Pool bedroom - Ground floor, opens onto garden terrace, double bed with great new mattress, AC, ceiling fan, en suite shower room. Lounge - 2 real single beds with good new mattresses can be set up in the ocean facing lounge, alternatively these singles can be added to the bedrooms. Larger groups may be possible - please enquire. Your hosts, Eduardo and Philip, are a Brazilian/British married couple who live mostly in London, but for about 2 months of the year we live 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, Leo, who visits the house daily and takes care of the animals, plants, pool etc. He can provide support for your stay if you so choose, including driving We have 3 dogs and a cat. They all live outside, but will come in if you let them. The dogs are a useful security support but are super friendly. The cat is very friendly as well. The beach is simply stunning - tranquil, yet occasionally wild. The sea directly in front of the house is usually 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 and dishwasher- 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. More

Eduardo and Philip are amazing hosts. They went out of their way to make us comfortable. The location is perfect. Far enough out of the city to have a relaxing country feel, yet close enough to enjoy all that Rio has to offer. Highly recommended.

About the neighbourhood
Recanto de Itaipuacu (our beach) is the nearest truly tranquil beach to the centre of the city of Rio. Recanto is a small fishing village with a supermarket, simple Brazilian 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 river with a very rich birdlife (every day we see owls, kingfishers, cormorants, herons and many others) 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!
