we are a couple and we love to travel, we are cruisers sailing,we love nature and sea.
First of all the place is amazing, no doubts about, it is the best place on the island, there is not an hotel, in all the island capable to compare in terms of location, beauty, serenity, calm. If you are going to Ilhabella to rest and having a romantic gateway do not hesitate in staying here.
unfortunately we did not meet Janne, but for sure she is a great person, because Davide is a great host, as well as, their two adorable dogs.
The breakfast was amazing, the room where we were staying (a suite) was comfortable, very clean, with space to organize our belongings and safe.
If you love to be surrounded by nature, sleep with waves sound, wake up with birds sounds you will love to stay here. Davide has a great music taste, we did not spend to much time in pool or in the natural pool, but every time we were there the music was amazing. I love dogs, so I am suspicious to say that, but I just loved both dogs.
Concluding we had a great time, we went for a romantic gateway and it was perfect, as soon as we arrived and saw the view we forget about the 6 hours we passed on the road.
Response from Davide E Janne:
ola' Bernard e Patricia, thank u so much for the amazing review, davide e janne
This house is just paradise. The swimming pool overlooking the sea is amazing.
Besides the swimming pool on the terrace, there is a natural swimming pool just in front of the house: you can snorkel and see some fishes, crabs or shrimps.
The room is spacious and clean. There is a hammock in front: very nice to read a book in the shade.
The home owner (David and Janne) are lovely and helpful which is a very good plus.
Seriously, if you want to relax in Ilhabela don't look further.
anfitriões muito simpáticos e amigáveis!
quarto muito confortável!
casa maravilhosa com uma vista incrível!
The house is amazing, just in front of the sea, with a nice deck area and pool, we loved staying there. The bedroom suite is nice and clean, and the mosquito net helps a lot to keep mosquitoes at the bay. Janne and Davide are great hosts!
My wife and I were ther as a romantic getaway, and for some much needed rest from our weekly grind at the big city of Sao Paulo.
Excellent vacation, our expectations were fulfilled!! We arrived late Friday night, about 11pm, and arrived with no trouble, following the directions that were given us. The bedroom was great, with a big bed and a mosquito net around it. The bathroom was very spacious and everything looked beautiful and clean. The view from the house (even late at night) was as we had hoped it would be, and the pictures give it credit. That night we slept to the gentle sounds of the waves, and nothing else. The house is very secluded, and there are no hotels or rowdy neighbors nearby.
The next morning we woke up to an abundant and varied breakfast served at the coverd porch (with excellent views to the sea, garden and the pool) and we spent most of the morning and till midday enjoying the pool and just relaxing. The views to both the sea and the mountain behind the house are first rate, and no hotels I know can compete with it. The view of the house itself is worthy of an arquitecture and garden design magazine cover.
The hosts are woderful, very helpful and attentive. They know exactly how to look after visitors. While giving us absolute freedom and privacy, they were there in case of need, and if a conversation was struck up they were cordial and well informed about the place, and were able to give us very good advice.
We stayed two nights (from Friday night to Sunday morning), and on Saturday our room was cleaned satisfactorily.
They don't serve lunch or supper, but they offered us the use of their porch dining area so we could bring our own pizza from a pizzeria close by, and let us use their dishes and silverware. Probably for us, the best part was having supper on the porch, enjoying the perfect pizza and the wine we had brought with us. Also, using the pool with the magnificent views was a highlight as well.
This is our first Airbnb vacation, and it really exceeded expectations. Not just as guests, but for the destination as well. It is well worth the six hour drive from Sao Paulo!
Davide e Janne foram muito gentis e hospitais conosco. Nos sugeriram lugares com costo/beneficio muito bom seja para comer como pra visitar.
O lugar è maravilhoso! O quarto è muito romântico ideal para casal. A piscina com solarium è muito relaxante para tomar o sol, e além disso no aceso ao mar ha uma piscina natural muito legal. Uma das coisas que a gente curtiu mais foi o cafe da manha com vista ao mar acompanhado com musica agradável !!! Com certeza a gente volta logo, por ter passado dias muito bacanas.
Davide and Janne are very friendly and helpful hosts with a wonderful house, directly at the coast. Highliy recommended!!
Davide and Janne were excellent hosts. Thoughtful and kind, they gave us tips on restaurants, hiking and scuba diving on the island.
The house is beautiful and has very pleasant surroundings, such as the deck and pool. Talking about the pool... the view from there is magnificent and watching the sunset is just memorable.
Davide e Janne foram excelentes anfitriões. Nos receberam muito bem e foram sempre muito gentis, nos dando dicas de restaurantes, trilhas e mergulho na região.
A casa é linda e tem ambientes muito agradáveis, principalmente o deck e a piscina. O por do sol é memorável e vale muitas fotos!
Davide and Janne house is amazing! Located by the sea cost, you can hear the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks from inside the bedroom. It's the perfect escape to relax and enjoy the sea and sun. Furthermore, I was very welcomed by the owners. Davide and his wife are really friendly and nice! I plan to go back soon.
Davide and Janne's house is absolutely beautiful. Great location by the sea, amazing views to wake up to and enjoy by the pool.
We had such a great time staying with them, they really went above and beyond and were generous hosts - and we would recommend their house to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend in Ilhabela.
Davide and Jeanne are very nice and polite guys! We hope to visit them soon in their beautiful place in Brazil!!!
