If you could picture the ultimate, modern house surrounded by untouched, tropical jungle and a hop, skip and a jump away from the ocean….this villa would be it. A few meters from Itamambuca Beach on the southeastern coast of the State of São Paulo, it is located between São Paulo and Rio, and the closest towns are Ubatuba and Paraty. Itamambuca Beach is considered part of Ubatuba, and Paraty is about an hour away (boats can be rented for day trips to Paraty and the surrounding islands).

The three-bedroom, totally private villa is built entirely from wood, sustainable materials and glass, blending in with its surroundings while adding a glimmer of luxury.

With a fully open-plan structure, the ground floor has a living room, dining area and kitchen that all flow together, following the general openness of the house. The dining area is spread across an indoor deck with a large wall of glass windows running across the entire side of the house, connecting the inside with the jungle outside. The living room and kitchen are separated only by the kitchen island, and there are hammocks strung across the living room to add to the sense of peace and calm. The first floor also has a double bedroom and bathroom, and on the second floor you will find two additional bedrooms sharing one bathroom. The whole second floor is surrounded by the same indoor deck and glass windows as below.

The villa works equally well for groups of friends and families with children of all ages. It is perfect for a group of two couples with children wanting a unique, relaxing beach getaway, while also being close to nature.

Area description

Paraty is a lovely 17th century town, equidistant between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, 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. Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo can be reached in 3.5-4 hours by car.

Ubatuba is a small area east of São Paulo and west of Rio de Janeiro on the southeast coast of the State of São Paulo. Covered by Atlantic rainforest and containing more than 80 beaches along the coast line (some completely deserted), Ubatuba is considered to be "The Surf Capital of São Paulo State". Besides being one of the best places in Brazil for surfing, it has recently become known for its birdwatching (there are more than 565 different birds species identified in the area). Other activities in Ubatuba include trekking, hiking and scuba diving, but there are limited restaurants, bars and nightlife.

Car hire is recommended, but not essential. Cars be can be rented locally in Paraty and we are happy to help with these arrangements.

Best Bits

  • The house is completely submerged in nature, providing an incredibly unique experience
  • The secluded location is perfect for complete privacy, yet only 10 meters away from the beach
  • The large floor-to-ceiling windows make you feel like you are one with the surrounding tropical jungle

Bear in Mind

  • As the house is part of an ecological reserve, there are limited restaurants, bars and nightlife in close proximity. The house is best for those wanting to relax and enjoy nature and the beach
