About this listing
Great apartment with modern kitch/living room on 1st floor very cutely decorated. Clean and spacious. On th e2nd floor a warm wood mezzanine bedroom +walk in closet, plus a 3rd level chill out terrace with gorgeous sea, sky, stars and mountain view.
The apartment doesn´t have AC or TV, you are supposed to live like a local, but there are fans to keep you cool!
You can cook, relax, read, feel inspired, I treat it as my retreat, very good energy around!
Short walk to the beach, though a charming path with a local church. The beach is huge with white sand, the ocean is quite active so it is good for surfing.
This apartment is part of Vila Harmonia, a boutique B&B that my mother manages, so if you are a big group you can also rent a bigger apartment on this site (website hidden)
Wifi is included, I can give you the password!
The airport is 15m away from my place, and it should cost about 35 reais.
Campeche is the latest cool place of Floripa, it is easy access and getting a lot of new visitors and action. It is a great beach and good for surfing. Also very laid back, and safe, you can walk around on shorts and flip flops, not a lot of parties, more residential but still one of the best places in the island to be, very local.
Eat at the pizza place at the corner at the house, it is delicious,Forneria Capela I think!! There is also a little grocery store on the corner of the street, and a big supermarket filled with yummy stuff (and fresh eggs on demmand) 10m walk away. In the summertime you also find some snacks at the beach right in front, or walk furthermore for restaurants!
On Avenida Pequeno principe nearby, there are a lot of other restaurants with all choices of food, sushi, brazilian, organic, bakery, cafes etc...The organic restaurant is great- Flor do Grao, and organic supermarket with the best banana cake you will ever try in your life - Casarão Verde.
Walk to the beach trough the church and cemitery, it is cool, and stay at that beach if you like calm, or walk to your right 15m you´ll be at the cool beach with bar and volleyball and girls in bikinis! The whole sh´bam!
You can rent a boat and go to the island in front (the one you can see from my rooftop). Its cool but it will take you a whole day so its not that cool if you can be doing something else.
Travel to other places of the island (but rent a car first, taxis are sometimes complicated) Or a scooter!
Jurere is a neighbourhood in the north where all the "show me the money" action happens, its a mix of St tropez and Ibiza! be prepared to pay an arm and a leg for everything!
Eat at DONNA (great great food) party at CAFE DE LA MUSIQUE (these are the best all the other places are cool also but teenage crowd mostly)
In the city center is more city environment, you can go to the fresh fish market at BOX 51 its well known little restaurant with great fish tapas...Also ATALIBA has the best brazilian meat barbecue, get ready to eat till you drop... (choose a rainy day cause you´ll stay there long and will want to sleep after)
El DIVINO LOUNGE is a great complex to have dinner in the restaurant(same kind of menu as Donna) or sushi in the patio with dj or live music, and then go into the club, lots of beautiful people there and it is always full!!
In Lagoa da Conceição, 15m drive from the house, is where all the hippies and more local crowd goes, still fun to see and cool alternative restaurants and cafés more laid back, lots of veggie organic places to eat and international cuisine as well, thai, indian, japanese, yum yum yummmm...Also a cool irish pub (BLACK SWAN) and other live band bars like John Bull...
Nearby are the beaches Joaquina where you can go sandsurfing on the dunes, and Praia Mole, the famous surfer beach, very cool and unpretentious, but still gorgeous people and great international beach infrastructure! Also a gay and nudist beach nearby!
South of the Island you get the best live fresh oysters at OSTRADAMUS in Ribeirão da ilha, wich is a local fishermans community... go at sunset since restaurants have like a pier inside the water and sun sets with an amazing view!
Bou can also get some nice sunset at Santo Antonio de Lisboa, with some nice oyster bars as well, a bit more fancy but very cool place!
Enjoy Floripa! I am sure you will love it (if its not raining)!
NO SMOKING. And Behave!!!
Oh and DO NOT THROW TOILET PAPER ON THE TOILET, this Eco house has a green pit only supports organic stuff coming out of your body!!!

It is called Villa Harmonia for a reason!
Enjoy much Love, peace and happiness!
