We liked that Renata + Colin's home is nestled in the mountains beside the river, the perfect place for a quiet retreat. It was also easy to take the bus into town, day and night. Colin's pao de queijo is absolutely delicious and Renata gave us a delightful tour of their 7 acre property. Thank you for a wonderful stay - we also appreciated the privacy of our separate house, renovated to a very high standard by Colin. Dan + Una
If you are looking for a private paradise for yourself, you must stay at sitio namaste! Within a few minutes walking distance from the house, through a clean and accessible path you will find a delicious waterfall only for you! We were able also to see lots of birds (specially the colibris) , and in the last day monkeys! It was definitely an unforgettable experience to stay at Renata and Colin 's get away. The room is very comfortable and clean, the bathroom is huge, small details like a flashlight (but take yours anyway if you are arriving in the night!) and candles are available in the room for you, and every morning you can enjoy a delicious breakfast with fruits , coffee, tea and home made delicious home made bread and pao de queijo! We enjoyed a lot our stay there, and totally recommend it!
To reach there by bus is also very easy and not so far away from paraty , so if you want to leave the paradise to go and enjoy a meal in the city is also possible. Renata and Colin will also help you with tips about bus schedules and others, and there are also some small bars and groceries not so far if you don't feel like taking the bus to the city. Prepare yourself to leave your cell phone in your suitcase (cause almost no signal there) and as they announce: just relax!
Ps: if you love pets you will love the dogs and cats from Namaste. They are just lovely and friendly !
We spent 3 days and 4 nights in Renata & Colin's Eden. Sitio Namaste is a huge and idyllic place, surrounded by luxuriant nature and crossed by a magnificent river with natural pools and waterfalls. It's the perfect place to stand back from urban frenzy and stay away from industrial tourism tracks. We'll always remember the delicious breakfasts (with Colin's handmade bread, a true luxury in Brasil) and above all the receptiveness and the kindness of our hosts. Thanks to them, we almost forgot the bad weather of the last 2 days. They were our sunbeam in the rain.
When I think of the best places we visited on our Brazil trip (1/half month) this is surely one of them!
Breakfasts at the terace, swiming in the river, hike to the Mata Atlantica (guided by local friend of Renata and Colin) and beutyfull Paraty near by + friendly hosts is a promising combination of wonderfull holiday.
We doubt if its not too far from the city but, soon we were so glad! Paraty is perfectly accessible by bus, which is good experience it self.
Hope to be back one day!

Such a special place on our month trip in South America. It really is your own little slice of paradise. Brace yourselves for a bumpy bus journey up the hills from Paraty, but once you get up there it is all worth it. Tranquil setting, set in manicured grounds, with a beautiful fresh waterfall to swim in and bath in at your disposal just a short walk away.
Each morning we were treated to a fantastic spread of fresh fruits, home made breads, and good coffee. Renata and Collin are happy to help and offer their local knowledge to help you explore the area and plan your day.
Our room was spacious and clean, provided with a super big fan to keep you cool.
I would definitely recommend to someone who is seeking chill out time and to someone who loves nature. Who needs the beach or a pool when you have your own waterfall. No one seems to know about it apart from the locals.
If you are going to explore Paraty do take into account it is a 25min bus journey into town.
The pictures are actually accurate. The room is clean, simple and spacious. The waterfall is amazing and it is all yours.
Breakfast is good - especially Colin's homemade bread. Since we didn't have a car, we would take the bus to have diner at Paraty. It's a beautiful 20 minutes ride and the bus stops close enough to the house.
Renata and Colin have another option for guests. The other option is a bit more distant from their house (if you want more privacy) and has a kitchen (if you want to cook). But we were a couple traveling, without a car, and this option was perfect for us.
Renata and Colin were great hosts.
Thank you guys! I hope to come again!
Feliz natal e boa virada de ano para vocês!
The place is wonderful, the hospitality of Colin reflects the tranquility and friendly environment. Unforgettable trip and my favorite place in Paraty.
We have spent 2 nights in this little piece of heaven in the middle of the nature. Situated far from the so tourist Paraty , we felt at home in this peaceful and restful place.
Renata and Colin are perfect and lovely hosts and their breakfasts are delicious (with a special mention from bruno for the donuts ...:-)
Ps : To swim in a natural swimming pool was a dream for sophia so thanks for this great moment too !!
Reading the other reviews there is little more I can do than praise Colin and Renatas' magnificent place nestled next to the hills in upper Parati. The River is truly magical, blessed with colourful butterflies and bird song.
Colins fresh baked Breads make the breakfast worth boasting about. The room is clean, fresh and large. Colin and Renata were helpful in every way possible and I highly recommend a stay at Namaste!
We stayed with Renata and Colin for 5 days. They could not have been more helpful and genuinely friendly. The room is very clean and modern and has everything you need, breakfasts are A1 and the location with the river at bottom of the garden is truly special. I recommend this place 100%.
