A truly beautiful place away from the everyday noise. Little house surrounded by rainforest, waterfall, flowers, sculptures and banana trees. Just 20m away is a secluded little waterfall/river where you have the luxury to do spa-like skinny dipping. Total privacy. The owner Barbara is a truly lovely person. She's a potter originally from Germany and has beautifully designed the little colourful French-Brazilian chic house, you can also see her own works. Barbara will make you feel like you're visiting a family - gives you all the privacy you need, but is always there to help and make sure you are enjoying your time in Ilhabela. As the place is about 20minutes walk from center, be prepared and book a motor if you don't feel like walking much. If you want peace, nature and lots of beauty around you - this is the place.

Much more than a place to stay in Ilhabela... Cocaia Caban is paradise itself. We stayed for 2 nights with my girlfriend because we found the price very reasonable and we liked the pictures in Airbnb, but when we got there we couldn't believe it. Barbara got in touch with us many times before our arrival to make sure we could find the place (really easy by taxi) and that we would have all the assistance needed. She couldn't be there at our arrival but there were signals on the road for us and information about things to do in Ilhabela. The caban is incredibly beautiful, very nice decoration with art pieces here and there, books you can read when it rains (one could say rain is bad during vacations but you actually enjoy it a lot at the caban in the forest of Ilhabela) and all the things you could need. We literally brought nothing with us and we thought it would be a problem but the caban has everything and Barbara and her family set it beautifuly. We couldn't meet her in person due to our short stay but we feel we were at all times in the hands of a great host that enjoys sharing with others the beauty of nature in Ilhabela with respect and love. We really hope we can go back in the future.

We had an amazing time there can't wait to go back :), if you are looking for a place to stay in Ilhabela this is the right one, there's a waterfall running 20 meters from the cabana and you hear it this is a magic place in Earth I have traveled the world and honestly this place will remain in my heart, thanks Barbara for the hospitality and all the help and the daily smile, we will definitely comeback one day ;). Cheers, Helio & Giovanna

My wife and I have already stayed a few times at Barbara's. For us, there's simply no other place like this in Ilhabela - it's not only the cute room, and how beautiful and clean everything is - it's Barbara's and Zé's amazing energy and how comfortable and chill they make us feel. When going as a couple to Ilhabela, this is definitely a fenomenal place to stay at. It's surrounded by beautiful rustic nature, has 24-hour waterfall music, and is simply a no-frills place to be at. The fact that it's not smack in the middle of the center is a blessing for us (-: Thank you once more for the amazing time Barbara! Cheers, Bee & Oli

Barbara was an amazing host, and her cottage was beautifully decorated, clean, and in a great location. She offered to pick us up and drop us off at the ferry, which made traveling a lot easier. Although the cottage is somewhat remote, it's actually not too long of a walk to the town of Ilhabela and some very nice restaurants and bars. When we stayed there, we left the windows and doors open, and it was so relaxing to hear the waterfall and sounds of nature at night.
