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 was nice and friendly host. She was always open to help you or give you tips what to do. Room was nice and clean. In addition it is at good location just a few metres from bus terminal and near to old downtown. Find the accomodation was a little bit confusing because of old address her flat on airbnb, so make sure that you will have actual address. We had a great time there. I recommend to stay there.
Talluana is a great host in a beautiful house in the wonderful town of Paraty. We had such a nice time staying with her. She met us from our bus, gave tips on the area and was good fun to be around. She has two cats who we loved playing with and her place is spacious and clean and right in the centre of town - ideal for exploring and a minute from the bus terminal
A casa de Talluana fica excelentemente bem localizada, entre a rodoviária (poucos minutos) e o Centro Histórico. Ela é muito atenciosa e experiente com este serviço de locação, deixa os hóspedes muito à vontade, com confiança. O café da manhã é excelente. O quarto é pequeno, mas justo e a cama é muito confortável. No quarto superior há uma sacada com bela vista. Há dois gatos que costumam brincar com os hóspedes. A internet funcionou bem. Senti falta de uma mesinha no quarto, apenas. Mas recomendo fortemente.
Fomos recebidos muito bem! A casa é muito aconchegante. Tem cozinha equipada, e banheiros muito limpos! Ela fica muito perto do centro histórico, e ao lado da rodoviária e do supermercado Carlão, o maior da região. A Talluana foi muito receptiva e atenciosa! Nos deu várias dicas de coisas para fazer, além de preparar um delicioso café pela manhã!
A Talluna e o Tadeu são super atenciosos e divertidos.
A casinha é linda, totalmente fiel as fotos, limpa e organizada.
Nos sentimos super à vontade e felizes com a escolha.
Os gatinhos são lindos e fofos. E o café da manhã é de primeira! ;)
Queremos voltar em breve!
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!!!!

About the Host, Talluana
I am a person that likes to travel and meeting new people!
Still figuring out how to navigate the day to day but enjoying (most of) the confusion. I work in a SPA offering holistic therapies and teaching yoga classes.
I have a passion for cats (specially 2). I love spending time in my house cooking, drinking wine and listening to good music. I have great, colorful, international and hilarious friends that sometimes come over to share a meal, coffee or just to chat, you will propably meet one of them during your stay.
If you decide to stay with me you will find that I am generous, helpful and accommodating.
I am always ready to help you with information about the town and things to do, I do enjoy hosting!
I have been on Airbnb for a while now and have both been guest and host, and really like the whole system, site, and opportunities for great places to stay (and people to meet) that it gives.
Thanks for checking out my profile!
