Cosy Restored Carioca House 2 BDR

House - Entire home/apt · Rua Visconde de Silva, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro 22271-044, Brazil

Welcome to our charming, loving historic home in one of the best neighborhoods in Rio.

The Space

I'm sure that you will love your stay in town, everyone does.
But why stay in an apartment in Copacabana as a normal tourist when you can enjoy the true carioca way of life in a lovely house.

Rany and I searched months and months to find something so special and rare. We, a franco-brazilian couple, just finished restoring a typical carioca house built in 1927. Today, we would love to share it with new friends from around the World.

The house is located in Humaitá/ Botafogo, in the Zona Sul, one of most preserved neighborhoods in Rio. A few meters of the house you have the best Argentinian restaurant in town, Tragga, a good lounge bar, Meza, and Cobal, a unique place which offers during the day an opened market (fruit, fish, flowers, wines) and during the night, restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

The house has just been restored and offers all the commodities you need, two bedrooms, both with queen size beds.
One nice living room with sofa, TV, sound system. One dining room with a big wood bar table, ready to make capirinhas.
One terrace with
All bedrooms and the living room have air conditioning and high speed wifi.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My girls and I (we were 5 in total) were really happy to stay at David's and Rany's place. The apartment was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed: from all cooking implements, hair dryer, cocktail shaker :P....and so on. David was always really helpful and made our stay enjoyable. We also loved the location of the apartment: very close to Lapa, to the beaches, to all the main sight seeings (like Christ, Sugarloaf, Downtown,...), very good restaurants next door, nice, calm and safe neighbourhood, 20-30min from the airport and main bus station, close to supermarket and pharmacy... So in any sense the location was practical, especially for tourists. I lived already as well in other neighbourhoods in Rio, like Copacabana and Ipanema, but I definitely prefer Botafogo now after my stay at David's and Rany's place. It is definitely more comfortable and cooler. ;) If you are looking for a nice place to stay in Rio where you will feel immediately welcomed, comfortable and "in good hands"- then we would definitely recommend this place to everyone- from young till old. ;) The hosts will be always there with helpful hints and tips to explore Rio in the best way. ;) Hope to be back soon.

  • I arranged for my boss Rozina to stay in the house while on a long business trip in Rio. From the very first enquiry David was very informative and helpful. In the run up to Rozina’s arrival he was organised and also amenable with regards to meeting times to show Rozina the house and settle her in. During Rozina’s stay, he was available for any additional queries we had and was prompt in arranging extra amenities in the house.

    Rozina found the house to be just as described and a great convenient location for her business requirements while still being close to the wonderful beaches that Rio has to offer. She would definitely recommend the house especially with such a welcoming and helpful host in David.

    Here are some of Rozina's comments: "David was super sweet, super helpful - went the extra mile helping me with directions, yoga, carnival advice.
    The house and facilities were also great - wifi, printer, fully stocked fridge/larder... better than being at home!"

  • This house is awesome! It's in a great location with lots of great bars/restaurants around, clean, comfortable and the shared building is gated. We didn't get a chance to meet David but, Rany was there to meet us to give us the key, show the house and recommend a restaurant close by. They respond to emails quickly and are very friendly and kept in contact with us throughout our stay. The internet is INSANELY fast which was great. We would defiantly stay here again.

  • For our second time in Rio we stay with 2 friends at David and Rany’s house.
    Arriving from Dubai, David send us a cab waiting for us at the airport, Ramos a Brazilian taxi driver really awesome, who used to work with him.
    Then we arrive at the place, where Rany were waiting for us, she gave us great advices about what to do and where to go, we recommend the lounge bar Mesa, just by the house, they serve amazing caipinhas and food!
    About the place, it is a real house many space, furniture and decoration are nice, in a town like Rio where nature and outdoor activities are numerous staying in a house make the difference. We made our own BBQ in the place.
    As David description the location is perfect because very central of all activities you can do in Rio, and you have many restaurants and shops nearby, Humaita part of Bogafogo is like the “bobo” area as Greenwich village in NY or le Marais in Paris.
    It was a perfect Airbnb experience ! I love Riooo !
