Tropical villa in a private condominium, with wonderful views over the beachfront. Walking distance (200m) from luxuriant, desert beach. The house comprises 5 suite bedrooms (two as separate guest units), dining room, office space and a scenic living room over the dunes and tropical landscape. Outside, a separate dining and cooking area. The overflow swimming pool meets an exhuberant garden. Meals will be prepared by the unique Dona Suzana, an exquisite cook ready to offer both local flavors and international cuisine. Internet, cable TV, bikes. Condominium facilities included, such as fitness, tennis, football pitch, sauna, jacuzzi, private movie theater.
We - Joaquim (61) and Paula (60) - fell in love with Bahia the first time we came here. It's the perfect getway from the (not so rigorous) winter in the Algarve, south of Portugal, where we (still) live and work (Joaquim as a laywer and Paula as a pharmacist). We are at our best when we come down to the house with family and friends to enjoy what only Bahia has to offer.
Joaquim Mouro purchased this villa in 2005
Breathtaking views over the beachfront that evolve as the day turns into night and day again. An outside dining and cooking area where you will enjoy Dona Suzana's fish muqueca and barbecues, as you watch the moon rise up over the dunes. Daily strolls to the beach wile crossing a tropical, bio diverse environment.
We had two wonderful weeks at Joaquims house! It is a beautiful very well kept house. It was also amazing to have Suzana and Adriana, which did everything to make our stay perfect. They even introduced us to an english speaking family a few houses away. Suzanas excellent cooking has been mentioned in many reviews and we can only agree - she is an excellent cook.
Our boys, 8, 10, 12 years loved our vacation, surf lessons almost every day, pool to play in and they where invited to play soccer at night with the other kids from the complex.
We have just spent a week in Joaquim's house in Costa do Saiupe in total bliss and relaxation. The area is outstandingly beautiful and being out of season there was no one around. I imagine it is very lively in the gated compound when the houses are occupied in high season.
Dona Susana and her daughter Adriana looked after us daily with delicious local dishes or any other culinary request we had. At least two cakes a day were baked for us to taste (and finish). Though we mainly stayed in and around the house and beach there is a lot to explore nearby in terms of nature and sport. It is worth driving out to Praia do Forte one night for the bustle of the high street.
We had saudades the moment we left.
The house of Joaquim in Praia do Forte was amazing. Correspondence and instructions were easy and timely. It was in fact, perfect. We had a very large group (10 people) and it was an ideal accommodation. Everything was kept impeccably clean; there was an incredible amount of space. The entire property was perfect for late night walks to the beach, runs throughout the complex, soccer games, it was splendid. The beach and the pool were beautiful, and the ability to open the living room brought the Brazilian outdoors to us.
I didn’t even mention the cooking of Dona Suzana. My wife and I were curious to sample all the local regional dishes of Bahia and Dona Suzana made them all (she even made pie for dessert several nights). She was a wonderful woman and made our stay that much more special.
Cant wait to go back. Thank you so much.
Acabamos de chegar de um fim de semana inesquecível na casa de S. Joaquim! Além de linda, a casa é muito chique, aconchegante, charmosa e confortável. Casa digna de revista, que nos deixou encantados. Além de tudo perfeito, ainda ganhamos de presente o carinho de Dona Suzana, Daiana e Adriana, pessoas especiais que cuidam de tudo com amor. Dona Suzana cozinha divinamente e, junto com Daiana, fez com que nos sentíssemos especiais! Voltaremos em breve, com certeza. Ah ... a casa é ainda mais linda do que nas fotos!!! Seu Joaquim e sua esposa Paula estão de parabéns!
