The villa is a beautiful oceanfront property in the village of Arraial d’Ajuda in Northeastern Brazil. The property is spread throughout an expansive yard filled with coconut trees, and is just a 10-minute walk away from the beach. It is without a doubt one of the best houses in Arraial d’Ajuda.

Accommodation on the property is split between a main house and four separate bungalows. The main house is lined with large windows and glass doors, which let in sunlight and make for a very bright and cheerful atmosphere. There is a spacious living room with comfortable couches, a reading area and a TV area with an iPod dock, which opens onto a patio with further outdoor seating and lounge spaces. There is also an open-plan kitchen with a large breakfast table and a dining room that opens onto an outdoor patio, which has an additional dining area and views of the pool and bungalows.

Beyond the main house are the four bungalows. Each bungalow has an air-conditioned bedroom with a comfortable double bed and mosquito netting, an ensuite bathroom, as well as a small living area with a dining table and minibar.

Outside is where you will find the swimming area, which is surrounded by large coconut trees and has a pool deck and a covered poolside hut with a table, perfect for taking a break from the sun during lunchtime. There is another shaded outdoor dining area, and there is even a massage area by the ocean.

The villa is equipped with all the space and amenities one would need, and Arraial d’Ajuda has something for everyone. The house is suitable for groups of friends and families with children of all ages. It is also a great property for hosting events.

Arraial d’Ajuda is welcoming to people of all ages. Whether you want to experience complete peace while relaxing under the shade of coconut palms listening to the sound of lapping waves on a deserted beach, or experience a vibrant nightlife scene while dancing to Axé and Reggae music in lively beach bars until sunrise, Arraial d’Ajuda is where you want to be.

Beyond the beautiful beaches and exciting nightlife, you will find a variety of activities in the area including windsurfing, kitesurfing, diving, parasailing, fishing, boat trips, beach buggy rentals and golf at the nearby Terravista Golf Course and Condominium.

House manager/concierge, and two live-in caseiros who cook, clean, and do laundry, and are also in charge of the maintenance of the property. The staff are all family members and sleep on the property. They work daily from 6:30am – 7pm and there is night security at the condominium next door. We recommend to hire extra help for more than 4 guests.

Additional professional cooks, maids, babysitters, barmen, masseuses and personal trainers may be provided for an extra cost and paid for locally when requested in advance.

Private transfers with trusted drivers can be arranged from the Porto Seguro and Trancoso airports. Alternatively, the property comes with its own helipad, and helicopter and small aircraft charters can also be arranged upon request.

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.

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