I stayed in Vivenda Paraty in July 2014 and I could not speak more highly of the establishment. John is such a gracious host. He is a wealth of information of the surrounding area and so helpful with restaurant recommendations, things to do, directions, etc. The breakfast makes you feel like you are in a movie (or heaven!) because it...

John was very prompt in his correspondence and any questions we had right from start. We had a perfect two night stay complimented by exceptional service and warmth. Vivenda is impeccably decorated, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was lavish with freshly made juices both days, scrambled eggs, breads, cheeses, meats, fresh fruit, coffee/tea. It was a pleasure to start out... More

It is a little paradise out there! Bungalows, swimming pool, garden, breakfast, the atmosphere... Everything is like it suppossed to be. If you ever have the chance: GO. If we ever go back to Brasil and Paraty we will visit again.

Vivenda is a tranquil paradise with its gorgeous pool and high standard interior design. On stepping thru the gate, I felt instantly at peace in the beautiful and well-kept garden. My husband and I stayed last month and John gave us a tremendous welcome. We are British expats living in Rio and drove down to Paraty for the weekend. I... More

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
