The Space

This lovely flat is located in Cosme Velho, a traditional neighborhood located in the southern zone of Rio de Janeiro, at the bottom of the Corcovado Mountain.

It features:
- room with a comfy double bed, side table, shelves, hanger and chair;
- living room with open plan kitchen with cooking facilities, cooker and fridge;
- toilet with power shower;
- wi-fi and ceiling fan.

All in a quiet atmosphere, with complete privacy and large windows to a lovely view and private patio.

You will not find a place like this in Rio. You'll be surrounded by an Atlantic Forest Garden in the center of the city. You may even get to see monkeys and toucans!

The flat sits in the garden of a house but it has complete privacy including a private entrance. There are 4 flats in total plus the main house and there is always someone around to help guests with anything they need in this quiet, safe, homely atmosphere.

And if action is what you want it is minutes away. It is only 20 minutes away from Rio's Historic Center, Lapa, Santa Tereza and the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema.

There are many transport links around - bus stops are only 2 minutes away, you can easily get a cab or if you prefer the nearest tube station is Largo do Machado.

Please note that there are two dogs in the main house. They are really nice and friendly and you will see them playing around.

Please contact us before booking. We are very flexible and will try to accommodate your needs so you can have a wonderful stay. Please get in touch.

Thank you!

  • My farewell words to Paula and Miguel , owners of the property - "I am so glad and grateful to have booked this place. The location proved to be a perfect haven to recharge from the bustle of Rio and the world cup fiesta. The flat became a home away from home with my needs and request attended to sincerely, efficiently and lovingly.

    For those looking to wake up to the sounds of Rio waves, this location might not be ideal, albeit the energy of the land, the trees and the hosts including Consuelo is inviting ,warm and welcoming making all else fade in comparison. And if you are seeking times of absolute silence - barking dogs could pose disturbance - which for me is part of the music of life.

    The space was adequate to accommodate my son and me comfortably for 2 weeks.The patio nestled by the lush indigenous Brazilian fruit trees became my zen zone. The location offers a deep generous connection to nature sights and sounds ... the feel is organic and artistic.....with soul and character.

    Safety and convenience was added benefit of this residential area- bus stop 5 minutes down the slope and all other modes of transport easily accessible. Lots of restaurants, convenience stores and Largo de Machado metro station at walking distance brought ease to our stay.

    Thank you Consuelo, Miguel and Paula for all your help and loving hospitality.
