“Stunning!”
Reviewed July 7, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Our family of four (kids 8 and 14) enjoyed a wonderful stay of four nights in this absolutely gorgeous house. We would have happily stayed longer had schedules permitted. Yara, the house manager, was most helpful in terms of advice and getting us settled; the owners were great about email communication and very understanding when we had to postpone an earlier planned stay due to a broken leg. The views are breathtaking, and the hammocks on the porch an ideal place to relax and get away from it all. We enjoyed watching the sun go down, swimming from the beach, and taking the kayak out to explore. A boat trip to see some other parts of the bay was a splurge, but worthwhile – the restaurant on Catimbau island is a unique experience! If we were to do again, we would opt to explore Paraty for a couple of days before heading out to the house, as once you are there, you really don't want to leave (and you need to arrange for a boat to pick you up). This is a very special place to spend a vacation.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed May 24, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

Fantastic holiday fantastic house fantastic location.
After spending two glorious weeks at Casa Tartaruga my only complaint was having to leave.
The house is pristine, and offers great comfort with all the fixtures and fittings being of very high standard. The large deck area enables you to dine el fresco and enjoy the beautiful ever changing sea views.
Swimming, kayaking, fishing,snorkling or just relaxing this is the perfect location.
Yara the house manager is a great asset from her good English, vast knowledge of the area, advice on restaurants, places of interest to booking a taxi boat and her genuine care in ensuring you enjoy your stay in Paraty.
Paraty itself is a lovely colonial town full of character, charm and ambience and i look forward to my next memorable holiday at Casa Tartaruga.

“Perfect private beach house getaway...”
Reviewed December 4, 2010 for a stay in November 2010

We stayed at this beautiful house in November 2010 for a week while on our honeymoon, and could have stayed for another month or more. It was truely an amazing experience. The house is beautiful, new, clean and well presented. The views from the balcony and main bedroom are simply stunning.
The house is about 10 minutes from Paraty itself, and accessed only by boat. The house manager, Yara is always on hand and available to help with any request however. From organizing a private boat to take you to the many islands and beaches around the bay of Paraty, to helping with shopping or advising local restaurants.
This place is perfect for couples looking for a private getaway, but also there is extra room and accommodation for up to 8 people as well for larger groups.
Looking back at our photo's of the trip the house truely looks spectacular, but somehow it still doesn't do it justice in capturing the natural beauty and relaxed atmosphere. I can't wait to come back to Brazil one day just to spend some more time relaxing in the hammock, or walking down to our private jetty and diving into the clear warm water below. Simply stunning!
