  • Great location and space for a family

    "There was enough space for our multi generational family of 7 who stayed here for 10 days in August. It was great to have washer and dryer available. Subway station and grocery store are within 10 minutes walk, and you can reach the beach in 5. Since we have 3 small children, it was nice to be near a playground (there's a school nearby). The owner was very helpful with storing our luggage after checkout while we explored for a few more hours before heading to the airport. Only thing to note is that someone, somewhere in the building smokes, and the smell would get into the apartment sometimes. The road outside was either empty or bumper to bumper traffic (not sure if that was due to Olympic events in the area) Overall, the building was peaceful, clean, and nicely situated for our needs. Perfect place for our first international family vacation!"

  • Top family time at an island idyll....

    "Firstly, Maria Helena was so easy to deal with, helpful and pragmatic, and arranged our transfers from GRU. Thank you! What a sense of adventure leaving the jetty on the mainland for the 10 minute transfer by the house's boat to the island! The house was as described, and did not disappoint. We did not need the teenager room below the main house as the children all used the top dwelling, and it was no bother for the house staff to move a third bed into one of the rooms. Beautifully appointed, large wine glasses, plenty of ice cube facilities and satellite TV, periodic wifi, a/c in the bedrooms, and few mosquitoes. And the views....wow.....having staff (boatman, cook/housekeeper, maid) was not intrusive. The wonderful beach was great at low and high tide, as was the kayaking, even if an 11 year old thought the other island was slightly closer than it was....and we had some communication issues mostly about meal choices which added to the fun, as Rogeria was great! We curtailed our use of the outside shower as the few storms seemed to miss us and so didn't fill up the tanks, but we never once ran out. So some tips..... Do go the Carlao supermarket in Pararty. Better choice of food, although the other one did have a fair choice of wine that you will need to take with you. There are plenty of fishmongers from Carlao back to the harbour side in Paraty and are cheaper. You can even get the boat to pick you up from Paraty and not Praia Grande. Only 20 mins, so easy for day tripping. At Praia Grande small shop for snacks and essentials, and a great fishmonger. On the island there is a tiny shop that shuts at 2pm. We went to Mamangua, 40 mins by boat. Yes, interesting, but just good fun to be out in the boat, and take a lunch stop if need be with the views. We ate at Turbarao on the island a couple of times, and got picked up later by the boat. I suggest you walk there first and not back to the house, as it is easy to take a wrong path! Behind the house (up 142 steps!) and turn right, just 10 minutes to a lovely beach bar with great fried seafood and chips. On way back you can drop down to the tiny beach and swim back around the rocks to the house. There is a list of key food ingredients in English and Portuguese in the house, but no other English instructions so Google Translate came to the rescue! Indeed, I would suggest using Alfonso for your trips around Paraty and airports as he can speak English, Spanish and Portuguese and is fun. A special place."
