“We got away from it all!!!!!”
Reviewed 18 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We had a good idea about how Casa Tartaruga might be but, on arrival, it far exceeded our expectations. We were late on our arrival, no thanks to Air France, but the house manager, Yara, waited patiently for us telling us not to worry all would be fine. The beautiful house set in the jungle with a stunning sea view immediately grabbed us and made us feel completely at home. Indeed, so well equipped and furnished was the house, after 24 hours we felt as if we had been there a week. Yara was terrific. Always on hand should we need anything. We spent most, if not all of our time, on the huge deck overlooking the sea surrounded by the sounds of the cicadas and every other jungle sound one could imagine. Such a great space for being with friends, chatting, eating, drinking and relaxing. It took us a million miles away from London! Much needed! The fact that the property is spread out over three buildings meant that no-one in our party (including two friends from Rio) felt in any way claustrophobic. The space meant that people could do 'their own thing' without worrying too much about others. Everything was spotless and to a very high standard. Beds were comfortable with quality linen. The kitchen was fully equipped and of a size to allow us all to chip-in with the food prep.

It really felt like a home from home, but in the jungle! It was one of the most beautiful, relaxing places we've ever stayed in. We'll definitely be back.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 22 January 2012 for a stay in November 2011

My friend and I had the privilege of staying at this fabulous property in November 2011.

The booking was done very easily and all communication was dealt with by the owners Sue and Wendy quickly and efficiently.

The house is well appointed with all the rooms being furnished to a very high standard, the property benefits from a fully equipped modern kitchen and all rooms are bright and airy, we especially liked the way the owners had used local art work in their choice of decoration.

Leading from the lounge and bedroom there is a beautiful deck area where we enjoyed our breakfast each morning while taking in the amazing view of the bay. There is a small beach right by the house where you can swim but if you feel a little more energetic there are some very good local walks you can do to reach more beaches. The locals are very friendly and will give you directions should you need them, we found a perfect little beach where we enjoyed an amazing lunch in one of the restaurants.

Paraty is a short boat trip away from the house, Yara the friendly and helpful house manager is always on hand to arrange transfer by boat to the town, where you can enjoy all the many shops and restaurants.

We had a wonderful stay in a very special location the property was amazing we could not have asked for more, we would love to go back one day.

“Stunning!”
Reviewed 7 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Our family of four (kids 8 and 14) enjoyed a wonderful stay of four nights in this absolutely gorgeous house. We would have happily stayed longer had schedules permitted. Yara, the house manager, was most helpful in terms of advice and getting us settled; the owners were great about email communication and very understanding when we had to postpone an earlier planned stay due to a broken leg. The views are breathtaking, and the hammocks on the porch an ideal place to relax and get away from it all. We enjoyed watching the sun go down, swimming from the beach, and taking the kayak out to explore. A boat trip to see some other parts of the bay was a splurge, but worthwhile – the restaurant on Catimbau island is a unique experience! If we were to do again, we would opt to explore Paraty for a couple of days before heading out to the house, as once you are there, you really don't want to leave (and you need to arrange for a boat to pick you up). This is a very special place to spend a vacation.
