Three charming chalets in a tropical forest walking distance (780 m) from a pristine beach. Choice of a chalet with a king size bed or two single beds. Each has a private balcony, indoor and outdoor shower, A/C, a full kitchen, and private parking.
A nice little spot along a quiet road in Maresias near the beach and a waterfall. Wake up to the sound of tropical birds and the call of monkeys. Relax in the comfort of your chalet with a spectacular view of the forest from your private balcony.
Each chalet has a private balcony, parking, outdoor shower and kitchen.
Each kitchen includes a fridge, microwave, electric stovetop, and kitchenware.
Interaction with Guests
While your privacy will be respected, we will be more than happy to help answer questions and point you in the right direction.
The peace of nature will be at your doorstep. You’ll be able to see toucans, tanagers, parrots, aracaris and other native birds of the Atlantic forest.
Walking distance to one of the best surf spots in Brazil! Consistent beach break with good barrels and warm water most of the year. Also 2 km from restaurants and nightlife in downtown Maresias (you can rent surfboards and bikes here if you wish).
Maresias is located 170km from São Paulo. There are bus lines with multiple trips per day traveling from Terminal Tietê and also form Guarulhos international airport. The bus will take you 500m from the chalets.
Other Things to Note
The place is ideal for those who like to be in touch with nature without giving up comfort.
We are in a quiet residential street, so please respect the quiet of the night.
O chalé é ótimo, tal qual como descrito, confortável e fiel às fotos do anúncio. Fica em um lugar bonito, tranquilo e próximo à praia. O contato como o anfitrião foi fácil e ele se mostrou prestativo. Recomendo a quem for a Maresias e certamente ficaria lá novamente.
The place could be much better suited for the Brazilian autumn.
The access to the house was very difficult as the muddy road was washed by the rain and rocks emerged. Turning your car into the first house's steep, muddy and slippery parking can be a difficult maneuver.
After getting out of the car, it's all mud around you (where in the pictures taken in the summertime show grass).
The stairs access to the house are partially obstructed by the vegetation that has grow in the meantime.
The outside kitchen is totally unsuited for autumn / winter.
The poor insulation makes the house a bit on the moist side and considering it is a house in the mid of nature, some measures could have been taken in order to prevent bugs and Mosquitos to come In freely trough the windows sides that aren't sealed.
There's a constant urine-like smell that I believe can be related to the wastewater system the house relies on, which is a bit annoying.
The internet simply doesn't work. Only when you arrive you'll find a paper saying that it is an unstable connection, blaming the Internet provider, which although plausible is not acceptable for a house that has Internet publicly marked on its listing.
To finish off the way this review started, please don't take this as a rant and rather a very constructive opinion. This house is probably wonderful in the summer (if some of the above issues are address), but forget about going there on the autumn/winter, you'll be disappointed.
The owner provided swift communication prior to arrival and offered an early checkin before the advertised time which was nice.
We are sorry that you had an unpleasant experience at our chalet, though we do appreciate your honest feedback.
Unfortunately, when one wants to stay in a place in close to nature, it is reasonable to expect an unpaved road, as you could clearly see on the properties profile pictures. We like to think this adds to the charm of the place.
We were surprised by your comment regarding the lack of internet, as we did make it clear on our Airbnb website that there would be no Internet connection available. While an unreliable connection, we still do provide a password to the free WIFI connection, just in case.
Again, the plants and the mosquitos are part of the environment here. We appreciate your tip about providing mosquito nets. You may recall that the bedroom window has a mosquito net and we apologize the bathroom did not. We are installing a net in the bathroom window.
To address the wastewater complaint, Maresias and most beach communities in the area have no wastewater treatment facilities, hence we spent a lot of money and energy to built a eco-friendly treatment system that includes biological filters. In addition, we had the best professionals available install this system, and we plan to have them re-evaluate for future guests. Anyway, we never had such complain before.
We were surprised by your comments because we have been renting the chalets for 17 months so far and we had 34 positive and enthusiastic comments from previous Airbnb guests. We recommend to you and future guests to carefully read the details of our posting so that you are prepared for the full tropical experience. That said, we truly appreciate your comments because we are always trying our make improvements to our accomodations.
Passei uma ótima semana no Chalé! É bem equipado e confortável!
É bem localizado, porém tem um pequeno trecho com estrada de terra com algumas pedras e como meu carro é baixo ficou um pouco complicado de chegar.
O Ricardo foi um ótimo anfitrião e esteve disponível para ajudar quando precisamos.
O Ricardo foi muito atencioso desde o primeiro contato e nos deixou super a vontade, super recomendo!
O chalé é muito limpo, prático, estruturado, cama grande e muito confortável, toalhas e roupa de cama limpos e um ar condicionado novinho!
Tudo em ordem,exatamente como nas fotos do anúncio. Acomoda um casal perfeitamente.
Pouca privacidade com os chalés ao lado, mas nada grave. O chuveiro de fora é muuito bom, vale a pena um banho!
O único ponto negativo é o acesso via carro pois o pedaço da rua perto do chalé (certa de 200mts antes) é muito ruim (pedras grandes e pontudas).
La comunicacion con Ricardo fue fluida y accesible en todo momento. Los chales son lindos, ordenados y limpios. Sin embargo el acceso a ellos es un poco dificil debido a las condiciones del camino. El wifi casi no funciona cuando llueve, pero es aceptable cuando hay buen clima. Fue muy lindo estar inmerso en la mata, se respira aire puro y se siente el sonido de la naturaleza.
Ricardo fue muy atento y muy cordial con nosotros. Estuvo pendiente de que estuviésemos cómodos y de que no nos haga falta nada. RECOMIENDO CHALETS MARITACAS!
Essa foi a segunda vez que me hospedei no chalé do Ricardo em Maresias. O lugar é perfeito para quem está procurando sossego e paz próximo à praia de Maresias. Por estar localizado próximo à mata, o lugar é muito fresco e aconchegante. A cama de casal é grande e bastante confortável. Tem uma cozinha externa com todos os utensílios necessários. Por fim, Ricardo é um excelente anfitrião, muito legal, atencioso e dedicado. A praia fica a 10 minutos de caminhada e o percurso é tranquilo. Tem uma vendinha próxima ao chalé também, muito útil principalmente para comprar café da manhã.
