The Space

**Please write us a message before booking**
Also, important:
** WORLD CUP PRICING: We only do packages for the World Cup period, which start from R$2000 per room (assuming a 5 day stay)! Do write us though even if you have a shorter stay, because we may be able to prorate that :)
** The rates quoted here (during the non-World Cup period) are assuming that there will be 2 people in the room. If you are a single person, the rate for a private room is R$110.

Thanks and look forward to hosting you :)

We are located on a safe street in an historic district - right between Glória and Santa Teresa. The house is convenient to many of Rio's attractions, and is a nice walk into the heart of Lapa or Santa Teresa. It's also very close to Flamengo park, a beautiful place to walk, bike, and enjoy the scenery and beach. It's a 10 minute walk to the metro station and lots of buses, so you can easily visit any of the city's beautiful beaches and many wonderful sights!

Guest Access

Our house has comfortable rooms, clean private bathrooms, a big kitchen with all of the pots and pans you need to cook your own meals, and, of course, WIFI! We also have a nice old record player with a bunch of Brazilian records and an extra skateboard to lend. The house has just 3 rooms (we live in one!) and lots of comfortable common areas throughout the house. Best of all, there are three gorgeous terraces with beautiful views and lots of space to sit in the sun, relax, socialize, or eat.

Interaction with Guests

We live in the house, and we love to take our guests with us to lots of different events and places in the city, from street samba to fruit and vegetable markets. Feel free to join us for a slice of daily life in Rio!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Great place to stay in Rio,
    Close to the nightlife of Lapa and 10 mins from the metro so easy to get to the beaches on Copacabana and Ipanema.
    The house is really cool, it has everything you need.
    Santa Theresa is perfectly safe and a great place to stay. Sarah and Andre are great hosts welcoming and friendly.
    They are happy to make recommendations on where to go and even took me on a few nights out to the local bars and street parties.
    Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Rio!
    Highly recommended.

  • We had such a good time in this amazing cool house. We were there for carnival, but had a hard time leaving our top roof veranda. The accomodation was way over our expectations.
    The neighbourhood was really soft and close to the subway.
    Sarah and Andre was superfriendly and always up to answer our questions of Rio. We had a really good time with them. If we ever go back we book this place again. Strongly recommended!

  • This is a fantastic place to stay, especially when just arriving in Rio. Sarah and Andre are really lovely people who will go out of their way to look after you and can give you all the insider local knowledge.

    I stayed on the 3rd floor, which is pretty much an entire apartment. You have your own double bedroom (with AC), bathroom, lounge and a balcony.

    Its a really pretty house with lots of charm and is located in a nice, safe, quiet, central location, with excellent transport links, and as mentioned, Sarah and Andre are super nice. Highly recommended!

  • Sarah and André are those great companions you could just live together forever. Easy-going, relaxed and very friendly. And they are always ready to make your evenings funnier, looking for cool stuff going on town or just preparing some caipirinhas to hang out in the house. We've stayed a whole month in the house and we had great time. The room is actually the whole upper floor, with a fantastic balcony. The location is also great, up in a street directly from Glória/Catete, one of the best neighborhoods of Rio. Everything is walking distance. I couldn't think of a better place to recommend while in Rio.

    Sarah e André, foi um grande prazer conhecer vocês!

Welcome everyone! I live here in Rio with my boyfriend, so you'll meet both of us if you stay here. He is a doctor and Brazilian, and I'm an ESL teacher/writer/artist and a US (Maryland) native. Between us, we've lived in Brazil, Canada, Colombia, France, the Philippines, Portugal, and lots of others! So we're travelers, too :) We both volunteer in Rio with different projects, and love art and samba. Come experience Rio with us!!
