“Fab month at Ben's Place!”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Couldn't speak more highly of this place. It is a little home away from home which is always what you want when traveling, especially in Brazil. We stayed 3 weeks and came back for another 2 because we couldn't stay away. We haven't found anywhere quite like it in the 2 months we've travelled Brazil. Big rooms and comfy beds, with well equipped kitchen, and a nice big pool to jump into every morning is all perfect. Plus the many fun nights we had all drinking round the pool or frying up on the BBQ.
Kirsty and Stana are absolute gems and would always go above and beyond to make sure your stay was enjoyable.
Always good vibes at Ben's Place- couldn't thank you guys enough.

I am a million years late with this review but I have to write one for Ben's Place as it was truly one of the best places I have ever stayed at while travelling. My boyfriend and I were on the road in Brazil for two months and found ourselves falling in love with this place. We had an amazing spacious apartment in a lovely and quiet part of Itacare (only a five to ten minute walk from all the action) and we certainly had the best hosts you could ask for. Kirsty, Stanen and Damien (the lovely peeps who run the place) always go above and beyond to make sure you have a pleasant stay, and they're great fun to hang out with. Not only is the building itself like an amazing lost boys play house with hammocks outside most of the rooms, a rooftop game room, a full length pool and a poolside bar - but everyone we met staying there was so much fun to hang out with too.

We'd go off on our own enjoying the surf or the town center but we always enjoyed coming back in the evening and hanging out for a drink with everyone at Ben's Place. Kirsty and Stanen even went out of their way to make a pizza night happen for us on our last night there, which was brilliant! They have a wood fired oven so this was indeed a treat and we really appreciated how lovely this was of them, this is a late thank you but better late than never to the best hosts and most special place we found in all of Brazil. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone going to Itacare!!

This is a great place to stay in Itacare! Unlike most of the accommodations in Itacare, Ben's Place is located in one of the local neighborhoods of the town. Its just a short ten minute walk or a quick moto-taxi away from the downtown/tourist area of the town. The place is beautiful, there has been so much love put into making it a great place to stay, they even have a pool. I've been staying here for just over a month now and I love it.
