Renata and Colin have a created a wonderful and relaxing home in the heart of the jungle, where you can escape from everyday life, slow down and simply enjoy the sounds and the sights of the jungle.
Renata & Colin were very welcoming when we arrived and took extra time to explain things to us and give us recommendations on where to eat. The place itself is as described: very clean, very modern bathroom and amenities, all in a peaceful setting. Breakfast is a highlight with fresh homemade breads, juices, fruits, etc. and a beautiful view of the front yard. Within a five minute walk there is a great river and waterfall that you can bathe in.
Despite torrential rain, we had a lovely couple of days staying at Sitio Nameste. The location is truly beautiful; set amongst lush forest and mountains. To reach the accommodation, you need to take a bus for about 20 minutes up some windy, bumpy roads, however for us it all added to the adventure. The apartment itself was immaculately clean, modern and well cared for. On our arrival, Renata and Colin gave us a warm welcome and we loved a few treats in the room - fresh, filtered water with mint, citronella incense and nice toiletries. Breakfast was also lovely - including fresh pao de queijo one morning and amazing bread the next - surrounded by colourful birds. The nearby waterfall was spectacular, we only wished it had been warm enough to swim!
Wonderful and highly recommended.
simply fantastic. sitio namastê is so nice that you will think twice before leaving it to explore paraty. lots and lots of green, all of it carefully treated, leading to a fantastic river, which allows relaxing, swimming and even enjoying a mini-waterfall. renata and collin are very welcoming and provide excellent breakfast in the morning. the room and bathroom are very clean and comfortable. air conditioning, fan and mini-fridge for the hot days and extra blankets for the cold nights. they cleaned the room and tidied up the beds daily. 20 mins by car from downtown paraty, great for relaxing but perfectly feasible if you want to explore the city. not much more to say, definitely recommended!
Hy Renata and Colin! We had a fantastic experience in Parati with Renata and Colin.! First of all the suite is excellent! Very organized and has everything in place. Besides, of course, the beautiful location, surrounded with an astonishing nature with a river that crosses the property.
In addition Renata and Colin were outstanding hostesses, always very solicitous with our needs and comfort. And the breakfast served, prepared by Colin, is excellent. In summary, we more than recommend.
My family and I spent three days is this fantastic place. Renata and Colin are excellent hosts, nice and attentive to all our needs. The triple room has all the amenities for a pleasant stay, a spacious bathroom, air conditioning and a refrigerator available to be used. All very clean an cozy. The breakfast with fresh fruits and one morning the surprise of homemade bread baked by Colin. The place is a piece of paradise with natural waterfalls and Atlantic forest preserved,with the security needed for a family with a toddler.
Colin and Renata were incredibly welcoming and hospitable. They were there to great me right when I arrived and showed me to the lovely cottage. The room is exactly as pictured and very comfortable. You can get some provisions in town and keep it in the mini fridge.
The grounds are spectacular, absolutely breath taking. The rainforest is magical and I spent hours just lounging in the river and waterfall. There's all sorts of wildlife around so keep your eyes and ears open. My favourite part of the day was waking up to chirps and rushing water, lying there soaking it in for another hour before finally making it to breakfast. Speaking of which, breakfast was incredible as well topped off with Colin's signature bread. Just sitting there having nice conversation while gazing at the birds (and other animals, like I said, keep your eyes open) was so relaxing.
It's easy to get in and out of town from here, the bus stop is just down the road. Returning at night allows you to see the beautiful stars and maze of fire flies. Just look out for random horses, haha.
I really can't say enough, this experience was exactly what I was looking for and Colin & Renata went out of their way to make sure I had a peaceful time. Thank you so much!

About the Host, Renata & Colin
We are a Brazilian-Scottish couple. After living in Europe for 12 years, Renata returned to her home country and "imported" her husband. We wanted a peaceful place in the nature, and fell in love with Sitio Namaste as soon as we saw it. Renata is a photographer, Colin is a multi task man - responsible for doing up and finishing the accommodations - and his main passion is wood work.
We really enjoy hosting and getting to know people from all over the world, and sharing our piece of paradise.
