  • I stayed at the unit with Suellen and Marcos. They were very kind to welcoming me in their house. They took me out for lunch on Sunday, the Maracana stadium and a drive by the national park. They were very good hosts.
    It was great staying at their house. The neighborhood is safe and the street well illuminated. The only issue I had was wifi interruption in the last two days other than that all was fine. Thatiana herself was very helpful and kind making my stay possible. She bakes very good cakes.

  • La experiencia en The Art Gallery House fue increíble ! logró que la semana en Rio fuera maravillosa.
    La casa antigua muy bien reconstituida esta preparada para un lindo pasar. La zona es pintoresca cerca del casco antiguo, se ve la ciudad desde lo alto, algo muy bello.

    Thatiana es una anfitriona excelente, siempre esta atenta a lo que necesitan sus huéspedes. Nos llamo la atención la cantidad de comidas y postres ricos que tenía siempre preparado para nosotros.

    Hemos encontrado nuestro lugar en Rio !!

  • Gostaria de agradecer imensamente pela recepção e cordialidade! Tive uma semana corrida, ou seja, parei pouco na casa, no entanto, mesmo assim, Thatiana sempre foi muito atenciosa e comunicativa! Em sua casa me senti muito à vontade e por isso, nas próximas vezes que eu for ao Rio não hesitarei em nenhum momento de ficar em sua casa, caso haja disponibilidade! Recomendo a todos (as) aqueles (as) que tiverem interesse e, com certeza, recomendarei aos meus amigos que forem à cidade. Sou grato de verdade por pensar no próximo, no coletivo. Um grande ser humano.

  • A Thatiana é uma excelente anfitriã! Está sempre pronta pra dar muitas dicas do que fazer, onde ir e como ir. Não tenho palavras pra agradecer toda a ajuda que recebi dela, antes e durante minha estadia. Ela é muito agilizada e preocupada em tratar seus hóspedes muito bem e a casa está sempre limpa e organizada. O Morro da Conceição é um lugar seguro e muito bem localizado, além de ser muito charmoso! Tem fácil acesso e é perto de muitos pontos turísticos do Rio. Super recomendo!!!! Obrigada por tudo, Thati!!!

  • Passei ótimos dias hospedada na Happy House da Thatiana. Adorei a atmosfera da casa, e a sempre atenciosa anfitriã. Ela também soube me dar privacidade e ao mesmo tempo disponível se eu precisasse dela. Infelizmente fui a trabalho, mas gostaria de ter tempo de usar as ótimas dicas do Rio de Janeiro da Thatiana, vários pontos turísticos e culturais estão bem próximos da casa. Quanto à localização – num morro - também quero adicionar que é um local seguro e tranquilo. Sempre é bom levar o “como chegar” para indicar aos motoristas de taxi.

    I have spent great days at Thatiana's Happy House. I loved the house atmosphere and the attentive and helpful host. She also let me have my privacy while being there if I needed her. Unfortunately I was traveling for work, but I wish I had more time to make good use of the great Rio de Janeiro tips from Thatiana, several touristic and cultural locations are nearby. As for the where the house is – a “morro” - I would like to add that it is a safe and calm area. It is always good to keep the “how to get to the house” handy as some taxi drivers don't know where Morro da Conceição is.

  • Accueil très chaleureux, appartement propre et agréable. Hôte disponible et conciliante (possibilité de parler en anglais). Emplacement pratique pour le carnaval, et bien desservi pour accéder aux sites touristiques. Accès direct en bus pour les plages.

    Warm welcome, pleasant and clean apartment. A receptive and conciliatory host (english speaking). Good location for the carnaval, and well served location, direct access to the beaches and turists sites with the bus.

  • My experience with Thatiana was better than I could have imagined!!! From the time we booked, Thatiana provided a vast amount of details and support to assist us on our journey. She even wrote out personalized directions for the taxi driver to locate her place of residence. The morning before our travels began, we connected via WhatsApp and were able to communicate freely, where she shared great enthusiasm about our pending arrival.
    When our taxi driver arrived (after deciding to take his own route to the home), Thatiana was outside and presented a warm and genuine greeting, showing us around the home, our room, and even sharing with us the food she'd prepared for all those scheduled to stay there! Our stay was brief but Thatiana was our master planner in ensuring we got the most out of our stay. SHE KNEW WHERE EVERYTHING WAS FOR CARNAVAL! This resource was invaluable. We were able to navigate the bus, taxi and train system with Thatiana's direction and guidance (and the maps and books she offers to those who stay there). We truly connected with Thatiana about Brazilian culture, where she shared her insight about the history of many of the places we visited. We even danced with Thatiana at a Bloco (Block party during carnaval in the neighborhood where she lives), we took pictures and truly established an invaluable friendship and she made a BRAZILIAN feast for all those visiting! It was delicious! Whenever we were with any questions or needed support, Thatiana was attentive and available (sun up to sun down).She gave us suggestions on how to arrange our daily itineraries and the best place to shop for souvenirs!
    When it was time for our departure, Thatiana arranged our taxi ride back and when the taxi driver had some trouble reaching her home (because of street blockages due to Carnaval) Thatiana arranged for an alternate meeting location and ran with us with all our luggage to our taxi! SHE IS ABSOLUTELY amazing, warm, engaging and truly dedicated to ensuring you have a meaningful trip to Brazil! I would recommend anyone staying in Rio to room with Thatiana for a lifetime experience. When I return, I will be staying with THATIANA!!!!

  • Nuestra estadía en la casa de Thatiana fue agradable. La casa es amplia y cómoda, se encuentra en una zona segura, volvimos de noche tarde varias veces y no tuvimos ningún problema. Thatiana es una persona encantadora, nos ayudó mucho indicándonos lugares, horarios, líneas de buses, etc. Le gusta cocinar y eso redundó en beneficio de los que estábamos hospedados. Recomiendo plenamente a la anfitriona y su casa.

  • Thatiana is a terrific hostess and a wonderful lady, and my stay at her house was a delight. She is upbeat, positive, full of knowledge and enthusiasm for her city, while at the same time keeping a very balanced and objective view of things. A traveler herself, she will give you recommendations that are tailored to your tastes and interests, and you can learn a lot about Rio from talking to her -- she is really smart and speaks her mind. The house is cosy and very charming, and set up in such a way that you can have as much privacy or be as social as you like. It's also very conveniently located, and, in the Rio summer, much cooler than the city streets. I would be very happy to stay at Thatiana's again on my next visit!

Although graduated in Management I worked for 11 years as sales woman. Currently I've been working as an independent real estate agent . Travelling, beach, samba are my passion. I lived in Australia and Israel and have been in Turkey, Cambodia, Malasia, Laos, Thailand, Japan, Argentina, Chile and Bolívia. They are just the beginning... I enjoy taking people around to see the Cidade Maravilhosa ( The Wonderful City ), taking care of my garden where there are flowers, a vine and herbs that I use for cooking, trying new recipes and a cold waterfall dip in a hot day in Rio. I am literally very colorful and so is my house. Some review written by my guests: "Thatiana was attentive, friendly, helpful, beautiful, kind, communicative, respectful, responsive and caring." Celeste "Thatiana herself is just wonderful! She's helpful, informative, hospitable and also well travelled" (email hidden) casa da Thatiana foi ótima. Ela é uma pessoa muito atenciosa e prestativa. Sempre preocupada com o bem estar dos seus hóspedes, à disposição para ajudar no que for preciso..." Weverton "Thatiana is a wonderful host and makes a big effort to ensure your stay in Rio is enjoyable. She's welcoming and relaxed and has a genuine interest in meeting people from around the world. She'll give you heaps of info on the neighbourhood, the transport connections , supermarkets, bars and cafes." Vincent "La habitación es tal y como se ve en las fotos, pero lo que es más que recomendable es la dueña de la casa. Una persona muy servicial que se desvive por hacerte la vida fácil, cómoda y sobre todo que te esesora cómo y dónde ir adaptándose a la mentalidad de cada tipo de viajero. Personalmente me siento muy privilegiado por haber podido visitar Río de Janeiro con esta maravillosa guía local. " Nacho "Thatiana is a very easygoing girl, very helpful and kind. She enjoys meeting people and shared nice conversations and even drinks. Always nice to meet people with an happy soul as her. " Antonio "Thatiana is very friendly and helpful host!

João Paulo "A anfitriã ... fantástica, praticamente uma guia cultural, deu todas as informações necessárias para se locomover pela cidade (trajetos de ônibus, itinerários, horários, metrô, ruas , bairros, tudo!), além de sugerir vários pontos culturais alternativos da cidade para sair do óbvio. Extremamente cordial e culta, atendeu e esclareceu toda e qualquer dúvida a respeito de sua região e das demais." Daniel "Thatiana is a wonderful host. From the minute I arrived she made me feel at home with here sparkling personality and colorful house." Frank
