(email hidden) drive on a breathtaking scenic route, you’ll find this little piece of paradise. Nested on a hillside with a fabulous view to the ocean, surrounded by luxurious rain forest, the house is built in two different levels. The lower level contains a large bedroom with private bath overlooking the ocean, spacious veranda, outdoor living room and a mini-fridge. The upper level offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, dining room, living room with TV, well equipped cozy kitchen with microwave, pantry which houses a refrigerator and a freezer, with a lot of food storage room. Two of the bedrooms have French doors that open onto a L-shaped veranda with a wonderful view to the rain forest and the ocean. Available to our guests are two portable barbecue apparatus, one traditional and one Genghis Khan type.
An easy walk downhill will take you to 2 fantastic beaches, the Praia Brava, small with white soft sand and a gentle surf, and the Praia da Fortaleza, with calm waters, and a nice infrastructure for food and drinks. (The walk back is quite rough though, so you may consider driving). There are magnificent walks in the woods nearby, leading to other beautiful beaches, almost deserted
We had a great time at this house near Ubatuba. The view is very beautiful, a wonderful place to wake up in the morning. The deck around the house is great. The house is quite far off the main road, which is good if you are looking for some quiet time. It is about a half hour drive to Ubatuba. There are grocery stores about 15 minute drive away. There is a small calm beach and a larger beach with some restaurants and bars very close by in this neighborhood, also a small surfing beach closest to the house. You can walk to these beaches though it is quite a ways down the hill. The beds were a little musty smelling and there are plenty of mosquitoes. Mosquito nets for the beds would have been helpful. The main issue with the house is the very steep driveway leading up to the house. We were scared every time we had to drive back. Luckily for us it was a sunny week. We would have left the house if it had been a rainy week. You would probably need a car to stay here, and be a confident driver. There is not much room for a large car to turn around at the top of the driveway, but you would want to use a car with a decent amount of power to get up the driveway.
A casa do Manoel é incrível, exatamente como nas fotos. Tem uma vista linda, decoração linda e a praia ali pertinho é limpinha e bem tranquila (e olha que eu fui no carnaval!).
Como a casa fica no alto, tem uma boa subida para voltar - mas dá para ir a pé se você estiver empolgado. E vale pela vista. :)
Manoel's house is amazing, just like in the pictures. Great view, great decor and the beach nearby is clean and not so crowded (even considering we've been there during carnival!).
Since the house is in the top of the hill, you'll have to make some effort to get back, but the view is worth it.
Ficar hospedado na casa de Vivi e Manoel foi uma experiência e tanto. Anfitriões cuidadosos e solícitos, uma casa aconchegante e uma paisagem deslumbrante (de dia e de noite).
Localização perfeita para quem procura paz, tranquilidade e contato com a natureza, casa muito confortável, vista maravilhosa! Ótimo atendimento do anfitrião.
Very nice house. Everything was as described. We stayed there in 9 people and it was very comfortable.
Manoel answer emails very quickly, also he provides a very good guide showing how to arrive there.
I very recommend him.
A casa é muito boa. A casa é tudo o que está descrito. Ficamos em 9 pessoas e foi trranquilo. O Manoel sempre respondeu os emails muito rapidos e foi bem atencioso. Ele até fornece um guia de como chegar na casa e como é os arredores.
Recomendo ele, super honesto.
We had a great stay at Manoel's place in Ubatuba. The view is absolutely incredible, and the house is close to several nice beaches. The drive up to the house is a bit difficult (it's about 20 minutes off the main road) but worth it. The house sleeps 8 comfortably; the furnishings are sufficient (but definitely nothing fancy). Overall I would highly recommend.
The house is amazing and perfect for 8 people! The place looks just like the photos. Manoel is very responsive and replies emails and inquiries quickly. The view from the balcony is stunning and the beaches are just 5 minutes away from the house; however you will need a car to get around. I recommend this amazing property 100%.
O Manuel foi ótimo! Responde rapidamente os e-mails, tira todas as dúvidas e é super atencioso. O Zezinho, caseiro da casa também é muito simpático e responsável.
A casa é perfeita para 8 pessoas e tem tudo que você precisa para passar um fim de semana ou uma temporada.
As duas praias perto da casa são lindas! Praia Brava (5 min de carro) para quem gosta de surfar e gosta de praias mais desertas e a Praia da Fortaleza (menos de 10 min de carro) que é uma praia com o mar mais calmo e com restaurantes, mas se quiser comer em casa a cozinha é bem equipada.
Por ser no alto do morro é preciso ter carro para fazer tudo, mas a vista da varanda é tão incrível que compensa a necessidade do carro.
