We welcome you to experience a stay in our spacious, heritage style, family home with it's tropical gardens, a small pool, hammocks, poolside bar and 2 indoor lounge areas - we have 1,500 sq meters of property (16,000 sq feet), over half of which is undeveloped and surrounded by remnants of Atlantic forest. The surrounding area offers magnificent views of the Tijuca National Park, Guanabara Bay, green forested hills in front of Copacabana, the 'Cristo Redentor', 'Pão de Açucar' and Botafogo neighborhood below us. Small monkeys, wild parrots, toucans and other fauna visit us daily. We also grow our own bananas, mangos, papayas, guavas and avocados on property!
The neighborhood of Botafogo is residential and not touristic allowing guests to get a true feel of the 'day to day' Carioca (local) lifestyle. There are over 15 restaurants within a 20min walk from the house and many more just a few minutes further on. A short taxi ride will even take you to the Gastronomic zone of Botafogo (about 3km from the house) famous for its restaurant fare! There are also several attractions worth visiting: the 'Museu do Indio', 'Museu de Carmen Miranda', the 'São João Batista Cemetery' (something along the lines of the famous one everyone visits in Buenos Aires), a fabulous new Art museum well worth visiting called 'Casa Daros', the 'Casa de Rui Barbosa', the community or 'Favela' of Santa Marta, and several smaller, specialized museums, besides a wealth of cinemas, neighborhood bars and 2 large shopping malls!
We are the only B&B in Rio within a 30min walk of the 2 main tourist attractions in the city and just a 20 min walk to the Botafogo metro station where you can be just about anywhere in minutes: Copacabana or Ipanema Beach in 3-10 minutes, the historic city center (museums, old churches and art galleries) in 10 minutes, the entertainment district of LAPA, even the Maracana Football stadium in 20min!
Airport Transfers are available on request - please contact us directly. Also, one of your hosts is a registered guide with the Brazilian Ministry of Tourism and we can arrange standard (or customized) tours, walks and hikes for our guests of the main attractions or of many parts of Rio off the beaten Tourist path when requested in advance.
