Marica is a sleepy little coastal town just 60 min from the heart of Rio de Janeiro. Offering the best of both worlds, it provides residents with the tranquility of a small fishing village and also easy access to Brasil's second largest city less than an hour away. An excellent location for those looking for a quiet and friendly "home away from home". Enjoy the calm serenity of the areas numerous lakes, the grand beauty of it's miles of open ocean beaches or trek into the nearby mountains to spend the day lounging in the natural pools of the local water falls and exploring the miles or trails. Within 2 hours is Buzios, the quaint seaside town made famous by Bridget Bardot who visited there in the 70's to escape her fans. For those who like peaceful surroundings, our beach home at Guaratiba which is located just 15 minutes from the town of Marica, is the perfect place to
relax and unwind. Within walking or a short drive, there are small cafes, grocery stores, a fresh vegetable market and bakery.
We spent a wonderful time at Bob's beach house. He is a great host and was always available to help us and is a very nice person to deal with. About the house itself, it is really beautiful and have a great view of the beach. There are just a little issues, like the ceiling fans that are a little old and not working properly, and one of the big doors in the living room were closed because Bob did not had the keys. So we imagined being in the pool and seeing the beach on the other side, but it was not possible and a bit frustrating, and also open both big doors would help the ocean winds to get in and refresh the house. But I think it's just very easy things to fix (also, we made the reservation one day before arriving, so Bob had no time to prepare. Our fault, and we are glad that he did everything he could to make it happen), and overall the house is very well equiped and confy, and we would love to come back another time, because it was a great experience and we enjoyed very very much. Great! Thank you Bob!
House is exactly as pictured and described. I've personally recommended this property to many of my friends in Rio looking for a great getaway from the city without travelling for hours. Bob was super easy to deal with and the onsite care taker was helpful.
