House Rules

I expect you treat my house as if it were yours. Neither noise nor loud music are allowed after 10 PM. The terrain is about 4000 square meters, so you'll have a lot of privacy, but please respect the neighboors. It's a matter of good sense!

It was a wonderful discovering in the middle of our trip to Ilha Bela. We were in North litoral of São Paulo enjoying the beautiful beaches and spots when we decided to stay a little longer and we found among the Airbnb offers the Alessandra's house in Sertão da Barra do Una, near the beaches of Barra do Una and Juqueí. Fortunately, her house was free for that night and we spent a marvellous evening there and all following morning! It's a paradise with all that nature, river, mountains and good beaches so near. There is a good main house but we preferred the cottage near the river with an gorgeous opened area. Alessandra is a careful host and sent us all the info about her house and surround there. When we come back to Brazil we will definitely plan to stay there more time to enjoy all the wild nature, tracks, waterfalls and crystalline pools.

The surroundings of the house are beautiful and the place is very quiet and in the middle of nature. We went with 6 friends to spend the week after christmas but we weren't lucky. We found the kitchen dirty and there was no water. The water problem was fixed by one of the guys that works in the compound but the next day it was broken again. Also we found the beds moldy and smelly. In the night of new years, we couldn't open the door because the lock was old and with problems so in the end we had to take out the entire door to get in. It was raining a lot that week, and in the living room there was water entering through the ceiling on the bed of one of us. The first day we tried to reach Alessandra (who doesn't live near the place) but because the place is really remote, and telephones don't work properly, we couldn't reach her. Afterwards, Alessandra apologized and said that if we had told about the problems right away, she would have tried to solve them. We asked for a refund but instead she offered us a free weekend in the house. Since several of us live far away, this isn't the best solution for us.

Response from Alessandra:
Unfortunately, it rained a lot during the week Marjolein and her friends spent there. The strong wind took some of the tiles out of the place, so it produced a leak in the roof. If Marjolein had called me, I could have sent a professional to fix the problems, instead of the guy who works there in the compound. The cell phones don’t work very well there indeed, but they could have called me from the condo reception. There is also a landline phone in the main room of my house that could have been used. Before their stay, I answered quickly all the messages Marjolein sent to me and was in touch the entire time they spent there, if they have called. The next day I was told of the problems, they were all solved. The family that spent a week in my house right after Marjolein sent me this message when they left: “Everything worked fine and we had a great time there... We were still presented with a heavy rain yesterday that finish to wash our souls!”. All of the others comments here testify that people usually have a great experience in my house and, unfortunately, yours were the exception. As I told you, I am truly sorry that you had such problems and my offer to you spend a free weekend there is still on the table. Hope you to accept it.

My family and I stayed at Alessandra's home in Barra do Una over a holiday weekend in April 2015. We are expats living in São Paulo for 3-5 years and are looking to enjoy everything that Brasil has to offer! The reservation process went smoothly, Alessandra answered all of our questions quickly and clearly. She cleaned and prepared the home for our arrival the weekend before. We arrived at the home without any problems. The community and roads are well-maintained, and we were even escorted to Alessandra's home by the porteiro. The home was beautiful!! The grounds are immaculately cared for, and the home is clean, spacious, comfortable, and beautiful!! Tranquil, relaxing, well-equipped, comfortable, clean - I could go on and on :-) We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Alessandra's beautiful home, and will absolutely be back for another stay! If you are looking to stay in a private home in the Mata Atlantica with close beach and river access, I highly recommend Alessandra's home. You will not be disappointed!

Alessandra offers a charming house, or rather houses, one with a bedroom, mezzanine (for extra sleeping space), living room and two bathrooms, the other with a room and bathroom upstairs and a kitchen, barbecue and large table downstairs. What I found most stunning however was the setting of wild mata atlantica and mountains. The house is literally surrounded by plants and the neighbouring homes are virtually invisible. There is also a small river at the end of the garden for refreshing swims. The house is approximately 15 minutes from the beach (Barra do Una) by car and access is via dirt road only, but it is a small price to pay for the peace and quiet hosts will find here. Alessandra was very helpful with all the details. I recommend bringing a powerful insect repellant.

We stayed at Alessanda's place for 4 nights with our two Kids and we had a really great time. The place is located in the middle of nature which the Kids enjoyed a lot - and us too. Great place to come to, Close to the beaches.
