Florianopolis townhome description

This home is American-owned and equipped with all the luxuries of an American home, located just 100 yards from the sand on Praia Mole beach. Includes a private outdoor Hot Tub, high-speed wireless internet, US VOIP phone line (unlimited free calling to the USA & Canada), air conditioning, multiple floor fans, in-house washer & dryer, a safe for laptops, passports & valuables, and a fully equipped kitchen including a blender & coffee maker.

Location, Location... This beautiful townhome is located just a 5-minute walk from one of the most beautiful & popular beaches in Florianopolis, a beach called Praia Mole (pronounced Praia Moley). To the locals, this beach is specifically known for its abundant beautiful women and big pumping surf and is my personal favorite in Brazil, which is why I bought a vacation home here.

Florianopolis (aka Floripa) is known as the safest city in Brazil and is the capital of Santa Catarina (a state in south Brazil). Florianopolis is a large island (22 miles long) with 42 different beaches. The house is located on Praia Mole beach, centrally and conveniently located on the east coast of the island. Praia Mole beach resides on a narrow strip of land that divides the lagoon from the Atlantic ocean. With the beautiful lagoon and jungle on one side of the housing complex and Praia Mole beach on the other, you are literally surrounded by water and nature. We call this area the filet mignon of the island due to it's beautiful and convenient location, just a few minutes drive to the town of Lagoa da Concecao, where you'll find many restaurants, bars, night clubs, a shopping mall, and grocery stores. And being just across the street from the beach means you can bypass all of the high-season afternoon traffic (people leaving the beach), making this convenient location extremely desirable.

NIGHTLIFE GUIDE & DESIGNATED DRIVER... That's right! This townhouse even comes with an optional bilingual tour guide for both nightlife and day/surf excursions. Your tour guide also doubles as an interpreter and designated driver. Florianopolis is popular for having some of the best nightlife in South America but you need to know where to go and how to do it, something you don't want to waste a week figuring out for yourself. Your guide will know which nightclubs are hopping on which nights and can make dinner/VIP table reservations and get you dialed in like a local.

FLORIANOPOLIS CAR RENTAL: For your convenience and savings, I can also assist you with renting a car upon arrival at one of the best rates in town. The price ranges between R$65-100 reais/day depending on options & season. Includes all taxes, local insurance, and unlimited miles.

AIRPORT PICKUP SERVICE: If you rent a car through my recommended company, they can meet you at the airport with your car and can usually give you an escort to the house or even drive you there so you don't get lost.

For more photos and a video of my house, surrounding beaches & attractions, please contact me or go to my website: 'iLoveBrazil. net'. This will give you a better idea of what to expect on your trip and why you'll continue going back to Florianopolis year after year. The best way to reach me is by email or contact form but feel free to call any time.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: I'm an American internet entrepreneur and I live in Florianopolis part time with my Brazilian wife, who I met on my first trip to Florianopolis in 2004.

                      Why the Owner Chose Florianopolis:
                      Praia Mole beach is the best location on the island year-round. Few people realize that the north end of the island is a ghost town 10 months out of the year, while Praia Mole and the surrounding area is live with action year-round due to it's proximity to the town of Lagoa da Conceicao, where most of the bars, restaurants and nightlife are located.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      Just a 5-minute walk from door to the sand on Praia Mole beach, and also a short hike through the jungle to the beautiful lagoon, which is on the opposite side of our condo complex. The trail starts just 50 feet from my front door.
