Guestbook comments from the owner

"Myself & 7 of my friends stayed at the Casa Tartaruga for 5 nights during our World Cup Adventure in Brasil. We are the adventurous type and we loved the fact that the house was off the grid.



Yara was an exceptional host and helped us coordinate travel to and from the house on a regular basis as needed. She also helped set up a driver to and from Rio and also a great, affordable day trip (snorkeling, booze cruise, etc) on a boat with a very friendly and fun crew.



The house itself was nothing short of amazing and we throughly enjoyed our stay. I hope that we will have a chance to visit again in the future. Our time in Paraty and at Casa Tartaruga was huge highlight of our very memorable trip."

A place in paradise

  • 5 of 5
This is a very special place to stay. It is located in its own subtropical gardens looking out over the sea across dozens of green, wooded islands and bays dotted with secluded sandy beaches, towards Paraty, with no roads, houses or human disturbance except the occasional boat sailing past. It is totally secluded, but access by boat is easy, using the private jetty. The house is amazing: architect eco friendly design, self sufficient in pure water and electricity. The furnishings and layout are stylish and beautiful. The bedrooms are superb (all ensuite) and sleeps 8 in comfort. The house has a Brasilian manager located in Paraty who speaks perfect English and efficiently handles transport, food if required, and can answer every kind of query. There is a wealth of things to do, incl. swimming and kyaking or paddle boarding right off the jetty, or from lovely quiet sandy beaches on the doorstep. Fishing, walking, birdwatching and boat trips to little island restaurants are a delight. We did all these things during our stay. The water is perfectly clean and warm, and suitable for children (supervised of course). Best of all we watched the changing light over the sea from the sundeck or balcony, looking west across the sea towards the wild mountains in the distance. This is really a very special place to visit!

A BEAUTIFUL HOME IN A TRANQUIL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Casa Tartaruga is equipped to a high standard both inside and out - providing a wide range of facilities to meet every need.

Whilst accessible only by boat, the casa is not remote - with a restaurant next door, and kayaks provided to facilitate trips out to the neighbouring bay (complete with beach bar).

Those that have a passion for wildlife will not be disappointed - with monkeys, turtles, lizards, fish and the Brazilian Tanager all spotted during our visit (for those of you that are not twitchers, this is a rare blood red bird).

The service provided by Yara, in resort, is second to none. We were so grateful for this following our delayed arrival into the resort from Sao Paulo, following a motorway closure. We genuinely thought that we would not be able to travel across to the house, by boat, until the morning. Yara arranged for the water taxi to wait for us - and we travelled across the water by moonlight - a real highlight for us (although not for the boat captain I am sure).

Another highlight was preparing and cooking, for dinner, the fish we caught from the pontoon earlier in the day. Wow.

In summary, Casa Tartaruga is a lovely property in a beautiful location.

an amazing place in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5
Casa Tartaruga was all we hoped it would be. Beautifully furnished and well-equipped , its location was perfect for our family. We only had time for 3 nights there so just stayed at the house instead of going across to Paraty. We had everything we needed but Yara kept in touch and sent across by boat some fish for a BBQ on our last day. It was delivered by a passing boatman straight to our door (pontoon) . The views were amazing with boats of all types passing across the bay--just like a moving picture ! We would love to go back one day !

Serene Five Star Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Quietly nestled on this beautiful peninsula, Casa Tartaruga offers a serene five star paradise, yet with a wonderful ‘home from home’ feel. From the moment we arrived, we fell in love with this very special place which gave us the chance to relax, revive and dream to our heart’s content. The luxurious accommodation coupled with breath taking views were a treat for the soul, while basking and dining al fresco on the two decks was pure joy. A sincere thank you to the owners and staff for meticulously creating such magnificent and unique eco-friendly retreat - we would return in a heartbeat.

Wonderful house, beautiful view

We had a short, but great stay in this wonderful house and enjoyed both the location and the friendly staff. The location is very quite, the view is beautiful and the house is even better at the photos - even the kitchen is well equipped.

Paradise in Paraty!

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from a fabulous week at Casa Tartaruga and loved every minute of our stay! The location is simply amazing, just a short boat trip from Paraty so is both exclusive and private but also packed with activities for the more active traveler. The house itself offers a perfect blend of being a 'home from home' at the same time as being modern and stylish. The house is very well equipped and the owners have obviously gone to great lengths to ensure that every guests needs are catered for. The property and grounds are immaculately maintained and Yara (the house manager) couldn't have been more helpful, from arranging boat transfers to Paraty, pre arranging shopping, recommending/booking restaurants, excursions, even helping us with our terrible Portuguese! A stay at Casa Tartaruga come with our highest recommendation- definitely do a day on one of the converted private fishing boats, while you soak up the sun they'll take you to a host of white sandy beaches, swimming with the turtles and stop off for a delicious lunch. A second must is sitting on the balcony at the house watching the sun set, whilst trying out some home made caipirinha- heaven!

Car: not necessary

The house is located in extensive private gardens which lead down to Baré Beach (home to a small, friendly community) and overlooks the spectacular Bay of Paraty. Swim or fish directly off the private dock or from the sheltered beach, walk along coastal paths or hire a boat to idyllic beaches and sample superb regional seafood or just relax on the decks and watch the world go by. The charming Portuguese colonial town of Paraty, a short boat ride away, offers excellent facilities for shopping, restaurants and further excursions to islands, fantastic beaches, and activities such as fishing, diving and trekking. The town hosts numerous festivals, including Jazz, Food, and Film, the best known being the International Literary Festival (FLIP), and of course the annual Carnival. Paraty itself lies between Sao Paulo (330km) and Rio de Janeiro (236 km) on the BR 101 with good public and private transport links between both (between 4 and 6 hour journey). There is also a small airport.
