“pousada in nature”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

A very nice pousada in the middle of a nature reserve, with a river flowing through near the rooms. Rooms equipped with mosquito nets as well as hammock on the balcony! Owner does everything to make the stay pleasant: she took us around to show us the nice beaches, helped us get a "water taxi" to a secluded beach, let us get the room early since our flight arrived early, helped us rent a car for the next day, and even served us an (extra) breakfast when we arrived!

The place is incredible, pure mata atlantica: birds wake you up in the morning, you can spot toucans in the trees from your bed. Gerta is very welcoming, friendly, and will share stories, meals and board game evenings with you.

Beside the Floripa crowds and flanking the National Parc Lagoa do Peri, the pousada sitio dos tucanos offers a perfect option to stay some relaxed days on Santa Catarinas famous Island. Located in the south, about two KM beyond the Village of Pantanao do Sul, you’ll find a huge green hillside property. Very basic, but clean and cozy guestrooms are available in the main house as well in a ‘longhouse’ as known from Borneo. Longhouse-rooms have balcony without any spectacular visibility, therefore with a burbling creek outside and surrounded from the atlantic rainforest. Good breakfast, friendly hosts, a naturally pool and spectacular scenic flight performed from the two domestic Macaws every morning. Recommended!

Deep in to the hillside, surrounded by lush Atlantic Rainforest, is the rustic guest house owned by German expatriate- Gerta. Simple accommodation in original rustic cottages situated next to a river- which enhances the serenity of this environment. Rooms are basic but clean. There are no modern facilities like TV, internet etc. This pousada is about being with nature. It is simply wonderful if you want to be remote- physically and spiritually.
A naturally dammed rock swimming pool with lovely grass area to relax on. Beautiful views of valley below and beach (which is about 3km away). There are bicycles for guests use, but a vehicle is really required if you want to go anywhere urban. The warmth of your host Gerta and her team- including two toucans- make this an ideal retreat for those wanting to escape the trappings of modern day life. There is a restaurant on site with homey, healthy meals. This guesthouse’s extensive grounds and natural environment make it a perfect place for a secluded yoga or meditation retreat!

My partner and I stayed here while visiting friends near Florianopolis. After seeing what the scene was like in Florianopolis, we sought out a small guesthouse off the beaten path. Luckily we found this pousada, for it was perfect for us. About 30 acres embrace the main house and lodge, and the auxiliary rooms. The pousada has the cleanest, tastiest water I've had anywhere in Brasil.

The owner, Gerta May, was attentive to all our needs, and we found this to be a really relaxing place to stay, and especially loved the nature trail that goes up the mountain and around the property, with a small creek running through it. Lots of birds! We were fortunate to see toucans while there.

The check is experienced in world cuisine (he's from Germany), and also makes Auyurvedic meals. As a vegetarian, I was very pleased with his delicious offerings. We ate both breakfast and dinners at the lodge. Outstanding food!

While planning a visit to the beautiful island of Santa Catarina, I was having difficulty in finding accommodation far from the restless crowds - until I found the Pousada Sitio Dos Tucanos. This gem of a guest house is located at the end of a dirt road, high on verdant hill overlooking the fishing village of Pantano do Sul, near the southern tip of the island.

If you savour peace and quiet, and rustic and charming accommodations appeal to you, then I highly recommend this pousada. The property is surrounded by lush forest, and the main guest house is situated next to a percolating stream. The view over the village and out to the ocean is stunning.

The innkeeper, Gerta May, is warm and charming and has many excellent recommendations. Much of the island is over developed, but Gerta May knows where the most beautiful beaches and colonial towns are located. Our stay at this pousada was the highlight of our visit to the south of Brazil. It was refreshing, relaxing and most enjoyable.
