Info on the Isle Esme HouseNov 8th, 2010 | By Stefanie | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News
FoForks once again has come through with some awesome news about Breaking Dawn in Brazil! The latest news is that they now know the location that’s being used for the Isle Esme scenes and they have some details on the security and setup for filming (translated with Google Translate):
Reportedly, the original furniture of the house are being saved and protected and more mobile that fit the description of the book by Stephenie Meyer are being put in place. Besides furniture, are already at the heavy equipment and three generators, two of them being at sea and one in the house.
Everyone involved with the film production, foreign and Brazilian, were summoned to a meeting on Saturday where they were informed that it will be forbidden to bring cameras or cell phones that this device available for installation and that somehow there is routine recording of the scenes Movie or transmit it to the press information will be dismissed and the person may be prosecuted.
(for those who don’t want to know the details, or see what the house looks like stop here!)
So the house is not actually on an island, but once you see what the house and surrounding area looks like I don’t think it’ll matter. 😉 I will say it’s not quite how I pictured it would be. I saw it as more of a teeny tiny bungalow with trees surrounding it on all sides, so when I saw this house I was like, “Okay, so it appears as though Carlisle could afford something a bit bigger than what I imagined!
I mean, look at those mountains! “The hilllls are aliiiiiive…” Okay, wrong country, but still! They’re gorgeous!
You can visit the rental website for the house here to see a bunch more pictures.
Rental fees for the house start at $8.000 reais, which is about $5,000, in the off season for a minimum stay of 3 days, and goes up to about $8,000 in the high season. So if you’ve got cash to spare, and want to visit the place where the magic happened–I cannot believe I just typed that, haha–then check out Casa em Paraty.
So what do y’all think? Is Isle Esme how you pictured it’d be? Would you ever spend that amount to stay in the house where they shot the infamous Isle Esme scenes?
