About this listing
This is my house and I'll be more than happy to host you! I'm friendly, respectful and love to entertain my guests! I can give you all the best tips and show you a non-turistic Rio. If you have any doubts, just get in touch.
This antique house (sobrado) from 1860 with high ceilings (5 m) is located close to Largo das Neves in Santa Teresa.
It has 2 bedrooms, plus a tv/living room, an office, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and a peaceful back yard. The best thing about this house is that you are very close to Lapa and Downtown, but once you enter through the front door, you feel like it's a small town. Both bedrooms have access to the back yard which has trees, a small herb garden, a chill out corner, a hammock (rede) and a hose for the summer days.
This place is perfect for people who work in the center, like to party in Lapa, or just want to know a traditional and charming neighborhood.
If you are looking for a place for the world cup, my house is about 15-20 min distance to Maracanã stadium with at least 3 bus options.
Santa Teresa has several bars and restaurants, and is very central, and this area in particular has a variaty of buses.
I've lived in the U.S. and Europe and I know the difference that a nice enviroment can make when you're on the road for a while. Some people you know along the way stays on your memory much longer than the places you've seen.
So, no matter if you are a foreigner, or Brazilian, if know Rio or not, I can help you with the best tips about places, restaurant, sunset, cold beer and juices in Rio. Here, you will have a unique expirience.
Interaction with Guests
I'm a friendly person and I'm available for any questions or doubts you might have!
I can say that Santa Teresa has character! it looks like you are not in Rio for a second. It has charming narrow streets with old houses, great views, lots of bars and restaurants. You can be walking down the streets and meet a band playing. It's an artistic and bohemian place.
There are two bus lines inside Santa Teresa, and once you get down the strairs you have a great variaty of buses and subway that will take you anywhere in Rio! The tram is also working again.
I would like to think that you will take care of my things like they were your own! But basically, the rule are: if you don't know how it works, ask; please smoke in the open areas; always lock the door on the way out, and don't kill the cat! The rest, we can work it out together!
