Wonderful get away experience, if you are looking for a quiet life away from the city. But a boat and 15 mins walk will take you to one of the best beaches in a Rio. Silvia was such a wonderful host, just ask and she'll arrange anything for you, from taxi services to tours of Rio! Will definitely be back if u have the chance!
The first highlight of our trip was Silvia - she was really an excellent hostess that looked after us to the finest detail - she assisted in organising boats, taxis and advice on all the best places to visit and eat at. She should be awarded hostess of the year!! Second highlight was the beautiful loft which catered to all or needs and was tastefully decorated. The surroundings are beautiful and the capivaras swimming in the river and grazing on the banks are super special. It was such a lovely place to escape from the busy and congested streets of Rio. My husband had to attend a meeting at Rio Centro and it was no trouble to get there at all with Silvia's help. Only a 5 minute boat trip which is scenic takes you to the main land. By the time we left we almost felt like family and were sad to leave. If you are looking at this establisment right now, look no further - this is the place!
Lamentablemente para mi, el viaje se cancelo. Espero tener la oportunidad de organizar otro y sin duda ire a conocer su lugar magico!
We spent 4 nights at Silvia's beautiful villa and it was definitely the best time we had in Brazil. Silvia is such a wonderful host that she provided us with more help than we could ask for. She helped us plan New Year's Eve outing to Copacabana beach, from getting tickets to arranging transportation, Silvia was so thoughtful that every little detail was perfect. We had such an incredible night at the New Year's Eve party! I can't thank Silvia enough for creating this life time memory for us.
Thank you, Silvia! We hope to see you again :)

Simply PERFECT. Beatiful house, wonderful hosts and fabulous experience. We never imagined that we would have such a wonderful time at the loft in the lagoon and we definitely did. From our stay in Buzios and Paraty, this was the best experience. From the moment we booked the loft, Silvia was always responsive to my emails and requests. She gave us recommendations about booking a car, gave us special instructions and even asked us the type of food that our 1 year old baby eats (which was a really nice detail from her). She offered us the special transportation service that they use (Paulo) and we accepted it. Paulo picked us up at the airport on time and took us to the house (we dropped the car at the gas station) and he took us to the chalana boat that took us to the house (5 min from the gas station). Our baby was fascinated with the chalana boats (he had more fun watching the chalana boats than been at the beach or anything else). When we arrived, they received us with complimentary coconut water, caipirinas and homemade food for the baby. They really made us feel at home. The house is on an island so the experience is really cool. Paulino (a great guy that works with them) and Marina (Silvia's daughter - super cool) took us on a boat tour to the area. We even ate at a restaurant bar in the island by boat. The loft is next to Silvia's house and next to the studio. The three houses are beutiful, made with recycable materials and the sculptures are made by Silvia and her husband Francisco (who makes the best caipirina I have ever had). Everything was very clean. The space is really big, two floors, two bathrooms, plenty of space and beds. Breakfast was delicious, Paulino served our daily breakfast in the garden where we could see the chalana boats crossing. The baby loved everything and we too. They have a menu on the fridge in case you would like to order something in the house during the day. We used the pool and went to Barra beach at Pepe's which was really nice. Marina gave us daily recommendations on what to do in Rio with maps and she went with us to Copacabana New Year Party in the rain (the best). We had such a wonderful time. Thanks Utropico for every single detail and made our stay a perfect vacation.
Fantastic house with fantastic people:) We can recomend the house if you like something spesial and extaordinary!!! Silvia and her husband are fantastic hosts and we had a great time in Rio:). When we come back to Rio we will stay at this place. Big hug from Edesio, Jo and Morten
