About the property

Exclusive 3 bedroom Villa in secluded tropical garden on the Main Beach

Your first impressions will be the incredible view - palm trees, white sand and of course the turquoise sea stretching off to the distant horizon. Just cross over a sandy path and the beautiful Praia da Pipa beach is right in front of you.

SERENA is set in tropical gardens with your own palm trees laden with coconuts. Relax on the terrace, snooze in a hammock, enjoy lunch on the shady veranda, sunbathe on the secluded lawn, or gaze out to sea from the panorama deck. Experience the sense of tranquility and serenity, as you hear the birds singing, the sound of the waves breaking on the distant coral reef and the branches of the palm trees rustling in the refreshing breeze.

The sun rises early and as you look out to sea, it appears far off to the right, slowly passing over the garden, often ending in a beautiful sunset behind the copper colored cliffs across the bay. All that is missing is your own private beach, but some days the beach can be so quiet, that it feels like your own.

Férias em uma praia tropical: Serena e a escolha perfeita para férias em uma praia tropical; a vista da frente desta casa transfere você ao verdadeiro significado da palavra “serena”. Ela e localizada numa área muito popular pelos resorts da Praia da Pipa, logo ao sul do equador no nordeste da costa brasileira.

As primeiras impressões serão de uma vista incrível da praia – coqueiros, a areia branquinha e o mar a se deitar sob a costa junto ao horizonte. Da casa e só atravessar a rua e a praia esta bem ali ao seu desfrute.

Great house by the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Serena for two weeks. The house is amazing with all the facilities and confort that you expect from a holiday home. Perfect location- in front of the beach and just a few minutes walk to bars and restaurants. I'd a great time at Pipa and will definitely go back !

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation in Pipa, which has so much character and a unique atmosphere – so many restaurants and cafes, we were spoilt for choice.

Serena was exactly what we expected, and as described, right in front of the beach, and not far from the centre of Pipa.

The house felt spacious and was well equipped. For us the best part was the garden, where there so many colourful tropical plants plus two big decks where you could sit and enjoy the views.

Best Arrangement in Pipa

  • 5 of 5

This was my second trip to Casa Serena.

It was as I expected wonderful. Personally, I couldn’t ask for more. Casa Serena is well appointed house in the best location in town. At high tide the front gate is 7 meters from the water. A casual restaurant with a wonderful staff, drinks, food and free WiFi is within 30 meters. (Don’t worry, it never gets too loud or rowdy day or night).

The cobble street is a dead end so a car may pass every fifteen or twenty minutes in front of the house. The mood is very relaxed, safe, and friendly. The house is clean with ample room for a large family or three couples.

Paul the manager of the property is really cool. He’ll check in every day or so (Pipa is so small you can,t help seeing him in town) but leaves you alone.

If you surf or kiteboard there are several beaches and point breaks within a thirty minute walk down the beach. You can paddle out to the best point break from your front gate! If you kiteboard, there is a beach with waves and side-shore wind ten minutes walking time. There are two really good flat water lagoons thirty minutes by bus.

You really don’t even need a car if you make this trip. There are buses almost hourly from Natal, and there is a local bus to take you to many beaches and lagoons in the vicinity.

Don’t read any more……..Just go there!

PS Oh yeah, my sixteen year old daughter was so stoked with the place she said “I coming back when I turn 18 and do this “right” with my friends”.

Owner's Response: Thank you, we are so glad you came back for a second visit, and that you had a wonderful vacation. We started renting Serena less than two years ago and have already had 3 repeat bookings. As you say, Serena is the perfect base for surfing and kiteboarding. You certainly do not need a car to enjoy Pipa, and we can arrange transfers from the airport. We look forward to seeing you for your third visit!

Casa Serena was EXACTLY what we hoped for...a serene, relaxing, wonderful place to stay. The house is located on the most beautiful stretch of beach in Pipa, literally a few steps away. The lovely garden is shaded by tropical foliage and palms. The house itself is large, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The furnishings are simple, but very nice, and the bedding was wonderful. The kitchen is complete, with coffee maker, cooking utensils, dishes, mugs, etc. We made breakfast every day and sat on the front terrace, overlooking the beach. It was sheer perfection. Each room has a built in safe to store valuables. A sitting room on the upper floor is very cosy, and has a beautiful deck overlooking the beach. I loved this house! Since it is near the end of a dead-end street, we had MINIMAL traffic...meaning one or two cars a day passed in front of the house! Casa Serena is also just steps (meaning 20 or so) away from one of the best places in Pipa to relax and enjoy a drink and/or a meal...the Pipa Beach Club.

I highly recommend this house for families or friends traveling together. We looked at a lot of hotel rooms in Pipa (none of which were great), and are just so grateful we found Casa Serena.

Owner's Response: Thank you, we are also pleased that you found Serena, and that it was exactly what you hoped for. We want ‘Serena’ to live up to its name, and it sounds like it did for you! The garden is well established now and is a tropical paradise with coconut palms, papaya trees, abundant bougainvillea, and spectacular hibiscus flowers. Serena is perfect for a large family or a group of friends. Come back soon!

Location....Location. ..Location

  • 5 of 5

We visited Serena in October 09 when the renovation was in full swing.

It is a lovely beach house with fantastic views of beach and sea.We enjoyed walking along the beach to the next bay to see the dolphins playing.The village has everything you need interesting shops and good resturants only 5 minute walk ( up hill ).We had a very relaxing holiday ,the hammocks in the garden are wonderful! The sunsets were amazing with a glass of wine on the terrace what could be better.

We have been to many places around the world but the location of Serena beats them all.We would love to go back now the renovations are are complete ..I am sure we will soon.

Owner's Response: Well the renovation is certainly complete now, and you need to come back and see the difference it has made! The location is perfect, particularly for enjoying the sunset or just watching the world go by. Serena has excellent views, but the garden is designed in such a way that you also have privacy, should you want it.

If you are going to Pipa and want privacy, but only steps away from all the action this is the place for you! We couldn't have asked for a better location. The ocean was right infront of us, it was so convinient to just be able to go out the door and be on the beach especially with small children. Also convinient is the fact that Serena is just two steps from Pipa Beach Club, which served delicious food and offered a great relaxed admosphere. What can I say about the views.....INCREDIBLE, watching the sun go down from the deck or patio was a sight for soar eyes, I have never seen anything like it. Bring a lot of bug repelent (my kids got lots of bug bites), and sun block (it was very expensive at the local pharmacy). I loved Serena and would go back in a heart beat.

Owner's Response: What more can we say…. The privacy of your own house in secluded tropical gardens, with the beach directly in front of you. The sunsets really can be spectacular, particularly when viewed from Serena’s upstairs panorama deck. Good tip about the sun block – not many shops sell it in Pipa, as the locals tend to just relax in the shade!

Praia da Pipa
Car: not necessary

Pipa is one of the most well-known holiday destinations in Brazil, but it is not a big resort, nor is it commercialized, with the locals still outnumbering the holidaymakers. Pipa’s two main attractions are the beach (by day) and the main street (by night). If you want to spend the day on the beach you won’t have to move far, as there is always someone nearby selling cold drinks, coconut juice or ice creams, and if you fancy some local seafood, why not try one of the many beach front cafes, or visit the Pipa Beach Club. Pipa is just south of the equator, so the sun sets early and in the balmy tropical evening everyone migrates up the hill to the main street - Avenida Baia dos Golfinhos. Here you will find a combination of bars, cafes, restaurants, boutiques and souvenir shops. Stroll up and down, soaking up the atmosphere or watch the world go by from an outside bar, before choosing from one of the restaurants offering a range of cuisines.
