Interaction with Guests
I live upstairs in the house so we will meet. I run an adventure travel company in Paraty so can give advice on the best things to do and see and places to go.
The house is in a quiet residential area, 30 minutes on foot to the old town centre (5-10 minutes by car or bike), and near the supermarket (10 minutes on foot)
Excellent location for public transport. The buses to all the best beaches stop at the end of the road (5 minutes walk)
Other Things to Note
I have 02 very friendly dogs!
Fantastic! Michael wasn't home but his friends Adam and Rubia were wonderful and made us feel right at home. The house is great (exactly as described) and Paraty is well worth a visit; a beautiful historic town. We were also taken kayaking by Adam (Michael has a business that does this and other things) and given advice on lots of of other things to do and see in Paraty and across the rest of Brazil. We were also treated to a fantastic BBQ which was probably the most multinational event I have ever been to as well as great fun. The dogs are also great although be prepared to provide constant TLC to them both! Thanks for a wonderful couple of days.
Nossa hospedagem na casa do Michael foi ótima, com muita receptividade e conforto.
Tudo nos deixou a vontade, os cachorros com todo carinho, a Ditinha com seu sorriso e atenção.
O Bairro é calmo e seguro.
Enfim, indicamos para todos que quiserem viajar e se sentir num clima como se estivesse na sua própria casa.
Paraty is a wonderful little village with spectacular surroundings and Michael's place was perfect to explore all that. The house is beautifully designed, there is a little patio with a little pool where you can sit and relax a little while when you feel like it. The location of the house is also quite good, in a quiet area 5 minutes drive or 20 minutes walk from the old city centre in a very nice and safe part of the town. The room we had was very basic but quite large. The only thing that bothered me was that the room did not have a wardrobe or anywhere to put your things in but Michael told me that he had already called a carpenter to take care of that, so in future I think it will be just perfect there with the most welcoming host.
We stayed 4 nights at Michaels house and felt safe. His 2 dogs are really funny and Michael had some good recommendations what to do in Paraty. There are several good options to do excursions from here: Old Paraty, Beaches, Waterfalls.
We had an amazing time in Paraty thanks to our airbnb experience. First of all, Michael seems to be the perfect host, who can help you with any kind of hints and tips for your stay and even picked us up when we arrived. As we were pretty lazy during our stay, we enjoyed hanging around the beautiful house with the lovely pool. Everything just perfect from A to Z! Thx a lot!
Voilà un super endroit : un quartier calme, une superbe maison, une terrasse au bord de la piscine. Merci à Michael pour son chaleureux accueil et ses conseils.
Michael's house in an excellent option for staying in Paraty no matter the type of traveller you are. From a family trip to an adventure expedition, alone or in a group, Michael's place will join both a pleasant environment and a practical and ideal location. Michael himself is an excellent host, the rooms are very very clean and confortable as the hole house. Probably the best place to stay in Paraty.

About the Host, Michael
Originally from Northern Ireland I lived in a few different places around the world before settling in Paraty where I've been living for over 10 years now. I run an Adventure Travel Company here, Paraty Explorer, and have been all over the surrounding area...on foot, by kayak and Stand Up Paddle board. I can give you the very best tips for Paraty, from bars and restaurants to secluded sandy beaches and waterfalls and pools in the Rainforest. Come and see for yourself why I decided to live in Paraty!
