Rioguiaoficial :"The beach at Barra da Tijuca is the biggest one in the State of do Rio de Janeiro, with 14.4 Km long. Its clear green waters spread along avenida Sernambetiba avenue and go as far as the quarter of Recreio dos Bandeirantes.
Right at its beginning, you can find barraca do Pepe booth, the most famous booth selling fruit juices and sandwiches in the city and a meeting point for young people that live in the neighborhood. This beach is perfect for surfing, windsurfing, body boarding and fishing from the sand.
It also has many bars, restaurants and kiosks; it is lighted during the night and has a bicycle track. Starting at Avenida Ayrton Senna avenue, the beach no longer has its sidewalk, due to the fact that the region is under environmental preservation rules. In its surroundings, there is the Biological Reserve of Marapendi. "

  • We had a great stay!! The hosts are very warm and helpful and the house is comfortable. The beach near the house is one of the best ones in Rio. Thanks to Caroline and Ricardo we could visit all the beaches around in bike, very fun plan!! It is easy to get to the south of the city by bus, and it takes around 20-30 minutes if there is no traffic. But we recommend not doing it at the traffic jam hours.

  • Nossa estadia com a Caroline e Ricardo não poderia ter sido melhor. Fui com um amigo e eles nos deixaram super a vontade. A casa deles é uma gracinha, super limpa, arrumadinha e uma tranquilidade só. Como fica em um condomínio fechado é super seguro. Perto de supermercado, farmácias, barzinhos bacana e da praia. O acesso aos outros pontos da cidade é fácil com várias opções de ônibus. Recomendamos demais a estadia.

  • Caroline e Ricardo foram extremamente hospitaleiros e gentis .
    A localização da residência é muito boa. Restaurantes, bares, praia transporte publico, farmácia ficam próximos .
    A casa é bem agradável e atendeu todas minhas expectativas .
    Mas com certeza o ponto mais forte é a recepção, a educação e atenção tanto de Caroline como de Ricardo.
    Voltando ao Rio esse será meu endereço !

  • Fui com minha namorada para o Rio na casa do casal Caroline/Ricardo e gostamos muito da estadia. Eles foram muito receptivos e atenciosos, além de nos deixar a vontade para uso total do espaço. A casa é muito organizada e limpa, além de estar localizado num ponto ótimo.
    Recomendo muito este quarto e espero voltar em breve para revê-los!

  • I was in Barra de Tijuca (Cidade de Artes) for a conference. There were buses and taxis to go everywhere though none of the taxi drivers knew how to find the condominium so getting back was a bit of a hassle. We usually had to get off a few blocks away and walk back across roads with very high traffic which was not so great in the dark and with a baby. Buses in Rio need some conditioning! The transport system is a puzzle even to most residents. Its all do-able at the end of the day.
    The room is simple but comfortable. Good wifi! It was excellent to have a kitchen since I usually got back too late to go anywhere. There's a supermarket (Mundial) 5 min away for supplies. The whole place is more the rustic types with a rain forest canopy starting from their backyard! The patio is just lovely to hang out in the evening and the security system makes it pretty safe. Its about a 20-30 min walk to the Barra beach across those busy roads. The trick is to get to the beach early in the morning and just hang out the whole day :)
    Unfortunately I didn't have too much time to do anything with Caroline - but everything was as promised and went off well. They weren't home when we arrived but had arranged for someone to meet us, hand over keys etc. Once they came back, it was wonderfully easy going with them. Wish we had had more time together...

  • It's quiet, it's wonderful, it's the house of Caroline and Ricardo. At the foot of the forest and a nice environment, we enjoyed our stay and loved little Lola (cat) and the little mokey who was stopping by for banana breakfast. Thanks again and an absolute recommendation.

Ancienne fonctionnaire, j'ai quitté mon travail pour rejoindre Ricardo, mon concubin carioca, en décembre 2012, et vivre sous le soleil de Rio. De sa maison familiale, nous avons voulu faire un gîte, où nous pourrions recevoir touristes du monde entier, dans la simplicité et la bonne humeur . Si vous voulez découvrir Rio, en profitant d'un cadre plus "bucolique" que le centre, ou les quartiers d'Ipanéma ou Copacabana, nous serons ravis de vous accueillir dans notre famille pour quelques jours ....
