Nice stay outside Manaus
We really enjoyed our stay! The accommodations are more like a B&B than the other houses we have stayed in with VRBO, but Douglas and Rebekah are great hosts and so accomadating! Clean beds, rooms and bathrooms. Air-conditioning works well. You will want to rent a car to get around since Manaus is about 15 minutes away, but it's so much better staying outside the city. A must is the boat tour with Douglas! Well worth the price!
Such a nice group, we would like all the groups to be like that. Really liked having you guys at our house. Thanks again
We really enjoyed our stay here. Douglas and Becky are terrific hosts.
The highlight of our stay was the sunrise hike up the observation tower at MUSA led by Douglas.
Thanks a lot for your stay. We really hope to see you next year.
Amazing trip! Best VRBO experience ever!
Our family of 4 (daughters ages 12 and 15) had a fantastic time in Manaus and that was 100% because we stayed here. The bedrooms were large and clean, the pool was warm, the atmosphere was casual, the location was perfect. Really, we couldn't have asked for more and are already planning our next trip.
We did the Botanical Garden trip with Douglas and the Meeting of the Waters trip with him, both were private tours and really special. We woke up early to go to the Botanical Gardens and watch the sunrise over the Amazon canopy. Douglas brought binoculars and bird guide books and we stayed at the top of the observation tower for 2 hours spotting different birds and watching the sun come up. He was really knowledgeable and an excellent guide. Then we came down and did a short hike through the rainforest and saw more animals learned about the ecology and biology of the area. I highly recommend this trip.
The next day we got up early again and Douglas took us by boat out on the river. We saw the river dolphins, swam at a private beach, cruised along next to the ocean liners in the Manaus harbor, passed some rural farms along the Amazon and more wildlife spotting. The "destination" was the Meeting of the Waters and it did not disappoint. He then drove us near downtown and the port before heading back. It was a full day and we were never bored.
On our last day we visited the local market where Douglas and Rebecca sell their unique Brazilian foods and they were so open and generous and treated us like friends. I truly cannot say enough good things about our experience and I recommend their home without hesitation.
Ending up having to cancel my stay, but I viewed the property.
This property is a beautiful setting - located a short distance from the airport and near the river. It is isolated but within a gated community. I hope to enjoy the hospitality of Douglas in the near future.
Thanks a lot.
The best place in Manaus for relaxation and activities.
This residence on the outskirts of Manaus is the ideal place for anyone looking to relax in natural surroundings. The owners are genuinely incredibly friendly and I left feeling part of a family. There is never a shortage of things to do. With buses and uber, all of Manaus is accessible at a very reasonable price.
The house itself is modern and clean. The bedrooms have lots of space and excellent air conditioning.
For nightlife, there are several 'flutuantes' closely, sort of like clubs at the banks of the river. Coming from a city with excellent nightlife, I found the flutuantes to be excellent to blow off some steam.
All in all, I can't recommend this dwelling enough. You won't regret it!
we also offer many trips and tours, just ask us.
