Private Suite (room + bathroom), air conditioning, an apartment within a luxury condominium.
The condo is located near the beach in Santos, and close to the ferry that goes to the island of Guarujà.
The resort has a swimming pool, pool and BBQ house, gym center, sauna,and a playground for kids, all in a closed and safe enclosure.
The apartment on the 18th floor and is very recent (built in 2010), has all modern equipment, on top of a great terrasse with a 180 degree view over the canal. Very lighty and comfortable.

the block has a supermarket, restaurants, bakery, and a bus stop which leads to many cities and airport.
Quarto privativo, mas o hóspede pode usufruir do apartamento e do condomínio.
Ficarei feliz se o hóspede se sente em casa e ficará com saudades quando for embora.
Esta foi minha primeira experiência neste tipo de hospedagem. Fiquei muito contente pois o que eu mais procurava encontrei. A proximidade e gentileza que a anfitriã demonstrou me deixou a vontade o tempo todo. Tanto eu quanto minha filha ficamos tristes por termos que ir embora. A Sandrine é uma excelente pessoa. Sensível, atenciosa e realmente sabe como estar presente de maneira natural e amistosa.
The main reason I chose this was was location. It was literally five minutes walk from where I would be spending most of my time. On top of that, the price beat out anything I could in a large surrounding area, including hotels and other rooms.
It was very nice that the room was in a guarded condo, so I never had to worry about security and knew everyone that I met on the property lived there or had a reason to be there. I am terrible at directions, so because it was literally along the water, I could easily navigate to and from, instead of having to remember copious landmarks. Utilizing all the amenities is worth it, as I used the gym frequently, as well as the game room with ping pong table and the pool. The host was very friendly and super-helpful and bent over backwards in making me feel welcome and satisfied.
There are two reasons I give the property 4 instead of 5 stars. First, although the pictures are all accurate, I felt that calling a tiny room with a bathroom a "private suite" is a little inaccurate. Because the room shares a wall with the host's bedroom, the only item that makes this is a "private suite" is the door. Let's just say I wouldn't recommend this for a romantic getaway.
Also, I was under the impression that the host would be there, and that's it. When I arrived, there were two other people staying at the condo, including the host's teenage son. Although everyone was super-friendly, my "private suite in a luxury condo" had more of a feel of a hostel.
But again, I cannot express enough the effort the host put out in my times of need, including quickly getting my air conditioner fixed, having my sweaty clothes laundered by the next day, making a few phone calls for me, providing breakfast, and even hailing a cab.
I took a bus to Sao Paulo after checking out, and there is LITERALLY a bus station next door, so I was able to walk 30 feet, hop on a bus, and go on my way. So overall, great place to stay.
Very beautiful home with a gorgeous view of the Santos harbor. I didn't want to move from the covered 40' balcony. I looked up the ships on the internet as they went by to see where they were from and what they carried. Very clean home and and new in a nice area of Santos within walking distance of nice restaurants beaches and shops. Sandrine was very professional and made sure we enjoyed our stay. We felt almost like part of the family as she had a son that my son could play with. I would recommend it to anyone. Safe too with 24 hour security which is normal at the nice places in Santos.
Olá pessoal, eu fiquei 40 dias na casa da Sandrine e sinceramente foi uma experiências extraordinária, um excelente ambiente e uma atmosfera bastante agradável. A convivência com ela foi simplesmente fantástica, me sentia como se estivesse em casa. Ela é demais, esta sempre com um lindo sorriso no rosto e sempre disposta a te ajudar, no que for necessário. O quarto era uma gracinha azul e branco da cor do céu :) E o condomínio fechado eu desfrutei bastante, mais foi a academia de musculação e da piscina onde eu mais usava, só faltou jogar na quadra de basquete, mais infelizmente nao tive tanto tempo. Enfim vale a pena de verdade e eu aconselho 100% Beijos a os dois, e mais uma vez os meus sinceros agradecimentos, vou sentir saudades de voçes dois ;) até a próxima!
P.S. A vista do 18 andar é de tirar o fôlego rsrs :)
Fomos muito bem recepcionados por Sandrine, que nos deixou bem a vontade.
I spent 3 months with Sandrine, and I can highly recommend her! The communication at the beggining was good, Sandrine answered every message fastly. The apartment is very beautiful with a nice location and view. All the apartment was always kept clean. The room is very nice, it has a private bathroom too. I can only say good things about this host family, they are the best people I've ever met! I'm sure no one will be disappointed in choosing Sandrine! I felt all the time very comfortable and I'm sad that my time in Brazil passed so fastly. I would always love to return to Santos and Sandrine's family.
