About the Property

Paiva Beach, 4 Bedroom Suites, Private Swimming Pool, Large Rec. Center


Whether your itinerary calls for sun, sand and solitude or an energetic get-away with a Latin beat, our villa is sure to provide the experience you're looking for.

Visit WWW.DESTINATIONBRAZIL.BIZ to see additional photos of this property and descriptions (with photos) of our other luxury oceanside villas in Reserva do Paiva.

Morada da Peninsula Condominium is located on Paiva Beach in the large planned neighborhood of Reserva do Paiva on the northeast coast of Brazil in greater Recife. Morada da Peninsula is perfect for those seeking a hassle-free, safe and relaxing time in a tropical paradise. This is your perfect get-away destination on a pristine beach with crystalline waters. Because your security is paramount, the condominium is a gated community that offers locked gates, perimeter security cameras, and security guards on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Relaxation at its Finest:

Your own private swimming pool awaits you in the front yard of your villa. Sit relaxing on the patio with a cold drink in hand, jump in the pool for a cooling swim, soak up some sun on one of the chaise lounges or enjoy a delicious barbecue dinner cooked on the brick barbecue in the kitchen/bar area of the patio. This is the life!

You are just a stone throw away from the beach. Take a walk on beautiful Paiva Beach, enjoying the sound and motion of the waves and the warm sand between your toes. This particular section of the beach, while great for walking or sitting under an umbrella and enjoying a cold drink and the beauty and sound of the surf, is not considered safe for swimming because of sharks.

The Recreation Center is replete with activities: swimming pools; indoor clay tennis court; billiards; Ping-Pong table; foosball; Kid's Club; game room; fully-equipped fitness center with modern equipment; saunas; massage rooms; outdoor Jacuzzi hot tubs; large kitchen and dining room for parties; a night club for private use; a cinema with 21 plush reclining seats for private showings; a soundproof garage band room for those musicians who like to get loud with their music without bothering other guests and residents; large patio, with chairs and umbrellas, that overlooks the swimming pools and the ocean. The patio has a covered section and an open section. A short 10-minute walk from your villa is a playground area for children, a soccer field with artificial turf, and a multi-sport court, including basketball.

For joggers and bicyclists, there are 4.4 miles (7 km) of parallel bicycle and jogging paths on the perimeter of the residential resort of Reserva do Paiva. Also, there is a jogging path (Pista de Cooper) that runs right in front of Casa 15.

Reserva do Paiva and Surrounding Areas

The taxi drivers listed below have been servicing me and my renters for over 10 years. All of them are trustworthy, dependable and safe drivers. Tell them that you are renting from Bob and Dalva. The one downside is that they speak only Portuguese. However, the English-speaking concierges at Morada da Península Condominium can place the call for you and give them instructions. You will be in very good hands with any of these men. Their taxi stand is in Joabatão dos Guararapes, across from the Hotel Dorisol, and it is only a 15-minute drive from there to Reserva do Paiva.

Scuba diving excursions can be arranged in Boa Viagem, 30 minutos away.

The upscale restaurant and night club scene is in Recife in the Boa Viagem Beach area, 30 minutes from Morada da Peninsula.

Day trips might include Gaibu and Suape to the south, twin towns with clear, calm waters ideal for relaxing and kayaking, and boating around nearby islands along the 15-mile coastline. The tiny beach town of Porto de Galinhas, only 35 minutes south of Morada da Peninsula, is one of the nicest beach destinations in all Northeast Brazil. It is known for its crystal-clear water, its lovely beaches, and the tide pools that form in the nearby reef.

To the north of Marada da Peninsula, visits to Recife Antigo (especially to Rua do Bom Jesus) and Olinda merit your attention. The 'Oficina Cerâmica Francisco Brennand'(Francisco Brennand Ceramic Workshop) is a popular destination. The Casa da Cultura in Recife is a 19th-centuary city prison that has been turned into artsanal shops. This is a great place to find the special gift to take home with you.


Manager info

About: Bob grew up in a small town near Eugene, Oregon USA. Dalva, his wife, was born and raised in Recife, Brazil, where she has a large extended family. Their children and grandchildren live in the United States, Brazil and Costa Rica. Attracted to adventure and foreign lands, Bob first came to know Brazil as a Peace Corps Volunteer. A few years after that experience, he served in Guatemala as an Associate Peace Corps Director. His love and interest in people led him to a career in school counseling, during which time he founded a small nonprofit that provides academic scholarships to impoverished Brazilian children. He has degrees from the University of Washington and the University of Oregon. For sixteen years, he was a member of the Metropolitan Rotary Club of Eugene. Dalva is a living encyclopedia of Brazilian music and northeast Brazilian culture. She is renowned among family and friends for her delicious traditional regional cuisine. A quintessential northeasterner, she is passionate about her northeastern culture and its traditions. To know Dalva is to love her. She is an unofficial Brazilian ambassador par excellence. Interestingly, she is a citizen of Brazil, Italy (her grandfather immigrated to Brazil) and the United States. She thinks three passports are enough. In retirement, Bob and Dalva split their time between living in Eugene, Oregon and Recife, Brazil.

Why Paiva, Cabo de Santo Agostinho - PE, Brazil:
Tropical beauty; tranquility; safety; closeness to a large city, but off by itself in a quiet, relaxing setting; modern and complete recreation center with concierge service very close to the villa; and all of the amenities offered by a 5-star residential condominium. A Greg Norman-designed 9-hole golf course is planned for the future.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Reserva do Paiva is an eco-friendly residential resort that is destined to become one of South America's signature vacation getaways. Also being developed at Reserva do Paiva are a marina, equestrian center, shopping areas, more upscale restaurants, a spa, office space, and medical facilities. Already in place are the usual recreationl amenities, including tennis courts, soccer fields, jogging and biking paths, and recreation centers.
