Thanks so much for everything. Best vacation ever!! Your staff took such great care of us while we were there, we felt really fortunate - it made visiting Brazil for the first time a total breeze. Please send my best to them all and we’ll see you again very soon!

I would like to thank you again for the wonderful stay in Florianopolis. Our townhouse was great in regard to the design, infrastructure, cleanliness and the location so close to the beaches. But what I made really an outstanding stay was your personal service. We really appreciated all your help with the restaurant recommendations, spa treatments, nightlife options, etc. I would also like to thank your team who did everything to make sure that we had a great stay. It was way above our expectations and we are certainly will come back and recommend it to our friends. Thanks again for everything!

Our stay surpassed our expectations by far and was truly a 5 star experience for us overall. Thanks so much for your hospitality!

We are all back at work and depressed because we miss Floripa. I really want to thank you very very much for the great time we had. The treatment we got from you was out of this world and your staff was marvelous - we are definitely coming back next year! Thanks for the best vacation ever and please say Hi to everyone.

I just wanted to thank you in the name of all of us for the really nice stay at your place and especially for your personal hospitality. The local cell made it easy for us be in touch from everywhere we were around the island, it was amazing. We have had the holidays of our life and we will come again!!

Normally we go for resort holidays, but as the boys are getting older and no longer need the Kids Clubs and special kids’ meals, etc, we thought we would take a risk and go somewhere completely different. While researching ideas my husband happened upon the Floripa Vacation Homes website. We thought it sounded ideal in the sense of getting to discover a new part of the world we'd never been to and staying in our own house (not a hotel). But what really cinched the deal for us was the comfort and convenience of having someone collect us from the airport, organize a rental car to be waiting in the driveway, have some food and drink waiting for us in the house, a local cell phone and a concierge who could help us organize ourselves until we felt settled in enough to start figuring things out for ourselves. It was real peace of mind when travelling to somewhere so far away.
I am happy to say that Floripa Vacation Homes met all of our expectation - and more!
The house was perfect and we fell in love with our local area very quickly. We felt extremely safe at all times. We even took the boys out for beach walks at night and into the local town to the playground and market in the evenings. Everyone was so friendly. The choice of restaurants is incredible - all nationalities, but our favorite was Cirrus. It is a Brazilian place with home cooked food served at a buffet. After you have filled your plate up they weigh it and charge according to weight - which was always very cheap (and so delicious). We went there nearly every day for lunch after our surf lessons (our surf instructor was amazing and had us up on our feet riding waves in on our very first lesson!! Of course, from then on we were hooked and had a lesson nearly every day after that. It was such fun!!!).
Florianopolis Vacation Homes even organized a babysitter some evenings so we could go out for grown up dinners with some of the new friends we made there, whom we have kept in touch with and even had dinner with here in London. We were the only ones with children, but I see it as a perfect choice for those with or without children. The locals just love kids and treat them so well.
The FVH staff are the perfect hosts and really went out of their way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. One evening they helped us organize a BBQ in our house and brought in an incredible chef who cooked meats on the grill that I still dream about!! The daily housekeeping staff was wonderful and we came back from the beach each day to find a sparkling clean house. That can be a draw back to some "self catering holidays". They often have just a once a week clean, so you end up with sand in your sheets and never ending tidying and cleaning up while you are supposed to be enjoying yourself.
We truly felt immersed in the local culture throughout our stay, rather than just foreign tourists staying in a resort. We definitely plan to go back!
