In this lovely one-room cabin sorrounded by the forest and its wafting essential oils, one need only breath to wake the sleeping self ..the more relaxed, sensitive, respectful self who free from city stress. Whether lounging in our swinging knit chair or lollying about in the hammock on the screened-in veranda, ones sensibilities are enhanced and awareness increased. A place of simplicity and silence ...for a more-than-reasonable price. Before leaving clean and take all solid waste with you.

The space
Little country cabin in the woods in a preservation area in Brazil's Southern Coastal Rain Forest. Charming, easy, fun and secluded. Studio setting with kitchen, sleeping and dining areas all in one space. The wc and wash basin are the only two separate spaces. Great place for a meditative retreat and volunteering. After booking, ask about our volunteer program and what you can do to help us preserve this planetary treasure. What will you bring to the plate when you visit?

Where you’ll be

Piraquara, Paraná, Brazil

You will be able to explore miles of forested land, part of the remaining southern coastal forest complex call Mata Atlântica. This area has more species of flora and fauna than the Amazon and because of it's proximity to the coast, it has been constantly impacted by the country's endless coastal population increases.

I am from Fort Lauderdale, FL, but live in Curitiba, Brazil, for the last 36 years protecting a large piece of Rainforest land using profits from my rental units (three in the forest and two in Curitiba) to finance my private preservation efforts. People who book my apartments in the city of Curitiba will also be able to book days in the rainforest on the property of my private preservation project.

We don't raise any animals on the property but, rather, watch nature do her thing. There are trails and even a small indigenous community just down the road.

When I travel, mostly to see friends or family, I like to leave the places I stay better than I found them. If nothing needs fixing, I usually make a drawing or a painting and leave it behind.

I love hanging out with friends, making food, going on short excursions and long walks.

I can't live without friends, family, nature in general, my son and his family and my partner (not necessarily in that order... ha!)

I love theater, the symphony, dance of all sorts, performers of all kinds. I like the movies and would rather eat in than to go out to restaurants.

As a host, I have become less interactive with my guests but, always available. As I live mostly a quiet life in the woods, I encourage all visitors to be courageous about being silent and getting into the forest.

She is our great resource of pleasure and knowledge.

I encourage visitors to contribute to our preservation efforts by heloing with the claening before leaving. This allows us more time to seek solutions to the myriad of complex opportunities which present themselves in an out-of-pocket preservation effort. At my advanced age, cleaning houses is not sustainable. Because of the romoteness of the location adequate cleaning help is difficult and prohibitive cost wise.

We do as much screening as we can before approving your reservation requests, so as to assure your visit will be sustainable.

During your stay

There is a caretaker on hand during the week until Saturday noon.

There is another property exactly in front of this property on the other side of the road where emergency information can be obtained if the caretaker or myself are not present.

You can always communicate with me or the caretaker by phone or WhatsApp.

There are G3 cellular phone signals on the property which allow for moderately reliable internet access as well as phone service (depending on your telephone provider). TIM is the only reliable telephone and internet provider in our area.

As the property is one of the last properties on the electric lines, electric service can go out for small periods of time. Wind is our greatest enemy where electric lines are involved.

If lights go out, patience is in order.
