Description from owner

This place will seduce you. It did entice us. As soon as we discovered this quiet fishermen village, surrounded by the best beaches in Rio de Janeiro we dreamt of building a family house. Barra de Guaratiba is only 40 km from Ipanema and 55 km away from Downtown. On a normal day, avoiding rush hour, one takes 50 minutes to get there.

Its a very safe neighborhood , with a charming small-town feel ,a clean local beach 5 min walk from our place and a beautiful sunset across the ocean!

The surrounding wild beaches of this area like Prainha , Grumari, Praia do Meio are covered with native vegetation (national park) full of birds and small animals. The beaches have fine,white sand and ocean water of the best quality in Rio. The good waves are very much appreciated by the surfers. Truly a paradise! Some are reached only by foot(40mins hike) or by car(10mins) from our house.

Barra de Guaratiba is considered the best Gastronomical Center for seafood restaurants. The fresh crabs come from a beautiful

Barra de Guaratiba is considered the best Gastronomical Center for seafood restaurants. The fresh crabs come from a beautiful nearby lagoon (Mangue)- you can take one of our kayaks and explore it all by yourself. You can also visit the home and park of Roberto Burle Marx the famous landscaper/botanist only 10 mins drive from the village.

Our house was designed by my architect husband and his father. Its has all the qualities of ecological, sustainable home with solar energy , green roof and grey water treatment and comfort of a family beach house. We offer you a large wooden deck with an amazing view on the ocean and the beach below. A vast garden packed with tropical plants,trees and flowers. A unique house tastefully furnished with a big living room and fully equipped American kitchen. The 3 bedrooms with balconies and 2 bathrooms offer a comfortable retreat.

Our house is positioned on a hill - from the village square (with supermarket and bus stop) its will take you 10min to walk up or 3 min to drive up!

We are next to Recreio and Barra da Tijuca, close to Rio Centro Convention Center and the Olympic Village of Olympic Games 2016.

The State of Rio de Janeiro region

Barra de Guaratiba is a small fishermen village within the city of Rio.The hilly landscape is a protected tropical forest , surrounded by the most beautiful beaches of the city, some which can only be reached by a 60 minute hike or by boat. There is also a large mangrove full of birds and we have two kayaks which you can use to explore the many waterways. The area is renowned for its many seafood restaurants.

Day trips to central Rio is 50 km away and takes just over an hour by car when avoiding traffic hour.

Rio de Janeiro City

The village has a basic supermarket, fish market, bakery, pharmacy, hardware store, and many restaurants. The locals are very friendly and helpful. This is a very safe neighborhood.There is the main beach and two other very small ones. The house is perched up the hill from the beach, a 7- 10 minute walk up or a 2-3 minute drive. There is also a local mototaxi service to take one up and down the hill for a small fee.

From the house you have an amazing view of the bay and the vast ocean, where the sun set directly into the water.
