This is an original house built by the uruguayan architect Ana Beky Gabay few years ago.
It's completely sorrounded by the mata atlantica, and it's 200 metres walking from a fabulous beach. A paradise of nature and tranquillity. I'm not in Ilhèus now that's why I'm renting my house. The caretaker and his family are looking after the house. They live very close from the Arcoiris house. They are a sweet, friendly family who daily make sure that everything is okay. The caretaker can tell you wonderful stories about the area. The house is very safe
I don't accept last minute reservations. For a best staying in the house please contact me at least 7 days before your reservation. Minimum stay 7 nights.
Itacarè is only 25 minutes by car and Ilhèus 15-20minutes.
There are 2 bedrooms, so there's space for 4 persons, a big living room, an open space kitchen, one big bathroom and a toilette, a small laundry space,a mezzanine, an outdoor terrace another big terrace on the roof. 6000mq of mata forest with a short path.
there's another small house for the caretaker of the Arcoiris.

continue north toward Itacarè Look for Km marker 25 100m after km 25 you'll see a sign for LUZIMARES on your right, at the opposite side there's a small dirt road road ( with a green house at the corner), TURN LEFT onto this road Go another 150m , passing 2 other paths to the right, until another sign: RECANTO DA PAZ. TURN RIGHT here and go just 30m , The house is the first property on your left. you'll see a big gate that leads into the garage area. Alternatively, you can NOT turn right at the RECANTO DA PAZ sign but continue, turning RIGHT at the first driveway. There are several houses on the left and the Arcoiris house is on the right with a small gate that enters into the rear area of the house. The caretaker, Joao, lives in the house that sits behind the row of houses to the left.
from the house which name is Arcoiris to Itacarè you will drive through a wonderful road sorrounded by the green there are some wonderful nature places to visit, beaches and falls. Car is indispensable you can easily rent one at the Airport in Ilhéus.:
praia de Itacarezinho
praia de havaisinho
praia de engenhoca
praia jeribucaçu ( I've never seen signs for this one, you should ask the exact place to stop the car)
Other places to visit around Ilhèus:
Ecoparque de Unas
Ceplac park interesting if you want to know more abot the mata :
Camamu town: Just one hour by car more or less
Lagoa encantada : is about 10km before the house coming from Ilhèus You can go there by car and then go on a boat tour crossing the lagoa, there's also a fall and a tipical restaurant.
Casa da empada: it's an excelent restaurant ( saudade...) , a lovely place to have breakfast, or for an afternoon break. Here you can eat delicious typical empadas. It's only 2km and a half from the house. ( km 28 rodovia Ilheus- itacarè)
I also use a lot the bus when I'm there..The busstop is just at the corner of the small road to reach my house and it'is the one that goes to ilhèus. At the oppsite side of the main street ( rodovia) there's the busstop of the bus which goes to Itacarè.
The name of the bus is Rota it takes from 30 to 60minutes to get to ilhèus ( the same to itacarè) depending on the quantity of people, school time, traffic etc... This bus is very comfortable and clean, you buy the ticket when you get on about Rs 3,00- Rs 4,00 ( but it always changes depending on the charging man). Also you never know the right time it arrives at the busstop, sometimes it arrives when you expect , sometimes it arrives after an hour. There's also another bus to go to Ilhèus number 36, it takes much more time and it's even more tipical , sometimes it's unbelieveble crowded especially at school time.
So I really recommend to use the bus only for folk tours.
Itacarè is famous for the wonderful beaches, and in the evenings there are a lot of restaurants and parties.
In Ilhèus where the famous brazilian writer Jorge Amado was born there are all the useful infrastructures: supermarkets hospital, airport etc...
Nós adoramos passar esses dias de carnaval na casa da Rosanna. A casa é linda, possui uma infra estrutura excelente, com uma biodiversidade marcante, e portanto é ideal para passar um período de completa paz e harmonia. A casa fica em um local estratégico que te permite conhecer toda a região de Ilhéus percorrendo distancias pequenas de carro, em torno de 30 Km . Praias paradisíacas, cachoeiras, lagoas, pequenos vilarejos e cidade a beira mar são algumas das muitas possibilidades que a região oferece.Não tivemos nenhum tipo de problema durante nossa estadia na casa, o caseiro que cuida da casa e sua família foram muito acolhedores e nos ajudaram em tudo que precisamos, e os vizinhos não incomodaram em nada. Mesmo distante, a Rosanna foi super atenciosa conosco e nos atendeu sempre que solicitada, passando dicas e informações que tornaram nosso carnaval ainda melhor. Nós aconselhamos a todos que querem conhecer esta região maravilhosa a ficarem nesta casa de puro charme e bom gosto. Obrigado Rosanna por ter disponibilizado este lugar encantador!
We were delighted to stay at Rosanna's sweet house in southern Bahia. Rosanna made a very personal connection that infused our stay at her home with meaning and appreciation. The house is spacious, lovely and the kitchen well appointed. The location cannot be better with a pleasant stroll to a magnificent beach. The caretaker of the house is a sweet, friendly man who visited us daily and made sure that everything was okay, opened up coconuts for us, and told us wonderful stories about the area. The house is very safe. Do try to arrive by daylight to find the house with ease.
