Your Home Away From Home

Casa Cairuçu takes its name from its spectacular location. A few steps from the calm, protected waters of Paraty Bay, the 3 bedroom house is located inside the Environmental Protection Area (APA) of Cairuçu surrounded by pristine beaches, uninterrupted swathes of rainforest and traditional fishing communities. There are no roads or cars to disturb the views, just forest paths and passing fishing boats.

Kingfishers and herons enjoy the advantage from the tree shading the terrace, hummingbirds flit between flowers and right in front are shoals of colourful fish, turtles and sometimes dolphins.

The house has a modern, clean touch and catches the best of the sea views. It is perfect for families or groups of friends, honeymooners looking for something special and unusual, water sport lovers, for those that want to explore or who just want to relax. Paraty is only 15-20 minutes away, and in the other direction are the region’s most beautiful beaches.


We’re proud to be a low energy house – ceiling fans and passive air design instead of air conditioning, LED lights, hot water solar heated – and work to minimise environmental impact.

Boat transfers with our man Luis

Our trusted friend and experienced boatman Luis knows every nook and cranny of this beautiful area. The boat transfer in and out from the house is included in the price, and every day choose to explore the Bay or head to Paraty.

Personal local guide Rodrigo

An English speaking guide accompanies you to the house on Day 1 and is available by phone during your stay. A local phone is also provided free of charge.

Our lovely house keeper Adriana

Our housekeeper is at the house 8 am to 1 pm (except Sundays and bank holidays). She prepares your breakfast, clean and makes the beds (& cook delicious homemade meals).

Exclusive for a romantic getaway

Casa Cairucu is a wonderful secluded retreat for romantic getaways and honeymoons. Stay in the master bedroom – we close the other 2 bedrooms – and the whole house is yours, as well as our lovely housekeeper that cleans and cooks and our boatman to whisk you to the incredible secluded beaches and coves of the Bay of Paraty. Views to die for, a fully equipped house and complete privacy.

Solar heated water

Sustainability and trying to take care of our planet is very important for us so we have solar powered water heaters (and are trying to reconnect our photovoltaic panels).


We compost food waste, separate recycling, use biodegradable soaps, shampoo and rubbish bags, & source organic produce wherever possible.

Water from a spring

We have a fresh water spring within reaching distance of the house. We ask that water use – as a precious limited resource – be respected and we strongly discourage single use plastics.

Pristine & Secluded Beaches

Paraty Bay is awash with opportunities for water-based fun, ranging from energetic activities such as kayaking, SUP and diving to totally chilled out sunbathing and swimming sessions. Its pristine and secluded beaches make it a perfect spot to just sit back and relax without the crowds.

Perfect for families or groups

The house is perfect for families or groups looking to explore the area.  Loads of space for swimming, walks, kayaking and a family or group BBQ makes it the perfect place to relax and spend quality time together.

3 double bedrooms

There are 3 double (/twin) en suite rooms that face the sea (ideally 6 – 8 people total), all with views and sea breeze as standard.

All en suite and ceiling fans

Rooms feature high beamed ceilings with fans, white walls, solid wood floors, pieces of Brazilian art and local handicrafts. Open storage, shelves and hanging space. Comfortable beds and matresses, cotton sheets.
