About this listing
Beautiful and comfortable house located in Barra da Tijuca, neighbour of Ecological Park, named Marapendi, with a beautiful view of the mountains and the green of the restinga. Accommodations for five, in three bedrooms w compl bath. Beach by ferry.
It's a beautiful and charming house with a very nice view, in front of The Marapendi Ecological Park, where you can see: crocodiles, local birds, and some of the Mata Atlantica animals and plants. It is located in a closed condo, with 24 hr security, with access by ferry to a beautiful beach, 22 km in extension, not crowded and very clean. We are a three store sunny house, with a small elevator (no need to carry bags), and three bedrooms with complete bathroom. One accommodates very well a couple, the other one or two persons (two twin beds), and the third one does not have a bed, but a sofa that opens up to a couple bed. All with cable TV, wifi internet and ar conditioning. The house has a large backyard, with fruit trees, a pool, sauna and barbecue facilities. If you decide to rent a car, no problem parking it in front of the house. If you rather go by public transportation, we have the BRT (modern transportation system), buses and a handful of cab companies. We can also provide lifts by car, once we arrange it in advance. We are 3 people, two of us are fluent in English.
We are very close to big local events like: Olympic games, Rio Centro, Rock in Rio, show houses, etc
The guest will have free access to the garden, the pool and sauna. They can also use the barbecue facility, once they bring their own material and leave it as they found it (that means clean). They will have the pass to use the ferry to the beach, all the previously mentioned facilities in the rooms, morning breakfast, and amazing views and quietness. We can arrange private transportation to events, to other parts of the city.
Interaction with Guests
We love to get to know new people, and share experiences and ideas. We want to make sure everyone is feeling at home, without over caring in an uncomfortable way.
We are close to the beach, close to Parque Marapendi, and 15 minutes riding distance from the largest Shopping of Rio de Janeiro, which include: cinemas, show houses, theatres, shops, medical center, restaurants, etc. It is like being in a big and fun place like Rio de Janeiro, but sleep in a calm and quiet beach resort. We have all the infrastructure needed: supermarkets, drugstores, gas station, churches, banks, food and drink places.
We have buses, BRT (Bus Rapid Transport), at walking distance. You can go anywhere from here. Besides, we have some cab companies, that are safe and honest and it is possible to schedule in advance or call anytime.
We also can provide private transportation, as an extra, previously set up.
Other Things to Note
We speak english, there are no kids at home, we have dogs, all very friendly, but we do not intend to have them around the guests. There are possibility of private transportation, the access to the international airport is easy and we are very happy to have guests around.
Nothing ilegal, like drugs. No visitors, unless previously arranged, among other things, I have to let the condo security know in advance, no pets (I already have them) and no problem with cigarettes once the smoking is done outside or in the bedroom with the door closed. And please the smoker should take care of the ashtray.
About the Host, Elizabeth
Olá, sou dermatologista, e gosto muito da minha profissão. Além disso, pratico equitação há muitos anos, adoro animais, natureza, musica, cinema e bons livros. Também gosto muito de fotografia, mas me falta competência. Morei durante 5 anos em Boston (e adorei!). Gosto de cozinhar, de conhecer pessoas e lugares diferentes, e gosto mais do dia que da noite.
Não tenho filhos, e sou viúva, na minha casa moram eu, meu primo, e meu namorado quando está no Rio.
Vai ser muito bom ter mais gente em casa.
