The space

I rent a separate guesthouse, a little house in my garden with a separate entrance. It consists of one room with a king-size bed and a separate bathroom.
Beside my separate guesthouse you can rent a suite in my house, also with a king-size bed and a separate bathroom.
My house is located nearby a lagoon, 100m distance. It has a friendly, sunny garden, with a small terrace, where you can take your breakfast. The Lagoon of Araruama is well known for its warm waters and its high salinity, one of the largest lagoon in the world!. It has one of the largest wind streaks in the country. It’s a really paradise for kite surfers! You’ll find a kite surfers school next to my house.
The distance of my house to Rio de Janeiro is 100 km, to the next bigger city – Araruama - is 7 km and to Cabo Frio and Búzios appr. 50 km.
It takes 2 hours by car from the international Airport Galeão in Rio (GIG) to my house. From the Airport in Rio de Janeiro you can take a bus to Niterói or to Araruama and from there also a bus, direction Cabo Frio (the station where you have to get off is called LAKE VIEW), or you take a taxi from Araruama directly to my house.
In any case I'm always available for my guests with my local knowledge and language skills e. g. to rent a car, to do shopping, to search for medical care, to give tips for trips, etc.
If it is required I can also teach portuguese for foreigners.

By request I can prepare a special dinner for you. I am cooking international and vegetarian food also with regard to the breakfast. The price includes a rich breakfast with fresh fruits and fresh juice, homemade bread, cake and jams. As far as possible I use organic products from the region.

I don’t have TV, but wireless internet (WiFi).

I'm ayurvedic therapist and offer massage, shirodhara and consultation.

We had a very pleasant stay at Barbaras house. The room/guesthouse was nice and the breakfast was exceptionally good with homemade bread, juice, jam and special pancakes. Homemade granola to the yogurt and lots of it all. Barbara herself is a very lovely person. She helped us rent a car to see the area and she had many good recommendations about what to do and see. You won´t regret your stay! Ove Schroll

Are you adventurous, eager to discover local life, and don't mind a short a drive/ride to the most popular destinations in the region? This place is for you then. Situated within 30-40 minutes of Cabo Frio, Buzios and white sand beaches (e.g., Praia Seca) on the south side of Laguna Araruama, you are within reach of all touristic destinations as well as numerous small towns along the way. The house is exactly as described. It's located in a safe area and numerous restaurants, stores and other amenities are just a short drive away. Barbara is a wonderful host, responsive and courteous. Her delicious breakfasts will jump-start anyone's day and she is always around to help and answers any questions. I had a lovely stay and was able to visit various carnival parties ("blocos"), see how locals really live, and also enjoy my time in Buzios, Cabo Frio and Arraial do Cabo. Highly recommended!

For anyone who is looking for a soulful experience, look no further. The house is nestled in a quit holiday neighborhood, next to the beautiful Araruama lagoon. It is a little isolated, but still easy enough to get to the neighboring city's. There is no air conditioning, but thanx to the evening breeze, there is really no need. Your host, the lovely Barbara, will leave you feeling relaxed and well nourished. by the time you leave, chances are, you will feel healthier and more at peace.

Barbara's Guest House is a wonderful place to come to Brazil. 100 meters from the magnificent Lagoon Araruama, Barbara created a paradise where we felt so well. From here, we have made great trips to some different beaches, which have given us a beautiful first impression of Brazil. Barbara and Emilio are very congenial host who gave us good tips. We desperately want to mention the delicious breakfast with fresh fruit, homemade jam and Brazilian "pancakes". Thank you Barbara, and thank you Emilio for the great entry into the Brazilian Feeling. Best wishes, Karen and Kristian from Hamburg.
