Too many boutique hotels just dress a bed nicely to hide a cheap old mattress, but at Casa do Dean in Bahia, Brazil, a good night's sleep is top of the agenda. All the beds are custom made, with high-quality mattresses shipped in and there are black-out curtains, but in white for aesthetic reasons. The vision is very specific - think New York-style loft but with a Brazilian touch, with quirky lamps from Buenos Aires, retro film posters from Sao Paulo and artworks from the local area. The entire house is available for exclusive rental only and operates like a small boutique hotel. There are 2 bedrooms and three new apartments (two of which can be interconnected to accommodate parents with young children)- and an off-site English 'concierge'. These new rooms are on a new deck below the existing house but with the same impressive view of the Atlantic Forest. It is a 5-minute walk from the often-secluded beaches of Arraial d'Ajuda. The house comes with a fantastic 'House Book' which is a custom written guide to the local area, day trips, restaurants and personal recommendations from the owner.


Ask the helpful staff for tips and ideas for city stop overs en-route in Salvador , Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo. Local Manager (Brian Mee) who has lived in Brazil for 8 years is able to help with local information, internal flights and advise on excursions and onward travel arrangements. Reiki, horse riding and massage can all be arranged. Arraial today has a thriving international community, four or five chic shopping centres, an amazing array of restaurants and bars - a nightlife which will extend to 24-hours if you want it to and access to some of the best beaches in Brazil. Other exciting improvements at Casa do Dean include an outdoor pool, a barbecue area and new grassed garden.


Trancoso is a former fishing village which has become home to the rich and the famous. A long walk along the beach or a 30-minute drive inland, its charming grassed village square and church and candle-lit restaurants and famed boutiques and small shops are frequented by many international celebrities as well as by canny travellers who appreciate the charms of these two unique and captivating villages. Arraial D Ajuda the village that the house is in has great restaurants (Sushi /Italian /Fish / Argentinean/ Brazilian / Thai) and wonderful nightlife so everything is actually right on the door step!  The new swimming pool is a welcome addition.
