O Mario foi um anfitrião muito atencioso, prestando atenção aos detalhes. Suas dicas foram muito úteis, tornando nossa estadia muito agradável. Recomendo muito a todos.
Essa não foi a nossa primeira vez no sítio do Mário em Gonçalves, desde que conhecemos o lugar ficamos em busca de uma oportunidade para voltar e agora conseguimos. Mais uma vez a estadia foi impecável, desde as informações prévias muito detalhadas, passando pela organização e beleza do lugar e terminando em um álbum cheio e fotografias com recordações preciosas.
Experiência altamente recomendada!
If you are looking for some peace and quiet, breathing fresh air and seeing stars at night, this is the place.
Host is very nice and welcoming. We really enjoyed the tranquility.
We will be booking here again.
Mario's house was awesome. The place has incredible views and the house is clean and cozy. The waterfalls around the area are great to visit. This is the perfect romantic getaway or a family vacation spot. Don't miss this amazing experience!!!
I stayed in the house with my wife, for 7 nights, and we had a very pleasant time.
We had been a number of times in Gonçalves before, but never to the region where the house is located, the Atrás da Pedra ("Behind the Stone") neighbourhood, which is very nice. And the particular spot of the house is simply magnificent: very high, with lush vegetation all around, and an incredible wide view of the Mantiqueira mountain range, that can be continuously appreciated from inside the house, through various windows, and most dramatically, from the open outside porch and the wooden deck that extends from it. Really nice scenery!
The house is simple but has all the basic infrastucture for a pleasant stay. If it had a microwave oven, an electric kettle, and Internet access, it would be even better. As for Internet, at least it has a strong enough 3G signal (apparently for all operators, I'm told) which helps a lot.
The high ceiling of the social area of the house is a particular plus in its construction, as it gives us the sensation of a much larger place than it really is. In particular, the mezzanine, which can accommodate two people for sleeping, is a great beneficiary of the feeling of amplitude.
The contact with Mario, the owner, has been easy and pleasant, during all the time, from booking to key delivery; he was always very friendly and with prompt reaction to all my communications. A really trustable guy!
One concern any tenant should have in mind -- in fact, in tune with Mario's explicit warnings given in the house's 'field guide' he sends us after booking -- is that there are spiders around. We had a few situations in this respect, and even made a couple of suggestions to Mario, which I have no doubt will be implemented.
We stayed in the house in full Brazilian Summer, with scorching sun during the day, but in the evenings the temperature always went down considerably, which I particularly enjoyed.
So, all in all, this is a very pleasant and peaceful place in Gonçalves, that I wholeheartedly recommend, and where I'll certainly return to!
Mario has a lovely home, with a spectacular view from the main bedroom and living areas. There is nature all around in the form of birds, trees, flowers, and butterflies. For those that are seeking a quiet, natural, respite and do not mind driving down dirt roads this is a great destination. We very much enjoyed our time in the woods. Thank you Mario!
Obrigado pela atenção, pelas dicas e confiança depositada.
