Private beach house Casa Cairuçu takes its name from its spectacular location. Overlooking the calm, protected waters of Paraty Bay, the villa sits inside the Cairuçu Environmental Protection Area, surrounded by pristine beaches, swathes of rainforest and traditional fishing communities. No roads or cars disturb the breathtaking views; just passing fishing boats and from time to time turtles and dolphins. Guests can only get here by boat - a 20 minute ride from charming colonial Paraty - so the adventure begins when you are collected from the town pier by the boatman. Luis will whisk you across the aquamarine water to the house where your guide introduces guests to his wife, lovely housekeeper Adriana, they’ll be on-call to help you get the best experience of the spectacular Green Coast.
