Unusually nice home near the hub of all the major transportation routes both in Rio and for the rest of Brazil. Large communal kitchen and large communal living room. Very large patio area with a garden where we grow flowers, herbs, and veggies.

You have access to your private room, and the communal bathrooms, living room and kitchen, as well as the outdoor areas, including our hammock!

  • What a lovely, lovely, lovely host! We could not have been more looked after if we had been with our parents. Silvia is such a caring person that you can't help but love her.
    The house is very close to the main bus station so if you are wanting to stay near to where you get in from the airport this is ideal. Nearly all the buses pass on the street outside so getting to other locations is not difficult, or expensive and because the house is at the back you do not get the traffic noise.However, I would suggest that if you plan on visiting Copacabana and area everyday you may want to find somewhere closer to that area. If you have tickets to the Sambadrome then this would also be a good location as staying out of the area it would be very hard to get to. I am guessing that travel will be a problem when the football is on in June, so if you have tickets for the Maracana Stadium this would (email hidden) to stay as if you get really stuck with the traffic you will be able to walk! Even if you think it will be OK to stay somewhere else and get the tube/metro I would not advise it. At one point there was a queue about a mile long to get into the tube/metro station and another was closed.
    Silvia speaks very good English, and her husband is American so his English needs some work (sorry Jeffery) and they will both help you get around and offer you good advice. This is a smoking household so if you suffer badly from asthma you may want to be aware of this.
    The room in which we stayed had 2 single beds and although there is only one shower we never found this to be a problem. Wifi is possible by 'borrowing' a neighbours, although it does not work all the time.
    As an experience overall we are glad we stayed with Silvia. Thank you to both of you xx
