Tropical Bohemian Beach House near Rio
Als ich im Rio-Interview mit Clara zum ersten Mal Bilder vom Tropical Bohemian Beach House gesehen habe, war ich sofort verliebt. Diese Haus ist ein Traum. Die Architektur, die Einrichtung, die Lage, der Garten, die Aussicht – hier stimmt einfach alles. Und weil sich Clara, Fabian und ihre Kinder in dem Haus auch noch total wohl gefühlt haben, war klar, dass wir die Unterkunft auf IOML präsentieren wollen.
Der Besitzer Marc ist Architekt und hat das Haus zusammen mit seinem Vater ursprünglich für seine eigene Familie geplant und gebaut. Es ist deshalb nicht nur wahnsinnig schön, sondern auch noch sehr familienfreundlich. Das Haus bietet genügend Platz für sechs Personen und im Garten gibt es sogar ein kleinen Spielplatz mit Klettergerüst für die Kids. Der nächste Strand ist in 5 Gehminuten zu erreichen. Mehr Infos gibt es unten und Kontakt nehmt ihr am besten über Airbnb auf.
Marc und Aga über ihr Haus und die Umgebung:
This place will seduce you. It did entice us. As soon as we discovered this quiet fishermen village, surrounded by the best beaches in Rio de Janeiro we dreamt of building a family house. Barra de Guaratiba is only 40 km from Ipanema and 55 km away from Downtown. On a normal day, avoiding rush hour, one takes 50 minutes to get there.
Its a very safe neighborhood , with a charming small-town feel ,a clean local beach 5 min walk from our place and a beautiful sunset across the ocean!
The other surrounding beaches of this área like Prainha , Grumari, Praia do Meio are covered with native vegetation (national park) full of birds and small animals. The beaches have fine,white sand and ocean water of the best quality in Rio. The good waves are very much appreciated by the surfers. Truly a paradise! Some are reached only by foot(40mins hike) others by car(10mins) from our house.
Barra de Guaratiba is considered the best Gastronomical Center for seafood restaurants. The fresh crabs come from a beautiful nearby mangrove – you can take one of our kayaks and explore it all by yourself. You can also visit the home and park of Roberto Burle Marx the famous landscaper/botanist only 10 mins drive from the village.
Our house was designed by my architect husband and his father. Its has all the qualities of ecological, sustainable home with solar energy , green roof and grey water treatment and comfort of a family beach house. We offer you a large wooden deck with an amazing view on the ocean and the beach below. A vast garden packed with tropical plants,trees and flowers. A unique house tastefully furnished with a large living room and fully equipped kitchen. There are 3 bedrooms with balconies and 2 bathrooms offer a comfortable retreat.
Our house is positioned on a hill – from the village square (with supermarket and bus stop) its will take you 10min to walk up or 3 min to drive up!
We are next to Recreio and Barra da Tijuca, close to Rio Centro Convention Center and the Olympic Village of Olympic Games 2016.
There is a garage for 2 cars at the top of the property with a stone path leading down through the gardens to the main house.
its a quiet and safe neighborhood with amazing views of the ocean , the mangrove and the forests. The local beach has small waves and during the week is quiet, however on weekends it fills up with cariocas eager to cool off and enjoy the seafood. There is a small supermarket , fish market, bakery,pharmacy, and many seafood restaurants.
Nearby there are two wonderful museums, Sitio Burle Marx ,and Museo do Pontal, I highly recommend visiting them. For relaxing or sports there are several amazing beaches and a mangrove in the reserve. To name a few of the sports available: hiking,surfing,fishing,kayaking or stand-up board ,boat trips ,etc…
There is a bus stop at the bottom of the hill which will connect you to other buses going throughout the city. It is a steep hill to the house And takes about 10 minutes to walk up. There are moto-taxis available , but I would recommend renting a car for getting around the neighborhood and day trips to downtown Rio.
The local supermarket is small and basic, so for guests staying several days it would be best to food shop in Recreio (15 km) which has many large supermarkets and malls.
