It was beach front, clean,cozy, had delicious breakfasts and is owned by people who really know Paraty. All of this for such a low price too! This will be where I will stay every time I'm in Paraty. Simon was also a lot of help when it came to booking activities and day trips for us.

This was a good choice for our evening in Paraty. Right near the beach -- quiet and peaceful. The hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast was nice as well. A fine choice. We wish we could have stayed longer! Hope to return.

Simon and Helena were wonderful hosts! They were accommodating, sweet, and able to give advice on what to do. The breakfast was wonderful and had something for everyone, even my five year old who was having a hard time with food on this trip. My five year old son was able to feed monkeys and fit right in at the... More

Simon and Helena were fantastic hosts who made the guesthouse feel like home for us. They were extremely warm and welcoming and went out of their way for us. We didn't have great weather over the few days we were there but the rooms were cozy and, with the town only a short walk and Simon's excellent recommendations, there was... More

This place is a gem. Quiet location, nice and clean rooms, great breakfast and lovely people. We travelled with two small kids, and found the place to be very child friendly. My son still talks about the breakfasts, where he got to eat cake AND feed monkeys at the same time, his definition of paradise:) For us adults, the best... More

We stayed at the pousada for 2 nights. Everything was really cool: great and quiet location (better with a car), nice and funny tenants, good rooms and good breakfast (definitely the best tapioca we had!!). Well, a very nice address to know in the neighborhood ! Ate mais, Lise & Yann.

We were warmly welcomed by Simon and Helen. Great advice for the best places to go and the best prices in Paraty. Highly recommend the happy hour at the microbrewery on Saturdays and the Escuna tours organised by Simon. Great breakfast! Helen was happy to share some her recipes with us. A fun and relaxed place at a fair price.... More

We only stayed in this wonderful B&B for 2 nights but really wished we could have stayed longer. Simon was an amazing host, always happy to have a chat with you and full of information about pretty much everything. They served the best breakfast we had on our travels around South America- a selection of freshly baked cakes and bread,... More

Wow, what a place. Perfectly located at the quiet end of the beach stretching away from Paraty old centre. Loved it, loved the people, and loved the wild baby monkeys that wanted to share my breakfast too. Perfect if you want the tranquil side of Paraty. Chris
