About the property

This house was built with love for me to live in so it is beautiful, comfortable and lived in. It is situated 10kms from the historical center of Paraty in a small condominium with only three houses. The feeling you have is that you are on an island but you are ten minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Paraty, by car or bus. 
The house has 4 bedrooms: 3 with double beds and the fourth, with a single bed. One of the rooms is large enough to accommodate children on a single bed/couch because it is like a small apartment. Of these rooms, 2 are suites (with independent bathrooms attached) and 2 share a common bathroom.
 I can host up to 8 people.There is a central terrace where one lives because of the cool breeze that comes from the sea and because of the amazing view. The living room, dining room and kitchen all open to each other. The beauty of this arrangement is that while a person cooks, the other people can keep him/her company by sitting at the bar which separates the kitchen from the dining room. There is a fireplace in the living room. And there is a wonderful deck where you can sunbathe, enjoy the superb view or have a candlelit dinner.

Outside, you can indulge in the “ofuro”, a japanese style jaccuzzi located in the garden with a magnificent view or cool yourself in the outside shower.

All the tableware and linen is lovely, lots of pans and utensils for you to cook a perfect meal! The bed linen is all 100%cotton. 
If you want someone to cook for you, it can be arranged with an extra cost. The caretaker comes by every day to see if you need anything and has a phone where she can be reached in case of necessity.

In the kitchen there are two refrigerators, a microwave oven and a conventional stove. There is a large laundry room with a washing machine, a drying machine and a freezer and lot’s of place to dry clothes and put away your luggage.

The house is located in between two beaches: the first one is a fisherman's community where you can find boats for rent, a fishmonger with fresh arrivals everyday, a small basic supermarket and a great restaurant right on the beach. Renting a boat is a must: the bay of Paraty is divine, scattered with tiny islands where you can stop in creeks to swim and snorkel.At least one day must be set aside for this. I can recommend a nice boat with a responsible fisherman captain. On the other side you have a small, tropical beach where you can swim. This little beach is very calm and safe therefore perfect for children. They are both walking distance since right below the condominium. 
The house is surrounded by lush tropical vegetation you can admire from the deck or enjoy by walking in the beautiful garden. If you are fond of birdwatching, you will love to sit on the deck at the end of the afternoon to watch the birds and the sunset. And the little monkeys that come around!

And when you get tired of all this peace and quiet you can go to Paraty!

Paraty is a colonial town with whitewashed walls and colorful doors and windows. You will love to wander in the cobblestone streets and hear a guide tell you all about the history of this 17th century town. It is full of small boutiques, charming bars and restaurants. You can also find a number of tourist companies that can take you to the waterfalls or to taste some “cachaça”, the local liquor, at a distillery. They will also help you find places to do kayaking, stand paddle or tree climbing. You can also rent bicycles.

With all this you can spend a marvelous time at my house! It is the perfect location for perfect vacations!

Welcome and have a wonderful time!

I have lived in Brazil and in France and am a citizen of both countries which I love. Everywhere I go I like to make a nice and special 'nest', a unique place where I will feel comfortable and enjoy having friends, family and guests. I love to share the places I enjoy! Paraty is one of these special places. It is special in all aspects and my house is really the jewel in the crown! It has a very special energy to it that makes the place absolutely magical. It is nestled in the tropical vegetation, hidden to all prying eyes, alittle bit of paradise I would love to share with you!

I love to travel, I deeply appreciate everything that is beautiful, from art to views, objets to movies, a painting or a photography. I had a business for eighteen years and now I'm turning my enthusiasm for sharing into another business: I am a trip consultant and guide to France and Brazil. I have chosen specific places that I particularly know and like and accompany travelers to these places. I enjoy it immensely! Renting my house is my way of sharing all the beauty that surrounds that magical place.

I hope to host you very soon!

SIMONE RASKIN purchased this house in 1989

Why SIMONE RASKIN chose Paraty

I was born in Rio and have always loved the sea. I had a dream of someday having a house by the sea. When I went to Paraty in 1984, I immediately knew this is where I wanted to have a piece of land to build my nest. And so I did. I built my house and in 1989 I moved in to live in it for 8 years. I put a lot of love and hard work to transform this piece of wild land into a lush tropical garden and a beautiful, comfortable home.

What makes this house unique

The spectacular view you have from my house, the feeling you are in the middle of nature like on an island and yet you are just 10 minutes away from Paraty, make this place very, very special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A marvellous house located at a marvellous place within a beautiful park-like garden, offering fantastic views towards the sea with nice sunrises. The children enjoyed the beach nearby, which ist calm and easy for children. They could walk there in their own in 5 minutes. Daria, the person who received us was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on bist trips.

If you ever imagined staying on an architect designed property by the sea, like the ones that featured on magazines (you can read the magazne yourself at the property), this is one of them! Fantastic views, plenty of living space, almost private beach within 5 min walk... you cannot ask for more! I endorse all the reviews, the host was great, totally recommend!

Chez Simone

  • 5 of 5

A stunning property on a promontory close to Paraty, with beaches on either side and a host of beautiful islands a very short boat ride away. The view is spectacular, tuquoise blue sea and a myriad of islands as far as the eye can see. The house is on two levels, very spacious and tastefully and lovingly decorated, with excellent bathrooms, a very well equipped kitchen and a spacious sundeck. It is surrounded by exuberant tropical vegetation stretching across well kept gardens. Sunset looking out over the sea is extraordinary, with the only sounds of little fishing boats out in the bay. A wonderful place to relax but close enough to enjoy the restaurants, shops and colonial architecture of Paraty.

This is a beautifully designed and decorated property with magnificent sea views and surrounded by luxurious tropical gardens, thus creating a serine and calm atmosphere. Situated in an idyllic location between two beaches and near by a fisherman’s village, fresh fish shop, local bars and restaurants all within a walking distance. The interaction with Simone was very pleasant and she was extremely helpful regarding all aspects of the rental. Daria the house keeper was delightful and the only way to describe Simone and Daria is as “Lovely human beings”. My family and I cannot wait to stay in Simone’s house again.

Kind regards from Claudio, Katie and Taiguara

Un pequeño paraiso, maravilloso!!!

  • 5 of 5

Acabamos de pesar una increíble semana en la casa de Simone que resultó mucho más linda y agradable que en las fotos, un verdadero pequeño paraíso.

La ubicación y la vista son simplemente un lujo, con una playa muy muy cercana (Prahina) en medio de un pequeño pueblo de pescadores (Praia Grande) con algunas tiendas y un exquisito restaurante (Qiosko San Francisco) en la playa. En el muelle de Praia Grande, literalmente casi a la entrada del camino a la casa, se contratan botes para paseos a las islas o simplemente cruzar a la Isla do Araujo, muy muy linda también.

Simone siempre fue muy atenta y rápida en responder y entregar valiosas sugerencias, lo mismo que la persona que trabaja con ella al cuidado de la casa, Daría que es encantadora.

Pasamos una semana de vacaciones en familia maravillosas y recomiendo la casa un 100% a quien quiera disfrutar del mar y las vistas en este rincón de Paraty.

My house is located on a peninsula, between two beaches 10km from the historical center of Paraty:on one side a charming little beach where you can swim and on the other, a fisherman's village with a beach where you can rent boats to explore the bay of Paraty and go snorkeling, savor typical local gastronomy with your feet in the sand or buy fresh fish from the local fishmonger. The bay of Paraty is scattered with tiny islands that form little creeks with emerald water where you can swim. Spending at least a day on a boat, exploring these beautiful tropical jewels is a must! When you go downtown to Paraty you will be enchanted by the simple beauty of this colonial town with its whitewashed walls and colored doors and windows. You can spend a day strolling through the maze of little streets filled with tempting boutiques, bars and restaurants. You can also visit its churches and the local museum which tells the story of Paraty.

If you like to hike, do stand up paddle and kayaking you will find various possibilities in Paraty too including tree climbing and trellis trails. Paraty is surrounded by mountains so there are quite a few waterfalls you can discover and refresh yourself in.

Paraty also has quite a large number of festivals and traditional feasts. Make sure to go to the Tourist Center and find out what the attractions are.
