A previous review for the cottage was titled 'Great location and accommodation in the rainforest margins but Paraty and surperb beaches in easy beaches' and the title summed it up really well.
We (2 Adults and 2 children) stayed for 5 nights and our stay was superb. One of the reasons we had gone to Brazil was to look at birds and other wildlife. The garden and the forest surrounding the cottage was one of the best places we visited in Brazil for bird species and numbers.
The cottage was clean and well laid out. The beds were comfortable and firm. There is a gas cooker and a large fridge. There is also a log burner that you can use should the nights get a little cool in the winter.The children couldn't believe their luck as there is a television. Around the cottage is a large garden and trails into the rainforest which lead down to a fast flowing river. It is full of birds and butterflies. You even have your own bird table in front of the cottage that you can put fruit (bananas seemed to work best) on to attract tanagers and marmosets.
At night there are fire flies and you have the sound of frogs and crickets to send you to sleep.
The hosts Renata and Colin are really friendly and helped us to book up some activities around Paraty. The horse riding with Raul (Raul Horses4u) was good as was the boat trip from Paraty (Marcell). Both Raul and Marcell can speak some English. We can particularly recommend the boat trip from Paraty where we went snorkelling and saw turtles in the bay. We can fully recommend this holiday rental if you want a good self catering cottage that is close to the forest and nature but is also close to Paraty and all its attractions. There is a good supermarket on the edge of Paraty where you can buy all your supplies for your stay .

“Great location and accommodation in the rainforest margins, but Paraty and superb beaches in easy reach.”
Reviewed 17 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed one week at The Cottage with our 6 year old son, having come from a fairly hectic 5 days in Rio seeing all the sights there. The Cottage is surrounded by lush vegetation, enormous granite boulders, and there is a mountain river with plenty of dipping pools and small cascades. We spent a few half days just exploring the grounds, insect and bird spotting, and playing in the river. The accommodation is very clean and tastefully presented. The beds were comfortable, the only noises being the river/waterfalls, and birds. Paraty is a short drive (or you could even catch a bus nearby) where there is an excellent large supermarket on the outskirts and other tourist facilities as it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Many of the buildings are from the 17th century when Paraty was the principal Portuguese gold export port. We took a 5 hour boat trip with Paraty Tours and would recommend them. Some of the beaches we saw were idyllic - Trinidade is spectacular, but not recommended for swimming due to heavy seas and boulders. There are plenty of other sandy beaches safe for children to paddle.
Overall, The Cottage was perfect for us as we were able to cover both coast and forest from one location. A big 'Thank You' to the owners, Renata and Colin, for helping to make our trip a successful one.
