb knowledge of the area, he is also extremely friendly and a true gentleman.
The boat transfer in had to have been the nicest transfer I've ever had, the views are just beautiful. While I was staying at Casa Cairucu, I could really tell no expensive has been spared when it comes to ensuring the look and comfort of the house. All the bedrooms had fantastic views and my shower even had a great view! The beds were very comfortable too.
On a arrival we took a look inside the equipment cupboard to find everything we would need to explore the area, torches, snorkelling gear, and kayaks. We had so much fun staying here, it was the perfect getaway haven for me to enjoy with my good friends.
Its hard to pick a favourite part of the stay, I saw wild monkeys on the near by island, swam at night in the warm crystal water, swam with fish and turtles, I woke up to beautiful landscapes every morning.. it was all super!
If you're thinking about coming here and I can only say one thing do it! I'll certainly be coming back!
Thank you Richard, great to hear and we look forward to your next visit! Simon and Fabiola
The wonderful Casa Cairucu
We were thrilled with our stay at Casa Cairucu. We were all enchanted with the house and thought the setting was out of this world. As I said in my note in the visitors book; no photo can do the house justice. It needs to be seen to be believed. We had brilliant weather and Adriana was great as was Pablo (the boatman) who took us all out for the day on our second day. We really hope to be back some day soon on another of our visits to Brazil. Until then we will live with lots of happy memories of our magical stay at the house.
Thanks you so much for your kind words - we are delighted you enjoyed your stay at our house so much and we hope you can visit again sometime. um abraco
Perfect place for relaxation and natural beauty
We spent a wonderful few days at Casa Cairucu. The surroundings are absolutely stunning -- blue blue seas and jungle. The house feels very remote but is comfortable, clean and beautifully bright and airy. I loved the bedrooms and bathrooms in particular, as well as the extensive balcony that surrounds the house and is the perfect spot for reading or watching the world go by.
We swam, ate and read! It was bliss. We barbequed one night which was fantastic! The only thing I would have changed was the weather (it happened to rain when we were there)! I'd definitely recommend a boat trip to explore the neighbouring islands and beaches, a kayak to the opposite island, daily swims and a day trip to the beautiful Paraty.
Dear Emma and Abbie,
Thrilled you enjoyed your stay so much, despite the weather! We'll try harder to bring out the sun next time. Simon and Fabiola
Sea front beach house with incredible views - close to beautiful beaches and the charming historical city of Paraty. Casa Cairuçu takes its name from its spectacular location. A few steps from the calm, protected waters of Paraty Bay, the house is located inside the Environmental Protection Area (APA) of Cairuçu surrounded by pristine beaches, uninterrupted swathes of rainforest and traditional fishing communities. There are no roads or cars to disturb the views, just forest paths, passing fishing boats and the sounds of the sea.
