A splendid ocean-front house, the villa is located on one of the 65 enchanting islands of Paraty, Ilha do Araújo, and has been featured in leading architectural magazines for its style and charm. The house has a secluded feel yet is only 15 minutes away from Paraty, a heritage site where nature and culture meet in ocean surroundings.

Spread across two houses, the property is right on the edge of the ocean, enjoying wonderful breezes and providing spectacular views. The house has art from all over the world and unique décor incorporating lots of stone, wood, and blue doors and windows. There are four cozy bedrooms with incredible ocean views split between the main house and a connecting smaller house that has two of the bedrooms and a large terrace. The main house has a living room, kitchen, small office and a great spacious outdoor terrace with covered dining, lounging and BBQ areas. The property also comes with a six-person boat and a personal boatman, although it’s hard for guests to drag themselves away from the house and the semi-private beach.

For those guests looking for some adventure, there are additional boat rides available to nearby islands, most of which have safe swimming areas, scuba diving sites, trekking opportunities, as well as delightful bars and restaurants.

The villa is ideal for groups of friends and families with children of all ages wanting to enjoy the island life and take in some of the most beautiful views in Paraty.



Accommodation is spread across two houses, 20 meters between each of them, right by the edge of the ocean

Area description

Paraty is a lovely 17th century town that has been perfectly preserved thanks to a long period of isolation, and was declared a National Historical Monument in 1966. There are winding narrow cobblestone roads with small fishermen’s cottages and vast merchants mansions standing side by side, all white stucco with brightly painted shutters and doors. Vehicles are banned from the town, and the charming art galleries, shops, restaurants and bars tucked amongst the cobbled streets are best explored on foot. Paraty is equidistant between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, both of which can be reached in 3.5-4 hours by car.

A welcome hamper of drinks and snacks is included in the cost of the rental. To make your arrival at the property as relaxing as possible, we suggest we stock the kitchen and fridges with a customized grocery shop prior to your trip. This means that you will arrive to a kitchen full of food, a fridge full of cold drinks and that the first meal can be served shortly after your arrival.
