Pousada das Meninas is a nice place to be on Ilha do Mel. The ambiance is homey and friendly: there are different living areas, and the rooms are exclusively decorated.
Suzi, a friendly lady who speaks some English, will be your host with her family at Pousada das Meninas. It will be her pleasure introducing Ilha do Mel to her guests. At check in, Suzy explains everything you need to know about the island, like places to eat, things to see and tours to take.
Pousada das Meninas also offers boat tours around the island. The tours are guided by Pichete, Susi's husband. Pousada das Meninas provides beach chairs and towels.
During holidays, guesthouses have other rates and minimum stay periods. The rates on site are not valid for national holidays.
Susi has been travelling to the island since she was a teenager, as she loved to surf. She used to work as cultural producer in Curitiba before she suddenly made the decision to leave the stressful life behind and spend the summer on the island. By that time, she had a house there and began to rent rooms for tourists.
She married Pichete, a native from the island, and together they built "Pousada das Meninas". Susi says that without his help she probably would have given up right in the beginning, as it is quite difficult to transport anything to the island. Pichete has a boat and takes tourists to the wonderful places in the Paranaguá Bay. They have two children and enjoy very much the calm and easy-going lifestyle on Ilha do Mel.
