My husband and I traveled here with my parents (in their 70's) and it was important to me that we stay in a convenient location where my parents could get around easily and enjoy their time in Florianopolis and be close to the beach. We absolutely LOVED this pousada! The breakfast is fantastic with an array of fresh fruit, juices,...

We loved this Pousada. From the amazing breakfast (Catarina is the chef, and she makes cakes, pao de queijo, fresh waffles, and there are fresh juices every morning) to the beach in your backyard, this Pousada was absolutely perfect. We will stay here again.

I am an American who lives in Argentina married to an Argentine. For those who understand and know Brazil, this pousada is very non-Brazilian for being in Brazil. It is more European than Brazilian that is to say...Klaus, the owner, is Austrian-Brazilian and it shows in the details of his pousada. We love Brazil and the European touch makes this...

I stayed her together with my wife and my parents. A very nice pousada in a quiet part of Floripa. The owner KLaus is very friendly and helpful in guiding you through the places where to go to. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. Perfect hot shower! My parents occupied the room with the BBQ place, a nice option....

It had good reviews on this website and chose to stay there with my wife for four days. Close to the airport and better yet away from all of the tour bus traffic on the north of the Island. I would rent a car as this location is a little further away from the populated areas..... and get a GPS...

Klaus, the owner, is very friendly. The breakfast is extraordinary, with homemade cereal bars, cakes, and breads and a large selection of fresh juices, cheeses, meats, and cereals. Rooms are clean and big and have nice comforters and pillows but otherwise don't have a lot of charm. Bathroom is nothing special, but the showers have lots of hot water. The...

Pousada Penareia is a beautiful B&B right on the beach. The breakfast is the most amazing breakfast I have ever had at a B&B. There are homemade cakes and breads, fresh squeezed juice, fruit, yogurt, granola, meats, cheese, waffles etc. It is so impressive and delicious. Klaus (the owner) was helpful with providing tips about where to go on the...

This little oasis looks great in photos and is even better in the flesh. First thing to mention is the breakfast... in a month of travel around Brazil and Argentina, no place we stayed even came close by comparison - there aren't enough superlatives to describe it!

I stayed at the Pousada Penareia with my husband for the New Year´s Eve. At this time of the year Florianopolis can be unpleasantly overcrowded. But the hospitality and loving care of the owners, Klaus and Fernanda, will make you feel you´re at home. Although it´s a relatively new place, some couples have been there for 3 or 5 times...
