This property is a must for lovers of wild natural beauty, tranquility and wildlife. Built over 3 floors and set in its own pretty walled garden, this apartment has comanding 360 views over the ocean, river and mountains. Whales, seals, penguins, turtles and mantas may be seen from its ocean terraces and owls and other birds of prey visit the gardens daily - whilst at the back the kingfishers, cormorants and herons fish in the river.
The property is ideal for a romantic break such as a honeymoon - or even a party group (as is secluded and on the beach) - but mostly for those who love nature.
Perhaps the most beautiful feature is the top 90 sq m terrace with 360 degree views and its own kitchen, bathroom and barbecue oven and at night you can see the milky way falling into the ocean.
The master bedroom and very large lounge look onto ocean facing terraces.
The ground floor has an additional large en suite poolside double bedroom.
All the bedrooms have ceiling fans and air conditioning and plenty of closet space
The property is enclosed and secluded within its own high walls - up to 3 vehicles may be brought inside. We have a new pool - 7m x 3.5m and it is from 1m to 2m in depth. The pool is AYOR please be very careful after drinking or with children. There is a bar area next to the pool with a fridge, sink and portable BBQ unit - so you can choose an ocean terrace or poolside BBQ!
The gardens around the pool are attractive and well established and attract a lot of bird life
We love animals and have 2 rescue dogs and 2 rescue cats, all are friendly and all live outside.
The dogs are called Stormie (white) and Naomi (black). They love to be taken for long walks along the canal or sea.
The cats are Uhtred (tortoiseshell) and Reggie (black and white)
We have a caseiro or caretaker, his name is Eden - he has a separate flat on the property. He will look after the animals, the garden and swimming pool.
He is also a taxi driver and can support your trip as you require.
Our housekeeper, Rose, can organise cleaning or washing for you and sometimes stays in Edens flat.
Both Eden and Rose can provide services at reasonable rates - these include a supermarket trip over the mountain, airport transfer, city trip, service wash, linen change, house clean etc., if you are interested.
Either ourselves or Eden will welcome you and show you around the property.
The village of Recanto de itaipuacu is charming in the Brazilian style with a number of restaurants, bars and buses to Rio.
