The village of Itacare is within 45mn drive from Ilheus international airport, and about 120 miles South of Salvador de Bahia, the capital of the North East of Brazil.
Itacare is located on the coast, yet in the heart of the “mata atlantica” the primary Atlantic forest which is considered a natural landmark by the United Nations.
The house is called “Casa Caju” and is located in the “Concha” area, which is by far the nicest and quietest neighborhood in the village. While it is located in a forest stretch that borders the village, the house is still close enough to the ocean that you can hear the distant sound of the waves. Casa Caju is ideally located within walking distance of 5 beautiful beaches (Concha, Resende, Tiririca, Costa and Ribeira) yet close to the heart of the village with its restaurants, shops, bars, surf shops, etc.
Close your eyes and let your mind go, you are in a hammock, gently swinging on the melody of tropical birds, the sound of the waves and the amazing voice of the tropical forest is surrounding you. Now, that’s it, you start appreciating the magic of Bahia’s rhythm…
This tropical style house is extremely comfortable and we built it and decorated it with simplicity, beautiful and comfortable tropical furnitures, aiming for maximum quality of life at all times.
The house has 3 bedrooms, including a master suite with private access to the garden, its own bathroom and a kitchenette. Two large bedrooms are located upstairs, with a shared bathroom, and each with its own private terrace, equipped with hammocks, overlooking the trees.
On the ground floor, a large living room opening up to a huge veranda will welcome you and your friends and family for unforgettable moments. The kitchen, fully equipped and fitted with all cooking utensils opens up to the veranda, adorned with a bar, and is completed by a huge barbecue only a few feet away.
Everything is made to conjugate comfort and relaxation, in an exceptional ecological setting.
The veranda has two large sofas and is surrounded by 6 hammocks which make it rather difficult to leave once you have found your favorite spot for reading, enjoying a delicious drink, napping or just chatting with your friends and family. This area opens up to a large living room, through sliding wooden doors, which has two additional single beds, also used as sofas, a desk and a bookshelf. A video area with DVD player and flat screen TV allows with USB port allows for connecting a computer or simply watching movies. Mosquito nets for the sofas are also available to sleep more guests and/or children.
All this space is entirely open toward the veranda, terrace, the garden and the tropical forest.
In addition a high pressure outside shower and bathroom located at the end of the garden is ideal for an amazing hydro massage when you come back from the beach or for an early shower under the palm trees.

Its an old fashioned House with small Garden. We enjoyed the fast Service and Repairs very much. But i think the house should should be refreshed in many ways. For example the barbecue place was worse and cant be used. Maybe the owner should visit the place soon to see the actual state. If you are not expecting to much for the price you are maybe right.
Lindisima casa, muy bien ubicada y equipada. En este momento hay un problema de ratas en el entretecho del dormitorio de abajo. Vinieron 2 veces a tratar de solucionarlo pero no pudieron. Su encargada, Veruska es súper amable e hizo todo lo posible por mejorar la situación. El internet no funciono bien pero Eric muy amablemente no lo cobro.
