The SpaceOur two tree houses are non-smoking. They are naturally sited in the forest, 4 metres above the ground, and are equipped with safety deposit boxes.
The tree houses are made entirely out of wood, except for the WC: doors, windows with adjustable wooden slats instead of glass, walls, floor, shower and washbasin. The roofs are covered with Piaçava (palm leaves). Our guests live in an airy environment, which offers additional comfort and well-being in the rain forest environment.
From the lobby you go up 3 steps to reach the bedroom which has a double bed and large wardrobe, a mosquito net and ceiling fan.
What would a »lazy evening« on holiday be without TV? We have also thought of that. The bedrooms are equipped with flat screen TVs. These receive national and international TV programs.
The tree houses are built on stilts and are simple wooden houses but they provide all the comfort you would expect on holiday in an upmarket 3-star cottage.
From each of the tree houses, you go up an exterior staircase to reach a terrace with a table and two chairs. From here, the entrance to the house leads into a small entrance hall and a kitchenette. Here there is a coffee filter machine and a small refrigerator. Directly beside it is a bathroom with shower, toilet and washbasin.
In the tree house you're living fairly high above the ground. The best thing about a holiday in one of the tree houses is having access from the bedroom to the balcony with a hammock. At this height you almost become part of nature. Up here is where the monkeys and birds of the region live - and with a little luck guests will come eye-to-eye with them.
Each tree house can accommodate two people. The accommodation is suitable for a romantic holiday for couples or a comfortable holiday for solo travellers. Guest AccessWe offer extensive facilities for leisure activities.
Maybe you prefer an active holiday? Explore the area on a bicycle from our bike rental facility. Our guests can enjoy relaxing afterwards or at any time in our Massage Cabana, a hut covered with Piaçava – palm leaves.
Near the beach a fresh water swimming pool invites for swimming fun. The pool area also has a children's pool. If you prefer swimming in the sea, there is direct access to the beach. There, pergolas provide pleasant shade. For relaxing comfortably, can use the hammocks, deck chairs and seating throughout the entire site.
Two oversized games - chess and nine men's morris - provide hours of fun for the whole family. In the middle in the forest, up to ten people can use two barbecue areas for get-togethers.
Children are welcome guests. We offer plenty of space and opportunities for a child-friendly, adventure environment.
The playgrounds are integrated into the natural environment in such a way that guests in need of relaxation will not be disturbed.
An adventure playground is located near the beach. It is designed with a pirate ship, fishing village and small islands. In the forest there is also a witch's house waiting to be discovered by curious children and equally adventurous guests.
The lovingly-designed playground equipment was built to international safety regulations. The climbing frames are made from pressure-treated eucalyptus and guarantee your children will have risk-free fun. Interaction with GuestsWe speak German, English, Dutch, and Portuguese. The NeighborhoodThe houses are located in the »APA Santo Antonio« nature reserve. The property, surrounded by the natural environment of the rainforest, lies right beside the Santo André beach. This was justifiably classified by »Veja« magazine as one of the ten most beautiful and exotic beaches in Brazil.
The water at the »Praia de Santo André« (also: »Praia de Tartarugas« – Turtle Beach) is calm thanks to an offshore reef. This makes it ideal for bathing, and also for families with children. Thus far, this insider's tip in the region remains undiscovered by mass tourism.
Up until now, only sustainable tourism has been developed in the region. With this in mind, we have taken the appropriate measures. We heat our water using only solar energy. UV light is used instead of chlorine for treating the swimming pool and water purification.
The tranquil village has thus far remained a pleasant and quiet fishing village with little more than 800 inhabitants. From the hustle of Porto Seguro with all its beach bars you arrive from Santa Cruz Cabrália directly on the ferry over the Rio João de Tiba.
In recent years Santo André resort has become increasingly important. Here, upmarket ecotourism has developed with a markedly sophisticated infrastructure. For supplies during your holiday there are two small discount stores, grocery stores, boutiques, arts and crafts workshops, and over a dozen restaurants, pubs and bars in the village.
An old Brazilian legend recounts the following about Santo André. An anxious father who was afraid of thieves buried a golden statue of Saint Andrew here. Who knows - maybe the gold of this statue has lent a particular gloss to the small fishing village?
Porto Seguro was founded in 1534 and is commonly acknowledged to be the birthplace of Brazil. In Santa Cruz Cabrália, the Portuguese Pedro Álvares Cabral stepped on Brazilian soil for the first time on 22 April, 1500. Porto Seguro is therefore one of the oldest cities in Brazil.
Porto Seguro is easily accessible and is a popular tourist destination. Visitors can enjoy a wonderful view of the coast from the historical upper town,. Anyone who likes hustle and bustle will discover vibrant life in the lower town. Shopping streets offer attractive shopping options during the daytime. Round off the evening with the best Bahian and international cuisine at the »Passarela do Álcool« with its many bars and restaurants.
Since 1993, the international airport in the city of Porto Seguro has contributed significantly to economic growth and tourism in this part of the country. Today, Porto Seguro is one of the most visited cities in Brazil.
The humid tropical climate of the region is one of the most pleasant in the world due to both the warm, moist winds from the South Atlantic and frequent strong winds from Patagonia.
An average temperature of 22°C in winter and 24°C in summer means our guests can enjoy beach life throughout the year. Getting AroundThere is a bus connection to Porto Seguro and Belmont. We offer transportation from and to the airport of Porto Seguro. Other Things to NoteVISAS
