About our home

Our summer beach house was built 30 years ago, but was totally renovated 7 years ago. Guarujá is a beach city 1 hour and twenty minutes drive from São Paulo. We are located at Enseada Beach, one of the nicest and least crowded beaches in Guarujá. The house is one block from the beach, only 70m walk through the pedestrian passage that runs by the side of the house. We have 7 complete bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, each with shower and toilet. We have a gourmet BBQ area beside the heated pool. The small fishing village of Pereque nearby is a great place to buy freash whole fish, shrimp and squid that can be prepared on the BBQ. We have a live-in housekeeping couple (an apartment behind the house) that prepare the meals, clean, take care of the pool and even make the BBQ! They are most pleased to wake early and bring fresh baked bread and the morning paper. Surfing, swimming, golf and boating activities are the most prevalent in Guaruja. There are several very good restaurants within 10-15 minute walk of our home. We have bicycles, surfboards and other equipment at the house that you are most welcomed to use!

We also could make available our new principal residence in Sao Paulo city. We have just moved after an 18 month renovation! This house has 4 suites and sleeps 5 comfortably. We are located in the luxurious and centrally-located residential area called Cidade Jardim. We have a housekeeping staff including a driver who can be available during your stay. For someone interested in knowing Sao Paulo city as well as spending time at the beach, this could be a very nice combination.


More about us

  1. We are Darryl and Andrea, a married couple with three girls (9, 13, 15). Andrea is a corporate lawyer, and Darryl is a Canadian-born businessman who is partner in an M&A firm and who is also the founder of the world's first soccer theme park in São Paulo city. We love to travel, and try to do so as much as possible. We have never done a home exchange before but have heard some great things about it from friends who have. We believe it would be a great way to travel with our children and for them to experience other cultures. We also believe that a family (or two) would have a wonderful time at our beach house! We can arrange a non-simultaneous exchange,as the beach house is our second home.

Where is it?


Guarujá is actually an island, located close to the port city of Santos (home of the famed football player, Pelé, and a great place to see a football match). A short 1:20 minute drive from São Paulo, the beach of Enseada is rarely crowded. We have a large wide beach with soft white sand. The beach is so big that people often string up a tennis net and play tennis on the harder sand on the beach. The small fishing village of Pereque is great to buy fresh seafood or to eat at any of the 20 or so restaurants. We have a beautiful golf course nearby, great waves for surfing, or just for relaxing. The house is very big and accomodates a minimum of 16 people.
