John was a phenomenal host. We were able to relax instantly upon arrival, which is priceless when arriving from a distant country. The fact that John is English is an added comfort for those who aren't fluent in Portuguese. Everything was above and beyond, from the beautiful interior design, to the patio and pool, and the romantic environment. Our breakfasts... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights recently and we found this to easily be the best accommodation on our trip to Brasil. John, the owner, the perfect host and made us feel at home from the moment we were greeted at the front door (was nice to hear a familiar(ish) North East (ish) accent. The place is... More

We booked this Pousada because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. The experience far exceeded our expectations, which were high. From start to finish everything was perfect. John greeted us like long lost friends after a nightmare car journey from Rio. We were shown around our bungalow and it didn't take long to feel at home. John recommended restaurants for us... More

Vivenda is the sort of place you come across on occasion whilst travelling. Maybe a handful of times, will you have the chance to stay in such wonderful, personable, idyllic accommodation. After an pretty horrific transfer from Rio, we arrived at the very posh front doors of Vivenda, hoping they would open in time for us to show off to... More

What a wonderful pousada! Certainly the most relaxing and idyllic place that we stayed in during our three week honeymoon in South America, and John is the perfect host. Full of local knowledge, always willing to have a chat, and taking understandable great pride in his pousada. Only three double bedrooms (two are in self-contained bungalows), each with their own...

We visited Paraty in November 2013 and had a great stay at Vivenda. The pousada is beautiful decorated and you feel home from the first moment you enter the bungalow. Everything is very well maintained and it's the most beautiful private garden we have seen in Brasil so far. Unfortunately we stayed only 3 nights. If you like good food... More
