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.

The space

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.

Veronica and her boyfriend Julio have been very nice hosts. They showed me their beautiful neighboorhood, we went to the beach together and Veronica gave me lots of helpful advices what to visit in Rio. They made me feel very comfortable and welcomed at their home. Everything was easygoing and there haven't been any problems. They also have been very patient with my horrible portuguese, which I tried to improve during my stay.

Veronica and Giulio were amazing hosts, delightful and interesting kind of people to live with and spend time with. They not only helped me with everything but also invited me to eat pizza - without ketchup :) - and drink some beers in a very charm restaurant of Santa Teresa. Thank you very much for making my stay in Rio a pleasant one.

Veronica is a really fantastic host!! She was always really helpful and would leave me notes telling me where to find the best beaches, places, and bars in Rio. The apartment is big and clean, in a very cool neighbourhood, walking distance to some awesome restaurants and bars. I didn't feel unsafe to walk home from the bar at night. I met some great people and had an awesome time.

Staying at Veronica's was nothing apart from fantastic, the most charming house in a very lovely and friendly part of Rio that everyone who visits the city. Veronica herself was the most helpful and delightful person to live with and spend time with, not to mention her unrivalled knowledge and insight of this wonderful and complex city. Thank you so much for such a great stay.

Without Veronica, her hospitality, and her beautiful place we would have probably gotten the same typical tourist experience everyone gets. I can go on about the area and its people, but I think Veronica has already nailed it in her description. The house is very unique. Even though it's an old house, it has been renovated and kept very clean. It's a kind of place that you can feel at home after a little while. So I def recommend it if you are looking for an extended stay. Veronica's friendliness and helpfulness definitely surpassed my expectations. You get the warmhearted, down to earth attributes of her as well as the professionalism of a hotel manager. I'll also guaranty that you'll love KING GATO (her cat) Ask Veronica about Paragliding. This is a MUST DO in Rio. You won't regret it.

To begin with, Veronica could not have been a better host. The room and house are exactly like the pictures. The bed is comfortable and you have plenty of room to yourself. Veronica is incredibly helpful in suggesting things to do and places to go in the city that might be different than what tourist-y guidebooks would say. You're much more likely to experience the real Rio staying with someone like Veronica. Also, the neighborhood is awesome. Santa Teresa has a completely different look and feel from the rest of Rio, and it was a treat to explore it for a few weeks. There are great restaurants and bars all within walking distance. Plus, there are easy transportation options from the square right near her house to get anywhere you need to in the city. I would recommend this host and this house completely. Veronica made my first three weeks in Rio fantastic and I cannot recommend her, her house and her neighborhood any more highly.

I'm carioca, born and raised in Rio, and I work with enviromental science. I love to do sports, to meet new people, and to travel as much as possible. I'm friendly, eager to help and to show people the best of my city, which includes non-tourist spots. Unfortunately nothing is for free and the city is very expensive now, even for us locals.
