The property consists of a main house with 2 bedrooms, 1 double ensuite, and a second with an adjoining bathroom and and an ensuite double bedroom guesthouse at the top of the garden. It is situated in the front line on the Praia do Magalhães, which is a sandy beach about 1km long and generally very empty and which is at the end of the garden. It is situated in Costeira da Armação, a fishing village, very quiet and secluded, on the mainland between 30-60 minutes by car (depending on traffic) from Florianopolis. Governador Celso Ramos is a designated nature reserve so it is beautiful and very underdeveloped, with the green rainforest ( the Mata Atlantica) sloping straight down from the mountains to the white sandy beaches so even in the brightest sunlight you can always rest your eyes. Costeira is very quiet and ideal for a family holiday. If you want the bright lights, however, Florianopolis is just across the bay and easily reachable by boat or by car. There is a small supermarket in the village, which supplies everything you are likely to need and fresh fish and prawns are brought in every day by the fishermen.

Linda vista, frente para o mar, o imóvel necessita de muitas reformas
Embora seja um imóvel charmoso e de frente para o mar, necessita de muitas reformas.
I was surprised that you only gave the property 2*, Cristiane. Our housekeeper, Teresinha, told us that you said you were very happy with the property and were looking forward to returning! Perhaps she misheard you...Anyway, constructive criticism is always welcome and I would be very interested to hear from you what 'reformas' (repairs
?) do you think should be carried out. Other guests, who have stayed there have really appreciated the house's simple charm and beauty and have regularly given it 5* and glowing reports but obviously not everyone has the same tastes and/or expectations. If you have a moment I would be most grateful if you could let me know exactly what it was you objected to. Please feel free to write in Portuguese. Alexander
Costeira da Armação is a secluded village, which is its main attraction. You will not find the same amount of activities offered there as you would on the island or in Florianopolis. Our beach, Praia de Magalhães, is great for swimming, kite surfing, wind surfing, sailing or fishing from the rocks but it is not a surfing beach. There is, however, excellent surfing available 10 minutes away by car at Praia Grande or Praia de Palmas. Dolphins frequently swim up in front of the house but they are mainly to be found in Bahia de São Miguel, which is about 20 minutes away by fishing boat. It is well worth hiring or sharing the hire of a fishing boat to see the isthmus of GCR from the sea, it is stunningly beautiful with the emerald green mountains plunging down to the white beaches and blue sea, and also to visit the Ilha do Anatomirim with its well preserved ruins of the fort and garrison buildings dating from the 17C. There are a couple of kayaks + life jackets at the house for those who are fit enough and want to explore the surrounding bays on their own. Even at the peak of the season and public holidays the beach in front of the house is never crowded and most of the time you have it to yourself. The property, Stella Maris, is in the middle of the beach facing the open sea and the breakers there can be rougher than at either end so toddlers should not go into the sea there unaccompanied by an adult or without water wings. Further down the beach, to the right, the sea is much calmer and perfectly safe for bathers of all ages and swimming ability. You can set up outside tables if you want to eat al fresco under one of the trees at the end of the garden and there you have an amazing view of the beach, the bay with the big island of Santa Catarina (Florianopolis) and the other smaller islands rising up out of it. There is nearly always a breeze to keep you cool. The supermarket, Amilton, is about 100M from the entrance to the house, on the left.
