The pool house was great. It's exactly as pictured, and provides ample privacy at night. The house is beautiful and has a working BBQ. Breakfast was sufficient and includes coffee and fresh fruit. Michael is really friendly and knows a ton about Paraty and the surrounding parks, having lived there for many years. I would love to return and take a kayak trip with his company! Also, parking was easily available outside of the house.

Michael is a great guy, with a great house in a great town. I thoroughly recommend staying with him if you are in Paraty. I would also look into doing some hiking or kayaking with him if you have the time.

Michael is a kind, extremely helpful and funny host! We had the most amazing stay with him in Paraty, so amazing we stayed extra days !! The house is really beautiful, properly grand designsy, crazy spacious, lovely kitchen and breakfast. The pool, hammock, barbecue, outside space is just spot on, perfect place for relaxing, eating, drinking and playing with the lovely dogs. Michael is a font of knowledge about the surrounding area with some really great tips of how to get off the beaten track (although not hard to do in a deserted paradise). Would recommend it to my parents, friends, strangers in the street, really couldn't recommend it for enough! If you're thinking about visiting Paraty, do it!! And do it here!!

It was an absolute pleasure staying with Michael. His house is beautifully decorated, warm and welcoming with two gorgeous dogs, and the room itself was perfect for a dip in the pool at the end of a hot day. The house is a little far out from the centre of Paraty (aprox 25 min walk) but bikes were provided which was made the journey quick and convenient. Michael - was the perfect host offering us advice or where to go and the best spots to try. We even had breakfast provided which was a great surprise. Highly recommend.

Everything was perfect, clean and lovely! michael was vey nice and gave us tips on what to do in the area... the busses to trindade go directly at the end of the road but it was quite far to walk to the old city center (exactly how he describes it) try to make use of the mototaxis and make sure to bring enough against mosquitos ;)

Mickael is a very nice guy. I picked me up at the bus station when I arrived from SP. He gave me some good advices to enjoy my days in Parati. I met at his home a young english couple very nice and we shared a very good breakfast every morning. I like move by bike, and so Mickael let me one of his bikes and I felt very free to move in Parati. The house is not in the old city center, but not far. By bike, it's only 10 minutes, easy, quite and secure way. The room is comfortable enough and the bathroom also. The house is really nice and comfortable. So, if you are looking for good advices to visit beaches, to walk around and go to the beaches, if you are looking for a quite place, and a very nice guy, you have to try to stay there !

We stayed here for Easter. The photos looked promising, and all expectations were at least fulfilled. The house is very modern and spacious, people we met there were friendly and interesting to talk with, the pool was awesome, breakfast nice. And Michael was a great host; his advice about where to go in Paraty made our trip unforgettable. Would definitely stay there again!

Originally from Northern Ireland I lived in a few different places around the world before settling in Paraty where I've been living for over 10 years now. I run an Adventure Travel Company here, Paraty Explorer, and have been all over the surrounding area...on foot, by kayak and Stand Up Paddle board. I can give you the very best tips for Paraty, from bars and restaurants to secluded sandy beaches and waterfalls and pools in the Rainforest. Come and see for yourself why I decided to live in Paraty!
