Hello travelers!!! Our house is on a hilltop, in the middle of a National Park that helps to keep nature almost untouched. At night you will go to bed listening to nothing but the sea rumor and when you wake up you´ll realize why we call it a paradise: surrounded by the tropical rain-forest, with its a-bun-dant vegetation, you´ll have breakfast witnessing the great fauna and flora from the front deck and, over there, yes, the sea. Colored birds are one of the main attractions: courageous as they are, they will come near asking for fruit and, if you put some bananas (which you will be able to get directly from the tree on the garden!!), they will multiply and give you a good opportunity to take some cute photos. The nearest beach is down the hill, and you´ll get there within a two minute walk through the tropical vegetation. “Praia Vemelha” is one of the most beautiful beaches in Ubatuba: it is very well preserved, far from the tumultuous and popular beaches, and offers clean sand and transparent water. There you will be able to walk, have a swim on one side, or surf on the other. If you want to do some trekking, there´s a tiny wild beach called “Praia do Cedro” within a 30 minute walk... This is a calm beach, literally in the middle of the forest, and it has an amazing view to the mountains. Then, there are more than 100 different beaches, islands, trekking paths and waterfalls that you´ll be able to visit before continuing to Rio the Janeiro. Each has its own personality, but the common thing is that they all belong to the National Park, so they are all wonderful!
On the other hand, from our house you can get, within a 20 minute walk, to the center of Ubatuba. Ubatuba is a local tourism spot, still a secret location to foreigners.There you can find supermarkets, banks, many interesting restaurants with tipicall and international food, night clubs, souvenir shops, tourist services like boat rides, snorkling, diving, etc. There´s a little colonial centre and a big and charming fish market where you can buy really fresh sea products directly from the fishermen!!!
The house itself is pettit, very well designed and decorated. It consists of two main environments: the kitchen/living room, where you´ll have all the basic things you´ll need to prepare your meals, a big sofa, table for maximum three and a small (and delightful) fireplace. The bedroom/studio (WiFi, of course) has a desk facing a big window to the garden and a comfortable double real bed. Then it is the bathroom, with a big mirror... and the deck with table and chairs... This, on sunny days (and nights!) is a third relaxing place where you can enjoy your meals, readings, thoughts. The sofa in the living-room can be used as an additional bed. The area of the property is enormous, so you won´t see or listen to our neighbors, whose houses are mixed with the environment, just like ours. At the same time we have three houses here, so you won´t be isolated.
During your stay you´ll have the place cleaned for free (voluntary contributions to the lady who cleans are welcome!!!).
My boyfriend and I both work with research (Philosophy), and live here all year long. However, we travel a lot, that´s why you´ll have the house all to yourself! We will provide clean sheets and towels, and if you need you will be able to use the washing machine. We speak Portuguese, Spanish, English, Italian and a little German.
Well... I think that´s it. Welcome!!!!
Great long weekend in the middle of a natural paradise: amazing vegetation, simple and cute house of a beautiful couple. The position, as well, is really impressive: close to the best beaches of Ubatuba and with a spectacular view. Highly reccomended!
Natalia's house is a small slice of paradise - tucked away in the forest and in walking distance to the beach it's perfect for a relaxing getaway. Natalia's emails and recommendations on local attractions was very helpful. We had a lovely time and would highly recommend to anyone else looking for a tropical escape.
We had a wonderful time staying here!! Natalia was a wonderful host - very quick to respond and great to communicate with. The place had everything we needed and is a lovely place to relax after busy city life. We enjoyed the open plan kitchen, being in the jungle, the view and sitting outside enjoying the surroundings. A short walk from the bottom of the garden to the beach. We only wish we could have stayed longer (but it was great -we didn't think about work once in 3 days!) in paradise!!
A nossa experiência no "Natural Paradise..." foi excepcional em vários sentidos!
Foi a primeira experiência nossa como hóspedes - assim como foi a primeira experiência da Natalia como hostess!
1) Sobre a Natalia e o Guilherme: além de todo suporte esperado, com dicas e informações preciosas, o casal nos recebeu com total despojamento e de coração aberto, inclusive com tempo para partilhar conversas, refeições e novas ideias!
2) Sobre o local: nossa escolha recaiu no espaço da Natalia por oferecer total segurança, simplicidade e sossego! O merecido descanso num lugar como este recarrega plenamente as energias! Além disso, é preciso ressaltar as qualidades do local: a) casinha encravada na montanha, próxima ao mar (pode-se ouvir sempre o som de ondas fortes quebrando na praia Vermelha do Centro); b) instalações suficientemente propícias para uma estadia tranquila; c) convívio com pessoas 'do bem', com abertura de mente; d) proximidade da natureza, em meio a animais silvestres e muito próximo à praia (com caminho feito sempre a pé);
3) Sobre os acessos: excelente localização, com bons acessos.
4) Apenas uma ressalva: não ter mais tempo para prolongar o período...
É uma experiência a ser repetida!
Se você busca um lugar assim, não hesite em consultar nossos anfitriões!
Sucesso, Natalia e Guilherme!
Abraços do Edu e do Kiko
