vacation rental description


6 Bedrooms + Library (add'l sleeping) 6 full bathrooms Maximum Capacity 21


The villa is one of the most unusual rentals available in the center of Rio de Janeiro. It looks/feels like a old mansion that has sat on the little gated street for a century. Yet is is only six years old. It was designed and built by Mike (a NYC design prof/hotel school grad) and run by Adan (a native of Mexico City transplanted to Rio while his wife completes her PhD). The two principals + craftsmen friends use the villa as a design lab to show their work to clients of their architectural and interior design business. It is ALWAYS a work in progress and the interior photos are apt to change from month to month. It is a high spirited and very fun spot for guests to stay while working or visiting in Rio.

In only this July and August we have thrown a villa wedding reception with tables on the stone street, a National Geographic film team, a family reunion for a former US naval attache serving in 1940s Rio, and served as a set for a new Brazilian movie with back up team of 56

villa rental amenities


The villa is available as a bare bone rental with only one maid to change linens and make beds for guests who want total privacy. On the other hand - the villa has a huge staff for the family or group who wants and needs lots of attention. The daily rental fee depends on the services guests need and is priced very well as compared to the five star hotel. we aim to top the service offered anywhere else in our city. Our planning starts with our first answers to inquiries. We can offer continental or full breakfasts, lunch, snacks, barbecues, and full sit down or buffet dinners. We are quite used to corporate, business, diploomatic, and family parties. We know the best purveyors for buying fresh ingredients, fine meats, great fish, etc. It is a fun spot and we love to throw a party for you.
 
We are in the process of developing an ala carte menu which will be published on our website the first week of September.

Adan, our concierge, has a staff of drivers, tour guides, packaged tour operators, and can help with detailed planning for your trip - from airport pick up until you depart (and even ship those things your forgot back home !!)
 
Mike handles all the email requests and helps guests who do not know the city and country (or south America) on how to arrange their time based on their interests.

One of the Villa staff members is a jazz musician and knows the RIo night life scene. Another is a set designer for Brazilian movies and knows what is hot in town at the moment.

IT has been a busy past three months with a total redo of the villa + movie shoots + a lot of big events BUT we will have a complete on-line villa photo scrapbook, manual, and menus within 6 weeks. The villa is closed for two weeks in August as we are redoing all of our wood floors and rooms as well as installing new wallpapers and lighting in many areas.

BEFORE YOU MAKE AN INQUIRY-
 
1. we are totally rented for all of the WORLD CUP PERIOD - we can only suggest properties much smaller than the villa
 
2. we can not offer rentals less than 5 days for large groups - it is just too time consuming to do a changeover after 21 guests have been with us for a short period. There are no short term stays for large groups at regular rack rental fees
 
3. although we can house up to 21 - there is only room for 6 couples in total privacy. 21 is the maximum but 12 to 16 more ideal
 
4. we can for the very large group use the villa + our other penthouse also advertised on homeaway + neighboring pousada and hostels

5. rental rates VARY according to the number of guests and services requested. We are indeed an economical alternative for a large group and offer features not easily available in most aparament or villa rentals.
 
6. we LOVE a party BUT do not rent to groups who do not agree to abide by the villa quiet hours. We are in a family neighborhood and love our neighbors. We do not rent to any group without asking lots of questions as we wish to make sure our staff, our villa, and our neighborhood are respected.

The villa is probably one of the most unusual rentals available in Rio de Janeiro. It looks like a very old mansion that has sit on the little gated street for a century. Yet is only six years old. It was designed and built by Mike (a NYC dentist-grad of hotel restaurant school) and run by Adan (a native of Mexico City transplanted to Rio while his wife completes her PhD). The two principals + many artist friends use the villa as a design lab to show their work to clients of their architectural and interior design business. It is ALWAYS a work in progress and the interior photos are apt to change from month to month. It is a high spirited and very fun spot for guests to stay while working or visiting in Rio.
 
In the past 6 weeks we have organized a wedding party with street tables.
 
We have guested the National Geographic film team, a family reunion, a shooting location for new Brazilian popular movie and a US group of teen dancers performing thru Brasil

activities and attractions in Rio de Janeiro Brazil

 

Basically the villa is organized on 4 levels around a central atrium. All rooms open to the central atrium via balconies, gardens, or a glass roof which opens to the night sky and marvelous moon views.

Level one is a grand entrance foyer off the little street which we use for parties.  A great modern kitchen with every possible culinary gadget, huge island, business center, and enough antique porcelain to serve 100. Off the kitchen is the new atrium (morning room) and a grand dining room. The atrium fireplace is undergoing restoration by the artist who completed faux painting in the restored Teatro Municpal Opera house. The ceiling opens electronically and the second floor balcony gives way to 3 bedroom suites - all with sitting areas and marble deluxe baths with jacuzzis. The dining room is great for a family having breakfast or a sit down for 24. Off these rooms is the wood paneled library with TV/Cinema area and our very special antique Titanic model which the house staff presented one day to the owner.

There is a smaill stone powder room off the back stone stairhall.

The second floor suites open by pairs of antique french doors or stained glass windows to the atrium. Each room makes for a great private sleeping and enterntaining space as sofas and easy chairs make it comfortable. These suites get heavy use and are usually redecorated, painted, wallpapered, slipcovered continually duriing the year.

The third floor is accessed by a stone stairway (with our little Budda in the corner) and panels of native birds and stained glass and a collection of both naif art and the owners original interior sketches for the house on the walls.

Once yo
Off the first part of the garden is a trellised walkway of local honeysuckle and some fresh fruit trees as well as a little herb garden. There are two small little cabanas off of this walkway which are kind of like 18th centruy wood ship cabins. They share a bath with shower. They have desks with plenty of bookshelves, hundreds of books, and are comfy and cool little spots - full oc character. At the end of the garden walk is a separate building which houses the Balinese Casa - two stories with a king size loft above and huge living room below which sleeps 4 on the banquette single beds. This house has a separate bath and shower with chicken coop type windows which look thru the glass roof all the way to the first floor.
u open the huge door to the third and fourth floor levels - you see the great little pool with its lion fountain,
 
a small sitting area with our birds in cages and the local birds drinking out of the feeders. The garden is ALWAYS a work in process as the plantings change continually. We try to keep it in flower year around with hanging planters, placas of bromiliads and orchids. THeir is a barbecue there and the staff lights the gas lanterns at sunset
