I stayed in Casa Vermelha Guesthouse with my fiancé for the Eastern holiday in March, 2016.
We were initially skeptical about the idea of staying at someone elses house instead of a regular hotel, mainly because we highly value our privacy. However, the attractive pictures in the website and the very reasonable price made us decide for the Casa Vermelha Guesthouse.
That couldn’t have gone better!
First, we arrived around 1:00 AM coming from Sao Paulo and the owners were still awake waiting for us. Despite the time, they made us feel very welcome and showed us to our amazing well-decorated, comfortable and spacious bedroom.
In the following morning, we had our first experience with the breathtaking view of our room.
The entire house was built on a slope with a view of the ocean and the continent far away, but without the disrupting sight of the large ships that cross the channel in the southern part of Ilhabela.
We then had the pleasure of having breakfast in the porch, enjoying the view of the several humming birds that come to drink water in the house. The breakfast was cooked specially for us based on our requests and at the time we wanted. In the occasion, we also had the opportunity to talk and know more about the owners of the Guesthouse, which also helped us with suggestions of places to see and visit in Ilhabela.
Despite our initial concern with our privacy, they were amazingly kind and provided us with the feeling of being home.A few other highlights of our experience:- Excellent price - a 5 star accommodation with the price of an average hotel- Direct access to the sea through a private deck and a small beach- Lush gardens- High quality bedding and toiletries- 15 minutes away from Ilhabela downtown by car – peaceful and calm neighborhood
Thanks Adriana and Paulo for your very warm reception and kindness.
We hope to see you again soon!
