WE HAVE A CAT
We wanted to warn anyone suffering from allergies. He is an adorable, friendly and clean cat, and loads of guests have fallen in love with him! But we should add that he is also cheeky and likes to make new friends, so guests are advised to keep their door shut if they would rather our friendly, playful, and very outgoing cat stayed in the communal areas of the flat!
ABOUT THE HOSTS
We are not a couple, just good friends who run this place together. Therefore please do not be surprised if it is just one of us hosting you. We might both be there, but often one or the other of us is away.
In general, if you have any wishes regarding your stay we, will do our best to make it special for you!

Interaction with Guests
There will always be time for some useful information about things to do, getting around, which tour operators are good, etc.
As for more social interaction, it depends. Talluana works, but will usually be around in the morning time, and often brekafasts with the guests. Im general it will depend on how busy she is and also, of course, how much you, the guests, want to interact. Often, if time and work allow it, going out for meal or a drink or interacting in general is fun, but of course it is never a problem if guests prefer to explore the town on their own, or like their privacy in general. We are pretty flexible.
The main rule is that you enjoy your stay with us - and let us know what you need!
Other than that, we're pretty flexible about most things - when it comes to the kitchen guests are welcome to help themselves to breakfast (or we will be delighted to make it for you - and we make GOOD breakfasts!) - although we would ask guests to buy their own ingredients for other meals
Talluana welcomed us into her home and was very friendly with us. The room itself is small but has a ventilator for the heat. The room was clean and the bed was perfect.
Talluana was a very friendly host, but as we had a busy schedule we didn't have a lot of time to talk. She was very accomodating however, so no complaints there.
The location itself is 1 block outside the Historic Center, so we had some problems finding it. It was certainly confusing that the name of the B & B is Historic Center and that it looks a building from the historic center.
Overal we had a good experience, the only thing we didn't really like was that she had a friend over in the evening and they talked really loudly rather late until the night. It would have been at least nice if they had wispered a bit when it was midnight.
Other than that she made us a delicious breakfast and she seems like a really nice person. She told us that we were her last guests as she was going to move to a new place, so we want to wish her all the best at her new spot !
Tudo conforme combinado!
Talluana é muito receptiva!!!
A localização é perfeita, perto de restaurantes, farmácias e etc...
Mas quem não tem muita afinidade com gatos, melhor repensar sobre o local!
Apesar deles serem bem tranquilos e doceis!!!
Voltaria para lá sem problema algum!!!!
Talluana was a great host, with a perfect location for walking around Paraty. She had a breakfast with coffee ready every morning, and was very helpful in helping us find things to do around Paraty, including booking a jeep tour for me. I highly recommend staying with her.
I had a wonderful time with Talluana. The perfect accompaniment to a relaxed stay in equally relaxed Paraty, and would perhaps best suit the budget traveler as it's excellent value for money. You'll get a local's welcome and some choice suggestions staying here over a more impersonal 'Pousada'. Delicious fresh fruit and a great location, plus a hammock just outside your room to mull beach options for day trips. Will be returning.
We had a very nice stay at Paraty. The house is located perfectly with the historical center and various restaurants around the corner. Talluana was helpful and did her very best to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The house is old and the bathroom is a bit outdated but Talluana reacted immediately on small problems we had. The room itself is very cosy and the veranda with hammock was very nice.
Talluana, thank you for our nice stay!
Talluana's house is ideally situated to explore Paraty. It is on a quiet street, and has a lovely balcony with a hammock. I stayed one night only and met Talluana briefly. She was very welcoming and helpful and had lots of materials to help explore the town. She prepared a lovely breakfast for the following morning, even though I was leaving very early. I would have been very happy to stay longer.

About the Host, Talluana
We are friends who came to travelling to Brazil and ended up running a Bed and Breakfast together! It´s in Paraty, right in the historic centre of this wonderful town. We are not a couple, and if you come and stay it might be just one of us hosting you as we both like to travel and sometimes need to for work. But both of us can help you with information about the town and things to do, and we both enjoy hosting!
We have been on Airbnb for a while now and have both been guests and hosts, and really like the whole system, site, and opportunities for great places to stay (and people to meet) that it gives,
Piers is from England, and Talluana is from Brazil.
