Come Enjoy Rio de Janeiro as if you live here!!!!
This private home is located in the prestiges neighborhood of Joatinga which is considered the Beverly Hills of Rio. It is a gated, 24 hour security neighborhood with it's own beach. The Beach is known as a surfers beach because of the great waves. Depending on the time of the year there is also little to no sand but this is usually in our winter months and short lived. Also you should be in pretty good shape to get to this beach. Although it has a clear paved path it is down the side of a rock mountain. I have no problem to take my 5 year old daughter with me but for those who are older and in less shape I like to let you know.
The house sits on the side of the mountain in the jungle where you will live harmoniously in nature with the monkeys, toucans and other rain forest life. Your view will be of the very famous Pedra da Gavea mountain. Quite spectacular!
The house was build by the famous Brazilian Architect Zanini who was ahead of his time using mainly recycled demolition wood and other materials. Most of the furniture and furnishings were all imported from Bali, India and other parts of Asia. You will feel like you have stepped into a tropical paradise retreat.

We also provide you with our full time house keeper/employee on a daily basis. His schedule is usually from 9-5 M-F and some times on Sat if needed.
It is a truly special place.
You have Public buses that run right outside the gates of the neighborhood. They will take you to almost anywhere you want to go. Also they have been working to extend the metro to our area and they say it will be done in time for the Olympics in 2016. You also have a taxi stand just an 8 min walk away and can have JK(the housekeeper) call one to pick you up from the house and usually take only 5 min.
You are walking distance(8 min down a hill,and not always a clear side walk but totally doable, I do it everyday as do most people that work or live in the area that do not have cars) to most everything you will need or want.
I am here to help as much as possible. I am usually better to answer emails or Text messages as I am usually out of the country.
