“THE perfect place”

Reviewed 10 May 2015

We spent nine days at the Casa Tartaruga . We were looking for the peace and tranquility in an idyllic landscape . La Casa Tartaruga is really the perfect place for it. It is only accessible by boat. The crossing from Paraty only lasts 15 minutes and you can admire the islands of the bay. Those who claim that the Paraty region is visited in 3 or 4 days are mistaken. 9 are not enough. A big thank you to Yara , the manager of the villa, for helping us to clear the obstacle of language and for her advice.

“An amazing home in a beautiful and tranquil location”

Reviewed 25 Jan 2014

Casa Tartaruga is a beautiful property in a tranquil location. The property is truly well equipped to a high standard - both inside and out, catering for every need. Whilst accessible only by boat, kayaks are provided which enable guests to paddle to a nearby cove for drinks - and over to a nearby island where monkeys can be seen swinging from the trees. Those wishing to travel further afield to the mainland can make use of water taxis, which can be arranged through Yara, who is on hand in the resort to support guests with every requirement. The in resort service is second to none. In summary, a well equipped and beautiful home, in a beautiful and tranquil location, surrounded by stunning wildlife.

“A perfect way to relax, revive and dream”

Reviewed 4 Jun 2013

Quietly nestled on this beautiful peninsula, Casa Tartaruga offers a serene five star paradise, yet with a wonderful 'home from home' feel. From the moment we arrived, we fell in love with this very special place which gave us the chance to relax, revive and dream to our heart's content. The luxurious accommodation coupled with breath taking views were a treat for the soul, while basking and dining al fresco on the two decks was pure joy. A sincere thank you to the owners and staff for meticulously creating such magnificent and unique eco-friendly retreat - we would return in a heartbeat.

“Paradise on Earth”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2012

I have been lucky en onough to be to the "Turtle House" twice. At arrival, from distance one can see that the location could not be better. The stay at the property was wonderful. I had been gone there for the first time in march 2011, and with my return I was very please to note that the owners not only have concerned for details when they built the house, but also, the property has been very well kept. The pictures of the view from the balcony can show what I could not discribe with words, but one must surely experience the exuberant nature: monkeys, fish, turtle, birds, buterfly and a viriety of plants. I have been there twice, and am certainly going back!!! Ettore

“Paradise in Paraty”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2012

Staying at Casa Tartaruga has been one of the most wonderful experiences of my life. You get there by boat (there are no roads to the house) which is an amazing way to start the holiday. The house is so beautiful and set in a lovely maturing garden. There is every amenity, even television (but who would want to watch TV in this place). The views from the balcony are breathtaking. Sunrises that make you so glad to be alive. Sunsets to cry over. We swam every day in crystal clear water and watched life go up and down the bay. At night, the boat taxi can take you into Paraty to eat at wonderful bars and restaurants. The live Brazilian music played in many bars is hauntingly beautiful. I would recommend you cancel any plans or thoughts about going to Mauritius or Bora Bora or any other over developed tourist destination. This is really is the real thing.

“Great house on the water”

Reviewed 28 Mar 2011

3 couples stayed here over Carnaval 2011 and had a great time. The house is directly on the water and has a big deck and boat house with plenty of beach chairs and even 2 kayaks. There is a sandy beach about 50 meters from the pier. Yara the house manager met us at the marina in Paraty and sent us by boat to the house. You can not drive to the house so you need to leave your car at a secure car park in town. She gave us contact numbers of boat people. Her English is very good. The house itself was great with many ammenities including games and Dvds. While there is no air conditioning, there are ceiling fans in each bedroom. The decorations are very cute and make you feel like you are at the beach in Brazil. The kitchen has everything you need to cook etc. The beds were very comfortable as they were pillow top. I would definitely recommend this house to others.

“Amazing coastline!”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2010

Great location - this is an amazing place. The house is really fab, has great amenities and our little 3 year old had a fantastic time. With the big rooms and large deck it's ideal for entertaining, we had some super bbqs. The quality of all the furnishings, kitchen and bathrooms is very high, and very new. We were lucky to get the help of Yara, the local manager, who was really helpful and was full of useful information. We enjoyed swimming off the dock and playing games on the beach, where it's very safe and clean - and the neighbour's soft dog to play with. A highlight was whilst swimming one of the fishermen sold us some giant prawns straight off his boat! In town there is a lot to do, but this bit of the coast is so beautiful we couldn't wait to get back to chill out. The views from the main deck are great and with a caipirinha or cold beer in your hand, watching the sunset you're in heaven!
