The Space

Suite of 25m2 in historic house, located in the central part of Santa Teresa, near the main shops, restaurants, sights, and bars of the neighborhood. The room is in the backyard of a typical brazilian family's house but It has a separate entrance and a private bathroom. It's furnished with a double and a single bed, a wardrobe, a sofa, a table with chairs, air conditioning, fridge and ceiling fan. The garden is a very nice place where the guest can relax enjoying himself with the beauty of vegetation and birds singing.
We offer a delicious breakfast with hand made breads, cakes, juices and jellies, prepared in our house with top-quality products. For those who are fan of organic vegetarian diet, there's the option (email hidden) juice made ​​with wheat grass, sunflower sprouts and organic vegetables harvested in kitchengarden.
We also offer bed linen and towels, cleaning service and wi-fi, at no additional charge.
Santa Teresa is known to be a neighborhood of artists and intelectuals, with a very rich and peculiar cultural life and very interesting place to go just walking, as Parque das Ruinas and Museo Castro Maya. For those who really like to walk, it' possible get Corcovado step by step (aproximately 1hour and half), in a amazing journey.
It's very easy to access to public transportation from the house: the bus stop is just 2min and the metro 10min walking.

  • Where do I begin? I'm so indebted to Beatriz and her family. She is such an amazing host and made us feel so welcomed. Upon our arrival, I knew immediately that I not only picked a fantastic host but also a great neighborhood. Santa Teresa doesn't disappoint; it's such a cute meets gritty, bohemian/artsy community. As two American girls traveling to Rio for the first time (to take part in the World Cup festivities), my friend and I felt safe the whole time in ST. Of course like anywhere in this world, you'll still need to be smart and use common sense, especially at night but overall it was a very pleasant experience. The only "down side" I'd say would be getting down the hill to the main town (pun intended). You'll need to catch a bus or cab - or take a great pair of tennis shoes to walk down the cobblestone hills. Really just adds more to ST's charming character. I would come back in a heartbeat! I already miss Beatriz and her delish breakfasts she makes her guests in the morning. Be sure to stop by the local organic cafe to have THE BEST acai bowl with granola on top for a refreshing breakfast/lunch/or after dinner dessert. And their cheese bread is to die for - thanks for getting me hooked Beatriz! Already going through acai withdrawals! :)) A million thanks for your generous hospitality Beatriz. You are a friend for life!

  • It's hard to imagine a better Rio option than staying with Beatriz in the heart of lovely Santa Teresa. This has to be the coolest place to stay in the cty with it's funky bars, arty atmosphere and charming cobbled streets. Beatriz is the perfect host, sharing her extensive knowledge of the neighbourhood and city - not to mention her lovely breakfasts - homemade bread, yoghurt, granola, jam and fresh fruit etc. I would recommend staying here to anyone who values authenticity above staying in a soul-less hotel.

  • What a beautiful family. Beatriz was very warm and welcoming. She was extremely helpful with tips on how to navigate our way around Rio Each morning we were presented with her homemade bread, cakes and yoghurt - delicious! After touring the beautiful city of Rio it was a pleasure to take the bus up the hill to this peaceful, 'bohemian' little town. Highly recommend. Thanks for everything. Harry and Libby

  • I cannot say enough good things about Beatriz and her beautiful home! Her genuine hospitality made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. Beatriz went out of her way to be helpful and made sure our stay was as nice as possible. She also makes delicious home-made bread and jam, so the breakfasts are healthy and delightful!

    The suite is spotless, spacious, and tastefully decorated. The air-conditioning is also a life-saver in the Rio summer heat. Everything is exactly as described. Wifi works great.

    The location is excellent. Santa Tereza is a charming neighborhood, and the house sits on a quiet street half a block from the strip where the best bars and restaurants of the neighborhood are located. Beatriz and her family have been there for decades so they know the area very well.

    I highly recommend you treat yourself to a stay at this wonderful Santa Tereza home.

  • A estadia na casa de Beatriz foi um (email hidden) pela casa e pelo bairro que são muito acolhedores! é realmente uma típica casa de família brasileira. O quarto é de tamanho ótimo e estrategicamente anexo ao casarão antigo, o que permite total independência e conforto ao hospede. O café da manha servido por Beatriz é sensacional, pães que ela mesma faz lá com ingredientes que ela própria cultiva no seu jardim. De quebra aprendemos sobre algumas plantas e seus benefícios para a saúde. Além de toda a atenção e conforto que recebemos, sentimos uma troca enorme de gentileza e amizade, fazendo-nos sentir em casa. Voltaremos sempre! :)

  • I cannot recommend staying here highly enough. Beatriz and her family are the perfect hosts, they really made me feel at home, they helped me with anything and everything. Beatriz's breakfast is beautiful and healthy and she has inspired me to make juices revert morning. The room is amazing clean, light and homely and in a perfect location in the cool neighbourhood of Santa Theresa with loads of cute bars and restaurants and a lovely walk into be city or Christ the Redeemer. I know if you stay here you will love it as much as I did!

  • Beatriz fue la anfitriona perfecta. Nos brindó a mi esposo y a mí comodidad, limpieza y un desayuno muy completo; con pan integral preparado por ella misma, café, leche y jugo exprimido de naranja, frutas, etc. También nos escribía, día a día, el itinerario aconsejable para llevar a cabo las excursiones que hicimos. Hasta nos aconsejó ir a Niteroi donde está el Museo de Arte Contemporáneo diseñado por el Arquitecto Niemayer. Santa Teresa es un barrio muy pintoresco con muchas calles que suben y bajan, pero hay colectivos que te llevan y traen sin inconvenientes. Te llevan a Lapa, Gloria y al centro de Rio de Janeiro, donde edificios monumentales de épocas pasadas conviven con otros nuevos y modernos.
    Estaremos siempre agradecidos por el trato recibido!
