Castaway Vibes at this Restored Former Fishing Hut

A colorful cabana on a UNESCO World Heritage protected town square in Brazil, this tropical hideaway is bright and breezy, with exposed tile ceilings, bright white walls and floors, and vivid pops of tropical décor. Comfortable, cozy, and compact, the home’s traditional façade remains, and this vacation home rental in Brazil offers a charmingly remodeled, tropically-inspired interior.

A sweetly remodeled fishing hut from Trancoso’s colonial era, this UNESCO classified home retains its original façade, and offers a brightly updated interior space perfect for a family or a larger group, if combined with its nextdoor neighbor. Set directly on Trancoso’s historic Quadrado, or town square, the original fisherman’s hut has been updated with sleek polished walls and floors and the addition of overhead skylights to let in the tropical sunshine.

A 10-minute walk from the beach, the house has a deck surrounded by tropical foliage, and indoor spaces ideal for barefoot living. The kitchen is fully equipped for preparing the catch of the day, the living area features built-in sofa seating with abundant throw pillows, and the work of local artisans decorates the walls, including vivid paintings and bright baskets. Sconces and pendant lamps are made of rattan and cane, tropical plants add to the vibrant scene, and a split-level den features sweet rockers fashioned in tropical wood.

There’s a view of the historical town square right out the front door, and a vista that extends all the way to the Bahia coast and the Atlantic.


AROUND

This vacation home rental in Brazil is located in Trancoso. A low-key beach town that was once a favored, way off-the-beaten-path hippie destination, Trancoso is now more hipster than hippie. Either way, the now stylish former fishing village’s cobbled streets and candy-colored houses on a bluff overlooking the ocean make it a destination everyone can get behind. 

Trancoso’s center, known as O Quadrado, is a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site, and the town was originally created by Jesuit priests in the late 1500s and left practically cut off from the rest of the country until its hippie revival in the 1970s. Still pristine, the area is famed for its unspoiled beaches of golden sand and swaying palms. Located in Brazil’s South Bahia region, with miles of Atlantic coastline, the nearby villages of Arraial d’Ajuda and Caralva are also worth a visit, and one of Brazil’s most beautiful beaches, Espelho, with its unique warm swimming lagoons that form at low tide by the coral reefs, is also easily accessible.
