Holiday accommodation with an absolute beachfront position, reasonable private rental rates, close to all restaurants and an easy hour drive to the tropical, vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro.
For an inspirational getaway in one of the most amazing countries in the world, Marica Beach House is unsurpassed.
Without a doubt, it is blessed with natural beauties – from gently rolling hills to unique mountain peaks; from a canal to four interconnected lakes; from the Atlantic Ocean to 45 kilometers of white sandy beaches; from verdant meadows to a town center that continues to show growth and positive changes.
It is about an hour from the famous city of Rio de Janeiro, world-renowned beaches such as Copacobana, Ipanema, Flamengo, Botafogo and Cabo Frio, the Rio international airport, and the must-see tourist attractions Statue of Christ and Sugar Loaf Mountain where one is confronted with breathtaking and incomparable sceneries. It is only 35 minutes from its neighbor city Niteroi, which has a population of over 1,000,000 people.
Maricá, a city of 75,000 people, is a very safe, laid back, and tranquil beach-town location. Maricá is large enough to have all the things you will need from day to day, yet small enough to alleviate all of the headaches of city traffic and high tourist prices. If you want a place which has not been tainted by thousands of tourists and want to experience where the middle class Brazilians go to holiday, then Maricá is perfect. Everywhere you walk you will be greeted and smiled at by the locals and everyone will go out of their way to make sure you are ok and give you a smile.
This simple 'Villa Style' accommodation is immediately welcoming with a huge white sandy beach and vistas of the Atlantic Ocean at your doorstep.
The amazing views filter into the living room and master bedroom. Its a smallish white rendered house with a limestone front porch and tiled floors which are both practical and attractive in this home beside the seaside. Affordable and simple beachfront accommodation perfect for getting away from the hustle and bustle of Rio de Janeiro to a place we like to call the 'Real Brazil'.
There are two bedrooms; both with ceiling fans. Open the wooden window shutters to catch the sea breezes and let the beach views inside. The kitchen has a stove, fridge, sink and all the essential appliances you need to make holiday catering and entertaining a pleasure.
Two bedrooms - a double and a twin with two singles. From inside the double bedroom, which has a large wooden window, the outlook is directly onto the long white sandy beach of Praia de Guaratiba.
In the living area is a lounge which fold's down into a smallish double bed (quite hard so do not totally recommend for sleeping but it has been done) and a dining room table and chairs.
There is a grassed area infront of the house where you can lay down a towel and rest here facing sea views and cooling breezes.
Marica Beach House's covered outdoor limestone porch is perfect for entertaining, and its uninterrupted views of the ocean make leisurely dining and drinking a must. Buy some local Brazilian beer and and wander only a few metres to stand with your toes in the white sand.
A hammock is setup on the front porch for your relaxation pleasure, so close your eyes to the sound of the waves and take it all in!
