Arrive to the blue gates of A Vida é Um Carnaval and step out of your taxi into the warm, salty air. Enjoy the fresh breeze that sweeps over the ocean, rustling the coconut palm leaves and cooling the tropical heat.
From the moment of your arrival, Nina and the team will be on hand to take care of all the details. From picking up groceries then transforming them into gorgeous fruit salads and seafood curries, to careful housekeeping, coconut cakes, and home made caipirinhas - and that's just Nina's help.
Huelton, your caseiro during your stay, is always there when you need him to run an errand, wash down your sticky kite kit, or light up the bbq.
The spacious and beachfront villa comfortably sleeps up to 10 adults and a baby - ideal for kitesurfing groups and families. Those with little ones in tow will find paradise here. Trusted babysitters who take care of our own kids, a large shallow area in the swimming pool, a treasure chest of toys and trampoline mean one thing: entertained, happy children. And as we all know, consequentially relaxed and very happy parents...
For those looking to lounge poolside with a good book in hand, A Vida é um Carnaval offers just that: smoothies, sunshine and large loungers where you can close your eyes or even steal a few glances at the surfers catching waves in front of the front gate.
And for the folk who grow restless poolside, there are a wide range of activities from which you can find bursts of adrenalin and endorphins.
Go for a buggy ride, zipping down the beach and up the dunes, bumping and tearing your way through coconut trees and past groups of startled donkeys. Pause for a few moments at the top of the dunes to gaze at the moon emerging from the over the ocean, whilst the sun retreats behind the sand. Or if blending in with nature suits you better, do the same on horse back.
What else you ask? Kitesurfing, whether in the open waters on the tranquil lagoon just 10 minutes away by buggy, surfing right in front of the house, and to sooth the sore muscles after so much excitement, an in-house yoga session followed by a massage with the waves as your soundtrack.
Taiba is the real Northeastern Brail. If manicured resorts and shopping malls are what you're after, you won't find that in Taíba. Instead, you'll come across local joints where the fishermen swig beer and sway to the music of reggae bands, families lounging roadside and speakers larger than the car boots in which they sit, playing thumping beats late into the night.
The villa's privileged location on the beachfront places you in the midst of the beachy buzz; find couples catching rays just metres away and surf fans perching on the front garden gate, watching their friends glide across the rolling waves.
Life here is simple, raw and yet invigorating. Brazil always welcomes its guests with open arms and in Taíba, with open hearts as well. Prepare to fall in love <3
