Behind the famous Quadrado along the narrow and private path or “Beco,” this vacation home rental in Brazil is situated in a micro-neighborhood of quiet homes and guesthouses just steps from the town square.
One of several unique casas in a collection created by designer Wilbert Das, it’s a great home to share with friends and family in a relaxed and chic setting.
Hidden behind a simple wooden gate, the property is a private tropical compound of freestanding structures spread throughout the gardens and connected via paths and wooden decks.
The main structure with its cobalt blue hue is the central gathering spot with a large eat—in kitchen and dining area with shady verandas overlooking the three separate guest units with the sparkling pool, gazebo, and outdoor dining areas forming the heart of the home. The colorful independent suites offer guests a comforting sense of privacy, when sharing the property.
Inspired by authentic Bahian traditions, the interiors are a mix of light, contemporary and handcrafted pieces created from rich local wood with traditional Pataxó Indian crafts, textiles and art.
The lush tropical gardens extend along the Beco into the Quadrado and the ancient and wild rainforests where you’ll share the jungle landscape with the local monkeys and exotic birds.
With a laid-back sense of ease and a stylish simplicity, Casa do Beco delivers the perfect homage to the best of Trancoso.

The charming and rustic town of Trancoso sits along the southern region of the Atlantic coast of Bahia along beautiful stretches of unspoiled shoreline.
A former laid back hippy destination, the town is attracting a more jet set crowd of late but remains laid back. From the UNESCO designated Quadrado, to the cobble stone streets and candy colored houses, this bluff side village hums along at a dreamy pace. The nearby beaches of Praia do Espelho, Praia dos Nativos, Rio da Barra are to the north and Rio Verde, Itaquema and Ponta de Itapororoca are to the south.
Further North is the historic town of Arraial D’Ajuda in the district of Porto Seguro belonging to the region known as Discovery Coast (Costa do Descobrimento), where Portuguese explorers arrived in 1500. A peaceful and unique seaside village, it’s located on a plateau overlooking the breathtaking coastline.
