Placed directly on the Abraao's beach some 200 meters from where Easytransfer and other carries arrives, it is perfect place to stay on Ilha Grande

We had one of the pousades nice rooms with sea view on the first floor. The pousada have about 8 rooms, where about half have sea view. The room had a private balcony with a hammock, which was lovely :-)

Breakfast was served on the terrace in front of the house. Together with the lovely atmosphere and sea view, Gerard and his staff served at nice Brasilian breakfast with freshly pressed orange juice and lots of fresh fruit which made a good start of the day.

We booked the stay directly by email, which worked well.

All in all a very nice stay at a small well placed pousada, with a nice and very flexible staff, that helped to us have nice stay at Ilha Grande. Thanks for that :-)

Room Tip: Get a room with sea view.

We loved staying here, the rooms are clean and the owner is friendly. The breakfast is the tastiest breakfast we have had, they make you fresh juice and cook fresh eggs to your liking. We would recommend paying a bit extra for the sea view. Can't wait to come back and stay here again! Great value for what you get:)

Very nice pousada right on the beach. The owner is very nice and made us feel welcome. Not a big fan of Ilha Grande after our visit, but highly recommend staying here. Very good breakfast and comfortable rooms

Gerard was a wonderful host, he gave us great tips on Ilha Grande and even knows an affordable taxi service that can come pick you up in Rio down to the boat, and vice versa. His b&b has a lot of character, is quiet and is conveniently located right on the beach, steps away from the main town. Breakfast in the yard was delicious and restaurants nearby and on the beach offer great seafood, and more. We had a 3 person bedroom (1 double + 1 single bed) which included a balcony with a hammock and a seaview on the second floor. The single bed was in a separate area so there was plenty of room. Overall we had a wonderful stay and didn't want to leave. Highly recommend!!!

Breakfast was wonderful - the selection and the view across the beach & the sea! We even saw a hummingbird one day. The Island is beautiful. The pousada itself was spot on, it's owner & staff were friendly and very helpful (including local advice).
The pousada is slightly further along the beach away from the busier part of the main town - which is a good thing in many ways (it's a little quieter) - but be prepared to wander down the beach at night (which is safe) rather than round the back street. Worth it for the beach view in the morning though!
