This is truly a dream location. Only an hour's drive from the 'Marvellous City' of Rio lies the safe yet bustling town of Marica and its 20 mile stretch of golden sandy beach. Along the beach are various communities to expore including Itaipuacu, Barra de Marica, Guaratiba, Cordeirinho and Ponta Negra. Our house, located on the beach at Guaratiba, is walled and gated and is in an area where the wealthy of Rio have their second homes, it's full of friendly locals, and the best thing is no hotels or skyrises here! A quiet beach where you can walk for miles, simply enjoying the feel of the sand between your toes, the sun on your face and the constant sound of the waves. You'll stay at a lovely detached house with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a living and dining room, an eat-in kitchen, an outdoor barbecue area, a fenced-in private swimming pool with dolphin fountain, private driveway for parking, and a garden overlooking the beach which is just 3 steps down. The view is spectacular with 180 degree open Atlantic Ocean view. You can lie in bed against the padded headboard drinking your coffee or tea in the morning, watching the waves come in, or you can sit at the marble table in the evening sharing a glass of wine with your loved one, watching the incredible sunsets. How about a campfire on the beach at sunset and after dark when it's still 25 degrees Celsius? The house is beautifully furnished with black granite custom tables in the dining and living rooms, granite countertops and table in the kitchen, and granite or marble countertops in each of the 3 bathrooms. Buses can be caught into Marica centro (10km) a 2-minute walk away, or you can get a taxi or simply rent your own car. From Marica's bus station you can go anywhere in the Rio area: east to the famed Buzios, or for some of the best surfing in Brazil at Saquarema, or to Cabo Frio to play in the sand dunes; then to the west there's Niteroi and Rio de Janeiro with its amazing Statue of Christ standing atop Corcovado Mountain and Sugarloaf Mountain. So much to see and do, yet in only an hour you can escape the noise and traffic of the city to the quiet of Guaratiba at Marica.
