Pousada do Atoba is situated in Santinho, which is in the north of the Island of Santa Catarina, Florianopolis, close to Praia Ingleses, where you will find lots of restaurants and supermarkets. A smaller supermarket and a coffeshop are nearby. To the beach, it is a short walk (5 – 7 min) and a lot of other beaches are easily accessible by bus.
To downtown Florianopolis there is either the local bus R$ 2,50 (sometimes crowded and you have to changes buses) or the ejecutivo, for R$ 5,- (airconditioned, direct and much faster). Other beaches can be reached by local buses. We rented a car, which makes it easier to explore the island.
I definitely cannot agree with one comment here which had problems with rates and reservations: We had booked a long time ago direct at the website of the Pousada and although prices had gone up meanwhile, Alina gave us the price of the previous season, which was cheaper. By the way: I do not think it is very “professional” (who claims the author of the comments mentioned to be) to vote for a place in all categories a 0, although she/he/it never stayed there, but only had problems with a hostelbroker.
The Pousada itself is about 200m uphill from the main road and the whole property is very well maintained. We had a Chalet which can accommodate up to 4 persons. It has a separate bedroom with A/C and a combined living room with kitchen and a table to eat. In front of the entrance you will find a hammock. There is a pool on the property, we personally prefer to swim in the ocean. There is free WIFI on the whole property and one PC with internet for those who do not carry their notebook with them.
As mentioned before, the hosts are outstanding friendly and helpful and try to do everything to make your stay more enjoyable. Aline speaks perfect English and Spanish, her sister too and also her mother speaks some English!
The breakfast is wonderful, from fresh fruits, homemade cakes and pastries to cold cuts. We will definitely come again!
