LUXURY HOUSE ON ISLAND WITH GOLF CLUB VIEW

Barra da Tijuca House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom With Lake And Mountain View

Spacious and bright house, comfortably sleeps 8 people. Just 5 min (by boat and walking) to the best surf point of Barra beach - Praia do Pepê. Easy access to public transportation to all parts of town - only 10 minutes by car to Ipanema and Leblon. A paradise for water sports, golf practice and nature watching.

The house is on Ilha Primeira, an island in Tijuca Lagoon, across the canal from Itanhangá Golf Club. It has a large dining room for 8 people; a TV room with two couches; a lounge with two sofabeds; 3 bedrooms (two suites) with air conditioner ; 3 full bathrooms; a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, electric sandwich maker and coffee machine; and a laundry room equipped with washer and dryer. In the front garden - with a large veranda, a barbecue place, a shower and a deck - the lounge chairs and hammocks are perfect to relax and enjoy the view, watching the birds and the canal boats pass by, in total harmony with nature.

Forget Copacabana and Ipanema! Barra da Tijuca was elected by the CARIOCAS the best beach in Rio by far. It is 14 km of white sand and clear emerald green water, ideal for kite surfing, stand up paddling, biking and skating. Right south of Barra, you will find Reserva, Prainha and Grumari, some paradisiac beaches, sought by surfers worldwide. Tijuca Tropical Forest, the National Park, is 10 minutes away and offers trails, climbing and hang gliding. Barra Point is a mall just 2 minutes by boat from the house, with movie theaters and fine restaurants. BarraShopping, Village Mall, Downtown, Citta America and New York City Center are other malls just a few minutes by bus from Ilha Primeira, with great theaters, restaurants and exclusive shops. Bus and taxi stops are available right off the island, with many options of transportation to all parts of town. Copacabana is about 20 minutes away, depending on the traffic.

The neighborhood is peaceful and friendly – typically carioca, with some fishermen and even artists. One can experience the carioca way of life just by strolling down the alleys inside the island with their flowers and colorful houses.

There is no bridge to the island. The only way to get there is by boat - around 1 or 2 minutes to the house. Canal boats – CHALANAS - transport residents and visitors for about U$ 1,00 or U$2,00, depending on the route. They run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can be requested at any time by phone, like a taxi. The house has its own motor boat, which can be available to the guests, if necessary.

Tijuca Lagoon is a preserved environment, rich in many species of plants and animals. Herons, ducks, even capybaras and alligators are commonly seen in its waters and shores.

I am a film director, currently living in my hometown Ribeirão Preto (São Paulo). I lived in Rio de Janeiro for twenty years when I graduated from film school and met my wife, Luciana. CANALZINHO 35, our property in Rio, is a very special place for us: that’s where we got married and started our family. We love to stay there with the kids when we visit grandma in Rio. We also love to have our friends over for a barbecue or pizza and show them our unique vicinity.

FRED BENEDINI purchased this house in 2000

GOLF CLUB CANAL is a comfortable and silent house. The wooden floor makes it very cozy. Its proximity to the water and trees guarantees cool temperatures inside even in the hottest summer and we rarely turn on the air conditioners. Once you are off the island, it is a 10 minute walk to Barra da Tijuca beach or, if you prefer, 20 min stand up paddling from the house. Easy access to ITANHAGA GOLF CLUB, just across the canal; 10 minutes by bus to SAO CONRADO for paragliding and hang-gliding. Nearby bus stops make it easy to go to Leblon, Ipanema, Copacabana, Sugar Loaf, Corcovado and many other touristic sites.

GOLF CLUB CANAL is a blessed paradise! Total security and privacy without bars on the windows and front yard. The sounds of birds and an inviolable mountain view provide a total communion with Nature around, interrupted only sometimes by the lazy come and go of the Chalanas (canal boats).
