This beautiful and amazing villa is situated right by the beach at Ponta do Mutá, just 10 minutes away from the cosy village Barra Grande. On a slope in the middle of the jungle with an amazing view of the ocean with only 50 meters to the beach, this truly is a little piece of heaven.
The villa has one master bedroom, two extra separate bedrooms, one large living room, a kitchen and a bathroom with a shower (no hot water), all connected by a hallway. The total area of the house is 100 m2, and including the large deck surrounding most of the villa the total area is 150 m2. The villa sleeps four persons and is ideal for a family with children, but can easily accomodate up to six people if using the sofa in the living room or the extra mattress. All rooms are equipped with fans.
The villa is part of the secluded Nirvana Beach Club, with a club house where you can watch cable-TV, connect to the Internet, relax, read or use the communal kitchen or washing machine. At the moment only a couple of houses have been built, giving you all the peace of mind you could wish for.
The beautiful village of Barra Grande is just a 10 minutes walk away, where you will find grocery stores, a pharmacy, a small hospital and an amazing range of great restaurants and bars.
There are a lot activities possible in addition to swimming and sunbathing, such as surfing, snorkelling in Taipus de Fora, kayaking in the ocean, take a boat trip in the bay and visit the waterfall or playing tennis at Posada Bahia Boa (20 minutes away). Contact the local operator Camamu Adventures to help you plan excursions and activities.
How to get here from Salvador: From Salvador it's a 3-4 hour trip to Barra Grande. Firstly you need to take the ferry from Salvador (Mercado Modelo) to Mar Grande, from where you can take a bus or cab to Camamu. From Camamu you need to take a speedboat (Camamu Adventures) and 30 min later you will arrive by the pier in the village of Barra Grande.
How to get here from Ilheus: From Ilhues it's a 2-3 hour trip to Barra Grande. Firstly you need take a taxi/bus to Camamu. From Camamu you need to take a speedboat and 30 min later you will arrive by the pier in the village of Barra Grande. You can also take the car directly from Ilheus to Barra Grande, without taking the boat from Camamu. However the roads from Marau can be difficult so make sure you have a car that can make it on bumpy dirt roads.
When you arrive the house should be prepared. All beds will be made, you don’t need to bring your own sheets or pillows. You will also be given white towels for use in the house only (not the beach) and one coloured towel for use on the beach.
There are fans in all bedrooms. Alls fans are controlled manually by a panel on the wall. Make sure to put the fans in reverse (counter-clockwise) circulation for best ventilation effect.
All electricity outlets are 220V. Do not plug in devices you have brought with you that are for 110V use, they will catch fire.
In the club house you will have access to Wireless Internet. Just connect to the Nirvana Beach Club wifi, no code is necessary. You will also be able to watch cable TV if you want to. Make sure to be quiet after 10pm as there are other rooms close to the Club House.
We will always try to arrange so you have a fresh water that you can drink and some basic breakfast in the fridge. Feel free to use and consume whatever is in the kitchen (coffee, tea, granola...).
Do not drag heavy luggage on the wooden floor, it will leave marks. Please carry everything.
Do not throw toilet paper into the toilet, throw it in the disposer beside the toilet.
Only light candles in the house if the electricity is out, to avoid fires (the piacava roof is a risk).
No smoking! Do not smoke in the house or on the deck, to avoid fires (the piacava roof is a risk).
Use the trash bin outside the house (on the same side as the outside table and by the coconut tree), this will be emptied by the ground staff regularly. Make sure to use the lid.
We always sleep with the sliding doors open for fresh air. There is no need to worry about the safety.
The toaster and the water heater need some adapters to fit in to the electrical outlet in the kitchen. So just switch between them if using one or the other.
There is a water tap on the side of the house, when you come up the stairs from the beach, where you can wash off the sand from your feet. You can also reach the shower from the deck and go directly to the shower without bringing in sand to the house.
There are guard dogs around the Beach Club. The dogs will always bark. Don’t be afraid, just walk with confidence :)
We had a wonderful stay at the house. It is a great get away spot with wonderful beaches and great food. The house was in top shape and the people on the property are super friendly. Definitely an adventure to get there by road but its fun if you drive a 4x4 :).
Malgré une arrivée un peu compliquée due à la saison hivernale Charlotte et Cem ce sont révélés des hôtes à l'écoute et ont fait le nécessaire pour rendre notre séjour très agréable.
La jolie villa se situe à quelques mètres de la plage dans un parc arboré. c'est un endroit idéal pour les amoureux du calme et de la nature...
Awsome jungle experience... The house was really nice and clean. Right at the beach with couple nice sunset lounges. Early in the morning you can see the monkeys comming really close to the house.
The house is beautiful, very well constructed, it is simple and great.
The views, the beaches nearby are truly lovely.
It is situated inside a condominium and we felt safe, always leaving the house open, sleeping with open doors, leaving all eletronic devices around.
it is quite a remote place and I do think the owners of the house could have given us more information on practicallities, he was very laconic when I wrote before our trip to try and get information.
but overall it is amazing and I recommend the trip.
This is the second consecutive year that we spend our summer vacation in this house. The place is truly amazing: the house itself, the beach, the village, everything is perfect.
Fantastic house, as beautiful as seen in the pictures. We had a most wonderful holiday here.
This was honestly one of the most beautiful, amazing places I have ever visited. It is a little bit of a journey to reach from Salvador, but that is what makes the place so much better than somewhere like morro de sao paulo.
This place has 3 great things;
1. The house is stunning, simple and with great design.
2. The location is perfect, in beautiful private gardens, with mango trees and a beach at the end of the garden that is almost your own private beach
3. Isolation, there are almost no other tourists around here, only a few locals. You can walk down the beach almost on your own to eat at delicious local restaurants.
In short it is perfection, and I hope I will be able to come back soon!
About the Host, Charlotte & Cem
we originally come from Sweden, but we live in Malibu, USA at the moment. Eight years ago we found our little piece of paradise in Barra Grande in Brazil. We built a beautiful house and go there every winter in December. We would love for other people to enjoy it, so just book it and go there. You'll never regret it.
