A spacious and well ventilated apartment (80m²) on the 1st floor in a quite location, 300m from the beach. Suite with private bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, Wi-Fi, living room, veranda with hammocks, outdoor shower. 15 walk from the grocery store. We love cooking so please in case you wish a half pension, feel free to ask us during your reservation.

The space

Our apartment is located on the ground floor with a garden view. It has a suite with one double bed and one single bed in the living together with a small couch. A private bathroom with shower. Fully equipped kitchen with utencils including a coffee machine, sandwich maker and an electric kettle. The property has a laundry room, a barbecue grill, outdoor showers, parking space and a storage room for kitesurf equipment. The water from the property is mineral water coming from our 50m deep dwell.

The property is surrounded by tropical gardens. Located in a quiet residential area just 150m from the beach and 500m from the Kitesurf spot. The property is surrounded by a couple of restaurants, bars and Day-Use Resorts with all the facilities, inclusive pools where you can spend the day.

The property is situated at the charming village of Barra do Cunhaú, a beautiful yet still undeveloped beach coast region located about 1h30 drive from Natal International Airport by a new smoothly paved highway. Besides being a exceptional kitesurf spot, Barra do Cunhaú is an ideal destination for those in search of tranquility. A place rich in nature on land and sea, known for its breathtaking beach. Home for fisherman’s and the little commerce which evolves around tourism, Barra de Cunhaú has no fancy community amenities but you can eat some excellent seafood in some bars and local restaurants. During the day there are several services around such as kitesurfing lessons, buggy and bike rental, horseback riding, excellent fishing, wonderful sightseeing spots and transportation at the main street. Barra do Cunhaú also have a modern aquactic sports center by the main river and offers wakeboard and ski lessons. If you like nightlife, take note that you won't find it here (unless you count stargazing), however Barra do Cunhaú is located only a few minutes drive from the famous town of Pipa with its great nightlife and numerous restaurants, cafés and nightclubs.

The variety of spots, reliable and constant winds, associated with favourable tidal currents (low tide is flat and high tide where the beatiful waves takes place) makes Barra do Cunhau among the best kitesurf spots in Brazil.

Alex—and his lovely mother Fernanda—have been our favorite hosts so far on Airbnb. Because they live right below the apartments they have a very special relation with the house and the beautiful garden, giving it what we think was the closest experience we had to what Airbnb is about: offering people an experience similar to the people who live in the place you're visiting. The city is more like a village and the general infrastructure in terms of touristic options is not comparable to better known places like Pipa, but, for us, it was just the right measure of beach, sun and relaxation we were looking for. Together with Fernanda and Alex's constant tips and help figuring out the best options for groceries and places to go there was really nothing that we missed. In terms of location, it's at walking distance to the two best beach locations of Barra. To the left, at a distance of around 15-20 min, you have the mangrove that connects to the beach, with a barrack nearby that is good for having some refreshments and some snacks. To the right, at a distance of a little over 5 min, you have a nice part where the river connects to the sea and the water is very calm, with a pousada very near, where you can pay for the day use (R$35 at the time we've been there, including consumption) and use the pool, sofas and chairs, with some very friendly personnel. Both beaches are very suitable for small babies, as it was our case. Still, we prefer the drinks, food and atmosphere of the closest option with the pousada. The day use definitely pays off. As for Alex and Fernanda, we can only thank them for their super nice way of hosting and for their company at dinners and barbecues in the evening. It was really a wonderful stay and we can only recommend it.

Everything was great, we had a calm, lovely weekend. I really liked the location because the beaches are nice, adventures like buggy rent are close, you can also visit Pipa without having to stay in that chaos :) Hosts are very friendly, I highly recommend!

Alex was incredibly helpful for us throughout the entire process, answering all of our questions and helping us plan out our trip. The house was absolutely beautiful, clean, and had all of the things you'd expect from a new house. Check-in couldn't have been easier - we just knocked on the front door, and someone opened it, welcomed us in, and gave us the tour. The location is a bit remote, and we probably had a few too many people for the size of the apartment (we had 6 people, and it felt really cramped a lot of the time), but the overall experience was perfect. The beach is only 5 minutes walk away, and there are many small grocery stores right down the road. And, during the day, Pipa is just a 30 minute drive away if you use the ferry. All in all, a great stay, with an absolutely wonderful host. Thanks Alex!

El departamento es excelente, tiene absolutamente todo lo necesario para cocinar, armar el desayuno y estar súper cómodo. Tanto el balcón como el parque son ideales para desayunar, comer o pasar la tarde. Alex y Fernanda son excelentes anfitriones, nos trataron de maravillas y te orientan en todo lo necesario en cuanto a lo necesario para la estadía. Barra do Cunhaú es un lugar precioso y súper tranquilo. La ubicación de la casa está en una zona residencial, bajo un morro muy lindo que lo hace más atractivo aún. En fin, Barra se disfruta y se destaca aún más en lo de Alexander y Fernanda. Esperamos volver pronto.

Excelente lugar para descansar um pouco. Sou frequentador assíduo da casa de Alex e Fernanda, e sempre que posso, dou uma fugidinha pra passar o fim de semana lá. Tudo sempre limpo, organizado, agradável. Recomendo.
