We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We had no idea how amazing this place was until we got there. The photos on their website although beautiful, do not really show the beauty of the surroundings. We stayed for only one week but wish we had booked it for a whole month. Out only complaint has nothing to do with our stay but rather with the unreliable public transportation system in Rio. We'll rent a car or budget for more taxis rides the next time we go. We will definitely book this place again

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about our little piece of paradise in Rio. We agree that the surrounding grounds and natural beauty were not well reflected in the photos. Our goal is to post more photos on the site very soon. We would love to have you come back as soon as you can. And perhaps next time you will also get to visit our house in Buzios. see home away link: Felicidades, Edison de Mello, MD and Team

Amazing Place, very helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We arrived, dropped our bags and also our jaws when we went to the varanda. The view was absolutely stunning. We had heard about Rio's breathing taking geography and how its majestic mountains seem to be perfectly placed in relation to some of the most beautiful beaches. Well, it is true. We were blown away by the natural beauty of the city.

The penthouse as great. The owners appeared to have thought of every detail. From making sure we had our passes for the private ferry that takes on a 5-minute ride across a lake to a private beach was on the table with our awaiting us to having a maids available for us if we needed to hire one. The neighbours across the street welcomed us with a smile and did their best to communicate with us even though we spoke no Portuguese. Their son, a sweet young man by the name of Gabriel, suddenly appeared and in his perfect English made let us know that he would make himself available for any questions that we might have. Our kids jumped right in to enquire as much as they could about surfing in Barra.

Thank you Dr. Edison de Mello and Brunno Cunha fr helping make our vacation so perfect in some many ways.

PS: Word of caution: Make sure your cars are alway locked and never leave any belonging in it. We surprised a teenager looking inside our rental car as if trying to find a way to break in
