About this listing
Whether surfing, seeing different places and learn the customs of the Island of Magic! Here is the peak, in full toach with natureza!
Whether surfing, sightseeing, or wanting to experience the customs of the people, this safe and private chalet is in the midst of all the natural beauty that Floripa, “Island of Magic”, has to offer. At night you can see shooting stars…and in the morning wake up to the sound of birds.
The home is conveniently located between two of the most popular beaches on the island, Praia Mole (5-minute drive, or 20-minute bicycle ride) and Praia Joaquina (3-minute drive, 15-minute walk). It’s also a short distance to Lagoa da Conceição, a neighborhood famous for its cafes and restaurants. The bus stop is only a 3-minute walk away.

I am a professional surfer, competed in the ASP World Tour for 15 years, and now working on my new project Marco Polo Extreme Surfing In exploring what is unknown around the world, in fact I'm shooting for a TV cable waves. At home I have a very nice family that supports me to travel just that I really miss my two children that I have a 2 years old and another 4 years.
I enjoy traveling do this since I was 11 years old when I started to surf and compete. I make friends easily, I'm laughing, I always want to be on the street, make a surf trip a distant beach, bathing in the water fall, up on the hill to see the visual, like me rent to day things, but of course when I have I have to work until the end.
