Interaction with Guests
I live in the US and am available for pre-trip questions. I will not be in Florianopolis during your stay, however, a local manager of this property who lives in Floripa will be available to provide local assistance during your stay.
This unique beach front location is walking distance to some great restuarants and a 10 minute drive to several popular clubs and other night life options in Jurere.
As there are water inlets on both sides of the the beach in front of the resort complex this beach is not crowded as most people do not cross the water inlets from the surrounding beaches to go to this beach. Because this beach is typically not crowded it is almost like a private beach. A walking bridge that leads directly to the sand provides quick and easy access to this great beach (see photos). If you want to experience a more crowded beach you can walk a few blocks to one of the other beaches in Cacheoria do Bom Jesus.
This location is close to the major northern beaches (Jurerê, Canasvieiras, Brava, Ponta das Canas and Ingleses) which can be reached by car or a public bus that has a stop next to the resort.
Secure underground parking provided.
Bus line available right outside of the resort complex.
Other Things to Note
Access provided to one secure underground parking space.
No indoor smoking.
Please conserve energy and turn off electronics and climate control system when they are when not in use.

Great host, very helpful in helping us get set up at the apartment. Beautiful view and very well organized apartment. Highly complex energy and sound system set up, so we really appreciated the help!
Would happily stay again.
Amazing place! Everything was perfect! Great location, apartment extremely clean, well decorated, and fully furnished. One of the best places that I have ever stayed in the world!
We had a great stay in Ravi's condo. It was indeed luxurious--a beautiful condo in a great complex that felt like a resort. It has its own private beach which was lovely, a great swimming pool with bar service, helpful staff and good security. The condo itself is exactly like the pictures. Very chic and modern. We had a group of 5 people and it was comfortable for everyone to sleep, with one on an air mattress. We really appreciated the 3 bathrooms. The only negative thing I would say is that it is hard to cook in the kitchen because the sink is so small. But there is really no need to cook anyway with all the dining options in close proximity. Great place I would recommend to anyone traveling to Floripa. Also, a couple words about Ravi himself--while he wasn't in Floripa at the time he was a fantastic host in the sense that he sent me many detailed emails about the apartment, recommendations re beaches, restaurants etc. and the contact/host he put me in touch with--Juliana--even helped us book dinner reservations and buy tickets to a New Years party. Overall a wonderful stay.
The apartment is in a secure and well-maintained resort which has been built within the past few years. It is tastefully decorated and is pretty well equipped for a beach condo. We were a group of four adults and it was just about big enough for us. However I think it would be ideally suited for parents with kids.
The complex contains a number of large swimming pools, a basic gym and a small bar all of which are private and were relatively quiet at the time of our visit. To access the beach you have to leave the complex and then it is a pretty simple 5-10 minute walk to the beach. The beach is clean, pretty and quiet. Again, perfect for families or relaxing with no one hassling you.
I would very strongly advise that you hire a car if you rent this condo - other than a couple of restaurants within 2km and a small supermarket the area is extremely quiet and you'll need a car to get into the main town and/or the busier parts of the island. Getting taxis (especially with limited Portuguese) is near on impossible so it is far better to have your own transport. The condo comes with secure parking provided.
Ravi and Juliana were extremely helpful and courteous throughout our stay and have communicated excellently where small issues arose. Would certainly recommend staying here if you are after a relaxed beach holiday in a nice Floripa condo.
Rob was an excellent host who went above and beyond to accommodate us. Super informative about the property and surrounds, full of great recommendations. His communication was thorough, detailed, and clear. He didn't even bat an eye at our 2am check-in. Villa Marine is in a quiet residential area of Floripa close to the club/shopping area of Jurere. Lagoa and downtown is about an hour by taxi. The property itself is gorgeous and private with comfortable lodging for two couples. The kitchen is kitted out with all the fixings one would need for a dinner in. Overall, a stellar visit. Thanks, Rob!
