Renata and Collin were so helpful and beautiful hosts! The house in the middle of the forest was very clean and well equipped! Since we were traveling with our daughter they provided an extra mattress and showed us a nice place place at the river were we relaxed with our little one! Thank you so much for everything!

We had a magical stay. The house is really well equipped with everything you could need provided from washing up liquid to a torch and umbrella. Also it is amazingly mossie free (given the jungle location) as very well protected with screens on the windows and doors. The river was gorgeous. We spent such a happy day there swimming and exploring. It is as beautiful as the pics. The most wonderful start to 2017!

Beautiful landscape, wildlife, and waterfalls. Renata and Colin have been doing this for a long time. They understand what is needed and are spot-on in their support of your stay, but never in the way. This is the perfect complement for time down on a crowded beach, go uphill into this spectacular landscape of quiet solitude.

By far best experience I've had on Airbnb. Renata and Colin's place is the most relaxing, beautiful, and peaceful place I've ever stayed at. Bring a couple books and some groceries and you will have wonderful time. Renata and Colin are both very welcoming and helpful and I can't recommend this place enough!

We had a fantastic 4 night stay at Renata and Colin's cottage. The pictures don't do the place justice. Set in lovely big grounds in the forest covered hills near to Paraty we had our very own waterfalls and pools to play in which was just the private paradise we were looking for. Renata and Colin made us feel really welcome and kindly gave us some fresh melon, bananas and some home baked bread to make us feel more at home. We saw a huge range of local wildlife and it also served as a good base to see the other outlying paradise beaches about 40 minute bus ride from Paraty town. Couldn't recommend it enough, wish we had stayed a few more days!

Renata & Colin User ProfileRenata & Colin is a superhost.

We are a Brazilian-Scottish couple. After living in Europe for 12 years, Renata returned to her home country and "imported" her husband. We wanted a peaceful place in the nature, and fell in love with Sitio Namaste as soon as we saw it. Renata is a photographer, Colin is a multi task man - responsible for doing up and finishing the accommodations - and his main passion is wood work.
We really enjoy hosting and getting to know people from all over the world, and sharing our piece of paradise.
