Perks for the Parents

This bright, spacious beachfront property on Brazil’s third largest island has views of the ocean and is a short walk from Vila do Abraão town center, with tropical gardens and a private jetty. Inside, rooms have high ceilings and are filled with light; outside there are showers, a hammock, loungers and a barbecue. The best way to explore the pristine beaches and islands around Ilha Grande is by boat, and the hosts can arrange a variety of speed-boats, crewed yachts and converted local fishing boats for an extra fee.

Why Kids Love it

Being right on the beach, there is plenty for kids to do, from digging in the sand to boat trip and swimming. There are outdoor showers in the garden. It is a short walk to the local town and in a fantastic area for watersports, including canoeing, diving and sailing. The island itself is car-free. The house has a games table and is a great spot for a barbecue. There are 2 bedrooms in the house with 2 twin beds each, ideal for kids. A 28” boat is available to rent for boat trip and to explore nearby beaches. Babysitters can be arranged on request.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. The house is on the beach but the garden is fenced so children can’t run directly on to it. The stairs in the house are not gated. There is a balcony with limited railings and the landing at the top of the house has railings - young children will need additional supervision. Daily maid service and good local cook included (8am-5pm). Additional professional cooks, maids, babysitters, barmen and boatmen (for rented boats) may be provided for an extra cost and paid for locally when requested in advance. A pre-arrival grocery shop is included in the rates.

About the Location

The house is right on the beach at Praia do Abraão, 10 minutes’ walk from Vila do Abraão town center, on the northeast coast of Ilha Grande. This, Brazil’s third largest island, is a unique place to visit, with no roads and only footpaths and boat routes. Abraão is the island’s largest village. Ilha Grande has many beautiful hidden beaches, secluded moorings and a handful of tiny restaurants to enjoy fresh seafood feasts in splendid isolation. Private land transfers with trusted drivers and helicopter and private plane charters or round trip boat charters from the mainland can be arranged.

Accommodation Details

This 2-story house has 5 bedrooms (3 with queen beds and 2 with twin beds that can be converted into full size/double beds), all with air conditioning and fans. The master suite has a private bathroom and there are 3 additional bathrooms. There is a fully equipped kitchen, an open plan living and dining room and an upstairs living area with games table and work space. Outside the house there is a barbecue, outdoor showers and a small jetty.

Style Notes

Open and airy. The house has high ceilings, wide windows and wooden floor and shutters, and is remarkably spacious and minimalist. The kitchen is compact and simple, while the bedrooms are calming, with views of the mountain, beach and surroundings. The tiled patio area in the garden is pretty, and the hammock swaying on the terrace is attractive. We love the beach views and the modern simplicity of this tropical villa.
