A Cottage in a quiet location, with a stunning view to the sea, mountains and the forest.
300m from the Cottage is a Bus Stop with several lines that will take you everywhere in Rio de Janeiro.
It is less than 10min away by foot from the beach.

The space

This is a small house in our main house lot. The house has a view to the sea and to the mountain around it (this is the mountain where people go for hang-gliding, so on the weekend the sky is very colorful with all the gliders). Since it is very close to the rain forest you can hear and see small monkeys, tucans and many kinds of birds.
The location is ideal for scholars at PUC University in Gavea or in Barra, or for anyone having to work in Barra da Tijuca and/or writers.
It is 200 m away from the main street with several bus connections, a taxi stand, a supermarket, a catholic church, and 350 meters away from the beach. The elegant Fashion Mall is 1000 m away.
The house is about 35 sq. meters. It has a living room that is open to the sleeping room, a small kitchen, a bathroom and a terrace with a hammock. There are a few set of stairs to reach the cottage.
It can accommodate up to 4 people (there is a sofa that turns into a double bed), but ideally it is good for two people.
There is a High Speed Internet Connection and Cable TV.

Free parking on premises

Marie and I stayed at Philip's little cottage perched up on the hill of his amazing house. The views were stunning and clear and even though there's no direct sunlight per se, it's super bright! Philip and his family welcomed us and were quick to tend to the few niggles we encountered: a problem with the Internet was resolved quickly as well as a problem with the bath rod. Cheers Philip for the welcome! Enjoy the Copa do Mundo and good luck Germany!

I stayed at the Little Cottage for about a week on vacation in Rio mainly to hang glide. This turned out to be a great decision as Philips little place is modern and clean, situated very conveniently from the launch, LZ and beach and is also in a very secure safe gated neighborhood. The view was amazing and I often woke up to see hand gliders and para gliders soaring high above the cottage right out the window, what a great way to wake up! The surroundings are quiet and you can hear the ocean at night. Would highly recommend this to anyone not wanting to spend and arm and a leg in the busy tourist areas and is a no brainer for pilots wanting to enjoy flying over Rio. Thanks Philip..... I will be back!

Philip e sua família são ótimas pessoas, interagem com naturalidade com os hóspedes, respeitando a privacidade dos mesmos. A casa corresponde ao anunciado, arrumada com muito bom gosto, arejada e bem iluminada. O silêncio, a vista e a segurança estão num padrão muito superior ao que se costuma encontrar numa grande cidade como o Rio de Janeiro. Os bons serviços do Jadir podem ser combinados à parte para quem quiser que a casa seja limpa e a roupa lavada e passada.

Tranquilo, charmoso, aconchegante, uma vista divina e muito verde! O que mais uma paulistana a trabalho pode desejar? Praticidade, um excelente anfitrião, privacidade, muita segurança (guaritas, portões) e o Kim, o labrador mais carismático que conheci, muito carinhoso e educado! Sobre o bairro, para quem conhece pouco o RJ, tudo fecha às 22h nas redondezas (ou antes). Melhor fazer compras mais pesadas no caminho. As fotos representam exatamente a casa, muito bem cuidada e cheia de estilo. E no verão deve ser melhor ainda pois é bem fresca. A avenida principal realmente é muito próxima. Enfim, tudo foi muito tranquilo e nossa estadia fantástica! Agradecemos ao Philip e ao Kim, e esperamos ter mais tempo para explorar o local na próxima viagem.
