There are vacation homes with views, there are homes with style, and there are homes set in just the right location. Normally travelers will get one of these things, maybe two if they’re lucky. But, one vacation home in South America knocks all three out of the park in one sweep.

The Arca house, located inside the middle of the Atlantic Forest in Brazil, is a nature and architecture lover’s combined dream come true.

The home, which comes with two bedrooms and two baths, can comfortably house up to six guests at a time. The two bedrooms each come with plush oversized beds as well as minimalist furniture set atop the home’s dark wood floors.

The home’s living room and kitchen space mimic the bedrooms’ use of minimal furniture. There, guests can lounge on beanbag chairs on the floor or sit at the wooden kitchen table.

Though really, no guest will notice the furniture as the real star of the show is the home’s massive floor to ceiling windows overlooking the natural landscape surrounding the home.

But, guests shouldn’t just sit inside looking out. Rather, they should enjoy the home’s outdoor space, which includes access to the home’s natural pool and waterfall just around the corner.

“Take a dip in the secluded natural pool at this nature-inspired, architectural masterpiece in the forest's heart,” the homeowners wrote in their description. “Pick bananas, look for monkeys, and watch blue butterflies fluttering by, too.”

“Casa Arco is an absolute architectural treasure, Marko is brilliant to have created a space like this in the middle of the forest,” one recent guest wrote. “The home is like none other, with details down to the wood joint. The architecture celebrates the beautiful nature in its surroundings with large windows that present the forest as art.”
