Excellent 8.8
Pros: Great villa not far from the beach. The property has a private pool and each room has their own hammock, which I loved! The owner spoke English and was very helpful with anything I needed.
Cons: While it wasn't far from the beach (~10 min walk), it's not really close to anything else if you're not coming with a car. 30 mins walking to a sushi restaurant in town (but not sure if there's anything else in that area). Also there was some construction work in the buildings next door.

Excellent 9.3
Pros: Felt like a family! The hostel is very clean and everybody was really nice. We had a great time and spent a week here, instead of two nights. It’s more to the south, so not that tpuristic, which we really liked. Would recommend!
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Very nice and simple place. Good to meet people. Really good/cheap price ever more knowing that the breakfast is included. The breakfast is really basic (fruits, bread and coffee) but it is enough. The people there is really helpful and friendly; make you feel at home, and are always available to help you.
Cons: There are too much beds in one room, so the space you can use is very restricted. It is not the worse thing ever, as you use the room mostly to sleep, but you would feel much better with more space. There are not much bathroom in comparison with the people that can stay there, so you usually have to wait some time to take a bath.

Pros: This place is amazing!! Debora was our favourite part of the stay! She really knows how to make her guests relax and just be on vacation and have fun. She is full of suggestions on what you can do while staying there, and saves you from endless hours of trying to figure out what to do or where to go. She goes out of her way to make sure you have everything you need at all times, and is extremely helpful! Some of the things we did while staying here: hiking to a far away beach with Debora and her boyfriend and eating delicious fish prepared at a little "restaurant" by the beach with an amazing view, visiting her sisters art gallery (and home!) which was really cool, we went hawaiian canoeing with Debora one morning (great fun!), she showed us the nearby town and where to eat, and she organised a hanggliding tour for us. We had such an amazing time! Her house is also really nice and clean, and situated in a safe neighbourhood with a really good lunch place across the street (Sufocos) - cheap and yummy! The supermarket and the beach is also within walking distance. Our room was lovely and spacious, with a comfy bed, and it was cleaned for us every day <3 The breakfast made by Debora was DELICIOUS! We highly recommend it! It consisted of different things every day, and you can have it exactly when you like in the morning. Great service! We always got some fruits, yoghurt, toasts/eggs, different juices and a sweet surprise at the end ;) Thank you so much for your hospitality and for making our first days in Brasil so perfect Debora! We definitely want to come back!!
Cons: We loved everything!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Wonderful time on Santa Catarina island. My mum and I have been traveling Brazil for quite a bit and we have been to many good accommodations, but Floripa’s Guesthouse is clearly outstanding. The guesthouse is located only a few minutes from the beach, right next to one of the lagoons. It consists of a big shared area including a well-equipped kitchen (that is free to use), a spacious living room and a beautiful garden. Furthermore, there are two bedrooms, each of which has a private bathroom. Generally, the house is super clean. The neighborhood is cozy and you cannot only find a big supermarket at the end of the street, but also an excellent bakery two blocks away and of course sufocos - the first choice restaurant of locals, where you can find tasty traditional meals and live music for cheap money. Last but not least, the host lady Debora is an angel. She is always around to make your stay as comfortable as possible. If you have a question regarding the island and the surroundings, she always has a good advice. We were even taken to a Carnaval parade by her, which was very unique to us. If we should come back to Brazil one day, we will definitely stop by at his lovely place. Thank you again, Debora. Monika and Tim
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The Floripa Guest House was a really nice place to relax and enjoy the gorgeous Floripa area. The owner, Debora, was a perfect host. The room was spacious and tidy. The garden was just the best. Recommended stay in Floripa!
Cons: Nothing, this is a real good stay centrally located in Floripa.
Okay 5.5
Cons: deborah was lovely and the guest house is nice. there was construction during my stay so would have appreciated a refund for the night i didnt stay due to the unbearable noise. i was here to relax and i had to leave the guest house.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: I picked Casa Terra because it looked like the only place where Joaquina and Campeche were within walking distance. They were, although both are about 40 minutes. What I didn´t know is that the surf just out in front of the hostel is good. In fact I felt quite silly walking along to Joaquina in the morning past empty peak after empty peak.
