We spent 2 weeks in Brazil doing Rio, Iguassu, Salvador and Pipa. We had our last 5 days at Serena and after all the travelling it was the ideal place to relax. Terrific location, villa ideal, and gardens a treat with humming birds and butterflies regular visitors. The beach location and views are outstanding. We had no security issues, the villa was very secure and we walked around Pipa day and night without and concerns. Would recommend Serena to anyone looking to relax in a stunning beach location.

Thank you – Serena really does have the best beachfront location in Pipa, with the two Panorama decks offering the opportunity to appreciate the spectacular views. Meanwhile the secluded tropical garden continues to attract a profusion of birds and butterflies.

“Best location in town”

Beautiful home in the best location in town. The shore is only a few away and the beaches are fantastic. We hired a cook/light housekeeper for $30 per day to prepare breakfast and lunch for us. We highly recommend doing this to take full advantage of your vacation. We hired Jenny who works at Agua na Boca, a local restaurant, and she was absolutely wonderful.
The house itself could use some updating like, a new refrigerator, fumigation, replace moldy toilet seats, but overall a great house to hang out in.

Our first visit was in Serena's early days, two weeks in November 2009, and we were impressed by all we were able to do and see. The return visit gave Pipa a different atmosphere, but even more luxury, internally and in the garden. In May 2013, the beach Praia de Pipa was noticably more quiet, less beach activity, with more families and less younger sportspeople. Our November visit had coincided with the Frescobal beach tennis championships, with constant practice and competition. Entertainment and interest just over the wall on the beach, and an active young crowd to watch from our deck loungers while sipping our Caiparinias , now even closer with the new deck and bars. This May, an almost deserted beach with a scattering of children and parents lounging and staying cool in the rock-pools, or filling the tables of beach cafes. Evenings in the main street filled with strolling visiters, and a multitude of good inexpensive restaurants to choose from, not to mention numerous yummy ice cream vendors or bars.
Beach walks in both directions provide differing swimming and snorkel opportunities, and again, a choice of food and drink, apart from the local fishing boat interest around Sebastian Rock. Multicoloured cliffs are attractive and unusual, with miles of deserted sand and and rocky pool beaches. The climate was perfect on both visits, as was the accommodation, and the much improved and established garden. The only choice... in or out of season ? We were met at the airport both times, efficient and friendly.

Thank you –You are one of several guests who have returned for a second visit, and so much has been added and improved since 2009, especially in the garden. One of the attractions of the beach in Pipa is that it changes and moves during the year, according to the tides and currents, but the view always remains spectacular! May and June are certainly good months to come for peace and tranquillity, although it can sometimes rain at this time, it is not uncommon to have a whole week of sunshine.
We look forward to welcome you again….

We stayed a Serena during our stay in Pipa. Serena is just in front of the beach and is an amazing place.
We got robbed on our last night there, and I have the feeling, that we were observed since it happened during our dinner. They emptied all 4 safes, pretty easy, and took all our cash, and iphone, psp, macbook and camera with all holidays pictures!!. Obviously they knew exactly how to get in, since the beach front from the house is not at all secure. Well I would not recommend a stay in Serena.

Thank you for your comments – We were sad and disappointed to hear that you had such a bad experience on the last night of your holiday. We do take safety and security seriously and following a review of all aspects of security around the property, we have made some changes, including extra security features.
We hope that, despite this experience, you still have some happy memories of the rest of your time in Pipa.

“Excellent location and amazing beach villa!”

We stayed at Serena Pipa whilst on our honeymoon in Brazil. The house is enormous and has all one needs whilst on holiday. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a washing machine which we found useful since we were travelling for 7 weeks around Brazil. The location is just perfect right on the beach and a short walk to the town center and other beaches. I was initially very concerned with the security since we read a lot about this in Brazil but both the villa and Pipa were very safe and we walked around even during the night without any problems. Another positive aspect of this villa is that next door there is Pipa beach club which has excellent food, wifi and a large t v where football games can be watched. I would definitely go back there since it was a highlight during our honeymoon.

Thank you – It is wonderful to hear that your time at Serena was one of the highlights of your 7 weeks travelling around Brazil. Pipa really is a unique and special holiday destination, which continues to attract people from all around the world.
Serena is one of the few houses situated directly on the beach – if you want a secluded villa on the beach, within walking distance of the centre of Pipa, then Serena has to be your choice.

Thank you – Yes, Serena is very spacious, with 3 good size bedrooms, and a large living room plus the upstairs lounge. The garden is proving to be extremely popular, with an abundance of tropical trees and plants, including your own coconuts and bananas. The lower lawn gives an area of total privacy, or you can sit on the terrace or the deck and admire the view out to sea.

“I want to go back!!”

I LOVE Casa Serena. It’s perfect for a group or for honeymooners. It is beautiful, private and close to everything. I highly recommend it!

Layout: The 3 bedrooms (2 with private baths) are spread out nicely so you don’t feel to close to each other. There are many places to hang out—the upper deck, the dining area with barbeque, the lower patio off one of the bedrooms, and the green garden but I always ended up on the main terrace drinking coffee and watching the ocean just across the street. The street is a dead end with VERY little traffic. There is even a gated alcove for your car but you don’t really need a car because the location is great.

Location: A non-noisy beach club (order their fruit salad) is one house away and has WIFI. The main shopping areas (terrific tropical fruit ice cream shop, both high end and funky stores, bakeries, restaurants) are a short walk away. There are no high rises and no litter in the town.

I want to go back!

Thank you – you are welcome back any time, Serena awaits you!
Several guests have indeed returned, after being enchanted by Serena and its spectacular location.
Many people have commented on the fact that there are so many different places to ‘hang out’ depending on your mood and the time of day. The terrace does seem to be the focal point, as it is a great spot to sit and enjoy the ocean view.
We hope to see you again soon!
