  • Ricardo's Atelier is out of this world! Loved the open concept, the view, the large amounts of light! Great way to see and live Rio! Ricardo was kind, helpful and quick to respond to our messages. The location is also good - right by the Selaron steps. I highly recommend you stay at this unique apartment!

  • This place is brilliant! Ricardo has created something truly unique and cool. So many nice touches and details (including access to a great collection of vinyl)... you can tell that your hosts really want you to have a wonderful stay. Just a few minutes away from the Escadaria Selarón and Lapa, so really easy to get to, even late at night. And Ricardo is wonderful: friendly, accommodating and very helpful.

    I have travelled many places and stayed in many a space; this is one of the coolest. Book it and have a wonderful time in the Cidade Maravilhosa.

  • Ricardo and Rachel are great hosts. Their place is just in the heart of Santa Teresa, a few steps from Lapa. The best place for enjoying Carnival... Even when you're home you're still partying thanks to the open architecture of the flat. The noise was not that much of a problem for us, but don't expect to get quiet, at least during the Carnival week.

  • Ricardo's Varandão is perfectly located, has a stunning view, and the interior décor is beautiful. He and his family are very helpful and hospitable. I highly recommend Santa Teresa in general and this place in special.

  • Aw man this apartment is nice!
    Very good view. Very good fresh breeze of air which is much needed. Super location in the desirable Santa Teresa district and right nearby the pulsating Lapa area. The walk up the famous staircase is an exercise but it is pretty. Internet was a bit unstable, but it does work which is great. Filtered water from the tab - nice! Record collection and turntable in the room, very very nice - there is a decent collection of MPB records and some rock and pop classics too. Ricardo lives next door and is very helpful and open and speaks English. Go up the hill to the corner shop for pizzas and beer and cozy times.

  • The terrace is beautiful, great views over Rio. Only a few minutes walk from the Selaron steps, and walk up the hill to Santa Teresa. It's obvious that Ricardo has put a lot of thought into making the Veranda very homely, and it's full of nice little touches that give it charm. Ricardo himself was very friendly and helpful also. I'd definitely recommend this place for a romantic few nights away with the missus.

  • The coolest place I ever lived on a Holiday! Fantastic wiev over Rio. Downstairs, the Lapa stairs and the charming area below, uphill, Santa Thereza, with nice, pittoresk restaurant. The appartment, perfectly spotted to avoid the heat, perfectly decorate with fantastic Feng shui. The landlord, Ricardo, really cool and easy to agree with.

    January 2014
  • This is a beautiful place on the rooftop with great views over Rio and located near the famous stairs of Lapa with walking distance to the restaurants up in Santa Teresa. Ricardo is also very helpful, the only problem we had was a very wifi connection throughout our stay.
