One of the greatest advantages of staying in a villa is the personalised service provided by dedicated staff. The warm and friendly Brazillian staff are all local and many have worked at Beach House Prea from its inception and will do their utmost to make you feel at home.
During your stay, please don’t hesitate to talk to our beach house manager to discuss any specific requirements.
Once you arrive at Beach House Prea, you will soon find you don’t want to leave! After a long day kitesurfing or lounging in hammocks, what better than to have dinner brought to you by our chef, preparing delicious local fare for your convenience and great enjoyment. In our choice of indoor or outdoor dining rooms, under the clear starry skies, enjoy your dinner with drinks again delivered to you*.
Breakfast is a table full of fruit, fresh-squeezed juice, coffee and teas, cereals and a hot option each day. Our chef then prepares a cold lunch and salad which is left for the guests to enjoy at the time of their choosing.
Of course, there will be times you wish to experience the nightlife in Jericoacoara or Prea, in which case you may take a buggy into town and eat, drink and enjoy the famous sunset over dune.
*drinks are not included in the full-board rate, but may be ordered in at short notice at guests’ expense
Our pool also has a shallow shaded area for your children to enjoy safely while you are in the main pool. The house’s balcony is surrounded by a railing, and there is so much room in the living area, there is plenty of room for them to play and run around, even before they head outside to the garden and the beach!
The house is staffed 24/7 for your safety and convenience, but we can also arrange extra nannies or childminders if you would like a bit more free time during your holiday… so if everyone wants to go out kiting at the same time, why not? Let us find you a babysitter and take any remaining stress away.
We can arrange your 4x4 transfers from Fortaleza airport. Please contact us at time of booking.
There is a private buggy available for hire at Beach House Prea. Alternatively you may call a buggy driver at any time.

The nearest international and domestic airport is Fortaleza, which is a 3.5–4 hour drive away. Most visitors to the area choose to have an airport transfer arranged as the quickest and safest method of getting to Jeri or Prea. We can organise a 4×4 transfer to be there waiting for you at the airport, and for your return journey. A Toyota Hi-lux can carry 4 people plus luggage, and a Land Rover 6 people. Please ask as at the time of booking.
We do not provide kites for rental at the house directly, but our house manager can organise rental for you to be there ready for you.
There is a limited supply of new and second-hand gear in Jeri, and there is no guarantee of reliability or value. We highly recommend you bring your own equipment if you have it, or rent your equipment when here.
There is still no cash machine in Jericoacoara. Most shops and the larger restaurants take credit card, but we do recommend you bring some spending money with you. The best method of getting cash once in Brazil is to go to the ATMs at Fortaleza airport, on the Departures side (go up the escalator after you have exited the Arrivals area). There are some cash exchange services in Jericoacoara but the rates may vary a lot. The closest ATM to Beach House Prea is in Acarau, a town 30mins away by car.
Bath towels and all bedding is provided, with a mid-week laundry service. Please bring your own beach towels for use after swimming in the pool or sea.
Yes. Please ask our house manager for details at the house. The washing machine is for our staff’s use only, so our housekeeper can do your laundry for you at a small fee, paid directly to her.
Beach House Prea has an enviably peaceful position away from the hustle and bustle of the towns, and also upwind of all the kitesurfing schools, giving you your own wind and waves to enjoy. To get to Prea, it is a 15 minute walk down the beach, or a few minutes by buggy. To Jeri, it is a 2–3 hour walk, or 25–30mins by buggy. If you wish to go out for an evening, a driver will take you there and wait for you at an agreed location. Please check the map here.
Yes of course. We ask for R$50 per extra person for dinner; a full feast involving local fish and vegetables and dessert.
The guest fridge is stocked with soft drinks on arrival at the house. Thereafter drinks are bought at guests’ expense. We can help you order soft drinks, wine, beer and spirits to be delivered to the house, for you to pay the delivery driver direct.
