I had a wonderful time at Casa Verde. I wanted to see different sides of Rio so spent a couple of days in Ipanema doing the faster paced things then moved to Casa Verde to enjoy the quiet and lush scenery.
The property is beautiful with spacious rooms, (some with great views to the ocean) and lush gardens. There is a lovely pool for relaxing and even a steam room.
Breakfast was plenty with cakes and pastries and Stuart and Mauricio were helpful in providing for my special dietary needs. Mauricio bakes an amazing cake which couldn't be resisted!
The gardens were lovely and sometimes you could see beautiful birds and little monkeys. Even though the property had the feeling of being more remote I could still walk down to the beach to have a meal at a cafe which was handy.
The cab fare back into town was affordable when required and I believe there is buses nearby. They also organised a fixed price airport cab for me which was really good value.
As I was traveling solo I was a little concerned about how I would manage being out of town but Stuart and Mauricio were wonderful hosts who were keen to help with any enquiries.More
