Overview

Porto das Dunas House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, garden, garage, close to big city and football stadium

The house and the condominium is perfect for families. It is a complete secure area. Children love staying there. The house has 4 bedrooms ( 8 beds) and 4 bathrooms. Upstairs there is a big veranda with doors leading to two of the bedrooms. Downstairs you'll find the terrace and our small garden with the palmtree our grandson once planted. In the garden you will find a barbecue and an out-door shower. It's a good place for resting in a hammock, if you like. The garage has room for 2 cars, and you will also find a washing-room there with a washing machine.

There are 20 houses in the condominium. Since many of them belong to families living in Fortaleza, it will seldom (maybe never) be many people present in the condo at the same time. That's why we have never experienced it as a problem having to share the swimming-pool and the sports field in the condo. The swimming-pool and area is also quite big.

The house is situated 4-500 metres from the most wonderful beaches. The beaches are perfect for kiting. IT is 500 metres to The Beach Park, the biggest Aquatic Park in South America.

The distance to Fortaleza (2,5 mill. inhabitants) is about 20 km and the same to the big football stadium, Castelao.

I am sure you will enjoy staying in our house.

Garden: In the small garden outside, there is a shower and a big barbecue. You will find a dining-table for 8-10 people there, nice chairs for relaxing and places to put up a hammock.

Our grandson planted a coconut some years ago, so a cocopalm is growing fast together with some other plants.

We are happy if our rentors take care of our small garden while staying in our house, watering our plants etc.:-)

There is a small sportsfield in the condominium that you can use whenever you want.

Beautiful and comfy around the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at this beautifully decorated and fully equiped home. It is not only nearly a walking distance to the beach but also near restaurants and the popular Beach Park. We did not experience any difficulties in the reservation process and the gated community staff was very helpful. We felt very safe and the neighborhhod was very friendly.The house was comfortable and had everything we needed to make our vacation affordable and yet enjoyable. My expectations were exceeded. I would definitely recommend this rental to my friends and family. As a matter of fact we are already planning and looking forward to a second time at the house.

Thanks to Fam. Grondahl for those beautyful Days!

  • 5 of 5

One of my best memories of a 6 weeks south america trip (ending in a world cup win :) ) are the Days we had in Fortaleza. Familiy Grondahl did everything to make us a pleaseant stay in her beautyful house. With the pool next to the terrasse and the fantastic palm tree lined beach plus the huge Aquapark nearby its perfect for relaxing and have fun.

Big kitchen, nice living room, clean bath rooms, own garage - nothing was missing. Because of the security its even the most safe and clean accomodation in brazil we have been.

I totally recommend this place.

Great holiday appartment near sea

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a wonderful holiday-week in this very nice holiday apartment near city of Fortaleza. The location near sea and beautiful, peaceful beach was absolutely wonderful - only about 5 min. walk from the house. February was obviously not the high holiday season, so we enjoyed sometimes of being the only ones on the beach. The beach was so beautiful, safe and tidy and ideal place for jogging early in the mornings.

The house was big enough even for two families (we were altogether 5 persons) and very well-equipped. Surroundings were clean and the swimmingpool also big enough. There were some smaller shops and restaurants in walking distance, but renting a car gave a good possibility to visit the city of Fortaleza and also many other interesting places.

Altogether very safe, tidy and recommended place for families to spent a holiday in sun and warm (even at night time + 18 C).

Many, warm thanks to the owner, who could not be more friendly and helpfull with arrangements.

Perfect vacation in a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a family with kids or more then one family. The place is very beautiful. The pool is really big and the condominium is very silent, very, very clean and quite nice. The area very safe, the neighbors are very friendly and helpfull. We have bought the food in bigger supermarkets and eated a selfmade breakfast, sometimes lunch and dinner/barbeque with excellend fish and beaf.

The beach park and the next supermarket are very close. to shop food and non food articles. We had rent a car for 10 days and we've been visited 3times Fortaleza city. The distance to Moro Branco, Paracuru and Pecèm beach need about 1 hour. The beaches are very nice.

The next restaurant on the hill are very close withhin walking distance.

We are two families with a 20month young girl - She enjoyed the vaccation in that house. We can absolutly recommend this property. The landlady are very very friendly, heartly and obliging. The support for the house, the transport between airport and the house is very well. If you have any question you can contact the supporter in fortaleza.

Conclusion: We are a travel family - we'he been visited a lot of countrys all over the world. This beach holiday in the leisure residence was one of the most relaxing and comfortable holiday.

Thank you so much to the landlady.We wish you all the best with the next rentors.

Great Place to stay away from big city

  • 5 of 5

This is a rare find for my family for our Xmas vacation every year. The house owned by Mrs. Solfrid is excellent. Upon arrival, the house needed some extra cleaning because of the dusty roads in the Porto das Dunas. Other than that the rest is as described. The closeness to Latin America´s largest water part, Beach Park, is a walking distance of about 5 minutes. You can´t ask for anything closer other than staying at the resort. Although it´s far from city of Fortaleza, renting a car and getting used to the local traffic gets some used to.

I would recommend this house to others seeking some peace and quiet time and, of course, sunshine and warm weather!

Will definetely come back to this property in my next Xmas.

Car: recommended

The house is situated about 20 km from the city centre of Fortaleza, in Ceara, Brazil.

The area is called Porto Das Dunas, a beautiful area with sand dunes and the most wonderful beaches,

There is about 15 -20 minutes by car to the International airport and to the football-stadium.

From the house there are 4-500 metres to the beach, kilometres wide, and to 'The Beach Park, the biggest AquaPark in

South America. It's useful to have a car when staying at Porto Das Dunas. Then you can easily reach lots of other beautiful beaches in Ceara.

There are car-rentals about 200 metres away from the house. Just outside the gate there is a restaurant, and you can find some other restaurant at walking distance. A small supermarket and a hair-dresser's are about 300 metres away.
