Awesome time was had

This place was fabulous, the staff was exceptionally helpful, and the place was clean, spacious, safe and beautiful views. I definitely recommend this place for anyone travelling to Brazil. Your chef prepares what ever you want to eat. This place was neatly tucked away up in the mountains in a secure gated community. Former home of Brazilian soccer super star Pelé. Place was tastefully decorated and beautifilly maintained.

A gem in the hills of Joa, near Rio

Wonderful gem of a property, which felt like our own private villa. Christo the manager is welcoming and so helpful - and make sure to get a few of Jorge’s caipirinhas, they are the best and most authentic in all of Rio! Oh and the chef - creates a masterpiece at dinnertime, there’s no need to leave such tranquility when you have paradise all around you!

5/5 Excellent

Experience of a lifetime !

Amazing and priceless ! We experienced living like Rio's elite, living in a private Mansion with staff dedicated just to us. We became friends with the owner, the chef and the GM.

Pros: Location, staff and facility !

Location: Near "Prainha" the only private beach in Rio that is clean and close by in my opinion. It inside a gated community and hence safe !
