About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 2 living rooms, terrace, pool

The Casa Melucia is a conceptually designed two storey house. State of the art architecture, coupled with Brazilian flair, meticulous attention to detail and an elaborate choice of construction material lends this modern, modest villa a distinctive atmosphere. A huge whirlpool has been built into the ground floor’s terrace, portals made out glass tiles brighten up the rooms and create a beautiful light show. Practically all the furniture is made-to-measure.

Despite the increase in tourism the former fishing village Canoa Quebrada has maintained its charm and equally attracts domestic and backpack tourists, kite surfers and beach lovers. The 12 kilometre long Canoa Quebrada bay offers everything the heart desires: the hustle and bustle in the “Barracas”, beach bars where fresh fish and drinks are served, the utmost calmness anywhere on the vast, fine sand beach. In the evening, Canoa Quebrada will be pulsating to the Brazilian rhythm of Forro.

Casa Melucia: Facilities and infrastructure meet the highest demands. In addition to this, there are two well-equipped kitchens, beds in European large format with quality mattresses, sanitary facilities of high standards, a TV, a DVD player and a sound system for iPods and Wireless LAN in the whole house. A parking lot for two cars and a barbecue area are also part of the facilities. The garden plants are still growing and by the middle of 2011 they will have blossomed to a decent extent. The house is in mint condition and r construction was completed in December 2010.

Casa Melucia is situated in a privileged area on a small hill. It is only 350 metres from the wonderful, sandy beach and 400 metres away from the village centre. Its breathtaking 180° panoramic view of the sea is captivating. You can really enjoy Casa Melucia’s beauty and that of its premises in utmost calm and privacy.

Canoa Quebrada: Canoa Quebrada (broken canoe) is 12 kilometres away from the provincial town of Aracati and 165 kilometres southeast of the mega city, Fortaleza. The old fishing village was discovered in the early seventies by the first backpack tourists. Despite the constantly increasing number of visitors, this bustling village has maintained its alternative charm. Besides the kilometre long, fine sand beach, its pulsating night life is also a highlight worth mentioning. On “Broadway”, this is how the shopping and nightlife street is called; one can find various restaurants and bars to enjoy a cosy dinner or a drink after a day at the beach. It is especially during holidays and weekends that large numbers of people visit this location which will be pulsating to the Brazilian rhythm of Forro. On week days the village exudes a pleasant tranquillity. The Reggae Beach Party - with its unique aura that unfolds especially at full moon - is also very famous.

Hermosa casa, pintoresca ciudad

  • 4 of 5

Casa Melucia es hermosa y comoda. Dave ayuda con todo y es muy amable. Unico detalle: faltan aires acondicionados. En las noches de calor es difícil dormir, ya que los ventiladores no dan abasto

Our families (4 adults and 2 kids) stayed 2 weeks in Casa Melucia. We appreciated every single minute. From A to Z everything was just wonderful. A lot of space, nice furniture, fully equipped kitchen. Clean and well organized, with great love for details. Big thanks to the owner Patrick and his friend Dave.

Sure we would like to come back (tomorrow!!).

Design and comfort at highest Levels!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed there for the 2nd time. Every day you stay there you realize that the designer of that beautiful house is an artist. It's amazing to discover every little details he has been paying attention to it.

The shapes of the house, the light concepts, the plays with the shadows. Even the hamrocks are positioned in a way that you get the best view of the sun, the pool or the garden. All has a concept behind but still you will very welcoming and very comfortable. I believe that's what makes it so Special to stay there. Even the house is packed with style and design, we still had the feeling of being at home at the same time. You will not find this often. The house is very well taken care of and very clean. This years highlight was the new Barbecue Pergola spot and the balcony on the upper floor which oversees the whole are and gives you a great sunset while holding your caipirinha.

We spent every night barbecuing reflecting the great days we spent there. I can definitely recomment that place! WE booked already for next year! Nick

Super! Traumhaft! Perfekt!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten die besten Ferien im Casa Melucia.

Der beste Ort um die verschiedensten Ferien zu kombinieren. Wir hatten super Familien Ferien zugleich Perfekte Kite Ferien vereint mit Partynächten!

Das Haus ist sehr Modern in einem sehr guten zustand und sehr sauber! Der Pool ist Ideal für eine Erfrischung. Mein Persönliches Highlight ist die aussen Dusche!

Zum Kiten ist die Flussmündung das Beste was ich je gekitet bin. Konstanter Wind und Flachwasser soweit das Auge reicht! Allein schon die kurze Reise zum Spot mit dem Boogie ist ein Riesen Spass.

Wir werden auf jeden Fall zurückkehren in die Casa Melucia.
