A short distance along the beach from the picturesque village of Canavieras in Southern Bahia, Casa Beija Flor is one of the most idyllic rental properties in Brazil. The house sleeps up to 10 guests, and has a stunning beach front location, great accommodation and a good size pool, with proximity to a lovely authentically Bahian village with good restaurants and services.
Guests invariably feel like they have discovered a new corner of the world, years before the arrival of mass tourism. Set back from the beach to ensure maximum privacy, the house is set amid the shade of the mature coconut trees of an old plantation and enjoys 200 meters of beach front.
The ground floor of Casa Beija Flor has four identically sized bedrooms (over 40 meter square plus the bathrooms), with spacious bathrooms, air conditioning and private balconies (two overlooking the sea and two overlooking the garden). Two of the rooms have queen-size beds and the other two have two twin beds. On the first floor there is a huge Master Suite with an extremely spacious bathroom and a private terrace overlooking the beach.
Casa Beija Flor is ideal for families with children of all ages and they will love playing on the beach and by the pool. Babysitting can be arranged on request.
Facilities at Casa Beija Flor include a washer/dryer, barbecue, cooker and stove, large fridges and ice maker, microwave, home theatre with DVD player and film library, dial-up internet connection and laptop for guest use. There is a lovely outdoor swimming pool and spacious deck with very comfortable loungers. The house also has direct access to the beach and there is a marlin fishing boat available for daily charter.
Casa Beija Flora is ideally located for a variety of activities including kite surfing and windsurfing (with tuition and equipment available), river trips to cacao plantations, beach walks, surfing (beginners to intermediate), fishing for marlin, wahoo and tuna, and horse riding on the beach. For those wishing to explore the area a hire car is highly recommended and the house has a car that can be rented for a reasonable rate.
Casa Beija Flor counts with services of three maids (one who lives on the property), a local cook and a gardener from 8am – 5pm, and English speaking host (4 hrs / day) and night watchman. There is one maid for evening service. It is possible to arrange additional maids, evening cover and cooks for an additional charge.

When to go
Temperatures in Bahia vary little from month to month and it's warm all year round, with average highs hovering around 30°C. April to July is the wettest season (though it can rain at any time) and June to September bring slightly cooler evenings. Salvador goes mad during Carnaval (February or March depending on the year) - more than 2 million party-goers hit the streets for a colorful riot of dancing and drinking - expect prices to hike and availability to fall dramatically.
