Its proximity allows Paraty join the ride valuable elements of the history and culture of one of the sites of historical and natural heritage valued more Brazil. Paraty has also become an alcove of festivals, some included in the international calendar, and craft and tasteful cuisine.
Stayed at this lovely property with my mother and brother as a guest of the hostess, and it was fantastic. The house is decorated with beautiful artwork and furnishings from all over the world, and is very comfortable, with plenty of space for both privacy and relaxed hanging out together. I particularly loved the guest house with the sea view shower, the large deck surrounded by incredible plants, and being able to sleep with the sound of the ocean and jungle drifting in. I found I could literally not stay awake to read or converse with anyone once I lay down- it's just too soothing there.
Rogeria's cooking is delicious, especially the cheese pastel, a we all loved being able to eat outside every day. Even when it's raining, the vast terrace is one of the best places to hang out, especially the hammocks. Definitely bring a book or two to enjoy for the days when the weather's not so sunny (although if you forgot yours, there's a supply in one of the guestrooms). We were there in October and it was a bit overcast most of the days, although that didn't prevent us from swimming. The house's beach is very soft sand and there's nothing creepy in the water (coming from New England where there are lots of rocks and jellyfish, this was a nice change).
We also particularly enjoyed that there are now two kayaks available- the cove to the left of the house is wonderful to explore with all the massive rocks, the gorgeous beach, and the jungle growing so close to the shore. The plantings around the house were also interesting to explore- watch for the parasol ants taking apart leaves and carrying them off.
If you don't want to stay just on the island, it's an easy boat trip to the other wonders of the region. We visited Paraty for great shopping and fascinating history, as well as a local cachaca producer. I only wish there had been more time to explore further, but I hope this will not be my last visit to this magical place.
Simplesmente perfeita! Fui convidado por alguns amigos a encontrá-los em Paraty, e tive a oportunidade de passar dois dias nesta casa. A vista, a decoração, a paz e sossego proporcionados por esta habitação dispensa qualquer adjetivo. Os funcionários foram muito solícitos (o pudim da dona Rogéria estava divino! rs). Enfim, simplesmente PERFEITA. Dormi em 2 quartos diferentes, e em cada um a experiência foi ótima. O do segundo andar, pode-se ver o horizonte do mar sentado na cama, e o de baixo, próximo a praia privativa, você dorme com o barulho da água batendo nas rochas a poucos metros do quarto, causando uma paz e sossego inexplicáveis. Super indico.
We loved our stay here. Rogeria, the cook and house keeper was amazing and took great care of us. December weather was sometimes overcast, but the water is warm and you can swim off the dock. Bring a water bottle and refill to avoid wasting plastic bottles. Bring sunscreen and bug repellent. The house is open and breezy and our dog had a great time too. We explored other beaches and Paraty over the course of the week we were here. We had excellent fresh fish almost every day. It could be tough for small children with the high ledges and water - they would need to be watched. We wished we had two kayaks instead of one!! :) It was a great getaway and there is plenty of exploring and its easy to hop in the house-owned boat. The driver is very nice. Thank you for an amazing stay!
My wife and I decided to spend our honeymoon at this beautiful house in Paraty, and we could not have enjoyed it more. Everything about the house was perfect-the view, the accomodations, the cleanliness, everything. Maria Helena was the perfect host-she helped us arrange our transportation from Rio to the house, had the house stocked with food for us when we arrived, and was always available to help us decide what part of the area to explore next, and how to do it.
Her help, including the cook and the boat driver, were fantastic. The food was amazing-so much so that we stopped eating at restaurants because it wasn't as good. The boat driver was extremely professional and very accomodating, all of which made our stay so much more than we could have asked for.
In short, our stay far exceeded our expectations, and we would highly recommend this to anyone else thinking of spending time in the region. We hope to go back soon!
É difícil mencionar algo a respeito desta casa, já tão elogiada nos posts anteriores, sem ser repetitivo...
Estávamos em 2 casais com nossos respectivos filhos, cinco ao todo entre crianças e adolescentes e, à primeira vista, falta um pouco de segurança para crianças menores.
De fato a mobilidade não é das mais simples, mas justamente o menor de todos, já no dia seguinte que chegamos foi quem perguntou "podemos ficar aqui para sempre, papai?"...
Tivemos a sorte de contar com dias quentes e iluminados, que fizeram com que os passeios de barco fossem inesquecíveis, assim como todas as auroras e poentes!
Para nossa surpresa, apesar de estarmos embrenhados na mata, os mosquitos e demais insetos existem em quantidade apenas moderada. Um pouco de inseticida e repelente resolveram a questão.
Os funcionários foram sempre muito simpáticos e prestativos e a proprietária, apesar de apenas termos nos conhecido por telefone, mostrou-se uma pessoa de aura especial.
Esta aura, aliás, está presente em toda casa. Na decoração, na disposição dos cômodos e na caprichada manutenção do imóvel, que parece novo apesar de ter sido erguido há quase uma década.
Não vou me estender aos comentários gerais sobre a casa, pois apenas repetirei o que tantos outros já disseram.
O sentimento de vazio que nós experimentamos quando saímos de lá é indescritível e deu razão ao pequeno, quando ele manifestou seu desejo de lá ficar "para sempre"...
Com certeza voltaremos para matar esta saudade!
Só há espaço para elogios. A casa é aconchegante, o pessoal de apoio irrepreensíveis, o lugar é fantástico. Foram férias curtas mas bem relaxantes. Eu e minha família certamente recomendamos.
The house is located in Araujo Island ,, the second largest of the 65 islands of Paraty Bay. The island has the great advantage of being 5 minutes from the mainland (Grand Beach) and 12 minutes of Paraty (by boat) or 10 km (by car). Many of you already know the FLIP what happens in early July in Paraty. It contains also attractions for children (Flipinha) and young (Flip Zone). Worth it!
Another great attraction and the Festival of Cachaca and gastronomy that brings together the best tasting cachacas of Brazil and regional dishes, visiting distilleries and historic farms. The same happens to meiados August in Paraty.
Other Activities: visiting historical sites, adventure tourism, islands
