Based in; Stokholm,Sweden
I have bought an oceanfront house in Sao Miguel de Gostoso, 2 beachfront plots in Maracajau and 3 beachfront plots in Caraubas, over the past 3 years all in the north of Natal. I have also set up a business and obtained a permanent visa here in Brazil.
I bought all of them through Mike Smith at Brazil Beach House and used their accountant to get the company and visa. Mike has proven to be extremely helpful, honest and trustworthy.
I would recommend anyone to purchase through him as you won't get better service from anybody else.
I invested in the North of Natal as I can see the potential in the coming years. I am looking to build a villa on one of my plots later this year.
It's highly likely I will make some more beach investments in the near future and I will
definitely purchase through Brazilbeachhouse again.
Occupation;Oil industry Consultant
We bought a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom beach house on the beachfront in Maracajau, near Natal in February 2010. The beach house was bought as an investment and we will also use it as a second home. This is the second time I've used Mike Smith at Brazbeachhouse.com(I also bought 4 landplots with Mike 2 years ago in Genipabu. The reason is Mike Smith provides a first rate service, is reliable and honest. I won't hesitate to recommend Mike Smith and would use brazbeachhouse again to buy or sell properties in Natal, Brazil.
Based in;Vancouver BC
My name is Mike and I was born in Vancouver BC, and currently live here. I met my beautiful Brazilian wife in Vancouver. I did not know anything about Brazil until she took me there. She was born in Rio De Janeiro and wanted to show me her favouirite part of Brazil on a vacation, it was Natal, RN. We went to Natal.... and I quickly saw the reasons for her love of this beautiful city. Natal is cosmopolitan, with its clubs, modern homes, and food scene.... it also affords you private strolls along world-class, secluded, and very safe beaches. These beaches were especially beautiful in our favorite area, *Genipabu Beach*. My wife and I not only plan for our retirement future, (45 years old we are hoping), we act on it, and decided to in this case, and bought in Natal.... We found the property price comparison in Natal to be hugely undervalued compared to Canadian property values.The weather is incredible and the food prices are a fraction of the cost. What more is there to a couple's overhead expense? That is why we decided to purchase and a own property in Natal. Our future becomes easy to see, especially with a combined overhead expense roughly 50% less of North American costs, why would you retire anywhere else? After finding Mike Smith on the web and exchanging a few calls.... I went to Genipabu, Natal, and lived 2 houses down from him for 1 week. I spent my time evaluating properties to buy, but also, was there to get a feel for who he is as a person. I watched him take calls and respond to matters from his many clients. He proved to be very sincere, fair and honest. Mike also had a great sense of humor and a dog, that would literally stand up and hug you every time I came over, that was really cool. Hehe Long story short, we bought a magnificent 450 meter plot over looking the famous Genipabu Beach and plan to build a home over the next few years. How can you go wrong with a city lot, in your personal, (100% ownership name), full electrical already routed by the city to the property, and views that never end. Initial costs of building a moderate home on this plot are a fraction of a single bedroom apartment in Vancouver. *I would rather own a beautiful house on a hill and retire in Brazil early... than be in debt, own a small apartment, and retire in Vancouver late.
* Mike Vancouver BC
