“One of my favourite guesthouses ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

As soon as we got out our room (the Main Suite) we knew we were in for a treat. I told Uira our host: It looks even better than in the pictures! - he smiled and with his sweet accent said that's what he likes to hear. And he meant it. Uira loves the Casa (house) and to make his guests feel at home.

The room was wonderful, all white with some perfect little details. The bed was enormous and it really couldn't had been any more comfortable.

We loved exploring Paraty and the restaurants were all amazing but it is quite expensive. For this reason we found Casa de Paraty's room prices to be really really reasonable - we wanted to stay longer but unfortunately the rooms were all full.

I hope to come back one day.

Room Tip: I really loved the Main Suite, is worth the extra cost.

This has to be one of my best spots in Brazil. Paraty is a great little coastal town, and this accommodation just made my trip. Incredibly reasonably priced by Brazilian standards, and was proper 5 star. Uira was a great host and recommended restaurants and things to do. Will definitely go back and recommend to friends.

There's three 'suites' in this Pousada, and Uira and his staff come in the morning to make your breakfast, help you plan the day's activities, and when you head off, clean up your room. The rest of the time, Uira's home is your home.
Casa de Paraty is in the historic old centre, which is the only place to stay. It's one block from the sea-front, and the street in front and at the side both flood when the tide comes up. Within a couple of blocks, on Paraty's amazing cobbled streets are a supermarket, many restaurants, craft shops, and plenty of evening activities. You are spoilt for choice with most restaurants featuring local musicians, or buskers out in the streets entertaining the passing parade.
Everything in Pousada Casa de Paraty is white, and Uira will arrange white Havianas for your visit.
The facilities are good, breakfast is fantastic (as long as you allow yourself the time to relax and enjoy it), and there's a sense of peace about the place.
We loved it and stayed on longer than planned before finally heading back to Rio de Janeiro.
Be aware that the transfer to and from Paraty can take between 4 and 7 hours, and will cost between 90 and 165 Real per person depending on which company you choose.
When in Paraty, go exploring, on the water, or in the jungle. It's safe, fun, and another side of Brazilian life.

Room Tip: Pay that little bit more for the upstairs suite. If there are three or more of you, you will probabl...

Believe all the glowing reviews about this wonderful pousada. Everything here is just right, exactly as it should be. The garden suite was the perfect conclusion to our South American honeymoon. The décor is unmatched, a perfect marriage of comfort and style. The house was tastefully chic, but homey and inviting, like a place you've known all your life. Service was personal without being overly intrusive. Location is perfect; we were in town during the Festival de Pinga, and Casa De Paraty put us close to the action without immersing us in it. Central but still quiet. A fresh and delicious breakfast is prepared to your specifications each morning (Uira requests your culinary preferences after booking), and sipping coffee in such idyllic surroundings just feels...right. Like I said, perfect. A beautiful pousada in a beautiful town. This was one of those transcendent traveling experiences, the kind where you become cognizant of how unforgettable and special it is WHILE it's happening. You move from mere enjoyment to AWARENESS of your own enjoyment. When you’re at Pousada Casa De Paraty, life is like that.

Our only complaint about Casa de Paraty, was that we could not stay longer. Enough said!

One word of warning however, be careful if visiting at full moon. The tide rises in the streets around the Pousada, at which point moving 30kg suitcases can be more than a little tricky. Make sure you leave plenty of time to catch your bus... We missed ours.

Room Tip: The master suite is beautiful

My grlfriend and I stayed in the guesthouse at Casa de Paraty for 2 nights in mid-March. It is located right in historic city center (the only place you'd want to stay / see in paraty), a stone's throw from the waterfront. So the location is perfect for paraty sightseeing (the colonial city + boat trips around the beautiful islands).

The inside of the pousada is immaculate, largely due to the no shoes rule! Instead, Uira (the son of the inn's owner who serves as the point of contact for any English speaking guests) gives you a pair of Havaianas to wear around the house (and to keep). The pousada has 3 rooms. The guesthouse is a huge, 2-floor space, with a bedroom (and air conditioning) upstairs and a living space/kitchen and bathroom downstairs. The garden room is small, but serviceable. And we never saw the master suite, but heard it was plenty big. The guesthouse is detached from the main property, but everything is within the outer wall of the house, so it definitely feels like 1 hotel.

There is free Wifi throughout the property. And the included breakfast each morning is wonderful.

Two words to the wise:
1. If you are bringing big (especially rolling) luggage, take a taxi from the bus station when you arrive! We tried to walk, but could no longer roll the luggage on the cobblestones of the old city. So having to carry our luggage for 10 minutes was pretty miserable. The taxi costs R$20 and is well worth it (we obviously called on for our return trip to the bus station on our way out!).

2. You won't see the pousada inn owners around much during the day. So try to ask any questions about things to do, boats to use, etc., upon arrival. That said, Uira makes himself available via cellphone (you can use the main phone of the pousada to call) if anything comes up.

Overall, this is the only place we'd stay if we ever came back to Paraty!

I can only confirm all previous reviews, with an 'exellent' rating that is.
Pousada Casa de Paraty is the best option in the historical center, and the historical center is the best location to stay in Paraty. The house is absolutely beautiful with a convenient location.
Pics on their website are how it is, no photoshop.
Uira is the perfect host and made me feel welcome even before arrival.
Mara is an absolute gem, her breakfast was exellent, more than you can eat...she was wonderfull overall !
I stayed in the suite jardim, everything was nice an very clean, amenities provided, from my favourite Brasilian brand Granada. Towels and bedlinnen crispy clean and soft.
I hope to go back soon.. Loved this place!
