“Superb Location and Service”
A group of friends rented Praia Serena for 10 days in June. Simon and his wife were superb hosts -nothing was a problem and they made our stay in Paraty extremely easy and therefore much more rewarding. The house is in a great location, and Paraty is a must for any visitor to Brazil many thanks!!
“Great people location and service”
15 guys turned up for 10 days during the football World Cup. Simon and Helena helped us with all our accommodation, transport and adventures. Our two girl Fridays, Cida and Tereza, made us great food, kept the place immaculate and always had a friendly smile. The location is relaxing being on the sea, with lots of entertainment nearby and a 15 minute stroll to the very cute tourist town of Paraty. A great time had by all.
“Amazing house, brilliant owner, my favourite stay in Brazil”
Praia Serena is just gorgeous. Myself my partner and 5 friends stayed for a week. After 7 nights of Carnaval chaos in Rio this was the perfect way to round off the trip. Only 3.5 hours from Sao Paulo and 4 hours or so from Rio its not hard to get to. We used Paraty Tours who were very good. The rooms are large, very clean and we each had our own en suite bathroom and mini fridge in our rooms. The pool was really clean, very cool and really refreshing. The hammocks are so comfy, brilliant for reading books and taking naps. The Kitchen is nice and big for preparing nice home cooked meals and the out door eating area is gorgeous. We had a BBQ a couple of times in the out door area as well as many beers. The house looks right on the beach and there is nature all around. Horses running free in the greenery around, humming birds visited daily, the little monkeys are so cute we got to feed them bananas and had the privilege of seeing the mum with 2 babies. Simon and his family were very nice and so helpful helping us sort transfers and giving us tips on the best places to eat and drink in Paraty.I can highly recommend Thai Brazil for thai Cuisine. Its only a 10 minute walk from the Old Town where there are lots of restaurants and boutique shops,boat trips and things to do. We opted for our own boat for the 7 of us and got to swim with turtles and snorkel with some lovely coloured fish. It really is a paradise and I wish I was still there now. Best holiday ever. Massive thanks to Simon and his family. I would highly recommend this holiday home to everyone and anyone who is thinking of heading to Brazil and wants somewhere to relax and of course have your own pool. Thanks again. I will post some photos on this later as they are still on our camera at the moment.
“A Comfortable Retreat”
This home is nicer than the pictures show. It is indeed right on Jabaquara beach, nice views of which can be seen from the house, especially at sunrise, beautiful. The small garden is comfortable with the pool and again pleasing views. It is an easy 10-15min walk to the heart of the historic district, but the tranquil setting of the home and Jabaquara was a welcomed retreat from some of our more intense travels the previous days. The home and rooms are spacious, well appointed and accommodating, and there is an upper "deck" where we, 13 of us, enjoyed grilling and eating outside. There is much to do in and around Paraty, and Simon is a wonderful resource, and welcoming host.
“Little Paradise in Paraty”
Hammocks everywhere you look, monkeys to feed bananas in the morning & just yards to the beach...What more could you want? This house was perfect. We had a group of 12 and fit very comfortably with room to spare. 4 rooms downstairs...some fit as many as 4 per room, some down to a private 2, living room, kitchen and outside eating area upstairs (along with more bedrooms), plenty of bathrooms, air conditioning, a private pool, gated property, keys to each individual room and wonderful hosts. Simon and his wife were incredibly hospitable and really supported an amazing vacation for us...complete with calling cabs, arranging tours, informing us about groceries and the like and making themselves readily available for if we needed anything else. Highly recommended!
“Fantastic Place to Stay in Paraty”
A great place to stay with family or friends and Simon is a great host. He hooked us up with a great breakfast spread and recommended some great tourist day trips. He also recommended places to eat and accommodated us in every way possible. Paraty is a great place to spend a few days (or longer) and if I find myself back there, I would definitely stay here again. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a place in the area.
“Wonderful House in Paraty!”
Great house in Paraty with a lot of space and especially comfortable arrangements for a big group. About a 20 minute walk to the center of town and across the street from the beach. The owner was more than accommodating and really helped us with his suggestions of things to do in Paraty. Would definitely come back here!
“awesome - great place, simon/helena super helpful”
Great place... 100 feet from the ocean, 5 minute walk from bars/restaurants. clean and comfortable, easily accommodated 12 people. Simon set up a very reasonably priced boat tour and rainforest tour. All we had to do was meet the taxis at the front of his house... good stuff.
“A little bit of Paradise”
I had a great time in Paraty I really liked the location of the house it is not in the center so you feel like you are in the country no noise only that of the birds ( and monkeys ) but at the same time it is a 5 minute drive up the road to the old town , The views are great too it is worth waking up early to see the sun rise over the islands , the house is well equipped there is WiFi and a great kitchen but no cable TV still all in all I would highly recommend this house to anyone wishing for a bit of peace and quiet away from the big city .
