The space

A Most Unique Experience in light forest on land, a clean local area - about 6km from Prea beach (Kite Central) and 16km from Jericoacoara - with excellent local transport options available. And amazing local food and water. A place to unwind, refresh, and be healthy.
The house is spacious open-plan, white, clean and comfy - for singles, couples, small groups to maximum 6 people to relax and explore - swim in the lagoons, breathe and enjoy. Or work online if you book it with us. Or get a buggy and go Kite or Windsurfing. Learn about plants and growing food if you like. And enjoy putting it together, as it's sensational, like the fresh water from our well.. Annnnnd RELAXINBRAZIL.

House is on plenty of land, there are various interesting fruits and vegetables and edible plants and trees in a clean and breezy almost always sunny and warm natural area, with easy connections from Fortaleza, about 6km from Prea beach, 16km from Jericoacoara, about a 20 min walk or 10 minute lift, to gorgeous fresh-water lagoons, like Lagoa Paradiso and Lagoa Azul. And some lovely local people.

A small organic home, near a small community, in an interesting, bio-diverse and practically chemical free environment, about 45 minutes drive to Jericoacoara by sand buggy or bus, and close to a lovely small colonial town, and not far from Jijoca.

We can help you with many different arrangements and local contacts to make it very easy for you.

A clean escape - no chemicals, ecological toilet, wonderful water from our well, and life-giving organic local food. As it is a local area, it is simple and affordable locally. We can plan it to suit you...options include an amazing local cook, daily cleaning, fetching supplies, fishing, boating, and the internet of course (let us know if you need this set up as it costs extra we have to put it on for one month minimum) - and great friends including the best kite-surfing instructor around - or wind-surfing (some of the best in the world) Sand buggies, area tours including Lencois Maranhenses, horse riding...and fresh organic food. Perhaps you prefer just to relax in a hammock in the breeze...and to chill, breathe, walk, swim, eat and explore.

What a great time that I had with my family at this lovely house! To start its big, which is just perfect, so if you have a big family, you will feel at home :) The people who look after the house are super friendly, they will make you feel very welcome and help you with whatever you need. It's a nice area -so breezy- just a wee bit away from the little town (Caiçara) which makes it even better to relax and enjoy! I highly recommend James house to everyone who is willing to spend some quality time near to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!!! P.S: there are the best tomatoes ever -daddy's words- . Have fun ☺️

this is the picture perfect place to come down and do a digital detox. Note that you could have broadband internet if you want, but that's a wasted opportunity to recharge your mental batteries. James's house is just fantastic, well maintained and with a beautiful garden full of organic fruits, vegetables and herbs. The awesome Lagoa Azul (one of the places with the water-hammocks that are the trademark images of Jericoacoara) is within walking distance (20 to 30 minutes). The local pick-up bus goes back and forth to Jericoacoara twice a day. James had organized everything perfectly and the people from the village were always there if we needed anything. Our 6-year old daughter made friends among the kids from the village quickly. It is just the perfect place to go if you seek peace and quiet for a week or - preferably - much more time.

James was absolutely fantastic as host, helping us out from distance and made sure everything worked out fine. He has close connection to families living around the house who are all helping out in every way possible, cleaning, washing, cooking, internet, driving etc. The house itself is nice and hidden with a nice garden where James is growing his own fruits and vegetables. It's a place where it is truly possible to get away from all stress of everyday life just relaxing and reading a book in one of the hammocks. Even though it's a little bit off the normal track it is, thanks to the local moto taxis, quite easy to get to Lagoa Paraísio, Lagoa Azul and Preá where you got kiting. I would recommend this place to anyone who would love to enjoy the best of Ceará in a relaxing way.

I feel very lucky that I was able to spend my vacation in this beautiful house. It is far away from the tourists, noise and stress, but at the same time easy and cheap to get anywhere you want in the area. The house actually looks better than in the pictures. It is new and spacious, very practical and well designed. I had a chance to live amongst a lovely local community, eat the food from the garden and drink the clearest water from the well. Also the people involved were very helpful. If I ever come back to the Northeast Region of Brazil, I will definitely stay again in this hidden gem! Highly recommended.

Fantastischer Ort zum entspannen - mit allem was man braucht für ein paar Tage Erholung . Es gibt aber es viele Möglichkeiten für Unternehmungen seis zu den Lagunen, zum Meer oder nach Jeri. Unsere Kids(3/7/9/11) genossen es auch sehr.

Trata-se de uma linda e aconchegante casa em um pequeno sítio, rodeada por vegetação nativa, muito próximo da comunidade de Caiçara, perto da Lagoa Azul e Lagoa do Paraíso. As pessoas que tomam conta da casa (o caseiro Avelar e seu filho Gerlândio) são muito prestativos e podem ajudá-lo a resolver problemas com transporte, alimentação, informações turísticas etc. A cozinha é bem equipada e as camas são confortáveis. A Vila de Jericoacoara e a praia do Preá podem ser acessadas a partir de Caiçara. É uma estadia diferente, em meio à natureza e ótima para quem deseja relaxar.
