Comfy chalets, a great central location for exploring the island, and most of all extremely helpful and friendly staff. No problem for us to have a takeaway and watch a film at the Pousada one night when we didn't feel like going out.

Very good value as well - couldn't ask for more!

Our stay in Caravela Pousada was wonderful. Unfortunately in the week we were staying here, the weather wasn't that good, but our beautiful apartment, the beautiful surroundings and especially the very good care by the owner (Thiago) made it very worthwhile. Caravela is very convenient located on walking distance from the ferry and our apartment was very clean and cosy and especially the veranda with hammock was great. Furthermore there is a beautiful garden, a nice swimming pool and a beautiful lounge which more looks like a cosy living room Thiago did everything possible to make our stay as special and fulfilling as possible. He really did let us feel at home and we certainly would consider going back some time.

If you´re looking for a beautiful and quiet place to stay close to the big city of Sao Paolo you should go to the island of Ilhabela.
We stayed there at Caravela Pousada at the end of our travel and had the feeling of beeing at home.
The accomodation is located in short walking distance to the ferry and has a very comfortable lobby, almost like a living room. The very nice and openminded brothers that runs the place made our stay relaxing and memorable. And: They make the best drinks on the island! Try the Maracuja-Caipirinha. The rooms are in good shape and big enough.
We will come back here.
