This is not a Hamptons beach house. Jan Eleni Lemonedes and Ronnie Stam became enamored with Trancoso after a visit there with friends. Built originally as their dreamy bohemian home in Brazil, Casa Lola, surrounded by mango trees and filled with artisan crafts from the couple’s travels, is now a stunning and tranquil guest house with rooms to rent for holidays.


The three bedroom home is made up of two houses and an Indonesian tiled swimming pool. It sleeps six and amenities like housekeeping and cooking are available. Lemonedes’ and Stam’s cozy home redefines boutique travel, and sets the standard for intimate and casually luxe accommodations very, very high.
