We enjoyed our stay in this lovely old house in central Paraty. The house is located on a very pretty, quiet street in the old town but only a couple of minutes from shops, restaurants and the boat jetty. The interior has character, with a lot of wooden features and discrete lighting, but also plenty of space and comfort. The owner, Luan Santos, writes perfect English and is very responsive to emails. He was very understanding when we accidentally took the front-door key with us on departure and had to post it back to him! The housekeeper Isaura was also very welcoming. Overall, a good-value alternative to a pousada, particularly for families who require more space and freedom.
This house is fantastic - it is just off the iconic Santa Rita church and so quiet and so lovely.
Inside the space has so many corners of rest - the front entry is huge, the living room is charming and the doors open to the terrace and the pool, the inside dining room has such a beautiful table and when you open the back concertina doors there is another table and view of the pool.
There is a downstairs toilet and basin and then upstairs to the spacious bedrooms with lovely morning light and the shower bathroom and toilet.
We are only a couple and so had so much space and enjoyment of peace here.
The kitchen has a water filter which is such a great asset. Everything is at hand, and eating outside is wonderful.
The owner, Luan, is so helpful and kind and communicative. Simply the best!
Our daily service by Isaura was a lovely touch and she was so happy and sang her way around her chores like Cinderella. She kindly cut up our mangoes so we could enjoy them for breakfast.
The fresh fruit basket was a generous gift and much appreciated.
My husband, John, loved the cool pool but considering it was winter- had a great time of it.
Access to the town was excellent. The restaurants and bars were so easy to get to and enjoy.
It was so lovely to live in a traditional house that has been modernised for us to enjoy.
We have travelled the world including Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Latin America and agree that Paraty and this house is one place we would go back to with love.
Everything was amazing! Perfect location! Beautiful house! Next to everything and Mrs. Isaura is a great person!
