Casa Cairucu takes its name from its spectacular location. A few steps from the calm, protected waters of Paraty Bay, the house is located inside the Environmental Protection Area (APA) of Cairuçu surrounded by pristine beaches, uninterrupted swathes of rainforest and traditional fishing communities. There are no roads or cars to disturb the views, just forest paths and passing fishing boats.
Kingfishers and herons enjoy the advantage from the tree shading the terrace, hummingbirds flit between flowers and right in front are shoals of colourful fish, turtles and sometimes dolphins.
The house – built 2010 - has a modern, clean touch and catches the best of the sea views. It is perfect for families or groups of friends, honeymooners looking for something special and unusual, water sport lovers, for those that want to explore or who just want to relax. Paraty is only 10 – 15 mins away, and in the other direction are the region’s most beautiful beaches.
There are 3 double (/twin) en suite rooms that face the sea (beds for ideally 6 - 8 people total), and a further single room on the other side of the house with a bathroom next door, all with sea breeze as standard.
A fully equipped kitchen, a small library of CDs, DVDs and books, a selection of board games, snorkelling equipment (for 2), 2 double kayaks and 2 fishing rods.
Your stay includes a meet and greet on arrival in Paraty (the guide will accompany you to the house to show you around), and food and drink shopping service so you pay only supermarket prices. Lacking in culinary inspiration? We send you a number of delicious Brazilian dishes you or the maid can prepare. Tell us which you like and we’ll add the ingredients to your shopping list.
Energy in the house is provided by 4 solar panels, with a diesel generator and battery bank in a separate building to the main house, and water is heated by solar panels. A spring up the hill and filter provides drinking water.
For those that need to be connected, mobile phones do get a signal at the house, and there is wireless internet (though slow) via a 3G modem and router.
Children are welcome and it’s a wonderful environment for fun and exploration. Be aware that there is not a big garden or large flat area apart from the house’s veranda and deck (with gate). The closest sandy beach is a 5 minute walk away (or paddle) and it is very calm and protected (no waves).
Full equipped kitchen, a small library of CDs, DVDs and books, board games, snorkelling equipment (for 2), 2 fishing rods, 2 double kayaks, hammocks.
