  • Perfect Stay

    "My husband and I stayed in this spectacular house with four other family members for one week last November. Everything about this house exceeded our expectations and the stay was more comfortable than we could have imagined. This house has everything! Spacious rooms & ensuites, incredible beds, meticulously clean (with regular cleaning services from a very nice woman), and a fully supplied kitchen. The extras are stylish furniture, the most outstanding rooftop deck & pool and helpful concierge services. The location is perfect. Walk to many fantastic restaurants and shopping in Palermo, close to the metro and a short taxi ride downtown. After a week, this house felt like home, if only home was this incredible!"

  • Great apartment in a fantastic location

    "This property exceeded my expectations. It is in a fantastic location and beautifully decorated. The owner Hamish and property manager Marcela were great to deal with in helping us choose this gorgeous apartment. There is little praise I could add that has not already been said below. I hope to come back many more times."

  • Excellent townhouse located next to ideal beach and close to a great small village

    "I rented this townhouse from June 13 to June 25, 2014. I used this townhouse as my home base for the World Cup. Even though Florianopolis is very south (I was following Team USA), whenever I arrived back here, I felt refreshed and I felt like I was at home. The townhouse is very large and spacious. The soaking pool outside is not heated. I loved sitting outside at night but since it was pretty chilly, my friends and I did not use the soaking pool. The kitchen has everything you need to cook (even though I did not because the surrounding area has so many good places to eat). The dining table is nice. The TV has mostly Brazilian channels, but there are some English ones. Bathroom on main level is nice. The second floor has two spacious guestrooms with a full bath next to the guest rooms. One of the second floor guestrooms has a balcony. The master bedroom has an attached wonderful bathroom (soaking tub and shower) with double vanity and walk in closet. The master bedroom also has a balcony. Attached to the master bedroom is the loft. The loft is very open so it is not something a child should stay in. It is also not private so the master/loft sleeping arrangement needs to be considered if you are with a big family or group of friends. Once I had space in the house, I told my cousin to sleep in the newly open guestroom because he snores. Renata, the property manager, is very kind and caring. I also had a private driver, Anna, who was amazing. She picked my friends and I up from the airport and dropped us off, took us to grocery stores, told us the fun things to do around town, etc. We loved her! If you want a guide, ask for Anna. She was not too pricey for what she offered in the rides around town and guidance on what to do. The beach across from the townhouse (it is about a ten minute walk since the townhouse is located at the end of the complex..which is a good thing) is beautiful. You can walk to a sushi restaurant and a fun hostel up/down the hill near the townhouse. Boni Bar is also walking distance and is a fun location. For a night in town, you will need to take a cab. I would recommend it. There is plenty to do and to eat. I would also recommend hiking around the lagoon and taking a boat to the restaurants on the other side of the island. It was a great day when we did that. The people of Floripa are extremely nice and this is a perfect island get away. Finally, the cleaning lady was spectacular. She took her job seriously and was fantastic."

Brazil Travel Tips

Best Seasons to Visit Brazil Vacation Rentals

Brazil is the largest country in South America. A large portion of it sits within the tropics and enjoys a warm year-round tropical climate. The southern parts are more temperate and can get quite cold in the wintertime. The summer months are from October through May, and winter runs from June through September, although Rio de Janeiro and the Amazon regions rarely get cold. If you are planning a visit to either of these areas, you can choose your own travel season. If you don’t like crowds, you will want to avoid Rio de Janeiro during carnival time which occurs in February each year. Millions of people from around the world flock during this time to see the colorful parades and experience the festive vibe. If you want to explore the southern regions, the best season to travel is during the warmer summer months. You can hire a car to get around and enjoy exploring this lesser-known side of Brazil at leisure.

Getting to Brazil Lodging

The primary airport in Brazil is Garoulos International Airport in Sao Paolo. Most international airlines use this as their point of entry into Brazil and for this reason, it is the busiest airport in South America. From here, you can get connecting flights on to Rio de Janeiro, Brazilia, Manaus and various other destinations in Brazil and South America. There are daily scheduled flights that bring visitors from Europe, North America, South Africa and other South American countries. Be prepared to walk quite a distance from the aircraft through passport control and baggage claim. If you plan to stay in Sao Paolo then arrange for a private transfer from the airport or negotiate a set fare with the taxi driver. Sao Paolo is a city that never sleeps and traffic on the highway getting into the city is congested 24 hours a day. If you take a metered taxi, you may find that you have paid more than you bargained for unless you negotiate ahead of time.

Comfortable Accommodation at Brazil Villas

One of the things that may strike you as you arrive in cities such as Rio de Janeiro and Sao Poalo is the vast number of high-rise buildings. These two cities are among the most populous in the world with the vast number of people living in high-rise buildings. Many of the vacation homes are conveniently located in major tourist areas so visitors have easy access to the attractions. Unless you rent a penthouse suite, the apartments are generally quite compact. They are still functional and comfortably furnished. In general, they can accommodate between two and four adults. For those that have larger budgets, you can consider renting a villa which offers a far more spacious accommodation. Villas are generally available in the smaller towns and seaside resorts.

Rio De Janeiro Vacation Rentals

Rio de Janeiro is one of Brazil’s most popular travel destinations. The world-famous Copacabana Beach, Sugarloaf Mountain and the impressive statue of Christ the Redeemer are all well-known landmarks of the city. Located on the Tropic of Capricorn, Rio enjoys a warm tropical climate. This is one of the reasons it is such a popular vacation destination. Visitors can enjoy the beaches and city sights throughout the entire year. The most popular time to visit Rio is in February when the world-famous Carnival and street parade take place. As with most major cities, accommodations can be expensive. Vacation rentals make sense for people who plan to visit for more than just a few days. They offer more affordable accommodation options.
