“Beautiful views and stunningly diverse wildlife in tasteful and serene private villa”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My girlfriend and I had the privilege of having Casa Cairucu all to ourselves but there was plenty of room for three couples or more. The house is well equipped with a bbq, books, snorkelling and kayaking gear, stand up paddle boards etc. The house comes with a maid who cooks delicious local cuisine and keeps the very tastefully decorated house immaculate. Harry, a local guide and friend of the owners, is also on hand to provide any information you may need.

We spent most of our time reading in the hammocks or kayaking around the local area. We were luck enough to spot dolphins, golden tamarin monkeys, capuchins and many other interesting animals. I particularly recommend a walk or kayak to one of the local beaches (40 mins) Praia Vermelha which is pretty much deserted in the mornings and you really feel like you are on a desert island.

“Wonderful Place to disconnect from the world”
Reviewed 16 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Dear Simon, Fabiola:

We left Casa Cairucu yesterday after spending 11 wonderful days there. We really enjoyed the house and all the surrounding activities. Praia Vermelha was one of the best; seeing monkeys, sting rays, turtles, large iguanas, many fish and birds was definitly another highlight.
Adriana was of great help as well as all the info you guys put in the memo you sent us.
My wife and Kids love the place and we were all able to disconnect from the world for a few days and really spend some quality time together.

Congrats for your wonderful house in Ponta Grossa. We will recommend it to our friends in Chile.
We hope to come back ourselves in the future.
All the best from the Varela family.
Raimundo, Carolina, Fernanda, Sofia, Camila and Pedro

“Incredible location for a fantastic villa”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Casa Cairucu is about 20 mins by boat from Paraty. On our trip over we were passed by two schools of dolphins swimming in the opposite direction - an amazing experience.

The villa is a wonderful place to relax and being able to swim from your pier is fantastic. There is a great restaurant/bar literally a 50m swim away, but you can walk if you are not feeling up to the swim. Despite being so close, you will not be disturbed by any noise from this restaurant. Do note, any bars/restaurants are only open for lunch so you will rely on the food you take over for Adriana to prepare for evening meals and any snacks. Also remember to take whatever booze you want over, as there are no shops.

Praia Vermelha is a 40 min walk away, but well worth it if you go in the morning. You will literally have a stunning beach all to yourself until midday where boats of day-trippers will spoil the serenity. Have lunch at one of the fantastic restaurants at the end of the beach, some caipirinhas, and then head back unless you enjoy beach mayhem!

The villa is a great place to escape for a break in paradise.

“Stunning Place for a Family 'Chill-Out'”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Loved this place - you can't help but kick of your shoes, mix a caipirinha and take a good book to one of the hammocks, or else walk to the beach or maybe go into the delicious old town of Paraty. We were a family group of 6 aged from 17 to 56 and all had a great time.

Adriana came every day and smilingly provided breakfast, Harry was always on hand for practical help. Highly recommended.

What a fantastic time we had! The weather was great, the sea warm and the beaches calm. Also we could braai every night!
We also managed to pick up from fresh prawns from the local fisherman to end off our last night.
Our kids had such a great time that my son told me this afternoon when we got home thank you for a great week away
