Casarão Amarelo is a beautiful colonial style property with its origins dating back to the Nineteenth Century. Facing east and looking out to the islands of the bay of Paraty, the house is set right on the water yet still within easy walking distance of the historical centre of Paraty. Bordered by the Jabaquera River and a steep densely forested hillside, the house, the pool and gardens offer complete privacy.
Casarão Amarelo is ideal for anyone looking to experience the authentic flavour of Brazil without compromising on creature comforts or modern conveniences. The house works equally well for groups of friends or families and the large protected garden and swimming pool lends itself to families with children of all ages.
The house is suitable for up to 8 guests.
The house was recently remodelled, and the colonial architecture is perfectly in keeping with its environment. The property sleeps up to 10 guests, with five bedrooms spread throughout separate structures on the property- a main house, guest house, and pool house.
Inside the main house you will find one master suite with a double bed, and one twin bedroom (with two wide single beds), both with ensuite bathrooms and air-conditioning. There is also a study, large kitchen, dining room, guest bathroom, and a sitting room with French doors that open onto a veranda the length of the house. On the veranda you can enjoy drinking your morning coffee at the breakfast table, relaxing in the day beds while enjoying the ocean view, or sipping cocktails during sunset.
The guesthouse has two additional bedrooms- one double bedroom and one twin, each with their own ensuite bathrooms. There is one further double bedroom (with two twin beds that can be turned into a double bed) in the pool house, which also has a kitchen and a separate sitting room opening onto an additional veranda facing the blue-tiled pool ringed by a sandstone deck.
The blue-tiled pool is 15 x 6 metres and is ringed by a sandstone tiled deck and 6 hardwood recliners. A powerfully refreshing outdoor shower nestles against the palm fronds at the edge of the pool.
Facilities at the property include high speed Wi-Fi internet throughout the property and surrounds; a ping pong table; barbecue; Bose iPod dock; beachfront with private access to a small beach.
Included in the cost of the rental are a housekeeper/cook from 8am-5pm; gardener/pool guy; an English speaking concierge and house manager. Additionally babysitters, extra maids / evening cover may be provided for extra cost and paid for locally when requested in advance.
A welcome hamper of food and drinks is included in the cost of the rental.
We can arrange private transfers to the property from Rio or Sao Paulo and Paraty has a small airport for helicopter and private plane charters. We can also organise speed-boats, crewed yachts or simple local fishing boats so that you can explore the pristine beaches and island restaurants in the Bay of Paraty.
