The property was in an excellent location on an island in the lagoon, short walk to the beach after a brief ride in a boat to the mainland, lovely setting and a joy to be in nature with birds to wake you in the morning. Silvia was extremely accommodating in making arrangements for an English speaking driver to meet me... More

We sandwiched a few days at Utropico between weekends in Santa Teresa and Ipanema. From the wonderful warm Caipirinhas welcome to waving us off like old friends, our host Silvia was charming and helpful throughout. We slept well in our beautiful, comfortable cool bed and woke to a good morning meow from Nikki the cat who was there each day... More

After searching high and low for accommodation in Rio during Carnaval season, I stumbled across this little gem on Tripadvisor. First and foremost, I have to say the hostess, Silvia, was incredibly charming and gracious. She made me feel very welcome. The story of how she and her husband designed and built the house of reclaimed materials is amazing. I... More

A nice place away from stress and hectic. Nice hosts who always spend time for tips and tricks to go around. Breakfast is super fresh and great at every day. I cant think about anything negative. It takes 5 minutes via a small boat to go in and out but this is something very special and on the positive site.... More

A great oasis, very peaceful place in the midst of Rio. House is made with "grande gusto", it is very beautifully decorated. The view is wonderful, the river, birds etc. Here you can really relax - a rare opportunity in a huge and densely populated city like Rio! But the best thing are the people! Silvia is a wonderful charismatic... More

Its been a week since we have been back from Rio, where we spent a week at Utropico. It was our first trip to Brazil and after 24hours of travel we were most pleased to be greeted by Silvia, Francisco and Paulinho. Utropico is an amazing retreat from the big City of Rio. It is quiet, calm and very relaxing.... More
