Casa Cairucu

Paraty | Brazil

An utterly idyllic spot in Paraty for an intimate honeymoon or an adventurous family holiday like no other, kayaking to secret beaches, snorkelling with fish and turtles and exploring the tropical rainforest meets the sea. This is no ordinary house rental.

Private beach house Casa Cairuçu takes its name from its spectacular location. Overlooking the calm, protected waters of Paraty Bay, the villa sits inside the Cairuçu Environmental Protection Area, surrounded by pristine beaches, swathes of rainforest and traditional fishing communities. No roads or cars disturb the breathtaking views; just passing fishing boats and from time to time turtles and dolphins. Guests can only get here by boat – a 20 minute ride from charming colonial Paraty – so the adventure begins when you are collected from the town pier by the boatman. Luis will whisk you across the aquamarine water to the house where your guide introduces guests to his wife, lovely housekeeper Adriana, they’ll be on-call to help you get the best experience of the spectacular Green Coast.

Local restaurants available for lunch (only) and there are no local shops. Adriana may be able to arrange for passing fishermen to sell guests just-caught snapper, prawns or mahi-mahi to BBQ for dinner.

There is a fully equipped kitchen for self catering. 1 SUP and double kayak to borrow, with lifejackets.

You will have an English-speaking remote concierge and all the pre-arrival food and drink shopping service. Housekeeper Adriana prepares simple tasty Brazilian lunches and dinners for no extra cost; you just pay for the groceries. Daily housekeeping included and wonderful boat rides with Luis easily arranged at extra cost.
