We stayed in this little pousada last December. The owner is a very friendly and relaxed guy who lives there as well. Location was perfect as it is in the southern part of the island, the less touristic one, but can be reached by renting a car (strongly advised to move around). The most beautiful beaches can be reached by...

Stayed here as the final of a very exciting adventure trip through Santa Katarina in the begin of December 2013. The days at the Pousada Penareia have set another highlight.

If you are interested in south Florianopolis, this is definitely the place to stay. It is located on a low-traffic, but beautiful beach and just a short drive to busier beaches. The rooms are excellent, breakfast is great, and the owner is present and helpful with any questions you have about the area, etc. You can even book a private...

Stayed here for a week in mid December 2013. First the resort, like other reviewers we found it very picturesque and relaxing. The long sweeping Armacao beach was gorgeous for relaxing and walking. We had our dinner out there one night with big waves crashing in and a full moon rising about 10pm over the horizon - amazing. A good...

I spent with 2 friends of mine some days here in January 2012. Sorry for delay but I really want tripadvisor readers to know about this amazing pousada. Clean, good breakfast, 2 steps from the Armacao Beach (very calm, if you want movida go to Lagoa or Ingleses for example). We paid for a three bed just in front to...

My wife and I were looking for a quiet spot for the weekend and this place was perfect. The owner, Klaus, speaks English which was very helpful and can be hard to come by in Florianopolis. Klaus and his workers were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The rooms are decent sized with a fridge, safe, good shower pressure, etc. The...

Backing right onto Armacao Beach, this pousada was a pleasant surprise. The owner Klaus makes you feel welcome like you're staying in his house (which I guess you are ;-). The rooms are clean and functional, definitely worth paying the extra 20 realos for an upstairs room with aircon. There was a great lounge area too, our only gripe was...

The pousada was really perfect. Quiet, clean, friendly staff, great location. There is a hammock on the balcony/patio in each room, great complimentary breakfast with fresh fruits and homemade breads/cakes. The beach is right out of the back gate - really gorgeous, natural beach! Really, my only complaint was the lack of air conditioning, which of course I expected. It...
