Eduardo and Philip are amazing hosts. They went out of their way to make us comfortable. The location is perfect. Far enough out of the city to have a relaxing country feel, yet close enough to enjoy all that Rio has to offer. Highly recommended.

About the neighbourhood
Recanto de Itaipuacu (our beach) is the nearest truly tranquil beach to the centre of the city of Rio. Recanto is a small fishing village with a good supermarket, simple Brazilian beachside restaurants and bars.
The main attraction of this house is its stunning natural setting, the house almost seems to be IN the South Atlantic Ocean! At the rear of the property there is a canal with a very rich birdlife (every day we see owls, kingfishers, cormorants, herons and many others)
The village is quiet and peaceful. It is ideal for a group of friends or a family who want to be together in a tranquil retreat from the city life. Rio is not far away but the property is not recommended if people want to go into the city every day!
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Rio de Janeiro Airport (GIG): 45.0 km
There is a variety of road transportation between the village and Downtown Rio de Janeiro. Times vary considerably depending on the time of day, the mode of transport and the traffic. In average traffic it takes about 1.5 hours by bus and an hour by taxi (taxis are quite reasonable in Brazil).
Uber now operates a cheap and reliable service in the area
There is a luxury bus that goes directly from the village (the terminus) to downtown Rio and the tube - very comfortable, it takes about one and a half hours.
Our caseiro, Eden, is also a taxi driver and will do an airport transfer for you for RS 200. We strongly recommend this on arrival
