Your hosts, Eduardo and Philip, are a Brazilian/British married couple who live mostly in London, but for about 2 months of the year here. This is not a holiday house but our own home that we feel is a very special place and want to share with you.
The property is very large. We have a caretaker, Eden, and a housekeeper, Rose who have their own fully self contained flat on premises. If you prefer they can just visit daily in order to feed the animals but we recommend their presence as they are very helpful and discreet.
We have two dogs and two cats. They all live outside, but will come in if you let them. The dogs are a useful security support but are super friendly. The cats are very friendly as well. Please advise us if you have allergy issues as we can usually house the cats with Eden and Rose.
The beach is simply stunning - tranquil, yet occasionally wild. The sea directly in front of the house is not safe for swimming but if you walk a bit further to the right there is a protected bay which is safer and has a lifeguard. Always check with the locals about the water.
For this reason we built the swimming pool, so you can relax on the beach but cool off and swim in the pool.
Please note that the pool is 1 metre deep at its shallowest and 2 m at its deepest. Please be careful, particularly with children.
The house has three kitchens so you have a choice of catering depending upon your mood and the weather. The top floor has a BBQ oven, fridge, sink and cutlery/crockery - so is great for a BBQ lunch, a dinner under the stars or just a beer in the hammocks. The main kitchen on the first floor is fully equipped and now with a brand new large fridge freezer - ideal for most catering. Finally we have a kitchen bar by the pool, this has a free-standing BBQ oven, fridge, sink and cutlery/crockery. The pool area is more protected than the top terrace.
Location description from owner
The State of Rio de Janeiro region
Rio de Janeiro is in the South Eastern part of Brazil and just inside the tropics. The metropolitan area of Rio extends over a large area - the house is located in Recanto de Itaipuacu which is about an hour away from Galileao International Airport (GIG) or about the same distance to downtown Rio, the famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema are a further 20 minutes away by underground.
All times are subject to significant variation with Rio's infamous traffic!
Rio de Janeiro City
Recanto de Itaipuacu is the nearest truly tranquil beach to the centre of the city of Rio. Recanto is a small fishing village with a good supermarket, beachside restaurants and bars.
The main attraction of this house is its stunning natural setting, the house almost seems to be IN the South Atlantic Ocean! At the rear of the property there is a canal with a very rich birdlife.
The village is quiet and peaceful. It is ideal for a group of friends or a family who want to be together in a tranquil retreat from the city life. Rio is not far away but the property is not recommended if people want to go into the city every day!
