I'm a french retired sailing captain living alone on my 57 feet boat in paradise....
Michel est sympa, il nous a permis d'avoir une première découverte de la ville de Paraty. L'expérience de passer deux nuits sur un bateau et de se réveiller sur la baie de Paraty est intéressante, par contre un gros regret : de ne pas pouvoir se baigner dans la baie car l'eau n'est pas propre.
We had such an incredible time on Michel's boat. We didn't quite know what to expect before we got there, but there couldn't have been a more memorable way to spend our last couple of days in Brazil.
We highly recommend this to everyone. To wake up in paradise, jump from your bed straight in to the warm sea, eat a huge delicious breakfast prepared by Michel, and lie on deck watching the world go by and the stars at night. Perfect.
Paraty en voilier !!!que du bonheur ,merci Michel pour nous avoir accueillis a bord .Visite guidée avec le breton local ,chambre du capitaine nickel , beaucoup de charme , sur le pont petit hamac pour déguster une boisson en admirant le coucher de soleil , séjour a conseiller !!
Staying w/Michel was a great way to discover Paraty. Relaxing on the boat was exactly what I needed. Easy access to town and local beaches when I wanted with advice and pointers. Met lots of interesting people through Michel as well. Great time all around.
We had a great time on Michel's boat in Paraty Bay. Every day we went to incredible beaches and islands. The boat is beautiful and very comfortable. There's lots of shade on deck and comfortable places to sit. Interior spaces are tight but, after all, it's a boat. My kids loved the bunk beds in one room and my wife and I were very comfortable in another. Michel makes a great breakfast. We had other meals at seafood restaurants around the bay. They were generally good but a bit expensive. If you don't like fish and seafood, you better like rice and beans.
Overall I recommend a stay on the Horizonte Azul. We had a great time sailing with Michel.
Très belle expérience:
Bateau confortable, accueil sympathique et bons petits déjeuners. Michel à le sens du service et a envie de partager les beaux endroits et les bonnes adresses de la Costa Verde.
It was a great experience to be at the boat of Michel. He is very kind, showed us Paraty and made a great breakfast full of lovely fruit.
At night it was very hot so we slept not so very good, maybe a bigger van is an idea.
You have a beautiful view at Paraty
Michel, good luck with everything.
I stayed on Michel's boat for two days, together with a couple from Rio, during a local music festival. It was a fantastic experience. We swam off the boat and got to take in the beauty of Paraty from the water. This is the kind of unique travel encounter that Airbnb makes accessible and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to stay in such an exceptional place. Michel is a tres genial host who takes great care of his guests. He picked me up from the bus station and transported my very heavy bag on his bike. I also got some of the best sleep of the whole trip. The boat is like one big cradle.
We arrived to Paraty in the morning and Michel went to the Rodoviaria to welcome us. He was a very attentive host, he showed us Paraty, introduced us to some of his friends and took us to really nice places in town. We also had a great time while in the boat, which is just as described. It was our first time in a boat and overall we had a great experience. Thanks Michel!!!
Michel was more than an excellent host...we had such an amazing experience, Paraty is a charming, lovely, beautiful city and staying at his boat just made our trip more special. Comfortable room,great breakfast with a view of the paradise every morning. Michel is very nice and friendly, He gave us lots of sugestions, we could get to know the local culture, I'm definitely coming back soon!! Thanks a lot Michel for your hospitality!!
