Fully Staffed Beachfront Villa in Kitesurfing Heaven

Bedrooms 5
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

5-bedroom beachfront villa w/ private pool and staff included. Ideal for groups!

Arrive to the blue gates of A Vida é Um Carnaval and step out of your taxi into the warm, salty air. Enjoy the fresh breeze that sweeps over the ocean, rustling the coconut palm leaves and cooling the tropical heat.

From the moment of your arrival, Nina and the team will be on hand to take care of all the details. From picking up groceries then transforming them into gorgeous fruit salads and seafood curries, to careful housekeeping, coconut cakes, and home made caipirinhas - and that's just Nina's help.

Huelton, your caseiro during your stay, is always there when you need him to run an errand, wash down your sticky kite kit, or light up the bbq.

The spacious and beachfront villa comfortably sleeps up to 10 adults and a baby - ideal for kitesurfing groups and families. Those with little ones in tow will find paradise here. Trusted babysitters who take care of our own kids, a large shallow area in the swimming pool, a treasure chest of toys and trampoline mean one thing: entertained, happy children. And as we all know, consequentially relaxed and very happy parents...

For those looking to lounge poolside with a good book in hand, A Vida é um Carnaval offers just that: smoothies, sunshine and large loungers where you can close your eyes or even steal a few glances at the surfers catching waves in front of the front gate.

And for the folk who grow restless poolside, there are a wide range of activities from which you can find bursts of adrenalin and endorphins.

Go for a buggy ride, zipping down the beach and up the dunes, bumping and tearing your way through coconut trees and past groups of startled donkeys. Pause for a few moments at the top of the dunes to gaze at the moon emerging from the over the ocean, whilst the sun retreats behind the sand. Or if blending in with nature suits you better, do the same on horse back.

What else you ask? Kitesurfing, whether in the open waters on the tranquil lagoon just 10 minutes away by buggy, surfing right in front of the house, and to sooth the sore muscles after so much excitement, an in-house yoga session followed by a massage with the waves as your soundtrack.

Taiba is the real Northeastern Brail. If manicured resorts and shopping malls are what you're after, you won't find that in Taíba. Instead, you'll come across local joints where the fishermen swig beer and sway to the music of reggae bands, families lounging roadside and speakers larger than the car boots in which they sit, playing thumping beats late into the night.

The villa's privileged location on the beachfront places you in the midst of the beachy buzz; find couples catching rays just metres away and surf fans perching on the front garden gate, watching their friends glide across the rolling waves.

Life here is simple, raw and yet invigorating. Brazil always welcomes its guests with open arms and in Taíba, with open hearts as well. Prepare to fall in love <3

About Amanda Kendzior

As the property manager, I don't live on site but am here to answer any questions about the house and village as well as take care of reservations and logistics. It's a pleasure to manage such a fantastic house in which I've spent time with my own family.

The owners who are avid kite surfers fell in love with the house and surrounding area years ago. They also live off-site but travel in from around the world with their families and kite surf friends to make the most of the house and its ideal location.

Why Amanda Kendzior chose Taiba

You couldn't ask for anything more, whether a sports fan or just in need of some quiet time. Having Nina's help on site means you can forget about any 'to do' list and simply enjoy the moment, whether it's kite surfing, swimming in the pool, lounging in the hammocks, or horse riding along the beach. The whole family will have something to do here and they are welcomed with open arms.

What makes this villa unique

Everything you need is already included - a night guard, house keeping, garden help, and speedy communications from your property manager.

The house can host large groups comfortable as it has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms

It's an incredible location - you are right on a beautiful beach

Really nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 12 wonderful days in this beautiful place.

The house and the garden are well kept and clean and offers enough space and comfort for up to 10 people.

Nina, the house-keeper, and Antonio, the gardener, do a great job.

The beach is just perfect (crowed only for new years eve and new year). We also enjoyed the swimming pool a lot.

The only thing to complain about a bit is the morning traffic at the back of the house - not too bad, but more than expected.

In fact, it's a place we would like to recommend to our friends.

A week of tranquility!

  • 4 of 5

We booked this house for a week as two familys with our kids, a teenager and three little children. We enjoyed a week of tranquility and lots of sun and water. The location of the house is good, directly on the sea. The swimming pool is a great treasure for the kids and for the parents, there are enough places to relax, as the deckchairs, the hammocks an the 2 balinese-design exterior beds. The interior of the house ist very rustic, with natural stone. What we missed was air conditioning in the bedrooms and curtains for a little privacy.

Nina was always there to maintain the house and preparing the breakfast and even cook for us. There are a few nice restaurants in the neighborhood. This little city is a real quiet place, with a few basic grocery stores.

We made a buggy tour with David and where very satisfied. He also came to pick us up at the airport. (contact provided by the house owner)

Pasamos una semana inolvidable en familia. La casa es preciosa, acogedora, bien mantenida y con una salida y vista al mar espectacular. La casa esta equipa con todo lo necesario para pasar una perfecta estadía.

Nina, la señora que cuida la casa está siempre bien predispuesta a cooperar. Cocina muy bien y arregla la casa.

La piscina es hermosa, muy buena para los dias ventosos. Los camastros con vista al mar los vamos a extrañar mucho!

Todavía no nos fuimos y ya queremos volver!

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect holiday for our family. I went for long walks on the beautiful beach and read my books in the hammocks in the charming garden. My husband was kite surfing all day with all the other kite surfers. In the evening there were many small cute delicious restaurants to chose between, and we were well services of by the maid in the house who was also happy to help taking care of my baby.

Una vita in vacanza

  • 5 of 5

Scriviamo questo messaggio con molta saudades di questa meravigliosa vacanza, la casa e gli esterni molto confortevoli, eravamo coccolati da Nina e Huelton dalla mattina alla sera! Posto fighissimo, ideali per fare surf o come abbiamo fatto noi, lunghissime camminate, giri in buggy sulle chilometriche spiaggie e sulle dune, Huelton è una guida perfetta! Ha anche organizzato una visita a una fattoria a vedere la produzione della farina di manioca e tanti altri giri e poi al nostro rientro affaticati, c’era Nina sempre pronta con l’acqua di cocco fresca e il pranzo a tavola e che pranzi!!! Cosa chiedere di più?!? Relax, sole, mare, gente molto educata e accogliente! Una vacanza da sogno!
