Accommodation – English speaking hosts
OK, so the Rio Olympics are nearly upon us, and you are looking for somewhere to base yourself in Brazil. Have a look what we have on offer here and get in touch with us (the property owners – in the first instance email firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a reply below) if you like what you see and want to make a reservation.
With English as such a major international language, to have English speaking hosts will be important for many Olympic visitors to Rio in a couple of months time. The combination of an Englishman (retired) and his Brazilian, Portuguese-teacher, wife may be of specific appeal from the point of view of discovering your host country and solving potential problems? And the fact that we own comfortable, accessible and modestly priced accommodation may clinch it for you?!
We are less than an hour from Rio International Airport at one property and well under two hours at our other property) and you can enjoy a few days of quiet time in the lovely Lakes region close to Rio. For the Olympics themselves the ferry trip across Guanabara Bay to the vibrant city of Rio is both easy and delightful. You can book one or more rooms in our properties for a specific period – OR – you can rent a whole property for a group of up to 12 (twelve) people for the whole Olympic period.
Our Niteroi property provides easy access to the great Maracana Stadium across the bay and all the Olympic venues. Also there are regular express bus services direct into Rio de Janeiro easily accessible from our Jacone property. Indeed, the grass for the Maracana Stadium was grown a mile or so from our jacone home!!
All the accommodation is provided at a high comfort level specification; we have large terraces with long views, BBQ areas, large high quality kitchens, all the bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms and most have air-conditioning. We have small swimming pools to keep cool in at both properties and excellent garage accommodation if you choose to hire a car for the duration.
