The SpaceThe cabin is a simple structure made of pine and varnished inside with a colored varnish which provides a warm woody finish which echos and enhances the rural atmosphere outside. All windows are screened offering comfort from most insect invaders. The wood-burning stove is a traditional cooking and house-warming instrument of the region and provides for long lazy mornings, toasty evenings... and lovely silent refuge on rainy days. The beds have sturdy mattresses made of firm foam and covered in cotton. Bed clothes, blankets and towels can be rented upon request and paid for upon arrival. We do not provide these items as a standard amenity as our local guests seem to prefer to bring their own from home. Food and hygienic items should be purchased before arrival, as running back and forth into town (about 17 km away) can get expensive. There is an outdoor tank for hand-washing clothes and a clothes line provided for drying. Guest AccessThe cabin is all yours for the rental period. The other housing facilities on the property are private and should be treated as neighborhood dwellings where residents' privacy and comfort should be respected at all times. Bungalow guests have easy access to the forest trails, the reservoir and the local dirt roads, which lead to: 1)Morro do Canal (Channel Hill) for “easy to medium difficulty” climbs and treks and snack bar with lovely fried locally-raised or reservoir fish; 2) Araça-I Indian Reservation for cultural contact with a newly formed community of the Guaraní nation (about 13 years old) in the process of adaptation to it’s new location and the difficulties inherent in the mixing of prior members from numerous communities in varying degrees of decline; 3)Carvalho (Oak Tree), which is a region managed by the state water company and generally closed to the public. It is opened to the pubic one weekend a month. Besides more trails and beautiful views of the mountain range barrier between us and the coast, there are old rock pools and holding tanks, which have supplied drinking water to the city of Curitiba for over a hundred years. Boaters and fishermen/women should bring their own canoes, kayaks, inflatable boats, oars, pump equipment, fishing gear, bait and life vests. Only non-motorized boating is allowed on the reservoir. As the reservoir is not supported by life guard staff, swimming is not permitted. All reservoir activities are unsupervised and ones decision to navigate, fish or swim in its waters is ones sole responsibility. When you request a reservation period for this property, you are confirming your acceptance of total responsibility for any and all activities in which you choose to involve yourself and your fellow occupants (whether friends, spouses, relatives or acquaintances) during your rental period AND, you all relinquish any rights to legal process or litigation against the owner, employees and other residents except through the conciliatory process provided by AIRBNB. Interaction with GuestsThere is a caretaker on hand during the week until Saturday noon. There is another property exactly in front of this property on the other side of the road where emergency information can be obtained if the caretaker or myself are not present. There are G3 cellular phone signals on the property which allow for moderately reliable internet access as well as phone service. As the property is one of the last properties on the electric lines, electric service can go out for small periods of time. Wind is our greatest enemy where electric lines are involved. The NeighborhoodAccess to the oldest reservoir in the area, which supplies about 50% of the water to Curitiba, PR, can be obtained by asking the caretaker to introduce you to the caretaker on the property in front of ours. Fishing and non-motored boating is allowed at your own risk at the other reservoir about 6 km back down the road. Down the road about 1 km is an indigenous community of about 60 Guarani transplants who have been in the community for the last 13 years and are struggling to adapt to their new location and the dynamic of being moved from various groups into this one unit. About a half hour's walk away, there is a climb to the top of Morro do Canal (Channel Hill) which is considered a moderately easy climb. From the top you look down to Paranaguá Bay. There is a snack place at the base which offers good fried fish snacks and other local delights. There are trails on our property and the water department opens their forest reserve one weekend a month for visitors. There are more trails there, as well as, small waterfalls and old rock pools where the original water supplied to Curitiba (the capital of Paraná state) is located. Getting AroundThere are no public transportation options near the property. Cabs can be called from the nearby town and foods items can be delivered to the area. Neighbors can be solicited (well before necessary) for rides into town, when needed. Other Things to NoteThis property is in a preservation area and no plant, animal or mineral specimens can be legally taken off the property. People interested in contributing to the knowledge base of the local communities are welcome to come and try to get involved in this kind of activity.
