A cozy house amidst green lush surroundings, two blocks away from Lázaro beach.
A spacious ambiance for conviviality and leisure.
Ana's parents built the house from scratch in 1988 as a place to celebrate life by bringing family and friends together.

Much of the house decoration consists of refurbished pieces they bought in a shipwreck junk-ward by one of the main seaports in Brazil, in Paranaguá, in the state of Paraná.
More recently we added our own touch with pieces we brought from our trips to India and Nepal.
We try to be as environmentally mindful as possible and that is one of the reasons we do not have any air conditioning system, as it demands a lot of energy to work. Every room has a ceiling fan, besides other fans around the house, among them a bigger more powerful one.
We also did not care for any fancy entertainment system (with huge screens or surrounding stereo). Since this place ambiance provides us the opportunity to disconnect ourselves a little bit from the big city censorial overdose, we like to use our time to enjoy the beach and the presence of our friends and family. If we have to stay inside because of the rain (Ubatuba is a rainy town) we either have fun together talking, playing board games, spending time in the kitchen, or relaxing by ourselves, listening to some good music or savoring a nice book.
There is barbecue space on the outside, with a nice barbecue pit.
Disponible para huéspedes
Beach chairs and beach umbrellas are kept in a little room by the back of the house that we use as storage. There is also a set of beach racket-ball and two bodyboards.
All that is at your disposal for your own convenience.
There are two Stand Up Paddling (SUP) boards which are not available to be used. Thing is they need some minor repairs and, until then, using them may cause more damage. There are SUP rentals around the beach.
Atención a los huéspedes
We will be available by phone. There is a possibility that we will personally welcome you at the house, but we can not guarantee that.
We will be more than happy to help you out by phone if you happen to need some kind of assistance. If we don't answer the phone right away, we will get back as soon as possible.
We let you know if it so happens that we will not at all be available throughout part of your stay.
Otros aspectos destacables
- The dispose of garbage is made through a hole on the extreme left of the kitchen sink covered by a heavy metal lid. Access the bin through a small brown door on the outside wall of the house.
- The dishwasher keyboard is very sensitive. Either while the machine is working or is turned off, keep it locked all the time by pressing, at the same time, the two buttons linked by the little padlock sign above them, until you listen a little beep. If you don't do that you may accidentally either turn the machine on or off.
- There is a huge two stage brown clay filter on top of the kitchen stand. That will provide you with good quality drinking water throughout your stay. To fill it you have to switch the water valve on the wall by the filter itself, near the small hose linked to the filter lid.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO SUPPLY TOO MUCH WATER TO THE UPPER STAGE, OR YOU RISK FLOODING THE LOWER STAGE AND SPILLING WATER ALL OVER.
There is no way to measure the water level. Try to supply the filter with as much water you've consumed. Use your common sense.
Please, do not smoke in the inside.
Once arriving from the beach, try to rinse as much sand out of your legs and feet as possible. Use the little "feet shower" by the left-hand side entryway and the outside freshwater shower beside the kitchen window.
Try to recycle aluminum, cardboard and glass containers. There is a recycling station near the entrance of the condo.
Let us know if the house is in need of any emergency maintenance. Do not try to fix something without our express authorization. We have the contacts of a group of professionals that we trust and that are ready to take action once we get in touch with them. If such a service is not a result of any kind of carelessness on your part the check is on us.
Durante el período del 28 de Diciembre de 2017 - 30 de Diciembre de 2017 la estancia mínima es de 10 noches.
We like to travel. Walk and hike around, contemplating nature and enjoying new discoveries.
Ana loves cooking. Exploring new flavors through recipes she invents by herself is one of her favorite hobbies. Luis like sports, to watch and to practice, specially basketball, but nowadays his knees tell him to take it easy. He mostly swims and rides the bike. Activities that we both like to enjoy together as much as possible.
We are specially connected by our spirituality, dedicating ourselves to self-knowledge as much as we can in all aspects of our lives. We've been finding out that the openness of a more ecumenical attitude allows us to best enjoy from the full depth of human wisdom. Yoga has served as a very meaningful path to us.
We try our best to be conscious about the environment. Relating it to the things we consume and our day to day attitudes.
Ana is a an environmental lawyer by training, holding a PhD in public heath and environmental sciences. As of late she has started to work with and study ecogastronomy,
Luis has been working as a criminal lawyer since graduating from law school, recently has been dedicating himself to the field of Peace and Conflict studies, research and practice wise.
Much of our professional activities are dedicated to volunteer work. We feel grateful for the rewarding experiences we gather through those efforts of ours.
We are now parents of a newborn boy called João. What a delightfully challenging journey it has been. We feel blessed by his presence. We both feel the most important people in the world whenever he smiles to us.
Cultural diversity is something that fascinates us. We have came to realize that one of the most fruitful and meaningful ways to enjoy from the richness of human diversity is through hospitality, either as a guest or as a host.
