Rio de Janeiro house description

Recently completed and brand new on the market, the Mirante de Guanabara is unique among luxury accommodations in the Greater Rio Area. Designed by a seasoned tourist and lover of Brazil specifically to welcome other tourists, this large home features everything that a group might want to enjoy a relaxing, carefree, and luxurious visit to the Marvelous City of Rio de Janeiro.

Very rare, this outstanding property is perched on the side of a hill overlooking beautiful Guanabara Bay. Just above the upscale neighborhoods of São Francisco and Charitas, it features an unsurpassed view of Rio de Janeiro from nearly every room in the house. All four floors of the house are view oriented and feature very wide specialty windows to maximize both the daytime and night time experience.

The house has over 8100 square feet of constructed space, including a top level pool deck that is perfect for entertaining or just enjoying the laid back Brazilian lifestyle. This floor includes a multi-level pool, party kitchen and barbeque, and the master suite with luxurious marble bath and jetted tub.

There are six additional oversized bedroom suites, a large living room, and an elegant formal dining room seating fourteen people or more. A multipurpose game room/home theater/conference room rounds out the offering. Outside the home, there are two garden seating areas, including one with a gazebo and bubbling pond.

This house was chosen for the Casa Design Show in 2012. During this 6 week event, renowned designers and architects from the area selected various rooms to display the latest in modern Brazilian luxury living. In an unprecedented move, the house was again chosen in 2013, further exemplifying the uniqueness of the property.

The Mirante de Guanabara borders a nature preserve, making it especially quiet and safer than typical Rio neighborhoods. Instead of the bustle and noise that an 8 lane major street gives Copacabana and Ipanema, we have small tree monkeys and a level of privacy that makes our pool clothing optional (if desired). The house has 24 hour monitored security and a night doorman.

São Francisco is just down the hill from the house, offering fine restaurants, casual dining, and even nightlife. The full attractions of Rio are just a short drive away. Brazilian cuisine is excellent and a pleasant surprise for new visitors to the area. The concierge can help you with recommendations, reservations, and transportation. If you would like to keep a low profile or just relax at the house, full meals can be arranged for lunch or dinner. For business travelers, a ferry a short distance from the house can have you in Downtown Rio in about 15 minutes. If you are coming for a soccer game, the time to Maracanã Stadium is only 8 minutes longer than from Copacabana or Ipanema.

Rio Holiday has accepted hundreds of groups to Rio since 2005. In addition to our first class accommodations, we have designed a level of service that can only be found in the finest hotels in Rio. There is daily maid service, a concierge, a chef, and a butler to see to your needs during the day, and a butler/doorman to attend to our guests during the wee hours of the morning. If you would like a snack or cocktail service after your night on the town, the butler can arrange it. We never close! We know how frustrating it can be to visit a place where you don’t speak the language, and we make sure that this never happens to our guests. Even when they are out on the town, guests of Rio Holiday can reach an English Speaking assistant 24 hours a day using one of our complimentary cell phones. Your concierge will begin to help you with your trip even before your arrival. Tours, excursions, and transportation can all be easily arranged.

TRAVEL AGENTS. We are very happy to work with travel agents, rental agents, tour operators, and other professionals. Please email us for more information.

*IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT OUR PHOTOS*. During the recent Casa Design show, some of our rooms were repurposed by the designers and architects in order to demonstrate their services and products. For example, a bedroom may have been converted to show as a living room or a dining room. As a result, the Mirante de Guanabara is undergoing a mini-remodel at the moment to restore all areas to better address the needs of our luxury rental clientele. For this reason, we do not have accurate photos of interior spaces at present. Most of the interior photos were taken during one of the shows, and may not represent the actual furnishings and decorations that you will see on arrival. We intend to furnish the house to a similar level of style and luxury, and will provide accurate photos as soon as they become available.

                              Car: Not Necessary

                              This beautiful house is located in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro, one of the most exciting and romantic cities in the world. The entire area offers many attractions and must-see sights. They include the statue of Christ overlooking Rio, Sugar Loaf with its aerial trams, the Maracanã Stadium, and the world famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. Rio is famous for its nightlife, culture, and music scene, and is a city steeped in history. The weather in Rio is warm all year long and is appealing to sun bathers and others who wish to relax on their vacations.

                              Rio will host the FIFA World Cup beginning in June of 2014 and the Olympics in the summer of 2016. Every year, the famous Rio Caranaval attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors, but the area enjoys a year round tourist season. There are museums, churches, art galleries, forts, zoos, and even historic palaces in or near Greater Rio.

                              We recommend that our guests visit the main attractions, including the famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. These can be reached by car or taxi in about 30 minutes from the house. Rio Holiday can arrange all of your transportation, tour, and excursion needs. For day to day beach activities, we recommended the closer beaches of Camboinhas and Itacoatiara. These beaches are very popular among locals and are not as crowded, with lower levels of petty crime.

                              The community of São Francisco, just below the house, offers many fine and casual restaurants, as well as popular bars and nightlife. Brazilian cuisine is not to be missed and a very pleasant surprise to new visitors.

                              For the reclusive traveler, the house and our service offer a large heated pool with spectacular view, meals, and even gourmet cuisine. In short, everything you need to relax and enjoy a quiet retreat.
