Why Marcelo Achá chose Portogalo
I spent my childhood in Angra and always dreamed of having a beach house to enjoy pleasant moments with family and friends.
What makes this House unique
The region is simply fantastic and one of the most beautiful in the world. There are hundreds of beaches and islands surrounded by the Rain Forest

Not worth the money
Good property, but for 3 times cheaper a day then we’ve payed.
We knew we were overpaying for 3 days, because of the one day courtesy boat experience, which is indicated in ad, so I think my experience must be included in the review. First day was courtesy and was great, we even catched the sunset (even with courtesy you still have to pay extra for gas and captain), Second boat ride day was fully payed by us, and it was cloudy in the morning, and in my opinion renter should aware us about raining A LOT, but he didn’t, so most part of the day 12pm-4pm we had a bad experience (btw whole day boat ride here is only 6 hours, 10am-4pm). And the main thing. We’ve visited Dentista Beach as our first point of 2nd boat ride day, then drived back for 20 minutes, and when we asked to come back, captain told us “no guys it’s too far, and not on our route anymore”, so after spending an hour on telephone with owner and head boat rental, they finally told its few extra dollars that I have to pay for the gas. (That amount was really low, let’s say it’s around 2 6packs is beer) I don’t know how much money owner payed to boat guy for courtesy day, maybe even nothing, because of we payed 2nd day and gas n captain fees for the first. But this small extra charge for 20 minutes ride back shows what kind of person he is. To explain better: there were no hair dryer in the house, and he bought the most cheapest on the planet the next day. My wife just used the towel. All the appliances are from 80-90 years. Clothes dryer didn’t work (but we needed it deadly after rainy boat ride). No teapot as well. So we used gas stove for boiling the water. Pool was cold, not cool, cold, so we didn’t even use it. Didn’t try sauna, but pretty sure it’s not working or smth. Absolutely nothing to do in the area, lagoon water is spoiled by boats, no restaurants or any activities nearby, only supermarket where you can buy food is 20 minutes away.
SO, I would recommend you guys, who really want to enjoy Isla Grande by boat, just rent something cheap here at Angra dos Reis, and wait for sunny weather for boat rides.
We stayed with family and friends and had one of our best vacations ever! We travel internationally every summer with 4 children and this house was perfect for our group. It is one of our favorite destinations now! The views were spectacular and the home is beautiful with plenty of space. The owner became a lifelong friend who personally greeted us and made our stay so enjoyable and relaxing! Having a boat was a huge bonus. We were able to island hop and see things we would have missed without it. Also, the staff was exceptional! We cried when we left and hope to return to our friends soon! Thank you to Marcelo and his family!
Thank you very much Staci Joe and your lovely kids. I hope to seeing you again soon.
Casa linda, muito confortável e com uma vista privilegiada. Piscina excelente e funcionária super atenciosa. Proprietário da casa pronto a atender às necessidades do hóspede . Recomendo e voltarei com certeza !
Obrigada Thaiz, foi um prazer recebê-la e espero que o retorno seja em breve. Na próxima, experimente o passeio de lancha.
I must say by far the best house I have ever been to... Marcelo’s home is truly a home it has everything, truly everything you need to have an incredible vacation! We spent 5 days in January with a full day of rain and really enjoyed his home... the layout of the house is perfect for families and or couples. It’s very secluded with I crdible views.. we Bbq’d every Night and used his lancha during the day. Marcelo was an incredible host from beginning to end... he truly took great care of us and answered every time questions in seconds. The service from his staff Cátia, Carlos and Kennedy were impeccable! I can’t wait to go back!!!! Thank you!
Thank You Pauline,
It was a pleasure hosting all of you in my home. I´m looking foward to seeing you again.
