Beautiful Florianopolis town-home in a private gated community located just across from one of the most beautiful & popular beaches in Florianopolis, a beach called Praia Mole.
This recently remodeled home is American-owned and equipped with all the luxuries of an American home with satellite TV, high-speed DSL wireless Internet and California Vonage phone lines (unlimited free calling to the USA). Beautiful wood floors, Marble stairs, Granite and marble counter tops and Ceiling fans.
The master bedroom has Private Jacuzzi, his and her sinks, walk in closet & King size bed, vaulted Ceiling, TV, DVD & Satellite with US channels Reading loft and balcony.
This townhouse even comes with an available night-life tour guide and day guide (an optional service). Florianopolis is popular for having some of the best nightlife in South America but you need to know where to go and how to do it, something you don't want to waste a week figuring out for yourself.
Florianopolis Brazil : Florianopolis Brazil is one of the most beautiful and safest cities in the country and is where most Brazilians and other neighboring countries go to vacation (not Rio de Janeiro, as many would believe). Florianopolis (called Floripa for short) is famous for it's abundant beautiful women and white sandy beaches pumping with some of the best surf in the world. Many world travelers claim that, with all things considered, it is the best place in the world and have even settled there full time or simply purchased vacation homes.
Floripa: Florianopolis Brazil
Florianopolis (called Floripa for short) is the capital of Santa Catarina (a state in south Brazil). Floripa is a large island (about 22 miles long) with 42 different beaches. Our town home is located on the east coast of the island on a narrow strip of land (about 300 yards wide), which separates the lagoon from the ocean. With the beautiful lagoon on one side of the housing complex and the beach on the other, you are literally surrounded by water and nature. We call this area the fillet mignon of the island due to it's beautiful and convenient location, just a few minutes drive to many restaurants, bars, nightclubs, gyms, and grocery stores. Plus being just a 5-minute walk to the beach means you can bypass all of the high-season afternoon traffic (people leaving the beach), which turns the main road into a parking lot for a few hours per day, making this convenient location extremely desirable.
The owner and manager are SUPER nice and easy to communicate with. The house is clean and very nice. Very close to nice beach and beachclub. I would defenitely recommend the house . Its also close to small village where you can shop, eat, groceries etc. Only because nothing is 100% perfect, You need to know that the waterfall doesnt work and that its missing some small things to accomodate tourist : beach towell, kit for the bbq outside. But easy to get anywhere . The manager took the time to advise us of the island : what to do, where to eat and go etc.. Would recommend the sushi place that is walking distance from the house and also the 'barraco da mole' beachclub in front of the house (good service and food) .
I rented this townhouse from June 13 to June 25, 2014. I used this townhouse as my home base for the World Cup. Even though Florianopolis is very south (I was following Team USA), whenever I arrived back here, I felt refreshed and I felt like I was at home. The townhouse is very large and spacious. The soaking pool outside is not heated. I loved sitting outside at night but since it was pretty chilly, my friends and I did not use the soaking pool. The kitchen has everything you need to cook (even though I did not because the surrounding area has so many good places to eat). The dining table is nice. The TV has mostly Brazilian channels, but there are some English ones. Bathroom on main level is nice. The second floor has two spacious guestrooms with a full bath next to the guest rooms. One of the second floor guestrooms has a balcony. The master bedroom has an attached wonderful bathroom (soaking tub and shower) with double vanity and walk in closet. The master bedroom also has a balcony. Attached to the master bedroom is the loft. The loft is very open so it is not something a child should stay in. It is also not private so the master/loft sleeping arrangement needs to be considered if you are with a big family or group of friends. Once I had space in the house, I told my cousin to sleep in the newly open guestroom because he snores. Renata, the property manager, is very kind and caring. I also had a private driver, Anna, who was amazing. She picked my friends and I up from the airport and dropped us off, took us to grocery stores, told us the fun things to do around town, etc. We loved her! If you want a guide, ask for Anna. She was not too pricey for what she offered in the rides around town and guidance on what to do. The beach across from the townhouse (it is about a ten minute walk since the townhouse is located at the end of the complex..which is a good thing) is beautiful. You can walk to a sushi restaurant and a fun hostel up/down the hill near the townhouse. Boni Bar is also walking distance and is a fun location. For a night in town, you will need to take a cab. I would recommend it. There is plenty to do and to eat. I would also recommend hiking around the lagoon and taking a boat to the restaurants on the other side of the island. It was a great day when we did that. The people of Floripa are extremely nice and this is a perfect island get away. Finally, the cleaning lady was spectacular. She took her job seriously and was fantastic.
Great propertie for a stay in Florianopolis. Close to the beach and pool in the backyard to relax in private. Confortable bedrooms and amazing service when we were there. I recommend this property to everyone.
We stayed at this townhouse for 5 days/nights. It was superb. Modern, great appliances, bathrooms in great shape and everything meeting expectations. So nice to also have a little pool in the back to soak in after long days at the beach. Renata was extremely helpful and arranged all our transport needs. Praia Mole is excellent and a short walk, but so many other beaches on the island are also fabulous. Bill was great to deal with and we will definitely be back in this exact property in years to come.
The house is superb and suited the 5 of us. Spacious, clean, comfortable, the last house in this private development, with a guard at the entrance and the house manager living in the gated estate, so all you need is accessible.
We truly enjoyed the peaceful aspect of this bungalow and would recumbent it only if you rent a car to explore the island and go out/shopping as you wish.
Great townhouse. Loved the pool. private backyard. Comfortable master bedroom. Located at end of development so more private feeling however if you want to be closer to the beach its a little longer walk. Loft is perfect if you have children and want to keep them close by but staircase is a bit dangerous. The trail towards the lake is difficult to get through due to undergrowth. Townhouse was clean and well-maintained. The beach is beautiful and surf was fair while we were there. We also rented another townhouse nearby because our family was too large for one. There were 4 American family owned townhouses there but the manager speaks only Portuguese.
