Heading to the land of Carnival has never felt so peaceful—or luxurious.

By Taylor Eisenhauer

Aside from its dream-worthy location, the first thing you’ll notice when setting eyes on this Brazilian vacation rental in Governador Celso Ramos (south of São Paulo in the Santa Catarina community) is its unique shape.

The mod house—made from a winning combination of old-school tropical timber and glass—cuts a striking line against the natural sea-tumbled rocks it sits on.

But as stunning as the architecture is, once inside, you won’t be able to resist looking out. Jaw-dropping vistas of the Atlantic are around every corner in this window-filled house. The first floor (and living area) boasts all-glass walls, and each of the four bedrooms comes with a sizable window, so no one will miss a sunset.

Step out onto the private beach directly from the expansive porch, which is perfect for al fresco dining, soaking up some rays, or even hunting for your next meal—yes, you read that right. The boulders along the beach are ripe for picking wild oysters, and you can catch mussels using the owners’ nets. Then whip up a fresh-from-the-sea dinner (and maybe a couple cocktails, too) in the fully equipped kitchen.

The house also boasts 2.5 baths and is one of three houses on the property. Rent one individually or all of them together (the more the merrier, right?). And the best part? Pure paradise starts at just $61 per night. Yes, $61—it’s the deal of a lifetime, folks.

Keep scrolling for more stunning panoramic ocean views (and more peeks inside), and then book your stay here.
