Villa Ilha Grande is an incredible 7 bedroom beach house offering both a stunning beach front location on Ilha Grande and an exceptionally high standard of accommodation with the infrastructure of a private hotel. The property extends along a private white sand beach of over 400 metres lined with palm and almond trees and is ring-fenced at the back by hills covered in thick Atlantic rainforest.
At Villa Ilha Grande there are five suites in the main house accessed off the veranda and just a couple of steps from the beach, inside and outside dining areas, a sitting room with a large flat screen television, DVD and CD players and a swimming pool. Two further bedrooms are housed in two stand alone villas in the garden which each have their own sitting rooms and Ofuro (a Japanese hot-tub). All rooms are air-conditioned and have ceiling fans, IPod docks, LCD screen cable televisions with DVD and CD players. Wireless internet is available throughout the property.
Each bedroom has a hammock strung outside of it and hammocks are also found in several areas along the beach and under the coconut palms. On the beach you will also find sun loungers and beach towels.
A separate villa houses a gym, sauna, games area with table tennis and full size snooker tables. There is also a floodlit football pitch, a barbeque and freshwater swimming pool. Two speedboats and a traditional sailing boat are available with the villa and this allows guests to explore the secluded beaches of Ilha Grande or to water ski at leisure from the property’s private jetty.
Included in the cost is a staff of 12 who are on hand to look after guests which includes 2 maids, 2 waiters / barmen, 2 kitchen assistants, a cook and an English speaking concierge. 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.
Arrival transfers from the mainland are included and we can arrange a land transfer from Rio or Sao Paulo airports or a helicopter transfer to the island.
We can also arrange day boats and yacht charters as a boat is a wonderful way to explore Ilha Grande and its many hidden beaches. For sailors we have a beautiful classic schooner which can be hired for the day.
The best months to visit are from March to October when there is less rain. The busiest months are December, January and February when it is hotter but with more rain. October and November can see prolonged rainfall.
