Very airy and spacious house overlooking the Corcovado (Christ the Redeemer) and spacious living room and kitchen. Are two shared bathrooms and an exclusive suite.
Here guests can experience the real Rio de Janeiro through the eyes of a legitimate Rio! I am a friendly person and very attentive.
Although the address is defined as Gloria, my house is in the heart of Catete, very close to the museum of the Republic, former residence of the Presidents of Brazil. It is a neighborhood with many shops, markets, restaurants and cinema. Also still have the Flamengo Park, which is a huge green area and reference point for leisure Rio.
Close to subway and several bus stops, is a very central region where one can go to Lapa (the bohemian neighborhood of Rio) or Copacabana in a matter of minutes.
Não é permitido receber visitas ou trazer qualquer pessoa que não esteja no acordo de hospedagem.
After passing house #11 on the street, not finding #13, then figuring out that we had to continue up hill 40 meters to the stairs at the next corner walk up them and make a little U turn to Cae's place at #13 above, everything was very easy. Cae allowed us to arrive early and immediately made us feel welcome. He was very helpful in all things, an excellent host. The room was comfortable and made more so with the AC. It was hot in Rio during Carnival. Everyone that came through, Ukrainians, French, Brits and especially lovely Yvette, was very interesting, outgoing and considerate. Yvette had stayed with Cae several times before, had learned Portuguese, spoke excellent English and had become part of the family. Cae and I could communicate well in Spanish but Yvette's translations and knowledge of the area etc. proved very helpful also. Cae's father was living there and was always in good humor, inquisitive and a delight, introducing us to his two 56 year old tortoises. Cae assured us that the neighborhood was quite safe. We never felt at all unsafe, even when walking up the street at 3 am after Carnival. Everything you need is close by and it is very convenient to all Rio has to offer. Thankfully, Cae was able to accommodate us for the three extra nights we wanted to stay. At every turn, Cae was helpful in whatever way he could be, even making sure we got a cab at 6:30 am to take us to the bus station.
We stayed for 3 nights at Cae's house in Rio. As a host, he is more than a person who rents rooms: he took full care of us, inviting us to all the activities he attended for the carnival, giving recommendationes about the city and doing always things a good friend would do for you, like the present he gave us at the end of the stay and the reception he provided when we went back to take our lugagge after checking out.
The house was in a great location, close to the metro and Lapa neighborhood. The house is warm and they make you feel like home always. The room was perfectly climatized and with an awesome view to the Corcovado!
His father deserves a special recognition: we will simply miss him!
Great accommodation and great human beings. We hope to host them in Santiago!
Caê é um ótimo anfitrião! Já havia me hospedado com ele anteriormente e fiquei tão satisfeito que, quando voltei ao Rio este ano, não tive dúvidas de onde me hospedar. Muito solícito, ofereceu tudo o que precisávamos, nos deu boas dicas de passeio e nos acompanhou em noites na Lapa e no Salgueiro. Muito obrigado e até a próxima, Caê!
Foi ótima a semana que passei na casa de Caê! A casa fica num lugar alto, com uma bela vista e um jeito muito agradável de casa de interior, embora fique a poucos minutos do metrô. As acomodações correspondem à descrição anunciada. O anfitrião, uma pessoa muito bacana, educado e gentil, mostrou-se sempre disposto a tornar agradável minha estadia e dos demais hóspedes, dispondo-se a mostrar lugares e atrações da (website hidden) me senti como se estivesse em casa. Penso em voltar a hospedar-me nesta casa, quando voltar ao Rio. Valeu, Caê, obrigada por sua atenção!
We arrived by taxi at Caê's place, a nice house on a hill of Catete. Caê welcomed us warmly with a drink and a snack. We had a room at the second floor, with a nice view on the Corcovado. The room was clean, with a big bathroom. The neighbourhood is very save, with lot's of shops and restaurants, which Caê showed us at our arrival. He gave us explanations and advice for every question we had. We could easily talk in english together, which was useful for us, since our portuguese is very bad. On saturday evening he invited us for a drink in Lapa. Thanks Caê for your friendship, we felt like at home.
I would recommend to everybody to stay at Caê's place: he is a very friendly and helpful host and his place is perfectly situated in Rio, close to a metro station, in a save quarter and not far away of Rio's highlights.
Superbe maison située sur les hauteurs en plein Catete. La chambre est propre et suffisamment équipée, avec une vue sur le Christ Rédempteur et les habitations en contrebas. Le lit est un peu dur, mais il est possible d'y rajouter un matelas supplémentaire pour plus de confort.
Quartier paisible où l'on peut se balader sans crainte. Le métro est à deux pas et tous les points d'intérêts de la ville sont facilement atteignables à partir de là.
Quant à l'accueil de Caê, c'est un vrai bonheur. Très sympathique, il a su nous mettre à l'aise, a toujours été attentif à nos besoins.
Il nous a fait visiter le quartier, et il nous a proposé de nombreuses sorties, dont une rencontre de samba que nous ne sommes pas prêts d'oublier. C'est une véritable chance d'être tombé sur lui. Sans aucun doute le meilleur hôte que nous ayons rencontré!
Nous vous le recommandons à 200%!
Pasamos muy lindo en la casa de caê ! venimos con nuestro bebe de 14 meses. Caê es muy amable y la casa es genial, teniamos vista al corcovado del cuarto! El barrio es muy lindo y accesible en metro es un lugar muy central y con animation para conocer Rio. Muchas gracias Caê por recibirnos y sobre todo para llevarnos al maracanã el partido fue memorable!!!

Sou uma pessoa tranquila que curte musica, cinema, fotografia, esporte e principalmente a natureza. Gosto muito de viajar e conhecer pessoas, lugares e culturas.
Quero poder receber pessoas que se interessem pelo Rio de Janeiro.
Ser gentil, hospitaleiro, educado, honesto pra mim é obrigação.
Quem vier será bem recebido.
